Re: Ticker symbol for gold?

On my lookup it was labeled as June 19 future price, but maybe it's a current price. Either way it should be good for my needs.

Re: Gold Purchase!

The Perth Mint ETF for ease/convenience/expense ratio; and the inconvenient but still valuable ability to show up in Perth and get gold handed to you. Bullion coins from a dealer or dealers of your choice. Just "enough to get by". Like maybe peaking at 80 ounces IMO. This part all depends on your ri...

Re: Dalio on MMT

Yeah, that's what we need. Economists running the country. Deciding who wins, who loses. Essentially setting the prices for everything. With all of the cronyism, special interests, front running, and perverse incentives that will go along with it. But, smart people will be running it, what could pos...

Re: Time to Return to the Gold Standard?

Yeah, I cannot image what the world would look like if our monetary system implodes. Before the digital age, it might have been survivable. Now, it would be about like Venezuela, I think.

Re: Time to Return to the Gold Standard?

I cannot see it ever happening except after the economic singularity when all currencies have gone to zero, maybe more than once, and we are in a spot where only real things are trusted for value and exchange. It would take a very long tail event to get there. :)

Re: BOJ Largest Shareholder of stocks

Don't forget the beneficial effect on pension plans of propping up stock prices. Can developed countries even afford a 10 to 15 year bear market? The seas look benign right now, but somewhere out there be dragons.
