In the second part of this exclusive video interview, 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.

In addition to the interview, you can read here about the so called “Blessing letter” that gets mentioned during the interview.
Dimitri Speck is a quantitative asset manager, trading system developer and gold market analyst from Munich, Germany. He specializes in pattern recognition. As part of this activity he came across an anomaly in the gold price, and he was ultimately able to demonstrate systematic interventions in the gold market since August 1993. Speck, who is a consultant to the US-based Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee, GATA, wrote the book “The Gold Cartel: Government Intervention on Gold, the Mega Bubble in Paper, and What This Means for Your Future,“ published in late 2013 at Macmillan – see here.

‘The Gold Cartel is a brisk, articulate and convincing read. … A miracle! ’ – Professor Heinz Christian Hafke, former German Bundesbank Director

Moreover, he is the founder and editor of the website “Seasonal Charts” (www.seasonalcharts.com), where accurate daily seasonal charts are illustrated. He is a well-known expert on precious metals investment analysis, and he has been interviewed for a number of investment letters and websites and has spoken at industry events on the topic.
