Governments Never Stop Printing Money

"Throughout history, governments and the banking system start with a certain amount of gold and silver. Then they make things 'easier' on the population by storing the heavy gold and silver for us and printing receipts for us to use as currency. But the trouble is they never stop printing."

500 Ounces of Silver Could Buy a House in the Future

"After studying things like the tulip mania of 1637, the Nasdaq bubble of the 1990s, the history and the current fundamentals of gold and silver, and the history of financial cycles, it would not surprise me in the least to see less than 500 ounces of silver buy a median-price single family home sometime in the future."

They Will Inflate Away the Value of the Currency Suppy

Death of The Dollar Update



For more than four years now Michael Maloney has been demonstrating to audiences around the world that every 30-40 years the world has an entirely new global monetary system, that the current monetary system (the U.S. dollar standard) is aging and becoming unstable, and, just like the previous monetary systems, will soon implode. 


On June 1st, 2014, at the Cambridge House Investment Conference in Vancouver, Canada, he updated his "Death of the Dollar" presentation and showed how the "Nails in the Coffin of the Dollar Standard" are now coming faster and are more furious than ever before. He believes that there will be a global currency crisis before the end of this decade and that the days of the dollar standard are numbered.

In a second presentation on the same day he makes the most convincing argument yet that there is a massive deflation coming, that there will probably be an overnight devaluation of the dollar and huge overnight revaluation of gold, and, though it will be painful for most, it is the greatest opportunity in history for those who are prepared.

Hyperinflation Makes Investments Rise, But Are They?

"Under big inflation all investments appear to rise, but many actually fall in value. This is simply due to the fact that while your investments might be returning 10 percent, the dollar would be inflating 20 percent. Effectively, that would equate to a loss in value of 10 percent."

Massive Market Divergence In 3 Charts


In this latest update, Mike Maloney shows one of the most concerning data points for today's stock markets: decreasing volume. This is happening while markets are levitated by Federal Reserve stimulus and negative interest rates. "This is not a healthy market. This means that less and less of the real investors are in there, and more and more of this is black box trading. The problem with that is that when the markets change every black box is going to be selling at once, so what is being set up here is probably the biggest market crash in history...Once that breaks, we're going to see pretty much a different world I think."

Silver & Gold: Overnight Revaluation?



Gold always accounts for an expanding fiat currency supply, either through a bull market that can last years as gold reasserts its value, or through a snap overnight revaluation as we've seen many times before in history. How will it play out this time?

In this video (taken from Michael Maloney's 55 minute Bonus Presentation from his 'Death Of The Dollar Update' speech), Mike explains the mechanics behind what he sees coming: short term deflation followed by big or even hyperinflation as central banks try to print their way out of the mess they have created. The result is the same as it has always been througout history, with gold delivering either a technical knockout or a complete decimation of currency. Be sure to watch the full presentation to get Mike's 'most likely' scenario, and to understand how not being in the market at the right time will mean missing out.

How Did this Woman Predict USA's fate 50 Years Ago?


Is money the root of all evil? In answer to that question, I had originally intended to set a world record for the 'World's Shortest Article' and simply write 'NO!', then add the video, and post it to the interweb. But that would be far too lazy, and this is far too important. Plus there's a great story behind this weeks post, so allow me to set the scene: Let's start by imagining you are in our main office...

Welcome to our weekly company meeting. Like most businesses, each week we have a scheduled time where staff from all departments meet and report on what they achieved during the past week, as well as what will be happening in the near future. For us, this happens every Friday afternoon. It's the only time during the week when the phones are predictably quieter, a handy result of being located on the West Coast and marching to the tune of an East Coast market close. It's nice to catch up with everybody, sometimes we have several laptops out with team members Skyping in from all corners of the globe. There will usually be a birthday or two to celebrate-- so it's also a fantastic excuse to eat some cake and chocolate dipped strawberries if that's your kind of thing. It certainly does the trick for me!

