Shock Horror! US Government Loses $1.2 Trillion


By now you are probably used to the fact that I often advise you about things that may have a potentially negative impact on your wealth, or more often news about  potential opportunities to consider.

Some of the bad news I report can be alarming, but rarely do I report “alarmist” news.

There’s a huge difference between the two.

And so, some of what I’m about to tell you this weekend may be dismissed by some folks as being alarmist.

But it’s not, and that’s what makes it even more scary.

In fact, you don’t have to take my word for it. You can check the source for yourself in the US Government Report of 2017: 2017 Financial Report of the U.S. Government

What you will find in the report is a disturbing set of figures that have no need for rhetorical enhancement.

In other words, the figures alone speak for themselves; and what they say is nothing short of terrifying. I was an accountant for many years and I’m used to looking at company accounts, so I’ll break them down for you.


In a nutshell, here’s the main gist:

For 2017, the US Government reported a NET LOSS OF -$1.2 TRILLION

Just have a wee think about this figure for a moment. How much money do you have to lose, in order to have a net loss of $1.2 Trillion in one year?

You would have to lose:

  • • -$3.2 Billion per day…
  • • -$136.9 Million per hour…
  • • -$2.2 Million per second…
  • • -$2,283 per millisecond.

Can you even imagine losing over $2,000 each “thousandths of a second”?

It’s mind-boggling. Yet such this mind-boggling feat is what the US Government has managed to accomplish.

The US Government is haemorrhaging money.

And it makes me wonder how long we can sustain this rate of loss. Many other Western countries have similar problems but on a much smaller scale. Government

It might help you grasp this problem if I put things into perspective:

$1.2 Trillion is almost the size of Spain’s entire economy, and larger than Australia’s and Mexico’s economies (respectively) according to the World Bank’s estimates of 2016 GDP.

Here’s another thing to consider: how many major economic disasters or events took place in 2017?


In other words, in 2017, which was a “good” year by all standards, the US government still managed to lose $1.2 Trillion.

It’s a good thing that there were no major negative events–financial disasters on a global scale, no major recessions, no large-scale military conflicts.

It makes you wonder, how much might they lose during a not-so-good year?

Now, this net loss might not be so bad if the economy was growing as compared with 2016?

To answer this question, have a look at page 55 of the report. It lays out the US government’s calculations of net assets and liabilities.

Where they add the value of every single thing they own.

Then they subtract this net asset figure from their long-term liabilities.

You’ll see in the report that the US government’s net worth is a NEGATIVE $20.4 Trillion. Compare this to the 2016 figure of NEGATIVE $19.3 Trillion.

How does it compare? The government’s net worth declined by 5.6% over the course of 2017.

The figures clearly show that the US has far more liabilities than assets.

Are you are retiree? If so, check out the section in which they calculate the long-term implications of Social Security and Medicare.

Once you get a chance to look at these figures, ask yourself this:

  • are these those programs sustainable?
  • is there not a strong chance they are running out of money?

Many of the more complacent citizens of the Western world feel that somehow it’s okay for governments to operate in this manner.

Yet when it comes to judging the merits of a business, or conducting one’s own financial habits, such a negative performance would not be considered acceptable.

If it was you or I, we’d be declared bankrupt.Government

The figures speak for themselves, they’re there for you to ruminate upon, and they are alarming.

But, in the end, what really matters most is what these figures and their long-term economic implications mean for YOU and your own wealth.


People are talking about another recession looming.

And should a negative long-term outlook appear on the horizon, perhaps it’s time to consider protecting your financial future.

There’s never been a better time to start your own ‘Plan B.’



For some it might be an online business. I certainly would if I was you.





For others, it might mean regular saving into a non-paper money safe yet accessible harbour, like ultra reliable, dependable Gold.

Thankfully, I also do this. You should too.


Food for thought this weekend…

Gold at $10,000…? Want a piece of that?

Ever thought about having your own gold?


Okay phew…, so we’re not at war just yet.

But that doesn’t remove the urgency for you to own gold.

Watch this brand new video.

Are YOU the person who buys high and sells low, instead of the other way around? Honestly – waiting a minute longer to get gold…is just like buying high (it is still considered low right now).

Don’t wait…get started now!

You can get going for free  >> HERE  <<

I used to be an accountant and I’ve been watching the global situation with concern for a while now.

  • Not just the massive debt which is the US economy.
  • Not just the complete debacle which is Brexit over here in Europe.
  • Not just the scary geopolitical nightmare brewing over on the Pacific Rim.

But also because my wealth, which is building nicely as my online business becomes more successful, is just dwindling in value due to massive over-printing of money and horribly low interest rates.

Monetary Reset

You must have heard about this. It’s a conversation that has been going around since 2008, and more recently experts say it’s not a question of ‘if’ but ‘when’.

The banks have painted themselves into a corner, not just in the US but in supposedly ‘stable’ countries in Europe such as Germany.

If a gold standard was re-introduced, are you prepared? This is why I now think a lot about gold and educate others as to why we need to own some. Take a look at the latest information I have come across…Paper currency could become worthless if such an event occurred.

own Gold

If gold rises in value to ANYTHING CLOSE to $10,000 an ounce I will be very comfortable indeed.

So what’s the deal?

The deal – is simply this:

Start saving in gold instead of paper. Allocate a small sum every month consistently and stick to it. Get your gold stored in a vault or sent directly to you. You can have your own gold on a Mastercard for example – so if you need it – you can spend it anywhere.
