Thanks JP. Conversations about gold really go right to the heart of some of what makes economies and societies function (or, dysfunction!).

gold has been described here and elsewhere, as, among other things:

1. a hedge against inflation
2. a hedge against government
3. a safe haven in times of turmoil
4. a recognized store of value that has RETAINED or INCREASED its value throughout the whole of recorded human history - unbroken continuity across cultures, races, nations, empires, and time. What fiat currency can say that? (I wonder what the average life span of a currency is?)
5. an asset that sovereign reserve managers are moving into more and more.

sounds like something worth having.

what IS money?

"Money is an extension of the free-market social order. To the extent that civil government interferes with money, it interferes with the operations of the free-market order. Interference in the area of money beyond the general application of laws governing contracts has more extensive consequences, all negative, than interference in any other area." - Gary North
Great concentrated effort is being made to mask animosities amongst the elites. On the surface by way of media headlines we are fed propaganda pablum by various CBankers that "together" and "co-ordinated" are making things better. The problem with this interference is the current fragility of the "facts" and the credibility of the spouting sources. CBankers are naturally discreet and reluctant to share all information. They are extremely shy of spotlight, even more of scrutiny and even moRE of independent audit. CBankers have never been under so much and such intense spotlight in the last 100 years as they are today. The current GS comedy hour, for example, of appearing to throw a select few overboard is a likely hint at a background of infighting amogst some GS-ers gone wild and family members infesting high levels of gov' t. The potential looming political disorder is palpable. For now NO visible "few good men" of Statesman stature have come forth. IF they are indeed at work and choosing to remain incognito, it is probably because a lot of ugliness - "extensive consequences, all negative" - has yet to happen.

It is well worth concidering what those "extensive consequences, all negative" will be and what challenges but also opportunities they will present and correctly guessing at timing and whether society will become even more draconian and fascist or broken up into clean (i.e. free from obligations) locales possibly including some sort of new alternative Bank issuing gold-backed paper to the current Federal Reserve' s fiat and its associated promises and obligations to pay.

The premise, at the baseline, is and probably increasingly yet will be one of trust and confidence to be re-paid (or be paid) with current FED fiat (Q: would 50,000 DJIA be something to celebrate or cry on ?). It will probably have consequences on millions of individuals: not only on their sence of entitlement and expectations but also their mode of life. Call it advancing "advanced society". It will probably be epic (epic: - : extending beyond the usual or ordinary especially in size or scope - merriam-webster)

FDIC - Another Very expensive weekend
Banks closed in Puerto Rico, Mich., Mo., Wash.
Regulators shut down 7 banks in Puerto Rico, Mo., Mich., Wash.; brings total to 64 this year

Marcy Gordon, AP Business Writer, On Friday April 30, 2010, 10:00 pm EDT
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Regulators on Friday shut down three banks in Puerto Rico, two in Missouri, and one each in Michigan and Washington, bringing the number of U.S. bank failures this year to 64.

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. took over the banks: Westernbank Puerto Rico, based in Mayaguez, with about $11.9 billion in assets; R-G Premier Bank of Puerto Rico, based in Hato Rey, with around $5.9 billion in assets; and San Juan-based Eurobank, with $2.5 billion in assets.

The great disconnect:
Schools, hospitals and jobs are worrying real Britons, but the politicians won't admit it's a problem
Having spent the past few weeks speaking to countless ordinary people, I can report that the gulf is very great indeed - something I call The Great Disconnect - and that, after the economy, immigration is THE issue that worries people most.
Under Labour, immigration has risen dramatically. In 2007, more than half a million migrants arrived in this country - more than one a minute.
