Gold, Silver is value. Fiat currencies losing powerPeter Schiff: The End of the Dollar Standard!
The reason that governments don't like gold is probably for the same reason that kids don't like chaperones at the senior prom. Because the chaperones are there to keep the kids in line and prevent them from doing things they really shouldn't be doing. And that's really what gold does. It's kind of like a chaperone for government politicians because it keeps them honest. Because if you have real money, and government wants to spend money on programs, it needs to collect that money in taxes. And that generally puts a brake on a lot of programs because the public doesn't want to pay.
Gold stands in the way, because you can print paper out of thin air. But gold can't be printed into existence; it needs to be mined. And if we're on a gold standard, and gold is money, then the government needs real money. And since it doesn't have the ability to make it, it has to collect it in taxes before it can spend it back into circulation.
It's not just the dollar. It's fiat currencies around the world that are losing purchasing power as their central banks are conjuring them into existence at a rate that's far more rapid than the miners are pulling gold out of the ground. Gold's a good store of value. So is silver. Bitcoin - no. Because bitcoin doesn't have any value and you can't store what you don't have.
It's not like we're finally seeing it. We've been seeing it for decades now. The monetary expansion is inflation. And the Fed's been expanding the money supply - they've been inflating the money supply for a long time.
So, I think that if we had a more honest CPI, the effects of inflation would be more apparent.
The government is really basically dropping money from helicopters, and it's about to drop a lot more. And that's going to go right into consumer goods, and it's going to push up prices.
I think the dollar is going to fall for a long time.
A. There's nothing modern about it. It's not like they just discovered the printing press. Central banks have been destroying their currencies with a printing press for a long time.
But if it's already been disproven multiple times, it's really not a theory. It's a tragedy is what it is. So, the whole name doesn't even make sense.
If you're creating all this inflation, eventually it's going to lead to a big increase in money supply, and then by their own definition, they're going to have to withdraw all that money from circulation if they don't want it to become worthless. But it's easier said than done. Once you get everybody high on heroin, how do you take the heroin away without them going through withdrawal? That's what the Federal Reserve just found out - again - when they tried to normalize interest rates after keeping them at zero for so long. The markets started hemorrhaging. They went into withdrawal in the fourth quarter of 2018 and everything started falling apart. So, they had to go back to QE. They had to go back to rate cuts. They had to keep the addict juiced up.
It's the ultimate something for nothing.
Amazing new US Dollar Concept designA new US dollar concept may finally replace the currency with a modern design that tackles issues with counterfeiting and bill destruction. Designed by Andrey Avgust, this concept features a bold design that modernizes every bill in circulation. The US dollar concept replaces the traditional material with multiple layers of transparent polymer and updates the images to play off the translucent material.
Not only does the US dollar concept revamp the design of the currency, but it also adds extra layers of security. A unique PGP encrypted QR code will be included on every bill making counterfeiting nearly impossible. The polymer construction is also much harder to mimic effectively, as well as being incredibly hard to tear or break.
Putin urges for an international independent Digital Payment SystemVladimir Putin Urges for Creation of a Digital Payment System for International Settlements.

Eurasian alliance plans its own gold standardTowards the end of July, news emerged in the Russian media that Moscow and a number of its Eurasian allies are now reviewing a proposal to create an entirely new trading and pricing infrastructure for the international precious metals in order to both destroy London and New York's monopoly over global precious metals pricing and to stabilize the Russian gold market.
The basis of this new structure will be a new, specialized international precious metals brokerage headquartered in Moscow, which will rely on the MWS.
Russia is also proposing to fix prices of precious metals in the national currencies of key member countries or via a new monetary unit - such as the new BRICS currency proposed by Putin.
The price-fixing committee would include central banks and other large banks from the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU).
Member states of the EEU are Russia, Kazakhstan, Belarus, Kyrgyzstan, and Armenia.
The idea would be to make membership attractive to big gold players like China, India, Venezuela, Peru, and other South American countries.
