      What do you think of this? you said there were no articles about this. I really like some of what you say about the alt media. But when I found this I wanted to hear what you think.

        Tim
        Thanks for your comment. I didnt say there were no articles! I said the article claiming a gold backed Yuan was coming had NO SOURCE. The article itself about the gold backing is just made up.

        The article says up front ” China is expected” It doesnt say expected by whom- just states it as fact. Koos Janson contacted the author (as did I but got no response) who admitted there was no source for the claim that China was going to offer a gold back Yuan.
        Yet they published the story anyway.

        Luke Groman who was cited in the article dodged repeated questions from me on twitter where the story came from- ie was there a chinese official who said China was going to back the Yuan? Luke refused to answer the question and finally stated the important thing about the story was not the gold backing!

        My point is there is no source at all for the story and that a dollar bear and two gold promoters are cited in the story leads me to suspect they had a hand in “creating” the story.

          I see thank you. I do not want to take up to much of your time but what are your thoughts on the death of the Petrodollar?

          • Smaulgld

            The death of the petrodollar has been called for many years. The globaloil dynamic has changed over the years (the US itself is now a major oil exporter!)Saudi arabia will eventually go the way of South AFrica. South africa was of major geopolitical importance when it was the world’s largest gold producer and the world was on a gold standard.
            The world went off the gold standard and South Africa depleted their gold reserves. Same thing eventually will happen with Saudi Arabia

              Again, I like your site because you do not seem to have an agenda. So, many of the alt media speakers do, like Jim Rickards want to sell books Peter Schiff want to sell gold, Bix, Cliff High and other want cripto to go higher and on and on and on. However, with the AIIB and with Russia and China trading within their own currencies and the fact the the dollar as the world reserve currency tied to the Petrodollar and that throughout history fiat currency only lasts so long, we had a great run but it has to come to an end sooner or later the questions is what happens next. Like in MASH do we “change red money for blue”, and then is that new currency worth less…………….

            • Smaulgld

              I cover all these topics AIIB Petro dollar, Russia and Chinese gold etc- none of this is new to me. But yelling “Reset!” “Dollar collapse happens in 2015!” or SDR will be ushered in in January 2018 is ridiculous and simply click bait, not analysis.

            • Tim Fallon

              Obviously I am new to your site could you please put your links to your AIIB and Russia Chinese buys oil with their own currencies. I would like to watch them. For the most part I think we are on the same page. Thank you!
