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
-Why the big sale of European bonds?
-The Yen: Japan is accusing Trump of causing uncertainty.
-Why do people keep comparing Donald Trump to Andrew Jackson? Andrew explains.
-Andrew talks about The Federal Bank of NY and how it works.
-The exploitation of workers in other countries to beef up profits. Andrew tells us WHY the corporate tax should be reduced in this country.
-Why it’s time for America to get selfish; we’ve done our world building and it’s time to re-focus our energy.
-A caller asks about using debt as a blessing. Andrew explains how to use debt properly because if you don’t it can be very dangerous.
-Andrew skims the subject of electricity, EMFs, etc.
-How many keys to the castle did Iraq lose when they were liberated in 2003?
-Comment from a listener: Love your Wednesday show. Andrew Gause is impressive, and you do a very nice job of asking the right questions at the right level of interest. (There’s a bit of Golden Retriever in all of us.)
My father used to do contracting deals with a handshake. He would go to the broke (and nearly did) before he would lose his honor. I pass along what is meant as a great compliment to Mr. Gause—he is one of very few people that I would trust on a handshake, and certainly the only “stranger” of whom I can make that claim.
-Question from a listener: I have been wondering why the national debt appears to be increasing by an amount that is more than each year’s deficit. For example in 2016 I read that the deficit was $587 Billion yet the national debt rose by $1.417 Trillion. The other $830 Billion appears to be some kind of “other borrowing”. This seems to be yet another way Uncle Sam is cooking the books. Is this true, and what is that “other borrowing” attributed to? http://usgovernmentspending.
-The government gives loads of money for research as long as that research reflects the bias they want.
-Question from a listener: Trump is enacting policy that will stimulate the economy, which many people claim will boost inflation, perhaps dramatically. Since he is removing the supressive policies. The next banking collapse will occur. Could kill certain banks, while bailing out depositors with the effect of squashing Trump inflation?
-Question from a listener: I understand that although the Cherokee won a court order to stay on their land, Jackson had them forcibly removed due to a Gold Rush? Did Jackson force them from their land as part of his battle with the bankers ie. he needed the gold for the Treasury? Also, in the time of Jackson until 1913, how did the USG acquire gold?
-Comment and question from a listener: History textbooks often point out that when nations are divided they fall against foreign invaders, but when they are united they are resilient against invaders. It sounds reasonable, but I think this idea has helped to trick many people into being against Brexit and Donald Trump’s nationalism… words like “selfish”,”isolationist” and “fear-driven” come up by these critics. They can’t seem to distinguish that standing alone is sometimes the right thing to do, and unity isn’t always good, especially when it’s unity under a centralized dictatorship. What does Andy think good unity really looks like? I’d like to explain this to my 13 year old students. Also does Andy thing the United States is an example of good unity?
-How far back do we have to go to find a Nationalist president? Eisenhower was the last one.
-So who, in fact, controls the UN?
-Question from a listener: What do you recommend in regards to specifying or including numismatic coins within a will or Trust? If one includes them, how specific should one be? Does the same go for semi numismatic coins?
-Question from a listener: I have a 16 year old son who is contemplating going to a tech college after high school to learn a trade. With Trump in office, what types of jobs or trades will there be a need for in the future?
-If people are spending so much time and effort into creating and maintaining the encrypted algorithms for bitcoin, could it be, people are losing faith in fiat currency?
-Is it possible that the boys Trump card is Donald Trump?
-Why can’t we just create debt forgiveness?
-Comment from Trader Scott: Andrew knows how much I respect him. My question is about tariffs (taxes). I’m a libertarian about this, and I am opposed to tariffs. But I’m also completely opposed to the crappy “free trade” pacts. Can’t we have a country with super low income taxes, and/or consumption tax? And have a super vibrant economy and screw the other nations? Why play tit for tat with all the losers? But I understand the tariff argument within the world we live – it’s just that to me it’s just not getting to the problem, which is WAY too much government period. Check out Trader Scott’s Blog
Also, Andrew and I disagree about the US$, which is certainly a piece of crap – agreed. It’s just that all the others are even worse, and currencies are not absolute, but relative to each other. I’m still very bullish on the $. If the selling gets more intense, I’ll buy more.
and so much more!!
