Outside the Box: Cool Tech for Your Workouts

  I know that what you’ll encounter in today’s Outside the Box is not macroeconomics. But we all have to live in the real world, and our health is as real as it gets. So this is just one guy telling his friends about something he found that has helped make his world a lot […]

Thoughts from the Frontline: Interview with Steve Forbes

  I’m not certain how many interviews I’ve done over the last decade. Hundreds? I know it is a lot. There are some interviewers who can somehow tease out what you really have in you. Tom Keene at Bloomberg, for instance, forces you to bring your A game, at whatever level you play. He brings […]

The Correction Isn’t Over, But Gold’s Headed to $20,000

In April of 2008, Casey International Speculator published an article called “Gold—Relative Performance to Oil” by Professor Krassimir Petrov, then at the American University in Bulgaria, now a visiting professor at Prince of Songkla University in Thailand.

Does the FDA Think You’re Stupid?

Does the FDA think you’re too stupid to have access to your own genetic information? It sure seems so.

Outside the Box: Euthanasia of the Economy?

  Today’s Outside the Box comes to us from my good friend and business partner Niels Jensen of Absolute Return Partners in London. Niels gives us an excellent summary of how QE has affected the global economy (and how it hasn’t). I have found myself paraphrasing Niels all week. I also want to call to […]

Taxes Don’t Matter… Until They Do

Since the latter part of 2008, the yield on cash has been so low that sheltering it from taxes didn’t seem to matter.

  By Grant Williams  | December 2, 2013 This is an early warning. I’m going to be talking about gold (again) this week, so those amongst you who just kinda wish I wouldn’t do that may be excused. There. Now it’s just us. On November 1, 1961, an agreement was reached between the United States […]

Evidence on Why Gold Is Falling on the Verge of a Dollar Implosion

Bud Conrad, Casey Research chief economist, predicts in this fascinating interview with Future Money Trends that the US dollar will implode and be replaced with a new currency, quite possibly one backed by gold. Then why is the gold price dropping like a brick in the face of dollar devaluation? Watch the video for Bud’s […]

Gasoline: $1/Gallon

My children will never let me forget this: while on a Carter-era family vacation to Florida, I pulled into a gas station and abruptly drove off, announcing, “I’ll be damned if I will pay $1/gallon for gasoline.” With each passing mile on I-75, the prices got higher and I became even more frustrated. Finally, I […]
