Gold Videocast: Jim Rickards & Peter Schiff on Gold & Currency Wars (Video)

In his latest Gold Videocast, Peter Schiff meets with Jim Rickards, author of The Death of Money, for an exclusive interview about gold’s role in the international currency wars.

Jim Rickards is Chief Global Strategist at the West Shore Funds, and Director of The James Rickards Project, an inquiry into the complex dynamics of geopolitics + global capital. In The Death of Money, Rickards shows why another monetary system collapse is rapidly approaching – and why this time, nothing less than the institution of money itself is at risk. Fortunately, it’s not too late to prepare for the coming death of money. Rickards explains the power of converting unreliable money into real wealth, such as gold and other long-term stores of value.

0:28 – A review of the most recent developments in the international currency war and why the US is unfortunately going to “win.”

1:43 – Countries with the biggest dollar reserves are building up gold reserves in preparation for a currency crisis.

2:15 – China’s officially reported gold holdings are probably false. Rickards leads Peter through his reasoning that China’s gold holdings are likely 4-5 times greater than official reports!

4:00 – If China told the truth about how much gold they really have, the dollar would collapse and gold would skyrocket. They don’t want this to happen before they’ve bought as much gold as they feel they need.

5:11 – Why has Germany seemingly changed its mind about repatriating its gold?

6:49 – Basically, the Fed has “leased” the same gold over and over again.

7:12 – Rickards explains why gold dropped in 2013 and why it was a one-time event.

8:10 – At some point, US Treasuries can no longer be the safe haven for investors.

8:30 – Rickards addresses the problems surrounding the London Gold Fix and how the gold market is moving to the East. Shanghai is rewriting the rules of the gold market.

10:01 – Rickards explains how the next liquidity crisis will play out, with the collapse of central banks, as well as sovereign nations.

11:17 – When you have a currency crisis, it’s the paper wealth that evaporates. Rickards explains how Warren Buffet is preparing for exactly this endgame – by dumping paper money and buying hard assets.

The Fed Is Damned If It Does, Damned If It Doesn’t (Video)

Peter Schiff interviews Chris Rossini, contributor to the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity, about his book Set Money Free. They talk about the Federal Reserve’s role in centrally planning the economy and how it funds the biggest welfare-warfare state in history. Peter says that price inflation is much higher than the official estimates. However, the Fed has put itself into a position where it will be impossible to do anything about it, even when it becomes undeniable to those in power.

“The only way they can save [the dollar] is to bankrupt the federal government. But somehow I have a hard time believing that the treasury defaulting on its debts is going to be a bullish situation for the world’s reserve currency. So, I think they’re damned if they do, damned if they don’t.”

Central Banks Will Drive Gold to New Highs (Video)

Peter Schiff was interviewed by Chris Waltzek on GoldSeek Radio. They discussed the fact that gold is up 8% on the year and has done better than the stock market, and yet the so-called experts continue to say that it has had a “tough year.” Peter explained that the conditions needed for gold to break former highs over the coming years are exactly the artificially low interest rates and inflationary policies of the Federal Reserve and other worldwide central banks. Peter also spoke about how Janet Yellen is betting her positive economic forecast on the wealth effect associated with a rising real estate market, but he believes that the housing rally is over.

“Everybody was expecting the stock market to be up this year. In fact, it’s up less than all the experts thought it would be, whereas those same experts expected gold to be way down on the year. Instead, it’s doing better than the stock market. And they don’t even acknowledge how wrong they were. They still pretend that they were right.”

Gold Continuing to Outperform Stock Market (Video)

Peter Schiff appeared on CNBC’s Futures Now this week to share his expectations for the price of gold following the Federal Reserve’s policy statement. Peter also predicted the higher Q2 GDP number and explained why he thinks the US dollar isn’t nearly as healthy as everyone thinks. Finally, Peter emphasized that gold has had bad press in 2014, even though it has out-performed the stock market with an 8% rise in the first six months of the year.

