We sat down with Andrew Schiff of EuroPacific Capital. Andrew and his brother Peter have built an alternative investment powerhouse. Together, they have written books and predicted much of the current worldwide economic depression. Andrew believes that around 30 percent of your portfolio should be held in cash, not the paper variety, but rather gold and silver. He's encouraging investors to protect themselves against the inevitable collapse of the dollar and fiat currencies around the globe. 

In addition, he really likes foreign high yield dividend stocks. This gives you the ability to participate in a growing company that is sharing its profits with the owners/shareholders, partially insulates the stock against future market disruptions and allows you protection against a declining dollar. Of course nothing is surefire, but the dollar's downward trend since 1971 has been continuous and there's very little reason to believe that it won't continue. While the buck has shown some strength recently, this is in large part due to the Euro's weakness. Eventually Schiff believes the fundamental trend will reassert itself.

Many States are scrambling to build new casinos. They mistakenly believe that this is a surefire prescription for more tax revenue and jobs. They've bought into the false Las Vegas Myth--that if you build it and it has a blackjack table, a roulette wheel and a craps table--they will come. However, Vegas is looking more and more like Detroit, yet another failed US city. Do politicians believe that encouraging and subsidizing these parasitic industries is going to build wealth? As libertarians we are not against citizens starting and running gambling enterprises. They've been doing it since the before the Babylonians and they're going to be doing long after we're gone.

What we object to is the unholy alliance of government and big gambling. It is corrupt and it does not serve the public. Selling mega-casinos as a panacea for economic growth is completely fraudulent. The overall wealth of a society that engages in governmental sponsored gambling enterprises actually goes down. While there is an increase in taxe revenues, there's also a resulting decrease in consumer spending and an increase in social costs, which are never factored into the rigged gambling equation.

While on occasion we have unsuccessfully tested our luck at the tables, we all know that gambling is a vice that can destroy families, increase crime and harm society. Therefore, the government should stay out of it, whether it's running lotteries, booking sports/horse bets or embracing casinos as a fiscal cure all.

Answer--Very gently. 

Chris Duane and Kerry Lutz sit down for a discussion of psychopaths and what to do about them. We've all probably encountered them at work, in government, in friendships or perhaps even had a relationship with one. Chris explains how to identify them and what you can do. Sometimes it's best to flee. Other times confrontation works and then perhaps the most effective method is simply ignoring them. It all depends upon the situation you find yourself in. But whatever you do, you must get away from them if at all possible. 

The history of politics and government is riddled with these destructive personality types. From Napoleon, to Lenin, to Hitler, to Stalin, to Mao, these dangerous men are all been certified sociopaths (Chris likes psychopath better). They've killed millions and inflicted untold pain and suffering. However, it is often the lesser known psychopaths who are in a position reek the most havoc in your life, which is why you need to be on your guard to avoid all such engagements. 

Always fun, often irreverent Kerry Lutz and Chris Duane are helping to evolve thought and action in the New Economy.
