Top 5 Ways to benefit from this Inflation !!

Top 5 Ways to benefit from this Inflation !!

Top 5 Things to do to Make Money in The Coming Recession !! A famous quote attributed to Stanford economist Paul Romer is: “A crisis is a terrible thing to waste.” When the electricity goes out, candle sales go up. There's always a business opportunity in a recession. Money doesn't really disappear. People simply begin to save and/or allocate funds to pay off the debt, which created good economic days before the recession. Understanding this cycle will help you tap into the minds of consumers and how they think. Smart businessmen profit from recessions. The whole cycle between boom and bust is vitally essential to the business. You want to buy low and sell high. Warren Buffet - the smartest investor in the world- gave the advice to be greedy when others are fearful (during a recession) and fearful when others are greedy (in a boom) . So the smart businessman accumulates cash and borrowing power in a boom and buys heavily in a recession. Welcome to The Atlantis Report. During recessions, smart businessmen do things they cannot easily do in good times, e.g., they rebuild, restructure, acquire new assets or companies, and they prepare themselves well for the next boom. First of all, they anticipate recessions and are ready for them. This means they have hoarded cash and have become leaner so that they can survive on lower levels of revenue and profitability. In good times, the supply of money and labor supply can be tight. Employees have other employment options because there are plenty of jobs available in the job market. When a recession hits, employees realize that they are lucky to have a job, so they better hold on to it. Therefore employees are on their best behavior during recessions. Best time to restructure your business because there will be the least amount of resistance from your employees. Best time to rebuild things you want rebuilding because you have higher negotiating leverage over your vendors. Best time to borrow money because interest rates will likely to be low. Best time to acquire customers from failing competitors. Good time to buy office space in geographic areas you want to expand because real estate will be cheaper. The following expressions will save you a fortune and reduce your anxiety long-term, I will paraphrase: Wall Street has predicted 3 of the last 20 recessions and crashes. Put 1,000 economists in the room, and you will get 1,000 different answers. Market timing doesn’t work. Stay the course. This quote from Warren Buffett sums it up. "Stop trying to predict the direction of the stock market, the economy, interest rates, or elections." Welcome to The Atlantis Report. “It’s a recession when your neighbor loses his job; it’s a depression when you lose yours.” - Harry Truman (US President 1945-53), This quote from Truman, is just as relevant today. In a recession, companies typically look to cut costs any which way they can – training budgets are cut, working hours may be reduced, and when the outlook is really bleak, jobs are cut too. These are the top 5 things you need to do in order to prepare for the looming recession: #1. Invest every month, regardless of whether markets are going up or down, into stock and bond indexes. #2. Raise your bond indexes as you age. #3. Reinvest your dividends. #4. Never get too excited when markets rise or too depressed when they fall. #5. Take the financial media with a pinch of salt or switch It off entirely. Just look at Trump and Brexit. “Everybody” was so worried in 2016. Look at China and the trade war in 2018–2019. All the while, markets quietly hit new record highs, as they always do long-term. Fear is profitable for the media but not the average investor. The impact of a recession can last a lifetime. Recessions are likely to affect your income (at the very least, it will be much harder to push for a pay rise), but it can also have long term impacts on your income that can last a lifetime. The risk is unusually high for new entrants to the workforce since it is in the early years of your career that you typically see the most massive jumps in salary. Starting a new job during a recession is likely to involve some compromise – perhaps starting at a lower level than you are qualified for or starting work in a completely different industry. Once you leave the workforce, your skills naturally diminish over time, and you become less attractive to future employers. And so it is vital that you continue to build your skills up. This applies whatever your age, fresh out of university, or after spending many years at work. Develop your skills, whatever the outlook is for the economy. When you are employed, take advantage of as much training that your company offers as possible. If you ever get made redundant, gaining access to these resources will be much more difficult and may come at a cost. Whether a recession is looming on the horizon or not, you should always be looking to improve and develop your skills. Of course, it looks great on your resume, but it can also open your eyes up to new opportunities in other industries or other occupations that are less prone to being cut during a recession. In order to avoid the risk that your long term earning potential is hit, it is imperative that you build your skills. For someone close to finishing university, a sensible option (should a recession be imminent) might be to defer entering your career for a couple of years and do some further education. Career risk management. The decision to work for a start-up, an established large company, or, indeed, the other government depends on your career objectives, but it also depends on your risk preference. For example, early in your career, it may pay off to risk working for a start-up with significant upside potential, but being aware that a recession may also hit it hard. At the other end of the scale, working for the government and the public sector can often (but not always) be the most recessionary proof place to work since job cuts are typically far less likely. A recession can also throw up career opportunities. If you can position yourself ahead of the competition, a recession can be the perfect time to jump ship to a new or rapidly expanding industry. This may require moving to a different part of the country you live in, or to a different country entirely. A recession can also be the best time to start your own business. Everything that you need to start a business tends to be cheaper during a downturn ; labor, rent, equipment, materials, credit, etc. A recession start-up will also have less competition and more negotiating power. What about your investments? For investors, opportunities exist across the business cycle. It is often at inflection points in business cycles that tremendous asymmetrical investment opportunities present themselves, i.e., where the odds are in your favor. It’s more important than ever to know where we are in the business cycle. But how should you invest with this knowledge? Let's look at some of the things you should think about when it comes to investment across the business cycle. Inflation protection. Recession is inflations half-sister, Buy gold. All currency is considered "fiat" . Fiat money is a currency without intrinsic value that has been established as money, through regulations. All printed money regulated by governments falls under this definition. Gold, on the other hand, is a real currency. Fiat currency is subject to inflation. Gold is not. For example, back in the day, you could buy a chariot, horses, and a driver for let's say 20 gold pieces. Back in the day, you could also buy, Let's say a Ford model T for 20 gold pieces. Today, you can buy a family car for 20 gold pieces. The power of what gold can buy does not really change; the same example for the family car can also be used for toilet paper or any other purchased goods or service. Gold is the only stable currency. Gold bullion is not considered currency and is usually subject to special care and sometimes assay. Minted gold coins qualify as currency. Both have lasting value. However, bullion has to be sold to convert to fiat currency or fiat credit, whereas coins can be used to buy goods without converting to cash. Only purchase Eagles, Maple Leafs, or Krugerrands. Equities have traditionally been viewed as an inflation hedge asset class since a company’s revenues and earnings should also rise with inflation. From a long-term perspective, equities may, therefore, be considered an inflation hedge. However, this doesn’t always hold over shorter periods of time. Since equities can be thought of as a discounted stream of future cash flows, higher inflation means that the discount rate applied to those cash flows rises, which lowers their current value. Higher interest rates also increase the cost of capital to corporations, and higher inflation means that earnings may be overstated since they depreciate historical cost rather than the replacement cost of assets. To understand how to guard against it, investors first need to be aware of the difference between expected and unexpected inflation. Expected inflation is essentially the market’s consensus view on the future path of inflation. Since financial markets are forward-looking, they presumably incorporate this view into current asset prices. In contrast, inflation risk relates to unexpected inflation. Based on the period 1973 to 2012, periods of high but unexpected inflation have resulted in losses for stocks (versus holding cash). Commodities and gold, in particular, have been much more effective in protecting wealth. Defensive position. If you anticipate that a recession could be closer and perhaps more profound than other people in the market think; then there are various ways you can reduce your risk exposure – both across equities and to different asset classes. Being defensive may involve moving some of your investments to companies and sectors that have traditionally done relatively well during recessions. These non-cyclical sectors tend to be in demand whatever the state of the economy. Examples include utilities (for example, water and energy companies) and consumer staples (tobacco and beer consumption tends to change little during the economic cycle). Another option might be to move some of your wealth into cash. The advantage is that you are then able to react to opportunities - a market crash, for example. But remember, there is an opportunity cost in every decision you make. Moving all of your money to cash means you are not going to be able to capture any upside in the market, and that’s where the next important point comes into play. Focus on the long- term. Your investment horizon is one of the most important things. Are you investing for retirement or something else. When will you need to access some or all of your capital. With these questions in mind, it may not make sense in trying to time the top of the market if what matters is the value of your portfolio in 20 years. In fact, a drop in the stock market should be viewed as a gift – a chance to pick up assets on the cheap. Perhaps the best advice comes from the investor Warren Buffet: “Be careful when others are greedy and greedy when others are fearful.” This means reducing your risk exposure when everyone thinks the economy can only get better and increasing your risk exposure when everyone says it can only get worse. It also means , that you should not come under the influence of emotions and make any impulse decisions, for example selling your stocks if they take a dip. The economic trends are circular, every period of prosperity is always followed by a briefer period of consolidation or recession, and that every recession is followed by an extended period of economic growth. This has been true throughout history, and there’s no reason to think this won’t carry forward into the future. It is the nature of people that creates these booms and busts, and until the nature of humanity changes, the economic cycle is something you can bet on. This Was The Atlantis Report. Please Like.

