Thursday Conversation - John Rubino

48

What a pleasure to bring in John Rubino for a Thursday Conversation. You're definitely going to want to carve out some time for this podcast.

John is a renowned author of several books as well as the publisher of the terrific website Dollar Collapse. He's an expert in the field of sound money and precious metals so it was great to get his opinion on:

  • Where we stand as we close the decade. Are fiat currencies collapsing and what options are available to central banks and governments as they attempt to manage the impending crisis?
  • What does John expect from the precious metals in 2020 and how does seasonality of pricing impact his forecast?
  • How do the mining shares fit into the investment equation and what does John expect in 2020?

We also re-introduce "the final four" after a long absence so please be sure to give this podcast a listen all the way through the end.

Thanks again to John for his time today and please be sure to add Dollar Collapse to your favorites list.

There must be “WAR+” to impart gratitude .

Big WAR will restore hope to the surviving ruined – "I've lost near all, but at least I'm still alive, and have this gold. Everything will be "biddable," and it will be wild.

JPM jumping on the "pledged gold" train

JPM jumping on the "pledged gold" train

Maybe I'm the only one, and my spidy senses are just over-reacting to a sudden change in the weather.

But this sure has the look and feel of bullion banks of "circling wagons," running low on ammunition while desperately trying to fight off an epic CDG short squeeze.

Is 1480 where they lose their scalps, and the next leg up begins?

Norks playing with nukes again

All the Dow points that were gained and the PM dollars that were lost over the repeated tweets of Norks bowing to Trump's demands was fake news like everything else Trump claims he's done for America.
