The fog around gold really isn't so obsolete at all
"One Nation Under Gold" author James Ledbetter writes in the Los Angeles Times today that the wealthier people are, the less likely they are to own gold, and that gold is best regarded as an investment by people who can't afford it. Ledbetter observes that Americans still own a lot of gold even as nobody is sure how much. Indeed, his essay is most interesting for acknowledging the fog that continues to surround gold. Ledbetter writes: "While we may think that we live in a more accountable era,

How to Profit from Irrational Low-Inflation Exuberance
Everyday Definition of Inflation:  “Stuff costs more.” U.S. Government Definition of Inflation:  “After extensive statistical analysis and data manipulation … yada yada yada.” Shadowstats publishes their version of consumer price inflation.  The Chapwood Index is another version.  Both indicate real inflation rates in the U.S. are MUCH HIGHER than the official government statistics.

Nauseating Stupidity on Confiscating Homes for the Greater Good from The Intercept
When it comes to anti-war pieces and matters of the US government overstepping its bounds in matters of privacy and security, The Intercept is usually spot on. On matters of social justice, The Intercept puts out some nauseating trash. Intercept writer Zaid Jilani provides a perfect example with JEREMY CORBYN WANTS TO REQUISITION HOMES OF THE RICH FOR FIRE SURVIVORS — LIKE CHURCHILL DID IN WWII.

Journalist Warns Of North Korean EMP Threat: Even “High-Profile National Security People Are Talking About It”
If you asked the average person about what threat North Korea poses to the United States, they’ll probably respond with a blank stare. The few who happen to pay attention to the news, will likely mention North Korea’s nuclear program, as well as their efforts to develop long range ballistic missiles that could one day reach the United States. That’s pretty much all most Americans know about North Korea’s capabilities, because that’s all they hear about from the media. The truth however is much m

The “Gold Sterilization” of 1937
Today, we will start investigating the U.S. recession of 1937, and along with that, claims that the Federal Reserve caused it by some sort of misbehavior. As is our usual practice, we will begin with just looking at some general information about that time. Industrial production had a short, sharp shock in 1937. Here’s what it looked like in terms of nominal GDP: I am not going to try to disentangle what was going on at that time. There were a lot of things, from the introduction of Social Sec

Economist Joseph Schumpeter introduced innovation economics in his 1942 book Capitalism, Socialism and Democracy. Schumpeter said that industries must incessantly revolutionize the economic structure from within by innovating with better or more effective processes and products. We can define, or limit the term "innovation" to a product, or process that’s original, that’s more effective, and as a new application better meets new requirements or existing market needs.

Brexit, Germany and Asia 
Britain’s general election went horribly wrong, with the Conservatives forced into a putative coalition with the Democratic Ulster Party. Theresa May’s failure to secure a clear majority has provoked indignation, bitterness, and widespread pessimism.The purpose of this article is not to contribute to this outcry, but to take a more measured view of the situation faced by the British government with regards to Brexit, and the consequences for Europe. In the interests of an international readershi

During a normal week, I will text myself a quick note or leave myself a voice note when and if an idea comes to mind so when I am travelling, it is usually preferable that I be close to a decent WiFi signal i

Vanadium Solves Renewable Energy?s Biggest Challenge
When looking for an investment your method should involve a thematic approach, studying global long term dominant trends. Then study the different sectors in order to select the one that is going to match up well with what you think is the soon to be overriding theme. This is top down investing. The second part of your search for the dominant investment is a bottom up approach. This is where you find individual companies in the specific sector you have chosen to invest in. So what is that inv

Japan Holds Evacuation Drills, Showing Concern Over North Korea’s Missile Tests
The Japanese are no longer taking any chances against the rogue North Korean regime and Kim Jong-Un’s insistence on the continued testing of ballistic missiles. Japan is now participating in more frequent evacuation drills in the event that they are attacked by North Korea. Although drills of this type aren’t the first in Japan this year, they are increasing in frequency. Sunday’s evacuation drill in the town of Abu, Yamaguchi prefecture, is showing how concerned the Japanese are about a potenti

An EMP Attack Is Scary, But It Could Be Nothing More Than Alarmist Propaganda
In a recent hearing of the Senate’s Energy and Natural Resources Committee, Chairwoman Lisa Murkowski put the recent EMP attack hysteria into perspective when she said, “The United States has recognized a potential EMP attack as a national security threat for decades, and our efforts to understand a potential EMP burst are not new.” An EMP attack would devastate the United States for years but the study of that threat is still being conducted. In fact, the Department of Defense and national labs
