"There is no means of avoiding a final collapse of a boom brought about by credit expansion. The alternative is only whether the crisis should come sooner as a result of a voluntary abandonment of further credit expansion or later as a final and total catastrophe of the currency system involved."

Have a Good Weekend, and Here's Some Bruce

I figured I'd finish the week off with some music.  Not just any music... but something that captures the times we live in.  Bruce Springsteen is America's Bard - the rare storyteller that can fuse music and lyrics to describe the difficult plight of the common man yet still lift the human spirit.  Enjoy.

By the way, Bruce Springsteen briefly speaks to the crowd in Catalan.  This is the translation in English:  "I wrote this song about the Vietnam war, tonight we sing it as a prayer for peace."

Did you know Jim Rogers used to be a roadie for The Boss?

He won a contest and they toured together for a couple of weeks.

There used to be a picture of them together but it got pulled.

Have a good weekend and keep up the good work.

Really?!! Now there's another reason to be envious of Jim Rogers. Thanks for your support and for visiting the blog, and enjoy your weekend too.

Hi Pete - auCanary? I like that. I'm guessing by that name you mean gold as a barometer/warning? Am I overthinking this? Anyway, thank you for the kind words and thanks for visiting!
