3 Reasons You Should Protect Your Wealth With Precious Metals

Precious metals such as silver, gold and platinum have long been hailed as the best recession proof assets. Many experts refer to them as the last true currencies. While economies all over the world continue to struggle, gold, silver and platinum continue to outperform almost all other asset types.
Here are 3 reasons posted by PR Newswire you should protect your wealth using precious metals:

Reason #1 – Paper Money Can No Longer Be Trusted

History according to CBS19 has shown over and over again that paper currencies will eventually become worthless. In volatile times you will notice the fall of a currency versus gold is quite dramatic. This is because unlike paper currency, gold is not at the mercy of the government.

There is only so much gold in the world. That means the government can’t produce more when the economy needs a boost. So unlike paper money, gold maintains its value. Being that more and more paper money is flooding the economy, you can expect gold to be a major player in economies all over the globe.

Reason #2 – Inflation Is Looming

Over the last 8 years the U.S. Money Reserve has pumped trillions and trillions of dollars into the economy according to goldnewsnetwork.com. The more money floating around in the economy, the less value it has. This of course is a recipe for inflation.

The great thing about precious metals such as gold is they can act as a hedge against inflation. That means your buying power won’t be affected by what’s going on in the economy. With the price of gold expected to rise in the near future, now is the time to get on board.

Reason #3 – Central Banks Are Stockpiling Their Gold Reserves

Central banks all over the world are started to stockpile their gold reserves. In particular, Eastern nations are starting to diversify by investing more and more into the yellow metal. If the biggest banks in the world see the importance of investing in gold, its safe to say you should follow suit.

FreedomPop is Expanding

FreedomPop is a company that offers 500 MB of data and 200 minutes of talk time a month, for free. They are the only company in the game to offer this, which makes them unique. They do offer paid month to month plans.

Well, the company is expanding. FreedomPop is run by T-Mobile, who is in turn run by the company Deutsche Telekom. DT holds 65% of the shares in T-Mobile. There is a spectrum auction scheduled for the week of March 15, 2016.

Furthermore, the biggest contenders for the auction have been taken out by other companies. Verizon, for instance, was issued a large fine by the FCC for a “supercookie” they were putting into users’ internet use. These cookies were meant to help direct targeted ads from Verizon and other companies who paid to have those ads show up.

FreedomPop has some of the best customer loyalty, and if this expansion goes well, it could mean more customers for the company, and more money on the bottom line. Though there are some who take advantage of the free plan, there are some who decide to go from the free plan to one of the paying plans; people who switch usually stay.

No matter how the customers react to the expansion, it’ll happen.

Thor Havlorssen Discusses Socialism and Bernie Sanders With Fox News

Thor Halvorssen of the Human Rights Foundation recently did an interview on Fox News with Trish Regan where he was asked about about socialism, its effect on human rights, and Bernie Sanders. The interview on ‘The Intelligence Report with Trish Regan’ began with a typical introduction and then Halvorssen was asked about the relation between socialism and violations of human rights. Thor Halvorssen quickly qualified the discussion by saying that countries that are not socialist can obviously also violate human rights and that just having a socialist government is not an automatic violation of rights. As long as there is a proper separation of powers, he said, and constitutional rights are enforced, a socialist government can be “perfectly OK”, and noted examples like Denmark, Norway, and Sweden. He then went on to say that the issue was when socialism is co-opted as cover by authoritarians. Socialism can easily be used to mask dictators and populists who will use socialism as an excuse and end up exploiting the country and taking money for themselves.

Trish Regan then turned the discussion back to Bernie Sanders by saying that she believes that Bernie supporters don’t really understand how socialism works as a system of government. Halvorssen countered by saying that many if not most democratic countries have some socialist policies and that although some people believe socialism, communism, and Marxism to be the same thing, this is incorrect and socialist policies can be well implemented and popular. Regan then tried to turn the discussion back to Halvorssen’s objections with socialism, asking what him to define his major objection to the way socialism is practiced in some countries. Halvorssen explained his major objections were not only the looting of wealth from a country by authoritarians, but the way trying to control prices causes shortages and crises. Halvorssen declared that he has also made the largest contribution possible to the Sanders campaign because Hillary had taken donations from many authoritarian governments.

Regan then went more personal and asked Halvorssen about personal experience with socialism. Halvorssen recounted that his father had been a political prisoner and his mother had been shot by the government of Hugo Chavez, and that his views on dictators were based on personal experience. He went on to say that in general he believes the important point is the rule of law is essential and socialism can work under that, however he doesn’t believe redistribution of wealth is the answer, rather the creation of more wealth is the best way forward.

George Soros Shares His Perspective On The Similarities Of The Current Market Crisis And That Of 2008.

