"There are two sorts of wealth-getting, as I have said; one is a part of household management, the other is retail trade: the former necessary and honorable, while that which consists in exchange is justly censured; for it is unnatural, and a mode by which men gain from one another. The most hated sort, and with the greatest reason, is usury, which makes a gain out of money itself, and not from the natural object of it. For money was intended to be used in exchange, but not to increase at interest. And this term interest, which means the birth of money from money, is applied to the breeding of money because the offspring resembles the parent. Wherefore of modes of getting wealth this is the most unnatural."

“I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the civilized world. No longer a government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men.”

- President Woodrow Wilson 1916

“We are grateful to the Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries.”

How to Think Clearly

"Never argue with stupid people. They will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience." –Mark Twain

If you want to begin to understand and appreciate the work of Mike Stathis, from his market forecasts and securities analysis to his political and economic analysis, you will first need to learn how to think clearly. For many, this will be a cleansing process that could take quite a long time to complete depending on each individual.

The best way to begin to clear your mind is to first move forward with this series of steps:

1. GET RID OF YOUR TV SET (at least cancel your cable)


3. DO NOT USE A "SMART PHONE" (or at least do not use your phone to access the internet)


The cleansing process will take time but you can hasten the process by being proactive in exercising your mind.

You should also be aware of a very common behavior exhibited by humans who have been exposed to the various aspects of modern society. This behavior occurs when an individual overestimates his abilities and knowledge, while underestimating his weaknesses and lack of understanding. This behavior has been coined the "Dunning-Kruger Effect" after to sociologists who described it in a research publication. See here.

Many people today think they are virtual experts on every topic they regard with relevance. The reason for this illusory behavior is because these individuals typically allow themselves to become brainwashed by various media outlets. The more information these individuals obtain on these topics from the media, the more qualified they feel they are in these subjects, without realizing that the media is not a valid source with which to use for understanding something. The media always has bias and can never be relied on to represent the full truth.

A perfect example of the Dunning-Kruger Effect can be seen with many individuals who listen to talk radio shows. These shows are politically biased and consist of individuals who resemble used car salesmen more than intellectuals. These talking heads brainwash their audience with cherry-picked facts, misstatements and lies regarding relevant issues such as healthcare, immigration, Social Security, Medicaid, economics, science, and so forth. They also select guests for interview based on the agendas they wish to fulfill with their advertisers.

Once their audience has been indoctrinated by these propagandists, they feel qualified to discuss these topics on the same level as a real authority, without realizing that they obtained their understanding from individuals who are employed as professional liars and manipulators by the media.  Another good example of the Dunning-Kruger Effect can be seen upon examination of political pundits, stock market and economic analysts on TV.  They talk a good game because they are professional speakers. But once you examine their track record, it is clear that these individuals are largely wrong, but they have developed an inflated sense of expertise and knowledge on topics for which they continuously demonstrate their incompetence.

One of the most insightful analogies created to explain how things are often not what you see was Plato's Allegory of the Cave, from Book 7 of the Republic.

We highly recommend that you study this masterpiece in great detail so that you are better able to use logic and reason.Although we recommend you read and study The Allegory of the Cave, you can get a flavor for its meaning by watching the following video. 

If you can learn how to think like a philosopher, specifically one of the great ancient Greek philosophers, it is highly unlikely that you will ever be fooled by con artists like those who make ridiculous and unfounded claims in order to pump gold and silver, the typical get-rich-quick or multi-level marketing (MLM) crowd.

STOP Being Taken

“Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.”

King James Bible - Matthew 7:15

"It's easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled." –Mark Twain

All Viewpoints Are Not Created Equal Just because something is published in print, online or aired in the broadcast media does not make it accurate.  In fact, more often than not the larger the audience, the more likely the content is either inaccurate or slanted. The next time you read something about economics or investments, you should ask two main questions in order to assess the credibility of the source. Is the source biased in any way?   That is, do they have any agendas which would provide any type of benefit accounting for their views? Most individuals either sell ads on their site or are dealers of precious metals or securities. That means their views are biased and cannot be relied upon.

Is your source is credible?  

