  The Keynesian Counterfactual is Japan  (4)
 - Michael Pento - Delta Global Advisors
What's interesting about this is if you try to point out the Japanese failure of pure Keynesian policies to a liberal/Keynesian, he's just say "The US isn't the same as Japan, it's a bigger country, so Keynesianism works here." But then when you point out how other socialist policies failed horribly (like in the USSR), they just point to how Denmark or Finland have socialist policies that work fine...for the ti

  Deflation or Runaway Inflation
 - Antal E. Fekete - Gold University
Your description of how the American public allowed their currency to be debased only highlights the need to ensure that the public is thoroughly educated in the dangers of currency debasement resulting in inflation and deflation and the need to understand genuine money that gold and silver affords. Only a healthy, vigilant public can watch over the money and ensure that a clever foreign syndicate doesn't ag

  Neighborhood Bully - America Recklessly Throws its Weight Around  (13)

"Nothing prevents anyone from paying for oil in euros." Saddam wanted to sell his oil for Euros and we know what happened to him. They had to LIE their a$$es off and destroy the country to get him. The War criminals still walk free. Gaddafi wanted to start a gold backed African dollar, NATO saw the end of that idea. Why NATO? He did not attack a NATO member. RIP Gaddafi. Putin is now on the NATO HIT list. S

  No escape from the dollar as the currency standard  (6)
 - Alasdair Macleod - Finance and Eco.
Why did China pre-arrange over 23 bilateral trade agreements among major powers bypassing the reserve dollar. I believe there isn't going to be any enforced third party global reserve currency after the reserve dollar and Petrodollar collapses. It's not necessary. There will be many bilateral trade agreements between buyers and sellers as China has arranged already. The new currencies that replace the d

"... artificially-low interest rates, also known as financial repression, lead to disaster by inducing people to borrow too much money via either short-term or variable-rate loans. " Inducing?

You say, " bills would be offset against one another and only the difference in face values would be paid in gold coins on the last day of the fair."

How this could replace Paypal and modern check writing and fund transfers. I agree that gol

1SnGI The author is French so the counter-party reference issue might have been a translation artifact. Your reply inferred that you got his drift correct. The rest? I had no problem with your rant. You're asking the right questions. Been my experience that most citizenry don't understand enough to ask a question. Ergo my frustration.

"But immediately comes to mind the question of risk: “If this business goes bankrupt, I’m going to lose my gold.” So we understand that the interest (or dividend) acts as counterparty to that risk." Huh? Maybe I'm misunderstanding something here. But in my opinion, or perhaps I should really state it as fact... The counterparty is the business that you are dealing with.

The Student College Loan Program to make college affordable is similar to the Affordable Care Act. They both are a collosal hoax. Far from making college affordable, student loans only cripple students financially while the colleges themselves rake off the gevernment funds as they merely raise the tuition costs.
