Gold's importance in the uncertain world of today, gold's extreme rarity, liquidity and safe haven currency status is illustrated.


The ‘gold bubble’ and the many gold myths and misconceptions are looked at and the video uses music, images, facts and quotations to show how gold is a proven store of value throughout history and an important diversification today.


Currency debasement of all major currencies is happening today on a scale never before seen in history.


Yet there continues to be a complete lack of awareness amongst the majority in the western world as to the risks posed by our currency monetary and financial system.


There continues to be a lack of knowledge and indeed often wilful ignorance regarding gold.


Indeed, some comments on gold are so ignorant of the historical and academic record that they have all the hallmarks of crude anti-gold propaganda – and will be seen as such in time.


Gold is a proven safe haven asset and currency. Despite much recent academic evidence and the historical record showing this and despite voluminous articles, research and evidence, (evidence succinctly summarised in the video 'Gold Bullion or Cash'), there continue to be frequent anti gold outbursts by some of the most respected and trusted people in the western financial and economic world.


Such attacks on gold have come from men such as Paul Krugman, Nouriel Roubini and more recently Warren Buffett.


Alan Greenspan correctly wrote in 1966 that "an almost hysterical antagonism toward the gold standard is one issue which unites statists of all persuasions”.


Today, an almost hysterical antagonism towards gold bullion as a diversification and as a store of wealth alternative to fiat currencies unites beneficiaries of the current status quo – both intellectual beneficiaries and material beneficiaries.


That status quo is a massively leveraged and insolvent monetary, financial and economic system.


The masses are slowly realising the fundamental unsoundness of our global monetary system and are beginning to ask questions. But they are continually lulled into a false sense of security by the “experts”.


Experts incidentally who failed to warn them about the stock, property and global debt bubbles before it was too late.


Many Greeks today lament that they were not aware of gold as a safe haven and wish they had diversified into gold. These lamentations will be experienced in other debt-laden industrial nations in the coming months and years.


A minority in the western world are seeing through the anti-gold bias and beginning to take action and buy physical bullion as insurance and as protection from significant monetary, systemic, geopolitical and macroeconomic risk.


Crude anti-gold propaganda that is based on sophistry, silly straw man arguments, ad hominem and personal attacks, poor research, inaccuracies and actual fallacies is the stock in trade of what we could be termed the expert "paper bugs".


We would prefer not to have to engage in name calling but unfortunately the likes of Roubini, Krugman and Buffett have tended to engage in ad hominem attacks (accusing those who buy gold or sell gold bullion of being driven by fear or even of creating fear) rather than engage in rational debate regarding the merits of gold as diversification or as financial insurance for one’s and one’s family’s portfolio or life savings.


This shows the intellectual weakness at the heart of the anti-gold proponents' very poor arguments and faulty logic which ignores thousands of years of history and recent excellent academic research.


A few probing questions from a knowledgeable interviewer about simplistic anti-gold opinions would quickly show the weakness of their pronouncements regarding gold.


A hosted TV debate would similarly help enlighten people but we would be surprised if the expert paper bugs would engage in such a debate.


Meanwhile, many of the people and investors who correctly predicted the current crisis - and protected themselves, their families and their clients in the process – continue to advocate a diversification into gold.


Faber, Rogers, Einhorn, Gross and many others have all articulately laid out why they believe gold is an essential diversification in these times.


The video 'Gold Bullion or Cash' clearly shows who is mistaken and who is correct.
