2017: The Year When the World Economy Starts Coming Apart

Some people would argue that 2016 was the year that the world economy started to come apart, with the passage of Brexit and the election of Donald Trump.

[1] Many economies have collapsed in the past. The world economy is very close to the turning point where collapse starts in earnest.

This One Chart Should Drive Investors Into Buying Gold & Silver

The U.S. financial system is in serious trouble and this one chart confirms it.  Investors who understand the negative consequences of this chart would be buying physical gold and silver hand over fist.  Unfortunately, Americans have been put to sleep by the Mainstream media as they continue to report that “business as usual forever and everything will be okay.” However, the opposite is the case as the U.S. economy and the financial system continue to disintegrate under the forces of massive debt, zero interest rates and a collapsing energy industry.  This is not a situation that will continue for many …

GOLD & DEBT: The 1929 Great Depression vs The Next Great Collapse

The situation Americans face in the future will be nothing like anything they have experienced in the past.  While we have seen old footage and heard stories about the Great Depression (starting in 1929), we have no idea how bad things really were during the 1930’s. At that time, approximately 25% of the American population were farmers.  Thus, when things really got bad, folks in the cities could move out and stay with their families or relatives on the country farm.  This is not an option for most Americans today as only 2% of the population are farmers and ranchers …

Turkish Turmoil: Let The Politics Begin

A month on from Turkey’s failed coup attempt, and you’ll find endless op-eds opining the supposed strategic implications of Erdogan’s rear-guard offensives. In a nutshell, it breaks down into four key arguments… The first is that Erdogan will oversee a ‘brutal crackdown’ to consolidate power wherever and whenever possible out to 2019 against any form of political opposition (Gulenist or not). The net result supposedly secures Erdogan’s tenure towards 2023 ‘Ataturk’ landmarks, and beyond. The second facet is that Mr. Erdogan will continue to inflict collateral Kurdish damage to secure internal gains along the way. PKK-Ankara relations basically go back …

We will know that day is approaching when oil-producing countries demand gold, or its equivalent, for their oil rather than dollars or euros.
