Eurasian Economic Union and trade zone scheduled to begin in May

The concept behind the European Union was to solidify the economic power of European nations under one umbrella in the wake of World War II, and the ever changing sphere of global super powers.  Starting in the late 1950's between companies in France and Germany, this union has morphed into a go-political monstrosity run by un-elected technocrats, and using a common currency that has stifled trade throughou ...

Nations dumping dollar reserves to the tune of $100 billion last week

The biggest threat to the U.S. dollar is not events in Ukraine, nor the economy, and not the stock markets.  No, the biggest threat has always been the over $16 trillion in offshore currency that might one day find its way back to the U.S.. And unfortunately, that day may be coming much faster than the U.S. anticipated.  A new report from the Treasuries In Custody (TIC) report showed that just last week, fo ...

Former World Bank economist calls for new global currency and end to the dollar

One of the inevitable consequences of a purely fiat currency is that eventually a central bank will inflate and devalue it out of existence for the country it is used in.  However, when that same currency is the world's reserve currency, then that same inflation can be exported to nearly every nation as they are required to use it for international trade settlement. Which brings up an interesting point made ...

Gold price manipulation pushes mint supplies to the brink

No matter how much a government or central bank believes they can control every aspect of an economy, the natural laws of supply and demand will always rule markets, even during times of intervention and manipulation.  Since 2011, when the Federal Reserve used their proxy banks like J.P.
