Pensioners are enjoying a gigantic cash subsidy from the government even while the recovery stumbles and interest rates flatline

Graham Watson's curator insight, May 22, 7:02 AM

The Telegraph have struck a chord today - with me, if not with the Tory-voting gerontocracy that usual reads the paper. Pensioners are receiving massive subsidies on all sorts of things, not least healthcare, but the recent pensioner bonds were an utter disgrace. Add in the triple lock on pensions, the "things aren't what they used to be" grant and subsidies for casual racism that are granted to the elderly and...well, OK I made the last two up.

 

But the gist of this article is spot on. Well said, sir!

Usain Bolt has got nothing on Leonidas of Rhodos - investorseurope Stockbrokers

July 30, 2015 
Lausanne, Switzerland

Usain Bolt has got nothing on Leonidas of Rhodos.

Born nearly 2,000 years ago, Leonidas holds the record as the greatest sprinter of all time, winning more Olympic titles than anyone else in human history.

At four straight Olympic games, Leonidas dominated all three sprinting events-- the Stadion (roughly 200 meters), Diaulos (roughly 400 meters), and the bizarre Hoplitodromos-- a 400 meter dash carrying 50 pounds of military gear.

Bear in mind that he competed at a time when there was only a prize for first place. Second place was first loser.

(And they didn’t hand out medals to all the kids just for participating.)

As such, Leonidas was a legend in his own time and was decorated accordingly.

Just like today, in fact, many ancient Greek athletes were rewarded by their city-states for an Olympic victory.

In Athens, the government would award prize money that was equivalent to about 500 sheep.

This was a highly coveted back then; livestock was considered a symbol of wealth and power, so a vast flock of sheep in Ancient Greece may have been the Maserati of its day.

I was particularly interested when I read this because I own some sheep in Chile; they cost the equivalent of about fifty to sixty US dollars in the marketplace.

It’s roughly the same price in the United States for young lamb and slaughter ewes (female sheep) based on USDA data.

But what really floored me was when I found out that the United States Olympic Committee hands out $25,000 in prize money to gold medal winners-- roughly the amount necessary to buy a flock of 500 sheep today.

So over 2,000 years later, the prize money for champions is more or less the same.

Now, let’s consider which of these two is more valuable: $25,000 worth of sheep, or $25,000 worth of fiat money (paper currency).

Fiat money sits in a bank account earning a yield of 0.5%.

(Or if you’re really unlucky, you might even have the privilege of paying your bank interest like they do here in parts of Europe.)

Sheep, on the other hand, yield… more sheep.

Depending on breed, the typical conception rate for sheep is between 65% to 95%, with a gestation period of about 5 months.

So a herd can expand dramatically in a typical breeding season, producing meat, milk, and wool along the way.

Fiat money produces nothing. At least, not for you.

It remains in the hands of the bank where they make the most bonehead financial decisions with it, parking it whatever risky investment fad gets them the biggest annual bonus.

They’ll further act as unpaid agents of the government, freezing you out of your own savings in a heartbeat.

And if you request to withdraw your own money, they treat you like a criminal terrorist.

Now, I’m not trying to convince you to empty your bank account and go buy a flock of sheep.

The point is that productive assets stand the test of time. Paper currency does not.

Always remember that history is inflationary. And while there may be some aberrant years, holding cash will gradually erode your savings.

It’s imperative to make smart, long-term financial decisions. Seek stores of value that can stand the test of time.

In fairness, that’s easier said than done in an environment where every conventional asset class is in a bubble.

Stocks are at all-time highs. Bonds are at all-time highs (earning negative yields in some cases). Banks are perilously illiquid. Many real estate markets are frothy once again.

So it’s a tall order to find safety and stability-- at least, within conventional finance.

Outside the mainstream, though, there are plenty of compelling options.

An heirloom Patek Phillipe wristwatch will likely be a much better store of value to pass on to your grandkids than the usual gift of a US government savings bond.

Productive real estate (including agriculture) can also be a much better alternative than letting money sit in a bank account. It’s like gold, with yield. And the added benefit of providing a place to stay, or even food on the table.

Privately held businesses can also be a great option as they can often be purchased at very low multiples on their earnings, generating instant yields of 40% or more.

And even though most stock are hovering at bubble levels, there are some deep value options available where you can buy shares of a well-managed, profitable business for less than the value of its net assets.

Until tomorrow,

"This committee would encourage the FEC to vigorously investigate who it is that is so stupid that they would think a political committee named 'Stop Hillary PAC' is in any way an authorized committee of Hillary Clinton," he wrote.

Backer then added: "In anticipation of any further harassment of this Committee by partisan agents of any federal candidate intent on hypocritically gagging the opposition, the Committee preemptively advises that it is unaware of any effort by [famed mountaineer] Sir Edmund Hillary to seek federal office."

The Future of Passports - Investors Europe Stock Brokers | SIPPS Self Invested Personal Pensions | Scoop.it
Why St. Kitts & Nevis and Malta's economic citizenship programs are just the beginning for second passport options.
Investors Europe Stock Brokers's insight:
Eurozone Citizenship
Croatia, Slovenia, Albania, Jamaica, and Montenegro are all considering issuing Citizenship by Investment passports. Croatia and Slovenia are EU members and would expand the number of EU countries offering economic citizenship. This is significant, as the EU cannot deny the right to its member countries to “sell” passports, even if they disapprove of the practice. Nor can they deny new passport holders the rights that other EU citizens enjoy, including the right to travel without a visa.

There can be no question that those countries that most wish to confine their own citizens at home if possible, will resent the new passport opportunities being offered in other countries, but limiting their issuance will prove difficult if not impossible

Netanyahou, président de la droite américaine ?, par Serge Halimi (Le Monde diplomatique, 4 mars 2015) | SIPPS Self Invested Personal Pensions | Scoop.it


Il y a une vingtaine d’années, un ancien candidat républicain à l’élection présidentielle américaine avait comparé le Congrès des Etats-Unis à un « territoire israélien occupé ». En 2015, il est devenu inimaginable qu’un dirigeant républicain s’exprime avec autant de perfidie. M. Benyamin Netanyahou et ses idées s’imposent en effet sans résistance et sans effort dans le cénacle des parlementaires de Washington. Ils rencontrent davantage d’opposition… à la Knesset israélienne.

We’ve written a lot about new international standards on transparency that are coming through: technically and politically, they are a vast improvement on a terrible situation – notably the commitment to automatic information exchange – but there’s much still to be desired. One thing we’ve been watching for a while is tax havens paying lip …
Investors Europe Stock Brokers's insight:

'In other words, we’ll summarise:

“we’re going to pretend to implement the international standard, but we are going to decide unilaterally which countries we’ll exchange with. We and our “clients” in those countries will continue to profit from those poor countries that are most vulnerable to our tax haven industry, as we harbour and handle their venal élites’ looted assets, safe in the knowledge that these looted assets can be excluded from transparency and accountability . . .  because of all the venality that we’re helping to facilitate and perpetuate!”...'
