Now that iTulip is officially defunct, I thought I'd resurrect MEGA's (Malcolm) thread over there and transplant it here. Apologies in advance to @Patrick.

"RECORD HIGH GOLD PRICE. The World Gold Council reports that during 12-2023 the LBMA afternoon gold price averaged US$1,976 per ounce, a record high. According to the CME Group “Central banks bought a staggering $70 billion of gold, the most since 1950.

Looks to me like central banks are planning for a monetary change, and regardless of how things go, they want to keep their position. If CBDC's go bust, having physical gold in their vaults will keep them in control. Assuming they can hold those vaults when the mob comes...

The vaults are empty. They aren't stupid. The gold was pilfered decades ago.

If you read any of the above links, that information is no longer accurate, likely for the reason I stated.

The people trying to run the world keep buying gold...

iShares Silver Trust peaked around $47 in 2011. Now it is around $20. Silver and gold are Rigged Rigged. The central bankers do not want to see it becoming a threat to other asset classes like real property and stocks. They already are putting a squeeze on major crypto like bitcoin, etc.

Look at Amazon. Its at $127. Only about 20% above its February 2020 levels, yet overall inflation since then has been about 25%

S&P 500 only up 26% since February 2020 so it has a real return of nearly 0% since then :-/

So Powell and the Fed have cooled down stocks, ETFs, crypto, silver and gold . Dollar Index (DXY) is still relatively strong.

Not sure where you pulled that number from but nobody is selling gold for that price. Remember the market is highly manipulated, and you will never be able to buy for spot until the old economy is dead and buried.

You are better off putting your money in the S&P 500

Graph the yearly average of the S&P in terms of the average price of gold from 1900 to now.

Silver Eagles and coins sell for about 10% to 15% above spot price for silver.

So spot silver around $20 then Silver Eagles (1 ounce) sell for around $22 to $23 generally.

I rather own 1 ounce silver coins and 1/10 ounce gold coins. Easier to use as far as liquidity then trying to use a 1 ounce gold coin, in case the dollar collapses.

However if the dollar collapses, I am not sure silver and gold will be valued as people will only want to trade in food, water, medical supplies, shelter, gasoline, and bullets.

And Tobacco! @patrick, this video reminded me of your grow operation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O2vObnwMWho

He doesn't use it himself apparently but grows it because he can barter with it if SHTF.
143   Patrick   2023 Sep 30, 12:23pm  

Pretty sure it's illegal to use tobacco for barter, but then if SHTF the ATF is not going to be in business either.

The Germans used cigarettes as currency for a few years after WWII, because reichsmarks became worthless.

I already have all that stuff, so I'll take it for sure. I'm past survival, already thinking about how to thrive in the new economy.

When the dollar collapses, it’s almost certain it is because the government collapsed. I don’t see a scenario where we create Weimar Republic style hyperventilation. Most of our debt is owed to Americans not foreigners. There is no reason to hyperinflate, so the concern is basically ludicrous. Now on the other hand it does seem we are on the brink of government collapse due to years of corruption, lies and weakness.

Just what are you guys smoking. This is the strongest economy in the world. Do you think europe or China is doing better than us?


China is doing better than the United States, even Russia is.

What does the US produce? If an alien species sucked up this entire nation and threw it into the sun, what would the world lose? What does the US make the world needs? War? What? Need a better iPhone or something? Another useless update to Windows which is now a subscription service?

I don't know why Americans think the United States is even useful in the world.

The metrics for a "good economy" that the US defines, the United States defines, is GDP, which is just monetary churn. If a drone plane cost a billion dollars to make and sell, that's better than an ENTIRELY EQUIVALENT drone made in China for $100.

GDP is just another form of propaganda. It's not an actual measurement.

I’d give you some credibility Richwicks if you would immigrate to China or Russia.


I might immigrate to Russia. The language is hard, but it's doable. Mandarin, that's very difficult. There's barriers to leaving.

