Janet Yellen and the FED are giving a very confused message to the markets. Janet Yellen sounds like she wants to raise interest rates but she wants to wait for data to confirm it while other dovish FED governors want to raise interest rates in September. Anytime any of these FED governors speak, it’s what completely moves the market and causes a massive sell off on WallStreet and in the precious metals market. The market fears an end to easy money but increasing interest rates is what should have happened years ago!  This is why our economy is not recovering and it’s actually these low interest rates that will lead to a massive bust, in the economy, that will be much worse than 2008!  Hold on to your hats ladies and gentleman because this is going to be a wild ride!

James Grant, in a recent interview, discusses what he sees going on in the U.S. economy. James makes the point that in 5,000 years of world history negative interest rates have never happened before!  This is how absurd negative interest rates are!  This is the end game before the entire global economy unfolds and leads to a massive collapse. Having all of your assets denominated in a fiat currency like the U.S. Dollar is a very risky move. James Grant is a legend and his views on the economy definitely confirms the views that have been discussed on this show since it began.  You don’t want to miss this episode to hear what James Grant says and here’s a link to this very interview. http://www.fuw.ch/article/the-fed-is-now-hostage-to-wall-street/

Janet Yellen’s recent comments at Jackson Hole on August 26th are really much of the same stuff.  There is a few things in Yellen’s speech that are quite revealing. Yellen suggested that QE4 (more money printing) is on the table and even negative interest rates!  Yes, Janet Yellen makes a comment saying rates you should have went negative in response to the housing crisis in 2008!  Negative interest rates seem to be the last resort effort by central banks to keep things under control.  This seems to be the end of the road and it’s not going to end well. Prepare yourself now while you still can!

This question sounds crazy but, should we legalize insider trading?  As crazy as this may sound, legalizing insider trading is the right thing to do. Today, insider trading is considered a criminal act, why is this? It’s a victimless crime!  If you’re the CEO of some company and you leak out information against your contract or your fiduciary duty then that’s a civil case with the company you work for. If we want prices to reflect the most accurate and up to the minute information then we need to legalize insider trading!  Having insider trading illegal doesn’t level the playing field like most believe, it actually does the exact opposite. We have enough government laws as is and law enforcement can’t keep up with those!  Lets legalize insider trading so law enforcement can go after actual criminals with their very limited resources!

The economy is not strong like the “experts” out there have led us to believe. Quarter 2 GDP came in at 1.2% when the Atlanta FED was predicting 2.4% GDP growth!  That’s a big miss!  And under Obama’s presidency we haven’t seen one year over 3% GDP growth and this is unprecedented in modern American history!  We have had interest rates near 0% for Obama’s entire presidency because this was supposed to stimulate the economy and it has done nothing of the sort!  Now countries around the world are engaged in negative interest rates to “stimulate” the economy!  Ladies and gentleman, we are at the end game of this monetary experiment and it doesn’t end well!

Interest rates have been near 0% for almost eight years now and we have printed trillions of dollars into the economy since 2008!  Negative interest rates are happening all over the world… What does all this really mean!? Where is the U.S. economy going? Are we really in a recovery like Federal Reserve Chairwoman Janet Yellen says? Is gold a good place to put money even after the 25% rally just this year?  Don’t miss this panel discussion with top Austrian economists from FreedomFest 2016 where these questions and more are answered!


FreedomFest was an absolutely fantastic event. If you didn’t make it this year you missed out!  So many fantastic speakers and debates and all the biggest names in the liberty movement were there. Going to events like this shows us there’s a reason to be optimistic. Just look at all the talent we have on the libertarian side. We may be small in number but we are extremely effective and some of the smartest guys alive today are libertarian! You really don’t want to miss out on this event next year and I will tell you how to safe a bunch of money if you do decide to attend.

Alan Greenspan recently sat down for a 30 minute interview on Bloomberg TV and what he said in that interview is shocking for a former Federal Reserve chairman to say. A few of the shocking statements Greenspan says are played on this episode. Greenspan sees inflation coming our way and he says just way, it’s coming! Alan Greenspan even says we should return to a gold standard and that our country experienced the most prosperity when we were on the classic gold standard from 1870-1913. For those of you who sense that many things are wrong in this economy and that things are about to get much worse, this episode confirms those beliefs with some astonishing facts you won’t find in the mainstream media anywhere! You need to buy gold and silver now!

Since 1990, $20 billion of tax payer dollars has been spent on sports stadiums! Why on God’s green earth are taxpayers subsidizing stadiums for billionaires!? Unfortunately, this is only one small example of our hard earned money being pissed down the drain. Supply-side economics really focuses on reducing tax rates which is great, but they go astray when they do this so they can increase revenues to the government. We shouldn’t be trying to increase revenues to the government at all! Rather, we should be trying to reduce taxes enough so revenues to the government actually shrink! Any money the government takes via taxes they spend that and some so lets starve the beast!


So with Britain deciding to leave the EU what does this mean? Will this lead to a collapse of the European Union as more states decide to opt out? There’s a lot of uncertainty out there and the markets have reflected that since the Brexit vote took place. The Brexit vote really shows how people all over the world are unhappy and are losing confidence in the system! Look no further than Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders in the United States and again, those are people unhappy with the system and the elites in charge today! There’s a feeling of revolution out there and Brexit is just a sign of that. How many more cracks will we see before the global economy comes crashing down?
