My Silver Can Beat Up Your Dollar
Article by Ronald Roberts
If the dollar index drops, the price of silver will be affected. So what does that mean to you? Take five minutes to read about 200 years of silver money in America.
What is the history of silver throughout the ages and even in the United States. Silver coins have been used since the time of Alexander the Great. Silver is a relatively easier metal to work with than steel. In modern times there are endless industrial uses for silver. Silver even has medical applications.
In early America before the establishment of a national mint what commonly circulated for money was not British money but pieces of eight. These were Spanish coins and according to historians were probably the most widely used coins at that time. The standard size of our dollar was derived from the Spanish dollar. The Morgan dollar is actually based on the size of the Spanish coins from the 16th and 17th century.
In the American colonists war with Britain the Continental Congress issued paper dollars called Continentals. These dollars . . . → Read More: My Silver Can Beat Up Your Dollar

Question by CJlove: Does anyone know what a german Zwei Rentenmark is worth, all the sights I’ve found are in german.?
I can only read dates and days of week in german and this bill has two dates on it and they are October1923, which is the only year these bills were supposed to have been used and the other date appears to be January 30, 1937. It has Berlin on it and it is stamped twice, one large imprint and another smaller one. My Great Uncle sent it to my Grandfather, after WWI as a souvineer, he said it was worth about 80 cents American money then. I’d never heard of a Rentenmark til we found it in Pappy’s papers, recently.
oops It was WWII, not WWI that Uncle Edsel brought back the Rentenmark.
Answer by KirbyHi!
I’m German and I remmember that the Rentenmark was launched as a reaction to the great inflation where a simple bread costed more than 1 billion Reichsmark.
I searched (a bit desultorily) and found on the German site
that 2 Rentenmark with 7 numbers on it . . . → Read More: Does anyone know what a german Zwei Rentenmark is worth, all the sights I’ve found are in german.?
Question by Nigel Smith: Do the Germans now own the New York Stock Exchange?
Main stream media say Deutsche Boerse merged with NYSE, but the reality is the Germans now own the NYSE. “Guten Tag” everybody.
Obama has made no effort for real economic reform in fact he just continues to spend more money and create more debt. The world no longer wants our debt and paper instead they want to convert their dolar into real assets, so a lot more of our companies will be up for grabs in the immediate future.

Question by Spaz: paper questions. is it good?
Count how many electronic devices you own. Now count how many of those you use on a daily bases. Now think about where all of the power to run those items comes from. As simple as it is, many Americans never think about where the power to run their personal gadgets, there only worry is about how big the bill is going to be at the end of the month. The truth is, Americans are the ones who need to think about energy consumption the most, because America uses far more energy per capita than any other nation in the world. This is because we have more money to burn, and we are completely energy dependent. If we want out world to continue to thrive, we as Americans are going to have to start using less energy as a whole and building more ways to reduce dependencies on oil and other unrenewable, dirty resources. The purpose of this paper is to inform the public about the salvations and pitfalls of different sources . . . → Read More: paper questions. is it good?
Question by End Central Banking: Is this a good example of propaganda that is causing the United States to fail?
FORTUNE — Deflation may be on Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke’s tongue, but inflation is wagging in at least one corner of the economy. Obscure books analyzing the causes and consequences of bone-chilling inflation in Germany following World War I are now hot commodities.
Jens O. Parsson’s out of print economic treatise, Dying of Money: Lessons of the Great German and American Inflations, is selling for $ 249.90 on Amazon, while an old hard-cover copy of Adam Fergusson’s When Money Dies: the Nightmare of the Weimar Collapse was recently offered at $ 1,705.63. A rushed paperback UK edition of Fergusson’s book has held onto the number one spot for business books on Amazon UK for more than twenty-six days and is now climbing Amazon’s US rankings, while a scan of Parsson’s previously unavailable book has been posted online for the hand-wringing masses worldwide.

Question by nachtkennerin: How easy is it to become a citizen in Germany?
Here in America it’s pretty impossible, unless you have a crapload of money or marry an American. Germans out there – how easy is it to move to Germany and attain citizenship (without marrying a German) or at least a greencard so you can work and live there?
Additional question: Let’s assume it’s really tough to get the actual papers and permissions to live in Germany past the three month mark. (I assume it’s 3 months like most countries.) If I just lived there illegally, how easy would it be to get a job and support myself without official papers and junk? Do you have national IDs there? Would it be impossible to find a legitimate job that’s not paying you under the table and so forth?
Answer by CHEO RHARD HERE IN AMERICA??? NO KIDDING. THAT IS WHY THERE ARE SO MANY ILLEGALS. I LIVED IN GERMANY FOR MANY YEARS. THEY ALSO HAVE MOUNTAINS OF PAPERWORK TO . . . → Read More: How easy is it to become a citizen in Germany?
Question by Concerned: Is WW2 German/Nazi stuff worth anything today to anyone?
Okay, my girlfriend’s former step-father who died a while back was in World War II and was a spy in Nazi Germany, he brought back a lot of souveniers from the war including the following:
-A nazi knife with a swastika on the handle that has “blood and glory” etched into the blade in German.
-A Walther PPK 7.65 cal automatic from the early 50′s thats in good condition and still fires.
-Postcards in almost mint condition from around the time of the war.
-an intact MRE kit from WW2 with a mini-pack of cigarettes and other stuff still in its wrapping.
-A small-ish nazi flag that was grabbed off one of their cars towards the end of the war (we think).
-Papers/identification from german soldiers he killed.
and other stuff like that.. its all in a bag in my closet now, I was thinking maybe theres people out there who would pay money for this kind of stuff?
Well after reading these responses and considering I don’t know that much on the subject, i’m going to . . . → Read More: Is WW2 German/Nazi stuff worth anything today to anyone?
Question by no one: WWII Review. Please help?
1.) In the early 1930s, Stalin altered the Soviet Union’s foreign policy
when he sought closer ties with Nazi Germany
by increasing the revolutionary activities of the Comintern worldwide
by drawing Russia into isolation
through seeking closer cooperation with the western democracies
2.) The name of Auschwitz will always stand as a reminder of the
Betrayal of the Czechs to Hitler by the French and British in 1939
Rapid defeat of French military forces by the Nazis in 1940
The “final question”
Nazi annexation of Austria in 1938
3.) The fact that the National Socialists were able to gain sufficient electoral support in the early 1930s to come to power was due, in part, to the pander generated by the Treaty of Versailles and the
Communist efforts to seize power by force
Triumph of Mussolini in Italy
Inflation of the 1920s and depression of the early 1930s
ardent support they received from the much-revered president Hindenburg

Question by Emily♥: plz help!!?
I need to know the history of the german coin, and the history of paper money in germany. help would REALLY be appreciated. thanks.
Answer by ♥ Kate ♥General history of money in Germany
Prior to the introduction of money, barter was the only way to exchange goods. Bartering has several problems, most notably timing constraints. If you wish to trade pigs for wheat, you can only do this when the pigs and wheat are both available at the same time and place – and without proper storage that may be a very brief time.
With a trade standard like gold, you can sell your pigs at the “best time” and take the gold coins. You can then use that gold to buy wheat when the harvest comes in. Thus the use of money makes all commodities become more liquid.
Where trade is common, barter systems usually lead quite rapidly to the emergence of several key goods with monetary properties. In the early British colony of New South Wales in Australia, rum emerged quite soon after settlement as the . . . → Read More: plz help!!?
