Gold is God’s Money
Gold is God’s money. It is independent of authority and holds value based on the agreement of two or more parties in trade; not because the government says so.
Conservatives know that government solutions one day — become big problems the next day with liberals demanding another solution. So the cycle repeats. Such is the case in America and worldwide right now. This is why gold is set to perform extraordinary well in 2021.
At its core, gold is money. It does not carry risk and because of that, gold does not generate a yield. Therefore, the price of gold is based on a reaction to events. The price typically moves with supply and demand. When people are concerned about loss in the markets, war or nearly any other form of “bad times,” they buy gold.
Since gold’s price for Americans is valued in dollars, when citizens lose faith in the government (who issues the currency) or other systems of society, investors strip the vaults clean of gold and silver, leading to price increases. As the warning signs mount for a collapse of the western Judeo-Christian way of life, gold will rally into 2021.
“I don’t think it’s the end of the world, I just think it’s the end of a system that has in fact collapsed three times in the past 100 years.” – Jim Rickards
Gold is Special, It’s Unlike Any Other Currency In the World
Sanat Kumar, a chemical engineer from Columbia University, broke down the periodic table to show why gold has been used as a monetary metal for thousands of years, and will continue to be used for thousands more.
The Periodic Table
The periodic table organizes 118 elements in rows by increasing atomic number (periods) and columns (groups) with similar electron configurations.
Just as in today’s animation, let’s apply the process of elimination to the periodic table to see why gold is money:
- Gases and Liquids
Noble gases (such as argon and helium), as well as elements such as hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen, fluorine and chlorine are gaseous at room temperature and standard pressure. Meanwhile, mercury and bromine are liquids. As a form of money, these are implausible and impractical.
- Lanthanides and Actinides
Next, lanthanides and actinides are both generally elements that can decay and become radioactive. If you were to carry these around in your pocket they could irradiate or poison you.
- Alkali and Alkaline-Earth Metals
Alkali and alkaline earth metals are located on the left-hand side of the periodic table, and are highly reactive at standard pressure and room temperature. Some can even burst into flames.
- Transition, Post Transition Metals, and Metalloids
There are about 30 elements that are solid, nonflammable, and nontoxic. For an element to be used as money it needs to be rare, but not too rare. Nickel and copper, for example, are found throughout the Earth’s crust in relative abundance.
- Super Rare and Synthetic Elements
Osmium only exists in the Earth’s crust from meteorites. Meanwhile, synthetic elements such as rutherfordium and nihonium must be created in a laboratory.
Once the above elements are eliminated, there are only five precious metals left: platinum, palladium, rhodium, silver and gold. People have used silver as money, but it tarnishes over time. Rhodium and palladium are more recent discoveries, with limited historical uses.
Platinum and gold are the remaining elements. Platinum’s extremely high melting point would require a furnace of the Gods to melt back in ancient times, making it impractical. This leaves us with gold. It melts at a lower temperature and is malleable, making it easy to work with.
Gold does not dissipate into the atmosphere, it does not burst into flames, and it does not poison or irradiate the holder. It is rare enough to make it difficult to overproduce and malleable to mint into coins, bars, and bricks. Civilizations have consistently used gold as a material of value.
Perhaps modern societies would be well-served by looking at the properties of gold, to see why it has served as money for millennia, especially when someone’s wealth could disappear in a click.
2021 is Gold’s Year
The 2021 gold rally is not a story that begins with the impeachment of Donald Trump in January of 2020 or the second round of lockdowns completing the destruction of small businesses in December of 2020. Rather, the 2021 gold spike was set up to happen many years ago, beginning in 1980.
For thirty years global interest rates have been declining around the world from a risk-free rate of nearly 16% in 1980 to below 1% in 2021. This has built up an unsustainable level of debt around the world, obvious to even the casual observer as debt expansion is increasing at a parabolic rate.
Debts must be expanded to bail-out the ultra-wealthy and to finance the power elite. The Federal Reserve has increased money supply by 67% in 2020 alone. Therefore, 2021 will be remembered as the year that the debt-based financial system Central Bank interventionist model became impotent and the Christian western world transitioned from capitalism to a NWO Chinese-Communist style authoritarian model of command economy.
In fact, Gita Gopinath – Chief Economist of the International Monetary Fund – penned an open letter to the global financial elite providing a road map for the next stage of monetary and fiscal regime. Gopinath – among nearly ever financial talking head lap dog of big government and big banks – recognize that their former solution to economic crisis (printing money and lowering interest rates) have lost their stimulative efficacy – a liquidity trap. Gopinath writes:
“This is a once in a lifetime crisis [a global liquidity trap has formed worldwide]. For the first time, in 60 per cent of the global economy — including 97 per cent of advanced economies — central banks have pushed policy interest rates below 1 per cent. In one-fifth of the world, they are negative. Yet such policies are limited in their ability to stimulate demand. Solvency risks now predominate. Fiscal authorities can actively support demand through cash transfers to support consumption and large-scale investment in medical facilities, digital infrastructure and environment protection.” (Gopinath, 2020).
In other words, lowering interest rates and printing new money has been effective way to “kick the can down the road” and “save the economy from crisis” for a long time. However now, the can is so dented, flatten and torn up that kicking hardly has an effect. The point is that the power elite need a new and more effective way to, “save” the current system from collapse — which was created and made worse by their own, “solutions” to former economic crisis (ie printing money).
21% of All Us Dollars Were Printed in 2020
The chart above shows the printing of the US dollars from 1990 to today. A staggering 21% of all US dollars were printed this year and the Feds final attempts to salvage the sinking dollar nears the end of the road.
As you have now seen, the case for gold in 2021 is not a matter of if but exactly when and how high gold will soar. Getting ahead of the market means protection and wealth for your future and your family.
We started the article by stating that Gold is God’s money and that’s exactly how we’ll end it. This has been the case for centuries and will continue to be so as the next Gold Rush rapidly approaches.
