Judy Shelton interview on gold standard:
"I like the idea of a gold backed currency, it could even be done in a Cryptocurrency sort of way.
A unified money system, so when you talk about the international marketplace, everyone is playing on a level monetary playing field.
I don't see it so much as returning [to the gold standard], more like 'back to the future.' I think that what a gold standard stands for is monetary discipline for its own sake. Money is supposed to be a unit of account, a reliable measure and a dependable store of value. It really shouldn't be subject to who's the chairman of the Federal Reserve.
How can a dozen [...] people meeting eight times a year, decide what the cost of capital should be versus some kind of organically, market supply determined rate? The Fed is not omniscient. They don't know what the right rate should be. How could anyone? [...] If the success of capitalism depends on someone being smart enough to know what the rate should be on everything we're doomed.

Central banks added 650 tons to their reserves in 2019, the second highest shift in 50 years, after the 656 tons added in 2018. Before the 2007-09 financial crisis, central banks were net sellers of gold worldwide for decades. Leading the recent spree has been China, Russia, Turkey, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan.
China can escape the fate of a dollar collapse by tying the yuan to gold. There is little doubt she has access to sufficient gold. Currently, her interest is to preserve the dollar, not destroy it, because it is the principal means of Chinese foreign interests being secured.

The Fed is going to buy stocks. I do not know precisely when , but it will happen, and probably soon. It does not want to buy stocks but knows it is too dangerous to rule out. Since financial markets are like teenagers - continually testing boundaries - expect the Fed to keep getting pressed on this issue.
