Gold as a means of accounting

If you’ve paid any attention to the inflation vs. deflation debate you’ve noticed that it is fairly convoluted. I’ve read the arguments in great detail and have come to the conclusion that it’s mostly a problem of semantics. Strictly speaking, deflation is a decrease in the supply of money and credit. As bad loans are written off, the supply of credit, which represents the lion’s share of the money supply, decreases.

Gold is a port in the debt storm

Clearly a reckless Federal government is good for gold – or more accurately, our collective can kickers in Washington DC are very bad for the dollar.  Contrary to the disinformation campaign of Wall Street, and their Federal Reserve sponsored economists, gold is not a bubble. Central banks are now net buyers of gold, and not because of tradition, as Mr. Bernanke would have you believe.

Another Great Depression already here?

Perhaps the most prevalent mental images of the Great Depression of the 1930s are the photos of the soup lines and breadlines where the “down and out,” those with absolutely no hope, stood waiting meals. Today, however, soup lines are a thing of the past, and they will not be evidence of just how bad the economy is.

Democrats becoming “Blue Republicans” to support Ron Paul in 2012

Perhaps you’ve seen the stories this week about the $6.6 billion in one hundred dollar bills that the US Government managed to “lose” in Iraq back in 2003-4. Apparently, as part of the Iraqi reconstruction effort, plane loads (C-130 Hercules to be exact) of palettes containing shrink wrapped 100 dollar bills were flown in. $22 billion in all. As the Pentagon is attempting to close the books on the operation this week, it was revealed that some $6.6 billion cannot be accounted for.

Ron Paul has written another bestseller

This book threatens to blow up “. . .all existing political conventions: Democrat and Republican, left and right, liberal and conservative. It makes new arguments and uses new terms. Most of all, it is offers a view of the political, economic, and social order that is hardly ever heard today,” says Lew Rockwell. The book

Bill Haynes interviewed by Phoenix Fox 10 News

For years the airwaves have been full of telemarketer ads that proclaim the virtues of investing in gold.  And, because of gold’s performance over the last ten years and because of the ongoing global financial crisis and because the ads continue to run daily in huge numbers, it is logical to conclude that the telemarketers’
