The Future of Oil and the End of the Dollar

My basic thesis is that the U.S. is an empire in decline. In the past, it has made some brilliant moves that secured its place as the supreme economic, political, and military leader of the globe. But in its twilight years, America has fallen prey to the common trappings of empire: military overreach, an entitlement mindset, and currency depreciation.

How America’s Petrodollar System Influenced the 2003 Iraq War

One of the more sensitive, and therefore veiled, aspects of the petrodollar system is how it has impacted America’s relations with the Middle East. In life, everything boils down to incentives. If we are hoping to grasp how the world around us works, we must understand that behind every decision lies an incentive. Let’s see what role the power of incentives plays in the petrodollar system when it comes to American foreign policy in the Middle East.

SHOCK: Irish Government Raids PRIVATE Pensions To Pay For Spending

Editor’s Note: Ireland is in a tough financial spot. Unlike the U.S., it cannot simply print money to spend its way out of economic pain. So, with relatively few options, the Irish government is turning on its own citizens. Throughout history, governments have often sought to plunder the wealth of their own citizens through confiscation when they run out of options. It will be interesting to see how the citizens react to this one. Trust me, other governments with similar economic problems will be watching closely too. If little resistance is seen, expect more of this around the globe. It is because of stories like this one that I have been warning for years for Americans to keep their retirement funds diversified. 401k’s and traditional IRA’s are where Americans have been “trained” to store the majority of their retirement funds. For those of you who are interested in creating multiple streams of income in retirement, we are working hard to release a product just for you soon. Stay tuned!

The ugly truth that few are telling you is that the world is preparing to be plunged into an era of declining oil production which will lead to enormous energy price increases.

Silver Bull Market Likely to Zigzag to $100 and Beyond

By Paul Mladjenovic | Minyanville.com – Silver in the short term can be very volatile and abrupt pullbacks can happen. The leading culprits for recent pullbacks (which resulted on April 26 and May 2) were the moments that the futures exchange raised the margin requirements. Should we be concerned or pessimistic about silver’s future?

Guest Editorial: My 401k Dilemma

In 2008, our country went through a major financial meltdown. I stood there and watched 17 years of savings diminish. Half of my 401k was gone and my retirement plans went out the window. In September of 2008, I stopped my 401k contributions. I realized that some other plan was needed. As long as people in Washington are salivating over my retirement accounts, I will not contribute one more dime! I would rather buy silver, gold, and other commodities. I would rather be in control of my own retirement. The last thing I want to do is to depend on the government for anything.
