  Moral Dilemma: Should a Libertarian Who Does Not Need Food Stamps, but Qualifies for Them, Take Them  (3)
 - Mish - Global Economic Analysis
Certainly, that's part of it. But there are plenty of liberals that have at least some assets, that nevertheless have no morality to question. On the other hand, it seems like libertarians are forever questioning what is the morally right thing to do.

I'm not an expert and probably don't even have a very firm grasp on what goes on in the market. I've done some reading to try to get a basic understanding but the problem lies with who wrote the article you're reading. One says this, another articles says the opposite. It's kind of like trying to find the truth about politics and politicians. It's just this last time the prices went up quickly and i

"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

  The Second Greatest Story Ever Told  (8)
 - Antal E. Fekete - Gold University
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.

  The West's Reckless Rush Towards War with Russia  (6)
 - Chris Martenson - 
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.

overtheedge, I just want to say, awesome post! I strongly agree with your opinion here, and really liked the quote from Dune at the end!! Trying to store and hold onto stuff not in my immediate vicinity is not an option for me. I'm simply too poor to even consider attempting such a thing, even if I thought it were a good idea. If it's in my hand then I can attempt to defend it. But I don't have the money

  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.

  A World Without Fractional Reserve Banks and Central Planning  (8)
 - John Rubino - Dollar Collapse
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

It doesn't make sense that Gazans would fire unguided crude rockets for little effect and incurring a hail of bombs. I suspect Isreal is secretly firing those rockets as a pretext to getting the natural gas under Gaza and genociding the Gazans. Some day we will know the truth. Israel is known for these kinds of false flag attacks as their leadership is allied with our notorious Jesuit rulers and their Zio

It is easy to forget Occam's Razor in regards to Ukraine. For the same reasons that the North attacked the South during the US Civil War, so does Ukraine attack its own people in the East. It is all about money in the form of resources needed to service debt. If a chunk of any nation goes away, so goes away a chunk of a very important and needed tax base. International debt can't be serviced. Ukraine WI

"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.

You need only answer one question to yourself. Has the US government ever fired on its own citizenry with intent to wound or kill? If something happens once, it is absolute proof that it can and will probably happen again.

  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.

"In this transitional period to a new world order where uncertainty and risks dominate, gold is money in extremis and the preferred central banks’ reserve.

United States has a long tradition of confiscation or freezing of foreign assets when it considers it in its “national interest”." The official US gold value

 - 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.
