Your real riches are your time and independence. Money is just an instrument for buying your time. It's a canister to hold your financial power until you're prepared and comfortable enough to re-distribute it or use it. But the whole world has been alienated from the actual money and has been tricked into utilizing a currency - a dishonest fraud that is quietly depriving you from your two most important assets.

We are spiraling into an era of economic catastrophe that is the most extreme the world has ever seen. The affluence relocation that will happen in this decade will be the biggest one in history. Actually wealth is never lost, it is only shifted. And that means that on the other side of every catastrophe there is a moment of opportunity.

The good news is that all you have to accomplish to change this crisis into your favor is to educate yourself. The greatest investment that you can make in your life is your own self-improvement and education. Education on the history of money, finance, currency, how the global economy works, etc. Education on how the central bank and the stock market can defraud you... and how they can swindle you.

If you discover what is going on and inform yourself about how the economic world works, you can place yourself on the appropriate side of this wealth relocation. Winston Churchill once said that "the further you look into the past, the further that you can see into the future".

The way the financial system operates is not totally hidden. It's visible, but it's complicated and people just don't, and can't see how it functions. It's very difficult for them to assume that we're involved in such a hoax. Besides that, some of the things are meant to be hidden, but the truth is slowly coming out.

Maloney said the Crash of Oct 1929 caused the Great Depression. This boundless error by itself renders his entire series worthless. See Silver Stealers Dot Net (100% free) to see the British attack against silver as money was 95% of the cause of the Great Depression!

To Hell with Fractional-Reserve ‘Debt’-Based Banking Constitutional Amendment

(It is extremely important that the average citizen understand our present system of debt-based currency issuance, which most people, unfortunately, do NOT understand, although it amounts to nothing more than a simple extortion racket clothed in a lot of financial mumbo jumbo: YOU (hereinafter referred to as the Serf) sign a promissory note of some kind, a mortgage, a business 'loan', or you swipe a credit card or acquiesce to some other credit instrument to THEM (hereinafter referred to as the Neofeudal Lords); they then create the money out of nothing ("ex nihilo"), and you pay it back over a lifetime with blood, sweat, labor, creativity, and tears; (here comes the truly diabolical part) then, they EXTINGUISH the principal portion hidden in every single one of your 'loan' payments while skimming off the interest portion to keep and play with (hey, they gotta pay for those mansions in the Hamptons somehow); this extinguishment of principal reduces the money supply and thus compels the population as a whole to take out more 'loans' from them in order to keep a requisite quantity of currency in circulation for advancing business and trade.

Let me simplify it even further: You are a Serf on a tread mill of eternal bogus debt to Neofeudal Lords.

The more ‘debt’, the greater the quantity of currency in circulation (there is no other way to create it under the present system), the less the purchasing power of the dollar, the higher the consumer price index (most importantly, the higher the costs of production), the more our manufacturing capacity is gutted by outsourcing, the harder you must work to maintain a standard of living.

If we can spend mystifying trillions of dollar on a worthless war on terror---which, surprise-surprise, only creates more terror---we can afford to do something different and beneficial for American citizens! We can afford to allocate our productivity in ways that benefit us all, not just the 0.1% in the financier class.)

The amendment proper:

(1) Rescind the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 and replace existing Federal Reserve notes and check book balances in all U.S. banking and credit-creating institutions on a 1-to-1 basis with U.S. Treasury-issued dollars and U.S. Treasury-denominated bank balances. Bankers are prohibited from creating credits to themselves in anticipation of the date of passage of this amendment, and any strategies employed by them involving ex nihilo credit creation specifically to take advantage of the transition to U.S. Treasury-issued dollars or U.S Treasury-denominated bank balances will be considered treason to the American people and punished accordingly.

(2) The principal portion of installment payments on presently existing financial loan contracts which originated via credit creation by institutions in the Federal Reserve system are not to be extinguished from the money supply, as is heretofore the case, but are to be distributed annually to existing individual U.S. citizens holding accounts in those respective Federal Reserve institutions in possession of the financial contract, in amounts proportional to the product of the minimum daily account balance for the preceding year and the number of days the account was active. Interest payments continue to redound to the parties which hold the promissory notes of existing financial contracts.

