  On the use of gold coins as money 
Why don’t humans use gold coins as Money ? The answer is quite simple : because they don’t want to, under present circumstances. The attachment of humans to gold is remarkable; I suspect there is something metaphysical about gold that attracts human beings. Perhaps gold is part of the natural order of things, part of the Rerum Natura, and the relationship of humans to gold is “built-in”into human nature, like sexual attraction.

Mexico's Past, the World's Future Currency Devaluations
It seems the world is doomed to repeat the same mistakes, from wars to large economic shocks that could have been avoided. All this, without a doubt, is the responsibility of leaders, who are often blinded by today's apparent prosperity, or by the desire to postpone the inevitable, leading entire nations to what will eventually end in tragedy. The influential forces that these leaders possess,

The Speculative Merits of Common Stock Warrants
There are days, and this is one of them, when I feel like I'm preaching to the choir about the profit potential of investing in common stock warrants. It's a small choir of successful investors, but there are few people in the pews paying attention to my sermon. The granddaddy of investing in stock warrants was Sidney Fried, who died in 1992 at age 72. He was active from the 1950s to the 1970s, publishing a warrant survey newsletter, "The RHM Warrant Survey", and writing many books abo

  When Central Banks Re-build Silver Reserves 
It's useful to know the silver reserves of central banks at one time in history. This is a FRB Bulletin from 1923. At one time, say up until the early 1960s the US Treasury held as much as 4 BILLION ounces, as I recall. Now, the Treasury is without any = ZERO! It cost us every last ounce to try and stem the run on the dollar.

God, Gold and Guns
We’ve been looking into One Nation Under Gold (2017), by James Ledbetter. October 2, 2017: One Nation Under Gold (2017), by James Ledbetter October 14, 2017: One Nation Under Gold #2: The Silliness of the Bretton Woods Years Now, we will follow Ledbetter’s account of the end of Bretton Woods in 1971, up to the present. The account of the 1971 devaluation was, following the pattern of this book, long on details but short on insight. It seemed to people at the time that they “had no choice,” that

Gold coins: The Mexican Libertad
Mexico´s Libertad (Freedom) has been minted by the Mexican Mint “Casa de Moneda de Mexico” since 1981. After the South African Krugerrand and the Canadian Maple Leaf, the Mexican Libertad was the third modern bullion coin on sale at world markets. The gold coin, which is also known as “Onza”, is now one of the world’s top-selling coins. From 1981 to 1991 the Libertad had a purity of 90% (.900).

Who Are The Greatest Coin Collectors
Numismatics is the name given to the study and collecting of coins and medals, and is derived fromnomisma,the Greek word for coin. It is probable that coins were prized for their aesthetic qualities in the ancient world, while their importance in socio-economic development was appreciated by Herodotus, the 5th century Greek historian.

Raw Materials
It is said that the most advantageous of all branches of trade is that which supplies manufactured commodities in exchange for raw materials. For these raw materials are the aliment and support of national labor. Hence the conclusion is drawn that the best law of customs is that which gives the greatest possible facility to the importation of raw materials, and which throws most obstacles in the way of importing finished goods. There is no fallacy in political economy more widely disseminated th

  Gold and Silver as Standards of Value 
All the usurpation, and tyranny, and extortion, and robbery, and fraud, that are involved in the monopoly of money are practised, and attempted to be justified, under the pretence of maintaining the standard of value. This pretence is intrinsically a false one throughout. And the whole motive for it is to afford some color of justification for such a monopoly of money as will enable the few holders of gold and silver coins (or of such other money as may be specially licensed and substituted for them) to extort, in exchange for them, more of other men’s property than the coins (or their substitutes) are naturally and truly worth. That such is the fact, it is the purpose of this article to prove.

  What 10-Baggers (and 100-Baggers) Look Like 
Now that it appears clear the bottom is in for gold, it’s time to stop fretting about how low prices will drop and how long the correction will last—and start looking at how high they’ll go and when they’ll get there. When viewing the gold market from a historical perspective, one thing that’s clear is that the junior mining stocks tend to fluctuate between extreme boom and bust cycles. As a group, they’ll double in price, then crash by 75%... then double or triple or even quadruple again, onl

Stock to Flow Ratio - A Primer
The importance of gold's stock to flow ratio is greatly underestimated. I first came across the concept in 2009 at a lecture by Professor Antal E. Fekete in Szombathely, Hungary. It fascinated me and the more I looked at its implications, the more amazed that I became, not least of which because my search engine couldn't locate a single piece of writing on the subject anywhere. The stock to f

  Death Penalty for Debasing Currency: US Coinage Act of 1792 
As most of you know much of our current law was based on English case law. Hence, this was the Royal Mint's disposition of counterfeiters and forgers. Themethods employed for carrying out the death penalty are appropriate eventoday.: SOLOMON IDSWELL, Deception > forgery, 20th May 1795. Reference Number:t17950520-26 Offence: Deception >forgery Verdict: Guilty Punishment: Death Are Counterfeiting and Treason any less painful a crime upon the people today? We vote "Nay!" Hasn't our central government stolen real money by bank note deception and broken sworn promises ofredeemability from the American people and their foreign trading partners? And haven't our current leaders and appointees past and present lied knowingly to perpetuate thesecrimes ?Tothis,we vote "Yea!" onboth charges.

The Value of Labor
The Labor of the Plowman Is of Less Value than that of the Artisan Abstract: The opportunity cost of becoming a skilled worker includes both the direct expenses as well as the foregone labor during the training period or apprenticeship. As a result, skilled workers must be paid higher wages than unskilled workers. A laborer’s son, at 7 to 12 years of age, begins to help his father either in keeping the herds, digging the ground, or in other sorts of country labor that require no art or skill. If

  Gold Is 'Money' Because It Is Plentiful, Not Because It Is Scarce 
Gold, and its brother silver, have always been the basis of money, back to the beginnings of “money,” in the late fourth millennium B.C. Already by 2000 B.C., gold and silver had been “money” for over a thousand years–the entire history of “civilization” on this planet. Gold was still the basis of money in the 1960s, in an unbroken line stretching back to the beginnings of history. One somewhat counterintuitive requirement for “money” is that it does not have a utilitarian purpose; at least, no

Wagner's opera Gotterdämmerung is about the twighlight of pagan gods. The most powerful of the latter-day pagan gods that has been guiding the destinies of humanity for the past two-score of years is Irredeemable Debt. Before August 14, 1971, debts were obligations, and the word "bond" was to mean literally what it said: the opposite of freedom. The privilege of issuing debt had a countervailing responsibility: that of repayment.

The fiat money quantity (FMQ) 
Summary : This paper seeks to establish a measure of currency quantity that helps economists identify and estimate the risk that confidence in fiat currencies might be significantly eroded or even vanish altogether. It is this phenomenon that was referred to in the great European currency inflations of the 1920s as Katastrophenhausse, or a crack-up boom, when ordinary people lose all confidence in a fiat currency, disposing of it as rapidly as possible instead preferring ownership of goods.This is
