The Gift of Sound Money
Maybe this year it's time to dispense with the toys, clothes, and gift cards? With the ever-expanding debt and deficits of the West, maybe it's time instead to give the gift of education and sound money?
Let's start this post with a quote:
"Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today." – Malcolm X
Wow! In general, that quote has never been more true than it is here in late 2023. However, for the purpose of this post, we should apply that quote to economic history too. For most on your holiday gift list, the idea of "money" begins and ends with some form of government issued or endorsed script. Canadian dollars, U.S. dollars, euros, yen...they're all the same. They're issued without backing or collateral and, as such, are being devalued toward zero with each passing year.
Therefore, a great gift idea for family and friends is the gift of education. And not just any education! Most importantly in this era, give the gift of economic education, monetary history, and sound money.
Here are some ideas. Below are just ten of the titles that reside on the bookshelves of my office. Any of these would make a great gift idea and would certainly leave a more lasting impact than a gift card to Amazon or Starbucks:
- "The Creature From Jekyll Island" by G. Edward Griffin
- "When Money Dies" by Adam Fergusson
- "Gold Wars" by Ferdinand Lips
- "All The President's Bankers" by Nomi Prins
- "The Golden Revolution" by John Butler
- "From West To East" by James Gibson
- "The Money Bubble" by James Turk and John Rubino
- "The Big Reset" by Willem Middelkoop
- "Paper Money Collapse" by Detlev Schlichter
- "A Pocketbook of Gold" by Jim Sinclair and Peter Carlin
Gifts are meant to be wrapped and perhaps placed under a tree. But what about a "stocking stuffer"? The actual thing...the real deal...sound money for generations...can make for a great gift, too, and Sprott Money has made all sorts of great gift ideas available in their annual Holiday Bullion Sale.
