Dollar Alternative Anyone?

By Greg Hunter’s 

Countries around the world have been actively seeking ways to not do business in dollars for the past few years.  The U.S. dollar is the so-called world reserve currency, but the big question is for how long?  China and Japan are beginning to shun the dollar in trade between the two countries.  Mind you, this is the 2nd biggest economy in the world doing business without dollars with the 3rd biggest economy in the world.  Russia and China, also, have an agreement to not use the dollar, and even India recently announced it would trade gold for oil with Iran.  (more…)

Two Parties No Difference

By Greg Hunter’s 

The political season is well underway, and the real problems of the country and how to fix them are not being talked about.  Instead, we get lengthy discussions on things like contraception or religion.  The banking system is being propped up by phony accounting and is insolvent if it were audited using the same accounting methods as the IRS.  Neither party is talking about real issues and real solutions for the country.  (more…)

A good friend of mine, who has family living abroad, called me this weekend. One of the first things out of his mouth was about his sister in London and how she was dealing with “terrible inflation.” No doubt he was talking about the spike in gasoline prices that have risen to more than $8 a gallon. (The official inflation rate in the UK is around 3.6%, but I’m sure the numbers over there are as reliable as the inflation numbers in the U.S. where fuel and food are not counted in the so-called “core” inflation.)  (more…)

Greek Debt Deal Done—Yeah Right

Greek Debt DealBy Greg Hunter’s 

I keep asking myself, when is a deal not a deal?  Every time I hear the words “Greek debt deal” or “Greek bailout” in the same sentence, I wonder if, this time, they really have a deal.  Yesterday, I was thinking that again when it was announced there was a new Greek debt deal.  The headline from Reuters read, “Europe seals new Greek bailout but doubts remain.”  (more…)

Consequences of Iran-Israel War

The latest headline proves, once again, Iran and Israel are moving closer to war.  The only question is when.  A headline, today, from said, “Tehran steps into US-Israel Iran row with threat of pre-emptive strike.”  The story goes on to say, “Deputy Chief of Iran’s Armed Forces Gen.

Inflation Everywhere but MSM Says NOT

By Greg Hunter’s 

It seems every chance the mainstream media (MSM) gets, it tells us things really aren’t that bad.  For example, the headline from the Associated Press (AP) said, Consumer prices on the rise, but inflation outlook is benign.”   Who approves the headlines at the AP?  Prices are rising, but there is no inflation?  Aren’t rising prices the main ingredient of inflation?  (more…)

It is said “a picture is worth a thousand words,” and the following story features more than a dozen from Greece, Europe and the Middle East where people are protesting the burden laid on them by the crooked, wreckless bankers.  Nothing is settled in the European debt crisis, and the deal in Greece is on and off and on and off.  This summer, journalists in the USA will probably see some of the same photo opportunities.  (more…)
