David Wind – Is It Safe Yet To Purchase A Home? … It Depends

from FinancialSurvivalNet

One of the most frequent questions you ask the Financial Survival Network is whether or not it’s time to purchase a home. Which, interestingly, is really a very complicated question. It depends upon your personal circumstances, your ability to service the debt and taxes, as well as your state’s tax rate, among other factors. One thing that is not in doubt, if you’re paying over 4 percent on your mortgage, it’s probably a great time to refinance and reinvest the savings and or cash out into precious metals. But these are questions for you, your financial advisor and your accountant. But you should be thinking about it now.

Chris Duane – The Real Story On The Chinese Purchase of the LME

from FinancialSurvivalNet

If you’ve heard Chris Duane’s analysis of current events unfolding around the world, you know that he’s had some startling insights that have proven amazingly accurate. The current acquisition of the LME (London Metals Exchange) by a Hong Kong group is simply a sign of the changing paradigm, Anglo-American to Asian. The elites as always can be found closeby to these goings on. They’re attempting to keep their power even as the balance of economic and military power shifts from West to East. How far this shift will be allowed to continue, or whether it can even be slowed or halted is the $100 trillion question. Right now the Elites have taken a beating and everything appears to be coming up China. But such trends can change in an instant, especially when you’re dealing with people who’ve been running the world for centuries.

Walter Williams – Government Can’t Always Give You What You Want

from FinancialSurvivalNet

Dr. Walter Williams has always been ahead of his time. A free market economist, PHD, leading advocate of personal responsibility, Dr. Williams has avoided stereotypes and has been an active voice for getting the government out of your life. He’s often been heard guest hosting for conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh, but he’s developed a large following of his own. And no wonder, he’s been fighting a multi-generational battle against ignorance and the belief that government can fix any problem, real or imagined. Dr. Williams has written a number of books, and you’ll regularly see his articles on Townhall.com, which is why we wanted to speak with him about the state of the economy and the ever dimming prospects for freedom.

We had a far ranging discussion about where the country and the world are heading and how history will look upon this era. Individual rights and freedoms are under attach now, as they have been throughout history. Whether we go further down the road to totalitarianism or again embrace our heritage of freedom, the final chapter has yet to be written.

Mickey Fulp & Jim Letourneau – Fracking Is Totally Misunderstood

from FinancialSurvivalNet

Two geologists and energy analysts with no axes to grind, no scores to settle, and no investments they’re hoping will payoff agree that Fracking is safe and necessary from an economic standpoint. In addition, fracking helps to fulfill the United States’ and the World’s unquenchable thirst for energy. The fact is the current administration has set rules that will help the process grow and continue to increase domestic energy production. While there may have been some negative results in the past, much of the rhetoric used by opponents of the technology is false and lacks any basis in scientific fact. While New York’s governor can’t quite comprehend these issues, the rest of the country is moving rapidly ahead in developing these much needed resources.

Greg Hunter – USA is a Kleptocracy

from FinancialSurvivalNet

Greg Hunter of USAWatchDog joined FSN for the first time yesterday. Greg is a former mainstream media news reporter who woke up one day and realized the USA was quickly becoming a kleptocracy. When he started interviewing truth tellers like John Williams (ShadowStats.com) and Jim Sinclair, his contract wasn’t renewed, in spite of his high ratings and popularity. So Greg Hunter did what so many of us are doing now; he started a blog and transferred his vast media experience to the Internet. Now he’s got thousands of viewers around the world. As that old show used to say, “The truth is out there.” Greg’s getting it out, the best he can, and so is the Financial Survival Network.

Tom Bevan’s Real Clear Politics – Obama, The UnderDog

from FinancialSurvivalNet

Tom Bevan of Real Clear Politics believes the election has shifted, and the Obama Team must now come from behind to win the re-election. The economic news has been uniformly wretched, Obama has been making gaffes by the boat load, and there’s not very much time to turn it all around. Blaming Bush for all of the world’s ills is not a recipe for success. So far, the Administration has not come up with a an optimistic vision of the future. And really, how can they? Europe is imploding, inflation is around the corner, and the populace is furious with the governing class. Perhaps this is one of those rare generational shifts that periodically occurs in the American political landscape. Or perhaps, it’s just another election where nothing much will really change, except now there’s no “hope for change.”

