    You do realize there’s a lag time between inflation and expansion right?

    If you calculate the numbers the way the government used to before they “fixed them” inflation is near 10%.

    Anyone who shops knows this to be the case where the money is flowing.
    Food, Energy, Etc.

    I don’t buy the idea that we value gold because it’s shiny. Lots of shiny things are worthless. The value of gold these days is mostly in jewelry and tradition. Diamonds are worth more so why not use them? The problem of refinement and scarcity remains.

    The idea behind Bitcoin allows for an expanding economy without runaway inflation. It’s more effective and allows our economy to keep growing unrestricted by scarcity of a mineral.

    Wow so much wrong… Firstly it was after WWI, secondly it was only Germany that experience hyper inflation, third the hyper inflation was being brought back under control before WWII, fourth gold doesn’t protect against hyper inflation if the supply can be increased. Spain suffered sever hyper inflation back during the early colonial years due to a massive influx in gold from the new world. Lastly The opium wars war kicked off because China was hoarding all the silver from Europe.

    But there is enough silver, platinum, gold, diamonds and other precious materials to back up the paper. We got away from notes. They stated that there was precious material to back the paper. The note was a guarantee that gold existed to be used for purchase. Ever since we got away from that we have seen our dollar SPIRAL downward and out of control. They keep printing more, thus devaluing it further. Get back to notes, quit allowing banks to loan it irresponsibly and get honest people to manage

    $1000 in gold. While the dollar drops, gold stays constant. Give me the gold.

    Some might say the point is that gold is valuable to a point that it’ll never lose it’s value. We are greedy humans who like shiny things and gold has kept it’s value through the years. It’s a measuring stick, with which to measure the value of paper currency. If we have gold to back our paper, then our currency is strong and we’re not stretching the worth of our dollar. Otherwise what’s to stop our government from printing whatever they want to do whatever they want? Oh, they already are…….

    When we have: Africa for Africans, Asia for Asians, White Countries for EVERYBODY, what do we have over periods of time?
    We have fewer and fewer White children
    When we mix more and more non-Whites with fewer and fewer Whites in the same living space?
    In time, White extinction. Its genocide because this doesn’t happen by chance. It is being forced upon Whites just like a rapist does not take no for an answer
    How is this not White geNOcide?
    Anti-racist is a code for anti-white

    “Multiculturalism” is a program that is FORCED upon EVERY & ONLY White countries.
    “Multiculturalism” is a program to turn EVERY White country into a non-White country.
    This IS geNOcide. WHITE geNOcide.
    If you are White, and you object to your own geNOcide, you are called a RACIST!
    Well guess what, my people, White people, are catching on very quickly to the following two things:
    1 — Multiculturalism is a code for White geNOcide.
    2 — Anti-racist is a code for anti-White.

    A few peers of mine are looking to raise investment funds for an online platform that would circumvent commercial banks for entrepreneurial finance. I don’t know all the specifics of their model, but it’s definitely something worth looking at because it would mean an end to the ponzi scheme banking system. They’re still looking for funding, but you can contact or help their cause by visiting gofundme (dot) com / changingbanking

    con·de·scend·ing

    Adjective:
    1. Acting in a way that betrays a feeling of patronizing superiority.

    Note how the definition in no way indicates actual intelligence or ability. Usually the person being condescending merely has a false sense of superiority and reacts with anger when challenged.

    As you just did.

    Your argument presuppose a future where the world economy will collapse and you assume people will value gold. Gold still has no INHERENT value. Try bread and bullets instead.

    Condescending? I shouldn’t have to say sorry because I tend to write/speak at the level my education and upbringing allows me to. Simply imagine an actual large crisis. No power, no heat, stores emptied and all you have is your plastic. The binary bank account ain’t workin’ yo. You want some of the food I have stored away. Maybe a blanket etc. Those that have will only be taking cash for a while but if it lasts a long time, your bling is the new money. Just look at a Rap Star lol it’s survival!

    It wouldn’t bother me if idiots like that weren’t deliberately spreading ignorance. Stupid I can forgive and the benighted can be taught.

    But the greedy and ignorant? I think once upon a time we used to shoot them. Now they manage hedge funds.

    The value of gold crashed in the market last month and there’s still no sign of hyper inflation after 3 solid years of monetary expansion. Yet all the Paulbots on the net are still having orgasms over the same tired tricks of old poppa Ron. Evidence doesn’t seem to matter to some people.

    I wouldn’t worry about it. You seem to be the only one so far in this comment section to have any idea what their talking about. This gold fetish stuff shows just how ignorant most people are of economics science.

    It would help if you weren’t so bloody condescending. Secondly, you’re just pitching gold because it will improve your own position. Thirdly, you can’t refute me because you don’t have a sound argument. So stop being a prick.

    Gold is money and should be our money because generally speaking its amount is fixed; therefore it allows a free market economy to easily express change and value. Inflation, deflation, and creating money from thin air are to my knowledge impossible if we and other countries used gold and maybe silver as our only standard currency. Hell yes Ron Paul! If no one else wanted to tell the truth, you did, and you did it articulatively.

    The Gold Standard is not the way of the future. In the past certain societies used aluminum, copper etc as a form of money, but eventually more advanced refinement methods made inflation so high these substances became worthless. Today we use aluminum foil in kitchens and copper wiring everywhere. The same could happen for gold. Solutions are not found in the past but in the future. The future is Bitcoin.

    Gold is a heavy shiny metal with few industrial uses. To say “gold has value” is to say that any object has value.

    Is gold special because it is one of the oldest arbitrary mediums of exchange after hand-carved stone tokens? Okay, maybe a little. But I’d MUCH rather have my plastic card and a strip of ones and zeroes in a bank computer than a bag of shiny metal flakes.

    There is nothing more than the exact same faith keeping gold afloat as it does paper or plastic cards.
