Commentary: Make no mistake, brick and mortar retail is dying. And while there has been modest coverage of the topic in recent weeks, it has focused more on the dismal earnings and subsequent shellacking of a few retail stocks. The reality is that this is much, much bigger. We are in the early stages of a seismic shift in the way goods are purchased – a dislocation that has the potential to unleash far-reaching systemic implications and to profoundly alter the U.S. economy as we know it – from basic employment, to commercial real estate, to the stability of the financial sector and the very same banks brought to the brink during the financial crisis. And whether this takes years to play out or months, the end result is the same: The loss of the two largest employment categories by number of workers, combined with an unparalleled glut of unused commercial real estate, is a crisis in the making.
Anyone who has followed the gold market in recent years knows how it performs in times of crisis. Yet, like everything else it would seem, analysis of the gold market has become painfully topical of late, laser focused on the next tweet, or headline, or comment from the Fed, that is going to make it move. The information presented here is a call to dig deeper…to return to the type of fundamental, long-term analysis that fueled prudent (and ultimately well-compensated) accumulators in the early to mid 2000’s. The writing is on the wall – just as it was back then – for those willing to look for it.
Headlines we just have to talk about: Gold Executives Say Good Assets Are ‘Hard to Come By’ – Bloomberg
This year put a lucky angel under your tree!
Coin & bezel pendant includes
18 inch 14-karat gold chain
Legend has it that an earlier version accompanied Napoleon in his quest to conquer Europe. He carried it in the long march to Russia and back until he finally misplaced it — the day before the Battle of Waterloo.
When the coin’s designer, Augustine Dupre, was sentenced to death, he held a gold Angel as he prayed for his life; it caught the eye of his guard, allowing him to ‘negotiate’ his escape from the guillotine.
A truly unique and memorable holiday gift option, this old world French Angel coin pendant comes with an 18-inch 14-karat rope chain.
Only 50 pendants available – $560.00 / each
Price includes insured delivery, display gift box, and ‘Lucky French Angel’ poem scrolled and bound.

A similar story is often told Others will say the Angel can heal
Tells of cures, success and glory
Brought on those who get to hold
A lucky Angel cast pure in gold
Napoleon held close this lucky charm
To protect him in battle and keep him from harm
Victorious he was to Russia and back
As he kept it close for every attack
It was quite some time before the coin was lost
But misplaced it was at no small cost
Waterloo followed the ensuing day
Napoleon was defeated and cast away
Of a guard’s favor that was luckily sold
At the cost of an Angel a man was saved
It was the coin’s designer Augustine Dupres
Can protect from harm its powers are real
So take this Angel and keep it close to your heart
And great luck will follow you and never depart
A similar story is often told
Others will say the Angel can heal
