At the same time, the fourfold increase in the value of gold, from the current $ 1,230 to $ 5,000, will cause colossal inflation and a devaluation of the dollar. Personally me, this option seems fantastic, including for the reason that Fort Knox didn’t conduct a normal audit: we can only take on word of US officials who swear by Roosevelt’s grave that gold is completely safe. What is unlikely in reality. You look with what persistence do not allow an audit of gold reserves. In addition, we know how the United States refused the representatives of Germany in verifying German gold held in custody in the United States. And also, you probably remember the scandal with tungsten shipped from the USA, disguised as gold to China in 2009. Most likely the American gold reserve is a fiction. By the way, since you and I are talking about gold, here is another fresh one. The former vice president of JP Morgan admitted that he had been manipulating the precious metals market for 7 years, and not on his own initiative, but at the instigation of government representatives. Apparently, because the United States in reality is the “Naked King” and remains influential only until someone shouts - that the king is naked, aggressive madmen in the White House want to start a nuclear apocalypse. The only salvation of mankind is a powerful weapon of Russia that can cool insane heads in Washington. What do you think about it?
