Identifying individuals who are smitten by precious metals is not a difficult task. Not everyone with an affinity toward gold and silver is very outspoken about it, as can be seen in the example of Alasdair Macleod. 

Who is Alasdair Macleod?

In the financial world, there are many different individuals who have shown some sort of appreciation for the popular precious metals. Both gold and silver tend to maintain their value and even appreciate in price every now and then. It is a good hedge against global financial uncertainty and volatility. One of the individuals with plenty of experience in finance is Alsdair Macleod.

Throughout his early career, Macleod acted as a stockbroker on the London Stock Exchange. With a vast list of tasks to be completed and ample experience gained,  he started gravitating toward general economics, and later on, attempted to debunk macro-economic events. Even today, he remains convinced that unsound monetary policies utilized by central banks and governments remain the biggest threat to society.

In the modern era, Macleod is best known for educating the masses on how governments handle money and the potential consequences associated with this trend.Moreover, Macleod wants to inform people on how to protect themselves from the eventual fallout that will wreak havoc upon the global monetary system.

Alisdair Macleod on Silver

A recent article by Alisdair Macleod is attracting a lot of attention. It does not kick any shins, yet it highlights the potential of silver. Albeit this precious metal used to be a monetary standard in America and Britain, things have changed significantly as more time progressed. 

One also has to keep in mind how silver has been overshadowed by gold, both by investors and the monetary system. As the Silverites used to advocate for, they wanted to see silver become the new monetary standard. It appears that Macleod – at least in this article – is thinking along the same lines.

The big question is what the future will hold for silver and gold. Their internal ratio recently peaked at an all-time high for gold, but it has seen a significant retrace ever since. The year 2020 and beyond may prove to be a good “era” for these metals, as they can both be successful at the same time.

Finding interesting remarks of quotes by Alasdair Macleod is not overly difficult, as he is an active user of Twitter. Some of his recent remarks on the financial system certainly set the tone. Here is just one example of what he expects to happen in the near future:

In fact, Macleod is not a fan of how governments are handling the current situation, which is only to be expected. History has a habit of repeating itself, yet the involvement of governments and central banks should not be underestimated. 

When it comes to the ongoing correlation between gold and silver, Macleod has the following to offer:

That comment seems to indicate that some crucial shifts in these markets are likely to take place in the near future. What those changes will look like exactly, is up for debate as of right now.
