The Magnificent Culture of Singapore

At the beginning of this year, I planned for a short term trip to Singapore that would happen during the fall months. I figured that this was the best period to see Singapore because the seasons would begin to change, and I would get to experience the best of the country. Also, this was the time period when I would be able to go on vacation because I would be able to take days off from work. I looked for the best short term rental in Singapore for my living arrangements. Since I was staying there for a few months, and I didn’t think it would be a good idea to pay the high prices that a hotel would offer.

I was able to find a good apartment for rental.

Great Senior Care Services in Nassau County

I really don’t like talking about dementia but sometimes, you have to face the facts. The facts right now are that I am in a situation where my mother is developing dementia, and it is actually getting pretty bad at the moment. So I am trying to find senior care in Nassau county for her, because her dementia has made it so that it is a lot more difficult for her to take care of her everyday life. It makes me sad, but it is the new reality that I have to deal with.

it is not a very pleasant reality, but there is no use in trying to hide from the truth, or not to face it.

It Will Be Nice to Move to a State That Offers Choices

My best friend and I ran a business together for about 15 years. Sadly, she passed away. As I mulled over the thought of what to do next, my husband brought up the option of us selling the business and moving to Texas. We had always wanted to move there to be closer to our daughter, and we could start the business from our new location. Soon after, I was complaining about the high utility bill for my business to one of my children when we were on the phone. She told me that my commercial energy costs may be lower in her state because you can choose who you get your service from. This was a surprise to me because you have no choice where I presently live.

I have always thought it odd that something like purchasing utilities has been taken over by some city government officials.

How Do You Regrow a Root Canal

I am sort of looking for more information on the topic ofRegenerative endodontics. If you are interested that means that you use biological procedures to replace the damaged parts of a tooth. I had not heard of it and it sounds like it might be something that you could get a great deal of traction from if you knew how to do it. Of course Endodontics is about the treatment of the pulp of the tooth, or as people would think that is a root canal. It is not going to be any more fun this way I am guessing, but that seems like it would be a lot safer if you did it the right way.

My New Apartment is Better Than the House I Lived in Previously

I had lived in a home for many years, but after a divorce, needed to find a place to rent for myself. My wife and I sold the house and split the proceeds, but I just was not ready to buy a new place to live in yet. I wanted something smaller. A buddy of mine lives at the Alicante Villla a few minutes from me. However, I had never been there to take a look at the place myself. He always said that he loved the place, and I wondered if I might like living there, too.

I gave him a call and asked him about it. I wanted to know what he liked about the place. He had been living there for three years, so there must be some nice things about it.

What Does a Roofing Contractor Need to Have for Their Customers?

There are way too many ignorant roofing contractors out there and you need to be aware of everything they offer before you even begin to consider them. Hiring an unprofessional roofing contractor would just add to the other problems you already have. To avoid this, here are some tips below on what a roofing contractor needs to have so you know you’re hiring a true professional.

Trusted Trained Roofers

In some companies, they might hire roofers who have little to no training. If this is the case, your roof could be in jeopardy. Make sure that the roofer you hire have trusted and properly trained roofers to work on your project. Dedication to your house is the number one thing they need to have. Ask for a face to face with the manager and be open, telling them directly about what you are anxious about. A good company will also offer the best team of people they have.

Great Supervision

Because we all have full time jobs, it’s impossible for you to supervise the roofers all the time to see how they work. In this case, make sure that the roofing contractor for your home improvement project has an onsite manager that will always be there to supervise the workers during their work hours. This is one of the most crucial parts of hiring a company. If the schedule is not planned and organized well, the time and money you spend will go wasted.

Environmentally Conscious

The effect of global warming has struck a chord with many people lately. One of the worst causes of this is due to industrial sites. The work being done on your house could contribute to this too if you are not careful. Thus, you’ll want to choose a company that is environmentally conscious with their materials and how they’re disposed of. If you find a company that explicitly states they’re environmentally conscious, you clearly don’t have to worry. If not, all you have to do is ask.

Useful Tips for Selling an Old iPhone

If you are one of those who always want to be up-to-date then you definitely want to get the new iPhone that has recently been launched. But what should you do if there is not enough money in your pocket? There is a great possibility to earn some spare cash – sell your old iPhone! There is no secret that iPhone company representatives say that there is no better way to sell your old iPhone then giving it back to the retailers, but experts in the market of electronics have some other options for you.

First of all remember that timing is the most important thing about selling your iPhone. According to the investigation of the phone prices in Canada the best time to sell your latest iPhone is just before the next one is launched. In this way you can get the best price for it and at the same time you will not have to spend much time without a phone at all. But be very careful with the definition of “right before the launch”, because according to the statistics the prices for older models go down for a predictable 15 to 20 percent value decline in the period of six-weeks before the next iPhone launch. As a rule, there is no exact date of launching but it usually happens around September, so you need to start looking for a buyer for your phone somewhere in June.

Where to sell an old iPhone?

Today there are more possibilities for selling an iPhone than any other type of smartphone. With no doubt first of all we are talking about the online stores like Nextworth, Kijiji, SellYourCell or Swappa. And if you are not satisfied with what you have seen there is also a possibility to go to a retailer store and exchange your iPhone for some cash there. Today there are also web-sites which actually aggregate several other web-sites and can give you an idea of some other possibilities of selling your device.

