  • Zombie Founding Fathers Warn of Dollar Crash

    This Halloween, University of Kansas Young Americans for Liberty invaded campus as rotting corpses and creepy ghouls to illustrate a similarly ailing dollar.  They were assisted by a zombie horde of founding fathers and Death himself who stalked the Graveyard of Fiat Currencies.  The Zimbabwe dollar, Yugoslav Dinar, and the German Mark were represented on …

  • The Dollar’s Dramatic Decline

    Remember back in the good old days when the dollar was king? It was that strong, green piece of paper that the world used for its commerce. It was dependable, and it was backed by the full faith and credit of the United States government, something that everybody believed would ensure monetary supremacy for the …

  • Gold Hits Record High as US Heads Closer to Default

    With a week to go before the debt ceiling deadline is hit, investors and traders are getting their emergency disaster kits ready for the potential of a U.S. credit downgrade, and they’re filling those kits with gold and silver, rather than U.S. Treasury bonds. After talks of a deal were delayed once more, gold rose …

  • Gold, Silver End 10-Day Rally, Longest in 21 Years

    Gold prices have dropped today after a 10-day rally drove the price up to over $1600 an ounce.

This rally represents the growing discontent over …

  • Schiff Destroys Krugman

    Usually Peter Schiff rambles in his video blogs, but in this one he says so much and utterly destroys Paul Krugman (not that its too hard). Its unfortunate that even though Peter Schiff is consistently right about stocks and economic policy, he is still ignored.

  • How long have we been saying it?

    Gold hit $1,100 an ounce today. Too bad its at the expense of our dollar… “The U.S. dollar is certainly the main trigger today,” said Suki Cooper, a precious-metals analyst at Barclays Capital. Yet “there’s a cocktail of factors, ranging from dollar weakening to news last week that Asian central banks are buying gold.”

  • Candlelight vigil to be held for declining US dollar

    YAL at Indiana University will be holding a candlelight vigil for the declining US dollar, reports CampusReform.org Field Rep Craig Dixon: The Federal Reserve Note (FRN), established in 1913 by a private, central-banking cartel, has been in slow decline over the course of its life span, losing around 98% of its original value. The FRN …

  • Gold, Gold, Gold, and more Gold.

    Wow. It is simply amazing to see all those gold predictions that we’ve been listening about by people like Peter Schiff and Jim Rogers come true. It just reaffirms my faith in our cause… “The Fed reiterated the fact that they’ll keep interest rates low to stimulate growth, which will ultimately lead to a weaker …

  • Dollar loses reserve status to yen & euro

    From the NY Post: Ben Bernanke’s dollar crisis went into a wider mode yesterday as the greenback was shockingly upstaged by the euro and yen, both of which can lay claim to the world title as the currency favored by central banks as their reserve currency…. Bernanke could go down in economic history as the …

  • The Dollar, Gold, and Oil

    Although the original article has been publicly discredited by figures such as Saudi Central Bank Governor Muhammad al-Jassar and Japanese Finance Minister Hirohisa Fujiich, I find it worthwhile to discuss the claims that were made and the responses to those claims. Supposedly, “secret meetings have already been held by finance ministers and central bank governors …
