這個老頭惑亂世人未有了日!!

1958年代,

老葛是捍衛金本位主義的鬥士,

後來投效(被買通?)聯準會麾下,

讓法定通貨的美元紙鈔遍布全球;

現在退休下來又開始推崇黃金??!!

其中理由值得玩味!

 葛林斯班警告黃金的重要性

Greenspan’s Warning on Gold

n 前聯準會主席葛林斯班在國外關係委員會上發言,
建議各國中央銀行應該要多注意黃金。
他說:「法定通貨除了黃金之外,沒有其他出路。」

n 他說多年考慮金價的結果,認為黃金應該要
和其他原物料一樣,藉由實際供需來決定其價格。
他說:「如果所有通貨同漲同跌,
那要以什麼為依據?黃金就像是礦坑裡的黃鶯一樣,
有警告的作用:它能反映貨幣市場出現的問題,
因此各國央行應該要多留意黃金。」

n 他甚至在回憶錄中說他曾經在
國會委員會中倡導說:「制訂任何貨幣政策,
都應該要讓人認為法定通貨和黃金有所連動。」

n 在越戰期間,當民眾不對紙鈔有信心時,
連黃金都被軋成向香菸盒包裝紙一樣的金箔,
做為貨幣來進行買賣。

Alan Greenspan spoke at the Council on Foreign Relations earlier today, and what was his advice? That central bankers should be doing what these columns, among others, have been rattling on about, namely that they should be paying attention to gold. “Fiat money has no place to go but gold,” the former Fed chairman said at the Council, according to economist David Malpass, who quotes Mr. Greenspan in one of Mr. Malpass’ emails on the political economy. Mr. Malpass writes that the former chairman of the Federal Reserve’s board of governors was responding to a question in respect of why gold was hitting new highs.

Mr. Greenspan replied that he’d thought a lot about gold prices over the years and decided the supply and demand explanations treating gold like other commodities “simply don’t pan out,” as Mr. Malpass characterized Mr. Greenspan. “He’d concluded that gold is simply different,” Mr. Malpass wrote. At one point Mr. Greenspan spoke of how, during World War II, the Allies going into North Africa found gold was insisted on in the payment of bribes.* Said the former Fed chairman: “If all currencies are moving up or down together, the question is: relative to what? Gold is the canary in the coal mine. It signals problems with respect to currency markets. Central banks should pay attention to it.”

To which, forgive us, one can only say, “Now he tells us.” The fact is that if Mr. Greenspan governed the Fed with an eye on gold, it wasn’t a particularly steady eye. He might argue that when he left the chairmanship of the Fed, in January 2006, he left a dollar worth a 400th of an ounce of gold, slightly more valuable than the 461st of an ounce of gold that it was worth when he came in nearly 20 years before. But in the first five years of the 21st century, when he was in the last quarter of his years as chairman, the value of the dollar started its long collapse, plunging from the 282nd of an ounce of gold that it was worth on January 4, 2000. In the years since, it has cratered to record lows once imagined only by such sages as Ron Paul.

Mr. Greenspan’s remarks at the council were not the first time he gave us a glimpse of his views on gold. He discusses gold on several pages of his memoir, “The Age of Turulence,” reminding that he once told a Congressional committee that “monetary policy should make even a fiat money economy behave ‘as though anchored by gold.’” He wrote that he had “always harbored a nostalgia for the gold standard’s inherent price stability.” But he confesses that he’s “long since acquiesced in the fact that the gold standard does not readily accommodate the widely accepted current view of the appropriate functions of government — in particular the need for government to provide a social safety net.”

The American people, he asserted in his book, have for the most part “tolerated the inflation bias as an acceptable cost of the modern welfare state.” And he claimed, “There is no support for the gold standard today, and I see no likelihood of its return.” We’ll hazard a guess that the statement makes him a man more of the past than of the future. But at least some politicians are hearkening to his advice about the price of gold. They’re people like Congressman Ron Paul and his son, Rand, who may yet be a senator, and Governor Palin, who was one of the first to warn about the gold price, and Congressman Paul Ryan, who asked Mr. Greenspan’s successor, Ben Bernanke about gold.

And, by the way, a few journalists, like Glenn Beck, who are students of history and just can’t believe their eyes that the dollar has plunged to the level it has with so few people raising an alarm. We are in a period when gold is more than a canary — to cite Mr. Greenspan’s bird of choice — it’s a full-throated rooster, cock-a-doodling at the top of its lungs. It was nice to see Mr. Greenspan mark the point at the Council. Would that he’d taken more of his own advice. And nice to see Mr. Malpass mark the Greenspan comments so prominently in his letter to his economic clients. He is more for a gold price rule in monetary policy than a gold standard, but we hope he makes another run for high office at the first chance, and presses the principle for all its worth. It’s what we need in the national debate, and none too soon.

* Not just in World War II did the special role of gold come into focus. Covering the fall of free Saigon for the Wall Street Journal in April 1975, your editor witnessed a bank run in which panicked Vietnamese citizens, in the streets outside the financial institutions, bought, when they could, gold that had been pressed into sheets the size and approximate thickness of cigarette paper.

  • deflation to inflation to hyperinflation

    以下單純預測:一年之內,外資大量熱錢同時撤離新興市場及亞洲股房市(1997年亞洲金融風暴再一次)的同時,美國四月開始至八月房貸違約再一度登上高峰,歐美經濟發展停滯 ,民眾不敢消費,各國首先會有通貨緊縮的現象(貴金屬價格也將大幅下跌),而後,政府又開始造錢運動(反應)到後開始引發通貨膨脹,再到超通膨(hyperinflation)~~~這樣洗三溫暖,應該可以洗掉不少人的身家財產!

  • 操控中的貴金屬

    假設二:既然我們都知道貴金屬的價格是受國王控制的,那量呢?也是他控制的吧!到時發生價格大跌的時候會不會想買也買不到呢?趁現在還可以買的時候多少買一點吧~誰知道明天會發生甚麼?以上僅是小小假設,提出另一個思考方向~~~請各位格友包涵嘍~~~

  • 南韓外匯存底近3千億美元 刷新紀錄
    更新日期:2010/11/02 10:05

    南韓外匯存底逼近3千億美元,連續兩個月刷新紀錄。目前市場普遍認為,美元將持續走軟一段時間,根據這一趨勢,南韓外匯存底在不久的將來會超過三千億美元。


    今年以來,南韓外匯存底已經第四次刷新最高紀錄。「韓國銀行」分析,外匯存底增加的最大原因是,美國聯準會推動大規模量化寬鬆政策打壓美元,因此歐元和日元相對走強,進而產生歐元和日元資產價值增加。
