      Yep listening to your vids & looking @ the fact they were published 7 yrs ago. We've been heading 100mph for a brick wall & were at the point milliseconds prior to crashing where the realization of reality sets in & people are thinking oh sh@* this is actually happening. . . I am really going to crash. It was all fun & games upto that point. I'm popping popcorn now! 😁

    If it can't be increased, what are they digging up?
    Also other planets would have gold.. making the supply of gold infinite.
    Therefore Bitcoin would be a better store big value.

  • The Culmination of Truth

    But buying and selling Gold is terribly inconvient and expensive. There has to be a better and faster medium of exchange than paying X% of the price in fees or waiting MONTHS to obtain Gold/Silver.
    Also, why not put the money in a Gold EFT (GLD, GDX) instead of buying physical Gold ?

    When crap hits the fan in this country (and it already is). Can you tell me how Gold or Silver is going to feed the people of this country when they have no food, water, guns etc; In other words, if I have no food and someone comes to me and says they will give me two gold coins in exchange for extra water that I have BUT will not trade me for food they have and I need, how does this help me? The bottom line is that paper money as well as Gold & Silver are also based upon belief and are of no ommediate help in an economic emergency or dire situation. If people all need an item, these monies (?) will not suffice. Sorry kids, Daddy doesn't have food but he has Gold & Silver.

    • Tom Mason
      Tom Mason 20 hours ago

      @GmanXRP Actually, I fully understand what the Federal Reserve is it's a private corporation and I in no way shape or form trust them. As the Federal Reserve lends money, they claim a stake (own) in private business. When sh-t REALLY hits the fan, Gold and Silver will NOT feed anyone, food will. No one will accept Gold or Silver if they need food and everyone else needs an actual product. If you have bullets and I need bullets, I will trade you for what you need should I have it. I can't eat (and neither can you) Gold & Silver. Neither Gold Nor Silver will keep me warm or safe. Neither Gold nor Silver can fill my empty stomach. If I am not correct, you profit when someone buys Gold & Silver, is that correct? What the real threat here is panic. More people have died from the flue then this virus, this is about government power and nothing more. Barter is the way to go because when you need your "fix" of Cigarettes or Coffee, I will have it but Gold or Silver won't buy it. a can of beans might. I get the Dollar is not supported by anything but it has been for many years, the belief. IF sh-t hits the fan belief will give way to real need and vices, be ready with those things.

    • GmanXRP
      GmanXRP 21 hour ago

      I used to think like that as well so didn't buy any G & S but now that I understand it, I am glad I did. When you do have to go buy food, it will have gone up in price & then when you sell, your G & S will have kept up with inflation & you will be able to buy more.... There will be some people who will trade & you forget that silver was the main currency in the US for decades. Heard of a silver dollar?? It is just that we are not taught about money at school, how it is created etc. From what you are saying, it seems that you trust the Federal Reserve, a private company, which creates money from nothing with no backing, is a better bet?? It's just toilet paper & people have been brainwashed into thinking it has value. A 'dollar' is a unit of weight, usually silver, not fake Fed 'notes'. And if they will not trade for food, don't give them your water. Simple really.

      @GmanXRP so if the demand is way higher than the supply of gold, that's why its value is the same?

      yes but it is a limited supply & only comes out of the ground at certain rates & there will be more people wanting than being produced. Supply vs demand.

    Great series! Amazing information. Just to add.
    In most of Arabia post Islam and other countries that adopted this religion. This continued.
    1 Gold Dinar = 4.25grams.
    1 Silver Dirham = 2.98 Grams
    These were used as a medium of exchange for higher value goods and everyday items alongside non-perishable items as currency such as rice, wheat, barley, salt etc in all Islamic governed countries for around 1400 years. Purchasing power was maintained.

    The irony in showing a silly graph that states gold keeps magically going up in value -- when that value is literally compared to and with the U.S. dollar. Let me explain why people are fools to think any one trading method is eternal: Imagine in 2030, a religious cult (an extremely successful one that spreads to 90% of the world) decides that gold (or insert literally any currency medium here) is "evil." Its value then drops to $0.00. Gold is then literally worthless and even holding it or having it gets you a death sentence. This is a wild, exaggerated example, but you need to understand that the people promoting gold are literally GOLD SALESMEN. They're using fear to sell their product. Imagine you buy your net worth's amount in gold, based on all this information -- then the economy bottoms out. Okay, now you have your net worth's amount in gold. What do you do with it? You trade it to literally eat food, have a place to stay, et cetera. You will lose your net worth's amount within six to twelve months most likely. It won't magically save you or make you rich. I'm not saying not to invest in gold, but people need to stop seeing it as a magic saviour of the world's trading systems, because it's definitely not. Gold, paper money, they all just purchase what people collectively believe they can purchase.

    Just 2 Qs if anyone can answer: 1) Would it be a good idea to go back to a gold backed currency? The thing is that even though the currency is backed by gold, central banks can still inflate the currency via fractional reserve banking so I don't know how this will solve the problem and 2) Why is it that US dollars will come flooding in back into USA when other countries don't want it? Wouldn't the US need to agree to accept them for this high inflation to kick in?

    There will be much more people in the future, the gold reserves are limited, so you won't be able to make everyone have the same aamout of gold as today. But in the long term, there will be less gold to buy much more goods, thats makes sence. Gold doesn't provide you with any dividends whatsowever, its just great tool as money, but Today you'll gonn'a pay for holding the gold and silver a comission like you're paying for insurance. Its not an investment, it's insurance!

    There is no such thing as "real money." Even gold and silver are "fiat" currency in that their only" value" (as exchangeable for goods/services) is backed by government. All money is fiat rooted in man's law. There is no intrinsic value in gold and silver aside from what it can function as metals, i.e. jewelry, art. Sure, you cannot create these metals but assigning them numerical values is still fiction and not "real" in any objective sense. All monetary systems are "subjective" which is why they fail and create a power differential... whether its gold, paper, or electronic. They are all control systems of hierarchical control... where does any money come from?? The dark rulers of this planet.
    Where did gold come from? The gold mines in Eygpt that were mined with slave labor... and still many mines operate that today. So the business monopoly on gold mines should rule the world? It's all bogus. You create a system of money you create a system of rulers and slaves.
