(NYSE:MON) certainly isn’t helping. But just what are GM crops, and what evidence do we have to suggest that they are dangerous to human health?

Doug Casey: All Banks Are Bankrupt – Head to South America

L: Doug, there is considerable disagreement over the significance of the Cyprus crisis.

The European Central Bank took unprecedented steps. What do you think? Doug: I think this could be the spark that ignites the keg of dynamite under the current financial system.

Peru new Oasis in the Desert – The Olmos Project

Peru’s Olmos Valley might be a desert now, with rare rains and rivers that trickle to life for just a few months a year, but a radical engineering solution for water scarcity could soon create an agricultural bonanza here.

Peruvians Love Mining so why are they protesting ?

Some investors avoid Peru due to some bad press regarding mine protesters. Why because Peruvians are tired of being taken advantage of. But can you blame them ? The government has a regulation called canon minero. This rule stipulates that half the income tax derived from mining must be disbursed to the community those activities take place in. But that wasn’t happening. And as you can expect, people protested. So the protests are geared toward the government, not companies — especially mining companies.…