The prices that you can find at every of such possibilities listed above are very different. For example, for a 32GB white iPhone 5 with AT&T you can find a price of only $279 but it of course goes together with the AT&T contract. At the same time on some independent online web-sites you can find the price going up to $700.

As you can see from the numbers, more money you can usually get from independent online stores, but at this point everything will depend on how soon you want to get the money. If selling your old iPhone with some retailers you will have quick money, but the amount will be up to twice less than with other possibilities. This option is perfect if you need quick cash. If you can wait, then first of all check used iPhone price online, post your item on the Web and wait. In this way you will spend more time for selling your phone but you are likely to get more money for the waiting time.

A Unique Wig Shopping Experience

Shopping for a transgender friend of mine was both one of the more difficult tasks that I ever challenged myself with and the most simple – when I figured out exactly what to get them! It was such a logical thing that I can’t believe I hadn’t thought of it right off the bat. While my friend hasn’t totally switched genders, she is awfully close to becoming the woman she has always wanted to be. At first I was totally stuck trying to figure out what to get her until I saw Brazilian hair bundles for sale! Who knew there was such a thing or even such an industry?

I mean, I’ve seen wigs and the like.

Grow The Wisdom Through Finance News

Economics is a very interesting and a tough subject. Business and finance are two sides of a coin and both are interlinked. Economics plays a vital role in nation building. A country can prosper and emerge well only when the money inflow is steady. Stock markets play a big role in deciding the current trend of the economy. Inflation also plays a big role in deciding the country’s economy. There are various factors that are to be studied to understand Economics properly. When the stock market shows an upward trend then there is a presumption that the economy is steady and developing. On the contrary, if there is downward trend, then there is a presumption that the economy is slowing down.

Investing The Money Helps In Nation Building

Managing the money needs a very careful planning and analysis. Do not waste the hard earned money in lavish expenditures and materialistic desires. Investing the money properly will help in nation building. Without economics the country will come to stand still. Understanding economics needs patience and perseverance. Many small scale and large scale businesses have set foot prints in the market and achieve their target easily through careful analysis. Managing money is the need of the hour. Businesses will grow and survive only through diversification and modern methods. The business people should carefully watch the inflow and outflow of money and decide the course of action based on the output. All is well when the economy boosts, but when the economy tumbles then there are dangers on the cards. The money should be carefully handled and should be invested for a long time. There are two types of economics, one is micro economics and the other is macro economics. Economics also takes into account various statistics and illustrations. Only perfect statistics will reveal the financial status of the country. The funds should not be locked in one place and should be invested in many areas. Economics is very helpful to know the financial position of a country and the manner in which they are handled. The Developed countries will handle the finance properly compared to undeveloped countries. NEC’s forensic accounting degree holders can only able to provide the entire strategies to improve thoroughly everyone cannot understand economy and also finance that easily. Though economics is a difficult subject, it teaches many important things about the financial climate and governance of the country. Only few choose economics as their main subject since it is bit dry and boring.

On the Right Track for Us

I’ve been considering Charlotte marriage counseling for a couple of weeks now. My wife and I haven’t been getting along very well for the past couple of years and I am certain it’s because we’re changing rapidly as people. We both have started new jobs within the past five years while she finally completed her master’s degree. The changes that are happening within our lives currently are not leaving much room for the relationship any longer. I’m willing to go to counseling for it but I do feel that things have simply run their course and we should perhaps consider going our separate ways.

When Do You Start Potty Training

I was going to try to figure out what time is the best to begin potty training. I was going to check it out on the web now, but of course I am sure that you are going to get a lot of conflicting information. What I am reading tells me that I have a good deal of time before it really good to start. A child should apparently be 2 to 3 years old before it is physically and emotionally ready for the start of potty training. Of course you hear and read a lot about the psychology of the thing. You hear jokes all the time about people turning out to be poorly adjusted adults because of the way that their parents did it. Of course mostly that seems to revolve around the concept of how strict the parents are. I am not sure what they mean by that.

Nice Apartments with Lots of Amenities

I am looking for a new place to stay, and I want it to be somewhere fairly nice. I have been living at an apartment that I do not really like very much, and I have had to stay here for too long. I wish that I did not renew my lease, after my first year was up, because I did not like the place to begin with. However, I was convinced by my roommate, and it was a terrible decision to listen to him. Anyway, I am looking at this site, http://brookhighlandplace.com, that is for a apartment complex that is located fairly close to where I am currently living.

It would be helpful to move into a new place, that is not very far from where I am living at the present moment. That is because it would cut down on the stress that is associated with moving.

Mental Health: a Simple Explanation

What is mental health? Mental health is the positive wellness of the mind that includes emotional well being and the ability to enjoy life and cope with everyday demands. People who have mental health realize their own abilities and work productively coping with normal stresses of life that are in fact unavoidable and inevitable. This website is a great service for those in Charlotte who may be in need of counseling services, so please, visit a professional and do not simply take the advice of Fitflop skor this website alone. Mental Health is important to your well being. It helps express emotions positively in a normal way. If these emotions are not expressed it can lead to depression and abuse of drugs and alcohol and in the worst cases cause mental illnesses and disorders.

Mental health includes the ability to enjoy life.

Picking an Electric Company for My Business

One of the nice things about having a small business in Texas is that the electric companies in the area are not regulated. This means that multiple companies are able to come into the area and supply energy to the businesses in the area, as well as residential homes too. What I like about this is that we are able to plan for our finances for the year by locking in a rate on electricity. That’s one of of the reasons I went with reliant energy in mission for the electrical need for my business.

