Cryptocurrencies: Modern Day Alchemy
Cryptocurrencies make good currencies, but fail miserably when trying to achieve the status of money. Cryptocurrencies are both created and held electronically inside a virtual wallet. These digital currencies use encryption techniques to regulate the generation of new units and to verify the transfer of funds. Cryptocurrencies operate independently of governments and are decentralized. The most popular cryptocurrency now is Bitcoin. Bitcoin has risen in popularity because, unlike government-bac

  Diminishing Returns 
These two words are the hinge that is swinging American life — and the advanced techno-industrial world, for that matter — toward darkness. They represent an infection in the critical operations of daily life, like a metabolic disease, driving us into disorder and failure. And they are so omnipresent that we’ve failed to even notice the growing failure all around us. Mostly, these diminishing returns are the results of our over-investments in making complex systems more complex, for instance the

A Robot Army Just Made The Biggest Gold Discovery Of The Century
This report from OilPrice.com is a paid advertorial Prospectors have mined 20 million ounces of gold from the Yukon’s famous Klondike since the Gold Rush. But they haven’t been able to find the original source—the multi-billion-dollar bedrock. Until now. A famous geologist armed with the latest in drone tech and robo-drills is certain he’s just found it. This is the Mother Lode of Klondike gold that countless prospectors have been trying to get at for over a century. It makes the 20 million oun

The weakest boom ever
[This post is a slightly-modified excerpt from a recent TSI commentary] The US economic boom that followed the bust of 2007-2009 is still in progress. It has been longer than average, but at the same time it has been unusually weak. The weakness is even obvious in the government’s own heavily-manipulated and positively-skewed data. For example, the following chart shows that during the current boom* the year-over-year growth rate of real GDP peaked at only 3.3% and has averaged only about 2.0%.

'There Is No Cure for this Disease...' 
In 1934, through the Gold Reserve Act, President Roosevelt devalued the dollar from $20.67 dollars per ounce, to $35 dollars per ounce. The devaluation was excessive, meaning that at $35 dollars per ounce, the world considered that it would rather own American dollars - as undervalued - rather than gold; for this reason, and because of fears regarding another World War, the world shipped enormous quantities of gold to the US, in exchange for US dollars. The consequence was that the stash of Am

  Debt, Dollars, DOW, War, Silver, and Shirts
Yes, they are connected. Dollars are created as debt. More dollars in circulation = more debt. More debt means consumption is “pulled forward” from the future so consumption can occur now. This usually ends badly. Commercial banks and central banks have created trillions of new dollars. Each new dollar devalues every other dollar currently in circulation, in savings, and in pension accounts. Prices rise! Wars are costly, kill people and produce little. Governments like wars because t

A Midsummer Night's Dream: Buy Precious Metals
Each year since 1987, I have always used the final two weeks of the month of August as a shopping period in a manner not unlike the “Back-to-School” kind only the wares I seek are junior precious metals stocks as opposed to school uniforms, pens, and books. It began after I had been speaking with one of the finest brokers I had ever had the opportunity to know, Edmonton’s late George Milton, whose claim to fame was being the early financier for Bre-X (Not to worry, he and the bulk of his clients

  China, Gold and the US Dollar... 
The Neocon – Zionist drive for world domination is set to be brought to a screeching halt by something as simple as GOLD. This article is not politically motivated – the writer has no political agenda or affiliation – and the motivation for producing it is to enable you to understand the pivotal role that gold will play in thwarting the Empire’s imperialist ambitions, and how this means that the price of gold – and silver – will skyrocket, and sooner than many think possible. When you know that

Bitcoin Has No Yield, but Gold Does
Last week I said: It is commonly accepted to say the dollar is “printed”, but we can see from this line of thinking it is really borrowed. There is a real borrower on the other side of the transaction, and that borrower has powerful motivations to keep paying to service the debt. Bitcoin has no backing. Bitcoin is created out of thin air, the way people say of the dollar. The quantity of bitcoins created may be strictly limited by Satoshi’s design. We referred to the dollar as being borrowed

Gold’s Breaks Below $1,270 – Third Time Lucky?
The last couple of years and – in particular – the last couple of months were very difficult for gold traders – i.e. they were boring. Despite several huge daily price swings, the precious metals market has not been going anywhere, moving in and around the $1,100 - $1,300 price range. Gold got to the point where this lack of volatility is by itself an extreme sign pointing to a much bigger price swing in the market, as the periods of very high and very low volatility tend to follow each other.

