    Off The Cuff: When The Game Of Musical Chairs Ends

    There are WAY too many who expect they can exit unscathed

    In this week’s Off The Cuff I sit down with Jeff Clark to discuss:

    • The fallacy hedge funds are operating under
    • The silver squeeze: what’s happening now?
    • The status of the PM mining industry
    • Jeff shares a mining stock he particularly likes right now

    Right now the market is full of investors (= speculators) who are committed to “dancing while the music is playing”.

    When asked about the current concerning and historic levels of (over)valuation, they reveal their strategy is to be one of the first out of the door when the music stops. They ignore, of course, that mathematically EVERYONE can’t be the first.

    Jeff Clark, GoldSilver.com’s senior analyst, sees this and many other familiar echoes of the irrational exuberance that existed right up until the system broke in 2008, ushering in the Great Financial Crisis.

    And while history may not repeat exactly, it often does rhyme. Jeff shares with us his predictions going forward for the markets, the precious metals, and the PM mining industry:

    Off The Cuff: Defending Against Fiat Currency’s Demise

    Addressing the hard choices forced by the 'Everything Bubble'
    by Adam Taggart

    In this week’s Off The Cuff I sit down with John Rubino to discuss:

    • Why the #silversqueeze still matters
    • The massive remaining upside for precious metals
    • Why the ‘Everything Bubble’ is our most complicated crisis ever
    • Steps investors can take to defend against the demise of fiat currencies

    Despite #silversqueeze being little more than a flash in the pan media-wise, it’s lasting implications are proving quite substantial.

    Retail silver inventory remains exceptionally tight, and premiums remain very high. While the Reddit-sources buyers came and went quickly, the hoopla brought the topic of sound money to many new ears, and precious metals dealers are still seeing a sustained influx of first-time purchases from new buyers who have decided that adding a little gold and silver to their portfolios is a wise move.

    This shift in market sentiment towards bullion, especially silver, is helping set the stage for a potentially serious supply shortage ahead should another buying blitz occur.

    Of course, the arguments for owning bullion are driven by the dynamics of the Everything Bubble the world now finds itself in, where global fiat currencies are being rapidly devalued in a futile attempt to keep the system from collapsing.

    So the endgame looks clearly like a currency crisis — meaning you want to be positioned in assets that will survive inflation. Of course, should the markets correct substantially on the path there (as venerated experts like Jeremy Grantham are warning could happen within the next few months), cash would be a safe place to be when that happens.

    How can today’s investors resolve those two opposing — yet both intelligent — strategies?

    If you’re concerned about the overreach of government in juicing asset prices to dangerous levels, picking economic winner and losers, and constraining our personal freedoms — you have very good right to be.

    So says lifelong champion of free markets, sound money and civil liberty, former US Congressman Dr Ron Paul.

    It’s investment-grade gold jewelry that looks like any other necklace or bracelet to a border officer or fellow traveler—but to you, it’s a portable store of wealth.

    The trajectory of nearly every facet of our way of life shifted massively

    The year 1971 saw the trajectories of nearly every major trend relative to our way of life shift massively.

    This week’s guest experts, Ben Prentice and Collin, founders of WTFHappenedIn1971.com, explain how virtually all of these changes are a direct or indirect result of the monetary system “breaking” that year with the Nixon Shock and the end of the Bretton Woods System.

    Is High Inflation Now A Bigger Danger Than A Deflationary Crash?

    Is High Inflation Now A Bigger Danger Than A Deflationary Crash?

    What’s the more likely event at this point: a deflationary crash or runaway inflation?

    For a long time, Peak Prosperity co-founder Adam Taggart and I have hewed to the “Ka-POOM!” theory, which states that a major deflation will scare the central banks so badly that they overreact and pour too much liquidity into the system, thereby destroying it.