Alasdair Macleod – Quiet Bank Runs Taking Place in Europe Now

from FinancialSurvivalNet

Alasdair Macleod of the GoldMoney Foundation joined us for a discussion of the escalating bank runs now taking place in Europe. Confidence in Greek, Spanish and Italian banks is at an all time low. It is estimated that $1 billion per day is flowing out of these banks and into “safer” banks in Germany and Switzerland. Eventually currency controls will have to be implemented, but this may coincide with suspension of passport free travel throughout Europe. While Americans may sleep easily at night, believing their savings are insured by the FDIC and believing the Federal Government will never let the banks fail, Europeans aren’t under any such illusions. They’re seeking relative safety, rather than the promise of a return. Italy has reached the point where return of capital is far more important than return on capital.

John Butler Teaches CFA’s The Golden Rule

from FinancialSurvivalNet

John Bulter, author of The Golden Revolution, is catching on fast., and the international CFA institute has scheduled John to address a large group of Certified Financial Analysts. Seems main stream companies are starting to worry about the value of their currency holdings. What a surprise that is. At FSN we’ve been warning that the day was coming when large corporations who are sitting on trillions in cash, would start thinking about diversifying their holdings into precious metals. While there have been a number of companies, including Northwest Mutual Life, the University of Texas Endowment and others, there will soon be a tidal wave of large investors seeking the security of precious metals for their company’s cash hoards. John’s right there at the cutting edge.

Jeff Clark – Precious Metals Are Your Savings

from FinancialSurvivalNet

According to Jeff Clark precious metals mania is on the horizon in the not too distant future. On a long term basis, gold and silver are going to preserve your purchasing power where as cash is not. Since Y2K, the dollar has lost an incredible 26% of its purchasing power, and this trend is going to continue. Although gold has been flat since last September, its purchasing power is still stronger in the long run. Most people havent discovered precious metals yet, and we both agree silver is very undervalued right now. Precious metals should be viewed as your savings; gold and silver prices will go higher from current levels.

James Turk – It All Comes Down To A Golden Education

from FinancialSurvivalNet

James Turk of The GoldMoney Foundation joined us today to discuss the ever deteriorating European/Euro debacle. Greece is having its Grapes of Wrath-Steinbeck moment and as you would expect, their government is absolutely clueless about what can be done about it. But in emergencies, one thing we can all count on is that government will fail, and they will attempt to convince the populace they’re in control and solving the problem. Which is why James has started the GoldMoney Foundation: he wants to educate people about sound money and limited government. Right now, the audience for such ideas is narrow. However, with each progression on the road to economic collapse, the number of awakened individuals increases and the demand for gold and silver goes up as well. The problem is that most people will not get it until paper money has ceased to function. Hopefully, through all of our efforts, many people will be able to avoid this fate.

Danielle Park – Ready for Euphoria Trade

from FinancialSurvivalNet

The upcoming Greek election, along with Monday’s news of the $100 billion fix aka the Spanish bailout are at the forefront of global economic news. While they don’t want to call it a bailout, free money is being given, and Danielle says that the people that are trading this market are filled with blind hope. In the past few years, every federal bank intervention has come with big pops in risk assets that have lasted several months. While some people were able to harness this in a trade, most stayed too long and got knee-capped on the way out. It seems that in the past there has always been some hope that the next round of QE would cause markets to pop. But, today the euro bailout scenario is so short lived that no one can really participate in it. Don’t be fooled!

Charles Biderman – Gold & Silver For the Long Haul – Short Term Trends Aside

from FinancialSurvivalNet

Charles Biderman of TrimTabs.com has been selling research to hedge funds and other Wall Street groups for many years. Now he’s providing valuable information to individuals around the globe. While he’s been short term bearish on metals, Charles is an established trader who’s able to profit from these moves like most individuals cannot. His model portfolio is 25% gold and shorts on the Euro among other positions. Personally, I’m long on Rottweilers; these canine protectors are among the best, and if it all hits the fan, you’ll need effective protection for your home and family. Spreading out your holdings is also a wise move and should be considered. Global uncertainty is going to have affects upon every person in the world, whether you’re prepared or not. So better to be ready when the inevitable comes.

