Time for a Rational Energy Policy - Matthew Iak #5515

Summary: As energy costs continue to skyrocket, we wonder if we can get out of the box we’ve put ourselves in and create a positive vision for the future. I have Matthew Iak on the show to discuss this energy phenomenon, and what’s in store. We need to use our resources to create efficiency, and make decisions that will eventually allow the US to be the biggest producer of oil and gas in the world. Tune in for more information.

Investing Wisdom - Dr. Guy Baker #5511

Summary: Guy Baker comes on the show to discuss the progression of the markets, and how to decide what to do next in the current economical circumstances. Since the market is lacking stability at the moment, it’s best to wait for it to stabilize before jumping in; if you are already in it, however, then it’s best to stay the course. No one can time the markets with exact precision, and there are a number of factors that spontaneously affect businesses and stocks at any given time. Tune in for our in depth discussion about some of these things. Highlights: -How do you decide whether to stay or go when navigating the markets? -Markets go up and down; if you look at the history of the markets, you can identify these ups and downs. You must ask yourself whether the return on the market has been 10% throughout history, and if it is going to stay this way -If you’re in the market, stay in the market. But if you’re out of it right now, it may be best to wait for more stability before re-entering -There is no evidence that anyone can time the market effectively year in and year out—most people that encounter success in the markets just get lucky -ETFs don’t have the gains/losses or fees that mutual funds have -Picking stocks is like a gamble -You’re better off investing in a largely diversified portfolio with low fees -Stocks are based on projected income; the important consideration becomes income and appreciation -Three basic currents in the market -The markets are a willing buyer and seller that are happy -Many emotional factors dictate what happens in trading -Markets perform based on expected historical return -There isn’t much stability or support behind crypto -There’s the industrial bubble, the technological bubble, and the government bubble -Inflation is necessary in a growing, vibrant economy Useful Links: Financial Survival Network Wealth Teams

What it Will Take for Mining Stocks to Soar - the Resource Maven (Gwen Preston) #5509

Summary: The price of gold has been resilient considering what’s happening in the markets, and the mining sector has been thrown out with the growth stocks. Will the mining stocks start making money any time soon? I sit down and chat with Gwen Preston, known as the ‘Resource Maven,’ and she explains how investing methods have largely shifted as a result of the pandemic.

It seems that the cycle is out of touch with conventional/current investor expectations and timing -Some people who haven’t had to learn the bad lessons (such as those back in 2009) may learn their first one now -Finance has been reduced down to apps Useful Links: Financial Survival Network Resource Maven

Tier One Silver to Drill High-Grade Hurricane Silver Project

Tier One Silver’s CEO Peter Dembicki and SVP of Exploration Christian Rios sat down with us for a sponsor update. The excitement was palpable as Peter explained that the company had entered into a community agreement which will allow for exploration of the Ñañohuayco, San Cipriano and Morro Culispata copper-nickel-platinum-palladium-silver prospects. This clears the way Tier One to start surface work and drilling (once the permit is issued). The excitement is clearly warranted. In 2009 an initial 10 hole 1,061 meter drill program by the previous operator intersected 14 m of 2.59% copper, 0.62% nickel, 311 g/t cobalt, 0.3 g/t platinum and 0.55 g/t palladium, making this is a high priority target. .   SVP Rios is anxious to get exploration started. Previously, he was involved in the world-class discovery of the Santa Ana and Corani silver-lead-zinc deposits. His decades of Peruvian experience combined with his extensive exploration, mining development and operations background make him a vital part of the team. He observes that, “[Just] 1000 meters has been drilled. We need to continue this. There’s an area which has values up to 44% copper [emphasis added].” There’s no telling how rich and productive Hurricane will become. Peter and Christian are moving ahead quickly; drilling will start shortly and results will then follow. Which is why we’re long-term holders of Tier One shares.

The Price of Gold Does Not Reflect Its Value - James West #5507

Summary: I sit down and chat with James West, who is currently writing about some of the effects on the price of gold—effects which all tie to the inflation our economy is undergoing.

