    What is Silver Tarnishing and What Causes It?

    Tarnishing, also called toning, is an effect on the outermost layer of a metal that causes the metal to become discolored.

  10. Jim Rickards: CIA Shill Who Cries Wolf?

    Jim Rickards: CIA Shill Who Cries Wolf?

    These days online, it is pretty commonplace to see negative name-calling instead of polite well-considered discussions.

    Some of the alternative financial media's most naysaid targets are often those receiving the most attention. Much of the highest levels of vitriol get reserved for those few who make compelling arguments against a passionate group’s biases or even delusions of financial market grandeur.

    Enter best-selling financial author, James G. Rickards. Perhaps one of the modern gold market's most well-studied and well-spoken proponents. One who does an excellent job of boiling down the complex with helpful metaphors.
