If the IMF ever told the real truth and do the right thing, I would faint from disbelief. If you take a loan from the IMF, you are taking a poison pill. And Governments seem to love this poisonous stuff called debt. I imagine it's because they can create it(debt) almost out of thin air. I wouldn't know what that's like, nor would I want to know.

But Ukranian government is bombing and shelling in East Ukraine that is killing hundreds of civilians and making more than 800K refuges, and west world doesn't say anything, nor the UN Security Council.

Yes, is quite funny when US gets rid of a president he doesn't like, put in place a selected president, and then the new president ask for military support from NATO, and even seek to

Getting a Vote-Down Happens all the time. It's The Custom ~ among people who think in the "he's telling the truth, but his words upset the status quo" kind of way ~ to reject (vote down) the truth. Of course, it could be Paid Shills wanting to influence Public Opinion; but those usually state some kind of propaganda view, that makes no sense, in opposition.

Germany's gold is just as safe and secure as its Target2 account holding over 460 Milliarde* Euros. Is that 460 Milliarde Euros just a computer entry and no physical monies exist? But like many accounts, there are substantial penalties for early withdrawal. The banks decide what is early and what are the penalties. The banks decides force majeure.

Silver's purchasing power has indeed pretty much remained the same. Back in 1964, before they took the silver out of our coinage, you could buy a gallon of gas for a Quarter, which was a quarter ounce of silver. The Quarter at that time was 90% silver. In 1965 the silver content was removed and now we have copper filled quarters(and zinc filled pennies started in 1981). But if I have a quarter ounce silver roun

What's really odd about that list is how often the "new" price is in the area of 20x the old price, at least when you're around 50-100 years ago. It's almost as though the purchasing power of an ounce of silver (which is basically what "$1" represented over a century ago) has remained the same, while the purchasing power of a dollar has fairly consistently dropped 95% over that time period.

Goldman Sachs has basically a 100% success rate on trades (feel free to correct me if I'm wrong). So, I'd sure love GS to be wrong, but, bottom line, they have a chokehold on trading that simply guarantees they will be right. Right up until the point they are wrong, of course.

  Hugo Salinas Price: Fiat money and independence for Scotland

Good plug for genuine money. Few realize that global overpopulation is driven by excessive Fiat currency because the masses don't have that brake on their fertility. The population decline of the 30s Depression showed the dampening affect of austerity. Many economists like to defend Fiat currency money supply expansion with the excuse of keeping up with an increasing population as if it's some runaway trai
