Jim Willie: Two key and inevitable events are upcoming that will change the scope of global finance and usher in a return of gold as money

The RESET is in progress. Many are its elements. Like the Gold-Oil-RMB futures contracts in Shanghai. Like the Cross-Border Interbank Payment System (CIPS) which will function as the SWIFT alternative for Eastern nations. The entire Belt and Road Initiative forms a massive $6 to $8 trillion conference table of projects, mostly construction, all in the Eastern Hemisphere, and none conducted in USDollar terms. Many are the non-USD platforms under development, some of which have been around for a while like the BRICS Development Bank. Lately, a new piece has been put in the picture, with the BRICS Gold Platform. My suspicion is that Turkey might soon play a role with it, in conversion of sovereign subprime (toxic) bonds like the US Treasuries and EuroBonds. Keep in mind that Italian Govt Bonds deserve a 10% yield, like the Greek Govt Bonds, except that the Euro Central Bank has been subsidizing these toxic (in)securities. 

An astute and very well-informed source with solid connections has provided important direction on the development. Timing is always difficult. He looks toward two key events that soon will trigger a global financial crisis, complete with a wave of reforms and solutions sought, all amidst great changes in financial markets. Expect a complete restructuring of the financial world we know it, as in debt restructure. The result will be a gold-centric financial structure, with central banks honoring finally the Gold Standard and the gold asset in banking reserves. The shift will be seen toward not only implementation of the Gold Standard, but also the Chinese RMB and possibly a key role for crypto-currencies. Confirmation is coming from the mainstream media. During the Systemic Lehman Event, otherwise called the bust of the Everything Bond Bubble (from QE squared), some sovereign bonds will be defaulted upon, with painful consequences from the failures. During the upcoming bust, certain entire national banking systems will collapse. 

In the upcoming chaos, tremendous changes will come, as part of the Global Paradigm Shift. In the reforms and much needed solutions, the suppression controls and shackles for Precious Metals will be shoved aside. The source has expectations of key events unfolding rapidly, with no prospect of much delay or favorable outcome for the US Dollar, since Gold cannot hold back any longer. Bear in mind the gigantic Egyptian gold investor, where something like 50% of his wealth was invested in gold bullion metal. The shrewd investors expect only PM to survive the big burn that comes, and not much else, surely not paper assets when the King Dollar suffers its fate. The source is not certain how much longer the suppression of price and news can be maintained. It surely will not last another year, more like at most several months. Events are picking up in accelerated speed and breadth for the non-USD platforms. By the way, the source is not Santa himself, Mr. Sinclair. 

Then the source emphasized this. He awaits two key globally important events, which are set to occur. Nothing can stop them, and both will be powerful. He knows what they are, but is not at liberty to offer further details, very clear events in development. They are near-term triggers, which will release Gold & Silver prices. Once gold is released, silver will take flight. He stressed how the Global Currency RESET will have some very visible unexpected aspects in a complete restructuring of the financial world versus its present form. He seems to be part of the planned restructure, planning, testing, and implementation, if not the upcoming crisis management. – Golden Jackass via Goldseek
