520 8  What is money really worth any more? This study outlines 
       the rise of 'fiat' money and its associated economic 
       implications. The author provides enough circumstantial 
       evidence to claim a secret War on Gold since the London 
       Gold Pool of the 1960s, highlighting gold's traditional 
       role as the anchor of financial systems. To combat the 
       economic fallout of the credit crisis, governments have 
       allowed their budgetary deficit to increase dramatically. 
       To redress that imbalance, they then have to sell enormous
       amounts of bonds. As investors stop buying bonds, central 
       banks have to step up to the plate by printing more and 
       more money. Piling more and more bad debt onto the balance
       sheets of central banks is not a sustainable way to revive
       the economy. Middelkoop--who predicted meltdown in 2007--
       highlights the process as part of our economic endgame 
       which he predicts will eventually lead to a big reset of 
       our worldwide financial system.
