Hope versus Gold – Place Your Bets

Hope versus Gold – Place Your Bets

The inevitable conclusion of this article that, over the long term, money supply, debt, and prices will increase until there is a systemic reset or crash. What will endure throughout the inevitable inflation, deflation, and crash? Gold and silver will endure. Paper assets are only as good as the collateral backing them, and many of those assets could vaporize in a systemic reset. Physical gold and silver will survive and maintain their value, while the dollar and Treasury Debt may lose a good portion of their value and purchasing power.

As The Currency War Intensifies, Gold Prices fall…but not for Long

As The Currency War Intensifies, Gold Prices fall…but not for Long

This leads me to believe that there will not be any tapering in the short-term and the major central banks, the US Fed, the ECB, the BoJ and the BoE are going to continue with their expansionary monetary policies and thus debase the value of these fiat currencies. Gold prices will continue to be volatile and the sideways action may continue for several more weeks. However, I believe we will see higher prices as we move towards the end of the year.

A Closer Look At Bank Bail-Ins And The Black Hole Of Our System

A Closer Look At Bank Bail-Ins And The Black Hole Of Our System

This is exactly what happens every time when a bubble collapses because the cause of the bubble is bank leverage!

US Dollar Appears To Be Fundamentally Weak

US Dollar Appears To Be Fundamentally Weak

The WGC published its latest report on gold and currencies. Based on the main premise that gold is playing an important role as a monetary asset, it reiterates its value as a fundamental store of wealth. It appears that allocations of US dollars continue to fall, a trend that started in 2012. What’s more, plotted against several economic dimensions, the dollar appears to be fundamentally weak.

David Morgan: Only A Major Crisis Could Force Monetary Reorganization

David Morgan: Only A Major Crisis Could Force Monetary Reorganization

David Morgan thinks there will be no global currency reorganization like Bretton-Woods II before the problem manifests at a level that is a crisis. “My take is that governments are not proactive but reactive. My take, based on history, is that after there is a major crisis, there will be a sort of Bretton-Woods agreement. At that time it could be too late though. There could be so much disruption on a global basis that it might be very hard to get things in order.”

Ron Paul: The Ideal Global Monetary System Is One Without Government

Ron Paul: The Ideal Global Monetary System Is One Without Government

Ron Paul explains that the ideal global monetary system would be one in which the government would be out-of-the-way; markets should decide and apply the rules of ’no counterfeiting’ to the people and to the government. Today, however, the Constitution still says – even though they ignore it – that only gold and silver can be used as legal tender.

John Williams: Currency Markets Will Stop Politicians Kicking The Can

John Williams: Currency Markets Will Stop Politicians Kicking The Can

Things could get so bad that gold would go to 100,000 an ounce. That is what would happen in a hyperinflation. The rise in the price of gold is reflecting the loss of purchasing power in the value of a currency (say the dollar). If gold would go up from 1,000 to 100,000 dollar an ounce, it would mean that one dollar would become worht a penny as a currency.
