A2A with John Butler, author of "The Golden Revolution, Revisited"


On Wednesday, author John Butler stopped by to discuss his new book, "The Golden Revolution, Revisited". John has many thoughts on the coming remonetization of gold so you will likely find this discussion to be very informative.

We've known John since his first book, "The Golden Revolution", debuted back in 2012. The five years since have only served to reinforce his ideas and hasten the dawn of a new global financial paradigm, thus this updated and extended release.

Please make the time to give this audio a thorough listen and then do yourself a favor and buy John's book. After you read it, you should pass it along to a friend or family member that needs some advice, counsel and warning about what almost certainly lies ahead.

Silver ...

... doing it's usual nonsense, I see, as I drop in for the first time in a week.

Been visiting Alaska (Ketchikan today) on a cruise for some fly-fishing and general bad behaviour. We lucked into the most amazing weather! Even the locals are confirming our good luck.

See you soon, Turdville.

One More Time...

Fellas -- After what happened today, yesterday, last week -- and after what has been taking place over the last month, the last year, and over the last six years -- I think that it has become time (actually, it's long overdue) that we, as a community of precious metals market followers, skeptics of the system as it exists, and true believers in the inherent value of tangible assets, collectively admit that we have finally come to the realization that we are battered wives, and for years have been suffering from battered wives syndrome.

Our husband (corrupt system) beats us, then allows us to clean ourselves up and make temporary improvements, then beats us down again, allowing another brief reprieve. He then promises us it will never happen again and actually lets us believe that with slight-to-moderate improvements in our relationship that maybe things have actually gotten better. Then, just at the moment we least expect it, he brutally beats us down again, leaving us to wonder how this happened, why this happened, and could it be worse next time? Of course, we are helped through the healing process by our husband, propped back up mentally and physically to the point of actual belief that the worst is over, and then the son-of-a-bitch beats us down all over again.

It's never going to end. Our syndrome will always give us the false hope that we've survived the last, worst abuse we will experience, only to allow more severe and frequent beatings to occur in the near- and long-term future. We all have it -- this syndrome -- we are all struggling with it, and we all must admit it. The only way this is going to end is if we kill this son-of-a-bitch. Until our husband (the corrupted metals markets) is whacked, our abuse will continue, get worse, and even end some of us. It's either him or us, and it can't be us. This son-of-a-bitch has to go.

US moving to a gold standard proactively?

Hmmm... That sounds like a crack addict deciding it's bad for them, and going off the stuff proactively.

I'll give it a read

I'm not nearly as optimistic as John, but his research/conclusions are sound: I'll give his book a read.

Good interview!! On a somewhat related topic

Other than paying the Federal Reserve interest on the currency created, how does what the Algerians are proposing differ from what the U. S. is doing? From ZeroHedge

“”On Sunday, Algeria’s prime minister unveiled a plan to plug the country's budget deficit as the OPEC member state looks to offset lower oil revenue by directly borrowing from the central bank, while avoiding international debt markets. In other words, direct monetization of debt, which bypasses commercial banks as a monetary intermediate, and is better known as "helicopter money."

"If we turn to external debt, as the IMF suggests, we will need to borrow $20 billion a year to repay the deficit and within four years we will be unable to repay the debt," Ouyahia said. “This is what made the government look at non-traditional financing.””
