    Nominal And Real Dollars

    Here is the story that nobody will tell you.

    Each day, the mainstream media put a positive twist on the stock market. The monetary authorities know that a booming stock market brings euphoria and spending by the population. They dare not reveal this graph showing that stocks are actually in a downtrend against gold. Not one in a million investors suspects that their holdings denominated in fiat dollars are losing value daily.

    Warren Buffett is hailed as the great billionaire investor, but there’s never a word that his fiat empire is actually losing value measured against gold. The graph above shows that the Dow Jones industrial index, as denominated in fiat paper dollars, is in a super bear market. This also proves that there is a super bear market in fiat currencies.

    This is a chart that is the basis of mass confusion, though it is very simple. It involves two kinds of dollars, nominal and real dollars.

    Nominal dollars affect our lives most, because these are everyday changing dollars. They change because the U.S. government changes them by constantly devaluing (diluting) them by printing massive amounts of new dollars.

    These nominal dollars are quicksand to the assets of millions of Americans. They are the monetary unit used in contract law as well as millions of everyday transactions. Americans depend on nominal dollars, so their everyday lives are full of deception and false hope.

    Nominal (changing) dollars make a total mockery of the huge U.S. stock market. Depreciating currency creates the illusion that stocks are gaining in value; whereas if measured in real and permanent value as gold and silver, stocks are constantly losing value. The chart illustrates that.

    Real dollars are actually imaginary dollars because they remain constant and do not change in a set value. But they are a measuring comparison of the great losses in nominal devaluing dollars.
