On Board Keynes Express To Ruin
Are the gold bugs among the one in a million who see the root of the problem? Or do they see the capitalists getting rich, and want the same for themselves? They see stocks and bonds and real estate going up, and the capitalists profiteering from it.
Keynes Was A Vicious Bastard
The price of gold went up three bucks, and silver down three cents. In other words, not much at all.
The Duality Of Money
When one earns money, one receives income. One may spend that income, though it is prudent to save some of it.
Is Capital Creation Beating Capital Consumption?
Our monetary system has a falling interest rate, which causes both capital churn and conversion of one party’s wealth into another’s income. It also has too-low interest, which encourages borrowing to consume (which, as everyone knows, adds to GDP).
Is Lending The Root Of All Evil?
As money has been slandered—the root of all evil, etc.—the loan has been demonized as well. And not just because the loan involves money, which is already established as pure evil. The loan piles a whole new kind of evil on top of the root of money.
Central Planning Is More Than Just Friction
It is easy to think of government interference into the economy like a kind of friction.

Work Experience

Monetary Metals
May 2012 - Present (7 years)

Monetary Metals is the pioneer of gold investments. An investment is an asset bought with the expectation of a yield. We developed and manage a fund that provides a yield on gold, paid in gold. This is the first true gold investment since the 1930’s. Investors in this fund are high net worth individuals, family offices, funds, and institutions. The company also publishes analysis of the gold, silver and credit markets.

Gold Standard Institute USA
June 2012 - Present (6 years 11 months)

The Gold Standard Institute, based in Phoenix AZ, is a non-profit educational organization dedicated to spreading awareness and knowledge of gold, and to promoting the use of gold as money. The Gold Standard Institute serves the public and promotes the general welfare through dissemination of gold’s virtues and its role in a society that values liberty and justice for all. The Gold Standard Institute was founded in 2012 by economist and monetary scientist Keith Weiner.

The Theory of Interest and Prices in Paper Currency
Keith Weiner
The Gold Standard Institute

Most people assume that if the money supply increases, then prices will increase. And if prices are expected to increase, then interest rates will go up.

This is the economic equivalent of the Medieval belief that if you throw a rock, it flies straight until it runs out of force, then turns a corner and falls straight down.

This is my theory.

My dissertation.

I prove that all government interventions necessarily reduce the ability of people to coordinate their actions in the market. Also examine the regime of the irredeemable debt-based dollar, and show how it's failing including several indicators.