For a long time, the European Union has been the cream of the world trade and regional unity. The Euro, the currency of the European Union, has been stronger than most of the currencies of the first world countries for quite some time now. But soon this might not be the case anymore. The European Union is caught up with numerous crisis at the moment that is threatening its unity and the strength if the Euro. The major problem that the union is facing is the Ukrainian crisis, where Russia is attacking the country. The existence of this crisis means that the European Union has lost control of its member states. This crisis threatens to divide the union into two factions. One faction supporting Ukraine and the other supporting Russia. There is also the current economic crisis that is affecting the world.

The current economic crisis is caused by China’s change in its economic growth model. China’ s currently relies on the manufacturing and production industries for it’s economic growth. The country is attempting to move on to a new model that relies on the services and consumption industries. This change has a very bad effect on the global markets as it has lead to instability of Chinese equities. Europe, which is badly affected by other crisis, will not be stable enough to go through the crisis if it does not act fast to resolve its internal crisis according to George Soros. He advises that the European Union works on the internal issues affecting it like the Ukrainian crisis, the Syrian crisis, the Greece debt problem and the British referendum if it wants to survive the crisis. Read his profile at Forbes.

George Soros is a very successful investor, entrepreneur, business person and philanthropist who is worth over $27 billion. This is the worth he has been able to acquire from his business enterprise, Soros Fund Management, one of the best hedge fund firms in the world. George Soros was born in Hungary, but later moved to the United Kingdom and later settled in the United States. He is one of the most prolific investors who has made billions of dollars through his investments. He is also a philanthropist who is concerned with promoting a democratic world. He founded the Open Society Foundation, an organization that supports democratic movements all over the world.

George Soros is also an economic analyst and a critic of poor economic policies.
George Soros says on Bloomberg that from his long-term experience in the business field, he can confuse that the current economic crisis and the 2008 crisis are similar. There is an increase in rates of interest in developing countries, and there are instabilities in the global stock markets. He asks investors to invest with extreme caution during this period of crisis.

Thor Halvorssen Offers His Opinion On Bernie Sanders

Famed human rights activist Thor Halvorssen went on Fox Business News and did a brief interview on his take on socialism and Democratic presidential nominee Bernie Sanders. The founder of the Human Rights Foundation based in New York, said that Bernie Sanders would be a much better presidential candidate than current Democratic party front runner Hilary Clinton.

Mr. Halvorssen blasted Hilary Clinton saying that she and her husband accept donations from dictatorial regimes from Saudia Arabia, Qatar and numerous other countries. He called accepting such donations disgraceful and raised doubts on Clinton’s stance against human rights abuse and dictatorships abroad. If Clinton accepts such donations how can she stand up these human rights violating regimes as president Halvorssen brought up during the interview.

Switching to Bernie Sanders Thor Halvorssen said that the Independent senator from Vermont is a much better choice than Hilary Clinton. Halvorssen would much rather see Bernie Sanders as the Democratic nominee because he does not accept any donations from dictatorial regimes. Despite being a socialist, Bernie Sanders stands up for human rights and does not tolerate abuses abroad. This stance and his actions are vastly different than Hilary Clinton’s. This is why Thor Halvorssen says on Twitter that he has actually backed senator Sanders’ campaign. He admitted that he has donated the maximum amount allowed to Bernie’s campaign.

Halvorssen also blasted GOP front runner Donald Trump by stating that the the billionaire thinks Vladimir Putin is okay. Putin is known for cracking down on dissidents and censoring the media as well as distorting it to suit his purposes. Thor believes that both front runners must take a stand against human rights abuse and dictators.

Thor Halvorssen admitted that Bernie Sanders’ policies represent a radical shift and new ideas that are not part of the American mainstream in politics. Mr. Halvorssen got into a discussion with the news anchor about a socialistic country and socialistic policy. Halvorssen states that socialist countries like Sweden and his native Venezuela redistribute wealth. He admitted that the problem with trouble spots like Venezuala is not the socialist policy but the dictators in charge there. Halvorssen states that many countries have some socialist elements in their public policies and governments. People should not be afraid of socialist polices, they already exist to an extent in the United States. The real threat is the elimination of freedom and failing to stand up to dictators and rogue regimes.

Organo Gold’s Creation of a Healthy Product

Coffee is a popular product that has been consumed for thousands of years. The product of coffee comes from grinding together beans that are then combined with hot water to create a bitter yet satisfying taste. With today’s technology, coffee can now be manipulated in such a way to be consumed in multiple different temperatures, flavors, as well as textures. Coffee can now be enjoyed as a delicious treat during the hot temperatures of the summer or be enjoyed as a welcomed hot beverage during the cold mornings in the winter. With the exponential growth in coffee, new niches are being formed including the niche of promoting a coffee that encourages healthy living.

