Greenspan Warns A Crisis Is Imminent, Urges A Return To The Gold Standard

Remember the Golden Rule: "He who has the gold Rules!"

Remember the Golden Rule: “He who has the gold Rules!”

  • For Alan Greenspan’s 36 minutes interview on Bloomberg TV, click here.
  • The world is returning to the Gold Standard. ‘As we speak’, actions are being taken to introduce a ‘domestic dollar’, or ‘Treasury dollar’ (Jim Willie’s Scheisse Dollar) for local ie. domestic US usage. This Scheisse Dollar will be devalued 30% out of the gate. It will be further devalued (at least another 30%) down the road. America will be made to pay for imports with hard asset or a ‘hard’ currency ie. asset backed currency. Unless this Scheisse Dollar is gold backed (or asset backed) it will not be accepted for trade settlement. (Think hyperinflation.)
  • The existing Federal Reserve Note ie. US Dollar, will be phased out gradually. Holders of the US Dollar outside of America will be allowed to convert them to the IMF’s Special Drawing Rights(SDR). My understanding is that, the SDR will be made into the One World Currency backed by gold (as Lindsey Williams put it: a #3 World Currency backed by gold).
  • These actions are already in motion. It can be triggered at any moment. Got physical gold/silver yet?
  • Greenspan Warns A Crisis Is Imminent, Urges A Return To The Gold Standard
    by Tyler Durden, http://www.zerohedge.com  
    On Friday afternoon, after the shocking Brexit referendum, while being interviewed by CNBC Alan Greenspan stunned his hosts when he said that things are about as bad as he has ever seen.

    “This is the worst period, I recall since I’ve been in public service. There’s nothing like it, including the crisis — remember October 19th, 1987, when the Dow went down by a record amount 23 percent? That I thought was the bottom of all potential problems.
    This has a corrosive effect that will not go away. I’d love to find something positive to say.”


    Strangely enough, he was not refering to the British exodus but to America’s own economic troubles.

    Today, Greenspan was on Bloomberg Surveillance where in an extensive, 30 minutes interview he was urged to give his take on the British referendum outcome. According to Greenspan, David Cameron miscalculated and made a “terrible mistake” in holding a referendum. That decision led to a “terrible outcome in all respects,” Greenspan said. “It didn’t have to happen.” Greenspan then noted that as a result of Brexit, “we are in very early days a crisis which has got a way to go”, and point to Scotland which he said will likely have another referendum on its own, predicting the vote would be successful, and Northern Ireland would “probably” go the same way.

    His remarks then centered on the Eurozone which he defined as a truly “vulnerable institution,” primarily due to Greece’s inclusion in its structure. “Get Greece out. They’re a toxic liability sitting in the middle of a very important economic zone.” Ironically, the same Eurozone has spent countless hours doing everything in its power to show just how unbreakable the union is by preserving Greece, while it took the UK just one overnight session to break away. Luckily the UK was not part of the monetary union or else it would be game over.

    Of course, Greenspan ignores his own role in the creation of the boom-bust cycle which has doomed the world to series of ever more destructive bubbles and ultimately, hyperinflation which will likely be unlashed once the helicopter money inevitably arrives. In retrospect, the 90-year-old, who clearly is looking forward not backward, has a simple solution: the gold standard.

    If we went back on the gold standard and we adhered to the actual structure of the gold standard as it exited prior to 1913, we’d be fine.  Remember that the period 1870 to 1913 was one of the most aggressive periods economically that we’ve had in the United States, and that was a golden period of the gold standard.  I’m known as a gold bug and everyone laughs at me, but why do central banks own gold now?

Gold: Welcome To The Weimar Death Spiral

Hyperinflation-Weimar-Republic

Weimar Germany

  • Gold: Welcome To The Weimar Death Spiral
    by Dave Kranzler, http://investmentresearchdynamics.com/  
    For starters, I want to re-emphasize the importance of getting your money OUT of fiat currency and OUT of U.S. banks.  If you read this article and do not come to that conclusion, you will end up getting what you deserve:  Commerzbank To Hoard Euros  The Fed is devaluing the dollar every day.   My solution for day to day cash management is Bitgold.  I am not an “ambassador” or “affiliate.”  But I am convinced that it’s the best viable means of managing money that requires “fungability” – i.e. that you need for daily expenses.  You can sign-up for Bitgold here:   Gold-Backed “Checking” Account.  Bitgold operates OUTSIDE of the global Central Banking system.

