2010 Television/Online Video Appearances By Chris Martenson


On The Edge with Max Keiser (11/13/2010)

Chris was recently interviewed by Max Keiser for his On The Edge program. The videos of this discussion were released over the weekend and are available for viewing below.

The interview starts with a look at the extreme debt levels of OECD nations and the probable (and painful) repercussions they will have for the global economy. Chris spends time explaining the contradiction of how, even though we're now 'technically' experiencing deflation as this debt is being unwound, prices are rising – due to growing loss of faith in the underlying fiat currencies.



The looming Peak Oil crisis is also a major topic. Chris reiterates his concerns that the US and most other governments appear completely unprepared for a liquid fuel emergency. Reactively creating our national response on the fly will likely initially result in rationing, followed by greater market and social chaos. 

Max presses for a timeline on the arrival of Peak Oil and Chris maintains his 2014 prediction, offering recent data that bolster the argument that the peak is imminent, if not already upon us. Both agree that a systemic breakdown caused by this crisis will play out, whenever it arrives, much faster than people expect. 


Talk Radio Europe (11/3/2010)

Earlier this week, Chris was invited to appear on Talk Radio Europe, the largest English-speaking radio station in continental Europe. A podcast of the interview has just been made available, which you can listen to by clicking here or on the image below:

The discussion focused heavily on the looming Peak Oil crisis, with a particular slant on implications for the European countries. The subject matter resonated with the host, Richie Allen, particularly because he's now beginning to hear related sentiment echoed by a small but growing number of concerned European economists.


 Chris on Financial Sense: Preparing for Peak Oil (11/2/2010)

Chris' latest interview on Financial Sense is now available. It's a 23-minute podcast that can be listened to by clicking here or on the image below:

Chris and host Jim Puplava discuss the ramifications of Peak Oil on society – basically, essential systems we depend on will start malfunctioning – then dive deeper into specific steps individuals can take in preparation.

Chris on Yahoo! Finance: The Wisdom of Owning "Things" vs "Paper" (10/14/2010)

Last week, Chris traveled to New York City for his second appearance on Yahoo! Finance's Tech Ticker. 

Chris joined host Aaron Task in Tech Ticker's Nasdaq studio to discuss his latest outlook on the 'Three Es,' namely that the fast-approaching arrival of Peak Oil and shortages of other key natural resources is going to put the breaks on global economic growth.

In World Without Growth, Buy "Water, Food and Warmth", Chris Martenson Says


Interview with the Survival Podcast (9/21/11)

Interviewed by Jack Spirko of The Survival Podcast. We had a meaty exploration of the core tenets of the Three Es in light of recent developments, then delved pretty deeply into strategies for building personal resilience, which is the main focus of Jack's regular podcasts. I enjoyed myself and think the discussion is worth listening to.

The podcast of our interview is now posted on TSP. Click here to listen to it.
