50 Random Facts About . . .
Let's start with the basics. I have some characteristics that
no other matter on Earth has...
I cannot be destroyed by;
I don't need:
I have no:
As a metal, I am uniquely:
As money, I am:
I am internationally accepted, last for thousands of years, and probably most important, you can't make any more of me.
"Gold Is Money"
You've heard that statement before - but do you know what it really means? Money is a medium of exchange and a store of value. Almost anything can be used as money, but obviously some things work better than others. It's hard to exchange things people don't want' and other things don't store value well. Over thousands of years, I have emerged as the best form of money (along with silver).
The paper dollars in your wallet are technically a currency, not real money. In other words, they are a government substitute for money. The man you call Aristotle best defined the primary reasons why I'm considered money: a good form of money must be durable, divisible, consistent, convenient, and have value in and of itself.
So you see, there's no superstition here. It's simply common sense. I am particularly good for use as money, just as aluminum is good for making aircraft, steel is good for the structures of buildings, uranium is good for fueling nuclear power plants, and paper is good for making books. If you try to make airplanes out of lead or money out of paper, you're in for a crash.
And by the way, don't fret about those who say I'm not as good an asset as an income-producing vehicle. They misunderstand my role. I'm not trying to be a stock, for example. My function is as money and a store of value, so the proper comparison is to your dollars, or what you call Treasury Bills (of similar nominal value). And here is where I excel and serve my purpose: since 1913, the US dollar has lost 96% of its purchasing power. I have lost none.
Remember, I am the only financial asset that is not simultaneously someone else's liability. I don't require the backing of any bank or government.
The History Lesson
Because I am eons old, I've observed something throughout history that you may not have thought much about: government fiat currencies are a relatively new invention, and none has endured. Eventually, they have all failed. Me? I've never been defaulted on or worth zero. Remember this the next time you have any doubts about my long-term worth.
Another of my roles is to protect your purchasing power. Here are a few examples of how my purchasing power has endured:
You can rest assured that over time, I will hold my value. And when you near the end of your life, you can pass me on to your loved ones, knowing full well they will have something that cannot be devalued, debased, or destroyed.
What Color Is Your Money?
Like you, I'm concerned about the current state of fiscal and monetary affairs. It seems your government leaders have boxed themselves into a corner. They've incurred too much debt and are spending too much money. It's important that you understand some lessons from history about this kind of behavior so that you're certain of what I can do for you.
The common denominators that lead to the downfall of every fiat currency are the two big Ds: debts and deficits. With that in mind, consider the following:
The solution many of your leaders are pursuing is to create more currency units. Here's an updated picture of the increase in the US monetary base vs. my rise in price since 2008, when your problems starting surfacing.
(Click on image to enlarge)
The monetary base has grown 205.8%, while my price is up 65.8%. This alone implies that my price in dollars is likely to climb much higher.
This is also the reason why I'm not in a bubble, as some have tried to claim. It is your central banks and bond markets that are in a bubble. The fact that my price is rising is a warning that what your leaders are doing is unsustainable and potentially dangerous to your currency.
Think about this: the US has debt backed by debt, based on debt, dependent on debt, and leveraged with debt. You can, for example, buy a bond (i.e., lend money) on margin (i.e., with borrowed money). This is not a sound way to run financial markets.
Meanwhile, the warning bells continue to sound regarding Europe's debt crisis. In just the past 30 days:
The European crisis is far from over; and the path of least resistance for politicians is to create more currency units. This action can and will have clear and direct consequences: currencies will devalue, and inflation - perhaps hyperinflation - will result.
Once again, I encourage you to use me to protect some of your wealth.
How Much Is Enough?
Given the state of your monetary system, you should accumulate me on a regular basis. Just buy some every month and put it in a safe place. After what I've witnessed throughout history, and based on the current path your government leaders insist on pursuing, I suggest using me as your savings vehicle instead of putting dollars in a bank.
If you don't own enough of me when these fiscal troubles really accelerate, I fear you will regret it. I've warned many in the past about the dilution of nations' currencies, and those who didn't heed my warnings experienced severe financial pain. Excuses won't pay the mortgage nor feed the family when the effects of currency debasement hit your home and pocketbook.
Make sure you own enough of me to make a difference to your portfolio. This means having more than a couple.
How do you know if you own enough? Ask yourself:
...would you feel that you own enough of me?
