Chareles writes, What can you say about a "healthcare" system in which 99% of all physicians will face a malpractice claim in their careers?  According to Malpractice Risk According to Physician Specialty (The New England Journal of Medicine), "It was estimated that by the age of 65 years, 75% of physicians in low-risk specialties had faced a malpractice claim, as compared with 99% of physicians in high-risk specialties." There has to be a better way.

Rob Kirby of kirbyanalytics.com joined the show for the first time today. As a seasoned finance professional Rob honed in on the exact causes 2008-9 financial collapse, which in fact started in 2007. It's seven years later and the damage has been extensive. Virtually every market in the world has been corrupted. Even those that haven't, have been extremely distorted by the flood of zero interest money. But, precious metals are the achilles heel of the system. One day in the not too distant future, the chickens will all come home to roost.

There's a new consumer credit bubble taking place. Some of it is obvious and some it is not so obvious. But it's happening nonetheless. But get ready because lessening FICO standards is only the beginning. You're going to see it with mortgages and credit cards and some many other types of credit. In a world where the banks are mere appendages of the government, when Uncle Sam wants credit expansion, he just has to say the word and it gets done, no matter how uncredit worthy the borrowers maybe. And who could be less creditworthy than Uncle Sam himself? He's hundreds of trillions in hoc and taking on more every second.

John Rubino joined us to discuss how the Keynesian geniuses over at Treasury are now resorting to FICO inflation to help lift the economy. For some reason, they believe that if they artificially inflate consumers' credit scores, this will lead to an increase in economic activity. More consumers will be able to get credit cards, buy autos and homes. While this may be true for a short time period, it will also help bring on another credit bust, eventually leading to a bust. How stupid can they be? 

We also discussed the new American bombing attacks in Iraq and what it means for the country and you. There's much here to digest.

Jerry Robinson, well known economist and author, joined us today. The US has started bombing ISIS in Iraq and Jerry thinks it's going to turn out badly. Make no mistrak these are some very barbaric evil people, even worse than Saddam Hussein. Wait, didn't the US remove Saddam. Anyway, Jerry's proprietary trading system just spit out another buy signal on Gold. This on the heals of his last one that saw gold go from 1265 to nearly 1345. We say, go for the Gold!

It seems no matter how the manipulators try they just can't keep gold under $1300 an ounce. Or maybe they aren't trying very hard. They've got silver just under $20, but how long can they keep it there? And Jerry Robinson's put out a buy on Gold. So What's Next? And now they're banning bake sales and soon cupcakes and brownies from schools across America. When will the indignities cease? Oh the humanity! All in the name of healthy meals for our undeserving children. And there's lots more. So listen on.

Dave Kranzler and I examine the weeks greatest frauds brought to you by the greatest Fraud Factory ever known to man, the US Government. First there's the housing boom, which is quickly turning into a major bust. But don't worry, there's a story circulating that the FHFA is planning a new mortage program called the Mirror Mortgage. If you can fog a mirror, the house is yours. Next, car sales, that wonderful economic indicator that shows an oh so healthy economy, that will eventually cost banks, meaning the taxpayer, hundreds of billions. Stay tunded for more. There's so much fraud going on today that it's getting harder to find the real economy.

Barry Stuppler, long time veteran of the rare coin and precious metals industry spoke to us live from the Rosemont Coin Show near Chicago. The mint just introduced the Kennedy gold coin. It's 3/4 of an ounce. It's selling at quite a premium, $1240. But the real news is that people are lined up around the block to purchase it. It's selling for several times that amount on eBay. Barry says the mania will soon die out and all that will remain is the memory of having overpaid.

Woody O'Brien, gentleman farmer and financial newsletter writer has a unique proposal to restore America. He says that when someone is raising 2 pigs, and you live nearby, you probably won't smell them. However, if they're raising 2,000 pigs, you probably won't stop smelling them. The financial sector is exactly the same. Therefore, the answer is simple, allow no more than 25 employees in any financial concern. This will wipe out the corruption and help restore the political system.

Mickey Fulp was on doing his monthly major market review. Volatility was the byword for July. While most of the major stock markets made new highs for the month, they backed off by month's end. Natural gas took a major hit. The Dollar was up, so the Euro was down. Oil too started sinking, as did Gold and Silver. Uranium looks like it might have ended its disastorous period. Interestlingly enough, Bitcoin was the model of stability.

