If you do not have gold, gold has you

If you do not have gold, gold has you



The real dollar exchange rate is only 6,28 rubles per dollar

As the economic and political problems in the world grow, the idea that when Russia and China buy up all the gold in the world, the American dollar will come full and final Karachun, is gaining increasing popularity. In its favor are two current news. As Peter Hambro (chairman of the board of the Petropavlovsk metallurgical holding) told BloombergTV, in recent years, India and China have been buying up all the real gold on the London Metal Exchange (LME). This is also confirmed by A-Mark, one of the world's largest wholesale dealers in precious metals. Plus, a number of countries have announced plans to return the national gold reserves to their own vaults. In particular, the Netherlands reported this in August: the kingdom intends to transport more than 120 tons to the country, or about 20% of its gold reserves. In general, as follows from the published statistics of the US Federal Reserve, over the past year and a half, the central banks of other countries have already taken 246 tons of ingots belonging to them from the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.

Nevertheless, it must be admitted that the idea of ​​destroying the American dollar through buying gold — with all its visual attractiveness — is in fact quite far from the real situation.

About the connection between gold and tradition


Formally, everything is correct. There are two gold markets at the same time in the world today: physical and paper. Moreover, the second in terms of real weight in tons is more than ten times higher than the first in terms of trading volume. If there are no problems at the auction of various kinds of “gold-backed stock instruments” (for example, derivatives) with supply, then real gold on the trading floors in the world is offered in total 2450 tons per year. Of these, only 10% is converted into bank bars, that is, investment assets, the rest is spent on jewelry and industrial needs, including electronic. It is not surprising that 2450 tons are sold out quickly throughout the entire planet every year, especially in light of the many signs that the ideal financial storm is approaching.

Another question is that this process is indirectly related to the prospect of a dollar falling. More precisely, everything is exactly the opposite. It is not gold that is being bought up to derail the dollar, and fears that in the near future, the dollar crisis will force everyone to look for ways to preserve their capital.

In this sense, there are not so many options available on the planet: for example, real estate, weaponbut the main thing is gold. It has been a recognized value for at least 3 for thousands of years, and there is hardly any reason to expect this tradition to break in the near future.

However, this process is in conflict with the US plans to squeeze world capital from other countries to support the growth of its economy. At least during the time that Washington will need to induce Europe to sign the TTIP agreement, gold prices should not rise, otherwise investors will rush to buy gold instead of US stocks and Treasury debt securities. It is appropriate to recall that 3 / 4 of all world paper gold trading is concentrated on the stock exchange in New York, that is, they are in the zone of direct American official and unofficial pressure. That is why there is such a paradoxical situation, when physical gold is in short supply, but the price officially fixed for it remains low. Moreover, leading players like JP Morgan Chase in their “analytics” predict its further decline.

How much is gold in money


However, the multiplication table does not matter whether you are selling or buying. The excessively aggressive attempt by the United States to bend the world to its own economic needs only exacerbated the imbalance between the size of the American economy and the degree of use of its currency. The share of US GDP does not exceed 20% of the world, while US dollars participate in 80% of all global economic calculations. As Washington loses global leadership, there is a growing fear of the inevitable crisis of the settlement system in the event of a sharp exclusion of the US currency from them. First of all, because the mutual rates of all the rest of the money on the planet to a decisive degree are formed through the dollar.

Another question is that it can not be instantly replaced with gold. The current price of gold metal is rather weakly connected with economic realities. Judge for yourself. In total, about 150,4 thousand tons have been accumulated in the gold world Of these, in the form of coins and settlement bars - 24 thousand tons, and another 30 thousand tons lie in the numbered "golden bricks" in the vaults of the central banks of the countries of the world. At the current price of 1094,9 dollars per troy ounce (31,1 grams), it turns out that a ton of gold today costs about 34 million dollars. Consequently, the total value of the entire gold reserves of the planet does not exceed 5,25 trillion dollars. At the same time, the total money supply, or the total amount of money on the planet, is 71,5 trillion dollars. Of these, by the way, 70,4 trillion belongs to the economies of the largest countries 50.

Actually, this is precisely the reason for the shortage of real gold on the trading floors of the world. If you count in money, then the available money supply is enough to purchase a quantity of gold, in 13,4, times larger than it generally exists in the world. This is if you count all the gold and do not take into account that only one fifth of it is available for investment, that is, the actual effective demand exceeds supply by 67 times.