Peter Schiff – Returning From Washington, Disgusted As Usual

from FinancialSurvivalNet

Peter Schiff joined us again for a discussion of his latest book, The Real Crash. While much of what Peter predicted in his prior books has come to pass, the ultimate crash has yet to happen. And judging from his recent testimony at Congress, the elected representatives do not have a clue what’s going and what their previous policy blunders are causing. It is evident that they have absolutely no conception of economic realities and that every dollar the government spends is forcibly removed from the private sector, thereby decreasing economic activity and lowering incomes and taxes that eventually get paid. And because they are unwilling or unable to understand these effects, the crash gets closer and closer. How many people Peter will eventually be credited with saving is anyone’s guess, but he must be given credit for sounding the alarm bells earlier than just about anyone else.

John & Monica Miller – Your Money Might Be Safer In The Land Down Under

from FinancialSurvivalNet

John and Monica Miller, formerly of Hawaii and now residents of New Zealand, have written the book The Coming Banking Holiday, which should give any thinking American pause for thought and concern over his/her savings and his/her bank accounts. There have been many banking failures over the centuries, and while Americans have rarely lost their money in the bank collapses, there are no guarantees in life. The Millers believe that Australia offers some of the best financial conditions in the free world. The Country is debt-free and the wealth is staggering. It is a resource based economy that is still prospering. Therefore, before capital controls and retirement account seizure takes place, this is certainly a place that should be considered when trying to internationalize assets. And while they drive on the wrong side of the road, the weather is quite nice, and there are some incredible beaches and cities.

Joe Navarro – How To Read People Like A Book

from FinancialSurvivalNet

Former Special Agent Joe Navarro has worked on major criminal investigations, counter-terrorism operations, and consulted with world famous poker professionals on the science of reading non-verbal (body language) communications. I recently read his latest book, What Every BODY Is Saying. It was an eye opener and something I believe you can profit from greatly. Ever wonder what that stock broker was really thinking when he shook your hand and smiled? How about when Ben Bernanke gives a statement and is squirming in his seat before Congress? Or how about when your child gets home after curfew and proceeds to give you a whole song and dance about car trouble?

Joe has devoted his life and his career to find out the answers to these questions and much more. You’ll find the answers to these questions both useful and entertaining. Check out his site here.

‘Ranting’ Andy Hoffman – When Is A Bailout Not A Bailout? When You’re A Spanish Bank

from FinancialSurvivalNet

Another Monday, another session with “Ranting” Andy Hoffman. The so-called Spanish Bank Bailout is purely illusionary and isn’t really happening. Rather, it is an effort to convince the people of the world that something is being done and that the situation is under control. In reality, the world economy is being ravaged like a California forest by a wild fire. They’re pouring all the water they can to put the fire out, but there’s not enough water in the world to bring it under control. The fire must run its course, and the best we can hope for is that once the forest has been burned to the ground, we can try to stop it from reigniting.

On the subject of ETF’s and whether they’re really holding all the gold they claim to, the Funds have been caught flat-footed with the disclosure that the gold bar held up by CNBC reporter Bob Pisani, during his visit to the GLD vault at an undisclosed location, was actually owned by another ETF, unrelated to GLD. That’s why there’s no substitute for physical gold and silver. Watch the weight, not the price.

Bix Weir on the Road To Roota – Debt Jubilee, Asset Jubilee

from FinancialSurvivalNet

Bix Weir says things are heating up in Europe and once there’s no Euro, there won’t be a dollar for too long after that. Once Europe implodes, it’s goodbye time for the derivative markets. We’re already seeing the start, in Italy a bank holiday was declared by BNI bank, depositors presently cannot access their funds or pay bills. However, fear not, the bank will still accept payment for debts owed to them. But pretty soon, those debts, along with the bank’s deposits may very well cease to exist. Which is why gold, silver and a quantity of paper notes is still your best financial survival program. Bix will be checking in more as the situation heats up; and, the way things are going, it could boil over at any moment. Thank goodness we have the FDIC in the US. They’ll never let our giga banks go under. You can always trust the government to do the right thing for sure. Ha!

