We sat down with Nolan Watson, CEO of Sandstorm Gold Royalty (TSX:SSL, NYSE American:SAND) our sponsor to discuss the rapidly changing global financial conditions and why gold still matters. If you're not familiar with Sandstorm, it's a royalty streaming company started in 2008 and now has nearly 200 royalty streams. They've been busy expanding their business and buying in shares, a notable feat. Nolan is concerned about the future. He sees no let up in debt creation and a complete unwillingness by the world's political leaders to address it. While he's not sure how much longer this can go on, he is certain that at some point there's going to be a day of reckoning. Why else would China and Russia still be acquiring more metal reserves? This belief has played a big part in Sandstorm's successful strategy and its growth. Until major changes are made to the system, it's still a pretty safe bet.
