THE REAL WORLD OF MONEY
Andrew Gause may just be the top man anywhere for the highest quality analysis into the world of money we all live in. Andrew is a currency historian, an internationally recognized expert on the United States monetary system. He’s written two books, “The Secret World of Money” and “Uncle Sam Cooks the Books”. You can order these books as well as speak to Andrew personally. As a One Radio Network listener, you’ll have highest priority in his phone time. His # is 800.468.2646
-What is the basis of Andy’s prediction of an impending perfect storm?
-We’ve always had boom and bust cycles and unintended consequences. Now looking at unintended consequences of not enough money and too much debt. Fed has spent a decade monetizing money based on debt, not productivity. GDP productivity hasn’t gone up in proportion to increase in money.
-Russian thing is losing steam. Now the meme is that President Trump is unbalanced and not fit for office. Mention of 25th Amendment in the air.
-All the elements that could create an ugly situation are there.
-Unsettled populace. Wages haven’t risen. $13 trillion in household debt. Opiod crisis. Self-medicating. MZM asset growth.
-Fed thought they could stop the downturn and restore confidence in the mortgage-backed security (MBS) market by buying MBS. So their balance sheet got loaded up with MBS. But even after the liquidity crisis was over, they kept reinvesting money back in MBS.
-John Kennedy grew up seeing all the dirty money. Bucked the establishment in his presidency. Halted Bay of Pigs operation. The same names involved in the JFK assassination were seen in Watergate, which got Nixon driven from office. President Trump is following the same path of bucking the establishment. Will he be driven from office?
-Mnuchin went to Fort Knox and said all the gold is still there. But is the gold the same weight and fineness, and the same quality down to the bottom of the stacks? Who does it all belong to? Is it pledged to someone?
-Laurie asks about the new Chinese-created ACChain crypto currency becoming the SDR-related world currency that will allow the international banking elite to digitize every tangible asset on earth and then exert total control over all of it.
-What gives the dollar value is international acceptance. No gold backing it now. Economists can’t agree on what money is anymore.
-Gold became valued because no one could monopolize or control it.
-Defense is the 23 cents per dollar left in the budget after the 77 cents for entitlements are taken out.
-Ray Dalio and Lord Rothschild, heads of the world’s biggest hedgefunds, are concerned about internal and external conflict impairing efficiency. See a fight to the death in President Trump’s future.
-Morgan asks how you pay off a loan with a bank note aka currency issued as debt? You’re not paying it off, you’re discharging it. You’re paying off your debt instrument with another debt instrument.
-Looking through definitions in Black’s Law Dictionary.
-Bruce says the Fed just doesn’t understand. “The silver is mine and the gold is mine, saith the Lord of hosts.”
-State and local government pension funds are short $7 trillion as of today.
-The US debt ceiling was suspended for years. Congress has to pass a clean debt increase that allows Congress to borrow additional money, with no strings attached. We haven’t been able to borrow since March. Need to restructure to long-term obligations.
-New home sales crash following plunge in housing formations.
-Riots last night in Phoenix over Trump’s rally. Is Soros financing behind that?
-University of Texas removed 4 Confederate statues off their Austin campus. If all racists statues are removed, will any be left?
-Listener asks why he should do business with Andy’s company SDL Numismatic Properties rather than another coin company.
-If a ORN listener wins the $700 million Powerball lottery, what should he/she do? Do $70 million in numismatics, hedge the rest. A financial planner would say the safest investment to buy is US Treasuries, corporate bonds, or an annuity.
-What security protocols does Andy recommend for computer usage and coin storage? A sneaker net which requires a physical input device or disk to access the hard drive. No wireless or wi-fi.
-Andy makes it clear that he abhors racism. Though he says let them reveal themselves, don’t muzzle them.
-Listener shares information about colonial patent deeds. A patent deed prevents the government from stealing the property for unpaid taxes. You really owned your land in those days.
-Joe says the book “Big Business and Hitler” will be available this fall. The boys funded both sides and the winner made sure the loser pays.
-Visa is offering a $10,000 reward to businesses that refuse to accept cash in the future. Banks are issuing a suspicious activity report (SAR) for cash transactions over $3,000 that a teller finds suspicious. SAR is a different form than what is used for cash transactions exceeding $10,000. Police are allowed to seize the cash as probable cause that a crime has been committed.
-Beyonce and Jay-Z bought their $52.8 million Bel Air mansion with a mortgage. Monthly payments of $52,000 for 30 years. They could have paid cash, but used debt as a blessing. Do they listen to The Real World of Money?
-Does Andy have a preference for $20 St. Gauden’s gold pieces versus a $20 Liberty head gold pieces? Andy likes the Liberty coin because of the steep increase in value for the next higher grade. Liberty offers more opportunity. Buy the best you can buy and the rarest you can buy for the least premium. Use the type coin as your pricing point.
