Commodity-Backed Currencies To Challenge Dollar Yen & Euro?

The war in Ukraine may be a more destabilizing event than many realize.

According to GoldMoney’s head of Research Alasdair Macleod, it may be accelerating the evolution of a new monetary system comprised of commodity-backed currencies.

Alasdair predicts such a regime will favor countries like Russia and China, and threaten to fully expose the worsening problem of purchasing power devaluation that afflicts the current major world fiat currencies – like the dollar, yen & Euro.

Could such a momentous transition really be underway?

And if so, what will the implications be?

For a discussion that goes deep into the details, watch this fascinating new interview with Alasdair Macleod.

Is The Ukraine War Actually An Energy Heist?

Last week, an opinion piece written by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Brett Stephen ran in The New York Times titled “What If Putin Didn’t Miscalculate?”

It posited that if you look at Russia’s incursion into Ukraine as a mission to annex the country’s world-class energy resources, it looks much more like a success than the bungled regime change failure it’s frequently portrayed as in the media.

And regardless of what the primary objective was, Russia is now in control of these critical resources.

That could well be a game-changer. For the geopolitical chessboard as well as for individual investors.

How?

To find out, we talk with David Knight Legg, the energy expert whose input largely inspired The New York Times’ piece.

This is one of the most fascinating discussions I’ve had yet had on this channel. And perhaps one of the most important to understanding how the future economy will operate.

Warning: this may challenge some of the beliefs you hold about the West’s current energy policies.

Will Russia Sanctions Trigger A Worldwide Credit Crisis? | Gordon Long

The world has quickly become less stable over the first 2 months of 2022.

Financial system stability, especially in the all-important bond market, was eroding at a concerning pace prior to last week, but Russia’s recent invasion of Ukraine is serving as an accelerant to the situation.

The severe economic sanctions being applied against Russia, including banning it from the SWIFT international payments platform, are near-certain to create painful consequences for ALL parties involved.

To give us an understanding of

the key risks to monitor, we welcome market analyst Gordon Long to the program. Gordon has issued several recent warnings about the credit markets in his latest investor letters and I’m eager to hear him explain why.
