In his latest interview for the X22 Report, Claudio Grass shares his views on the future of the Euro, the Trump Presidency, the collapsing monetary system and the advantage of gold in these times of global uncertainty.
As election season is upon us in Europe and the both political and economic tensions are heating up, Claudio Grass hits the nail right on the head: "The euro is the most artificial currency in history", he said, highlighting one of the most fundamental problems at the heart of the EU troubles. However, it is undeniable that public awareness is growing, as he pointed out, and actively opposing the very idea of centralised power. Thus, a breakup of the EU is a possible scenario, one that must be taken seriously into account as it could trigger a domino effect, with extensive repercussions. Brexit and Trump have created a strong precedent that could fuel many more surprises for the establishment in the upcoming EU elections.
And that's exactly where the Swiss advantage comes in. Claudio Grass highlights that, contrary to its neighbours, Switzerland is the only country that still respects individual liberties, financial sovereignty and private property. These values are inscribed in its constitution, limiting the powers of the state and making sure that it is the people who control their government and not the other way around.
Regarding gold, Claudio Grass's outlook is a crystal clear one: The physical ownership of gold is insurance, it provides security over the long haul. Especially in the light of the current political and economic global instability, topped with deep-rooted social tensions, investments in gold are not to be seen as speculation vehicles, but as the only real way of saving and maintaining value over the uncertain years to come.
Asked if anything has changed since 2008, he points out that if anything, things got worse: The financial system is more centralised, government debt keeps piling up, the people are even more disempowered while government-sponsored jobs are on the rise – so are food stamps recipients. On a social level, the obliteration of the middle class, combined with the exacerbation of mainstream media propaganda and political correctness, are only pushing people to reach for an alternative. They are getting tired of being told what to think and how to think, which opinion is allowed and which is not.
We are now only in the beginning of what will likely be a rough and turbulent transition period. One can only hope that it will be peaceful, although there is no reliable way of predicting the exact outcome. He still sees room for optimism, however: "It's never too late" for citizens to stand up and reclaim their liberties.
