Here’s one of the charts
We know that China has significantly reduced its purchases of U.S. Treasuries. I guess we also know what they’ve been buying with their trade surplus instead. Can you say, re-allocation! This should be no surprise, as I’ve been reporting for years on the accumulation of gold by China, Russia, and other foreign central banks. What is our idiot central bank and their minion banks doing instead? They’re so concerned about having the price of gold rise, exposing the false confidence in the fiat dollar, that they’ve been naked shorting the gold and silver market to keep the prices artificially suppressed so……the Chinese and Russians can load up at bargain prices. Brilliant! Do you think the Chinese know their history, that our leaders will never address the sovereign debt crisis proactively? It will only be through a crisis that change occurs – and it looks to me like they are preparing to weather the storm.
Surely all this money printing has stimulated the economy, right? Not, U.S. Monetary Velocity Continues to Decline (along with our monetary and political leadership)
