The coming credit crisis will be the catalyst for China to adopt gold into their monetary system, Alasdair MacLeod tells Silver Doctors…

Alasdair MacLeod, Head of Research at GoldMoney, interviewed by Elijah Johnson of Silver Doctors

The coming credit crisis will hurt China’s economy the worst, MacLeod says.┬áHe proposes that China should issue a perpetual bond. The coupon on that bond would be payable in Yuan or gold at the users choice. If this were to happen, it would undermine the Dollar and send gold higher.

Why does MacLeod believe China is headed toward a gold standard? He gives many reasons including: China has been acquiring gold, is the largest gold miner in the world, doesn’t allow gold to leave, and has the biggest physical gold delivery market.
