    What it means and what it doesn’t – Part II – Claudio Grass, Precious Metal Advisory In Switzerland

    Although the parity event may have captured the attention of the mainstream financial press and most western citizens, there’s a much bigger shift that has been going on in the background, which received much less coverage. We are all familiar with the concept of a currency war. In essence, it is basically one of the most crude examples of governments colluding with their central banks (the ones that are supposed to be independent and make unbiased decisions, always in the best interests of the people and their economic prosperity), in order to manipulate the currency to gain a trade advantage. Purposefully devaluing a nation’s currency makes its exports cheaper relative…

    “Whatever it takes” – Part II of II – Claudio Grass, Precious Metal Advisory In Switzerland

    The threat of a far-right takeover has been around for at least three decades in Europe and Italy has been one of the best “candidates” for the “beginning of the end” since the last European crisis ten years ago. Back then it was the Lega, led by Salvini, that fueled the scaremongering campaigns of the mainstream press, labeling every conservative policy point as basically pure fascism.

Of course, this entire narrative is based on nothing but absolute nonsense and sensationalism.…
