The "Intrinsic Value" of Currency...

Picture taken from:

This diagram shows where the "Intrinsic Value" lay in our society. As there are finite resources, such as various type of mine, coal, crude oil and natural gas. These resources can not be increase overnight, and in many cases, some of the production output of those resources are reaching its peak and will go down hill in very short future (if not now), such as crude oil.

On the other hand, many government are printing more money to save the current financial crisis. Now, the market is having more Money while the society maintain the same productivity or the same amount of goods, which will lead to Hyper-Inflation or Devalue of the Currency.

So, the Cause for the Hyper-Inflation or Devalue of the Currency has a direct relationship with the supply of money that is growing faster and out of proportion from the available goods in the market.

So... The question is that...
Is it that the series of events in this financial crisis had happened ACCIDENTALLY due to poor planning, that call for all this plans to save the market?


Is it that the End Picture was already planned, and the series of event was INTENTIONALLY created to lead the public to support a certain final decision?

For most public, only time can tell.
But, a good decision would be to hold on to asset with "Intrinsic Value" (as show in the above diagram), rather than keeping too much Cash. Such as ETFs(Exchange Traded Funds) in Gold(GLD,GDX), Silver(SLV), Commodities (DBC) and Energy (XLE,XES) are good choice.

"War is too important to be left to the generals."

With the same token, I would suggest that:-

Personal Finance matter is Too Important to be left to the Financial Advisors!

Thus, it is so serious that individual Must spend part of the time to learn and understand how economy works!
