That's why his loose monetary policy has some U.S. states looking to get into the gold coin business.
As I'll explain later, it's why my Gold Double-Eagles are becoming even more valuable.
Because while the U.S. Constitution bans states from printing their own paper money, it does allow states to make "gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts."
Now no fewer than 13 states are seeking approval from their state legislatures, either to issue their own currency or to explore it as an option as the Fed's printing presses spin out of control.
So why is there this big rush by states to move into gold as an alternative currency?
It's simple really.
The Trouble with Fiat MoneyFiat money, created by central banks, possesses no intrinsic value. Paper money only works as long as governments don't create too much of it.
For pieces of paper to have value, we all have to believe there won't be too many of them and that the authority creating them has the preservation of their value as its top priority.
When that confidence vanishes, the fiat currency returns to being just paper - as it did famously in Weimar Germany in 1923. Or even more catastrophically in post-war Hungary, where the last stable symbol of value, the 1931 gold pengo, became worth 1.5 octillion 1946 paper pengos.
Of course, central banks do occasionally compete for foreign depositors by offering paper currencies with more stability.
In fact, before 2000, the U.S. dollar benefited from these flows that came from all over the world, including Europe.
Now, apart from the eccentrics who swear by the Japanese yen or the Chinese yuan, flight capital is largely confined to the Swiss Franc.
Since Switzerland is a small economy, the Swiss National Bank has drawn a hard line. It refuses to allow the franc to rise above 1.20 against the euro, so even that refuge has been made less attractive.
