Quote — Norm Franz on Gold, Silver and Debt

Norm Franz takes some quality time out to pose for a photo

Norm Franz — Author and great quo­ta­tion com­pos­er

Gold is the mon­ey of kings, sil­ver is the mon­ey of gen­tle­men, barter is the mon­ey of peas­ants — but debt is the mon­ey of slaves ”

  • Norm Franz (Author, 2001)

Norm Franz is an author and con­cerned about mon­ey. He is also con­cerned about reli­gion and scrip­tures which are not so applic­a­ble to me. But what I can say is that this quote is bang on! It is a mas­ter­ful quote. It is lift­ed from his book Mon­ey and Wealth in the New Mil­len­ni­um (2001).

A much sim­pler ver­sion of the phrase exist­ed for hun­dreds (if not thou­sands) of years before in the form of “Gold is the mon­ey of Kings”.

By buy­ing Gold you can start to get out of our debt based mon­e­tary system…Before it collapses…Which it only a mat­ter of time now…

I think that says it all.

The Gold Silver Ratio Explained

what is the Gold Silver Ratio, what does it mean, and why is it useful?

The gold sil­ver ratio explained

Today we are going to return to one of the old chest­nuts of the pre­cious
met­al invest­ing world and explain the rela­tion­ship between the two key
met­als gold and sil­ver. Specif­i­cal­ly we will give the answer to the
ques­tion of what is the Gold Sil­ver Ratio mean­ing?

As well you know, gold and sil­ver have been used for the last five
thou­sand years odd as “real mon­ey” and they have always had a tight
rela­tion­ship. Today in our mod­ern world the cen­tral plan­ers have weaned us
onto a paper worth­less cur­ren­cy (aka fake, or more tech­ni­cal­ly fiat
cur­ren­cy
), while they (I guar­an­tee you) are buy­ing and stor­ing up all the
gold and sil­ver they can find with both arms, and feet.

This rela­tion­ship is based on their scarci­ty and how much of it was com­ing
out of the ground — Obvi­ous­ly if one is much more com­mon (Sil­ver) than
the oth­er (Gold), then it is going to be worth less.

Through­out his­to­ry this rela­tion­ship (ratio) has remained fair­ly con­stant
at some­where between twelve to one, and six­teen to one.

So in oth­er words you would need twelve ounces of sil­ver to buy one ounce
of gold. Or Gold was twelve times more valu­able than sil­ver. Some­times you
would need six­teen ounces of Sil­ver to buy one ounce of Gold.

The Gold Silver Ratio Calculation Method

The ration between gold and Silver allows us to better understand market sentiment - and where it may be out of line

Gold Sil­ver Ratio Cal­cu­la­tion

So what is the Gold Sil­ver Ratio today? Well for that we sim­ply do the
sim­ple Gold Sil­ver Ratio Cal­cu­la­tion — Divide the cur­rent USD price of
Gold, into the cur­rent USD price for sil­ver. This gives us 1,350 divid­ed
by 22.6 which gives us a ratio of 59.7. So let’s call it 60! This is today
as of this writ­ing — This will change dras­ti­cal­ly in the future and I
invite you to revis­it this page five years from now!

This means that today we would need 60 ounces of Sil­ver to buy one sin­gle
ounce of Gold. That means the ratio is very high, and at some point it
will revert back to the his­tor­i­cal mean (as me men­tioned above, some­where
between twelve and six­teen).

See this ten year Gold Sil­ver ratio his­tor­i­cal chart here:

Start allo­cat­ing some of your invest­ing mon­ey today in some Sil­ver to
com­pli­ment your Gold in your per­son­al Pre­cious Met­als hold­ings — would be a
very smart thing to do. So don’t delay! Start to action that task today!

Inflation — The Most Unjust of Taxes

The Romans were masters of debasing currency, or coinage as it was back then

Clipped Roman Sil­ver coins — Debase­ment alive and well long, long ago

Most peo­ple, myself includ­ed, have been sly­ly brought up to nev­er think about infla­tion as a form of direct gov­ern­ment tax­a­tion. But that is exact­ly what it is. Make no mis­take about that.

You see long ago (in days of olde, when Knights were bold), it became clear that once you start tax­ing peo­ple above the for­ties rate, at about 45% and above peo­ple start to squeal. The Kings, mon­archs, princes, and Dukes need­ed rev­enues to fund their mani­ac wars. It became clear that you just can’t keep notch­ing up the rate of tax­a­tion — much to the both­er­a­tion of the rul­ing class­es, as they would just revolt — and that was pret­ty bor­ing sit­u­a­tion to deal with.

I did­n’t take long for them to realise that all they had to do what debase the cur­ren­cy. A tech­ni­cal term for remov­ing some of the mon­ey from the mon­ey itself. Tech­ni­cal­ly it’s called steal­ing. If you tried this they would throw you in jail.

Back in the day a wedge would be cut out of the coins that were actu­al­ly made of gold, sil­ver and mix­es there­of. If the lord of the manor need­ed more mon­ey he would just legal­ly” debase the coin (cur­ren­cy of the day).

Back then it was bleed­in’ obvi­ous that some­one had hacked a chunk out of the gold coin. The more sly rulers would actu­al­ly replace the met­als with oth­ers.

Today, how­ev­er the con­trol lords have reached the ulti­mate form of debase­ment Nir­vana. This is why it can­not last. We are all total­ly blind to the debase­ment. There are two ways that are over­lords man­age this debase­ment:

  • Mon­ey Print­ing (so-called Quan­ti­ta­tive Eas­ing)
  • Frac­tion­al Reserve Bank­ing

so to con­clude — Infla­tion is used and manip­u­lat­ed by Gov­ern­ment to it’s own ends for at least half a mil­len­ni­um and that is a hard drug to give up.