Darryl Schoon saw the the real estate bust coming in 2007 and even wrote a well regarded paper about it. Now he sees the same thing coming for the US Government Bond Market, with results that could be catastrophic. He says that buying precious metals is like buying a single premium life insurance on the world economic system. You'll almost certainly be able to cash in on it. The world has become an out-patient drop in center that has run out of meds. Better not wait too long.

Rick Ackerman believes that the stock market is topping out now. Where will all that money go? Into the bond market of course. That will cause already low rates to tumble even further. But there's no other place for it to go. We're headed for more deflation and nothing can stop it now.

Following the logic, if a drug dealer is just an unlicensed pharmacist, than an illegal alien is simply an undocumented worker. No one is responsible for anything that they do anymore and the buck stops nowhere. And why should it, since the government never takes any responsibility for anything either. Whether it's Obamacare blowing up, or a flood of illegal aliens crossing the border, it's nobody's fault.

When John Rubino and James Turk recently wrote The Money Bubble, a follow-up to their bestselling The Collapse of the Dollar and How To Profit From It, they were unprepared for how quickly it was all going to happen. Now we have an auto credit bubble starting to unravel. There's also the student loan bubble and the junk bond bubble. What's next, the teenager allowance bubble? There's so many bubbles that have been blown and now they're starting to pop, what's a central planner/banker to do? We're sure it will all work out in the long run.

Chris Vermeulen--TheGoldandOldGuy.com is an expert at detecting market short and medium term trends. He believes that all signs are pointing to an intermediate stock market correction and he thinks it's an excellent time to make money. But you've got to be on the ball. Precious metals could be heading lower. Same with oil and commodities. But Chris is unconcerned. As long as the market is moving and he's picked up on the trend, he's happy.

In their haste to beat down gold in the wake of the Fed meeting, looks like it wasn't quite enough to keep it down. While Da Boyz always like to slam gold on the last day of the month whenever possible, it seems to be snapping back right away. 

Keep your eyes focused on the political scene. The same pattern that brought you Comrade DeBlasio is likely to bring you Comrade Warren as the Democratic nominee. 

Much more here than we have space for. So keep listening.

Monty says finally, statistics regarding the changes in net worth have made the mainstream media. These statistics, as reported in the NY Times, are horrific, as are the implications for the future of the country.

Net worth may be the best single measure of a country’s well-being. Median net worth is a reasonable marker for the standard of living. Medians (or averages) are not good measures to capture what is happening at the lowest or highest ends. (More about that below.)

In the simplest terms, net worth is the value of a person’s assets minus his liabilities. If this measure is growing, a person is becoming better off. If it is shrinking then that person is becoming worse off, at least in terms of wealth.

ROBERT MAZUR spent five years undercover infiltrating the criminal hierarchy of Colombia’s drug cartels. The dirty bankers and businessmen he befriended—some of whom still shape power across the globe—knew him as Bob Musella, a wealthy, mob-connected big shot living the good life. Together they partied in $1,000-per-night hotel suites, drank bottles of the world’s finest champagne, drove Rolls-Royce convertibles, and flew in private jets. But under Mazur’s Armani suits and in his Renwick briefcase, recorders whirred quietly, capturing the damning evidence of their crimes. Then, at a staged wedding, he led a dramatic takedown that shook the underworld. In the end, more than eighty men and women were charged worldwide. Operation C-Chase became one of the most successful undercover operations in the history of U.S. law enforcement, and evidence gathered during the bust proved critical to the conviction of General Manuel Noriega.

TheStreet.com's Dan Freed joins us for a discussion of the mortgage crisis and just where that $65 billion in settlement proceeds that the big banks are paying over to the Feds and the States is going. In some states like New York it may actually help homeowners in need, but in others like California, it's just going to plug the deficit. Have we learned anything from the mortgage meltdown? That remains to be seen.

Ivan Eland thinks that the American foreign policy elite should learn something from the recent humiliating evacuation of the U.S. embassy in Tripoli, Libya -- amid the chaos of tribal civil war in that country -- but probably won't. Since World War II, this bipartisan elite has thumbed its nose at the traditional U.S. foreign policy of strategic independence and military restraint overseas, which was initiated by the nation's founders and lasted through the most of the republic's history. Then the second great world conflagration demonstrated to the elite that new interdependence among nations somehow made that policy obsolete. Really?
