It's Monday, June 16, 2014. We've got an interview with Julian DW Phillips. He thinks that gold has almost certainly put in it's bottom and that the West is finished transferring it's gold to the East. This can only mean higher prices. Then we've got John Rubino talking about shocking developments in China and amazing No-Doc Loans to businesses; Andrew Hoffman's Manipulation Monday discussion and Prof. Laurence Kotlikoff returns. Don't forget to go to Patreon.com/KerryLutz to support the show.

John Rubino of DollarCollapse.com was on talking about the deteriorating situation in Iraq. Unlike the 1970's when the world economy was much stronger, can it withstand $150 or $200 per barrel oil? Probably not for too long. Did you know that China's central bank is now the world's largest holder of equities? How did that happen and what do they own? Banks are now making low and no documentation loans to businesses. That will end about as well as no doc loans to homeowners did.

Julian DW Phillips has a unique perspective on the precious metals market. Located in South Africa, along with the benefit of decades of experience, Julian sees that gold is being re-monetized and the supply is diminishing. This means that the value is going way higher. In addition, the balance of economic power is shifting from West to East. It's all about to hit the fan and you need to be ready.

The Ayn Rand Institute's Elan Journo discussing the numerous failings of American Foreign Policy. From Vietnam forward, it's been one failure after another. When America doesn't stand for its ideals it winds up standing for nothing.With latest developments in Iraq one must wonder what it was all for.

Nick Santiago of InTheMoneyStocks.com is an ace technical investor. He sees the stocket as just about played out on the upside. But he's nervous about shorting a dull market. Therefore, he wants to go short on certain sectors like natural gas. He believes that gold and silver have one more correction to the down side and then it's straight up for many years to come. His opinion is confirmed by many other experts who've recently been on the show. Hopefully they're right and gold and silver will finally be unshackled and allowed to seek their natural price levels.

We had a great interview with noted economist and author Richard Duncan yesterday. While he advocates a pragmatic view and acceptance of the status quo and abandonment of our ideals and capitalism, I can't accept that. Expecting the government to make successful bets on future technologies is a long shot that is destined to fail. Rather we need to find a way back to our roots and sound money and to mitigate the inevitable damage, because either way, pain is going to occur. 

Speaking of failure of the existing paradigm there's Rhode Island and Providence Plantations. That's the actual name of the Ocean State. And they had a referendum in 2010 because some people believed it was racist. Plantation in English meant colony. But they have far greater problems, the state is a Stalinist Theme Park. It's an epic fail. Liberalism and Progressivism have had their way since 1935 and the place is falling apart. And the people are too arrogant or stupid or both to see it. 

Then there's that other epic fail, Detroit. What to try next? Perhaps urban homesteading. Knocking down all 40,000 abandoned homes will only cost $850 million or $22k each. Sounds like a steal! Why not have an Uber wrecking App and have a Dutch Auction? These homes are truly worth more dead than alive.

James Hirsen says the recent primary election results in California brought some rare good tidings to the beleaguered Golden State GOP. The Democrats in the California State Legislature, who once thought that they were easily going to recapture supermajorities in both state houses, now see their desired outcome as a much more remote possibility. Surprisingly, candidates in key races for the California State Senate, who by significant margins obtained the highest vote counts, were Republicans. The state senate is significant in that it is the legislative body in which Democrats were involved in scandals, which resulted in three politicians being suspended from office and criminal charges being lodged against them.

Gordon T. Long was on today talking about the Uber Revolution taking place in Europe. Seems the state-sponsored taxi monopolies are none too happy about the competition that this little app is causing them. Nevermind the employment opportunities for all the unemployed students, it's undermining the power of the state. And what's going on with the re-hypothecation scandal in China. Who owns anything anymore? Nonone knows. Just wait till the next crash.

Dr. Yaron Brook of the Ayn Rand Institute believes that income equality is good for society. People are different and not everyone is puts forth the same effort or generates the same productivity. He believes that the left's rallying cry is false and just another effort to confiscate wealth from those who produce it. It's much like their efforts to raise the minimum wage. They know that it will benefit no one, but it makes for good headlines and is proof of their lofty intentions.

