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 Chinese Stock Market: What in the world happened the other day? Patrick plays a clip of Richard Fisher, the former President and CEO of the Dallas Federal Reserve commenting on the stock market shutdown in China. He sees it as a “non issue”. Interesting.

-Saudi Arabia is not a friend of the United States. Andrew explains.
-Donald Trump is a fan of tariffs which is one big reason Andrew endorses him
-Did Berkshire Hathaway really lose 11 billion last year? Not until it sells; it’s only had a loss of value

-Hilary is up 20 points, but what about all the skeletons? “It doesn’t matter”, says Andrew “when you’re above the law.” He elaborates.
-What was the number #1 killer last year? And we’re worried about guns? Really?
-Andrew gives advice to a listener who asks the following question: My husband works for a small government entity w/ low pay but great insurance. His ‘retirement investments’ are put into a 457 account which he cannot touch until he retires. After losing so much in 2008 he moved what was left, about $80,000, into bonds (that too, cost him several thousand).
With the cost of insurance, and while my health is currently pretty good, his is not.
He is 68. I’m 63. He wants to retire but we don’t see how we can afford it. I think there are many people in similar situations. These 457 accounts are a bugger, and who knows if anything is actually in his state retirement fund, much less SSI!!
The question: Should he retire, pull out what he can from the 457, and both of us work at whatever, OR stay in a job he mostly enjoys until I’m 65, OR longer??
A glitch is that his retirement, not the 457 funds, will not be available to me if he passes-on while on the job. He has to be fully retired and drawing those funds before I’m eligible to them.
-Why were no silver dollars minted after 1904, then over 86 million Morgans minted in 1921 AND 1 million Peace dollars?
-Question from a listener: I just saw the movie “The Big Short”. I’m amazed by the amount of corruption across the board especially with the rating agencies. Were the rating agencies (Moody’s, Standard & Poor’s, etc.) ever held accountable for their part in the deception? If not, are they still pulling the same thing with bonds right now: rating junk as AAA?
-Lieutenant-General André Blattmann has issued a warning to the Swiss people that society is dangerously close to collapse and advised those not already armed as part of the Swiss Army reserve to take steps to arm themselves. Blattmann has been head of the Armed Forces since, 1 March 2009 and his words carry very significant weight in a country in which several Citizens’ Initiative referenda against burqas and mosques have proven enormously popular as concerns grow about immigration and Islamisation. Andrew talks about military service and guns in every household.
and so much more!!
