Gateway to Financial Freedom: Twelve (12) Audio Casette Tapes and Guidebook in Clamshell Case

By Anderson, Keith

USA: Global Prosperity Marketing Group / Trust Concepts Co.. Hardcover. Author "has been involved in constitutional study, freedom, sovereignty, foreign trusts and transition tools for eighteen years. He founded: Constitutional Patriots Association, Constitutional Legal Services, The Freedom Guide, The Super Legal Defense Fund, and 85% of the Irwin Schiff Freedom League (California)." - page 2. White clamshell case includes all twelve audio casette tapes and accompanying guidebook. Our research into Mr. Anderson suggests that people who followed his advice ended up in hot water. If true, this set will serve as an excellent case study of a scheme novice investors should avoid like the plague. Probably the first clue to this is that, according to the back cover, the material in this presentation was licensed from a company called Trust Concepts. What could possibly go wrong with a company named like that? Tape titles include: Declaration of Independence - Trial by Jury, Jurisdictions - United States defined - IRS, Solutions for Changing Jurisdictions, Solutions for Getting Out of Debt, Transition Tools and Fourteenth Amendment, Introduction to Foreign Trusts, Points & Authorities, Biblical Historical Reference, Hidden Agenda - Congressional Research (Norman Dodd). Undated but probably circa 1997. Unmarked with moderate wear. . Very Good. 1997. First Edition.

Scientific American November (Nov.) 1929 Volume 141 Number 5 - Featuring Timeless Great Depression Advertising Fail

By Munn, Orson D.: Editor

New York: Scientific American Publishing Company. Paperback. Lucky Strike cigarette ad on back cover provides a truly classic and timeless example of a mis-timed advertisement. Consider that the great Wall St. stock market crash of 1929 occurred mere days before this issue hit the newsstands. Beneath the caption "An Ancient Prejudice has been removed" appears a clenched fist labeled as "American Intelligence" breaking a heavy chain. Top left a paranoid miser stacks his gold by candlelight. Top right a wealthy couple visits their palatial bank. Text beneath miser reads "Hoarding gold with the fanatical zeal of the miser has vanished. American Intelligence sponsors thousands of banking institutions to which the individual (i.e. the wealthy couple) safely entrusts his wealth." The message is clear. Readers should put their trust (and money) in the banks, and shun gold. This issue was likely printed just as the Great Crash occurred, causing countless financial institutions to go under - and destroying even more individual fortunes. (The ad goes on to claim that cigarettes have similarly overcome the prejudice against them.) A truly stunning work which deserves to be preserved and reflected upon in this age of limitless fiat currency printing. Average wear with three-inch crease to lower corner of back cover. Suitably framed and mounted, this ad will make a superlative office display for any precious metals executive. . Fair. 1929. First Edition.
