What Does “A New Bretton Woods Moment” Mean?

Seismic shifts are unfolding which will significantly impact our economic future.

The International Monetary Fund recently announced their intention to fundamentally re-design the global financial structure. Specifically they called for “A New Bretton Woods Moment”. A statement like this carries major implications for all nations and investors are wondering how this restructuring will take place and what it means for international markets.

If we don’t understand the past, then we struggle to comprehend the present. In this article we will look back to the first Bretton Woods “moment” and search for clues as to how the IMF’s plans may impact the future value of gold.

The call for “A New Bretton Woods Moment” was made by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) Managing Director, Kristalina Georgieva and has far reaching implications. The vast majority of the world’s population is too young to remember the foundation of the Bretton Woods System but it is important to note that this event also created the IMF itself. With the IMF calling for a new historical economic system we are guaranteed that a seismic shift is about to take place.

The Bretton Woods System was agreed upon towards the end of World War II by 44 nations. The System got its name because the 1944 meeting was held in Bretton Woods, New Hampshire. During the three weeks of the conference the attendees agreed upon the structure of monetary policy and defined the future financial relationships between the signatory nations. This was the first time in history a negotiated monetary order was created to govern financial policies between independent states.

The Bretton Woods System created an obligation for the signatory countries to maintain their external exchange rates within 1% by tying their currencies to gold. The IMF was created to bridge any temporary imbalances in this global exchange system. In 1944 the United States controlled the majority of the world’s gold reserves and demanded that the US dollar be used as the currency of exchange between countries. This was the foundation of the US dollar as the world’s reserve currency.

It is worth noting that the economist John Maynard Keynes did not believe the world’s monetary system should be tied to a national currency and had previously proposed a supranational currency known as the Bancor to act as the unit of account for international exchange. The Soviet delegation to Bretton Woods refused to ratify the agreement, criticising the new institutions as “branches of Wall Street.” The system came into operation during 1945 after a significant number of countries had ratified the agreement.

The Bretton Woods System stipulated that international trade would be conducted in US dollars because the dollar would be based on gold. That changed in 1971 when President Nixon ended the convertibility of US dollars into gold. It is because of this historical association between the Bretton Woods System and a “gold standard” that some observers are predicting that talk of “A New Bretton Woods Moment” potentially indicates a move back to a gold standard.

The US dollar has been completely devalued over the last century through inflation. Inflation occurs when the central bank prints fiat money and issues it into the economy. As the volume of currency in circulation increases it erodes the purchasing power of all the existing currency in circulation. Inflation is effectively a hidden tax on people’s savings. This system favors the large banks and institutions who receive the new currency first because they are able to spend that money before the effects of inflation are realised by the rest of the economy.

Some observers believe that through the mechanism of inflation the purchasing power of the US dollar has been devalued by 96% since the inauguration of the private Federal Reserve Bank in 1913. This means that one US dollar today would only have the purchasing power of 4 cents back in 1913. Because the US dollar has been used as the world’s reserve currency since Bretton Woods the entire world has lost through US dollar inflation. Given that almost all the value of the US dollar has been stolen in this manner it makes sense that the world’s financial elite are calling for a new system.

The IMF is touting this “New Bretton Woods Moment” as a way to address a number of issues such as climate change, financial inequality and the economic effects of the global shutdown. It is unlikely that this announcement is fortuitously taking place in conjunction with the World Economic Forum’s call for a “Great Reset” and a global discussion of Central Bank Digital Currencies. The world’s economic elite are preparing us for massive changes and it is likely that those changes will represent the increased financial control and surveillance of our population.

It is impossible to predict how these changes will manifest and what effects they will have on our economies. What we can say is that there will be increasing centralization in our financial systems. When these changes are enacted there will be very few opportunities to opt out of these centralized systems.