We no longer have a sound eco­nom­ic finan­cial sys­tem — It has long been replaced by a dys­func­tion­al Ponzi Scheme.

Make ready your plans.

Stop Thief!” — I am Being Robbed Blind!

We are surrounded by the Thievery Coporation - arm yourself with knowledge, a plan and take action now!

The Mas­ter Thief — But just who is it?

Most of humankind are being fleeced every­day and for the most part they are not even aware of it. Let me elab­o­rate if I may. In fact this has gone on for so long (longer than any­one alive can remem­ber), and so con­sis­tent­ly that peo­ple now think that this is nor­mal. How­ev­er, I am here to tell you — this is any­thing but.

Ques­tion: What was the price of an ounce of Gold in USD on May 1st 1933?

Answer: 20.67 USD/Ounce

Ok, so anoth­er ques­tion — just to make the point.

Ques­tion: What was the price of an ounce of Gold in USD on May 1st 2013?

Answer: 1,400 USD/Ounce (approx.)

So what’s the deal here?

The point is eas­i­er to under­stand if we invert the num­bers and take the rec­i­p­ro­cal (i.e.divide 1/[gold-price]). Refer to the fol­low­ing table:

Gold Price-Change Overview (1933 – 2013)

Gold Price-Change Overview (1933 – 2013)

Now it’s a bit clear­er to see what is going on. In 1933 one US Dol­lar would buy you 1/20th on an ounce of pure gold.

But if you try that today, you are only going to get 1/1400 on ounce of Gold.

Struth, I have been robbed! And you have been unless you took the time to buy a lit­tle Gold and/or Sil­ver.

Back in 1933 the US Dol­lar was real­ly pret­ty valu­able (com­pared to today at least!).

So just how do you think this grand theft took place? Have a pon­der and I will cov­er more next time. Till then, “Keep Stackin’ ” …

Take Action — NOW!

This may be your last chance to get in on the Gold mar­ket. The prices are
com­ing down, and although they could drop as low as 1,000 USD/Oz it is most
unlike­ly.

Check out the one year chart here:

Gold gets hammered

Gold Char 1 year to date

If you are already in it could be seen as depress­ing — but on the oth­er
hand it is a great oppor­tu­ni­ty to stock up. So don’t delay, Buy Today!
Here we see Gold at almost a 30% dis­count from it’s peak. When it comes
back it will blast through the 1,800 bar­ri­er of old.

This is a long term game. This is not trad­ing, or a quick buck. This is
preser­va­tion of wealth and build­ing a future. You should be think­ing five
to ten years into the future from here.

What will you be doing and how well will you be liv­ing in 2018?

Think about that for a while and then “Take Action!”.

Quote — Ayn Rand on Destroyers, Money and Gold

Author, Playwright, novelist, amatuer philosopher, and essayist

Ayn Rand

When­ev­er destroy­ers appear among men, they start by destroy­ing mon­ey, for mon­ey is men’s pro­tec­tion and the base of a moral exis­tence. Destroy­ers seize gold and leave to its own­ers a coun­ter­feit pile of paper. Paper is a mort­gage on wealth that does not exist, backed by a gun aimed at those who are expect­ed to pro­duce it. This kills all objec­tive stan­dards and deliv­ers men into the arbi­trary set­ter of val­ues. Gold was an objec­tive val­ue, an equiv­a­lent of wealth pro­duced. Paper is a check drawn by legal loot­ers upon an account which is not theirs: Watch for the day when it bounces, marked “account over­drawn.” ”

  • Ayn Rand (Alisa Zinov’yev­na Rosen­baum)

Quote — JP Morgan on Gold

JP Morgan - Showing uus all that tings don't really change...

JP Mor­gan him­self. Any rela­tion to Cap’n Mor­gan?

Gold is Mon­ey. Every­thing Else is Cred­it”

  • JP Mor­gan (New York Banker, Decem­ber 18 and 19 1912)

So there you have it. Straight from the hors­es mouth.

And what is real­ly inter­est­ing here is how this quote came about. This was not some sim­ple quip on the street, or over a glass of wine too many after din­ner impress­ing friends. No Siree!

This my lit­tle chums, was deliv­ered straight from the hors­es mouth to con­gress when he was being cross-exam­ined by a “spe­cial com­mit­tee” for bank fix­ing which was going on back then! Or, in their words Appoint­ed for the Pur­pose of Inves­ti­gat­ing an Alleged Mon­ey Trust in“Wall Street.”

You see back then there was a strong sus­pi­cion that the bankers were col­lud­ing (Noh say it aint so! Gasp, shock, hor­ror. Not like LIBOR or some­thing?!), and this was called the “Mon­ey Trust”. This was before the Fed­er­al Reserve, but about the time of the Jekyll Island stuff (see here).

For those inter­est­ed, I have a tran­scrip­tion of said JP Mor­gans Tes­ti­mo­ny right here before the “Bank and Cur­ren­cy Com­mit­tee of the House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives”. I invite you to notice that Jamey Dimon is much more smug these days (did you know that he is a bub­ble? So he is not just mak­ing the bub­bles, he actu­al­ly is a bub­ble him­self ;.).

Anoth­er lit­tle bit of bunk — Mr Mor­gan was almost 75 years young when the Titan­ic sank. He had his own pri­vate suite and prom­e­nade deck on the Titan­ic. He was sup­posed to join her for her maid­en voy­age but can­celled last minute, spar­ing him the fate of many of his oth­er mil­lion­aires bud­dies.

So there you go geezer — “Plus ça change, …” and all that… Things have not changed one bit…
