Gold's Role as a Safety Net for the Economic Tightrope Ahead

 

WindRock interviews Alasdair MacLeod, well-known monetary expert and Director of Research at GoldMoney.  Mr. MacLeod addresses such issues as: global money supplies which are now levered to 180 times pre-2008 levels; currency risk throughout the world as central bankers accelerate monetary expansion in light of continued economic weakness; inflation's impoverishing effect upon the very people policy makers hope to help through money printing; and reasons to own physical gold outside of the banking system, including the necessity of avoiding safety deposit boxes.  September 2014.
