XSVCash - A great way to make money online!
Written by Wang Zen   
Sunday, 02 December 2007

"XSVCash" is a good way to make money online. It is similar to CashCrate and other websites that pay you for taking surveys, downloading and trying software and providing personal information.  Pronounced "Excessive Cash" it is indeed a way to make some good money online. The way it works is Advertisers need ways to expose their products to the public. By offering surveys they are able to advertise their campaigns and get information from the public directly. Unlike a billboard on a highway, they are able to get measurable information from consumers and will gladly pay for that information.

It is free to fill out surveys. Payments range from $1-$20. You also get a $3 bonus simply for signing up.

The way to do this is:

  1. Click here to register on XSVCash.
  2. Choose an offer to complete.
  3. Complete the offer with the requirement stated on the offer. If it says complete a survey, then fill it out completely. If it says "sign up with valid information" then do so.
  4. After completing the offer, click the "Done" button.
  5. XSVCash will then verify that you comppleted the offer. Once that is done you will be paid via Paypal. If you do not want to be paid by Paypal, then send the administrators a request to be paid via check.

That's it! You've made some real money! They pay monthly, so if you start now you can expect a check from XSVCash next month!

Some things to note:

  • You will get $3 simply for signing up.
  • There is a referral bonus, meaning you will receive a percentage of what the people you sign-up make. Don't worry, they won't receive less because of that. XSVCash pays your percentage on top of what your referral makes.
  • Most offers are for the US, but there are some offers for people in the UK, with more international offers planned.
  • You can still join if you are from another country. The referral bonus is a way for people from other countries to make money - simply by referring US users to signup.
  • $15 is th eminimum payout that you must reach before XSV Cash will pay out. If you do not reach that limit the amount will rollover till next month.
  • You refer people through your referral link. You will receive that once you sign up for an XSVCash account. For instance, my referral link is: http://xsvcash.com/cgi-bin/gpte.cgi?page=index&referrer=wangzen
  • There are 5 levels of referral percentages: 20% - 10% - 5% - 3% - 1%. This means that you make 20% from the people YOU refer, and 10% from their referrals, then 5% from their referrals referrals - and so on down to 1% at the fifth level.  This is one of the factors that makes XSVCash  one of the best ways to make money online. It is residual income, and eventually you can make good money not just by your own efforts, but from the efforts of others. I highly recommend XSVCash .

Who this is great for:

  • Stay at home moms
  • Stay at home dads
  • Anyone who wants to build a viable business of making money online that is free to join, and requires only a little effort.

 

 

 

 
Why investing in gold is better than investing in a house, an example
Written by Wang Zen   
Friday, 12 October 2007
Back in January of 1972, my parents bought a 4 bedroom, 2 bath house in Lakewood Coloradoo for $26,000. The price of gold at the time was $45/ounce. It would have taken 577 ounces of gold to buy that house. Today, the house is worth around $300,000. 577 ounces of gold at the current price of $749 is worth $432,173.  It could buy my parent's house and have over 130,000 left over. The point is that gold retains its value no matter what the currency is doing - inflating, deflating.
 
Interesting article on our money system as Ponzi Scheme

 Here's an excerpt:

"Panic struck on Wall Street, as the Dow Jones Industrial Average plunged a thousand points between July and August, and commentators warned of a 1929-style crash. To prevent that dire result, the U.S. Federal Reserve, along with the central banks of Europe, Canada, Australia and Japan, extended a 315 billion dollar lifeline to troubled banks and investment firms. The hemorrhage stopped, the markets turned around, and investors breathed a sigh of relief. All was well again in Stepfordville. Or was it? And if it was, at what cost? Three hundred billion dollars is about a third of the total paid by U.S. taxpayers in personal income taxes annually. A mere $188 billion would have been enough to repair all of the 74,000 U.S. bridges known to be defective, preventing another disaster like that in Minneapolis in July. But the central banks' $300 billion was poured instead into the black hole of rescuing the very banks and hedge funds blamed for the "liquidity" crisis (the dried up well of investment money), encouraging loan sharks and speculators in their profligate ways."

 

I think it's a pretty good primer on the reasoning behind what happened with the sub-prime crisis, and how the "solution" was not really a solution at all, but a band-aid for the banks. It basically sent a lot of cheap money into the system, throwing the dollar off a cliff.  

Frankly, homeownership is not for everyone. A house is not an investment, it's also not an asset. It's a place to live. It is an item that you have to send money into in order to maintain it. If you think it's an asset, stop making payments and see who actually owns your house. If you can't make maintain your house, then do the alternative: rent. Let someone else maintain it.

I think a second house can be an investment, though, and has advantages because you typically use leverage (loans) in order to purchase one. But for the people who bought a home with these outlandish loan instruments such as ARMs are finding out that it wasn't an investment - it was a gamble. So they default because the housing bubble has burst and ARMs reset, making their houses cheaper than their loans, which then threw the lenders into the toilet, the real owners or the houses. 

It's a circle of deceit, I tell ya'!
