On behalf of Matterhorn Asset Management Zurich, Lars Schall met up with Munich based quantitative market research analyst and author Dimitri Speck. Dimitri also serves as a consultant to the US-based Gold Antri-Trust Action Committee (GATA).

In Part 1 of this excellent interview Dimitri Speck explains in detail what the effect of agreements between the FED, other central banks and bullion banks has been during the past 20 years. And why the original motivation to suppress the gold price was to lower the inflation expectations of the people and therewith directly also support bond prices as well as maintaining a relatively strong US currency in the process.

In Part 2  “THE DOUBLE FACE OF GOLD”, Dimitri Speck talks about, inter alia: the prime virtues of gold as the antagonist of the fiat money/credit system; the notable central bank arrangement between the US Fed and the Deutsche Bundesbank in 1967 preparing the terrain for the dollar standard; the asset price inflation phases that followed ever after; the rising importance of gold in the central banking system; and last but not least his views on the rigging of the silver market in light of intraday statistics.
