Jim Rickards: If gold is money again, it goes to between $4,000 and $11,000
Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:
Jim Rickards, director of market intelligence for McLean, Virginia-based consulting firm Omnis, was allowed onto CNBC again today to make gold-friendly comments. You may recall his blunt statement on CNBC back in September: "When you own gold, you're fighting every central bank in the world":
Today Rickards remarked that the United States and China are devaluing their currencies against each other in a game of chicken, that gold should easily reach $2,000 per ounce next year just as a matter of supply and demand, and that if gold should start being considered money again, it would have to rise to between $4,000 and $11,000 to support the big increase in the world's money supply.
You can watch Rickards' comments at the CNBC archive here:
Just please don't tell CNBC that this is all GATA-type stuff.
