Excellent Interview on Gold for 2014

This interview from a Switzerland perspective on gold/precious metals with Egon von Greyerz. Click here. About 25 minutes.

One important thing he states is that what he thought would happen (collapse of the dollar and its impact on global fiat money system/precious metal investments) is taking longer than he thought. He didn’t think that people would take the huge amount of printed money from all central banks, not just the US, as actual money. gg agrees, she certainly wouldn’t. But not everyone invests as gg would. Short-term profits rule at the moment, no question about it.

And the very important thing he says : “People should prepare themselves to the best of their ability and then just continue to enjoy life.” Excellent advice. Very good interview.

  • European, and particularly Switzerland, perspective.
  • This person advises very wealthy people, probably mostly Europeans, so he mentions things like art, diamonds, etc. So, not everything will apply to the Main Street investor.
  • This person has been in the business/economics for a very long time. When he talks about the fall of the dollar (especially vs the Swiss Franc), it is on a 50-year time line.
