Out With The Old, In With The Jackass

246

Another holiday weekend is upon us so, as per tradition, we have another installment of a TFMR podcast with The Golden Jackass himself, Jim Willie.

Three main topics are discussed over the course of this 100+ minute discussion. The first 40 minutes deals with The Middle East, particularly Syria and Turkey. The next 20 minutes are spent discussing the recent "rate hike" by the Federal Reserve and the final segment primarily focuses upon falling crude oil prices and the impact on derivatives, interest rates and geo-politics.

You've got all weekend to digest this information so please make the time to give this a thorough listen. As usual, if you'd like to go into greater depth, we encourage you to consider a subscription to The Jackass' newsletter service, The Hat Trick Letter. There is no doubt that 2016 is going to be a wildly unpredictable and consequential year. Only quality analysis from trusted sources will help you to see your way through it.

Happy New Year to all!

TF

Lots of visitors this holiday weekend

Therefore, let's try to keep this thread on-topic as much as possible in order to show everyone what this site is all about. Let's keep the discussion focused upon the precious metals and economics. Geo-politics will also come into play in 2016 but, by focusing the discussion, we can remind ourselves that we're all in this together, seeking to survive The End of The Great Keynesian Experiment.
