Oftentimes, we feel like we are wandering the labyrinth of life without anything really happening. Most of the big news is on the periphery of our lives, and if you don’t go out of your way to watch or read the news, it won’t really affect you. The fortunes of businesses and countries ebb and flow (especially in Financial Crises), but in our cushy, sheltered lives, there is often little reason to care.
But you should care. And so should everyone else.
The events of the past 40 years have set into motion a course of events that will cumulate in a wealth transfer unlike any the world has known.
Wealth transfers happen every day. If you buy a stock, and it falls, your purchasing power has been transferred to the guy that sold you the stock. He can buy the same stock again and still have some cash left over—his purchasing power has increased.
The Wealth Cycle Principle hinges on a giant cyclical wealth transfer. In the history books, this type of wealth transfer happens every once in a long while, but this time around, as WealthCycles.com readers know, things are going to be different. Sometimes, people may think you are off your rocker when you tell them about wealth cycles, but once they study the cycles, they, too, will know about the wealth transfer that will occur in our lifetime. Here are the top four reasons to share your understanding of the Wealth Cycle Principle with others:
1.It will affect them—After World War II, the world become increasingly interlinked–not just through trade, but through culture, technology, and finance as well. Today international trade is an integral part of almost every country’s wealth—and the U.S. dollar is the lifeblood of international trade. Around the world, goods are bought and sold, loans are made, and even taxes are paid in U.S. dollars.
If the U.S. dollar spirals into the historical dustbin of failed currencies—it will affect the entire globe. In the most recent Financial Crisis, real estate problems in the U.S. quickly mutated and spread throughout the globe—demonstrating just how global our economy has become. When our fiat currency and debt-based economic system fails—as it inevitably will—everyone on Earth will be affected, either for the better or for the worse.
2.It can make them better off—Many people get scared by the idea of failing currencies or countries. Change scares everyone. But if you have knowledge of where things are headed, you can not only protect yourself, you can position yourself for spectacular gains. As the old saying goes—‘there’s always a bull market somewhere.’
There has never been a time when the asset class of choice can be “panicked into.” People don’t panic into tech stocks or real estate in fear that their wealth will evaporate. Gold and silver are hard assets with tremendous potential to make gains, but have also been the safe haven of choice for thousands of years.
3.It can prevent them from becoming worse off—At WealthCycles.com, one of our more ambitious goals from the beginning was to spread our message to everyone. But we quickly realized that not everyone was willing to listen. During any wealth transfer, wealth must be transferred to someone and awayfrom someone else. As with most things in life, there is a winner and a loser. It has become more important to us to share our message with everyone who will listen—but that doesn’t mean we stop trying to communicate. In a big wealth transfer such as that to come, the gains to the winners will be big, but the losses for the losers will be worse.
4.The power of the network—One of the biggest factors that distinguishes this bull market from past ones is information. The internet and social networks have become troves of data, information, and analysis–some accurate and useful, some not so much. But once the word is out, it will spread like wildfire thanks to the interconnected nature of the world.
We encourage you to tell people you know about the Wealth Cycle Principle, so that they can make decisions for themselves, and position themselves and their families to be safe—and perhaps even to prosper from the biggest wealth transfer in history.