Fix the Money, Fix the World and You Can't Taper a Poinzi with Lawrence Lepard #5501

Lawrence Lepard believes that at the base layer the monetary system we have is, is probably the largest single causation of the difficulties that we're facing as a society. And it's really getting obvious and clear right now, as we're seeing these markets blow up, you know, the bond market blow up the stock market, blow up the third bubble in 26 years. Now we have housing. Now we've got the sovereign credit, everything bubble and it's blowing up and the reason it's blowing up as you can't taper a Ponzi and you know, the fed has created a Ponzi scheme with their paper. And they got to either keep printing, in which case it's going to become more worthless or they got to try and stop printing. Good luck on that.  Lawrence shares much more wisdom in this interview and is a favored guest.

Summary: I sit down and chat with Dr. Rufus Ranking, Tactical asset allocation expert, to discuss what you can do in consideration of the turmoil the markets have been facing over the last few weeks.

This Stagflation Has FAANGs — John Rubino #5490

Stagflation is here: GDP is shrinking while prices continue to rise.  Fed has no choice but to keep raising rates and stocks are responding normally to this, by tanking (Friday was brutal). The FAANG stocks in particular have stopped propping up the market. They led the market up and now they’re leading it down. The sign of a true leader. Housing affordability is at the worst level ever. Higher rates and higher prices must cause the housing market to slow down. The recession is already here. The understating of the inflation rate has hidden real negative GDP growth over the past 2-3 quarters. US government responds to Musk buying Twitter by launching a Ministry of Truth -- housed in Homeland Security and run by a cartoon villain.  Russia/Ukraine war is settling into a quagmire AND getting even more dangerous as Nato sends more weapons. This is clearly a Nato operation to weaken Russia.  But it might backfire on the dollar.

Trillion Energy to Begin NatGas Production and Cash Flow in July with CEO Art Halleran

We sat down with Trillion Energy’s CEO Arthur Halleran for a long-awaited sponsor update. Trillion’s Black Sea drill program has been funded via a recent oversubscribed C$18mm placement. The drill rig is on order and all necessary equipment and materials are paid for. Art anticipates spudding of the first well in July and he’s to have 17 producing wells in place. There’s also upside exploration potential as well, but Trillion is focusing on the proven reserves and production first. Some dilution resulted from the required financing. However, unlike most such stories, the increased shares have been more than offset by the $18 (per thousand cubic feet) price they're getting, nearly triple last year's price. With recent geopolitical issues, there’s little chance that Natgas’s price will decline in the foreseeable future. Thus, the potential payoff to shareholders is substantial. We also covered the company’s Bulgarian project. Art estimates there's 1 trillion cubic feet in this coal bed methane project. Bulgaria's Natgas price stands at a record high $27. The drilling technology to capture this gas is available and Art knows how to get it done. The past pandemic year has been a difficult one for Trillion. Financing became difficult to finalize, but Art never lost faith. Now the road ahead is looking better than ever, which is why this company remains our largest holding.

Coppernico Metals: Discovering A World-Class Copper-Gold District in South America

Ivan Bebek Co-Founder, President, Chief Executive Officer of Coppernico Metals, formerly known as Sombrero Resources, was on to bring you the latest sponsor update. (We own shares). First off, Ivan explained the recent name change. Coppernico plays off the words copper and nickel and the legendary mathematician/astronomer Copernicus, who discovered that the planets revolve around the sun. It’s all part of his plan to make legendary discoveries of copper and nickel. There have been a number of recent personnel changes, which will prove crucial to Coppernico's future. Marie-Hélène Turgeon is now a director and ESG advisor. She has 20+ years of environment management and compliance, working with Latin American mining concerns. She will help the company finalize its community agreements. Tim Kinglesy comes on as VP of Exploration. He has 18+ years of precious and base metal exploration in the Americas (Peru, Canada and Alaska). Upon joining the company, he stated, “I'm not here to drill 50-meter step-outs. I want to drill 500 to 1000-meter step-outs and go find something really big.” Completing the team is Margaux Villalpando, investor relations manager, with extensive mining sector experience in client and stakeholder relations. Coppernico’s TSX listing is contingent upon its access to the Sombrero project, which is awaiting community consent. It’s a complicated process to which the company has already devoted much time and effort. Ivan believes project access will soon be a fait accompli, as the affected communities have already benefited greatly from Coppernico’s efforts, and have so much more to gain. As usual, there’s much more coming. The team is currently reviewing a number of other potential large-scale South American projects. As Ivan said, “The opportunities have never been greater.” If anyone could do these projects, the upside wouldn’t be so enormous. The reconstituted team is now quickly working towards a successful conclusion.

