Did Rick Rule Back Off of Uranium too soon?

You’ll recall a few weeks ago I sat down with Rick Rule, Chairman of Sprott U.S. Holdings. We discussed uranium.

Uranium has been on a tear recently. Stocks are going up fast in the sector. Even large companies like uranium miner Cameco have seen a double-digit move up in a month. The recent move up in uranium comes as a Japanese court just cleared the way for a re-start of some idle nuclear reactors.

Prove You’re Not a Terrorist

Prove You’re Not a Terrorist

By Jeff Thomas

Recently, France decided to crack down on those people who make cash payments and withdrawals and who hold small bank accounts. The reason given was, not surprisingly, to “fight terrorism,” the handy catchall justification for any new restriction governments wish to impose on their citizens.

Unsound Banking: Why Most of the World’s Banks Are Headed for Collapse

Unsound Banking: Why Most of the World's Banks Are Headed for Collapse

By Doug Casey

This brief article will explain why the world’s banking system is unsound, and what differentiates a sound from an unsound bank. I suspect not one person in 1,000 actually understands the difference. As a result, the world’s economy is now based upon unsound banks dealing in unsound currencies. Both have degenerated considerably from their origins.
