Serbia and Kosovo have agreed to normalize economic relations, following U.S.-brokered talks that include Serbia moving its Israeli embassy to Jerusalem and Kosovo formally recognizing Israel.
U.S. President Donald Trump made the announcement Friday, after meeting with Kosovo Prime Minister Avdullah Hoti and Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic in the Oval Office earlier in the day.
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.
A combination of China and Russia would be the two countries that will lead us back to having a currency backed by precious metals.
China has multiples of what they report in gold reserves, that they probably got 20,000+ tons of gold reserves.
Russia is actually in a very-very good position: they have very low debt, they don't run large deficits, etc. They got a very large natural resource economy as well.
As a result, when the things come crashing down that the first two currencies that go to a gold backing are China and Russia.
The European Central Bank (ECB) announced that it will start conducting experiments to decide whether to launch a digital euro. In a report setting out the pros and cons of launching a digital euro, the ECB said that it could support the Eurosystems objectives by providing citizens with a safe form of money in the fast-changing digital world.
