Michael Oliver and Rev. Larry Beane join host Jay Taylor on the last show of Turning Hard Times to Good Times at the Voice America Business Channel. Interviews covering similar themes and guests will be available at JayTaylorMedia.com and at YouTube.com/jaytaylormedia channel every Wednesdays at 3:00 PM ET, starting January 25. The United States expended enormous amounts of blood and treasury to defeat two hellish dictatorships in the 20th century, those being Hitler’s Nazi Germany in World War II and the Marxist dictatorship of the Soviet Union in the Cold War. We thought we defeated the enemy but, lo and behold, “we have met the enemy and he is us.” As Marcus Tullius Cicero said in 58 BC, “A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.” Gradually the Father of Lies, who is not a human but a spiritual being has snuffed out the light of truth and a desire to know the truth. This traitor from within has weaseled his ways into the hearts and minds of Americans telling us to trust deceptive world leaders who wish to declare themselves in charge of the Universe rather than the God who triggered all of Creation some 14+ billion years ago. Michael Oliver will provide his usual market wisdom to us but he will also share some insights from his book, “The New Libertarianism: Anarcho-Capitalism” to explain how intervention into free markets is leading America toward the same kind of dictatorship that has been far more common than not throughout history. Cicero understood that a “baseness lies deep in the hearts of all men” triggered by the “traitor.” Rev. Beane will help us learn how we can “avoid the traitor” and in so doing enable each of us to live free and joyful lives no matter what darkness may lie ahead in a world seemingly going mad. Michael will talk about his usual findings about what the market is doing and direction he thinks the market is taking.

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.
