Crack-up GOLD

Protect our gold from the beast!!

"Those who control the economy describe gold as a “dead investment”, oppose its import, and talk of putting the “gold to work”.

Significantly, the proposals of Raghuram Rajan, the government’s chief economic adviser, favor foreign bankers who seek to hoard gold to protect themselves from a major economic collapse. Raghuram Rajan was formerly with the International Monetary Fund and is currently affiliated with the secretive BDT Capital based in Chicago. He also works for the University of Chicago whose endowment fund operates like a hedge fund with a portion of its investments tied to gold.

From now on, all Keynesian stimulus policies would actually go on to worsen the imbalances rather than revive growth." More here.