I liked that I could save money by locking in a lower cost per kilowatt hour in exchange for agreeing to a year long rate lock. this is excellent, as my business uses a lot of electricity, and anything that we can do to save money definitely benefits us in the long term.

How to Raise Money for Your Movie

dollars

While I’m a big believer in the no-budget film, there may come a time when you’ll need to raise money. You may be able to wrangle free gear and cast and crew for a short film, but once you decide to move into the feature realm, you’ll need deeper pockets. It’s unfair to people helping you out to continue to use them with no compensation. Plus, you may want some professional gear that you can only get from a rental house. After using a real dolly with solid steel track, I’m not sure I ever want to use anything else.The latest issue of Microfilmmaker is out, and they have an good article on raising money for a smaller budget movie. Reprinted from the book Digital Filmmaking 101, it covers most ways a low budget producer can get some coin. Some of the points are common sense (don’t use credit cards) while others are just plain silly (found money). It is still worth reading, and you may discover an avenue you had not considered before to get your production off of the ground.

One method outlined is grant money, which is “free” cash to fund your project. The trick is finding the grant that supports your type of film, then sticking religiously to the application requirements. Here is a good starting point for information on this type of fundraising.

If you are considering moving into six-figure budgets, give a listen to the recent “This Conference is Being Recorded” on Lance Weiler’s Workbook Project. In this episode Lance interviews fundraising specialist Stu Pollard. Stu gives the lowdown on getting the dough and all the legal crap that goes with it. I think I’ll stick with the low end, thank you very much.

He also points out an interesting concept that Civilian Pictures is trying. They allow investors to buy shares in various film projects. The bigger the budget needed, the more cost per share. While it’s obvious how to become an investor, I’m not sure how to submit a film yet, but it bears investigating.

Whatever method you use, take Stu’s advice and make sure your money (no matter how much) is in place before you start shooting. There’s nothing worse than having to shut down your movie because the well has gone dry.

Check your beliefs about money! If you feel money is bad, and we should not use money as a form of energy exchange ~ then you will block money from coming into your life. 
 
Money has been part of the program for Earth for a very long time, and it will not be going away anytime soon. Yes, I do believe we will eventually do away with money ~ as we know it ~ however, there will always be some form of “energy exchange”. That is the way the universe works! Everything is energy, and nothing is for FREE ~ as it requires energy to create everything so anything you get that you perceive as FREE, actually required someone a lot of time and energy to create…..consider it as a gift of “their” energy ~ and be grateful!
 
In addition, all jobs are spiritual. EVERY job serves the evolution of this planet. Depending on where the focus of your vibration is ~ will determine the level of spiritual energy you are able to infuse into your job position. If you are a waiter in a restaurant ~ you have just as much spiritual potential to affect the people you interact with as a spiritual teacher or author. Approach your job with gratitude and a positive vibration, and INSPIRE those around you to do the same. If you exude dread, irritation, stress and unhappiness at your job ~ you need to get a new job! Find something that is more aligned with your soul ~ you have been given the power, and the free will choice to make decisions for your self that are for your highest good. What is good for YOU ~ is good for everyone else.
 
Regardless of where you choose to work ~ every job that requires your energy, time and physical efforts DESERVES to be energetically balanced by “payment through money.” Money is a form of energy ~ Everything Is Energy ~ it is time to stop separating energy, and view everything as ONE….. seek balance not imbalance!
 
If you work and earn money or use money in any way ~ then it is inappropriate and disrespectful to tell someone else who works for their money that they don’t deserve to get paid. This happens in the spiritual community all the time. People who have distorted beliefs, have taken poverty vows in another lifetime, are in judgment or are in “lack and poverty” consciousness ~ for some reason ~ feel ministers, healers, spiritual authors and teachers should work for free. This belief is a form of energetic vampirism ~ as people want to “take energy” without giving anything in return.
 
Check your beliefs! Your beliefs will create your reality….and be careful you don’t project your distorted beliefs onto others. The energy you put out always returns to you so if you are passing judgment on the way other people choose to make their money ~ you are only limiting your SELF. 
 
Live “spiritually abundant” ~ no more limitations on your self or anyone else! ~ Sabrina

How to Raise Money

OneDollarBills640

Money. You need it. And it’s a tough thing to come by if you’re starting or running a musical group- be it a band, a choir or a taiko troupe.

If you’re running/starting a group, there’s only so much personal money you can front. The group itself needs to form a source of income if it plans to stick around. Here’s a couple tips for anyone who’s planning to, or recently started to run a musical troupe.

1. Establish credibility

At some point, you’re going to need to ask people for money. But they won’t give you much if you haven’t proven who you are or what your group is capable of. So the first thing to do is to define your group.

Who are you, what do you do, what are your goals and what makes your group different from others. Type it up and make a document. Make a website or facebook page. Find friends to support you on the sites/pages.

If you have a way of obtaining the instruments for minimal cost, do so and take pictures of you with them. Get these on your sites/pages, and add pics to your document.

Even if at this point, you have zero skills in the music, the fact you have something solid to present makes a world of difference.

2. Be prepared to front some cash

In the beginning, members may have to chip in some personal money. There just needs to be something to start with, even to do some fundraisers. Fortunately, if your fundraisers are effective, the money will come right back.

