“He that walks with wise men shall be wise.” – Proverbs 13:30
This proverb has become my simple rule for gaining both wisdom and prosperity. After several years, I am happy to announce a renewed partnership between WND and Swiss America.
Over the years, I have come to respect and trust Swiss America Chairman Craig R. Smith because he offers such a wise and balanced perspective on today’s increasingly confusing financial world.
Likely you’ve seen Craig on TV as a frequent guest on Fox News and Fox Business, where he has served as the go-to spokesperson for small business on a wide variety of topics during the turbulent Obama years and now during the unpredictable Trump years.
Craig has helped to guide WND out of some close financial calls in the past because he believes in our cause, as does our beloved celebrity commentator Pat Boone, who has also served as Swiss America’s national spokesperson for over 20 years.
Craig’s passion is to educate the public about the economic realities of our time. He believes we’ve been hoodwinked by so-called experts into thinking of gold as either “just another commodity” or “just another investment.”
For over 35 years, Craig has told the public the full story: that gold is neither a commodity nor an investment; it is the world’s most trustworthy store of value, time and labor – it’s real global money!
Former Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan agrees. He recently defined gold as the “primary global currency,” adding, “We would never have reached this position of extreme indebtedness were we on the gold standard, because the gold standard is a way of ensuring that fiscal policy never gets out of line.”
Today’s U.S. dollar has morphed from a promise to pay a specific weight measurement of gold or silver into a nebulous promise to pay an immeasurable weight of debt. Our economy and money system, once a solid gold-based monetary system, has gradually become a politically faith-based system.
Craig points out that from the beginning of recorded history, men have perverted honest money and sought to counterfeit it with everything from clay tablets (dating back to ancient Babylon) to today’s modern computerized credit/debt systems. Such forms of symbolic money (credit and debt) are intangible and can be easily manipulated by the powerful to enrich themselves at others’ expense.
Furthermore, modern banking principles have usurped the gold- and silver-based economic system, which served our nation well between 1792 and 1913. Since then, bankers have created a credit system using only money substitutes, which throughout history always collapse to their intrinsic value – zero.
In today’s corrupt world of floating currency values and artificially low, Fed-induced interest rates, market values have been greatly distorted – making it nearly impossible to correctly identify the true value of every other asset.
In a world so full of fake political and economic news, I consider Craig Smith and the entire Swiss America team to be a reliable source of common-sense financial counsel on anything concerning money management and asset diversification.
So whether you own stocks, bonds, ETFs, mutual funds, annuities, land or other investments, it would be wise to contact Swiss America to get a second opinion as well as to help insure that you are properly diversified against unforeseen adverse events that may be looming.
Because the risks to your investments are growing daily, I urge WND readers to contact Craig Smith’s firm for a complimentary Portfolio Risk Assessment, for the safety of your savings and retirement.
