Something "Unexpected" Happened When Seattle Raised The Minimum Wage

Wow, what a surprise .  The University of Washington concluded that raising minimum wages in Seattle "lowered employment rates of low-wage workers".

...the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco that finds that "higher minimum wage results in some job loss for the least-skilled workers—with possibly larger adverse effects than earlier research suggested."
Gee, the academics and intelligentsia are finally coming to the same conclusions the rest of us peons came to years ago.

US National Debt Clock

More people are becoming aware of the huge US debt bomb.  But what they aren't aware of is the US Treasury has issued so many USDollars that the prices for gold and silver should be astronomically higher, based on the money supply.

If not for the artificial suppression of precious metals prices by the monetary authorities and bullion banks acting on behalf of central banks, gold and silver should be $8,108/oz. and $896/oz., respectively.

ALERT: Early Signs The Public Is Becoming More Involved In The Gold Market

I'm stoked that mainstream retail investment firm Charles Schwab issued a fairly comprehensive letter on gold investments.  However, it's understandable they offer information that is equities-centric, as they sell mostly stocks and bonds to retail investors.  In my opinion, they don't delve deep enough into the hidden dangers of un-allocated ETF's.  They don't even address the potential of markets freezing up, or issue a warning about counterparty risk.  Probably because Schwab is part of the global financial system and would be adversely impacted by a meltdown just like any other financial institution.

For instance, what happens to client accounts when investment firms collapse.  Would direct registration of share certificates be the only reliable means of owning shares of a publicly-traded company?

Also, the article barely mentions the possession of physical gold bullion as the safest vehicle of ownership.  Again, this omission is not surprising.
