Cryptos have become increasingly prevalent, but does this leave room for the precious metals? I sit down and talk to Joshua Scigala, who is very well versed in both digital and tangible modes of currency. Interestingly enough, Scigala says that the two can and should coexist. Fundamental changes in the banking system demand that we find new ways to cultivate value—this is where crypto becomes crucial. Tune in to hear about the interplay between differing currencies and how we can view them in sync.

-Cryptos have been very high—but the same is not the case for the precious metals
-What is the future of cryptos? It is extremely bright
-We have rare digital assets
-An unfortunate misunderstanding exists between gold and crypto enthusiasts
-Gold and crypto can work beautifully together
-Charging interest that doesn’t exist in the system is fundamentally corrupt
-Inflation steals everyone’s wealth
-The schooling system doesn’t address where money comes from, and the banking mechanism is fundamentally flawed
-There has been a fundamental change in what banking is
-Don’t fight the existing system; build something new
-Put your skepticism aside and consider whether the concept of a rare number could be real
-Digital files have never been good for anything rare
-Put a little bit of money in on a regular basis
-Governments will never completely agree on crypto

As our economy drifts into bankruptcy and financial crisis, we are experiencing a widespread loss of trust. I sit down and chat with John Rubino to dissect this, and it seems that we are within a system and cycle that isn’t working so well anymore. We discuss tax changes, healthcare issues, debt, and some of the factors that are ultimately creating a larger controversy.

-There has been a major loss of trust—people are perceiving things as either dishonesty or incompetence as we drift into bankruptcy and financial crisis
-Don’t try to change the system; leave it
-The US and Europe are tax havens in some areas
-New York is letting go 70,000 unvaccinated healthcare workers, which is going to create a massive shortage in healthcare workers
-When interest rates goes up, that means that market participants demand them to go up before lending money to anyone
-The yields on US government debts are starting to rise in response to inflation
-Other countries have to pay more to borrow—dollar denominated debt
-Many small problems will eventually create a larger energy crisis
-Energy and food are quite closely related
-Water is also skyrocketing in price—requires energy to get delivered to your home

Andy Schectman and I sit down to discuss the precious metals, inflation, and some of the recent shifts in the economy that have left people wondering what’s in store for us as a nation. It seems that transitory, in regard to inflation, has taken on a whole new meaning. We are not going to see inflation disappear eventually; rather, it is most likely structural, and will continue to increase. Furthermore, we look to the precious metals as a way to maintain a sense of privacy in a world where it seems to be dissipating—gold and silver seem to be the only dependable way to secure your wealth.

-The precious metal markets have not been behaving well—silver is under pressure right now
-Many things that are vitally important are not spoken about in the media; there’s a lack of honest reporting
-What does transitory even mean in light of the current inflation?
-The shift in inflation could be structural, and continue to increase
-The Chinese are on the path to taking over the reign of the economic powerhouse; wealth is moving eastward
-Our infrastructure bill will probably not even go towards infrastructure
-China is building relationships and assets that will allow them to transition
-The biggest thing in the tax bill is the proposal to monitor all gross in-flows and out0flows of money above $600 on all platforms (Venmo, PayPal, etc)
-Precious metals give a sense of privacy in a world where privacy seems to be dissipating
-The biggest problem will ultimately be people not being able to source anything
-There will most likely be higher premiums on gold and silver
-In regard to the supply chain, there are shortages of everything
-Keeping interest rates low is the only option
-You don’t buy gold and silver to get wealthy; it is wealth

Are you wondering where gold and silver prices are headed? In this episode I speak with David Erfle, who has been spot on about prices for a long time. In our conversation we break down some of the underlying factors that have affected prices—specifically corrections and the imminent quarter close. We also discuss inflation, which has played a large role in some of these fluctuations. Tune in to hear more from myself and Erfle, and get the full picture of what’s happening with the metals market.

-Where are gold and silver prices headed?
-David Erfle has been spot on about prices for a long time
-Perception is the buzz word with precious metals
-There could be a bounce before the quarter close—it’s over-sold on the short term
-Premiums have come down a bit, but in light of the last decline, they will probably shoot back up
-The stock market is due for a correction
-Gold stocks have gone from being hated, to investors being apathetic
-In instances like this, you want to still be leveraged with stocks and still have a large cash position
-The catalyst to push gold prices higher could be an official taper announcement at the next Fed meeting
-Gold price will get hit more with a mediocre NFP
-Everything is going up in price—commodities, natgas, etc.
-Real inflation is here to stay
-We are trying to solve a sovereign debt crisis with more debt
-Insurance is on sale; the insurance is gold

To catch up on economic trends, I sit down with Gordon T. Long and talk all things economy including the precious metals, inflation, and the supply chain. There are problems ahead as we have said before, and we’re seeing some of these now in equity markets.

