"The best way to destroy a Capitalistic System is to debase the currency."How do you debase a currency? By dropping more units of currency into circulation-- more money without increasing value. And what are we doing now? Printing more money, coining more money. Over the last fifteen years we've dropped exponentially more money into the system (an internal boost) than ever before. This drops the value per unit; and in our case this is magnified by the fact that our dollar value is not only not increasing, but it's dropping by itself.
This is similar to a body trying to find nutrition from within it's own system--sure, for a time there might be some fat to burn, but burning more and more fat to create energy has serious long term effects. Pretty soon muscle is eaten away. Then selective organs fail, then death. What is needed for the growth and perpetuation of any organic system is to add energy from external sources, not internal. What do you do when you get sick? Take medicine. You don't sit around waiting for your own body to produce it! This is what would create more value in the dollar as well.
How can we so flippantly do this? Because after 1965 our dollar was no longer based on gold or silver. It's made of and based on non-precious metals and paper. Thus, we could just say: Poof! There's more money!- and no one would be the wiser. To the common guy, he had his 'legal tender'. He didn't care whether it was based on gold or seashells or tulips or cow dung. So long as he could buy his stuff, it didn't matter. Oh, but it does. And we're going to start seeing this really soon. Why do you think that gold always shoots up in times like this? Because it (and silver) are the two things that have always retained value and stably stood the fluctuations of political change. And gold is reaching the stratosphere as investors realize the dollar is, at the least for now, and at the worst for a long time, collapsing.
And now they're going to print even more to 'help' get out of THIS.
Brace yourselves, people. If any of you, or your families, have more than $100,000 in any one bank, move the excess to another bank. Get every penny of your deposit FDIC insured. Do it now.
