Good As Gold

Long before Woodrow Wilson signed our banking system away to the Federal Reserve, and Ronald Raegan doomed the US dollar by removing the gold standard, coins and currency were precious metals, or tools of the trade, like livestock.

There is an interesting parallel between those at the lowest level of trade, who bartered for tools and other useful instruments, and those at the top, who’s most valuable commodity is time. 

It seems that the middle group of people have traded both their time and their useful tools for precious metals. 

The reality is that we are constantly trading our time. 

What do you want to buy with yours?

That’s all for today.

Until tomorrow,
