They are coming for your gold Well at least that's what I hear [Music] In 1933 Franklin Roosevelt forbade the Hoarding of gold coins bullion and gold Certificates anywhere in the continental U.S that was executive order 6102 and that limited gold ownership Here for 41 years until it was repealed By Gerald Ford in 1974. in nearly 50 Years later we're hearing people on YouTube and Reddit telling us that once Again They might be coming for your gold The spoiler alert here is that I just Don't agree I'm going to tell you why in 1933 the United States was in the midst Of the Great Depression this was nearly Four years after the 1929 market crash That led to wide-scale bank closures now You don't have to be especially creative To draw corollaries between conditions Today and the 1929 crash that set things Off but even if things were the same There's one major difference here The United States no longer operates on A gold standard the reason that that's Important is not that the U.S has no Need for gold or no future potential for It to be used in trade even it's simply That the United States Federal Reserve No longer requires 40 gold backing for Issued Reserve notes in other words the FED doesn't need the gold reserves to
