Quantitative Easing Doesn’t Work Yet the Federal Reserve Keeps Using It

It’s Amazing How Stupid Our Government Thinks We Are…

The Great Financial Crap Shoot...

The Great Financial Crap Shoot…

With all the gloom, doom, and spin that is in the state-sponsored news these days, it’s easy to believe that we’re sunk as a nation. Mark Levin has put forth his ideas to recapture our Constitutional Republic before it completely fails (see his book “The Liberty Amendments”) and others have also offered their voices and ideas as well.

The problem though is that these voices and ideas – as good as they may be – don’t necessarily offer a quick fix, which I think, is what most of us want because it’s gone on long enough. That may be unrealistic, but in the end, what do we do?

The first thing everyone needs to do is learn about the problem facing America. We must understand what has been happening, what is happening, and what will happen if things continue. That’s a must. We have to educate ourselves. It’s only in educating ourselves that we begin to see potential solutions and chase fear away. Change can come after that.

If we learn that critical mass has occurred and America is being carried along by forces too powerful to stop, then we will at least know that, won’t we? We can then make decisions that will – hopefully – benefit our family and loved ones at the very least. It will also helps us realize where to put our energy and resources.

For me, I have never been interested in understanding the economy and frankly, when people start talking about how to fix it, my eyes tend to glaze over a bit. I’m not stupid. I just know I have no control over it.

With respect to America’s economy, there are so many things I am not aware of that cause me to shake my head. For years, I’ve been hearing (off and on) about the coming collapse. On one hand, it makes sense that a full economic collapse has to occur at some point because there seems to be so many ways the banking cartel has artificially propped up our economy now (through the Federal Reserve). That cannot last.

I also believe that the Bible teaches that there will come a time when the world will be as one, when there will be a new world order in which ultimately, one individual rules. I know that sounds very far fetched to rational people today, yet the Bible (to me) seems pretty clear on the subject.

If the Bible does speak of a time when there will be a new world order, a final human empire ruled by one person, then one natural question is how will that come about? The other of course, is when will it come about? I can’t answer that one. Sorry.

There are several ways that it can happen. Even I understand that a full collapse of the economy could be created through several scenarios. One of them would be to have a bit of a repeat of the stock market crash that precipitated the Great Depression. However, this stock market crash would have to have a full global impact. It would have to knock the bottom out of the dollar so that a new currency would have to be introduced. If that were to happen, then I could see a new currency rising from the crashed economy of not only America, but the world. (Do some research into North American Union, or the NAU. The results might surprise you. But I’m getting ahead of myself.)

That much, I understand. But even there, things tend to slip by me. I’ve been researching precious metals lately and how their prices are affected by the economy. In my research, I learned about something called “quantitative easing.” As it turns out, Quantitative Easing (or QE) is something that the Federal Reserve uses to try to manipulate the economy. “Quantitative easing (QE) is an unconventional monetary policy used by central banks to stimulate the national economy when standard monetary policy has become ineffective.” Generally speaking, the Federal Reserve essentially prints more money and buys Treasury Bonds from Goldman Sachs to stimulate the economy. It doesn’t work, yet the Federal Reserve continues to try to use it. I wonder why?

Here is a quick – and hilarious – video that will explain it to you.

Now that you’ve watched it, you are probably thinking the same thing I am. These people who are in charge of our economy 1) don’t know what they’re doing, and 2) use techniques to make themselves rich (or richer) while the rest of us suffer from high unemployment, high inflation, and a generally very poor economic outlook.

What can we do about it? I’m not sure that anything we do will make a difference for the economy over all and the federal government continues to plow right along in spite of one scandal after another pretending to be in “oblivious mode.” However, I think we can do things that will help us and our families for the times when things may get extremely difficult economically. Here are a couple of suggestions.

  1. Convert about 10% of your net worth into silver/gold (“junk silver) as it will be worth much more than it is now when the bottom falls out.
  2. Keep that silver/gold out of banks. Stash it at home in a safe place.
  3. Take a no-nonsense approach to life. Buy what’s necessary and stock up on those necessities.
  4. Literally get your house in order. Sell what you no longer need. Live cheaply.
  5. Don’t expect the government to rescue you from future economic problems. It probably won’t happen.
  6. Don’t freak out! Keep a level head. Think clearly.
  7. Trust God to supply your needs.

I wish I had better news, but I’m bracing for future impact. It’s really only a matter of time. The economy will run out of gas and will crash because of it.