(3) Henceforward, credit creation by banking and financial institutions in the United States is prohibited. Loans are required to originate from previous savings of U.S. Treasury dollar notes and U.S. Treasury-denominated bank balances which are to be held in specific sequestered accounts designated solely for lending by the various financial institutions, with interest charges to be determined by the contracting parties. Deposits in the form of checkable accounts or savings accounts are kept separate and are redeemable on demand. Any existing financial contracts involving the transfer of earnings or savings into various funds, trusts, pensions, and retirement accounts and whose payments do not originate via direct credit creation remain fully in effect. All holdings of United States Treasury bonds existing at the time of passage of this amendment qualify as valid debts of the U.S. government.

(4) Fund the U.S. government directly via Treasury-issued currency authorized by the Congress in its yearly federal budget. The borrowing of money from banking institutions to pay for federal government expenditures, including the issuance of Treasury Notes and Bonds to the Federal Reserve system of banks, financial institutions, or individuals, is prohibited.

(5) Abolish the Federal Income Tax on individuals, corporations, and business enterprises and institute a federal sales tax with a varying yearly tax rate adjusted by the U.S. Congress in session, the sole aim of such adjustments being to maintain a stable or decreasing Consumer Price Index based on data collected by the Federal Government. Any such sales taxes taken in by the Federal Government are extinguished from the currency supply to keep the Consumer Price Index stable or decreasing and are not utilized for further funding. The Sixteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution is hereby voided.

(6) The adoption of this amendment does not prohibit the use by the citizens of the United States of any alternative currencies they should choose to use in their private or commercial transactions.

If you wanted a single place to start learning about monetary systems I think you'd be hard pressed to do better than this documentary. Mike Maloney knows his stuff and he's done a better job than most of putting it together in an easy to understand format.

There are many critical posts here but I don't think they credibly detract from the documentary. Some have made the claim that this is an expensive infommercial for Goldsilver.com. Is it really so hard to believe that some people believe in something so much that they choose to invest a good part of their life in a business venture that is consistent with their beliefs? Mike Maloney believes that all fiat currencies in the world (which is most of the world's currencies) will go to zero - and he's adequately supported by history. It is his goal to run a business that allows people to buy precious metals to protect themselves from this eventuality and he uses the profit from this business to fund education on the subject - such as this documentary.

I agree that there are some comments in the documentary that might have been qualified a bit better, like the claim that all fiat currencies depreciate to zero. This is historically true, but it might have been clearer (but cumbersome) to add that some of these fiat currencies were initially commodity-backed and successful for many years. The Roman denari , for example, survived for centuries as a gold-based currency, until successive emperors decided to debase the currency to fun wars and public programmes (literally striking coins with a higher and higher base metal content) until people lost faith in the currency and Rome was no longer able to afford to even maintain adequate legions for its own defence. The fall of Rome was a direct result of the debasement of its fiat currency.

Conversely the East Roman Empire (Byzantine) continued to trade the gold solidus for another 500 years and out-lasted the Western Empire by nearly 700 years. In a post above, somebody asked what does it look like when a currency collapses? If the failure is to a local currency the damage can be contained, but if it occurs to a widely traded currency (such as the Romain solidus) empires fall. It's followed by invasion, suffering, tyranny and the dark ages. Economic collapse is not usually pretty.

I personally think that anybody that watches this documentary with an open mind and chooses to research the subject further will be doing themselves a big favour. Those that decide to pick holes in it and miss the underlying warning, may not be so happy with the value of their paper dollars in the next few years.

I honestly don't feel like there is anything wrong with the dollar, it does its job of getting what I want. I also don't understand the fluff about the dollar taking my time and freedom away. It creates times and freedom. It is convenient or am I missing something?

I'm still a little confused. So I should invest in gold and silver? Gold Standard seems practical but what can I do with it? Why can't companies like Rosland Capital create their own currency? Why not invest in Bit-coins?

