Episode Description

Alasdair Macleod and Eric Coffin return. A Minsky Moment is a sudden major collapse of asset values, which is part of the credit cycle. This radio show has no shortage of doom and gloom guests, some of which are high profile but not one of them carry as much weight as an institution like Morgan Stanley who is suggesting China may very well face their Minsky Moment, not unlike the one the U.S. faced in 2008. Alasdair Macleod will talk about malinvestment in China, which comes along with excessive debt money creation and what the possible impact will be on gold. Recent weakness in copper and iron ore prices is reportedly a result of a decline in credit creation in China. In light of the China story, we will ask Eric Coffin to comment on a copper company or two that can weather a worst case scenario for copper and also ask him for a couple of his top picks among gold exploration companies. Time permitting, your host will also comment on one or two of his top picks.

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.
