Increased inequality, sadly and understandably, will lead to more social unrest, war and famine

Greyerz: “Eric, we have a world where the wealth of the 85 richest people is the same as the 3.5 billion poorest. 1.5 billion people must live on $1.25 a day. So the gap between the rich and the poor is at unacceptable levels. Also, the world’s population has exploded in the last 100 years, almost 5-times, from 1.5 billion people to 7 billion people. In the coming economic downturn, which is an economic certainty, we will not only see many of the poor with empty stomachs, but also revolting because of the severe inequalities, with severe social unrest following….

The coming worldwide debacle

Greyerz: “The world has never in history experienced the extent of potentially cataclysmic events that it is now facing. There is a high risk of a major war. With most major nations over-borrowed and bankrupt, it is in my view virtually guaranteed that we will have a worldwide deflationary implosion which will be devastating. But before that, desperate governments and central banks will flood the world with more worthless paper causing a hyperinflationary depression… Read the rest of this entry »

People causing crises stand to gain the most from it – Friedrich&Weik

THE MATTERHORN INTERVIEW:
Marc Friedrich / Matthias Weik – 31 July 2014

Marc-Matthias

In view of the public debate they have raised in Germany, Matterhorn Asset Management is extremely pleased to feature the below written interview Lars Schall did, on our behalf, with Marc Friedrich and Matthias Weik this past week. German economists Friedrich and Weik co-authored two books which unfortunately are still only available in German. In their latest publication, “Der Crash ist die Lösung”, the economists explain from a German and International perspective, in easy to understand language, why “The Crash is the solution” and why this crash will be more catastrophic than the previous one. They describe based on solid economic fundamentals why a ‘final financial collapse’ is on our doorstep. Read the rest of this entry »

Greyerz: “Today there are massively elevated risks in the world both geopolitically and financially. With these risks we could see a change in markets at any time. I see investors in the two biggest markets in the world, bonds and stocks, being totally oblivious of what’s going to hit them. But before this is over, the world will experience asset destruction of a major proportion. I see stock markets coming down 90 percent in real terms (versus gold), and bond rates reaching 20 percent in coming years. At that point we will be looking at a very different world”…… Read the rest of this entry »

Exchange Controls And Perfect Fake Gold & Silver Coins

King World News weekly – July 17, 2014

Greyerz: “Eric, the U.S. dollar hegemony and role as a reserve currency is soon going to come to an end. This will lead to a precipitous fall of the dollar. The further consequences will be severe U.S. exchange controls. It will be virtually impossible for private individuals to transfer any funds out of the United States. It won’t matter if the transfer is for investment purposes or for holiday use. The fall of the dollar will also lead to major pressures in the U.S. economy and the U.S. financial system. So the U.S. will experience bail-ins and the U.S. will see forced transfer of savings into Treasuries as the budget deficit escalates to a much higher level…… Read the rest of this entry »

Gold Manipulators are Desperate

Gold Manipulators are Desparate

From Egon von Greyerz(in reference to Paul Craig Roberts’s latest blog)

With virtually empty gold vaults, the central banks and bullion banks are now becoming desperate.

The action we are seeing in the paper gold market with the recent $50 takedown is yet more proof of the corner that the gold manipulators have put themselves into by having virtually no physical gold left.

A rising gold price is dangerous for the manipulators. This would inevitably lead to more physical demand, something that would be disastrous for the manipulators. As the holders of paper gold begin to realise that neither Comex nor the bullion banks or the Central banks have a fraction of the gold required to satisfy the gold paper claims, they will demand delivery. With the paper gold market being up to 100 times the physical market, there will of course be nowhere near the gold available at current prices to satisfy the outstanding paper claims.

The gold manipulators are going to lose this game. This is a certainty. The only question is when. They have managed to frighten investors by manipulating the price down substantially in the last few years. In spite of that gold has gone from $250 in 1999 to $1,300 today.

Greg Hunter of USAWatchdog.com interviews Egon von Greyerz

July 15 – 2014 (20 minutes)

Egon von Greyerz: I just had the pleasure of being interviewed by Greg Hunter of USA Watchdog during my holiday in the beautiful archipelago of Stockholm.
Amongst other things we discuss the demise of the dollar which of course is timely with the announcement today of a BRICS Contingent Reserve Arrangement. Bail-ins will be the norm as the banking system fights for survival and 2008 will seem like a gentle rehearsal in relation to the calamities that we will see in financial markets as well as geopolitically starting this coming autumn.
