COMMENT: I enjoyed your article on gold and how trends change with the generations. I find it very true that my children looked at me with my silver bars and just asked so what can you really do with it? I have watched the youtube video when people choose the chocolate bar over a bar […]


Who is the Fool? The Borrower or the Lender?

By admin / August 20, 2018

Many people worry about over-indebtedness and point to a default of borrowers. It is interesting how the view of debt is always the low-life borrower. In reality, the real stupidity rests with the lender. Many are pointing to US corporate debt and stating that it has grown to an estimated US $ 7 trillion and they […]

The Minsky Moment

By admin / August 11, 2018

A number of people have asked if I ever looked at Hyman Minsky’s concepts in forecasting the economy. Minsky’s Financial Instability Hypothesis failed not because of the fact that he attempted to interject cycles and even listened to Schumpeter, the problem was that he was an economist and not a trader.

COMMENT: Dear Mr. Armstrong, The weather, politics, and life in general is getting a little more skewed month by month on the planet—and like everyone else in history who has experienced cyclical highs and lows, I sure wish I’d been able to skip this cycle altogether— I’m 64 and really trying to keep realistic and not […]


Did the Swiss Reject the Same Idea Behind Cryptocurrency?

By admin / July 9, 2018

  COMMENT: Mr. Armstrong; As you know, we rejected the proposal to eliminate banks from creating money by lending or the Sovereign Money Initiative.

Were the Crusades just for Plunder & Money?
