Do you believe there is manipulation going on with gold and crude oil

March 26, 2014

The reality is that something smells rotten with this "global economy," is there manipulation going on with the asset gold? Do you believe that the Feds have been controlling the price of gold, as well as crude oil?

How can a barrel of crude oil drop, but the gas at your local gas station never drops in price as of lately? Prices have been fixed for the past three weeks, as the barrel drops under the $100.00 US mark. The moment the barrel moves upwards, the gas stations do not hesitate to increase the price at the pumps.

Been following the nonlogical results from gold and crude oil, seems like it's a one-way street, certainly not for the average working stiff. Sorry l fall into that category, do you? Exactly my point, we are definitely not enjoying the start of hyperinflation created by the greed factor.

Going to Provide you with some facts.

Fact One: Who do we trust, with our money, certainly not our banking system. Banks have the ability to use a system most of us never figure out, called an algorithm system in which they increase your service charges by a little, each month. If you never complain they increase it again, just check your service banking fee's. Read More

Fact Two: There are many unexplained trends, on why gold has had such a rough ride. Some experts in this field have indicated that there is more going on than we actually will ever understand. Governments have always wanted a fiat currency, for the simple reason they can print more money. With Gold it is impossible to reproduce, could this be a key factor? Read More

Fact Three: Some of us will understand, the logical reasons that Nick Barisheff shares on his articles and speeches, that he has shared, with his audiences across the globe. Investments are sometimes manipulated, by certain parties, no need for finger pointing. Gold Manipulation creates greed, for the very greedy players, who could care less of who they have bankrupted, with investors retirements, and pension plans. Read More

What happens when Hyperinflation kicks in, FULL time?

Hyperinflation is happening actually, each time you buy something, hyperinflation is built into that price, so we are suffering at all levels. All one needs to do is recall what they paid for, when they bought their favorite item, as in food, drink along with bad habits, smoking, drinking, they have sharply risen in price. Due to transportation, crude oil kicks in, as a dominant factor now.

The two most powerful assets, work against each other, why is that? Worldwide Governments dominate the ability to control a fiat system that is worthless. As long as they can re-print money that has zero backing by any physical asset. Wicked and damaging concerns, if you're a human.

"OPEC" is in bed with the "Governments of the world," it is an item we all need and they have the resource to supply and control the demand. What a concept? Do you think there might be the odd, "pay off," to someone who has the ability to approve the scam?  Read More.

The End of America! There Will Be No Economic Recovery, Because!

How can you overcome issues, which have a need, and a demand for survival? America needs to increase borrowing to avoid defaulting on their debt, beyond September 30, 2013. This with a fiat currency; just is not really going to look, overly impressive.

Could Congress be heading towards a government shutdown?  With the Republican leaders in American House of Representatives refusal on President Barack Obama’s demand for additional printed money to run the government beyond the demand date of September 30, 2013, so it may perhaps avoid default.

How Government Propaganda Prevents Wealth Protection

March 20, 2014

Written By Nick Barisheff

Government economic propaganda is dangerous as anything contrived by Joseph Goebbels during his tenure as Minister of Propaganda for Nazi Germany. It prevents people from facing reality and realizing the inherent danger in the economy. It prevents them from protecting family's wealth through bullion ownership.

Since the passing of the Federal reserve Act in 1913, the US dollar lost 96% of its purchasing power against gold. On a true gold standard prior to 1913, the US dollar preserved purchasing power even though the country suffered through a civil was. A dollar in 1900 bought almost the exact amount of goods it would have bought in 1800.

As for the strengthening economy that both Fed Chair Yellen and every mainstream financial observer speaks about daily, statistics simply don't match this claim.

Manipulated statistics mislead the public. Alternative statistics, such as those provided by economists like Dr. John Williams of are far more accurate than skewed CPI unemployment reports issued by the government. Why? Because everyone who eats, drives or sends children to college knows that life is becoming more expensive by the day and far more difficult. Fed statistics defy common sense.

Investors need to move beyond "positive thinking," Ringer stated "Reality isn't the way you wish things to be, or the way they appear to be, but the way they actually are." His advice was to expect the best but prepare for the worst. This takes a lot of effort, and few people can adopt such an approach without practice.

The simple act of owning gold makes the work of awakening much easier, because it tends to expand our economic vision involuntarily. It provides a standard of lasting value that no longer exists with paper currencies. It allows us to see the insidious forces of inflation and currency debasement directly, rather than as an abstract economic concept.

Current Updates from my Favourite Experts, with this Asset!

March 13, 2014

Life at times has it's moments, for some unknown reasons things that should be simply explained, is not happening. Example, the recent flight of Malaysian airline that has been reported missing now for a few days... No concept, just propaganda of what might have happened, how can this be? Who do you really trust, anymore, do you ever ask yourself that?

