Gotterdammerung
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.

Remobilize Gold To Save The World Economy!
Let me explain. Gold is the only ultimate extinguisher of debt. Other extinguishers do, of course, exist but they are not ultimate in that they have a counterpart in the liability column of the balance sheet of someone else. Gold has no such liability attached to it. Gold is where the buck stops. It is this property

Moving to the Post LBMA-Era Gold Price Reset - Watch Out
If one were to describe, in a word, the singular quality of gold that gives it value both as money and a wealth preservation asset, that quality is integrity. Physical gold cannot be printed, it cannot be conjured by a central bank or government official, it cannot be credited into existence by a bank. And over a period of four thousand years, the markets have selected gold and silver as money. The replacement of gold and silver sound money with unstable debt-based fiat paper currenc

Gold and Central Banks – A Love-Hate Relationship
If gold is a relic of the past then why are central banks holding so much gold? Central banks hold, if we believe official statistics, around 20% of the global gold stock. Before the gold suppressing efforts began, they were holding 70%. Since the financial crisis of 2008, they have started to buy gold again. However, if we look at a chart of gold acquisitions by developing countries, they have started buying gold just after the Asian currency crisis in 1987. It seems that all the gold sold by d

Searching for Nazi Gold: No Interest or Research for Nearly Forty Years!: Gov Report 
We do not have the resources, skills, or time to dig into the missing gold from WWII. But, we are seeing a cultivated distraction to divert public interest from the factual disposition of the captured German gold to the non-monetary Holocaust gold in Swiss banks. To our knowledge the signatory documentation has never been seen by the public - - only government claims that "most of the gold has been restituted".

Why Can't We All Just Net Along
Zero Hedge posted an article that asks an interesting question.Every European country owes money to other European countries.This creates a web of cross-linked debt.Instead of each country laboring under the full nominal amount, why don’t they just cooperate and cancel out everything but the net debt? This remainder would be very manageable for every country.

The Standard Poor Downgrade of Uncle Sam
By now, everyone knows that S&P downgraded the debt of the USA from their top rating, AAA, to their second-highest grade, AA+.Most of the commentary has been of the pin-the-blame-on-the-donkey variety.For all most people know, this is the collapse of the currency and the financial system and their biggest concern is that Obama not win the 2012 election.

Antal Fekete Explains Why We Need to Go Back Onto a Gold Standard
Another essay, by my friend, Antal Fekete. Please take time to read the footnote at the bottom of the essay.

Sources and Remedies of Financial Instability 
The financial instability that first surfaced with full force in 2008 is the result of a deteriorating condition in world finance going back 40 years. Worse still, that deterioration is continuing and threatens with an historically unprecedented world-wide credit collapse. The watershed year was 1971.
