Arcadia Makes a Difference

Arcadia Economics has dedicated the past decade to bringing awareness to the precious metals industry as a whole, particularly  the silver industry.  The Arcadia team has been on a mission to expose the manipulation, corruption, and outright fraud perpetrated by big financial institutions in order to suppress the price of silver.  

Throughout history, gold and silver have acted as money and therefore are a direct threat to the current dollar based fiat system.  The big banks and financial institutions are incentivised to suppress the true market value of silver because it is in their best interest to maximize their profits by continuing to prop up the dollar and thus their dollar denominated wealth.  Arcadia Economics is determined to expose this fraud in an effort to set the true price of silver free…to its actual market value.

How are we doing that you might ask?  Well, Arcadia Economics, led by Chris Marcus, has done everything from writing a book, to creating a successful YouTube channel, to filing whistleblower claims to the CFTC.  It is all laid out in full detail here. 

The Big Silver Short

The “Big Silver Short” is an eye opening book that teaches the reader all about the wonders and complexities of the silver market.  By chronicling a series of interviews with various industry experts, Chris carefully and concisely lays out the case for why silver is the most undervalued hard asset on the market.

Petition Against JP Morgan

Based on the overwhelming evidence and even legal settlements against J.P. Morgan admitting to the spoofing of precious metals, Chris Marcus took it upon himself to create a petition.  The goal of which is to at the very least bar these criminals from continuing to trade gold and silver on the open market.

Reported to CFTC

In the early part of 2021, Arcadia Economics founder Chris Marcus notified the CFTC on two separate occasions, to the silver market manipulation by filing formal CFTC whistleblower complaints.  These complaints largely centered around the events commonly known as the “Silver Squeeze” which took place earlier that year and how major financial institutions conspired to “tamp down” the rising price of silver.

Caught Rostin Red Handed

During an interview which took place as part of a virtual conference, CFTC Commissioner Rostin Benham admitted that the silver futures market was used to “tamp down” the price of silver.  This admission would have been buried in the annals of time, had it not been for Arcadia Economics discovering this interview and sharing it with the rest of the silver community.
