Why would you Buy Gold and Silver?

A day at the beach blog header


Why would you buy gold and silver?  To leave a legacy for you and your family.  This is my mission.  I want to educate people on the value of sound money and why buying as much gold and silver you can afford is a very wise decision.

And once you make that decision you now have a plan that can give you a lifestyle powered by Gold and Silver.

Are you working harder for more money to cover the basics?  

It’s not just you!  Higher costs and added financial pressures on families today are causing fear, uncertainty, and doubt on a large scale.

As of May 2017, 44% of Americans said they could not cover a $400 emergency expense and would rely on credit cards, selling something or borrowing the money f such an event arose.

What’s happening with your money?  It’s in the numbers…

In 1913 the Federal Reserve was created, the dollar was worth $1.00 

In 1933 FDR’s executive order makes it illelat to hold gold coins, bullion or certificates. The dollar was worth $.75.

In 1944 Bretton Woods establishes the USD as the world’s reserve currency. The dollar is now worth $.50.

In 1971 Nixon closes the “gold window,” ends Bretton Woods agreement, and begins the modern-day fiat currency system.  The dollar is now work $.25

2013 the dollar is worth $.05

This was the purchasing power of the U.S. Dollar  1913-2013: Source: Bureau of Labor Statistics.

The dollar has lost around 96% of its value since the Federal Reserve was created in 1913.

Let me give you an example: Let’s say your family had a trust in 1913 with $1.000.000 in it and it lost the same value in purchasing power as the chart above.  You are the lucky person to get the money out today.  How much would you be getting?

Answer: Between $40,000 and $50,000.

Why?  Increase money supply.  The more money they print the less it is worth!

Food at home increased 43%, heat sources increased 99%, Car Insurance increased 97%, College Tuition increased 97% and Medical Care increased 97%.  Well you get the picture.

The only way to stop this vicious cycle is to do something different.  Your job is not going to get you a different outlook.  In most cases you will only be able to go up the pay grade so far.  But while you are waiting for a pay raise, everything else around you is going higher and that is a fact!

So you have a choice and it is up to you to make the decision.  I cannot make it for you.  Either stay on that job you hate but need to feed your family or start your own business.

Most people who have a job do not realize the tax advantages they get by owning their own business.  It used to be that the ordinary person could write off the interest on their mortgages, credit cards, and auto loans.  NOT ANY MORE!

If you have a home business you get to write off your cell phone, part of your home because of the home office, and anything you buy for your business in the way of business supplies.  It is amazing all the stuff you can write off with a 1099,

Something to think about right.  So if you are wondering where to start, let me help you with that.  I don’t expect you to jump in with two feet.  Look me up on Facebook hit me up with a friend request.  Get to know me and check out my page.
