  • The Republican Tax Plan Is Very Swampy

    Authored by Mike Krieger via Liberty Blitzkrieg blog, Unsurprisingly, the Republican tax plan moving forward in the U.S. Congress and championed by Donald “Drain the Swamp” Trump, is very swampy.

  • Why We're Buying Physical Gold with a $1700 Target

  • Gundlach Warns "The Order of The Financial System Is About To Be Turned Upside Down"

    "I'm not a big fan of bonds right now," may seem like an odd way for the so-called Bond King to begin, but in an audience at Vanity Fair's Establishment Summit, DoubleLine's Jeff Gundlach told Bethany McLean, "I haven’t been really [a fan of bonds] for the past four years, even though I manage them, and institutions have to own them for various reasons." Gundlach urged investors to be “light” on bonds. As Vanity Fair's William Cohan reports, Gundlach admitted “I’m stuck in it,” of his massive...
