Windsor area mom worries about HST impact

By Jeff Bolichowski, The Windsor Star May 28, 2010 8:22 AM.

WINDSOR, Ont. — Tough decisions are in store for Veronica Penfold when Ontario's harmonized sales tax debuts at the gas pump.
For the single mom from Harrow, driving is a necessity. The nearest store is five kilometres away, and she's got three children to drive to school. LINK...

Witness inflation disguised as taxes. It makes one wonder if the "bail-out" packages and endless government spending have anything to do with an official inflation rate less than 2%? Someone is smoking some cheap tobacco (no offence to the smokers). GCC

Greek Scramble For Physical Brings Gold Price To $1,700 Per Ounce

Submitted by Tyler Durden on 05/26/2010 17:57 -0500

Coinupdate.com reports that prices at which the Greek Central Bank is selling one ounce gold equivalents are as high as $1,700 (40% over spot), and prices on the black markets are even higher. The punchline, as Athens slowly returns to a forced gold standard: " A popular spot for street vendors to sell their coins is near the Athens Stock Exchange. LINK...

They say that fashionable trends start in Europe and end in America. Well folks, if gold is selling for 40% above spot in Greece now, and many economists say the financial crisis in Europe will come to America in the near term, then we would suggest buying your gold ASAP while the premiums are still low. Of course our opinion is biased, but we believe we are looking out for the best interests of our clients. GCC

Will Gold Replace Currencies?

CNBC Europe

Wed. May 26 2010 2:40 AM ET

Gold has reached record highs in recent weeks, but it will continue to go much higher in price, Ben Davies, CEO, Hinde Capital said. Davies said he views gold, not as a commodity, but as a cash supplement. Less developed countries will buy gold to increase reserves, he added. LINK...

Unfortunately the rise of gold brings about a decline of the financial system and most fiat currencies, but for those family dynasties who want to protect their accumulated wealth like the Rockefeller's and the Rothschild's, GOLD is the ultimate currency. As mentioned in the interview, the ultra wealthy always come out of a crisis owning gold, so why not follow their lead? GCC

Melt Up: National Inflation Association

A MUST see video...

Dear readers,

This is a very well presented documentary that will give you an objective view of what is in store for the future of the global economy. Please do not view this as fear mongering, but simply a presentation of facts that need to be addressed very quickly. It is our belief that eventually the western world will come to its senses and make the proper changes necessary to stabilize and grow our economies, in REAL economic terms. However during this period of adjustment we will have to struggle through some rough times and much higher gold and commodity prices.

For those of you who struggle with the idea of owning gold because mainstream financial media is always discounting the idea of gold as an investment, when compared to stocks, bonds and mutual funds, please consider the following:
  • Gold has been a store of wealth and value for over 5000 years, have any of your stocks or mutual funds been around that long?
  • Gold is NOT a company or a fund so it can NEVER go bankrupt or be worth ZERO. Can any company or fund claim this?
  • Gold is "MONEY" that has NO debt attached to it, can any government currency or company say this?
  • Gold cannot be created out of thin air, unlike all fiat paper currencies that governments issue today.
  • If central banks around the world always have some gold stashed away, why should YOU be any different?
  • There is always the right time and wrong time to convert a persons assets into gold (notice I didn't say invest). Over the last ten years it has obviously been the right time because of economic conditions and we believe the current conditions are far worse, and people should be converting even more assets into gold than before.

Folks, at the core of it all GOLD is really financial insurance not an investment. It should be viewed as something that will maintain your standard of living during economic uncertainty. The best way to view gold is to ask yourself, "what can I buy with one ounce of gold today (after it's coverted to any global currency) that I could have bought 20, 30 or 100 years ago?" You will find that one ounce of gold will afford you the same quantity of goods and services throughout history. Show me a government issued currency that has been used for the exchange of goods as long as gold, and I'll show you a pig that can fly.

Chinese Dumping Worthless Paper Currency For Gold

Think about this folks, the Chinese have absorbed much of our manufacturing industry and received paper currency in return.

JP Morgan: Gold Could Now Face "Unlimited" Demand

May 13, 2010 10:12am EDT by Vincent Fernando,

JP Morgan’s John Bridges believes the latest breakout for gold was a huge positive sign for the metal.
Euro weakness fears, coupled with dollar weakness fears, could lead to an enormous amount of demand:
JP Morgan:
A German banker once told us that gold normally trades like a commodity. However, when investors lose confidence in currencies, because the pool of gold is so much smaller than the pool of currencies, demand for gold can effectively become unlimited. We believe the European version of “QE” is generating serious currency worries and led today to the breakout of the gold price above the previous intraday high at $1,226/oz. LINK...

