What’s Going on?
In 1928, construction of the Chrysler building in NYC began. It was the first-ever skyscraper that would crush the then unimaginable 300-meter height. It was, therefore, the first “Supertall” tower and it stands to present day.
There are, of course, buildings much older than that.
Some 347 years ago, at a height of 111 meters, the St. Paul’s Cathedral was built and it is a magnificent and beautiful architectural piece and the Great Pyramid of Giza, which has shrunk to 139 meters today, is 4,500 years old.
Will these structures or our modern-day skyscrapers ever fall apart? Do they have a shelf-life?
Only two things impact the answer to that question, which are the strength of the materials and the elements (wind, rains, earthquakes) that prevail in the region.
Most buildings are comprised of concrete, reinforcing steel and structural steel, but the amounts used and the quality of the materials vary.
For example, the Empire State Building, which is half of the size of the Burj Khalifah is DOUBLE its weight.
Nowhere in the world can we see what would happen to buildings, if they’re constructed quickly, with population explosion in mind and immediate housing solution, not with longevity at heart than in China’s Shenzhen city.
This city had 30,000 residents in the 1980’s and grew to more than 10,000,000 today, so the rush to build up and build fast, was enormous.

Today, many buildings are either demolished, only 20-30 years, after initially erected, or going through a phase of regeneration.
Ultimately, most places now build skyscrapers, designed for eternity, assuming the owners spends the necessary upkeep costs to regularly replace beams, pipes, gauges and anything that needs to be modernized, all of which can happen, without interrupting the tenants.
The conclusion is that with the same materials, one can create a structure that will last for the ages, while another can start seeing decay within one generation.
Gold is one of the most durable materials in nature. It has served as jewelry and as money for thousands of years and is the great equalizer that brings an international world into the fold.
After WW2, it was gold that the economists at Bretton-Woods proposed would be the bedrock of the new monetary system.
Today, our world is again fragmented to regions, into blocs and for the first time in many years, it’s visible that something is wrong, that the system is not functioning right for most people, as a recent survey said more Americans are suffering than ever before.

Many believe that, as the Federal Reserve and its global counterparts, like the European Central Bank and the Bank of England, are raising rates, gold and silver become irrelevant, but they’re missing two critical components of the equation, just as the Chinese developers in Shenzhen didn’t foresee that they’ll have to deal with so many issues, down the road.
In Shenzhen, expediency was key, not quality.
The same thinking dictates today’s monetary policy; central banks are panicked, crushing gold and silver prices, but the fact remains that EVEN AFTER all the hikes, rates will remain negative, in real terms!
Once the markets truly realize that, it would be fiat currencies that will be in a structural damage, not the eternal precious metals.
