During the meeting, Kerry Lutz and Aaron Clary discussed the benefits of getting off the societal support and validation grid by building your own home. They argued that this approach could provide economic opportunities and valuable skills, and could be a solution to the housing crisis. They also discussed the potential mental benefits of opting-out of society and rediscovering oneself, but acknowledged that not everyone will participate in this trend.

Aaron suggested that young people should consider building their own homes instead of pursuing higher education, and mentioned the hurdles that come with this unconventional approach, such as the cost of land and the need for skills in carpentry and home repairs. Kerry shared a personal anecdote about fixing a toilet and encouraged listeners to take on household repairs themselves or find a handyman to save money. They also discussed the potential for creative financing, such as rent-to-own, and the availability of resources like YouTube for self-instruction.

In the wrap-up of their interview, Kerry and Aaron discussed where to find Aaron's work and had a brief personal chat about South Dakota and Aaron's personal life. The tone was friendly and casual, with both speakers expressing pleasure in talking to each other.

Economic historian extraordinaire is with us today to explain the credit bust, where it's heading, where we're going, and put it in historical perspective as well. As Bob explains, this credit/economic bust is just like all the others, only potentially much worse. This is great news for the US Dollar and eventually gold. But it's bad news for tech stocks and the rest of the economy. Bob believes that this ultimate credit bust will lead the world to head back to a gold stand and that's a good thing. Gone will be the days of financial engineering by the world's inept conflicted and compromised central bankers. Sound money is just a digital printing press away.

During the meeting, Kerry Lutz and Eddie Seidel discussed the recent job numbers and consumer credit.

Addison Wiggin was with Kerry to discuss a broad range of topics related to finance and economics. They talked about the importance of understanding big trends and positioning personal money accordingly, as well as the mistakes made during the boom and the importance of good investment practices. They also discussed the causes of inflation and how it is impacted by the reserve currency of the world, arguing that inflation is primarily a monetary phenomenon and that the Federal Reserve's policies have a global impact.

The speakers also discussed the problems with cryptocurrencies, including the collapse of FTX and the involvement of the SEC in investigating crypto fraud. They agreed that cryptocurrencies lack many of the principles of currency and are not a medium of exchange per se'. Additionally, they talked about the psychology of financial markets and the importance of self-regulation, noting that the dopamine rush that comes with boom profits in financial markets makes it very difficult to self-regulate, especially for inexperienced investors.

Kerry Lutz and Jeremy Cordon discussed Gold Backs, a form of commodity money that is split into a thousand pieces and wrapped in a protective layer to make it nearly impossible to counterfeit. Nearly half of all small businesses approached are interested in accepting Gold Backs. Since 2019, they have become the most successful local currency in American history. They are worth four dollars each and have a 5% spread on them, tighter than silver.

Gold Back Inc. has created a product that is a series of local currencies that are tied to the Uniform Commercial Code and are exchangeable for a gold eagle. It has been sold on every continent except Antarctica and has added three quarters of a million people to the gold market in the past few years. It is sold by big metals dealers and online retailers, and more information can be found at www.GoldBack.com.

Russell Stone discussed the current state of the economy with Kerry Lutz on the Financial Survival Network. He believes that the Consumer Confidence Index is a hiccup and that the market is trending down due to the decrease in used car prices, real estate prices, and unemployment. He suggests that people should have a base of their portfolio in precious metals and money market accounts that only buy T-bills. He believes that the US government is in trouble due to its debt and unfunded liabilities and that the day of reckoning is coming. He suggests that people should pull out unnecessary money from the market, buy low and high, and pay off debt. He believes that the deflationary cycle is underway and that the government will have to write off some debt in order to get the economy going.

Roei Ganzarski's company Alithieon has developed a technology that enables authentication and verification of items without the need for etching, serial numbers, or any other form of identification. This technology uses a feature print to identify items with just a camera. BMW is the lead investor in the company, which has over 45 patents and is already being used in five distinct segments, including luxury goods, collectibles, transportation, DOD, and pharmaceuticals. The technology is robust enough to identify items even after they have been altered or scratched, and can even identify counterfeit items. The company is currently privately held, but hopes to go public in the next 24 months.

Jordan Roy-Byrne agrees that the market often seeks to frustrate the majority of participants, especially in the precious metals and mining stocks, particularly the juniors. He believes that gold will break out above $2100 when the economy moves towards a recession and the Fed is forced to ease policy. This could happen as soon as September or as late as winter.

Jordan Roy-Byrne discussed the current state of the gold market, noting that gold needs to break out above $2100 for there to be a real bull market in the sector. He also noted that patience is needed, as the recession and the 2020 elections will likely play a role in the gold market's performance. He also mentioned his publication, The Daily Gold Premium, which provides content and analysis on the gold market.