I agree with another poster who accused this of being an expensive and elaborate infomercial for precious metals, a.k.a. The Goldsteins and Silversteins. Yes, more zionist banker tricks to get you to buy their useless metals.

A very well presented introduction on a highly controversial topic which must be appreciated within the context of a worldwide adoption of the USD as "the trading" and debt currency standard via the IMF and global banking system, which has since the 1970's paved the path to a global catastrophe waiting for the "death cross" (financial pun intended) when corrupt US politicians and greedy financial houses push the limits too far. The statement that our true value asset is "time and independence" is a stroke of superior wisdom which people in the upper middle class should reflect on daily - understanding that their parents' initial investment in their education is that which separates them from the majority of the world's population currently living in poverty - you are what you know! It is now 09/2015 with gold & silver prices at all time lows, albeit not representative of physical demand, but then one should ponder on the relevance of daily market closing prices which are convenient to balance sheets despite DAILY intraday movements in excess of 10%! Without a doubt, Gold is a hedge against a GLOBAL currency write-off and since all significant governments, including the IMF, have been stockpiling it seems logical that the new fiat would have to be based on some fixed value to start over again, free from the trade constraints of a debt laden USD. And surely, 10% of savings would be enough not to make one a goldbug - btw purchasing gold anytime before 7 years ago would show a profit even at this low price.

Damn, talk about some propagandist crap.

If it is not Food/Air/Water it is Fiat. So yes, gold, silver, etc are all Fiat moneys.

This is easy to see.

If you are alone on a desert island and there is a pile of coconuts and a pile of gold, which has "value" and why?

coconuts provide food, drink, and even kindling for a fire. Even if
you detest the taste of coconut, it will provide all those and keep you

The gold won't even make a good tool, it is too soft.

Another way to look at it, you have gold. I have food and arms. You wish to trade me gold for food and/or arms.

I say no. After all, why should I? I have no interest in your shiny metal. It has no intrinsic value.

Many people are just like many other creatures on this planet, they just like shiny objects. Nothing more, nothing less.

And that is all "value" and "worth" are, the emotion of want".

How ever much you "Want" something is how much you "Value" it, or think that it is "Worth".

Gold and Silver not money
8 years ago

Don't be fooled: gold and silver aren't money either. Gold and silver are not limited. The more gold and silver that are mined the less valuable they become; just like printing more dollars. Dollars aren't printed anymore anyway; most of the 'money' in the system is digital only. If the world went through a nuclear war gold would be worthless. Seeds to plant food and potable water would be worth everything. Gold and silver are just metals, just elements.

This guy said the Government just prints more money ,the U.S. Government doesn't print the countries money at all the Federal Reserve prints the money and is not part of the Government at all .The U.S. Government borrows it's money from the Federal Reserve ,,also the Reserve In the name was put in there to make it look to the public that the Federal Reserve is Government run ,it is privately run business ,run by the people that decide what happens in the country not the Government . If the public were aware of all the hidden things that happen there would be one hell of a rebellion I would hope ,The problem is getting them (THE PUBLIC) away from all the (put) in place distractions ,TV, video game ,etc , usless mind numbing strategically made and placed things to keep them from focusing on what is really happening in the world around them !!!!

Someone should ask the poor fellow what capitalism is about if it is not about using Capital to control the means of production. To me his expose speaks of a bunch of capitalists that have succeeded very well, thank you. I fail to understand why he feels capitalism=freedom when the mess we have (he calls it bondage) is the result of very intelligent people using their craftiness to secure the means of production for themselves and their kind.

Collectivism leads to dictatorship and poverty? Come on. If you want to give the freedom to some to succeed beyond their wildest dreams at making themselves happy (on their terms) then you have nothing to complain about. Some people's wants are as limitless as the debt ceiling Mr. Maloney. The author actually wants collectivism to come and save the day, but probably doesn't see that.

Until one can question his motives I don't care what he uses as a currency. The freedom to dupe is the American way.

I love this website but sometimes some publicity creeps under the door and - as Regen says - why do they want "worthless" dollars for "valuable" gold?!?!
It's a shame because the subject is very interesting but needs a neutral presentation.

