“Gold Is Money, Everything Else Is Credit” – JP Morgan
This is a series of editorials I wrote back in 2012 under a pen name on a website called www.GoldenMarkets.com. I was running it secretly at the time as I wasn’t allowed to publish things without approval from the lawyers at the bank I work for back then (fair dinkum I guess). I mostly wrote the pieces on my iPad on the one-hour-flights I did almost every day at the time.
The main idea was to start using whatever unit-of-account you prefer, and I chose gold. Markets and currencies were evaluated against gold on a weekly basis. The website was for example appeared on the “ZeroHedge.com Reads” and several of the pieces were published over at SafeHaven.com. The site was discontinued due to external circumstances and I lost a number of texts.
There still is a few good ones in there though. Enyoy!