Tune in to hear more from myself and Long about how these debacles came about, and what to expect in the coming months.

-What are the economic trends?
-Long states that there are problems ahead—we’re seeing these now in equity markets
-Silver is getting crushed; gold has hardly moved
-Silver is so prevalent in electronics
-Silver dropping means that there is a global growth concern since the dollar is spiking in parallel
-We are seeing a liquidity shock, global growth shock, supply shock/demand shock, and Chinese credit
-We are seeing higher commodity prices/higher consumer prices
-If all money is going into buying assets, it’s not turning money

Markets continue to fluctuate up and down, and in this episode I discuss these fluctuations with Gil Baumgarten. Baumgarten reassures us in saying that It is not good for money to only head in one direction—it’s vital for markets to take one step back so that true base value can be found and the market stays in sync.

-Markets are in flux—they tend to fluctuate up and down
-Are we having the much awaited correction? Will it become a crash?
-It’s not good for money to only head in one direction—it needs to shake from time to time so that true base value can be found. It’s like trimming the hedges in your yard; they come back healthier
-Every boom ends with a bust, but the marketplace typically takes four steps forward and one step back. The one step back keeps the market in sync
-There are a lot of negative trends occurring
-Biden inherited a booming market with full employment due to full taxation
-Should investors get rid of all their tech and move to energy?
-High energy prices are inevitable
-A lot of people are thinking that we are at the end of fossil fuel transportation
-Electric consumes fossil fuels too—just out of sight
-Perhaps we have an electric future, but it will not happen overnight
-Policies are hostile to US energy and consumption—which puts people at a disadvantage
-Deck-clearing events produce the opposite outcome in their wake

Do you ever wonder how Fortune 500 companies make billions of dollars but seem to not pay as much in taxes? I sit down and chat with Steve Moskowitz to discuss some of the ways that you can eliminate paying as much in taxes on your investments. Tax playing can especially be utilized in retirement accounts, and there are multiple benefits that come with them. Tune in to get tips from Steve himself and to start saving on your taxes.

-A lot of people wonder how companies make billions of dollars and don’t pay taxes—this has to do with tax playing
-If you’re a business or investor, you need to look at retirement accounts

Three benefits to retirement accounts:
1. You will get a big tax deduction
2. When investments earn money, they aren’t taxed the same as they would be in normal investment accounts
3. Special treatment within federal law

-If you go bankrupt, you keep 100% of your retirement account
-One lawsuit can wipe you out, but not if you’re an entity
-Some states allow you to set up multiple entities, but only pay one fee
-Set up a retirement account for the company managing your investments
-ERC - government stimulus program for employers (grant)

I sat down with Fury Gold Mines' Chair Ivan Bebek and new President/CEO Tim Clark for a sponsor update. Bebek heartily agrees with Rick Rule's prediction that 2022 will definitely be the year of the explorer. If they're right, then it could also be the year to be a Fury investor.

Clark explains that he was extremely fortunate to join and lead Fury's exemplary team; all it needed was a refocus on drilling. He has 23+ years of experience working on the finance side of the sector. Since joining, he has cut costs significantly to ensure that drilling dollars go even further. The team is driven to make a major discovery and thereby unlock Fury's value. 

A recent CAD $5 million private placement leaves the company in an excellent position to build upon already impressive drill results. Clark's extensive contacts with large institutional investors will help keep the money spigot open and flowing.  

Assay lab delays are still prevalent across the industry, and the company has a huge quantity of samples waiting to be evaluated. Eventually the backlog will ease and then the market will understand the success of the drill program. 

Bebek believes that the recently announced Angico Eagle-Kirkland merger is a sea change for the juniors. He points out that other large mergers in the past have set off similar cycles. This could be the spark that ignites a major round of merger and acquisition activity--and that could be very good news for Fury's shareholders.  (We own shares)

Should we be apprehensive about tax changes? Wayne Titus, a member of Savant Wealth Management, comes on the podcast to break down some of the shifts in taxes and what to expect. The tax reform act was passed back in 2017, and brought on many changes in tax brackets. If Congress doesn’t make any decisions, these brackets revert back to what they were in 2017. This is a long process which may not conclude this year—which can also make giving financial advice more complicated.

