We are now starting the hyperinflationary phase in the USA and many other countries as a result of the accelerated fall of the U.S. dollar and this will be reflected in the parabolic rise in the price of gold over the next few years.

von Greyerz goes on to say in further edited excerpts:
…When a country lives above its means for an extended period and prints money which it can never pay back, the rest of the world will punish the country and its currency. It took the U.S. over 200 years to reach a debt of US$8 trillion. Since Bernanke became chairman of the Fed in 2006, US debt has more than doubled to $17 trillion. That is an incredible ‘achievement’ and the beginning of the parabolic rise of US debt not by tens of trillions but by 100 of trillions of dollars. This is no different to the Weimar Republic or Zimbabwe and a completely natural consequence of what is happening now.
In real terms, which of course is gold, the dollar has lost 98% since the creation of the Fed in 1913.[In summary,] the U.S. dollar fall has started and will continue to accelerate….
In history there has never been a situation when most major economies were in the same dire situation [at the same time – until now].
- Japan is a basket case with 200% debt to GDP and a rapidly aging population.
- China has a major credit bubble.
- Most of Europe is badly indebted with high unemployment and a social structure which makes it very uncompetitive.
For the few investors who are fortunate to have some savings to protect, physical gold (stored outside the banking system) will perfectly reflect the fall of the dollar and other currencies by rising parabolically in the next few years.

The correlation between the gold price, silver price and the debt growth has been amazingly accurate since 2001. Government spends too much money to perform a few essential services and to buy votes, wars, and welfare, and thereby increases its debt almost every year, while gold and silver prices, on average, match the increases in accumulated national debt.

The price of gold, on a quarterly basis, is 86% correlated – yes, 86%! – to total government debt going back to 1975… and a shocking 98% over the past 15 years!. Despite the current rumblings, everyone is aware that the debt ceiling will be raised and will likely surpass $20 trillion by the end of President Obama’s term. That would put the price of gold at about $2,000 per ounce. Read More »
The price of gold, on a quarterly basis, is 86% correlated – yes, 86%! – to total government debt going back to 1975… and a shocking 98% over the past 15 years! [As such,] it would seem like a no-brainer investment thesis to buy gold… as a proxy for the not-otherwise-investable thesis that US total government debt will increase in the future. [But there is more – and it is disappointment for gold bugs – read on!] Read More »
