Economic Collapse 'Big Event' Skyrocketing Gold, Silver, Oil Commodity Prices As Dollar Value Falls
April 6, 2011
Related: Ron Paul to Announce Presidential Bid Next MonthSkyrocketing gold, silver, oil and other commodity prices, a brazen attempt by the Federal Reserve to monetize a staggering and deleterious debt, a precipitously falling dollar, creeping inflation – these are elements of a “big event,” Ron Paul told Alex Jones on Tuesday.
“It’s huge, and it has started,” Paul said, and it may be identified as such within 30 days. “I believe it is the beginning… you and others have been talking about commodity prices going up.” The Texas Congressman noted that even the former boss of the Federal Reserve, Alan Greenspan, has warned about out of control inflation.
“A necessary condition for long-term unemployment is low inflation,” Greenspan said recently. “If the Fed does its job and stabilizes the inflation rate, that’s the maximum that the central bank can do.”
Greenspan failed to mention the fact that when the Federal Reserve prints a new fresh new batch of fiat paper money, it unleashes a devastating round of inflation. Quantitative Easing initiated by the Fed is just that – cranking up the printing machines. It created $600 billion out of thin air to purchase Treasuries and another nearly $300 billion for mortgage-backed securities. Pumping all that money into the economy is an engine for creating inflation.
It won’t end with QE2, though. The plan to print gobs of money is open-ended. Late last year, the Fed said it will “regularly review the pace of its securities purchases and the overall size of the asset-purchase program in the light of incoming information and will adjust the program as needed.”
As Lew Rockwell noted with tongue firmly planted in cheek, it makes sense to refer to it as QE[n], because the Fed has hinted it will soon begin QE3.
“These various attempts to restore the inebriated happy time have unpredictable and uncontrollable effects,” said Rockwell in mid-March. “Bernanke would drive us right into hyperinflation to save his industries. Savers living on pensions just don’t have the political clout to stop the money machine,” he added.
“Inflation is when they print the money and create the credit out of thin air,” Paul told Jones and his audience, “and then the price increases come afterwards.”
Both gold and silver reached stellar new highs today based on fears that the central bank’s monetary policies will lead to an increase in interest rates in response to galloping inflation. Both China and the EU ratcheted up their interest rates modestly this week.
Paul noted that the record-breaking rise in the price of gold is a barometer pointing to the fact that the dollar continues to decrease in value. Gold, he said, is the ultimate test to determine the state of the dollar. “Devaluation, it’s not good for anybody.”
In addition to base metals, the price of other commodities – particularly oil and food – have shot through the stratosphere and give no indication of coming back down to earth anytime soon.
An op-ed posted on the NASDAQ website calls current Fed boss Bernanke a myopic Dr. Frankenstein who created the inflation monster now ravaging the world economy. “Frankenstein had his monster and Ben has his and his monster is commodity price inflation,” writes Phil Flynn. “Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke might not see what is coming,” that is to say interest rate increases from China and Europe and inflation on gasoline and food prices.
As Alex Jones noted during the interview, warnings about inflation are coming from all quarters, most recently from Wal-Mart CEO Bill Simon, who said there will be “serious” inflation in the months ahead for clothing, food and other products.
In October of 2008, as Congress was poised to bail out the bankers, Ron Paul criticized his colleagues for misunderstanding the real causes of the financial crisis and reacting in a way that ultimately deepened and prolonged the inevitable slide into depression. “The financial bubble created by the excessive credit and the lowering of the interest rates is the cause of the recession,” Paul explained. “The recession and/or depression will come, my sincere conviction is that by doing more mischief and not allowing markets to adjust, debt to liquidate, you’re going to guarantee a depression.”
“The solution to inflation is not having a Federal Reserve run by somebody like Bernanke,” Paul said as he concluded his interview with Alex Jones.
Paul is currently the chairman of the House Subcommittee on Domestic Monetary Policy and is in a position to rake Bernanke over the coals in the months ahead as the bankster created Frankenstein monster of inflation ravages the nation.
