A new monetary standard which will see the dollar "reboot" and gold be revalued to $10,000/oz according to best-selling author and Pentagon insider Jim Rickards.

A monetary 'reboot' is not unprecedented

Articles about an imminent return to the gold standard are not exactly infrequent in the gold world and it can be easy to become immune to them and dismiss them without considering the facts and case being made.

Many of the articles are not just based one ever-wishful daydreams. Much of it comes from information that is true about today and is then applied to situations that we have seen in the past.

Rickards makes this point himself. A monetary reset is not unheard of. Since the Genoa Accord in 1922 there have been a further eight reboots. The most recent was in 2016 in what Rickards refers to as the Shanghai Accord which purportedly saw deals done that would allow China to ease without leading to a sharp correction in the US stock market.

Rickards isn't the only one who is speculating that there could be some big monetary changes on the horizon. In March intelligence service Stratfor wrote:

Trump may consider unilateral or, failing that, multilateral currency interventions to bring it back down...Negotiating a new coordinated monetary intervention

Stratfor's analysis was considering the threat of a strong dollar on Trump's plans to reduce the trade deficit. We have recently discussed the danger of political deadlock and uncertainty on the US Dollar and how this will benefit gold.

Rickards' comments come from a similar viewpoint in that there is decreasing faith in the US dollar. This lack of trust is mainly driven by the more than $100 trillion debt ($20 trillion national debt and another $100 trillion in off 'balance sheet' liabilities) in the country and the ongoing dedollarisation by major economies.

Should Trump continue to stumble, disappoint and provoke then we will no doubt see this issue snowball even faster.

No longer banking on debt

The Federal Reserve — America’s central bank — has lowered interest rates and printed nearly 4 trillion new dollars out of thin air since the economic crisis in 2008.

That’s equivalent to nearly one quarter the size of the entire U.S. economy.

The number one consequence of all of this money printing so far hasn’t been inflation at all…

It’s been debt.

Total U.S. debt — across all private sectors — has risen to nearly $60 TRILLION…

That’s over three times as big as the entire U.S. economy.

If you add the federal debt to that number, you get $80 trillion! That’s more than four times the size of the U.S. economy.

In fact, the Government Accountability Office just reported this year that the U.S. is at risk of “fiscal failure.”

And Harvard Economics Professor Kenneth Rogoff says, “There’s no question that the most significant vulnerability… is the soaring government debt. It’s very likely that will trigger the next crisis as governments have been stretched so wide.”

And Investor’s Business Daily reports that: “Current total debt, at roughly 105% of GDP, is already in the danger zone — and based on historical economic studies, this is where nasty things can happen.”

All of this is the result of too much debt… too many Obama policies… and too much meddling by the Federal Reserve.

But what happens when there is too much debt? The dollar is still relatively strong so does it matter? Yes, says Rickards, 'many countries are relentlessly abandoning the dollar.' 

Too much debt to make America Great Again

Countries aren’t sticking around to figure out whether the U.S. can really pay back its debt or wait to see if their dollar reserves are going to keep losing their value…

Like billionaire investor Warren Buffett said

“People are right to fear paper money… it’s only going to be worth less and less over time…”

And he’s right. The U.S. dollar has lost 96% of its value since the Federal Reserve was created in 1913. Meanwhile the national debt has skyrocketed!

The dollar and debt are two sides of the same coin:

Source: Jim Rickards via Agora

That’s why many countries are relentlessly abandoning the dollar.

Typically most foreign governments invest their surplus or savings in U.S. financial assets.

Global trade is typically conducted in U.S. dollars, too.

The dollar is what’s called the “world’s reserve currency.”

As one Forbes columnist put it, “ There is a global currency. It’s called the ‘U.S. dollar.’”

But all of that is about to change if the dollar is not rebooted.

The dollar is getting dumped around the globe because of our debt, spending and money printing.

The total amount of “de-dollarization” is at least: $1.14 TRILLION…

But it’s not just the “de-dollarization” of the world that’s making this so urgent. You see, countries have not only stopped buying U.S. Treasuries… but they're selling them at a record clip.

Bloomberg reports, “ America’s Biggest Creditors Dump Treasuries in Warning to Trump .”

The Economist says, “As America’s economic supremacy fades, the primacy of the dollar looks unsustainable.”

Trump to call global summit and take control

Rickards believes that the situation of dedollarization will get so bad that the US President will be forced to call a summit of world leaders and monetary authorities.

