An Economist Rebukes The Economist

When government uses force to interfere in markets, it promises improved outcomes. However, the opposite inevitably occurs.

Alarming Developments in GLD ETF Reaffirm Need to Own PHYSICAL Gold

The world’s largest gold exchange traded fund (ETF) seems to be having a lot of trouble when it comes to accounting.

A Run On Gold And Silver Is Starting

But don’t mistake buying GLD and SLV for buying and self-safekeeping physical gold and silver. The integrity of GLD and SLV is highly questionable.

It’s Not Often I Get to Proclaim “THE FED IS DEAD” Then Watch the Fed Put on the Toe Tag!

Be vigilant for inflation because big shifts into money’s most liquid form can create huge inflation IF we wind up with too much money in the hands of actual consumers or business operating accounts chasing too few goods. The cash is there, but where is there? I’m still looking for it.

Survival of the Biggest

In its purest form, capitalism is an evolutionary process. Businesses that best adapt to changing conditions survive and grow. Typically, that means offering a product or service superior to current ones, or giving consumers more choices. Weaker or poorly managed businesses that don’t adapt to the new situation wither and eventually die.
