What Happens When Confidence Falls Apart? / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: MoneyMetals

While we may never know how deep and wide the political elites’ effort to gain control over our government goes, it appears to be vast. Although it’s still unknown whether fraud altered the overall election outcome, the evidence of fraud is real.

Corrupt poll workers and election officials have been identified in numerous locations along with voting machine “glitches.” Some judges seem to be ignoring evidence while affirming Joe Biden’s victory.

All the while, the corporate media plus the major social media platforms are working overtime to convince people the “evidence of widespread fraud doesn’t exist.”

“Government Sachs” Is Worried About the Federal Reserve Note / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: MoneyMetals

 

As July comes to a close, gold is up better than 9% for the month and has advanced nearly 30% for the year.

Gold’s record-setting rise has been driven by Federal Reserve stimulus, dollar weakness, and strong safe-haven investment demand. Even the Wall Street-centric financial media is taking note:

Financial News Anchor #1: Gold is shining once again, this morning. The spot price is touching all-time highs, as the dollar index sits around a two-year low.

Financial News Anchor #2: Those gold prices have hit an all-time high. The spot price of gold reaching a record.

Gold traditionally surges in times of turmoil. In this case, the economic impact of the pandemic, and those US/China tensions. They are sending investors to this safe haven. But the Federal Reserve's monetary easing measures, they also have a part to play in the price of gold.

Declaring Your Independence from Currency Debasement / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: MoneyMetals

 

Precious metals markets kicked off trading for the third quarter by posting modest declines across the board. 

However, the technical bigger picture for gold and silver still looks strong after the metals recorded impressive gains in Q2.  Gold finished out the quarter trading at its highest level since 2012. That has bulls anticipating new all-time highs for the monetary metal in the near future.

Even though gold is outperforming the stock market in 2020, it isn’t getting much attention from the Wall Street-centric financial media. We suspect public interest in precious metals will begin to surge once gold hits a new record and trades over $2,000. Then the media will be forced to start paying more attention to the sector.

In The Year 2025 If Fiat Currency Can Survive / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Bob_Kirtley

Introduction

We are presently enduring a period of great change due to the Coronavirus which has already cost many lives and inflicted untold damage to the global economy.

Alongside the damage caused by this virus the world has also entered a recession having been through an eleven-year period of expansion.

To make matters worse many nations are shouldering massive debts raising questions about the possibility of debt defaults on a grand scale.

Today we are taking a peek into what the future might look like and it is not a pretty sight.

What’s Next, Trillion US Dollar Coins? / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: MoneyMetals

The massive set of stimulus measures rolled out last month by the Treasury Department and Federal Reserve has left many Americans wanting more… and politicians scheming for new ways to dole out additional trillions in cash.

Most taxpayers have already received their $1,200 “stimulus” payments. However, that one-time payment will do little to repair the long-term financial health of the 26 million (and rising) who are newly unemployed.

And it surely won’t bail out all the small business owners who were callously deemed “non-essential” and forced to shut down during this pandemic.

A single currency system for the world / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Submissions

In 2019 migrants sent more than $720 billion in remittances worldwide. The average cost of sending remittances hovered close to 6%. The total cost of remittances exceeds $43 billion annually. Much of this expense is incurred toward mandatory currency conversions. Unifying the world with one common monetary unit is certainly a worthy cause. In addition to remittances it would greatly streamline trade, migration, and diplomacy. There have been several efforts in this direction. Let’s take a quick account of the world’s progress toward this noble goal.

The ABC’s of Fiat Money / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Rob_Kirby

The machinations and bravo sierra excuses that are being “served up” attempting to explain the onset of massive Fed liquidity “adds” are fogging up my glasses.  As a savant I once worked with in the institutional capital markets told me many, many years ago when I first parked my butt in a chair on a trading desk fresh out of University told me, “Kirby, what happens in here is really quite simple – we deal with money and the only things you can do with that are: buy it, sell it, borrow it or lend it.  It isn’t rocket science”.

When the Fed adds “liquidity” [aka fresh fiat money] they purchase debt – either on a temporary basis [repo] or a permanent basis by outright purchases [expanding their balance sheet].  Fresh fiat money is the oil that greases the wheels of our debt based money system.  When the Fed purchases debt they are signalling concern that the wheels of our money system are seizing up.

Latin America Sinks Under The Weight Of Its Third-Rate Currencies / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Steve_H_Hanke

Latin America is plagued with many endemic economic problems. As a result, slow growth and economic instability are the order of the day. Latin America is sinking. In the grand scheme of things, it’s become irrelevant.

When it comes to listing culprits that account for the zombie growth rates in Latin America, the laundry list usually includes: high levels of corruption, a weak application of the rule of law, poor public services, a lack of public safety, and so on.

The Race to Depreciate Fiat Currencies Is Accelerating / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: MoneyMetals

Metals investors are anxiously awaiting the market’s reaction to next week’s Fed meeting. We may see players in the futures markets move to smash gold and silver prices down to lower support zones in the trading around the Fed’s decision.

But flushing out some more speculative longs and late comers with weak hands would be a healthy development in setting up the next rally.

Those who got left behind in this summer’s big moves in metals markets should certainly consider taking advantage of favorable buying opportunities as they present themselves ahead of a possible seasonal push higher in the sector this fall.

