An epic gold bull market is on the menu for 2019. I’m not talking about a garden-variety cyclical gold bull market, but rather one of the biggest gold manias in history.
This gold mania will be riding the wave of an incredibly powerful trend… the re-monetization of gold. The last time the international monetary system experienced a paradigm shift of this magnitude was in 1971. Then, the dollar price of gold skyrocketed over 2,300%. It shot from $35 per ounce to a high of $850 in 1980. Gold mining stocks did even better.
Today, gold is still bouncing around its lows. Gold mining stocks are still very cheap. I expect returns to be at least as great as they were during the last paradigm shift.

Yikes! Japan has more people over the age of 80 than under the age of 10
Earlier this week the United Nation’s Department of Economic and Social Affairs released its 2019 world population report… and there were a number of very interesting findings:
1) World population continues to grow slightly, but the rate of global population growth is at the lowest level since at least 1950.
2) Global population growth rates are unevenly distributed. Developed nations (including the US, Japan, Western Europe) suffer from alarming declines in fertility rates, while developing countries are experiencing rapid population growth.

The head of the Political Thought Center Ihsan al-Shammari said on Thursday that the responsibility of the Iraqi government and the security forces to protect everyone working on Iraqi soil, indicating that America will not remain silent if the interests of the threat.
"The responsibility of the Iraqi government and the security forces is to protect the lives of those who help the Iraqi government, whether American or other nationalities," al-Shammari told Al-Akhbar.
"This is a top priority for the prime minister (Adel Abdul Mahdi) and therefore it is necessary to have in-depth and quick talks with the Iraqi factions under the control of the popular crowd in order to abide by what the government says and unify the discourse and orientation."
Al-Shammari pointed to "the presence of some statements that do not correspond to the interests of the state," noting that "it was confined at the present time and on the way to the interruption."
Al-Shammari said that "the Iraqi assurances to the United States of America must have a land for implementation because if the interests of America is directly affected will not be silent and will move and this is contrary to the policy of Iraq, which must be consistent position."
