Economic and precious metals analyst Marshall Swing appears on this week’s Real Politik to discuss his prediction that the world’s wealthiest families controlling the world’s central banking infrastructure will crash financial markets on or around October 23, 2015. They will do so, Swing argues, in order to usher in a new world economic system and single gold-backed global currency.


He outlines his prediction and analysis specifically focusing on a January 2015 cover of The Economist magazine in his most recent article, “The Elites 2015 Global Economic Collapse Explained,” presented in the accompanying video below.

In keeping with the theme established in Sterling and Peggy Seagraves’ well-known book Gold Warriors, Swing maintains there’s a strong likelihood that the United States in fact has over 170,000 tonnes of gold and will thus play a leading role in determining the new world currency system.

Swing called the market peak for silver in spring 2011. He incurred the suspicion and wrath of contrarian thinkers and precious metal investors shortly thereafter when he employed his market analysis to predict silver will drop to $15 or less per ounce. In the fall of 2014 silver in fact reached $15 and in August 2015 it dipped below $14.

Swing is a regular contributor to His work has also been featured by fellow market analysts and commentators Max Keiser and Eric Sprott. Additional information is available at Marshall Swing’s websites, and


Extended interview with visuals:

The following are additional questions posed to Swing shortly after our discussion that are not included in the interview.

1. In the event that gold is confiscated to back the new world currency, what will happen to silver, which as you know is a partial industrial metal? Will gold confiscation contribute
to silver’s allure as an asset?

My guess is they shut down all metal speculation completely, no more metals markets. Once the crash happens all markets are closed indefinitely and can only reopen after a lot of issues are sorted out but before they open the new world currency can begin and distribution of banking cards in a cashless society based on gold (and possibly silver) backed hard asset currency. In doing so, they gain control over all the resources of all the countries as far as volatile price speculation which they would make the enemy.

2. Along these lines, do you have any thoughts on alternative currencies such as Bitcoin? Do you foresee these being outlawed or operating parallel the global currency?

Alternative currencies are dead once and for all as they go against their control. They will even attempt to clamp down on bartering. We see hints of bartering in the prophecies during the time frame.

3. Do you perceive partaking in the cashless society by way of having an account funded with and transacting in the new one world currency tantamount to receiving “the mark of the beast”?

A banking card cashless society is not the “mark of the beast” as there is nothing in taking and using the card that controls the individual and forces him into a “worship of the beast” scenario. MANY MANY people in churches are going to incorrectly think this is the mark of the beast and we will much desperation for a while i think until someone can bring them to their senses.

My study of the prophecies have revealed exactly what the mark of the beast is and how it comes about but I am not saying publicly at this time but may soon, only to a couple of close friends as yet. I did prophecy conferences in the Philippines where I explained exactly what and why this happens but have not released the information elsewhere, although I have alluded to in on social media no one has guessed it correctly. It is written very plainly in Revelation 12, if one is able to see it but for whatever reason I believe God continues to keep it virtually secret.

  1. Professor Tracy cuts to the core when he asks Swing,

    “If that’s the case, if cash is going to be something that’s outlawed, how will intelligence agencies and the like be able to continue with their illicit drug trading?”

    The guy is flummoxed. Never considered the question.

    1. Maybe drugs will be nationalized along with the coal mines. Then they will legalize everything. As for cartel members, they will be dealt with like the yellow truck in “Clear and Present Danger”. POOF!

  2. Great !!! Another “financial advisor” using Biblical scriptures to sell his opinion of the Bible.. And according to the last paragraph of his answer to James, the good folks in the Philippines now knows the truth;

    But the rest of us dumb Yanks, and the world are playing a guessing game if we have social media (which I don`t) with what Mr. Swing alluded too. I find these folks and their predictions hilarious.. and the enigma behind their concepts perplexing.

    So if I wanted to save myself and relatives, friends from the upcoming ” economic meltdown” do I hold on to my gold or pay a visit to the local “Cash for Gold” establishments. Or even better, why don’t I maxed out my credit card at my neighborhood`s ” Jacob the Jeweler” and make him a very happy man.

    Ooh Rah !!! I can`t wait until October 23th 2015..

  3. Haha

    “So if I wanted to save myself and relatives, friends from the upcoming ” economic meltdown” do I hold on to my gold or pay a visit to the local “Cash for Gold” establishments. ”


    Answer: Just Mail it in and get screwed like my daughter did.

    I pondered this.

    Impossible is my conclusion for would All the people holding “Paper” Gold/401k’s get burned? Would the paper dollar become useless in the EU and elsewhere?

    Why would anyone “Trust” us to become the “new” money When we we just screwed them?

    I’m french frying on predictions after the September debacle.

    1. Yeah… Ric ! I know, I have a wicked sense of humor in the face of promoted delusional idea.
      What even more funny is that I subscribe to The Economist, and I remember getting that edition and thinking to myself, what “predicted programming” BS are they trying to sell now.

  4. The money system crashed big time in 1965, when dimes, quarters halves and dollars had the silver content removed from them to be replaced with cheaper metals.

