Fiat Currency Insanity - The Swiss Franc Shocker And TEOTMSAWKI

January 16, 2015

[The following post is by TDV Chief-Editor, Jeff Berwick]

Things are really starting to go off the rails now.  The End Of The Monetary System As We Know It (TEOTMSAWKI) is coming to a rapid, volatile end.  It may not be this year but at this rate it would not surprise us if it was.

January 10, 2015

Hello from Anarchapulco Bay,

This is going to be, perhaps, painfully blunt.  That, actually, is very hard for someone who grew up in Kanada in the 70s and 80s where politeness was driven to the extreme... to the point where not holding the door open for a woman who was literally 20 metres away from the door would result in a beating.  Yes, that kind of passive agressive politeness.

That, actually, is what makes what I am about to say seem against my nature.  For, the craw in my nutsack, or whatever that saying is, is about another Kanadian, Stefan Molyneux.  Or, at least, he lives in Kanada... anyway, that's just geography.