At these weekly meetings our CEO, Mike Maloney, usually reads something to the team. It could be a current news item, or something that he has been working on for his new book. But most often, it will be a short snippet of wisdom from something Mike has found to be inspirational (A book called 'The Traveller's Gift' makes regular appearances -- Mike insists that our HR people hand out a copy to each new employee). It's always fun, and Mike gets a buzz from it because just 15 years ago, he would not have been capable of reading anything to any audience. If you've seen Episode 3 of Hidden Secrets Of Money you'll already know that Mike is dyslexic, but has managed to pretty much overcome the hurdle thanks to modern technology. He still practices what he is going to read a few times beforehand to become familiar with the piece, but there's no need to. He now reads better than most folks. Folks where I'm from, anyway!

Recently, Mike mentioned to me that he was going to read a section from his favorite book of all time - Ayn Rand's 'Atlas Shrugged'. Whoa. This was obviously not going to be a normal company meeting. Having just started to scrape the surface of explaining the dangers of socialism in Episode 5 of Hidden Secrets Of Money, it was obvious that this reading would make for an excellent video. It's also very timely when you consider the current events in Crimea, where Ayn Rand lived as a young girl. Yet another example of history echoing through the ages.

So, as that guy said in 'American Pie', God bless the internet. Here it is for you to watch at your leisure, grab yourself a chair and get comfy. There are so many great quotes from Ayn Rand in here that it can be a little overwhelming -- it really is a Tour De Force of logic and reason. Please watch it a couple of times, take it all in, and then here is a challenge for you: Pick your favorite lines, and add them to the comments below. Let's see which sections resonate the most.

I hope you enjoy being in our our company meeting. The vibe isn't usually this heavy, I promise. In fact, straight after Mike's reading we got stuck into the strawberries and sang Happy Birthday to him. More importantly however, we closed out the meeting as we do every week by reading our mission together, out loud:

To enlighten the world that maximum prosperity can only be achieved through individual freedom, free markets, and sound money.

Thank you all for your continued support of Hidden Secrets Of Money, and for helping us to accomplish our mission on a larger scale each day. Episodes 6, 7, 8 and 9 are all in the works and will be released in the coming months. If you watch this video closely you might spot some footage from these next episodes...

As always, all we ask for in return is that you share this video far and wide. This is a message that needs to be heard.

Man, I need a strawberry.

The Big Picture For Gold & Silver


We are living through unprecedented times, and if there is one lesson to keep in mind it is this: The failure of a monetary system is never a smooth road paved with gold. It is rocky and undulating, with twists and turns that don't appear on any map. But the destination is always without question: Gold always accounts for an expanding fiat currency supply. That simple.

Gold and Silver Will Bring Fraudulent Money to Justice

"Once again, the accounting has begun, and it will not stop until the full accounting is completed.

They've always done this and they always will.

Rare Chance to Become Very Wealthy, Very Quickly

The Private Sector is What Creates an Economy, Not the Government

Big government creates less individual freedom because the larger a government is, the more everybody says "Well I've got an idea...we can prevent this from happening by passing a law against that, and we can encourage this by passing this law". So there are all these 'great' ideas that people have that they think are going to fix things and make the economy better...but after a while you find out that you've got limited choice, that the your life is being managed, that you can't do the things that you want to do.

The private sector is what creates an economy, not the government. All wealth comes from the private sector. Government consumes it.

The larger the size and of the government compared to the size of the private economy, the worse the economy gets. So anytime somebody says "They ought to pass a law against this!" or "They ought to pass a law against that!", or "The government needs to rush in and save us against this or that!", what you're doing is hiring a bunch of people that are going to have frictional jobs that do not create wealth. They don't add to the economy and they get paid by extracting wealth from the private economy.

So our prosperity falls with increasing size of government, it rises with a decreasing size of government.

Simple as that.

How To Avoid Fake Silver & Counterfeit Gold Products


If you have followed gold and silver market news over the past few years, it is likely you have seen various reports on fake gold and silver products.

In March 2012, a 1 kilo tungsten gold bar turned up in the United Kingdom.

