Mainstream Media Recovery Hoax

By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com 

USA Today’s headline Monday in the “Money” section of the newspaper read “Will fragile U.S. economy shatter?”  This story should have come with an apology to readers for reporting a so-called “recovery” for a couple of years now that was, in reality, nothing more than bottom bouncing.  (more…)

Dollar and America on the Road to Ruin

By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com  (revised)

In the last week or so, I’ve noticed an unusual amount of really well written and researched articles warning of impending doom and financial horror.  These articles are not written by a bunch of angry uneducated bloggers but by money managers, investors and financial writers.  All are people who got it right leading up to the meltdown of 2008, and my bet is they are right again.  (more…)

Treasury Bills: The New Opium

Jim Rickards

About this time last year, I heard financial expert Jim Rickards say on CNBC, “Federal Reserve needs to cut US Dollar in half over next 14 years.” He followed that up by saying, “If the market sees that playing out which it probably will, you could have a very rapid collapse of the dollar.” Fast forward to today with gold hitting all-time highs, his scenario may be beginning to play out.  Rickards is a heavyweight in the world of finance.  He is Senior Managing Director for Market Intelligence at Omnis, Inc., and co-head of the firm’s practice in Threat Finance & Market Intelligence.  He is a big thinker that peers into the future for a living.
