Gold And Grand Theft Economics
by Tyler Durden
The tectonic battle between a market trying to deflate its debts and the central banks attempting to reflate the impaired assets to maintain the status quo is becoming increasingly violent. In a brief clip, Santiago Capital’s Brent Johnson explains the fallacy of fiat money, the dynamics of the velocity of money in a ‘troubled’ economy, the ‘we are going to give the banks a lot of money’ plans, and the inevitable ‘there’s no more money’ moment when the inflationary and deflationary tremors come unstuck and become shock-waves. There will be no warning, no bell-ringing at the onset of the end of the monetary system itself as he notes the slate of Stability & Growth Pacts (EU) and The Recovery and Reinvestment Act (US) will inevitably be seen as the greatest unauthorized transfer of wealth in history – and being exposed to gold stored outside of the banking system, there is a protected route as the world staggers from tremor to tremor.
