Die Schweiz als Modell für den Rest der Welt – Teil II

„Die Demokratie, die wir kennen, muss scheitern, und so viele Menschen werden enttäuscht sein, dass sie sich eventuell gemeinsam gegen die Demokratie wenden. Ursache ist aber nur ein ganz spezieller Fehler unseres demokratischen Systems. Es ist überhaupt nicht notwendig, dass Demokratie ein allmächtiges Parlament bedeuten muss. Die meiste Zeit der neueren Geschichte zeigt das Ringen …


Während sich das Abendland weiterhin auf seinen jahrhundertelangen Abstieg in starre Zentralisierung, allgegenwärtige Regulierung und monetäre Manipulation bewegt, erkennen mehr und mehr Bürger, vor allem Sparer und Anleger, dass ihre Eigentumsrechte, ihre Privatsphäre und ihre finanzielle Souveränität immer stärker eingeschränkt werden. Erhebliche Regierungsgewalt und erhöhte Machtstellung über Wirtschaft und Märkte scheinen, trotz der giftigen Konsequenzen …

Death knell tolls for the euro as more European nations repatriate gold – expert to RT

The latest trend among European countries of bringing home their gold reserves has been raising concerns in Brussels. RT talked to Claudio Grass of Precious Metal Advisory Switzerland to understand what’s behind that trend. According to Grass, the process means disintegration, which usually comes with instability, unrest, more government intervention and control. “The central banks …


Mehr als 80 Jahre war die Schweizerische Nationalbank eine unabhängige Institution – alleine der Geldwertstabilität und dem Wohl der Schweizer Bevölkerung verpflichtet. Garant hierfür war die Goldbindung des Franken. Geschichte lässt uns „Spuren der Vergangenheit“ erkennen und die damit verbundenen Trends beurteilen. Beispielsweise lässt sich so relativ einfach feststellen, ob sich eine Gesellschaft aufgrund der …

Friedrich August von Hayek and the denationalisation of money with Claudio Grass/

On Show 20 of the MisesUK.Org podcast, regular host Andy Duncan spoke with Claudio Grass, a Mises Ambassador for the Mises Institute and a precious metals advisor based in Switzerland, about Hayek’s ideas on the denationalisation of money. These stem from Hayek’s book on this subject first published in 1976. They focussed on the removal of the state from the production of money and the relevancy of Hayek’s ideas in this newer age of cryptocurrencies, along with the older monies of gold, silver, and other valuable commodities, possibly also becoming combined with the latest block chain technologies.


Historic Bond Bubble Means Fastest Rate Rise Ever – Martin Armstrong

“The boom cannot continue indefinitely. There are two alternatives. Either the banks continue the credit expansion without restriction and thus cause constantly mounting price increases and an ever-growing orgy of speculation – which, as in all other cases of unlimited inflation, ends in a “crack-up boom” and in a collapse of the money and credit system. Or the banks stop before this point is reached, voluntarily renounce further credit expansion, and thus bring about the crisis. The depression follows in both instances.” Ludwig von Mises

“This time it might be appear to be slightly different because not the banks in the US are expanding their credit but big amounts of capital will flow back to the USA, because of the Tax Reform…this will further pop-up the illusion of wealth for a short-time driven by inflation. More money will chase the same amount of goods, therefore prices can raise up fast, the outcome is called hyperinflation. I hope people will use this period also as an opportunity to think about time preference and to reflect on the idea that we have to safe first before we can consume. A society driven by high time preference is what we have today – swimming in an ocean of debt, corrupted by a system based on money created out of thin air. A guy said once: ““Gold is the money of kings, silver is the money of gentlemen, barter is the money of peasants – but debt is the money of slaves.” I suggest to end slavery – Putting some of the USD into physical gold and silver is a first step, building up a personal insurance against the outcome of this nightmare is a wise thing to think about.” Claudio Grass

Introduction podcast:
Is renowned financial expert Martin Armstrong worried about central banks continually buying bonds to suppress interest rates? Armstrong says, “Yes, absolutely. We are in the biggest bond bubble in history, not a stock bubble, but a bubble. . . . The scary thing in Europe is the ECB (European Central Bank) has been basically supporting the governments. It is subsidizing all the governments in the Eurozone. We are looking at almost 10 years of quantitative easing with that, and it hasn’t helped the economy. If the ECB backs off, who’s going to buy the debt?”

How does this end? Armstrong says, “Our computers are showing that interest rates are going to go up faster than anybody has ever seen in history. . . . You are looking at a doubling of interest rates very, very rapidly. . . . Gold and equities are the place to be.”
