TFMR Podcast #31 - Jeff Nielson of BullionBullsCanada


On Thursday, I spoke again with Jeff Nielson of BullionBullsCanada. Jeff has recently written a terrific series entitled "The Road To Bullion Default" and I thought you'd find it interesting.

There are two parts in the series. Here is the first:

And here is Part II:

I'm confident you'll enjoy reading Jeff's work and listening to this podcast.

Thanks Turd

I just wanted to take a second and thank you Turd for your continued work on the site. The podcasts are great! More weekend material.

Have you seen Jim Willie's latest piece: Today's smash is all just part of the ongoing gold wars he talks about... no reason to be discouraged.

So this guy suggests that Physical metals can be confiscated via Government order. Yet goes on to say that the miners are a great investment.

So let me get this right. Gov says it needs Gold - makes law to steal all Gold from folk. Then pays the miners the going rate for the new Gold they bring to market? @$10,000 /oz?

Ermmmm. If they are willing to do away with property rights to take folks Gold, surely they will "nationalize" production too. You hold shares you get jack. You only have to look at South America

How To Make Extra Fiat

Just wanted to share with those who are in need of some extra money. Here's an easy way to make some extra money if you live near a town or city. I was never one to work for other people, but I have always been willing to take a humble task.

My 13 year old son is not old enough to work and I really did not want him to pull weeds or some such work. I am hoping to train him to be more productive so we decided to make a business out of picking up other peoples curbside junk. What we came up with is "curbside shopping" twice a week for 2 hours when the trash is put out. I looked on the internet and it's legal to do "curbside shopping" as long as you don't root through garbage cans. We just pickup whatever is beside the cans that looks sellable and in decent condition. Twice a week we head out and visit all the homes in several subdivisions. We can pass at least 1,000 homes in 2 hours. The car is ours and the gas I pay for is about $10.00 a week. It really does work for us. Although he has not sold much so far in garage sales or Craigs list, were building inventory, I would say at garage sale prices he is making about $150.00 a week. For a 13 year old putting in about 4 hours a week shopping and fixing up stuff thats pretty good. My wife has bought several items from him because they were like brand new. I help him clean every item. We focus on easy to clean or slight repairs. No big projects. The only bad experience I have had was 3 weeks ago when we picked up two machine made orientals with dog urine in them on a rainy night, the smell was horiffic and the rugs were almost to much to lift. Of course we cleaned them on the driveway with ammonia, enzimes, and vinigar. My wife helped and today they are perfect with absolutely no odor. Each is probably worth used several hundred. Last week we picked up a pressure washer somebody was throwing out. We just cleaned all the walks and drives with it and now it's tested and ready for sale. The washer just needed blown out from some clog. Works perfect and probably worth around a $100 used.. This week we picked up 2 brand new chaise lounges each worth about $75.00 that the neighbor decided he did not want after just buying them last year for $275.00. We picked up a large fiberglass fountain with a lions head spewing water several weeks ago that should be worth $150 new was $400. All the fountian needed was a new $14 dollar water pump. This is easy money folks if you are willing to go looking. My son wants to get a couple more guns with the money. Our garage is filling up for the upcoming garage sale. On school nights we limit the time out, but if you are willing to stay out the sky is the limit if you have enough houses in your area. We don't fool with large furniture. I did know a guy that all he did was pickup old furniture as long as the frame was solid he would reglue and refabric the piece. That was his specialty to make some extra fiat. Seems to be very little competition to "curbside shopping."

What's cool is this is a father / son project we both enjoy. He is learning business and how to repair items. In the last 6-7 weeks I would say he has collected about $1000.00 worth of sellable items. Each week now we both look forward to making the circuit to see what is thrown out. I wanted to share this with everyone as it might be a help to someone who needs extra money or to some father to help his son or daughter get ahead. I would say all said and done he will make between $25 and 40 per hour for his efforts not counting the car and gas. My son should make about $7-10,000 for a full year doing this. After the guns and a mini bike he wants, I hope he will add to his silver collection.

I think this business works best in middle to upper middle class neighborhoods with some discretionary income. Condos seem to work well also as they have limited space so when they buy an item they have to throw out some other item.

Maybe someone needs a way to make a little extra to buy silver. This might work for you. God bless.

That's some good info. Similar to buying storage units at auction. A friend of mine wanted to get into that. One of the agents I worked with owned a storage rental place, he said some of his auctions were going for 5 bucks... one lady bought one that had a car in it for 5 bucks... fixed up the car and sold it for 2 grand. But since those storage wars shows all came on tv, I guess there's a lot more people buying now. Also watch airports... they auction off unclaimed luggage I've heard.

Lots of ways to make extra fiat out there, a person just needs to be innovative.

Jeff Nielson lacks even a basic understanding of economics.

After reading Jeff Nielson's latest rant I must conclude that he lacks a fundamental grasp of how economics really works and what exactly CAPITAL is. The following article written by Jeff Nielson (just this week) is riddled with fantastically false notions and Keynesian-pseudo-intellectual cliché. Read it for yourself:

"In other words, by any/every definition of the word; the U.S. has become steadily more “capitalist” over the past three years. Yet with three years of “economic recovery” and three years of the West’s most-extreme version of capitalism becoming yet more extreme; the net result has been a significant overall decline in well-being – and the immediate prospect of further deterioration (as indicated by the decline in ranking)." ~ Jeff Nielson
