No matter what the Fed does in the current economic state, the market seems to act like a palindrome. I have Jeff Clark on the podcast to discuss what exactly is happening in the markets, and how deficits are playing into this. We address gold and silver as well to break down how mining companies are functioning at the moment, and how to effectively invest in this sector. Tune in for more.

-The deficits are going to be running trillions of dollars for years to come
-In the past year, more money went into the stock market than in the last 20 years combined
-There will be another leg up in gold and silver
-The concern is that the next leg up could be bigger than is desired
-Debt levels are higher than ever
-The day for gold and silver is going to come—it’s almost inevitable
-We’re living in a circumstance where the more speculative something is, the more value it has

Summary:
How do we minimize the ever-increasing debt? I have Richard Vague on the podcast to talk about the pursuit of financial stability—which has become extremely difficult in our times. His mission as a public official is looking at debt and putting together strategies to remediate this.

Highlights:
-Richard preaches a messages of financial stability, which he represents in his books
-Perhaps a debt jubilee is what we need
-His mission as a public official is looking at debt and putting together strategies to deal with this
-Public and private sector debt are growing faster than GDP
-Anytime debt in a sector grows too rapidly, it means over-capacity is being created
-A debt boom creates illusory good times—jobs are being created, tax revenues at the government level are increasing, etc. Things appear to be really good
-It is only in the aftermath that we see desire to do something about it, and oftentimes capitalism gets blamed
-Vague puts out practical ideas for remediating debt that has been accumulated
-What incentives can the government put out to avoid these debt situations?
-The level of new homes being built right now are is below what it was in 2007
-Growth in debt has also come from lending standards/private equity lending
-They estimate that there are 90 million empty residences in China
-It used to be believed that credit creation went hand in hand with the increase of the money supply, but this is not necessarily the case
-Our country is not in an enviable position in terms of debt
-There is a mess coming down the road that will be hard to manage

Summary:
Unsurprisingly, the markets experienced a major meltdown over Black Friday—is it time to flee the market, or is this just another variant of financial disruption? I sit down and chat with Jeffrey Small to get the full picture of why this happened, and its relevance to the current economy. Thankfully, this disruption will most likely not mean much, and we will probably bounce back from the extreme inflation in the coming year. Tune in to get more insight.

Highlights:
-The market’s reaction on Friday was a knee-jerk reaction to the unknown
-Markets don’t like uncertainty
-This disruption probably won’t mean very much in consideration of the virus we’ve been living with for a while
-Inflation does create earnings growth, which is good for the market
-Investors need to buy companies that they know will have earnings growth
-The inflation we’re having now is excessive and will hurt the GDP growth
-Once we get past the holiday season, things will deflate and people won’t be spending as much on goods
-There is no reason as to why oil should be priced how it is today
-The government is directly responsible for oil trading at a high
-Are the tech stocks defensive? The Tesla stock is somewhat of a trend

The markets were down on Black Friday, and I sit down with John Rubino to discuss this phenomenon along with all of the other driving factors in the economy that led to this decline.

-Germany’s inflation is at a modern record high. The question is, how much further does this have to go for them to make a major decision going forward?

-The inflationary psychology is turning into an inflationary pathology
-When people start to think that the world is inflationary, they start to buy precious metals
-Inflation is now as high as it was in the 70s
-As we broaden our understanding of crypto and metals, we’ll realize that they’re similar and on the same side of history, but they are not the same asset

Kenneth Rapoza started out in financial services selling the usual products. After speaking with his best friend's father, he had an epiphany. This guy never seemed to have a job and yet the family always did well. Much like Robert Kiyasaki, his friend's rich dad taught him the ropes of successful investing. Kenneth is bullish on precious metals and believes that the proper life insurance policy can pay huge dividends.

We sat down with Jamie Keech to discuss inflation and inflation hedges. Jamie is of the opinion that inflation is here to stay and that factors are making commodities such as Uranium and battery metals better hedges than the traditional one of precious metals. Perhaps this is a sign that when even the most stalwart supporters start looking elsewhere, gold and silver are getting ready for the big move. Time will tell.

Summary:
If you’re looking at investments that will keep up and stay ahead of inflation, you have to look at real estate and understand the market. Andrew Ragusa comes on the show to tell us about real estate in the Northeast and what’s happening in the market. Properties are selling for around $30k higher than their asking price, which is a trend that will probably stick around for a bit. Tune in to hear about where the market is going, and what to expect in this industry in 2022.

