    Venezuelans turn to Bitcoin to escape currency crisis
    By now, most Americans are familiar with the economic basket case that is Venezuela. The country’s economy has collapsed, leaving the population desperate and starving. The human cost is highly visible and tragic, but what gets less attention is the way in which the government has destroyed the country’s currency, thereby making it impossible for citizens to buy basic necessities...

  3. Central Bankers 'Are' The Crisis

    Central Bankers 'Are' The Crisis
    If there’s one myth - and there are many - that we should invalidate in the cross-over world of politics and economics,it‘s that central banks have saved us from a financial crisis. It’s a carefully construed myth, but it’s as false as can be. Our central banks have caused our financial crises, not saved us from them. It really should -but doesn’t...

    The Wealthy Are Buying Multi-Million Dollar Bunkers With "Highest Level Of Military Grade Security"
    After Donald Trump was elected president, a lot of the fears and concerns that were once so common among conservatives and libertarians, seemed to fade. That state of relief was proven to be temporary, but fears of financial collapse and social disintegration still aren’t as prevalent now as they used to be. A lot of people have let their guard down...

    Janet Yellen Says A New Financial Crisis Probably Won’t Happen ‘In Our Lifetimes’ But The BIS Says One Could Soon Hit ‘With A Vengeance’
    Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen is quite convinced that the United States will not experience another financial crisis for a very long time to come.  In fact, she is publicly saying that she does not believe that another one will happen “in our lifetimes”.  But there are other central bankers that see things very differently.  In fact, a new report...
  6. Why Asia's financial crisis still has resonance: Michael Schuman

    Why Asia's financial crisis still has resonance: Michael Schuman
    (June 16): Kim Dae-jung, the former president of South Korea, once told me a story that perfectly captures the spirit of reform that followed the 1997 Asian financial crisis. He was on an official trip to Vietnam when a panicked visitor from Seoul sought an audience. It was Kim Woo-choong, the flamboyant founder of Daewoo Group, then Korea's second-largest business...

    An Empire Self-Destructs
    Empires are built through the creation or acquisition of wealth. The Roman Empire came about through the productivity of its people and its subsequent acquisition of wealth from those that it invaded. The Spanish Empire began with productivity and expanded through the use of its large armada of ships, looting the New World of its gold. The British Empire began through...

    Massive Government Preparations and Stockpiling Point to One Thing: "An Event Is Going to Happen"
    The question is subtly Malthusian in nature: how to deal with the world’s teeming billions in one fell swoop while maintaining the existing social and political orders in all of the countries?  That order needs only to have one facade now: as Draconian an order that can be accomplished without throwing the world into a revolution against every government in existence.  The Draconian nature...
  9. The Incredible Cost of Going Broke

    The Incredible Cost of Going Broke
    Puerto Rico’s road to financial freedom is cripplingly expensive. Already, as Bloomberg News reported Monday, the island has spent as much as $154 million to financial consultants and lawyers as it grapples with its unpayable $74 billion of debt. And that was incurred mostly before it filed for a bankruptcy-like restructuring in May. SURGING DEBT And that bill is going to rise substantially. It’s easy...

    Numbers Don't Matter in Hyperinflation - Welcome to A World of Broke Millionaires
    For decades citizenry has been fooled to participate in a paper scam (government fiat). It’s a ticking time bomb before the majority realizes that their currency (that they expend all their energy for) is a horrible store of value. We have seen plenty of examples in the recent past where a countries currency experiences a death spiral which eventually leads to hyperinflation where the...
