A2A with James Turk

112

Our recent run of extraordinary webinars continued today with this invaluable appearance by James Turk, founder of GoldMoney. If you can make the time, you will please be sure to give this recording a thorough listen. You won't be disappointed.

The call begins with a discussion of the recent merger between GoldMoney and BitGold. As you might imagine, ole Turd is very excited about the opportunity presented by this platform and I was eager to open my own account. I strongly urge you to check out GoldMoney/BitGold yourself and (full disclosure), if you enter and join through the link below, yours truly earns 1/4 gram of gold for himself. So, please, by all means...

The call then proceeds to cover a plethora of topics over the next 55 minutes, including:

  • How to measure tightness in the global physical metal market?
  • Can/will bankers and hedge funds naked short the mining industry into oblivion?
  • How might China respond if they're not included in the IMF's SDR later this year?
  • Is it justified to own more silver than gold, given the current gold:silver?
  • Why don't mining executives do more to fight the manipulation of the paper markets?

And much, much more.

Again, please take the time to listen to this entire presentation. Break it up into smaller segments if you need to but try to listen to the whole thing. Great stuff from an industry legend and recognized expert on the global gold market.

Follow his recommendations on portfolio allocation percentages. They are right and reasonable.

Greece has another big

Greece has another big payment to make on Aug 20th; currently the 'bailout' is still to be agreed, so the world's worst soap opera is about to air another episode.

Gold versus silver in Earth's crust

Turk's 10X as much silver as gold in the crust? 16X is commonly accepted. Wikipedia has closer to 60X!

Quote:
I had gone along with the commonly accepted "The earth's crust has 16 ounces of silver for every ounce of gold" so I was surprised to see Sebag's "Silver is 60X more abundant than gold" (page 11 of the pdf) I went to wikipedia to disprove him:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abundance_of_elements_in_Earth%27s_crust

Sebag was right! (The wikipedia article has good references, looks good to me)

The article had the familiar annual 2700 tonnes of gold production and 24000 tonnes of silver production.

Maybe Turk's 10X is the silver versus gold MINED each year?
