  Gold and Silver as Standards of Value  (5)
 - Lysander Spooner - 
If gold is not money, and all the different uses of working gold coins into plate, jewelry etc., the total demand for gold is X. At that demand level the price of gold is Y. If gold is made money there is another use, which would increase the demand to X+1. Additional demand increases the price of anything, but Spooner seems to insist that it does not.

  McDonald's Vows Fresh Thinking After Net Income Declines 30%; Mish Offers Some Advice
 - Mish - Global Economic Analysis
Please reconsider asking for lower prices...the only way McDonald's can do that is to cut back on food quality. Seeing as they're already down to putting wood pulp in their "meat" and other foodlike products, I shudder to think what they might do to reduce quality further. I also avoid the fast food places. I took my lady to a burger place today. I had a turkey burger, she the veggie burger. We each had frie

Excellent article. This is the big one in my opinion. "It's a mathematical certainty that every country cannot have a trade surplus." It needs to be repeated until it sinks in. This realization won't help us this time, but maybe the passengers on starship Earth can remember it for the next time. I consider this an excellent reason to clear the balance of payments every 90 days. Any unwillingness or ina

  Challenge to Keynesians "Prove Rising Prices Provide an Overall Economic Benefit"
 - Mish - Global Economic Analysis
I gave you one star for being such a damn fool. Turn off the money spigots. Freeze wages and prices. That will eliminate rising prices and to the best of my knowledge the only way to stop rising prices. And just what the hell happens when wage and price controls are enforced? Shortages, empty shelves and a blackmarket. Debts will clear by defaulting, banks will fail, any remaining confidence in the curre

  The Virtue of Hoarding  (11)
 - George F. Smith - Barbarous Relic
Excellent article. Two major reasons why hoarding is verbotten that were missed in the article. 1. When the velocity of money slows, the tax revenue stream drastically declines. Every transaction provides for a government skim. Half as many transactions, half as much skim. That skim gets recycled into more transactions providing for more skim. Simplified example: $100 profit and the tax rate is 20%. Af

"The appalling thing is that Russia’s central bank should know this, because they are the ones that did it, and it worked for them. But, they seem to have forgotten. (Presumably there are new people there now.) Monetary affairs, today, is in the hands of doofuses, in Russia and everywhere else. People don’t believe this when I say it. But, what else would you call it?" Then again, maybe the author forgot tha

Julian, I know it seems (to me) to be a rhetorical question when you ask: " What pragmatic means are left for governments and central banks to create growth?

The last time the Banks and Gov asked those computers, back in the 2007 Collapse, they received the reply: " There is no mathematical way to recover from this

  Post-Foreclosure Hell: Garnished Wages, Seized Assets, Deficiency Judgments

I'm not a lawyer or a judge and I don't play one on TV, but ... I look at the XIIIth Amendment to the US Constitution and I think I might see something behind the "Great Oz" curtain. Deficiency judgements are civil. If you sign a contract and then refuse to abide by the conditions of said contract, is that defined as fraud? If not currently, might it become so overnight?

  NAV Premiums of Certain Precious Metal Trusts and Funds
 - Jesse - Le Cafe Américain
Did you see how fast the gold miners shares dropped as the stocks plunged this afternoon? Even as the price of gold went up! Either the folks in gold were forced to sell to cover margin calls, or the hedge funds simply 'threw the baby (gold miners) out with the water'. When you add the bank & Fed manipulators to the mix is an absolute circus. Jesse, what's Harvey Organ doing now that his blog has been shu

  Harvey Organ's Gold and Silver Blog Has Been 'Deleted by Court Order'  (8)
 - Jesse - Le Cafe Américain
He did a recent story on the squeeze in the physical silver market. From memory, suggesting a physical default looming in December. Somebody please correct me if i am wrong... It makes some sense considering how hard silver has been hammered down recently. Taking down his blog seems to be an act of desperation. More coming ?

  Lessons from Babylon the Great  (14)
 - Philip Judge - Anglo Far East
Was it not Iran (modern Persia) that successfully by-passed the FRN in a gold for oil trade ? "The ancient city of Babylon had been a monument to the high achievement of modern man. It boasted fortification and strength, military-might and wisdom in design, yet at its core was a dependence on a fragile system, and as a result the city fell to the enemy without a fight."

The takeover of America occurred in 1913 with the Federal Reserve Act and since then the dollar's "backed by gold " standard has been whittled down gradually til it became totally unbacked in 1971. The theft of America's gold in the 30s by the foreign Fed crooks was exposed by House Banking chairman Louis McFadden when he called for the arrest of the Fed in the congressional record in 1934.

One thing that needs to be remembered is "if any system, be it a lawnmower or the US economy, needs to be constantly tweaked to give the impression of being operational, then it ain't fixed". Then the question comes down to one of rational reasoning. Why would anyone send a system back to the same technicians who failed to fix it the last time? And the time before that? And before that?

"Hopefully, you will respond by acting to protect yourself before the “end game” of currency collapse commences. " ... before the “end game” ... I contend it has already begun and it began a long, long time ago. Do any of the actions taken by TBTF, TPTB, FRB, EU, etc. ad nauseum appear to be preventive measures? Which of these actions qualify as mitigating? Then what about repair and restoration? Hmmm.

So the Euro is NOT a fiat currency? Using the same reasoning, the Saudi riyal is NOT fiat because it is tied to the USD.
