Bill Haynes: The Runaway Gold Market
Tom welcomes a new guest to the show, Bill Haynes, the owner and President of CMI Gold & Silver. Bill discussed his early career as a stockbroker in the 70s and what led him to start his bullion business in 1973.
He discusses some of the significant events that happened with gold during his career and the results of Nixon closing the gold window.
Bill believes that gold could reach 4 or 5 thousand in the next couple of years. He says, “People need to buy gold before it gets too expensive.”
He discusses the Fed and treasury and how the bond market works. The massive debt binging under the Trump administration has resulted in seven trillion being added to the national debt. He sees this likely to increase under Biden.
Bill’s book “The Last Gold Rush Ever” discusses the idea of a runaway gold market and a final rush into gold before it goes mainstream and becomes an established item in every investor’s portfolio.
He discusses “The War on Cash” and how we are entering into banana republic levels of money printing. He says, “We’re overextended, and the military drain on the US economy continues to be massive.”
In a crisis, silver would become the money of everyday use while gold would facilitate larger transactions.
There is a risk of confiscation, but not in the immediate future. Today, everyone measures wealth in dollars, and there could come a time when wealth is again measured against ounces.
He cautions investors not to buy numismatic collectible coins because the premiums are too high, and usually, investors don’t get that premium back when they sell. You want to buy coins that bring you the most metal for dollar outlay.
