Central Banks lost control! Gold currency trust

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.

Gold and Silver benefit from FED policy, inflation

Gold prices are hovering around a two-week high as of Friday, showing the biggest weekly gains in over two months as the US Federal Reserve keeps key policy rates unchanged, engendering investors optimism about commodity markets.
The Fed balance sheet is one of the drivers to the expanding money supply. The Feds monetary tools are used to keep rates low and cheap credit flowing. If the Fed keeps up the monetary stimulus, it will continue to drive inflation higher.
If the Fed were to ever try and taper, allowing longer-term rates to rise, it will put pressure on many areas of the economy, including the federal deficit.
In either case, Gold and Silver should benefit from high inflation if the Fed keeps printing or a shrinking economy if the Fed tapers.

What Is Fiat Money?

Fiat money is a currency that is backed by nothing except the faith and credit of the government issuing it.
Basically every usable currency around the world today is a fiat currency.
The U.S. dollar has been fiat since 1971.
Fiat money is a currency that is declared money by decree-not by the marketplace.
Though some fiat currencies were once backed by commodities, they are now only backed by the legislative power of the government issuing them.
