In case you needed any convincing as to why a gold standard is required…
Tax keeps gold from circulating. In other words, the gold tax is the key to socialized money.
We can never have a free market in money if gold is penalized with a tax every time the dollar loses value.
I expect gold’s enemies, as they begin to mobilize and organize, will be cunning enough to see the vulnerability and go for the jugular.
If we want to win, we will need to be armed properly for the fight. This is a battle for ideas, and the most important weapons we can wield are concepts. Preferably razor sharp concepts.
Let’s get it right, starting with a clear understanding of the dollar and of gold…
The new dust bowl has shown itself, as USTreasury liquidity dries up.
Since 2009, USTreasury debt has increased by 87.5% while the USFed purchases have increased by 417%. It is a travesty. The USFed is the bond market.
The USGovt will ride the USDollar over the cliff, as it breaks all global pacts on the Reset.
The entire world will soon be at war with the United States, since the majority of nations wish to establish trade and monetary system upon gold. The rogue will be the United States, in the final boomerang whiplash.
The United States will succeed in isolating 85% to 90% of the community of nations, and thus win isolation for itself. The US faces deep risk of falling into the Third World, as those characteristics appear on every corner and every wall.
2015 has begun with a sequence of rocky events, as unstable factors show their face one by one.
The USDollar will die a horrible death, and Gold will return to its rightful throne.
The return of Gold to its primacy is long overdue.
The forecast for fast acceleration of events into the January month has occurred on schedule. Normally a very big event occurs every several weeks, or every few months. In just the last three weeks, ten have taken place of significance.
The pace has quickened in an alarming fashion. The Great Quickening has commenced.
Something big, ugly, and nasty this way comes.
The disruptive events and pace of systemic breakdown are surely going to continue. The year will go down in history as extremely messy, extremely chaotic, and extremely important in the demise of the USDollar.
Check the 7-year cycle for an amazing sequence that goes back to the 1973 Arab Oil Embargo, the 1980 Gold & Silver Hunt Brothers peak, the 1987 Black Monday, the 1994 Irrational Exuberance with ensuing Asian Meltdown, the 2001 Inside 9/11 Job, and the 2008 Lehman failure.
The Year 2015 will be known for the USDollar demise with full fireworks.
With the acceleration of events in progress and in view, the pressures will grow against the entire King Dollar Court, the corrupt fortresses in Wall Street and London Centre, the crime syndicate hive.
The USDollar will not survive the year.
The Swiss banks and many others have just taken dreadful losses. Perhaps the damage can be concealed for a while longer. Expect more defaults.
When the death of the franc occurs, it will be when creditors flee the currency as they now flee Greek banks.
It is too soon to say if this is imminent, but it’s hard to believe that any currency can long survive the destructiveness of negative interest rates. A whole book could be written on the perverse incentives imposed by this unnatural condition.
This is entirely separate from the losses already occurring and yet to come as the rate continues to move.
I can only conclude by offering my advice to the SNB. It is time to consider what would have been unthinkable.
Issue gold bonds and begin the transition to the gold standard. I don’t think there is much time to waste.
China does not have enough gold to have a seat at the table right now. Think of it as a game of Texas Hold’em. What do want in a poker game? You want a big pile of chips. Gold is going to be your chips. It doesn’t mean that you automatically have a gold standard, but the gold that you have will kind of give you your voice at the table.
So here’s the problem: If you took the lid off and ended the gold price manipulation and let gold find its level, China would be left in the dust. It wouldn’t have enough gold relative to the other countries, and because their economy’s growing faster and because the price of gold would be skyrocketing, they could never acquire it fast enough. They could never catch up. All the other countries would be on the bus. The Chinese would be off the bus.”
So, when you have this reset, and when everyone sits down around the table, China’s the second largest economy in the world. They have to be on the bus.
So the global effort is to keep the lid on the price through manipulation, which is very obvious. I tell people, if I were running the manipulation, I’d be embarrassed because it’s so obvious at this point.
So the price is being suppressed until China gets the gold that they need. Once China gets the right amount of gold, then you can take the cap off.
The US Dollar’s death is imminent if you believe the 2015 forecast of Hat Trick Letter Editor Jim Willie…
The pattern of central bank covering the debt is clear. The lesson is that central banks can apply paper patches to the failed banks, and buy more time, then repeat the process on the next failed bank event. No limit to their bank patches seems to be in force. The banker cabal can continue endlessly since their patches are based on paper solutions, fiat paper money spew, and they control the paper output. They are the masters of the House of Paper.
The paper mache solutions can continue in a seemingly endless manner, but not in the Gold market.