Elijah Johnson – The Impending Dollar Collapse

from FinancialSurvivalNet

Elijah Johnson interviewed me today to get my take on the impending dollar collapse. I won’t give an exact date for the collapse because it is part of a long term trend, and because the collapse will happen as a series of events. Europe, which is in dire straights, is at the forefront of this series of events. Don’t be fooled by the recent Spanish bailout, the debt is still on the books of every financial institution in the world. A gold backed system is the only antidote to the current global depression; the ability to create unlimited numbers of currency units is fundamentally corrosive to free markets and capitalism.

Alan Ellman – Staying Ahead of the Wall Street Pros

from FinancialSurvivalNet

Alan Ellman of The Blue Collar Investor has been writing covered calls for years. We’re all skeptical of someone who appears to have a system for turning the tables on the Wall Street exploitation machine, but he’s always finished up the year ahead of the machine. And his system is simple and easy to use. Of course like anything else in investing, it requires time and knowledge to become proficient at it. But Alan is confident that any motivated individual of average intelligence can succeed at it. And while FSN believes that a core precious metals holding is always essential to protecting wealth and guarding against reckless government spending and money printing, until the financial system breathes its last gasp, we all need to stay involved in investing and maximize our returns, so that we can keep our metals hoard safe and undisturbed and live off our fiat paper based income, which is why Alan’s advice is so valuable.

Ty Andros – Nothing Ever Really Changes – Especially Government

from FinancialSurvivalNet

Ty Andros is back examining the international monetary system with great disdain, as usual. Ty is one of those people who has voted with his wallet. He’s left the creeping totalitarianism of Chicago, and it’s greatly expanding Thugocracy, for the greener pastures of income tax-free Florida. There’s so much going on in the world and gold and silver will be the eventual beneficiaries of the current upheaval. The sentiment indicators and prices charts point to gold and silver’s bottom. Helicopter Ben has been unequivocal about his intention to inflate the currency into oblivion, but he’s still trying the shell game in an effort to fool investors into keeping faith in fiat currency and undermine their faith in the metals. How long this effort can continue is anybody’s guess.

Triple Lutz Report #194 – Ben Bernanke Speaks & Gold Crashes Again

from FinancialSurvivalNet

Ben Bernanke makes his little announcement that neither confirms nor denies QE3, and the gold market goes down $27 in a few minutes. What shock! But there’s a much bigger picture than the Big Man pretending to state something important. There’s disaster all around, both domestically and especially internationally, and there’s nothing he can or will do about it. He’s not there to help the middle class, and he’s certainly not going to help the poor. He’s the servant of the elites, and they’re calling all the shots. So ignore today and be ready for tomorrow.

Triple Lutz Report #193 – Robert Chapman, 1935-2012 – Rest In Peace

from FinancialSurvivalNet

To all of you out there listening, as always, a heart felt thanks. We’ve been at BlogWorld New York for the past few days, figuring out how to better do the show and better serve your needs. But I wanted to take a break and acknowledge the passing of our close friend, Bob Chapman, The International Forecaster. While we sent out an email to everyone on our list, we wanted to make sure that each of you understood the importance and reverance with which we held Bob. He was a clear voice of reason in a very confused and confusing time. Bob was a true friend to me, to the show, and to you. He helped so many people through difficult times in their lives, often anonymously; and, he helped prepare thousands, perhaps hundreds of thousands around the globe, for the coming economic disruptions.

Bob, words alone cannot express my gratitude. May your continued journey bring you much peace and contentment ~Kerry Lutz

John Rubino – Taking Control of the European Economy

from FinancialSurvivalNet

John Rubino of DollarCollapse.com joined us yesterday to discuss Europe and its impending failure. John says, and I agree, the Euro was designed with egregious flaws, and under the current system it’s not fixable. Chaos is a real possibility because the peripheral countries in Europe are in depression now; their unemployment levels are as bad as those of the U.S. in the 1930’s. These countries cannot devalue their currency because only the European Central Bank can control monetary policy. The only foreseeable solution would be internal devaluation by cutting labor costs, but this creates so much anger among the population. The people in charge of Europe feel a legitimate sense of urgency, and you should too.