Try bake sales. No joke. Doesn’t matter if you’re a death metal band. People pay for cookies. If cookies aren’t for you, brainstorm with your group and get creative. Sell t-shirts, offer to do chores, wash cars- or anything that may be unique to your group.

Do these fundraisers where people gather- like community centers, parks, and college campuses (make sure you get permission). This in itself will help sell your name. With this initial cash, invest in more fundraisers, and also try to get the minimal numbers of instruments you need to function as a group.

3. Ask Ask Ask

Everyone feels a little shame when asking someone for money. But if you ask right, this can be the best way to get financial support.

If you’re a taiko troupe, for example, find Japanese associations and clubs, or groups/organizations that work to promote arts and culture. If you’re associated with a university, try asking the different departments (musical, Japanese, arts, etc.). If you know individuals interested in your art/music, ask them too. They know the pain of starting things up, and will be willing to listen.

Present your aforementioned document to them and really tell them what you’re about and what you’re trying to do. And this next part is key. Tell them what you can do for them. If they can benefit in even in the smallest way by giving you a donation, they’ll be far more generous.

Assure them that by supporting you, their name/organization will be well promoted. Tell them you’ll do a free show for them. Put their names down on your ‘supporters’ column of your website. Link to their sites. Anything you can offer. By showing your gratitude to them by telling the world that they’re great supporters, they’ll be happy about their choice to fund you.

A very important thing is to ask lots of people. Ask ask ask. And be courteous and polite about it. Once you get in the asking rhythm you’ll find it surprisingly easy (and even fun).

Finally, even after you receive donations, be sure to update your donors with your progress on a regular basis.

4. Free shows

Free shows are important because no one pays at first to see a band/group they know nothing about. Get your art out to the people and don’t worry about the cash.

Do have a donation box though, and let them know that their help is very much appreciated.

And communicate with the people who see your shows. Connecting with individuals will get them to be greater fans of your troupe. In fact, this is how you start getting offers. People who see you, people who you talk to at the shows are often the ones who hire you for future shows.

5. Workshops/Membership fees

Once your name is out there and you’ve got some instruments, people may want to participate. Especially when it comes to taiko drums.

Open some workshops, and do them for a small fee. If you’re workshops are popular and you can do them regularly, this’ll be a steady source of income.

You could also have membership fees for people wanting to join. There are always maintenance costs and members should understand that their fees are being put to good use.

6. Sell tickets

Finally, if you’ve gone through all the trouble of the first five steps, you’re surely established enough to sell some tickets.

Find a cheap venue and advertise as much as possible. Advertisements can be cheap leaflets that you can make by the thousands at Kinko’s. Pass them out at popular places and spread your show through word of mouth.

Tickets shouldn’t be expensive. It’s better to sell out with cheap tickets, then have a half-full hall with pricey ones. Tell your friends, family, supporters, donors, everyone. If you really get everyone to spread the word and advertise, selling out your tickets is not nearly as hard as you think.

These are all just a couple ideas, but some, if not all, can really work for you. If you and your members are enthusiastic about it, raising money can not only be very successful ($$$!) but it can also be a whole lot of fun. Good luck!

People who have distorted beliefs, have taken poverty vows in another lifetime, are in judgment or are in “lack and poverty” consciousness ~ for some reason ~ feel ministers, healers, spiritual authors and teachers should work for free. This belief is a form of energetic vampirism ~ as people want to “take energy” without giving anything in return.
 
Check your beliefs! Your beliefs will create your reality….and be careful you don’t project your distorted beliefs onto others. The energy you put out always returns to you so if you are passing judgment on the way other people choose to make their money ~ you are only limiting your SELF. 
 
Live “spiritually abundant” ~ no more limitations on your self or anyone else! ~ Sabrina

How to Raise Money

rrrr
Money. You need it. And it’s a tough thing to come by if you’re starting or running a musical group- be it a band, a choir or a taiko troupe.

If you’re running/starting a group, there’s only so much personal money you can front. The group itself needs to form a source of income if it plans to stick around. Here’s a couple tips for anyone who’s planning to, or recently started to run a musical troupe.

1. Establish credibility

At some point, you’re going to need to ask people for money. But they won’t give you much if you haven’t proven who you are or what your group is capable of. So the first thing to do is to define your group.

Who are you, what do you do, what are your goals and what makes your group different from others. Type it up and make a document. Make a website or facebook page. Find friends to support you on the sites/pages.

If you have a way of obtaining the instruments for minimal cost, do so and take pictures of you with them. Get these on your sites/pages, and add pics to your document.

Even if at this point, you have zero skills in the music, the fact you have something solid to present makes a world of difference.

2. Be prepared to front some cash

In the beginning, members may have to chip in some personal money. There just needs to be something to start with, even to do some fundraisers. Fortunately, if your fundraisers are effective, the money will come right back.

Try bake sales. No joke. Doesn’t matter if you’re a death metal band. People pay for cookies. If cookies aren’t for you, brainstorm with your group and get creative. Sell t-shirts, offer to do chores, wash cars- or anything that may be unique to your group.

Do these fundraisers where people gather- like community centers, parks, and college campuses (make sure you get permission). This in itself will help sell your name. With this initial cash, invest in more fundraisers, and also try to get the minimal numbers of instruments you need to function as a group.