Buy a sufficient amount so that as your currency continues to lose value, your portfolio won't. If you do your part, I promise that I'll do mine.
Your monetary friend,
CONSIDER ALL OF THE FOLLOWING...
Most customers when looking to BUY Gold, ANY gold, usually deal with RETAIL. All they typically see or know to compare is price.
Some retail companies may give them a special discount for a purchase. But it's still retail without other financial rewards. When the deal is done, IT'S ALL DONE.
And without knowing all the features and
benefits included in KARATBARS, they may jump to
conclusions. They don't know. For many, it may not
be that important to them. But those who
want the facts will get them.
So LOGICALLY, without some explanation, someone
may ASSUME that Karatbars is in some kind of "BAKE SALE"
and simply include it with other "gold"
companies. It's LOGICAL...But INVALID.
So, why should one NOT look at only price to make an accurate, informed complete comparison?
Karatbars has the lowest price for their gold category. Compare BMW to BMW, not Ford to BMW. Google: kinebar grade 1 gram gold .
But before we get into all the reasons why owning a 1-gram Karatbar makes far more sense in this economy than owning a 1-ounce bar-even though the same amount of gold may be lower in price, let's compare prices of several 1-gram bars:
As of mid-February, 2012, when $1 (USD) exchanges for 1.32 Euros, the price of a 1-gram Karatbar was approximately $78. It's not what it costs; it's what the market says it's worth. Cost and worth are two different things, much like an acre of land on the U.S west coast inMalibu is worth more than an acre of land in Iowa. Karatbars is "prime real estate": It costs less than comparable 1-gram gold bullion bars of this quality; it resells for more; and it holds its value out of the vault.
KARATBARS are private issue (produced by a private refinery and mint and exclusive to Karatbars) 999.9% 24-carat Gold Bullion... and are not subject to seizure under the current International Bullion Laws and U.S. Law.
Gold coins that have minted and issued from any government can be recalled to issuer (the government). All gold from Karatbars is privately issued and CANNOT be confiscated by any so-called authority.
Karatbars carry the LBMA certification which lends them to be "Good for Settlement of Debt "http://lbma.org.uk/pages/index.cfm
You, as an Affiliate, are responsible to report any earnings to the local authorities (country, state, etc), (Terms & Conditions). Karatbars DOES NOT REPORT to any Affiliate earning to any government body.
Karatbars falls under the International Bullion Laws set forth by the World Trade Organization under the Harmonious Tax Code.
ANY and ALL gold
purchases and gold coin purchases that are done in USA are
RECORDED. The U.S. government knows exactly who has
what. Most coins are PURE gold on the ALLOY Standard -
91.9% - because 24-carat is too soft. You do
not actually OWN any government-issued coins; you are
merely THE BEARER of the coins.
Governments in financial duress can "recall" gold coins
and only pay bearer FACE VALUE only. Ask yourself this:
"Where do you think the U.S. government is going get the
gold to restock THEIR shelves?"
Karatbars accounts are private and SECURE, more so than the FDIC, CDIC, or ANY gold sales in the USA or Canada.
100% of all funds
you deposit into your Karatbars account are used to buy gold
bullion. There are no extra fees.
All transactions are recorded by username and account number. When verified by German authority auditors, you only need to verify your account number, deposit, and whether the deposit was transferred into physical gold and transferred to the vault or shipped to you, the Customer. Germany is possibly the toughest country in the European environment in which to do business.
We merely have our own personal Karatbars accounts, and we can refer others to get their own private Karatbars account. We do not sell financial paper instruments, nor does Karatbars. Affiliates do not sell gold; Karatbars does, OFFSHORE. Some licensed gold resellers do resell Karatbars. Only Karatbars account holders can make referrals, and we are rewarded for referring others. New Account holders can get a Karatbars account only by being referred by a Karatbars Affiliate account holder.
Although we resemble a leveraged type of
marketing structure, we are NOT considered MLM in any
country. Karatbars is an e-commerce Affiliate business
model. Our Compensation Plan pays out only when paper
money is exchanged into gold money. That's it.
There are NO enrollment fees, etc.
Karatbars in 1-gram weights have many more benefits than gold in 1-ounce weights. They are both gold, but it's like comparing an apple to a rock! You CANNOT compare by price. The features and benefits are simply too far apart.
