The Real Reason Central Banks Are Desperate to Hoard Gold: E.B. Tucker

"Big tech companies are laying off 10% of their workforce, this is going to have a huge effect," warns E.B. Tucker, bestselling author of Why Gold, Why Now? "We are slowly grinding towards a position where something weak will crack," he tells Daniela Cambone on this episode of Powershift: Outlook 2023. "The crypto story is speculative mania blow off coming back down to Earth... To their detriment, central banks are going to make their own crypto," he continues. "Nothing is going up in value on a speculative basis. You have to remain solvent in order to play the next inning," Tucker says. While the Fed remains on their current path, "it's really hard for people to wait, but you're in a scenario right now where if you make a big move, you're probably going to get hurt," he warns. "The [gold] resource producer is beginning to assert power they haven't had in 25 years. You want to own the actual physical resources," Tucker says. "The people that think the dollar is going to crash are dreaming, it is not something that just disappears," he continues. "The system is majorly broken, it's a centrally planned economy," Tucker concludes. #gold #dollar #federalreserve ⭐️ Join Daniela Cambone's exclusive community ➡️ ➡️ Follow us on Facebook: ➡️ Follow us on Twitter: ➡️ Follow us on Instagram: ➡️ Follow us on LinkedIn: Investors have been fleeing stocks in droves over the past year due to rampant market volatility.