Then in September 2012 there were reports on a slew of 10 oz tungsten gold bars bought and sold in New York's jewelry district.

The big problem with these news reports is that they have given little to no solution on how the public at large can avoid fake bullion products.

We would like to raise the general awareness of this issue both with our customers, our industry, and the general gold and silver investing public at large. With more than a year of hands on research, we have identified some of the biggest fake silver and gold counterfeit threats facing the investing public today.

This Special Report on the growing threat of fake silver and counterfeit gold products will arm you with solutions on how to best avoid being ripped off by sellers of phony bullion products.

Freedom From Choice - New Documentary With Peter Schiff, Mike Maloney & More...


Life is about choice. What we eat, what we read, who we elect; every day we make choices that determine how we want to live.

But what if these choices are just an illusion?

In an era where regulations and red tape rule every industry, where lobby groups and big business wield more influence than ever before, our daily choices have become increasingly limited. And with all our options so deliberately hand-picked, are we really making a choice at all?

Freedom From Choice is a feature-length documentary examining the current state of life and personal choice in America today. Experts from many different fields offer a frank and startling look at the hidden limitations in our daily lives. Focusing on key areas such as food, medicine, finance, and media, Freedom From Choice provides viewers with a glimpse at the myriad of ways their lives are being dictated, and tells us who stands to gain.

Presented in an entertaining style, Freedom From Choice is a film not about the choices we make, but rather the choices that are being made for us.

It is possible to convert your 401(k) to a physical gold or silver 401(k).This article is about steps you can take to do so.

Because gold and silver bullion often move counter to equities and mutual funds generally offered by company plans, precious metals can be an excellent addition to help ensure a balanced retirement portfolio.

With gold and silver's current bullish investment fundamentals, many people are trying to get as much exposure to these two precious metals as possible. If you have a 401(k) retirement savings account, converting it to a gold 401(k) or silver 401(k) could be one of the easiest ways to gain exposure to gold and silver with no cash out of pocket!

1 Oz of Silver Equals 200 Lbs of Salt?


One of the hardest things I've ever done in my life is editing the series 'Hidden Secrets Of Money'. The hard part being the decisions on which parts to leave out. So far we have filmed in 16 different countries around the world in our effort to show the history of money from an Austrian Economics perspective, and from each country we end up with hours of great footage. This is a result of the way the series is produced - Mike is at his best when he is thinking on his feet and speaking from his heart, so we never prepare a script. Instead, I throw a few pertinent questions at Mike in various forms and challenge his theories when we are shooting on location. It means we usually have to do a few takes to get something that we can use, but the result is so much better than what you get with a scripted performance to camera. The one time when we did try using a script was in France, and it was a complete disaster (wait for the outakes from that one!) so we've never done it again.

Episode 5 was filmed very quickly, with no script at all apart from the inerconnecting voiceovers of course. I knew that getting Mike into the ECB Money Museum was akin to letting a kid loose in a candy store, so we simply followed the exhibits around and I asked Mike to interpret the Museum's 'official' explanations. We had just over an hour to complete our filming, and pretty much everything was done in one take...I'm very happy with the way it came out.

While editing, there was one segment in particular that seemed to take a little long to get through, and that was the section that covers the transition from barter and commodity currencies to real money. In order to keep the episode under 30 minutes, I was trying to get this sequence wrapped up in under 8 minutes...which meant doing a little trimming. In the end, the video attached to this article was left out, in the pursuit of time and holding folks interest. I hope you enjoy it.

Don't Blame The Free Market or Capitalism



"We don't have free markets, and we haven't had since 1913. You can not have free markets if you don't have free market money.

The currency is 50% of every transaction there is in society, and if you hjave a small group of men at the central bank having a meeting each month (in the United States it's the FOMC) deciding how much currency there is going to be in the system, and what the cost of that currency is (the interest rate) - that's a manipulated market by definition.

