  3. hello Gary

    I’ve just read your informative article, re-Gold price.
    One other scenario I could imagine would be for some brave state to issue a commodity backed currency, a long shot, but what would happen?
    Would it become too valuable to trade! Other currencies, bereft of their smoke n mirrors, standing naked and spent; now that, would be throwing shit at the fan.
    The threat of such a committed action might get some air as a geopolitical tool/lever.
    Considering that financial architecture that can function independently the
    Keynesian model we use, so technically possible…

    We live in exciting and awakening times.

    Your thoughts

    • Just guessing… but a Russian Ruble or Chinese Yuan backed by gold might work. They have strong a strong military and lots of gold. Perhaps a domestic US dollar used only in the US but another currency backed by gold for international trade – just guessing.

  4. Hi Gary,
    I’m a regular reader and appreciate your work.
    Regarding your recent article ‘Gold in 2016’, you reference your Gold Valuation Model which I believe goes back to 1971. Within your recent article you make mention of this valuation model to gain some perspective as to the accuracy of Dent’s price forecasts for Gold.
    Full disclosure, I am in your camp and have been a believer since 2006-7 solely on the basis of what has transpired from a monetary standpoint since Nixon’s declaration in 1971.
    You yourself have stated that there should be a serious reversion at this point or soon “unless we are entering into a deflationary depression”. Well, the last time we had one of those was the 1930’s, the very period that Dent is referring back to in his analysis. Can you please be the first analysist to attempt to negate Dent by adjusting your model back to the last deflationary depression we had as the current period is rhyming much more with the 30’s than the 70’s; i.e. What will happen to gold/silver if we are heading into a 1930’s style depression?

  5. I would like to know about your credentials to comment on the market price and predictions for the future. Are you a CFP or an Investor Analyst? Do you have any certifications from ANA or any other metals marketplace.

    Please Let me know. Thanks!

  7. You appear to have the financial picture with which I concure. I just wonder where you are located simply because being in a metro area during the next several years may develop into a bad situation. I have made a move away from most all metro systems; the nearest is a “junior size” metro area and it’s 90 miles; the next nearest is about 160 miles. Having a paid-up home adjacent to a small town will prove to be, in my opinion, more important than having precious metals.

  8. You cannot have a constitutional republic minus people with morality and a belief in the absolute. It really is to bad the bankers have made slaves of us by abolishing the use of honest money and making you a criminal if you use it.

    anyway around that?
