Dear CIGAs, After writing my last piece regarding Martin Armstrong I thought that would be enough, it wasn’t. A reader replied and forwarded this recent article by Mr. Armstrong http://www.armstrongeconomics.com/archives/37416 “Did Gold Survive the Depression?

Dear CIGAs, We will no doubt look back upon the current era as the “crime of the century” for so many different reasons. Actually, current times represent the worst financial crimes of ALL TIME!

Dear CIGAs, For many years I have written about “debt saturation” being the ultimate problem and the end game to the current system. Back in 2007 I wrote how we were facing a solvency problem rather than a liquidity problem. When the Treasury and Fed treated the 2008 debacle with more liquidity, I was adamant… Read more »
