Today’s Gold Price Is An Absolute Bargain – Here’s Why

The significant trend change in gold that started 20 years ago is a total condemnation of the central banks and their failed experiments in creating an unlimited supply of money that has ZERO value – a clear indicator that we are now seeing the end of the fiat money system…  …The fall of fiat money started in earnest in 1971 when Nixon closed the gold window…[and has been exacerbated by the exponential] growth in global debt since then {see table below]. This final stage of the fiat money system was first evidenced by gold turning up at the beginning of this century. Increase In Debt …U.S. debt has, on average, doubled every 8 years since Reagan rose to power in 1981…When Trump was elected president in November 2016, I forecast that after the first 4 years the debt would be $28t and 8 years after Trump’s victory, the debt would double from $20t to $40t…Currently the debt is $26.750t and an increase by $1.25t to at least $28t by the time the new president enters office in January 2021 seems very likely to fulfill my forecast. As the graph above shows, tax revenue has increased 6x since 1981 whilst the debt has gone up 31x so…[the U.S.] has been running a real budget deficit virtually every year since 1930 and can only increase taxes at a fraction of the rate of the deficit growth. How can anyone believe that the U.S. economy, with the real deficit going up every year for 90 years, has a chance of survival. Decrease In Currency Values Since 1971 all currencies have lost 97-99% of their value…and, as the table below shows, most currencies have lost more than 80% since the beginning of 2000. The petrodollar and a strong military has so far prevented the dollar from total destruction…[but] a 98% loss of value since 1971 is as near annihilation as you can get, and the dollar has now started its final journey to ZERO. It has only got 2% to go, measured form 1971 but we must remember that the 2% means a 100% fall from now… The demise of the petrodollar could also be accelerated by massive improvements in battery technology [such as] the revolutionary Quantum Glass Battery, invented by the Nobel Prize winner, John Goodenough…[that] is capable of storing considerable more energy than the lithium-ion battery and can be charged in a fraction of the time…As the Quantum Glass Battery comes into production it will…put an end to piston engines as well as the petrodollar. It will also fatally wound the oil industry. In the U.S. for example, 70% of all oil consumed is used for transportation. Increase In Price Of Gold The 98% decline in currencies since 1971 and +80% decline since 2000 are measured, in real terms, by gold… The U.S. government can try to fool the people with the so-called strong dollar policy but gold stands as the guardian of the truth and reveals governments’ deceitful actions… Gold at $1,970 today is clearly an absolute bargain.

Register in the top right hand corner of this page. I came to the conclusion several years ago that it was just a matter of time before the world realized that the relative functionality of the U.S. dollar was about to go belly up – to collapse. Prepared by Lorimer Wilson, editor of munKNEE.com – Your KEY To Making Money! [Editor’s Note: This version* of the original article by Chris Laird has been edited ([ ]), restructured and abridged (…) by 71% for a FASTER – and easier – read.] [Below is an explanation as to why I have come to the above conclusion and what I think it would mean for the well-being of the world.] Were the USD to actually collapse…the entire structure of the world economy would collapse for a period of time…[and] go through cataclysms politically during that period. That usually leads to massive wars, starvation and mass homelessness around the world. What Would Happen in a USD Collapse? 1. The U.S. and Western economies would all face insolvency simultaneously... 2. The entire Western industrial/consumer/credit economy would fall apart so fast it would make your head spin. The supply chain would stop and stores would empty quickly. 3. The USD would fall over 50% in one week’s time and then temporarily stabilize before its final last gasp… 4. Worldwide currency panic would set in paralyzing what’s left of the world economy which means the ‘emerging markets’ would stop dead too. 5. China would have a revolution, or go into military mode, which would be even worse. 6. A one-world currency would be demanded – and implemented. 7. Asia would fare horribly…If Western consumerism goes away, then the entire foundation of the Asia macro economy would instantly crash and stop cold… Conclusion It would be a dark time worldwide… (*The author’s views and conclusions are unaltered and no personal comments have been included to maintain the integrity of the original article.

