  Trapped in Venezuela: Looking to Get Out? Good Luck!
Every day, the cost of a plane ticket out of Venezuela goes up. That assumes you can get a plane ticket, and you probably cannot, even if you booked three months ago.  Delta Air Lines, American Airlines, and Lufthansa cut the number of flights. Air Canada stopped all service. Economy class tickets to New York city cost as much as $3,000, if you can get them. And you probably can't. Instead, people take five-day rides to Lima, Peru as a means of escape. And that takes money as well. The result

John Rubino - Dollar Collapse
  A World Without Fractional Reserve Banks and Central Planning 
Excerpted From The Money Bubble: What To Do Before It Pops by James Turk and John Rubino In a very real sense, it is fractional reserve banking and not money itself that is the root of so many of today's evils. Whenever fractional reserves are permitted, the banking system - including the one that exists today throughout the world - comes to resemble a classic Ponzi scheme which can only function as long as most people don't try to get at their money. A Better System Now

  From Bondage to Bondage 
A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the Public Treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidate promising the most benefits from the Public Treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy always to be followed by dictatorship.

  Moral Dilemma: Should a Libertarian Who Does Not Need Food Stamps, but Qualifies for Them, Take Them
Here's the moral dilemma of the day: Suppose you are a staunch Libertarian, doing reasonably well and you don't need food stamps. Yet, under perverse rules, you qualify for them. Should you take them? Reader Steven faces that exact question. Steven writes ... Hi Mish In response to your article 40% of U.S. on Welfare; Obamacare Expands Welfare by 23 Million; More on Welfare Than Full-Time-Employed I confess my own moral dilemma. I am the beneficiary of trusts left to me by my parents. Th

And when the economic recovery and stock market build-up is finally revealed for the conjecture that it really is we’ll have a sell-off of unprecedented proportions.

  NAV Premiums of Certain Precious Metal Trusts and Funds - Currency Wars 
"Among the calamities of war may be justly numbered the diminution of the love of truth, by the falsehoods which interest dictates and credulity encourages." Samuel Johnson There is a very little bit of a 'flight to safety' today as the war of words in the Ukraine heats up.  Propaganda is flying hot and heavy from both sides of that border.  Equities are downright complacent, and the precious metals are capped with fair regularity.  All is good, nothing to see here.  Move along.

  How To Hide Your Gold And Silver 
The following tips for where to store your gold are provided by Now that you are potentially making the decision to move into true money, the question arises of where to take delivery of and safeguard your precious metals.  Taking physical delivery of your gold or silver is often the most rewarding part of the purchasing experience, as it gives you, the bullion investor, a fuller understanding of the real value of tangible monetary assets.

"We run carelessly to the precipice after we have put up a façade to prevent ourselves from seeing it.” Blaise Pascal   Here is a brief excerpt from an article today by the amazing team of Pam and Russ Martens at Wall Street On Parade titled, Are U.S. Markets Liquid and Deep or Rigged and Broken? I suggest you read the entire article when you have the opportunity. "...the SEC which oversees stock exchanges has allowed both the New York Stock Exchange and Nasdaq to create a bifurcated market.

  The "Escape Velocity" Myth
Making sense by replacing "despite" with "because of"In February of 2009 we wrote that if the story unfolded as we expected then a lot of future economic commentary would begin with the word "despite", but that in most cases the commentary would be a lot closer to the truth if "despite" were replaced with "because of". Our 2009 assessment remains applicable in that most commentators still don't get it and still say "despite" when they should be saying "because of". For example:1) Here's the way

  Will the US succeed in breaking Russia to maintain dollar hegemony?... 
In Why they are making an enemy of Russia? we looked at two of the key reasons why the US is making an enemy of Russia, namely the promotion of conflict by the powerful Defense industry lobby in order to keep its order books full, and the value of conjuring up an external enemy as a hate figure for the masses, in order to take the heat off the government. In this article we are going to look at what is arguably an even bigger reason, that was largely omitted in the earlier article, which is that

  Why Global Bond Yields Are Tumbling 
Market pundits appear to be mostly dumbfounded as global bond yields continue to set record lows. For some examples; the 10 year German bund fell below 1%., the Italian 10 year note has dropped below 2.60%, Spanish bonds fell to 2.40 % and Japan is offering a shocking one half of one percent to borrow funds for ten years. Even Greece, whose bonds were on ECB life support just two years ago, has a 10 year note yielding below 6%. Worldwide bond yields are at all-time lows, leaving mark

  Rebels Launch Counteroffensive: 4,000 Ukrainian Forces Trapped; Federalism to Save Ukraine?
If you believe mainstream media then you believe the rebels are surrounded, on the run, and a victory party for Kiev is on the way. Other reports tell a far different story. If you believe pro-Russia news sources, the rebels are on the march, headed towards the Black Sea, and a counteroffensive in Donetsk and Lugansk is underway. In this version of the story, the Ukrainian army is stretched way to far, support lines are cutoff, and the army is suffering huge losses of men and equipment. "Donb
