It's not just"tinfoil blogs"who(for the past 11 years)have been warning that a monetary reset is inevitable and the only viable fallback option once trust and faith in fiat is lost,is a gold standard(something which even Mark Carney hinted at recently):central banks are joining the doom parade now too.
An article published by the De Nederlandsche Bank(DNB),or Dutch Central Bank,has shocked many with its claim that"if the system collapses,the gold stock can serve as a basis to build it up again.Gold bolsters confidence in the stability of the central bank's balance sheet and creates a sense of security."
While gloomy predictions of a monetary reset are hardly new,they have traditionally been relegated to the fringe of mainstream financial thought-after all,as Mario Draghi stated on several occasions in recent years,the mere contemplation of a"doomsday scenario"is enough to create the self-fulfilling prophecy which materializes it.As such,it is stunning to see a mainstream financial institution open up about the superior value of limited supply,non-fiat,sound money assets.It is also hypocritical given the diametrically opposed Keynesian practices regularly engaged in by central banks and official institutions worldwide:after all,just a few months back,the IMF published a paper bashing Germany's adoption of the gold standard in the 1870s as the catalyst for instability in the global monetary system.
虽然关于货币政策重新调整的悲观预测并不是什么新鲜事，但它们传统上一直处于主流金融思想的边缘——毕竟，正如 Mario Draghi 近年来在多个场合所说的那样，仅仅是对"世界末日情景"的思考就足以创建一个实现它的自我应验预言货币基金组织。因此，看到一家主流金融机构公开谈论有限供应、非法定、稳健货币资产的优越价值，令人震惊。毕竟，就在几个月前，国际货币基金组织发表了一篇论文，抨击德国在19世纪70年代采用金本位作为全球货币体系不稳定的催化剂。
Fast forward to today,when the Dutch Central Bank is admitting not only did gold not destabilize the monetary system,but it will be its only savior when everything crashes.
The article,titled"DNB's Gold Stock"states:
"A bar of gold retains its value,even in times of crisis.This makes it the opposite of"shares,bonds and other securities"all of which have inherent risk and prices can go down.
According to the IMF's latest data,the DNB holds 615 tons(15,000 bars)of gold mainly in Amsterdam,with other stores in the U.K.and North America;the value of this gold reserve is over€6 billion($6.62 billion).Calling gold the"trust anchor,"the article details briefly why the hard asset is so important to wealth building and the global economy,claiming:"Gold is...the trust anchor for the financial system.If the whole system collapses,the gold stock provides a collateral to start over.Gold gives confidence in the power of the central bank's balance sheet."
Why this sudden admission of what goldbugs have been saying for years?Perhaps it has to do with the fact that on October 7,the bank announced it would soon be moving a large part of its gold reserves to"the new DNB Cash Center at military premises in Zeist."
为什么突然承认金虫们说了多年的话？也许这与10月7日该行宣布将很快将其大部分黄金储备转移到"位于泽伊斯特军事基地的新 DNB 现金中心"有关
Almost as if the Netherlands is preparing for the grand reset,and is moving its most valuable asset to a"military"installation just for that purpose.
As bitcoin.com tongue-in-cheek points out,"DNB is no stranger to playing along with the Keynesian,inflationary games of the global monetary system.A system which,according to some,is now more a Ponzi scheme based on force and blind faith than sound economic principle.That notwithstanding,the centralized financial powers of the world know the real score,and that's why hard assets like gold are hoarded and locked down while everyday,individual residents of these geopolitical jurisdictions are encouraged to spend and spend,going further into debt to prop up ultimately unsound national economies."
It is hardly a coincidence that in its preparation for monetary doomsday,the Dutsch Central Bank is also set to begin cracking down on crypto exchanges and wallets,stating that"firms offering services for the exchange between cryptos and regular money,and crypto wallet providers must register with De Nederlandsche Bank."
While the push for greater KYC/AML transparency is a growing global trend,and is hardly surprising in a world in which trillions in assets reside in"tax-evading"offshore jurisdiction,the remarkable aspect of this latest crackdown against crypto-which many see as a modern,more efficient form of"gold"-is the fact that invasive regulations and restrictions by central banks can be seen as yet another means of stockpiling precious assets.This time,not gold bars,but bitcoin and crypto.
虽然推动加强 kyc/aml 透明度是一个日益增长的全球趋势，而且在一个有数万亿资产存放在"逃税"海外司法管辖区的世界里，这并不令人惊讶，但最近这次打击加密(许多人视之为一种现代、更有效的"黄金"形式)行动的一个显著方面是，中央银行的侵入性监管和限制，可以被视为另一种储存宝贵资产的手段。这一次，不是金条，而是比特币和密码。
As for the timing of the"great monetary reset",which other central banks have already quietly hinted at themselves amid massive repatriation of physical gold from the New York Fed to various European central banks such as Germany and Austria,we are confidentthat the trust-keepers of the current establishment-such as other central banks and the IMF-will be kind enough to provide ample advance notice to the citizens of the"developed"world to exchange their fiat into hard assets.Or,then again,perhaps not.
在纽约联邦储备银行(New York Fed)将实物黄金大规模汇回德国和奥地利等欧洲各国央行之际，其它国家的央行已经悄悄暗示了"大规模货币重置"的时机。至于这一时机，我们相信，当前各国央行——如其它央行和国际货币基金组织(IMF)——的信托管理机构——将足够仁慈，向"发达"国家的公民提供充足的预先通知，让他们将法定货币兑。或者，话又说回来，也许不是。
