The Circus Is In Town: The official US gold hoard is supposedly 260,000,000 ounces which represents about $300 billion dollars in current value. The SNAP program spends that much in about four years. The US government spends that much in less than 30 days.

by Gary Christenson

A three ring circus is performing – to entertain and impoverish the western world.

Ring # 1:     The Euro tragedy is “extending and pretending” into a Greek drama.

Ring # 2:     Iraq 3.0 is in beta test mode based on weapons of mass propaganda.

Ring # 3:     The conflict in Ukraine is performing flips followed by flops.

Central banks play currency roulette – At least 19 central banks have dropped their benchmark interest rates in the past 3 months

Central banks play currency roulette http://t.co/HVOTzFcbQ9 pic.twitter.com/WvLampX3Ul

— Bloomberg Business (@business) February 27, 2015

Of the 53 central banks tracked by Bloomberg, 19 have dropped their benchmark interest rates in the past three months. Low rates encourage consumers to borrow and spend, increasing domestic consumption. They also devalue currencies, making exports cheaper. That’s good for the countries selling but hard on countries flooded with cheap products.
