“The Man with the Golden Balls” (apologies to Ian Fleming’s James Bond)

3 Golden Balls

“Two to one, you won’t get your stuff back”.

There is an old joke that these three balls mean – 

“Two to one, you won’t get your stuff back”.

But there’s more to it than that…far more……

(click on the balls above for a good yarn…go on…do it!) Enjoy…….

This is the third and final chapter in the series – “The War Begins….and It’s coming Your Way!”

Please enjoy……it may save your financial life!

"Don't Worry - Be Happy!"Ben Bernanke, the Chairman of the Federal Reserve, has just announced ANOTHER round of Quantitative Easing (QE3).

So now it’s official – both the ECB and The Fed are going to screw over the economy yet again through the money printing presses. For a comprehensive report from Bloomberg, you can read it at Agaricapital.wordpress.com

In the meantime – thank goodness for GOLD!

“Don’t Worry, Be Happy!”

As the various “political-powers-that-be” in the Eurozone, US and even China, are fighting their own political battles, GOLD it seems is becoming a little more, shall we say – “flavour of the month”. 

The ECB and the Federal Reserve are obviously hell-bent on decimating paper money value even further and there are many who are just now starting to believe in the power of “stores of value” – such as GOLD.

Here’s a current chart showing the GOLD price for the past 5 years: (DAMN – I LOVE IT WHEN I’M RIGHT!

Why "VANUATU GOLD"?

Why choose “VANUATU GOLD” as my heading?

Simple – I have been living in VANUATU for over 7 years and I am a firm believer in the merits of investing in GOLD!

VANUATU is a treasure in itself. “Yes!” – of course it has its own frustrating elements about it. It takes time to get anything done here (just ask anyone who is building a home here or has to have any dealings with the Lands Dept.) and as for the shopping – bloody expensive (due to the cost of imports) and a very limited range of goods available. On the upside, however, is the lack of restrictive Rules & Regulations, no traffic lights (you gotta love that!), NO INCOME TAX, wonderful people with a strong attachment to their traditional culture and great weather.

GOLD is the one element on this planet that is virtually indestructible! Every culture throughout history has revered it. Governments print “money” without apparent fear or favour (look at the US at present) and have their economic policies based on false premises. HOWEVER, those economies/currencies which are backed by strong GOLD reserves are those that will ultimately do well/better during times of financial crisis or what may be coming and that is – a financial holocaust. Which currencies would I invest in right now? Easy – the Swiss Franc and the Yuan. The $US is an absolute basket case. The US government’s bail-out policy (and those of follower nations such as the Eurozone and Australia) of ‘rescuing’ private commercial enterprises such as the banks, finance companies, car manufacturers and the like is DOOMED to failure. It is at best a band-aid solution to a situation that requires major surgery without anaesthetic. If we don’t bear the pain now, it will become a financial near-“life and death” situation sooner than most people realize. Watch out in in late 2012 as I believe that’s when it will “hit the fan”! Soooo – consider your GOLD position before then.
