Precious Metals Market Report Got Gold?

"GATA has evidence that there are enormous physical short positions in the gold and silver markets that cannot be covered. Because of the decades-long interference with the gold market, we estimate that the free-market price of gold is multiples of the current price."

—From GATA's recent letter to the Commodities Future Trading Commission

The Solari Report

This Saturday night was one of the most fascinating evenings I’ve experienced in a long time. David Liechty and I had dinner with Franklin Sanders and attended a meeting of Tennesseans for Liberty.

Franklin was asked to say a few words on an impromptu basis and he described the average annual food purchases of $200 million + in a county of 100,000 people. He traced how we've evolved from a society where locally grown food used to produce lots of local income and equity. As we moved to a society where food comes from thousands of miles away, income and equity have fallen while unemployment has grown. Franklin then connected the dots between the demise of our local farm income, using chickens and raw milk as examples, with changes in federal and state food “safety” regulations and federal monetary policy.

On Thursday's Solari Report, I'll ask Franklin to walk through this important discussion. Physical health and "healthy" money are intimately connected in both our personal lives and in financial ecosystems. I'll also give a special report on HR 4173: The Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2009.

In our 'Let’s Go to the Movies' segment, we'll talk about Morgan Spurlock’s award winning documentary, Super Size Me. I want to connect the dots in my struggle to find ways of investing in food without channeling investment to GMO and fast food.

Changing Our Lifestyle
The good news is that it hasn’t been all hard times for these lifestyle leaders. Many changes have made their lives better, like adopting a low-energy and local diet, gardening (which was frequently described as “fun”) and walking and bicycling more. More than three-quarters of respondents reported greater happiness satisfaction or personal growth since embracing new ways of living.

The Swaps That Swallowed Your Town
As more details surface about how derivatives helped Greece and perhaps other countries mask their debt loads, let’s not forget that the wonders of these complex products aren’t on display only overseas. Across our very own country, municipalities, school districts, sewer systems and other tax-exempt debt issuers are ensnared in the derivatives mess.
