Gold, Greece, The Death Of Paper Money And The Modern State

Gold, Greece, The Death Of Paper Money And The Modern State

For those who understand the tremendous financial and geopolitical forces that today are vying not so much for supremacy as they were previously, but for survival; gold remains as it always has been—a store of value in times of monetary chaos and economic distress. In March 2007, I predicted that an economic crisis would happen. It did. That crisis has yet to run its course to make way for the better world to come. In my Dollars & Sense youtube video, . I make another forecast. These are interesting times. Get used to it.

The Price Of Gold And The Art Of War

The Price Of Gold And The Art Of War

When growth slows in capital markets, the bankers’ daisy-chain of credit and debt breaks down; setting in motion defaulting debt which ends in recession, deflation or, in extreme cases, a deflationary depression. A deflationary depression is a fatal monetary phenomena where the velocity of money—circulating credit and debt—falls so low capital markets are no longer self-sustaining. This happens after the collapse of massive speculative bubbles such as the collapse of the 1929 US stock market bubble which resulted in the world’s first deflationary depression, the Great Depression of the 1930s.

The Price Of Gold and The Art Of War

Only fools and the ideologically impaired believe that today’s capital markets are free. In free markets, prices are determined by supply and demand. In capital markets, supply and demand considerations are subordinated to capitalism’s increasingly dysfunctional monetary menses, i.e. credit flows, emanating from central banks. Of all markets, today’s gold markets are the least free. Based on history, we know that gold will soon again experience a meteoric rise in spite of government attempts to the contrary.

Smart Money, Dumb Money And Your Money

Smart Money, Dumb Money And Your Money

We are in the end game, where paper promises have replaced the stability of gold and silver. The consequences are there for everyone to see. Equity markets, bond markets, commodity markets have all been poisoned by today’s excessive levels of credit and debt. Gold and silver are the barometers of systemic financial distress. The bankers’ have done their utmost to disable the most telling indicators of their present disarray and imminent demise. Don’t be fooled, however. In the end game, gold and silver are not investments.

How This Monetary Experiment Will End

How This Monetary Experiment Will End

Central banks around the world are now printing money virtually out-of-thin air, virtual money, in order to provide the requisite liquidity that severely stressed capital markets require. This money, however, never reaches the economy-at-large. It is instead fueling asset bubbles in global stock markets sparked by the speculative frenzies induced by the bankers’ excess credit.

Is Quantitative Easing The Killer Solution?

Is Quantitative Easing The Killer Solution?

If the 2000 collapse of the US dot.com bubble was an economic heart attack, the 2008 economic collapse was a stroke, a stroke so severe that the usual central bank response, to lower interest rates, did nothing to revive economic growth. The ongoing economic crisis is only part of a much larger and far more significant paradigm shift. Gender, cosmic polarities, institutions, cultures and consciousness will all be affected. These are dark times but it is also true that it is darkest before the dawn.

2014 The End Of The Beginning

Ponzi-financing is the final stage in the bankers’ 300-year old ponzi scheme. An extreme deflationary collapse is about to take away all what credit created and the take-away will not be easy for those attached to the world that is passing away. The global economic collapse along with increasingly severe earth changes, e.g. record heat, record cold, earthquakes, drought, floods, etc., are the trigger events for a paradigm shift of cosmic proportions. The rebalancing of universal polarities is underway. A better world is coming.

The FED’s Forked Tongue

The FED’s Forked Tongue

Ben Bernanke is a one-trick pony and running the printing presses, i.e. bond buying, is Bernanke’s only trick. Bernanke, a central banker, however may have a less transparent motive in mind. Bernanke knows the Fed’s bond-buying has led to speculative bubbles around the world. But Bernanke also knows that without the Fed’s continuing lifeline, US demand would plummet sending the world into perhaps another deflationary depression.

Gold: Who’S Selling, Who’s Buying, Who’s Lying

Gold: Who’S Selling, Who’s Buying, Who’s Lying

The international monetary system based on credit and debt is, in truth, a confidence game in which gold was once a critical component. But when ties between paper money and gold were severed in 1971, confidence in the bankers’ paper money began to falter; and, today we are witness to what happens when confidence in a global confidence game begins to evaporate.

The Price Of Gold In The Cold-Gold War

Today, the West and its bankers are desperately hoping to prevent a hyperinflationary collapse of paper money should confidence in fiat paper money evaporate. Russia and China, however, are preparing for that very day; they are stockpiling gold as fast as they can in anticipation of a coming currency crisis triggered by the West’s increasingly suspect paper money.

America Learns The Hard Way: Guns, Global Warming, Money Printing

Erroneously believing themselves the cause of their good fortune, Americans continue to deny a changing world In 2006, when I began writing my book on the coming economic collapse, I didn’t know what the Fed would do regarding liquidity. At the time, whether the Fed would raise or lower interest rates was a soon-to-be multi-trillion dollar question. In the past, central banks walked a tightrope between higher and lower interest rates. Raise rates too high and economies would slow and/or contract. Keep rates are too low and inflation would result. Today, the central bankers’ monetary tightrope has become a gangplank. On December 12th, Fed Chairmen Ben Bernanke announced the Fed […]

The Gold Market Seen Through A Glass Darkly

The Gold Market Seen Through A Glass Darkly

No matter what confidence game is being run, confidence is the necessary pre-requisite. This is why confidence indicators are so closely monitored by central bankers. If consumers and businesses lack confidence, they will not partake of the central banker’s credit; a necessary step in the indebting of otherwise willing victims. The credit trap is at the core of the bankers’ ponzi-scheme of credit and debt; and although today’s markets are awash with liquidity, bankers are increasingly loath to lend and customers are increasingly reluctant to borrow. Central bankers are well aware of the precarious health of their illicit franchise.  Credit and debt-based economies must constantly expand to pay constantly compounding […]

2012 Is The Tipping Point – Results Are In, Bankers Lost

It is highly unlikely the Mayan predictions of the end of the world referred to the bankers’ world of credit and debt. Nonetheless, with only one month remaining until December 21, 2012—the end date of the Mayan 5,125 year Mesoamerican calendar—the concomitant end of the bankers’ 300 year ponzi-scheme of credit and debt should not be dismissed as mere coincidence. The world has entered a paradigm shift of immense proportions; and the collapse of the bankers’ economic world is a part of that shift. The bankers’ credit fueled a 300-year global expansion which transformed the world. The bankers’ credit, however, has now become debt which increasingly cannot be repaid. Economics […]

Gold And The Cold War

De Toqueville’s amazing prediction in 1835 about the destinies of Russia and the Anglo-Americans was every bit the equal to those made by his illustrious French predecessor, Michel de Nostradame. “There are now two great nations in the world, which starting from different points, seem to be advancing toward the same goal: the Russians and the Anglo-Americans… Each seems called by some secret design of Providence one day to hold in its hands the destinies of half the world.”  in “Democracy in America”, Alexis de Toqueville, 1835 In the 1830s, Russiawas a czarist empire and the UShad fought its war of independence from Englandonly 60 years before. The idea of […]
