God, Gold and Guns
We’ve been looking into One Nation Under Gold (2017), by James Ledbetter. October 2, 2017: One Nation Under Gold (2017), by James Ledbetter October 14, 2017: One Nation Under Gold #2: The Silliness of the Bretton Woods Years Now, we will follow Ledbetter’s account of the end of Bretton Woods in 1971, up to the present. The account of the 1971 devaluation was, following the pattern of this book, long on details but short on insight. It seemed to people at the time that they “had no choice,” that

  The full guide to Nazi gold and currency war 
This morning’s papers and news-shows are full of the story that in 1939 the Bank of England facilitated the sale of Nazi looted gold, not just once but at least twice during that year. Both times without approval of the British government, despite an attempt to freeze Czech assets. The story of Nazi gold is both fascinating and tragic. We take a look at ‘the greatest robbery of all time’ and draw parallels with the modern day gold migration. What is Nazi gold? Nazi gold is a phrase that refers t

Gold and Silver Trading Down to New Euro Lows as ECB Cuts 42 Words on QE

Reconciling the Us Dollar Outlook with the Super Bullish Gold and Silver Cots...
Because the dollar has such an important bearing on everything, especially the Precious Metals, it is timely for us to take a close look at it here after its recent steep drop, for as some of you may have seen, a number of indicators pertaining to the dollar suggest that, possibly after some further downside it is likely to bounce, or at least take a rest in a sideways range for a while, before the decline perhaps resumes in earnest. We’ll start by looking at a couple of these indicators. The la

Russian Lawmaker Issues Sobering Threat: We’re Willing To Use Nukes To Defend Crimea
As of late, the media has forgotten about tensions between Ukraine, NATO, and Russia. Crimea and the conflict in Eastern Ukraine have largely left the public’s awareness. However, that shouldn’t be the case, because this region is still a powder keg that could blow at any time. And if it does, it could easily result in another world war. If you don’t think the situation in Ukraine could still explode into a wider conflict, take a look at what this member of Russia’s parliament recently said at a

Gold Price Hits 8-Week High as Trump 'Shocks' Nato, UK 'Threatens' EU Over Brexit, Davos Calls for 'Unity'
GOLD PRICES jumped near 8-week highs in wholesale bullion trade Monday as weekend comments from US president-elect Donald Trump about the Nato military alliance caused shock in European capitals, and German politicians rebuked UK threats to slash corporate tax rates if a 'hard Brexit' from the European Union sees Britain lose access to the single market.

European Central Bank gold reserves held across 5 locations. ECB will not disclose Gold Bar List.
The European Central Bank (ECB), creator of the Euro, currently claims to hold 504.8 tonnes of gold reserves. These gold holdings are reflected on the ECB balance sheet and arose from transfers made to the ECB by Euro member national central banks, mainly in January 1999 at the birth of the Euro. As of the end of December 2015, these ECB gold reserves were valued on the ECB balance sheet at market prices and amounted to €15.79 billion.  The ECB very recently confirmed to BullionStar that its gol

Why Did the UK Enter the EU in the First Place
Looking back, one really has to wonder why the UK subjected itself to all the inane EU nannycrat rules and regulations in the first place. I can explain. Many readers sent me this explanation, but I also used it before on my blog long ago. Please consider this clip from the British TV show “Yes Minister”. The clip it is amazingly funny. Play it.

Foreign Exchange Transactions and the "Gold Exchange Standard"
We commonly hear that the world gold standard of the 1920s, reconstructed after World War I, was somehow radically different than the gold standard systems prior to 1913. A meeting in Genoa in 1922 gets a lot of attention. This serves a certain political or rhetorical purpose: first, it allows some people to claim that the gold standard systems of the 1920s, the so-called "gold exchange standard" systems, "weren't really a gold standard," so the gold standard was not to blame for the Great De

Making The World A More Dangerous Place
Without any doubt, the Middle East has been a very long-simmering region of violent religious and tribal enmity. In that regard, perhaps today is no different than 1,000 years ago. But given the importance of the remaining oil in the Middle East to the next 20 years of global economic health, the violence and chaos seen there recently is hugely important to the entire world. But it’s also equally without doubt that the US and NATO are inflaming the situation by provoking conflicts and supplying

Central bank gold at the Bank of England
In a recent article, “How many Good Delivery gold bars are in all the London Vaults?….including the Bank of England vaults“, I considered how much gold is actually in the London Gold Market, and highlighted how the amount of gold stored in the London wholesale market has fallen noticeably in recent years. That article highlighted that the amount of gold stored in custody at the Bank of England (BoE) fell by 350 tonnes during the year to 28 February 2015, after also falling by 755 tonnes during t
