How Will a Bankrupt America Fund Socialism?
October 26, 2021
Hosted by Jay Taylor
Alasdair Macleod, Patrick Highsmith and Michael Oliver return. The U.S. has three categories of buyers for U.S. Federal debt: the financial and non-financial private sector, foreigners, and the Fed. The banks in the financial sector have limited capacity to expand bank credit and American consumers are being encouraged to spend, not save. Except for a few governments, foreigners are already reducing their proportion of outstanding federal debt and there is every reason to believe that trend will likely accelerate as they suffer losses from plunging bond prices in an inflation-driven, rising-yield environment. With that, dollar hegemony will be threatened. That leaves the Fed. But the Fed recently committed to taper quantitative easing and it cannot be seen to directly monetize government debt. Meantime, the Biden Administration is pushing as hard as they can to spend endless trillions of more dollars in power-grabbing, give-away schemes, The Fed will be faced with a bad choice: protect financial asset values and not the dollar, or protect the dollar rrespectively of the consequences for financial asset values. The financial carnage from either inflation or deflation appears unfathomably large. We can think of no asset better than gold to hold purchasing power value in either financial extreme. Patrick will update us on Firefox Gold’s exciting high grade gold exploration program in Finland and Michael will update us on his latest views on key markets.

Jay Taylor has been able to more than double his newsletter’s model portfolio from 2000 to the present even as the S&P 500 was in the process of losing 50% of its value!
The insights provided to Jay came from a history professor in 1967 who advised Jay that when countries go off a gold or silver standard, hard economic times are sure to follow because nations begin to think they do not need to work hard and save to enjoy a better life. Indeed there is no free lunch and a gold standard reminds people of that every day.
Jay watched his professor’s prophetic words come true when in 1971, President Nixon completely detached the dollar from gold. Not surprising to Jay, the price of gold skyrocketed in the late 1970s as inflation wiped out vast amounts of wealth from average Americans. To protect his own wealth Jay began to invest in gold and gold mining shares and in 1981 he began sharing his success and insights in his newsletter. In 1981 Jay began writing a subscription newsletter that has earned his subscribers countless thousands of dollars over the years.
Jay’s insights as to the real cause of our problems has enabled him to find investment strategies that work. Diagnose a problem correctly and you have a chance for success. Diagnose a problem incorrectly as the establishment does and you are sure to fail.
