A View of South African Mine Violence from Inside the Cannibal’s Pot
August 28, 2012
Hosted by Jay Taylor
Ilana Mercer is back to explain why S. African police killed 34 miners and injured more at a S.African platinum mine. Ilana’s book, “Into the Cannibal’s Pot” provides great insights into the connection between an increasingly brutal and violent culture and the removal of property rights in the post-apartheid, multi-cultural South Africa. Unfortunately, the psychological and cultural dynamics of socialism transcends race and nations. When the state takes property from its citizens it's step one toward taking away their very lives. Why did a strike turn violent? Is this an isolated case or should we expect more? What does this mean for the precious metals production from S. Africa? Also joining me will be Barry Downs, a former S. Africa mine investor who will share his views on South Africa as well as his fears of an impending global deflationary depression. Hopefully, painting a brighter picture will be Chris Cooper, CEO of a growing Canadian oil and gas producer, namely Aroway Energy.

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.
