“Cash is King.”
It’s a mantra many people live by.
But what does it even mean?
And should YOU live by this conventional “wisdom”?
To some, Cash is King means money is the ultimate source of power and happiness.
These people sit on their money pile and give themselves a high five for “making it”.
“Cash is King” means money is your protector when times get tough.
It means you should hold on to your cash, right?
But have you ever dug into what this phrase really means?
It was popularized in the 1980s by Pehr G. Gyllenhammar – former CEO of Volvo.
Contrary to what you might think…
Mr. Gyllenhammer did not think you should conserve cash like your life depends on it.
He coined this expression to mean:
Cash is a necessary short-term asset.
It’s something you collect, for the purposes of investing in future expansion.
In other words…
Cash is not something you keep.
Cash is something you put to work to expand your wealth.
Pehr G. Gyllenhammer was a smart guy.
You don’t get to be CEO of a $35 billion dollar auto manufacturer unless your mind operates on a higher plane than most people’s.
What the Volvo CEO knew was this…
Cash is a depreciating asset. It loses value over time (even when the economy is flying).
Think about it.
The Fed sets its inflation target at 2% per year.
It means the financiers who map out our financial futures are HAPPY for prices to rise every year.
So the $100 bill in your pocket today…
Becomes $98 next year.
And $96.04 the year after that.
Year by year you get poorer – because of decisions made in Washington.
If this happens to you during good times – what’s going to happen in bad times (like the ones we’re experiencing right now)?
Latest inflation figures show prices are rising by 8.2% per year.
It means – if you do nothing with your cash – you’ll be 8.2% poorer next year.
And you know what’s really scary?
No one knows when the situation will get better.
Even The Fed cannot agree over when they’ll wrestle inflation back under control.
It could take 1 year.
It could take 2 years.
What if it takes 5 years for inflation to ease?
Those who do nothing could find themselves 40% poorer than they are right now.
I’m sure you’ll agree…
That doesn’t bear thinking about!
But there is good news.
You don’t have to let inflation steal your wealth.
And you don’t have to wait for the Fed to save your finances.
In fact, you can actually exploit this situation to your advantage – by using inflation to expand your wealth.
The answer lies in Real Estate.
According to Bloomberg, big time investors are treating real estate investment as “a hedge against inflation.”
It’s why Berkshire Hathaway, BlackRock, and Vanguard own property portfolios worth trillions of dollars.
But you’ve got to invest the RIGHT way.