Towards a dollar-free world


Therefore, no matter what cheating methods the United States resorts to in the gold market, they cannot completely reverse this tendency. Through influence on the pricing process and control over the “paper gold” trading, Washington still manages to keep prices low, but artificiality, which means that this situation is not forever obvious to almost all serious players, and above all to specialists of central banks of the world. That is why the process of returning gold under its control is gaining momentum every year.

Take, for example, the same Germany. On paper, it has one of the largest gold reserves. On 31 December 2012, 3391 was listed on the state balance sheet. However, there are only 1036 tons, or 31% of national gold, directly in the depositories of the Bundesbank in Frankfurt. The rest lies in the Federal Reserve Bank of New York (1536 tons, or 45%), in the Bank of England in London (450 tons, or 13%) and for some reason in the Bank of France in Paris (374 tons, or 11%). In other words, 69% German gold is located anywhere, just not in Germany, therefore it is considered German only on paper. For example, if France fights with Germany, which she does with a laudable consistency at least twice a century, the Parisians are unlikely to be so gallant to return their gold reserves to the Germans. And in peacetime, this is not an easy process: for example, from 84 tons, which the Bundesbank was going to return to the country in 2012, in reality, it turned out all 37. As for the United States, during the 20 years (from the 80 of the twentieth century), the Fed refused to allow German inspectors to store their German (!) Gold stored in their vaults.

It must be admitted that not only Germans face such problems. Austria and the Netherlands cannot return their gold from the USA. Although the process, of course, is underway, albeit with difficulty and delay, but it’s still necessary to return the stocks to the real owners. As a result, American gold reserves fell to 5950 tons, the lowest in 20 years.

Owners are in a hurry to return stocks under personal control precisely because they consider the prospect of de-dollarization of the world economy to be very, very real. In this case, everyone will need some new common denominator to determine the mutual value of national currencies, and they can only be gold. As in view of the traditional universal recognition of its value, and because it is stable and does not deteriorate over time. Moreover, if the world returns to the principles of the gold standard again, it may very well be that under various pretexts the USA will simply refuse to return the gold. And what to do, say, to Berlin? Move your Tanks to Washington or land a Marine Corps in New York? The unreality of such a scenario is obvious, because it is much calmer to prepare for changes in advance, while this can be done in a relatively peaceful way.

New gold standard


About relativity is not said a word for the sake of. The world economy today is a very complex and highly intricate mechanism of billions of direct and reverse links. So far, it is synchronized through a relatively clear system of exchange rates, besides, any country in the world can influence the value of its money, for example, through the launch of a printing press. Now imagine for a moment that the dollar is no more, and no one knows how much, say, a barrel of oil should cost in yuan or rubles. The seller, of course, wrote some number on the price tag, but ... how much will it be in British pounds or Polish zloty?

The current exchange rate of the Russian ruble to the dollar is 67,95 rubles / dollar (securities for 15.09.2015). However, if we take it through gold, then the Russian ruble (the aggregate money supply 15,8 trillion rubles, gold reserves 1246,6 tons) can have a security in 0,000079 a gram of gold. Calculated according to the same scheme, the US dollar (the aggregate money supply 12 trillion dollars, gold reserves 5950 tons) is provided 0,00049 grams of gold. Accordingly, in terms of gold reserves, the ratio of these currencies is only 6,28 rubles. per dollar, which is very different from today's exchange rates.

Similar calculations show that if Berlin introduces a new German mark tomorrow (the aggregate money supply 2,8 trillion dollars, the gold reserve 3391 ton), it will be provided with 0,0012 grams of gold. French franc - 0,0023 gram. British Pound - 0,00013. Thus, instead of 77 Russian rubles for one euro, it would be 15,19 rubles. for German mark or 29,11 rub. for french franc. And instead of 104 rub. for the British pound would give only 1,64 rubles.

It is easy to understand how serious a crisis will arise during the transition period, when the dollar mechanisms will no longer work, and the new gold standard will be only at the start. Here the question is not even in particular particulars like the threat to our import substitution or the scale of oil and gas revenues. Complete, which means painful restructuring will affect absolutely all the economies of the world. Today, the euro against the dollar is 1,12, while under the gold standard, the dollar can be worth the German mark 0,4 or the French franc 0,21. Not to mention the fact that, instead of a common currency, national ones will probably be reintroduced within a single Europe, and then trade between the same France and Germany will take the mark for the franc 1,91.

