The Treasury Department could do what it did back in the 1930s and make ownership of gold illegal in an economic depression!

Is owning gold or silver the answer during deflation?

Conceal your investment portfolio with about 20% in precious metals to make them untraceable, purchase assets from abroad by a foreign proxy, and have an out-of-country bank account!

(BUSINESS WIRE)--The U.S. Government has the authority to prohibit the private possession of gold and silver coin and bullion by U.S. citizens during wartime, and, during wartime and declared emergencies, to freeze their ownership of shares of mining companies, the Treasury Department has told the Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee.

The government's authority to interfere with the ownership of gold, silver, and mining shares arises from the Trading With the Enemy Act, which became law in 1917 during World War I and applies during declared wars, and from 1977's International Emergency Economic Powers Act, which can be applied without declared wars.

While the Trading With the Enemy Act authorizes the government to interfere with the ownership of gold and silver particularly, it also applies to all forms of currency and all securities. So the act could be applied not just to shares of gold and silver mining companies but to the shares of all companies in which there is a foreign ownership interest.

Further, there is no requirement in the law that the targets of the government's interference must have some connection to the declared enemies of the United States, nor even some connection to foreign ownership. Anything that can be construed as a financial instrument, no matter how innocently it has been used, is subject to seizure under the Trading With the Enemy Act and the International Emergency Economic Powers Act.

Most Americans may be surprised to learn that the Trading With the Enemy Act and the International Emergency Economic Powers Act could expropriate them instantly and far more broadly without any of the due process. All that is needed is a presidential proclamation of an emergency of some kind.

So gold and silver investors may want to ask their members of Congress to seek repeal of the statutes that give the government the authority to interfere with the private ownership of gold and silver, emergencies or not. And ordinary citizens with no particular interest in gold and silver may want to ask their members of Congress to reconsider these statutes simply for being wildly tyrannical.

A big economic depression is predicted by some, starting sometime before 2010.

They will stop you from getting your money out of the bank in times of depression!

Could what happened to Argentina citizens happen to American citizens?

America has been in a recession since March 2001. It simply takes peoples growing distrust and loss of confidence because of dishonest, corrupt, and secretive corporate and political leaders to cause a depression similar to the Great Depression of the 1930s.

In October 1929, then United States President Herbert Hoover tried to cheer his country with the words: 'The fundamental business of the country, that is production and distribution of commodities, is on a sound and prosperous basis.

The Coming Economic Depression
By Mark S. Watson Office of the Comptroller of the Currency The Federal Reserve System is the central bank of the United States. It was founded by Congress in 1913. The Bank for International Settlements (BIS) is an international organisation which fosters international monetary and financial cooperation and serves as a bank for central banks.

The rise in stock prices does not indicate a healthy economy. It simply proves that the market is full of cheap credit resulting from the Federal Reserve's increases in the money supply. Consumer spending is a better indicator of the real state of the economy than stocks.

When the credit boom dries up then stocks will fall sharply.

Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) summed it up best when he said:

“From the Great Depression, to the stagflation of the seventies, to the burst of the bubble; every economic downturn suffered by the country over the last 80 years can be traced to Federal Reserve policy. The Fed has followed a consistent policy of flooding the economy with easy money, leading to a misallocation of resources and artificial “boom” followed by recession or depression when the Fed-created bubble bursts”.

During the Bush administration the Federal Reserve under former chairman Alan Greenspan expanded debt with easy credit via low interest rates. Greenspan along with current chairman Ben Bernanke put the US on the path to hyperinflation and very likely will result in sudden deflation with the collapse of the dollar.

The Bush family rode in the backseat of limousine during the Great Depression. It certainly will not hurt them if it happened today. Some people think the Bush family and friends want it to happen because they would profit from it.
