    Ahhh, novel presentation of why gold using the periodic table. But it assumes that you're to only use elements as materials and not compound.
    The gold we use isn't pure element form gold either. It has copper in it in minute quantity for strength.

    I agree with many others who discuss the quality content. My struggle is with the desire to allocation some investment to physical gold and the practical realities of storage. Does anyone here have any recommendations of all inclusive solutions for purchasing, delivery and storage of physical gold outside of the US?

    Has anyone heard of I have been evaluating them but it does not seem like they have been active on a marketing front since around 2016.

    Potentially stupid question and maybe I should do some research on monetary policy history before asking but I don't really understand why we came off the gold standard in 1971? I understand the US broke the Bretton Woods agreement "to help pay for the Vietnam war," but if that's the case, how did we "pay" for the previous two World Wars? Also, does anyone have any good charts comparing gold price, US Dollar price, money printing, etc.? Thanks for any clarification!

    The laziness of just 'buying the ETF' blows my mind in gold investing

    Some awful companies take up significant space in the GDX for example - ones whose capital allocation has been so poor you would be better off just owning the metal.

    A great job done by Grant, beuatifully put together. For science nerds I include this 'amazing but true' bit of sciecne. Whilst the carbon and oxygen atoms that make up organic life, are likely the result of supernova; gold it seems is the sole product of extremely rare neutron star collisions billions of years ago. All that gold is interstellar stuff.

    Gold is not money. It's an asset. Paper money depends on consensus, people have to agree to accept it. Gold is an asset that people want. People have wanted it for 1000s of years. So it will only lose it's value if people stop wanting it (or some incredible supply comes to market). But after this long history of people wanting gold I think the odds are people will continue to want gold, so it will have value. There are other things people want but they are not as durable or portable or rare. 100 years from now will people want gold? Probably unless technology makes it common.

    Nicely done. However, I think more should have been said on silver, which has actually been used much more than gold as money, in daily transactions, over the centuries. I was also surprised that Mike Maloney, who does an excellent job of explaining why gold and silver are money, wasn't interviewed. Overall though, very informative.

    I'm ambivalent about pieces like this, and gave it a thumbs-down. While it's excellent and interesting, to me it's in the category of infotainment - and it doesn't contribute at all to investment analysis or decision making (and I found the prior series "World on the Brink" both tedious and useless) With 3 vids coming out per week and great interviews such as those from Jim Grant coming in, perhaps I should consider it as value-added - but not if it's being done at the expense of more useful projects.

    With all of the other great podcasts being produced out there - Grantham on Wealth Track this weekend, Chris Cole on Macrovoices, Peter Bookvar and Yra Harris on FPA, new excellent pieces from Anne Stevenson-Yang, a great 2018 primer from Doubleline, outstanding daily and weekly content on Bloomberg (including Ritzholt's "Masters in Business", etc., Real Vision has been progressively moving down my daily and weekly priority list.

    Most enjoyable! There is one caveat that I would like to see addressed. The tail risk for gold/silver, miners, ETFs, physical, etc. It would be interesting to hear interviewers discussing the percentage of gold/silver that they have in their portfolios and in what instruments. Canada sold half its small gold reserves in 2016/2017. Cypress was forced to sell gold from reserves in its banking crisis. Greece has about $6 billion in gold reserves. Will they be forced to sell before they can get a debt haircut? In the short run, we are always dealing with supply/demand and risk. DLS

    Is it just luck that gold looks great as jewellery as well as being chemically stable to be a long term store of value? Did they South Americans (Incas /Aztecs) just like the look? How much of the allure of gold is just the emotion society has built it into? How did these ideas ultimately shape the way the world see gold today? Ask any man on the street if they want to see and touch a gold bar and he will give a resounding "absolutely", even if he doesn't understand the fiat currency system. Hopefully some comment on these in Part 2?

    Frigging swiss vaults of gold, full of the takings of the greedy and the dodgy and shady (I have swiss heritage and am not proud of this sort of whoring).
    And rick rule talking of protecting his wealth from the depradations of society is off. What about the inequity of ever having such wealth.
    Come the revolution, I am all for society coming after that gold in full force.
    Anyone who is rich and without Buffett and Gate's attitude of giving back is ultimately living in fantasy land. Always wanting to feel safe and secure, to a pathological extent.

Makes me wonder whether each interview will also be used as a piece of content for upcoming RV videos. I guess Ross Beaty will not be a full-size interview considering the background noise.

    Fantastic video. Just a point of discussion,
    Gold is a store of value and has been for thousands of years. I understand Buffet's thinking; at what point do you stop growing your wealth, and start saving it? Thousands of years is a long time, particularly when I only live for 80 or 90. Over this time frame, Gold fluctuates wildly, 400- 500% up or 70, 80, 90% down. And this is against that hot-dog example that Grant used in a previous presentation. Or 1oz buys 260 cups of coffee at $1300 or 200 at $1000 per ounce. That's a big difference for a storage of value.
    (full disclosure, I have my own bars as well as gold mining stocks).

    Once again both content (substance) and production values (form) were excellent. A very well produced and informative interview. And yes, I would love to have a way to share this with family members.

    Just an excellent high quality Production Grant. Very well shot and edited compilation, synthesis, or summary of the subject covered. Interestingly, and what some may not realize, is the Gravitas in the industry enjoyed by the Gentleman you had speak. A lineup of true heavyweights with regard to their expertise, reputation and in some cases, their Financial Net Worth. Quite a Rolodex you’ve acquired over the years my good fellow.

    The debasement of the dollar was made possible by eliminating the gold standard in the United States. It also eliminated the US government from pegging the dollar/gold rate incorrectly - which I am sure it would do repeatedly. Any country that allows its citizens to buy and hold gold - domestic or foreign - is on a gold standard, just not pegged to its currency. Just protect the free market in gold and your gold holdings! You are establishing your own gold standard. Nothing will stop the governments from printing money and gold will increase in value. DLS

    Buy, accumulate, and HODL all the gold. Been doing it for 10 years and I won't stop doing it. One day I'm going to buy a Ferrari with 1oz, and Condo for 2oz, thank you and good night.

    Favorite video yet Grant! Absolutely loved it!!!

    Brilliant. I loved it. I cant wait until Part Two and presumably the evidence from the likes of Dmitri Speck and Andrew McGuire of the manipulation of the price via the Comex and LBMA by the bullion banks, often in collusion with the Fed to ensure price suppression.

    Gold standard ends in '71. The US national debt started to rise exponentially in early 70's and early 80's for US equities. Coincidence? RV should show these charts in next episode.

    Will definitely watch again.

    The bit about the mining techniques where Grant discusses the invention of high pressure water blasting away rock and soil in the 19th century can be dated back further. The Romans used this technique to mine gold in Spain and in the process created an absolutely bizarre landscape

    Another epic production. I had no idea what a storage vault involved. Now I that I know how much people will do and pay to preserve and protect their gold it makes me wonder why gold isn't $5000.
    The storage feature alone brings home the value argument for gold and how rare/precious it is. Some of the history was equally interesting.

    Couldn't you make the argument that the USD right now is backed up by petro? Hence the term petrodollar? Although, still doesn't eliminate the issue of CB backed money printing...

    Maybe I'm suffering from confirmation bias but that was great. I was totally against gold a la WB until I found RV and especially Grant a couple of years ago. Thank you for changing my mind.
