Are we back on a gold standard? (E1342)
In this episode of the Keiser Report from Mexico, Max and Stacy discuss central banks on a gold buying spree and what that suggests is in our global monetary and trade policy future. The volume of gold buying has not been seen since 1967 when the world was, in fact, on a gold standard. Does this indicate we are, indeed, back on a quasi-gold standard if USD trade surplus is being converted into hard money, regardless of formal agreements to that effect? In the second half, Max talks to Bill Barhydt of Abra about their new product which will essentially create a bitcoin standard for the world by turning BTC into a unit of account.
