Real Bills, Phony Wealth 
"The masses are misled by the assertions of the pseudo-experts,” wrote Mises, “that cheap money can make them prosperous at no expense whatever.” The damage that this inflationary fallacy has done to our monetary institutions cannot be over-estimated. In spite of efforts by classical and Austrian economists to refute it, it refuses to die. It has been resurrected under many guises, but all with the same error at its core: that printing money can create real wealth.

Brent Cook's Primer on Reading Drill Result Press Releases
The Gold Report: After the Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada Convention in March, you said that the next 12?18 months could define how investors, speculators and mining companies perceive and value both the junior and major mining sectors. That was before the volatility of mid-April. With higher production costs being the new normal, what percentage of miners can make money at the current gold price? Brent Cook: That is a tough call because companies use different methods to repo

The Life Cycle of Money
In the aftermath of the global economic crisis of 2008-2009, governments throughout the world have fostered a tenuous recovery predicated on massive increases in money supplies and debasement of currencies. Note however, that monetary debasement is not a recent phenomenon; it is simply the natural life cycle of money.There are six well-defined stages in the life cycle of money.

The Bank of England, 1844-1913 2: The Banking Department
We are continuing our look at the Bank of England during the period 1844-1913. In 1844, the Bank fell under a new regulation and reorganization, in which it was separated into two entities, the Issue Department and the Banking Department. The Issue Department was solely responsible for paper banknotes, and operated a system very similar to the "Making Change" or currency-board type system we looked at earlier.

What is Freegold
Four years ago, Freegoldtube made a video titled "What is Freegold?" It evolved out of a series of events that began with the stunning collapse in the price of gold, from $1,600 down to $1,380 in first half of April, 2013. That collapse caused Jim Sinclair to email me asking about Freegold, which caused him to then make some confusing posts on his own blog about Freegold, which caused Ein Anderer to suggest that we were in "urgent need" of a short and simple explanation of Freegold.

Why bad economic theories remain popular 
Ludwig von Mises and Friedrich Hayek, the most prominent “Austrian” economists of the time, anticipated the 1929 stock market crash and correctly predicted the dire consequences of government attempts to artificially stimulate economic growth in the aftermath of the crash. John Maynard Keynes, on the other hand, was totally blindsided by the stock market crash and the economic disaster of the early 1930s. And yet, Keynes’s theories gained enormous popularity during the 1930s whereas the work of
