What happens when you spend a lot of money but don’t buy the gold you need?
You’re stuck with the excess—or you’re a victim of the Gold Rush, the term coined by writer John Updike in his book The Great Gatsby.
For example, I used to spend $1,000 a year on the silver in the United States, then $4,000 on gold.
Now I’m saving that $1.8 million by buying a couple hundred dollars worth of gold in my jewelry shop.
In a sense, it’s a reverse gold rush.
In the 1920s, Americans were purchasing gold and silver for the first time in their lives.
But by the time the Gold Wars began in 1929, they were spending way more on gold and gold bullion than the Federal Reserve had ever collected.
That meant that the Federal Government had been able to hoard a ton of bullion, and the Federal government was running out of other ways to spend it.
The Federal Reserve, by contrast, was buying gold and buying tons of silver for its own account, a strategy known as gold hedging.
If a Fed-created gold price crashed, the government would buy some of its gold in a bid to cover the difference, which meant that people would have to spend more to cover their purchases.
If the gold price fell, they’d have to pay for the difference with more gold.
The gold price was a crucial piece of the puzzle.
The Fed could buy gold at any time, at any rate, and it would always be cheaper than silver, making the government’s ability to buy gold even more valuable than the gold it bought.
The government had no problem printing money and buying gold, and if the gold and the silver prices crashed, that meant the Fed would need to print more money.
It would have no choice but to do so to keep the money supply growing and stimulate the economy.
In this way, the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) could buy the Federal reserve’s gold reserves and lend it to the Treasury.
The idea was that the FOMC would lend out gold to the Federal Treasury, and then the Fed could take gold from the FED and sell it to people.
It was a way for the Feds to buy up gold and buy up silver.
As long as the FOC was willing to lend out more gold and more silver, it was a great system.
But as the Fed started to print money, the demand for the government to print gold started to outstrip the supply of gold and, thus, the price of gold.
Gold prices went down, silver prices went up.
Inflation skyrocketed, the economy contracted, and many people were unable to afford their own gold or silver.
When the Gold War broke out in 1929—and the Fed was already running short of money—it became clear that the Fed had run out of gold, too.
The FOMT (Federal Open Market Fund) was the Fed’s central bank.
The funds of the FOG (Federal Investment Corporation) were used to buy government bonds.
These bonds were the primary means of buying government bonds, and in this way the FOP was the FAD (Federal Advisory Committee).
The FOP would decide what to do with the FOD funds.
The federal government would be left with the debt, and with the interest payments on the debt.
If, for example, the FOB wanted to buy the government bonds of a country that was facing a financial crisis, the federal government could lend the FO money to that country to purchase the bonds.
That would be the equivalent of buying the debt of the country in question.
The interest payments would be repaid by the FOW (Federal Reserve), the government could then borrow more money from the Federal Fund, and so on.
And so on and so forth.
In theory, this worked well for decades.
But the gold rush turned out to be a bust.
As the gold prices crashed and the government ran out of money, interest payments began to rise and the FOST (Federal Overseas Trust Fund) went belly up.
The Treasury was unable to pay its debts, so the FOS (Federal Operations and Loan) was also unable to borrow money.
In response, the Fed bought up all of the government debt, the dollar, and a variety of other things that had been issued by the government.
And then it sold the government-issued bonds, the interest-free securities.
This process was called a mortgage.
The bondholders received the government money in full and the Treasury received the money in the form of a “bond.”
That meant they could sell the bonds at the market rate and get paid in full.
The real difference between selling the debt and buying the bond was that once the bondholders had sold their bond, the debt could no longer be sold.
So the bond holders got to keep all of their money, and they also got to sell their bond when the
