Central Banks lost control! Gold currency trust

Gesara.news » News » Central Banks lost control! Gold currency trust

News Date: August 26, 2020

Major central banks have totally lost control and the world economy is now floating around helplessly without direction.
Since sound money must be scarce, fiat money can never be sound since unlimited amounts can be and have been created. One of the very important features of gold is that it is scarce. The total global gold stock only increases by 1.7% or 3,000 tones per annum.
So scarcity is one of the important reasons why gold is the only currency that has survived in history.

Donald Trump hints the gold standard again

Donald Trump is trying to tell us something about the return to the gold standard, citing an interesting section from the Constitution.
He posted on his network an article of the Constitution that specifically talks about Gold & Silver Coin as legal tender.

"No State shall enter into any Treaty, Alliance, or Confederation; grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal; coin Money; emit Bills of Credit;
make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts;
pass any Bill of Attainder, ex post facto Law, or Law impairing the Obligation of Contracts, or grant any Title of Nobility."

More BRICS and Bretton Woods 3

Expanding BRICS to create an alternative power bloc is enticing for many countries.
Talk of the BRICS nations creating a new reserve currency introduced the idea of 'Bretton Woods 3.0'.
The Bretton Woods Agreement was negotiated in July 1944 by delegates from 44 countries at the United Nations Monetary and Financial Conference held in Bretton Woods, New Hampshire.
Thus, the name 'Bretton Woods Agreement'.
Under the Bretton Woods System, gold was the basis for the U.S. dollar and other currencies were pegged to the U.S. dollar's value.
The Bretton Woods System effectively came to an end in the early 1970s when President Richard M. Nixon announced that the U.S. would no longer exchange gold for U.S. currency.
