KWN weekly – September 25, 2014
“Greyerz: “Eric, this year we have been talking about the autumn being a critical time in terms of being an inflection point for the world economy and global markets.

The Swiss Gold Initiative (SGI):
We recently started to create some market awareness about the Swiss referendum taking place on November 30, 2014. This is a potentially high impact event. Also read the KWN interview of Sept 18.
The people of Switzerland will be voting on the following proposal:
1. No further Gold sales by the SNB!
2. All Swiss Gold stored in Switzerland!

If the vote is ‘Yes’, this will be come law and Switzerland needs to comply within about 2 years.
Anyone in the wealth preservation space should follow this event closely and in the coming weeks we will regularly publish more interesting data about the Swiss Gold Initiative and the Referendum on 30 Nov.
