Why are Russia and China Buying Gold? Tons of it!

William Engdhal, Daniel McAdams and Michael Oliver are returning guests on the radio program this week.

America’s ruling elite, who are bent on destroying the sovereignty of nations including that of the U.S., have denounced gold ownership. Meantime, China and Russia who fight to protect their sovereignty, encourage citizens to swap currency for gold, an asset-based money. China not only imports massive amounts of gold far greater than they admit but it is now the number one gold producer in the world. Russia is the world’s second largest gold producer and it is selling its oil to China, not for dollars but for gold!

Why are these two nations building their gold reserves while the NATO countries are getting rid of theirs? William Engdhal opines on that while Daniel speaks about how America continues to display insanity by repeating failed foreign policies just as the Fed continues to repeat failed monetary policies. Michael reveals the latest momentum readings for gold, silver, stocks and bonds.

William Engdahl is an award-winning geopolitical analyst, strategic risk consultant, author, professor and lecturer. After earning a degree in politics from Princeton University and graduate study in comparative economics at Stockholm University, he worked as an economist and investigative freelance journalist in New York and Europe.

He has been researching and writing about the world political scene for more than thirty years. His various books on geopolitics have been translated into 14 foreign languages from Chinese to French, from German to Japanese.

His most recent works trace the strategies and events that led to the rise of the US as an international superpower after 1945, a new kind of Empire not based upon sole military occupation of land, but control of vital resources (finance, the basic food chain, energy, in particular oil) as the basis for what would become the greatest concentration of power in history, after the collapse of the Soviet Union.

Daniel McAdams is Executive Director of the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity. He served as foreign affairs advisor to US Congressman Ron Paul (R-Texas) from 2001 until Dr. Paul’s retirement at the end of 2012. In the 1990s he worked as a journalist based in Budapest, Hungary, including as editorial page editor of the Budapest Sun. He also served as special rapporteur for the British Helsinki Human Rights Group while based in Europe, monitoring human rights and elections on the ground in various contentious states, including Albania during the 1996-1998 civil unrest, Montenegro, Georgia, Armenia, Belarus, Croatia, and Slovakia. He was a Phillips Foundation Journalism Fellow (1998-2000) and an American Swiss Foundation “Young Leader” (2006). He holds a BA in English from the University of California at Berkeley and completed coursework for a Master’s in international relations.

Michael Oliver entered the financial services industry in 1975 on the Futures side, joining E.F. Hutton’s International Commodity Division, NYC. He studied under David Johnson, head of Hutton’s Commodity Division and Chairman of the COMEX.

In the 1980’s Oliver began to develop his own momentum-based method of technical analysis. In 1987 Oliver, along with his futures client accounts (Oliver had trading POA) technically anticipated and captured the Crash. Oliver began to realize that his emergent momentum-structural-based tools should be further developed into a full analytic methodology.

In 1992 he was asked by the Financial VP and head of Wachovia Bank’s Trust Department to provide soft dollar research to Wachovia. Within a year Oliver shifted from brokerage to full-time technical research. MSA has provided its proprietary technical research services to financial and asset management clients continually since 1992. Oliver is the author of The New Libertarianism: Anarcho-Capitalism.
