Whiskey As An Alternative Asset


wealthymattersOlder than income tax ,consumed in almost every country in the world today,simple commodity blending whisky ,still in the barrel, traded and held inside Scottish warehouses ,with no VAT tax or duty to pay is an alternative asset, which has consistently beaten almost all major financial markets year after year. Over the past decade, maturing Scotch whisky has outperformed the UK stock market, dividends included and paid better returns even than London property.

These returns from maturing Scotch whisky, still in the barrel, have also been remarkably steady.Since the financial crisis began a decade ago, barrelled whisky has never returned less than 60% after all costs when sold at six years old. It has never paid less than 108% at eight years old, and never paid less than 190% at 12. Read more of this post

SmartOwner – Connecting Investors And Developers


wealthymattersThere is no getting around the fact that the real estate business requires cash. Though not always a whole lot of your own cash – other people’s money and borrowed money works just as well!

There is also no getting around the fact that in the last few decades real estate has made many Indians a great deal of money, often more than their lifetime savings, perhaps even  lifetime earnings. This wealth building effect of real estate has really seeped into the Indian psyche, so much so that these days you find builders in the Mumbai Metropolitan Area urging people to pay a small EMI and secure the future of the next seven generations of their family!

The Turf War To Issue Currency


wealthymatters

To be able to issue currency or determine what passes for money and on what terms, is the ability to impose your will on others and settle deals in your favour.So small wonder that governments, bankers, billionaires and would-be-billionaires see the benefit in fighting to issue money. Go back to history and you see kings have issued currency, bankers/ moneychangers/ money movers and central bankers have issued currencies and then again desperate societies have often come up with tokens for use amongst themselves…………The same old game is playing out again.

Following speech is a sample of a banker trying to ally with state power to squish private money issuers. Read the arguments,file them away for future reference. If you hear these arguments repeated in the media, know them for the propaganda they are. Are they all rubbish arguments? NO. But neither are they the whole story. And passively swallowing them doesn’t serve your best interests. Read more of this post