-Wayne recently joined Savant Wealth
-Should we be worried about tax changes? The tax reform act was passed back in 2017 and brought on a number of change in tax brackets. If nothing is done by Congress, those brackets revert back to what they were in 2017
-Most changes are not going to impact taxpayers (unless you earn $400k+). Thus, these changes affect businesses more.
-Our tax rate structure is progressive; the number sounds large, but the blended rate of tax makes it more rational
-Many other states besides California and New York are affected by some of these tax changes
-This is a long, drawn out process that may not conclude this year. A lack of solidified dates for changes makes it hard to make decisions in the financial sector
-Our legislative process is iterative

His company, Abernathy Holdings, focuses on development and vertical integration to maximize success and ensure that these investments make money back over time. Tune in to hear about this intriguing area of the industry and to hear about some of Abernathy’s methods.

-Storage units and warehouses are pretty low risk for investing, and they’ve developed over the years
-The business has become very complex and sophisticated
-Development and vertical integration are essential to making money in this sector
-It’s all about location—even if it means spending $10k-$20k extra

The economy is in a major decline, and today we have Darryl Schoon on the podcast to talk about some of the root causes of this phenomenon. Schoon walks us through different times in history that shed light on some of the underlying issues of inflation, and how this translates in the modern era. The inflationary bubble that we are in at the moment will eventually lead to a deflationary bust, and it is only a matter of time before we see some of the effects of this.

-The economy is crumbling—Evergrande is reminiscent of the 30s
-The economic tides and sands are shifting, and it’s going to take a lot to save it
-People know something is wrong, but they feel like it is beyond their capacity to do anything
-You don’t need to understand money, credit, or debt to be in harm’s way—you’ll be in it anyways
-There was historically a lot of silver circulating on the open market in the west, which was traded with China for porcelain, silver, and tea
-People called paper money ‘flying money’ because of how fast it came and went
-There is always an arbitrage somewhere
-When you’re so right for so long, it’s hard to tell when you’re wrong
-Gold used to be a religion for China—paper money leveraged debt and real estate
-Inflationary bubble will lead to a deflationary bust

It’s hard to know what exactly is happening in Florida real estate without talking to someone in the field. Today we have the founder of RealTrade, Ryan Poole, on the podcast to give us some insider knowledge on what is happening, and why real estate is booming so much—especially in South Florida as a result of the pandemic. Poole also tells us a bit about RealTrade, which is a platform that allows for communication between realtors, buyers, and sellers that enhances the realty experience.

-What’s happening with Florida real estate?
-Every county essentially has a different market
-2012: Florida was about to overtake New York as the third most populated state
-Things have heated up in the market over the last eight or nine months
-Especially since the pandemic, there has been a huge boom in real estate—clients are coming from all over
-Things staying open in Florida during the pandemic was a major attraction for buyers
-Florida has always been relatively cheaper
-There is not enough real estate to go around with the high volume of buyers—this also has caused prices to rise
-Prices in South Florida are still pretty attractive in comparison to the rest of the country
-South Florida is also becoming a financial epicenter, with the tech industry growing as well
-Florida is just one of the states people are running to—and one of the biggest
-Zillow doesn’t necessarily offer the most accurate information—a lot of baiting happens
-Agents work hard to get listings; Zillow gets this data and populates their platform with it
-Zillow owns 75% of the marketshare in terms of online presence
-Relators essentially end up working for Zillow
-RealTrade allows the realtors to own and manage the marketplace
-Agents network with one another to facilitate business, and buyers and sellers can also ask questions and contact realtors
-Waterfront properties in very high demand as well as golf course communities—we probably could see more rises in prices here

Today, I have John Rubino on the podcast to update us on all things economy: from real estate to the supply chain, we are seeing a lot of shifts and instabilities that have incurred over time. Evergrande seems to be bleeding over into the rest of China’s immense real estate sector—tampering with the industry as a whole. We also probe into the buying and selling of crypto, and determine that people are less optimistic about it which means we will most likely see an increased interest in gold.