    An ounce of silver was worth basically the same between the coinage act of 1793 and 1964, save for the numismatic value of the coins. My grandfather used to go to the local bank bank in the early sixties and purchase a roll of 20 uncirculated morgan dollars for about $25.00. That is a bargain considering they now sell for over $100 each in mint state.

    That is why a loaf of bread ranged anywhere from 1 cent to 10 cents during that 172 year span. Times were much better back then!

    1. You got it John,

      The Avg. Yoho has no clue these thieves even went so far as to Steal the Copper out of a PENNY!

      Pathetic, making coins as worthless as a paper dollar.

      And they cry:

      But this is America, our Govt. would never do that……. They Did.

      How’s 911 working out for you……

      1. Bingo Rick. Three seldom talked about money crashing events, tied to the economy within a 18 year period!

        1964: Last year for silver in currency.
        1971: The gold standard was replaced with the petro dollar.
        1982: Copper removed from pennies and nickel removed from 5 cent pieces.

      2. And Just another thought. Talibama is street thug from Chicago.

        If we owe 20 Trillions dollars to who?

        Why can’t we just use the CIA to find who exactly we owe this money to and take ‘m out Chicago Style and balance the Budget?

        I’m confused….

        1. Ric, it’s all digital money and eventually it will have zero value. Therefore, the debt is bogus, since it is backed by nothing but faith and credit!

        2. We need to get a Class Action Suit against the Banks,

          They Refuse to “Raise” my debt limit.

          I even told them ” I still have checks left” and they hung up on me…

          Arrogance ….

        3. Because the CIA draws their paychecks from the IMF.

          The FCC, CIA, FBI, NASA and all of the other alphabet gangs were never part of the United States government. Even though the “US Government” held shares of stock in the various Agencies. (U.S. V. Strang , 254 US 491, Lewis v. US, 680 F.2d, 1239)

          The IRS is not a U.S. Government Agency. It is an Agency of the IMF. 1. The IRS is not a U.S. Government Agency. It is an Agency of the IMF. (Diversified Metal Products v. IRS et al. CV-93-405E-EJE U.S.D.C.D.I., Public Law 94-564, Senate Report 94-1148 pg. 5967, Reorganization Plan No. 26, Public Law 102-391.)

          The UN has financed the operations of the United States government for over 50 years and now owns every man, women and child in America. The UN also holds all of the Land in America in Fee Simple.

          The United States does not have any employees because there is no longer a United States. No more reorganizations. After over 200 years of operating under bankruptcy its finally over. (Executive Order 12803) Do not personate one of the creditors or share holders or you will go to Prison.18 U.S.C. 914

        4. Dub,

          Great you brought up Executive Order 12803.

          One of the best kept dirty secrets that has sat dormant, unchallenged since 1992.

          America can be sold to anyone without the consent of the People.

  5. Does anyone have the link for the article, mentioned by Strong and Tracy, written by an editor for the Economist discussing the cover? It would be helpful to my exegesis of Strong’s analysis, and I can’t find it.

    Nice use of graphics in the video, by the way. More of that!

        1. supn = sumpin’ = something

          so it’s supn like sumpin’ in the oven, or he’s really supn, aint he?

          Or if you’re trolling somebody, “Sumpin’ wrong? Hmmm?”

  6. Yeah it is not looking good.

    Multiple Employees Injured In Washington State Priest Rapids Dam Explosion – Above Wanapum Dam Which Has 60 Foot Crack Already-Wanapum Sits Above Hanford Nuclear Site Where 53 Million Gallons Of Plutonium Water Has Leaked For Sometime And All Of This Just East Of Mt Rainier One Of The Largest Strato-Volcanoes On Earth

    I don’t know what to say, I noticed an article concerning a dam explosion injuring multiple workers at the Priest Rapids dam in Washington State. Naturally being a pessimist, I thought maybe this just happens to be above the Hanford nuclear waste site. Well imagine my chagrin when I found that is exactly where is. Now that may not seem important however not only is the Priest Rapids dam above the Hanford nuclear site, it is up river from the Wanapum dam which has a 61 foot crack in it. Something I posted about over a year ago.

    Now why is that important? Well that is because Hanford is home to 53 million gallons of plutonium waste water stored in tanks that have been leaking for sometime. Estimates put the cleanup at somewhere around 400 billion dollars. Even the rabbit pellets in the area are super radioactive and this waste water has been killing pacific clams, poisoning the ground water throughout the area for sometime. It appears the Cascade mountains were aptly named.

    To complicate matters, the Washington State area is know for a series of active volcanoes. The largest of which would be Mount Rainier, then of Course Mount Baker, and others. This seems to be too incredible to be true, but it is true.

  7. My comments are pretty tame compared to some that seem to incite debates. Dont understand why I am being censored by world press the last few times I commented. I am close to writing off the site like I did my local paper who disappeared the comments section altogether. When comments gets sensored… my interest level drops like the world trade center…. at near free fall speed.

      1. Well Toni,
        He did get something right. He said tomorrow on the 24th O’Taliban would get “Full Power (dictatorship?)”.

        The only problem is he already did Jan. 20th 2009…..Haha