This will radically change the structure of the entire world economy. For example, it is easy to imagine what will happen to the standard of living in the UK, if it suddenly turns out that European goods will have to be bought not for 1,41 euro per British pound, but, say, for 13,46 pound for one euro. Welcome to the club of the poorest countries in the world!

* * *

The scale of future changes is such that today they can hardly be presented at all, and even more nobody can describe them in tables and graphs. All governments are most afraid of the unknown, and therefore with all their strength they postpone the onset of the crisis, even to the detriment of the interests of their own country. It is clear that the British economy, on 50% dependent on the provision of services, in this case will go bankrupt, and its super-expensive real estate, today often serving as an excellent pledge in financial transactions, to put it mildly, will slow down in price. There is no doubt also the inevitable food crisis in Europe. The profitability of Russian export goods, by the way, will also undergo significant changes not for the better.

Although it should be recognized that any large-scale changes in large complex systems lead not only to losses. The Chinese concept of crisis is designated by a combination of two characters, meaning danger and chance. So the chances in the new conditions to build a more adequate and more efficient economy is for everyone. Another question is that at this stage they are practically not calculated in any way for the future. Therefore, all the leading players prefer to simply stock up with gold, so to speak, just in case. From time immemorial, gold has allowed us to experience global crises of any scale, and traditions because traditions are time tested. When the Khan comes to the dollar, gold is better to have than vice versa.

          The last Levy pants are sewn in America in the 1944 year. World War II is a turning point in American life from the accumulation of wealth through the production of goods to the accumulation of wealth through the production of money and control over money. The path may be good. But suicidal. Because it leads to what we see today. To the big dollar bubble. Yes, America is holding back inflation and rising prices by exporting printed dollars. But the world is not rubber. Where to take them further? Martians? laughing And when the Big American Dollar Copper Basin comes - who is farthest from the dollar and from American securities - he will suffer the least.

          Among the developed countries of the world, the USA has practically no competitors in its industrial development. The United States overtook the Netherlands and Israel in terms of the share of services in the structure of GDP production, which, due to certain competitive advantages, specialize in services, second only to Hong Kong (the share of the services sector is 86%). However, Hong Kong is not an independent state, remaining only a special economic region of China, where the share of the service sector is less than 45%.

          The general regularity of the ongoing sectoral shifts lies in a noticeable decrease in the share of raw materials and agriculture in the economy. Among the branches of the material sphere, industry remains the most important, it still provides a high level of technical development of other sectors of the economy. It is in it that today, in the first place, the latest achievements of the NTP are accumulated. The United States has one of the most highly efficient households in the world. A distinctive feature of their economy is the focus on scientific and technical progress and advanced technology. It is a leader in the field of implementing the results of scientific and technical progress in production, in exporting licenses for its discoveries, inventions and the latest developments. All this often leads to the dependence of other countries on the USA in the field of science and technology. (wikipedia)

          Comparison with the industrial production of other countries, as of 2012: [18]

          US - $ 3 239 billion
          China - $ 2 756 billion
          Japan - $ 1 359 billion
          Germany - $ 921 billion
          Brazil - $ 560 billion
          Russia - $ 539 billion
          This is their kind of economy, we must admit the best so far.

      The Bretton Woods Agreements are the rules of the game ... unfair, imposed by the United States from a position of winner in World War 2 and as the economically most powerful player, but the rules. Bad rules are better than none. Until a new world economic model ripens and new rules are formed, nothing will change; you will have to play in the old way. That is why we are in state reserves and buy treasures usa. I will not say that I am delighted with this, but in another way so far.

        Not certainly in that way. No one in the 44th considered the Americans a winner. Everything is simpler. The Americans promised: an ounce of gold costs exactly $ 35. The price is fixed. Therefore, the dollar is like gold. But using it is more convenient. For example, it can be telegraphed from America to Europe and vice versa. No need to drive ships with gold. It is safer. Everyone believed in it, and in the 71st, Americans stupidly threw all who believed them.

          And just so believed - believed that in America there is no inflation, believed that the private Fed will not print so many bucks to buy all the gold in the world for 35 bucks? Really keep the whole world for idiots? Or maybe in 44 America calmly spanked an aircraft carrier a month and possessed the most powerful industrial and military potential in the world when the rest were suffocating in a common massacre? While sitting overseas.

