Some call it a scam, but like it or not, the value of gold, is there. That’s what all the salespeople on TV commercials are telling you. Then again, some say the value of gold, is not rising. Both these perspectives can’t be right, …. can they?
There’s a new TV “reality show” about a group unemployed Oregonians who (living with a supposed 10.6 % unemployment rate – actually, it’s higher), have pooled their resources, liquidated what they don’t need, purchased heavy equipment.
They’re headed out to Alaska, to find and mine gold. As with most “reality shows” there’s something a bit unreal about most of the “reality shows”; it’s the constant conflict going on that gives it away, but conflict seems natural here; these families have taken a big gamble; they’ve gone into predator country, …. they’ve put their whole lives on the line …… this is bear country they’ve moved into.
Food and gasoline, two staples which impact the cost of everything you purchase, are not considered in the CPI (Consumer Price Index). That’s also a significant part of the (gold) scam.
There are those who don’t want you to really get it; I don’t mean gold! They don’t want you to understand; they want it to creep up on you, realizing it only after it’s too late to do anything about it.
How can all that be, you ask? Look at it in a different way: if you figure what an oz. of gold would purchase 100 years ago, and what it will purchase today, nothing’s changed. Oh, there has been cheaper labor, and goods mass-produced by slaves, machines, or 3rd world wage-slaves and all this make things seem like there’s a big difference, but in reality, a man’s nice tailored suit costs now, the same as it did then.
April, last year, I posted a tip about finding gold and have been amazed at how many hits it has gotten; no one’s compensated me for it, but …. Truth is, the value of gold is not rising! It’s that the dollar is plummeting!
If you want to survive this, you’d better be, reorienting your way of thinking ….. As always, for the most part, people who’ve become wealthy, have done so, not by how much their salary is but rather on how much they’re willing to invest, how hard they’re willing to work and how little they spend.
Here’s your own reality check. Remember the line, ….. during the Klondike gold rush!
