Today James Turk told stunned King World News when he warned, “… the Federal Reserve is already insolvent.” Turk also stated, “Because of the intense leverage that the Federal Reserve employs, this means the mark-down on its $2.844 trillion of securities is, in reality, a staggering $57 billion loss.” Here is what Turk had to say in this extraordinary interview: “There was an interesting article in The Telegraph here in London over the weekend, Eric.

GoldMoney has released an interview with Chairman James Turk about his study of the above-ground global gold stock, gold’s role as money, and the coming fiat currency collapse.

But first, here is what Turk had to say about his last interview titled, “The Entire German Gold Hoard Is Gone,” which has received an incredible amount of attention around the world: “Yes, it’s getting increasing attention, Eric, and rightly so. There has been a lot of deception about how much gold is really in central bank vaults.
The reason why there is this deception, if you look at a balance sheet of a central bank like the Bundesbank, Bank of Italy or the Bank of England, they basically say gold in the vault and gold out on loan, they show it as one line item. They call it, ‘gold and gold receivables.’
