Bloomberg Interview of Peter Hambro - Must Watch

Thu, Sep 10, 2015 - 12:36pm

A big hat tip and thank you to our pal, Koos Jansen, for spotting this and tweeting it out earlier. With all of the continuing stories of exhausted western gold supply, you need to see this interview from earlier today. Peter Hambro is Chairman and Co-Founder of Petropavlovsk, the second-biggest gold producer in Russia.

First, here's the link to Koos' article from earlier Thursday. Be sure to read it. https://www.bullionstar.com/blogs/koos-jansen/its-virtually-impossible-t...

Some quotes from Mr. Hambro during this astonishingly frank, 4-minute interview:

  • "That is real gold. The alternative is paper gold...other people's promises. That is nobody's promise."
  • "The price of gold doesn't vary, it's the price of the promises that vary."
  • "Are you sure it's as good to have Comex futures as it is to have the real thing?"
  • "It's virtually impossible to get physical gold in London to ship to China and India."
  • "There is no physical about. Instead, there are endless promises."
  • "I really worry that that paper market is something that could be stamped upon and people say 'sorry, we're going to have a financial closeout' and it's all over. If you want to be in the gold business, you want to be in the physical business."

The interview concludes with Mr. Hambro giving his thoughts on Fed policy and next week's FOMC.

This is an incredibly honest interview and I'm quite amazed that it actually aired on Bloomberg. Please take the time to watch.

ok, I have to Two

"perception, not truth!"

Wow, that female interviewer just "hates" gold... OMG, she would have to carry it! Where would she "keep" it!

I guess all she wants is that DIGITAL PROMISE... err mean money.

Oh yeah, buy more metals!

And once you hear the final

And once you hear the final 60 seconds of the interview, you'll be left wondering if Mr. Hambro isn't a closet Turdite!

Just some great quotes:

"Experience has shown, that even under the best forms of government those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny." - Thomas Jefferson

"Power attracts the corruptible. Suspect any who seek it." - Frank Herbert, Chapterhouse: Dune

"Among a people generally corrupt, liberty cannot long exist." - Edmund Burke

"Look at the orators in our republics; as long as they are poor, both state and people can only praise their uprightness; but once they are fattened on the public funds, they conceive a hatred for justice,plan intrigues against the people and attack the democracy." - Aristophanes, Plutus

"Politically, Republicans and Democrats are at opposite ends. One's a burp and the other's a fart." - Jarod Kintz
