Sinclair: Gold Confiscation Not A Possibility

Emphasis added by me:

There may be more to gain by a significant price of gold in the new reserve currency. There is no reason except some sort of fear of revenge to consider confiscation of gold, gold shares or the gold ETFs now. Those that worry so much about this do not really understand what gold was under a gold standard.

Why was energy not confiscated at $145 crude? Why not confiscate Apple at $750? Confiscation is NOT going to occur, nor will the gold bullion or gold share profits be confiscated via punitive taxation. It serves no monetary purpose and just might injure the efforts for a new reserve currency that is sure to come.

I beleive the bolded part is a direct reference to the Basel III rules.

I can't say that I would trust the bank to hold anything, 100ft of water weighs a lot more than a vault door, but Jim's reasoning seems reasonable. I'm much more worried about them confiscating retirement accounts by hook (flat out nationalization) or by crook (increasing the taxes on them). There is a ton of money in the 401ks and IRAs and they don't need to open any vaults to get at it. They could be gone when we wake up tomorrow.
