John Adams: The Silver Sex Scandal
Tom welcomes back John Adams to the show. John is an economist and internationally recognized thought leader. He is the Chief Economist for As Good As Gold Australia.
John discusses in-depth his legal interactions with Kitco over the past ten months and how he was threatened under Australian libel laws. Kitco claimed to have severe damages from John’s tweets which questioned the nature of various companies’ unallocated fractional reserve metal offerings. Kitco claimed damages but failed to disclose their nature. Numerous other individuals worldwide have also questioned Kitco’s offerings. Kitco’s legal firm failed to respond to the majority of John’s legal questions.
John eventually received a surprising response from Kitco legal firm Dentons which claimed that threats of violence had been made against employee(s) of said firm. The threats came from someone “acting in response to the incendiary rhetoric and vilification of Kitco and Dentons in your client’s social media postings.” They further stated they had referred the matter to Law enforcement, specifically the NSW Police. John contacted the NSW Police with an offer to answer any questions but law enforcement never followed up. At this point, the matter is assumed to be closed as many months have now passed.
Lastly, John discusses the risks of having metals in unallocated pool accounts and why these programs don’t provide legal ownership.
