NUMISMATIC VALUES MORE THAN COIN COLLECTING


Numismatic Values of History
No one talks about the depression of 1837, though the new Speaker of the House John Boehner brought up the coin and currency act of the First Congress of the United States in 1787.
What was a failing in his reference was the scandal of having a private mint contract fulfill the most important coin in our US economy, the one cent; which at that time was the Fugio Cent. This contract awarded to a Mr. Jarvis to make the copper, Fugio who abscounded with the metal and left the contract unfulfilled, left Congress to eventually mint more money. That was not enough, since commerce was more successful due to a growing population and growing goods and services. Not too far off from today, in the 21st Century.
In between, by 1835, the Hard Times of this country demanded more coin, which our US Congress, in a conservative and penureous policy decision failed to meet that demand, which plunged the country into a depression in 1837. The rich people of that time, lead by Dr. Feuchtwanger of New York took it upon themselves to mint what were called tokens, as coin for the common citizen to continue to spend hard earned money. His one cent token made with silver worth in the metals market today, the 21st Century some three dollars US.
The lesson missed of today is missed in the lapse of the knowledge of history, mixed with the lack of consistent understanding that government monetary aggregate is an historic coinage or numismatic principle different from the principles of finance and instead part of the discipline of understanding economics.
This difference between ‘coin collecting’ that is a respectable hobby, and numismatics, which is a science that includes the ‘numerical matter’ of the values of metal and alloy, the art and sculpture for the security of that metal used in exchange; all coupled with an understanding of history to advance the understanding of economics. Specifically, numismatics study offers an understanding of the economy. And, not just the economy of the United States, but especially today, the understanding of the economy of the whole world.
It was given during the realm of King George III of England, as an understanding that commerce would stand still without a copper penny, which is considered the ‘staple’ of the economy, for that is the amount to enable access for the lowest wage earner the lowest purchase power. Since Colonial Times it was understood, proven at that time that without activity from the lowest common denominator, commerce would suffer.
With poor coinage laws, Congress refused to issue coins as the population grew. The depression of 1837 gave way to prosperity when the rich realized their responsibility to the greater good and offered into circulation tokens as coins to spend. Today we do this by an act of the US Congress, and each country subject to a global economy has its own system for the manufacture of money, still asking for a sense of responsibility from the rich.
For, as the wealth changes hands, so does the responsibility to the people who aided in the building of that wealth, and therein is found the reason to tax those who earn more than $250,000.00 US to contribute back into the flow of our economy at a greater proportion than those who earn less than $250,000 US per year.
The simple fact of understanding the seven levels of our Monetary Aggregate system that offers a break from M3, holdings of up to $250,000 when the holder of that amount must work to sustain that; and M4, holdings of more than $250,000 who can let that money work for them. It is of this difference that the workers, in this case simply the money that is part of the economy, must rebuild the economy and we do this by a statistical model forsake of the circulation of coin and currency, a responsibility called for by taxes to reinstate that difference called deficit in the economy.
Once the rich simply printed more money to accommodate responsibility for more financial activity, now the government is relied upon to print more money as the government must accommodate the responsibility for more economic activity.
The numismatic illustration shows how finance is different from economics, for as the value of the coin grows by circulation and rarity in its mintage without one of those elements, the coin has less value. Appreciation for the art and historical representation separates the numismatic scholar from the coin collecting hobbyist.
The sad illustration was given last week at the 1154th Heritage Auction in Chicago in March 2011, during the 7th and last session gave off almost all the gold coins of centuries in historic content for the spot price of their gold content. What the numismatic audience noticed was the coin values had diminished from collectibles to a ‘meld down’ value.
While in a private sale, the Feuchtwanger token cent with a 2011 value in silver of $3 US valued in the ‘Bible of Token Coins,’ by Russell Rulau that suggested the value of $165 sold for $330. Maybe the numismatic lesson by some with an education goes to message our US Congress, who were elected by those without an education on the matters of coin and circulation of our money.


Mo Money, by Steve Shapiro, Carmel-by-the-Sea, Calif.

What nobody bothers considering troubles the whole world of money and economics. Nobel laureate in economics1988 Maurice Allais proved simply that with more people in the world, governments have to print more money.

It simply makes no sense that somebody has to prove that. In light of the 1975 Nations Economic Conference in Spain attended for the United States by U. S. President Gerald Ford when the six top developed countries agreed they were ‘mutually interdependent in the sphere of the international economy’ and thereby brought to a close the idea of a world bank based upon the standard price of gold. Or, that they ended the gold standard and gave rise to the need for international cooperation. As that which we have now, a system of ratio balance between nations.

The flaw in this economic change begins and ends with conservative thinking along the lines of financial tendencies and not rules of economics. Finance and economics are not at all the same thing.

A conservative mind-set stands against change. Poorly noted that after change, conservative politics stands without recognition of the change. When it comes to money in the world, the idea of competition continues ignorance of inter-active economics, which improves the value of money in the flow for everybody. The whole world is failing economically, simply because governments – all of which issue their money differently – stand on faulty, frugal measures that dictate ‘If we spend less money, the bettor off the country will be.”

Unfortunately, when governments spend money, that is how the countries get their financial rewards. The answer is in the ratio.

Government spending based on income verses government issue of more monetary aggregate has to do with two major needs within nations of people. The first is health and the second is education. Both need economic bolstering – more government influx or spending – as they both add to the income apportionment and feed the knowledgeable appropriation. One primary example is the government, economy of Brazil.

