TFMR Podcast #43 - Jim Willie Returns


If you can spare the time, you'd better give this a listen.

Back on Friday, Jim published what he called "one of the most important articles he'd ever written". If you haven't yet, you should read it now. It can be found here:

Jim and I felt that his observations and conclusions were so important and so timely that we needed to record this follow-up podcast as soon as possible. It worked out that we were able to speak on Monday afternoon.

I'm confident that you'll enjoy this informative and compelling podcast.

The US Dollar

60% of global trade is done in US Dollars.

The US needs to create events to make it look like there really is competition out there. Nothing like a few communist countries like China and a crippled Russia to add to the drama.

The media still talks GDP - who cares? Talk GNP. Oh wait, governments do track this data ......anymore.

It's the US military that ensures the Baltic Dry Index still exists.

Rude and ill-mannered or what? I'm not sure how you put up with it sometimes.

Amazing how a $1 drop in silver brings the ass-hats out.

Actually it is quite improved

The connection drops are much shorter and fewer than in the past.

Cup half full type of thing....

Coming up on a year as a subscriber to JW's Hat Trick letter...

Most people forecast (and all are wrong)...JW tells you what is happening and you can draw your own conclusions.

Historically it seems that the smartest people are just crazy enough that most people don't believe them.

Wasted life

Life is fantastic and in the cosmic scheme of things I am here for less than the blink of an eye.

As XTY said - it is in the contract - we all go to sleep.

I may get ran over by a car this week, or be diagnosed with cancer or..........

But HERE and NOW everything is just was last week and last year and my previous 49 years.

I am just along for the ride - keep your hands inside the vehicle at all times!

Today is a good day to die, as are all days. One day will be such a good day. I really care not when. It is not important.

To live deep and suck the marrow out of life and not when I come to die, realize that I had not lived. (Walden; why I went to the woods).

What is important is the gift of life; one must Edit: (w)ring every ounce of it before the aforementioned blink. Living long in fear everyday is not my idea of a good plan. More important to live right than concentrate on the long slow death.

For what IS freedom other than freedom of spirit....

No matter how long I live or what happens on this blink...I will always be a free man. So you see, there is really nothing at all to worry about. Now lets get busy living and playing. PS it helps to play with a bag of Gold and Silver tucked to one side.
