Ferenc Toth is founder of Your Personal Bank TM. He is passionate about helping people gain control of their money, create tax-favored income, and having access to more funds over their lifetime! Ferenc is a voice for common sense. He cuts through the noise to help us understand how current events affect our money, economy, and our freedom.

In the 1970’s, Saudi Arabia agreed to sell their oil exclusively in US currency. In return, the US agreed to protect Saudi Arabia. Recently, Saudi Arabia has decided to not renew the agreement. They will sell their oil in multiple currencies. 
 
This is a seismic event economically. It will have massive effects in the short and long-term.
 
This agreement solidified the US dollar as the world’s reserve currency. Any country or company that bought oil from Saudi Arabia had to use US dollars. Also, about 80% of world trade is transacted in US currency.
 
This has created a strong demand for US dollars worldwide. For example, it is estimated there are more $100 bills in Russia than the US because of the need to use US currency to purchase oil or trade internationally. 
 
The US government has been able to easily sell bonds due to the global reserve currency status. Due to the perceived safety, the interest rates offered on US bonds were lower than bonds from other countries. This has had the effect of keeping interest rates lower in the US.
 
The reduced demand for US dollars will likely have the following economic effects:
 
Interest rates will be higher on average in the future than the past 50 years.
 
Goods produced outside the US will cost more. This will increase inflation.
 
The US will have less influence geopolitically due to the weakened reserve currency status.
 
 
Protect your money. Diversify your portfolio. This is particularly important with increased uncertainty. Reduce market risk. Reduce your tax liability. Increase returns safely. Increase liquidity to take advantage of future opportunities. 
 
This is the best time to invest in annuities and high cash value insurance in 40+ years. Fixed interest assets are expected to increase for the next 5 -10 years due to higher for longer interest rates.
 

Until the federal government starts spending less than it receives to start paying down the debt, the upward pressure on bond interest rates will continue. Vanguard and others have recently predicted bond interest rates will increase over the next 5-10 years.

The federal government fiscal irresponsibility creates an opportunity.

You can invest in high cash value Your Personal bank TM policies that are insured, with guarantees, income tax-free, highly liquid, and likely to increase returns for the next 5-10 years!

Jewish Perspectives on the News and Politics with Burt Siegel

This program will not hold back on what the host and his guests believe is wrong with an American society in which anti-Jewish sentiments as well as racism have become too often tolerated, where cooperation across party lines is treated as treachery, where immigrants and refugees are seen as a threat to the “American Way of Life” and the gap between the ultra wealthy and the average American is ever widening. While it will reflect the values of Judaism and the Democratic party all are welcomed to share their thoughts regarding how we can achieve the dream of what our nation aspires to be about.
