BRITS – GOLD MORE LIKELY TO SAVE YOU THAN ATLAS

by Egon von GreyerzMay 30, 2019

Will Atlas save the world? Global debt of $250 trillion can neither be serviced nor ever repaid. More likely, it will continue to grow exponentially until the world financial system collapses under the weight of the debt plus unfunded pension and medical liabilities of at least $250 trillion plus de […]

WITHOUT GOLD THE WEALTHY WILL BE WIPED OUT

by Egon von GreyerzMay 24, 2019

The massive explosion of wealth in the world could be a sign of general prosperity but that is certainly very far from the truth. The printed money and credit expansion has only benefited a very small minority. The gap between the rich and the poor is getting ever wider but it will soon shrink drama […]

COMING ECONOMIC COLLAPSE GUARANTEES SOCIALISM

by Egon von GreyerzMay 17, 2019

How can a small clique of gold owners holding less than 0.5% of world financial assets be right? They are clearly a minuscule minority of obstinate goldbugs and contrarians who are living in the past. Or do these people see something that the majority of investors don’t? […]

MOVES IN GOLD & SILVER WILL BE 1970S ON STILTS

by Egon von GreyerzMay 9, 2019

My long standing target for gold of $10,000 in today’s money and much, much higher in inflationary terms, is now more probable than ever. But I hope it will never be achieved. When gold goes to $10,000, it won’t be under the same circumstances that we saw in the 1970s. Gold then went from $35 in […]

THE GOLD MAGINOT LINE WILL SOON BREAK

by Egon von GreyerzMay 2, 2019

Why do 99.9% of investors not own gold? Due to my interest and activity, I clearly meet a higher percentage than the 0.1% who both understand and own gold. But I also meet a lot of people who have been indoctrinated by their investment advisors and the media about gold’s uselessness. Most of these […]

CHINA HOLDS THE GOLD AND WILL MAKE THE RULES

by Egon von GreyerzApril 25, 2019

Gold is the ultimate insurance against a bankrupt financial system, a corrupt political system and a rotten monetary system. But official propaganda, combined with people’s greed, mean that virtually nobody understands the necessity of insuring against these risks. Also, investors are convinced th […]

95% STOCK MARKET LOSS AND A CAN TOO BIG TO KICK

by Egon von GreyerzApril 18, 2019

Will the average stock portfolio gain 1,900% to make up for the coming 95% fall? This is the unenviable task that investors will be facing in years to come. Six weeks ago I wrote about Alfred, a 74 year old man who during his life made a $14 million fortune in stocks by always being invested in th […]

SILVER SHORTAGES ARE HERE AND GOLD SCARCITY IS COMING

by Egon von GreyerzApril 12, 2019

MMT is the socialists’ dream. It officially stands for Modern Monetary Theory but a more appropriate name would be More Money Theory. Because MMT is just a fancy name to justify more money printing, more deficits and more debts. Socialists love MMT, because for a sovereign nation, it justifies con […]

“MAINTAIN STABLE PRICES” – WHO ARE THE CENTRAL BANKS KIDDING?

by Egon von GreyerzApril 3, 2019

One of the Fed’s three main objectives is to maintain stable prices. But they have never achieved that at least not since 1971. Again, the Fed did a volte face because they have a total inability to read the economy. The clueless Fed overslept and realised a few years too late that the US economy […]

THE BIGGEST SHORT & THE SPECTACULAR LONG

by Egon von GreyerzMarch 28, 2019

The astonishing Fed again proved the consistency of its inconsistency. Since its creation in 1913, and especially after WWII, the Fed has always been behind the curve. It is hard to believe that this is just incompetence. The recent change of policy hardly seems to be part of a plan but rather anoth […]

ONLY GOLD STANDS AGAINST THE FINAL CATASTROPHE

by Egon von GreyerzMarch 21, 2019

Have the Ides of March been delayed in 2019? Normally the Ides of March just means the date March 15th. Shakespeare made the expression ominous as it was the day that Julius Caesar was murdered. Today in 2019, the 29th of March seems more significant than the 15th. Because on the 29th, we first hav […]

3 DOZEN REASONS TO HOLD GOLD

by Egon von GreyerzMarch 14, 2019

The world financial system has been in a euphoric state since 2009. It seems that the Keynesians, like Krugman or the Modern Money Theorists (MMT) are right after all. All asset markets are near the highs and show little sign of changing direction. As Treasury Secretary Mellon said in September 1929 […]

STOCK INVESTORS, LIKE ALFRED, TO LOSE 98% OF THEIR INVESTMENT

by Egon von GreyerzFebruary 28, 2019

Imagine a casino full of slot machines that all guarantee a constant high return. All you need to do is to put in a bit of money and you will get an incredible income stream for life. Well, this is exactly what the stock market is, namely a remarkable slot machine with a continuous flow of guarant […]

6,250 YEAR OLD BULL STILL GOING STRONG

by Egon von GreyerzFebruary 22, 2019

Is a total collapse of the financial system next or will we see the globalists taking control of the world? Either way, the world is now at one of the most critical crossroads ever in history. Shakespeare expressed it eloquently in Julius Caesar: […]

THE CHINESE AND MAGINOT GOLD LINES

by Egon von GreyerzFebruary 14, 2019

There are critical moments in time that can change history. This week I will talk about two lines which are extremely important, as these two lines will change the world for years to come. The first is a Chinese Gold Line which is linked strongly to China’s history. That line has an important conn […]

“THE VALUE OF THE DOLLAR HAS NO GUARANTEE WHATSOEVER”

by Egon von GreyerzFebruary 6, 2019

The statement above is of course totally accurate for a country running budget and trade deficits for over half a century with a total debt, including unfunded liabilities, in the hundreds of trillions of dollars. It could have been said today, but it actually dates back to August 1971 when the […]

DE GAULLE CONVINCED NO US GOLD LEFT

by Egon von GreyerzJanuary 31, 2019

Tinker, tailor, soldier, sailor, rich man, poor man, beggar man, thief

This old nursery rhyme, or counting game, dating back from the late 17th century, could be seen as a prediction of things to come. Many people, from various backgrounds, could soon […]

IF YOU UNDERSTAND GOLD – YOU ARE NOT A GOLDBUG

by Egon von GreyerzJanuary 24, 2019

What is a Goldbug? If we look at Wikipedia, they define it as “a person who is extremely bullish on the commodity gold as an investment and or a standard for measuring wealth …… goldbug can also be used as a pejorative”. Investopedia states that “A gold bug is an individual who is very ent […]

GOLD – THE ONLY SAFE PLACE

by Egon von GreyerzJanuary 17, 2019

In 2019 the investment world will start to realise that asset markets don’t grow to heaven as stocks, bonds and property start their long journey down which will eventually lead to declines of 75% to 95% in real terms. But the major risk is not just investment markets. Just as important is counter […]

TIMES A-CHANGIN’ – BUT GOLD PERMANENT

by Egon von GreyerzJanuary 11, 2019

Long term holders of gold have a different perspective of the world. They are not believers in instant gratification. Nor do they believe that a world based on money printing and debt can create sustainable wealth. They also know that the socialism which has spread like a plague in the Western world […]