-Evergrande is a large Chinese real estate developer. It has been borrowing large amounts of money for the last decade, and it has taken up large amounts of leverage
-Even higher prices, however, are not saving them—they’re giving cheap real estate to their creditors
-This is bleeding over into the rest of China’s immense real estate sector
-The fed is making noises about tapering—we start to see taper tantrums in this circumstance
-Gold is holding its own—it’s actually up a bit
-The supply chain is still in shambles
-We live beyond our means
-Cryptos are getting whacked—they are treated like tech stocks and are risk-on assets that you buy when you’re feeling optimistic
-Bitcoin is being sold off
-This is when gold takes off; the fed starts talking about tapering, which means that easy money will come to an end
-Lumber and iron ore have tanked lately, which means that the picture is getting mixed
-The global economy is slowing down

We currently see the precious metals getting slammed down in comparison to other commodities, which is an upsetting phenomenon for many investors. Today, we have Brian Leni on the show to talk about this and to re-emphasize the inherent value in the metals despite shifts in prices. Gold remains a critical asset when it comes to maintaining your wealth, and this becomes even more crucial as currencies err on the side of instability. Tune in to hear from myself and Leni about how to have confidence in your investments in a changing market, and to learn more about why these fluctuations are occurring.

-Precious metals have been mercilessly slammed down—the last time gold got slammed down like this was back in June
-To the amateur investor, this is an upsetting phenomenon. From a professional standpoint, this is also somewhat surprising given the current circumstances in the world
-Gold is the most important asset for one that wants to maintain their wealth
-Those that own it are glad they own it
-Debt keeps going up; government and currencies are becoming more unstable
-There has been lots of commodity price inflation with the exception of precious metals
-You buy gold and silver for insurance—to maintain your wealth
-You buy junior resource stocks because they are speculations of people and their ability to execute on action plans
-High gold/silver prices mean that financially and socially there are some bad things going on in the world
-Assay labs are taking longer than normal—sometimes having to travel lots of other places
-Everybody is drilling across the world, and assay labs may be restricted
-It’s hard when the market is imploding and people are impatient—but this presents opportunity
-Patience has to be part of your repertoire
-If you’re early to an investment, it’s going to be a while until its value is recognized, but this is where the big gains are
-If you’ve done research, you need to have confidence in your investment and see yourself through

We spoke with Gold Terra’s President/CEO David Suda for a sponsor update. The latest drill results were impressive with intersects of 11.2 g/t gold over 4.57 meters and 5.22 g/t over 17.86 meters in a “very strongly altered … portion of the Campbell Shear.” This marks the third drill result since April of this year, all showing high-grade gold. Suda is convinced that he’s onto something big. The adjacent Con mine produced 5 million ounces over its lifetime and he believes that they could easily be sitting on a similar scale deposit.

The most recent drill results were from a property optioned to the company by Newmont. Suda is of the opinion that they're closely following Gold Terra’s progress. This could bode well for the future.

While the market has generally met this news with indifference, Suda is optimistic that external factors will force the market to again focus on the sector. Gold Terra is trading at a substantial discount to its peers and there is hope that in the coming months, with more drill results on the way, that this gap will narrow dramatically.

Today we have Rob Kirby on the podcast, who talks about how one of the largest and most underreported issues is the volume of trade we’re experiencing in terms of dollar return in the crypto-verse. It seems that cryptos are eating off the dollar’s plate, which means that the crypto portion in international trade is rising…while the relevance of the dollar declines. Tune in to learn about the power of crypto and some of the key distinctions between Bitcoin and Ethereum that put banks and the law profession in an interesting position.

-The economic house of cards is crumbling all over
-The biggest and most underreported issue is the volume of trade we’re experiencing in terms of dollar return in the crypto-verse
-On a daily basis, the crypto-verse is turning over a minimum of $100 billion equivalent on average
-We're looking at $50 trillion dollar equivalent turnover in a year
-Cryptos are eating off the dollar’s plate, which means that cryptos are categorically being used in trade settlement right now
-Countries like Iran and Venezuela had to have it to where they could continue to trade without having to settle in dollars
-The crypto portion in international trade settlement is only going to increase from here, which means dollar relevance will decline
-Hyper-inflation and massive reduction in purchasing power of the dollar stock
-The whole nature of trade settlement is changing—less and less dollars are being used to settle international accounts. Thus, they get caught up in a Repo facility
-The inflation rate in our country is at 14%
-Ethereum is rising, and will perhaps eventually eclipse Bitcoin
-Bitcoin is the killer of banks; it’s a store of value
-Ethereum is the killer of the law practice
-Bitcoin is a challenge to bankers while Ethereum is a challenge to the law profession
-There is a place in the world for smart contracts as well as the traditional store of value—they can coexist

