The Economic Collapse

The Economic Collapse
Do you think that the price of food is high now? Just wait. If current trends continue, many of the most common food items that Americans buy will cost more than twice as much by the end of this decade. Global demand for food continues to rise steadily as crippling droughts ravage key agricultural regions all over the planet. You see, it isn't just the multi-year California drought that is affecting food prices.

Monsanto, and GMO Terminator Cannabis Jul-18-2011 17:58 Now Monsanto wants to control and genetically modify your pot seeds... (WASHINGTON D.C.) - Cannabis prohibition has served to redirect human evolution from that of a decentralized agrarian lifestyle and natural economy, to a centralized petro-chemical military dictatorship controlled through the artificial economic will of private banks and other trans-national corporate interests. The next stage in continuing this control is in the regulation, licensing and taxation of Cannabis cultivation and use through the only practical means available to the corporate system, which is through genetic engineering and patenting of the Cannabis genome.

Virginia moves closer to creating state's own currency Lawmakers in Virginia say they want to keep their options open in case the value of the U.S. dollar ever collapses — so they’re considering minting state coinage.

Stock Market Guru Grades - CXO Advisory Can experts, whether self-proclaimed or endorsed by others (publications), provide reliable stock market timing guidance? Do some experts clearly show better intuition about overall market direction than others? We have accumulated reviews of the public U.S. stock market forecasts of various investing/trading experts for more than two years. With approximately 6,000 measurements for more than 60 gurus, including bulls and bears and technicians and fundamentalists, we have critical mass for: (1) assessing the forecasting acumen of the stock market gurus as a group; and, (2) ranking experts according to the accuracy of their past forecasts. This kind of forecasting ability is different from, but may be related to, stock picking expertise. Note that the overall assessment of the stock market forecasting ability of experts in aggregate is far more reliable, based on sample size and duration, than the evaluations of individuals.
