It is curious that physical courage should be so common in the world and moral courage so rare.

  The Fall in International Reserve Assets  (6)
 - Hugo Salinas Price -
I presume you are mostly counting dollars and Treasury bonds and not gold as you mentioned. The world is de-dollarizing and we should start seeing more reserves converted to gold. Also there is a trend to directly trade bi-laterally and skip paying the gringo middleman. This would make the need to keep dollars or any reserve less as a direct exchange rate would facilitate trade without the need for a reserve

  Harvey Organ's Gold and Silver Blog Has Been 'Deleted by Court Order'  (8)

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 ?

  Koos Jansen: The great Chinese silver market debate
 - Chris Powell - GATA
If a buyer is willing and able to pay 17% over spot, that 17% is effectively a premium. Even a seller's profit margin over spot is a premium. And anyone who buys bullion should recognize this little factoid. Perhaps GATA and company don't buy physical?

  ECB Stress Test Results Show Banks Struggling
 - Philippe Herlin - GoldBroker
Excellent catch. Thanks. Consider the question from between these lines: "European banks hold 880 billion euros worth of bad or doubtful loans (e.g. at least 90 days late for payment), and this number represents 4% of their balance sheets. " 4% is 1/25th 880 billion X 25 = 22,000 billion euros Gotta subtract the reserves ~ 4% or 880 billion for 21,120 billion euros. Consider this:(e.g. at least 90 day

  Hyperventilation Charade: EU Demands Another €2.1 Billion from UK, "We Won't Pay," Says Furious Came
 - Mish - Global Economic Analysis
Cui bono? The EU does not wish to see Cameron weakened and Farage strengthened. The rise of UKIP is a major worry to the EU. I think that Cameron will emerge as the man who forced Brussels to back down. If Cameron can be recast as a PM of strength with regard to the EU (don't laugh), then there will be much less reason to vote for Farage and UKIP. Invent a sum owed and then cancel it under the pressure of

  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

Jesse, many of us have gold or miner shares, but cannot or dare not sell at these ridiculously low prices. So even if the monkeys hammer the gold price down for the Comex or FOMC, our hands are tied, as no longer have funds to keep on buying.

  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 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

  Gold and Silver as Standards of Value  (6)
 - 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.

  Will this save the Swiss financial system?  (4)
 - Egon von Greyerz - Matterhorn AM
1. Where will the money come from to buy the gold? 2. What will this additional demand do to the price of gold? 3. What will be the social cost to the Swiss for attempting this gambit? Please pay particular attention to the word "attempt" in the preceding question. Now try to imagine the probable outcome if several countries were to attempt this same tactic at the same time. Interesting times indeed.
