Here's something sent in by the Ozarker this morning that really rang the bells for me! Makes me think of Matt Simmons and his warnings about Saudia Arabia's oil having already peaked.
the sun is finally out here today so I'm going to wrap it up and go do some weedeating! See you all back here again tomorrow!
Much thanks to RJ at the Global Glass Onion and the Ozarker at Conflicted Doomer , and Doug at 3Es News and David at ETF Daily.
Be sure to stop by their sites and support their hard work!

report puts a harrowing face on the plight of N.J.'s working poor -
You stroll past them in the grocery store, sit behind them at the gas station,
stand next to them at your kid’s soccer game. They look like you, talk like you,
fuss over their children like you. They have skills and jobs like you, and they
seem just fine. They are security guards, child care workers, bank tellers and
cashiers. But they are not fine. They live one broken transmission, one layoff,
one illness away from ruin. And they exist in numbers you probably never dreamed

gold standard and economic growth - Tyler
Cowen acknowledges that the gold standard as implemented in 1929-1932 was a
disaster, But in the interests of promoting a balanced discussion, he asks:
Dare anyone critical of the gold standard bring themselves to utter these
(roughly true) words?: "For the Western world, the gold standard era, defined
say as 1815-1913, was arguably the greatest period of human advance ever, at
least in matters of economics, culture, and technology."