There is no transaction in society that is not manipulated. When people say that the free markets are failing - we do not have free markets. When people say that capitalism isn't working - we don't have capitalism, we've got cronyism. We've got special favors being granted by Congress to the people that lobby them. It skews the economy, and creates all of these artificial bubbles that end up popping, and everybody loves living in a bubble - so they just want the Fed to create the next one."

There is No Possible Scenario in Which Gold and Silver do Not Rise

"So will this fight end with the precious metals winning by technical decision as gold and silver rise to astronomical heights while they do their accounting but still allow fiat currencies to survive? Or will it be knockout blow, the death of fiat currencies?

The difference will decide whether the wealth transfer will be just huge, or absolutely gargantuan.

But it really doesn't matter, because: There is no possible scenario in which gold and silver do not rise."

What Happened in Cyprus, is that Going to Happen in Some Other Countries?

The G20 and other nations have and are actively putting into place legal frameworks for future bank bail-ins.

National bank deposit insurance programs ( like the FDIC in the U.S.A. ) will most likely not be sufficient in the next major financial crisis.

In this day and age, it may be prudent to keep only enough cash reserves in banking institutions to cover one's opertating expenses.

Given the facts, it is our individual responsabilty to ensure our savings are not taken from us.

It is essential we cut out as many untrustworthy counterparties as possible.

What is a Bank Bail-in?

Put simply... if your bank goes bust, a percentage of your deposits or savings could be taken from you to help ensure the solvency of the bank.

Most people don't know it, but a bank depositor (someone with a checking or savings account) is an unsecured creditor to the bank.

If a bank or brokerage goes bust, unsecured depositors are some of the last creditors in line with very little sway in legal proceedings (think MF Global account holders).

Bank bail-ins have already occurred in countries like Cyprus.

Gold Revaluation and the Death of Money


Jim Rickards has been featured in 4 out of the 5 episodes that we have released so far in the 'Hidden Secrets Of Money' series - and for good reason. Jim is one of the most articulate thinkers and teachers in the world when it comes to explaining what is really happening in the world of economics today, especially when it comes to gold and silver.

Jim's first book 'Currency Wars' was a bestseller and is highly recommended reading for anyone who wants to get an understanding of economics from 'the inside'.

Phase Three of a Bull Market - The Euphoria Phase

Finally, it feels good. Most of the experts that were decidedly bearish during Phase 2 have now changed their minds and are spouting the virtues of this investment class. As the media gets on board with this new idea and starts to believe in it themselves they tend to interview the few remaining "kill-joy" analysts that still think this investment is a bad idea less and less often giving the public an even more biased view that this investment is "it". Finally after all these years of searching- mankind has found the perfect investment vehicle. This is now the "must have" investment and how people get rich.

The public invests in this vehicle en masse bidding up the prices higher and higher accelerating the gains making the investment that much more exciting for everyone else that has not fully invested yet. However, when the majority of investors have joined the party then a problem starts to occur. There aren't enough new investors bidding up the price of this asset to keep the price rising as quickly-so it starts to slow down. Sometimes bull markets end with a bang sometimes they carve a long arc on the chart as they top out and start to head down. This is where the "Bear slides down the slope of hope". Keep in mind that in phase 3 most everyone is completely convinced that this investment is almost infallible. Even as the market starts down people are sure that it is just a temporary setback and stay invested, often times adding to their positions. An example of this mentality is at the end of the Dot-com bubble in March of 2000. Both individual investors and also the large investment houses were so convinced that we had indeed entered a "new paradigm" that they just could not admit to themselves that the party was over. They kept "hoping" it would come back. Many of them rode the market down, wiping out much of their wealth.

Phase Two of a Bull Market - The Wall Worry Phase

This middle stage is where the general public becomes aware that this new market is moving higher. It is also typically the longest of the three phases. The financial and stock reporters on TV start to cover this new sector and interview the experts. To make it "fair" they find someone from each of the bull and bear camps. Each expert has a compelling argument as to why the other "expert" is wrong and why the price of this new market should go in the direction that they think it should. The investing public usually finds it difficult to take action at this point because there is so much uncertainty. They have just recently become aware that this market is moving higher, but in the back of their minds they keep remembering that not too long ago this market was going down year after year and they keep thinking of the "arguments" as to why investing in this market is risky. Examples of this phase include the stock markets in the mid-to-early 1980's and mid-to-early 1990's. Most of the public was aware that the stock market was making gains but were slow to aggressively invest in it because the pain of the past bear markets were still fresh in their minds.

