Good day everyone, I have asked many people the question “if you were being robbed would you rather give up your Money or your Currency?” I would give up my currency! These specific memes and mantras are in place to confuse and the protocols and procedures derived from them are practised until you only hear their language and descriptions of conditions and events. Money represents human labor and natural resources. Money is perceived to be the value of goods and services rendered. Be careful, never call currency money. Money is created through resources and labor, currency is the illusion of money. We print currency with ink on paper, to represent Money, you can’t print Money. Read on and watch the video. – Mike Stop calling currency money Your true wealth is your time and freedom. Money is just a tool for trading your time. It’s a container to store your economic energy until you’re ready to deploy it. But the whole world has been turned away from real money and has been fooled into using currency, – a deceitful impostor that is silently stealing your two most valuable assets. Your time and your freedom. Welcome to the rabbit hole. We are entering a period of financial crisis that is the greatest the world has ever known. The wealth transfer that will take place during this decade is the greatest wealth transfer in history. Wealth is never destroyed. It is merely transferred. And that means that on the opposite side of every crisis there is an opportunity. The great news is that all you have to do to turn this crisis into your great opportunity is to educate yourself. I believe that the best investment that you can make in your lifetime is your own education. Education on the history of money. Education on finance. Education on how the global economy works. Education on how all of these guys, the central bankers, the stock market, how they can cheat you. How they can scam you. If you learn what is going on and how the financial world works, you can put yourself on the correct side of this wealth transfer.

Uploaded by EconMilitia on Jul 28, 2009 httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vzkdK1wxYSU From Rush Limbaugh to Timothy Geithner to Glenn Beck to Barack Obama, everyone has something to say about the gold standard. To hear some of them tell it, the day we stopped using gold backed currency was the day our country began to die. If you think you know what gold backed currency is, you’re probably missing some details about the benefits and drawbacks of this economic policy. The gold standard is what we call representative money in economic circles. When Lyndon Johnson decided to bankrupt the country with his Great Society idea, he forced us to abandon the gold standard. Why? Because the amount of money he and his successors needed to fund the social programs far exceeded the gold we had on hand. So we moved to fiat currency, which is essentially an unsecured loan. It’s worth only as much as you believe it should be worth — it has no intrinsic value. When we moved off the gold standard, pretty much everyone else did, too. That makes Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society one of the biggest disasters in progressive policymaking. But have no fear, President Obama is trying to blow the doors of Johnson’s record!

Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke today said that the Federal Reserve is prepared to act with an additional round of quantitative easing if there is any weakening of the U.S. economy and threat of deflation. Bernanke also said that the Fed could act in other ways to stimulate the economy, such as cutting the interest rate that the Fed pays to banks on their $1.5 trillion in excess reserves that they currently keep parked at the Fed. NIA believes this $1.5 trillion alone would multiply into $15 trillion once it circulates through the U.S. economy and if Bernanke on top of that unleashes any additional quantitative easing, it will just about guarantee hyperinflation. Bernanke has made it very clear that he is prepared to print money until the U.S. dollar becomes worthless and the incomes and savings of all U.S. citizens are destroyed. Ron Paul today asked Bernanke whether or not he watches the price of gold and if he thinks gold is money. Although Bernanke admitted that he does watch the price of gold, Bernanke said that gold is not money, but it is only an asset. Bernanke explained that central banks only hold gold as a “tradition”. The truth is, gold has been accepted as money throughout all civilizations over periods of thousands of years. Bernanke doesn’t want U.S. citizens to wake up and realize that they can opt-out of the criminal Federal Reserve system if they get rid of their U.S. dollars and store all of their wealth in gold and silver. To see a video of Ron Paul’s exchange today with Bernanke, simply visit our blog at: http://inflation.us/blog/2011/07/video-of-ron-paul-asking-bernanke-if-gold-is-money/ The U.S. Constitution defined gold as legal tender and the current fiat currency system we have today where Bernanke can steal from the purchasing power of the poor and middle-class and redistribute this wealth to his banker friends on Wall Street is unconstitutional, immoral, and illegal. The U.S. dollar originally only had purchasing power because it was backed by gold. Today, the U.S. dollar is a fiat currency that is backed by nothing. Any remaining purchasing power the U.S. dollar still has is just an illusion and will soon evaporate due to Bernanke’s actions. In order for an item to function as money, it should be liquid and easily tradable, easily transportable, and durable. It should be divisible into smaller units without destroying its value and should also be (more…)

