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....

Robert Kiyosaki – Buy or Sell Gold?

Image by hto2008 via Flickr Buy or Sell Gold? The latest Wall Street Journal is filled with stories about financial planners advising clients to either sell their gold or not buy anymore. Naturally, you’re probably asking, “Should I buy or sell gold?” My answer is that it depends. My gold buying career began in 1972 while I was a pilot in Vietnam, when gold was about $85 an ounce. When it passed $750 an ounce from 1979 to 1980, I was forced to sell, not because I wanted to, but because I needed to pay off some bills. In the 1980’s, when Kim and I were flat broke, we bought a little gold and a little silver on a regular basis. When gold dropped below $400 on its way down from $850, I bought gold at $400, thinking it was a good price. Then it dropped to $375. I felt stupid, saying to myself, “I should have waited.” So, I bought at $375 and it dropped again. Still feeling stupid, I bought more gold. When gold went below $300 around the year 2000, I bought as much as I could afford. In 1996, with gold and silver so low in price, a group of investors and me purchased a silver mine in South America and a gold mine in China. We nearly went broke bringing both mines to market in Canada. The silver mine was sold to another silver company and the Chinese gold mind went public through an IPO on the Canadian Exchange. I regret selling that silver mine. I should’ve held on to it but the cash was tight and the offer too good to refuse. In 2000, Rich Dad Poor Dad was still a self-published, obscure book. We had no income from the book or our games. Oprah hadn’t called yet to get me on her program. Our primary investments at the time were larger apartment houses and one commercial property. Cash was tight in 2000, but with gold and silver at such low prices, we cut corners on food and luxuries and bought as many gold and silver coins we could afford. In 2001, after Rich Dad Poor Dad took off, Ron Insana interviewed me on the financial TV channel, CNBC. He asked me what I was investing in and I told him gold. He thought gold was a strange investment but listened to my arguments politely. Generally, paper asset investors like Ron Insana, don’t invest in gold, silver, or real estate. If they do invest in hard assets, they invest via paper assets through gold mining shares, ETFs (Exchange Traded Funds), and REITs (Real...

Revealing Robert Kiyosaki Predictions For The Future

A book that was in the top 5 positions on the New York Times Bestseller list for 290 straight weeks, with 13 years of success and 28 million copies sold worldwide rarely needs any introduction and Robert Kiyosaki and his motivational book series “Rich Dad Poor Dad” can certainly attest to that. Why not consider advice on obtaining success from a man who was once named on a “30 Entrepreneurs We Most Admire” list? In his groundbreaking book, Kiyosaki touches upon the two most influential persons in his life. They are two men with two totally different attitudes regarding all aspects of finance and success. He describes the positive outlook of one father, and the negative outlook of the other. His “poor” dad had the attitude that “You can’t afford to do this,” and sadly, manifested a life of poverty. The other, his “rich” dad rose to wealth by teaching the proper mindset for success and instilling in him the mantra, “Let’s see how we can make this a possibility for you.” He learned valuable lessons about economic security, self-perception and the power of working for himself from both of his fathers – the rich dad and the poor dad-and what he learned has little to do with college degrees or extensive education. Quite simply, Kiyosaki tells us that opening our minds to the right questions can open our lives up to unlimited possibilities. Working for yourself will help you retire comfortably because when you believe and invest in yourself, you have more power and control over your future. Kiyosaki knows this from life experience and continues to document his path to success throughout his best-selling books, DVDs, games and seminars. Robert Kiyosaki explores the powerful life lessons he received from his “rich” dad. This was the father who taught him financial freedom and showed him first-hand how to make his money work for him, so that he didn’t have to work so hard for his money. This dad showed him step-by-step how to exponentially increase wealth by becoming a business owner, rather than working for someone else at a job (just over broke) that would never get him ahead financially. Kiyosaki demonstrates how you can do less work and make more money and how wealth is accessible to us all. He and mega-mogul Donald Trump are huge proponents of direct sales and network marketing opportunities as a great start to an entrepreneurial career and building a business that will be around long after we are gone – something we can pass on to our children for generations to come. When you make the decision to start your own...