  Can a government surplus cause the economy to tank? 
According to the article linked HERE, if the US or the Australian or the UK government repaid all of its debt, the economy would tank. The article contains such a large number of factual errors and such a copious amount of nonsense that completely debunking it would take far more time than I’m prepared to spend, so in this post I’ll only deal with a few of the flaws. To begin, the article points out that US government surpluses have, in the past, often been followed by depressions or recessions,

Fanciful Fed Follies
Having just returned from boating in northern Georgian Bay and an area called The North Channel, I have been by and large out of contact with gold and silver prices since July 22 and am delighted to see that prices have stabilized after dipping in late Spring to under $1,210. Over the past month, the global stock markets have all danced around all-time highs with Dr. Copper forging a break-out above the $2.90 level, marking the highest close in two years. Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos briefly became the

The Daily Market Report: Gold Retreats on Heightened Risk Appetite, but Finds Support
USAGOLD/Peter Grant/08-15-17 Gold came under additional corrective pressure in early U.S. trading, weighed by a further easing of geopolitical tensions, along with some better than expected U.S. economic data. While the yellow metal set new lows for the week, buying interest resurfaced well ahead of last week’s low. While North Korea may have walked back an imminent threat to Guam, I don’t believe anyone really thinks that the Korean crisis has been resolved. “Though North Korea is signaling its

N.Korea? Gold Prices More About Real Rates Than Ever
So the daily correlation data say at least... SO APPARENTLY, the latest pop and retreat in gold prices has all been about the nuclear stand-off between the US and North Korea, writes Adrian Ash at BullionVault. "Gold falls on rising risk appetite as N.Korea tensions ease," says Reuters. And fair enough. Trum

Why The Bitcoin Price Could Top $1 Million
The price of Bitcoin made a new record high above $4,300 today and is now up roughly 350% year to date or 643% over the past 12 months. If you add in the free Bitcoin Cash distributed to Bitcoin holders, the current value of Bitcoin is closer to $4,600. In this article, I will lay out the case for why a Bitcoin price of $1 million is not as outlandish as it appears at first blush. While some people are saying it could hit this level by 2030, I think we could see the Bitcoin price reach $1 milli

Digital Enslavement Is Now Assured: ACChain - Rory Hall
This is justification for what I have been saying for a year or more – blockchain chain technology and cryptocurrencies are evil and will usher in a cashless society. If some of what I am about say sounds harsh it is because we are discussing our lives – not just our financial lives, but our ability to have the life we dream about, hope for and work to obtain. As we have pointed out, especially over the past few months, the too big to jail banks, IMF, United Nations and BIS have all been e

Money Laundering Scandal at Australia’s Largest Bank Triggers Another Call for Ban of Cash
Ian Narev, the CEO of Commonwealth Bank of Australia (CBA), the nation’s largest bank is set to step down amid money laundering charges. Money laundering is big business in Australia because regulations do not cover lawyers, real estate agents, accountants, and CEOs ignoring warnings from police. Despite the obvious problem, it’s cash itself that gets the blame. There are several stories here buts let’s start with Australia’s Biggest Bank Says CEO Will Retire Amid Money-Laundering Scandal.

“What, Me Worry?” Markets - Gary Christenson
Mad Magazine introduced Alfred E. Neuman (What, Me Worry?) in the 1950s. He did NOT become a central banker. That is “fake news.” Global central banks, including the Federal Reserve, created “What, Me Worry?” markets after the 2008 crash. There has been little worry since the November election, until now. But the market worry level may have increased. Changes between highs and lows in two days – until time of this writing: Date Aug. 8 Aug. 10 DOW