    Second, a colleague of mine told me he knows why the stock market is up today – because it’s open.   That’s not entirely a joke.  But what is a joke is the underlying cause:  rampant global money printing disguised as “quantitative easing  – or Central Bank asset monetization.”

    Goodbye Keynes, hello Havenstein.  The Fed and the ECB have resorted to Weimar-style money printing.   The lack of transparency makes it easy for them to impose various forms of disguise to hide the outright money printing.   Today the ECB rolled out its program to buy corporate bonds.  It prints money and buys the bonds of U.S. and European corporations.  The disguised name is “quantitative easing.”

Alan Greenspan Warns That Venezuelan Style Martial Law Will Soon Come to The US

  • Alan Greenspan Warns That Venezuelan Style Martial Law Will Soon Come to The US
    by It seems barely a day passes now without some big name person warning of imminent collapse.  The latest is Alan Greenspan. In an interview on Thursday he told Fox News that Venezuela is now under martial law and that “America is next.” He said that what was happening in Venezuela was inevitably going to take place in the US.

    I agree with this.  In fact, we said this exact thing just last week with our article, “Venezuela Descends Into Chaos… Europe and US Next.” Funny enough, a few brainwashed sheeple said we were crazy for saying it.  Now Greenspan has said the same thing… is he crazy?  Actually, don’t answer that.

    But while we agree with Greenspan that crisis is coming to the US, that’s where our agreement ends.  We say it is coming to the US because the conditions in the US are not that much different than Venezuela – and the globalist plan is to turn the entire world into Venezuela. 

    Greenspan, on the other hand, is already trying to divert attention from the real cause of Venezuela’s problems: the government and central banking. Instead, he explained that the reason the US would end up like Venezuela involved a “global problem of a shortage of productivity growth.” It is this lack of productive growth that creates and expands an economic crisis, he claimed.

    This is Greenspeak at its finest.  The problems in Venezuela aren’t due to an extreme socialist government and a Keynesian money-printing central bank, according to him… no, the problem is just that things aren’t growing fast enough!

    Well, to an extent that is true.  Things aren’t growing at all in Venezuela. In fact they are imploding at a rate I’ve never personally witnessed before.  But that isn’t the root cause of the problem.  The reason why Venezuela’s economy isn’t growing is BECAUSE of the government and the central bank!

    Of course, you’ll never hear a central bankster admit that.  The problem is never them. It’s always some obtuse economic buzzphrase like a “lack of productivity growth.”

    Greenspan continued by downplaying the role of central banking and government in the Venezuela disaster.  He then focused on the Federal Reserve and continued his lying. He said what the Fed did now was less important than what the markets did. While more money was available, actual production was not. Too many older people and too few resources. That was the problem.

Venezuela Readies Biggest Military Exercise in Its History

  • Gerald Celente: “When all else fail, they take you to war!” War is simply the mass culling of the sheeple by the ruling Illuminist elites.
  • Venezuela Readies Biggest Military Exercise in Its History
    by  andrewrosati, http://www.bloomberg.com/  
    * Exercises come as opposition pushes for ousting of president
    * Defense Minister says it’s first mobilization of its kind 

    Venezuela is preparing for the biggest military exercises in its history this Saturday after the South American country’s government said it’s on high alert as the opposition pushes for a recall referendum on President Nicolas Maduro.

    “Venezuela is threatened,” Defense Minister Vladimir Padrino Lopez said on state television Thursday. “This is the first time we are carrying out an exercise of this nature in the country. In terms of national reach, it’s going to be in every strategic region.”

    Maduro announced the exercises last weekend, a day after pledging to prolong his government’s special emergency powers. In a rambling news conference on Tuesday, Maduro said U.S. spy planes including a Boeing 707 E-3 Sentry had entered the country’s airspace illegally this month. The nation is already on an elevated state of alert after the U.S. renewed a presidential decree that said the South American country is a threat to its national security, Padrino Lopez said.

