I am a rather strange creature. I am a monetary conservative who supports socialist structures for society. Oddly enough, for the same reasons the first proto-socialist, Herr Otto von Bismark used when he justified the very first modern social safety net supports in Germany 130 years ago. In today's news, we will be talking about the Federal Reserve's obvious failures, the resignation of the biggest advocate for cutting interest rates---Mr. Mishkin, the failure of the US imperial/socialist regimes. Yet another director is throwing in the towel and retreating to academia where he can teach youngsters all sorts of useless stuff. And the big news for all gold holders: Canada is now demanding everyone who is buying gold will now have to REGISTER with the government so they can track you guys! Goldman Sachs runs the Bank of Canada and he wants his nose in YOUR affairs!
