Philip N. Diehl’s Excellent Enterprise Radio Interview

Enterprise Radio features intriguing interviews with a host of different people from the world of business. Philip N. Diehl, the President of U.S. Money Reserve, visited the program to discuss a topic dear to his heart: gold coins. Specifically, he talked about the value of gold coins as they relate to investing. PR Newswire summarized some nice highlights from the interview. Listening to the entire interview is strongly suggested.
What makes Diehl’s interview so engaging is he does not try to make a huge sales pitch for gold. Instead, he discusses a number of reasons why gold investing is so popular. One reason is people are (wisely) worried about the policies of the Federal Reserve. Weak monetary policy could lead to currency devaluation which, in turn, means a loss of net worth. Gold acts as a hedge against weak currencies since gold is a precious metal. Ironically, gold coins produced by the U.S. Mint are legitimate currency backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. government.

Diehl, a former Director of the U.S. Mint, suggests gold coins make a good investment when they are backed by a government. Obviously, legitimately minted U.S. coins are not going to be deemed lacking in any claimed value. Diehl reveals imports of bars and bullion, sadly, are sometimes counterfeit. People paying thousands of dollars for these dubious assets eventually found out they are worthless. And they find out the hard way.

Diehl does note some of the interest in gold is due to buying and selling on the part of speculators. Diehl does caution about following in the steps of a trader. He feels gold is best served as an investment put away for many years. Diehl is not into trading or flipping gold for a quick profit. He feels such an approach is just a bit too risky.

Whatever the reason one chooses to invest in gold, buying from the right seller is always a good idea. U.S. Money Reserve sells a host of U.S. Mint-produced coins and this should put customers at ease. Additionally, U.S. Money Reserve puts a lot of emphasis on good customer service. Everything from the initial inquiry to the eventual shipping is done with a sharp emphasis on making sure the customer is happy. Read more: US Money Reserve TV Commercials – iSpot.tv

Diehl notes he was one of the few Directors who really pushed customer service while at the U.S. Mint. Under his leadership, the U.S. Mint achieved an exceptional amount of distribution growth. Diehl brought his deep commitment to keeping customers happy to U.S. Money Reserve. Things are working well and customers are thrilled.

The interview is an intriguing one. Those wondering about how the gold market works definitely should give it a listen.

Venezuela’s Hunger Games

At least 400 people have been arrested by Venezuelan state police after the latest scourge of looting and rioting due to the country’s persistent food shortages. The Venezuelan Observatory of Violence reported that at least 10 episodes of looting happens on a daily basis in the country. And according to Aserne, a handful of people have been shot and killed by police and soldiers in this week alone.
Amidst the chaos President Nicolás Maduro is accusing opposition parties of waging an economic war against him in an attempt to overthrow his regime. He has made similar grandstanding claims in the past, but so far for expert Manuel Gonzalez has done virtually nothing to quell the violence that is spreading like wildfire across the country. Even if voted out of office, his vice-President would take over, meaning the political party in power now would still remain in power even after being symbolically ousted by the voice of the people.

Why Is George Soros Stubbornly Increasing his Investment in Gold?

It has always been safer to invest in Gold especially when risks for other investment options are escalating. Most economists say that if you want to sit turbulence, do it with gold. In an article that appeared in the Wall Street Journal, Billionaire investor George Soros is reported to have taken a bet on gold of US$264 million. George Soros bought the shares in the Canadian gold miner hence increasing to 1.7% his stake in the gold miner company.

George Soros is known for taking investment risks and making crazy bets. Though not all his bets pay off, most of them have paid off and making him so much wealth. In him growing his stake in Gold investment, George must be up to something, and that is what every person keen on investment trends wants to understand. George Soros historical interest can be traced to the fact that he is Hungarian born. He fled Budapest just before the start of World War II to London. Some people have interpreted his bet on gold as betting against the Euro and the European Union unraveling. Visit the site opensocietyfoundations.org to know more about George Soros.

From his recent comments, Soros seem to believe that the American economy could have a repeat of the crisis experienced in 2008. There are already risks threatening to take the economy back there like the Chinese Yuan revaluation and Italy leaving the Euro. According to Soros, the situations remind him of the 2008 crisis. George Soros could be safeguarding himself from the losses that can be brought about by such risks.

A Bearish George Soros Is Trading Again

The big question remains whether Soros is betting on a decline in the United States stock market, or he is just trying to hedge his portfolio by use of these options. The market is also watching to see whether he will reduce his Stock investment further. According to Todd Salamone, Schaeffer’s Investment Research senior vice president of research there is not such a significant risk in the stock market. He says that either Soros made a significant bet against stocks or if his aim is a hedge Soros doubled his caution.

Born in Hungary and holding two citizenships (Hungarian and American), George Soros has been known to make money whether markets are going up or down. His market observation is therefore trusted, and many investors give an ear to his market interpretations. He rose to fame in September 1992 when he risked $10 billion speculating on a single currency the British pound. On a single day, he generated profits of $1 billion. Due to this, he is famously known as “the man who broke the Bank of England.”

George Soros is also known for running the Quantum Fund, which generated an annual return of over 30% when he was at the helm. Apart from being a renown investor, George Soros is an author and a philanthropist. He has fourteen books to his name advising on investment and challenges facing the European Union. Soros philanthropic activities started in the 1970s when he began funding black students in South Africa to attend the University of Cape Town.

Wen by Chaz passes the test

Infomercials have always been designed to make a product look great. These tactics may cause a product to look amazing even if it does not measure up to what they are advertised to be. Knowing this, many of us are skeptical about ordering anything off of the television. According to a recent article one consumer felt this particular way about the Wen Hair Cleansing Conditioner. She felt the advertisement was too good to be true and so she decided to give the product a test.
Emily McClure was the skeptical buyer that decided to order the WEN hair cleansing conditioner that she had seen advertised on Ebay. McClure described her hair as being thin and wasn’t really sure that a conditioner would be able to change that.

McClure goes through the motions of trying the product [http://www.wen.com/before-after.html] while she showered. One of the first things that she noticed was how much of the product was required to put in her hair. The instruction called for 10-16 pumps on short hair, 16-24 on medium length hair, and 24-32 on longer hair. McClure followed instructions and was pleased at the results. According to McClure, the thickness of her hair began to change in the shower and she also notice that less of her hair was being shed as the water rinse through it.

The WEN Cleansing Conditioner received a stamp of approval by McClure. Her seven day journey with the product allowed her hair to become luscious and thicker.

Reversal of Fortune for Laidlaw and Its Principals?

Brian Bonar: Still Going Strong

That isn’t Brian Bonar, however. He is always burning the midnight oils, putting in the extra effort, and putting himself out there. He isn’t looking to just take it easy, kick back, and say, “Well, I’ve done my job. Let me relax now.” In fact, it is the opposite for him. He is looking for ways to improve, expand, grow, and become even stronger and better. That is proven by his recent award, which was the Cambridge Who’s Who® Executive of the Year in Finance. Keep in mind, now, that only two men and two women get this award every year.

Brian Bonar is always looking to keep things fresh and interesting. He doesn’t like to get comfortable or content. In his mind, those are two of the worst things that a CEO or a Chairman can be. This award will not change his style, his approach, or how he runs his business. It will make him work even harder to prove that the award was given to him for a reason and he has earned it. That is Brian Bonar, though. He likes to work for things. He doesn’t want anything to be given to him on a silver platter. He prefers to roll up his sleeves, get down and dirty, and keep working as hard as possible.
