Government Policies Could Affect Your Retirement – with this Financial Instrument

Have you noticed? The U.S. government sometimes uses crises to introduce new controls.

Take the PATRIOT Act.

Just 45 days after 9/11, thanks to this legislative act, the government gained new powers of control.

The pandemic was another perfect example.

Washington bureaucrats increased Americans' dependence on the government through stimulus checks.

But at the same time, it increased some U.S. citizens’ dependence on government through spending bills that expanded an already overgrown safety net.

In a way, this amounts to an expensive social engineering experiment:

"...the most significant expansion of the nation’s safety net since the war on poverty in the 1960s ... legislation that would touch virtually every American’s life, from conception to aged infirmity."[1]

– Jonathan Weisman

This could cause problems for American citizens.

  • Massive spending increases, no matter what legislative act they are a part of, could intensify already rapidly growing inflation & consumer prices.
  • Average annual deficits are projected to be in the trillions going forward.[2]
  • This spending could grow the deficit another 60% in 10 years (with proposed legislation).[3]


NOW, add this new financial instrument:

a “digital dollar.”

Fed chairman Jerome Powell said: The digital dollar is a “high-priority project for us.”[4]

This could mean...

  • Every dollar you receive or save could be tethered to the Fed system.
  • We could witness dollar-debasing ultra-negative interest rates.[5]
  • Personal transactions could be digitally traceable.[6]

Here is the good news:

If you have an IRA, 401(k) or other retirement account, we can show you a little-known alternative: backing your retirement with physical gold and silver...

Respected professionals often tell us gold and silver are important to diversifying retirement savings.

Before becoming chairman of the Federal Reserve, Alan Greenspan shared his view of deficit spending – and the only way to defend against it:

"Deficit spending is simply a scheme for the ‘hidden’ confiscation of wealth. Gold stands in the way of this insidious process. It stands as a protector of property rights."[7]

– Former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan

The same could be said of the digital dollar. Will it be just another way to control money?

Even Wall Street managers are planning a big move to gold.[8] Shouldn’t you consider it too?
