Preserving Wealth


An Alternative To The Dollar

Dear Bob,

I read an on article on the devaluation of the dollar (The Bob Livingston Letter, September 2011) in which you mention alternatives to the dollar. You mention the Swiss franc annuity. Can you elaborate as to how it works and how one would go about to obtain this type of annuity?

Thanks,

J.H.C.

Why Is Everyone Going Bankrupt?

The U.S. economy is in gradual collapse and has been now for several months, along with Europe and most of the world. In the United States, it is common knowledge that bankruptcies are widespread and occurring daily. Almost 46 million people are now on food stamps. No telling how many really are, as government statistics are totally unreliable.

Bury Your Treasure

Even at these prices, I like physical gold as an investment. I prefer bullion to gold stocks. Everyone who has ever owned an ounce of gold wonders how to store it safely. I have experienced a search for missing gold; it was a nightmare.

Buy From A Trusted Dealer

Bob,

Just finished reading your book, “Surviving a Global Financial Crisis and Currency Collapse.”

Absolutely great information much of which I read before elsewhere.

One question comes to mind in your comments on buying gold bullion. You never mentioned “salted gold” and how prevalent it is in the open market?

Curious about your response.

Grecian Formula

Private owners of Greek bonds saw their investments halved yesterday. Devaluing the currency is the modus operandi of the elites as they reach into their bag of tricks to stave off collapse. It will be coming to America soon. They have no choice.

Keep Your Own Coins

Dear Bob,

I just read the October (Bob Livingston) Letter™ and you have been mentioning about taking personal possession of any Gold or Silver that I own. I own some Eagles and some Gold but I called where they are stored and they said if I take delivery I would have to pay tax on the amount. Now how is that any different than buying 10 Silver Eagles and having them delivered to my home? I don’t pay any tax on them. Is there a maximum dollar amount I can withdraw without having to pay tax?

Thanks I enjoy your letters very much

Restructuring Western Economies A Must

Only three years after the world’s financial crisis in 2008, the global economy is slowing down again. At the start of the year, most forecasters expected global gross domestic product to expand in the range of 4.3 percent to 4.5 percent, it probably will only be around 3 percent.

Nominal vs. Real Dollars

Nominal dollars are the everyday paper dollars that we think of and call money. These dollars change every day (depreciate). The value of these dollars goes down constantly as the money printers continue to debase our currency.

Is Switzerland A Role Model For Democracy?

The world economy is in a very fragile state, despite the fact that world gross domestic product is growing at a rate of about 4.3 percent this year. Most of the growth comes from emerging markets like China, Brazil and India. What differentiates these nations from the West is they typically have much lower levels of debt.

Swiss Annuities Still Recommended

Do you still recommend Swiss annuities? Do we have to report them to the Internal Revenue Service beginning June 30, 2012? An IRS tax consultant I talked to said I do. The IRS tax consultant also said I owe an excise tax on the Swiss annuity. If this is correct, do you have any information on how to figure that or know someone who does?
