``Within 2014 the State Council aims to implement a new deposit insurance system for its banks. While one might think this is meant to lower systemic risk, it's actually meant as a step to shift risk from te government to its citizens. Handing the people the opportunity to be more responsible for their own financial health, introducing more laissez-faire... we should be on the watch for signs that banks themselves are encouraged to hold gold as hedge against financial risks: for this hedge to be effective, the value of gold must rise by a large magnitude to make up for any such systemic losses''
