Waterford school boy Harry is, in most respects, your average eight year old. He loves nothing more than playing football and playing with his friends. But unlike most 8 year olds, Harry is a lifesaver.

In 2011, Harry' s family welcomed Isabelle, the latest edition to their family and the smallest as she was born premature. Mum, Maria said, "All my children were born premature, so when Isabelle came along at 28 weeks we weren' t surprised and we knew what to expect."

One of the things Maria knew to look out for with premature babies, was a condition known as Apnoea of Prematurity; a condition that causes the baby to stop breathing for 20 seconds or longer. At 8 weeks, Isabelle stopped breathing for the

What is Financial Repression?

Many investors who fled to safe-haven investments in the wake of stock-market uncertainty have become unwitting victims of government policies known as "financial repression." This global environment of low yields and slow growth, most likely to be followed by a period of moderate inflation, can hurt many asset classes and is unlikely to change anytime soon, which is why it's critical to take action.

All around the world, economic growth has slowed while government debt has ballooned to unsustainably high levels. Financial repression has historically involved a number of government actions to reduce debt, including lowering interest rates, increasing regulations and restricting capital movements, while maintaining inflation. The goal is to create negative real (after-inflation) returns and inflate away public debt by forcing real rates below GDP growth.

There are four factors that are working against

John Smiles Qualified Financial Advisor What has happened to Gold?

The price of gold futures for June delivery fell 13% in April. It was the biggest two-session decline in the price of gold since 1980. The most important factor is that global inflation is falling, reducing gold's value as a hedge against rising prices. Gold is generally seen as an inflation hedge.

Investors who bet on an increase in inflation are now reversing their bets and exiting their gold positions at any price.

For consumers struggling to make ends meet, it may seem hard to believe that inflation is falling. The JPMorgan Chase's (JPM) global consumer price index covers more than 30 countries that collectively represent more than 90% world economic output. The index shows that global inflation peaked at 4% in 2011 and has fallen steadily since and global prices in February
