The staggering national debt, banking crisis, financial collapse, out of control government and stagnant economy has led many to abandon hope for financial freedom. The visions that many people had of a comfortable retirement offering the ability to travel and pursue other interests has evaporated into a puff of smoke. Many people feel that they do not know where to turn. Investors who bought into the orthodoxy of steady investment in the stock market to build long-term wealth have been decimated by boom and bust market cycles.
The American Monetary Association believes that a new and innovative understanding of wealth, value, business and investment is necessary to thrive in the new reality of big government, big deficits and monetary destruction. We have reached a point where our national debt is so large that it is impossible to repay that the only way out is inflation.
Due to likely increases in interest rates, the rising interest payments on our national debt make it is unlikely the U.S. will be able to balance its budget ever again. Foreigners will eventually stop lending to an irresponsible United States and the Federal Reserve will continue to create fiat money to fund massive deficit spending. Success in this environment will require people to structure their income and assets so that the tide of an inflationary future sweeps them to wealth instead of financial despair.
The American Monetary Association is not an investment advisor and are not selling products or services. We are a non-profit organization that helps to educate people about the fundamentals of success in our emerging world of irresponsible government, massive deficits and monetary expansion. We support a system of financial success that is based on the ownership of real assets that are financed with long term fixed-rate debt and produce regular income. This will allow investors to benefit from irresponsible monetary policy as it pushes up the nominal value and nominal income certain assets while “outsourced” interest payments remain fixed, providing investors a natural arbitrage.
At the same time, we also understand that short-term factors like high unemployment, de-leveraging by financial institutions, and weak consumer demand create deflationary pressures. We support a strategy that is optimized for both long-term inflation and short-term deflation. By focusing on cash producing assets, fluctuations in market prices can be deflected if the assets are purchased with fixed-rate financing as the cash flow allows investors to ride out the market value changes since their debt payments are fixed and the cash flow allows them to carry the financing indefinitely.
