The Life Cycle of Money
In the aftermath of the global economic crisis of 2008-2009, governments throughout the world have fostered a tenuous recovery predicated on massive increases in money supplies and debasement of currencies. Note however, that monetary debasement is not a recent phenomenon; it is simply the natural life cycle of money.There are six well-defined stages in the life cycle of money. This progression has occurred in every dominant civilization

Gold, Silver, and the US Dollar: 1792-1971
In today's musing, I review the history of gold, silver, and fiat currency as money in the United States of America. I document how various wars, panics and depressions, Congressional acts, and executive orders have affected the US dollar prices of precious metals and resulting gold-silver ratios.This musing covers the period from 1792 when the United States government first established a national currency backed by gold and silver until

The Never-Ending Wars of the United States of America
A Monday Morning Musing from Mickey the Mercenary Geologist"War is a racket. It always has been. It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives. A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of the people. Only a small 'inside' group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefi

Amazing Energy Drills Amazing Well
Bob Moriarty of 321 Gold does the math for an energy company drilling in the Permian Basin and finds it pretty impressive. Amazing Energy Oil & Gas Co. (AMAZ:OTCQX) drilled an oil well they named WWJD #23 in Pecos County in the Permian Basin to a depth of 1,997 feet and encountered 44 feet of pay in the targeted Queen A formation. They own about 70% of the well and their cost was $300,000. The company just announced numbers on the well

What Trumps Dollars and Gold
I have commented and written extensively on the generally negative correlation of the US dollar and gold. In simple terms, when the US dollar moves up or down, the price of gold tends to do the opposite. This makes sense because the price of gold is quoted on world markets in good ol’ American greenbacks. That said, there are many other factors that contribute to the price of gold. These include: world economic health; geopolitical events; physical demand for jewelry, investment, hoarding, and i

  Toxic Food Is Killing Humanity And Now A Leading Cause Of Death
The saying “you are what you eat” may have much more meaning now than it ever has in the past. Toxic food is killing humanity, and one-fifth of all deaths are now linked to processed foods. It may not be cheap to eat good food, but it’s certainly better for your body. A new study compiling data from every country finds people are living longer but millions are eating wrong foods for their health. Poor diet is now a factor in one in five deaths around the world, according to the most comprehensiv

The Gold Coin Dilemma, Politics and Nonsense
There are five identical bags of gold, and each contains ten gold coins. However, one of the five bags contains fake gold. The real gold, fake gold, and five bags appear identical, except the coins of fake gold each weigh 1.1 ounces, and the real gold coins each weigh 1 ounce. You have an accurate digital scale and CAN USE IT ONLY ONCE. How do you determine which bag contains the fake gold? (Thanks to my friend Brian C. for sending me this dilemma.) There is a straight-forward answer to this

Buy the FAANGS Baby! Slow Torture
Here an amusing MarketWatch Opinion: Now that FAANG stocks are crashing, which are undervalued? That title, by Thomas H. Kee Jr., a former Morgan Stanley broker and founder of Stock Traders Daily, says quite a bit about market sentiment. Let’s Investigate. Central bank capital infusions dating back to 2013 are exactly what caused this asset bubble, and the liquidity injections have not stopped. This bubble will burst, but probably not today, and the recent selling in FAANG stocks does not appea

The Essential Link Between Consumers and Financial Markets
Recently one of the most successful Wall Street investors Warren Buffet urged investors to forget about active investment and simply put their money into index funds.Contrary to his previous ideas that one should strive to make investment decisions based on the understanding of fundamentals, now he is of the view that it is better to embrace a passive approach and follow the index.It seems that Buffet has succumbed to the popular view as presented by Modern Portfolio Theory (MPT) that financial

As Uranium Price Turns, Insiders Stock Up on Energy Fuels
