"that YOU are one of those people who desires the elimination of Your Legal Border. Be careful what you wish for ! !" It's probably because I am more than just sympathetic to anarcho-capitalists. In other words, I believe I am one. However, I believe Ron Paul gave the best/most correct answer a person could give when he was asked if he was actually an anarcho-capitalist. He said, "I believe that's the ultima

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." This sounds similar to nations prior to 1971 using gold to settle up trade imbalances periodically. I wonder how this system can work between consumers and vendors? How this could replace Paypal and modern check writing and fund transfers. I agree that gol

  The Keynesian Counterfactual is Japan  (6)
 - Michael Pento - Delta Global Advisors
Keynesian policies do benefit the powers-that-be in the near term, otherwise they'd be ditched. For the middle term there's the promise of bailouts. No one is concerned about the long term. Even if they were they'd blame it on the influence of free market commentators who somehow are intimidating the central bankers and government policy makers. Great article.

That's what the real world is coming to conclusion. No one believes the double talk and hypocrisy. What is crooked cannot be made straight. Perhaps reality will set in when what they wish for happens not in a far country but in their own backyard. Credibility is now all lost in fantasy and mindless rhetoric.

  Trapped in Venezuela: Looking to Get Out? Good Luck!
 - Mish - Global Economic Analysis
Yeah, "It can't happen here" is a terrible, terrible, assumption to make. I'll grant it's unlikely to happen tomorrow, but it's certain it'll happen at some point. It may be six months (or less), or sixty years (or more)...but past that I can't narrow it down much. My own feeling is it'll happen in my lifetime, but there's a decent chance I'll get lucky and die first.

Every change starts with people dreaming about it and spreading the new ideas. There exists an organisation in Europe that is getting stronger every day, with the purpose of changing the banking model. More and more people, both ordinary people from the street but also informed people from finance and academia, are aware of the problem. Check www.positivemoney.org

  Useful Idiots and The Something For Nothing Society - Part IV of V  (4)

Whilst I empathise with some of the content in this article I take exception to the 'its all mine' philoshophy. Societies do not belong to rich citizens even though these folk may disagree. Societies are a collective and we all live in the same fishbowl, the poor unable to survive without business and the rich unable to survive without poor and average citizens WHO MAKE MARKET.

"However, unbeknownst to the monetary manipulators, many of the activities (speculations, investments and businesses) that have sprung-up in response to years of easy money will not be economically viable in a world where the money supply grows more slowly and interest rates are closer to a level that provides a real return to savers.

Jesse, the media puts out a picture of hope, and so 'it must be true'. Joe the Plummer thinks folks like you are certifiable, as he still trusts the Feds, Congress and the House to take care of everything. We live in very strange times.

  I Blame The Central Banks  (5)
 - Chris Martenson - 
You're right the Fed made the fatal decisions and were even responsible for bribing and threatening potiticans so they would not interfere. Note that congress could have disolved the Fed overnight according to the 1913 Fed Act. Where I feel really let down is the chemical dumbing down of the public by poisons placed in our food, water and medicine so the Fed would get no trouble from the comotose public.

Goldco Precious Metals agrees with this article - also, we'd like to add that even though there may SEEM to be bad news surrounding precious metals, there's still some interesting things going on with gold. Globally, central banks purchased 118 tons of gold in the second quarter of 2014, which represents a 28% increase since 2013.

 - Cécile Philippe - 
"Incapable of reforming itself" This is obviously true to the extent that NO nation under the yoke of the EU is permitted any reform of a significant nature. The reform necessary is a return to sound money ( I'm preaching to the choir-i know). Any nation that actually moves to reform is either bombed or sanctioned or both by you know who. End the Fed ? Clearly, this is not working and will only end badly.
