Recent Media Appearances - August 2011

Thursday, August 25, 2011, 1:32 PM

With renewed economic slowdown, resurgent banking crises around the globe, and increasing financial market turbulence, August has been a busy month. Media requests for Chris' insights have picked up and I thought I'd share some of the more recent ones here for those who have yet to see them.

These four provide a good update on where Chris sees us on the timeline of developments put forth by the Crash Course

Financial Sense Newshour

Here's an interview between Chris and Jim Puplava on August 9th. In it, Chris makes the case we're heading into another fiscal crisis which risks sparking a larger monetary crisis, and explains why he sees higher gold prices ahead (NB: while gold did surge nearly $300/oz after this interview, he was taking a longer term view)

Kaiser Report

Today, Max Keiser released a video of him and Chris discussing the growing banking crisis and why it will unfold differently than that of 2008 (Chris' segment starts at 14m:20s):

McAlvany Weekly Commentary

On August 2nd, Chris joined David McAlvany for a deep exploration of exponential trends and how they are determining the future we're entering as a global society. This is a great revisitation of the core concepts behind the Crash Course framework, including an engaging discussion of the difference between growth and prosperity.

The Extraenvironmentalist

In July, Chris gave an interview to the guys at The Extraenvironmentalist, a podcast that targets a younger audience and attempts to make sense of the world they're inherting.

We continue to work hard to get the message out while there's still time left for prudent preparation. If you have any media contacts to send our way - please do so! Just email [email protected]

We'll keep you posted of more of Chris' appearances as they happen.

cheers,

Adam

Great Segments

These are all well worth listening.  Thanks for providing them on line.  I especially recommend the Extra Environmentalist for young people ... anyone adult or older ... as in my 16-year-old son.

Hugs ... dons

On the streets.

Word on the street is that the Oil shortage is manipulated by the greedy Oil companies. All we need is pitchforks and force them to increase production.

Isn't that one of the sceanarios from Ayn Rand's "Atlas Shrugged"? It all seems awefully familiar. Perhaps some Hollywood potboiler?

In any case the Empire has used it's pitchforks ineffectually against the Oil states (Iraq) already. (Silly me, that was about weapons of mass destructions, or something.)

Ah Ha?

The second problem for central banks is that if they print money, they end up devaluing the debt they are holding.

With knotted brow I read through this article until I came to the above 

No money printing and evaporating debt means deflation.

Empathy for the doomed.

Prof Steve Keen debates population in Australia.

The video is a bit dreary so only watch it if you are of a mind.

My own thoughts on the subject are that the bomb is baked in the cake. We are going to have to do triage, which is a whole lot of fun.

Look to your laurels and your genes, friends.

Speaking of which we find that non Africans bred with H. Neanderthalis. I shall spruik up the fact that we had bigger brains than Sap.

showing that they had brains as large as modern humans' at birth and larger than modern humans' as adults.

This brain thinks that the only thing brains do is think. If H. Neandertal had a bigger brain, he needed it.

Reading "The Histories" by Herodotus I am of a mind that our mental capacities have regressed.

Hmm, the latest episode of MI-5 on PBS (a BBC series) had genetic warfare as the McGuffin. There has been little in the media about genetic warfare, which as a geneticist I feel is the ultimate perversion of our profession. I'm not as certain as the MI-5 episode that it won't work.
