Expect Deflation, Inflation And Hyperinflation In This Distorted Financial System

Expect Deflation, Inflation And Hyperinflation In This Distorted Financial System

Depending on the magnitude of additional “money printing” that the world’s central banks will unleash upon the global financial community, we could see hyperinflation in several countries within a few years. Why? Central banks will try everything to avoid or reverse a deflationary collapse in paper asset markets because a deflationary collapse is “game over” for their credibility, governments, and politicians. They will print and print more and continue to fuel the inflationary boom, and … the bigger the boom, the larger the distortions, and the deeper the collapse.

How The Financial World Resets

How The Financial World Resets

A reset in the financial system seems inevitable. We survived other resets, such as the depression of the 1930s, WWII, 1971 separation of the dollar from gold, 1970s inflation, year 2000 stock crashes, and the 2008 financial crash. The world will survive the next reset. Excess debt, fiat currencies, and “printing currency” are the center of global economic problems. Those problems will not be resolved with more debt and “printing currency.” If central banks and politicians choose hyperinflation, all bets are off regarding how high gold and silver will climb, and how crazy our Twilight Zone world will become.

Twilight Zone Economies

News from the financial world becomes more bizarre every day. We are slipping over the edge into Twilight Zone Economies. Which do you trust? The Twilight Zone of paper promises, politicians, central bankers, and massive, unbelievable, unpayable debt where some investments “pay” negative interest; or gold and silver?

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.

Asia Will Have More Impact on Financial Markets Than U.S. Fed Rhetoric

Asia Will Have More Impact on Financial Markets Than U.S. Fed Rhetoric

Right now, global financial markets are reacting to what the Federal Reserve may or may not do. At the last FOMC meeting, Yellen decided to drop the word “patience” from its forward guidance. As far as I am concerned, the word patience is irrelevant and it makes no sense whatsoever, why this one word from the Fed should have such an impact on global financial markets. But, this is the madness of today that has pervaded these markets. Basing critical investment decisions on garbage rhetoric, lies and deception rather than real, truthful and important fundamental information have become the norm. To me, it is unbelievable that people have attempted to predict the action of the most powerful bank in the world by deciphering the meaning of one word when the fundamentals are so very clear?

Absolutely DO NOT buy gold or silver – they pay no interest and are dangerous, unlike unbacked paper loaded with both currency and interest rate risk issued by insolvent governments.”

Precious Metals Insurance Against Destructive Policies Of Financial/Political Ellite

Precious Metals Insurance Against Destructive Policies Of Financial/Political Ellite

What I find extremely annoying is the fact that while these banks commit just about every financial crime imaginable, the regulatory bodies refuse to prosecute any banker and continue to harass hard working individuals instead. And, many of these individuals have merely taken precautionary measures to protect their wealth against corrupt governments as well as bad monetary policies.

Global Insanity Prevails, But Precious Metals Remain Directionless

Global Insanity Prevails, But Precious Metals Remain Directionless

The timing for any collapse of the banking system and the mistaken belief it will foster a new gold-backed system keeps getting pushed back for as long as smaller governments like Greece, actually all the PIIGS, can be kept subservient to the 1%’s bidding, for as long as the US war machine can keep all the other smaller countries in fear while the US mounts a false flag attack on Russia via the US-induced coup in Ukraine, gold and silver will remain as pawns in these dirty wars. One thing is certain, having physical gold and silver will provide a store of value for those who hold either or both.

The Circus Is In Town

The Circus Is In Town

The US government has consistently increased its expenses from 1980 as shown and since 1913, not shown. SNAP (food stamp) program costs increased erratically and inevitably. This program alone consumes the entire official US gold hoard every four years. Really? Gold prices have increased erratically and exponentially since 1971. Given the exponentially increasing government debt and ongoing military adventures, gold prices will inevitably reflect the declining value of fiat currencies and rally much higher.

Our Freedom Is Endangered

Our Freedom Is Endangered

Liberty is a fundamental human right and the cornerstone of our existence. But in our current world, liberty is being attacked from all directions, whether through higher state control or individuals themselves. Liberty is in search for its protector. Those that value and actively promote the ideals of freedom and liberty are few in such an enclosing environment. In the following article, Claudio Grass, Managing Director at Global Gold Switzerland, ventures into a discussion with one of the vanguards of liberty, former President of the Czech Republic, Prof. Ing. Václav Klaus.

Coming Boom, Bust And Bottom In Stocks, Crude Oil, Silver

Coming Boom, Bust And Bottom In Stocks, Crude Oil, Silver

Exponentially increasing systems cannot last forever. Our problem is that the global financial system is based on exponentially increasing debt, energy usage, population, and exploitation of natural resources. This appears to work nicely, especially for the financial and political elite, in the early years of the exponential increases. However, we are approaching the inevitable end of the exponential increases – perhaps not in a few months – but our systems probably will not last another decade. In the meantime, the plan seems to be “Party On!”

Hiding Economic Misery and Distracting the Masses with Entertainment

Hiding Economic Misery and Distracting the Masses with Entertainment

Government employment statistics distort the true human misery of 102 million out of work – 43 million men and 59 million women over age 16 – who cannot provide for themselves or their families without assistance. Among those who have work, a recent government survey found 57% of all Americans have less than $500 in savings, with 62% living paycheck to paycheck. To keep me calm about these modern evils, I’m invited to mingle with a cheering crowd. The tricky part is convincing me my opinion actually matters, just as citizens in Roman coliseums were invited to recommend thumbs up or thumbs down. They have found for me the perfect circus.

Debt Crisis Worsens: Syriza Wins Greek Elections, ECB Prints More Money, Gold More Valuable

Debt Crisis Worsens: Syriza Wins Greek Elections, ECB Prints More Money, Gold More Valuable

The results of the Greek elections and the ECB’s monetary bazooka are all symptoms of the same underlying problem. Debt is not only destroying the value of a currency, but is also destroying values of a population. Governments have not been “managing” the effects when they acquired the loans, but one way or another they feel the need to “manage” the destructive effects when it becomes payback time. And what is the answer? Simple, creating even more debts and devaluing currencies even further. When one country does this in some sort of hypothecial vaccuum, it could theoretically work. But it does not work at all when all regions worldwide are implementing the same policies, simultaneously. The middle and lower class of society are the ultimate victims.
