The history of money is so important that an understanding of history is not complete without an understanding of the history of money, yet public education fails to shine light on such a key subject. The history of currency and the history of money are not the same thing. The history of currencies tells us that all fiat paper currencies eventually fail and return to their intrinsic value to society as paper. Likewise, the history of money tells us that gold and silver always return to their intrinsic value to society as a store of value as natural real money. Through many civilizations, eras, kingdoms and empires, the people of the world have constantly seen gold and silver revalue itself against fiat currencies.
The smart investor invests in cycles following patterns that are predictable. Human nature is such a pattern, as is the tendency for governments to try to print themselves out of debt when in serious debt. The result is always the same- massive inflation. It's like a person trying to sober up by drinking more. It happened in Rome, it happened in China many times, it happened in Germany more than once in the last century, and it is happening here and now. In order to bailout banks and other failing institutions that should otherwise fail and have real competition increase the effectiveness of such institutions, what is effectively our central bank and issuer of money (though it is really privately owned and cares not for the recipients of that "money") must use money.
Where does that money come from?
Energy is not created nor destroyed, only transferred. This is the same case with wealth. The banks cannot create wealth, they can only transfer it to pay off these enormous debts and liabilities. Where does that transfer of wealth come from? YOU. Printing money in order to pay for its own debts is obviously irresponsible but to hide it from the taxpayers through "bailouts" and "quantitative easing" is theft. It is another form of taxation. You get taxed before you get your money, you get taxed when you spend your money, then you find out your money is worth less in real purchasing power.
So in order to repay debts to these private owned banks, all over the world, and I would say most of the countries in the world are seriously in debt to these banks with no real plan to pay it off other than to sell the property, time, and future of their citizens through debt slavery- these countries print more money and get into more debt to keep the whole thing from being revealed for what it is, a global ponzi scheme designed to rob wealth from the masses of people and into the hands of a select few who work together secretly to accomplish it.
The scheme works through the promoted belief that the paper money everyone uses has actual value, when its actual value is little more than (or arguably less than) the paper it is printed on. The banks control the entire world through this scheme. It's truly amazing!
It's too bad though (aw..), because people are waking up and seeing it for what it is. People are sick and tired of seeing their and their children's wealth being robbed. They are tired of working day after day, year after year for a paycheck that doesn't get bigger while prices at the grocery store, gas station, movie theatre, restaurant and everything else gets higher. They are tired of getting taxed on their decreasing purchasing power before they even get the fake paper money representatives in their hands. They are tired of getting taxed again when they spend it. They are tired of all the rules and regulations in a supposed "free country" and "free market". People all of the world are waking up and want a return to sound money with real value that cannot be inflated and deflated at will by a central power.
People are waking up and this time when the pendulum swings, the revaluation of gold and silver will be something the likes of which we have never witnessed before in the history of this planet.
Never ever before have ALL the major currencies in existence be fiat currencies backed by nothing but a promise and confidence in a what is now a clearly failing system. Never before have we seen 7 billion people on a planet with this amount of new goods, products, technology, real estate, and services. The money in existence has to account for all of that stuff, and the new money that emerges through the cloud and dust will be what it always has been - gold and silver. Unless something else comes up that fits all the necessary conditions for sound currency AND sound money, gold and silver is it! The people have voted consistently for over 5,000 years that their choice for real money is gold and silver. There are no signs that this time they won't vote that way again.
What does this mean for you? This means that wealth in terms of the available real estate, goods and services will be a transferred to the owners of precious metals once this cycle completes its turn (and starts over again) and that precious metal owner SHOULD BE YOU.
At Silver2Me we are dedicated to spreading the word about the upcoming shift of purchasing power to as many of the public as we can. We do not want the powers that be to be the only ones holding gold and silver at the end. These are the same people that will enslave you and actively seek to do so every chance they get. We want as many private investors to hold silver and gold as possible, so spread the wealth to the people where it belongs- away from governments and banks who are simply legal criminals because they write the laws for themselves.
We too want to see a return to a precious metal backed currency and a free market. To accomplish this we will spread this information about the history of money, the history of currency manipulation, the history of governments and banking and how this is relevant to us today and in the future, how we can profit from it and how we can help transfer wealth and power back to the people.
The smart investor knows about and invests with timing through understanding in cycles. The patterns are clear when you watch the cycles of fiat currency and the cycles of silver and gold, and see each time fiat currency reaches its peak value when gold and silver are at its trough, and each time fiat currency reaches its lowest value when gold and silver are at its peak. The smart investor should hold fiat until gold and silver are the most undervalued, and buy gold and silver. And when gold and silver are overvalued, buy something else undervalued, be it some fiat currency, real estate, stocks, commodities, and then when that becomes overvalued again, buy something else undervalued. If you hold one thing all the way you will see it rise and drop and rise and drop. The key is to understand the markets, what influences them and get in and out at the right times.
Currently, gold and silver are undervalued, fiat currencies and real estate and stocks are overvalued. This means one should get out of the latter three and into gold and silver, riding the wave up until gold and silver reach their peak and something else is at its bottom. In this case it will likely be real estate and stocks. At that time you sell your gold and silver and buy real estate and whatever else is undervalued (perhaps some small businesses that due to the economy were slow but now the economy is recovering and will start to grow and do well, for example) and ride that wave up. Pay attention to the market, for it will give you clues.
The point is, study investment cycles and invest on the right side by timing your entry and exit. This is how massive wealth is built and also how massive wealth is lost.
