The Death of the U.S. Dollar and the Collapse of all other Fiat Currencies

IMF’s Christine Lagarde

As we predicted months ago, the IMF officially green-lighted the acceptance of China’s currency – the Yuan – into the IMF’s foreign exchange basket.
According to Reuters, this move paves the way for the IMF to place the yuan on a par with the U.S. dollar. This is the latest in a series of global developments that threatens to eliminate the U.S. dollar as the world’s reserve currency. Experts predict this announcement will trigger one of the most profound transfers of wealth in our lifetime. So if you want to protect your savings & retirement, you better get your money out of U.S. dollar investments and into the one asset class that rises as currencies collapse.

The IMF Holds Supreme Power

The International Monetary Fund, or IMF, is one of the most secret...


The True Reason behind The 40-Hour Work Week and Why We Are Economic Slaves

What is the true reason behind the 40-hour work week?

Economic slavery, or wage slavery, refers to one’s total and immediate dependence on wages to survive.

Although people throughout history have had to work to get by, we now live in a culture where we are led to believe we have economic freedom, when unbeknownst to most citizens, we are in fact bound in servitude. We automatically accept a 40-hour workweek with meager hourly pay as normal, even though many work overtime and still struggle to survive. There are also those who make enough to live comfortably but are unable to request less hours—you either work 40 hours a week, or you don’t get to work at all...


Cash, Bail-ins and Banks insolvency

When Cyprus banks were about to go belly up a couple of years ago, they saved themselves by raiding customers’ accounts, which is more palatably described as a bail-in.

The reaction of global savers to this action by the Cyprus banks was one of horror and revulsion – and they made it plain that they weren’t going to stand idly by and watch banks plunder their funds. They would withdraw them as cash if any such threat should appear over the horizon. This reaction set the great minds of the banking community to work on how to stop savers withdrawing their funds in the face of these threats. The solution was and is simple – abolish cash!

The solution was and is simple – abolish cash!

Thus we have seen production of the 500 Euro note in the European Union stopped…so that it gradually ...

The Silver Story


‘X’ Marks the Spot Where Inequality Took Root

In 2002, I heard an economist characterizing this figure as containing a valuable economic insight. He wasn’t sure what the insight was. I have my own answer.

The economist talked of the figure as a sort of treasure map, which would lead us to the insight. “X” marks the spot. Dig here.

The graphic below tells three stories.

First, we see two distinct historic periods since World War II. In the first period, workers shared the gains from productivity. In the later period, a generation of workers gained little, even as productivity continued to rise.

Figure 1: The X marks the spot where something happened.

Figure 1: The ‘X’ marks the spot where something happened in the mid-1970’s.

The second message is the very abrupt transition from the post-war historic period to the current one...

Abdul Halim al-Attar is a Syrian refugee who was selling pens in the streets of Beirut in order to make a living for his children

But once a photo of Abdul selling his pens while holding his daughter hit the Internet, it went big-time viral. The picture featured his daughter Reem sleeping on his shoulder as he tried to market his pens to passerbys in the scorching heat. It touched people’s hearts across the globe.

Don’t Dismiss The EU Investigation Into Alleged Gold And Silver Price Fixing | Gold Eagle

Goldbugs are bemused by reports that the European Union competition watchdog is investigating alleged ‘anti-competitive behavior’ by participants in the precious metals market. But anybody who remembers how the EU broke up the cement cartel a couple of decades ago will know that this is a watchdog that has very powerful teeth. It’s fines can bankrupt even very large companies or banks.

Prior evidence

True the goldbugs have watched and waited in the past when various investigations into alleged precious metal price fixing have been launched in the US, UK and Germany. These investigations have quietly concluded that nothing was wrong, despite some very convincing evidence from market watchers and industry experts.

The general view in the gold community is that the central banks themsel...


How To Break Free From Materialism In 3 Distinct Ways

Our society is currently enslaved by a 9-5 alarm clock lifestyle. Pieces of paper control our every move. From the moment we are born, we are indoctrinated by our parents, our school system, the media to think that success is defined by material gain.

Happiness, contentment and relationships are secondary to income. Because our culture values material success the most, we currently live in a world that is enslaved to the dollar.

Slavery is when your work is no longer an opportunity for economic advancement but is instead an act of mere self-preservation.

Most people are owned by their material pursuits, and spend their entire lives trying to pay off debt they earned from purchases and bills that have piled up over the years.

If you are reading this, there is a good chance you work a 9-5 jo...


Scuba Divers Discover Buried Treasure


Amateur scuba divers have found an enormous cache of gold coins off the Israeli coast

It’s an age-old plot device from a scuba diving-related story: amateur divers accidentally stumble across treasure on the bottom of the ocean while out diving, and drama ensues. But of course, that sort of thing wouldn’t happen in real life — or would it?

Amateur divers discovered nearly 2,000 gold coins near Caesarea off of Israel’s Mediterranean coast

There may not be any dramatic boat chases or seedy black-market bosses, but life did imitate art this week when a group of amateur divers discovered nearly 2,000 gold coins near Caesarea off of Israel’s Mediterranean coast.

The coins are estimated to date back some 900 years, from the time of the Fatimid Caliphate...
