It’s an amazingly powerful weapon that only the US government can wield—kicking anyone it doesn’t like out of the world’s US-dollar-based financial system.
It’s a weapon foreign banks fear. A sound institution can be rendered insolvent at the flip of a switch that the US government controls. It would be akin to an economic kiss of death. When applied to entire countries—such as the case with Iran—it’s like a nuclear attack on the country’s financial system.
More than three dozen societies for nuclear professionals around the world have signed the 'Nuclear for Climate' declaration, calling for nuclear energy to be recognized for its contribution towards combatting climate change.
On 4 May, during the International Congress on Advances on Nuclear Power Plants in Nice, France, representatives of 39 nuclear societies and technical organizations signed a joint declaration stating

Chances are, you haven’t heard about nootropics yet. They’re still pretty far out of the mainstream. But they’re beginning to gather some steam as they head for the public consciousness (pun intended), and it seems likely they’ll be getting increasing press in the near future.
So what are they?
Wikipedia says nootropics are also known as “smart drugs, memory enhancers, neuro enhancers, cognitive enhancers, and intelligence enhancers,” and “are drugs, supplements, nutraceuticals, and functional foods that improve one or more aspects of mental function, such as working memory, motivation, and attention.”
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.

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. French Finance Minister Michel Sapin stated at the time, “[T]errorism feeds on fraud, money laundering, and petty trafficking.”
And so, in future, people in France will not be allowed to make cash payments exceeding €1,000 (down from €3,000).

In the investment world, there’s no such thing as a sure thing, and if anyone tells you they have such an investment, you should run the other way. Fast. But sometimes, the odds are so clearly stacked in one direction that it comes pretty close.
How can one be so sure? Due diligence, of course; the devil is in the details—and so is the profit.
It’s impossible to illustrate this without tooting my own horn a bit, so please bear with me on that. The point of the story is critical to investments in all sectors and should help you with your own.
My sector—my specialty—is mining. I’ve been kicking rocks around the world for more than a decade now,

You’re likely thinking that a discussion of “sound banking” will be a bit boring. Well, banking should be boring. And we’re sure officials at central banks all over the world today—many of whom have trouble sleeping—wish it were.
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.
Rick took at a stance in January that went against many investors’ contrarian instincts. He said to stay away from oil and gas for the time being.
However, Rick has been discussing oil and gas drilling lately in internal broker meetings, as well as conferences.
Does he now think there’s an opportunity in oil and gas?
