Money vs Currency – Hidden Secrets Of Money Episode 1 – Mike Maloney

Stephen Childs


  1. Hi Mike Maloney,
    What are your thoughts on cryptocurrency as the next replacement for store of value over gold. As the new generation comes foward, they are more dependent and secure in digital assets over physical ones.

    Have you researched digital currency and its affect on the FIAT crisis we are in?

  2. Living in a culture of greed . Want want want . Be happy with what you have . Don't be unhappy with what you don't have . This will kill off the greedy federal reserve banks and their mates the super rich .

  3. That why it use as petrodollar..
    Without petrodollar USA would be doom…

  4. The first currency was in a place in East Africa know as Kenya, where the Bantu tribe offered to exchange food staff and cattle for wepons from the Nilots.

    Thank me later.

  5. Looks like Mike Maloney is making up his own definition here. Money is just another word for currency. Since we live in a FIAT system it in no way can ever maintain a fixed value. Gold and silver are precious metals and are not used in coins anymore.
    It's not hard to understand. There is no conspiracy!

  6. Stop reading comments and pay attention!

  7. I also learned that the Federal Reserve made a law that every gold and oil should converted into dollars not any currency that's why America became so powerful despite of several setbacks.

  8. What I want to know is… Has the currency collapse already happened? Or is it ABOUT to happen? We're 5 or 6 years latter, and I'm not sure if I missed the boat on this… Either way, I should probably buy a few silver dollars, good to keep on hand, and they're not as expensive as gold yet.

  9. Not until bankers are arrested and sent to prison will we start seeing some real changes in the management of currency and the economies of the world. Bankers are evil scum.

  10. Here's a good question what if people on welfare and gr and s*** like that start buying a small percentage of gold you can buy coins that are hundred percent gold for $200 ⅓ or less of normal size coin but it is something instead of nothing

  11. Watching this in 2019 hit a like.

    The best investment is in educating yourself, that's what brought me here.

  12. I have a big problem with the video. It doesn't compare the money supply relative to the increase production of the country.

  13. “The further you look into the past the further you can see into the future” the Bible says nothing is new under the sun what happen will happen again 1:35

  14. The Gist of what I understood from this lecture, Anyone please correct me If I went wrong somewhere, it's appreciated.
    The real difference between currency and money is that money stores value over time, currency may or may not, for example, gold and silver are forms of money whose value will always exist.
    the government hates gold as money because they can't print them it's something they can't control. In the current system the produce currency out of thin air which of course they can't do with gold, then comes the concept of inflation, the term refers to the increase in supply of currency by the government which results in increase of prices of the products you buy with it, the real estate never changes, so all we see in the market, the increase in prices it's all a hoax, it is actually the inflation caused by the fed and central banks.
    The real crisis comes when the cycle repeats, the time when fiat money is considered merely as a piece of paper by the consumers we all turn to gold and silver and the prices of gold and silver rise up until the point when their value becomes higher than the currency we have. these circumstances will eventually hit all countries not just America, it's not happened yet because the inflation American fed is creating is shipped overseas that is dollar is now shipped to other countries in exchange of hardware but when the importing countries realize this game theory they will stop accepting dollars as there are too many of them, the crisis will start in the due course.
    there's one more point, sooner or later all the inflation end up in rising of food prices, which happened in the middle east, a revolution was born out of this, but this time it's different because it is going to happen globally.

  15. 5:31, actually it's not that true, because goods pricing also depends on relative scarsity of them, easy understanding example:
    1 oz of gold gets one cow in Egypt, but you can get same cow in China for 2 oz, because (in this case) China, does not have a big agriculture productivity, so there's less cows avaible for purchasing, if so, Cows are more expensive, no matter what unit of value you use to exchange them, they will always more expensive than buying them in Egypt. PD: i have a bachellor at economics at Tucson University

  16. But people buy paper gold and silver, a piece of paper which says they own gold and silver which they are never allowed to see or touch.

    It is likely that this gold or silver is not real and paper gold and silver allow for market manipulations keeping the price low.

  17. Well it's June 23, 2019. This video is still relevant today. Only now cryto was in demand but is slowly lacking luster.

