Structural Over-Indebtedness Argues For Further Upward Revaluation Of Gold

From the latest In Gold We Trust report: We expect that financial repression as well as wealth taxes in various facets will increasingly gain in importance in coming years. We believe this to be a disastrous strategy, as the redistribution will merely buy time, while the structural problems remain unsolved.

Gold Is The Only Asset Class That Has Held Its Value Over The Millennium

Gold Is The Only Asset Class That Has Held Its Value Over The Millennium

You see these strange massive selling sprees of gold in the cash market. That’s not the way an investor usually would sell. That’s a good way to lose money. Those sellings there clearly were intended by someone to drive the price of the precious metals lower, and you look at who has the biggest interest there and get a pretty good idea where the purchase’s coming from. You may have further of that but the long term trend here is to the upside. Gold is the only investment class, only asset class that has held its value, its purchasing power over the millennium.

Similarities Between 1914 And 2014

As we approach the 100th anniversary of the start of World War I, the (non-mainstream) media is starting to talk about the parallels between then and now. Could it be true that there are similarities? This article discusses some of the intriguing and disturbing parallels between the period just prior to WWI and today. Understanding these parallels is of utmost importance, not only because the events leading up to WWI are also the indirect cause of the Second World War, but they are important to understand the similar problems we could be facing today.

Geopolitical Tensions are Supporting Gold Prices in the Short and Long-Term

Geopolitical Tensions are Supporting Gold Prices in the Short and Long-Term

With slowing growth and rising inflation, I wonder what central bankers will do next. So far, all they have done is create an ocean of credit that is acting as a lifeline to bankrupt countries and financial institutions. And, if the central banks stop printing, these institutions will be in serious trouble. On the other hand, the inflationary effects of their monetary policy are starting to be felt all over the world. So if central banks keep printing, they will do even more damage to their currencies and anyone who uses them. I am very happy that I own physical gold and silver.

US GDP Per Capita In Gold Ounces

US GDP Per Capita In Gold Ounces

The US GDP per capita vs gold ratio expresses the economic output per capita in gold, in other words in “real money.” It is interesting to observe that the US is currently generating economic output at the low end of long term standards. It is also interesting to observe that this period of time is similar to the ones in the 30ies (the Great Depression). Maybe that latter sheds some light on the “unreal” feeling that most people have in today’s economy.

Gold Prices Benefit From Economic Sins

Gold Prices Benefit From Economic Sins

Governments, such as the United States, United Kingdom, Europe, and Japan, spend their paper currencies as if tomorrow will never come. They act as if they believe debts can increase forever, more money will always be available, and debts can be rolled over forever. A recent US vice-president even stated that “deficits don’t matter.” Such economic sins may help the financial elite but they ultimately hurt most people and most economies.

Why The Gold Price Rose $50 On Thursday June 19th

Why The Gold Price Rose $50 On Thursday June 19th

As I started writing in these pages in 2014, inflation is becoming a real problem in America. Years ago, I started writing about how all this money the Federal Reserve is creating out of thin air would become inflationary. That’s exactly what is starting to happen now. I have said it many times before: inflation in the U.S. economy is going to be a major problem. Gold is the best hedge against inflation. That’s why it’s an important part of any investment portfolio.
