Jay Taylor: Turning Hard Times Into Good Times
America's Decline, the Dollar and Gold
Jay Taylor's, miningstocks.com, guests for this weeks’s broadcast include: William Engdahl and Michael Oliver. Brandon Macdonald visits for the first time. The “deep state” and its propaganda deprive Americans of the real reason we spend blood and treasury on unending foreign wars. Enabling the U.S. Empire to expand post WWII was the forced acceptance of a post 1971 fraudulent dollar. America could print endless amounts of intrinsically worthless money out of thin air and use it to fund a military that punished any leader who refused to accept dollar payments. But Russia, China and its allies who are seeking a peaceful economic coexistence with Washington, won’t go down easily. Oliver's work shows the dollar decline is now underway. As the dollar loses its hegemony, what will that mean for commodity prices? Engdahl will opine on relevant geopolitical factors. Oliver will update us on the dollar and gold, and Brandon will tell us about a very promising zinc-lead-silver discovery in the Yukon.

Whoever Has the Gold, Makes the Rules



John Ing,
Maison Placements Canada:

Fake news. Governments do it; bankers spread it; journalists create it. Gold, however tells the truth. The free market price of gold has reversed its downtrend, while the greenback has sunk in a significant realignment between gold and the dollar. Gold is an alternative investment to the dollar.

Gold: Plan B
