  What the Heck is Going on With US Treasuries In Belgium? 
The tiny country of Belgium – my beloved hunting grounds for three years a while back – with a GDP of $484 billion, a country which you can cross by bicycle in a single day if you're really fit, a country that became famous to the chagrin of some people because it did just fine for a couple of years without a national government – well, that tiny speck of land is starting to grow an enormous mountain of US Treasury Securities. In February, according to data just released by the US Treasury Depar

  Hyperinflation around the Globe 
Angola (1991-1999) Angola went through the worst inflation from 1991 to 1995. In early 1991, the highest denomination was 50,000 kwanzas. By 1994, it was 500,000 kwanzas.

  Ukraine Accord Broken Already; Key Uninvited Group to Peace Party Doesn't Like the Deal; Reflections
Immediately after the 4-player Ukraine accord announcement yesterday (See Ukraine Talks End in Accord; What About the Key Missing Player?) I commented ... Lots of Questions This accord raises more questions than answers. Did anyone consult the separatists? Who is going to enforce the agreement? Is there a single voice, or even a small group of voices who can speak for the separatists? If the separatists are acting on their own, then unless Russia or someone else can convince the separatis

  His Final Journey: Remembering the 149th Anniversary of the Assassination of Abraham Lincoln 
"Unconscious, Lincoln was carried from Ford's Theatre to the nearby house of Williams Peterson at 453 10th Street. There, in a room rented to William Clark, a boarder, Abraham Lincoln died at 7:22 a.m., April 15, 1865. When Lincoln died Secretary of War Edwin M. Stanton is reported to have uttered, 'Now he belongs to the ages.'" "It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us — that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which t

  The Virtue of Hoarding 
Most people would admit to hoarding money only with a tinge of guilt, because to be a hoarder carries with it the suggestion of being a miser — a Scrooge. And yet, every participant in an economy based on indirect exchange holds some amount of money and can be said to be hoarding it, that is, declining to spend it. Hoarding is a strategy for achieving personal goals or for dealing with economic uncertainty.

  Pro-Russia Separatists Defy Ukraine Deadline; Russia Promises to Protect Protesters From Violence; U
There is no sign of tension easing in the Ukraine today. Russia promises to protect the protesters from violence as the Separatists Defy Ukraine Deadline. Pro-Russia separatists occupying government buildings in up to 10 cities and towns in eastern Ukraine on Monday defied a deadline from Kiev to surrender as Moscow promised to “protect” people in the region from violence. Oleksandr Turchynov, Ukraine’s acting president, responded by appealing to Ban Ki-moon, UN secretary-general, to deploy p

C.F. Martin & Company, Established 1833
There was a nice article in Fortune magazine not long ago about Martin Guitar of Nazareth, PA and it’s been hanging around in my Drafts folder, waiting for some Sunday morning when there wasn’t anything else readily available to hoist up. As some of you may know, I grew up just a few miles from Nazareth and Martin Guitar ranks probably a distant second to Mario Andretti in the town’s claim to fame. Even with consumer spending on the uptick, you might not think buyers would be spending their doll

"Low Inflation has Positive Impact and Helps Spain's Competitiveness" Says Economy Minister
Luis de Guindos, Spain's Economy Minister, sings the praises of low inflation. Via translation from El Economista, please consider Economy Minister Says Deflation Has "Positive Impact". James Daniel, Spain's mission advisor to the IMF, said that inflation close to zero in the country increases the burden of debt and real interest rates and difficult to reduce unemployment. Daniel's words contradict the perception Luis de Guindos, the Spanish Minister of Economy and Competitiveness, who also

China Doesn't Need Much Gold To Create a Gold-Based Dollar ...
Although the idea of Classical money — in practice, a gold-based currency — is not popular today in the U.S., it actually has quite a lot of support elsewhere. Both China and Russia are clearly making moves in that direction, even if perhaps in the form of contingency plans should the present dollar-based system become unusable. However, this trend has been handicapped to some degree by the notion that enormous amounts of gold bullion need to be accumulated

The Secret World Of Gold
Submitted by Tyler Durden on 04/19/2014 21:22 -0400 In light of the Chinese demand we discussed earlier, the ongoing manipulation of 'rigged' markets everywhere, and rising geopolitical tensions (as the de-escalation continues), we thought it worth dusting off this excellent  and wide-ranging look at the history and present of the barbarous relic, gathering many perspectives (pro and con) on gold.

How to Make Billions While Making People Happy and Saving the Planet
Real-estate legend Sam Zell said recently that the “End of Suburbia” might be happening. Right here and now. Of course, all the suburban dreck that was built in the last six decades isn’t going to vaporize. But, in terms of new construction — in other words, the real estate development business — reproducing the postwar, automobile-dependent Suburbia pattern is a money-losing proposition. “You’re drawing all the young people in America to these 24/7 ci
