After four articles from crypto world, you’re probably ready to read something about real money. The fact that Russia and China have been accumulating thousands of tons of physical gold bullion for the last 10 years is not news. What is news is that both countries are starting to make moves toward the end game of a gold-backed currency that completely bypasses the U.S. dollar payments system.

These moves are both geopolitical and monetary. In fact, they track the gold-based attack on the U.S. dollar that I devised for the Pentagon in their first-ever financial war game in 2009. That financial war game is described in detail in my 2011 book, Currency Wars.

Based on this article, it looks like the Russians and Chinese read my book! According to Russian government officials attending a recent monetary conference in Moscow, Russia, China and their BRICS allies are moving toward their own gold trading system (bypassing London and New York). From there it’s a small step toward a new gold-backed digital currency using distributed ledger technology and military-grade encryption.

Once that’s up and running the BRICS can trade and settle oil, commodities, weapons, manufactured goods and the overall balance of payments without using dollars or Western financial intermediaries at all. And from there, a global loss of confidence in the dollar is not far behind. The big winner in all of this will be gold.

The climate alarmists have grabbed most of the headlines for the past ten

We all remember that “experts” said Hillary Clinton would win the presidency in 2016 (they gave her a 92% chance on the morning of the election), and that the UK would vote to “remain” in the EU

The elites never rest when it comes to devising new ways to take your money through taxes, inflation or outright confiscation.

KRUGMAN SHOWS HE KNOWS LITTLE ABOUT ECONOMICS AND LESS ABOUT FINANCE

We already knew that Nobel Prize winner Paul Krugman knows almost nothing about economics. Now, we see from this article that he knows nothing about banking either. Krugman claims that the repeal of Glass-Steagall and the actions of banks in general were not the cause of the 2008 financial crisis. The conventional wisdom is that Lehman Brothers,
