Professor Ken Rogoff of Harvard is a chess grandmaster, world-class economist and author or co-author of several bestselling books on economics. He is also an advocate of negative interest rates, which is a form of wealth confiscation from savings accounts.

Rogoff understands that savers who face a negative interest rate on bank deposits can easily avoid the confiscation by taking their money out of the bank and holding it in the form of cash in a vault or other safe place. To prevent this avoidance, Rogoff also supports the end of cash.

His last book, The Curse of Cash (2016), he proposes the elimination of cash. This would force everyone to hold their savings in the form of digital bank accounts, which would make it easy for the government to spy on every transaction and impose negative interest rates.

You would think that the enemy of cash would also be the enemy of gold. Not true! As shown in this article, even the sworn enemy of cash has a soft spot for gold.

Rogoff writes, “As a hedge, gold has enormous value. You never know what’s going to happen and when something really bad happens, gold is probably going to be worth a lot to you.”

The climate alarmists have grabbed most of the headlines for the past ten

Political analysts use polls, betting odds, historic trends and other inputs to make their (usually wrong) political predictions. We all remember that “experts” said Hillary Clinton would win the presidency in 2016 (they gave her a 92% chance on the morning of the election), and that the UK would vote to “remain” in the EU

KRUGMAN SHOWS HE KNOWS LITTLE ABOUT ECONOMICS AND LESS ABOUT FINANCE

We already knew that Nobel Prize winner Paul Krugman knows almost nothing about economics. Now, we see from this article that he knows nothing about banking either. Krugman claims that the repeal of Glass-Steagall and the actions of banks in general were not the cause of the 2008 financial crisis. The conventional wisdom is that Lehman Brothers,
