A2A with Chris Martenson of PeakProsperity.com


Maybe it's just me but it seems that these A2As just keep getting more and more informative. This week's guest was Chris Martenson and, boy, did he ever turn out to be a great guest. You really need to listen to this podcast.

Thankfully, Chris was very generous with his time. In this 50-minute webinar, Chris addresses such topics as:

  • Why economic change/collapse is coming and when it might be expected
  • What countries will suffer most
  • What concerns him most at present
  • Why and what type of precious metal he owns
  • His most important advice

But wait, there's more! So much more, in fact, that I urge you to listen to this entire recording. Break it up into segments or do it over the weekend. It doesn't matter how you do it, just do it.

I always liked CM...

I listen to these while working. Makes the $10 a month VERY worth it. Would love to hear more A2As on topics diverging a bit from gold and silver.

5th for the Hat Trick

5th for a top tenner. I got a NY close Ag 20.12, sensing lift off. A2A interviews are informative, so keep up the good work, and thanks Chris. Some may not send in questions, but enjoy much the interviews.

Speaking of 5th, dig this. My 5th grader did a report on "The Silver State" Nevada, and today he is going to a county wide fair type presentation, and he ask to take a silver dollar, and I put it in a clear small plastic bag with a one dollar bill, and drilled him.

"This is a silver one dollar coin, has one dollar on it, and is made by our government. This is a one dollar bill, has one dollar on it, and is made by our government. They are not the same thing. One is a lie, guess which one. The one dollar bill is a lie because our constitution says that money is gold and silver. The government prints paper dollar to steal from the people through inflation".

Now, that is heavy for a 5th grader, granted, but only wish I could see the jaws drop from the totalitarians in charge of the fair. LMAO!!!!!

Excellent A2A gents..

Having never knowingly read or heard anything from CM before, he came across as a genuine dude who thinks for himself.

... andTurd does an incredible job at managing the mood, pace, context, etc of these interviews, and makes them fun to listen to!

CM is not an economist, as he states in his bio, but most all of his objective data gathering and analysis relates to economic factors. CM has very refreshingly factual perspective on the 'economy' compared to the "economist" windbags who put on a necktie and wander the CNBS/RT/Bloomberg circuit theorizing sweet nothings and pumping their latest book.

As Silver and Gold complete our current Monetary cycle in the days and weeks ahead, this will trump all 'market' and 'economic' trends and dynamics. And while CM didn't necessarily describe things in this context,... he did provide a lot of factual and relevant information about economic factors that are reaching sort of a "change or cease" point. Which fits perfectly with "what time it is" Monetarily speaking. Excellent A2A!

One of the best A2A guests. Chris did a great job framing the 'big picture', from which the rational outcomes are easily deduced. Love love the practical ideas and steps.

Great work Turd and Chris. Your contributions to preparing and sustaining this community will be recorded for future generations.

I was already a big fan of CM and this is your best podcast to date. CM is a very wise and articulate man, plus with your great interviewing skills, I really enjoyed listening to this.

Thanks again for putting together this community. You are doing a great job.