The term "wall of worry" refers to the saying that "A bull market has to climb a wall of worry but a bear market slides down the slope of hope". This is an important concept to understand. We will discuss the bull market side of this saying first and then discuss the bear market side later in this article. As a bull market is advancing it doesn't feel good to the investors during this phase. The naysayers are everywhere publicly explaining away the recent advances in this market and explaining why this investment class will soon drop away. An investor that chooses to invest anyway has to decide for themselves that this is where they want to be, invest, and hang-on. Only after several years of consistent gains do the naysayers start to lighten up on their negativity and allow the participants to start feeling good about the investment they have made. When the media combines this new upbeat attitude with a chart of the gains that have happened so far then the mood shifts for the better and we enter the next stage.

Phase One of a Bull Market - The Denial Phase

The first stage of a bull market begins just as its last bear market is ending. In fact after a true multi-year bone-jarring bear market very few people are even interested in or even watching for a bottom. As an example consider the stock market in the early 1980's, for the more than 16 years this market had gone nowhere. In 1966 the Dow Jones industrial Average hit 1,000 and in late 1982 the Dow was again at 1,000. It had zigged and zagged for these 16 years but ended up roughly where it started. For the "buy and hold" investor this period was a bust. Most had given up on this sector and were instead paying a lot of attention to the hot sectors of the day, bonds and precious metals.

Since asset classes trend up and down in long cycles with many smaller "counter-cycles" in them people who have been trying to "time the bottom" have been caught time and time again buying into the "counter-cycle" rallies. They were thinking that they had finally found the bottom of the market- only to have the bottom drop out of the market, once again, burning the investor. So, once a true bottom has formed many participants remain highly skeptical that it really is a true bottom and stay away from the market even as the market continues higher and higher.

A Warning For Americans - Is Money The Root Of All Evil?


Is money the root of all evil? In answer to that question, I had originally intended to set a world record for the 'World's Shortest Article' and simply write 'NO!', then add the video, and post it to the interweb. But that would be far too lazy, and this is far too important. Plus there's a great story behind this weeks post, so allow me to set the scene: Let's start by imagining you are in our main office...

Welcome to our weekly company meeting. Like most businesses, each week we have a scheduled time where staff from all departments meet and report on what they achieved during the past week, as well as what will be happening in the near future. For us, this happens every Friday afternoon. It's the only time during the week when the phones are predictably quieter, a handy result of being located on the West Coast and marching to the tune of an East Coast market close. It's nice to catch up with everybody, sometimes we have several laptops out with team members Skyping in from all corners of the globe. There will usually be a birthday or two to celebrate-- so it's also a fantastic excuse to eat some cake and chocolate dipped strawberries if that's your kind of thing. It certainly does the trick for me!

At these weekly meetings our CEO, Mike Maloney, usually reads something to the team. It could be a current news item, or something that he has been working on for his new book. But most often, it will be a short snippet of wisdom from something Mike has found to be inspirational (A book called 'The Traveller's Gift' makes regular appearances -- Mike insists that our HR people hand out a copy to each new employee). It's always fun, and Mike gets a buzz from it because just 15 years ago, he would not have been capable of reading anything to any audience. If you've seen Episode 3 of Hidden Secrets Of Money you'll already know that Mike is dyslexic, but has managed to pretty much overcome the hurdle thanks to modern technology. He still practices what he is going to read a few times beforehand to become familiar with the piece, but there's no need to. He now reads better than most folks. Folks where I'm from, anyway!

