Hike Gold Price To Get Inflation When All Else Fails

Raising the price of gold is the easiest way to get inflation. A higher dollar price for gold is practically the definition of inflation. Governments can do this in a heartbeat.

China would push for broader use of the yuan at the AIIB and the Silk Road Fund, as part of efforts to promote the yuan as an international currency.

Gold-Backed Currency? Not Any Time Soon, But Be Prepared

How can there be a gold-backed currency? While all eyes are focused on some kind of gold-backed currency emerging to replace the failing petrodollar and skyrocket gold and silver prices, all should be aware of the current world reserve currency and how all of these war-induced skirmishes are to maintain and protect it.
