The Goldsmiths—Part LXV

-- Posted Friday, 10 April 2009 | | Source:

By R. D. Bradshaw


The preceding articles on excessive inflation/hyperinflation allow a student of history to come to several conclusions on the impact or fall out of such inflation on a nation or people.  For example, we saw how it wipes out savings and indeed the concept of saving money for a later time in one’s life when he will need some savings. 


We saw that it creates shortages of almost everything—to include food and necessities.  The food problem can ultimately reach the famine stage.  Perhaps part of the problem has been that there is no incentive to work hard or act responsibly when the government undertakes the process of abandoning a stable money system for a fiat money system which makes profits and gains for the select few while damaging and hurting the rest of the population.  Yes, while the super rich are getting richer and richer during the inflation rise and ultimate blow off, the middle class is wiped out and the poor get even poorer if that is possible. 


The turmoil, pain and suffering from the inflationary blow out in time creates social, political, economic, and financial problems which simply don’t go away without some drastic measures.  It’s bad enough that these problems combine and accelerate in the inflation rise cycle but they continue and grow even when a totalitarian state is imposed with hard money and the inflation problems are seemingly dealt with. 


The Confidence Problem


While many analysts can study and look at these surfacing problems and detect some apparent causes (as arising during the period of excessive inflation/hyperinflation), the whole thing can seemingly be reduced to one issue—the loss of confidence (as was briefly touched upon in the Goldsmiths, Parts LVII and LIX).  This Goldsmiths will address the matter of confidence which seems to be paramount both in creating the problems and quite naturally in attempting to solve them once they are on top of the nation. 


The problem over confidence seems to first raise its head once the inflationary cycle starts to expand beyond reasonable levels.  It seems to arise in the case of a paper money system that is not specifically tied to precious metals or hard money.  The paper money becomes fiat money as the government prints more and more of it to do those things they want to do (for politicians, the thing they want most of all is to be re-elected; and for the ruling plutocratic money changers, the things they want are more money and more control over the governing politicians, kings, etc). 


What happens initially is that the population begins to lose confidence in their money.  Manifestly, if the money is depreciating so fast that one can’t save it or even keep it overnight and have something of equal value tomorrow or later, then the incentive to own and have money begins to vanish.  Thus, what we have happen is that there is a push on to spend the money as fast as one gets it in order to get something of equal value out of it.  If one waits and don’t spend it, it will depreciate in value and buy less.  In other words, there is a penalty for holding money. 


But the loss of confidence in the nation’s money is only the first part of the problem because the loss of confidence begins to spread to other things over time. 


And that’s where production of goods and services starts to fall, where unemployment increases, where the nation begins to have social problems (in a multi-racial and multi-cultural society like the US, we can bank on it that we face major conflicts, riots and problems), where food begins to be scarce, where law and order start breaking down, where dissatisfaction sets in, where the government finds that its acceptance starts vanishing from the people (the approval ratings for the kings and politicians fall), etc.


Tragically, this whole scenario sets the stage for war, revolution and ultimately a new government.  In order to deal with the problems, the eventual new government inevitably turns to totalitarianism and the imposition of dictatorial rule.  Yes, the loss of personal liberties and a police state are inevitable.  That’s the price a nation must pay once it buys into the “elastic” fiat money policies of the plutocratic money changers as they take over control of money in a state. 


In this process of supposedly correcting the mess made by the money changers and their fiat money practices, it is clear that the nation involved will turn to a confiscation of gold (and guns) and the imposition of a hard money system.  For some time now, I have believed that the US will have all three—a confiscation of gold and guns and a new money system which probably will be partially gold backed (it might be something on the order of the Amero which might can be strengthened with Canadian gold since it is possible that most of the US gold supply is already long gone—the possibilities for the Amero hang to some extent on what happens presently with a one world currency in the SDR mode.  My take is that it is not yet time for a one world currency; thus meaning that there will be transitional days ahead where the Amero or something similar can find traction). 


Mayer Amschel Rothschild once said to permit him to control a nation’s money and he cared not who wrote its laws.  Friend, don’t you get it?  Once the money changers control the money, they control the nation and it matters not what kind of system it has—monarchy, democracy, republican, communism or whatever. 


Yes, the Cabal players controlled Weimar Germany, the Communist USSR and somewhat even Nazi Germany (on this, see Understanding Money and War-VII at  And certainly, since 1913 (if not before), they have controlled the United States.  Their control over Britain goes all the way back to 1694 and the organization of the privately owned Bank of England. 


Even the plotting, conniving and cunning Franklin Rosenfeldt knew how the game of control of people is played.  It is sustained by the maintenance of confidence.  If the people lose confidence, then fear and even panic can set in to cause more profound and serious problems. 


But Another Issue of Confidence.


While the question of confidence among the American people is perhaps the most important one of all, it is not the only one because we must not lose sight of the present dilemma the US faces with its trillions of dollars in IOU paper scattered around the world.  Let us suppose that at some point in time, the Chinese, Japanese and Persian Gulf States start losing confidence in the US.  What do you suppose will happen?  I submit that they will stop taking US IOU instruments and start getting rid of those that they already hold in their inventories. 


Can’t the reader see that if these various foreign states start dumping their US IOUs that there will be panic on an international level?  At that time, we will see real, genuine hyperinflation.  It’s on the drawing boards and cannot be stopped until the while system is in the garbage can and we have WWIII. 



Back issues of the Goldsmiths, by the editor of the Analysis of News, can be accessed from a Google or Yahoo search engine by typing in “R. D.

Besides the revelations contained in the Goldsmiths’ articles, the work of the plutocratic financial market manipulators to conspiratorially manipulate and control the financial markets (to make more profits and install a world government under their management) is also addressed at length in the periodic analysis of the news and in other articles produced at  This website has an article of interest to any person interested in understanding the market Manipulators.  It is the Hidden Secret of the Manipulators, why they succeed and how to follow their manipulations. 


Readers of the above articles are invited to visit and become a subscriber to regularly read some of the material from the world of information which will further reveal how extensive the manipulation, control and dishonesty realities are in the financial, currency and commodity markets, not only in the US but indeed around the world.  To go to the home page of this website, please click at the link here:
