The Russian Gold Standard

It is becoming increasingly clear that UN Nations are realising that it is very difficult to isolate a country that is already a global power. And not just a global power in terms of the military but also in terms of the world’s dependence on its energy exports. However, Russia’s energy exports are not the only thing the West benefits from.

But then what? There aren’t any major price moves, it’s not like you see any huge crashes or major leaps to keep you on your toes, not like...

Is The Ruble Backed By Gold Now?

Over the past couple of weeks, we reviewed the U.S. government confiscation of gold by Executive Order in 1933. (see “Gold Confiscation: Will History Repeat Itself?” and “The Facts of Gold Confiscation: The Saga Continues”). One of the points was that the difference between 1933 and today is that gold is not money for banks today. This means banks are not on a gold standard. Some observers have stated that the announcement by Russia’s Central Bank on March 25 to...
