Wednesday (Thursday) Conversation - James Kunstler


Jim Kunstler is someone I've admired from afar for several years so it was a great thrill when I was able to first connect with him in 2023. Jim returns today to provide his unique perspective on current events and I strongly urge you to carve out some time to listen to this podcast.

In case you don't know, Jim is a renowned author, having written 20 books on a wide range of subject matter. He's also an analyst and blogger who maintains his own site and substack. Here are the links:

Regarding his twenty books and given the current situation, I asked Jim to recommend just one for everyone here at TFMR. He suggested "The Long Emergency", which he wrote in 2005. If you'd like to obtain a copy, here's an Amazon link:

I asked Jim to return to TFMR so that we could get his thoughts on everything from monetary policy, politics, the Weimar Republic, the French Revolution and the Ukraine War. Is that a lot to cram into just 35 minutes? Yes. So listen close and pay attention. You'll be happy you did.
