U.S. Money Reserve Is The Top Home To Gold Coins


Philip N. Diehl became the President of U.S. Money Reserve after having run the U.S. Mint as its Director. Needless to say, Diehl has long proved he is an expert in the world of coins. On the EPN podcast channel, Diehl discussed gold coin investing. In addition to discussing his biography at length, Diehl revealed by investing in gold coins is so popular among so many.

Following the direction of others guides the decisions of people interested in investing their money. News reports about possible declines in the stock market along with the potential devaluation of currencies lead many who seek alternative investment strategies. Gold remains a solid option many explore. Some have put tremendous amounts of capital into gold vehicles. These speculators are not alone. Diehl points out banks and world governments are buying up a lot of gold. The “average person” with a small amount of capital to invest sees these movements and feels they are wise to mimic.

One thing is worth noting here. Regardless of the motivation behind an investment strategy, that strategy has to be a wise approach. Philip Diehl does present numerous reasons why gold coins are smart acquisitions. For one, coins are legal tender provided they are minted by a legitimate entity. The bulk of the coins sold by U.S. Money Reserve are made by the United States Mint. It goes without saying this would indicate the gold coins are definitely legitimate.

Sadly, a number of investors have been duped by counterfeiters. It is easier to fool someone with bars and bullion. Testing the purity level is the only way to determine the legitimacy of those assets. With legal tender, ascertaining whether or not the items or real requires very little effort.

The entire interview with Diehl is very enlightening. All those thinking about putting some money in gold coins should listen to the recording.

Presidente of Banco BMG, Ricardo Guimaraes on the Importance of Ivy League MBA Programs


Just recently, Forbes Magazine listed the top ten MBA programs in the United States. These programs are all well-known, Ivy League programs with excellent reputations. However, they are all rather pricey and the course of study isn’t easy at any of them, In fact, all of them have very low graduation rates.

For example, out of every group of 100 students that enter Stanford’s MBA program, only seven eventually graduate with their degree. The same is true of only 12 students out of every 100 students that study at Harvard Business School.

Some schools have a higher graduation rate like the Yale School of Management, (where 24 out of every 100 students graduate), and the Tuck School of Business, (where 22 out of every 100 students graduate). However, these are all still extremely low numbers when you really think about it; and it gives you some clue into just how exclusive a club you join when you get an MBA degree from a top university.

In addition, currently, the cheapest MBA program is at the Haas School of Business for $110,000 per year; and the most expensive program is at Harvard Business School for $139,000 per year. Because of this, going for your MBA isn’t something you should take lightly.

Fortunately though, most students understand that the benefits of obtaining your MBA can only be measured over a lifetime.

Though you can work your way up to a management role with your degree in business administration and your work experience; this will typically take decades. Most people that are able to do this have been surrounded by business, management and finance most of their childhood and adult lives.

For example, Ricardo Guimaraes was born into a business family lineage. His father owned a mining company and his grandfather founded a large bank and other businesses. He immediately entered the family businesses after completing his education and after being surrounded by these complex businesses his whole life. However, this is a unique situation and even Guimaraes recommends that most people who are interested in a top-level business career before the age of 50 or 60 should get an MBA from the best school they can afford.

According to Forbes Magazine, the top programs in the USA are:

1. Stanford Business School
2. Harvard Business School
3. The Booth School of Business
4. The Wharton School of Business
5. The Haas School of Business
6. The Tuck School of Business
7. The Yale School of Management
8. The Kellogg School of Management
9. Columbia Business School, and
10. The Leonard N. Stern School of Business
