THE REAL WORLD OF MONEY
Andrew Gause may just be the top man anywhere for the highest quality analysis into the world of money we all live in. Andrew is a currency historian, an internationally recognized expert on the United States monetary system. He’s written two books, “The Secret World of Money” and “Uncle Sam Cooks the Books”. You can order these books as well as speak to Andrew personally. As a One Radio Network listener, you’ll have highest priority in his phone time. His # is 800.468.2646
-What is money? Merits of money backed by tangibles vs. pure money backed by edict.
-Adjusting demand for money by regulating the supply. Any debt instrument eligible for discount can be monetized. Our money system is based on debt.
-30 years ago on 10/12/1987, the bubble burst and the stock market dropped 22.6%. US was 2.3 million in debt. Today, stock market is 10 times higher and the debt and money supply are 10 times higher. What are the implications?
-Americans are taught 3 things: live debt free, pay debts off early, and save your money. What’s wrong with that advice?
-Technology makes things cheaper, so general tendency is for prices is to fall. Prices don’t reflect price inflation as a result of more money in circulation.
-Why is the stock market going up?
-Don’t ignore stock fundamentals. When a company needs to sell 4 times more electric cars than they can produce to break even, does it make sense to buy that company’s stock?
-How can you lose buying gold and silver?
-Is a crypto dollar inevitable?
-Before crypto currency came out, 30% of $100 dollar bills were sold to Russians. Russia will be the first to issue their own crypto currency.
-Cryptos have no central bank. Andy thinks it’s a downfall – there’s no one to lean against the wind. Andy predicts crypto rubles will have a central bank.
-Did the CIA start Bitcoins? Andy says the world will get a new currency, it just won’t be new to us. But our currency is being rejected just because it’s American.
-US domestic oil production is just about self sufficient. We’ll be exporting oil and get paid in yuan.
-Intellectual property will surpass oil in the US. US dollar will still be the reserve currency, but China is gaining a foothold.
-Yuan pricing of oil is coming, because of the Chinese compelling the Arabs to do so. Oil trading will be priced in yuan, creating less demand for US dollars.
-Soros donated $18 billion to his Open Society Foundations, which supports Black Lives Matter and Antifa.
-Sylvia has listened to Andy for 20 years. Sends her appreciation for his statement on Bitcoin.
-Amazon trying to locate HQ2. Bruce asks: why is Amazon is considered a tech company? He would short Tesla stock a million dollars if he could afford the margin calls.
-Will owning some real estate help to protect one’s wealth? Yes, but the wild card is how much property tax is imposed.
-None of the hurricane reconstruction counts as new construction.
-Goldmint ICO (initial coin offering). Physical gold as an ETF – a crypto currency backed by gold. Could work, until greed sets in.
-Vegas shooting story keeps changing. Conspiracy theories abound. Sound recordings show multiple guns. Photos of bullet casings on top of the shooter’s pool of blood after he shot himself in the head. The official story doesn’t have continuity.
-CIA urging Trump to delay release of 3,000 documents from JFK assassination for 25 more years. CIA needs to protect their reputation. Photo analyst Robert Groden showed JFK autopsy photos had been doctored – had to have been someone within the government that changed the photos. Couldn’t have been the mob – they didn’t have access.
-Andy will be painting his office with paint from ECOS that shields against EMFs, ELFs. $400/gallon. Has 3 cell towers near his office.
-Bullion vs. rare coins. With much higher commissions to sell numismatic coins, Wayne says it doesn’t make sense to invest in numismatics. Andy says supply and demand dictate value. For something that is very rare, the difference between what you buy it for and sell it for will be much greater than for something common. See Dr. B’s study, available from Andy, of Rare Coins vs. Bullion, for a demonstration of performance. It shows 7 times the return on select numismatic coins,
-The gold, silver, platinum, and uranium on earth originated from stars crashing together.
-A quantum leap is the smallest space known to man.
-Kentucky is joining the list of broke states. Texas and South Carolina aren’t on the bankrupt list. Most bond investors are individuals, not entities, and will take the hit when states start declaring bankruptcy.
-What does it mean for the average guy that the IMF removed the dollar as the world’s primary trading currency?
-Will we have a war on paper with China? Dollar will be worth less, offset by US oil exports and intellectual property value.
-Is the meme of US energy independence being overblown?
-Stu says natural gas in North America is less than half its price of most places other than the Middle East.
-Bruce says covering the land with solar panels to fend off the CO2 climate change scare is actually heating up the earth magnitudes faster. Solar panels are only 15-25% efficient, the rest of the sun’s energy hitting the panels is converted directly into heat. Bruce says LMAO at Tesla. But Andy says solar panels are getting more efficient.
-JT is reading Eustace Mullins’ Secrets of the Federal Reserve. Why did Teddy Roosevelt enter the race sinking President Taft, providing victory to Wilson, and setting the stage for World War I? Rockefeller, Carnegie, and JP Morgan provided funding and Teddy Roosevelt came in 3rd, similar to Ross Perot drawing off votes from the candidate of choice and thereby electing Clinton. Roosevelt did it because he was paid to do it – his wealth magnified tremendously. Wilson was bought and paid for.
-Must have a budget by December 8 or we don’t get tax reform. Vote is tomorrow. Obamacare is kicked down the road 2 years.
-Repealing subsidies is the death knell of Obamacare. Insurance and drug companies are the beneficiaries of Obamacare. They’re willing to deal now after being threatened with withdrawn subsidies.
-McCain is RINO – Republican In Name Only. Who does he get money from?
-150 Sears stores in Canada are gone.
-and much more.

Quoting the notes:
“-30 years ago on 10/12/1987, the bubble burst and the stock market dropped 22.6%. US was 2.3 million in debt. Today, stock market is 10 times higher and the debt and money supply are 10 times higher. ”
My comment – 2.3 million in US debt sounds very low and certainly todays debt is more than 10x this. Are these numbers correct?
