A Simple Example That Should Make It Crystal Clear That ALL Fiat Currency Today is COUNTERFEIT Money

If you had kept $20,000 in a bank savings account since 1913, you would still only have $20,000 dollars in your bank account. But remember that in 1913, one would have been able to buy a very large house with $20,000 whereas today, one can not even buy a decent new car with $20,000. Obviously, the nominal amount of dollars has no meaning and accumulating significantly more dollars does not make one richer as many American foolishly believe today. To buy the same $20,000 house one could buy in 1913, since bankers have destroyed 98% of the purchasing power of the 1913 dollar with their counterfeiting efforts over the last 100 years, one would now need 50X the amount of 1913 $20,000 dollars today, or a whopping $1,000,000 2013 dollars just to buy the same house that $20,000 could have afforded you in 1913.

Another way of stating that is even if you had $999,999 2013 dollars versus only $20,000 1913 dollars, you would still be poorer today than you were in 1913, an astounding fact.

Now imagine you had converted your $20,000 into gold in 1913. In 1913, gold was priced at $18.92 an ounce. Therefore $20,000 would have bought 1,057 ounces of gold. Instead of holding $20,000 in the bank since 1913, had you converted this COUNTERFEIT money in the form of US dollars into the REAL money of gold and simply held 1,057 ounces of gold in a vault (granted one outside of the US) since 1913, your 1,057 ounces of vaulted gold would now be worth 1,057 ounces * 1,580 an ounce = $1,670,060 2013 dollars. And when gold reaches $5,000 an ounce, these 1,057 ounces will increase from $1,670,060 2013 dollars to $5,285,000 future-year dollars. I’ve actually told a class full of 10-year old children that hadn’t yet been exposed to the re-education process this very example and asked them what would they want today given the following choice: $20,000 of USD or $20,000 of gold? 100% of them answered $20,000 of gold because this example makes the decision so clear and so simple.
