Your Resident Blogger is Now Employed (What does gold have to do with libertarianism anyway?)

It's really so exciting and flattering when I was contacted to meet for a career opportunity related to libertarianism. I was lucky enough to have been able to pass several job interviews before that but had to turn them down due to different reasons (distance, wage, boring work, etc.). Buti na lang matigas ang ulo ko (it's a good thing I'm stubborn). I didn't settle.

Is it something you love to do? Is it something you believe in? Some people say these are some qualities that will lead to a successful and fulfilling career.

Yes, I love the work that I will be doing. Aside from making sure that the operations of our company are all going well, my task is to write about libertarianism, Austrian school of economics, Ron Paul, monetary freedom, and many other things that I have been writing about here in this blog: principles that I have learned to love and things that I am very much passionate about.

Yes, I believe in our company and what we do. We are involved in trading and storing precious metals like gold or silver. Many people have asked me, "What does gold have to do with libertarianism or Ron Paul?" It goes to show how very little people know about the truths on the current financial system and  our monetary policy. And I believe that what we are doing in our company contributes in making people aware about these things.

In the US, Ron Paul has been a strong proponent of restoring the gold standard and auditing/abolishing the Federal Reserve. He even recommends competing currencies, something that Hayek also advocated. In the European Parliament, Nigel Farage has been warning against artificial interest rates, printing of fiat currency, and the inevitable collapse of the Euro. Most of the time no one listens to them. Many times, people even laughed at them and discredited their philosophy. But as more and more of their predictions come true, people are starting to wake up and libertarians are definitely growing in number.

Here are several articles I've written before on gold, monetary policy, fiat currency, etc:

Yes, libertarianism has a lot to do with gold and precious metals. Monetary freedom is one of our biggest advocacies. Historically, economic law and the market has always dictated that gold has the perfect qualities to become currency or legal tender.  Even though most people understand that gold is a "hedge against inflation," it's quite obvious that they know very little about what really causes inflation and what really gives value to our current money which is merely paper fiat currency.

I believe in what our company does. I am very excited and optimistic about the future.

"The gold standard alone makes the determination of money's purchasing power independent of the ambitions and machinations of governments, of dictators, of political parties, and of pressure groups." - Ludwig Von Mises
