    Two years ago, we interviewed Kirk Sorensen about the potential for thorium to offer humanity a safe, cheap and abundant source of energy.

    Kirk returns this week to relay what has happened in the thorium space since our last conversation. The East, most notably China, is now fully-mobilized around getting its first reactor operational by as soon as 2020. If indeed thorium reactors are as successful as hoped, the US will find itself playing catch up against countries who suddenly hold a tremendous technology advantage:

    James Dines: Owning ‘Wealth In The Ground’ Is Your Best Bet to Surviving the Coming ‘Supernova of Inflations’

    James Dines has been in the business of making bold calls for over 50 years. In this deep-diving interview, he minces no words about the dire risks the US economy – and the world at large – faces at this juncture.

    Simply put, he sees the excessive credit in the financial system as having placed the global economy on a collision-course with hyperinflation.

    Unlike past periods of turmoil, there are no truly ‘safe’ places for investment capital to hide. Geographic markets and almost all asset classes are positively correlated these days. They share many of the same risks and if a systemic crash occurs, they will crash together.

    Recently, we crossed the seven billion threshold for humans on the planet. Most of these people are desperately trying to get up the living standard curve. And that requires resources.

    Simple math tells us there is going to be increasing competition for a steadily dwindling — in both quantity and quality — global pool of high-grade resources. This ‘scramble for stuff’ is going to be one of the key defining trends of this century. And while it will have game-changing repercussions across societies, economies, and geopolitics — we are at a moment in time where tremendous upside awaits investors who recognize today the true future value of key resources and secure meaningful exposure to them.

    Rick Rule has made a successful and storied career as a resource investor, and has rarely seen as attractive an alignment for the space as he does today. What is there to be so optimistic about?

    A new Martenson Report is ready for enrolled members.
    Link – Growth and the Upcoming Iranian War

    Executive Summary

    • A war with Iran seems likely before the US elections in November.
    • The US has committed an act of war in deciding to embargo Iranian fuel shipments and international financial activities.
    • The “urgency for dealing with Iran” is driven more by oil competition than military crisis.
    • The US militarily occupies or diplomatically controls every strategically-located oil producer in the Middle East except for Iran.
    • The most probable explanation for the sudden concern about Iran is likely centered over energy and the ‘requirement’ of growth that our economic and financial systems demand.
    • Seeking militarily-secured access to oil halfway around the world is a weak strategy.
    • An Iranian war has the potential to severely disrupt developed economies due to another wild oil-price spike.

    A new Martenson Report is ready for enrolled members.
    Link:  Year of the Tiger

    Executive Summary

    • China is pursuing an active policy of resource mercantilism.
    • China appears to be strategically preparing for resource scarcity.
    • China’s auto sales have surpassed those of the US.
    • This year China also edged out Germany as the top exporter.
    • As China’s economy expands, its energy use increases.
    • The US should be stewarding its remaining resources and transitioning deliberately to a very different economic model, but instead we are wasting both time and resources.

    No, this report has nothing to do with golfing.  In the Chinese calendar, 2010 is the Year of the Tiger.
