International Investments - Inflation Fighters

By Gary Scott

If you read the front page of any newspaper yesterday you know that inflation in the US is rising….that is if you have not been reading our messages. If you have, then you already know. Better still. if you have tried to buy anything lately, you have not needed me or the newspapers to tell you that prices are up and not standing still.

In one of next week’s messages we’ll look at my portfolio and how I am fighting inflation. However a reader recently asked this question.

“Gary, Good points. One more thing is sneaking up from the trillions of wasted on things like the drug war and Iraq war. Inflation is once again rearing its very ugly head. I'm in the construction business. We are seeing almost weekly increases in commodities that are freaking out the developers and general contractors. I heard a report last night on late night radio by one economic prognosticator who has an\ accurate past record. He reported that he has personally SEEN millions of red-colored US bills in storage in Amsterdam already being set aside like Japan and South Africa did in the 80's to protect their currency to create a two-tier currency. Meanwhile Fed chairman Bernake is making stupid comments like he would "inflate to whatever extent I have to and throw it from helicopters" to keep the US economy afloat. That will only sink it faster. In both cases in Japan and South Africa the domestic currency was inflated wildly while the international "dollar" was supported. Anyway this guy said the Fed is now printing SO much money to keep the economy floating that he is predicting a financial inflationary collapse by around November 2007. I think he's spot on. What would be the best financial steps to take to protect oneself from such a scenario if one is committed to living here? Buy more gold? Maybe moving is the only solution. Zimbabwe is undergoing this right now, 1500% annual inflation and the country is about to collapse. I have a friend that lives there. Best, Bob “

My answer to Bob is that gold, silver, commodities, real estate, shares are the best answers to inflation. These investments make a few people rich when the majority are finally called to task for their excesses. Fixed incomes and worker salaries always get screwed the most in inflation.

Learn more about fighting inflation by investing in emerging currencies, gold, silver, Ecuador, import-export, overseas markets and more.