Investing will always be a gamble, regardless of the stakes. You either were lead to this investment or you did it on your own. Now that you have accomplished this goal, what are your numbers providing you with as in an (ROI) return on investment? Only true language that is shared international, they all seem to understand what this all means.

So many people write about this stuff, it's like a dime a dozen, on the internet. But some understand this asset, why l decided to yes invest money, but, more importantly, dedicate my time, hard thing to buy back, if you ask me! Risk factors have always played a larger emotion with your direction. That is OK, you're not alone. But you "Need to Stop Doing What You Hate."

A lot of "hot money" has returned to this sector following double-bottom that concluded two months ago and, with commodity prices again last week and the trade-weighted dollar falling further, it could continue.

"When China first shipped her gold to the US, it was meant for reform, opening and removing US economic sanctions." This underlines the dirty game the US is playing. It demands countries store a part of their official gold reserves at the New York Fed, so ultimately only the US controls the global currency markets. At least 600 tons of Chines official reserves are stored with the Fed.

"Food inflation is far greater than the government thinks it is," said ConvergeEx market strategist Nick Colas. "The discount is severe because it's the economists that make policy but it's the people who have to live the outcome of that policy and that disconnect is growing to the point where l think it has to break soon."

What is the Gold Standard, How Will it Effect You're Retirement?

March 8, 2014

Have not written or updated the blog for a while now, actually was doing some research, think "You" will enjoy this article. Came across a gentleman's profile over on LinkedIn, read it, like what he was doing, since we both have a commanding interest. Going to share an article he posted, from a site we both follow. Had no idea it came from that site.

The article is the Gold Standard, how will it affect your retirement? We all need to understand what the true (ROI) will provide, god only number l really care about. Tells me all l need to know, how my investment is performing, need that information, you not agree?

Here is the Story on this subject, enjoy it, as much as l have.

The gold standard is often mentioned but rarely explained. However, it's a fairly easy concept to understand.

Put simply, it is a monetary system under which economic unit of account is based on a fixed quantity of gold. That means paper currency notes are convertible directly into specific quantities of gold.

Looking a little deeper, there are 'Three Types of Gold Standard." Those are:

Gold Specie Standard: A unit of money is tied to the value of circulating gold coins or has the value of a particular gold coin in circulation. Other coins that are less valuable may also be in use. Gold bullion standard: Authorities agree to sell, for a fixed price, gold bullion on demand in exchange for currency. Gold coins are not circulated.

Gold Exchange Standard: A government that does not itself use gold species or bullion standards guarantees a fixed exchange rate between its own currency and that of another country that uses either of the gold standards. As the two currencies are tied, a gold standard is created for the country by default.

A Brief History of the Gold Standard

The gold special standard was the first gold standard system. It arose naturally due to the fact the millennial ego, several different economies in Asia started accepting gold as a currency.

Since then, different gold currencies have enjoyed of a monopoly. For example, the Middle Ages Shaw the Byzantine solidus, known as the bezant, used throughout Europe. Similarly, in 1704, the British West Indies began using gold species, Britain used a gold standard.

Canada adopted the standard in 1853, and the United States and Germany followed in 1873, the Congressional Research Service States.

Finally, however, the gold standard's popularity to wane. The Gold species standard ended in the British Empire after World War One broke out, and by 1976, the international monetary system was based purely on the fiat currency. That means that while gold retains its value as an asset, no currencies are tied directly to its value.

The "Gold Standard's" possible future

That said, efforts to back the gold standard are occurring in a variety of places.

Writing for the "Wall Street Journal," James Grant posits that pure fiat currency may not be the best system available. He "Notes.." the pure paper dollar is a contrivance only 38 years old, brand new, really, and the experiment may yet come naughty. Indeed, History and Mathematics agree that it will certainly come to naught. Paper currencies are wasting assets. In time, the lose all their value.

Grant also comment that the end of Gold Standard in the US inadvertently led to more risks being taken on Wall Street, increased borrowing and serious inflation.

Politically, some form of the gold standard has a strong appeal to niche groups. In the US, that mostly means libertarians and others who believe in minimal governments intervention in monetary policy. However, the idea gained more widespread approval when May 2011 Utah adopted a policy that saw gold and silver coins minted by the US Government made legal tender in the State.

While, as National Interest points out, implementing such a policy is a bit difficult ---- the idea of buying a cup of coffee with a $50 American Eagle coin more than $1,000 at a market price is a mathematical headache --- it indicates how popular the gold standard is to some. Other states have proposed that taxes be paid in gold and silver or that state debt is paid using metals.

Most recently, Canadian Financier Ned Goodman sad at this year's PADC Conference, "the fact is, if we return to a classical gold standard and get rid of the Federal Reserve being who we are, we will have a good time in the commodity market."
