Has Capitalism Failed?
January 11, 2022
Hosted by Jay Taylor
Doug Casey, Chen Lin and Dr. Quinton Hennigh return. Not only rhetoric but policies of the Biden Administration look more akin to those of fascist and/or communist dictatorships than a free market capitalist system. While America never had a perfectly free market capitalist system, thanks to both Republican and Democrat parties, it is now hard to discern economic policies much different from fascist and communist governments as our choice to engage in commerce is increasingly regulated by big government. Nor do Americans seem to care much about civil liberties as evidenced by the demolition of our First Amendment rights through Big Tech censorship aimed at giving in to the Democrat party dictatorial power. As the middle class dwindles and the top 1% own nearly all of America’s wealth, the middle class is rapidly moving toward abject poverty as stimulus checks from “Uncle Joe” are quickly losing value thanks to QE programs, one after another. Yet Americans who vote on either side of the isle tend to make their decisions not on the basis of classical logic but on emotions. Doug will help us ferret out what has led to a decline in America’s living standards. Is it the capitalist system that has failed or is it the fault of the politicians that simply pulled the stable construct of capitalism out from under its foundation? I look forward to Doug’s answers to those questions as well as where he thinks the world is heading to and how you should prepare. Quinton will update us on the progress Lion One Metals as it moves toward test mining its high-grade alkaline gold deposit in Fiji. Chen will share his thoughts about 2022 as we start the new year and offer some investment suggestions in the biotech and gold mining sectors.

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.
