Gold reserve of the country as an airbag


In early childhood, we were told a fairy tale about a small wooden scum who went through interesting and dangerous adventures in order to make his father, friends and many other people happy.


A little later, we watched the film adaptation of this fairy tale and realized that for the sake of freedom from the tyrant Karabas-Barabas’s power, one should not be afraid of dangers, one should sacrifice the last gold ones, sometimes one should sacrifice freedom.

When we read this tale to our children, it came to understand that gold in the hands of a naive, poorly understanding child’s life is an evil that dooms him to danger, to intrigues from bad people.

And only now, reading the same story to grandchildren, you begin to understand the truth that the author laid down in this children's book. Yes, the possession of gold is a great danger to man. But at the same time, in order to become happy and make others happy, a golden key is needed.

Gold as an indicator of real state independence


After the collapse of the USSR, enough countries appeared that abandoned the previous political course and changed their vector of development. They abandoned the idea of ​​building a social state and returned to building a capitalist society.

Moreover, there is a certain pattern in the actions of many new states. The new governments first of all took care of preserving the gold reserves of their country.

Further events occur in one of two scenarios. The first is simple: holding reserves in gold is not profitable, since in this case wealth does not generate income. You need to sell gold and buy to buy stocks or bonds of another state. Best of all, the United States as the richest and most reliable state.

Simply put, gold is sold in the United States, and in exchange for real gold, countries receive US debt. In fact, small states finance the economy of the United States or other countries if the obligations of other states are bought for gold.

The second option is a little more complicated: we transfer our gold reserves for storage in the United States or another country, since we cannot ensure the security of gold on our territory. Gold is exported to other countries and completely lose control over it.

It is clear that custodians of other people's gold from Fort Knox (or West Point) will, upon request, write you a beautiful report on the status of your stock. But try to demand to show your gold. Alas, it will not work out for the safety of your own gold. One cannot see where it is located specifically.

In general, if you think a little, a very unpleasant question for Americans arises. Is all the gold there? Do the "guards" use other people's good? Moreover, do the Americans themselves know how much gold is really in their vaults? Are not gold bars of lead stored in place of gold bars? By the way, the question is quite relevant. There have been no revisions in American vaults for more than 60 years!

And one more fact related to the gold reserves of the state. Those who transferred gold for storage or turned it into securities of Western corporations make up the lion's share of those countries that, in terms of foreign policy, strictly follow directions from Washington. Economic dependence leads to political dependence. Simply put, by transferring its own gold to other countries in any form, a country transfers part of its sovereignty to these countries.

Dollar vs Gold


For quite some time, world currencies were tightly tied to gold. Those readers who found the times of the USSR remember the inscription on Soviet banknotes: "Bank tickets are provided with gold, precious metals and other assets of the State Bank." Two lines that provided a fairly stable rate of money.

But the attachment to gold prevented financiers from making money out of money. It was necessary to introduce another system. Simply put, abolish the interdependence of money and precious metals. This is exactly what the world financial bigwigs did in 1971 at the Jamaican Conference.

Within a few years, the old (Bretton Woods) currency system was abolished and a new - Jamaican - introduced. The gold standard and gold parities were officially abolished. Gold is recognized as a common commodity. A system of special drawing rights and the concept of reserve currencies have been introduced. The reserve currencies are the American dollar, Japanese yen, pound sterling, Swiss franc, French franc and German mark (Germany).

In practice, it looked like a dollar win. There was an opportunity, raising and lowering the exchange rate, to earn huge money. But gold has survived. It remained in storage. And it remained real wealth.

Therefore, starting from 1976-1978, the main task of financiers was to artificially keep the price of gold at a low level. It was not possible to get away from the gold addiction. Any crisis showed the vulnerability of the dollar. In other words, when the dollar falls, the price of gold rises, with the strengthening of the dollar, the price of gold decreases.

This task was carried out simply. All the same pieces of paper. Gold began to be traded not in kind, but on paper, without moving real metal. And the paper will endure. Gold, which often simply does not exist in reality, seems to be in stock, and its owner is constantly changing. Thus, you can increase the amount of "paper gold" to any size.