      Do not forget that money is only an instrument, albeit an important one.
      Some countries of the USA, Great Britain, and the EU to a lesser degree have adapted to parasitize using this tool, since they emit world currencies.
      This does not threaten us yet. Therefore, there is only one way out - to produce grain, oil, weapons and other industrial and agricultural products in sufficient quantities. The ruble should be provided not by the petrodollar, but by all property. And it is for rubles that all Russian goods should be sold both domestically and for export. To do so, and also to allow the purchase and sale of currency only to pay for goods and services abroad, to oblige those who work in the Russian Federation to keep money in Russian jurisdiction and the exchange rate will become quite stable in a flash.
      And gold ... This is just a way. The method of placing foreign exchange reserves, regardless of the US authorities.

    To the “+” author, I note that modern money is provided not so much with gold as with the volume of goods and services produced, foreign exchange reserves, etc. The G2,5 finance ministers, including our Nabiulina, are more concerned about maintaining a synchronized fall in the purchasing power of currencies. Everyone stupidly prints CASH, but they do it in a consistent, proportionate way. Sometimes, to solve economic problems, they begin to "hooligan" like China or the EU, and lower the cost of the national currency .... The policy of "our" Central Bank generally makes computers of all analysts in the world freeze.

      money is provided not so much with gold as with the volume of goods and services produced, foreign exchange reserves, etc.

      Ruble - secured currency, etc. includes proven mineral reserves, which are also a commodity and much more than that. Why then does the ruble fall against the unsecured dollar? Why does the author of the article write that in the United States the total mass is only $ 12 trillion, with a population of 319 million people, and in the Russian Federation 15,8 trillion rubles. with a population of 146 million, if the dollar is used by the whole world, and the ruble outside the country is present in small quantities.
      I mean, the dollar mass in circulation has not only no security, but nothing to do with the United States. Just pieces of paper for which the whole world is changing its products.

        Yes, drive to whatever you want - in reality, these biases to one place.





        We are told that it is impossible to expand trade, even if it is Soviet trade, without a healthy monetary economy and healthy currency, that we must first of all treat the monetary economy and our Soviet currency, which supposedly does not represent any value. So say the economists of the capitalist countries. I think that these respected economists understand in political economy no more than, say, the Archbishop of Canterbury in anti-religious propaganda. How can we say that our Soviet currency is of no value? Is it not a fact that we built Magnitostroy, Dneprostroy, Kuznetskstroy, Stalingrad and Kharkov Tractor Plants, Gorky and Moscow Automobile Plants, hundreds of thousands of collective farms and thousands of state farms with this currency? Do not these gentlemen think that all these enterprises are built from straw or clay, and not from real materials of a certain value? What ensures the stability of the Soviet currency, if we keep in mind, of course, an organized market, which is crucial in the country's trade, and not an unorganized market, which has only subordinate importance? Of course, not just gold reserves. The stability of the Soviet currency is primarily ensured by the enormous amount of commodity masses in the hands of the state, put into circulation at stable prices. Which of the economists can deny that such collateral, which occurs only in the USSR, is a more real guarantee of currency stability than any gold reserve? Will the economists of the capitalist countries ever realize that they are completely confused with the theory of gold reserves as the only way to ensure the stability of the currency?

    All economists of all states are cunning and always put into circulation more paper money than they have real state assets that can provide their value. This process has been going on for a long time, in Russia, for example, Peter the Great put copper money into circulation, which led to "copper revolt "of the population. Even the most illiterate peasant understood that he had been thrown. Then banks began to issue a certain prototype of paper money - bank notes - this is paper money issued in Russia since 1 and canceled in 1769, when as a result of the monetary reform in Russia it was silver monometallism was introduced. What is currently happening with banks, everyone knows: they are very far from real production and are more involved in speculation on commodity and currency exchanges. Paper money has turned into some kind of abstract virtual equivalent of labor expended, due to various circumstances not reflecting the real ratio of the value of currencies. Switch to the current provision of gold nationally currency, as was done, for example, during the NEP in the USSR, it is impossible, because this gold will be instantly bought up on unsecured and urgently printed paper money. We must look for a new universal global standard of money.

