De-dollarization has been a constant theme over the last decade. Countless countries have increased their gold holdings while slowly reducing dependence on the U.S. dollar. U.S. hegemony has subsided over the last few decades and will continue to degrade as the U.S.’ exorbitant privilege is now an Achilles heel. For decades, U.S. dollars have been held around the world as part of countries’ financial reserves. The problem is that they’re tired of having their hands tied by the USD and are finding alternatives.

De-dollarization Via Gold

How many news stories have you heard about the U.S. invading or bombing another country? Why are the majority of the targets gold-loving nations? Do you think it’s a coincidence that they are part of the gold axis? Iran, Venezuela, Russia, and China all love gold. Many articles are out there stating how Russia and Venezuela settle trade in gold. Maduro has gold and oil, but the U.S. is there trying to take him out. We are also all tired of hearing about Russiagate and how Putin got Trump elected. All over the news you hear that China is the reason why the stock market is having difficulty, and any logical person knows that’s a lie. Slowing fundamentals and garbage government numbers are the reasons why things are not as good as they seem.

Gold Trade Note??

The day the U.S. debt market collapses is fast approaching. The global bond market is a house of cards, and the central banks know it.  An interesting discussion took place in Malaysia recently. Trade deficits around the world have unleashed a firestorm of political discussion, especially amongst Asia. For many years, there have been rumors floated out that a gold trade note would be the most ideal form of currency to settle trade. Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad of Malaysia recently called for a single currency in the East Asian region backed by gold. This currency would not be a national currency, but one that settles trade.

“We can make settlements using that currency. That currency must relate to the local currency as to the exchange rate, and that is something that can be related to the performance of that country. That way we know how much we owe and how much we have to pay in the special currency of Asia.”

Remember the last several leaders who proposed such measures? They were silenced. Dr. Mohamad’s view of the U.S. is much like many other nations.

“You [the U.S.] are not democratic. That is not for any single power to decide. If you want to live in a united world, a stable world, we must resort to sustainability through agreement between all nations that have a stake in that problem.”

Philippines Reserves

In the Philippines, a new law was passed to revamp the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas gold reserves. Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas only buys 20,000 to 30,000 troy ounces of gold per year, but this new law could push this metric to 1 million ounces. The enaction of this law allows the central bank to buy gold from small-scale miners at market prices. Literature in the bill exempts the miners from paying taxes on gold sales to Bangko Sentral. The reason this bill passed is because miners would go to the black market to sell gold for cheaper prices since the transaction was not taxed. The bill now incentivizes miner sales to the bank, who wishes to increase gold purchases, which have fallen some 99% since 2010. Is this all just for some pile of rocks?
