The ‘Perils’ of a Gold Standard?

A gold standard does not “cause” depressions (governments do). However, at the same time, a gold standard is also not a magical, economic panacea. Specifically, imposing the fiscal discipline inherent in a gold standard will not lead to a good economic outcome in the hands of a corrupt government (i.e. one which governs for the benefit of the privileged few as opposed to the majority).

Don’t Blame The Millionaires

There is no reason for the media to be blaming “millionaires” for wealth inequality. Yes, they too have benefited from the lowest tax rates in history for those on top. However, there is a huge conceptual difference between the millionaires (or even billionaires) and the trillionaires.

Confessions of a Liquidity Junkie

…in the anti-rational world of the addict simply feeding the addiction is itself the sole “goal”. This epitomizes the words and actions of not only Mervyn King, but also Federal Reserve Chairman B.S. Bernanke and the dozens of other liquidity-junkies which have infested Europe’s monetary system.

The Two Sides of Precious Metals Propaganda

Propaganda is a form of control. To maximize that “control” it is just as important to dominate the bullish commentary on precious metals as it is to “lead the choir” on the bearish side.
