Panics, Manias and Crashes - 24hgold
Oct 24, 1907 - Jesse Livermore and the 1907 Crisis. A day I shall never forget 
October 24, 1907. Reports from the money crowd early indicated that borrowers would have to pay whatever the lenders saw fit to ask. There wouldn't be enough to go around. That day the money crowd was much larger than usual. When delivery time came that afternoon there must have been a hundred brokers around the Money Post, each hoping to borrow the money that his firm urgently needed. Without money they must sell what stocks they were carrying on margin-sell at any price they could get in a market where buyers were as scarce as money and just then there was not a dollar in sight.

Gold secrets - Bix Weir
Golden Secrets (IV) The Chinese Imperial Gold 
A third is the rumored Chinese Imperial Gold that Benjamin Fulford has claimed to have knowledge of. This treasure is so vast that Fulford's contacts has put the total of above ground physical gold in the world closer to 1,000,000 tons instead of the official number of 160,000 tons. The basic fact is that Eastern countries have coveted gold for centuries and it makes sense that most of the gold ever mined in the world is located somewhere in Asia. Even today, India imports around 33% of all the gold mined in the world and have been the largest gold importer for years.

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. The 20th-century history
