The Gold Standard and the Great Depression

Friday, October 31, 2014
Murray N. Rothbard -
Did Capitalism Cause the Great Depression?
. We see how bank credit expansion in the United States, Great Britain, and other countries (in Britain generated because of the rigid wage structure caused by unions and the unemployment insurance system, as well as a return to the gold standard at too high a par; and in the United States generated by a desire to inflate in order to help Britain as well as an absurd devotion to the ideal of a stable price level) drove the civilized world into a great depression.

The Shadow Pyramid : Derivatives made easy
The derivatives market is not the outcome of a natural development, as falsely suggested by mainstream economics in picturing it as a creature of the market’s immune system fighting riskconcentration.

What is Money ?
"Hateful money! Hateful money!" cried F——, the economist, despairingly, as he came from the Committee of Finance, where a project of paper money had just been discussed. "What's the matter?" I said. "What is the meaning of this sudden dislike to the most extolled of all the divinities of this world?"

A Myth Concerning Gold Confiscation
One factor that is sometimes quoted against a likelihood of government seizure of gold is the alleged fact that only a minority of American citizens turned in their gold after Roosevelt issued executive order 6102 in April 1933

Jesse - Le Cafe Américain
29 October 1929 Remembering the 84th Anniversary of Black Tuesday,
"The truly savage and frenetic part of New York, the terrible, cold, cruel part, is Wall Street. Rivers of gold flow there from all over the earth, and death comes with it. There, as nowhere else, you feel a total absence of the spirit: herds of men who cannot count past three, herds more who cannot get past six, scorn for pure science and demoniacal respect for the present. And the terrible thing is that the crowd that fills this street believes that the world will always be the same, that i

Understanding Silver Price Manipulation 
Is There Silver Price Manipulation? What should the silver market be like? In the broad scope of markets the silver market is tiny. In my opinion it should be a sleepy "quaint" little market. Supply is fairly stable varying about 5% annually. There are never any huge silver discovery announcements.

Where do you keep your Gold ? 
You’ve bought some physical gold – congratulations! We think you’ve made a wise decision. And yes, we’re referring to physical gold that you’ve taken possession of – not electronic gold, ETFs, Perth Mint Certificates, etc. Those are all good choices, but your portfolio is incomplete until you have some coins or bars under your direct, physical control. Personal possession of real gold adds to your security by giving you privacy and portability. It’s gold that no one has to know about, and you can carry $50,000 worth of it in one hand. But where do you keep this best-of-all type of gold without undermining the advantages?

  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.

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.

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

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
