Willem Middelkoop On The Big Reset

As you can read in my bio, Willem Middelkoop was the reason I started to read about economics in 2009. He’s the most well known gold investor in the Netherlands and one of the few who openly debates mainstream economists and speaks out his critical thoughts about the current status of the international monetary system. In this post I would like to share his thoughts on what he calls The Big Reset, which is also the titel of his latest book: The Big Reset – The War On Gold And The Financial Endgame. In short, Middelkoop states the current international monetary system has entered its last term and is up for a reset.

Middelkoop, like me, didn’t study economics in university, which I think gave us both an advantage in analyzing economics. Middelkoop saw the collapse of the real estate market coming in 2006, Ben Bernanke didn’t.

Can the global credit expansion ‘experiment’ from 2002 – 2008, which Bernanke completely underestimated, be compared to the global QE ‘experiment’ from 2008 – present?

The above video is one of the reasons I like to listen to Middelkoop every now and then. In the next presentation he shares his thoughts on the future of our monetary system and how gold, the US and China are paramount for its outcome. The presentation was held on a Dutch congress called Geld Voor De Toekomst (money for the future) on September 30, 2014, in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. Note, Willem doesn’t pretend to be an economist, he’s an investor and an Author.
