Inflation Hedge

What is Gold? Gold is an Inflation Hedge and Insurance in a Debt Crisis

German Hyper-Inflation

Gold is true insurance against a crisis- an inflation hedge.Gold maintains its purchasing power when paper currencies fail. Gold protects those who own it from the sudden, unforeseen consequences of inflation, when paper currencies fail- its an inflation hedge. We've all heard the horror stories of Germany in the 1920's or Zimbabwe more recently; paper money lost value by the minute and prices were completely unpredictable. A loaf of bread today might be four times as expensive tomorrow. Gold maintains its purchasing power throughout time- a.k.a. gold is an inflation hedge! Gold cannot be printed by governments so its value cannot be watered down like paper currency which can be printed infinitely. People in Germany burned cash to stay warm because it was cheaper than buying firewood.

What is Gold? An Inflation Hedge, Protection Against Inflation Hyper Inflation

"The fate of the nation and the fate of the currency are one and the same."

~ Dr. Franz Pick

"In the absence of the gold standard, there is no way to protect savings from confiscation through inflation. There is no safe store of value."

~ Alan Greenspan

The U.S. Government is Broke and they're Killing the Dollar

Even if all American's were taxed at 100% of their income, it would not be enough to balance the U.S. Federal Budget and the U.S. Government would still have to borrow money to maintain itself: basic infrastructure, government salaries, social programs, military. America is Broke!

In 2008, bankrupt companies like AIG, Fanny Mae and Freddy Mac, GM, and Merryl Lynch had all of their bad debt swallowed up by the U.S. Government. The U.S. Government made the problems of those companies the problems of the U.S. tax payer - your problem.

These garbage companies have since recorded 100's of billions in losses and these losses have all been passed along to the U.S. Government - more debt.

Imagine if your neighbors all went broke and you decided to take on everybody's mortgage and credit card payments. Imagine, how long do you think you could keep it up?

"The dollar will be wiped out."

~ Dr. Franz Pick

But wait, you already had outstanding debts of your own. Eventually you wouldn't be able to pay even the interest on those debts. Bankruptcy would be inevitable right? For sure. This is the situation the U.S. Government is in. Except that instead of going broke, the U.S. Government has decided to kill the dollar instead. You need an Inflation Hedge!

They're Printing Your Dollar to Death - Your savings are disappearing

Dollar Debasement

There's an 'advantage' that the U.S. Government has which you do not, they can print money. They print it and use the freshly printed currency to pay their debts. Actually, they just type an amount of money onto a computer and whoosh, they've got some new money. The consequence is, the dollars in your wallet get diluted and they buy less. This is the route towards paralyzing inflation and a lower standard of living. Governments around the world have tried this many, many times and each time it fails and each time, the people suffer- unless they owned an inflation hedge gold.

"Gold would have value if for no other reason than that it enables a citizen to fashion his financial escape from the state."

~ William F. Rickenbacker

They're making enemies and those enemies will fight back

"Gold is not necessary. I have no interest in gold. We'll build a solid state, without an ounce of gold behind it. Anyone who sells above the set prices, let him be marched off to a concentration. That's the bastion of money."

~ Adolf Hitler

The U.S. Government is the only entity in the world which can legally print U.S. dollars.

The U.S. dollar is the world's 'reserve currency,' meaning it's the basis of the world's financial system and most goods are traded in U.S dollars and banks around the world hold U.S. dollars against their loans. So, the U.S. Government can't go broke like you or I, because the U.S. Government can just print more dollars and spend them.

This gives the U.S. Government an advantage over all other countries, because those countries have to convert their own currencies into dollars to buy things like oil or steel, or wheat, or corn…everything they need. So, if you're Russian or Japanese or Chinese or Brazilian, you have to first buy U.S. Dollars and then buy your oil.

"The gold standard sooner or later will return with the force and inevitability of natural law, for it is the money of freedom and honesty."

