"World Insecurity” May Have “Positive Impact On Gold" - Ex BOE Mervyn King
In his keynote address to the Diggers and Dealers conference in Perth, former governor of the Bank of England Mervyn King had positive thoughts on gold, arguing world insecurity could have “a positive impact on gold.”

He said that global geopolitical and economic uncertainty will boost commodity prices including gold.

He also warned that all countries would have to face up to mounting debt levels and said that central bank’s ultra loose monetary policies were not the answer.

"We are beginning to discover that the reason the world recovery is so slow is that monetary policy isn't the answer now, and other policies need to be put in place to rebalance the world economy," he said.

"No one country on its own will find it easy to do this.”

"It will require a recasting of relationships between different major economies and that requires an acceptance that trade surpluses will have to diminish in order to allow the countries that previously borrowed a great deal to to reduce their trade deficits, and gradually reduce their indebtedness”.

"That requires a change to the global economy as a whole, not just to any one country."

King echoed the IMF’s Lagarde recent declaration that the world needs a “global economic reset”.