Will Commodities Control the Financials? Nick Santiago #5465

1. Markets rebounding. Dow and S&P 500 are up. Nasdaq is down. So far so good. As long as it ends green.  2. How high can feds funds rate go. The quant says 1%. The dollar has been making new highs. Europe is in horrible shape. The FF rate should follow the 2 year treasury rate. We are looking at a market that is hooked on QE and money printing. Money has nowhere else to go. The DXY hit 100 and is now at resistance. Euro chart looks horrible.  3. While the dollar is going higher, gold and commodities are holding prices. Will commodities control financials in the new paradigm. This proves the need for charts. 4. Implosion of the media is well underway. Stelter shows that everything is a narrative. The world is playing out to the 1984 script. Don’t let it happen. This is where we are at this stage of society. The consequences of every act are included in every act. 5. Inflation is all over and was well underway before the war began. Still lots of liquidity in the system. 6. We are being primed for a food shortage. It can be resolved quickly.

Mortgage Rates Go Up While Housing Shortage Remains with Debbie Bloyd #5452

Mortgage expert Debbie Bloyd explains that even as interest rates rise, housing sales will remain high since there is just not enough supply to satisfy demand. Real rates are still extremely negative, over 10 percent and this just adds to the number of people seeking new homes. While the marginal buyer may be priced out of the market, there are still plenty of institutional cash buyers chasing a limited number of homes. Which means that for now, the real estate market, at least in hot markets, shows no signs of cooling down.

Extreme Stupidity and the Death of the Petro Dollar with John Rubino #5447

Torq Resources to Follow up on 1km Long Copper Discovery Hole with Chief Geo Michael Henrichsen

Torq Resources’(OTCQX:TRBMF—TSX.V:TORQ) Executive Chair Shawn Wallace and Chief Geologist Michael Henrichsen joined us for a sponsor update. News is starting to pick up. Assay results on their 13 hole maiden drill program at Margarita are expected shortly. While never drilled before, all indications are that there’s great prospectivity here. They had been trying to land this project for quite a while and finally acquired it last year. Phase 2 will commence later in the year and the company has done two recent capital raises to advance the project. Drill targets will be established upon analysis of Phase 1’s results. Concerning the company’s Santa Cecilia project, Wallace states, “We've been engaging with the communities … community initiatives are as important as anything else we do … including the technical work and the financial work. [We’re crafting] a relationship with the local community, that's going to endure over time … It's not a small task.” Once the process is complete, the project will be permitted and quickly move ahead. For good reason too, as two 2012 prior drill holes yielded nearly 1 kilometer of 0.45% copper equivalent. The recent price movements in gold and copper, at least partly due to geopolitical issues, were already heading in the right direction before the war erupted. Wallace expects demand for copper will continue to eclipse supply, which will inevitably lead to higher copper prices and greater pursuit of copper projects. That’s good news for Torq’s shareholders, who along with the rest of the sector have recently experienced less than stellar results. But all of that’s about to change, which is why we’re shareholders. Company Website: Company Website:

8 Reasons Why Wage and Price Controls are Coming Soon -- Triple Lutz Report #491

Most people alive today never experienced the 1970’s period of runaway inflation. They are quickly coming to terms with their massive loss of their purchasing power. Like a runaway train, once governments lose control, it’s nearly impossible to stop. In an effort to put the genie back in the bottle, they will be forced resort to wage and price controls. As with Nixon’s failed experiment 51 years ago, these efforts are doomed to failure. Here’s 8 reasons why: 1. No one really wants to stop it. 2. Central Banks are powerless. 3. It’s the speculator’s fault. 4. Ignorance of inflation’s true causes. 5. Authoritarianism is in the air. 6. Shortages inevitably lead to higher prices. 7. Something has to be done. 8.

