Investment Strategies of the Rich Have Been Revealed

Mike Dillard, founder of Elevation Group, premiered his new investment program via Internet December 13. The purpose of the Elevation Group is to teach its members how to become rich and take advantage of the upcoming economic collapse. During the 90 minute Elevation Group presentation, Dillard made a comparison between the Roman Empire and the United States, stating that we must ‘learn from history.’ Using Michael Maloney’s seven stage progression of currency, Dillard discussed similarities between the U.S. and Rome for each stage. He forecasted that the United States would follow the demise of its economy, just like the Roman Empire. Maloney’s first stage is when the country is founded or funded with gold. Both the United States and Rome had a strong gold foundation in the beginning. The second stage begins as the country develops multi layers of public programs for its citizens. The third stage is when the nation begins to establish political influence in the world, and as a result, a military is established and bankrolled by the national administration. Dillard describes the fourth stage, as the time the nation begins to use its military, and the cost amplifies. The fifth stage is the waging of war. Due to the great cost involved, the national currency is created in unlimited and unsecured amounts. The sixth stage is where the expansion of the currency causes severe inflation. Society loses faith in the currency. Dillard describes the final stage of Maloney’s progression of currency as when the nation abandons the currency, and returns to a system of bartering or using precious metals, (such as gold) again. Dillard claims, the United States is now positioned between the sixth and seventh stages. He predicts that in the next 6 to 36 months, the country will move into the final stage. The Elevation Group has been developed by Mike Dillard to help individuals prepare for the collapse of the United States economy, and to position themselves to use this event as a wealth building opportunity. More Information on how to become rich and take advantage of the upcoming economic collapse is available in this 90 minutes presentation . Mike Dillard’s new program ‘The Elevation Group‘ is already receiving an incredible amount of hype but is it really worth the cost or is this just another slick marketing tactic praying upon harsh economic times? Read my review before you decide to buy it! If the current economic hardships haven’t directly affected you, then I guarantee you know someone it has. The way people think and act in regards to finances has changed greatly in just the last few years as we have...

Chris Martenson’s presentation at the Gold & Silver Meeting in Madrid

In this video Chris Martenson, economic analyst at http://chrismartenson.com and author of ‘The Crash Course’, explains why he thinks that the coming 20 years are going to look completely unlike the last 20 years. In his presentation he focuses on the so-called three “Es”: Economy, Energy and Environment. He argues that at this point in time it is no longer possible to view either one of those topics separately from one another. Since all our money is loaned onto existence, our economy has to grow exponentially. Martenson proves this point empirically by showing a 99.9% fit of the actual growth curve of the last 40 years to an exponential curve. If we wanted to continue on this path, our debt load would have to double again over the next 10 years. By continually increasing our debt relative to GDP we are making the assumption that our future will always be wealthier than our past. He believes that this assumption is flawed and that the debt loads are already unmanageable. Martenson explains how exponential growth works and why it is so scary that our economy is based on it. In an example he illustrates how unimaginably fast things speed up towards the end of an exponential curve. He shows that an exponential chart can be found in every one of the three “E’s” for instance in GDP growth, oil production, water use or species extinction. Due to the natural limitations on resources, Martenson comes to the conclusion that we are facing a serious energy crisis. This energy predicament is namely that the quantity of oil as well as the quality of oil are in decline. He shows that oil discoveries peaked in 1964 and oil production peaked 40 years later. Martenson also shows how our return on invested energy is rapidly declining — the “cheap and easy” oil fields have already been exploited. In 1930 the energy return for oil was 100:1 or greater. Today it is already down to 3:1 and newer technologies such as corn-based ethanol only provide a 1.5:1 return. Martenson predicts that the time in between oil shocks will get shorter and shorter and that oil prices will go much higher. Not only oil but also other natural resources are being rapidly used up as well. At the current projected pace of use, known reserves for many metals and minerals will be gone within the next 10 to 20 years. The energy needed to get these non-renewable resources out of the ground is growing exponentially. So we live in a world that must grow, but can’t grow and is subject to depletion. The conclusion out of...

