Ben Bernanke - "No One Understands Gold Prices"

Correction Ben no one in the West, particularly that USA bit, understands gold prices (well except the 1% of those in the West that actually buy gold).

Abu Dhabi Gold Rush

One of my clients just sent me this amazing pic he took on his phone whilst in a store in the Abu Dhabi (UAE) gold souk, during the gold price drop in April. He told me that in this pic he could only get one fifth of the store in the shot as there were at least 500 people in and outside trying to get in!

U.S. appeals court tosses injunction limiting indefinite detention


Article link

(Reuters) - A federal appeals court on Wednesday lifted a lower court order that would have prevented the U.S. military from indefinitely detaining people believed to have helped al Qaeda or the Taliban.

The 3-0 decision by a panel of the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York was a setback for journalists, activists and others who had argued that the law put them in danger of indefinite detention.

It was a victory for the Obama administration, which said the practice is needed to fight terrorism.

The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York said the plaintiffs lacked standing to challenge the law.

The provision in question is part of the National Defense Authorization Act, which the U.S. Congress passes annually to authorize programs of the Defense Department.

In the second half, Max talks to Pete Comley, author of Inflation Tax, about inflation, government regulated prices rising the fastest and the pound sterling falling for the past hundred years.
