The GOLD Standard for Investing

Are you concerned about the unprecedented growth rate of the US Stock market which has driven stock prices to unsustainable heights? Worried about when the next recession will be? Are your retirement years just around the corner and you’re looking for a place to invest your hard earned money?

 

Before I tell you about the benefits of investing in Gold, let’s first take a look at what the critics are saying. All the opponents of Gold seem to focus on two things.

1.Gold has no intrinsic value.

2.It’s value only goes up when people are scared.

 

If you bought an ounce of Gold back in 1995 you would have spent $387. To buy that same ounce today you would have to spend $1,185. That’s a 20 year track record of growth. Try putting a 20 year track record on most mutual funds or stocks. You can’t because most stocks weren’t even around 20 years ago. Gold has been used for thousands of years as currency, and will continue to be used as currency for thousands more. If that’s not intrinsic value, I don’t know what is.

 

Now let’s look at some of the reasons why you should consider Gold as a powerful investment vehicle.

 

1.Safeguard your wealth during times of economic uncertainty or unrest.

Having a little fear of the future is healthy. What has a more steady track record, Gold or government?

 

2.World wide debt

Gold has long been used as a hedge against inflation. Inflation is caused when there is a a decrease in the perceived “value” of money. When a government goes into debt and begins to increase the production of paper money, eventually the people who accept that paper as currency begin to devalue that money because they start to doubt the government to be able to pay back that money. The worldwide debt load is now approaching 200 trillion dollars by some estimates.

 

3.Banks are Stockpiling Gold

According to the World Gold Council, central banks have increased their stockpile of Gold by 28% over the last year. If they see the value in Gold to protect their assets, why shouldn’t you do the same.

Nathaniel Ru and Sweetgreen

Nathaniel Ru, a Georgetown University graduate, brought his vision to “bring people together as a community around food” to life with his chain restaurant, Sweetgreen. He started the business in 2007 with fellow Georgetown graduates, Nicolas Jammet and Jonathan Neman, only 3 months after graduation.

 

Sweetgreen has developed a solid reputation for providing tasty, affordable, and filling farm to table salads with fresh ingredients. The chain began in Washington, DC but has expanded to over 60 locations in New York, California, Massachusetts, Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Illinois, employing over 1,700 workers.

 

Ru discusses what he calls “service design” which he describes as “the culmination of storytelling, technology, and design itself. Elevating simply selling a product to a personalized, consistent service to each customer”.

 

Walk into any Sweetgreen location and it’s immediately clear that this is not your typical fast food joint, even though the prices are comparable. The open kitchen design allows patrons to see the entire process. Customers can either wait approximately 15 minutes in line and another 2 or 3 minutes to order, or, like about 30% of Sweetgreen customers, they can download and use the app to place their order, which aims to provide a quicker, more convenient experience that is similar to ordering in the store. The app provides plenty of photos of the fresh ingredients available. Ordering on the app allows customers to skip the line and save time. Making the app especially handy for those with a limited amount of time for lunch.

 

It’s not just about the convenience of being able to order quickly on lunch breaks, Sweetgreen sees customers returning for dinner and on weekends because they can’t get enough of the delicious offerings on the menu. Delicious, in part, due to the fact that everything Sweetgreen sells they make themselves, including their salad dressings.

 

Their produce is delivered every morning from local farms, so everything on the menu is always fresh. The focus on fresh fare from local sources is important to the business model and beneficial to the farmers they work with. Ru meets with the farmers personally to find in season, already available crops instead of requesting they grow certain ones and tries to find uses for some ingredients that would typically not be sold. Practices such as these make Sweetgreen a more sustainable chain restaurant than those that came before it.

Organizational Psychology and Government

One of the sad realities of democratic government is that it is often those most incompetent at governance that are popular enough to get elected. This is why we see modern American and European democracies becoming theatricals where politicians shout insults at each other each election season. Polybius, the ancient Greek political scientist, once observed that democracies eventually degenerate into dictatorships because the mob vote ruins itself.

Designing an effective government requires knowing that:

  1. All people have equal value under law
  1. All people do not have equal ability or talent for governing

Western Democracies tend to assume that any person can and should have the freedom to cast their vote and potentially become elected. This ends up with popular and flattering people rising to the top, and taking the country into a conflictive and wasteful period of ruin. The masses then demand harsh controls, and you get another Napoleon.

Ancient governments tended to ignore the first principle, that all people have equal value under law. This created the setting for revolution that led to the worldwide trend toward democratic government. Sadly, people went to the other extreme. They assume that all people have both equal value and equal right and ability to govern. This is simply not true. Handing your toddler the keys to your running car is a recipe for disaster. Handing a deceptive and popular tax evader the keys to the oval office is a recipe for chronic debt and international war.

What types of brains are most suitable to govern a country? The wisest leaders of history were noted for their humility and integrity. They did not charge ahead without first consulting their staff for advice. Brains that are very narrow minded and authoritarian are ill suited for government, because they impose their narrow beliefs on others violently.

Leaders from both sides of the political spectrum of today are noted for their arrogance and lack of character. They bawl and protest loudly on national media to make up for their shady past.

The collective wisdom of the masses is usually wrong, because to arrive at their decision, they must compromise ethical principles.

Sujit Choudhry is an internationally renowned political scientist who is in the business to help policymakers make wiser decisions. Sadly, most governments of the world are not learning from the mistakes of their ancestors.

Sujit Choudhry is trying to take evidence from the past to make the path to wise government more apparent. Be sure to contact Sujit at his LinkedIn account. He looks forward to hearing from you.

Lime Crime Emerges As A Makeup Industry Leader

Lime Crime has 2 million followers on Instagram. There are people that have never heard of the brand though. This means two things. The first thing that this means is that there is a lot of interest in this product. The second thing that this means is that social media is very important for the growth of this company. Doe Deere has managed to give people access to shades of lipstick that may not be available anywhere else. That is what has made people stop and look at this company as a unique brand that is unlike Sephora or Revlon.

 

Doe Deere is the CEO with this company, and she has marketed this company in a way that was bound to separate it from the other companies that were out there. She has many bold lipstick colors that are making people notice this brand, but that was only the beginning. People recognize this brand because it is associated with the unicorn. It is called “Unicorn Makeup” by Lime Crime, and available from all major retailers. This is a symbol that makes people recognize their brand instantly. Revlon or Cover Girl do not have any mascots or symbols. That is something that is very distinct. That makes it possible for young girls to connect directly to this brand. There is lip gloss that serves as a leading product for little girls that cannot wear makeup. This makes them familiar with the products so they become customers of Lime Crime right away when they are finally able to wear makeup.

 

The bright colors will attract young girls, so this a second aspect of marketing that shows that Doe Deere is building this customer base of young girls and women that are willing to experiment with new brands. Many older women that are set in their ways may be less inclined to try new brands of cosmetics. The millennials, however, have not claimed any type of loyalty to anyone. This is the reason that she is able to attract a lot of young customers that have never worn any makeup before. Lime Crime connects with youth through social media.
