Gerald Celente continues:

“I have gold for my ‘golden years.’  So, let me go back to 1978 when I bought my first 100 ounces of gold at $187.50 an ounce.  These are very different times between then and now.  There was no eurozone, in terms of a monetary union.

In other words, that whole gold market in the 1980s was US-centric.  There were no runs on the banks in Greece as there are today.  There was no depression in Spain and runs on the banks in the eurozone as there are today.

It’s a totally different game....

“There was no $16 trillion worth of debt in the United States as there is today.  There was no such thing as QE1, QE2, or the ECB dumping 1.4 trillion euros into the system in these long-term refinancing operations, with bank-borrowed money.

It’s a totally different game.  There was no explosion of the eurozone.  There was no Great Recession/Depression.  It was only a blip in time back then.  This is a very different scenario.

You look at what’s going on in China, all of their numbers are way off, from exports to imports.  You look at their housing market, it’s virtually in free-fall.  You look at commodity prices diving across the board.  Why?  Because there’s a complete slowdown taking place.

Look at the latest filings for unemployment, much higher than they had anticipated, as were the jobs created last month.  There’s no recovery.  The only thing they (central planners) are going to do is to continue to print more digital money.

Look what’s happened to the euro.  It was recently trading as low as 1.26 against the dollar.  The dollar is moving up.  Great, they just torpedoed the Lusitania, but here comes the Titanic, jump on board.  That’s what the dollar is.

So I’m in gold long-term.  This is a totally different scenario than it was before (in the 70s).  (What we have seen) is a lot of hedge funds, financiers and speculators which have made bad bets in other fields (assets), are pulling out of gold to cover those bets.  And it is in the best interest of the central banks, worldwide, to keep suppressing the price of gold because of the banks runs.

If I lived in Greece and I had two nickels to rub together, they wouldn’t be in a bank.  All of the smart money is leaving Greece.  It’s moving out of Spain, Portugal, it’s moving out of these countries.  So, to me, the ‘Golden Days’ are just ahead.”