Previously the argument for equal taxes for all income levels, was challenged due to this new understanding that the shift in wealth, shifts responsibility. That means when John earns more money than Joe, those working for Joe now depend on the taxes from John. Therefore, on incomes over $250,000 a year, more responsible contributions or a greater tax burden falls upon the one who gains from the shift in wealth. Otherwise the sequestered money falls out of circulation and fewer people, within an ever growing population, have the opportunity to earn and contribute to the apportionment. The result of lower taxes for the rich creates a gap or what is seen as a government deficit.

When more people can earn money, through necessary programs, that means programs which mandate the spending of taxable income on services and disposable materials like health care; and with emphasis on services like with education; the deficit as well as unemployment fall. The nation becomes more healthy.

What the division at $250,000, which divides the monetary aggregate from M3 to M4 is that after cash (M1) and savings accounts under $250,000 (M2) the next ‘dollar’ amount or M3 represents money that you have to work for; and with regard to M4 (over $250,000) or money contained in instruments other than cash is money that works for you.

Mr Trump owes the banks for his developments, employees, service and materials that keeps the banks alive. The banks do not own Mr. Trump, he owns the banks. Similarly, China does not own U.S. currency, for the joke is ‘the Americans now work for us,’ said The Chinese executive; but the punch line is not ‘ha, ha, ha;’ but ‘and they get paid in US dollars.’ We defeated communism not with a war of destruction. We bought them into a capitalist world with our own US dollars and now they have something with which to pay us for the service.

The national debt is a burden on our future generations to work and earn. It has become a goal and not a burden, as our great nation is an inter-national contributor to global responsibility as are all the nations on this planet.

In a nation of a growing population, and that means the globe, more workers must contribute for economic and psychological responsibility – “I pay my taxes, I get to say what’s what!” And if those of us who have money working for us, incomes of more than M3 ($250,000) recognize that those workers contribute or need their contribution to the apportionment of government monetary responsibility, they at that level of income they have to pay a greater proportion of the income tax.

When an ignorant congress in the United States refuses to pass the laws necessary under our 19th, 20th and 21st Amendment of the Constitution of the United States as a responsible government, we fail to recognize the change as responsible for the inter-national economy and inter-national cooperation among developed nations.

TAXES

August 17, 2010

What is mostly overlooked in the reasoning as to why we pay taxes, what we pay to the Internal Revenue Service describes exactly what we get from the ‘service’ that has to do with ‘internal revenue.’

The first thing wage earners in the United States are asked, has to do with what their status amounts to as the gross income become incidental to the real purpose of paying income tax today. For the first purpose is to count all our money.

Remember that in 1975 at the first all nations economic summit, it was decided that our monies would face evaluation as a ratio on all our debts and services; and that goods and securities had little to do with the actual value in fluxuation of the international values of currencies. So, to facilitate this ration calculation, some order of tally or to count all our money in circulation begins with a voluntary demand for each wage earner to report their income.

Surely, in a voluntary system of reporting income, if there were no responsible consequences we could each one of us report great earnings and therefore get great respect, or not.

We have to report on what we spent our income to verify what it is we owe. Moreover, the payment is based on a scale of what we did to earn that money, so the more we earned, the proportion that we made, which was effectuated by others; mostly that which made the rich so rich. So the scale of earned income has to do with what services are paid for, and those who make more money pay for more services, because they make money off the services of others who then get service from the government paid for in part by their employers’ income. THAT’S why rich people pay more in taxes.

As discussed over lunch with Noble Laureate, Dr. Kenneth Arrow “Paying taxes is the demand for a sociological responsibility, and to offer a participation to each of us, income earners.”

Since we pay and voluntarily deduct expenses for living, our reported income; we in essence do the accounting job for our Internal Revenue Service. We count our money for the global assessment.

We get to cry out: I PAY TAXES SO I DESERVE THAT!

Surely, nobody thinks our income actually pays for the government, do they?

At last count, somewhere around the bicentennial of the United States of America, government – birthday year 200 – our government payed some $5.23 for each dollar we as individuals spent.

Our Revenue Service makes sure the accounting practices that we do for ourselves provides an appropriation for what the government can use to offer us our services. They count our income, give each one of us the realm of responsibility for the return of services, now in the whole wide world. In proper ratio, of course.

A friend of mine, whose father worked hard and made tens of millions of dollars a month died recently leaving us with loads of objections, but leaving his family with the old tax law to deal with.

The elimination of the ‘death tax’ gave way to an argument that those taxes had been paid when the individual was living, so this tax was double taxation and therefore illegal in the United States.

By the same token, with his death what comes to mind has to do with ‘directed government expenditure.’ That which the government fails to pay enough, may be covered by family trust. In this case the family trust of several billions of US dollars.

It was sometimes referred to as the Joan Baez loop-hole in personal income tax. She objected to her income going to pay for the Vietnam War, and donated so much of her income, that she actually didn’t have to pay any income tax; although she reported all of her income for the IRS and our national accounting. She therefore avoided paying for any government services that she didn’t personally support, and she did that by supporting services, personally, that she believed in.

My friend’s father was a great proponent of support services, and of giving it himself; for his belief was based on the lack of trust for the government to offer the services that he would deem appropriate. So, his billions of income were managed by hisself and sometimes his voluntary contribution was made, intentionally, illegal. He would send coins to pay the amount less that the dollars accounted for on the forms.

This great man would always own up to his responsibility and in the end wrote off, or signed off on all his responsibilities without any withholding or shorting any obligation. Not at all willing to simply spend it all before he died, just willing it upon his family to pay all their obligations without faultering.

Amongst his last words, the General Manager of the largest subscription based magazine published to date, the patron of Sunset Magazine said upon his death: “Make the last check bounce.”
