Asset manager Nick Barisheff says, “There’s never been a fiat currency in history that didn’t end in hyperinflation and complete collapse.” Barisheff thinks that Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner’s most recent call to have an “unlimited debt ceiling” for the U.S. was “just telling the truth.” That’s essentially what we have now with “open-ended” money printing by the Fed. Barisheff adds, “All it’s doing is postponing a problem . . . it makes it bigger and eventually it blows up.” Forget about remedies for the economy, it’s too late. Barisheff says, “We’ve passed the point of this getting fixed.” Barisheff thinks if the Fed’s gold holdings are ever audited, there will be a “gigantic short-covering rally . . . multiple bankruptcies . . . and a massive loss of confidence” in the dollar because much of the gold is gone or leased out. Barisheff thinks the gold price could be “easily double” right now. That’s because Barisheff believes, “What’s kept the price down is the artificial leased gold going onto the markets.” Join Greg Hunter as he goes One-on-One with Nick Barisheff, CEO of the $650 million Bullion Management Group.

Fed’s New Indicator-Based Printing Policy Removes Limits
from Wealth Cycles:
We finally last week got the first official confirmation from the Federal Reserve (Fed) that its quantitative easing (currency printing) program will ramp up to a cumulative $80 billion to $85 billion per month early next year. That level of currency expansion is necessary if the Fed is to offset the $10 billion per month contraction in the total “money” supply, which has persisted despite the $40 billion currently printed monthly. In other words, the breathtaking rate at which the Fed is decreasing the purchasing power of your existing dollars will nearly double within a few short weeks.