Using his stature as leader of the free world, he’ll bring the financial leaders of the globe together.

This would include delegates from the U.S., China, Japan, Germany, Italy, France, the UK and the International Monetary Fund.

Then, they’ll agree to simultaneously revalue all of their currencies against gold until the price reached $10,000 per ounce.

Will Trump really call a global summit? Who knows. His own team probably won't know until he tweets about it.

But you should consider one element that Rickards mentions. Aside from a new monetary order, Trump is about to become the most powerful US president when it comes to looking after the US Dollar.

You see, there are seven total seats on the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve. That’s the group that makes our central bank’s decisions.

The president appoints each governor.

That means Trump could be able to appoint five governors in the coming months, including a chair and two vice chairs.

Trump will have six out of seven board seats in Republican hands.

In effect, Trump will own the Fed!

The Republicans will also have the White House…

And a majority in the House of Representatives and Senate…

Conservatives will soon be a majority on the Supreme Court, too.

And there are more Republican state legislatures and governors in the state mansions than at any time since Civil War reconstruction.

This means President Trump could have zero resistance to changing the debt-dollar system we have.

Whether Trump 'owning' the Fed means he would seek to upend the international monetary order is one thing. But, even if he doesn't do that, investors would be wise to consider what impact a Trump-controlled Federal Reserve would have on the world.

Why $10,000 per ounce?

It’s the gold price Donald Trump will need to use to “reboot” the U.S. dollar and the world’s international monetary system.

This isn’t a far-fetched concept, by the way…

Since the world financial crisis in 2008, many of the world’s governments have been buying physical gold in record amounts.

In fact, according to a recent report by the Official Monetary and Financial Institutions Forum (OMFIF), world central banks have been buying gold at a rate of 385 tons per year since the 2008 crisis.

Those are levels last seen when the world was on the gold standard pre-1971.

Why are they buying so much gold?

Because they know gold is going to be money again…

And the more gold they own, the more leverage they'll have when Trump calls the world’s financial powers together to reform the monetary system at his Mar-a-Lago resort.

As with chat surrounding soon-to-be gold standard, calls for $10,000/oz gold (or more) are also not uncommon in precious metal spheres. Since I began in the gold industry I have been reading about the imminent rise of the gold price to $30,000 even $40,000.

In truth, I believe such outlandish predictions are damaging for the long-term reputation of the gold and silver investment community. Regardless of where you think the gold price and gold standard could head to, it is all relative to your own situation, your own portfolio and the currencies you buy it in.

At the same time, while gold at $10,000 per ounce seems outlandish now, it is not impossible and indeed the scale of the levels of debt in the U.S. and internationally make it quite possible. When gold was trading at $250/oz in 2002, a rise of more than seven times and gold at $1,900 seemed outlandish to most.

Whether or not you believe Trump will ever achieve a new gold standard in a currency reset, it is vital to consider the point that central banks have been net buyers of gold for some time. A lesson for all investors.

And the most important nugget to takeaway from pieces such as this is that governments are in a completely unsustainable, debt-laden position. The current state of the global economy is unprecedented. We are also in unknown times when it comes to technology, cyber threats and nuclear sabre rattling. Governments buying gold is sensible portfolio diversification.

Buying gold coins and bars a prudent way to hedge coming currency devaluations

Rickards, Stratfor and even us here at GoldCore cannot predict what will happen in terms of the gold price. What we do know is that gold has played a very important role throughout history - especially as a hedge against currency devaluation.

Currency devaluations are coming and currencies are set to fall in value against gold as they have done throughout history. The only question is how much fiat currencies will fall versus gold and silver.

History has taught us that governments rarely know what they are doing when it comes to financial and monetary planning. It has also taught us that when times are tough countries turn on one another and war becomes common. Trade wars lead to currency wars lead to real wars. We are seeing that today.

Investors and savers are wise to think small. They should consider their own form of gold standard and how they can protect themselves. Buying gold bars, gold eagles and silver eagles including monster boxes is a prudent way to hedge the real risk of global currency debasement today.

Yeah right. Riktards also said the dollar would collapse in September 2016.

galant's picture

Yeah. Right. And with gold at USD10,000/oz, what will a macburger cost?

So if gold miners/refiners are producing at say $800-900 per ounce, what happens to their stock?

