Shanghai Gold Hoard Will Shock Everyone | Francis Hunt

Francis Hunt, The Market Sniper, joins us to discuss how gold confiscation may come about. Does the fact that gold confiscation may happen mean people shouldn't invest in gold? Hunt says the possibility should not discourage people, but people should instead consider diversification, especially geographic diversification.

The Calm Before The STORM | Andy Schectman

Andy Schectman, CEO & president of Miles Franklin, joins us to discuss the current state of the financial system. He notes the public's concern about the banking system has died down, but the problems are far from over.

Gold Confiscation To Protect The Dollar? | Doomberg

If the BRICS nations back their new reserve currency in part or whole in gold, then the US could move to confiscate the yellow metal to protect the dollar.

Silver, however, since it is an industrial metal, is less likely to be confiscated.

Bullion Banks Forced To Cover Shorts? | Alasdair Macleod

Bullion banks are likely extremely net-short at the moment. Typically, this short position would signal lower prices ahead.

Temporary Default = The Whole System Collapse? | Rafi Farber

Rafi Farber joins us to discuss the debt ceiling. He says if a U.S. defaults - even a temporary one - would jeopardize the whole system. The system is so fragile that any of a number of things could take it down, he says. What new monetary system would rise out of the ashes of the current system?