Highlights:
-Andrew Ragusa unpacks what’s happening with real estate in the Northeast
-Houses are selling, on average, $30k over asking price
-Some people are trying to list their houses at very high prices just to see what happens, but they end up just sitting on the market
-Properties around the $400k price point go extremely fast
-Zillow was relying on the zestimate model, which is no longer very accurate
-There is not enough data to figure out the exact estimate for every property
-Real estate will probably remain somewhat stabilized in terms of slightly higher asking prices
-Some people are waiting because they think the market is going to crash
-On a nationwide level, people are hesitant about where to go once they do sell their property
-For 2022, more inventory will probably show up
-Changes in representation in the Northeast will probably cause more people to leave and different people to come in—the political landscape is shifting
-Interest rates are lower at the moment

Summary:
It seems as if everything we’ve worked for in Western civilization is crumbling, and I have Doug Casey on the show to talk about some of the economic catastrophes that have been unfolding. As time passes, we’re seeing more shortages, increased prices, and intensifying inflation. With the government putting out unreliable figures and doing the opposite of what should be done to resolve inflation, things seem to be headed downhill quickly.

Highlights:
-We’re seeing shortages, increasing prices, and inflation
-The figures the government is putting out are not completely reliable
-The collapse of Western civilization seems to be upon us
-In an advanced industrial society, supply chains are complex, and the people in charge are doing the opposite of what actually should be done
-International air travel is down 80%
-The world is tipping towards collectivism
-The digitization of the US dollar is also bringing large changes
-The government may opt to put out wage and price controls
-Who is going to collapse the old economy and move towards the free economy? It seems that no one is willing to take this step
-During the next 3-4 years, we are in for rough times in the US

What’s going on with the price of gold, and has it bottomed? I sit down and chat with David Erfle, a self-taught mining sector investor, to discuss what’s happening with this portion of the precious metals sector. On the last day of the quarter, gold had a huge reversal, and its price hasn’t looked back since. Erfle advises us to expect the unexpected, and not to rule anything out wen it comes to this sector.

Highlights:
-What’s going on with the price of gold? Has it bottomed?
-You can never leave certain price points off the table in the gold sector
-On the very last day of the quarter, gold had a huge reversal and the price hasn’t looked back since
-You have to be mindful of resistance points
-Before gold started going up, the stocks started leading again
-Volume on up days has been higher than volume on down days, which is a sign of accumulation
-The upward moves with gold need to happen slowly in case anything happens
-Inflation is probably not coming down any time soon

TIER ONE SILVER INTERSECTS 1,480.5 G/T SILVER EQUIVALENT OVER 1 METER ON THE MADRE STRUCTURE AT CURIBAYA

Tier One Silver released some highly positive news from their Curibaya Project in Peru. CEO Peter Dembicki explaind that, “[Drill] Hole #6 is the first plus-kilogram intercept at Curibaya on a feeder vein that may host the extensive high-grade silver on surface, which gives us the confidence that we are in the infancy of a new silver discovery. Drilling along structures that have yielded positive channel sample results is proving to be a sound strategy as the Company looks to realize the vast potential of the property indicated through high-grade silver mineralization on surface.“

Senior VP of Exploration David Smithson, speaking to us from the core shack at Curibaya, further clarified, “The positive results from hole 6 represent a major advancement in our understanding of the controls on high-grade mineralization within the project. The combination of alteration vectoring, targeting the margins of high chargeability anomalies and surface geochemical channel sampling is paying dividends with the drill. These results continue to support our view that Curibaya has the potential for a major discovery.”

Clearly these results are a major milestone in Tier One’s advancement towards a major discovery. Smithson suspects that there are a number of similar structures throughout their extensive land package and the team believes that their thesis has been further validated. Results are due in for 9 more holes. Dembicki is expecting more good news. As shareholders we’re excitedly looking forward to the next release.

Summary:
Will the Fed kill the market or the currency? It seems that it could come down to having to choose between the two, and I talk with Anthony Saccaro to unpack this tricky situation. With low unemployment and high inflation, the Fed is forced to raise interest rates. No matter what they do, it’s going to be bad on the market. To find out what’s happening with this situation and how to prepare, listen in because you won’t want to miss it.

