The following charts are provided by the St. Louis Federal Reserve Bank and are automatically updated as the Federal Reserve and the federal government make various statistics public.

They provide an opportunity to regularly monitor important statistical developments. As they are chosen from an immense supply of economic data, they isolate areas of particular interest to the gold owner, i.e. the national debt, money supply, inflation and unemployment numbers, securities held outright by the Federal Reserve, foreign-held debt, adjusted monetary base, etc.

A quick review of the charts as they stand at the moment reveals a brave new world of government finance and central banking. An array of disturbing trends which buttress the principle argument for gold ownership, as a means to insuring one’s assets.
