During the British election of 2017, Theresa May famously said “there is no magic money tree.” But both the Federal Reserve and the […]

November 29, 2019 | The Myth of the Service Economy—And Why It Matters

Imagine what it was like back in the days of prehistoric hunter-gatherer cultures. Most economic activity—by far—would be subsistence production at the family level. What internal and external trade there might be would be almost entirely barter of surplus production. You smoke more mammoth meat than you need, you can trade it for spearheads from […]

November 28, 2019 | Gold/Silver Prices Must Be Suppressed! Let’s Explore, Why?

The sentiment for any constitutional money or historical money must be suppressed by our official policymakers as it’s important that our markets transition to a virtual/digital system. The last thing that our official policymakers want is a lack of confidence in the virtual monetary system which is being created for the world.

November 28, 2019 | The Sure Thing

  The big blue bank pays 1% on its high-interest savings account. That’s half the inflation rate. Fail. But RBC will pony up a 2.5% yield for the first 90 days. Meanwhile Laurentian Bank has rattled the market with a HISA delivering 3.3% – bizarre, since that’s almost a third point higher than the rate […]

November 27, 2019 | Understanding ‘Nature’ of Three Types of ‘Dollar’s’!

The word ‘dollar’ does not have a single definition. The word has been defined differently since its inception after 1792. The original dollar was ‘defined’ as 371.25 grains of pure silver.

QUESTION: Hello! More and more people in western Europe are talking about the coming civil war between the Muslims/Arabs and the Europeans. Guillaume Faye has even written a book about it.
