If you had to pick the single greatest threat to your personal wealth in 2021, what would it be?
The stock market finally crashing?
Some kind of geopolitical or trade tension blowing up?
Another new strain of the virus that is immune to vaccines?
In my view, there is a bigger threat than all of these combined.
And that is the monetary system finally rotting off the tree.
If and when it finally falls, that’s when some very bad things are going to happen to ordinary investors and savers around the world.
I’ll first explain what I mean by that.
And then I’ll show you what I believe is the single most powerful thing you can do — right now as soon as you’ve finished reading today’s Rum Rebellion — to protect yourself.
In our modern materialistic society, money defines everything. Even if you shun material wealth, money is still the denominator for your labour.
Ever since 2008, governments and central banks have had to pump more ‘money’ into the system to keep it going.
Those closest to the government and central banks benefit immensely from these policies. Those minding their own business and getting on with their life are the last to see the flow of ‘new money’ entering the system.
And by the time they get it, that ‘new money’ doesn’t buy (in terms of assets) what it bought the elites.
No wonder there is a self-interested cabal of parasites around the world desperate to keep the game going. They do that by keeping the plebs fearful and busy. And you do THAT by controlling the flow of information.
Which is why I turned the TV off years ago.
I say it’s ‘new money’, but it’s really just more of the same old, dirty, corrupt, fiat money that has been washing around the system since Nixon ‘temporarily’ suspended gold convertibility in 1971.
The ones that are really getting screwed by the old money system are the kids. Those who left university saddled with debt and needing to take on lots more to buy a house and start a family.
What’s more, the poor bastards have been brought up to believe the world owes them a favour.
If you think there isn’t going to be any blowback from this, you’re kidding yourself.
I say this because the blowback has already started. You just need to know where to look.
While the world’s elites have been busy pumping money into the system and telling us how to live our lives…the next generation have been building a new, peer-to-peer financial system.
What does that mean?
Well, in short, it is a financial system that does not need a trusted middleman to facilitate transactions. Computer code performs the role of trust.
Add to this the fact that this new money cannot just be created at will — think bitcoin with its limited supply — and you have a mortal threat to the old money powers.
What’s happening under the surface is the biggest threat to finance since the Medicis dominated banking in the Middle Ages.
Remember old Rothschild’s famous maxim?
‘Permit me to issue and control the money of a nation, and I care not who makes its laws!’
That’s been the bankers’ playbook for centuries. But this new money system is a massive threat to it. They might care who makes the laws now!
It’s a five-part plan showing you how to become a stakeholder in this new money system. While it is still small. And while first-mover advantages are plentiful.
I’m convinced this is the biggest financial revolution in any of our lifetimes. You’d be mad not to get a ringside seat (for an insanely cheap ticket price).
