Ted Butler: "The Next Silver Run To $50 (And Beyond)"

Prior to the price run up in 2011, I wrote that a move to $50 was possible. Something that has happened twice before can certainly occur again."

What Makes the Gold Standard so Powerful is Exactly Why Politicians Hate It so Much

The gold standard holds one enormous advantage over any proposed 'fedcoin' or potential central-government-issued crypto.

Trump Seeks to End Quarterly Earnings Reporting, Move to Six-Month System

Public companies have long been forced to focus largely on super-short-term results, largely due to the fact that they have to announce those results to stock-price-vigilant shareholders every 90 days or so.

Venezuela Drops 5 Zeros From All Prices; Changes Color, Denomination of Currency

When your national currency borders on worthless and you're firmly in the death-spiral phase of terminal inflation, no amount of sovereign sleight of hand can change that.
