What Will Happen to You When the Dollar Collapses?

What Will Happen to You When the Dollar Collapses?

By Jeff Thomas

Historically, when a nation’s debt exceeds its ability to repay even the interest, it can be assumed that the currency will collapse. Typically, governments exacerbate the situation by printing large amounts of currency notes in an effort to inflate the problem away, or at least postpone it.

The greater the level of debt, the more dramatic the inflation must be to counter it. The more dramatic the inflation, the greater the danger that hyperinflation will take place. No government has ever been able to control hyperinflation. If it occurs, it does so quickly and always ends with a crash.

No Such Thing As a Sure Thing—But Sometimes It’s Close

No Such Thing As a Sure Thing--But Sometimes It’s Close

By Louis James

In the investment world, there’s no such thing as a sure thing, and if anyone tells you they have such an investment, you should run the other way. Fast. But sometimes, the odds are so clearly stacked in one direction that it comes pretty close.

How can one be so sure? Due diligence, of course; the devil is in the details—and so is the profit.

It’s impossible to illustrate this without tooting my own horn a bit, so please bear with me on that. The point of the story is critical to investments in all sectors and should help you with your own.

My sector—my specialty—is mining. I’ve been kicking rocks around the world for more than a decade now, learning geology and engineering and metallurgy from world-class experts in their fields. But the point is to make money, not just to figure out nature’s geological puzzles, so I’ve also immersed myself in the world of legendary investors,

Unsound Banking: Why Most of the World’s Banks Are Headed for Collapse

Unsound Banking: Why Most of the World's Banks Are Headed for Collapse

By Doug Casey

You’re likely thinking that a discussion of “sound banking” will be a bit boring. Well, banking should be boring. And we’re sure officials at central banks all over the world today—many of whom have trouble sleeping—wish it were.

This brief article will explain why the world’s banking system is unsound, and what differentiates a sound from an unsound bank. I suspect not one person in 1,000 actually understands the difference. As a result,

QUESTION: Marty; you probably do not remember me but I too lived in London two doors down from you in Cornwall Gardens. I watched your Solution Conference. It took a few days to sink in yet it was terribly enlightening. I believe you could really help Britain.

The British May 7th Election – Prelude to 2016?

Posted on April 19, 2015 by 

The British elections are coming up on May 7th. I will be across the pond for that event. This is the tightest election without any clear winner since 1992. UKIP now has about 15% and the Liberals as well as the Greens are below 10% rapidly becoming a waste of voting rights.

Draghi Tells Euro Shorts To "Make His Day", Again

With a “defiant” Syriza determined to hold onto any shred of dignity and legitimacy that may remain in the wake of months of painful negotiations with its creditors and with a €5 billion advance from Russia (a large chunk of which will promptly be paid to the IMF which use it to bailout Ukraine which will hand it right back to Russia) shaping up to be the last lifeline for Greece before Athens is reduced to issuing IOUs to pay pensions and salaries, the focus is beginning to shift away from Grexit and towards contagion risk.

IF QE IS SO GREAT…WHY STOP PRINTING NOW?

Chair Yellen frequently reminds us how effective and innovative
QE is as a monetary policy tool. She even referred to the monetary
actions, of her former boss, as heroic at a commencement speech
this past spring. Literally…QE has saved the financial world. We
must thank Mr. Bernanke and Ms. Yellen for being so Ivy League and
Beltway intelligent.

And, also, how generous of them to

It Takes a Different Breed to Be Contrarian

It Takes a Different Breed to Be Contrarian

By Justin Spittler

The most memorable scene in the film adaptation of Glengarry Glen Ross is when Alec Baldwin’s character—a hotshot real estate broker from the prestigious Mitch and Murray agency—tells a group of struggling real estate agents that it takes “brass balls to sell real estate.” There’s probably some truth to that, but it takes bigger cojones to buy what everyone else hates.

Jim Rodgers, Warren Buffett, and our own Doug Casey all made fortunes by going against the crowd.
