Well that’s it life has come to an end. The FIFA World Cup is over and Wimbledon is finished too. What will we watch on TV now? Hey isn’t there some golf thing on next week? What about Big Brother? Or how about X-Factor, CSI or the not so latest, mind numbing ‘riotous teen comedy’?
Maybe not, maybe we should be a little more concerned with what’s happening in the real world? Read More Here
(WebOfDebt) – How Financial Brokers Became Bookies: The Insidious Transformation of Markets Into Casinos – Ellen Brown
Ever since December 2008, the Federal Reserve has held short-term interest rates near zero. This was not only to try to stimulate the housing and credit markets but also to allow the federal government to increase its debt levels without increasing the interest tab picked up by the taxpayers. The total public U.S. debt increased by nearly 50% from 2006 to the end of 2009 (from about $8.5 trillion to $12.3 trillion), but the interest bill on the debt actually dropped (from $406 billion to $383 billion), because of this reduction in interest rates.

(DailyFinance) – These Numbers Paint a Bleak Picture for Housing
Financial analyst Meredith Whitney recently joined the ranks of those who foresee a serious decline in housing prices in the second half of 2010. Her reason: Banks are starting to unload higher-priced homes in their bulging “shadow inventory,” and with sales dropping sharply now that the federal tax credit for homebuyers has expired, there’s a massive mismatch between supply (rising) and demand (falling).

(MunKnee) – Silver’s Historical Correlation with Gold Suggests A Parabolic Top As High As $714 per Ounce!
Almost 70 respected economists, academics, gold analysts and market commentators (see list below) are of the firm opinion that gold is going to go to at least $2,500 if not as high as $10,000 per ounce (or more) before the parabolic top is reached. As such, just imagine what is in store for silver given its historical price relationship with gold.

(NatInflationAssoc) – Empty Store Shelves Coming to America
The National Inflation Association today issued a warning to all Americans that empty store shelves will likely be coming to America as a result of government price controls during the upcoming hyperinflationary crisis. This morning, NIA released a video preview of what hyperinflation will look like in the U.S.
NIA’s six-minute video released today goes into detail about an event that took place just outside of Boston, Massachusetts in May of this year. This story was widely ignored by the nationwide mainstream media, but NIA believes it was one of the most important news events of the first half of 2010. Although this particular crisis in Boston was due to decaying infrastructure, NIA believes a currency crisis will lead to the same type of panic on a nationwide basis. Video Link Here