~ Hans F. Sennholz

So, as long as the U.S. Government prints and prints and prints, these other countries watch the value of the dollars they own diminish - their dollar savings are destroyed. Example: the Chinese own the most U.S. dollars in the world outside of the U.S.A. The price of copper has exploded in terms of dollars, therefore, the dollars the Chinese own buy them less copper than before. This is the case with all things like oil, wheat, cotton, sugar, tin, and anything else they need. This is making the Chinese and other counties very angry and they are starting to fight back. They've banned together with others to start pulling out of U.S. dollars to protect themselves from the failure of the dollar. They’re stampeding into the classic inflation hedge.

China and other major countries are starting to abandon the dollar. They want to be paid in something solid and reliable, an inflation hedge. They want to be paid in GOLD! Many countries and businesses are starting to refuse the dollar. Iran has already completely refused the dollar. They do not deal in dollars for oil any more. If this trend continues, and it will, as long as the U.S. Government keeps on printing away it's debts and weakening the value of dollars, then eventually all countries will refuse dollars and prices in America will explode!

The Consequence to You!

Rising Fuel Cost

If you hold your savings in U.S. dollars or you own stock priced in U.S. dollars, you are going to see your savings disappear. The paper will be there, but it will buy much, much less. Maybe nothing. Paper is not an inflation hedge. Imagine $7 to $10 a gallon for gasoline. Imagine $10 to $20 dollars for a loaf of bread. Or, imagine if no one will accept your dollars for payment for these goods at all. HSBC Bank now refuses deposits in dollars at all of their Mexican banks.

"In the absence of the gold standard, there is no way to protect savings from confiscation through inflation. There is no safe store of value."

~ Alan Greenspan

Currency exchange kiosks around the world are starting to refuse U.S. dollars. Even some American businesses are staring to refuse U.S. dollars in America and new regional currencies are springing up all around the country. Foreign currencies are being taken as payment in shops in Washington D.C. and New York. The IMF (International Monetary Fund, one of the world's most powerful organizations) recently wrote that they would like to replace the U.S. dollar as the world's reserve currency. They want to replace it with a Global Currency called the Bancor. This is very bad for Americans holding U.S. dollars as their savings. You need an inflation hedge! If the U.S. dollar is abandoned and you have U.S. dollar savings, there will be no way to fix this problem once it's too late. You will be screwed, left holding the bag, of worthless dollars. Nobody wants the U.S. dollar. Get out of it, it's doomed. Buy Gold! Tell your friends and family and protect yourself from this looming crisis.

Inflation Protection
"You have to choose [as a voter] between trusting to the natural stability of gold and the natural stability and intelligence of the members of the government. And with due respect to these gentlemen, I advise you, as long as the capitalist system lasts, to vote for gold."

~ George Bernard Shaw

Investing in Gold and Silver is an Inflation Hedge and will make you Richer

The dollar is being destroyed and the only way to protect yourself is to own gold and silver and stock in companies who mine gold and silver - they will rise to extraordinarily high prices as this crisis continues. They're an inflation hedge.

Let's look at what China is doing to protect itself from a U.S. dollar collapse - remember, they own the most U.S. dollars in the world. China is selling dollars and buying gold and silver. China is the world's largest gold producer, the second largest silver producer, the largest gold smelter and the largest silver smelter. These are facts, but I also believe that one day China will back their currency, the Yuan, in gold and silver, and they will have the strongest currency in the world - like the U.S. dollar used to be. The Yuan could become an inflation hedge

Buy gold, silver and stocks in companies who mine gold and silver. Start now and you will be much richer in the future. Be smart and use gold and silver as an inflation hedge

How are you going to protect your savings? Don't be a deer caught in the headlights. Act now and become wealthier by owning Gold and Silver and Gold and Silver mining stocks!

"Deficit spending is simply a scheme for the 'hidden' confiscation of wealth. Gold stands in the way of this insidious process. It stands as a protector of property rights."

~ Alan Greenspan

What is gold? Gold in the hands of the people strikes fear in tyrants

Protection Against Tyrants

Gold puts real economic power in the hands of the people. A tyrant can't issue gold, he can't print it. People who hold it can trade it can trade it with one another to grow their wealth and thrive, in spite of tyrants. Gold can destroy centralized power and promote freedom. Don't let some tyrant like this, confiscate your gold.

"Civilized countries generally adopt gold or silver or both as money."

~ Alfred Marshall
