WEIMAR: First DEFLATION Then INFLATION

Today, the entire global economy is deflating. Industrial demand and manufacturing are collapsing worldwide. Once economic deflation is underway, debt snowballs.

GOLD IS A PRUDENT INVESTMENT.

All great civilizations have conducted trade with silver and gold (until the societies declined). A distinguished professor at the University of California at Berkeley re-discovered why gold has always played a central monetary role, and why the rare metal has never been a ‘consumption good.’ After years of ground-breaking research, the late Professor Roy Jastram uncovered the […]

America’s Fundamental Transformation

The current economic down-turn is not a recession. A worldwide depression is unfolding. This deflationary catastrophe will not resemble the Great Depression. Why not?

The U.S.A. does not resemble the America of the 1930s when our nation had trade surpluses and the dollar was gold-backed.

During the coming economic upheaval, gold and silver will perform as “monetary metals” and the world’s only real […]
