Global Debt And Gold Headed Higher
November 19 (King World News) – Fred Hickey: Global debt just keeps on soaring [$277 trillion by the end of this year]. Spending (particularly by governments) gone wild. Only one (acceptable) way to handle the exploding debts – central bank interest rate suppression and monetary debasement. Primary reason one needs gold. Yet very few own it.

“An Idea Is Like A Virus”
In the 2010 movie Inception, the protagonist, Dom Cobb, played by Leonardo DiCaprio, says that “an idea is like a virus, highly contagious.” The idea that we can print or spend our way to prosperity is very seductive. It takes no effort. But it’s not how wealth is created. Wealth is created by individuals and businesses working for their own gain, to the benefit of society overall.
