We've all seen the shady gold trading shops that have popped up all over the country over the past decade, evidence of a physical gold market that seems to have appeared out of nowhere.
The following is an eight step tutorial for creating such a market and manipulating global gold prices:
1) Create a series of companies, like Stansberry Research and bitgold and holding companies like Agora, Inc., and encourage Americans to purchase gold, due to the "imminent" collapse of the U.S. dollar.
2) Get a handful of agents of influence, like Ron Paul, Jim Rogers and Lyndon Larouche to help spread the message that the U.S. economy is going to collapse and investors should purchase gold.
3) Set up a bunch of websites, like usdeception.com, zerohedge, investmentwatchblog and dollarcollapse.com, to get the word out.
4) Publish articles that reinforce your apocalyptic narrative in mainstream media venues where you have a lot of influence.
5) Advertise the services of Goldcore and JM Bullion, in order to transfer assets over to Ireland and England, for the purchase of Irish farmland and London commercial property.
6) Publish lots of articles warning folks about those Zionist Jewish banksters at Goldman Sachs and their gold market manipulation.
7) Dump gold in the Middle East, along with the North Koreans, because your gold production costs are among the lowest in the world, North Korea's logically even lower.
8) Encourage ISIS to mint their own coins out of the gold, even encourage them to create a propaganda video with Ron Paul in it, talking about the gold standard.
