Safe Heaven Gold Attracts Investments

Decelerating global economic growth

Global commodity markets witnessed volatility last week, during which CME gold futures hit a fresh six-year high of $1454.40 per troy ounce and silver rallied to 13-year high of $16.63 per troy ounce. Silver is outperforming gold after breaking a key resistance of $15.00 on CME, which has resulted in fall in gold/silver ratio to below 86 from an all-time high of 93.45 in June.

A global economic slowdown and an International Monetary Fund (IMF) report that US Dollar was overpriced by 6-12 percent weighed on the equity and currency markets, pushing gold and silver prices to multi-year highs.

The wealth of America's three richest families grew by 6,000% since 1982

Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates and Warren Buffett now have as much wealth as half of the US population combined

Three US families have a combined wealth of $348.7bn. As their generations expand, we are are drifting toward a society governed by the rich. It hardly makes news any more that the US is becoming an extremely unequal country.
Each year new eye-popping statistics juxtapose the reality of decades of stagnant wages for half the country’s workers with today’s extreme concentrations of wealth and power.

London: new cryptocurrency card to pay in local supermarkets

You can withdraw money with your Visa debit “Dragoncard”

A London-startup headed by a Credit Suisse veteran is launching a new debit card that it claims will allow people to spend cryptocurrencies across the UK. The London Block Exchange (LBX) launched on Tuesday. It plans to launch a sterling-to-cryptocurrency exchange and a Visa debit card, dubbed “Dragoncard,” that will allow people to spend bitcoin, ethereum, ripple, litecoin and monero across the UK. The startup plans to add more cryptocurrencies in future.
The Visa card, which will be issued by Gibraltar-based pre-paid card provider Wavecrest, will be linked to an app that allows users to buy and hold cryptocurrencies through the LBX exchange. Customers will also be able to withdraw money using the card. Cryptocurrencies will be converted to sterling at the time of withdrawal.…  Wed., 15  November 2017

A ban of gasoline-powered cars imposed in 2030 says California’s governor

“Let’s ban gasoline-powered cars”

It’s often said that national climate policy is Made in California and now Governor Jerry Brown reportedly wants to ban the internal combustion engine from its roads.
“I’ve gotten messages from the governor asking, ‘Why haven’t we done something already?’” Mary Nichols, chair of the powerful California Air Resources Board, told Bloomberg. “The governor has certainly indicated an interest in why China can do this and not California.”
China is planning to set a deadline by which its automakers must end production of fossil fuel–powered cars. If California did something similar, it would trigger a cascade of changes in the automotive world. Californians buy about 2 million cars a year, accounting for around 20 percent of national sales. Because people in the state buy a big percentage of the country’s cars, the industry designs all American vehicles to meet California standards.
A ban could come as soon as 2030, Nichols said.
