Gold and silver prices have climbed up to tape highs … Bitcoin has risen past $10,000 … Rural houses and acreage are selling faster than they have in decades to folks nervous to leave cities … And the stock market rallies on any brand-new federal government stimulus news.
The chief U.S. economic expert at Deutsche Bank predicts that the Federal Reserve balance sheet will reach $20 trillion. Its at roughly $7 trillion now.
Who can battle against the tidal wave of cash sloshing around in the system?
On the other hand, more than 30 million Americans are out of work … and increasing. Millions will likely be evicted in the coming months, thanks in part to the government shuttering their work environments. Politicians bicker over joblessness advantages and just how much free money they can release– most to disappear into the pockets of the biggest business with the highest-paid lobbyists.
And virtually no one recognizes just how bad its going to get.
Wall Street financiers, retirees with savings, and employees who can easily transition their work from the office to house are doing primarily OKAY … or a minimum of much better than their counterparts on the other side of our brand-new COVID-19 divide.
However a lot of Main Street company owner have actually been ravaged. Blue-collar workers are recognizing that while joblessness benefits are short-lived, the layoffs arent. And families are feeling the pressure of a pandemic that will not end amid government restrictions that move based upon politics instead of science.
America has effectively turned a health crisis into a looming financial catastrophe for the vast majority of the nation.
How will it eventually end?
We presume in violence … possibly on a scale not seen in years. The riots that weve seen in cities across the nation are only the beginning.
And the real cause behind the coming monetary crisis is one that you may not expect. As former U.S. presidential prospect Dr. Ron Paul just recently wrote in an urgent caution to the American public:
What the Federal Reserve is doing to you and your households future is possibly more deadly than the coronavirus.
As someone who spent 12 terms in Congress, I can tell you firsthand that governments love crises since when the people are fearful, they are more going to provide up flexibilities for guarantees that the federal government will look after them
Mark my words: current government interventions will NOT conserve you or your family. And the mainstream financial media is NOT going to give you the information you need to get through this.
So Im reaching out today to advise you to tune in to Porter Stansberrys upcoming broadcast about what occurs next.
This is the very first time hell address what occurs now that the federal governments dedicated nearly $8 trillion to combat the pandemic …
Hell show you what occurs to societies as money-printing draws out of control … and precisely where to put your money to come out on the best side of this crisis.
Contrary to what you might think, it has nothing to do with stocks or gold or realty.

Will the Federal Reserve Cause the Next Riots?
By Dr. Ron Paul
Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell and San Francisco Fed President Mary Daly both just recently rejected that the Federal Reserves policies produce economic inequality. Sadly for Powell, Daly, and other Fed promoters, a cursory take a look at the Feds operations reveals that the reserve bank is the leading reason for economic inequality.
The Federal Reserve manipulates the cash supply by purchasing and selling government securities.
This means that when the Fed decides to pump cash into the economy, it does so by putting it in the pockets of rich, and usually politically linked, financiers who are able to invest the new cash before the Feds actions lead to widespread inflation. Rich people also tend to be among the first to purchase the bubbles that form when the Fed distorts rate of interest, which are the cost of cash.
These investors might lose some cash when the bubble bursts, however these losses are generally exceeded by their gains, so they wind up making money from the Fed-created boom-bubble-bust cycle.
They will also not benefit as much as the rich and well-connected from government bailouts and stimulus schemes. Middle- and working-class Americans likewise suffer from a consistent disintegration of their requirement of living due to the fact that of the Feds decline of the currency.
Big-spending political leaders are also beneficiaries of the fiat money system. The Feds purchases of U.S. debt enable Congress to massively increase well-being and warfare costs without increasing taxes to politically inappropriate levels. Individuals pay for the welfare-warfare state by means of the Feds covert and regressive inflation tax.
Low rates of interest also benefit politicians by keeping the federal governments interest payments low. This is an unstated reason the Fed will keep rates of interest near zero or perhaps lower rates of interest below absolutely no.
In response to the government-caused financial collapse, the Federal Reserve increased the cash supply by about $1 trillion from mid-April to early June. On the other hand, it took the Fed all of 2019 to grow the cash supply by $921 billion. Even prior to the lockdown, the Fed was enormously intervening in the economy in a futile attempt to prevent financial crisis.
A coming crisis will likely be activated by a collapse in the dollars value and a rejection of the dollars world reserve currency status. The financial collapse will be worse than the Great Depression. This will result in extensive violence in addition to federal government crackdowns on liberties, speeding up the U.S. slide into authoritarianism. The only way to avoid this is for Congress to make extreme cuts in costs– starting with defunding the military-industrial complex– and to investigate then end the Fed.
