Steadily increasing interest payments will force a "crisis of confidence" in the dollar, a trend that is likely to support rising Gold Prices.

"The question is will there be a crisis of confidence in all paper monies and what will the reaction of investors be?" he questioned.
"I would imagine that when the crisis really emerges, you'd see people flee from all paper currencies into precious metals."