The Islamic perspective of an economy is based on the possession of real wealth in the form of natural resources plus goods and services. The right Money supply (currency) of a country is the exchange of resources. However, the value of a currency is determined by the market forces of demand and supply for product and services by the buyers and sellers. All product and services carry an intrinsic value, that is the GDP should equal the money supply. Fractional reserve banking is the devil is disguise.

The reason why gold is so valuable is because it's now used in many different electronics and used many different ways. If society collapses, you are going to get much further with food, weapons and ammo, and supplies.

I watched all parts and found it very interesting and well explained. We can't deny that what he says is the true story of money but his solution for the moment is to buy gold from his associates, and if enough people do so in huge quantity, i imagine the price of gold will go down and his associates and him will have more currency in hand which they will trade into cheaper gold and silver. The guy is obviously smart despite his claim to be dyslectic. I bought gold in early 2000, if i remember well the price was 360 for an ounce. It's incredible to see what it has come to now.

I am far from being knowledgeable about the whole financial system. All i know is i don't owe one penny and have enough above my head to eat and be warm and a few little extras. In that sense i am rich compare to many around me. If it crashes i will fall like others but perhaps not from such high level.

One other advantage i may have is that i live in the booneys instead of the city. Barter system did not work when they bartered cows, the bartering would obviously be different in this era.

all barter and trade is a manipulation and prostitution. gold and silver has no protection from two key things domination and authority. if you remove barter and trade you can remove domination and authority.

A WISE investor understands: TRUE DIVERSIFICATION across MANY asset classes offers BOTH financial insurance (during recession/economic collapse/mad max) AND also good returns VIA a SPREAD of gold, silver, rare diamonds, income producing real estate, AND paper diversification. Why? Because, NO brash, fast-talking, 'booyah,' after-the-fact nostradmus-pundit has yet produced a crystal ball to predict exactly how, when or why global catastrophes hit!

REITERATION: Mere 'mutual fund diversification' essentially restricts an investor to paper; the emotional whims of the market; and relying on his owned home as his primary asset, -usually a fat, non-income producing liability!

Ancient basic wisdoms and pragmatic strategies, proven to secure the fortunes of nobility and the elites through the ages, have been increasingly abandoned for pseudo-sensibilities among the willfully-ignorant masses, as said elites continue ti create an engineering of consent (read Edward Bernays; Prof. Noam Chomsky). Worse still, these wisdoms could have saved said masses globally in the last recession/crash but continues to elude them as steered through a sea of corporate hacks; insider-paper-pundits; over-lobbyed public servants, against the few well-meaning sages who invariably get dealt the 'conspiracist' label.

Oh, you foul, faithless, quivering people - you see Truth stand before you...-and still, you call for Barabbas!

This doc is nothing surprising. A smart investor never invests in money itself. They invest in other things. Gold and Silver are not my choice since companies always do better because they produce things. Gold and Silver doesn't . But otherwise this is an infomertial to buy gold and silver. You really should invest in the stock market.

This is one of the best documentaries on this site in my opinion. I don't think right now is the best time to buy gold but not a bad time if it's your first buy.

Paper and hard assets teter totter if you sell your gold back at 1800.00 an ounce that means it takes more dollars to purchase something if you sell your gold for 250.00 per ounce money is stronger and it takes less to purchase something - the same with the gold as it goes up and down it buys more or less so in real time no loss or gain just transfer to the vehicle that has the most value at the time - I owned and directed a hard asset company in the early and mid 80's - I flew thru this post so it may be hard to understand?

these people are pitching gold - as the dollar strengthens gold will come down and they know this is taking place and they are doing everything in there power to move gold

If your going to buy gold now as it comes down do a cost avg and continue to purchase as it falls until it bottoms -

Looks more like an infomercial for silver and gold than a documentary. It's odd that they present that so soon after the precious metal bubble burst. The current gold spot price is roughly the same as it was 4 years ago at 1291.7USD. Peak was at 1921.5USD in 2011...