Good Lord... Rickards is taking pages from Jim Willie's playbook and sounding like every other hack metal "analyst" on alt-right websites. What happened there, Jim? You develop an expensive coke addiction or a sudden need to keep yourself hip deep in bikini party girls? 

Or you could take a risk on an asset that has been producing real 3 and 4 digit precentage increases three out of the last four years. But no, you know your readership's demographics. Go ahead and line them up to get kicked in the nuts again.

Gold has always been in vogue. It's been international money for 5,000 years, just choose your paper currency that you want to exchange it into, better still it's even the best currency to barter with. They'll get rid of cash, just watch.

Duc888's picture



This was "planned" way before Trump got into office.  Word is China won't agree unless Gold is north of 6K an ounce.

Clock Crasher's picture

Prediction- Rickards sells 5 additional best sellers over the next ten years BEFORE Gold comes close to 10,000.

Why would the dollar collapse?  G4 Balance sheets are all equal at 4 Trillion USD.  So where is this dollar collapse.

If it comes from an external source that source gets sterilized by siege and war waged with depleted nuclear ammunition.

If Gold closes in the 1,300 or 1,400 for 2017 and GSR closes with a sixty-handle I will declare major victory.

You can go fuck yourself with 10,000 Gold.. what would that do to the banks that have stockpiles of naked short contracts?

Full Retard.

The whole premise is goofy.

The markets are basically working.  The dollar is already down 15% this year vs. the Euro.  So why would Trump "reboot" the dollar even if wanted too?

OK.  Gold bugs and bitcoin/crypto zealots please hear me out, then throw me out of course, with or without expletives, I care not.

1) Gold is not money, unless minted as coinage with a stamped, somewhat fiat face value, which enables the customary exchange of "stuff".  However gold has never been much use as a means of exchange, a currency and legal tender, because it is too valuable (scarcity and amount of "congealed labour"), cumbersome (heavy), too small in spendable units (e.g. less than 1/10th ounce) and too easlily lost or stolen.  Back in the 19th Century when gold coins were in circulation, a gold sovereign = about a month's wages (give or take), so no one in their right mind would want a basically unspendable, easily lost coin ... let alone anything larger.  In any case silver and copper (also only just commodities unless coined) comprised common currency, with paper coming in later and even more convenient.  In any case, no matter what, it was all tangible.

2) Bitcoin is not money, period.  It and other cryptos have all the hallmarks(sic) of previous Ponzi/pyramid schemes, such as dot com and, in fact, the entire present Financialist, ethereal (dis)order of things.  I am not jealous of early takers who might have made a U$D fortune, but I do feel sorry for late suckers.  It'all intangible, ethereal.

3) Leaving all that aside for now.  Say both gold and bitcoin go to U$D10,000, but also lets assume that Jim Willie and many others are correct that the U$D/petrodollar will go to zero/cease being the international reserve currency. What will be the value of gold and bitcoin?  Jim Willie, and others, assume that there might be a domestic dollar - which drastically devalues - but even though gold might be an eventual store of wealth, for all practical purposes it will be worth zero ... always practically was for everyday transactions.  As for bitcoins ... well, for instance, good luck when oil imports fail, along with the petrodollar, and power stations shut down for extended periods.  Oh and I saw what happened to just one local supermarket when it lost power for over a month and it took about 3-4 days to instal large diesel generators.  I think, know that millions of people do not have a clue where even milk comes from, never mind something as highly complex as electricity supplies.  I bet that most bitcoin zealots do not have much of a clue, any more than do checkout chicks who cant do mental arithemetic these days.

Silver Savior's picture

But explain how I bought two 10 ounce Royal Canadian Mint silver bars from a well known online bullion dealer with Bitcoin that is supposedly not money. 

Now normally I don't defend Bitcoin because I don't like it, I think the altcoins are superior but yes Bitcoin is money. Gold is also money because people trade with it world wide.

Well, it depends on how you.look at it. There is a Dutch saying which goes like this: the hand of a child is easily filled. Looking at it from a practical point of view, a child's hand will be much smaller than that of a grown-up.I am sure a grownup can handle the fysical better, and a child, well, the imaginary.

I tend to regard gold and silver to be grownup stuff. Digital can also have a good life. And no doubt, after a 100.000 years into the future, what difference at that point in time does 6000 years, make?

A child can act like a grownup. Hahaha, I still see my little on stepping into my shoes and trying to walk, Al the while exclaiming: I am daddy.