3. Ask Ask Ask

Everyone feels a little shame when asking someone for money. But if you ask right, this can be the best way to get financial support.

If you’re a taiko troupe, for example, find Japanese associations and clubs, or groups/organizations that work to promote arts and culture. If you’re associated with a university, try asking the different departments (musical, Japanese, arts, etc.). If you know individuals interested in your art/music, ask them too. They know the pain of starting things up, and will be willing to listen.

Present your aforementioned document to them and really tell them what you’re about and what you’re trying to do. And this next part is key. Tell them what you can do for them. If they can benefit in even in the smallest way by giving you a donation, they’ll be far more generous.

Assure them that by supporting you, their name/organization will be well promoted. Tell them you’ll do a free show for them. Put their names down on your ‘supporters’ column of your website. Link to their sites. Anything you can offer. By showing your gratitude to them by telling the world that they’re great supporters, they’ll be happy about their choice to fund you.

A very important thing is to ask lots of people. Ask ask ask. And be courteous and polite about it. Once you get in the asking rhythm you’ll find it surprisingly easy (and even fun).

Finally, even after you receive donations, be sure to update your donors with your progress on a regular basis.

4. Free shows

Free shows are important because no one pays at first to see a band/group they know nothing about. Get your art out to the people and don’t worry about the cash.

Do have a donation box though, and let them know that their help is very much appreciated.

And communicate with the people who see your shows. Connecting with individuals will get them to be greater fans of your troupe. In fact, this is how you start getting offers. People who see you, people who you talk to at the shows are often the ones who hire you for future shows.

5. Workshops/Membership fees

Once your name is out there and you’ve got some instruments, people may want to participate. Especially when it comes to taiko drums.

Open some workshops, and do them for a small fee. If you’re workshops are popular and you can do them regularly, this’ll be a steady source of income.

You could also have membership fees for people wanting to join. There are always maintenance costs and members should understand that their fees are being put to good use.

6. Sell tickets

Finally, if you’ve gone through all the trouble of the first five steps, you’re surely established enough to sell some tickets.

Find a cheap venue and advertise as much as possible. Advertisements can be cheap leaflets that you can make by the thousands at Kinko’s. Pass them out at popular places and spread your show through word of mouth.

Tickets shouldn’t be expensive. It’s better to sell out with cheap tickets, then have a half-full hall with pricey ones. Tell your friends, family, supporters, donors, everyone. If you really get everyone to spread the word and advertise, selling out your tickets is not nearly as hard as you think.

These are all just a couple ideas, but some, if not all, can really work for you. If you and your members are enthusiastic about it, raising money can not only be very successful ($$$!) but it can also be a whole lot of fun. Good luck!

Greenspan has traditionally OR Positive

If you look at the record Greenspan before he was elected chairman of the Federal Reserve said many positive things about Ever. Since his retirement from the presidency to, said hes good things about his or often, for example, at a Council of Foreign Relations to week. History is to search for gold cheap, oh throughout the 20 years he was ever to chair the Federal Reserve, it was a good thing to say Ever. I think it says more about the limitations of the central bank; in the words rush, can not say to Truth or what they really think, because it would impact on the market to be too large banks. I think Greenspan is saying things today that back 40 years ago to say, oh by arguably WHEN elected chairman of the US Federal Reserve.

January 30, 2015 – Beware of illusion Money coming destruction of your wealth, currency wars, Jim Rickards blog No comments
Avoid the illusion of money coming to destroy your wealth

Sounds A money illusion as complying Juggler, using $ 100 million of which is shown by empty moments before his hat. Indeed, the concept of money illusion long day on the economy, the huge importance for you if you are on screen, investors and entrepreneurs.

Money illusion is a trick, oh it’s not on stage. The trick by banks, which distort the economy and destroy your wealth is.

that people prefer a salary increase over a pay cut and ignoring inflation is the essence of money illusion.

The money illusion individuals tend to confuse and nominal prices Fig. It boils down to is ignored inflation people decide they are better off. Examples are everywhere.

Please you are building engineer for property management, which is $ 100,000 per year. You will receive a 2% increase, so now you make $ 102,000 per year. Would to most people say they are better off following the increase ice. Oh if inflation is 3%, to $ 102,000 to pay even $ 98.940 in purchasing power compared to the initial point on.

You have $ 2,000 increase in nominal terms, oh you suffered a $ 1,060 pay cut in real terms. Would to most people say that you have really bad Better because of the increase, oh you as you lost purchasing power. The difference between reality and his attitude to money illusion.

Not to money illusion effects Limited for wages and prices. It can apply to any cash flows including dividends and interest. It can be applied to the prices of stocks and bonds assets. Everyone must adjust the nominal increase in order to see beyond the illusion of money for inflation.

Not to the concept of money illusion as an object of study and the new economic policy. Irving Fisher, one of the most famous economists of the 20th century, he wrote a book called The Money Illusion in 1928. At thinking money illusion going until Richard CantillonsEssay attributed to economic theory by 1730 while USAID did Cantillon Exact Phrase ,

After economists argue that there is no money illusion. Instead, they say, you make decisions based on rational expectations. This means that once you perceive inflation, or hoping that in the future you will have to value your money and invest or spend a discount on the expected intrinsic value.

