    By on July 22, 2014 | No Comments  Comments
    Most people learn by the age of 10 or so that making promises is easier than keeping them.

    Last Thursday was the kind of day that precious metals investors have been waiting (and waiting and waiting) for.

    For all those analysts (including this one) who thought the debt binge of the previous decade marked end of the Age of Leverage, well, not so fast. It turns out that memories are short and government printing presses are powerful, and this combination has turned the “Great Deleveraging” into a m...

    By on May 23, 2014 | No Comments  Comments
    From Chapter 15 of The Money Bubble, by James Turk and John Rubino: Banking didn’t start out as a reckless, parasitical plaything of a moneyed and politically-connected aristocracy. In the beginning, in fact, bankers weren’t even bankers. They were jewelers and goldsmiths who had to maintain th...
  • Ink + Paper Doesn’t Equal Value

    My dad will turn 84 this year. When he was born, you could walk into a Federal Reserve Bank or the Treasury and redeem your paper money for gold.
