You probably already know The United States is in huge financial debt…
Yet most people don't realize how bad the problem really is… and how quickly we're heading for a massive financial collapse…
EVG Research team here, and today we're going to take a hard look at the naked truth about America's huge financial problems.
Yet as we expose the root cause of the economic woes, you'll also discover the surprising hero that could put America back on top.
In fact, this new technology is already making a lot of everyday people extremely rich.
America's Biggest Problem
Ask 10 economists about America's biggest problem and you'll likely get 10 different answers.
Some will say it's our government's debt and out-of-control spending.
Other's will point to lack of jobs. Some will claim a low minimum wage is holding us back. Still others will put the blame on crippling health care costs, over-regulation or a host of other legitimate threats to America's economic health.
But perhaps the biggest threat of all to our national well-being is our inability to produce anything the rest of the world wants anymore.
Let me explain.
The U.S. is Currently Suffering a
Massive Trade Deficit
That means we import more commodities and manufactured goods than we export. History and economics tell us that such situations are not sustainable.
And they never end well.
The U.S. has gotten away with this imbalance for so long for one simple reason.
The U.S. Dollar is the world's reserve currency.
It's had that status since 1948 as part of the post WWII reconstruction plan.
I don't want to take us too far off track, but please try to follow along here. Because understanding these basic facts is the only way you can make wise investment choices.
Here's why being the world's reserve currency is so important. The U.S. never has to convert its money to buy goods abroad.
Other countries have to first convert their currency into U.S. Dollars if they want to buy goods or services in the world marketplace.
But when we buy stuff from them, they have to accept our money straight up.
This simple fact gives the U.S. a huge – and unfair – advantage over every other country in the world.
America's Unfair Advantage
You see, we can just print more money any time we need it. Other countries simply have to accept it, because it's the reserve currency.
It's not a power to abuse, and any responsible economist will tell you it's sheer suicide if this special power is overused.
Which is why our central bank – the Federal Reserve – has never abused that power in the past.
At least until the last 5 years.
Ever since the first “quantitative easing” program known as QE, the Fed has basically strapped a turbo booster on their money printing machine and flooded our economy with over $3.8 trillion new greenbacks.
It's almost like playing with monopoly money. And the new dollars are worth about as much.
Rest assured, this doesn't make other countries happy. They know they are receiving diluted money for goods they export to us.
And what sane foreign country wants to buy our Treasury bonds when they know it's only backed up with this fresh, new “funny money?”
At this point, however, there's nothing these other nations can do about it.
At least not yet.
This Is Where Things Get Scary…
Several leading economists are sounding the alarm that the U.S. Dollar may eventually lose its reserve currency status.
Some predict it will happen in the next 5 years.
Several nations have already forged deals to bypass the U.S. Dollar when trading oil amongst themselves. And they'd love nothing more than to dethrone the mighty Dollar's reserve currency status.
Most Americans have no idea what kind of devastation that would bring upon America.
The cost of everything would go up instantly. Two, three, even four hundred percent inflation would shock us like a giant tsunami.
A gallon of milk could cost $10. A pound of coffee would likely soar over $25. Even a simple pair of shoes for your child could zoom past the $200 mark.
The only reason such inflation hasn't already occurred is because we don't have to exchange our money to purchase our imports.
There Is A Way to Stop the Madness
The cure for all this goes back to that trade deficit situation.
If America could once again become a net EXPORTER of goods, it could completely change the game.
First of all, it would restore faith in the strength of the U.S.Dollar among the nations of the world.
They would be happy to keep the U.S. dollar as the reserve currency instead of trying to wrestle that privilege away from us.
And the benefits at home would also be enormous.
We could pay off our national debt.
Unemployment numbers would plummet.
Budget surpluses would soar.
U.S. currency could actually become “sound money” again.
Now, none of this would happen overnight, of course.
But it can happen. It just needs a catalyst to kick start the process.
These New, Emerging Technologies Are Not Quite Ready…
Visionaries have already cited a number of industries that could fill that role and make America great again with exportable goods.
In a May 2014 article, Forbes magazine cited bright futures for emerging industries like 3D printing. Solar power technologies. Electric cars.
Those all have incredible potential. But it'll likely take decades before they're mature enough to rescue a crumbling national economy like ours.
We need something in the meantime that can save the sinking ship. Something that can do the job right here, right now.
Because “later” could be too late.
Interestingly enough, there is one industry which already has the infrastructure in place to do that kind of rescue job starting today.
In fact, experts say this particular industry has the power to stop the bleeding of trillions in government red ink … and put us solidly “in the black” in as little as 10 years.
America's Unlikely Hero Unmasked
This unlikely hero for American prosperity is none other than the often-vilified energy industry.
Specifically, we're talking about oil and gas producers.
So if you're not averse to investing in America's economic well-being, there's a lot of money to be made in the next 30 years or so.
The New Technologies Being Used
In This Old Industry Are Making
a Lot of Ordinary People Very Rich
You probably already know America is experiencing an oil boom…
And it's creating 38 new millionaires every week in North Dakota alone.
What you may not know is how quickly it's weaning us off foreign oil sources.
Last year, U.S. crude imports fell by 11%, even though national oil consumption grew.
In fact, the U.S. Energy Information Administration reports the U.S. is already producing 8 million barrels of oil per day. That's more than every individual OPEC member except Saudi Arabia.
And it positions the United States to become a net exporter of oil in the coming decades.
That single fact foreshadows the role the oil and gas industry could have in rescuing The United States from total financial collapse.