  18. Thanks so much for posting . This gives the people of the world an understanding of the way things really are . Some are determined to have world government and they say they will have it either by consent or by conquest . We the common people will never consent and here in America when things get so bad like they did in the Arab Spring movement , the results will be the same . The rich and famous will be the first targets !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Mike ; my thought on your question is , as long as there is physical currency , money or assets , no one can lock down our assets . When digital assets replace currency one person ( The right person ) Christians call the anti-Christ , can lock down everyone's assets to where they can neither buy nor sell . It's coming !!!!!!!!!!!!!———————————————————————Ernest E. Johnson

  19. Mr I think that gold is is a currency but today's time gold is not used as a currency.

  20. Before You Asking for Gold make sure you allow immigration and stop racism in your country ok?
    Because we know that barbarian will start colonizing poor country to steal their gold and start destroying their land.
    Gold is not the solution because i know west and barbarian again will colonize a poor country to steal their gold just like old barbaric day when slavery is so trendy. Also Gold Mining can destroy planet earth you will cause landslide during typhoon or Earthquake.

  21. then QE69 then QE420

    not that it isnt a serious matter but coudnt resist GP reference

  22. LABOR is more important, if everything collapses, people that know how to grow food will be more important than food. Its a shame that we do not value 'true' farmers more. I say 'true' because people that own the farming markets are not actual farmers and therefore are worthless expect in a bubble

  23. Another BS show and correct, I am not buying your book

    I hate to ask this question BUT WHO sets the price of an ounce of gold? Is it always and forever the same? Will it ~never change? LOL

  24. The only purpose for Money is to exchange it for Goods and Services. People can still Bartar and Trade for things but don't on a regular basis because the economy is so Consumer focused.

  25. If gold is so valuable, and my US dollars are so worthless, then why will these gold companies give me their gold in exchange for my US dollars?

  26. I agree with the gold and silver value. How do you determine if gold is all pure when you purchase it? Kings and leaders used to clip coins and devalue gold and silver with metal alloys. How can the regular person determine this?

  27. I want to add the following, in response to people who tend to dismiss what Mr. Maloney is sharing with us, because they think this is just an advertisement, from which Mr. Maloney profits. ~ I have seen Mike Maloney in several other videos, in the one when Puerto Rico had the hurricane, in interviews where other people interview him, in other videos he has made besides this series. He explains in episode 1 how he got into this rabbit hole in the first place; he was helping manage his mother's funds. He says he started GoldSilver.com, as a financial means to pay for the videos that he puts out onto youtube, and that he does not receive any income from the profits of GoldSilver.com. He is not the president of the company. Of course it's possible that he is lying, but I've bought coins from this company, and dealt extensively with an employee of the company, and she also said, Mr. Maloney does not have anything to do with the running of the company. I think this at least is true, because he spends a lot of time continuing to make videos, although I have no proof that he does not make money from this company. I can tell you, my father, who passed away in 2015, understood inflation very well, and urged me to read, "The Creature from Jekyll Island," which I did. This provides the history of the Federal Reserve, which is not, "Federal;" it is not a government agency. It is a banking cartel. When my father died, we had at home $70,000 worth of semi-numismatic coins in gold, silver and also what is called, "junk," silver, i.e., pre 1965 U.S. coins. My parents lived on their investment income, saving a considerable amount each year, during their retirement years, for over 20 years. Dad didn't have a college education, but he really understood inflation. I am so thankful he did, and thankful for what he taught me. Whether Mike Maloney makes money from selling gold and silver or not, I don't care. What he is saying is true. If you believe him, you do not have to buy from him. There are lots of dealers you can search out and compare.

  28. No one talks about solution ? Like what the government supposed to do ? What are we supposed to do ? How do we get out of this crisis ?

  29. No currency lasts forever….nothing lasts forever. The oldest currency still in circulation is the british pound (over 1000 years) and that wont last forever. If the dollar gets half as good a run as the pound we have another 700+ years left. Silly argument to say currencies that become fiat dont last…..the proper argument is no currency lasts

  30. Thank you so much for this video good sir. Loved the recap at the end. You managed to make a rather complicated issue, alot easier to digest and understand. Keep up the great work. You're serving humanity. God bless you with eternal happiness for looking out for humanity

  31. WHY are you not talking about this Mike:?? FED is still shrinking balance sheet despite all the easing talk. Gold aint going nowhere til this turns… (Bottom most recent numbers.)


