  • THIS is the Revived Roman Empire!? - (COMMENTARY and News from the Sept. 5, 2016 issue) -- I vividly remember when -- in the late 1990's, as a growing European Union was about to add a common currency,  the EURO,  to its regimen--Dispensationalists and others were loud in the dire warnings of what this meant! We were…
  • The National Investor is Recognized Anew as a Top Stock Picker! - Among the rules/methods that guide my research and advice to my Members, the careful analysis and recommendation of good, often undiscovered and/or unappreciated companies is paramount. And as the mid-year issues of the venerable Dick Davis Digests attest, we hit the ball out of the park with some of these…
  • Obamatrade for Dummies…What’s Next? What’s at Stake? - Posted Sunday, June 14, 2015 Below is a two-part audio discussion of today by your faithful Editor, Chris Temple, explaining this past Friday's convoluted vote in the U.S. House of Representatives which technically derailed -- for the time being -- the granting of "fast track" trade and TREATY negotiating powers…
  • Christmas Message: “The Original Revolution” - Each year at Christmas for some time now, I have shared the accompanying commentary by the late Mennonite theologian, John Howard Yoder. To me it indeed does reflect the truly revolutionary, epochal event of over two millennia ago, when our Blessed Lord was born. Reflect on these words...and on the…
  • Remembering George Hansen - Please indulge this simple effort on my part to remember a great man...a Great American Congressman and statesman...one of my heroes...the late George V. Hansen.  Remembering George Hansen
  • Introducing the Dick Cheney of the Federal Reserve - I have wondered aloud for some time now about the whereabouts of the Vice-Chairman of the Fed, Stanley Fischer. Now we don't have to wonder any longer. Fischer left his undisclosed, secluded location recently to deliver a key presentation in Stockholm, Sweden. And as I write in today's (August 13's)…
  • A “Bail-In” here in America? Not so fast… - Every now and then there are various scare stories that pop up about some type of government confiscation of your savings.  Some say we'll go the way of bankrupt Cyprus, and see the federal government ultimately confiscate savings in a "bail in" to help shore up the government's balance sheet.…
  • China’s “Controlled Explosion” - Having blown what are widely seen as being the world's biggest NEW bubbles (relative to the size of its economy) since the 2008 global financial crisis, China has belatedly decided that it wants to try introducing a measure of sanity into its system. In part, it no longer seems willing…
  • UNDERSTANDING THE GAME - (NOTE: New/returning subscribers will now receive the NEW/EXPANDED VERSION!!) Though nearly a decade old, Chris' "signature presentation" here remains the best primer on the nature of our markets you will read ANYWHERE. Once you have read this, you will know more about what makes this whole crazy system "tick" than…
  • The REAL Cause of Enron’s Collapse - When energy giant Enron imploded in scandal and financial ruin, too many described it as a tale of political cronyism, greed and whatnot. The truth was deeper than that: Enron collapsed because it had turned itself into the poster child for what is wrong with the fractional reserve system and…
  • Real American Heroes - Once upon a time in America, there was a thriving middle class; citizens able to enjoy "The American Dream" because they had good, stable jobs that paid a living wage.  One of the great advocates of "A Square Deal" for his workers was the industrialist George F. Johnson, whom Chris…
  • Why Glass-Steagall HAD to be Repealed - It's been nearly 15 years since this key Depression-era legislation was repealed by a Republican Congress and Democrat president.  The reasons why the banks were pushing for Glass-Steagall to be deep-sixed became evident with the monstrous mortgage and derivatives boom--and BUST--of ensuing years. Chris predicted the course events would take; a…
  • Ithaca HOURS–Community currency alternative to Bitcoin - (NOTE: Chris will be updating the Ithaca HOURS story and adding a LOT to it in his upcoming Special Report entitled "Building an Economic Lifeboat.") Years ago, Chris wrote of a wonderful new--and successful--experiment to create "an economy within an economy" in the beautiful, rolling farmland and lakes area in…
