    Wall Street’s Watchdog Speaks - Chris Markowski #5618

    Summary:
    Chris Markowski—AKA Wall Street’s Watchdog—has some criticism for the Fed, and comes on the show to talk about what they’re doing wrong at the moment. A lot of the conventional wisdom that is being taught about the Fed needs to be re-evaluated; there are a myriad of solutions for the current economic problems that go beyond our conventional perception of the Fed’s role/power. Nonetheless, there is a lot to be taken advantage of right now from an investing standpoint, and Chris names some assets and ventures to keep your eye on.
    Highlights:
    -Inflation is not transitory. Additionally, the Fed had raised rates slightly last year or cut back on bond buying, the situation could be different
    -Markets got crunched this year
    -The concept that the Fed is going to be able to solve this is just one part of the solution—things can be fixed in a myriad of ways
    -We don’t have enough resources for things like alternative energy
    -A lot of this inflation is self inflicted
    -Many recessions in the past haven’t been named recessions until later, but we’re currently seeing slowed economic activity on numerous fronts
    -As an investor, there’s a lot you can take advantage of
    -Chris gets nervous when markets are rapidly going up
    -It’s all about quality and companies that pay you to own them
    -Uranium and lithium need to be part of your portfolio
    -Many commodities across the board are starting to come down

    Europe’s Implosion Gaining Steam - John Rubino #5615

    Europe’s Implosion Gaining Steam - John Rubino #5615

    Summary:
    An election took place in Italy that could change things, and the Euro has been sinking like a stone…What’s in store for Europe? I sit down and chat with John Rubino to discuss the European economy. Their energy system has taken a turn for the worse, and their currency problems cannot be fixed with with monetary policy. They will inevitably have to tighten, as inflation and broken supply chains cannot be fixed with easy money. Tune in for more insight on what’s to come for Europe.
    Highlights:
    -The dollar is strong—which is the flip-side of this situation
    -Europe has screwed up their energy system and is trying to run a modern economy on ancient energy resources
    -There was a major drop in Pound Sterling
    -There’s not obvious end to this. They have to borrow money to cut taxes, as well—which means creating more currency
    -The Euro is below the dollar now
    -Europe’s mistakes cannot be fixed with monetary policy, but they’re going to have to tighten
    -Inflation and broken supply chains cannot be fixed with easy money, so the central banks are stuck
    -With alternative energy (especially electric cars) there are many considerations that come with transitioning to these sources
    -Houses were very inexpensive 2 years ago, and now they’re unaffordable. If nobody can afford houses, nobody can buy houses. We will probably see a big crash in home sales
    -Tightening is going to have to go on longer, but most places you look, inflation has dissolved
    -Many effects of inflation are going to be with us for years
    -Tens of trillions of dollars are evaporating from the portfolios of the billionaire class
    -In the end, the system works for the people with the money
    -The federal reserve wasn’t just set up by the banks; it is owned by the banks

    Buy Gold and Silver and Don’t Worry - Todd “Bubba” Horwitz #5614

    Summary:
    Gold and silver prices have gotten beaten up in the last few days/months. What is the reason for this? Todd “Bubba” Horwitz comes on the show to bring us up to speed with the precious metals, and emphasizes that we are not in the idea situation for gold at the moment. He advises buying it—but not with leveraged money. Moreover, it’s most crucial to focus on your own portfolio right now rather than getting lost in what’s happening with the rest of the markets. Tune in for more insight.
    Highlights:
    -Most investors try to make a winner out of a loser
    -We have dramatic inflation and the dollar is exploding, but this isn’t the idea situation for gold
    -It’s important, however, to focus on your own portfolio/finances. Not being a loser makes you a winner
    -We’re coming into a major food shortage in the U.S. There are already food riots in the Middle East
    -Food shortage has been underplayed/underreported in China. They now can’t buy enough food
    -Todd believes in buying physical gold—as long as you’re not buying it with leveraged money
    -Everyone should own a portion of precious metals—but not paper ones
    -You lose your freedom if you become a victim of market volatility