Most people associate credibility with name-recognition. But more often than not, name-recognition serves as a predictor of bias if not lack of credibility because the more a name is recognized, the more the individual has been plastered in the media. And every intelligent person knows that individuals who have been provided with media exposure because they are either naive or clueless. The media positions these types of individuals as “credible experts” in order to please its financial sponsors; Wall Street. 

Instead of name-recognition or media celebrity status, you must determine whether your source has relevant experience on Wall Street as opposed to being self-taught. But this is just a basic hurdle that in itself by no means ensures the source is competent or credible. More important, always examine the track record of your source in depth, looking for accuracy and specific forecasts rather than open-ended statements. You must also look for timing since a broken clock is always right once a day.  Finally, make sure they do not cherry-pick their best calls. Always examine their entire track record. 

“Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.”

King James Bible - Matthew 7:15

The above questions require only slight modification for use in determining the credibility of sources that discuss other topics, such as politics, healthcare, etc.We have compiled the most extensive publication exposing hundreds of con men pertaining to the financial publishing and securities industry, although we also cover numerous con men in the media and other front groups since they are all associated in some way with each other. There is perhaps no one else in the world capable of shedding the full light on these con men other than Mike Stathis. Mike has been studying the indistry for well over a decade. Alhough he has published numerous articles and videos addressing this dark side of the industry, the entire collection can be found in our ENCYCLOPEDIA of Bozos, Hacks, Snake Oil Salesmen and Faux Heroes
At AVA Investment Analytics, we don't try to pump gold, silver or equities like many others you see because we are not promoters or marketers. And we do not receive any compensation whatsoever (including from ads) from our content. We provide individual investors, financial advisers, analysts and fund managers with world-class research, education and unique insight.

Media Lies

If you listen to the media, most likely it is costing you hundreds of thousands of dollars in lost money at minimum over the course of your lifetime. The deceit, lies and useless guidance from the financial media certainly is a large contributor of these losses to the sheep you pay attention.

But a good deal of lost wealth comes in the form of excessive consumerism which the media seeks to impose on its audience. You aren’t going to know that you’re being brainwashed or that you have lost $1 million or $2 million over your life time due to the media, but I can guarantee you that with rare exception this is the reality for those who are naïve enough to waste time on the media.

It gets worse. By listening to the media, you are likely to also suffer ill health effects through the lack of timely coverage of toxic prescription drugs or through the ridiculous medical shows, all of which are supportive of the medical-industrial complex.

And if you seek out the so-called "alternative media" you might make the mistake of relying on con men like Kevin Trudeau or Alex Jones. This could be a deadly decision. As bad as traditional media is, the so-called "alternative media" is even worse.

Why Does the Media Air Liars and Con Men?

The goal of the media is NOT to serve its audience because the audience does NOT pay the bills.

The goal of the media is to please its sponsors, or the companies that spend huge dollars buying ads, and in order for companies to justify these expenses, they need the media to represent their cause. The media does this by airing idiots and con men who mislead and confuse their audience.

By engaging in "journalistic fraud," the media steers its audience into the arms of its advertisers because the audience is now misled and confused, so in the case of the financial media, it seeks the assistance of Wall Street brokerage firms, mutual funds, insurance companies, precious metals dealers. This is why advertisers pay big money to be promoted in the financial media.

We see the same thing on a more obvious note in the so-called "alternative media," which is really a remanufactured version of the so-called "mainstream media." Do not be fooled. There is no such thing as the "alternative media." 

In order to be considered "media" you must have content that has widespread channels of distribution. Thus, all "media" is widely distributed and the same powers that control the distribution of the so-called "mainstream media" also control the distribution of the so-called "alternative media."

The claim that there is an "alternative media" is merely a sales pitch designed to capture the audience that has since given up on the "mainstream media."  The tactic is a very common one used by con men.

The same tactic is used by Washington to convince naive voters that there are meaningful differences between the nation's two political parties. In reality, both parties are essentially the same when it comes to issues that matter most (trade policy, healthcare and war). Anyone who tells you anything different simply isn't thinking straight.

On this site, we expose the lies and the liars in the media. We discuss and reveal the motives and track record of the media’s hand-selected charlatans with a focus on the financial media.  

Why Stathis Was Banned

No one has generated a more accurate track record in the investment markets over the past several years than Mike Stathis. Yet, the financial media wants nothing to do with Stathis.

