    AUTHOR

    Kelly Mitchell works as a strategic business analyst. With
    a lengthy career in investing, a deep knowledge of the
    globalized economy and an unconventional insight into
    modern markets, he brings a unique, much-needed voice
    to a largely one-sided debate.  He is also the author of A
    Spiritual Autopsy of Science and Religion and Advise
    Yourself: Exposing the Financial Adviser Scam.  Mitchell
    provides insight on financial protection in today's
    corrupted markets at gold-wars.com.

    SYNOPSIS


    Gold Wars: Battle for the Global Economy addresses the grotesque,
    growing and unsustainable imbalances in the financial system. As gold is
    the barometer of systemic ills, a war on gold–to drive down its price—is
    taking place to hide the negative impacts of fiat currency, shadow banking
    and central banking on the global financial system.

    Starting with an introductory discussion on the nature of money and the
    bizarre fractional reserve structure currently in place, Mitchell moves on to
    address the massive, but little known systemic pivot point: the Petrodollar
    standard. Tying dollars to oil, this mechanism undergirds the dollar’s
    reserve status. But soon it will fail with paradigm shifting consequences.

    Next, Mitchell addresses the twins of shadow banking and central banking
    (with a quick interlude to look at the traits of physical gold). Then, with the
    stage set and the distortions, corruptions and levers of power in better view,
    he examines a few historical precedents and likely outcomes through
    deflationary/inflationary effects and their combinations.

    Gold Wars features a detailed breakdown of the gross manipulations in the
    gold market - from nonexistent paper gold, smackdowns, high-frequency
    trading, and ETF’s to Central Bank games like swapping/leasing, shell
    accounting, midnight raids, clandestine gold movements and regulatory
    attacks on investors. Mitchell offers a prediction of the results for the gold
    market: when the manipulation fails, paper and physical prices will separate,
    with the physical selling for multiples of paper.

    Similarly silver, with its own unique characteristics for industry and
    investment, is also targeted as a potential refuge for flight from paper,
    though strangely, above-ground gold is now more plentiful than silver.  Add
    to this a silver short position rolling from one institution to another as each
    fails, a 4-year foot dragging investigation into market fraud, and a class
    action suit for manipulation and the market has a recipe for a pressure
    cooker at maximum.

    Western banks, lacking the gold to cover their obligations, will eventually
    declare a force majeure—an event supposedly the result of the elements of
    nature, as opposed to one caused by human behavior—as a pretext for
    settling their obligations in increasingly valueless paper.

    Where is the resistance to this distortion and corruption of value? Power is
    flowing East as China and Russia have drawn in massive amounts of gold
    while denying the inflow. The BRICS will unveil a gold backed trade note to
    supplant the dollar. Simultaneously, they will force the US debt back home
    in exchange for real assets, choking the Fed/Treasury on the mountain of
    paper, and grabbing the financial power.  This momentous shift is already
    underway.

    What is to be done?  Some radical solutions are examined to reset the
    imbalances of the current system. Money issued directly by the Treasury
    instead of the government would have no debt component, clearing up
    numerous imbalances, ending the need for an income tax, and restoring
    control of money to the people. A Resource Based Economy would end
    capitalism, instead focusing on natural resources as common human
    heritage. Emphasizing efficiencies, open-source knowledge, and completely
    free goods and services, an RBA would restructure civilization at the root
    level. Resource waste for profit, wealth inequalities, poverty, and monetary
    control of governance would end.