  32. The MMT people say that fiat currency value is has base demand set by taxation. How does this relate to value of currency, keeping in mind all the was discussed around valuable metals?

  33. in a 100 years gold only rised by $1000 per oz, back in 1915 it cost 400 now in 2019 it cost 1400, I cant see how gold will cause a wealth transfer?

  34. i just came back to this episode to say thank you Mike Maloney, this documentary and your book opened my eyes and got me to put gold and silver in my portfolio.

  35. Am starting to think this guy invested already in gold and silver and wants to prop it up,

  36. Smh, the federal reserve has failed in its charter for over a century! And "We The People" still haven't united to get rid of it, even though the fed along with the government has stolen so much from us.

  37. The value of the US dollar lies in the power of the US military. The ability to kill anyone who threatens US financial hegemony props up the dollar and gives confidence in the dollar.

  38. So pretty soon cryptocurrency will become "crypto money" as more businesses and corporations start to adopt it and allow people to buy "More" things with it. And aren't the exchange rates for units of Crypto the same everywhere cryptocurrency is on the l no matter what fiat currency is buying it.Am I correct?

  39. Great series. My question is this, why is investment in companies like stocks, funds, etc not included? The shares will act essentially like Gold or Silver, as inflation goes up, so will the value for each share, so in essence, you are protecting yourself. The inherent value of the company will not go down, Apple will have the same relative value as inflation goes up, so each share will go from 120 to 220 to 2000 to reflect its value. So why not stocks?

  40. The most annoying part of this is that people are completely hipnotised.
    You can tell them all this and they will agree with you but do nothing.

  41. But gold sucks the return in a 5 year period is like 2.3 percent wtf? I taugt gold was great till I saw the time and returned no way!

  42. Real money is Energy and Force.
    What you can DO & what you can EAT.
    (Food itself being a store of Life Energy, solar power energy stored as biochemical compounds.)
    Gold and Silver are still symbols of value. Real Value is what you Really can use something for, ultimately to increase or preserve your own life. You can't eat gold. You can eat a 50 kilo sack of beans, even save some and plant it to feed your family.
    You can plant sliced potatoes and grow them. Ultimately you need food, water, shelter, protection, trade, medicine, and opportunity to create wealth.
    You create wealth through converting time+resources+effort = Value. Your Value added. time+cotton+effort= blue jeans you trade for $$$ a symbol you trade for coffee and chicken, electricity and water, etc…
    USA Petro Dollars are used for Force & Energy.
    Backed by the full faith of the People and FORCE of the U.S. Military global super power.
    So harvest ENERGY, store it & trade it for paper or gold. Official U.S. Mint Gold, or Real Estate / Real goods you can lend, lease, rent, or resell at a value added profit.

  43. prices go up the currency supply goes up but my wallet still stays the same size…

  44. This is so fucked up. When you think about it yo see you cannot get anywhere without this currency thing. As long as you are on this Planet you are forced to play by the rules because the system had been designed in such a way that it's almost hack proof

  45. It is written on the Dollar bill, It is legal Tender for DEBTS both public and private!!!

  46. you have lost me when you have mentioned about "supernova", my friend, there is no such thing except in your mind,as usual they are mixing truths with garbage and lies…😞😞😞

  47. For only mike ..we have two gold city 5000 years ago ..india ..bharat .hindusatan

  48. This content is so precious. It should be spreaded all over the world. I really would like to translate these videos to portuguese but I'd like a permission. I'm afraid that Mike Maloney wouldn't allow that and I end up suffering any punishment from youtube.

  49. Great video, and you are very intelligent! Your Rationality and arguments would definitely trigger leftists and far left radicals! They can’t compete with you in a debate or logic, so their only immature response is anger and violence!

  50. Thank you Mike Maloney!…from a lifetime honorary member of the Ludwig Von Mises Institute Auburn University campus!

  51. Quantitative easing is not explained correctly. They don't just give banks free money Weee!!! What they do is create fake money in an account at the Fed and then buy assets from banks. The banks get this "money" hence inflation. But eventually those assets are sold back to the public and "supposedly" the two should balance each other out. But realistically they are sold for less than purchased value so the difference in those values represents the inflationary pressure.

    Why is this important?

