1.2The Broader Picture


In 2005 David Jensen wrote In Denial of Crisis: An Economy Undermined by Failures of the Monetary System, the Concentrated Media, and Political Will. It is almost a book, and is a context for the bulk of this document.1 To understand money better, and commodity money in particular, Murray Rothbard’s What Has Government Done to Our Money is unequaled. Note that although gold is the premier monetary metal, the International Standards Organization’s list of currency names and code elements (ISO 4217) lists palladium (XPD), platinum (XPT), silver (XAG) as well as gold (XAU). The platinum group elements (PGE), platinum, palladium, rhodium, ruthenium, iridium and osmium comprise the platinum group metals (PGM).