Indeed, Cain is hidden inflation of assets transferred from savers to borrowers

How much of modern economics, this attitude to work Better than swelling around real world into the classroom. Experiments show behavioral scientists think people that pay 2% without changing the level of unfair prices. Between us to both, they think that there is an increase of 2% 4% inflation Fair.

In fact, to their results in terms of purchasing power equal economically. However, the fact is to overcome inflation that people prefer a salary increase over pay cut to the heart of money illusion.

Goes to the importance of money illusion far beyond science and social science experiments. Central bankers USAID money illusion wealth from savers and investors You borrowers. WHEN you do this is to FAS economy isnt because theres too much fiat. Central bankers try to USAID inflation to reduce the real value of the debt to the debtor in the hope that they could spend more and help the economy moving again to give some relief.

Of course, comes to this type of relief at the expense of savers and investors to identify how to value the assets fall. Also, a simple example makes the point.

Send a $ 250,000 home purchase loans in 2007 $ 50,000 down payment and a $ 200,000 mortgage with a low teaser rate. Today there are to a house worth $ 190,000 reduction of 24% in value, oh FOS is $ 200,000 mortgage to because according to the teaser rate is Available for reimbursement.

Well homeowners underwater, the value of thi worth less than their mortgage to IOC and hes hes spending slashed its response. In this case, it is assumed that an individual rush, on screen. Without mortgage and $ 100,000 in the bank, receives no interest among UIS Feds zero rate policy

Send politician came to DTI Regular hand confiscated $ 15,000 from the schooner for a debtor to repay a mortgage proposed. Now the screen is only $ 85,000 in the bank, oh debtor is home to a $ 190,000 $ 185,000 mortgage, which led to the debtor at home on the water and gave him a brighter outlook.

The defense is bad and the debtor is Better for. Respectively due to his transfer $ 15,000 Americans would include Drag be grossly unfair to this type of seizure, and the politicians have run out of town by rail.

Now suppose the same tale to, oh this one to the Federal Reserve on inflation Engineers 3% for five years, for a total of 15% inflation. Bank is protected to $ 100,000 in, oh and even $ 85,000 purchasing power due to inflation.

Greenspan Has Traditional Been Gold Positive

Beware the Money Illusion Coming to Destroy Your Wealth

77766471dd0e68508d1e97fb1674140ad59de924

A money illusion sounds like something a prestidigitator performs by pulling $100 bills from a hat shown to be empty moments before. In fact, money illusion is a longstanding concept in economics that has enormous significance for you if you�re a saver, investor or entrepreneur.

Money illusion is a trick, but it is not one performed on stage. It is a ruse performed by central banks that can distort the economy and destroy your wealth.

�that people prefer a raise over a pay cut while ignoring inflation is the essence of money illusion.

The money illusion is a tendency of individuals to confuse real and nominal prices. It boils down to the fact that people ignore inflation when deciding if they are better off. Examples are everywhere.

Assume you are a building engineer working for a property management company making $100,000 per year. You get a 2% raise, so now you are making $102,000 per year. Most people would say they are better off after the raise. But if inflation is 3%, the $102,000 salary is worth only $98,940 in purchasing power relative to where you started.

You got a $2,000 raise in nominal terms but you suffered a $1,060 pay cut in real terms. Most people would say you�re better off because of the raise, but you�re actually worse off because you�ve lost purchasing power. The difference between your perception and reality is money illusion.

The impact of money illusion is not limited to wages and prices. It can apply to any cash flow including dividends and interest. It can apply to the asset prices of stocks and bonds. Any nominal increase has to be adjusted for inflation in order to see past the money illusion.

The concept of money illusion as a subject of economic study and policy is not new. Irving Fisher, one of the most famous economists of the 20th century, wrote a book called The Money Illusion in 1928. The idea of money illusion can be traced back to Richard Cantillon�sEssay on Economic Theory of 1730, although Cantillon did not use that exact phrase.

Economists argue that money illusion does not exist. Instead, they say, you make decisions based upon �rational expectations.� That means once you perceive inflation or expect it in future, you will discount the value of your money and invest or spend it according to its expected intrinsic value.

In effect, inflation is a hidden tax used to transfer wealth from savers to debtors�

Like much of modern economics, this view works better in the classroom than in the real world. Experiments by behaviorists show that people think a 2% cut in wages with no change in the price level is �unfair.� Meanwhile, they think a 2% raise with 4% inflation is �fair.�

In fact, the two outcomes are economically identical in terms of purchasing power. The fact, however, that people prefer a raise over a pay cut while ignoring inflation is the essence of money illusion.

The importance of money illusion goes far beyond academics and social science experiments. Central bankers use money illusion to transfer wealth from you � a saver and investor � to debtors. They do this when the economy isn�t growing because there�s too much debt. Central bankers try to use inflation to reduce the real value of the debt to give debtors some relief in the hope that they might spend more and help the economy get moving again.

Of course, this form of relief comes at the expense of savers and investors like you who see the value of your assets decline. Again a simple example makes the point.

Assume a debtor bought a $250,000 home in 2007 with a $50,000 down payment and a $200,000 mortgage with a low teaser rate. Today, the home is worth $190,000, a 24% decline in value, but the mortgage is still $200,000 because the teaser rate did not provide for amortization.

This homeowner is �underwater� � the value of his home is worth less than the mortgage he�s paying � and he�s slashed his spending in response. In this scenario, assume there is another individual, a saver, with no mortgage and $100,000 in the bank who receives no interest under the Fed�s zero interest rate policy.