Cryptocurrencies and precious metals are some of the very few asset classes that offer us freedom from the impending economic structures. When we are able to combine the value of precious metals with the utility of blockchain technology we have the best of both worlds. We may need to call on this value sooner than we think if we wish to avoid being swallowed into increasingly centralized systems.

Corruption & Collusion In International Gold Markets

Blockchain technology will bring us greater transparency and accountability.

The opaque nature of international gold markets raises questions over their integrity. With so much corruption in precious metal markets, our governments should be leading by example and implementing increased transparency. The gold holdings of nation-states belong to the people, so why are accurate audits so hard to attain? What we fear is that opacity could be facilitating corruption and collusion.

Through public blockchains, the technology now exists to easily open commodity transactions to public scrutiny. MetalStream’s MSGLD security tokens are registered on the Ethereum blockchain and available for anyone to investigate using tools such as Etherscan. We should be demanding that our elected officials implement similar systems for national assets.

Australia claims to currently own around 80 tonnes of gold which represents the public wealth of 25.5 million citizens. The Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) informs us that this gold is held in an allocated account at the London vaults of the Bank of England (BoE). This means that the BoE is the custodian of gold bars with serial numbers belonging to the RBA. The justifications given for storing Australia’s gold in London are safety and accessibility to the London Bullion Market.

Red flags appear when attempts are made to audit Australia’s public asset. There has never been a full independent audit of Australia’s gold holdings so the public is unable to verify the RBA’s claims. What is required is an audited list of gold bar serial numbers and their corresponding weights. In 2013 and 2019 the BoE allowed the RBA to conduct a partial audit of Australia’s holdings but imposed severe restrictions on how audits could be conducted. The results were not made available to the public and FOIA requests have been blocked by both the BoE and the RBA.

Over the last few years, this topic has garnered increasing public interest within Australia and professional economist John Adams has documented the situation in his excellent article on the subject. The RBA claims that it leases Australia’s gold holdings to generate a return but they have admitted that the gold never leaves the BoE vaults. Although the RBA claims that counterparties are confidential an email revealed that Australia’s gold holdings are being leased to Gold Corporation. This is an Australian company owned by the Government of Western Australia and mandated to operate the Perth Mint and market Australian gold.

Here is a summary of this confusing situation. Australia’s national gold reserves are stored in the BoE’s London vaults. These reserves cannot be fully audited to verify their quantity or quality yet they are leased to generate income. The counterparty is the Government of Western Australia who is apparently happy to pay fees on an unaudited volume of gold. The gold itself never leaves the vaults. What is really going on here?

John Adams identifies that the most probable explanation for this situation is that Gold Corporation is leasing gold from the RBA to back synthetic gold products on its balance sheet. These could be products such as allocated gold pools, Exchange Traded Funds or futures contracts on the COMEX. A situation such as this increases risk within gold markets as investors could be purchasing synthetic products not backed by physical gold. This is reminiscent of fractional reserve banking where banks are allowed to lend more money than they have in deposits.

Australia is just one example of opaque global practices concerning public gold reserves. Central banks are allowed to behave in secretive ways which would be considered unacceptable if replicated by the public. This secrecy is egregious as these are public assets which central banks hold on behalf of the people. In the case of Australia’s gold, it seems the RBA, the BoE and the Government of Western Australia may all be involved in facilitating the sale of synthetic gold products not backed by physical gold. If central banks collude in corrupt practices how can we ever expect commercial entities to behave with integrity?

The management of public resources does not need to be shrouded in such secrecy. Opacity is desirable only for those wishing to hide crimes. Where public assets are concerned we need to implement greater transparency. This could be achieved through public blockchains and we have the right to demand that governments set the standard for transparency. Greater public oversight would ensure integrity within the markets and gold-backed security tokens such as MSGLD are starting to demonstrate how this can be achieved.

The Great Reset & The Need To Own Gold

Gold offers us a safe haven for the turbulent times ahead.

There is concerning discussion about a Great Reset emanating from the world’s most powerful financial protagonists. These statements are more than idle comments, they represent the will of the financial elite to “reset” the world’s economic structure. It seems clear that big changes are being planned.

