We sat down with Mickey Fulp and while there's not a lot to be happy about, many markets have been going up since the first of the year. And as the old Wall Street Maxim says,  So goes January, So goes the Year. And you have to take your profits while you can get them. But of course you always need to have a core holding of gold and silver. The rest is extra money that you've hopefully been able to grow during the course of a very tough couple of years. There's absolutely no indication that anything has fundamentally improved of that any of the long standing, intractable problems have been solved, but Wall Street doesn't seem very concerned about these issues. But you should be, because one day they'll wake but it will be too late.

Copper's been heading down a bit since January, seems the Chinese have been hoarding it. And perhaps the most surprising developments, the US approved two new nuclear power plants to be built in Georgia and the Germans are restarting several shut-in nukes. While nuclear power's rebirth in the West has been greatly exaggerated, perhaps reality is now catching up. Uranium stocks haven't had much of a move recently, but that could be changing. 

All-in-all financial markets never surprise us with their unpredictability, and 2012 is proving no different.

Things are going down at an escalating rate according to Traderview.com's Ty Andros. He believes the US and the World economies are contracting at rising rates. This is why the debt can't be paid. Real economic growth, which allows for servicing and repayment of debt is non-existent. Of course, if you just rely upon the official government statistics, you won't realize this. But when inflation is properly calculated, deliberate distortions, like implied rent being treated as income, are factored out and the picture looks quite bleak. 

Ty has said it before and so have many of our guests, buying gold and silver is the only way for the average working person to secure his/her future. We've repeated this admonition to you so many times in the past, but it really can never be repeated enough. Look at the average American or citizen from virtually an country; they own little or no precious metals. If they were fortunate enough to get the family sterling silver passed down through the generations, this could well be their economic salvation in the coming hard times. Thinking outside the box, and finding new ways to realize value from what you own and the services you can provide are the keys to prosperity in any economic depression. Don't sell your metals until you absolutely have to--this is sound advice that will make all the difference.

Jim Rickards joined the Financial Survival Network to discuss his new book Currency Wars and to discuss the eventual dropping of the fiat money standard. Virtually everyone who doesn't reside in Washington, DC or Wall Street understands that Nixon's closing of the Gold Window 40 years ago, has helped create the unstable economic and monetary conditions the world is now experiencing. At some point, either an economic collapse or a world monetary agreement is going to put the experiment out of our collective misery. Jim doesn't see an economically enlightened leader stepping forward to lead the world into a new Golden Age.

So that means that a collapse and resulting chaos are probably going to cause the inevitable transition. Jim states for the record, and it is a well established fact, "a Central Bank is not mandatory." The US got along just fine during the 1800's after President Andrew Jackson disbanded the Second Bank of the United States. In fact on his death bed, Jackson said he was most proud of his victory of central banking. The problem is that mankind doesn't learn from history until it's too late. And that will probably be the case here.

Chris Duane and I sit down after an enormously successful roundtable with David Morgan to discuss the market for enlightened free thought. While things on many fronts appear to be getting worse, and freedom appears to be under every increasing attack, more and more people are coming to understand the failure of the current economic and political paradigm and are seeking answers. That's why Chris, Sean (SGTReport), BrotherJohnF and so many others are finding ever larger audiences for their ideas and answers.

As Chris explains it, the BabyBoomers--of which yours truly is a member--are about to go down the economic river without a paddle. People who just a few years ago were looking forward to a comfortable and dignified retirement are now facing a lifetime of toil and hard labor. Retirement nest eggs have been devastated. According to Chris, the only hope is the immediate purchase of 1000 ounces of silver. Once the dollar experiences its ultimate demise, this amount of silver should be the ticket to many retirements, in style and with self-respect. While the future price of silver is always a matter of conjecture, its past increase has been meteoric, going from $4 per ounce a decade ago to $33 now.

Bix Weir of RoadtoRoota.com fame was with us yesterday and explained that Ron Paul is actually ahead in the delegate count for the Republican Presidential Nomination. It seems Ron Paul supporters have been working the system and getting his delegates installed even when others have won the popular count! If this is true, it could be a major election game changer. Time will tell if Dr. Paul has the winning electoral special sauce.

Bix is expecting major market gyrations in March. He believes a global financial realignment will be rearing its ugly head and that this will further cement Dr. Paul's victory in place. FSN stays away from exact predictions because we have learned through hardened experience, "Things take much longer to occur than you ever believed, but happen much faster than you ever thought possible." The economic collapse/soap opera certainly falls into this category.

Sean founder of the SGTReport.com, one of the most popular freedom advocate sites on the internet joins us for a no holds barred interview. He believes freedom is hanging in the balance and that we may have crossed the Rubicon. Since starting his YouTube channel, he's gotten millions of views. He's struck a chord with people around the world who sense that something is very wrong and who are trying to understand the exact nature of the global financial challenges that lie ahead.

Awareness is the first step towards addressing the underlying issues. Until some level of understanding is achieved, it will continue to remain impossible to find solutions to these seemingly intractable problems. Sean has dedicated much of his life to help you clearly see the challenges that we are all facing and those that your children and grandchildren will face in the future. The defining issue of our country and the world is really whether or not these problems can be solved.
