We take a unique approach to economics and the role of gold. The article collections below cover the main economic theories that underlie Keith Weiner’s writings.

Yield Purchasing Power: Most people think in terms of purchasing power, that is, how much can one’s cash buy? Keith argues that rather than thinking of life savings as something to be liquidated, one should think in terms of Yield Purchasing Power.

Theory of Interest and Prices in Paper Currency: These seven papers discuss how interest and prices are set under our current fiat paper system.

Unadulterated Gold Standard: In this five part series, Keith discusses why the world needs an Unadulterated Gold Standard.

Marginal Productivity of Debt: Understanding the marginal productivity of debt is key to understanding whether the amount of credit created is unsustainable, resulting in the failure of the monetary system and the loss of everyone’s savings.

Bitcoin: In this series of articles, Keith covers many of the reasons why bitcoin is unsound and not money and rather the very model of a (post)modern monetary marvel.
