-A listenervisited a new coin shop when traveling recently and inquired about his price for the Modern Commemorative silver dollars. He had some but asked him why he wanted them. He said that no one is interested in these and that the premium, about 25%, was a waste of money.Does Andy still think these are these great things to buy for long term investment?Also, does he think the more expensive ones are worth the extra money, some are $35-75 and others, like Statue of Liberty, are about $20.
-Good question:Andy,On Jan 14 at the bottom of the first hour, you gave a good tip on how to use treasury bonds/-t-notes /t-bills to offset a monthly payment of a mortgage.
The premise is to loan money to the government at a fixed interest rate and keep on rolling that loan into another loan until the interest rate is higher than that of your mortgage.
Question: Being that the US government is flat out broke and it keeps on borrowing to pay its bills. You mentioned that even then the possibility of a default is no within the real of possibility.
So even if the inflate the money supply to pay you back your loan in say 30 years (or whatever maturity you choose to loan out) wouldn’t those dollars you get back be less “worthy” than those you loan out at the beginning of the deal.
Yes can get your money back at the end of the term, but the quality of those dollars are diminished, even though you were able to offset the cost of your mortgage all along.
Can you comment on that erosion of your money as you loan the money to the government? It seems to me that on one hand you win, but on the other hand you still lose!
and so much more! Patrick and Andrew covered almost every email sent in, they not all posted here, so listen to the show for your answer.
