How Inflation Makes Saving Money Almost Pointless

Image by Getty Images via @daylife One of the most dangerous lies in all of finance and economics is the implied myth that inflation somehow “destroys” wealth. It doesn’t. Inflation doesn’t hurt everyone equally — inflation helps some and hurts others. Inflation is actually one of the biggest reasons large corporations are so powerful in society. The government and big banks use inflation to force people to spend their money and go into as much debt as they can afford. But how does it all work? Before we answer that, let’s first look at a parable. Some things are best learned in a story format, and inflation is one of those. The Saver and the Slave: An Inflation Story There were once two men who were neighbors. Their names were “Jack” and “John”. Jack was a saver. He spent his entire life saving every penny he could get his hands on. He saved money with coupons, saved money by buying stuff only in off-seasons, saved money by spending as little as he could, etc. He was a saver. By the time he was 45, he had saved exactly $100,000. John was a spender. He spent every dime he ever earned. Back in his 20s, he even took out a $100,000 loan, and bought two houses with it. He never used coupons, never looked at prices before buying anything, and wore nicer clothes. During this time, inflation started to hit in. Inflation was fairly high. By the time Jack and John were 45, inflation destroyed 90% of the value of the US dollar. For Jack, this was disastrous. He spent his whole life saving $100,000, and suddenly it was worth only 10% of what it should have been worth. This means that rather than having 100k it was as though he only had 10k. Not enough to even buy a house. For John, this was perfect. He spent his whole life spending his money, so he didn’t see his money lose value. He took out a 100k loan, but his loan was only like he had a 10k loan now — and he still has two houses. John ended up selling one house, paying off the loan, and walking away with a free house, and 90k. Inflation Destroys Debt and Dollars Inflation doesn’t destroy wealth — inflation destroys dollars. This means if you’re in debt, inflation makes your debt less and less. If inflation is 10%, it’s like your debt is getting 10% smaller every year. If you’re a saver, inflation makes your savings 10% smaller every year. Every year people in debt see their net worth increase because of inflation....

The “7 Steps” to The Life Cycle of Money!

I’m here to help you understand MONEY at its simplest form. Robert ‘Rich Dad’ Kiyosaki states over and over that the knowledge of money matters are the pinnacle supreme to financial wealth success. You can tell that he truly believes this in his writings. Like I said, I’m here to help you understand ‘ understand MONEY at its simplest form. These are The 7 Steps to the Life Cycle of Money (in any society or civilization proven throughout history!): 1. Free Market emerges In the beginning of any civilization or the re-beginning of a civilization such as after an economic collapse, one thing immediately emerges due to the talents and gifts given to everyone individually and specifically. One man may specialize in cutting down trees and building houses while another herds cattle and yet another grows vegetables in a garden. Then this is what happens: The timberman needs food and the gardener needs a house. This is where the need to trade naturally emerges And You Have ‘Free Trade’ .. This is also known as a barter system. 2. Free Market Money emerges Next, a Free Market Money emerges. This is a Need due to the fact that different quantities of different items have a ‘different value’. So for example, say the Gardener needs a house built but the Timberman doesn’t need that many vegetables. They will go to waste. Meanwhile, somewhere in the free market, a man found a gold mine and started mining for gold. This is his trade, and this is also a very difficult process. Due to its lack there of and difficulty to mine, free market money (gold and silver) emerges. This is now used as a ‘trading unit’ in free trade. 3. Government emerges Order slowly starts coming to the civilization and a government emerges to maintain that law & order. (note: they don’t provide any direct products or services to the market but to ‘regulate’) In not too long, the government starts regulating the market by placing rules in effect (i.e. times to trade, what can be traded, taxes, and more.) 4. Government Monopolizes The government decides to issue its own form of ‘money’ also known as fiat money or currency. Its important to realize that this is not gold or silver. This becomes items such as the $20 paper promise note in your pocket that probably didn’t cost anymore than $.01 cent to create. So, it leads to the very curious question: How much is your ‘money’ really worth? 5. Debase the Money Didn’t think it could get any worse or more manipulated? Well, this is the process in which leads...