        You need to start in 1944, with the creation of the Bretton Woods system. The US made a commitment by tying the dollar to gold at a fixed rate of $ 35 / ounce. By promising that the dollar and gold "are one and the same." Only this allowed the dollar to become a world currency. "The US currency has become world money at the same time."
        https://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D0%91%D1%80%D0%B5%D1%82%D1%82%D0%BE%D0%BD-%D0%92%

        In 1971, the United States “threw” the whole world unilaterally undoing the binding of the dollar to gold. Since then, the United States has the opportunity to "milk" the planet from time to time arranging forts with the dollar. For example, in 2000, gold was worth $ 250 / ounce. Those. for 30 years, from 71 years, the dollar depreciated 7 times.
        From 2000 to 2012, the dollar depreciated another 8 times. The price of gold rose to $ 1950 / ounce. In fact, this means that trillions of dollars invested in treasury and American stocks have depreciated in the same ratio. And the United States paid in the form of interest on treasuries somewhere around 20-25%. Since 2012, the value of the dollar through gold has increased by 40%, but it still costs 4,5 times less than the price of 2000.
        Moreover, all this is unilateral, without asking anyone. That is why Americans are so enraged by the possibility of linking real assets to gold. Saddam Hussein said he refused to sell oil for dollars. Not even a year had passed since he was overthrown. Gaddafi tried to introduce pan-African gold currency - the same story.
        By the way, and without pegging currencies to gold, the prices expressed in gold are much more stable. For example, the price of oil in gold deviated as much as possible from the price of 2 grams. gold per barrel only twice in both directions for a period of more than 100 years.

    It’s interesting how the United States managed to “deceive” all of them, almost all of their partners took their gold for storage. It’s the same as securing cabbage in a goat’s garden. They also imposed their green candy wrapper on the whole World as a currency. Pay tribute to the machinistic ability of the Fed.

    An interesting article, the author is well done. Of course, you can argue about something, but in general, the argument is competent and interesting.
    A phrase
    They are not buying up gold in order to collapse the dollar, but fears in the rather short term to face the dollar crisis are forcing everyone to look for ways to preserve their capital.

    in many ways really corresponds to the real state of affairs, in the light of today's world "gestures" of major players.

    Here it is like that.
    PS Alexander, thank you, the work is serious.

    A huge plus for the author of the article, but:

    The global economy today is a very complex and very confusing mechanism of billions of direct and feedback. So far, it is synchronizing ...


    She does not synchronize anything. The global economy, in the Procrustean bed of dollar intervention. When the shortcomings of the US economy are covered by the printing press, and the surplus of greens is displayed by banks in the form of direct investments or loans to other banks. From that, among the young bankers of the world there is always a fight for relations with BoA and BoNY. That is why, all confiscated dollars are destroyed, and on the accounts are reset. These are tough rules dictated exclusively by the US administration. This dictate cannot be called synchronization, in which case chopping off fingers on a hand in volleyball competitions can also be called synchronization.

    Very helpful article. The author "+" for the effort.

    “If the dollar collapses, the entire world economy will collapse,” the owners of this currency and, in their words, partners in various blocs and coalitions are repeating to us more insistently. But really, what happens if something suddenly happens? What is everyone afraid of? Indeed, until 1947, no one was particularly tense due to the lack of dollars.
    It is clear that owners of gold stored in US vaults will receive a donut hole. The same fate awaits the holders of debt obligations of this cunning ... smart state. Gold and currency reserves of the countries of the world will lighten and become only gold ... We will remain, the entire infrastructure of the countries will remain, food supplies, natural resources, air, water will not disappear ... There will not be only a dollar.
    There will be nothing to pay to terrorists. Nothing will contain ".... kov" from PMCs bearing the right of "armed" to different parts of the world. Countries will begin to agree among themselves on the amounts of mutual deliveries of different goods, focusing on the equivalent of gold. Tourists will use valid gold cards to travel abroad.
    And it will become very difficult to make a fool of the world, using green (blue, violet, yellow, any other) pieces of paper as a means of any payment. And the IMF will cease to give out empty hopes for any kind of economic independence, because you cannot firmly stand on your feet, holding a parasite on your shoulders ... what

      Yeah .. in the meantime, countries will agree - everything will freeze.

      Aircraft hover in the sky, trains will be in the middle of the field, light will get stuck in wires, water will stop in pipes .. oil and gas, by the way, will also stop.

      Because it is incomprehensible - why supply something to someone, if it is not clear how much and, most importantly - why, they will pay you for this ..

      You can continue, but, in my opinion, it’s already quite fun wink

    Using modern information systems, you can quickly calculate the proportions of the exchange (oil for grain, water for jeans, etc.). IMHO, when pressed, a fly will agree on some sort of universal exchange unit, and everything will spin, as it was spinning. All the same, the state’s power is determined by production capabilities and the availability of raw materials, labor qualifications, etc., and not by the size of the exaggerated accounts secured by mortgages on the mortgage issued by the unemployed (2008 mortgage crisis in the USA). What, have you forgotten already? And now the American oil industry has been credited to ... for the most I can not.

