Do you understand what inflation is really doing to your dollar?

We at HolisticSurvival.com believe that when it comes to protecting your profits in the future, the 800 pound gorilla sitting in the corner will be inflation. There may be in a slight lull right now but, don’t worry, it’s coming back with a vengeance.

Let’s have a quick lesson in how inflation can erode the value of traditional investments and savings. The government reports an annual inflation rate of somewhere around 4% usually. Our sister company, Platinum Properties Investor Network, knows the real number is north of 10% but we’ll use that for a real world number.

Let’s say today the dollar in your pocket will purchase exactly one dollar worth of product. Next year, assuming a 10% rate of inflation, that very same dollar will purchase, in real terms only, .90 cents worth of product. The next year you’ve lost another 10% of purchasing power and your dollar will now buy only .81 cents worth of stuff. The key point here is that, while the dollar you hold in your hands two years later still looks like the very same dollar we began this example with, it is worth substantially less.

See how this works? This is why it’s a losing bet to have your savings on investments in dollar denominated assets. This includes stocks, bonds, and mutual funds. What’s the answer? Are we doomed to eternally watch our ever-declining dollar until it’s worth almost nothing? Not if you click over to www.JasonHartman.com and check out The Creating Wealth Show.
