Netherlands was indeed the plan are ready to enter the golden again if the euro crisis had gone completely out of control.
''It is true that the Ministry of Finance and the then government have prepared themselves, even at the worst scenario, '' said Dijsselbloem. '' We were at the height of the euro crisis, which incidentally the Government, including the Dutch government, have always said, "we wanted to hold the euro zone and keep the euro as a single currency. Nevertheless, there is also looked at what if that does not work well, '' said Dijsselbloem.
'It is absolutely right and very sensible of the then government to openly speculate that, because it has a lot to do with confidence. If it were known that various governments should prepare for "this is going to fail, it falls apart", at the height of the crisis, create your absolute panic on financial markets and investors walk away in droves. That's the last thing you want, then you contribute to your defeat, '' said Dijsselbloem.
Dijsselbloem denies that the notes were all ready.
He emphasizes that we're in a different situation. '' The euro is a better bang for the banks are much stronger for, budgets are better off, now the growth we want. '' '' We are now far from the valley down. ''
It`s still 226 Euros per capita, and knowing how thrifty we Dutch are, we can live on it for years.

The Federal Reserve is the U.S central bank. The gold is being moved from one central bank to another. It will not make the U.S poorer and Holland richer. It is not anything to do with nations and collective wealth as such. The governments and the public neither own the gold or the money they use. It is all a private institution. It is a global financial, privately run network.
It is worth learning about the way economies work. Clears up any confusion.
I haven't made it all the way through the material yet but, I had to ask...
Anyone else notice the part about them doing it to "Give the Dutch Citizens confidence in the DNB to guide them (if needed) following a future major event"?
