  • Gold Standard: the Perfect Prescription

    74 Reads | 0 Comments | November 5, 2013

    Boiled down to the simplest terms; all economies must choose one of two “systems” in which to operate. They can choose a credit-based (i.e. debt-based) economy, or they can choose a “cash” (i.e. pay-as-you-go) economy. This is a simple tautology, and so beyond debate. This brings us to simple arithmetic. For any society which chooses the credit-based system; this...

  • The Truth About Western (Un)Employment

    126 Reads | 0 Comments | October 31, 2013

    “Structural unemployment” (i.e. permanent unemployment) is nothing new in Western societies. Indeed, it has been a constant fact-of-life in our economies ever since the Industrial Revolution. What is new is the choice by Western governments to ignore this problem – which is now a gigantic crisis. The dynamics here are as simple as they are unequivocal. At the dawn of the...

  • The Great Inflation Lie

    182 Reads | 0 Comments | October 28, 2013

    Low inflation is not good for the economy because very low inflation increases the risks of deflation, which can cause an economy to stagnate. The evidence is that falling and low inflation can be very bad for an economy. - B.S. Bernanke, Chairman of the Federal Reserve, October 2013 The economic Revisionism above is arguably the most-evil lie being propagated in the world today. While...

  • U.S. Hyperinflation and Cultural Insanity

    149 Reads | 0 Comments | October 24, 2013

    Hyperinflation is an insidious, economic killer. It inevitably (but insanely) creeps up on its Victims in plain sight, before decimating them with an always unexpected ambush. How can one of the most-obvious of all economic phenomena always end up as a “surprise”? Because none of the Victims ever believe that hyperinflation is possible. Point out that the U.S. dollar has lost 98...

  • Countdown

    97 Reads | 0 Comments | October 15, 2013

    Given the title of this commentary; it would be understandable if readers mistakenly assumed that this would be more yammering about the nauseating, U.S. Debt-Ceiling Farce. But that is a piece of staged theater, and this is an article about precious metals – and the two subjects have no connection. Of course one would never realize that fact in reading the pseudo-analysis of the...

  • U.S. Debt-Default: Then What?

    204 Reads | 0 Comments | October 11, 2013

    In my commentary earlier this week; readers were presented with the latest/newest “clue” from the Corporate Media as to where the staged shut-down of the U.S. government (via its Debt-Ceiling Farce) is leading the U.S. economy – and the global economy as a whole. Here the mainstream media was succinct and direct (for a change): A U.S. Default Seen as Catastrophe Dwarfing...

  • U.S. Shut-Down An Excuse For Debt-Default?

    150 Reads | 0 Comments | October 11, 2013

    A question being asked more frequently than ever by informed readers is “what happens next?” This is understandable, and not a reflection of these individuals becoming either more curious or simply more obtuse. Rather, our fraud-saturated, non-transparent economies (and markets) have grown still more opaque. This is primarily accomplished by the ever-increasing falsification of...

  • U.S. Extend-and-Pretend: the Zombie lives!

    108 Reads | 0 Comments | September 30, 2013

    Most readers are familiar with the market vernacular “extend and pretend.” It’s origins are the U.S.  commercial debt market. This is yet another U.S. Ponzi-scheme and debt-bubble being kept alive solely through pretending that most/all of the massive amounts of bad-debt in this market is still viable. It’s a game (and a massive fraud/sham) because if these...
