Marc Faber on Commodity Cycles, Monopoly Central Banking and the Wealth Redistribution Craze
August 03, 2014
Economically, there is not much that pleases me because I think we are in an economy that is on steroids – in other words, the money printing – and the money printing goes essentially to wealthy people. Of course, they spend and as a result of the asset bub ...

Stephan Kinsella on Libertarian Legal Theory, Self-Ownership and Drug Laws
July 20, 2014

Roberto Escobar on Colombia's Cocaine History, Pablo Escobar and the Failed War on Drugs
July 13, 2014
Escobar: I think the world will change its policies, first with marijuana and then with cocaine. The important thing then will be to invest in education for the children so they know that it's harmful, same as alcohol. The problem is that right now there is ver ...
Gerald Celente on Marijuana Legalization, OccupyPeace and the Solution to Government Gangsterism
July 06, 2014
When are Americans going to see through the charade? Right now they don't have the courage, dignity or self-respect to do so. They don't want to admit they've been conned by their con-manders in chief. They don't want to believe they bought the lies of hope and ...
Former CIA Spy Robert Steele Wants to Strangle Leviathan With 'Open Source' Governance
June 29, 2014

Ron Paul on the Evolution of Freedom in the 21st Century
June 22, 2014
I think the most important thing is education, spreading the message, which is where we're having success, and getting people to understand free-market economics – why it's good and why it's beneficial to the largest number of people and the reason we had a l ...
Nick Giambruno on FATCA, GATCA and the Changing Investment Scene, Worldwide
June 15, 2014

Paul Armentano on Individual Liberty, NORML and Marijuana Legalization vs. Decriminalization
June 08, 2014
I believe that it is an inappropriate use of state power to infringe upon the liberties of an individual simply based upon what he or she puts in their body. And nowhere do I believe this infringement upon the individual's liberty is more egregious than in situ ...
Ron Holland on the US Imperium, Coming Dollar Difficulties and the Advantages of Investing Abroad
May 25, 2014
I'm on the beach in the Caribbean today as I respond to the interview questions so for me, personally, like the Zac Brown Band sings in their hit song, "Toes", "I got my toes in the water, *ss in the sand not a worry in the world, a cold beer in my hand. Life i ...
Wendy McElroy on the New Normal, Victimless Crimes and Shifting Marijuana Laws
May 18, 2014

James Turk on Rising Gold, the Sinking Dollar and His New Book, 'The Money Bubble'
April 27, 2014

Terry Coxon on US Dysfunction and the International Trust Solution
April 20, 2014

Pat and Linda Gorman on Their Upcoming Wealth Protection Conference, Top Guests and Wealth Trends
April 13, 2014
Governments fear gold in the hands of citizens because when the people own and hold gold it takes away the ability of the government to reallocate wealth from those who produce to the banksters and powers that be. There will surely be some more downs and ups be ...
Doug Casey on the Continuing Debasement of Money, Language and Banking in the Modern Age
April 06, 2014
Market risk is huge today, but political risk is even bigger. One indication of that was, when the banks in Cyprus went bust some months ago, the government essentially confiscated everybody's account above 100,000 euros, in what they called a "bail-in." You co ...
Antal Fekete's Neo-Misesian Revisionism and Why He Believes It Is Necessary
March 30, 2014
The doctrinaire policy-makers in America are unlikely to do what must be done. But any jurisdiction (say Switzerland, the United Kingdom, France, or China) may open its mint to the free and unlimited coinage of gold (and silver). We must understand that the gol ...