Suppose a politician came along who proposed that the government confiscate $15,000 from the saver to be handed to the debtor to pay down his mortgage. Now the saver has only $85,000 in the bank, but the debtor has a $190,000 house with a $185,000 mortgage, bringing the debtor�s home above water and a giving him a brighter outlook.

The saver is worse off and the debtor is better off, each because of the $15,000 transfer payment. Americans would consider this kind of confiscation to be grossly unfair, and the politician would be run out of town on a rail.

Now assume the same scenario, except this time, the Federal Reserve engineers 3% inflation for five years, for a total of 15% inflation. The saver still has $100,000 in the bank, but it is worth only $85,000 in purchasing power due to inflation.

 

Jim Rickards – The Fed Will Start QE4 In 2015

The Fed Basically Still Uses LTCM�s Financial Models

The models that LTCM was using the 1990�s were the same models that Wall Street was still using in the early 2000�s and, for that matter, the same models being used today. They are called �dynamic stochastic general equilibrium models� and also risk management models like �value at risk� or VaR models. They were the ones that we used in the 90�s and have continued to use for the last 16 years. They�re still being used now. They do not correspond with how markets actually work or to actual human behavior. They have failed in the past and they will fail again. If you have the wrong model, you will get the wrong policy and you will be negatively surprised by results every single time.

According to Greenspan, the Fed expanded its balance sheet not to boost the economy or to keep inflation moving higher. It was because the Federal government had such large expenditures that it would have �crowded out� private borrowers if the Fed had not increased the size of its balance sheet. Do you think that�s true? Is the Fed directing the economy? Or just reacting to the capital demands of the US government?

I think both things are true. I think Greenspan is right that we are seeing monetization of debt. This is what Frederick Mishkin, the former member of the Federal Reserve board of governors refers to as �fiscal dominance.� Yes, I think Greenspan is right about that but it�s also true that they�re trying to fulfill the dual mandate of price stability and creating jobs. As between the two, the Fed is willing to tolerate higher inflation if they can create more jobs. They don�t talk about �fiscal dominance� and they don�t explicitly say they�re monetizing the debt. In fact they deny that they�re monetizing the debts.

Greenspan�s right. When the credit demands of the Federal government are that great, you either have to accommodate the demands or somebody is going to be crowded out. I think that the result would be deflationary. Governments cannot tolerate deflation. So rather than choose between stimulus from monetary ease and monetization of debt, I think that they are doing both.

Financial War and Currency Wars Are Very Different

I have discussed financial war, which is different from currency war. Currency war is an economic policy countries use to fight deflation and encourage inflation by cheapening the currency and creating inflation in the form of higher import prices. It�s a way of creating monetary easing. It�s an age-old economic policy, used most famously in the late 1920�s and 1930�s in what became known as �beggar they neighbor.� Countries were stealing growth from each other by debasing their currencies, trying to import inflation and improve their trade balances by causing cheaper exports to foreign buyers and more expensive imports for domestic buyers. That combination was seen to bolster growth.

Financial war is different. Financial war involves countries that are traditional rivals or even enemies, for instance the US, Russia, and China, with competing interests everywhere from Eastern Europe to the South China Sea. Countries have fought wars in the past using traditional kinetic methods � armies, navies, air forces, missiles, submarines and so forth. We now live in an age where, thinking about warfare, you have to look at asymmetric forms of warfare � not just traditional forms � like chemical, biological, radiological weapons, guerilla warfare, terrorism, and financial warfare. So the scenario I was discussing that involves China buying gold and selling the dollar was not a currency war; it was a financial war. There you are trying to destroy the economy of your opponent, which is a very different situation.

The Goal of Currency Wars is Inflation

I expect a collapse in the value of currencies relative to real goods, real assets and real services. This will happen to all currencies, not just the dollar. I don�t expect a word where people lose confidence in the dollar and the euro does really well. On a relative basis, I�ve been bullish on the euro for some time. In the endgame, however, if people lose confidence in the dollar this will be inflationary in all countries around the word and I don�t think that any currency will be able to withstand it. When I say �the death of money� what I really mean is the loss of confidence in the purchasing power of money. That�s very likely to be a global phenomenon not confined to any particular country.

Currency wars are part of the picture because the way you fight a currency war is by cheapening the currency, cutting rates and quantitative easing. We saw that recently with the announcement of more quantitative easing from Japan, which took the markets by surprise and caused the Japanese Yen to fall by over 2 percent in a single morning. That is a huge move in the currency markets.

Another big factor in currency wars is the question of paying sovereign debts. It�s the sovereign deficits that are really the problem and the question is how to deal with them. One way to deal with them is through inflation, which, of course, is the goal in a currency war. The problem is that not everybody can devalue against everybody else all at once. You have to take turns. So it goes back and forth and back and forth. That�s what happened in the 1920�s and 1930�s and it�s happening again today.

Catastrophic Outcomes May Come Faster Than Expected

Jim Rickards – Oil Shocks And The Global Economy

Jim Rickards on Oil Shocks And The Global Economy.

Why Lower Gas Prices Are NOT �Bullish Indicators�

I don�t think the data is bullish at all.Lower gas prices put more money in consumers� pockets.

But there�s an alternative to spending� Which is saving or reducing debt � which is the same thing.

I don�t consider these bullish indicators. They tell me an economy is running out of steam.

