 More Dirt on the Bitcoin  (16)
 - Hugo Salinas Price -
Are bitcoins not open to the same manipulation as paper fiat currencies? What is to stop the controller (some Central bank yet to be created) from issuing more bitcoins?

Answer To :rfcgold3 - 11/13/2015 at 10:01 AM GMT
BITCOINS are real and are an amazing currency .
unlike gold which can be confiscated and can not be traded directly for goods easily .
Bitcoins can not just be printed by governments and are real money .
Bitcons have phenomenal potential . and do not cause massive pollution in their production
unlike gold which legacy of production is massive pollution just look at the acid mine legacy in South Africa which threatens the water supplies of millions of people .
it is a bit daft to dig something useless out of the ground only to rebury it in some secure vault and say that this practice represents real value .
its a non starter in real human terms .
just idiocy . but just printing money is imo just madness .

 Does the Bell Toll for the Fed?  (4)
 - Ron Paul - 
Great article!! The Fed has over the years (and certainly not singlehandedly) altered the very concept of what money is. Besides the debt itself, there is bank leverage, derivatives, options, and other exotic multiplications of real monetary value, interconnected and hidden liabilities, "innovative" accounting, and the resulting failure of individuals, businesses, state and local governments, and federal entities to live within their means. The artificially low cost of money, dictated by the Fed and not the market, has only accentuated the problem.

Dodd-Frank was a good start, but one has to wonder about it's implementation, the creative ability of institutions to find other routes to excess, and the very real and credible fear of the deflationary effects.<...

 Put 10% of your assets in gold and pray it doesn't work.  (7)

And be it further enacted, That

 On the use of gold coins as money  (15)
 - Hugo Salinas Price -

That's what I like about your emphasis on the re-introduction of silver coins into the Mexican economy. Keep it simple. By keeping the quoted value above the price of silver then people don't melt down their coins to redeem the silver.

Money does not have to be complicated and silver provides for plenty of liquidity while maintaining value with insured scarcity. Some day societies will stop with all these money manipulation schemes and focus on producing products and wealth. In such a world the socialists in California and the financiers in New York may have to get real productive jobs or become obsolete.

There's no substitute for physical products we all need and use and lacking that emphasis has led to many of our current problems.

Welfare programs like social security and medicare? I am just curiouos what government do you abide by because the one I have to deal with makes me PAY INTO social security and medicare so they are not WELFARE programs as you say! In fact if the youth of today did not have this program by the time they are eligible to receive it I will wager if social security is not still in force you will see MASS HOMELESSNESS because no one in the U.S. knows how to save money. If the program was not in tact you would have people getting injured living on the streets because they never saved money thinking they are indestructible and getting injured cannot happen to them!

Maybe if people knew how to save money in the U.S. we could get rid of social security because citiz...

 Why the Super Bearish PM COTs Portend a Plunging Euro

Short Gold and Silver because of superbearish COT....this sound a little bit to simple for me. Currently you read the same everywere, it seems to be common sense, that the commercials are ALWAYS right. Frankly, I doubt that, trading never works that way. It can easily be, that the precious metals show resistance or fall only a bit in the short term. When commercials realize, that they won't succeed with their short efforts anymore, they will cover and we will witness an explosive rally to the upside. Just a scenario...

James, there's a lot of positive to be taken from your article. I, for one, have been forced to expand my use of the language ~ looking up YOUR words to find out what you're saying. BUT . . on the Flip Side . . . here, around Elkhart, common street language is definitely Ghetto Dialect. It's NOT Black nor white nor Mexican; it's most often called just "G". I don't know if language is like water ~ always seeking the lowest common denominator ~ or if it's "a Front" to imply a Social Standing . . . or even (perhaps, just maybe) some kind of kinship or Brotherhood among ALL the poor and downtrodden who (by the use of "G") demonstrate they are "equal" to one another ~ or DESIRE to be recognized as "equal" to one another. Perhaps I have some kind of latent desire...

 Intellectual Support For Gold-Based Money Is Leading To Political Support  (4)

Yes, the intellectual impetus is needed. But a big change to the entrenched political status quo is unlikely, until a disaster points to the need for it. Sadly, we will have to wait for this disaster to happen first.

 The Leviathan  (10)
 - James Howard Kunstler - 

As you say, "Fed now finds itself in a trap of its own making" and may now have a problem "getting through the holiday season without a financial accident" because as Peter Schiff says when investors figure out the Fed won't and in fact can't raise interest rates, it will finally stampede to gold's safe haven.

