Jim Willie: Gold Standard Will Return, Everything in Paper is
Jim Willie is the editor of the “Hat Trick Letter.” He has a PhD in statistics and crunches the numbers on things like gold, currencies and bonds. Jim Willie says, “Gold is the anti-bubble. . . . It is the response to the biggest bubble in the history of the modern world, and that is Treasury bonds.” It was recently reported that the Federal Reserve is buying 90% of all Treasuries. To that, Willie says, “The supply of gold is lacking and demand for Treasuries is evaporating. It’s that simple.” Willie thinks the global economy will not get better because, “. . . they have no solutions, and they are praying they can keep this going.” Like it or not, gold is going to make its way back into the monetary system. Jim Willie contends, “The gold standard will return because gold will be the last asset left standing. Everything in paper is going to go to Hell.” The transition will be very painful. Willie says, “We have a climax bust coming for bonds, currencies and the banking system because they are all interrelated.” Join Greg Hunter as he goes One-on-One with Jim Willie.
