A couple of years ago, we discovered something was fundamentally wrong with our economy and markets. Between the spring of 2000 and 2009, we noticed a series of extreme and conflicting events. For example, the two decade bull market in the global stock markets which should have ended in 2000, should have been replaced by a new wealth cycle. Instead, in 2007 there was a new peak in the stock market, but in a non-natural way. The type of implosion that followed in 2008/2009, wasn’t a natural type of event. At the same time, while the price of several commodities had been increasing in a steady way, some other commodities literally exploded. One of those commodities, gold, had such a steady and robust climb, that it raised a very natural question: “What is such a price chart signaling?”
Our personal and extended research showed that we were experiencing a new wealth cycle. In the last two decades of the 20th century, paper financial assets were the main source of wealth creation. But as it goes with all cycles in this world, the death of one cycle goes hand in hand with the birth of a new one. So we discovered that the first years of the 21st century brought about the birth of a wealth cycle that was centered around hard assets: gold, silver, grains, sugar, potash, rare earths, etc.
Interestingly, the paper financial world was still rising at the same time. In the light of the theory of wealth cycles, we thought that was not really possible …. until we understood the role of the government(s). They were apparently not very happy with the ongoing evolution. A paradigm based on financial paper assets is the kind of world they like because they can control it. The real assets based paradigm by contrast, implies a less significant role for governments and central banks. It’s all about power and control, even if it means they need to fight a natural trend. That insight marked a milestone in our view on the world. We weren’t aware it was THAT bad.
By researching the different types of commodities, we discovered that gold and silver had some special values. The most striking one being integrity! Gold cannot lie, is what we wrote about it. Furthermore, it’s the only asset that can store wealth in a universal way, outside the financial system. During the exceptional implosion of the financial world in 2008 / 2009, we understood that gold was the ultimate store of value; despite it’s price decrease, it was still protecting wealth. The safe haven characteristic of precious metals is historically an important one, although ,seemingly, the world forgot this in the past few decades.
By talking to ordinary people like friends and family, we discovered that most of us consider holding gold or silver as something “exotic”, something “mythical”. That was the final trigger for the birth of GoldSilverWorlds. As we became convinced that gold and silver were decisively going to fulfill their monetary function, and that most people were not aware of the values of the precious metals, we wanted to contribute in a positive way to our society. The ultimate message of gold and silver being “safe havens” which protect our wealth is a fundamental message that everyone should understand. That becomes even more important in a world where governments, central planners and banks will do whatever they can to maintain their power. Their extremely dangerous monetary policies result in immense amounts of debts, which sooner rather than later will result in wealth destruction. The longer we wait, the worse the effects. Ordinary and hard working people will pay part of the bill as well. This attitude is simply immoral.
GoldSilverWorlds has the intention to spread the message about the real benefits of gold and silver in a simple way that everyone of us can understand. GoldSilverWorlds helps people understand how to invest their personal or professional wealth, where they can do so and what to avoid when doing so. Those messages that are not told by mainstream media, sadly enough. Because of the internet, we can help each other by spreading the word, so let’s make use of it !
