Rick Rule continues:

“The sense that you have in Europe is that the European political union and the European economic union are faced with some real dislocations.  That isn’t to say that it necessarily won’t survive, but certainly from the point of view of the private wealth in Europe, the money managers for those families are quite concerned.

The thing that appears to be first and foremost on the European family’s minds makes perfect sense....

“It’s the dichotomy between the Southern periphery of Europe and the Northern economies, particularly Germany, which are being asked to carry the freight....

The idea that the German taxpayer should shoulder the burden, for societies that have lived substantially beyond their means, really doesn’t carry any water.  But if Germany decides not to play the game, the consequences for everybody, including the Germans, are fairly high.

There was an understanding with the private wealth, that I spoke with, that almost every aspect of the bailout is false.  In the first instance, it isn’t a bailout of the taxpayers, but rather a bailout of the banks, which have gorged themselves on periphery debt.

In the second instance, in reality, the bailouts have been a mechanism to continue to fund the insolvent governments.  Meaning, on paper the money goes to the banks, but in reality the banks turn around and use that money to buy the paper of the insolvent governments. 

This paper is then marked to ‘myth’ as opposed to ‘market.’  This is insane and everybody recognizes it’s insane.  What I am saying is that the big money in Europe is scared, and quite frankly, they have good reason to be concerned.

I think the reality here is that we are going to go through an extended period of time that is going to be very, very hard.  There are large issues that are hanging over the markets right now, as an example demand destruction in the West.

There is also the ongoing manipulation of financial markets, particularly in the Western nations.  I’m speaking in this instance about the manipulation of bank balance sheets and sovereign debt.  This means we have the very real possibility of experiencing a psychotic break in the markets, such as we experienced in 2008.

But in the midst of all of this chaos, I continue to believe that given the choice between gold as a store of wealth and a medium of exchange vs the euro or the dollar, I am still attracted to gold.

I’ve always been more given to fundamental analysis, rather than technical analysis.  Because of that, I actually feel better now than I did three months ago about the gold I have my portfolio, relative to the other ways I could hold my liquid wealth.  This is particularly true in the dangerous environment we face going forward.”