    Because all of those billions you hear about in QE cycles IS NOT the literal amount of new money entering the economy. It's more complicated than that.

  52. at the end of days -what has more value–gold that you can't eat or real food.. food is king.. and life..

  53. 12:53 "Everything you want out of money…gold doesn't go away". Neither does the mercury and other contamination that is destroying rain forests and rivers and other habitats, and destroying the health of the subsistence gold miners and their families, so that smug people in their easy chairs can eat their artisanal cake.

  54. The intro to this video tells you how can YOU benefit personally, nothing about what is a responsible future for mankind.
    I hope it gets a little more unselfish later.
    Could it be an exercise in pump-and-dump?

  55. Excellent video. Just one small correction. Gold actually can corrode (tarnish) if exposed to certain acids, it does not naturally decay in nature.

  56. This is very interesting and I know Gold and Silver will be a good investment but isn't it all psychological at the end of the day. I mean Gold and Silver are finite and are to some degree scarce resource. What I'm trying to say is we have a system where we have poor, rich and people in the middle, and the Gold and silver cannot plug this gap as its a scares resource. So please tell me how people will get paid for their labour. I think this is important as the Human population will only increase over time and they will need to be compensated for their work. I do understand the argument for a store of value and I strongly feel the Governments have ruined the basic fabric of our living standards by complicit negligence of letting things get out of hand but is Gold and silver the answer? I feel the system could have worked but human nature or greed became the MO of how things are conducted. It's very sad because you would think as a species we would learned a few lessons by now. I guess we are floored. Does not bode well!

  57. People behind this videos must have tons of gold. Why else would they sponsor it this much? just to increse the demand for prices to go up.

  58. Fiat currency is government issued currency, which can be backed by a commodity but not necessarily so. Fiat means "Let it be done (so)!" There are different types of fiats. Currency isn't "In God or gold we trust", but "In government we trust". A government fiat. In that governance the public trust. Basically the current currency system is pie in the sky. The system is made up as the global economy stumbles along. New tools like QE and negative interest rates were make up to assuage an ailing economy. A bandaid on a gaping wound. As with all lies, the truth will one day come out. Unfortunately soon the truth will appear in the form of a global economic depression. The world is presently in an extended global recession.

  59. Our so-called "educational" system is doing a spectacular job turning out EDUCATED IDIOTS. Those who study modern-day banking and [Keynesian] economics believe that central bank counterfeiting and commercial bank fractional-reserve banking is the way banking operates, with no concept of honest banking practices! And those who study law, including so-called "constitutional law," do not study the Constitution and actual constitutional law, but a mythical, so-called "case 'law,'" which is simply what judges say, often erroneously, the Constitution says — rather than what the Constitution actually says and means! EDUCATED IDIOTS all!

  60. In distinguishing between currency and money, the constitutional "dollar[ ]" mentioned twice in the U.S. Constitution was, and is, a coin containing at mintage 371.25 grains [or, 77.34375% of an ounce] of pure silver [eg., a Morgan silver dollar or a Peace silver dollar] and deserves to be notated with a dollar sign: $. The fiat [pretend] Federal Reserve Note so-called "dollar" deserves to be notated with a fern sign: FRN, for example, a one-"dollar" Federal Reserve Note as FRN 1.00; two-"dollar" as FRN 2.00; five-"dollar" as FRN 5.00, and so on. This can help to wean one away from thinking of the currency as actual money.

  61. it's very interesting that when you talk about what real money is, they'll tell you to shut up by "Wow, you're rich now. Buy me a feast." argh…

  62. Hello Mike, love the video series but quick note about the audio version of book, Gold and Silver sold on Audible. I just listened to the 50 sec sample, basically just a disclaimer and non-liability comment and no content information at all. After that most listeners will be turned off. If you are able, change that…

  63. I understand completely . but I have a question.why do countries go broke if they can print their own money. Because each country can just print out secretly


  65. Hello Mike.
    Thank you for great videos. I love all the information you provide.
    What is the best way and store gold as an investment.

    Thanks for your time.

  66. Mike Maloney, you are just the best teacher ever. I have watched the series and am watching again. My fave videos ever. I have learned so much from these vids and your book Gold and Silver. This should be taught in schools, but we all know why it isn't. Thanks for giving out such valuable information.