    Opposition Governor Henrique Capriles said a “moment of truth” had arrived for the country’s Armed Forces Tuesday, a day before security forces used tear gas to turn back anti-government protesters in central Caracas.

Raw Venezuela: Looter Burned Alive, While “Streets Filled With People Killing Animals For Food”

  • Raw Venezuela: Looter Burned Alive, While “Streets Filled With People Killing Animals For Food” 
    by Tyler Durden, http://www.zerohedge.com 
    The situation in Venezuela is reaching all out chaos, as crippling socialist policies have resulted in a devastating power and food shortage, as well as looming political instability. This is Caracas today…

    These are hungry Venezuelans protesting that their children are dying from lack of food and medicineand that they do not have enough water or electricity. As AgainstCronyCapitalism reports, this is a country with more oil than Saudi Arabia, and the government has stolen all th emoney and now they bottleneck peaceful protesters and threaten them with bombs (or haul them to prison and torture them).

    On the other side, Vice President Aristobulo Isturiz, speaking on state television, said that a separate march will be held to support the extension of President Nicolas Maduro’s economic emergency decree.

    Don’t miss part 2 as we cover some fantastic info including censorship, dissent, and the threats of the criminal elite. Lucky for us technology is changing faster than the government can regulate or control it.

    We discuss current events, geopolitics, the precious metals breakout, unusual forecasts, and more. In the end Jim opens up and gives us some personal connection.

    The western word has gone broke, and added fuel to the fire over the last 5 years. Jim believes deficits will force bail ins and that the IRA, 401k, pension marketplace will be the target.

    We have seen an impressive metals breakout in the last few weeks. Jim explains how gold will break open the door for new highs while silver will chase at a faster rate. Jim gives us a nice technical analysis on the current breakout complete with graphs. Jim called this breakout in his 4/26 article:

    “Silver leads the precious metals breakout in impressive fashion. The Cup & Handle pattern indicates an 18 target to be reached very quickly. Both following charts exhibit a constructed launching pad for an assault on the $20 level.”

Why Is JPM’s “Quant Guru” Suddenly Worried About The “Endgame” – Devaluation of All Currencies Against Real Assets Such as Gold

Remember the Golden Rule: He who has the gold makes the rules! Got physical gold yet?

Remember the Golden Rule: He who has the gold makes the rules! Got physical gold yet?

  • Why Is JPM’s “Quant Guru” Suddenly Worried About The “Endgame”
    by Tyler Durden, http://www.zerohedge.com  
    When JPM quant Marko Kolanovic released his latest report today, we were expecting him to read his latest insight on the positioning of quant funds, on the relative imbalance of risk parity, or perhaps whether market gamma was suggesting that the market is poised for an inflection point, either lower or higher. Instead, we were surprised to read an extended analysis looking at how trapped the “out of options” central banks are, what the next steps are for the global economy, how the market is now as overvalued as it was before the 2000 crash, how rising rates “would make the current S&P 500 level look like a bubble”, and the exhaustion of all available policy options, which he dubbed the “endgame.” To wit:

    If investors lose confidence that the debt can ever be repaid, they will reduce their holdings, increasing the cost to governments or inviting more central bank buying. This can eventually result in the devaluation of all currencies against real assets such as gold, high inflation or even outright defaults (as was the case in Greece). If such a trend develops in one of the large economies, it could have far-reaching consequences.

    We were most surprised by Kolanovic’s strong case to buy gold, although considering it comes just one week after a Pimco economist dared to propose that central banks should monetize gold next in an attempt to massively boost inflation expectations (while send the price of gold to $5,000), perhaps we are not that surprised.

‘The Hunger Games’ Power Cuts And Shortages Spark Looting in Venezuela

  • Published on Apr 28, 2016
    The Venezuelan city of Maracaibo on Wednesday cleaned up from a night of looting and fiery protests as government offices closed their doors for the rest of the week in the face of a worsening energy crisis that is causing daily blackouts. Hundreds of police fanned out and more than 100 people were arrested there for looting that damaged dozens of businesses, according to local authorities.
