There’s a gold card then there’s a GOLD card…

Most of you are familiar with the American Express Gold Card.  I used to have one and maybe you did too.  Some time ago, I determined I didn’t need 25 credit cards in my wallet and stop using their card among others.  Really, I didn’t have that many but it seemed like it especially when billing time came around.

Now, I’d like to introduce you to a different kind of gold card.  It’s a Karatbars Gold card.  Karatbars is a unique way to save money accumulate wealth and help others do the same.  The basic card comes in 1, 2.5 and 5 gram sizes.  Every Karatbars gold card is 999.9 finest quality gold sourced from LBMA accredited refineries.  They are imprinted with unique DNA counterfeit protection.  Each gold bar is inserted into the Karatbars frame which is standard credit card size and covered by a safety laminate.  The card is provided with a black light authenticity signature on the front.  Pictured to the left is one of my Karatbars.

 

Karatbars gold is a guarantee of quality and value which is characterized by the high quality standards of the company.  Karatbars gold bullion cards guarantee stability and to serve in times of economic upheaval as a possible payment and also a medium of exchange.  Owning gold is smaller, more transaction friendly weights are strategically important.  It is wise to buy their small-units Karatbars bullion to protect capital.

Get Paid to Buy Gold?

It’s perfectly acceptable if you just want to systematically buy small amounts of gold as a customer either weekly or monthly–whatever your budget will allow.  But what if there were a way to get paid?  The good news there is and you can earn commissions with a free account assuming you like the product and share the views of many that gold is a good hedge against inflation and a weak dollar and you don’t mind sharing this product with friends, family and associates.  Commissions earned are are less with a free account and substantially more with a paid business package of which there are three levels.

In addition our team has created a marketing and sales system called Protection Through Gold.  There is a very reasonable monthly charge for this but when you see the value of high converting opt-in pages versus the income potential you’ll be more than thrilled at the possibilities.  There’s even a call center service available for an additional charge that will make and close sales for you.

Watch this space for future posts about Karatbars and Protection Through Gold.  In the meantime there are two links which will provide additional information should you be interested.  Go directly to Karatbars here:  https://karatbars.com/?s=akstever  You can open your free account here, watch videos with more information and also investigate branded cards which is a neat way to reward employees at Christmas parties or for promotional purposes.  There is a good selection of products most of which include the various sizes of gold bullion Karatbars Cards(1 gram, 2.5 grams and 5 grams).

In addition, I strongly recommend you watch Mike Maloney’s “Hidden Secrets of Money”.  It’s available on the Protection Through Gold website and also on You Tube.  You can watch six episodes which are about 30 minutes each.  Once you get an understanding of our financial system, you just might be slightly shocked and perhaps a little fearful of the future.  The purchasing power of a dollar in 1913 when the Federal Reserve was created is now only about 5 cents.  Imagine, one dollar in 1913 is now worth about 5 cents.  You can protect that purchasing power using Gold as a hedge.  The ultra-wealthy do it and now you can too.

Each Tuesday one of our top earners and leaders, Tammy Morrison, presents about a 30 minute webinar explaining the Karatbars opportunity with a Q & A at the end.  It starts promptly at 2pm Eastern Time/11am Pacific Time.  You’re cordially invited to attend every week on Tuesday’s with Tammy!  Knowledge is power.  Here’s the link to participate in the webinar:  www.zoom.us/j/7743599161

History Says Global Debt Levels Will Lead to Another Crisis

Jeff Clark, Senior Precious Metals Analyst, GoldSilver
OCT 20, 2017

It may feel like we’ll escape a debt crisis since, well, the world hasn’t ended in spite of runaway debt levels. Some of us hard money people feel like we’re taking crazy pills; how the heck can debt be so out of control, so completely unpayable, and yet the financial system keeps chugging along as if nothing’s wrong?

Well, history has a message for us: the current calm won’t last forever, because there is a direct link between government debt levels and the number of financial crises that occur. And since global debt levels are high—the second highest level in the past 150 years—it’s not exactly a stretch to conclude that another financial crisis is coming.

Analysts at Deutsche Bank recently released an extensive study that demonstrates the link between debt and crisis. One chart in particular screamed for attention.

They measured G-7 government debt levels, as a percent of GDP, and charted that figure against the number of crisis those countries have experienced. Here are the primary events they classified as a crisis or shock:

  • 15% fall in stocks
  • 10% decline in the country’s currency exchange rate
  • 10% fall in bonds
  • A sovereign default
  • 10% inflation rate

They logged every time a nation encountered any of these events within a one-year period, and compared that to government debt levels. It’s not hard to spot the correlation.

 

Since 1864, the higher government debt levels, the greater the number of countries hit by a financial crisis or shock. Even in the 1970s when debt was “low,” it rose steadily, indicating politicians were relying on debt to help solve their economic problems. And that reliance led to greater crises.

You can see that current G-7 government debt levels are at the second highest reading in at least 153 years. Are these countries really going to buck the historical trend and avoid any further financial crises or shocks? It would be borderline irresponsible to think so (hello, gold haters).

So how did we get into this debt spiral?

The Root Cause of Current Debt Levels

The simplest explanation is that governments spend more than they bring in. And since each year’s deficit is added to the debt, the total keeps going up and up. It’s so high now that it’s mathematically impossible to repay (at least in current dollars).

How is it that central bankers and politicians can continue this free-for-all spending? You can tie it to one thing…

The world made a final break from a gold standard in 1971, when President Nixon ended gold convertibility. Up to that point there was some kind of gold (or silver) monetary regime for literally centuries (the primary exception to a lid on spending was during periods of war as the chart shows).

Now the entire world is on a fiat currency system for the first time in recorded history. And a fiat currency system always leads to ever increasing debt and money printing, because politicians and central bankers have no built-in controls to prevent them from doing so. Need more currency? Just spend it anyway or print it.

I have a question for those who mock the gold standard, or believe the fiat system is superior: why have all of the following events occurred since the world severed its last monetary tie to gold in 1971?

  • UK property and secondary banking crisis, 1973-1975
  • US Recession and oil crisis, 1973-1975
  • US Recession, 1980
  • US Recession, 1981-1982
  • Numerous Emerging Market defaults, mid-1980s
  • US Savings and Loan mass failures, late 1980s/early 1990s
  • Nordic banking and economic crises, late 1980s
  • US Recession 1990-1991
  • Japanese asset price bubble bursting, 1992
  • Mexican Peso crisis, 1994
  • Asian financial crisis, 1997
  • Long-Term Capital Management crisis, 1998
  • Dot.com crash, 2000
  • US Recession, 2001
  • Housing market crash, 2007
  • Stock market crash, 2008
  • Great Recession, 2008-2009
  • Euro Sovereign crisis, 2010-2012

That’s 18 major financial crises in 46 years. An average of one every two-and-a-half years.

I don’t think it’s reasonable to assume we’ll escape another crisis. Government debt is simply too high, and history shows this makes crises much more likely, maybe even inevitable.

This is a primary reason Mike and I continue to buy gold regularly. In fact, while researching this article, I ordered another one of these.

I hope your portfolio is ready for the next financial shock that history says is on its way.

If you’re looking to protect your assets and soften the blow of inflation thanks to the central banks relentless printing of money consider a monthly purchase of small amounts of gold with a recognized German based world leader–Karatbars.  With Karatbars you can be a customer only or if you wish to join the marketing side of the company that is possible too but not mandatory.  To learn more click here.
