Missing Gold, Unpayable Debts, Financial Crises, Bail-outs and Bail-Ins …

To Congress and the Administration: Give Bail-UPS and Bail-DOWNS a chance. Clearly bail-outs and bail-ins have been problematic, so let’s progress in a new direction that benefits taxpayers and debtors.

150,000 Cigarettes or 3,275 Ounces of Silver

150,000 Cigarettes or 3,275 Ounces of Silver

A pack of Marlboros cost $0.19 many years ago. A typical price is now $6.50. Since we use unbacked debt based fiat currencies, inflation is here to stay, along with occasional panics, periodic crashes, and wealth transfers to the financial cartel. Exchanging a small expense every day for a purchase of silver will create a considerable stack of silver over 20 years. The expense is gone but the silver endures. We have choices as individuals and as nations. More silver and less fiat currency is, in my opinion, a good choice.

Gold Bashers – Just For You!

Gold Bashers – Just For You!

There is no shortage of negative commentary on gold and silver. A quick google search will produce headlines which make that point. Not all objections and criticisms of gold are intellectually honest – they slant the narrative to support their bias in favor of the status quo, stocks, bonds, and central bank issued currencies, such as Federal Reserve Notes. The dishonesty is understandable since gold is often viewed as an anti-dollar and gold prices sometimes function as a check on the excessive debt creation.

When Gold Does Beat Paper

When Gold Does Beat Paper

Negative interest rates, cash ban, gold ban, private cash hoarding, cash hoards under Swiss soil – these are all concepts we would have considered figments of a sci-fi writer’s imagination not long ago. Come what may, it will not be easy: neither for the interventionists and control freaks trying to keep a lid on the consequences of their own doings, nor for the people trying to lead a normal economic life without massive restrictions.

Gold and the Parable of 3 Squirrels, 2 Vultures, and 1 Turtle

Gold and the Parable of 3 Squirrels, 2 Vultures, and 1 Turtle

There will always be hawks and vultures in our financial world. If you are not a hawk, don’t want to be a vulture, are worried about “black swans,” own no “tame” politicians, and want to protect the purchasing power of your assets, then use gold and silver for financial insurance and protection, just as the shell protects the turtle.

Can Gold Save The World From the Credit Bubble?

Can Gold Save The World From the Credit Bubble?

The credit bubble has grown so large that the supposed central bank gold would have to be valued at $40,000 to $80,000 per ounce to back all the debt. Revaluing gold higher by a large factor may become necessary in the future to reestablish confidence in currencies. However a revaluation certainly will not be welcomed by central banks, governments, or most individuals. The transition to $80,000 gold, or even $10,000 gold, would be very traumatic.

The US Is A Corporation. Precious Metals Stand In The Way.

Where have all the trillions of newly created “money” gone? Into the failed and bankrupt banking scam conducted by the elites. All world-wide monetary policy undertaken by the central banks has been for the sole purpose of protecting the failed banking financial structure, propping up the fiat currencies.

Debt Bubble: Twilight Zone Economics

Debt Bubble: Twilight Zone Economics

When debt is rolled over and never repaid, how much is the debt truly worth? Would you lend money to someone who assured you he could only repay the debt by borrowing a larger amount from another person? Clearly not, but this is normal in modern “twilight zone” finance. Gold and silver are real. All paper currencies and fiat debt are less real, less solid, and less reliable. Worse, these are becomes increasingly less real and more unreliable every year as governments devalue their currencies.

Gold, Greece, The Death Of Paper Money And The Modern State

For those who understand the tremendous financial and geopolitical forces that today are vying not so much for supremacy as they were previously, but for survival; gold remains as it always has been—a store of value in times of monetary chaos and economic distress. In March 2007, I predicted that an economic crisis would happen. It did. That crisis has yet to run its course to make way for the better world to come. In my Dollars & Sense youtube video, . I make another forecast. These are interesting times. Get used to it.

Silver and Gold Will Thrive Beyond Exponential Growth of Debt

Silver and Gold Will Thrive Beyond  Exponential Growth of Debt

Systems will reset and change when exponential growth at current or reduced rates becomes impossible. The transition is likely to be difficult, dangerous, and the ensuing trauma will not fade quietly into the night. Exponentially increasing debt supported by nothing more than exponentially increasing promises will end in national and/or global disaster. When the reset comes, and it may be years away, would you rather hold assets that are based on debt, trust in a possibly insolvent counter-party, and denominated in the currency of an increasingly insolvent government and central bank . . . . or physical gold and silver?

The Titanic Sinks At Dawn

Lives were lost, paper stock certificates were gone, bonds did not survive, dollar bills were destroyed, but gold and silver endured the sinking of the Titanic over a century ago.

Mind The Risks Of Sovereign Debt, Fiat Currencies, And Leveraged Paper Investments

Mind The Risks Of Sovereign Debt, Fiat Currencies, And Leveraged Paper Investments

The S&P, crude oil, gold and silver have exponentially increased in price as fiat currencies have been devalued. Consumer price inflation destroys purchasing power, especially when interest rates are low or negative. Unbacked paper fiat currencies are well and truly on the road to oblivion, and the lambs are being led to the slaughter of assets invested in sovereign debt, fiat currencies, and leveraged paper assets.

A Tale of Two Cities

A Tale of Two Cities

Our fictional City A might resemble some major cities in the western hemisphere. It is inhabited by regular people as well as politicians, rats, and central bankers. Currency units are digital, purchase less every year, and are created in large quantities every day. The political and financial elite control most of the government and the economy for their own benefit. Economic statistics and financial TV continually assure the people that “it’s all good.” The crashes of 2000, 2006, and 2008 caused many people to question the usual narrative.