Andy Hoffman on the Golden Bull, Failing Fiat and the Foundering of the Central Bank Economy
March 16, 2014
Andy Hoffman: "Whirlybird Janet," as she is already being referred to, will ultimately put "Helicopter Ben" to shame, by the time she's through. Frankly, who knows if the Fed will even survive the inflationary carnage of her four-year term? In 2013, TPTB used a ...
George Burdeau on the Magna Carta, Subsistence Culture and the Future of Western Civilization
March 09, 2014

Fred Sheehan on the Futility of Wall Street, the Coming Derivatives Disaster and the Craziness of Keynes
February 23, 2014
I am inclined to believe the only formal economics taught in the past 80 years in the U.S. of any use were the "home economics" courses taught to high school girls many moons ago. I did not receive such training, but the Austrian economists are the only school ...
Richard Ebeling on Austrian Economics, Economic Freedom and the Trends of the Future
February 16, 2014
There can be little doubt that Friedrich A. Hayek was one of the most profound and important economists of the 20th century. In my humble opinion, I consider Mises and Hayek to be the two greatest economists of our time. Whether as a monetary and business cycle ...
Jeffrey Tang on the Asian Markets and the Coming Deflation in China
February 09, 2014
Jeffrey Tang: China is heading for major restructuring. The twin engines of growth, export and construction, have both hit the wall. When major internal events happen, it will be so overwhelming that no external events will be able to distract attention. The ec ...
Imran Hussain on Frontier-Market Investing and the UAE Tax-Free Zone
February 02, 2014

January 27, 2014
Daily Bell: David Cameron has been dismissive of UKIP. Is he right to be or wrong? Nigel Farage: He may be being dismissive but he is doing his best to copy us! Even our energy policy, in support of fracking, has now been aped by the Conservative Party. From Sy ...

Sheldon Richman on Almost Everything – From a Libertarian Standpoint
January 19, 2014
I think Obamacare is doing exactly what we free-market advocates predicted, that there were bound to be numerous problems. I think the website rollout problems are actually the least of the problems because they are potentially fixable. You can fix a website. W ...
Redmond Weissenberger on the New Mises Institute and the Failure of Canadian Corporatism
January 12, 2014
As far as I am concerned, "Austrian free-market thinking" is simply common sense – it takes years of indoctrination to believe that you can get something for nothing. When I happened upon the teachings of the Austrian School I came to the understanding that I ...

January 05, 2014

Jesse Heaslip, Bitcoin Entrepreneur: How a Government Partnership Will Build a Bright Future
December 29, 2013
For the most part, bitcoin is not anonymous to begin with. That's kind of a myth. In the past, there has been research into tracking micro transactions and you can pretty much figure out the user if you track enough of them. There will always be dark wallets an ...
Doug Bell on the Decline of the Green Revolution and the Future of Farming
December 22, 2013

G. Edward Griffin on Globalism, Collectivism and 'Right Principles'
December 15, 2013
There are so many issues, so many fires raging, that we're kind of like a fire brigade. We've only got a limited amount of water and we have to decide which fires we are going to throw the water on. We're running around and somebody says, "This fire over here i ...
Top Hedge Fund Manager Tom Conrad on Global Equity Trends and Blown-Up Markets
December 08, 2013
Thomas D. Conrad: The petrodollar was viable only because Saudi Arabia was the dominant oil producer and could insist that other countries pay for oil only in US dollars. Lately, the BRIC countries – Brazil, Russia, India and especially China – have made st ...

Jim Rogers on Price Inflation, Investing in Asia and Why China Will Continue to Boom
November 17, 2013

Ron Holland on 'Restoring Our American Legacy' and Protecting Your Wealth in Perilous Times

Gerald Celente on Multinationalism, Breaking the Chains and Individual Renaissance
November 03, 2013
It's not only the US; it's the entire world. In the next Trends Journal in the "Epiphany" piece that I'm doing I've come up with the epiphany that this is not globalization; it's multinationalization. What we're looking at is a corporate takeover of such great ...
Dr. Antal Fekete on Real Bills, Quantity of Money Theory and the New Austrian Economic Manifesto
October 27, 2013
Antal Fekete: The liquidity trap is claptrap invented by Keynes. If the Fed is trying to fend off deflation, then it is using counter-productive means to achieve its ends. Paradoxically, ZIRP (zero interest rate policy) has the effect of destroying capital. It ...

October 20, 2013
