Are Precious Metals Going up or is Paper Money Going Down?
I don’t claim to be an expert on currencies but I know I’m not alone when I say something’s happening in the financial world. From what I can tell, the dollar is falling and it’s dragging the other currencies down with it. The printing presses in the U.S. are pumping out massive amounts cash and the other nations around the world are forced to do the same. The way I understand it, the other leading countries have to follow suit and dilute their currency along with America, otherwise the world may be in for another financial title wave like the one in 2008.
I don’t say this to scare people, I say it to get people to look at a trend, and unfortunately the trend is the falling dollar. The reasons for the consistent drop in the dollar can be attributed to a lot of things. Most recently it is due to the massive increase in government spending. I’m not here to point fingers at the current administration because the wheels have been set in motion for quite some time now. The reality is that the currencies are doing what they’re doing and there’s not much I (or really anyone) can do about it except to prepare for it.
Here’s a small example of what I’m talking about. A Ford Mustang in 1966 was 2,500 dollars. That’s either paper dollars or 1oz. silver dollars. These days 2,500 silver dollars will buy 3 brand new Mustangs, and after you paid for them you’d still have money left over to go on a very nice vacation. Personally, I’d say something’s off.
This leads me to the main question. Are precious metals going up or is paper money going down? I like the idea that gold and precious metals are the next big bubble because that means the purchasing power of the dollar is going to bounce back. Unfortunately, I don’t see that happening. I see a government that will continue to print money out of thin air until we’re using bundles of paper dollars to keep warm in the winter. I know it’s a bleak view of America’s currency, but just remember that more millionaires were made during the great depression than any other time in history.
What I’ve come to understand is that the wealth in the world isn’t going anywhere, it’s just transitioning from group A to group B. I know of a lot of rich individuals that have intimate knowledge of this transition and they are positioning themselves to not only survive this exchange but profit from it. Did you know that when the global financial “crisis” hit, some of the people who saw it coming made a ton of money? I know it’s hard to believe but not everyone lost money in ‘08; in fact some people shorted stocks and positioned themselves to make billions from the crash. Like I said before I’m just a regular guy and I’m not saying to buy precious metals. What I am saying is that if you want to maintain your wealth, you should be aware that there is a trend occurring and it doesn’t look good for paper money.
I don’t believe the change that’s happening is all bad, and I still hold out hope for the future. Honestly, I think that after the dust settles, the true entrepreneurs of the world will emerge and improve on what we have today. I know my observation paints a gloomy picture but I’m not an alarmist, I just want to inform people of the challenges we face. I don’t want the people who read this to think that they have to run for the hills and cower in a bomb shelter. The main reason I wrote this article is to give people knowledge of the transition. I want to give the next generation of leaders a chance to come out ahead. I don’t want people to get sucked into the downward spiral of fear and doubt. I want to empower them, I want people to be in a position of strength so they can help build a better future.