Kathleen Day has written a book about the history of financial crises in the US, which have been occurring since the founding of the country. She explains that while deregulation can be beneficial, it must be accompanied by increased oversight to prevent crises. People tend to forget the lessons of the past and take more risks when other people's money is at stake. The reserve requirement is meant to protect against liquidity crises, but if the demand for deposits continues, banks can still become insolvent and taxpayers must pay the price.

Kathleen Day discussed the similarities between the financial crisis of the 1980s and the current situation, noting that both had to do with inflation and interest rates. She also discussed the role of the government in regulating banks and the need for stress tests for all size banks. Lastly, she discussed the dangers of moral hazard and the need for banks to be conservative in their investments.

Michael Pento believes that the Fed's rapid rate increases have caused a banking crisis, and that the Fed's actions have created an artificial construct that will lead to a deflationary recession/depression followed by runaway inflation. He predicts a 30-50% drop in equity averages and suggests investors play it safe by collecting dividends in a safe manner.

Michael  discussed the unsustainable levels of global debt and the potential for deflation and a depression if the Fed does not take action to reduce debt levels. He believes that inflation is not the answer and that the middle class will suffer if it continues. He suggests that the Fed should reduce the balance sheet and remove the gamblers from Wall Street in order to create a healthy economy.

Key Topics discussed:

  • Discussion of the Impact of the Fed's Rapid Rate Increases on the Banking System
  • Impact of AI on the economy
  • The effects of inflation on the economy
  • Discussion of the Political Power Struggle in the US
  • Global debt is unsustainable with high interest rates and inflation.
  • Impact of Federal Reserve and Treasury policies on the economy

John Rubino is concerned that automation and government debt will lead to a collapse of the current system, and suggests that people should move their money into assets that cannot be inflated away. He also suggests shorting certain stocks and buying long-term options as a way to make money from the collapse. Kerry Lutz suggests using inverse ETFs and buying puts on the Housing Homebuilders ETF as other ways to make money. He also mentions a drug, Amg tide, that could help people with addictions to consumerism.

John Rubino and Kerry Lutz discuss the potential implications of a drug that could cure addiction, including the potential for a global depression, a universal basic income, and a civil war between the boomers and the millennials. They also discuss the Bilderberg Group and the possibility of Elon Musk being co-opted or assassinated.

John Rubino believes that leading economic indicators are flashing red, predicting a major recession coming, and that commercial real estate is a mess. He also believes that China's Belt and Road initiative has resulted in them taking over infrastructure in the developing world, and that the US has a history of exploitation and economic imperialism.

Debt limit drama is ridiculous. They do this every time. The ultimate Kabuki. The limit has been raised 78 times by both parties. 

Lots of signs of a slowing economy

-- Leading indicators index is in pre-recession territory.

-- Commercial real estate continues to crater.

-- Home sales are down 23% year over year. 

-- Home Depot just reported really bad numbers.

America just refuses to face reality and that means that the dollar will continue to lose value and more and more money will be tossed into the furnace. Politicians are much more willing to feed the inflation beast than they are to fix the underlying problem of out of control spending. And it's not a matter of parties. It's matter of always taking the easy way out. After all, in current day America, a politician's primary responsibility is to get reelected every 2-4-6 years  Until that changes, nothing else will change.

Wolf Richter summarizes that the economy is a mix of different sectors, with some doing well and some struggling. Consumers are still spending, but the banks are facing high interest rates and the commercial real estate sector is facing repurposing and foreclosure. The auto industry is seeing a decline in sales, but Tesla is still doing well.

Tesla is shaking up the auto industry by cutting prices and building production capacity in large amounts, forcing legacy automakers to compete on price. This is good for industrial America and consumers, but bad for automakers as sales of internal combustion engine vehicles are at levels not seen since the 1970s. Electric utilities are also benefiting from increased electricity sales.

Wolf Richter and Kerry Lutz discussed the current state of the financial system, with Wolf noting that the economy is adjusting to higher interest rates and that banks are struggling with them. They also discussed the possibility of the Federal Reserve cutting rates and the potential impact it would have. Wolf concluded that the economy will muddle through and that it will be many more years before autonomous driving is widely available.

Dana Samuelson, founder and president of American Gold Exchange, joined Kerry Lutz on the Financial Survival Network to discuss the current state of the gold market. He believes that gold is consolidating around the $2,000 mark and that the key to the gold market is the value of the dollar relative to other currencies. He believes that if the Fed is forced to pause, gold has the potential to increase by 10-15%. He also believes that the global debt crisis is unsustainable and will eventually lead to the devaluation of fiat currencies. He believes that gold is the currency of last resort and will be a great hedge against the loss of purchasing power of the dollar.
