    Given that the powers that be are highly motivated to keep their power and privilege intact, we all need to be prepared for the trends to continue for a while longer, perhaps a lot longer, before they change.

    In fact, I think we need to get this right out on the table; nothing will change until something forces that change.

    Whether that’s an ecological catastrophe that cannot be ignored any longer, a financial collapse, or a social rebellion is unknowable.  But something along those lines.

    Power never gives up its advantages willingly.  Especially not a power structure so far gone that it shrugs when its children (as young as 5!) and farmers alike are resorting to suicide as a means of escape from its depredations and oversights.

    Especially not from a system of banking that doesn’t even question handing out many trillions of dollars against dodgy collateral (“it was an emergency!”).

    Meanwhile you and I have to live our lives knowing that there’s a rigged game afoot that is rather unhinged and bottomless in its desire for more (mammon is winning).

    The opportunity, such as it is, is for us to first recognize this game for what it is (rigged) and to realign our own actions with the future we wish to see.  Step one is…

    The Company Store

    Leaves almost nothing to live on

    The scam enabled by today’s financial ““markets”” coupled with lots of easy cheap credit flowing to big monied interests is every bit as egregious as the company store of old; only today’s victims are mostly blind to the way that the system is rigged against them.

    Run this scam long enough and one day we’ll discover that the banks and their proxy agents — private equity funds, hedge funds, endowments, and family offices, etc — own all of the productive farmland, all of the mines, all of the oil wells, all of the timberland, and every other means of primary wealth production.

    A Primer On How To Buy And Store Gold & Silver

    Most people aren't aware of the full range of options

    I'm always surprised by how few people understand the options for buying precious metals. Even the very affluent.

    I find myself guilty of assuming that everyone is as familar as I with the full specturm of gold-silver purchase options available. So to correct that, I've taken the time this week to detail those options out for the novice buyer.

    So, if you've been thinking about converting some of your paper fiat money into precious metals but are unsure how to start, wonder no more.

    Below is a primer of the main options available to you, and in which situations each makes sense to consider.

    If You Don’t Own Any Bitcoin, Read This

    This week it hit $19,000. What's next?
    by Adam Taggart

    Bitcoin's price has gone 'beyond exponential' this week.

    Just yesterday, while I was working on this article, it shot up 22% — from $14,000 to $17,000 (hitting an intraday high of $19,000). And that's after a mind-blowing upwards rocket ride over the past several months. I think it's safe to say that the vicious melt-up in price over such a short timeframe has surpassed the expectations of even the starriest-eyed Bitcoin fanboys.

    The whole world, especially the 99.99% of us that own zero cryptocurrency, is asking: What happens next? And, What should I do?

    Is this insane trajectory going to continue for a lot longer? Do I need to get in now to avoid missing this once-in-lifetime fortune-making opportunity?

    Or is this a classic bubble blow-off top? Is this the deadliest time to enter, right before the price implodes?

    Brien Lundin: If They Don’t Want You To Own It, You Probably Should

    The wisdom (and challenges) of owning safe haven assets
    by Adam Taggart

    One of the most perplexing mysteries to us is that right as the Federal Reserve embarked on QE3 — which was a huge, enormous, $85 billion a month experiment — commodities began a multiyear decline within two weeks of that announcement. Concurrently, the world’s central banks plunged the world into steeply negative real interest rates, a condition that has almost always resulted in booming commodity prices — but not this time. Today, the ratio between commodity prices and equities is at one of, if not the most, extreme points in history.

    To explain that gap, we talk this week with Brien Lundin, publisher of Gold Newsletter and producer of the New Orleans Investment Conference (where Chris and Adam are speaking on Oct 25-28):

    Leanne Baker: Investing In Gold & Silver Mining Companies

    How to identify the best prospects in this risky sector
    by Adam Taggart

    Sunday, May 14, 2017, 6:44 PM

    For precious metals investors looking to increase their exposure to this asset class beyond owning bullion or gold and silver ETFs, mining companies are a natural consideration. Their prices usually move much more dramatically in response to smaller price moves in the underlying metals they mine. In a bull market, it's very possible for the share prices of these companies to increase by hundreds of percents within a year or two.

    But there are a lot of gold and silver mining companies out there, many of which are small operators. Risk abounds in this sector. And for the past half-decade, most of these companies have been absolute widow-makers for investors. How do we identify which companies are worth considering and which should be avoided? How (if at all) should the small investor go about gaining exposure to precious metals mining companies?

    To address this, Dr. Leanne Baker, former mining analyst at Solomon Smith Barney and current director of Agnico Eagle Mines Ltd, joins the podcast this week.