You aren't even going to hear him on the radio being interviewed.

You aren't going to see him mentioned on any websites either.

You won't read or hear of his remarkable track record unless you read about it on this website or read his books.

You should be wondering why this might be. Some of you already know the answer.

The media has banned Mike Stathis because the trick is to air clowns so that the audience will be steered into the hands of the media's financial sponsors - Wall Street and gold dealers.

And as for the radio shows and websites that either don't know about Stathis or don't care to hear what he has to say, the fact is that they are so stupid that they assume those who are plastered in the media are credible. And since they haven't seen or heard Stathis in the media, even if they come across him, they automatically assume he's a nobody in the investment world simply because he has no media exposure.

Well, if media exposure was a testament to knowledge, credibility and excellent track records, Peter Schiff's clients would be a lot happier when they looked at their account balance.

Others only care about pitching what’s deemed as the “hot” topic because this sells ads in terms of more site visits or reads. This is why you come across so many websites based on doom and conspiratorial horse shit run by con artists looking to cash in on ads.

We have donated countless hours and huge sums of money towards the pursuit of exposing the con men, lies and fraud. We continue this mission but we cannot continue it forever without your assistance.

We have been banned by virtually every media platform in the U.S and every website (mainly because we expose the truth about gold and silver).

We have been banned from use of email marketing providers.

The fact is that the Jewish Mafia has declared war on us because we have exposed the realities of the U.S. government, Wall Street and corporate America.

Note that we only began discussing the role of Jews in criminality by 2009, three years AFTER we had been black-listed by the media, so no one can say that our criticism of the Jewish Mafia has led to being black-listed, not that it would even be acceptable.

You can talk about the Italian Mafia, and Jewish Hollywood can make 100s of movies about it...


We rely on you to help spread the word about us. Just remember this. We don’t have to do what we are doing.

We could do as everyone else and focus on making money. We are doing sacrificing everything because in this day and age, unfortunately, the truth is revolutionary. It is also critical in order to prevent the complete enslavement of world citizenry.   

Rules to Remember

On Exposure: No one who has significant exposure can be trusted because those who are responsible for permitting such exposure have allowed it for a very good reason, and that reason does not serve your best interests.

On Spotting Frauds: Whenever you wish to know whether someone can be trusted, always remember this golden rule..."a man is judged by the company he keeps."

This is a very important rule to remember because con men almost always belong to the same network.

You will see the same con artists referencing each other, on blog rolls and so forth.

Fool's Gold (Part 1)


“…the U.S. might continue its trend towards inflation merely due to continued high oil prices and weakness of the dollar. And only after some disaster such as a Fannie Mae blowup might deflation appear. Regardless of the magnitude of any economic correction, the next decade or two more will most certainly be characterized by extreme inflation. A severe catastrophe might usher in a deflationary period as an after-effect, but only after inflation has caused significant damage. Thus, the possibility of deflation will most likely be determined by the sequence of events, as well as the extent of the economic correction, while high inflation is a virtual certainty.”  



Source: America’s Financial Apocalypse: How to Profit from the Next Great Depression (2006)



SOUND FAMILIAR? In fact, we experienced a short deflationary period after the MBS market blew up. Some say we are still experiencing deflation, but they’re wrong. Inflation is alive and well. And I expect it to become a major problem in a few years.

Note that I didn’t use the term hyperinflation because it’s not going to happen in our lifetime. Anyone who thinks otherwise simply isn’t thinking straight. 

Now, I want to warn you in advance that what you’re about to read could cause a temper tantrum, depending on who you’ve listened to and what you’ve invested in. But don’t worry, because after you read this article, you’ll know the truth about gold. And it should help you better position your investments more wisely; that is, as long as you’re willing to accept and act upon the truth instead of remaining in denial.  

After patiently waiting for more than two decades, the gold bugs finally have something to be excited about. The gold bull market is in its eighth year, having soared by 400%. Gold propaganda is everywhere. It seems like everyone is talking about gold, right? Everyone wants to sell you gold, but should you buy it? Keep in mind that this is precisely the kind of activity that signals the later stages of all asset bubbles.