The intervention and suppression in the Gold market is finite. It requires Gold bullion, the physical ingot bars, in order to execute the perpetuated interference and alteration to this financial niche market.
The manipulation is finite, and it is coming to an end.
When the Shanghai shock comes, ALL THE PAPER GOLD STRUCTURES WILL FALL, all the FOREX derivatives will collapse, & all the control rooms will go into panic mode.
Simply put, QE can never be halted or even slowed. The USFed is in a corner, with no policy options, FACING COLLAPSE, with no ability whatsoever to halt the systemic failure in progress.
The USDollar is fast losing its integrity, during a dangerous global rejection episode. Therefore, QE must be exported, the easy candidate Japan. Call it Operation Tokyo Twist.
The King Dollar is in the final death throes, and the entire world knows it.
When the new Scheiss Dollar arrives, the wake up call comes. Its painful devaluations will bring price inflation, supply shortage, social disorder, and shock to the gutted nation.
The Tokyo Twist will be the song on the FOREX dance floor where all the gals (fiat currencies) are ugly, in a desperate contest to be the least ugly.
The new BRICS gold & silver backed currency is at an advance stage in the design rooms, soon to see actual implementation.
The Gold Standard is to be re-installed, euphemistically called the Currency Reset.
History is on the verge of being made.
Our financial system has suffered an escalating series of crises. Each crisis has grown out of the fix applied to the previous one.
The crisis of 2008 was different. No matter what the Fed has attempted, they have not been able to create even the temporary appearance of recovery (other than in asset prices). It’s not merely that growth will be slow, or slower than it should be in some theoretical ideal economic world.
There will be no recovery while our monetary cancer rages, unchecked.
We must rediscover the gold standard, which is the only cure.
Putin kicked out the Rothschild bankers from his country. Putin interrupted the USGovt heroin trade supply routes out of Afghanistan. Like Abraham Lincoln 150 years ago, the elite banker chambers wish to remove Putin and to suppress Russia, but the sprawling nation has joined at the hip with China. Thus Russia cannot be isolated any more than a bear can be bear hugged. The nation spans 12 time zones and is a top supplier of numerous important commodities. The Russia & China bond is growing and will result in a marriage, the consummation being a baby called the Gold Trade Standard.
The King Dollar is being displaced, kicked off its throne. Its squire the Petro-Dollar is undergoing demise. The Ukraine War is the USDollar Waterloo event.
The Saudi rejection of the USD in exclusive oil payments will be the crash heard around the world.
The marriage between the Saudis and Chinese is a process well along, with each month featuring yet another high level conference. The Saudis will make the announcement in the coming weeks or months, as a genuflection before the Chinese, with a hat tip to the Russians. Soon the crude oil price will be set by the Russia-China tag team, priced in Yuan. When the Gold Trade Standard is entrenched, the diversification away from USTreasurys in the global banking system will become a torrent. Bank system practices will follow trade payment practices. When installed, it will cause prosperity in the East and havoc in the West.
The Crash Heard Round the World is coming. The USDollar will be rejected, and replaced by the Gold Trade Standard.
The suppression of gold prices is essential at all costs to the Anglo-American banking interests. The saber rattling and attempts to lure Russia and China into military conflict are about who controls the financial world. Russia and China keep accumulating the eternal currency – gold.
The American Empire and their EU disciples continue to accumulate debt and print fiat currencies.
Has fiat paper ever won out over gold in the long-run?
Change is coming…
The one year gold price chart shows that the US has been on a de facto US dollar gold standard for over a year now.
This means that the US dollar gold price has been “fixed” for all practical purposes at about $1,300.
This is big news since President Nixon closed the “gold window” back in 1971. “Gold window” simply means people and governments can exchange a fixed number of US dollars for each troy ounce of gold.
Now after more than 40 years, the US has re-instituted a new “gold window” dollar gold-standard.
The current economic malaise is the result of the Federal Reserve and the US Treasury Department weakening the dollar in the early part of the last decade. Every major economic crisis–including the Great Depression–is the result of catastrophic government errors. Contrary to Keynesian myth, free markets are not inherently unstable.
The dollar was destroyed by ignorance. The Bretton Woods system created in 1944 was what was called a gold exchange standard: the dollar was fixed to gold and other currencies were fixed to the dollar. Central banks could turn in dollars to the US for gold at $35 an ounce.
American authorities could have preserved the system very simply: the Federal Reserve would sell Treasury securities from its portfolio if gold began to move above $35 an ounce in the global markets and buy Treasuries if gold went below $35.
Instead the US and many other countries wanted to use monetary policy to try to stimulate their economies with easy money.
But you can’t print money like that and maintain a gold standard. – Steve Forbes
