Palisades Gold Radio: The Coming Financial Iceberg (w/ Alasdair Macleod)

Alasdair Macleod discusses the risks of being a creditor to a bank and the potential for depositor funds to be used to bail-in a bank in the event of its failure. There is potential for a crisis of confidence as such legislation has been passed by the G20 countries and should be a concern to large depositors.

He then looks at the derivatives market, which has grown massively since the 1980s during a declining rate environment. Now we’re at the point where interest rates have nowhere to go but up. This, along with off-balance sheet debt, could have a major impact on the European banking system.

He then turns his attention to China, whose economy appears to be recovering, with the government being in full control of their banking system. China is securing resources and has long-term contracts with other countries. In contrast to the West, who have pivoted away from the Saudi’s, China is accepting gold for oil with long-term contracts.

Macleod explains why gold is the only legal money in existence and why the COT Open Interest metrics suggest that the gold market is oversold. Finally, he comments on the situation with Ukraine and Russia and the potential for global changes that could lead to the destruction of Western currencies, and the importance of people acquiring real money, such as gold, as insurance.
