Common Sense Investing
Gabe Elton | Austin Rare Coins & Bullion |
The last ten years will most likely be called “The Lost Decade”…. a decade where the once largest creditor nation in the world became the largest debtor
nation. Since 2002, U.S. Debt nearly tripled from 5.9 Trillion to 16.4 Trillion. Traditional investments like stocks and bonds faltered while tangible assets such as Gold and Silver soared.
There is no question that things are not what they seem. We have been introduced to new terms like “Quantitative Easing” and “Fiscal Cliff ”—massive social and economic issues. They have been temporarily remedied by simply increasing our debt limits when the credit lines are already maxed. Most business people understand this concept simply doesn’t make sense, however, we’re reassured everything is going to be fine.
Don’t forget what happened in 2008. Everything was alright, until confidence in the global monetary system disappeared. In May of 2008 the DOW was at 12,900 and ten months later had fallen in half. Before you had time to make up your mind, everything changed. Now, more than ever, it’s imperative to think ahead today and be proactive, rather than reactive.
The question remains: In a world with no rhyme or reason, increasing taxes, and a Government that spends to no end – how do you preserve and protect the wealth that YOU have worked so hard for? The fact is, precious metals like Gold and Silver have proven to be a safe harbor to protect investors from the financial hurricane known as the global economy.
Ten years ago the price of Gold was just $300 per ounce, 1/5 of its current price. Silver was $4.50 an ounce, 1/6th of its current price. The mega trends in Gold and Silver are undeniable. For the foreseeable future, as the debt continues to mount and the money printing continues, the fundamentals are only getting stronger. Yet, we’re supposed to be in a “Recovery Phase”?
Since when is out of control deficit spending, credit downgrades, and economic uncertainty a recovery? We don’t buy it, and you shouldn’t either.
In this report you will learn why Gold and Silver continue to be a safe haven in an uncertain world, how the United States has become an Empire of Debt, and how Washington has no plan to get us back on track.
Inside Information: Hot Stock Tip
Our analysts have located two stocks that show unbridled opportunity. Unlike most, these corporations have zero debt and zero counter-party risk. Better still, these companies are the oldest on the exchange, in fact, they were around before the exchanges even existed.
Their reach is global and their roots can be traced back thousands of years across many different cultures. These companies have developed such a brand that all one has to do is show it to someone and regardless of where you are in the world it will be recognized and most likely accepted as trade.
Not only do these companies have global reach, zero debt or any counter-party risks, but they have also proven to be explosive gainers for the few who own them. In fact, when compared to the rest of the markets, these small cap companies have handily outperformed the gains in the stock market for 12 years in a row!
If you haven’t figured it out yet, the stocks that we are referring to are stockpiles of physical Gold and Silver. Physical Gold has quintupled in price over the last decade, yet, most financial advisors have not advised their clients to own it. Gold and Silver have zero debt, zero counter party risk and the highest levels of privacy and liquidity found today.
Currently, less than 1% of all institutional money around the globe is allocated to Precious Metals. When conventional wisdom turns, and 1% turns to 2% or 3%, the prices will certainly be higher than today, due to short supplies of physical metal.
Central Banks around the world are already adding to their positions and billionaires like John Paulson and George Soros have recently upped their positions in the yellow metal.
If the United States Government Were a Family – A Lesson In Numbers
The numbers used by our politicians today are mind-numbing. To hear the words billion and trillion being tossed around on a daily basis has us impervious to what these numbers really mean.
Perhaps this is the reason for our current course: many of us simply can’t comprehend what a trillion dollars actually is. Recently some have compared the budget of the United States to the budget of a family household. The numbers below are real numbers with several zero’s taken off to make them smaller, more simplistic, and easier to understand. The actual data is the exact equivalent to the recent fiscal cliff deal passed by the Congress.
If the U.S. Government were a Family
Annual Income: $58,000/year
Credit Card Debt: $327,000
Proposed Cuts: $3,000/year
Revised Expenses: $72,000/year
Keep in mind, the U.S. government still has $327,000 in credit card debt, and don’t forget the interest. In fact, by February of this year, Congress will have hearings not to figure out how to reduce that credit card debt, but to find out who will be calling their credit card company to see if their limit can be raised.
The $3,000 in spending cuts that Congress spent day and night arguing over during the Christmas and New Year holidays is a drop in the bucket compared to our deficit. This is no way to run a family and it is certainly no way to run a government.
Common sense alone tells you that this experiment in loose monetary policy can’t go well. History has proven time and time again that you can not print your way to prosperity. Every single case of hyper-inflation was preceded by government deficits getting out of control!
Who Owns OUR Debt?
One of the scariest facts regarding this debt laden economy is who actually owns the debt. In a normal world, the U.S. Treasury must first sell an amount of bonds equivalent to the value of the money to be printed. In order to circumvent the very framework of our monetary system, the Federal Reserve is now buying the bonds of the United States in order to finance their money printing schemes otherwise known as quantitative easing. We are buying our debt in order to print more money. It’s bad enough that Communist China is one of the largest holders of U.S. bonds in the world. Even worse, having the Federal Reserve be the largest holder of bonds issued by our own Treasury is economic suicide. Foreigners know this, and that is why they have stopped buying our bonds.
Where to Go from Here?
How did we end up in this twilight zone? Simple: by re-electing those who go us into this mess in the first place. The same politicians who caused this disaster are the ones who claim they can get us out of it, and overall, as a country the voting public has taken the bait – hook, line, and sinker.
In fact, the American public re-elected 21 of 22 incumbent senators and 353 of 373 incumbent members of the house. Overall, the American people have re-elected 94% of the incumbents who were running for office. The same incumbents who thought that bailing out big business and big banks at the expense of the American taxpayer was a good idea, are the same ones running the show today making policy and economic decisions that will affect our country for years to come.
The simple fact of the matter is that these major socioeconomic issues are not being addressed in order to fix the real problem: our massive, growing debt!
Take Action Now, Use Common Sense
The last decade was the dawn of a new era. Central economic planning was chosen over free markets. The United States of America, once the largest creditor nation in the world, had its credit rating downgraded, and Government debt nearly tripled. Sadly, the same folks who got us into this mess are still running the show and there doesn’t seem to be any light at the end of the tunnel.
During an era when stocks have faltered and paper assets have become full of risk, Gold and Silver have continued to shine. This never ending accumulation of debt and an ever increasing budget deficit continue to be the catalyst that will drive precious metal prices well into the future.
Now is a perfect time to change the direction of your investment plan. If you don’t already own precious metals talk to your representative about holding physical Gold and Silver within an IRA that is protected from the paper world of stocks and bonds.
Whether you already own some Gold & Silver, consider adding more. If you are just getting started into the Precious Metals markets or you are a seasoned veteran, Austin Rare Coins and Bullion can help you develop a strategy of Gold & Silver holdings that can help you reach your goals. Let our team of experts help you protect the wealth that you have worked hard to earn.
