Hard asset expert Tom Cloud has more than three decades of hard asset experience and more than 2,000 high-net-worth clients.  Cloud says the rich are putting “45% of their wealth into hard assets” like gold and silver.  Cloud says his clients “. . . fear there’s going to be a new currency . . . they know gold will win no matter what.”  Cloud’s clients think the dollar’s days are numbered as the “petro currency.”  When oil is traded globally in other currencies, Cloud says, “The dollar is going to fall off the table, everybody agrees on that.”  Cloud thinks that could happen in less than “18 months.”  When the dollar plunges, interest rates will spike, and Cloud predicts, “Bonds are the next killing field of investments.”   Cloud is confident, “Gold will double in less than 4 years.”  (more…)

The Vice Presidential debate was this week, and it was supposed to get into the real down and dirty numbers.  Vice Presidents rarely make a difference in the outcome of a Presidential election, so who cares who won.  I am focusing on what is not said, and both parties conveniently leave out the $85 billion a month the Fed is printing to bail out bankers and suppress interest rates.  (more…)

Great Asset Repositioning

Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com 

Since this site went on line three years ago, more than a dozen readers either emailed or commented they cashed out of their IRAs or 401-Ks, paid the tax and penalty, and invested in physical gold and silver.  One reader, in particular, told me he did this when gold was at the outrageous “bubble” price of around $800 per ounce.   (more…)

The first Presidential debate is wrapped up, and it looks like Republican challenger Mitt Romney scored a big victory against President Obama.  Romney zinged Obama a couple of times and looked way more prepared than the President.  When Obama brought up the nearly $3 billion in tax credits given to oil and gas companies, Romney fired back with $90 billion to green energy companies, most of which have failed or are not making a profit.  (more…)

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, Assistant Treasury Secretary in the Reagan Administration, says, “The Israel/Iran conflict is not about nukes, but water!”  Dr. Roberts says, “Israel wants to get rid of Iran as supplier to Hezbollah . . . .

There were lots of fireworks at the United Nations this week.  Yesterday, the Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, was drawing a red line of his own on a crude picture of a bomb.  Don’t laugh, because he was really talking to the U.S. audience in illustrating his point that Iran is getting close to building a nuclear bomb.  It was simple but effective.  (more…)

Gold is a Currency

By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com 

We have long been told that gold is a commodity–that it is no different than a bushel of corn or a barrel of oil.  In many newspapers, it is listed under the commodity section.   With the advent of the Federal Reserve’s recent announcement of “unlimited” Quantitative Easing (QE) or money printing, that has changed.  The view of gold as a commodity has circled back to what banker JP Morgan proclaimed to Congress in 1913, “Gold is money and nothing else.”   Many folks in the blogosphere have long agreed with the original JP Morgan.  (more…)

By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com 

I just want to focus on two stories today: the Federal Reserve’s latest round of money printing and the Middle East.  Let’s start with the Fed’s announcement.  It will print money and spend it buying $40 billion a month in sour debt.  It says it is to keep interest rates low and to spur employment, but it’s much more about a continued bailout of the big banks.  (more…)