It’s Time For Colombia To Dump The Peso / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Steve_H_Hanke

Colombia’s peso is in trouble, again. Against the U.S. dollar, the peso has shed 20% of its value in a little more than a year and 7% in the last month. Like most Latin American currencies, the Colombian peso bobs up and down like a yo-yo, but its long-term trend is one of weakness. Indeed, since August 2014, the peso has lost 45% of its value against the greenback. Talk about a theft! The chart below tells the peso’s most recent tale.

Zimbabwe Introduces A New Currency For Maxi-Devaluation / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Steve_H_Hanke

Until February 20th, Zimbabwe produced a quasi-currency. It was dubbed a “Zollar.” On the 20th, the quasi-currency became Zimbabwe’s official currency. This new currency is called RTGS dollars and consists of bond notes and RTGS (electronic money).

The RTGS dollars possess legal tender status and will serve as the unit of account for the government’s books. The official exchange rate for Zollar quasi-currency had been set at a one-to-one rate with the U.S. dollar. But now, the RTGS dollar will trade at a managed floating exchange rate. The rate today is 2.50 per U.S. dollar, not par, as it used to be. So, Zimbabwe’s official exchange rate has experienced a maxi-devaluation of 60%.

Gold, Original Money, Fiat Money / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Kelsey_Williams

The first gold coins appeared around 560 B.C.  Over time it became a practice to store larger amounts of gold in warehouses.  Paper receipts were issued certifying that the gold was on deposit.  These receipts were negotiable instruments of trade and commerce which could be signed over to others.  They were not actual currency but are a presumed forerunner to our modern checking system.

Gold is original money. It was money before paper receipts were issued. The paper receipts were not money. They were substitutes for real money. Today, all paper currencies are substitutes for real money.

Fiat Currency Inflation, And Collapse Insurance / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Raymond_Matison

FIAT CURRENCY INFLATION,  AND COLLAPSE  INSURANCE

Insurance against fiat currency

Billions of people covering a vast land mass around the globe do not have insurance of any sort.  Why?  It is because they own few assets.  No house, no car, just a hovel with no electricity or water at the foothills of some nondescript mountain.  By contrast, those who live in advanced economies have assets worthwhile protecting against loss.  Thus, we in America have homeowners insurance to protect against the loss of our dwelling, auto insurance to protect against the involuntary conversion of our movement conveyance into scrap metal, and to protect our financial assets against a lawsuit which could strip us of our savings and investment assets in the face of our fault in an automobile accident.  Further, we protect our family’s income and savings by purchasing life or disability insurance.  We buy insurance because we do have assets, and believe it worthwhile to protect those assets against unforeseeable loss, when the cost of that insurance is affordable.

Why is it then, that we do not protect our assets against the major foreseeable and persistent source of asset loss – that of loss in the value of our currency.  Should we not have protection against inflation and the resulting loss of value or purchasing power in our fiat currency represented in our pension funds, stock or bond funds, or savings and money market account assets?  We know and acknowledge that inflation robs us of our savings each and every year.  Since 1971, even using the contrived statistics used in calculating the Consumers Price Index, the value of a 1971 collar is just worth $0.16 today.  That is a very significant loss in value over a relatively short period of time.

Sound Money Needed Now More Than Ever / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: MoneyMetals

The sound money movement reemerged on the national political scene a decade ago. In 2008, the financial crisis brought in a fresh wave of U.S. gold and silver investors.

Ron Paul and the Tea Party advocated for limiting government and ending the Federal Reserve system. Sound money advocates made real inroads in recruiting Americans to their cause based on evidence that the nation is headed for bankruptcy.

The implications of the most recent financial crisis went way beyond budget and finance.

When Fiat Currencies Die - Preparing to Barter and Trade Is NOT a Loony Idea / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: MoneyMetals

Let’s start with this fact; fiat (paper) currencies die – often spectacularly. That is why precious metals may someday be needed for barter and trade. Anyone who thinks it is silly to worry about such a thing is putting blind faith in Federal Reserve Notes.

The U.S. dollar is having a great run, no question. It will soon be 50 years since Nixon closed the gold window, thereby converting the dollar to a purely fiat currency. Five decades is longer than most purely fiat currencies survive.

Money Is Money, Wherever It Comes From / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Raul_I_Meijer

One of the crucial things to understand about today’s world is that money is fungible. Whether it’s created in Japan, Europe, China or the US, once it’s tossed by a central bank into one or another part of the global economy, it eventually finds its way to a common pool of liquidity.

So the modest US tightening of the past year (100 basis point increase in the Fed Funds rate, slight decrease in Fed balance sheet) has to be seen in a global context. And that context is still insanely easy. Here, for instance, is China’s “social financing” – their term for total new debt:

Global Currency Reserve At Risk / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Within the US borders, the population remains largely ignorant of the true significance of the global currency reserve concept. It is of paramount importance, yet almost never discussed in the financial press. The public within the United States simply assumes the country operates with the USDollar as its currency, with near blindness to its global role in trade and banking. The end of an era is coming, as the change will be powerful in its effect. The shock wave could hit this year in some form, in a manner to highlight its importance.
