When you choose to remain ignorant about how money really works, you are actually part of the problem. You can become part of the solution.

“The world is a dangerous place to live, not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don’t do anything about it.” ― Albert Einstein

Family-money

1) If we’re going to borrow money, why from a bank?
2) Why not from a family member?
3) Not having the money to lend is why we don’t.
4) Knowing people’s business is why we don’t.

- Draw up a promissory note. Take collateral (if possible). If a family member is irresponsible, don’t lend. If you borrower from a family member, pay it back. Don’t assume you don’t have to and it’s OK just because it’s family.

- Decrease dependency on banks (strangers), keep wealth in the family/community, teach each other to save/build wealth. Stop giving money to corporations that don’t care about you (Wall Street).

reaction

1) Listening to mainstream media and making decisions based on what you hear.

2) A seeming “emergency” comes up and you react by using credit cards to handle it.

3) The emotional stress the two can cause and why. Fear of the unknown. Loss of control. Anxiety.

Inflation

Standard of living and quality of life are not the same.

“It’s not that the stock market is gaining value… it’s that our money is losing value. And so if you have a debased currency… a devalued currency, the price of everything goes up. Stocks are no exception,” Peter Schiff

“The Fed knows that the U.S. economy is not recovering,” Schiff said. “It simply is being kept from collapse by artificially low interest rates and quantitative easing. As that support goes, the economy will implode.” Peter Schiff

Devalued currency is a result of inflation. Inflation is The Fed printing money at will. This is an intentional tax.

Why should you care? Your stock goes up in price and you falsely believe it’s a good thing. How many hours are you willing to work to buy a loaf of bread?

taxes

Why do we pay taxes? What are they used for? What if we stopped paying them?

If America is such a great country, why aren’t taxes voluntary? If we all love living here so much, wouldn’t we voluntarily pay them? Why are they extracted by force of law? Make taxes voluntary and see what this country would look like in 5 yrs, 10 yrs. etc.

1) Why do we pay taxes?
To keep the government running? The government is a corporation, a business. Businesses need money. Why does government take your money to operate it’s business but you have to use your own money to run your business?

2) What are our taxes used for?
To hide the invisible tax of inflation.

3) What if we stopped paying? Stop paying taxes and the corporation known as government will send its collections agent to visit. That agent is The Internal Revenue Service. Resist The IRS and you’ll have armed officers of the law to deal with.

The Promissory Note:
Where It All Starts

Birth Certificates:
The Mother Load of All Promissory Notes

“Since 1933 every new child born was required to be ‘registered’, thereby creating a Corporate Person, effectively denying that child any rights as an owner of Real Property.
The act of registering a child contracted them as chattel, and the birth record was a deceptive legal way of getting the parents to sign the baby away. The birth record was in fact a promissory note that was converted into a slave bond, which was then sold to a private reserve bank effectively giving ownership of the child to the bank.”

Title pawn loans, pay day loans, rent-to-own. They all practice what’s called Ugly Math. You pay ridiculously high fees and rates of interest.

In this episode I sit down with Oscar Smith and we discuss what ugly math is, how to avoid it, and why it’s important. Oscar and I are working to make ugly math a weekly episode.