Currency Collapse Coming: Go Get Gold NOW! Nobody knows when the final crisis will occur, but like so many times throughout human history we are marching down a narrow path to the final catastrophe of our fiat currency system. [Let me explain why.] 2. The U.S. Dollar Will Collapse When This Upcoming Event Happens If we want to better understand the answer to the elusive question of “When will the fiat US dollar collapse?”, we have to watch the petrodollar system and the factors affecting it. 3. Here’s How (and Why) the Collapse of the U.S. Dollar Could Unfold Imagine if the Fed and the Big Banks are actually planning on the US Dollar to tank! If that is, indeed, the case, here is how I imagine such a coup would unfold. 4. The U.S. Should Relinquish Reserve Status for its Dollar – Here’s Why Conspiracy theory notwithstanding, claims that the reserve status of the U.S. dollar unfairly benefits the U.S. are no longer true. On the contrary, it has become a burden, both for America and the world. [Let me explain.] 5. The Developing Disaster Facing the US Dollar & the World When the supply of something is increased sharply relative to demand, the value of that commodity will decline. If the supply continues to increase rapidly and indefinitely, then that item will become worth less and less, with the potential to finally become nearly worthless. This is the Developing Disaster facing the US Dollar and the world. This is the factor that could become the single most important criterion in investment allocation decisions and possibly even for individual financial survival. 6. Video: What Could Happen in the First 12 Hours of a US Dollar Collapse This is the scenario nobody thinks is possible but really, at the end of the day, it’s not like the U.S. can print money and live on debt forever – right? so when something cannot go on forever what happens when it stops? 7. What’s Happened – and Will Continue to Happen – to the Value of the U.S. Dollar Technically the U.S. left the gold standard in 1971 but, in reality, we abandoned it in 1913 with the creation of the Fed…setting the stage for the collapse of the dollar. [Given that this is] the 100th anniversary of the creation of the Federal Reserve, it seems only fitting that we should present a brief history of the U.S. dollar debasement since then. 8. The U.S. Dollar: Too Big to Fail? Those in the U.S. power structure know what the plan is if the U.S. dollar should fail. They are not admitting publically that there is even the remotest chance that it could happen but, rest assured, there is a plan. There is always a plan. To paraphrase Franklin Roosevelt, nothing happens by chance in government, so don’t be caught up in such a ‘surprise’ event – whatever it may be and whenever it occurs. 9. The U.S. Dollar Is Toast! Gold Could Rally By 50% As the dollar strengthens gold weakens & as the dollar falls, gold rises – .and it is my firm belief that the dollar is toast. If the dollar falls to the same magnitude which it has in previous interest rate cycles, we could see gold rally by 50%. 10. Exodus From U.S. Dollar Has Begun – Got Gold? Before the U.S. dollar became the world’s reserve currency that honor was held by Britain, then France, the Netherlands, Spain & Portugal and the U.S. dollar is no less susceptible to succumbing to the same change. In fact, many nations have been actively turning their back on the dollar over the past decade. 11. What the Heck is Going on With the Dollar and “Fear”? People are once again fleeing into gold, silver. They’re dumping the dollar and stocks, and they’re betting big on volatility and fear. The irony is, though, that there is no fear according to the “fear index” that speaks of “complacency”. This utter disregard for reality by stock and bond investors, who now no longer feel the need to be compensated for the risks they’re taking, except at the very riskiest end of the scale, is one of the greatest accomplishments of central banks, and at the same time one of the greatest risks out there. 12. Implications of Declining Dollar Will Be Major Western central banks, by debasing their currencies, have produced little more than financial ammunition for speculation on a grand scale. We saw the effect of a flood of this accumulation into the dollar over the last 18 months, and we are about to see the opposite effect as it ebbs away. What will the implications be?