Highlights:
-Will the Fed kill the market or the currency? It could come down to a choice between the two
-The Fed is in a precarious position
-The unemployment rate was doing well for a number of years pre-covid, and they hadn’t raised interest rates in a long time
-Now, unemployment is low and there is high inflation—and they are forced to raise interest rates
-They’re in a position where no matter what they do, it’s going to be bad on the market
-The worse of the evils at this point is letting inflation continue to run
-The question is whether inflation is temporary or transitory—or if it’s going to be long term
-There aren’t enough workers to unload ships, which is causing issues on the supply side
-Any inflation we have is going to be permanent, but going forward it will hopefully settle off at a lower level
-With the stimulus, people had more money, but less goods and services available
-People begin to expect prices to go higher
-The government is building an economy based on printing money
-If you’re still in the accumulation phase of life, continue with your stocks
-Focus on dividend paying stocks
-If you’re in the older phase of life, you need to be more cautious
-Focus on investments that are going to protect your principles
-Dividend paying stocks fluctuate a lot less than non-dividend paying stocks

I sit down and catch up with Octavio Marenzi, who has a lot of insight on why exactly inflation comes about, what price trends look like, and what is being done to fix this phenomenon. Price increases across the board are the result of monetary policy, and we keep seeing this more and more. Tune in to hear more from Octavio and myself.

Highlights:
-The President has ordered the FDC to immediately probe illegal conduct by oil and gas companies
-Are price controls inevitable?
-When there are supply shortages, certain prices go up
-When you see prices up across the board, this is the result of monetary policy
-There was a tremendous demand for cash. As things return to normalcy, people begin to spend this money, and there are supply chain issues
-Speculators are important for stabilizing prices
-Everything being done about inflation is exacerbating the problem
-Government cannot improve the standard of living overall
-Wage/price controls come from the same political ideas

The world is becoming more digital in a multitude of ways—one of the most prevalent being with money transactions. I sit down and speak with best selling author Richard Turrin about what some of these changes look like, and why this is a game changer for the big economies—starting with China. Tune in for more, and visit the links below to access Richard Turrin’s main website and book.

-There are very few cash transactions taking place in China
-Are digital currencies going to completely replace cash/standard currency?
-China is a cashless society in the big cities
-China is launching the world’s first central bank digital currency (CBDC) for a major economy
-A CBDC is not a cryptocurrency; it is a digital representation of paper money
-These transactions are free
-This also gets rid of the middle man—no credit processing needs to be done
-central digital currencies can be built on blockchain, but blockchain usually can’t sustain them in a large economy
-Central bank digital currency is issued by the central banks
-Stable coins are a cryptocurrency and they are a special kind of cryptocurrency that is tied to the value of the dollar
-There will be stable coin companies that are regulated similarly to banks
-With a lot of crypto coins, an unlimited amount can be created
-The new version of stable coins will be great

-The ride is extremely quiet and vibration free
-it has smartphone integration, and the app is constantly updated
-You can virtually control every feature of your Tesla—through your phone or the panel

Summary:
The Fed seems to be losing control of the inflation narrative. No one believes it's just temporary as the list of everyday things like gas and coffee that are soring in price gets longer. And fewer people think the Fed has any way of fixing things. 

The labor market is the tightest it's ever been, producing some scary/funny stories. 

US housing is officially a bubble. Now it's not just prices but behaviors that have become dangerous. 

This month's elections in VA and NJ imply big things for next year's Congressional midterms.

Thanksgiving dinner cost is hitting a record. If nothing else brought home the cost of inflation, this dinner will.

Highlights:
-Is the Fed losing control? They have always controlled the narrative, but now, not so much
-The narrative is everything in the currency world
-The Fed has gotten away with the story that the higher prices are transitory and that normality will return
-Financial markets are being affected—there are inflation hedges and gold and silver are starting to ramp up
-It looks as if people don’t believe the Fed anymore
-Inflation started getting closer to double digits in the 70s
-The Fed has made the decision to let the current inflation run for a while and do a tiny bit of tapering
-Inflation is forever now
-In a government bond, you would lose so much capital every year
-Thanksgiving dinner is up to as much as $100 a turkey
-This is a great time to be a debtor
-The complexion of the precious metals market has changed entirely over the last three weeks
-We’ve seen upside reversals

Summary:
We are continually presented with this notion of ‘transitory’ inflation, which is entirely inaccurate and misleading. I sit down with Michael Pento to discuss the real driving factors of the current monetary situation, and what this is going to look like as we enter the new year. Over the last couple of years we have seen $6 trillion handed out to increase consumption, but the balance increase is going to be $0 in 2022. Will the markets be able to survive in these conditions? Tune in to find out more.

