How Will The ‘GREAT DEFLATION’ Impact Gold & The Dollar?

By the SRSrocco Report, The coming GREAT DEFLATION will impact the value of Gold and the Dollar much differently than what most analysts are forecasting.  Unfortunately, most analysts do not understand the true underlying value of gold or the U.S. Dollar, because they base their forecasts on information that is inaccurate, flawed or imprecise.

What Is This “Neutral” Interest Rate Touted By The Fed?

Submitted by Mark Spitznagel via The Mises Institute, There’s a lot of talk these days about the so-called “neutral” (or “natural” or “terminal”) interest rate projections of the Federal Reserve.

Greece Enters Its Crack-Up Boom Phase – When Fridges Become Money

Submitted by John Rubino via DollarCollapse.com, The Austrian School of economics has a concept called a “crack-up boom” in which a critical mass of people conclude that their government is actively trying to devalue its currency.
