All smaller weight pieces are priced higher. The same if you were to purchase a 500ml bottle of soda vs. a 2 Litre bottle. The unit cost is always higher on the smaller weights & sizes.That is simply the nature of the beast when acquiring anything. Check it out the next time you visit your local supermarket.
Right, so why buy 500ml when you get more "bang for the buck" with a larger bottle if your goal is to stockpile as much soda as you can?
Value is measured by more metrics than price alone.
No doubt. But if you can get the more gold from Joe than you can from Peter for the same price, then price has become a very
important factor, if not the only
For one, By owning Karatbars, one is not required to liquidate an entire ounce of gold if one needs only a few hundred dollars.
If one needs a few hundred dollars, liquidating gold (which you claim will only go up in value) is dumb to begin with.
Karatbars can be exchanged at any merchant / retailer, or business that chooses to do so, ...as well as in a number of different ways.
You've said that before, but the problem is that "any" can also mean zero. Of the people I called, only one offered to consider
exchanging Karatbars for money; the others just refused. Being able to quickly and efficiently liquidate Karatbars is something which you've touted as an advantage. You've been telling us for how long that "soon
" and "anyday now
" a massive list of establishments which will accept Karatbars directly in exchange for goods and services will be posted. Where's that list?
The facts are simple. Can I pay for a meal with Karatbars? No
. Can I pay for a car with Karatbars? No
. Can I pay my doctor with Karatars? No
. And it doesn't look like I will be able to in the near future either. Face it - physical gold is not practical as an everyday medium of exchange. Couple that with basically no quick and efficient way to liquidate physical holdings, and Karatbars are, to put it bluntly, useless
YOU can't do it with Karatbars, simply because YOU don't own any Karatbars with which to do it.
That's true - but the people I was speaking to didn't know that. In fact they didn't even know what Karatbars were, despite the fact that they bought gold and were perfectly willing to give me money, on the spot, for bullion coins and bars.
I've already pointed out many in previous conversations and threads about this. Please refer to those.
No. All you've done is post silly rhymes, easily debunkable bullshit that others wrote and crappy youtube videos.
I prefer a to acquire MY gold, from the Karatbars system. By availing myself of what Karatbars has to offer, I am empowered to acquire far more gold, than I could ever purchase from my own pocket at some best just over spot gold seller.BULLSHIT
. Let's say you can only afford to buy a one gram gold bar per month. With Karatbars, it would take you 32 months to get an ounce of gold. If you saved that money instead then in 32 months you'd have saved enough to buy almost twice the gold... So you aren't empowered to acquire far more gold. You're duped into buying far less.
And frankly, if you can't afford to buy an ounce of gold outright, perhaps gold isn't for you.
What I am getting are smaller, transaction friendly weights of 999.9 pure 24KT LBMA GDL gold, not tiny parts of gold emcased in plastic.
First of all is a one gram gold bar containing one gram of "999.9 pure 24Kt LBMA GLD" gold not a tiny bit of gold encased in plastic? I submit that one gram of any metal qualifies as a tiny bit, and considering that the plastic volume is many times than of the gold, and surrounds it (for "protection") the fact of the matter is that a gold bar is, indeed, a tiny bit of gold encased in plastic.
Also, it seems that you are confused. A gold bar isn't GDL. GDL gold comes in bars of specific dimensions that are 350
ounces each of 999.5 gold. Perhaps the refinery producing Karatbars has LBMA GDL certification, but don't delude yourself that a gold bar is GDL. It is, most assuredly, not. See more at Wikipedia
if you want to educate yourself.
When you say "pyramid" are you refering to an ancient artifact in Egypt?
...or are you refering to the strongest, soundest, structure known to the architect?
Sorry no. This is actually a bogus claim that you would be hard pressed to justify. The pyramid has a number of important structural properties but it's hardly the strongest or the soundest structure. Oh, and please don't bother copy-pasting bullshit you find on the Internet but don't understand. We'll know.
...or perhaps you are refering to the US system of social security?
Nope. I'd also point out that that term doesn't quite describe the abomination that is social security if for no other reason that a critical component of a Ponzi scheme is that the fact that money from new investors is used to pay old investors is obscured. That's not the case with social security. But let's not get sidetracked here, shall we?
As for the shape of my business organization, ...most any business entity is structured in the same fashion.
Is it now? You think that most businesses are structured using multi-level marketing techniques to recruit fools who will then recruit still more fools? That's interesting.
My friend, colleague, and fellow Karatbars affiliate was able to dispense with this myth when he testified before Congress back in 1972. The end result was Congress basically said to him "Thank You very much. We're sorry for wasting your time" Now if Congress could figure it out, ...what does that say about those who have yet to discover this for themselves? It's one thing to take the 'Are you smarter than a 6th grader" challenge and come up short, ...but how does one live down coming up short against Congress?
Uhm... you seem to think that Congress is some mythical, inerrant institution. I've got news for you. But, let's not go there; there are other questions first.
Does this "friend, colleague and fellow Karatabars affiliate" have, you know, a name? Or is he like the mythical "guy a friend of mine heard about through her sister, who met him at her best friend's cousin's boyfriend's brother's wedding"?
Is his testimony on the record? Can we read the transcripts of said testimony?
And, perhaps most importantly, did he testify specifically in connection with Karatars back in 1972, or something else? Because you know... we're talking about Karatbars here.
