A Dollar Collapse – And Gold Revaluation – Is Inevitable

“Furthermore, in the main, historians educated as Keynesians and monetarists do not understand the economic history of money, let alone the difference between a gold standard and a gold-exchange standard. These similar sounding monetary systems must be defined and the differences between them noted, for anyone to have the slimmest chance of understanding this vital subject, and its relevance to the situation today…

…The pricing of financial assets, and today’s extraordinarily low interest rates indicate that a flight from the dollar is the last thing expected in financial markets. If they were still alive, de Gaulle and his economic advisor, Jacques Rueff, would be instructing the ECB, as successor to the Bank of France, to dump all dollars for gold immediately. And probably to dump all other foreign fiat currencies for gold as well. However, today, it is likely that other actors will blow the whistle on the dollar, such as the Chinese, and the Russians.”

The quotes above are from Alasdair Macleod’s piercing essay on the gold standard and the mechanics underlying an inevitable collapse of the U.S. dollar: Why A Dollar Collapse Is Inevitable. No one can claim to understand the modern monetary system without reading this piece from Macleod. It also explains by Modern Monetary Theorists are full of shit.

As the antithesis to the dollar, gold will soar. I was looking at some charts with a colleague earlier this week and was startled to discover that a very quiet bull move has begun in the miners.

Like the move that began in late 2015, it seems that some of the junior miners per GDXJ have gotten the party going. As you can see in the chart below, GDXJ is up 12.8% since December 7, 2017. GDX is up 9.5% since March 1st. Some individual stocks are quite a bit more than the indices: AEM up 18% since March 1st, EXK up 49.7% since Feb 9th, Bonterra up 25% since March 1st, etc.

I’ve had several stocks in my Mining Stock Journal that have outperformed the sector my several multiples. Some of them are risky junior exploration stocks and some are lower-risk producers. A good example is EXK, which I presented in the August 24, 2017 issue at $2.16. It closed Friday at $3.06, up 41% from my buy recommendation. This is just one out of many examples.

Hugo Price Salinas: The Crumbling World Order And Gold

The massive “disintermediation” of physical gold from western Central Banks plus bank and ETF custodial vaults to the east, especially China, India and Russia will eventually be one of the biggest stories/events of this millennium.   This acceleration in the migration of physical gold this year has been triggered by the relentless manipulation of gold by the Fed/ECB/BoE and its agent bullion banks using fraudulent paper gold contracts.  Recently, the drawdown in the amount of gold reported to be in the vaults on the Comex and in HSBC’s GLD vault is nothing short of stunning.

Hugo Salinas Price has written a must-read essay on the collapse of the west and measures China will implement assume the lead role in a restructured global world order:

The Chinese evidently have some plans which they are not divulging, for we see that China is purchasing huge amounts of gold. In the meantime, the US insists on trashing the price of gold, as if to say that the Dollar is and will remain the world’s supreme currency till the end of time.

China is quietly accumulating gold and saying nothing. But we can try to guess what China is thinking: “The US is mired in an insoluble problem. Do nothing to provoke the US. The US will destroy itself in a huge collapse.”

The middle class in the United States has no idea that a heavy 2×4 is being at the back of their heads.  By the time many of them realize what is happening, it will be too late to duck.