Why This Is Important for Individual Investors
This is terrific news for individual investors like you and me.
You see, lawmakers like to reward investment activity that benefits the common good of the nation.
That's why current tax laws give substantial incentives to oil and gas investors.
Policy makers are just starting to recognize the important role new oil and gas technology could play in creating a sustained economic turnaround.
They understand America needs the oil industry to succeed.
So look for hefty tax breaks to continue for those who take on the risk and produce the coveted crude.
It means even a small investment today could pay off huge down the road.
After all, this is one of the few booms in the history of America where everyday folks — farmers, teachers, mechanics, you name it — are becoming millionaires.
The good news is you don't have to own a piece of oil-rich land in North Dakota or Texas to make thousands of dollars from this oil boom.
You can likely ride the wave of success regardless of where you live…
That leaves just one question.
What's the Best Way to Cash In?
If you want to strike it rich in the emerging American oil boom, most traditional investment advisors will give you two choices.
They say you can play it safe and buy stock in the major oils companies like Exxon or Chevron.
Or you could try to speculate and find a junior company that's ready to break out … load up on their stocks … and keep your fingers crossed.
The problem with either of those options is they are 3rd tier investments. You still take on all the potential risk inherent in oil & gas investing, but you give up the rewards, and let the primary and secondary investors capitalize on all the huge tax incentives.
That's not wise investing. You should get more reward than just a “potential” capital appreciation.
Which is why wealthy investors rarely invest in energy by buying stocks. They know there are much more lucrative plays. So they go straight to the source.
Or at least as close as they can.
3 Different Ways to Invest
You see, with any kind of investing, there are basically three different levels.
There are primary investments, which is when you own a company. Then there are secondary investments when you become an active or passive partner in an existing business. Finally there are the 3rd tier investments like stocks.
Most of the money is made at the first and second levels. This is also where most of the tax incentives live.
Third level investors usually just get the leftover crumbs. And almost no tax incentives. That's why wealthy investors avoid them.
First tier investments, however, are rather costly. But if you have the capital, they can be extremely lucrative.
Imagine you start a company that drills oil wells, and you strike it rich. You don't have to share that with anyone. It's 100% your profit. And you get such huge tax breaks you don't even have to share much of your bounty with Uncle Sam.
Starting a primary oil and gas company has made a lot of people extremely rich over the years.
Unfortunately, its an expensive endeavor. You have to buy or lease all the equipment, hire geologists to find the right spots and secure land leases. Then you need a team of lawyers to make sure you are following all the laws and to hammer out royalty agreements.
Frankly, it's a big money pit at first, because you'll invest tens of millions of dollars before you ever drill a hole in the ground.
And then when you're finally ready to start operations, you'll need another $10,000,000 just to drill a single well.
That's where secondary investors come in.
Smaller drilling companies offer individual investors a chance to partner with them by bankrolling a new drilling project.
This is the investment “sweet spot” where you'll find most wealthy investors hanging out.
Here's How it Works
Meet Eric. He's is an internet entrepreneur who struck it rich. He has 10 million dollars cash sitting in the bank and he wants to invest in oil and gas, so he partners with a company called Oil Drillers Inc.
Eric doesn't like to get his hands dirty, so he just puts up the $10 million cash and becomes a general partner.
Oil Drillers Inc. uses Eric's money to start drilling the wells. Once they start producing, the money starts flowing too.
Eric starts getting checks every month for his investment. How much? In this case, Eric gets a monthly check for $150,000. That's within the typical 12-20% annual return.
He can use that monthly cash flow however he wants. He can spend it. Save it.
Or he can turn around and start investing his proceeds into more oil and gas. Or some other lucrative cash flow asset like apartment complexes.
Plus, he gets huge tax write offs. Especially in the first year.
This is how wealthy investors accelerate their passive income streams.
After 5 year's of cashing in those monthly $150,000 checks, Eric receives a notice while vacationing with his family in Aruba.
Oil Driller's Inc. has decided to sell this oil well to another firm. The selling price is twice the original cost of starting the project.
So in the divestment, Eric gets his entire $10 million back, plus another $10 million on top.
Remember, that's in addition to all the monthly royalty checks he already received.
And he never had to get his hands dirty. He just cashed the checks.
Now you know how the rich keep getting richer.
What's In It For Me?
Of course, unless you have $10,000,000 lying around (the typical cost of a new drilling project), you can't do what Eric did.
Oil and gas companies recognize this and typically break these drilling projects into smaller individual investing units. This allows secondary investors to get in on the action with a minimum investment of $100,000.
But it's still out of reach for many intermediate investors who'd like to get in on this cash-gushing industry.
Here's some good news. We recently found a company that further chunks out each investing unit into tenths, enabling even small investors to join the party with a $10,000 minimum investment.
It should be clear by now that secondary investing in oil and gas is not suitable for everyone. There are some minimal income requirements you must meet. And if this is your first investment, it may not be the best place to start.
But for everyone else, it could be the perfect bonanza.
Because a $10k investment is much more manageable for a most people. Yet it could still net you hundreds of dollars each month in extra cash flow and tax savings. Plus you'll have the potential doubling of your money during divestment.
Reinvest those proceeds in other cash flow assets (like the ones we explore in The Elevation Group) … and you've found one of the quickest and smartest ways to zoom past middle class mediocrity and join the investing elite.
This is the simple system ultra-wealthy investors use to proactively assure their own financial freedom.
Now you can copy their success.
