National Suicide: How Washington is Destroying the American Dream
December 29, 2009
Hosted by Jay Taylor
Since Nixon took us off the international gold standard in 1971, spending by the U.S. government as well as individuals and corporations has run amok. Martin Gross, author of “National Suicide” reports that government is not only spending trillions of dollars it doesn’t have and thus sentencing our children to a life of poverty, but its programs are in many instances downright fraudulent. Even those programs that may not be riddled with fraud and abuse have had many negative unintended consequences. For example, even though the government has spent several trillion dollars for welfare since 2000, the number of people below the poverty line has risen above the 37 million Americans since then. Foreign policies relating to China and immigration are also destroying our living standards. The national government spending scam is resulting in the rich getting richer at the expense of the middle class. What can be done to stop this horrible trend? Author Martin Gross will explain.

Jay Taylor has been able to more than double his newsletter’s model portfolio from 2000 to the present even as the S&P 500 was in the process of losing 50% of its value!
The insights provided to Jay came from a history professor in 1967 who advised Jay that when countries go off a gold or silver standard, hard economic times are sure to follow because nations begin to think they do not need to work hard and save to enjoy a better life. Indeed there is no free lunch and a gold standard reminds people of that every day.
Jay watched his professor’s prophetic words come true when in 1971, President Nixon completely detached the dollar from gold. Not surprising to Jay, the price of gold skyrocketed in the late 1970s as inflation wiped out vast amounts of wealth from average Americans. To protect his own wealth Jay began to invest in gold and gold mining shares and in 1981 he began sharing his success and insights in his newsletter. In 1981 Jay began writing a subscription newsletter that has earned his subscribers countless thousands of dollars over the years.
Jay’s insights as to the real cause of our problems has enabled him to find investment strategies that work. Diagnose a problem correctly and you have a chance for success. Diagnose a problem incorrectly as the establishment does and you are sure to fail.
