The disconnect between the massive physical buying of gold versus the falling paper derivatives price has now become nothing short of extraordinary. While we have all seen the figures describing the gold buying frenzy in China and India, now we have some more detailed information about what is happening on the ground in Dubai. Incredibly, we find that since the April paper price crash, 50 tons of gold has been purchased, which is the equivalent of the entire amount of 51.8 tons purchased in all of 2012.
We discuss that feeling you get when you’ve blown your life savings on a carnival game and all you have to show for it is a stuffed banana with dreadlocks and how the entire global financial system is not too dissimilar. They also note that those blowing their life savings on a rigged game, or stock market, always seem to turn to doubling down in a vain attempt to win back all that they lost. In the second half, Max talks to the author of Paper Money Collapse, Detlev Schlichter of DetlevSchlichter.com, about ECB policy, the gold battle between Chinese housewives and Wall Street.
We discuss the Great Leap Forward in central banks’ central planning which has driven the Housewives of China to buy 300 tons of gold, an act of disloyalty to the central bank revolution. Max notices that Mrs. Wang has displaced Mrs Watanabe as the most important buyer in global financial markets. In the second half, Max talks to Alasdair MacLeod of Goldmoney.com about everything to do with the physical and paper gold markets – from open interest to naked short selling by bullion banks.
What’s interesting about gold, when we had that big break two weeks ago we saw all the gold stocks trade down significantly, we saw all the gold products trade down significantly, but one thing that did not trade down, was gold coins, tangible real gold. That’s going to show you, people don’t want certificates, they don’t want anything else. They want the real product.

We are off to see the price fixers, who rig and rig and rig and rig and rig – but only for Jamie, Lloyd and Blythe! They look at how amateur the Illuminati and Bilderbergers are compared to the modern day Fixers of Oz who control all prices from behind their golden kimono. In the second half of the show Max talks to Satyajit Das, author of Extreme Money, about Japan’s extreme monetary policy and about extreme price fixing at the heart of the global economy.
We discuss the season for CRASH as algos reading Twitter cause a hack crash in New York; ghost traders in the shadow banking system cause gold ‘slaughters’ in the precious metals markets and Joe Weisenthal seeks smoke signals from the Pope of Fraud, Ben Bernanke. In the second half of the show Max talks to Andrew Maguire about precious metals markets, manipulation and failures to deliver.
Hi Max: I am a regular watcher of your show (great stuff!!).
Did you notice what happened SIMULTANEOUSLY on the gold and silver spot NYC markets at 11:30 a.m. today (April 26, 2013). This is exactly as described by your guest Andrew Maguire. These manipulating bastards don’t even bother to hide their manipulations any more…it is “in your face.” I am buying as much physical silver as I can afford. Every time the market is manipulated down I buy more.
We discuss Reinhart and Rogoff, Excel errors, correlation and causation and the gold selloff being a bonus for ‘activist central bankers’ who can now claim ‘hyperinflation no longer a threat.’ In the second half of the show, they talk to Dr. Paul Craig Roberts about the smack down in gold and the failure of ‘laissez-faire capitalism’.
Anyone on the fence with regard to Bitcoin should consider coming to the side of supporting it after reading Paul Krugman’s ridiculous and riddled with errors hit-piece in the New York Times this weekend. The key tipoff as to where he is coming from in this absurd editorial is in the title itself in which he calls Bitcoin an “antisocial network.” Anti-social is one of the most favored collectivist/fascist terms and concepts of all time. A term meant to demonize those in a particular society that think for themselves rather than conform to whatever the oligarchs or dictators in charge of the state deem appropriate or “social.” Jews would have been seen as “antisocial” in Nazi Germany, just as anyone with glasses would have been deemed “antisocial” in Pol Pot’s Cambodia. This is a very dangerous term and one that is intended to guilt people into the acceptance of a stale, authoritarian and conformist society.
