When it comes down to it, gold has served as a measurement for how healthy the U.S. economy is ever since we went off the gold standard under FDRs presidency in 1933. When the economy and U.S. dollar are rallying, gold sinks. When the economy and U.S. dollar plummet, gold goes on a tear. All the talk lately about a healthy economy on the rise, unemployment being down, and even the dollar rally in 2014 are either false or completely mask the truth: America is a deeply indebted country with so many unfunded obligations, resulting in a nation on the verge of economic collapse. But there are other developments in gold going on behind the scenes that the U.S. government has kept very well hidden.
