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

The Gold Standard
According to Mises, money’s function as a medium of exchange is thus the central one, while its store of value and unit of account functions are merely subordinate functions. I would say store of value and unit of account is what makes the medium of exchange marketable. The medium of exchange has to be simple to understand, not only by educated people but also the most uneducated. It has to be easily accessed, not only in ideal circumstances but also in difficult ones. Many things have been trie

How California stayed with gold when the rest of the U.S. adopted fiat money
We are ten years into the age of bitcoin. But people are still using national currencies like yen, dollars, and pounds to buy things. What does history have to say about switches from one type of monetary system to another? In this post I’ll dig for lessons from California’s successful resistance to a fiat standard that was imposed on it in the 1860s by the rest of the U.

The British military has staged war games featuring a large-scale blackout attack on Moscow as they fear a capability shortage amid allegations of Russian cyberattacks on both sides of the Atlantic in addition to the Skripal affair, the Sunday Times reports.Sources from the army told the Times that the speed with which a confrontation between the two countries could escalate had left some officials “ashen-faced”.“If they sank our aircraft carrier with a nuclear-tipped torpedo, what is our respon

When HODL becomes GTFO, what is your exit plan, and how long will it take to execute
"You know, fighting in a basement offers a lot of difficulties. Number one being, you're fighting in a basement." - Lt. Aldo Raine  Like most libertarians, private property ownership and personnel security are two passions of mine where we all clearly benefit from always having an exit plan.   This article probably does not cover anything professional traders and old mobsters don't fully grok, but dilettantes and newbies will certainly benefit from either developing or reviewing their exit poi

Eat Gold
Submitted by BullionStar.com A popular phrase in segments of the mainstream financial media is that “You Can’t Eat Gold”. We don’t know who first uttered this comment, but it was more than likely a talking-head or Wall Street analyst on CNBC or Bloomberg. The disparaging claim seems to be based on concluding that in a financial or monetary crisis, if you own gold, that “You Can’t Eat It”. And so, according to the logic of whoever came up with the phrase, this would make gold useless during a fin

Democratization of Money vs. Economic Feudalism
The Fed is the Market, Until Someone Bigger Comes Along..  UPDATE:This editorial was written  3 days ago in reaction to reading the Zerohedge post As Bitcoin Nears $10,000 "Central Banks Kept Up At Night" by Vince Lanci “Free markets for free men”- patch worn on the Nymex floor during Iraqi war.  The reality: We were cheerleaders for Halliburton and naively thought we were on the same team. Money that can’t cross borders freely for its citizenry is not a free market. There was a time before e

The Candle Problem (Why Bitcoin Is Misunderstood)
By Chris at www.CapitalistExploits.at Karl Duncker, that's who came up with it. The Candle Problem, that is. If you haven't heard of the candle problem, here's the skinny. In 1945, just as Hitler was murdering himself (thankfully), psychologist Karl Duncker was turning his attention to how humans solve problems. He came up with "the candle problem," a cognitive performance test measuring the influence of functional fixedness on a participant's problem solving capabilities. Here's the probl

A Gift From The Oldies
By Chris at www.CapitalistExploits.at I bumped into a friendly bloke at my local gym last week. Jim is his name. Jim tells me he just started because, and I quote, "my doctor says I'm going to die unless I do something". Now, I assure you it doesn't take a doctor to figure this out. One glance in Jim's direction and you can tell that underneath all that weight there's a big struggling heart in there... just ready to explode. He was surprisingly frank and tells me it's so bad that he can o

Cryptocurrency Bank AriseBank To Acquire 100 Year Old FDIC Bank; Partner With BitShares.
Intro by Vince Lanci via the Soren K. Group at Marketslant.com The Next Revolution is already Happening Over the past few weeks, I've had the pleasure of meeting the next revolutionaries in the democratization of money.

What Bitcoin "Deserves"
From the Slope of Hope: I will preface this by saying I don't have a dog in this fight. Whether Bitcoin plummets to its intrinsic value of $0.00 and makes people look like idiots, or whether it goes to a trillion dollars per Bitcoin, it doesn't matter to me. But I want to point out something I find just.......weird. The press (and, in particular, Bitcoin fanboyz) seem obsessed with the notion that the market cap, so to speak, of Bitcoin is DESTINED to ascend to some higher level. We see diagrams

Has Bitcoin Bought It
Punch-drunk from a series of crunching blows, dazed and confused, staggering for the ropes. It’s hard not to get the image of Bitcoin being pummeled by the market, getting the wind knock out of it. But is this picture true? Instead of focusing on what swirls around in the media, a cautious investor would instead reach out for what might drive their profits. Google has moved to ban Bitcoin-related adds. This shouldn’t be particularly surprising, given the fact that there’s been precedent in the f

Global Elitists: Bitcoin’s ‘Intrinsic Value Must Be Zero’, Bubble About To Burst
Allianz Global Investors, the investment arm of Europe’s biggest insurer, employees economists who say Bitcoin is absolutely worthless, and a bubble that’s about to burst. Allianz Global, which manages almost 500 billion euro, says Bitcoin “ticks off all the boxes” for a major asset bubble. “In our view, its intrinsic value must be zero,” Stefan Hofrichter, the company’s head of global economics and strategy, wrote in a recent web post. “A bitcoin is a claim on nobody – in contrast to, for insta

Riding the Current Wave in Bitcoin
In a move surprising to some, the SEC has announced that a number of cryptocurrency exchanges must register with the agency. Without naming names, the race has begun to determine if a specific platform meets the definitions put forward by the SEC. As our readers are aware, this is actually not surprising at all. In fact, it is only one small step in a broader trend recognizable in the Bitcoin market. How this specific event translates into the current trading conditions is what’s most interestin

The Chicago Way Precious Metals Protection Plan
Do you have a plan to protect your precious metals? You should. I’m going to tell you mine today. I’m from Chicago. The second city. The windy city. The city of big shoulders. All of that sounds nice, but if you’ve live in Chicago, the phrase that is always top of mind is not so romantic. You may have heard it before. It’s the phrase that was famously mouthed by Sean Connery in the movie “The Untouchables” when he said “THATS the Chicago Way.” The Chicago Way. If you live in Chicago and don’t kn