Highlights:
-The notion of ‘transitory’ inflation is focus group driven and is not realistic
-Thanksgiving Turkey alone this year could be over $100 for ten people
-The central bank was finally able to launch modern monetary theory—borrowing money from the treasury, giving it to consumers, and printing it all
-Countries like Israel are experiencing hyper-inflation
-Next year, this will probably melt down
-We have a fiscal and monetary cliff heading into 2022
-There is going to be a crash in asset prices
-You may see a crash in real estate bonds outside of treasuries which could cause inflation to crash all at once
-In 2 years, $6 trillion was handed out to increase consumption, and the balance increase is going to be $0 in 2022
-The stock market will most likely look like it did in 2018, and crumble in a month or two
-2022 is going to look nothing like the previous two years
-Inflation is a monetary phenomenon—it’s not what happens as a result of shortages
-Is the Fed going to let all these markets collapse?
-We are probably headed towards a blockchain currency managed by the Fed—there wouldn’t even have to be a treasury
-Real interest rates are not going to go much higher
-Gold is going to trade much more towards the level of real interest rates
-China saved the global economy to a great extent in 2008 with construction projects, but they can’t do that again
-No one country will be able to save us from what’s happening in 2022

Summary:
Real estate is still in a major up-swing: prices continue to go up, inventory is low, and people are over-bidding just to get a house. A major online business that has added to the confusion is Zillow, and Debbie Bloyd comes on the show to explain how utilizing real experts and technology (rather than just technology) allows for accurate appraisals. Tune in to learn about the factors that Zillow tends to neglect when valuing a home, and how to be more aware in the current market.

Highlights:
-Not everyone is making money in real estate; Zillow has lost a lot of money with house flipping
-Here to explain where Zillow went wrong is mortgage broker Debbie Bloyd
-Zillow was messing up people’s expectations of how business should be done. You have to stay within the market range and not take people out of the equation
-You can’t only pay attention to technology and algorithms
-Zillow’s estimate does not have the final say; their algorithm doesn’t factor in everything
-A true appraisal is the only way to know what a property should sell for
-Zillow is a technology company applied tor real estate
-We need more people involved within the transactions
-There are going to be new ways to do appraisals on digital platforms in the coming years—utilizing technology and people
-Rates have been steady, but next year they’re going to go up
-With the stagflation in the 70s, real estate prices didn’t go up until the 80s

Summary:
We are currently experiencing the highest inflation we’ve seen in about 30 years, and I sit down and chat with Michael Busler to discuss some of the factors that have played into this. This is something that we experienced back in the 70s, and it is likely here to stay. Inflation is manifesting in a number of areas including energy and working wages—fueled by supply chain shortages and people leaving the workforce to receive money from the government. Something has to give, and we must show resistance to increasing prices if we want to avoid further damage to the economy.

Highlights:
-Is Build Back Better going to happen? We have inflation, an infrastructure bill, and a lot of other factors
-This is the highest inflation we’ve seen in about 30 years
-The Biden administration and the Federal Reserve say that it will go away—but this is not necessarily true
-They want the price of fossil fuels to increase, and have carried this out by restricting the supply
-Energy prices are going to rise in these conditions—manufacturers are also paying more to get energy
-Energy inflation is here to stay
-Wage inflation is also a major problem—3 million workers left the job market during COVID and are not returning
-Businesses had to raise the starting wage of these workers to get them back, and had to raise them for other workers as well
-The government has spend $6 million more than they’ve brought in in tax revenue in the last 2 years
-These things should not be passed at this time since we’re already in a hole
-Even when the supply chain issue is resolved, there are still number of other things causing inflation
-We could end up having stagflation, which we haven’t seen since the late 1970s
-The 70s was a great time to be a debtor
-As long as people keep receiving free money, they start to expect it. This mindset doesn’t help with the labor shortage
-Stock prices will usually go up more than the inflation rate
-When you see prices go up, don’t automatically pay them—see if there are substitute products
-If people become resistant to it, there will likely be less inflation

Summary:
If you want expert insight on the precious metals and economic factors that influence this market, you won’t want to miss this episode. I sit down and chat with Craig Hemke about recent happenings, in which gold and silver broke the same number last week and are on the upward trend. There is a market inefficiency developing within gold, and this has to do with people buying into the idea of ‘transitory’ inflation.

Highlights:
-On the same day last week, gold and silver broke the same number and have been headed up ever since
-The bank created 30,000 contracts and added them to the existing contracts, which diluted the flow
-There is a market inefficiency developing within gold
-This is due to market participants believing the transitory claims
-When copper started taking off, this was the first hint that inflation wasn’t transitory
-Gold is a global thing and is influenced by so many factors, so you have to keep your eye out for them
-Even natgas is heavily influenced by geopolitics
-Most of the people alive today don’t know what inflation really is—specifically the inflationary times of the 70s
-So many countries have had hyper-inflation over the last 50 years, but a lot of Americans don’t understand that inflation never really left us
-Inflation is going to stay and get a lot worse before it gets better
