Wise investors look beyond particular assets and markets, to understand the global context in which their wealth must be protected. There is no better way to grasp that context than to follow the Gold Chronicles every month with Jim Rickards.
Savvy investors understand the true function of gold—as insurance for their portfolios of digital and financial assets.

“In our time, the aureate has become brazen—the golden has become brass. A return to true value based on trust is long overdue.”
“It may be too late to save the dollar, but it is not too late to preserve wealth. We live in an ersatz monetary system that has reached its end stage.”
“So the dollar is money, money is value, value is trust, trust is a contract, and the contract is debt.”
“The gross size of all bank derivatives positions now exceeds $650 trillion, more than nine times global GDP.”
“Workers receive raises in nominal terms, while wages adjust downward in real terms. This is a form of money illusion or deception of workers by central banks, but it works in theory to lower real unit labor costs.”
“When it comes to betting on a sure thing, greed trumps common sense and makes the bet irresistible.”