CCCP_trollbot says

But no, you pay your taxes here and complain about how horrible the US is.


If I move to another nation I give up my ability to try to change the nation, since I moved to it. Don't you realize this?

CCCP_trollbot says

If it were so bad in the US you would have left, but no, you will stay here until your last breath (and bitch and complain).


Oh no, it's bad in the US certainly. I'm just tired of people thinking it can't be improved and settle for a senile old fuck with a crackhead son using his own kid to accept bribes, and you thinking this is the "best nation in the world". HAHAHA. You'll defend whatever these mother fuckers do, sell your kids and grandkids into slavery and thinking "we're the leader of the free world".

Ugh, the propaganda techniques of the USSR and NAZI Germany, it's hilarious it works on you so easily. You aren't human. I have held onto the idea that you could be educated, you're only useful to be exploited. I completely understand the contempt of a career criminal like Biden to take advantage of you. I understand their disgust.

“I might immigrate to Russia.”

Dude, you are sooo full of shite. There is no fucking way in hell you do that. I am willing to bet on it. How much?


My cousin abandoned this country for Argentina, another for Canada although she didn't realize she was jumping from the pan into the fire. My grandfather abandoned Poland.

I kind of want to stay here to see this place burn. I'm in Silicon Valley, I'm starting to see the shit show now, been going on for months. 5 hotels have been built within walking distance from me, they are all empty.

I know people that have abandoned the United States for UKRAINE. I hope he's alive, seriously, I've not heard from him in years. I warned him the US overthrew that country and was trying to provoke a war with Russia - he thought I was crazy. What can you do?

I regard this country as reformable still, perhaps that's my delusion.



"We're the leaders of the free world", right? Who else in the entire world has such a scumbag as a kid? Apple doesn't fall that far from the tree after all. HAHA.

I just have to laugh as Americans take it up the ass, and choke down the cock. We obviously didn't elect this asshole. We have 24/7 propaganda, that maybe 40% of the population believes. It really is hilarious, IF you can appreciate clown world. I go in and out of it. It's funny, and then it's despair. What I can see, anybody can see, but only a minority bother to see it.

@CCCP_trollbot The rule here is that you cannot personally insult the other users.

Please stick to the point, and leave the person alone.

If you don't like someone, just don't engage, or better yet, put him on ignore.

I think you are incorrect here. I don't see where he's personally insulted me. I think you've made an error.

That's definitely a personal insult, not about anything but the person.

Yeah from what I've read such as on Statista about 22% of total US federal debt is owned by foreigners.

Its all about debt service and solvency. How much can it be sustained in regards to tax receipts and expenditures, or cash flow.

If debt service is problematic then I think they'll raises taxes. They also may cut back on Social Security payments for those in the upper tax brackets.

Very true as RFK stated this when he was running for President. GDP is just one way to examine debt such as debt to GDP ratio. A better way is debt payment as a percentage of total federal budget.

Also GDP is helpful as far as tracking defense spending:
https://www.statista.com/statistics/217581/outlays-for-defense-and-forecast-in-the-us-as-a-percentage-of-the-gdp/

But I like to examine quality of life or standard of living metrics as far as measuring the socieoeconomic progress. Percentage that own a home, percentage that are college educated, average life span, household debt versus annual income, household savings rate, median household savings, crime rate, number of libraries and museums, etc

166   NuttBoxer   2023 Nov 8, 6:11am  

That would be an anathema to the institution of central banking. More likely their hedging their bets if the digital slave currency doesn't take right away, as another means to force it's adoption. Back it with gold, then pull the rug out. Also possible they're so arrogant they think that will help them weather the storm of a collapse. It won't...
167   NuttBoxer   2023 Nov 8, 6:13am  

Still buying, highest purchase rate is in Q3 of this year. Regardless of their reasons, one more indicator the economy is headed for a bad place:
