For thousands of years money was real, usually gold or silver, until the Chinese invented paper money to replace real money. They, however, had such a bad time with it, with so many losing everything, time and time again, that it had been outlawed in China for more than a generation before western bankers thought up the idea and convinced King William in 1694 to replace the gold and silver and copper that Englishmen used with their newly printed paper. Thus began a grand experiment that may soon come to an end.
The use of paper money, and a debt-based economy (once known as colonialism or imperialism, then capitalism, now called globalization) may soon be grinding down to a halt as nations around the world try to keep up with the United States in their printing of money. Because of derivatives everyone owes everyone else many times more money than the worth of the entire planet. The Kings of this Banker's Kingdom are killing the golden goose of taxpayers who have been supporting their lavish lifestyle for generations. So entitled are these super-rich that they see nothing wrong with goosing the taxpayers of the world for whatever they want. The United States and indeed the nations of the world exist for their benefit. If you understand this then so much of what goes on in the world becomes understandable, but even they are going to grievously suffer in the near future. Everyone is going to be affected!
The Book of Revelation, the last book in the Bible, refers to what I believe will be a banking world dictatorship which will require all citizens of earth to carry the world leader's mark (micro-chip or micro-computer) in their right hands or forehead in order to buy or sell anything. It specifically says that this will be required of even a king which in today's parlance would also include prime ministers and presidents. Also Interesting is the mention that this mostly One-World Government will be controlled from Babylon (Iraq). Much will have to happen to bring all this about but events happening right now seem to be leading in that direction. Unfortunately fewer and fewer people seem to believe the truths of the Bible or to heed it's warnings. Even with the discovery in the late 20th Century of an actual code hidden within the ancient Hebrew text and accessible only by computer, a code which seems to contain much of the future existence on this planet, scoffers still tend to look on the Bible as merely history or worse yet, myth. We truly live in interesting times and they are going to get incredibly more interesting very soon.
We have already passed the tipping point but only a few see it. Even with the advice in this book your life is going to be greatly different in less than a decade, perhaps by next year. Ignore this book entirely and there is a much higher probability that you will be one of the victims of The Last Days of The Late Great United States.
Richard Pawley has had an interest in the deteriorating value of the United S t a t e s < / s t 1 : p l a c e > < / s t 1 :country-region> dollar since the price of silver was driven up excessively in 1980 by a few billionaires. He did not become aware that inflation was built into the system for the benefit of the few or how "manipulated" the price of gold was for many years. A native of South Carolina who has lived in upstate NY for more than 30 years, he has a background in writing, sales, and semi-conductor manufacturing.
This book is the culmination of years of reading, studying, and trying to find the answer to "who is benefiting from all this?" His conclusion: The only solutions that might work to save our economy will not be tried so it comes down to preparing for the greatest economic transition in the history of the world and there is not much time left to do that. Some fortunes will undoubtedly be made in this Greater Depression which is just beginning to destroy our debt based (or Central Bank based) world economy but this book is about more than that. For many people, success, money, or whatever false gods they have pursued will not be very important by the time the next president (the one after President Barack Obama) takes over the helm of our ship of state. While the author considered calling this book: Beyond Repair: The Death of the Dollar he felt that the current title more aptly covered what was most important because basic necessities, food to survive, shelter, and perhaps fuel to keep warm, will keep people occupied as their primary concern in the very near future. This will not be just an American problem. As Pawley wrote three years ago, it may start here but it will rapidly spread to all the world as all the currencies of the world will be inflated to the point where no one will want them: not dollars, not euros, not pounds, not rupees nor yen (and you can't eat gold). As he said in a previous book "...If we are so hated by those who hate freedom and democracy now, imagine how they are going to love us when the fall of the dollar brings them down as well?" The really sad part in all this is that it all could have been avoided if we had followed the advice and the Constitution of our founding fathers who pledged their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor to create this once great new enterprise, the United States of A m e r i c a < / s t 1 : p l a c e > < / s t 1 : c o u n t r y - r e g ion>.