The global economic crisis is necessary


We are used to talking about public debt as an integral part of the financial activities of the state. Any government takes money in various forms both domestically and abroad. But few people thought about this problem on a more global scale. We prefer to consider government loan obligations only in the context of a particular country.

And if you look at the planet? For 2019, the total loan commitments of all countries of the world amounted to 247 trillion dollars! To understand the scale of universal debt, it suffices to say that this amount is three times higher than global GDP. To repay such a debt is almost impossible.

Let's look at the richest country in the world, in the USA. Today, public debt there is 23 trillion. dollars! This is almost 3 trillion. dollars more than GDP. Can the Americans give it away? Not. Even servicing such a debt requires huge amounts of money.

And now, in the light of the above, we will try to predict the further development of the global financial system. The global economy is filled with virtually unsecured dollars. Debt obligations of countries are unbearable for their economy. The country - the “printing press" is buying up world wealth for nothing with all its might. What's next?

Debt must be paid. And here a problem arises. Will developed countries be able to pay their own debts? Are there among the presidents and prime ministers “suicides” who will go to a sharp deterioration in the life of the people? Who wants to experiment with revolutions in their own countries? There is only one way out. It is necessary to sharply reduce the dollar.

Thus, relying on reserve gold, you can turn a dollar debt into zilch. Depreciate it as much as possible. Yes, it will cause a global financial crisis. Many states whose gold and foreign currency reserves are stored in loan obligations, or in dollars, will die. But the monsters who own the gold will remain.

Cruel? Maybe yes. Only moral principles, humanity and other "chimeras" in the world have not been welcomed for many centuries.

Golden airbag


What I wrote above has been known for a long time. If you carefully look at the movement of gold on world trading floors, an interesting fact will become visible. Since 2010, the world's leading central banks have stopped selling gold. Only operations for the purchase of real gold are conducted. For ten years, precious metals are most often bought.

It was in 2010 that the Basel III protocol began to be drawn up by the World Bank for International Settlements. This revolutionary decision was finalized on March 29 last year. The essence of the protocol is simple. Under the Jamaican system, gold belonged to the third category of gold reserves. Simply put, it was possible to evaluate it only at 50% of the real value.

Last year, gold began to belong to the gold reserves of the first category. Its value has grown to 100%. Simply put, a reassessment of the balance has occurred. Just as an example: almost 3 trillion can be invested in the Russian economy. legal dollars. Legitimate in terms of VBMR.

On some results of the work of the Russian government


Today, many countries are buying gold. The leader in terms of procurement is Russia. We buy more than 40% of gold. If you look at last year’s purchases, the numbers look impressive: 274 tons.

I specifically asked about the subject of gold reserves of the USSR. Amazing fact: the largest gold reserves were under Stalin. In 1941! 2800 tons of gold. The USSR never had more of this.

Today, our reserves have not yet caught up with the Stalinist ones. A little more than 2207 tons (in the middle of last year). To understand the volume of work of the government of the Russian Federation in this direction, it is enough to recall one more figure. In 2000, after the successful democratic reforms of Yeltsin, Russia's gold reserve was as much as ... 80 tons.

But with all the success in this area, we do not yet occupy a leading position in gold reserves. At the middle of last year: the USA - 8133,5 tons, Germany - 3367,9 tons (only the majority is stored in the USA), Italy - 2451,8 tons, France - 2436 tons. There is room to grow ...

            When they shoot with lead bullets and shots, the barrel is leaded. I heard the story of one local historian that trunks from ancient flintlocks were found in the Perm province, whose trunks were covered with silver inside, which indicates that they shot shot and bullets from silver. Apparently at one time this metal in a certain area was more than lead, and its value to local residents was insignificant.

      "Not gold, as everyone claims, but good soldiers are the spring of war, for you won’t always find good soldiers for gold, and good soldiers will always get gold."
      Niccolo Machiavelli about gold and soldiers.

      The increase in gold reserves has allowed our country to significantly increase its reserves, strengthening its financial position, making considerable profits from it and taking another step towards the gradual de-dollarization of reserves and world trade. Central banks of various countries have been building up gold reserves in recent years. Russia is also taking this path. Gold is now the safest investment, since the US authorities cannot influence it with its sanctions. But it still has value. It is valuable in itself, which cannot be said about the dollar or the euro. Therefore, there is nothing surprising in the fact that the demand for physical gold is increasing. In general, it turns out that the Bank of Russia has made the right bet on gold.