Mike Maloney: The Greatest Bubble in History Is at Our Doorstep

By Jeff Clark, BIG GOLD It may not feel like it after a 12% correction in the past 30 days, but Mike Maloney – founder of GoldSilver.com – is convinced that we’re in a gold bull market that will be life changing for those who participate. I interviewed him for our current edition of BIG GOLD and am sharing some of what we talked about here. You may be shocked at what you read, because he’s devoted a larger allocation to gold and silver than we have. See why he’s convinced a bubble is ahead for precious metals, how high prices will go, and why he stores some gold overseas. Jeff Clark: For those who don’t know you, why is Mike Maloney such a big believer in gold and silver? Mike Maloney: Around 1999, my mother needed help with the estate my father had left her. My sister and I interviewed a dozen financial planners and picked the one that had the most glowing recommendations and gave him control of the assets. He lost about 50% of them in the next year and a half. What I’ve found is most financial planners get it wrong. They’re always chasing yesterday’s news. To be fair, there was a market crash, but with 50% of her assets gone by 2001, I ripped everything away from him, moved it to cash, and started studying the economy like crazy. I discovered that the people concerned about budget deficits and trade imbalances at that time were in the precious metals sector, the hard money advocates. All the rest of the economists and newsletter writers didn’t really care. Concerns about international trade imbalances and how they were going to come back to bite us one day were coming from the hard money analysts. They also wrote about monetary history, something I just fell in love with. The fact that things just repeat over and over again is amazing. I have hard data from 1918 to today, and anecdotal evidence before 1918, that shows that throughout history a society has a certain amount of real money – gold and silver. Then they either come out with debased coinage, or paper representations of gold and silver and expand the currency supply, which eventually cause prices to rise. People then realize there was something wrong with the currency and they rush back toward gold and silver to protect their purchasing power… and in doing so, they bid up the value of the gold and silver in the country until it matches the value of the circulating medium. It appears to me this process has been going on since 407 BC, with the first great inflation...

Bad News For The Fed and IRS – Conspiracy of the Rich

Bad News For The Fed and IRS This month, Utah became the first state in the country to legalize gold and silver coins as currency. So what does this mean to you, me, the Fed, IRS, and the world? To understand the significance of Utah’s actions, you need to understand the definition of the word “currency.” As strange as it may seem, governments determine what they think money is. For most of us, money or currency is the paper in our wallets. It only has value because governments have the power to declare paper to be money. In 1933, President Franklin Roosevelt made owning gold illegal. The president declared that money now was paper. The key to this scheme working, is the government only accepts its own “paper” as money. You cannot pay your taxes with gold or silver…only official government paper. To make sure we only used “paper” the government imposed a very high capital gains tax of 28% on gold and silver. That means, if you bought gold or silver for let’s say $10 and it increased in value by $10, the government would tax you $2.80 for your gains, even if you held the gold or silver for several years. A 28% tax is nearly 100% higher than long-term capital gains tax of 15% in the US. For example, if I bought a stock for $10, held it for a year, and sold it for $20, my tax would be $1.50 on my gains. One reason why I like real estate, better than paper assets or gold and silver, is I can be taxed 0% on my gains. In fact, if I use the tax laws correctly, I receive money back from the government. In other words, rather than be taxed for $10 gains, I often receive additional money, a payment from the government rewarding me for making money. For example, not only do I receive my $10 gain, I receive an additional $2 from the government for doing what the government wants me to do. Please read my latest book Unfair Advantage – The Power of Financial Education to better understand how entrepreneurs and real estate investors use the tax law to receive payments from the government. In this book, my tax accountant and Rich Dad Advisor, Tom Wheelwright does a better job of explaining this tax strategy. He explains that real estate is one of the few investments where not only can you legally escape tax on your gains and your cash flow (rents), you can actually receive tax deductions against your other taxable income. So if you have $10 of cash flow from...
