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
-The cost of saving money
-Social Security: Andy explains how he would fix the Social Security problem; Bush openly admitted years ago that there was no money in the fund, only IOUs; the public has no idea what’s going on and the media doesn’t cover it.
-Globalism vs. Nationalism: This election is all about this.
-Hillary’s difficulties on the campaign trail
-If Donald Trump is elected things will be bad; if Hillary is elected things will be worse.
-There’s a “so called” debate on TV tonight; Andrew ponders how rigged this debate is. Will it just be a 15 minute commercial for Hillary and a 15 minute bashing of Trump? A listener write in:Tonight is not one of the 3 presidential debates. You can find the dates here:
Tonite, Matt Lauer from the Today show is going to interview the 2 candidates.
-Meetings in Mexico: Donald went to Mexico, but where was Hillary?
-What’s so wrong with Nationalism? Nothing, according to Andrew. He explains why and how it strengthens countries and it’s people.
-Question from a listener:Wondering what Andy thinks about manufactured homes. We might consider buying a nice one with features common to traditional construction, and putting it on a slab foundation on acreage outside the city limits. We understand that these homes depreciate rather than appreciate, but feel like the land itself would appreciate and we don’t have plans on relocating again, so we might not care much that the home will depreciate.
-What happened at the G20 meeting?
-Question from a listener:Headline: Deutsche Bank Refuses Delivery Of Physical Gold Upon Demand . . . some are saying the collapse of this bank will, economically, be 4-6 times worse than when Lehman Brothers went down. A British speaker described how supermarkets place orders daily, trucks with supplies arrive early the next morning, but if the system is interrupted and money can’t travel electronically, then there’s no more food on the shelves, and this is why governments are recommending people be prepared with stored food and water, they know it’s coming. (Also, major shipper for Costco and many others, Hanjin, now bankrupt.)
It was reported that the US Mint halted Silver Eagle coin production due to lack of demand, certainly untrue, but one commentator states that when gold and silver delivery stops, the economy will come crashing down, could we be FINALLY actually looking at a financial reset that would give them a good reason to postpone the Presidential Election?
-Question from a listener:If one takes possession of their wealth with gold coins and need to store for safe keeping then could you discuss where do I do it and how do I ensure I am the only one going to keep possession of them. My imagination could run wild as to having to build a booby trapped hiding place, but realistically what is the best way to store them at home, how much would it cost to secure them and would I need to insure them. Could I expect that an insurance company would cover a loss if I tried to do it right?
-Question from a listener:Could I solve America’s financial issues if someone just dumped a ton of gold at the Federal Reserve? What would having that lump of metal really mean?
-Question from a listener:I got married to a Japan national about a year ago and she recently got her green card. I was wondering if she should apply for a social security number? Currently she is not working and may work in the future. Do you need a social security number for tax or working purposes or is a green card sufficient? What are the benefits and disadvantages? I ask this because I know you did not get social security numbers for your daughters.
-Comment from a listener:I left once a message on your form about calculating my personal social security contributions in the past 30 years. I compounded them according to the nasdaq real fluctuation for these years to see how much I would compound if I just invested myself in S&P 500 . to my horror I found out I would have 4 million dollars. Additionally if I die my family would inherit it. Now I will receive $900/mo, and when I die the benefits will stop. I would have to live over 200 years to receive what I should have compounded. I think it would be good for everyone to run this exercise to see how much we are ripped off by the SS program.