Should we ‘Eat The Rich?’ It seems that this is not necessarily a viable solution, and today we have Jeffrey Socha on the podcast to break down the new tax proposal for us. While it may seem logical to impose higher taxes on large businesses, same corporations have tactics they will use as a result—tactics that will only hurt consumers and the rest of the economy. Tune in to hear about this interesting phenomenon in light of recent announcements, and to find out where this may put you in terms of taxes.

-With the democrats’ new tax proposal, the effective tax rate in NYC will be close to 62%, and in California it will be around 59%

Real estate has been doing great where taxes are lower, and it seems that the stage of buying-panic has come to a close as purchasers stop over-paying quite as much for homes. Today we have Andrew Ragusa on the podcast to discuss what exactly is happening with the market, and what you can expect in the purchasing sector. He emphasizes that if people want to grab something, they should grab it, because the market is always climbing. Tune in for direct insights and interesting real estate considerations.

-Real estate has been at the right spot on the economy—where taxes are lower, real estate is doing better
-What’s happening with New York suburban real estate on Long Island? There has been a dip in offer prices—previously, they were getting $50k-$70k above asking price but this has declined a lot
-Buyers are not willing to over-pay quite as much; the panic is over
-If people want to grab something, they should grab it—mortgage payments are greatly impacted by the offer amount
-It doesn’t always make sense to stay on the sidelines when the market is always climbing
-We are seeing more price cuts in the market. In order for a house to move, the price still needs to look attractive
-There has been a lot of overshooting the market
-Even thought everything is selling, prices are getting cut
-Information on selling prices is widely available today through the internet
-Zillow charges realtors to receive information from those using the website; Zillow essentially sells data
-There’s not a lot of inventory at the moment in Florida

What’s happening in the markets, and should we be scared? It’s important to have an analytical perspective when it comes to analyzing the market, and Michael Moor comes on the show today to help us attain this point of view. He and I talk gas, oil, the metals, and Bitcoin from a data standpoint to break down what is happening in the changing market, and how we can assess these shifts from a data standpoint.

-What’s happening in the markets? Should we be scared? We need to take an analytical approach
-Are we looking at $10-$12 NatGas? Can we go that high? Moor says that we’re wide open—it can pretty much go anywhere
-We are still seeing a 50% discount of gas to oil
-$56/barrel could be seen in five months
-Moor analyzes market movements and data, but Moor notes the inflation in the housing market and supply chain
-Everything is pointing to increased inflationary expectations
-What markets are the most promising? Moor thinks that crude oil and energies have a lot of upside
-Bitcoin also is looking positive—it’s all pretty green
-Gold is headed higher—we’re seeing some of its strength coming in right now
-We used to look at crude oil as an indicator of inflation, but NatGas has taken over

Every commodity seems to be up substantially with the exception of Gold, Silver, and Platinum. Today, we have Jordan Roy-Byrne on the podcast to talk about this interesting phenomenon. Gold and Silver peaked before everything else, and their performance is ultimately linked to inflation—which is higher than ever at the moment. Tune in to get interesting insight and predictions on this topic, and to hear us break down what’s happening with inflation and the metals.

-Every commodity is up substantially (i.e. natural gas, uranium)
-Everything but Gold, Silver, and Platinum is going up
-Gold tends to lead everything in the commodity world, and Silver tends to follow
-When commodity prices spike or have big moves, they tend to correct
-Gold and Silver peaked before everything else—before Uranium stocks even started to move
-The market is not anticipating that inflation is going to accelerate
-Real rates have nowhere to go but up
-The market is saying that the rate of inflation has peaked, and that it’s going to come down a bit
-We’re having as much as 14% inflation right now by some accounts—the biggest inflationary rate since WWII
-Inflation can be very volatile and move a lot in both directions
-If Gold and Silver start out-performing, that will indicate that inflation is here to stay and we could transition into a state of stagflation
-Would the fed risk a crash to assert itself over the markets? The fed will ultimately follow the market
-15-20% decline/correction is more probable than a crash
-Crashes do not happen very often