An economy is nothing more than two things: How many people are working and how productive are they?

Labor force participation is going down � which means fewer people are working. And productivity is also going down. Real wages are stagnant. 50 million people are on food stamps. 7 million people have part-time jobs who wish they had full-time jobs.

These data points are not bullish indicators.

We�re in a global depression.

There�s a slow down in Japan, China, Europe and the U.S. � the whole world is in a global depression.

There�s enough fights to go around, but in a fight between the ECB (European Central Bank) and Germany, Germany wins.

The ECB is only doing $2.5 billion worth of asset buying, while the FED has been doing almost $1 trillion a year. So the ECB is going through the motions but they�re not doing anything like QE. They�re not buying soveirgn debt. They�re buying some asset-backed securities, but there aren�t even enough of those to have much of an impact.

The ECB�s Mario Draghi is the best Central Banker in the world. He understands that Central Banks are essentially impotent.

When you�re impotent you have to talk a good game � so Draghi says little and does less.

The U.S. FED is the opposite. They don�t understand how impotent they.

China is the biggest credit bubble in the world.

The U.S. has created a bubble in housing and stocks with easy money, but there�s no bigger bubble in the world than China. They have a greater capacity to keep it going because their investors have fewer alternatives.

CIA Expert Warns Of A Disaster That Would Make The Great Depression Seem Harmless

The Misery Index combines the true inflation rate with the true unemployment rate.
Why don�t you hear about this in the mainstream news? It is because the Federal Reserve has repeatedly changed how the Misery Index is calculated.
Rickards believes that the way the Misery Index is being calculated is being used to hide the true state of the economy.
He said:
�Today you rarely hear the government talk about the Misery Index with the public. The reason is they may not want you to know the truth. And the truth is, the Misery Index has reached more dangerous levels than we saw prior to the Great Depression. This is a signal of a complex system that�s about to collapse.�
Rickards specifically pinpointed how he thought the crash will come about:
�I expect the first phase will appear as a nearly instantaneous 70% stock market crash. From the outside, nobody will see it coming. Once it becomes clear that it�s not a flash crash � it�s a systemic meltdown in the economy itself, that�s when the gravity of the situation will sink in. And there will be no digging out from it. $100 trillion is a conservative estimate for the damage. A lot can happen over 25-years as our country struggles to recover from this.�
There you have it. A CIA economic expert reveals how he thinks a 25 year depression is about to hit America. Jim Rickards can�t be dismissed as a crackpot. So what do you think will happen to the country�s economic situation over the next 25 years?

The World is in a Depression and There is No Getting Out

We are in a depression. This is a global depression. It started in 2007 and it is going to continue indefinitely. Depressions are structural, monetary solutions are cyclical: you cannot solve a structural problem with a cyclical remedy – monetary policy will not work. What it could do eventually is cause inflation. So far people say: �Where is the inflation?We printed trillions of dollars, there is no inflation�. That is because we would have had deflation, extreme deflation, but for the money printing. It did produce inflation to the extent that it offset the deflation� The world is in depression, we are not getting out of it.

Chinese Growth is Set to Slowdown Further

I have been going for Chinese growth to get to 3 or 4%. I would say that China`s growth is already at 4%. I know they print 7.5%. But about half of the GDP they produce is wasted. So if I build a $5 billion train station in a small town that is $5 billion of GDP- this money is completely wasted because 10 people getting on the train are not going to pay for a $5 billion station. So you go around China with these ghost cities we have talked about before… So it is generating GDP, but it is completely wasted. If you adjusted the published GDP figures for the amount of waste, their actual growth is probably already roughly 4%. That is going to go lower.

The Currency War Goes On

I think this is one long �currency war�. We are now getting into more of a battle, more of a confrontation. The US dollar is the only strong currency that cannot last: the US cannot have a strong currency, because we are desperate for inflation. We have done all thequantitative easing, we have raised the zero, we have issued further guidance, we have done a twist, and we have done three versions of QE. We have done everything possible. The only thing left is to try to cheapen the currency and in fact the dollar is getting stronger. The Fed might not have minded a stronger dollar. Six months ago it did look like the economy was getting stronger. We saw strong second quarter GDP. So it was a little bit of a good day. And Europe was desperate for the help: they were stepping into recession. Japan`s economy collapsed in the second quarter. So you could see the feds saying �okwe will have a stronger dollar and give Europe and Japan a break�. But that is over. Now the US is becoming a loser and we are the ones who need to take a break. The only way to get it is a cheaper dollar. I would look for that in the months ahead.

Four Horsemen of the Dollar Apocalypse Jim Rickards

Catastrophic Outcomes May Come Faster Than Expected

James Rickards, author of the new best-selling book called “The Death of Money,” says the financial collapse will happen, but he is not sure of when it will come.
Rickards explains, “It is the thing you won’t see coming that will take the system down.
Things happen much more quickly than what investors expect.”
Rickards adds, “What will happen in gold is that it will chug along and then all of a sudden–boom.
It will be up a $100 an ounce, and then the next day it will be up another $200 an ounce.

Even as the unemployment rate drops, foreclosures dwindle, and the economy slowly recovers from the Great Recession, financial insecurity is on the rise in American urban areas according to a study conducted by the Corporation for Enterprise Development. Nearly half of all households in major cities don�t have enough money saved to cover essential expenses in an emergency. Erin weighs in.
