Rumors

Filed under: Gold and Silver Investing, Odds 'n ends, Precious metals — totallygroovygirlfriday @ 11:42 am

Groovygirl thought this post from Jim Sinclair on the rumors of gold confiscation was very good. If the government wants to take your money, as we have seen, they can devalue the fiat dollar.

They can also replace investments with mandatory “triple A” investments of US treasuries or bonds. These games will buy them more time and confidence than gold confiscation.

But, gg will say that they can discourage physical gold and silver investments by taxing them more. But gg bought early and held. When she sells, it doesn’t matter the tax. She still makes more profit and will keep capital than any other investment class. A change in tax may only influence a little when she starts to sell, but it will influence nothing else about her precious metals investment plan.

It’s all about Net Energy

Filed under: Economic Crisis, Peak Energy, US Government Debt — totallygroovygirlfriday @ 1:31 am

Click here for Chris Martenson’s latest blog post Eye Wide Shut: We Are In A Bad Spot. Another excellent post regarding the real long-term issue. Which is NOT debt, but diminishing net energy return.

Net energy is how much energy does it take to get new energy out (mined, pumped, fracked, etc.) and useable and what is the net of those costs.

Imploding debt is a 5-10 year problem. Diminishing net energy is a 50-100 year problem.

Rising debt costs add to those costs, yes. But we must look at it from an energy to energy standpoint. Cheap and expanding debt hides the real picture.

And here is a discussion of some solutions to that long-term net energy problem. Local economies and guilds!

Germany’s calling, they want their gold back!

Filed under: Gold and Silver Investing, Precious metals, The Banking Crisis, The Federal Reserve — totallygroovygirlfriday @ 11:13 am

This should be interesting. Click here.

There was some talk about this before the Euro Crisis became front and center and now they are talking about it again. One of two things will happen: Germany will demand their gold, not get it, and the world will know the real gold story. Or this will be quietly swept under the rug and Germany will get even more unlimited money from the NYFed/Fed for their bailout of Europe.

But gg thought gold was not money?

Regardless of the outcome, this is a test of confidence in trust in the NYFed’s vault, US as a financial leader, and the US Dollar. It is one thing for Venezuela to ask for their gold, it is another for the only legit creditor in Europe to ask for theirs back.
