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.

The English invaded Brazil??? And all of Central America?? and all of Indonesia, Japan and Russia...I think the author of this theory over states the case...

informetron re Chinese yuam for oil / gold

Thank you for the links....it looks like the oil for Yuan for gold story maybe premature....

I'll cool my enthusiasm...IF it was going to happen we'd probably already see it reflected in price.

Secondly, all the proceeds of oil sales through a Yuan based exchange will be not be converted into gold as the sellers need currency for their balance of payments and internal budget purposes.

Thirdly, the sellers of gold could convert the profit portion of their oil sales into gold now, which is what I suspect they they would do vis a via the oil for yuan for gold plan,,,,

Who the heck knows until there are official transactions.

Thank you for the wake up....

Not needed for anything. Shows maximum weakness as a human being.

Hail to the Queen!

This map shows countries (in white) that England has never invaded. There are only 22. (In the WORLD!)

Sander - HS Price article on Yuan for gold

I don't quite get it.

Essentially, the Chinese would still be offering 'money' as payment for oil. 'Yuan money' would hold the promise (according to the Chinese), of being exchangeable for gold (if that's what the oil exporter wanted) or it could simply be exchanged for dollars via the LBME (which the the LBME would insist on anyhow and which the Chinese would provide by accepting the return of their Yuan). The question then arises, why bother? Why not just pay the oil exporter in US dollars and get rid of those US dollars that China wanted to get rid of anyhow. If the exporter still wanted gold, they could just take whatever portion of those US dollars to the LBME and demand bullion.

Obviously, I'm confused. Can someone explain?

Last year, I read an interview in one of European papers...

With a North Korean women, well educated, who somehow was able to move to China (didn't like it there) in her late 20s, living now in Indonesia (if I remember correctly)....who said that while in North Korea being up to 25 years of age, she firmly believed that the top country leaders were able to walk over the rainbow, and do almost anything.

Demise of the Dollar ? not so fast

Since most of us read ZH you've likely seen this article already. Quite a few have predicted the imminent demise of the US dollar. But, it is so dominant today that this may not happen without major geo-political events forcing the reset (such as a Big War) -

with you on the NFL. I'm done. Tired of the PC bullshit, from the kneelers, to the fist raisers, to the "hands up don't shoot" antics.

And they can't figure out why ratings are down!