Recently, Mike mentioned to me that he was going to read a section from his favorite book of all time - Ayn Rand's 'Atlas Shrugged'. Whoa. This was obviously not going to be a normal company meeting. Having just started to scrape the surface of explaining the dangers of socialism in Episode 5 of Hidden Secrets Of Money, it was obvious that this reading would make for an excellent video. It's also very timely when you consider the current events in Crimea, where Ayn Rand lived as a young girl. Yet another example of history echoing through the ages.

So, as that guy said in 'American Pie', God bless the internet. Here it is for you to watch at your leisure, grab yourself a chair and get comfy. There are so many great quotes from Ayn Rand in here that it can be a little overwhelming -- it really is a Tour De Force of logic and reason. Please watch it a couple of times, take it all in, and then here is a challenge for you: Pick your favorite lines, and add them to the comments below. Let's see which sections resonate the most.

I hope you enjoy being in our our company meeting. The vibe isn't usually this heavy, I promise. In fact, straight after Mike's reading we got stuck into the strawberries and sang Happy Birthday to him. More importantly, however, we closed out the meeting as we do every week by reading our mission together, out loud:

To enlighten the world that maximum prosperity can only be achieved through individual freedom, free markets, and sound money.

The Whole System Comes Crashing Down

"Once you are equipped with knowledge, you can recognize how the system plays you, and you can take control of your own financial future.

Playing their game is all fine and dandy - if you don't care to increase your financial intelligence or to invest wisely. But when the whole system comes crashing down, don't say I didn't warn you. After you've finished reading this book, if I've done my job correctly, you will never be able to look at our financial institutions the same way. Your context will be changed, and a new horizon as bright as the morning sun will be before you."

Alleged Gold & Silver Scams Abound


When you first set off to buy silver and gold products, there are many factors which will likely influence your decision making.

A product's price is most certainly one of the most important decision making factors. Gold and silver dealers know this, and therefore most dealers build their business models and advertising campaigns around low price offers.

Dealers understand that most people are trained to think that in a shopping comparison, lowest price wins.

This presumption should especially hold true when investors are comparing fungible or like-kind silver and gold bullion products from one dealer to the next.

Who doesn't want to save some fiat currency on a trade if they can?

Apparently there are hundreds of active silver and gold buyers who might prefer to actually receive the products they supposedly bought rather than simply saving a few bucks on their original purchase price.

Last week, The Orange County Register reported about hundreds of allegations against an online gold and silver bullion dealer located here.

The article states, "Consumers across the country have reported late or missing shipments of rare, silver and gold coins purchased from the Orange County precious-metals dealer. Clients say they have lost tens of thousands of dollars in investments, prompting some to take the business to court."

About.ag, a silver and gold internet blogger, has painstakingly documented this delayed delivery fiasco since its inception (click here for more details).

According to The Better Business Bureau, there are more than 200 complaints regarding the dealer over the last 3 years.

500 Ounces of Silver Could Buy a House in the Future

"After studying things like the tulip mania of 1637, the Nasdaq bubble of the 1990's, the history and the current fundamentals of gold and silver, and the history of financial cycles, it would not surprise me in the least to see less than 500 ounces of silver buy a median-price, single-family home sometime in the future."

Here Comes The Next Great Depression


"The only thing that is expanding in debt - is government debt. This is a very dangerous situation, the larger government grows compared to the GDP the more frictional jobs there are in an economy that don't produce goods and services that you and I buy. That basically extinguishes economic energy, it brings about less prosperity, not more."

Weimar Hyperinflation's 1000 Billion Mark Note


Sometimes there's just not enough time to fit everything we would like into an episode of Hidden Secrets Of Money. If we included everything, the episodes would end up running over an hour a piece and we'd risk losing the attention of our viewers. So it's nice to be able to come back and include some of the sections that are cut as bonus features, you can find a whole bunch of them on the HSOM website.

In this clip, Mike Maloney explores the Weimar Hyperinflation exhibit in the Bundesbank Money Museum. Watch as the notes start out at 1 Mark which actually had purchasing power, until the appearance of a 1000 Billion Mark note - that purchased next to NOTHING.
