Peak Debt And The Need For A Reliable Store of Value

Despite all of the disparaging talk about precious metals, I believe that the current low levels offer spectacular value.

Global Players at the Financial Poker Table

Global Players at the Financial Poker Table

The Fed and Treasury can “print” trillions of currency units and commercial banks can borrow into existence trillions more, but ultimately gold and silver must be revalued much higher to compensate for the extraordinary printing and devaluation of fiat currencies.

Gold and Silver, Good and Bad Choices

Buying gold in early January 1980 and for much of the next 19 years was probably a bad choice, so do your own research to make good choices. While trading paper currencies for gold is, in my opinion, currently a good exchange, it is not always a good choice.

War is the Health of the State And How To Protect Against It

Most people don’t question what their government does, especially when it comes to foreign policy. This gives power-hungry politicians the opportunity to lie to the public, so they willingly accept a war in a foreign country. A recent example is the Iraq war, where the public was led to believe that Saddam was hiding weapons of mass destruction and was an imminent threat to the United States. After the invasion, however, it turned out that Iraq had no WMDs and the threat was exaggerated to gain public support for the war. I am confident that physical Gold and Silver can protect you to a certain extent from government tyranny.

My guess is, based on the historical record, not many will give it up.

Gold was formerly the “canary in the coal mine” indicating the failure of monetary and fiscal policies. But active suppression of gold prices has replaced the “canary” with a plastic look-alike that disguises the warning signal which tells us that something is very wrong with our monetary policies.
