“The Matterhorn Interview – 25 Nov 2013: Dimitri Speck – Part 2”

In the second part of this exclusive video interview (18 mins) for Matterhorn Asset Management, independent financial journalist Lars Schall talked with book author Dimitri Speck 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 Speck’s views on the rigging of the silver market in light of intraday statistics.