So, wrapping it all up, digital denominations can act like money. Just like currencies of every fiat fiat stripe, but it ain't the real deal. Mimicry goes a long way, nature shows.





using a certain amount in a particular digital denomination does not make it money. It is acting like money. The same way, in that using a  certain amount of the federal reserve denomination does not make it money. It

"but even though gold might be an eventual store of wealth, for all practical purposes it will be worth zero"


Hmmmmmmmmm  I'll PM you, please give me your contact info.  When it is worth "zero" please hit me up and I'd be more than glad to give ya $10 an ounce for it.  MMMMMMMMMMMMMkkkkkkkkkkaaaaaaaaayyyyyyy?

Setarcos's picture

I did say "eventual" - 6 months, 6 years, 60, who knows how long before a new stable system eventuates?  Meanwhile if/when the U$D becomes worthless, particularly for international trade, then because gold (and bitcoin) is currently priced in U$D for purchase and exchange purposes, it will be worth the SAME as U$D, zero.  Simple.  Sure you could/might barter it and haggle that one ounce = a month's worth of food, or a nice set of clothes, but the vendor has no way of telling if your gold is genuine does he.  I have read that during WW2 desperate people would hand over any amount of gold for passage out of a war zone, perhaps paying 10X actual cost of passage.  Probably many just got robbed.

Meanwhile I'll charge you U$D2,000 per ounce for gold.  Trust me.  Genuine offer and free storage, unless you can collect in person with cash in AUD, in which case I'll discount to U$D1,400.  You pay for assay if you want one.

idontcare's picture

Silver on the other hand actually has some practical uses beyond "coinage" and jewelry.  Just saying.

BTW,  Jim Willie is a blowhard whose been making up doomy problems and solutions which never come to pass for 20 years.


Setarcos's picture

Yes silver has a lot of uses, e.g. electronics and even photography still I suppose.  As for Jim Willie being a blowhard?  I don't personally think so, or less of one than many other pundits, amongst whom I'd include, to some extent or other, such as Jim Rickards, Gerald Celente and especially Max Keiser.  There's a myriad more or less parasites who, like priests of old, get a large following willing to hand cash over.  I do know one thing, I don't know of many who have ever had a real job in the real economy of manufacture, engineering, building, etc., (I have btw) though many will bewail the lack of productive jobs these days.  Then there are all the bimbos on TV talk financial shows!!

One good suggestion for those playing the crypto market would be to do the usual % profit taking and put it in this old standby of the PMs... unless you want to play this game of musical chairs through the end.

Why hold back? He's saying exchange 10% to 15% of your fake money for real money. Why wouldn't you want to hold as much gold and silver as practical? It's your money and it's not fake money, and the bank can't bail it in (never put it in a safety deposit box). You exchange your silver or gold for fake money as needed by stupid people that continue to deal in fake money.

That kind of a reset (and everything happening immediately as a result) kills 1/2 to 3/4 of this country.

Don't get me wrong:  That's exactly what the Rethuglipigs want.

This is just more goldbug bullshit playing into a government confiscation event.

Consider:  For this to work, Trump pretty much has to take out most of the military infrastructure, starting with his Defense Secretary.

EnragedUSMCExpat's picture

The only reset will be the eradication of the snowflakes, antifa cowards and their LGBT sycophants. American patriots have had it up to the gills with their bullshit, and when it blows bulldozer operators will be 100% employed. Politics will have zero impact on this event - lead, the other heavy metal, will be calling the tune.

Here in Indonesia when I see gold being snapped up by the bucketload by grandmothers there is a reason for it, an ancient reason that is as inescapable as the sun rising in the East and a stark harbinger of events to come.

By all means, ignore the warning signs as many will. Try purchasing food, antibiotics, guns, ammo with fiat paper when the lights go out. That is when the folly of your fantaasies will collide head-on with reality and it will by then be far and away to late to change course. I'll give you around 72 hours, at best.

Something is not right. So if you are that certain gold is going to 10k an ounce next year then wouldn't you just load up on gold and forget stocks all together? But no you are still recommending a puny 10% allocation in metal but gold is going up by 8x. WTF? 

Then he goes on to say you should buy more gold than silver. But there is less physical silver available for investment than gold and silver is at a steal compared to gold. Is this guy a  permanent rookie?

So I don't see TPTB opting into gold.  They may not have any.
