2014’s Most Despited Investment Was Up 73%

You may think I got these numbers wrong or that the headline below is a joke, but as you’ll see, the most despised investment class of 2014—gold—really was up 73% last year… in Russia.

Before you dismiss that as irrelevant, you should read Jeff Clark’s brilliant article on the subject; it’s fun and yet fact driven and presents a perspective all investors should give serious thought to.

“Gold Price in Rubles Rises 73% in 2014”

The article detailed how gold had soared last year due to the depreciation of the ruble. What especially pleased him was that gold rose more than the ruble fell. It also outpaced the rise in inflation.

The article included a chart of the last six weeks’ price movement, during which the ruble had taken an especially ugly drop.

The price of gold rose against ALL currencies in 2014—except the US dollar. Yes, gold was up in the euro, Japanese yen, Swiss franc, Canadian dollar, British pound, Australian dollar, New Zealand dollar, Chinese renminbi, Indian rupee, Swedish krona, Brazilian real, Israeli shekel, and South Korean won.

Even more interesting was that gold outperformed most stock markets around the world… GoldOutperformedStocksExceptinUSandCanadain2014

How long to be a millionaire

How long does it take to earn $1m in different countries?

INFLATION may have ruined “How to marry a millionaire” as a good film title, but there is still something magical about $1m. How long would it take for an average person to earn that special sum? To find out The Economist looked at how much the main breadwinner in an average household makes each year (before tax).

On this measure, America creates the swiftest millionaires, and also the most (around 5m households, or 4% of the total). South of the border, Mexicans can expect to toil for three centuries to earn the same. For those struggling to imagine $1m, consider this: stacked up and denominated in $100 notes, it would reach over a metre high and weigh ten kilograms (22 lb).

Private Issue Global Gold Currency Revealed

Why wait for governments when the Free Market can fix the currency crisis itself? Dan Girolmo, a Karatbars Gold Director Elite joins Gary Franchi to roll out the worlds first private issue international Gold Currency.

 

Fiat money is, of course, “fake” money. It is printed on paper, and secured by no real collateral. Commodity money is the opposite. It is still printed on paper, but is usually secured by collateral of some kind (usually gold ie: the gold standard).

Most fiat money is actually secured by the issuing government’s ability to keep its currency stable. This is how America operates it’s currency. It keeps its value based solely on the American government’s ability to not screw it up. It allows for much easier manipulation of the currency, but can be risky during economic turmoil (like right now).  [Commodity Money vs. Fiat Money]
