Palisades Gold Radio: Debt and War, the Signs of a Dying Empire (w/ Matthew Piepenburg)

Sadly the decline of empires is often associated with war and debts. We’re seeing a lot of polarized thinking in the West and not much in the way of understanding.

The war has shown how unprepared and weak much of the west has become. We are pointing a gun at Putin and shooting ourselves in the foot with these sanctions.

The financial weapons that are being deployed against Russia are backfiring in a very serious way. We are forcing Russia to move closer to China and the West has shown it’s willingness to freeze and steal reserves. This has not gone unnoticed by a number of countries.

We’re seeing a lot of spin and virtue signaling from Western governments. The West can’t use the same approach on larger countries that we’ve used on small ones in the past.

We’re moving towards a multi-currency system due to the decline of the U.S. dollar.

Russia’s FX reserves are the highest they have ever been. Saudi Arabia is now conversing with China to sell oil in Yuan and other nations are doing likewise. This means the end of the petrodollar which has massive implications.

U.S. Treasuries are now some of the most unloved IOU’s in the world.

We’re seeing the consequences in the yield curve. If no one buys your debt than you have to buy it yourself. The market fears rising rates and their are no good solutions for the Fed.

Inflation is therefore inevitable and intentional. Matthew discusses how gold is ‘the’ monetary metal and he no longer has faith in any currencies.

Count your wealth in ounces and grams not dollars. Gold is the insurance policy with the largest history.

Price discovery for gold is improving as more countries actively begin to use it. Gold always gets the last laugh.

Many Gold ETFs claim to provide ownership but is not true in fact. They may not have the gold and it’s probably stored at a commercial bank with derivative risks.

Lastly, try to stay positive and look for informed opinions.