Because of this new jobs report bolstering the economy and signaling that we're finally healthy enough for a rate hike, it's now finally time to sh*t or get off the pot. And when the Fed gets off the pot there's going to be a huge market let down and a flight to safety in the panic as Peter suggests. And between both no income producing safe-havens - gold is going to look far safer than paper Treasury Bonds.

If it does raise rates .2...

 It's nice to talk about ... - Global Convention 2015 Munich: the event which changed the notion of business!
 - Our Forums - 
Hello Friends!
At the beginning of the last month of autumn, energetic business people and those interested in precious metals headed to Munich, one of the main cities of Germany to attend the International Precious Metals & Commodities Show. And another important event for those representing the gold movement all over the world was the Global InterGold Convention. They wanted to find out how to make money with gold and carry our business worldwide.

At present, Munich is a large business center of Europe. Owing to the above mentioned events, the city is rapidly developing. No wonder that foremost people from all parts of the world go to this city to earn!

 Russia Sees Gold Reserves As “Additional Financial Cushion” In Face Of “External Uncertainties”
 - Mark O'Byrne -
My math must be faulty or ... ,

$500 billion.
Assume that is in USD and we use US tons as the metric.
1 ton = 24,000 troy ounces
24,000 ozt X $1100 USD = $26.4 million/ton
$500 billion/$26.4 million = 18,938.4 tons

US gold reserves assumed to be 8,133.5 tonnes
1 tonne = 1.023 US (short) tons
8,133.5 x 1.023 = 8,320.6 tons

 Why hasn't the Fed's QE caused "inflation"?  (3)
 - Steve Saville - Speculative Investor
So the main reason you cite why inflation hasn't shown up is the counteracting deflationary pressure from debt, job and income losses on consumer spending. If that's true then the inflationary effects from the extra money created by QE would only show up in items that people can't avoid buying.

That would be food and the 20% per year of price hikes we've been seeing in the past three years. That's why inflation should be measured only in unavoidable items like food.

All the public needs to realize is that the bleeding heart socialists, the bureaucrats and the nation's leadership that opened the borders to one and all.
That the same bunch fomented the hatred for the Syrian leadership for keeping a lid on the "rule of the clan".
Same thing for the former leaders of Iraq, Libya, Ukraine and other less well known countries.
Since when is the concept of "bringing democracy" to the world mean elimination of the leaders committed to stomping out the "rule of the clan"?

The "rule of the clan" is the greatest enemy of liberty.

 Gold Is the Dollar’s Achilles Heel
 - Dan Popescu - GoldBroker
"The SDR is neither a currency, nor a claim on the IMF. Rather, it is a potential claim on the freely usable currencies of IMF members."

Only one currency can been pegged to the weight of gold. Otherwise mass chaos will occur by multiple arbitrages. Interest bearing bonds denominated by the single currency would be better than physical gold. The trading of gold would also have to be removed from the "Futures Market", otherwise mass chaos.

 SHANGHAI vs COMEX: Opposite Moves In Silver Inventories  (3)
 - Steve St Angelo - SRSRocco Report
Good article, but ...

"The best way to protect oneself from the coming collapse of the U.S. Bond, Stock and Real Estate Markets is to own physical gold and silver."

No! The best is arable land with the skills and inputs needed to put/keep it in food production. Gold and silver carry wealth forward for those times after things settle down and regional commerce begins anew. Otherwise those holding gold and silver will be forced to do the equivalent of eating their seed corn.

Never forget that the weakest link is, was and will continue to be the distribution system. The distribution system is also the highest cost item in the commodity transfer system from producer to end user.

In natural market systems, you must produce a product or ...

 The Success of Irish Austerity: The Joke is on Krugman  (3)
 - Michael Pento - Delta Global Advisors
The first thing to remember is that Krugman did NOT get a Nobel Prize in Economics.
He got the Sveriges Riksbank (Swedish Central Bank) Prize in Economics in Honor of Alfred Nobel.
Banks produce nothing.
They rent money to borrowers, often money the bank doesn't have in stock.

Tis far too easy to forget that government is an extension of the citizenry sharing similar attitudes.
As a citizen's wages increase, for the most part so does their debt load and spending.
It is no different with government. Tax revenues increase and so does spending as well as the number of new programs.
Hence we see the government engaging in tax revenue enhancement schemes and increased borrowing.

The problem occurs when revenues decline, be it in g...