Martin Armstrong – Dominoes Don’t Always Fall in a Straight Line

from FinancialSurvivalNet

Martin Armstrong, noted market analyst extraordinaire, joined FSN for a far reaching interview about the current direction of the economic system and the future of the Euro, Gold and the Dollar. His new book is due out just before the election and it promises to be a real bombshell. Martin’s done what few people have had the desire or commitment to: he went back to the Great Depression and analyzed the sovereign debt defaults and the true underlying causes.While this time is definitely different, there are many striking parallels. Sovereign debt defaults are the rule, not the exception, this time as well as last. The politician’s inability, lack of desire and incomprehension are the same this time as well. The attempt to print the world’s way out of the jam is another recurring theme. Which just proves that the more things change, the more they stay the same. Try telling that to Congress!

Richard Bernstein – Obamacare Unveiled: A Category 10 Hurricane Coming Right At Us

from FinancialSurvivalNet

Richard Bernstein has been involved in the insurance industry for decades; he was once an insurance advisor to Donald Trump. He’s done a full scale analysis of the upcoming bill and knows that it will be a disaster. He thinks there’s three good parts and the rest is evil and will lead to more government control over you medical treatment and health. While the insurance industry takes a big hit from the public, reduction of fraud and frivolous law suits would go a long way towards reducing the price of health care in America. But rather than addressing those issues, the government believes they need to step in and reduce our access to vital treatments. Hospitals are trying to control the doctors to mitigate their legal exposure, with potentially catastrophic results. In the end, we all hope that the US Supreme Court sees through it all and rules it unconstitutional.

‘Ranting’ Andy Hoffman – Don’t Let It (Gold and Silver) Turn Green

from FinancialSurvivalNet

Andy Hoffman was ecstatic, almost euphoric today. Gold went up over $66 per ounce last Friday, and the NY Mets won their first no-hitter in the team’s history. Meanwhile, back at the ranch, gold and silver are under attack today, but they’re holding up extremely well. But this week promises to be an extremely volatile one. The Bernanke is appearing before Congress, the EU has a major meeting coming up, and there’s, as always, lots of opportunity for mayhem. So breaking out the Champagne might be a little premature, but don’t start hitting the hard stuff yet to flush away your sorrow. We may not have turned the corner quite yet, but it’s starting to look like the bottom is behind us.

Triple Lutz Report #192 – Connect the Dots, End Game is Coming

from FinancialSurvivalNet

Zerohedge, one of our favorite financial sites, because the proprietors are wired to the real insiders. They excerpted a piece by legendary investor and Goldman alum, Raoul Pal. He explains that at best there’s six more months to go before the global financial reset takes place. He details the end of fractional reserve banking as we know it. There’s no avoiding the ultimate crash because $70 trillion of Western Sovereign Debt is holding up over $700 trillion worth of derivatives. No wonder he likens all this to the eye of a hurricane, from which we are just emerging. We’re not talking about any ordinary hurricane, like Katrina which was a category 4-5. Rather, we’re talking about a category 10 storm that will leave no financial edifice standing in its path. But gold and silver will help get us through, and this nuclear economic winter will pass.

Mickey Fulp’s Monthly Market Wrap Up – May Should Have Been 32 Days Long

from FinancialSurvivalNet

Mickey Fulp and I reviewed the May monthly market stats, and boy were they ugly. Virtually everything was down, except for natural gas, which couldn’t go much lower anyway. Gold, silver, copper, oil, you name it, all down. But fear not–June is a time to enjoy the beginnings of summer. While often times, “Sell in May and Go Away” applies, this time could very well be different. June 1 was probably the start of something big, but it is extremely important to review market trends each month so you can get an insight into where things are heading. Don’t miss the upcoming Fracking Roundtable next Friday, June 8. Mickey. This technology is literally the key to America’s and the World’s future.