    With the collapse of the buck, gold will become much more expensive and the cost of trillions of pieces of paper will be measured by the presence of a gold reserve.
    Electronics will rise in price, a cell phone or computer will have to work for years.
    In the economy, the countries that retained control over gold mining will become advanced countries.
    Instead of fusion, physicists will invent industrial plants for converting uranium into gold.

    I remember from the story. In the late 40s of the last century there was an unsuccessful attempt to abandon the gold equivalent. Then Stalin rested his horn. And now the arithmetic problem. Failed that attempt in 1948, and not in 1971, when would today's commotion begin? That's right - at the turn of the years 1991-92. Then Russia would certainly be mortally dangerous.

    To the “+” author, I note that modern money is provided not so much with gold as with the volume of goods and services produced, foreign exchange reserves, etc. The G2,5 finance ministers, including our Nabiulina, are more concerned about maintaining a synchronized fall in the purchasing power of currencies. Everyone stupidly prints CASH, but they do it in a consistent, proportionate way. Sometimes, to solve economic problems, they begin to "hooligan" like China or the EU, and lower the cost of the national currency .... The policy of "our" Central Bank generally makes computers of all analysts in the world freeze. They lowered the value of the ruble XNUMX times ... silence, "the triumph of the genius of the Ministry of Finance of the Russian Federation", "flexible politics", etc. ... The Twenty can temporarily put pressure on the cost of an ounce, but in the end it will be like in Mr. Zapolskis’s last thought.

    An impeccable sequence of errors gives the impression of a carefully thought out plan.

    the real dollar exchange rate is 0,01 kopecks per 1 US dollar. Why? How long have you bought something that says Made in USA? There's no such thing! How long have you bought at least where it says produced in USA. There's no such thing? Let's ask the Americans themselves about the same. And how much will they find their goods there?

      US exports in 2013 amounted to $ 1,58 trillion, an increase of $ 32,4 billion, or 2,1%, compared to the previous year, and reached a new historic high.

      The main commodity group of US exports is traditionally products of general and special engineering. Its share is steadily decreasing (29,4% in 2013 versus 35–40% in the mid-2000s), however, it still significantly exceeds the indicators of other product groups. For many years, vehicles (16,2% in 2013) and chemical products (15,1%) have been close to each other. Other important product groups at present are fuel (9,4% in 2013) and food (8,2%), as well as other goods (5,4%) and metal products (5%). At the same time, fuel in the structure of American exports has been ahead of food for the third year in a row, although back in 2007 it was half as much.

      The largest positions in American exports are traditionally “mechanical equipment and machinery, computers” (13,5% in 2013) and “electrical equipment, television and radio equipment” (10,5%), in the early 2010s. “fuel” approached them (9,4%). Other major articles in 2013 were “wheeled vehicles” (8,5%), “aircraft” (7,3%), “optics, devices, medical equipment” (5,3%), “precious metals and stones ”(4,6%),“ plastics ”(3,9%),“ organic compounds ”(2,9%),“ unclassified goods ”(2,8%) and“ pharmaceutical products ”(2,5% )

    The real dollar exchange rate is only 6,28 rubles per dollar

    What nonsense. Well, then make a dollar for at least ten. No, you can’t? Then there is nothing to croak. And then they try to "drag" a similar nonsense about some mythical "real" dollar exchange rate for about 20 - 25 years. Yes, only at this time the really real exchange rate of the dollar against the ruble is growing and growing.

    The author is some kind of golden fetishist. How did he decide that in modern times any currency provides or should be provided with gold? Why not aluminum or oil (then Venezuela should have the most expensive currency)? The gold standard is the last century. Once shells acted as money, let's measure them! Now gold is a common commodity, just metal, albeit expensive. For me, storing capital in aluminum, copper or rare-earth metals is much more logical. And I’ll tell you a secret that everyone knows about, not one leading world currency is backed by ANYTHING except the reputation of its issuer. This is just paper, performing the function of a measure of value, respectively, and relate to it.

    In the era of plastics and modern technology, gold was to become a thing of the past, like wheeled vehicles.
    If not bankers and if not gas dealers.
    What is the value of metallic gold today in comparison with "blue gold", "black gold"?
    Without energy, you won’t produce anything, you won’t heat a house, you won’t melt and you won’t build it. The catch is that those who don’t have enough of this do not want to be poor, and they came up with their own “paper gold” to buy real values.