USE GOLD TO BUY GOODS AND SERVICES, NOT AS AN INVESTMENT!
The majority of those who look at gold will ALWAYS start by comparing price, thinking the only reason to own gold would be as an investment. It is not. They do not understand that one ounce of gold is one asset class, and one gram of gold is a totally different asset class, even though they are both gold. Even though they are both gold, the benefits of owning a gram of gold compared to owning an ounce of gold are significant. Karatbars is about owning 1-gram gold bullion ingots that you could use as a form of exchange, much like you use paper money and credit/debit cards. It would be much more difficult doing that with larger weights of gold and certainly not with a 1-ounce gold coin. Following are things to consider when buying gold:
IS IT REAL? KARATBARS CANNOT BE COUNTERFEITED
Gold can and is being counterfeited. In order to know the gold is not fake or counterfeit, one must sell that gold to a gold dealer who has the tools to confirm it is pure. With Karatbars, ANY merchant who is taught what to look for with the naked eye can quickly and easily determine that every Karatbars is not a fake because it has:
You want to own 1-gram Karatbars so that your gold does not need to be sold and converted back to paper money in order to get some future use out of them.
Withal weights of gold there is a buy-back price that's less than the sell price. With Karatbars there are MANY more options available than simply selling them back.
Only Karatbars allows one to find a way to get at or near the current day's retail value when ready to dispose of some.
NO NEED TO USE MORE THAN IS NECESSARY
If you own an ounce of gold, and need only a few hundred dollars, you will need to sell the whole ounce. If you have high inflation, you will want to leave as much as possible in gold. The inconvenience of finding a dealer willing to give you a fair price without having to stand in line etc., is something to consider as well. Karatbars (1-grams) eliminate the need to convert to cash or use more than is required at that time. You cannot chip off a piece from an ounce and expect anyone to give you just that amount in paper cash or goods and services.
THE MASSES CANNOT AFFORD TO BUY IN LARGE AMOUNTS
Karatbars bring gold to the masses. Almost everyone can afford to buy $65 at a time.
EARN FREE GOLD
Anyone, without ANY fees or costs, is able to introduce others to Karatbars and earn a commission. Yes, you can buy 100 grams of gold or an ounce if you choose. But why not, with very little effort, introduce others and have your gold bought with commissions earned?
Karatbars Gold has ALL the bells and
whistles on it in its standard
Produced by an LBMA-certified "good delivery"
refinery. See http://LBMA.org.uk (Click on "Good
Delivery� tab / Gold List. Scroll down to
Turkey. Click "Atasay..."), Karatbars
are good for "settlement of debt" worldwide. Do not
take the LBMA-certification lightly: It takes 3 years of
zero issues for a refinery to get LBMA-certified. Our
Karatbars cannot be counterfeited, and are verifiable by
obvious and instant inspection.
Gold deposits are stored in large bars until ready to be minted into card denominations of your choice (0.5 gram, 1 gm, 2.5 gm, and 5 gm ingot cards. Until Karatbars has expanded to every country we can possibly in, we only offer 1-gram ingot cards.
You can sell
to other Karatbars Customers or Affiliates. (I sold 19 grams for
$1290, that day's sell price, for a Customer who wanted part of
his 100 grams sold, and I did it all in 1 day.) Use
Karatbars to buy goods and services within the Acceptance
Points Network(merchants). Soon, we will be able to exchange
fractions of a gram online, not using the cards.
EARNING FREE GOLD is better than buying it at ANY discount. That being said, you can see the 5g card approximates the spot price
The purpose of this section is to help you understand the parts of the Karatbars pay plan that really matter. If you download the affiliate pay plan document, you will see that there are 7 income options. Let me save you some time and tell you that:
Now that I have narrowed down the pay plan to income options 4 and 5, let's note that the Package Bonus is not a residual income option. Affiliates are only required to purchase a package one time. So read through the pay plan document and see how it works.
So finally we get to the real meat and potatoes of the pay plan: Income Option #5, the so-called "dual-team" or "dual-system" bonus. This income option is truly binary payout regardless of what you might hear. So, if the binary is the meat and potatoes, then how do we put food on our plate in Karatbars? One thing only: the fact that every gram of gold purchased puts 1 unit in your binary. This is what powers your organization and allows for the gigantic yet mathematically accurate gains presented in the 12-week plan to financial freedom.
