Will Gold Save China When Its Credit System Crashes?

Ian Klassen appears as a guest for the first time while Dan Oliver and Michael Oliver return.

China is expanding its monetary system even faster than the Fed and other western central banks. But China has been amassing huge amounts of physical gold while the West continues in its disdain and blissful ignorance regarding the nature of money. A systemic collapse of China’s monetary system is not in question. The question is when will it take place? And when it does, will a new more viable system gold-backed monetary system emerge that is used by China, Russia and other New Silk Road trading partners? What might that mean for the dollar-denominated gold price and for the gold mining shares? Those and more questions will be addressed by Dan.

Ian talks about GMV Minerals and the progress it is making in outlining a sizable gold deposit in Mexico that investors appear to be oblivious to and Michael, as always, provides his valuable updates on the gold and other key markets.
