Gold Value vs. Dollar Value

December 12, 2018

It’s been a volatile year for both the stock market and the U.S. dollar. While the dollar did see a heartening upswing after April, the current state of national and global politics has made it hard to predict with any reasonable degree of certainty how the dollar will fare at any point in the near future. Speculation that the Federal Reserve would raise interest rates helped the value of the dollar, but overall, the period from June 2017 to June 2018 was not particularly kind to the dollar. After a skid from June through September 2017, the dollar began to... View Article

An Overview of Gold Price Manipulation

November 21, 2018

Take a look back over the history of central banks in the United States and beyond, and you’ll notice there is a long, clearly documented history of manipulation of gold prices.

The Next Crash Could Be Worse Than the Great Depression

October 24, 2018

Financial experts are not exactly sunny on the future of the American economy. There have been several reports focusing on certain foreboding economic factors, such as massively skyrocketing household debts and student loans, that could result in a crash some experts believe could be “worse than the Great Depression.” Goldman Sachs, one of the world’s largest financial institutions, predicted the American financial outlook for this year would be “not good,” and reported that household debt in the United States has been steadily rising since the 2008 housing crisis and financial crash forced American taxpayers to bail out many of the...
