BankNotes – March 2024

The 2024 Annual Think Tank conference was the best one yet! The feedback from those in attendance was overwhelmingly positive:
“I really like that we are reinforcing the basic principles of IBC and structuring solutions that create the most safety and control for the client.”
“Incredible event!”
“I love the format. It is a lot to take in in two days’ time, but it is always motivating and powerful.”
“This was hands down my favorite Think Tank of the five I have attended.”

BankNotes – February 2024

Nothing in recent years has convinced me more of this fact than attempting to explain the Infinite Banking Concept (IBC) to others. When I consider the number of years it took me to finally understand it, I wonder if its simplicity is not perhaps the real source of its difficulty. It is so simple it makes no sense! But, of course, that’s not it at all, there is much more to it than that. IBC involves matters having to do with money, credit and how it flows in the entirety of our economy. Those particular elements have never been simple for
anybody.

Business Credit survey1 conducted and published in March 2016 by the Federal Reserve Banks of New York, Atlanta, Boston, Cleveland, Philadelphia, Richmond, and St. Louis reports that “cash flow” is the number one problem facing small businesses with fewer than 500 employees. At the same time a Financial Stability Report dated November 2018 by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve cites that business-sector debt relative to GDP is historically high and “debt has been growing fastest at firms with weaker earnings and higher leverage.”

BankNotes – December 2023

According To The Kauffman Index of Startup Activity1 the share of new entrepreneurs who started businesses to pursue opportunity rather than from necessity is now up more than 12 percentage points higher than in 2009 at the height of the Great Recession. This of course is a very encouraging nationwide trend and I extend my admiration to all those individuals who have ventured out into an endeavor where only about half survives the first five years in operation. Obviously, by any measure, these are certainly not great odds so I also applaud their courage and their desire to start their very own enterprise.

BankNotes – November 2023

One of the greatest awakenings we can experience happens when we recognize that our monetary systems rest entirely on our confidence. In other words, when analyzed from a purely materialistic viewpoint, our beliefs in the financial strength of the U.S. dollar and the U.S. Treasury are what actually keeps our economy propped up. Our trust in these monetary instruments sustains us.

Meet my client Dave (no, it’s not his real name).
When we met late last year, Dave was about 50 years old. He’s a successful tradesman who had built a substantial business. Dave was recently approached with an offer to buy his business, and as a result, Dave expected to have about $2,000,000 that he wanted to use to establish his own personal monetary system the way Nelson Nash teaches in his book Becoming Your Own Banker.

BankNotes – July 2023

Becoming Your Own Banker, by author R. Nelson Nash is an extraordinary book. And yet, it’s not actually a book as much as it is a book-let. A mere one hundred and seven pages in its entirety, it dispenses wisdom and logic of a kind that only an individual who has been educated in the Austrian School tradition could have written. Neither the brevity of its treatment nor its plain language takes away from the fact that it contains information of great intellectual and financial depth. What has become apparent since its initial writing is that the power of its message motivates its readers to read it not just once, but over and over again. With each reading, new insights are ascertained. Readers are moved to share its wisdom.
