Statistician and economist Dr. Jim Willie has a long and accurate track record of financial forecasts going back to before the 2008 Credit Crisis that changed the global financial system forever. And following the Bank of Japan's failed new policy of negative interest rates a few week's ago, and last week's failed stimulus announcement coming out of the European Central Bank (ECB), Dr. Willie reported in his latest newsletter that a new 'Lehman Event' was already underway, and the debt crisis that nearly took down the world's financial system seven years ago cannot be resolved by what central banks have done, and are doing now through zirp, nirp, and quantitative easing.
In fact, Willie's only solution to stave off the meltdown that is taking place as we watch is for a return to the gold standard, and backstopping the over $230 trillion in sovereign debts with precious metals.
A systemic Lehman event is in progress, as the global financial structure is collapsing. The only remedy is the Gold Standard installation, which is happening, but its architects are from the East. They are labeled as enemies, when the root problem is in the Western banking hive.
Following the Lehman failure, every possible wrong decision was made, in vigorous pursuit of continued fraudulent money and sustained criminal banking enterprise. To be sure, no solution or remedy or reform has been sought. What comes is a new systemic Lehman event, in a crash of the global bond, banking, and currency systems together. - Jim Willie via Silver DoctorsInterestingly, this new assessment by Dr. Willie comes just three days after the National Archives released documents tied to the 2008 financial crisis, and in them it showed that not only did the Federal Reserve not see the collapse coming, but former Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan said that the central bank was incapable for predicting any crashes despite having access to all the data, and employing hundreds of Ivy League economists.
Here is Allan Greenspan meeting with Dixie Noonan et al on March 31, 2010:
This is a reason why the Board is getting an unfair rap on this stuff. We didn’t forecast better than anyone else; we regulated banks that got in trouble like anyone else. Could we have done better? Yes, if we could forecast better. But we can’t. This is why I’m very uncomfortable with the idea of a systemic regulator, because they can’t forecast better.
This comes from the person in charge of the most powerful central bank in the world; a world which now is reliant exclusively on central bankers for its day to day pretend existence. - Zerohedge
However, several economists outside the banking system and government did forecast correctly the bursting of the housing bubble, and the subsequent credit crisis that led to the death of Bear Stearns and Lehman Brothers, and resulted in a taxpayer bailout that has now run into the tens of trillions of dollars.
Buying gold through Karatbars is one of the easiest things on the net. In fact, the business model of Karatbars is to sell gold in affordable quantities, such as 1, 2.5, and 5 gram increments, and allow customers to get into the metal without having to shell out $1200+ for a single ounce coin.
And as added perks to signing up with Karatbars, as a customer or affiliate, Karatbars is working on a new e-wallet system that functions just like an offshore bank account, and is outside the authority of the banking system. From there, you can take your fiat currency in any denomination... dollars, euros, yen, etc... and purchase physical gold which can either be delivered directly to you, or stored for free at one of Karatbar's vaults.
Additionally, any gold that you buy can easily be sold back to Karatbars, or any metals dealer, and if with Karatbars it is then exchanged for currency that is uploaded to you through a pre-loaded debit Mastercard which is connected directly to your e-wallet. And as we know, MasterCard is recognized in nearly every country around the world, and usable in any currency that accepts it.
But perhaps the best feature with Karatbars is their affiliate program, where you can earn money off commissions from getting others to sign up and become a customer or affiliate. Not only do you receive commissions from their purchasing of physical gold, but you also earn commissions from anyone who buys a commission package, with that money going directly into your debit MasterCard when you have enough units to cycle.
Imagine the ability to earn the money in which to buy your gold savings simply by purchasing a commission affiliate package one time, and then getting others to sign up and do the same thing.
How many businesses or entrepreneurs can build an infinite business with spending less than $400 of their own money? And there is never a mandatory requirement to buy beyond what you desire, on your own schedule. And there is nothing to lose, because you're using money (paper dollars) to buy gold (physical money) and in the end you don't lose a thing.
