Brutally honest assessment. The only thing propping up this false economy is faith in the dollar. Once that is totally eroded by the Fed's actions it will be game, set, match. Our economy is being propped up by monetization of the debt, by the Fed, and massive deficit spending, enabled by the Fed's zero interest rate policy. Washington seems to think this can go on indefinitely without adverse consequence. The laws of economics can be ignored, but the consequences of violating them cannot be put off forever. The entitlement society favored by Obama will collapse at some point, and there will be lots of hungery, and angry, folks who have forgotten how to take care of themselves.

This task is best left to family, private individuals and organizations and foundations, and churches, not government at any level.

Even today, scientists still do not agree how gold was created. 

They do know that...
