Dette var virkelig en unik nyhet som jeg ikke oppdaget selv, men fikk linken fra en kolega jeg fikk intressert i økonomi for 4 år siden. Morsomt at han fortsatt leser økonomi nyheter, da fikk jeg snudd en til den riktige siden av økonomien. Hipp hipp hurra! En gledens dag!
Nå hva er nyheten? Jo den er at Texas skal hente gullet sitt tilbake.
"On Friday, Texas Governor Greg Abbott approved a law creating the Texas Bullion Depository – the first state-level precious metals depository in the United States. The bill also calls for Texas to repatriate $1 billion of gold from the New York Federal Reserve back into the state. The law will go into effect immediately, though it is still unknown exactly where and when the Depository will be built."
Det er morsomt å se Texas være først ut med å skrive en slik lov!
Videre skriver de:
In passing this law, Texas joins the ranks of major global economies that want to bring their gold home from New York. Germany, Austria, the Netherlands, and other European nations have already begun to repatriate gold from the New York Fed or have proposed to begin doing so.
Det virker som Texas er ganske seriøse når det gjelder dette og sier til the FED show me the GOLD!
Anyways la meg bare avslutte artikkelen med å qoute resten av det de skriver eller så kan du lese nyheten her: link
However, the bill goes beyond that by laying the groundwork for transactions to occur in gold and silver. The bill includes the following language:
a depository account holder may transfer any portion of the balance of the holder’s depository account by check, draft, or digital electronic instruction to another depository account holder or to a person who at the time the transfer is initiated is not a depository account holder.”
That last clause is key — account holders in the Texas Bullion Depository may eventually be able to cut checks or even use debit cards to draw funds directly from their physical gold holdings.
The Tenth Amendment Center wrote an excellent article exploring the long-term repercussions of Texas’ historic law:In short, a person will be able to deposit gold or silver – and pay other people through electronic means or checks – in sound money. Doing so has the potential to open the market to sounds money in day-to-day transactions.
By making gold and silver available for regular, daily transactions by the general public, the new law has the potential for wide-reaching effect. Professor William Greene is an expert on constitutional tender and said in a paper for the Mises Institute that when people in multiple states actually start using gold and silver instead of Federal Reserve Notes, it would effectively nullify the Federal Reserve and end the federal government’s monopoly on money.”