Richard Duncan is a well known economist and author. He's written three books explaining exactly what's wrong with today's economic system. Capitalism is dead, we now have creditism. It's too late to go back and the results of any effort to do so will be nothing short of catastrophic. We have to make the best of what we have. The government should invest wisely in new technologies that will reap huge dividends that will enable us dig out way out of the huge hole we're in. Can it work? Perhaps, but no one has proposed a better solution. Richard has a special offer to FSN listeners. Go to RDMacroView.com and use the code Network. Sign up for the FSN newsletter to listen to part two of this interview, it's extremely compelling radio.

Former Congressman John LeBoutillier believes that Bergdahl swap was merely a smokescreen to get the VA Scandal off the front pages. If that was the case, it failed miserably. The VA Scandal isn't going away and neither is the scandal that arose from releasing 5 of the most dangerous Taliban leaders kept in Gitmo.

Danielle Park joined us for our bi-weekly discussion. During an economic downturn it's important to temper your expectations when it comes to your return. Instead of 8 percent with mountains of risk, a 2-4 percent riskless return starts looking pretty good. If you don't believe it, just look at Detroit's pension fund. It's beneficiaries are taking a major hit in the bankruptcy because it's former mayor decided to line his pockets at their expense.

Comrade DeBlasio who succeeded Nanny Bloomberg as mayor of New York City has a not so-secret plan to expand the City's welfare rolls. He's dropping the work requirement for recipients to receive welfare and foodstamps. This reverses a 20 year old policy that reduced the number of public assistance beneficiaries by nearly 80 percent. But now it's gone. That's progressive progress!

Don Watkins of the Ayn Rand Institute has a new book out, RooseveltCare: How Social Security Is Sabotaging the Land of Self-Reliance. In it he makes a very pursuasive argument that abolishing Social Security will help restore America to economic sanity. The program has had a very corrosive effect upon American's self reliance and has led to an involuntary multi-generational transfer of wealth. If left unchecked, an economic meltdown is sure to occur.

Dr. Ivan Eland is no fan of Gitmo or the extra-legal detention of enemy combatants, but he's troubled by the way the administration arranged the prisoner swap, violating the law and gaining nothing in return. He believes that the President should investigate the manner in which Bergdahl disappeared and the deaths of those who were searching for him, in order to dispel the rumors and half-truths that have circulated since the swap took place. What will become of the Taliban Leaders who were some of the most brutal men captured during the war is another issue that the administration apparently paid almost no attention to. Will they wind up on the battle field only to kill again?

John Rubino reports. The European Central Bank tried something different. As Bloomberg reported:

The European Central Bank cut its deposit rate below zero and said it would announce further measures later today as policy makers try to counter the prospect of deflation in the world’s second-largest economy. ECB President Mario Draghi reduced the deposit rate to minus 0.10 percent from zero, making the institution the world’s first major central bank to use a negative rate. Policy makers also lowered the benchmark rate to 0.15 percent from 0.25 percent. The promise of further measures today “has stoked up hopes that the ECB is going to unleash a huge bazooka on the market in the press conference,” said Philip Shaw, chief economist at Investec Securities Ltd. in London. While he thinks that quantitative easing is “very unlikely” now, “it may well be that what the ECB just said is stoking up hopes that QE could be on the cards after all. ”

Emeka Iwenofu gotten bitten by the writing bug at a late age. But he didn't let that stop him from realizing his dream. He's gone on to self-publish 2 books of a trilogy. They're based on autobiographical characters who grow up in disadvantaged homes and triumph against all odds. Emeka is hoping to help others rise up just like he did. His story is incredibly inspiring.

Our old friend Joe Messina and I discuss the alarming state of public schools in America today. Imagine a substitute teacher asking 9 year olds for dating advice, or a teacher getting suspended for showing a historical video about white actors wearing blackface, or a student causing a stir for drawing a picture of a cloud that resembled a gun. The list goes on and on. Oh and now there's warning labels on water bottles, so be very careful, the world's a very dangerous place.

Jason Burack was back on the show after a long hiatus. He's deeply concerned about the state of the economy in the United States and the future of capitalism. As you might have guessed, Jason believes your best protection is precious metals, although there might be a crack-up boom along the way. Otherwise, if we keep moving at the current rate, the end result is clear.