The overwhelmingly predominant claim floating out in the RETAIL investor marketplace (i.e. sheep land) is that gold is a great hedge against inflation.

Much of this propaganda hasn’t come from Wall Street, but rather from various financial websites featuring amateur investors, gold dealers, and perma-bears. These individuals claim you can preserve your principal during inflation and even grow it if you buy gold.

Most of them (as well as the perma-bull market hacks) have also claimed that we entered a secular bear market in 2008.

Virtually all of them also insist that hyperinflation is also coming.

Due to the seemingly endless printing of money from the Treasury and record-low interest rates, there is no doubt inflation will present a very difficult challenge in the years to come, but hyperinflation isn’t going to happen in the U.S; not in our life time anyway.

Upon being flooded daily by the propaganda from the gold bugs, the response from the sheep has been predictable:

“Wow. Gold does well during inflation and we are going to have hyperinflation! That means I can get rich if I buy gold!”


As you shall see, I’m going to demonstrate that these gold bugs, perma-bears and others who bombard the Internet are preaching a misleading story about gold and inflation. Most of them are simply clueless.

Others are intentionally spreading myths as an attempt to manipulate the gold and currency markets. The amateurs represent much of the clueless segment, as do many of the gold bugs.

As far as the claims that we entered a secular bear market in 2008 - Wrong again folks. The fact is that we have been in a secular bear market since 2001. I explained this in America’s Financial Apocalypse, and many times since then. 

ANYONE who claims hyperinflation is a 100% certainty (like Faber, Schiff and the other media clowns have) is a complete fool, or else they’re trying to manipulate the dollar and gold markets so their investment strategies will pan out. Along with the gold-inflation myth, they’ll continue to preach the hyperinflation mantra so as to make you feel compelled to buy gold.

Perhaps they’re trying to create a self-fulfilling prophecy of gold rising during inflation. Sure it will rise during inflation; if everyone believes this myth and buys it! That’s the ONLY force that would cause it to rise and persist at high prices during inflation.

But this large group of extremists and their followers would be fools to think that sheep move markets. Institutions move markets. And the big institutions realize that gold doesn’t do well during inflation. It only does well due to deflation and other relatively short-term crises.

Let me reiterate the main point. Gold is a hedge against DEFLATION, not inflation.

But it’s also a place investors and even consumers rush to during a crisis; basically any large-scale crisis, such as a large-scale war, an oil crisis, or geopolitical turmoil. It just so happens that during these wide-reaching crises, inflation is often one of the macroeconomic consequences. Consequently, most people have wrongly concluded that gold is a direct hedge against inflation without understanding the fine details.

Most investors understand that gold represents a safe haven during uncertain times. Fortunately, uncertainty is often temporary. That’s why the price of gold moves up and down rapidly and over short time frames.

So if you’re not trading gold’s volatility, you’re really missing out on the true action. What do you think the big institutions are doing? Do you think they’re buying and holding gold, or trading the volatility swings? Have a look at the chart and decide for yourself.


I provided an explanation why the price of gold increases during deflation, and often during inflation in America’s Financial Apocalypse.

Let’s have a look at another excerpt from this book…

“While there have been some instances when rising gold has mirrored periods of increasing inflation, much of this behavior has been attributable to factors other than inflation itself. Rising gold prices usually result from a deflationary economy not an inflationary one. During a prolonged deflationary environment, GDP is reduced, leading to a decline in the purchase power parity of the currency. Therefore, buying gold during a deflationary environment provides a nice hedge against relative changes in foreign currencies. 

It so happens that many investors also shift into a gold hedge during inflation, which only reduces the buying power domestically. However, since the dollar is the global unit of currency, inflation also acts to diminish its purchase power parity. And because gold is not linked to any currencies, this might explain why gold is the investment choice for many who are worried about deflation or inflation.  

While the ‘70s and early ‘80s showed a correlation between inflation and gold prices, in my opinion there were many other factors that led to this phenomenon. Not only was the price of oil spiking, but there were numerous global issues causing many to flock to gold as a secure investment. 

Whether gold, inflation, and high oil prices will demonstrate such a correlation again will be dependent upon the overall health of the global economy. If however, oil continues its surge (a likely possibility), gold in fact may mirror the inflation escalation we are seeing and will continue to see over the next several years.   

