Goldman Sachs Loses Money So Gold Prices Fall | Culture of Life News
Bloomberg knows very well the answer to this question: How Does Norway Achieve Inflation When Others Can’t? – Bloomberg Business but will NOT tell readers of his ‘news’.
Once upon a time, the only thing one could park in a central bank vault to support the value of paper money was GOLD. And silver. All coins of responsible societies were made from copper, gold and silver. Countries with fake money used cheap metals like zinc. Paper money was invented by the Chinese to replace gold only they discovered this created inflation due to money printing and adding zeros is laughably easy.
ALFRED Graph – ALFRED – St. Louis Fed: Starting in the 1990’s, our government and Europe’s elites all removed the very vital energy and food data from inflation statistics which then allowed them to devalue capital from savings and have artificially low interest rates. This, in turn, has made speculators and bankers very, very rich and spawned one equity/asset bubble after another. Which, in turn, has driven many governments deep into debt and wrecked the banking system and made everyone who is middle class and poorer, much, much poorer.

I noticed the other day that Abe went to Davos, Switzerland, to boast about how he fixed Japan’s economic problems via debasing the currency as much as possible thus enabling higher export profits with the US and EU.

This game meant NO CAPITAL was needed for lending and bankers lent money they didn’t have to all and sundry with wild abandon. Then, when debt deals went bankrupt, there was no capital base to cover losses and the entire system suddenly collapsed in 2008.
For many, many years, at least two decades, I have written extensively about the deflationary trap Japan fell into and cannot escape. Japan is literally dying. It is literally being ground apart by both Mother Nature and the Japanese Industrial complex disasters. And it is being propped up by the US as a means of defying dynamic, growing, active China. This is a total failure and easy to see why. A dying, disintegrating culture can’t project power or run things, it is in barely-survival mode and rapidly literally dying. Continue reading
