Last week the Bundesbank (the German central bank) surprised markets around the world by announcing that it will repatriate a sizable portion of its gold bullion reserves held in France and the United States. To many, the news from the world's second largest holder of gold signaled a growing, if clandestine, mistrust among central banks, possibly fueled by diverging policy goals. The Germans have attempted to tamp down the alarm by highlighting the myriad of logistical, practical and historical reasons that qualified the announcement as unremarkable. But the size, scope, and timing of the move makes it hard not to draw...
The Germans see the 'writing on the wall' of the world economic situation, the fumbling of our economic "experts" as we refuse to address our debt and spending problems and know very well that this will not last. Possibly in the near future and definitely at some point, this bubble will burst and the entire thing will crash. Prepare while you can. Surviving urban crisis.