You may have noticed back in the 2001 to 2004 period when deflation was evident, gold made a major upward move. After a correction in prices in early 2004, gold is again on the rise, but this time it’s not due to deflation; nor is it due to inflation per se.

Currently, the rise in gold is due to the rise in commodity prices, the weak dollar, and the weakness of the U.S. monetary policy. Combined, these elements have an inflationary effect. While significant inflation is certainly present in the economy, it is neither due to nor a direct consequence of the price of gold. Rather, rising energy and healthcare costs, and a decline in total wage compensation are causing inflation. Although many economic experts claim that rising oil prices cannot in itself create inflation, they are absolutely wrong. 

Finally, consider the possibility that the Fed may eventually create even more inflation in order to pay off much of its debt. This would artificially increase the GDP and earnings growth of corporate America. There are some who contend that the government has caused high inflation in the past to pay down debt, and if true, that would serve as a precedent. As final support for this possibility, Bernanke is considered to be an expert in the economics of inflation. Perhaps Washington feels he’ll be able to raise and lower inflation as needed. But they may be in for a rude awakening.”


Source: America’s Financial Apocalypse: How to Profit from the Next Great Depression (2006)



The last paragraph might have stuck out in your mind. Based upon the monetary events over the past year, it appears as if the Fed may well intentionally boost inflation. 

But once again, gold is NOT a direct hedge against inflation. In fact, over a long-term horizon, gold doesn’t even keep up with inflation. I’ll demonstrate this later. For now, let’s get back to addressing the herd mentality because it’s important to understand. 

Why do so many people think gold rises during inflation? 

I call it the “CNBC effect.” When you have hundreds of so-called “experts” pumping out the same message, whether it’s about how “great” the economy is or how the Dow is headed to the moon, viewers (the sheep) will believe it. It becomes a validation by consensus by those lacking the expertise or capacity to think independently for themselves; in other words, 99.99% of the U.S. population. This mechanism of mass propaganda actually forms the basis of certain contrarian investment strategies. 

Even when these networks interview one or two guests whose views oppose the majority of the network’s programming content, viewers vote with their ears rather than their minds. Majority rules; it’s validation by consensus. And it helps create market sentiment.

If people are told the same thing over and over again, they’ll believe it. This is a rudimentary but common brainwashing technique. And it’s used extensively by the media. I call it the flooding approach. And it’s used by the media on a daily basis to sway opinion, emotions and validate news spin. The same effect is now being seen on the Internet due to the rapid growth of financial websites, as well as a spike in interest from everyday investors, searching for valuable investment guidance.

But you should not fall for this trick. The fact is that that majority is usually wrong. This is especially true during times of uncertainty. You need to filter out the noise. You need to start thinking for yourself at a level sufficient to realize who out there knows what they’re talking about. These investment professionals will have an excellent track record, but no agendas or bias. Once you identify this very rare group of individuals, you should follow what they say while ignoring the others.

But you certainly aren’t going to find them in the financial media because they’re paid off by the financial industry (in the form of advertising revenues).

Do you really think they would air real experts with no agendas or bias? If they did, viewers would be positioned ahead of the curve and Wall Street wouldn’t be able to sucker you like they always have. As a result, it is by no coincidence that most of the guys on TV are clowns, fools or stock manipulators, including their so-called “expert” guests. They help preserve the agendas of the financial networks.  This is the way the game is played so I suggest you get up to speed. The problem is that there is often a direct carry over to the Internet and print media.

Those familiar with my track record should understand why everything I say should be taken very seriously. As the facts demonstrate, I have the best track record in the world when it comes to this economic collapse. And I certainly have no agendas or bias. I get paid to be right.

I provide investment research. I don’t sell gold or securities. At the same time, I have real Wall Street experience. So it would be in your best interests to read what I write very carefully, because I’m here to tell you right now; the guys you read, see and hear about the most, are generally clueless. If you don’t believe me, you need to spend more time comparing track records. If after doing this, you don’t see the light, you’re likely to get burned over and over. 

Perhaps now you understand why I focus so much effort exposing the inner workings of the financial media.

In Part 2, I’ll illustrate why gold should never be held as a long-term investment, with one exception. Click here for Part 2.
