TFMR Podcast #25 - Steve Moore of The Wall Street Journal

33

I met Steve Moore at FreedomFest last month and he graciously accepted the invitation to visit Turdville.

I'm confident that you'll enjoy this podcast. Keep in mind a couple of things as you listen:

  1. Steve is obviously a very nice guy and and I hope to invite him back again soon.
  2. He clearly has a partisan agenda and that's perfectly fine. Most folks do. Just because I think that O'Bomney is a shoe-in come this fall doesn't mean my guests aren't allowed to voice their opinions.
  3. In the brief time we had to speak, I felt it unnecessary to discuss the intervention and manipulation polices of The Fed. My hope is that, should we be able to visit again, we'll cover those topics then.

At any rate, Steve is a well-connected member of the mainstream media and it was a pleasure to get a chance to speak with him.

The Mayor has been busy today!

Good grief, Turd. It's hard to keep up .... and that's a good problem to have. I learn more here by accident than on other websites by design. My biggest problem is getting anything else done. Happily, my bride is out of town. RECESS!

sixth and no medal

LULZ for the great athlete who appears to cover her silver.

Silver is great.

Anyone got the mass of the medal and how much the melt value is?

So, is there a "numismatic" premium on that type of non-currency medallion?

I'm sure there is.

Medal Composition

If I remember rightly, they weigh about 10 oz.

The Gold medal is a staggering, wait for it.... 1.34% gold. (c. 6 grams!)

@jedi

$260 melt?

Ebay: Considering the gravity of the situation, I'd pay $10,000.

Germany and the Nuclear Option

https://www.zerohedge.com/news/referendum-germany-preparing-nuclear-option

This could very well have been in the works for a while now.

Consider that back in late 2011 Fortress Paper, announced the signing of new banknote paper orders at it's Landqart mill in Landquart, Switzerland. Chad Wasilenkoff, CEO of Fortress Paper commented: "Bidding on this volume would not have been possible at our Landqart mill, prior to our recent PM1 banknote machine upgrade, which increased our overall annual production capacity from 2,500 to 10,000 tonnes."

I know paper weighs a lot when measured in large volumes, but 10,000 tonnes of banknotes is a lot of fiat currency! Could this be an order for the new German mark? Very curious? Something is coming to a head. Soon.

Maybe something for Steve Moore to pursue?

Turd, thank you for the podcast. Have a great weekend.