What do these financial fat cats mean by a Great Reset and how will it impact the 99.9% of the population who do not belong to the financial elite? Change is afoot but the methodology of its implementation is yet to be revealed. In times of economic upheaval, safe-haven assets such as gold have proven time and again to offer us a safe store of value.

The financial lessons of the past may be more relevant today than ever.

Those who seek truth are aware that history is written by the victors. The narratives of world events have been twisted and manipulated to bamboozle the public into false perspectives. When we look back across the last 100 years of contemporary history we realize that our educational systems and media have spoon-fed us lies that benefit the financial elite. Our history books strive to disguise the false flags, profiteering, collusion and treason which have been at the twisted roots of global events. So with a cautious sense of scepticism lets analyse the Great Reset that is being planned for us.

Talk of the Great Reset is primarily emanating from the World Economic Forum which has been criticized as a club for those profiting from resource exploitation. You can watch their propaganda video for the Great Reset here which features statements from such pillars of society as Founder and Executive Chairman Klaus Schwab and Prince Charles.

Participants of the World Economic Forum’s yearly meeting in Davos include corporations like Bayer/Monsanto, BP, Soros Fund Management, and Mastercard. This is a well-rounded group of profiteers with outstanding track records for honesty, integrity, environmental protection and supporting the poor. Sarcasm aside, it is imperative that when these guys talk we listen carefully.

As part of the Great Reset, the World Economic Forum is promoting the concept of a Fourth Industrial Revolution. In this new era, they will utilize artificial intelligence and facial recognition to track all human movement while people meld with machines. You can watch their full promotional film for the Fourth Industrial Revolution here, but the first major statement is:

The very idea of human beings as some sort of natural concept is really going to change. Our bodies will be so high-tech we won’t be able to really distinguish between what’s natural and artificial.

An excellent dissection of the World Economic Forum’s propaganda was created by Neil McCoy-Ward and should be watched here. It is clearly useful for the economic elite to use technology to track and monitor everybody but what in this discussion represents a “reset”?

Cui Bono — a principle that probable responsibility for an act or event lies with one having something to gain.

Perhaps the “reset” in Great Reset refers to resetting our financial system and there are indications this could happen. Our currencies are called fiat because they have no real basis for value. Fiat currencies are seemingly created out of thin air by accounting tricks and loaned to the people with interest that can never be repaid. It seems shocking that nobody ever seems to ask who the American people owe 27 trillion dollars to!

Since this latest incarnation of the Federal Reserve in 1913, the real purchasing power of the US dollar has been eroded by 96% through inflation. Inflation should be viewed as a hidden tax on people’s savings as it eats away at the real value of the currency, profiting the financial elite at the expense of everyone else. If you are unaware of the history of the Federal Reserve it is important to watch G. Edward Griffin discussing his seminal book The Creature From Jekyll Island here. With only 4% value left to steal in the US dollar perhaps, it’s time to “reset” the currency?

There is talk that major central banks such as the Federal Reserve and European Central Bank will soon be migrating global currencies to Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDC). Such a move could allow the world’s largest financial crimes to be swept under the carpet. CBDCs could “reset” our financial systems which are already teetering on the edge of collapse.

There are rumours that CBDCs could launch in early 2021. If this happens, who knows what value we will be allowed to transfer over from our fiat savings into these new CBDCs. Any such transition should be conducted with complete transparency but this seems unlikely. The founder of the World Economic Forum, Klaus Schwab recently said:

Everything will be digitalized, which can be digitalized.

With the world’s financial elite promoting a digital Great Reset it seems imperative that we look for stores of value which we can carry through the transition. Gold has been a safe store of value since ancient times and has outlasted every historical financial system. It will also outlast fiat currencies and the monumental changes that seem poised to engulf us.

To protect our financial future it seems wise to buy gold now before these changes are forced upon us. There is safety in gold.
