Why Austrian Investing Is Important In The Era Of State Imposed Fiat Money

In sum, this book is to date the most comprehensive attempt at a critical examination of today’s investment universe from the perspective of the Austrian School and deriving conclusions for investors from it. To this end, we frequently move back and forth between theory and current practice. The difficulty of connecting these two worlds will become clear to the reader as the book progresses: the relationship between taking the time for slow and deliberate reflection and the pressure and urgency that characterize investing in financial markets under distorted and volatile circumstances.

Printing Money without Borrowing

Printing Money without Borrowing

We come to the key point; if the quantity of money is not the whole truth, then what is? The whole truth is that it’s the quality of money that counts. Gold and Silver have quality that cannot be denied or destroyed. Paper has only an illusion of value. When the Emperor’s spear falters, so does the illusory value of his chits. The Petro Dollar is faltering. The Empire of Chaos is faltering. Change your Fiat paper promises for some real money before it’s too late.

We Are In A Transition To A Multi-polar Currency System

We are currently in a transition period to a multi-polar currency system. The period of dollar dominance appears to be slowly but surely coming to an end. In the wake of Russia and China significantly strengthening their strategic alliance in recent months, it appears as though Western sanctions have heralded a new round in the struggle over the global monetary architecture.

The Circle of Gold

The Circle of Gold

Gold has been money and a store of value for at least 3,000 years. That status SHOULD return after the “paper” era has collapsed. Unbacked paper money, according to history, always collapses due to excessive printing by central bankers and politicians. Imagine that! Global debt is over $200 Trillion and rapidly climbing. Governments must borrow more currency into existence to pay off maturing debt, but total debt inevitably increases. Charles Ponzi used a similar scheme for his wealth transfer process.

Russia and China Increase Gold Holdings As Central Banks Continue Loose Monetary Policies

Negative Interest Rates And Cashless Society Are Theft

Negative Interest Rates And Cashless Society Are Theft

Monetary Policy Playing With Fire: Inflationary Momentum Cannot Be Controlled

Monetary Policy Playing With Fire: Inflationary Momentum Cannot Be Controlled

We are currently witnessing one of the greatest experiments in human history. History teaches us: Neither mainstream economics nor central bankers are aware of how to control the specifics of inflationary dynamics. The pitiable attempts to regulate the level of inflation like a thermostat are testament to the hubris of monetary policymakers. Waves of price inflation happen unexpectedly and in very compressed time periods. As the following chart shows, this is confirmed by numerous historical episodes.

China’s Secret Gold Hoarding Strategy

China’s Secret Gold Hoarding Strategy

China may never establish a model sound money system; nor is that its goal. China simply appreciates the universality of gold. And, as the saying goes, “gold goes where it’s most appreciated.” Whether you’re a Communist or a capitalist, whether you speak Mandarin or English, gold remains the one permanent, immutable common denominator. Gold’s value has been recognized universally for hundreds of years and will continue to be recognized universally regardless of whatever market gyrations or economic or political strife the future may bring.

Greece Needs Money? Money DOES NOT EXIST!

Greece Needs Money? Money DOES NOT EXIST!

At one time, Federal Reserve Notes were specie-backed, just like real United States Notes that were backed by silver and gold.

Texas Gives Wall Street Bankers the Gold Finger

The story will bear close watching as HSBC and the New York Fed prepare for Texas to take actual delivery down the road. Texas’ gold holdings are reported to now total $1 billion in value.

Suicidal Credit-Based Money System

Suicidal Credit-Based Money System

Governments and central banks have been able to “extend and pretend” by printing a few $Billion or $Trillion to keep the system working, which maintains the money flow to the political and financial elite.