Triple Lutz Report #191 – Celebrate National Doughnut Day, While We Ban Double Gulp Sugared Drinks

from FinancialSurvivalNet

Friday, June 1, 2012, was National Donut Day, and why shouldn’t we all celebrate a food/grease type that’s put more inches on the nation’s collective waist than just about any other food out there. While Nanny Michael Bloomberg, New York’s anti-fun mayor, attempts to ban double gulp, super-sized, sugary, soft drinks, the real obesity war is being lost at Krispy Kremes and Dunkin Donuts stores in New York City and around the nation. But as Val Hughes and Mo Mentum explained, investing in obesity producers is a must win strategy. Will Rogers once said, “Invest in inflation, it’s the only thing going up.” Well things have changed greatly in the past 100 years. If Will were alive today, he’d be saying, “Invest in America’s waist size, it is only going up.”

David Morgan – Precious Metals Special Rally Report

from FinancialSurvivalNet

David Morgan and I have been having too many precious metals panic reports, so we figured it was a good time to give a rally report. Today gold is up over $66 per ounce and silver’s rallied over $0.80 per ounce. These are dramatic, sudden, and possibly significant moves. Gold’s up over 4 percent in one day, an extremely rare occurrence, with silver following suit; silver’s up at just around a three percent increase. There have been signs of a precious metals rally on the horizon. The volume at the downside was slowing dramatically. The volume today was incredibly robust. All things considered, this might just be the breakout we were waiting for, and the persistent and continual bad news about the Euro and the daily disastrous job numbers could be the catalyst for an upward resumption. A couple of days ago, Sell in May and Go Away, looked like very sound advice. But today, June 1, 2012, on National Donut Day, the skids could be greased for overweighted returns in the precious metals markets.

Chris Duane – Silver’s Future Isn’t Tarnished – It’s Getting Brighter and Brighter

from FinancialSurvivalNet

We spoke with Chris Duane aka The Silvershield late yesterday afternoon, before the awful job numbers came out. He’s buying silver on a regular ongoing basis, completely undeterred by the hype and drone of the mainstream media and the mainstream investment/gambling consultants who concentrate on the stock market and other gaming venues. It’s refreshing to find someone who’s so confident in his beliefs and observations about the crumbling financial paradigm. Many others have jumped ship and probably jumped the shark as well. Chris has been a consistent voice and critic of the existing financial system for years. He’s dedicated his life to helping you understand and come to terms with the bleak financial future that lies ahead. Today, gold is up around 50 bucks and silver’s up 70 cents!

Robert Ian – What A Great Recovery as Foreclosures Continue to Pile Up

from FinancialSurvivalNet

Robert Ian, of Conquer Change, joined us to discuss the crumbling financial system. Recoveries come and go, but foreclosures are still going up and food stamp usage continues to climb. A debt jubilee is becoming more and more likely as the keepers of the status quo run out of options. This is great if you owe money, but not so great if you’re one of those rare and endangered species known as a Saver. While the meek will eventually inherit the earth, right now the banksters and their hoard of parasites are in complete control. You’ll know they’ve become irrelevant when you see the price of gold and silver shooting up to new heights. But don’t think you’ll be willing and able to buy at higher prices. The opportunity is now, but most will no doubt neglect it!

Ty Andros – It’s A Great Day to Own Gold and to Be an Austrian Economist

from FinancialSurvivalNet

Ty Andros joined us for a mutual celebration of National Donut Day. It was largely a spiritual celebration as neither of us can afford the extra waist-room to indulge in such fatty treats. It’s much more fun to watch the price of gold and silver slam through Da Boyz price roadblock, faster than Jim Cramer can say, “drachma.” Is this the final blow out? Our hearts say yes, but experience has made us all caution. Once again, gold is over 1600 and silver is approaching 30 bucks, and this appears to be heralding in yet another financial crisis milestone. Betting against the metals at any time during this bull market has been extremely hazardous to your wealth, unless of course you’re wired into the elites. In which case, you could sell in the morning and buy in the evening and retire after a year. But, as F. Scott Fitzgerald said, “The rich are different…”

Our favorite whipping boy Little Brother aka Nanny Bloomberg, formally known as Michael Bloomberg, is at it once again. Nanny Bloomberg wants to ban sugary drinks that are sold in containers larger than 16 ounces. As usual he knows better than you, and he wants you to retain your boyish or girlish figure. But don’t be too upset, you can still get that 1,000 calorie milk shake from Mickey D’s and as of yet refills don’t seem to be on his radar. These out of control, wannabe dictators must stay up nights thinking up these looney ideas.

