  • The majority is never right. Never, I tell you! That’s one of these lies in society that no free and intelligent man can ever help rebelling against. Who are the people that make up the biggest proportion of the population — the intelligent ones or the fools? I think we can agree it’s the fools, no matter where you go in this world, it’s the fools that form the overwhelming majority - Henrik Ibsen.

  • The mainstream (corporate) media is nothing less than the unofficial accomplice of the banking crime syndicate which is running/ruining our markets and economies. Nowhere is this despicable relationship more apparent than in its deliberate efforts to grossly misinform investors on the critical subject of risk.

    Jeff Nielsen

  • The business of investing rationally becomes problematic when market participants are pursuing maximum nominal returns without a second thought as to the real (inflation-adjusted) value of those returns and the location of the savings.

  • Comparing the currencies is like picking the prettiest horse in the glue factory. The history of all fiat currencies shows they all end up being valueless. Gold’s nobody else’s liability and it has no counterparty risk. It’s provided protection against destruction of wealth for centuries and we’re at the cusp of another major chapter in its illustrious history.

The 2012 New Great Depression

The great depression was produced by government mismanagement rather than by any instability of the private economy" M. Friedman

protest The original idea of having a central bank was to secure stability by ensuring politicians kept their hands out of the pockets of the Treasury. The reality is different. Over the past decennia politicians have tried to avoid recession at all costs by increasing the money supply through the creation of debt, which in turn serves as a reserve for (Central)banks. Now that the debt has become a bubble it becomes impossible for the economy to honor it and a natural process of debt destruction has been initiated. Greece and Lehman Bros are two excellent examples.

It is the accumulated interest expenditure which will in the end bring the system down as the only way to bring down interest expenditures is to redeem the debt. Any other popular measures like cutting spending, raising taxes, save on energy only result in a further reduction of economic activity and this in turn results in yet another reduction of tax revenues making it the Authorities even harder to pay for the interest on its debt.

As a result of the economic decline, unemployment is on the rise and people start to riot...Bankers and Politicians must at a certain point fear for their lives (Argentina).

Destruction of debt equals destruction of Money and less money chasing a same amount of goods result in lower nominal prices for Investment instruments. Most dangerous however are Treasuries (which will end worthless) and ANY investment instrument which is guaranteed by Treasuries: life insurances, pension funds, bank deposits, saving accounts, bank shares, structured products, derivatives, e.o.

Add $ 1.4 quadrillion derivatives (uncontrolled, bank manufactured and bank controlled investment instruments) and we have a financial atomic bomb. Most people don't even realize they hold directly or indirectly these kinds of investment instrument as these are usually sold as ZERO risk paper. Remember it was Derivatives which brought down Greece in the 1st place.

This poisonous cocktail will cause a lot of harm and when it all blows up there will be those who loose it all and those who loose part. Important is to be OUT of anything which appears to be safe like: Treasuries, bank deposits, zero-risk bond and stock funds, money market funds, TAK-instruments, life insurances, financial stocks, ....and to hold Real Money as well as certain well defined Real Assets (Real Estate is a HOCG and won't do unless you buy it cheap at the bottom of the market).

Dramatic is that Authorities are because of their acts punishing the very ones who have been working and saving their whole life: pensioners and savers.

Europe has a serious additional problem: society has for decennia been poisoned and brainwashed by socialism. Society is over-regulated and for this reason any natural adjustment becomes extremely difficult. If the mentality of the people doesn't change we may well end up with a remake of the Dark Ages of Europe when India became the Financial Capital of the world.

Last but not least it becomes imperative to store your savings in NON-BANK VAULTS OUT of POLITICAL reach as the Authorities will increasingly vote new legislations in place in order to TAX away as much as possible. This exercise is as important as investing properly.

Note: Money is a natural derivative of Treasury Bonds and the 1st paper money was interest bearing.

October 6, 2011 Francis D. Schutte
