When Gold Does Beat Paper

Negative interest rates, cash ban, gold ban, private cash hoarding, cash hoards under Swiss soil – these are all concepts we would have considered figments of a sci-fi writer’s imagination not long ago. Come what may, it will not be easy: neither for the interventionists and control freaks trying to keep a lid on the consequences of their own doings, nor for the people trying to lead a normal economic life without massive restrictions.

Suicidal Credit-Based Money System

Suicidal Credit-Based Money System

Cash Used By Banks In Latest Act Of Financial Repression

Governments and banks around the world are making it more difficult to save and transact with cash in their latest attempt to financially suppress their citizens. Their goal is to force you to deposit cash and charge you interest as well as having total control over the money on deposit.
Not surprisingly, the reason given was to “fight terrorism!” The war on cash is proliferating globally. Recently, the Swiss National Bank implemented negative interest rates without first solving the “problem” of how to prevent cash from fleeing the banks. And as to be expected, prudent depositors started doing some calculations.

Can Gold Save The World From the Credit Bubble?

Can Gold Save The World From the Credit Bubble?

The credit bubble has grown so large that the supposed central bank gold would have to be valued at $40,000 to $80,000 per ounce to back all the debt. Revaluing gold higher by a large factor may become necessary in the future to reestablish confidence in currencies. However a revaluation certainly will not be welcomed by central banks, governments, or most individuals. The transition to $80,000 gold, or even $10,000 gold, would be very traumatic.

Debt Bubble: Twilight Zone Economics

Debt Bubble: Twilight Zone Economics

When debt is rolled over and never repaid, how much is the debt truly worth? Would you lend money to someone who assured you he could only repay the debt by borrowing a larger amount from another person? Clearly not, but this is normal in modern “twilight zone” finance.

Silver and Gold Will Thrive Beyond Exponential Growth of Debt

Silver and Gold Will Thrive Beyond  Exponential Growth of Debt

Systems will reset and change when exponential growth at current or reduced rates becomes impossible. The transition is likely to be difficult, dangerous, and the ensuing trauma will not fade quietly into the night. Exponentially increasing debt supported by nothing more than exponentially increasing promises will end in national and/or global disaster. When the reset comes, and it may be years away, would you rather hold assets that are based on debt, trust in a possibly insolvent counter-party, and denominated in the currency of an increasingly insolvent government and central bank . . . . or physical gold and silver?
