Why Silver Will Increase More Than Gold During The Next Financial Collapse

There are two crucial factors why silver will increase more in value than gold during the next financial meltdown. These factors are not well known by many precious metals analysts because they focus on antiquated information and knowledge. While several individuals in the precious metals community forecast a much higher Gold-Silver ratio during the next financial crash, I see quite the opposite taking place.

For example, Lynette Zang, at ITM Trading, has suggested in recent videos, that the gold to silver ratio will increase significantly during the upcoming currency reset. She believes this based on the idea that gold is more the primary monetary metal and has published data showing the surging gold-silver ratio that took place during the end of the Weimar Germany hyperinflation.

Yes, it is true that the gold-silver ratio shot up to 160/1 during the last month of the Weimar hyperinflation, but there was a specific reason why that I will explain shortly. However, the main disagreement that I have with most precious metals analysts on the future value of gold and silver is based on their failure to incorporate “Energy” into their research, work, and forecasts.

While Lynette Zang educates her followers on why it is important to own gold and silver, she does not understand the dire energy predicament we are facing. Thus, she is missing the most critical factor in her analysis. Even the diehard precious metals bull, Peter Schiff, does not understand the negative consequences of the Falling EROI (Energy Returned On Investment) and the thermodynamics of oil depletion. Schiff believes that if the debt was wiped clean and the banks were liquidated, then we could start a new economic boom based on sound money.

However, the collapse of debt and the banking system would destroy our modern economy… for good. There is no way we could survive a cleansing of the debt-based monetary system. Without the debt, most assets have no value.

In Zang’s recent interview CLARIFICATION: Silver/Gold Ratio (Function Vs Fiat), she posted this table of the changing gold-silver ratio during the Weimar Germany hyperinflation:

From 1919 to most of 1923, the gold-silver ratio remained between 14-16/1 as the Reichsmark was printed into oblivion. We can see just how much the value of gold and silver, in Reichsmarks, increased. However, on October 23rd, 1923, the gold-silver ratio shot up to 160/1 and remained there for an entire month. So, why did this occur?

Rob Kirby: It's Not If the System Collapses, It's When

Macroeconomic analyst Rob Kirby says what this all boils down to is: pro-dollar forces vs. anti-dollar forces. Kirby contends, “Three, four and five years ago, countries taking anti-dollar actions would have only included only China, Russia and a few other smaller Asian players. 

Now, we are starting to see friction that is not just Asian players, now it’s Germany. Who’s next?

1177 BC: The Year Civilization Collapsed

From about 1500 BC to 1200 BC, the Mediterranean region played host to a complex cosmopolitan and globalized world-system. It may have been this very internationalism that contributed to the apocalyptic disaster that ended the Bronze Age. 

When the end came, the civilized and international world of the Mediterranean regions came to a dramatic halt in a vast area stretching from Greece and Italy in the west to Egypt, Canaan, and Mesopotamia in the east. 

Large empires and small kingdoms collapsed rapidly. With their end came the world’s first recorded Dark Ages. It was not until centuries later that a new cultural renaissance emerged in Greece and the other affected areas, setting the stage for the evolution of Western society as we know it today. 

Professor Eric H. Cline of The George Washington University will explore why the Bronze Age came to an end and whether the collapse of those ancient civilizations might hold some warnings for our current society.

John Williams: The Fed is Flirting With Massive Sell Off in the Dollar

Economist John Williams sees a declining economy and says, “This is what I see happening. As the economy turns down, that’s a negative for the dollar. 

Most importantly here, if the Fed backs off its tightening and moves back towards quantitative easing, and their minutes allow for it, they’re going to do that. Right now, the dollar is being supported by expectations of a higher interest rate. 

As the fed moves back towards quantitative easing, you are very likely going to see a massive sell-off in the dollar. The massive sell-off in the dollar becomes very inflationary. This is a big problem right now for the Fed.”
