Over the last ten years, governments around the world have done hard-working citizens a massive disservice. The average person hasn’t been able to get ahead economically.
On the surface, the reasons for this seem obvious. The financial crisis of 2008 shook the global economy, and we’ve been recovering ever since. Of course, wages are going to be lower!
But peel back the curtain, and you soon realize that’s not an explanation at all. We’ve had financial catastrophes in the past, but the average person always became wealthier over the course of decades.
Not this time. Over the last ten years, we’ve seen the emergence of financial repression – a system governments use to borrow at rates below inflation. It is essentially a tax on the productive citizens of the country. When the state can raise finance cheaply, it lowers the rate of interest across the economy, preventing the average person from earning returns. You can’t make any money in a savings account any more. Financial repression stopped you!
This problem is global, but people are fighting back against it. DTSS.us unravels UN fraud on what seems like a daily basis, showing how the big bankers and the elite behind them effectively control the global economy. Getting the information out to the general public is vital.
The good news, though, is that you don’t have to be a part of the system. You can break out, so long as you understand the game.
Stop Putting Your Money In The Bank
Banks are essentially a type of fraud. When you deposit money, the financial institution doesn’t store it safely for you. Instead, it uses it to lever up debt in the system, lending it out to other people. When they deposit the money in their checking accounts, the bank has more capital to lend out again. This process can go on for a long time and makes banks a lot of money. But it also cheapens credit, pushing down interest rates dramatically. Thus, you barely get paid any interest when you store cash at the bank.
The solution is to avoid banks entirely. Do what the elite do, and put your money into real capital. Don’t let the bank act as the middleman.
Invest In Inflation-Proof Assets
Gold and property are perhaps the two most critical inflation-proof assets you can have in your portfolio. Gold is tough to dig out of the ground, so supplies only increase slowly over time – perhaps just a couple of percent per year. And property, likewise, is challenging to construct. Once you have it, you’re able to make a lot of money.
Whatever you do, don’t keep your assets in the form of cash or checking deposits. You could eventually wind up losing it.
Create Value For Others
Finally, don’t allow anyone to tell you that you can’t create value. You don’t have a station in life. You can achieve whatever you want. Sometimes, the powers that be want to keep the little guy down. Regular people are competition – and they must avoid that however, they can.
