Friday Reader Q&A: Should I Be Concerned About the U.S. Debt Ceiling?

Q: Jerry, I recently found your book, Bankruptcy of our Nation, while browsing at my local bookstore. I am so glad that I have found you as you seem to be saying so much of what I am feeling deep down. I am almost 58 years old and have a large amount of money in a traditional IRA. I am very concerned about how the current debt ceiling crisis is going to impact it, and my retirement. Should I cash out now and move everything to precious metals and other hard assets? Thanks from a new reader and listener. (Don G., Newark, NJ)

Social Security to Worried Seniors: ‘We don’t know’

The risk of a U.S. default has incited panic among many older Americans, who are now calling the Social Security Administration to find out what’s going to happen to their monthly benefits if the debt ceiling isn’t raised by Aug. 2.

In response, the Social Security Administration has posted very specific instructions on its web site for how the representatives who are handling inquiries from the general public should respond.

The script is short, to the point — and not very comforting: “We’re sorry but we don’t know.”

Do You Have a Financial Blueprint For Your Future?

Whether it is a lack of time, money, or interest, we seem to like to “wing it” when it comes to our financial future. Fortunately, we don’t have to have the intellect and expertise of an architect to take steps to blueprint the kind of financial future that we want. It really takes just a short amount of time to key into the “desires of our heart” (Psalm 37:4). It begins with financial goals.

Get Ready: QE3 Is On The Way, Gold & Silver Prices Soar

Editor’s Note: As FTMDaily predicted several months ago, the Federal Reserve has just announced today that it plans to launch a new round of stimulus. We have mentioned that the Fed would make the public beg for this, as stocks tumbled and the economic conditions worsened. However, it doesn’t seem like the Fed is shy about their plans anymore. The announcement is even earlier in the year than we expected. However, the announcement is not a shock to all of us here at FTMDaily. Expect more to come as the Fed lays out its plans to “boost” the economy. More about QE3 and gold-silver pricing…

Debt Increased More Under Geithner Than Under Any Treasury Secretary in U.S. History

Editor’s Note: Few leaders in Washington have had as much of a direct role in attempting to control the U.S. economy and the financial markets than U.S. Treasury Secretary, Timothy Geithner. This week, there have been growing reports of Geithner’s desire to exit the Treasury. He has already moved his family out of the Beltway and back to New York. And who can blame him? He is at the epicenter of the worst economic crisis in recent memory and the pressure must be immense. And as we head into 2012 (think election year), there is little doubt that the White House will expect him to maintain his economic sleight of hand. The statistics below are just the warm-up as we head into 2012… And Geithner knows this more than anyone.
