In a moment see why this Ecuador property offers such good value.
Whether this “set up” is on purpose, or not, is a subject of lively contention… but the intention doesn’t really matter much. The results… created innocently or intentionally will be the same. Disaster for the middle class. However opportunities in international business, investing and lifestyles mean that you do not have to share in the loss.
We can begin to understand this fact with three simple thoughts.
The first thought is that the US is currently experiencing deflation. You can see from this graph from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
The December 2008 message Multi Currency Inflation at this site, asked the question… will there be inflation or deflation.
Now we know.
The second thought is that the deflationary forces are creating inflationary fundamentals like we have never seen before. The inflation stage is set. This is a formula that means disaster for most… but this does not have to apply to you.
One reader just wrote: I’m thinking a ‘creative way’ to fix a problem and work through one’s passion will not handle the whole situation. I hope I’m wrong and you have an even better idea. Medicine and doctors. Savings stripped. Destruction of people’s lives and stability. All done with intention.
The dollar is going down the toilet, and the best option I see the Fed and Government taking (for themselves, not for us) is to have a debit system. The debit system would pay people, and would pay others from the people’s account. People would no longer research to save taxes. Their accounts would automatically be debited with whatever the government deems able to be taken. The funds would filter through the Central Bank to be certain the funds are going only where the government it should go.
There is no more representative republic. There is no more self determinism. There are no more freedoms as you can be controlled through your debit card. If government decides you are an ‘unworthy person’ they can easily take all of your nest egg. If Congress can so thoroughly devastate us overnight one time, they can do it again. I have a real hard time thinking about a creative way to generate income. I trust not a congressman. I certainly do not trust the current administration. I don’t think they’re through with us. Best Wishes to you Gary.
Many readers share thoughts like this. I know that so many of you are suffering. Yet I must say: economics will get worse. Fortunately they will then get better.
This leads us to the third thought… which is “the common person who will bear the brunt of the upcoming inflation.”
Yet you do not have to suffer.
A USA Today article “Wages could hit steepest plunge in 18 years
by Dennis Cauchon and Paul Overberg” explains the problem. Here is an excerpt: A bad economy and low inflation are starting to drag down wages for millions of everyday workers and freeze benefits for millions of retirees.
Average weekly wages have fallen 1.4% this year for private-sector workers through September, after adjusting for inflation, to $616.11, a USA TODAY analysis of Bureau of Labor Statistics data found. If that trend holds, it will mark the biggest annual decline in real wages since 1991.
“Wages are usually the last thing to deteriorate in a recession,” says economist Heidi Shierholz of the liberal Economic Policy Institute. “But it’s happening now, and wages are probably going to be held down for a long time.”
Yet falling income for wage earners and retirees is meeting huge potential inflation according to the October 16, 2009 New York Times article “$1.4 Trillion Deficit Complicates Stimulus Plans” by Jackie Calmes.
Here is an excerpt: The Obama administration said Friday that the federal budget deficit for the fiscal year that just ended was $1.4 trillion, nearly a trillion dollars greater than the year before and the largest shortfall relative to the size of the economy since 1945. The shortfall for the fiscal year 2009, which ended Sept. 30, translates to 10 percent of the economy. Economists generally agree that annual deficits should not exceed 3 percent of the G.D.P., and that is the level President Obama had vowed to reach by the end of his first term in 2013. At 10 percent of the gross domestic product, the 2009 deficit is the highest since the end of World War II, when it was 21.5 percent. At the same time, many Americans are demanding further help, confronting forecasts that job losses will not peak until mid-2010. Representative John A. Boehner of Ohio, the Republican minority leader in the House, rejected that position. “It is irresponsible for Democrats to continue spending taxpayers’ money we don’t have to fund an agenda that would destroy the jobs we need to get our economy moving again,” Mr. Boehner said.
The problem looks even worse according to another October 16 2009 USA Today article entitled “Obama team makes it official: Budget deficit hits record. By a lot.” Excerpts say: The Obama administration has released new deficit numbers, and they are not pretty. The deficit for Fiscal Year 2009, which ended Sept. 30, came in at a record $1.42 trillion, more than triple the record set just last year. In addition, future deficits are currently projected to total $9.1 trillion in the coming decade.
Yet while the wage earner suffers… others are becoming rich according to an October 17, 2009 New York Tines article entitled
“Bailout Helps Fuel a New Era of Wall Street Wealth” by Graham Bowley.
Excerpts say: Even as the economy continues to struggle, much of Wall Street is minting money, many Americans wonder how this can possibly be. How can some banks be prospering so soon after a financial collapse, even as legions of people worry about losing their jobs and their homes?
It may come as a surprise that one of the most powerful forces driving the resurgence on Wall Street is not the banks but Washington. Many of the steps that policy makers took last year to stabilize the financial system — reducing interest rates to near zero, bolstering big banks with taxpayer money, guaranteeing billions of dollars of financial institutions’ debts — helped set the stage for this new era of Wall Street wealth. A year after the crisis struck, many of the industry’s behemoths — those institutions deemed too big to fail — are, in fact, getting bigger, not smaller. Now, the industry has new tools at its disposal, courtesy of the government. With interest rates so low, banks can borrow money cheaply and put those funds to work in lucrative ways, whether using the money to make loans to companies at higher rates, or to speculate in the markets. Fixed-income trading — an area that includes bonds and currencies — has been particularly profitable.
Here is why you do not have to suffer and can profit like the big banks.
Messages at this site have repeatedly shown that four ways to beat inflation are to invest in equities, real estate, your own business and commodities.
Commodities are riskiest in the deflationary times.
Equities have skyrocketed this year… as have bonds treated like equities.

US dollar denominated real estate also offers extra value now. The dollar has fallen which reduces the price of real estate. This is why I am heavily invested in US and Ecuador property.
Take this acreage and farm house as an example. This offers great value because it is an investment in real estate… a business and commodities (food)
Here is the farm house. From the front porch there are…
views of the acreage.
