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.
