Reckless Money Creation Is the Main Reason Many People Own Gold

Many reasons are given for wealth preservation through physical gold. We have talked at length about inflation, government debt, and a bubble in stock and bond markets. The mother of all bubbles has now been inflated to obscene levels because of abnormally low interest rates for an extended period, even negative rates in some instances, […]

Governments have Nationalized (Stolen) Retirement Accounts

We have talked about the debt here in America many times. Do you know the last US President to decrease the national debt while in office? Calvin Coolidge was the last President to decrease the national debt while in office in 1929. President Reagan took office in the early 80s and the national debt stood […]

Absolute Reasons to Own Gold

The Fed has controlled the money since 1971. In 1971 the US dollar was taken completely off the gold standard and became complete fiat. Alan Greenspan came to the rescue in 1987 as the 13th Fed chairperson. As everyone knows by now, we have to say chairperson, not chairman. When a female Fed chair is […]

The Inevitable Demise of the Paper Dollar

Since the consumer price index was first used in 1919 as a key measure of inflation, it has been modified at least 18 times.

The Numbers on Why You Should Own Gold

Gold is a store of value. It holds your purchasing power when paper fiat money does not. Remember in 1971 the US dollar was taken off of the gold standard. Since that time and the “temporary” move, our money is backed by nothing but a promise. It was a promise by the government to pay […]

As the Markets Lose Trillions, Gold Is Holding Its Own

Everyone can see the markets have been melting down this year dramatically. Investors are panicking as paper markets lose steam every week. Those big gains from the last few years in bonds, cryptocurrencies, and stocks are gone. As the markets are giving the signs that a crash is looming, gold has held its own. The […]

Our US Dollar is a Devalued Fiat Currency that is Failing

In 1933, the United States devalued our dollar by approximately 40%. The government redefined our dollar from being backed by about a 1/20th of an ounce of gold to only a 1/35th of an ounce of gold. In 1971 President Richard Nixon devalued the dollar again by completely taking it off the gold standard “temporarily”. […]
