If Gold Is Not Money, Why Do Clearinghouses and Former Fed Chairs Say It Is?

Collateral is an underlying asset that is pledged when a party enters into a financial arrangement. Even Alan Greenspan, the man most responsible for the 2008 financial crisis, has admitted that “gold is money.” He couldn’t admit this until he’d left the Fed. But this is a man who knows all too well just how the financial system works.

Gold really does matter in “polite company”!

Why are we bombarded daily with negative psyops regarding gold & for the last couple of years, has gold price suppression been so openly blatant & fierce?

Gold is (Once Again) Money

Things I Learned About Life While Day Trading Millions of Dollars

Day trading is the best job in the world on the days you make money.

The U.S. Dollar: Currency Masquerading as Money

A critical attribute of money is that it be a store of value. The U.S. dollar has lost value at an increasing rate since 1971, losing 75% of its value from 1914 to 1971 and 96% from 1971 to 2014. Such a precipitous decline in the U.S. dollar’s purchasing power disqualifies it as real money.

Gold And Silver Are Money: The Truest Form Of Money

Let us be clear about one thing & to never forget: gold and silver are money – the truest form of money.

Owning Gold as a Hedge Against Paper Currency

A major reason why gold so often looks good is that the alternatives so often look so bad. Money, by definition, observation and experience, has no intrinsic value.

Bitcoin versus Gold: Currency versus Money