Jim Rickards on KWN talks about the IMF meeting and a world currency


Eye opening interview with Jim Rickards as he talks about the IMF and their intention of issuing a "global currency" and questions their accountability. Jim also says that recent events are the catalyst for gold to hit $2,000/oz in the near term. LINK...

********************************************

Folks, after listening to Jim's interview it really sets the stage for much higher gold and commodity prices in general because when you realize that the financial system is just shuffling paper in different forms to drive the market it is like a house of cards. There is NO tangible value. We believe that people are starting to flock to REAL investments, that you can hold in your hand. Whether it's gold, silver, soybeans or timber people are looking for true value not just a piece of paper that is a promise to pay. GCC

Austrian Mint Says Gold Sales Soar on Panic Buys


Wed, 12th May 2010 14:49

By Boris Groendahl VIENNA, May 12 (Reuters) - The Austrian Mint, which produces the popular Philharmonic gold coin, sold more gold in the two weeks from April 26 than in the entire first quarter of the year because of soaring demand in Europe, it said on Wednesday. The mint sold 243,500 ounces of gold in coins and bars in that period, compared to 205,000 ounces in the entire first three months of the year, marketing director Kerry Tattersall told Reuters in a phone interview. 'Demand is exclusively from Europe, we haven't had any orders from the United States and Asia in the last few weeks,' Tattersall said. 'That's a clear sign that there is panic buying because of concerns about Greece and the euro.' LINK...

Most Europeans understand that Gold is a safe haven currency because they have the cultural history to back it and they understand currency fluctuation much better than most westerners. For the elderly in Germany, they can still recall what it means to have hyper-inflation. During the Weimar Republic people were carting wheel barrels of paper money to buy a loaf of bread. GCC

Today you can BREAK a country and you don't even need money, says Jim Rickards.

Compliments of Zero Hedge.

Jim Rickards, who recently has gotten massive media exposure on everything from the JPM Silver manipulation scandal, to the Greek default, was back on CNBC earlier with one of the most fascinating insights we have yet heard from anyone, which demonstrates beyond a doubt why any attempt by Europe to print its way out of its current default is doomed: "Look at what Soros did to the Bank of England in 1992 - he went after them, they had a finite amount of dollars, he was selling sterling and taking the dollars, and they were buying the sterling and selling the dollars to defend the peg. All he had to do was sell more than they had and he wins. But he needed real money to do that. Today you can break a country, you don't need money you just need synthetic euroshorts or CDS. LINK...

Canadian Economist--Rosenberg and the case for $3,000 Gold

David Rosenberg of Guskin-Sheff
May 5, 2010

In the interim, the ECB has been forced to water down its charter as it permits sub-investment grade Greek bonds as collateral. Sadly, the central bank is not a remake of the Bundesbank and the Euro is less of a “hard currency” than its architects could have ever envisaged a decade ago. Now there is talk that the ECB is contemplating a quantitative easing plan (see ECB Should Resist QE Siren Call on page C14 of the WSJ). The case for gold heading to $3,000 an ounce is getting stronger by the day. The Euro has already broken below 1.30 to the U.S. dollar and there is plenty of room for additional decline going forward. It’s only at a one-year low — wait until it moves to a decade low. Read more: LINK...

******************************************

Understanding the rise in gold is NOT about the rise in gold, but the loss of confidence in the U.S. dollar and other fiat paper currencies. At the end of all this madness people will flock to an investment that has maintained it's "INTRINSIC" value throughout history and that investment will be gold and silver. It is hands down the best performing asset class over the last decade, NO QUESTION! The important thing to realize is that the fundamentals driving gold higher are even stronger now than they were in 2001. GCC

Gold funds shine once again in April

Vikram Barhat / May 04, 2010

Precious metal funds posted best returns in April as markets see-sawed over the Greek debt crisis, according to preliminary performance data released by Morningstar Canada.
"Government debt and related currency concerns helped boost the price of gold and other commodities," said Esko Mickels, fund analyst for Morningstar Canada.
With 12.2% return, Morningstar Precious Metals Equity Fund Index proved to be the best performer for the second time in the past three months, the report said. Thirty-six of the 43 Morningstar Canada Fund Indices had positive returns in April, though 22 of them gained less than 1%. LINK...