        But! stop The Central Bank in those countries where the "euro" and "dollars" keep the refinancing rate in the range of 1, 25 - 2, 5%. And the “local banks” issue loans at 3-5%. However, as well as foreign banking daughters of Russian. In Russia, the Central Bank offers a rate of 6,25%, and banks offer loans at 10 percent or more.
        The Russian Central Bank, which is “Russian” only in name, even if gold flows instead of water in the Moscow River or finds “Siberian Eldorado” somewhere in Siberia, we will live as we live now, perhaps worse, only because because neither the gold reserve nor the NWF work for the interests of the country. This is an imperious stash. When they want, then they will take advantage of it. Or it’s “fading” as quickly and famously as the “gold of the CPSU” was pocketed in its time, about the existence, quantity and routes of which he knew (and apparently wanted or could want to share this secret with society ???) window Nikolay Kruchin ...

      In World War I, gold served as collateral for the purchase of military equipment in the amount of 300 and 150 million pounds, respectively.
      .Bolsheviks for gold bought grain and food, steam locomotives and equipment for the Red Army.
      In the Second World War, gold was a guarantee and payment of loans under the lend-lease.

      The economy does not work without finance, finance is a universal means of exchange, distribution and redistribution of income from economic activities, etc. An alternative to the financial system in the economy is subsistence farming. But then you have to forget about a highly developed, high-tech economy. The economy will collapse, at best, to the level of the early Middle Ages.

      Stupidity is complete. If the authorities want people to lose, they will lose, in any case, even gold even in banknotes. Chubais and Gaidar deliberately deprived the people of money so that they could not prevent the privatization.

    I have no doubt that organizations such as the IMF will benefit from the global crisis. Yes, and big capital will not remain in the loser. In 2008, the role of gold was minimal. During the global crisis, no country would dare throw gold on the market. If there are many sellers, it will simply fall in price.

          Come on, I'll tell you.
          Two-thirds of Russia's gold reserves are in the main depository of the Central Bank in Moscow, the remaining third - in its other divisions throughout Russia. The Central Bank does not buy gold directly from gold miners, but from banks such as Sberbank, VTB, Otkritie Bank, Gazprombank. These banks receive gold from industrialists on account of previously issued loans, and, having received it, smelted it into bars at special plants, then they offer it to the Central Bank, which buys everything offered.
          However, the listed banks, having a license for gold and foreign exchange operations, do not always sell all their bullions to the Central Bank. For example, Sberbank trades gold through its own divisions in Zurich, London, New York. These are the so-called Sberbank goods centers. This bank and others that have a license, on behalf of the Central Bank, can buy bullion abroad. The purchased gold is transported by them to Russia and delivered to the Central Bank vaults.
          In addition to natural gold, bullion is also made from scrap gold, and this is not such a small part.

      The Russian Central Bank holds gold reserves in the country in its vaults with a multilevel security system. Gold is stored in coins and bullion with a purity of at least 995 samples weighing from 10 to 14 kg. The price of one ten-kilogram ingot is almost ₽30 million.

      Most of the reserve is supposedly located in the main storage in Moscow on 6 Pravdy Street, not far from Belorussky Train Station. The rest is in the vaults of the units of the Central Bank in other cities of the country.

      The Central Bank of Russia is the property of the Federal Government of the Russian Federation. Thus, he submits to one person, the President of the Russian Federation. He is not subordinate to the Government, the Ministry of Finance, the Federation Council, the State Duma .... The Central Bank has 3 governors, 3 deputies, 3 representatives from the Ministry of Finance and 3 people from Inabiulina, and she herself. Insurance is not bad.

And the President can then remove the Central Bank through the Duma, but solely on the grounds specified in the law such as a criminal offense. For example, there is no loss of confidence there.

