Space Oddity & Helicopter Money
Published by Egon Von Greyerz | Aug 26, 2020 | Articles 13481

Since the end of 2006, the major central banks (Fed, ECB, BOJ & PBOC) have increased their balance sheets from $5 trillion to $25.5t today. The great majority of the extra $20t created since 2006 has gone to prop up the financial system. And even with these $20t the world economy is more rudderless than it has ever been.

COVID 19 – A Hobgoblin
Published by Egon Von Greyerz | Aug 19, 2020 | Articles 14737

Is Covid the most perfect distraction that could have hit the world? The timing couldn’t have been more perfect for the European and American economies. We know that there were major problems in the financial system back in August-September 2019 when both the ECB and the Fed declared that they would do what it takes. And since then we have seen massive injections of liquidity in the form of QE and Repos.

The Nightmare Scenario for the World
Published by Egon Von Greyerz | Aug 7, 2020 | Articles 17030

Obviously governments and central banks will desperately try to introduce resets, new digital currencies, do a bit of hocus pocus with debt to pretend it has disappeared. The US might even revalue its alleged stock of 8,000 tonnes of gold. But their bluff will be called. The effects of any measure governments take will only be temporary as the world realises that it really is bankrupt.

Humpty Dumpty System Is Irreparable
Published by Egon Von Greyerz | Jul 19, 2020 | Articles 16729

What does it take to break the global financial system? Well, we obviously know what it takes since the system is already broken. Broken by debts, broken by deficits, broken by a fractured financial system, and broken by false markets as well as fake money. So just like Humpty Dumpty, the system has already had a big fall. But the world still believes that this is all a fairytale with a happy ending. No one wants to recognise that Humpty is totally broken and irreparable.

Broken World Economy Cannot Escape Scylla & Charybdis
Published by Egon Von Greyerz | Jul 10, 2020 | Articles 18672

As the world economy desperately tries to navigate to a safe harbour, is it going be pulled down by the six-headed monster Scylla or the Charybdis whirlpool (Homer’s Odyssey). It seems likely that Scylla is now starting to swallow parts the world before Charybdis will finish it off. A world severely weakened by debt and mismanagement is unlikely to have the strength of Odysseus to pass both obstacles without disastrous consequences.

What Powell And Lagarde Told The G7?
Published by Egon Von Greyerz | Jul 5, 2020 | Articles 21081

Why don’t Powell and Lagarde tell the people that central bank actions are destroying the economy and the value of the country’s money. The dollar has lost 86% in this century and the Euro 82%, measured in real money. Real money is of course gold since it represents constant purchasing power and is the only money which has survived in history.

Disconnect Between Rising Markets and the Current Economic Collapse
Published by Egon Von Greyerz | Jun 10, 2020 | Articles 2555

Egon von Greyerz and Grant Williams address global market risks, the now total disconnect between the recent price rise of risk assets and the current collapse in economic and social signals. They obviously also cover the role of gold as a historically consistent solution to both inevitable market volatility and the declining purchasing power of fiat currencies around the globe.

US Gold Confiscation Would be Folly
Published by Egon Von Greyerz | May 28, 2020 | Articles 47311

Will gold be confiscated? Yes, of course, it could be. Desperate governments will take desperate actions. And as the world economy is now slumping into a hyperinflationary depression, unlimited money printing will cause currencies to collapse, leading to a surge in the gold price measured in worthless paper money.
