Currency Ranked Returns – GBP in Fiat and Precious Metals In Last 5 Years

Gold continues to hover near its 11 month high in dollar terms and near new records and the €1,400 level in euro terms.

The lack of confidence over Spain’s finances has kept investors alert as they await a US jobless report on Friday to ascertain just how poorly the US economy is. Recent data suggests that the US economy is in a recession and may be on the verge of a Depression.

Recent disappointing economic data from Australia and China increased speculation of more ‘quantitative easing’ from central banks after Australia’s surprise rate cut yesterday. The Aussie dollar has fallen by nearly 3% already this week after the rate cut.

Although Spain’s Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy denied a Reuters report of an imminent request for a bailout, Spain has taken centre stage in the eurozone debt crisis while Greece, Portugal, Italy and France wait in the wings.

Bill Gross has compared the US government's reliance on debt financing to a "crystal meth" addict, in the latest in a series of dire warnings from one of the most influential investors in the bond market.

"The US, in fact, is a serial offender, an addict whose habit extends beyond weed or cocaine and who frequently pleasures itself with budgetary crystal meth", said Gross, who manages the $273bn Total Return bond fund for PIMCO.

Gross places the US in a "ring of fire" that includes countries with precarious finances such as Greece, Spain and Japan. He said that failing to address the problem would ultimately lead to government printing of money and inflation. "Bonds would be burned to a crisp and stocks would certainly be singed; only gold and real assets would thrive within the "Ring of Fire"."

Industrial unrest in South Africa has deepened and is spreading from the mining sector to other sectors of the economy. Gold Fields, South Africa’s second-biggest producer of the metal, said striking workers threw fire bombs at cars today (see News).

The South African truckers strike has halted the delivery of goods across the country, as more than 20,000 truckers dig in on their demands for higher wages.

ATMs ran out of cash, fuel stations were running dry and hospitals saw vital coal supplies diminish as the nation felt the pinch from the strike that entered its second week. Petrol stations have begun to dry up in several areas in Gauteng province, the country's economic centre.

The strike in the gold mining sector continues to put a halt to 39% of the nation’s sizeable gold output. This is supporting gold.

XAU/GBP Daily 2 Years – (Bloomberg)

The well followed and influential UK blog 'Guido Fawkes' has an interesting blog today again warning of the significant risk that rampant money creation will lead to rampant inflation

It also points out the hypocrisy of the current UK Conservative / Liberal Democrat government.

In a post entitled 'Mugabenomics: Inflation in UK Higher than in Zimbabwe,' Guido Fawkes points out how the Liberal Democrats Vince Cable once warned that Quantitative Easing (QE) was “Mugabenomics.”

This was prior to coming to power and a swift u-turn which would make even the most slippery politician proud.

Remember when Vince Cable warned that Quantitative Easing (QE) was “Mugabenomics”? Vince flip-flopped on that even before he joined the coalition.

Guido Fawkes then reminds its readers about the time when George Osborne said “Printing money is the last resort of desperate governments when all other policies have failed.”

Alas as the blog rightly warns, "In government Osborne has overseen the printing of more money than any other Chancellor in British history. A quarter of the national debt – all this government’s overspending – has been bought by the Bank of England via QE."

“So it is not a shock that inflation in Zimbabwe (3.63%) is now lower than inflation in the UK (3.66%, August 2011-July 2012).”

Those who have been warning about this monetary madness for some years are gradually being proved right.

Bank of England and UK government policies have already seen the British pound fall sharply in the last 5 years. The pound has fallen sharply versus stronger fiat currencies such as the Japanese yen and Swiss franc and by much more against gold and silver.

The pound has fallen by 208% against gold and by 229% against silver in the last five years (see table above)and the continuation of similar monetary policies will likely see similar falls in the coming five years.

Like the world’s largest bond fund manager, Bill Gross, Guido Fawkes correctly and pithily comes to the conclusion that "gold is good."
