The Money Bubble is About to Pop!


Gold expert James Turk thinks the biggest bubble of all is long past its expiration date. Turk thinks this bubble will end like all bubbles. Turk predicts, “This money bubble is going to pop. It has to because there is just too much debt in the world. That debt has to be reconciled and, ultimately, when you are reconciling debt, it gets back to the point about collateral on the balance sheets. There is just not enough good collateral to support all of this paper money circulating out there.”

Turk also says there is way too many paper promises for the actual physical gold that can be delivered. So, in the future, Turk says, “I see a lot of these promises to deliver gold being broken and, ultimately, the only way you are going to see this being resolved is with a much higher gold price.” How high? Turk estimates, “You’ve got to be looking back to the all-time highs of $1,900 or $2,000 per ounce. We are eventually going to take those out. It’s just a question of when we do it. It’s obvious it is going to happen because gold has been money for 5,000 years and, ultimately, people will come back to gold when they realize that all these promises of bankers and central bankers really cannot be fulfilled. So, it is just a question of when that reconciliation comes. In March of 1968, the dam broke and the gold price was released and the gold price climbed for another 12 years. When the gold price finally gets released this time around, it’s going to climb for many, many more years. It’s hard to say how high it can go, but relative to the amount of paper that’s out there . . . a price several times higher than what we have today seems very, very reasonable in the long run.”

Paper Assets Will Evaporate in 2016 Leaving Gold & Silver Standing


Precious metals expert James Turk says that things may get so bad that not losing will be winning. Turk explains, “In the environment that we are in, if we come out on the other side of the valley in terms of our wealth as when we went into this period, we are going to be doing very, very well. I would expect a lot of wealth destruction. At the end of the day, the houses are still going to be there. The farmland is still going to be there. The timberland is still going to be there. The oil wells are still going to be there. The bars of gold and silver are still going to be there. It’s the paper assets that are going to evaporate, and I think paper currency power is going to evaporate along with those paper assets.”