“Gold has gone up every year but one since the year 2000. So if you’ve been calling for a rise in the price of the gold, you’ve been right every year except one. That’s not a broken record, that’s just understanding what’s going on and predicting a higher gold price. It’s the people that have been calling for gold’s demise every single year who don’t understand the fundamentals… No market goes up every single year… I know what’s driving the trend and that’s the central banks, particularly the Federal Reserve.”

US Could Be in a Recession by End of Year (Video)

Peter Schiff appeared on Yahoo! Finance yesterday to explain why he thinks the US economy is going to get worse in the second half of 2014, in spite of better Q2 GDP numbers. If economic data were reported more accurately, Peter believes we would discover that the US has been in a recession for the entirety of the Obama presidency. As it is, he thinks there is a good chance we’ll enter an official recession before the end of the year.

“Look at the housing data. It’s been terrible. Look at all the corporate earnings that have been coming out, particularly companies that service the middle-class and the lower-class. Earnings are disappointing. I think it’s clear that the economy is rolling over. People are buried under a mountain of debt. Prices are rising for utilities, for food. People are losing their full-time jobs [and] replacing them with low-paying part-time jobs.”

Doug Casey: I’ve Never Sold an Ounce of Gold (Video)

Peter Schiff interviewed Doug Casey on his radio show this week. First they discussed Casey’s new short documentary Meltdown America, which warns about the looming financial and monetary collapse due to reckless central bank policies. They move on to explain to the listeners why both Peter and Doug buy physical precious metals like gold and silver to protect themselves from the current historic bubbles in the bond and stock markets.

“I continue accumulating gold very regularly… It’s the only financial asset that’s not simultaneously somebody else’s liability. And I’m not interested in holding paper in the over financialized world that we’re in today… I think we’re on the edge of something much worse than what we had in 2008 and 2009. If I look around the world to places where you can put your capital, real estate is over-priced. The stock market is greatly over-priced. The bond market is in a historic bubble… So what are you left with?” –Doug Casey

Go Bold with Gold

The idea of gold standard continues to become more mainstream, as people realize the current monetary regime is out of control. Judy Shelton writes in The Weekly Standard:

“Should the soundness of the dollar be subordinated to other policy objectives, as determined by a small committee of Federal Reserve officials meeting in Washington, D.C., eight times a year? Would private individuals make better economic and financial decisions if they knew the value of the dollar was not slated to deteriorate annually by some unknown percentage?”

The Consensus Is In – Market Ready to Crash (Video)

Peter Schiff appeared on Fox Business “Morning Bell” yesterday and discussed that when the stock bubble bursts, the Fed will likely try to save the bubble instead of the dollar.

“The bottom is either going to drop out of the market or the dollar – and I’m betting actually that it’s the latter. But the problem is if the Federal Reserve is prepared to sacrifice the dollar in order to save the market, real returns on US assets are going to suffer dramatically as a result.”

Evolving Beyond the US Dollar Hegemony (Video)

Major news hit this week that the BRICS have launched their own development bank to challenge the currently Western-dominated banking system. Read about it here. Who could better explain the rationale behind this new bank than the author of the book Currency Wars, Jim Rickards? Rickards appeared on CNBC this week to share his thoughts. His message? The world is ready to leave the dollar behind and kick the irresponsible United States out of the economic driver’s seat.

“Every single member of the BRICS, multiple times has voiced dissatisfaction with the dollar, the dollar hegemony, the dollar-based system, and the IMF, which is really dominated by the US. So it’s not that there’s a revolution that happens overnight, but it’s more of an evolution away from the dollar.”

Gold Is the Only Undervalued Asset in a World of Bubbles (Video)

In this long segment on CNBC’s Futures Now, Peter Schiff, Marc Faber, and Dennis Gartman discuss the massive bubbles forming in almost every asset class. Faber called for a potential bear market correction of 30% in US stocks. All three agreed that gold is the best option for retail investors to protect themselves from the Federal Reserve’s inflationary monetary policy.

“The only place there’s not a bubble is in gold, and that’s the only place that most people on Wall Street think they see one. They’re oblivious to the actual bubbles, but they’re overlooking the value in gold…”