There’s obviously no end in sight. So drink up, have a supersized 32 ounce Coke, compliments of the Financial Survival Network and wave hello to Little Brother as he watches you consume that life-threatening beverage on one of the many thousands of surveillance cameras around the Apple. The Eye-in-the-Sky is watching you. So behave yourself and obey! Or else you’ll really be in trouble.

Francis Cianfrocca – Inflation or Deflation? It Really Doesn’t Matter to Gold, Silver, or the Middle Class

from FinancialSurvivalNet

Francis Cianfrocca is a CEO of an internet security corporation, an industry that’s becoming more and more center stage. But when it comes to financial security and survival, he believes the US is using the declining living standards of the middle class to bolster the retirement/baby boomer generation. By sucking up all the excess capital in the markets, the US government is making it more and more difficult for people to invest in businesses and get real returns on their capital. Propping up the big zombie banks is not doing anything to improve the economy or to fuel economic growth. Francis and I both agreed that in the final analysis, these banks are not too-big-to-fail, and the government will have no choice but to let them fail in as orderly a manner as possible. The costs of keeping them on life support are increasing by the day, with absolutely no return. The financial wake-up call is coming, it’s just a matter of when.

Wayne A. Root – They’re Leaving New York and California In Droves

from FinancialSurvivalNet

Wayne A. Root is a long-term, dyed in the wool libertarian who understands what it takes (or took) to succeed in America: hard work, the courage to take a risk, and the desire to make it. Unfortunately, confiscatory taxes, burdensome regulation and a built-in hostility towards entrepreneurs is making it much more difficult today. Wayne’s got some answers in the book he wrote, The Conscience of a Libertarian: Empowering the Citizen Revolution with God, Guns, Gold & Tax Cuts. Wayne refers to himself as a Capitalist Evangelist, which isn’t such a bad thing. After all, he could be a wealth redistributionist, also known as a progressive.

Shawn Perger – There’s No Stopping the Precious Metals Bull Market

from FinancialSurvivalNet

Shawn Perger is from Vancouver Canada, and he has been involved with the mining industry his entire life. Canadians are much more in tune with the need for resources and the positive effect that such development has on economic activity. While he is certain that eventually gold and silver will reclaim their rightful place as real money, he also believes the efforts to save the existing fiat currency paradigm will stop at nothing to keep the system from imploding. Unfortunately, we are in a very perilous time for investors, and their unwillingness to accept the underlying reasons for monetary instability could be their undoing. As we’ve said numerous times before, no one can predict the exact moment of the global economic reboot, but it is certainly headed our way.

Danielle Park Says Spain is Too Big To Bail

from FinancialSurvivalNet

Debt elimination and repudiation is the only way the existing world’s economic disaster can end. The world’s central banks will not be able to print enough currency units to keep all of the losing enterprises afloat. Unfortunately, sacrifices will have to be made by all of the parties concerned, not just those least able to afford it. The too-small-to-save individuals and businesses have been left out of the bailout party, and they have suffered greatly during the current credit bust. Now, Spain, Italy and the rest of the economic basket-cases are approaching the moment when bailing them out will not be possible. Danielle Park believes cooler heads will prevail and accommodations will be made accordingly. FSN would like to believe that sanity will rule, but after four years of complete economic insanity, it’s hard to accept. What’s your opinion? Please let us know.

“Ranting” Andy Hoffman is Running Out of Rants!

from FinancialSurvivalNet

“Ranting” Andy is getting fed up with the news because it is pure propaganda. All talk of recovery is unadulterated BS, as is the belief that it’s normal for gold prices to be headed down. The western world is having a complete financial hemorrhage, and it shows the world has lost its collective sanity, as if it ever had any in the first place. But at least we can still relish in the simple pleasures of life, like going to a Mets game at the new stadium, going to family get togethers on the holidays, or just enjoying a nice day and dusting off our gold and silver. Ah the little things that will once again mean the world to all us. Once again “Ranting” Andy is ahead of the pack.
