Vices Are Not Crimes 
Vices are those acts by which a man harms himself or his property. Crimes are those acts by which one man harms the person or property of another. Vices are simply the errors which a man makes in his search after his own happiness. Unlike crimes, they imply no malice toward others, and no interference with their persons or property. In vices, the very essence of crime — that is, the design to injure the person or property of another — is wanting. It is a maxim of the law that there can be no crime without a criminal intent; that is, without the intent to invade the person or property of another. But no one ever practices a vice with any such criminal intent. He practices his vice for his own happiness solely, and not from any malice toward others.

Silver Price Optimist or Pessimist?
DISCLOSURE:  This article was written for Miles Franklin by Gary Christenson. Miles Franklin sells silver and believes that silver is under-valued. Prices will rise in coming years. I share that belief. Regardless, this article presents both optimistic and pessimistic interpretations for future silver prices. SILVER  PRICES  OPTIMIST: DEMAND:  Silver demand increases every year and will push prices higher. Our modern world depends upon electronics, computers, missiles, fighter jets, cruise missi

US-China Trade War Escalates As Further Measures Are Taken
– Trade war between two superpowers continues to escalate– White House likely to impose steep tariffs on aluminium and steel imports on ‘national security grounds’– US may impose global tariff of at least 24% on imports of steel and 7.7% on aluminium– China “will certainly take necessary measures to protect our legitimate rights.”– China is USA’s largest trading partner, fastest-growing market for U.S. exports, 3rd largest market for U.S. exports in the world.– If the U.S. continues to escalate

Village of Widows
Canada has become a leader in the movement against the racism practiced against indigenous peoples that has so long been common practice in much of the world. Is it possible that Ottawa will really follow the lead of Alberta and other provinces by recognizing the rights given to aboriginal people in the Constitution without hassle? Such an act would shift cases out of courts into nation-on-nation negotiations. It’s taken 36 years since repatriation of our constitut

GDX Weathers Stock Selloff
The gold miners’ stocks weathered the recent stock-market plunge really well.  As evident in their leading GDX ETF, they were already beaten down before stock markets started falling.  The resulting explosion of fear bled into GDX, forcing it even lower.  Nevertheless, no major technical damage was done.  GDX remained well within its consolidation trend channel and is still within striking distance of a major $25 breakout. Gold stocks’ behavior during stock-mar

Investment Fads 
We have been fascinated by the chart on the publically-traded shares of the Swiss National Bank. Yes, it is the central bank, it trades, it zooms and it is long the latest fad in investing. Fiduciary responsibility being a constriction has become a neglected concept. Their reserves have been committed to equities and the chart records the euphoria of the day. As one would expect the biggest positions include the fad stocks of today. In the 1980s, we first wrote a piece on life insurance compan

We Did It To Ourselves! It’s Time for Change.
Serious problems affect Americans. Problems first, solutions at the end! We did what to ourselves? Our representatives, senators, and Presidents, supposedly acting on our behalf, voted for and created what history has shown are huge monetary and fiscal mistakes. Some will disagree, but consider this partial list: 1 – Central banking and The Federal Reserve Act:  Enough money was spread around Washington D.C. to purchase the passage of this self-serving banking monstrosity. It was signed into law

5 Forces That Will Drive Gold Higher In 2018
Gold prices are rising. They bottomed in December 2015 at $1,046, a year later in December 2016 at $1,124, and again in December 2017 at $1,241. The bull market in gold has shown renewed life, as the bull market in stocks is displaying weakness, old age, and terminal blow-off behavior. 1 – DOLLAR DEVALUATION: Potentially the most important force pushing gold prices higher is the inevitable devaluation of the dollar. Commercial and central banks create debt by “printing” dollars from “thin air” a

Monetary Metals Brief 2018
Predicting the likely path of the prices of the metals in the near term is easy. Just look at the fundamentals. We have invested many man-years in developing the theory, model, and software to calculate it. Every week we publish charts and our calculated fundamental prices. However, predicting the outlook for a longer period of time is much harder. The fundamental shows the relative pressures in the spot and futures markets, but they only show a snapshot. They do not predict how those pressures

Gold Upleg Breaking Out
Gold’s strong upleg accelerated this week, powering to major new breakout highs.  Speculators rushed to buy gold futures following surprising weak-dollar comments from the US Treasury Secretary, which hit the US dollar hard.  That boosted gold to critical technical levels that should really intensify the shift back to bullish psychology.  This mounting gold breakout confirms gold’s bull market is very much alive and well. While this week’s surge put gold on many mo

F. William Engdahl: Breaking Away from the Tyranny of the Dollar ...
Over the past 3-4 years we have witnessed a mass awakening taking place on a global scale. This mass awakening actually began with the Occupy Wall Street movement that immediately, almost instantaneously, went global. It was also crushed about as quickly as it arose. People being fragmented without a common voice and common direction is a great way to kill an uprising. It doesn’t matter as the idea became part of the conversation, the everyday conversation. Movements come and go but ideas don’t

The Blockchain Revolution Is Heading To Space
There is a new wave of coders and hackers looking to upend the entire internet, signaling the start of a brand new space race. No, this isn’t an episode of HBO’s Silicon Valley, this is actually happening. Currently, the internet is built by large centralized services including server owners, data managers, cloud providers, search engines, telecommunication companies, and social media websites. And these entities are beginning to expand their reach. Internet security and net neutrality are quick

Gold and Silver Major Breakout Alert as Dollar Crumbles
With the dollar sliding, technical analyst Clive Maund says the outlook for gold and silver could not be better. Today has been momentous because the dollar has finally broken down from its giant 3-year long Broadening Top pattern, and fundamental developments suggest that it will continue to weaken, and since it has now broken down decisively, the rate is decline is likely to accelerate. These fundamental developments include the imposition of tariffs,

  Some Reflexions on History and Economics 
Nicolas Oresme, a Catholic bishop (1320-1382), studied human behavior with regard to money, which in his time consisted of gold and silver coinage; he was perhaps the first to observe that humans attribute varying valuations to the money that comes into their hands. He stated that holders of gold and silver coins prefer to tender their most deteriorated coins in payments, and retain the most bright, shiny and perfect of their coins. Thus, he was the true originator of what has come to be known a

Thoughts on gold and humanity 
The supply of gold is largely misunderstood. According to MSM, gold supply is what is mined every year and brought to market – about 2,500 tonnes. This is a big mistake. The supply of gold is calculated at about 170,000 tonnes, made up of virtually all the gold ever mined since mankind took notice of its existence as shiny yellow pebbles in sand “placers” in riverbeds. Every ounce –every gram - of this supply is owned by someone, either a person or an institution. This brings up another point,

GDX $25 Breakout on Earnings
The world’s leading gold-stock ETF is nearing a major upside breakout from key technical levels.  GDX is getting closer to challenging and powering above $25.  That would accelerate the sentiment shift in this deeply-undervalued sector back to bullish, enticing investors to return.  Good operating results from the major gold miners in their upcoming Q4’17 earnings season could prove the catalyst to fuel this GDX $25 breakout. The classic way to measure gold-sto

AS SISYPHUS FAILS GOLD WILL ASCEND
Welcome to 2018 – a year that will be the culmination of at least 105 years of mismanagement of the Western financial system by governments, central bankers and the elite. 2018 will be a year of major volatility in many markets. Stocks are now in a melt-up phase and before the major bear markets start in virtually all countries around the world, we are likely to see the final exhaustion moves which could be substantial. The year will also be marked by inflation increasing a lot faster than expec
