Chris Mayer has travelled the world seeking out investment opportunities in the least likely of places. People in the lesser developed countries of the world see what citizens of more prosperous areas have and how they live. This has lead to a global modernization drive to bring these countries' standards of living up to the Western World's standards. While there's a lot of uncertainty and fears about what the future will bring, this rising tide will inevitably lift all boats. Chris sees Asia driving a global prosperity wave.

At Agora Financial, Chris is managing editor of the Capital and Crisis and Mayer’s Special Situations newsletters. He gave up commercial banking to take up financial research/writing at exactly the right time. Now, he has thousands of subscribers around the world, and it's a big world. Chris regularly uncovers unique investment ideas and themes in such diverse areas as agriculture, water, energy and infrastructure.

Bob Chapman joins us again today for our biweekly check-in. Since we've been doing the show together for almost a year, nothing much has changed, except that the elites are getting more and more brazen in their exploitative criminal enterprises. Bob thinks that Corzine maybe spending a weekend at Bernie's or perhaps even several years. While Corzine repeatedly claimed he had no idea where the money was, now it looks like he probably did.

Yet again, and again, and again gold and silver are under attack. However, the system is cealrly moving to metals so you need to get there ahead of it. China doesn't have enough gold to back its currency; actually, very few countries do. So there's a scramble taking place by the banks to acquire gold at virtually any cost, regardless what the paper markets say the price is. But we'll know the true value of unbacked paper soon enough.

Looks like there might be just a little hope for the beleaguered MF Global clients. In London, KPMG a large international accounting firm who was appointed by the English bankruptcy court to account for the "lost" assets of MF has so far recovered $500 million dollars of unsegregated customer funds from a small list of large financial institutions. They're going for $1 billino and they told this motly group in January that if they didn't pay up, they're going to court. This may be the best chance account holders have of ever seeing their money again. And it explains why large financial groups are buying up client claims at a discount, because they know that the clients will eventually get back all their money.

Also, we see the fall out from the Swift banning of Iran from the international transfer network which has resulted in the start of an abandonment of the dollar and the opening of many swap agreements between trading partners. Get ready for what's coming next!

And finally, our new site is up and running. We're carrying the top financial and economic stories of the day and you can sign up there for the free Financial Survival Toolkit and free weekly newsletter.