Are not gold bars of lead stored in place of gold bars? By the way, the question is quite relevant. There have been no revisions in American vaults for more than 60 years!"- still thinks, everything is ok. Let us recall the story with Germany. Gugel to help.
    "Economic dependence leads to political dependence."- a banality. But not a fact in absolute terms. See, for example, Belarus. There are many additional nuances.
    "Bank tickets are secured by gold, precious metals and other assets of the State Bank. ” Two lines that provided a fairly stable rate of money."- where did this promise come from?!?!?! Stability was ensured by commodity relations (external and internal) and balance. The inscription on the note is a historical formality. Let us recall the ruble exchange rate ... Real and“ chooooory. ”By the way, if memory serves , Article 88 of the Criminal Code of the USSR? ... Correct ....
    "... to cancel the interdependence of money and precious metals ..."- so, but not quite. As long as the drag.met was traded (both officially in stores as jewelry, and unofficially in the form of coins and ingots on the chior market), the cost of a gram is actually always indicated and / or taken into account (and still is) when formation of the selling price. And this value was not formed from the air. That is, in other words, the linking of the cost of a gram of drag, meta to the den.unit (to the ruble, tugrik, yen, kauri shell) was still there. Of course, taking into account retail sales markups and discounts when trading in cziorna.
    "... to cancel the interdependence of money and precious metals. That is what the world’s financial bigwigs did in 1971 ..." - and here it is debatable !!!! with all due respect to the Author: see, please, years: 1946, 1969, 1974, 1979. Why these years? Google in help. Hint: see, pzhlsta, den.units of Great Britain, Germany, Switzerland. There is also a popular movie about the kidalovo Swiss with the denominations of Germany. Interesting topic. Googel to the rescue.
    "Bretton Woods system"- the author did not quite understand, for it was precisely this system that until 1944 meant the binding of denominations and ZVZ, and was abolished in 1944. On paper ... But not in fact !!!!! Not all countries (like the USA itself !!!!!) they immediately abolished such a link. Nah ... There is physical evidence of this. Indisputable, reinforced concrete.
    "... The reserve dollar is called the American dollar, ..."- Yes, but! ... Americans appreciated their bucks pretty much before the Bretton Wood (both after and until now). Accordingly, before and immediately after the Second World War, they were quite comfortable controlling just the bucks, which, by the way, have been very eager since the beginning of the 20th century accepted as if not a world currency, then certainly at the expense of a universally recognized means of payment. There are many reasons for this, information is the sea. It is quite accessible.
    "The global economy is filled with virtually unsecured dollars."- everything is relative in the world. It depends on which belfry."Оmature Оgodparents Оnezhsky ОZera. "No, well, really? From macroeconomic heights - yes, maybe. And from the point of view of the opportunity to buy the same barrels of oil, business, iPhones, Fords, Cadillacs, camputers, newspapers and parades for bucks - ohhh, bucks quite he senses himself very well. Well, bucks backed up with goods !!!!! Or, in other words, tangible assets. The author is right, but there are always nuances ... And these nuances are often SUBJECTIVE, pisihalagichesky.
    By the way, I would also pay attention to such a factor as the "mobility" of "gold" (any physical precious metal). It’s not so simple there.
    Sorry for the many buffffffs.
    And finally, let me note: from my point of view, a real asset for which wars were fought long before the birth of God and to the present: EARTH! Soil ... Groot. On which you can build a fort-knox, a city, a state, a country house, a toilet, a stall, a hospital, a pub, a school .... What to do with tons of gold without a groot?

      Right. Some time ago, Merkel hinted at the return of the gold reserve from America to Germany, so a certain politician came from there and put her in her place. The question is closed until 2099. Only de Gaulle at one time managed to return the gold to France.
      But in general, Russia is saving up metal to get rid of the dollar. Unlike other countries, Stalin categorically refused to give the gold reserve of the USSR to the States, because the ruble was also provided with precious metals. But now, having put all his strength into the accumulation of a gold reserve and in connection with this, having made many sacrifices (for example, a low standard of living of the population), it is unlikely that an outcome will be achieved. The supply is insufficient.

    Well, firstly, this gold does not belong to the people, but to the new feudal lords. What is this gold for us? There will be a confusion and it will disappear like party gold in a westerly direction. Gold deposits of the country, for some strange law, now belong to a handful of some obscure comrades. The people are dying. See the statistics. Sick children are treated in Germany if they manage to raise money. If not, they die here. So there is no need for special cries that a lot of gold. It does not work for our population.
