  Understanding money and prices
This article explains the money side of prices, and why government currencies, unbacked by gold, are doomed to collapse. And why gold, which is the sound money chosen by markets throughout history, will retain or increase its purchasing power measured in the goods it buys over the coming years.Very few people have a full understanding of the relationship between money and goods. This is the relationship that sets prices. Yet, without that understanding, central banks will almost certainly fail i

  Gold Silver Confiscation: Can the Government Seize Assets
One concern of retail precious metals investors is the possibility of a gold confiscation.Imagine having the forethought to buy gold to shield your finances from an economic or monetary crisis—only to have it taken away from you by your government. You’d lose not just the protective buffer you put in place but potentially a chunk of your net worth.Gold confiscation may sound preposterous to investors used to securities or real estate. But it’s happened in the past enough times to make it a reaso

The “Gold Sterilization” of 1937
Today, we will start investigating the U.S. recession of 1937, and along with that, claims that the Federal Reserve caused it by some sort of misbehavior. As is our usual practice, we will begin with just looking at some general information about that time. Industrial production had a short, sharp shock in 1937. Here’s what it looked like in terms of nominal GDP: I am not going to try to disentangle what was going on at that time. There were a lot of things, from the introduction of Social Sec

Why Own Gold The Top 10 Reasons to Buy Gold Now
Is gold a good investment? Why should you own it?It’s natural and even prudent for an investor to wonder if a particular asset is a good investment or not. That’s especially true for gold, since it’s an inert metal and doesn’t earn any interest.But the reasons for owning physical gold go beyond the possibility of its price rising. Gold bullion offers distinct advantages that simply can’t be found in almost any other investment. These advantages give you power as an investor. And yes, one of thes

WILL POVERTY, DISEASE AND WAR LEAD TO 3 BILLION FEWER PEOPLE 
There are 51 million American households that cannot make ends meet. This means that 43% of American households can’t afford a basic middle class life. Of these, 35 million are dubbed ALICE which stands for Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed with a further 16 million households living in poverty. It is absolutely remarkable that in the world’s biggest and “richest”country, just under 50% of the households are struggling to afford a basic middle class life and that 50 million people live

What is Freegold
Four years ago, Freegoldtube made a video titled "What is Freegold?" It evolved out of a series of events that began with the stunning collapse in the price of gold, from $1,600 down to $1,380 in first half of April, 2013. That collapse caused Jim Sinclair to email me asking about Freegold, which caused him to then make some confusing posts on his own blog about Freegold, which caused Ein Anderer to suggest that we were in "urgent need" of a short and simple explanation of Freegold. He persist

People Are Holding Tight to Their Gold and Silver “Scrap”
It’s really no surprise that gold and silver scrap are not coming back into the market with the two metals continually beat into submission. Gold and silver have been on the low side of the high-end for the past several years. Unless people are seriously desperate for cash they will usually hold pretty tight to their gold at the levels they have been for the past several years. Once we get into the 2020 decade and we begin seeing higher gold and silver the so-called “scrap” market will be alive

  Cecil Rhodes and the Dream of a New World Order Presided Over by an Anglo-American Establishment 
"The Rhodes Scholarships, established by the terms of Cecil Rhodes's seventh will, are known to everyone. What is not so widely known is that Rhodes in five previous wills left his fortune to form a secret society, which was to devote itself to the preservation and expansion of the British Empire. And what does not seem to be known to anyone is that this secret society was created by Rhodes and his principal trustee, Lord Milner, and continues to exist to this day. To be sure, this secret soci

Open Borders
Many left libertarians demand open borders. Nations have no significance, they tell us. To think otherwise, to recognize any limits to immigration, arbitrarily restricts people’s liberty. Those of us who think otherwise, they say, are no better than fascists. Joe Salerno’s brilliant and comprehensive article, “Mises on Nationalism, the Right to Self-Determination, and the Problem of Immigration” shows that Mises rejected the extreme anti-nationalist, open borders position. As Salerno shows, Mise

Economic Nationalism
I thought that I would chew over the idea of “economic nationalism” for a bit, to see if we could find something useful in it. The neo-liberal free trade/no borders consensus is a little too easily promoted by many today, apparently without much thought. I am generally in the neo-liberal camp, but I wanted to think about it. For some reason, “nationalism” is a naughty word these days, but all that it means is that one feels an allegiance to one’s “nation.” The main reason for the badmouthing of

Standing Ready to Lease Gold
We will take another break from capital destruction, to treat a topic which has come up this week. On March 11, we said: “…central bankers do not think about gold. Granted, they once did. In the 1960’s, there was the now-infamous London Gold Pool to keep the price of gold at $35. This is endlessly cited as evidence of current central bank price suppression, without bothering to mention that until 1971 the official US policy was to maintain the dollar to gold exchange rate of $35 to the ounce. …

Hypocritical Corporate Democrats and Selling You Out While Feeling Your Pain
"You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time." Abraham Lincoln As always, the GOP does the same thing in the service of Big Money, and much worse and most of the time unabashedly. But the Democrats keep trying to ride this 'lesser of two evils' gimmick and keep side-skirting badly needed genuine reform.  They want their cake and eat it too.  The cake is public office, frosted with huge Big Money political

U.S. bank derivatives books larger since rescue of Bear Stearns
At the end of January 2008, in what would turn out to be its final annual report, Bear Stearns went into some detail about its big book of derivatives. The book had a notional value of $13.4 trillion at the end of November, Bear said, up more than 50 percent from a year earlier. A two-notch downgrade in the firm's credit ratings, it added, would require it to come up with an extra $353m in collateral. This huge cluster of financial instruments -- swaps, futures, forwards, and options -- may not