Kalen Smith, provided by Thursday, June 30, 2011 Gold is one of the most widely discussed metals due to its prominent role in both the investment and consumer world. Even though gold is no longer used as a primary form of currency in developed nations, it continues to have a strong impact on the value of those currencies. Moreover, there is a strong correlation between its value and the strength of currencies trading on foreign exchanges. To help illustrate this relationship between gold and foreign exchange trading, consider these five important aspects: 1. Gold was once used to back up fiat currencies. As early as the Byzantine Empire, gold was used to support fiat currencies, or the various currencies considered legal tender in their nation of origin. Gold was also used as the world reserve currency up through most of the 20th century; the United States used the gold standard until 1971 when President Nixon discontinued it. One of the reasons for its use is that it limited the amount of money nations were allowed to print. This is because, then as now, countries had limited gold supplies on hand. Until the gold standard was abandoned, countries couldn’t simply print their fiat currencies ad nauseum unless they possessed an equal amount of gold. Although the gold standard is no longer used in the developed world, some economists feel we should return to it due to the volatility of the U.S. dollar and other currencies. 2. Gold is used to hedge against inflation. Investors typically buy large quantities of gold when their country is experiencing high levels of inflation. The demand for gold increases during inflationary times due to its inherent value and limited supply. As it cannot be diluted, gold is able to retain value much better than other forms of currency. For example, in April 2011, investors feared declining values of fiat currency and the price of gold was driven to a staggering $1,500 an ounce. This indicates there was little confidence in the currencies on the world market and that expectations of future economic stability were grim. 3. The price of gold affects countries that import and export it. The value of a nation’s currency is strongly tied to the value of its imports and exports. When a country imports more than it exports, the value of its currency will decline. On the other hand, the value of its currency will increase when (more…)

05/23/11 Novato, California – This month, lawmakers in Utah have made plans for gold and silver to be functional as currency in the Beehive State. Utah is now the nation’s first state where precious metals will be as good as US dollars. Some details for how the new legislation will practically impact trade remain murky. For example, merchants are not required to accept metals as payment, nor is there a clear indication as to whether coins should be adopted at face or market value. However, the state law has clearly exempted sales of precious metal coins from state taxes on capital gains. From the Associated Press: “The idea was spawned by Republican state Rep. Brad Galvez, who sponsored the bill largely to serve as a protest against Federal Reserve monetary policy. Galvez says Americans are losing faith in the dollar. If you’re mad about government debt, ditch the cash. Spend your gold and silver, he says. “His idea isn’t to return to the gold standard, when the dollar was backed by gold instead of government goodwill. Instead, he just wanted to create options for consumers. ‘We’re too far down the road to go back to the gold standard,’ Galvez said. ‘This will move us toward an alternative currency.’ “Earlier this month, Minnesota took a step closer to joining Utah in making gold and silver legal tender. A Republican lawmaker there introduced a bill that sets up a special committee to explore the option. North Carolina, Idaho and at least nine other states also have similar bills drafted.” The law has also quickly laid the foundation for launching new business ideas, as the move is a boon to innovation in domestic currency alternatives: “Craig Franco hopes to cash in on it with his Utah Gold and Silver Depository, and he thinks others will soon follow. The idea is simple: Store your gold and silver coins in a vault, and Franco issues a debit-like card to make purchases backed by your holdings. He plans to open for business June 1, likely the first of its kind in the country… “…At the moment, Franco’s idea would generally be the only practical use of the law in Utah, given the legislation doesn’t require merchants to accept the coins, either at face value — $50 for a 1-ounce gold coin — or market value, currently almost $1,500 per ounce. And no one expects people will be (more…)

Dollar to RMB Question – Would you rather hold currency that is backed by nothing or one that is backed by gold or silver? It is rumored that the Chinese government is considering at least a partial backing of their renminbi currency by gold bullion. China has been buying gold, copper, silver and mining companies at a rapid pace. They have been using their U.S. Dollar holdings to do so. Although it is true that China is looking at asset bubbles in housing and equities, it is interesting to consider the possibility of the RMB becoming the new world reserve currency in the coming decade. httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v3Oqnbd2aVQ Share this:FacebookLinkedInTwitterGoogleTumblrPinterestReddit (more…)

James Turk Published 4/25/2011 The international monetary system is stacked in favor of the United States. It has been that way since the Bretton Woods conference in 1944 placed the US dollar at the system’s centre, thereby making it the dominant currency in global commerce. Although the international monetary system presently operates far differently from the mechanism established by that conference more than six decades ago, there is no denying that the US dollar still takes center stage. Though international trade denominated in US dollars has fallen from its peak around 95% to about 55% today, the dollar is still by far the most widely recognized and used international currency. The euro trails at a distant second, with the British pound, Japanese yen, Chinese yuan and other currencies even further afield. As a consequence of this leading role as well as the perennial US trade deficits, the dollar is the most important national currency held in reserve by governments and their central banks. As but one example, about 90% of Japan’s foreign currency reserve is denominated in US dollars. China, which holds the world’s largest currency reserve, does not disclose its composition, but it is believed that well more than one-half of its total $3 trillion reserve is denominated in dollars. This accumulation of dollars has been advantageous to the United States. It has kept these dollars out of United States, which would have a huge inflationary impact if they were used to purchase US-based assets. It has also helped the federal government finance its perennial operating deficit, and dollar interest rates today are no doubt lower than they would otherwise be if central banks were not regularly buying US government debt instruments with the dollars funneled to them from exports sent to the United States. In its trade with China and Japan, the United States in effect imports refrigerators and automobiles and countless other goods and exports dollar denominated IOU’s to pay for them, but rising tensions signal that many countries are questioning whether they should continue accepting this dollar imperialism willingly. China in particular with huge surpluses is becoming less inclined to automatically accumulate dollars endlessly. It and other countries recognize that the dollar is not a neutral tool in the international economy, but rather, a weapon. In the view of Washington, D.C., policymakers, if you use the US dollar, you have got to play by their rules. Many (more…)
