COMMENTARY—ProspectingJournal.com—Well, it has been nice knowing all of you, whoever you are. Indeed, we had fun while we could—spending those hard-earned dollars on paying back credit cards, kicking our own personal cans down the road, living beyond our means thanks to third-world sweatshops and oil. Ah, the pursuit of happiness and the American dream. I’m [...]

COMMENTARY–ProspectingJournal.com–A short while ago, we issued an article on the gold boom in Nicaragua and the bright future this precious metal faces as a result of the global economic turmoil.

Conspiracy Meets Fact: The Rising Acceptance of “Underground” Theories

July 11, 2011 by · Leave a Comment 

COMMENTARY—ProspectingJournal—It didn’t take long, upon my entry into the world of stock markets, mining and economic theories, to get wrapped up in the what ifs and whys. Industry leaders, influential commentators and established websites, while perhaps conservative in their thinking years ago, now have one thing in common: a rising tolerance, and even acceptance, of what used to [...]

COMMENTARY—ProspectingJournal—If China’s recent interest rate hikes, Greece’s debt fiasco, America’s upcoming double dip, and Portugal’s acclaimed “junk” rating should teach the average Canadian one thing, it’s that perhaps now is not a good time to take out a large mortgage for that waterfront condo. There’s enough financial armageddon stories out there to attract even those [...]

COMMENTARY—ProspectingJournal—It seems that every generation has its great defining moments, ideas, and conflicts. The storming of the Bastille, the birth of Communism, WWII, The Great Depression, the list goes on. Often, these events create movements that stand for the pursuit of something, such as freedom from oppression and overall bad guys . . . Yet, for my generation, our current quest for [...]

COMMENTARY—Prospectingjournal.com—The US debt has skyrocketed to such a ridiculous level that it’s almost tempting to cheer it on, like when you near the rain-record in summer and actually start rooting for it, despite the misery. Well here I am in Canada, nervously standing on top of a nation that, proudly or not (I‘m guessing not), [...]