“If you are an ordinary person, then you can prepare yourself for war by moving to the countryside and building a farm, but you must take guns with you, as the hordes of starving will be roaming. Also, even though the elite will have their safe havens and specialist shelters, they must be just as careful during the war as the ordinary civilians, because their shelters can still be compromised.”

“The modern banking system manufactures money out of nothing. The process is, perhaps, the most astounding piece of sleight of hand that was ever invented. Banks can in fact inflate, mint and un-mint the modern ledger-entry currency.” Major L L B Angus

The few who understand the system will either be so interested in its profits or so dependent on its favours that there will be no opposition from that class, while on the other hand, the great body of the people mentally incapable of comprehending the tremendous advantage that capital derives from the system will bear its burdens without complaint and perhaps without even suspecting that the system is inimical to their interests.
The Rothschild Bros

"Debts must be collected, bonds and mortgages must be foreclosed as rapidly as possible. When, through a process of law, the common people lose their homes they will become more docile and more easily governed through the influence of the strong arm of government, applied by a central power of wealth under control of leading financiers.

This truth is well known among our principal men now engaged in forming an imperialism of Capital to govern the world.

By dividing the voters through the political party system, we can get them to expend their energies in fighting over questions of no importance. Thus by discreet action we can secure for ourselves what has been so well planned and so successfully accomplished."

USA Banker's Magazine, August 25 1924

Cutting Tax Rates stimulates Economic Growth creates more Profit , more Jobs and therefore The Treasury ends up with more Tax Money

Taxation is legalized Theft

"The Objective of the Bank is not the control of a conflict , it's the control of the debt that a conflict produces . The real value of a conflict , the true value is in the debt that it creates . You control the debt , you control everything . this is THE VERY ESSENCE OF THE BANKING INDUSTRY , to make us all , whether we be nations or individuals , SLAVES TO DEBT " An UNKNOWN Banker
