We work with academic, medical, and experiential experts to develop and publish new resources, as well as to improve and increase access to already existing resources.

$10 million in Silver Bars strewn across the Interstate

http://silverunderground.com

An armored trucked crashed along Interstate 81 and spilled out its cargo of $10 million in silver bars. I thought those armored bank trucks were made of sterner stuff, but carrying that much weight, I guess it’s more likely the silver broke out than the crash broke in. I bet a truck carrying $10 million in paper would have been just fine.It’s a pretty good metaphor. If you think of the controlled economy as an armored truck, when this thing crashes paper money crashes with it, but silver breaks free. It has economic momentum.

Turkey Skirts Iran Sanctions with Gold

http://silverunderground.com

The Wall Street Journal report calls the Turkish gold payments a “loophole in Western sanctions” which ban Iran from receiving payments in US dollars, but it’s far more than that. A “loophole” at least operates within the framework of the policy. Abandoning the US dollar to circumvent the entire policy is a thumb in the eye to US legitimacy, and the global banking system.

China plots against the dollar hegemony

http://www.examiner.com

According to a leaked cable the increase in China’s gold reserves is intended to “kill two birds with one stone.” Firstly, it serves as a model for other countries to encourage reserving more gold, and therefore less USD.