One coffee in particular that has been encouraging healthy living is that of Organo Gold. Organo Gold was founded in 2008 by Bernardo Chua who is a Filipino businessman. Bernardo Chua started Organo Gold on the premise of creating a new brand of coffee that would be both delicious as well as promote the importance of healthy living. Bernardo Chua has extensive knowledge of the business industry and has extensive experience within the multilevel marketing industry. Within his knowledge and experience, Mr. Chua has created a new brand that not only provides delicious products, but also provides relief to any particular ailment. Bernardo Chua created this company on the premise of a secret ingredient that has never before been used in Western culture.

This secret ingredient is called Ganoderma which is a wood-like fungus that has been used in Eastern medicine for thousands of years. Ganoderma is now used by Bernardo Chua to promote healthy living as well as a delicious cup of coffee. One of the biggest improvements that Ganoderma plays a large role in is the promotion of weight loss. Ganoderma increases the levels of oxygen within the body which in turn increases the amount of weight lost through a natural process. In addition to weight loss, Ganoderma also controls inflammation within the body, boosts the immune system, as well as detoxes the entire body.

The wood-like fungus of Ganoderma is transformed into a powdery substance through a natural process through lacks both chemicals or any added ingredient. The powdery substance is then added to a number of Organo Gold products such as Organo Gold’s gourmet coffee, assortment of tea, as well as Organo Gold’s hot chocolate. Thanks to  Bernardo Chua, there is now a healthy way of consuming coffee.  Bernardo’s official website has even more.

The Collapse of the EU: an Invitation Wrapped within a Warning

 

If a lifetime could resemble a carefully constructed doctorate program – a program that promised the ne plus ultra of experiential instruction in the subjects of vigilance, reinvention, penetratingly astute social and economic observation, and epically successful wealth building – that lifetime degree program would look like the life of George Soros, legendary financier, Nazi and Communist occupation survivor, internationally influential thinker and philanthropist. Mr. Soros has not only learned how to survive, but thrive, even in uncertain times.

So when George Soros speaks on Bloomberg, he does from a depth and a breadth of experiences that make us, if we are smart, sit up and listen. Any mentor who has mastered life as Mr. Soros has might reasonably excuse himself to the private enjoyment of his fortune far from the public eye and the eschewing scrutiny of critics and commentators. But not Mr. Soros, who is, in fact, driven by more complex and compelling forces and motivations. Among them is the desire to warn, to teach, and to guide. Oh, and “to build vibrant and tolerant democracies whose governments are accountable and open to the participation of all people” (“About Us,” 2016).

Now Mr. Soros is warning of the imminent collapse of the European Union. At the root of the headline-grabbing prediction that has put George Soros back in the hot seat and spotlight is a fundamental belief in humanity and change. And like any good prophecy, the point is not to instill fear and a catatonic sense of “pessimism,” a word far too often associated with Mr. Soros’ views. Rather the point is to alert us to change course, while there’s still time.

Since the 2014 release of his book The Tragedy of the European Union: Disintegration or Revival? Mr. Soros’ message has become more timely and pressing. And people are listening. Soros, whose book and predictions have been the focus of numerous interviews, essays, and articles in major financial and popular news outlets, is predicting the end of the European Union as we know it.

Collapse? Really? Soros, who well knows that to understand the complex, you must understand subtext and context, has carefully monitored the Greek crisis, the immigration crisis, terrorist attacks in Europe, and a number of the crises, unprecedented in scope and consequence, conspiring to test the viability, strength, resilience, and cohesion of the European Union.

But all is not without hope, or opportunity. Soros is not a man who indulges in hopelessness, nor is he a man without a plan. He believes the key to the EU’s survival is an intelligent, planned, and humane approach to Europe’s new wave of refugees from Syria and other countries, an approach that would be financed through the use of long-term bonds and the EU’s “largely untapped AAA borrowing capacity” (Kollmeyer, 2016). Soros also believes that the key to the EU’s survival may well be Germany and the leadership of Angela Merkel. Soros notes that Merkel, whose views and actions have not always aligned with his own, correctly forecast the immigration crisis and saw the real possibility of an EU collapse. Soros believes that the real test for the continued existence and promise of open society in the EU may well be in the hands of “The Chancellor of the Free World,” and her country.

The beginning of the answer may simply lie in the full embrace of Soros’ powerful warning. When interviewed recently on the possibility of the collapse of the EU, one interviewer told Soros, “You paint a bleak picture.’ Mr. Soros responded “But it is a biased view and deliberately so. Recognizing a problem is an invitation to do something about it” (Schmitz, 2016). And so it is.
