Are We Nearing a “Crack-up Boom?”
June 14, 2022
Hosted by Jay Taylor
Alasdair Macleod, John Rubino & Quinton Hennigh are this week’s guests. Recently, Doug Noland, the portfolio manager for the McAlvany Management Tactical Short fund, wrote the following: “History suggests today’s festering issues in credit derivatives and structured finance will prove woefully worse than anyone today appreciates. And there is little policymakers can do to remedy the situation. The cycle has changed. The amount of stimulus necessary to one more time resuscitate Bubble Dynamics would risk hyperinflation.” But what needs to be understood is that inflation is not rising prices but rather it is diminishing the purchasing power of the currency and bank deposits. In a world awash with currency and bank deposits, the real concern is the increasing desire of economic actors to reduce these balances in favor of an increase in their ownership of physical assets and goods. As the crisis unfolds, we can expect increasing numbers of the public to attempt to reduce their cash and bank deposits with catastrophic consequences for their currencies’ purchasing power. The most logical physical monetary asset to flee to is gold because that monetary metal is widely accepted and it provides portability of wealth. Alasdair will help us understand what our policy makers do not understand and that is how America has arrived at this horrific financial state and how you can best prepare for the massive difficulties that lie ahead. While physical possession of gold is a starting point, another possible enriching asset to own is equity in companies that produce gold, a universally accepted monetary metal. Quinton will update us on one company that appears to be on the cusp of a gigantic high grade gold deposit, namely Lion One Metals, with its Tuvatu gold deposit in Fiji.

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.
