The most insidious form of theft
Lack of logical foundation
President Richard M. Nixon announced on August 15, 1971, that the U.S. would no longer officially exchange dollars for gold and many are still referring to that decision as one of the biggest mistakes ever. Nixon, for one, thought gold-price stability was bogus.
It has since become clear why he went off the gold standard. A good controlling factor over the monetary system would be the price of gold. The implications; conduct monetary and fiscal policy such that the gold markets are content to sit tight, and marvel at the economic results.
Do otherwise, and the ordeal of the 1970s will be repeated today. Rarely in the history of political economy have choices been so stark, so obvious. One wonders whether it is being done on purpose. Which as we know is actually the truth.

From Recaps comment Section:
Leroy: Dr. Clarke,One additional thought, the others (and we know what you think of the others) mention the 90 days within the 2% compliance guideline.
They claim that it started on March 13th which would have it end around June 12th. You state that you believe that it will be ripe enough to pick the fruit the end of May which would be approximately 2 weeks short of the 90 day compliance guideline.
What is your best take or Illogical Opinion on this particular topic of impeding situations? Could the baby arrive 2 weeks earlier then what the guidelines would require, if in fact the guidelines are required?
Just some thoughts! In the Virginia Slims commercial they always said "You've come a long way baby!" That my friends we have. How I would love to have a party on the patio around the 4th of July! (allowing for time to plan)
DR. CLARKE (5-17-18): Leroy: NO......90......DAYS. Nonsense.
GreatlyBlessed: How Much Money Do You Need to Be Wealthy in America?....
A few million should do it. But for some, it’s not just about the cash—it’s what you do with it.

Many Americans cite leading a stress-free life and having “peace of mind” as their personal definition of wealth. That doesn’t sound too money-centric on the face of it—until you consider that money, or specifically the lack of it, is a major source of stress.
Americans don’t like to admit that assets can buy happiness—just 11 percent of those surveyed for the second annual Modern Wealth Index from Charles Schwab chose “having lots of money” as their definition of wealth.
