Real Silver Highs 
The first question burning a hole in every silver investor’s mind is just how high did silver rocket in 1980 in today’s dollars? Its January 21st, 1980 all-time closing high of $48 translates into just under $122 today! Obviously this is vastly higher than anything we have seen in 25 years and it highlights just how low silver’s price is today in real terms trading under $10. This metal remains very cheap in its young bull market.

Treasures and Gold Fever - Edgar Allan Poe
The Gold Bug (Edgar Allan Poe) 
Gold Bug is a (sometimes pejorative) term used to describe people who are very bullish on Gold. It can an also be used to refer to a person who opposes or criticizes the use of fiat currency and supports a return to the use of the Gold Standard or some other currency system based on the value of gold and other hard assets. The term was popularized in the 1896 US Presidential Election, when William McKinley supporters took to wearing gold lapel pins, gold neckties, and gold headbands in a demonstration of support for gold against the

The Shovel and Hole Maneuver For Hiding Gold, Guns and Other Assets 
At one time, securing your assets at your local bank branch seemed like a good idea. But we can no longer consider traditional safe deposit boxes as safe. This has has been demonstrated recently in England with the seizure or thousands of supposedly secure boxes, as well as California, where local governments have already seized assets

Juniors ? The Butterflies in the Animal Farm of the investing world ?
One way to explain this phenomenon is to compare these Junior Mining companies(JMs) to the world of butterflies (and moths). The laws of Darwinian survival of the fittest and the strategies for survival have some remarkable parallels!

  Securing Property Rights in the Absence of a State 
Many Rothbardians are vowing not to vote in this or any election since voting only supports the State.But I wonder if they could be persuaded otherwise if they knew one of the ballot choices were to dissolve the governments and replace them with voluntary market institutions.Of course, we don’t have that choice, and most people would either laugh or be scared to death if it were proposed.

The Monetary Breakdown of the West
To understand the current monetary chaos, it is necessary to trace briefly the international monetary developments of the 20th century, and to see how each set of unsound inflationist interventions has collapsed of its own inherent problems, only to set the stage for another round of interventions.

  Golden Secrets (III) Yamashita’s Gold
Another golden stash of even greater volume is Yamashita's Gold that was plundered by the Japanese for decades from conquered Asian countries. In order to hide the gold from the US it was hidden in caves in the Philippines but the US found the gold and it has been using it to fund covert operations ever since. This secret gold stash is claimed to be in the 100,000-300,000+ ton range but again nobody really knows.

Harry Hurt III - Playboy
IN THE SUMMER of 1979, an invisible hand reached out from an island in the Atlantic and quietly began tight¬ening its grip on the world’s sup¬ply of silver. The fingers of that hand extended to London, New York, Dal¬las, Zurich and Jidda. But the only visible clue to its existence was a newly formed Bermuda shell corporation called International Metals Investment Company Ltd. That dull-sounding lit¬tle trading company was not just an¬other offshore tax scam but the operating front for a secret partnership seemingly capable of controlling the world price and supply of silver.

Oct 8, 1974 Ford “Whip Inflation Now” Speech
Mr. Speaker, Mr. President, distinguished guests, my very dear friends: In his first inaugural address, President Franklin D. Roosevelt said, and I quote: The people of the United States have not failed .... They want direct, vigorous action, and they have asked for discipline and direction under our leadership. Today, though our economic difficulties do not approach the emergency of 1933, the message from the American people is exactly the same. I trust that you are getting the very same message that I am receiving: Our constituents want leadership, our constituents want action.

Memories Of The Souk Al Manakh
How large can a bubble grow before it bursts? Farther than you think. And there need not be a fatal pinprick that makes it burst. And when it bursts, the crash that ensues can be deeper and more discontinuous than you could ever imagine. In May of 1982, while the bear market in US stocks was in its deepest throes, and the epic bear market in US bonds was still completing its base, I was called to advise on the greatest stock market bubble of all time---the Souk al Manakh in the Persian Gulf. Kuwait had had an organized stock market for some time. The great wealth created in Kuwait by the rise in the oil price in the 1970's led to seemingly endless appreciation in Kuwaiti stocks. In the Arab states in those days, only sheiks could grant corporate charters, and only corporations could become publicly traded companies. The royal family of Kuwait did not freely grant corporate charters for companies that might become
