40 Comments on Basel III & Gold: The Big Picture – Mike Maloney

  1. So basically folks, the reason freemasonic banks today are making this world miserable with fractional reserve lending/money printing, is because there was a huge banking crisis in the U.S in the late 19th century.. so the banksters needed to make sure they wouldn’t be held accountable. so they created the federal reserve as their vulgar monopoly game.
    Factor into wars for profit, and the illusions of democracy-republican sovereign rights, and you have one hell of a racket.

    • Lol its like playing monopoly and sayin “ill be banker”.. we know whos not gonna lose.

    • Central banking existed before the federal reserve existed. The BIS is the world central bank founded by the Bank of England. The BIS is above the law of every sovereign nation and its board members are immune from prosecution. The board members travel under a BIS passport and bypass customs when crossing borders on official business. True world domination and power.

  2. I doubt the price will jump much after April. These things tend to be priced-in months in advance by the smart money. It might account for the recent pump we saw up to 1300. I agree with Mike that it certainly signals something big coming down the pike in the long run. They didnt just decide to do a complete 180 on gold for no reason.

  3. 5:50 My question is, which country will be next on that list? China? Or there will be multiple countries in a form of a basket?

    • Facts… lets create paper housing futures and paper land futures. Wonder what the price of housing and land would be…

    • The only analysis I need to know …. The further amount of time to acquire MORE Ag , Au. , and Pb. !

  4. Trade wars did not cause the great depression, the use of paper currency and excess debt causes the distortion of assets and liabilities where liabilities greatly exceeds assets and you get great losses because the assets are few and finite . Just like the game musical chairs when everybody wants to sit on one chair then most will lose. The people are the liabilities and the chair represents true assets such as gold and silver and platinum and paladium and copper .

  5. Thank you Mike, I appreciate you taking a few minutes to update us. I think it is good business.

    I don’t want to wait for BASEL 4. It is like they take decades to say, oh yeah gold,is good, another decade later, oh yeah, by the way, gold is money now.

  6. Mr. Maloney, I believe that you are The Best as a educator and are also a high level thinker. I have shared your information with everyone I know. Thank You for teaching us what money really is.

  7. Thank you so much for clarifying every thing in regards to this. I have listened to a couple others, and I am not naming names, one I had to listen to twice and still didnt know any more. Now I know.
    Like I have commented, will this Basel 3 cause the price of Gold, silver to possibly rise in price and value? Perhaps, how ever, many people out there have learned the true value of pm’s now and have acted accordingly, and I have as well.
    The only thing is, if it does cause pm prices to climb, and much more than where they are now, those like me on a fixed income will find it a challenge to add more. That is my take on this, and if it is a change that is slow to happen? That price escalation? Oh I am going to buy and add to my holdings until I cant any more.

      you misunderstood me, what you said in your last comment is exactly what I meant with my comment… by “income” I do not mean worthless currency, I mean goods…

      so having farm land or something to rent you’ll ask for something that is actually worth something instead of your produce or services….i.e. other products or services

    • +Grace And Panicgood questions. If you look a Venezuela, there is a huge black market going on right now due to their crises. If you have sound money ie gold and silver you will be able to barter and trade in the black market for goods. You may consider purchasing junk silver to make it easier purchasing goods if the economy ever looked like Venezuela.

    • @+jayc.. and the bills that are associated with property in the event that it cannot be used to generate an income.

    • @+Grace And Panic : Purely my personal opinion: It is a means of retaining financial value in the event of cash losing much of its value. Some of us will simply retain it to the point of a favourable price in the future post reset. If you own small quantities (I have some in grams and above) then they technically be used to buy/ barter. That would be more the way in the immediate term during a collapse. 1g = £32 by today’s prices – so do-able.

  8. Merci pour autant d’informations économiques et historiques.
    C’est un plaisir de suivre vos vidéos
    It would be a pretty good idea to translate in french tour work. 👍

  9. In other words, it is time to stop valuing things in terms of federal reserve notes, and start valuing things in terms of gold.

  10. Several strange deaths at JPMORGAN, Technicians I’m thinking market manipulators. Interesting times.

  11. The way I am reading this, Gold only has a 0% risk weighting when held against Gold liabilities. I don’t for example think Gold can be held as an asset to offset non-Gold liabilities such as cash and bonds? Would hope to be proved wrong on this though.

    Additionally, do you know which countries are adopting Basel III, or is it just the US?

  12. Thanks for the clarification on Basel III. I have physical, precious metals, not vaulted. I hope that there will be no penalties on value for people like myself who have not deposited those metals in banks or vaults. I hope that they refer to the fact that the metals are not guaranteed against theft (for example) or not existing (i.e. paper money, where the metal never actually existed to back it). I have retained all my paperwork from purchase from the mint and my bars are sealed in original packaging. I live in the UK, and in general the majority of people around me have no idea of what catastrophic events could occur down the line. In the US, I probably would be described as a ‘prepper’ in terms of being able to cope in the short term, but I fall well short of those who prepare for months. My gut feeling is, that it is in the banks’ interests to raise and raise the value of gold, as their reserves will simultaneously rise in value – thereby getting them out of trouble. Italy is interesting here, vast deposit of gold, yet ‘on its uppers’ in EU terms. PS I have no knowledge of economics, this is just my conjecture. Will watch the other video on vaulting!
