Nielson: Probability of U.S. Hyperinflation or a Debt Implosion Increasing by the Day – Got Gold?

The collapse of U.S. economy is a certainty – only the manner of the economic collapse has yet to be determined. In time the global derivatives bubble will produce the same result which has occurred to every other currency not backed by gold throughout history: those currencies, our “money”, will become worthless.  Words: 1433

Lorimer Wilson, editor of www.FinancialArticleSummariesToday.com, provides below  further reformatted and edited excerpts from Jeff Nielson’s (www.BullionBullsCanada.com)  original 7000 word speech* at the “World Money Show” in Vancouver for the sake of clarity and brevity to ensure a fast and easy read as follows:

Derivatives: An Unregulated $1 Quadrillion Market
Warren Buffett famously described derivatives as “financial weapons of mass destruction”, and for a very good reason. While U.S. “unfunded liabilities” are larger than the entire global economy, the derivatives bubble is twenty times as large as the entire global economy.

The derivative market is unregulated. It is totally lacking in “transparency”, meaning that all we know about this $1 quadrillion mountain of banker-paper is what the bankers tell us. During the 2008 U.S. financial crisis, the Wall Street banks required $10 trillion in loans/hand-outs/guarantees just to temporarily prevent their bankruptcy – more than all other bail-outs/hand-outs for all the rest of the world, for all of history, combined – and the entire crisis was based upon settling the derivatives positions of only one company: Lehman Brothers – a Wall Street investment bank.

Even that $10 trillion was not enough to prevent the collapse of the U.S. financial sector. The Wall Street banks also needed to have the U.S. accounting rules changed, so that they could assign their own “fantasy valuations” to the debts/assets on their books, instead of the actual market value of those assets. Keep in mind that without the most-radical accounting changes in history, instead of these Wall Street banks reporting (supposed) “record profits” they would be reporting their own bankruptcies.

All Is NOT As It Seems

While they brag about “billions” in supposed profits, there are still trillions of dollars of “toxic assets” being hidden off of their balance sheets. We know there has been no increase in the real value of these “assets” through the reports of failed U.S. banks. In just two years, the average amount of losses sitting on the books of these banks when they collapse are now five times as large (relative to the value of their assets) as when the first bank-failures occurred. Thus, if anything, these “toxic assets” are even more worthless than when the collapse began.

Despite this huge mountain of unstable debt, Wall Street actually increased the size of the derivatives bubble by 30% since the U.S. housing-bubble first burst causing Neil Barofsky, the U.S. “watch-dog” assigned to oversee the “TARP” bail-out of U.S. banks, to exclaim recently that the risk of collapse of the entire U.S. financial sector has increased not decreased saying:

“Even if TARP saved our financial system from driving off a cliff back in 2008, absent meaningful reform, we are still driving on the same winding road, but this time in a faster car.”

A Serious Dilemma Faces Investors 

There is no solution for the U.S.’s economic problems. With U.S. hyperinflation likely, but a deflationary collapse still possible, this not only creates a frightening scenario for us to face as individuals, but a serious dilemma for investors. Do you prepare for deflation, or hyperinflation – or, is it possible to prepare for both?  Such a defensive investment philosophy is called “wealth preservation” and, in my opinion, investors need a precious metals component in their portfolios, because for thousands of years, precious metals have been the best investment vehicle for wealth preservation. Why is that? Because they are currencies which cannot be diluted through inflation or destroyed by imploding debt.

The 4 Qualities of Good Money

1. Uniform  Uniformity simply means that any one unit of currency is identical to all others. In the case of gold and silver, any gold or silver coin is identical to all others. Conversely, gem-stones (which have been used as “money” in previous eras) are not of identical quality/composition, and thus gem-stones have not been able to stand the test of time as a form of money.

2. Evenly divisible  Being evenly divisible is self-explanatory. With gold and silver being very malleable, and having a low melting-point, these two metals have always been evenly divisible. In comparison, gem-stones (for example) are not capable of being equally divided.

3. Rare or “precious”   Gold and silver are “rare” in that they are less-common than almost all other metals. They are “precious” because their aesthetic qualities are also superor to other metals. Thus, gold and silver are precious and rare.

Conversely, while paper “money” is both uniform and evenly divisible, it is neither rare nor precious. The paper it is printed on has no intrinsic or aesthetic value, while paper money literally does “grow on trees”. This provides a very interesting perspective on the old saying that “money does not grow on trees”.

4. A  “store of value”   Ultimately, what is most important for any “good money” is that it must be a store of value. Indeed, it could be argued that the first three characteristics simply explain why gold and silver are a “store of value”, while paper money is not. However, regardless of the physical characteristics of money, the true test for any “good money” is how well it retains the wealth of the holder.

Once again, there is no comparison between precious metals and paper currency. In the less than 100 years that the Federal Reserve has existed, the U.S. dollar has lost approximately 97% of its purchasing power.

It important to understand the above properties of “good money” because, contrary to the economic propaganda from the mainstream media, current events are unparallelled throughout all of history:
– more countries are carrying debts than at any time in history
– the aggregate size of these debts are more than ten times greater than at any other time in history
– the whole world is off of a “gold standard” for the first time in history – meaning there is nothing “backing” all these mountains of debt.

What Happens to Money During a Deflationary Implosion or a Hyperinflationary Scenario?

a) Hyperinflationary Scenario
Gold and silver have always retained 100% of their value in past hyperinflationary environment while paper instruments (money) have gone to zero.

b) Deflationary Implosion
The circumstances surrounding a potential deflationary collapse are unique this time round in that we are not talking about a “recession” or even a “depression”, but instead about entire nations effectively going bankrupt by defaulting on their massive debts. With none of the world’s currencies backed by anything, paper “money” is now essentially nothing but the unsecured “IOUs” of the governments issuing those currencies. As such:

1. if/when these governments were to start defaulting, then billions (trillions?) of dollars of government bonds would have very “questionable” value – if not become totally worthless
2. if/when government bonds became worthless, then the paper currencies of those governments would also become worthless
3. if/when government bonds became worthless, then the government would have no ability to borrow any money to fund government spending – and would have no choice but to simply print unlimited (infinite) amounts of un-backed paper money that would be nothing more than “unsecured IOUs” which begs the question: What is the value of an IOU from a debtor who has already defaulted on his debts? Answer: zero.

In both scenarios, paper currencies would go to zero. Where a deflationary implosion differs from hyperinflation is that in such an implosion, all asset-prices become severely depressed – which is why generally during deflations people move to cash. However, because that cash itself could easily become worthless, that is why you need to hold “good money” – and the only “good money” is gold and silver. For more information on “What’s Coming: A Hyperinflationary or a Deflationary Depression” please refer to: http://www.munknee.com/2010/06/11534/

Conclusion
In either a deflationary implosion or a hyperinflation scenario, some (and perhaps all) paper currencies will go to zero. In contrast, during the nearly 5,000 years that gold and silver have been used as “money” by our species, they have never lost a significant portion of their value.

Gold and silver represent the ultimate “stores of value” – and thus the best protection from the events which lie ahead. [Got gold?]

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's happening big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale".

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally IU know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know people in court at the moment for the content they had on their secret private group. Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. Or if you need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA to hack into if you are that paranoid. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install and other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering bollox) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.

Why?

Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
