The Shemitah: The Biblical Pattern Which Indicates That A Financial Collapse May Be Coming In 2015

Does a mystery that is 3,500 years old hold the key to what is going to happen to global financial markets in 2015?  Could it be possible that the timing of major financial crashes is not just a matter of coincidence?  In previous articles on my website, I have discussed some of the major economic


This Is What A Real-Life Economic Collapse Looks Like

Did you ever think about what your life would be like if the stores were closed? I’m not talking about a post-apocalyptic Mad Max scenario or a winter storm that clears the shelves. I’m talking about a long-term disruption of services caused by an economic collapse. What if you couldn’t run to Wal-Mart to get


Davos Elites Enjoys The Global Depression

When Klaus Schwab, founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum started the yearly pilgrimage to the inner sanctums of the Swiss Gnomes, he could hardly conceive that the ritual would turn into a celebrity bash of the super rich. The Davos venue is appropriate. Only rarified air is suitable for the global Mattoids. Billed


Failing Stimulus And The IMF's New 'Multilateral' World Order

My theme for 2015 has been the assertion that this will be a year of shattered illusions; social, political, as well as economic. As I have noted in recent articles, 2014 set the stage for multiple engineered conflicts, including the false conflict between Eastern and Western financial and political powers, as well as the growing


Gold And Silver – Around The FX World In Charts

By: Edge Trader Plus - There has been some discussion about how the Swiss National Bank breakaway from the 1.20 peg to the Euro was a shot to the upside for gold.  It appeared to us that the rally may have been sparked a few days ahead of the announcement, and last week’s mostly sideways


Gold And Silver – Timing Is Most Important Element

By: Edge Trader Plus - “Excuse me, sir, do you have the time?” In a Clinton-esque response:  “It depends on what the definition of “time” is.” Throughout much of 2013 and all of 2014, there were numerous stories/reports out on what would have to be considered as very bullish prospects for the prices of gold


27 Facts That Show How The Middle Class Has Fared Under 6 Years Of Barack Obama

During his State of the Union speech on Tuesday evening, Barack Obama promised to make life better for middle class families.  Of course he has also promised to do this during all of his other State of the Union addresses, but apparently he still believes that there are people out there that are buying what


Swiss Shocker Triggers Gigantic Losses For Banks, Hedge Funds And Currency Traders

The absolutely stunning decision by the Swiss National Bank to decouple from the euro has triggered billions of dollars worth of losses all over the globe.  Citigroup and Deutsche Bank both say that their losses were somewhere in the neighborhood of 150 million dollars, a major hedge fund that had 830 million dollars in assets


More Indicators Of An Economic Collapse

The American economy is already in grave danger as we consider that there are 35 states in this country in which it is better to accept welfare than work at an entry level job. Much like crack cocaine or heroin addicts, much of our nation is hopelessly addicted to living in the welfare state or on


Gold And Silver – Swiss National Bank Rally. Enough For A Change?

By: Edge Trader Plus - It would seem that last week’s rally in gold was Swiss National Bank-driven, plain and simple.  It is difficult to get a handle on the ramifications of what just happened with the Swiss “unpegging” from the Euro.  It was becoming prohibitively expensive for the SNB to keep buying Euros and

Carl Menger And The Real Bills Doctrine

In the Daily Bell’s recent interview, Dr. Antal Fekete: Blowing Up Modern Austrian Economics ... in a Good Way, Professor Antal E. Fekete addresses the foundational economic work and understanding of “Real Bill” money by Carl Menger. Reviewing this subject, may be a new experience for most and for mainline economists a topic that is problematic. How


Boom Goes The Dynamite: The Crashing Price Of Oil Is Going To Rip The Global Economy To Shreds

If you were waiting for a “black swan event” to come along and devastate the global economy, you don’t have to wait any longer.  As I write this, the price of U.S. oil is sitting at $45.76 a barrel.  It has fallen by more than 60 dollars a barrel since June.  There is only one


If You Watch Television, You Could Die!

The collapse of the American economy has begun in earnest despite the fact that the American people are being propagandized in earnest that economic recovery is right around corner. Right around corner? Just like reinforcements for General Custer’s forces were right around the corner? And the American economy is poised to suffer the same fate


FEMA Camps Will Soon Outnumber Banks

In life, how many times have we seen that two similar men face a set of similar circumstances only to witness two entirely different outcomes? One man meets the challenges, grows stronger and more successful as a result. The other man ignores the crisis at first, hoping that it will go away. When the denials
