Bangladesh Buys Gold

The 220 kg Gold brick displayed in Taiwan


The relatively impoverished nation of Bangladesh, a country which had a per capita GDP in 2009 of only $654, just purchased gold from the IMF:

Bangladesh has became the latest nation to increase its official reserves of gold, buying 10 tonnes of bullion – worth about $400m – from the International Monetary Fund…It followed similar buying by India and Sri Lanka…

Analysts said that Russia and the Philippines had bought large amounts of gold this year from local miners, boosting their officials reserves. In the past two years, China and Saudi Arabia have also reported large increases in their official bullion holding…(Blas J.  Financial Times, September 10 2010.

The non-Western nations of the world are getting more and more concerned about the stability of paper money and several have been buying gold.

And while the amount of gold that Bangladesh purchased was not high by international standards, the fact that it did buy it suggests that it, like many other nations, has long-term concerns about currencies like the USA dollar.

And while the Bible is clear that gold will be worthless for a time, it is also clear that it will have value into the Great Tribulation (Daniel 11:40-43; Revelation 18)–which means it will have value longer than the USA dollar will.  Now this does not mean that gold could not drop in price relative to the USA dollar, as there will be ups and downs.  But it does mean that the more nations that decide they value gold, the less likely they are to value the USA dollar.

The world is slowly taking steps to try to reduce some of its exposure to the USA dollar.  Even including nations like Bangladesh.
