Dutch Mainstream Media Coverage of Gold

Thu, Nov 20, 2014 - 12:25pm

Our pal, Koos Jansen, sent over this link earlier today. With the vote on the Swiss Gold Initiative looming on the 30th of this month, it's quite interesting to see how the discussion is being framed in Europe.

This clip is only seven minutes long and it comes complete with English subtitles. Koos is prominently featured and, as a frequent visitor to this site, he tucks in some observations that echo many of the themes frequently discussed here. However, it's also worth watching for the coverage and discussion of the Swiss Gold Initiative and the disgusting Keynesian propaganda and lies that are spouted to demean it. The argument is again promulgated that a strong Franc is somehow bad for the Swiss economy. Says who? Swiss Big Business, I guess. But what about the average Swiss citizen who is seeing the value of his work and savings constantly eroded by a Swiss National Bank intent upon depreciating their currency?

Also be sure to catch the "commentary" provided by someone named Ivo Arnold, purportedly an "economic expert". This Keynesian goon not only claims wrongfully that the gold standard prolonged The Great Depression and comes with "so many downsides to it", he also arrogantly belittles the Swiss by smirking and proclaiming that other Europeans see them as "a weird country".

This is the arrogance that MUST BE DEFEATED. You have a choice Switzerland. You can either reclaim your sovereignty and historical independence by voting "YES" on November 30 or you can side with pompous fools like Ivo Arnold and his soulmates at The European Central Bank.

It's up to you. My hope is that you choose wisely, for yourselves and your posterity.
