  What Should Freedom Lovers Do? 
How can one combine professional life with the advancement of liberty? Of course it is presumptuous to offer a definitive answer since all jobs and careers in the market economy are subject to the forces of the division of labor.Because a person focuses on one task doesn't mean that he or she isn't great at many tasks; it means only that the highest productive gains for everyone come from dividing tasks up among many people of a wide range of talents.

  Devaluation of the Words on the Dollar Bill 
The 1929 series of Federal Reserve notes said: "Redeemable in gold on demand at the United States Treasury, or in gold or lawful money at any Federal Reserve Bank." This was just like the Silver Certificate, which was guaranteed by a dollar in silver that was on deposit.

  The Fed is Absolutely Terrified of Something… What Is It?
What is the Fed so terrified of? For five years we’ve been told that the world was in recovery. “Analysts” and pundits have trotted out every explanation imaginable for why things are in fact great and the markets should go straight up. On top of this endless and mind-numbing chatter, the Fed has spent over $4 trillion… an amount larger than most sovereign economies. To put this into perspective, the Fed could have spent less money buying EVERY SINGLE ITEM OF ECONOMIC OUTPUT FROM GERMANY FOR A

  SP 500 and NDX Futures Daily Charts - FOMC Tomorrow and the End of QE III
The Street hit the stock market with tranquilizers and vitamins ahead of the end of QE III which will most likely come tomorrow with the Fed's afternoon FOMC announcement. I expect the market to be supported, and perhaps find support as well. This is a technically traded, highly dangerous market beneath the surface calm. Have a pleasant evening.

  Gold Daily and Silver Weekly Charts - Quiet Option Expiration, Markets In Lockdown
One of the savvier traders and commentators I know told me this morning that 'the markets are in lockdown,' and I think he had it exactly right. The Fed is very sensitive to provoking a market sell off in anything except precious metals perhaps when they formally announce the end to QE III tomorrow. I would expect an extra effort to placate stocks and bonds. Moderate growth, low inflation, all is well, but we'll act quickly in case anything upsets our clientele on Wall Street. As for Main S

  Chris Hedges: The Myth of a Free Press 
The bias in the US media towards corporate and special interests is apparent in some sources more easily and readily than in others, especially if one has access and bothers to look at a broad base of international news sources.  The great change was institutionalized with the overturn of the Fairness Doctrine under Reagan in 1985 and the revoking of media ownership restrictions from 1934 and 1975 under the Clinton administration's Telecommunications Act of 1996. What has changed perhaps is

  It Couldn’t Happen Here 
Across America it seems like an ordinary Friday. The Dow trades nervously in a 200 point range, weaker at the day's end on reports the Japanese Finance Ministry is complaining about the high dollar & being forced to digest too many US government securities. Still, the Dow closes up 8.90 points at 6,825.35. Gold jumps strongly to finish the day in New York at $380, silver at $5.25. Experts on Wall Street Week that evening are reassuring, certain that the Japanese complaints are only one more in a series of inconsequential negotiations in US-Japanese financial relations. On the way home, millions of Americans stop by the gas station & tank up at $1.38 a gallon. At the grocery store, they buy bread for $1.25, & pick up a pound of hamburger for $1.99.

  Greenspan says he's not aware of gold price suppression through central bank leasing
The opportunity to question former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan about central bank intervention in the gold market was spectacularly fumbled today during Greenspan's appearance at the New Orleans Investment Conference. Interviewing Greenspan, conference moderator Gary Alexander asked if the former Fed chairman was aware of efforts by central banks to suppress the price of gold by leasing the metal to bullion banks, which would sell the metal into the market. "I'm not aware of anything

  Bullion or Mining Stocks – Do You Have the Right Mix?
Many investors believe their portfolios have exposure to precious metals because they hold stocks in mining companies. But as a safe haven, no gold or silver or platinum stock (or even an ETF) compares with physical bullion. Let’s examine why physical bullion is the superior investment.

  Liberty, Not Government, is Key to Containing Ebola 
According to Forbes magazine, at least 5,000 Americans contacted healthcare providers fearful they had contracted Ebola after the media reported that someone with Ebola had entered the United States. All 5,000 cases turned out to be false alarms. In fact, despite all the hype about Ebola generated by the media and government officials, as of this writing there has only been one preliminarily identified case of someone contracting Ebola within the United States. Ebola is a dangerous dis

Things are about to get more interesting in the EU as a review of budget procedures shows the UK, Greece, and Italy owe more money, but Germany and France will get money back. Curiously, this came about following a review of non-profit organizations from churches and universities to trade unions, charities and sports clubs. The time period is 2002-2009.

  Gold and Silver as Standards of Value 
All the usurpation, and tyranny, and extortion, and robbery, and fraud, that are involved in the monopoly of money are practised, and attempted to be justified, under the pretence of maintaining the standard of value. This pretence is intrinsically a false one throughout. And the whole motive for it is to afford some color of justification for such a monopoly of money as will enable the few holders of gold and silver coins (or of such other money as may be specially licensed and substituted for them) to extort, in exchange for them, more of other men’s property than the coins (or their substitutes) are naturally and truly worth. That such is the fact, it is the purpose of this article to prove.

  Henry Giroux On the Rise of Neoliberalism As a Political Ideology 
I think this highlights the false dichotomy between communism and market capitalism that was created in the 1980's.   The dichotomy was more properly between communist government and democracy, of the primacy of the individual over the primacy of the organization and the state, as embodied in fascism and the real world implementations of communism.  But we never think of it that way any more, if at all.  It is one of the greatest public relation coups in history.  One form of organizational op

Oil Trading Alert: Crude Oil – Has Anything Changed?
Oil Trading Alert originally sent to subscribers on October 29, 2014, 11:13 AM. Trading position (short-term; our opinion): No positions. On Tuesday, crude oil gained 1.13% as weaker U.S. dollar supported the price. In this way, the commodity bounced off a multi-month low and closed the day above $81. Did this upswing changed the very short-term outlook? Yesterday, the Commerce Department showed that durable goods orders fell 1.3% in the previous month, disappointing expectations for a 0.5% i
