[The following post is by TDV Contributor, Wendy McElroy]

Last December, a CBC News headline announced, “Cuba, US to restore diplomatic relations after 50-year rift.” Why now? The answer in one word: Venezuela.  

HUGO AND FIDEL, THE FRICK AND FRACK OF COMMUNISM

Venezuela is at the tipping point of a massive collapse. Grocery shelves are bare, with military personnel stationed at stores. Photographing the empty shelves is now a criminal offense. Even in the cities, it is impossible to find diapers, milk and other necessities for children. Average people will withstand state-created deprivations but they will not watch babies and children suffer.

Gamemaker Watch: Why Bitcoin Crashed and The Franc Spiked

[The following post is by Scott Freeman]

Two events from the past week stand out as particularly memorable. One may or may not be remembered a year from now, depending on how things unfold going forward. The other – the Swiss franc revaluation – definitely will be. The possibly memorable event I am referring to was the spike down in the bitcoin price to $160 / 900 RMB. If we consider the shake-out scenario discussed last week, we did indeed reach the $160 target price level, but the price did not remain under $180 for long. Those who bought at $160 did well, since the rebound went as high as $233.

Fiat Currency Insanity - The Swiss Franc Shocker And TEOTMSAWKI

January 16, 2015

[The following post is by TDV Chief-Editor, Jeff Berwick]

Things are really starting to go off the rails now.  The End Of The Monetary System As We Know It (TEOTMSAWKI) is coming to a rapid, volatile end.  It may not be this year but at this rate it would not surprise us if it was.

Many anti-bitcoiners like to point out the problem with bitcoin is that it is very volatile.  And, they are right, it is an issue.  Bitcoin recently flash crashed to nearly $150 and has now rebounded to over $200 as the Bitstamp exchange has re-opened without problem as we expected.

But bitcoin almost appears to be a beacon of stability compared to what is going on with the fiat currencies.
