    “stable” – Just look up “List of Recessions in the United States” on wikipedia, and see how magically stable gold is. If we look just simply at a post-civil war era to the creation of the Federal Reserve (1865-1907) we have : 7 recessions, at 3 financial panics, one “Long Depression.” But look at the impact on GDP: this recent recession saw a 5% decrease, but these earlier recessions: from 15-20%. Talking about things correcting “violently” –there ya go, massive instability w/ gold..

    Continued… Also, if you really think our debt will ever be paid off in this system then you don’t understand the whole thing. the FIRST American fiat dollar was printed as debt owed to the Federal Reserve (a private company). Some debt is ok for the government to keep the wheels greased but there’s no way to “print your way out of this”, the free market will correct itself and violently, hopefully they fix the issue and put us back on the gold standard this time.

    I think you’re sufficiently indoctrinated into the system and nothing anyone says to you will change that, and I’m sure you think you are being a completely patriotic American which in your own way you are. But the fact is that for thousands of years money was gold/silver and it’s only been the last 40 years that our currency has been a fiat. When money was backed by gold it was $35 an ounce for gold. 40 years later it is almost $1500 an ounce. You’re telling me that’s stable and wealthy?

    bANKS ARE ALREADY TALKING ABOUT TAKING ALL YOUR MONEY,, SO TAKE YOUR MONEY OUT WHILE YOUR STILL HAVE A CHANCE. If every one take out all there money out in November that’s it for fractional reserve banking, Take out all savings and all checking accounts out,. sell your stocks and move on, to live with cash only printed before 2007 or something before the bail out.

    Stop getting paid through the bank ask for a check. and work under the table if you can,, Stop paying taxes, stop helping banks,close your back accounts. The only way to stop these ppl is to stop funding them. if every one the whole collective effort of the humans in the western world. stops paying for it’s enslavement through taxes and they will have to rethink there perspective, all we need is a leader. Some one like a martin Luther king type person to lead the way. We need a revolution.

    If you’re assigning gold “a set value to a set amount that everyone agrees on,” then it holds no “real” value -just like fiat currency.

    “the Fed Reserve….prints money out of thin air” –as if the Treasury department had some kind of magical process of printing money that makes it “real”. Fractional reserve banking works and is the system of the entire world -it is how wealth is created out of a limited money supply. Our government debt is massive, and is a problem, but a slow, sluggish economy is the exact opposite time to address it. Paying off the debt will only occur during a boom period which will just take time….

    The book by Joseph Ferrell, “Babylon’s Banksters” is a pretty good description too… in terms of using gold and silver as a currency for international trade….logic would agree…. the deeper aspects of golds value may be of a kind of alchemical property which is implicit within the psyche of people as gold itself manifests in planets… kind of a chemical vibrational property with certain meanings… there is evidence to suggest this… thanks though, that did help.

    I think there’s alot of misplaced faith in your comment and if you did a little bit of research you will see that our economy is being crushed by the dollar. Since the Federal Reserve is a private entity and prints money out of thin air, then loans it out at interest to our government, collapse of that system is inevitable. Look up fractional reserve system and interest on government debt vs GDP… The whole system is ready to topple under its own weight and take the world with it.

    Gold is a tangible, finite resource of the universe. It’s scarce which means that the more power someone has, the more they can possess above his neighbors. It doesn’t really hold any particular use, you can’t eat it, drink it or use it for anything meaningful, but you can measure it and assign a set value to a set amount that everyone agrees on. Fiat currency is created out of paper, can be printed indefinitely and holds no real value. Barter > Gold > Fiat Currency. Hope this helps.

    Why is gold money? What’s its value…? It’s scarcity, conductivity, beauty… ? I’d suggest the history is more complex. If some carves some wood into a totem pole that’s money, more definitively- food, labor, shelter, technology, energy, production… The fruits of people… Food is money…. But the printing should be a credit towards the future production of the people…. Against the collective assets of the state… Not to put the people in debt…. The Fed used to hold grain

    I’m not being sarcastic, but you’re basically right. A dollar is backed by the economy of the US, and its relative position to others. Given that the US is still the worlds largest and strongest economy, that the dollar is held as the world’s biggest reserve currency, is used more than any other currency as a means on international transaction and is the de facto currency of many countries, I think the dollar is still a good bet and defines “money” in the truest sense.

    The zionist bankers who created the federal reserve also stripped the dollar it’s value of gold. So when the honorable Mr.Ron Paul sits in front of bernanke he knows which questions to slap the bastard with.

    Sarcasm I hope. Money in the the sense these crooks r talking, is a piece of paper that if accepted, your are entering a agreement with the government for services rendered by you. Entering a agreement and accepting the dollar issued by the government/federal reserve you hold stocks/shares in the U.S.A. AND IT’S DEBT. The dollar is back by a 16,8oo,ooo,ooo,ooo DEBT.

    So… you actually think the Fed is a good thing? And that gold has no value? Jesus Christ. Also, can you prove any of your statistical assertions?

    Bernanke…slam dunk! Purchasing toxic securities is not government stimulus spending. And he’s right, gold is not money. Gold was money, but it is not now. Gold is a precious metal in which you can invest, by exchanging money for it and hoping that the value of the metal goes up- by which you measure in terms of actual money. The value of gold fluctuates –its worth is determined by the market, not by some magical chemical property.

    There is a petition to have Ron Paul run again in 2016. Google it and sign it if you support him, and spread the word to anyone you can. Need 100,000 signatures by June.

    93% of all new income goes to the top 1%, follow the money if facts matter. The income disparity has never been this high since 1922 or Great depression. The (R) party supports the 1% with ferver not the Democrat’s. 25% of all Corporations pay no income tax at all. My business could use a 28% pass, then I could compete with Walmart prices. Maybe you all think the fed will go away and gold will have some kind of value and the rest of us will quit eating and fall into place like sheep but I don’t.

    On the subject money…I want to know what is the smoothest and cheapest way to send money using the internet in order to pay or receive money for goods and services other than PayPal, which I’ve heard is not to be counted on according to many YouTubers who have had their money “locket up” by PayPal. If anyone knows about a cheap, smooth and reliable money transfer service on the web I’d want to know about it. Thank you.

    Q: Why are you paying off banks?
    A: Same reason as before because they give us money back instead of letting everyone else have it.

    I’m not a religious retard and actually listened to what Ron Paul was saying. I know some of you think school, job, marriage is going to stay this way… There’s more gold than money that’s circulating. What don’t you understand. If anything he made congress look stupid. Lol when citizens and countries want their money and there is none! What will be the currency to obtain to survive ? He’s asking if it’s gold and apparently the government doesn’t want to say . :) have a nice future
