The way forward:

A practical roadmap to reclaiming individual and financial sovereignty – Part I of II

Those who are familiar with my ideas and my writings undoubtedly know that one the issues I’m most passionate about is individual freedom, on all levels. I believe that free-thinking people know what’s best of them and they need no “guardians”, no “nannies” and certainly no bailiffs and enforcers, to limit or to dictate their choices “for their own good”. As long as those choices cause no harm or damage to nobody else and they violate no property that isn’t theirs, all that should govern the individual’s choices is their own conscience.

A Chinese Spark for 2023

by Craig Hemke, Sprott Money:

The year 2023 is shaping up to be quite fun and interesting for precious metal investors after a year that was anything but. And now the potential of a China “re-open” makes the picture even more compelling.

Let’s begin with the latest chart of Mar23 COMEX silver. We’ve been watching price trace out a bottom for months, and after leading gold and the mining shares lower for much of the year, silver has recently been showing the way out.

Ghana in Talks With Dubai Oil Refiner to Barter Gold for Fuel

by Ekow Dontoh and Moses Mozart Dzawu, Bloomberg:

Ghana spends about $4.8 billion annually to buy fuel
West African nation’s reserves have fallen 38% to $6.7 billion

Ghana is in talks with Emirates National Oil Co. for a barter arrangement that will enable the West African nation to buy fuel with gold.

The government reached a “tentative” agreement with the Dubai-based oil firm, said Kabiru Mahama, an economic adviser to Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia. Ghana, Africa’s second-largest gold producer, last week ordered large mining companies to sell 20% of the metal they refine to the central bank from Jan. 1 as it builds up reserves of bullion to be used to import fuel and reduce demand for dollars after its currency plunged 57% this year.

A GENERATIONAL OPPORTUNITY IN GOLD & SILVER — Bryan Slusarchuk

China thought to be stockpiling gold to cut greenback dependence

by Munemasa Horio, Asia NIKKEI:

TOKYO — Central banks are snapping up gold this year, but it is uncertain which ones are behind most of that shopping spree, fueling speculation that China is a big player.

Seeing how Russia has been hit by monetary sanctions by the West, China and some other countries must be hurrying to reduce dependence on the dollar, analysts reckon.

Central banks bought a net 399.3 tonnes of gold in the July-September period, more than quadrupling on the year, according to the November report by industry group the World Gold Council. The latest amount marks a steep jump from 186 tonnes in the preceding quarter and 87.7 tonnes in the first quarter, while the year-to-date total alone surpasses any full year since 1967.
