Are you familiar with the London Center for Policy Research? Perhaps you should be.
The London Center for Policy Research (LCPR) has been organized to engage in research on the key policy issues of our time: national security, energy and risk analysis.
It is the mission of this Center to challenge conventional wisdom where appropriate, add texture to the current deliberations on policy issues and build support for positions that further the national interest and the interest of key allies.
Yesterday they posted an article by Herb London that focuses on our government, our culture and where America is headed. I’m not personally trying to be political here, but the article points out “real issues.” You can decide who were responsible for the policies that changed the world that we live in.
I am featuring the LCPR article today below. It is not economic. I’ll leave the economic and precious metals discussion for Andy Hoffman and Bill Holter. I’m dealing with bigger issues. The world we live in today was unimaginable when I left college in 1964 – and I’m not talking about the massive changes in technology.

There was a time not so long ago when I could select my own doctor. There was a time when I could choose my health insurance company. There was a time when everyone believed Marxism was a failure, an idea relegated to the ash heap of history. There was a time when class warfare occurred in other places far away, but Americans believed in opportunity, not sponging from others.
Was that really not so long ago? It is true President Obama said he would transform America. He has lived up to his promise. Our Constitution has been twisted into an unrecognizable document. Washington has become a lawless town where criminals are heroes and heroes are ignored. Peace through strength – the bipartisan belief that military preparedness preserves order – has been converted into peace through prayer. If you hope for the best, it just might occur.
Here is a short primer on bail-in by Gold Silver Worlds below, how it works and how it will affect YOU. It is also a clear discussion of money and debt. It is a very good read!

The bank bail-in rumble is growing louder. After the events in Cyprus, a small country and potentially meaningless in the eyes of most people, it seems that bail-in idea has spread like a virus across the Western world.
Only in the last week, we saw the following developments:
- Slovenian parliament has approved bank bail-in rules. (source)
- The leader of the Eurogroup Working Group (Thomas Wieser) revealed that the eurozone should introduce bank bail-in rules from 2016, as reported by the German Der Spiegel. (source)
- UK based Co-operative Bank announced a bondholder bail-in rescue plan. (source)
All these events come right after the IMF super tax proposal of 10% on savings accounts of households with a positive net worth in Europe (reported on this site) earlier this month.