Fury Gold Mines' $60 Million Silver Bullet with CEO Tim Clarke

We sat down with Fury Gold Mines' Chair Ivan Bebek and CEO Tim Clarke for a sponsor update. Fury’s sale of its Homestake Ridge Silver/Gold project to Dolly Varden Silver is now complete. Fury received CAD $5 million, 76.5 million in DV shares and two board seats. Fury's resulting enterprise value will be in the $40 - $45 million range.  Chair Bebek explains “So you’re getting three potentially great assets for $40 to $45 million …It doesn’t come around that often…” The transaction was followed up by a $5.3 million DV investment by Heckla Mining, the largest primary silver producer in the U.S., which also owns properties near Homestake. CEO Clarke adds, “…this is going to help shore up our treasury. We've got a lock up on those … marketable securities from Dolly for a year. Not only did we not have to finance again, but we could be an acquirer of other assets if it goes the right way.” Once silver begins its inevitable bull market, “We could pull out well over a $100 or even $200 million out of this.” This could finance Fury’s extensive drill programs well into the future, thus precluding the need to do many more future capital raises. The funds will be put to good use. Clarke observes that “We've got some of the best drill results we've ever had. (Recently at Committe Bay — 9.18 g/t gold (Au) over 1.5 metres (m) and 7.30 g/t Au over 1.0m in drill hole 21RV-012 and 0.88 g/t Au over 8.00m in drill hole 21RV-011 as well as rock grab results of up to 32.90 g/t Au and at Eau Claire’s Snake Lake 20.70 g/t gold (Au) over 1.5 metres (m) in drill hole 21SL-008, 5.16 g/t Au over 2.50m in drill hole 21SL-003 and 7.14 g/t Au over 1.5m in drill hole 21SL-009). With significant intercepts like these, Fury will be upping their drill programs. All of which, leaves the company in the enviable position of having great prospectivity and the resources to uncover more high-grade mineralization.

Canada Goes Full-on Fascist —John Rubino #5423

Neoliberals go full fascist  (Canadian bank account seizures, etc etc) Should we limit what we keep in banks now that we know how easily it's stolen? What about bitcoin wallets? The Cashless Society is coming soon. Look out.  Clearly another reason to own physical gold and silver.  The Ukraine thing is completely our fault. What are the risks of Russia taking the Russian part back? $150 oil? Is covid over?  -- California goes 'endemic'  -- with midterms approaching, Dems can't get elected on closed schools and vaccine passports Tesla/Musk go after the SEC for abusing Tesla non-stop The Credit Suisse story Are the Swiss banks more evil than Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan? Arguable. Whenever anyone stands up to these governments, they take them down in whatever way they please.

QC Copper & Gold Strikes 184m of .32% Copper Eq with CEO Stephen Stewart

We were joined by Stephen Stewart, QC Copper & Gold’s CEO, for a sponsor update. The news out of Quebec is quite encouraging. According to just released drill results, QC intersected 184 meters of .32% copper equivalent, well above the required .2% cutoff grade. Two drills are currently turning, with a third on the way; the goal is to keep increasing the already substantial resource by “turning waste rock into copper.” Mineralization is abundant, both within the proposed pit as well as numerous areas outside of it. QC is cashed up with CAD $18 million in the treasury and a substantial amount of marketable securities on hand. Thus the company can easily finance its 60,000 meter drill program for 2022. While the stock went higher during the past year, Stewart believes that a story this compelling can only stay quiet for so long, before the market catches on and affords it a more realistic price commensurate with its resource.

Eminent Gold Pursues Nevada’s Next Major Gold Discovery

We were joined by Eminent Gold’s CEO Paul Sun, along with the technical team, including Senior Geologist Dan McCoy, Justin Malliard and Ajeet Malliard (all PhD’s) for a sponsor update. Things have been moving along quickly at the Gilbert South and Hot Springs Range projects. The recent geophysical campaign at Gilbert South has yielded impressive results. It has provided further clarity to the already identified multi-kilometer length faults hosting gold bearing veins and allowed Eminent to identify definitive drill targets for this year’s program. Senior Geologist Dan McCoy has over 30 years’ mining experience around the world and was lured out of retirement by Eminent’s potential for big discoveries. He is searching for 10+ million ounces of bonanza grade gold and believes the team is looking in all the right places. These projects have had limited exploration in the past. By using the latest technology, the team is seeing these projects with new eyes. An overview of the Hot Springs Project was also given. Ajeet and Justin identified this property as one with great prospectivity and staked it, all while doing their doctoral dissertations. They wasted no time putting their degrees to work. Permits are in place and drilling is ready to begin. With all of this happening, there’s a certain inevitability that Eminent Gold is on the cusp of a major Nevada gold discovery. This is exactly why we’re shareholders. Company Website: Ticker Symbols: OTCQB: EMGDF — TSX-V: EMNT

Mistango River Resources Hits Bonanza Grade Gold with Chairman Stephen Stewart

We spoke with sponsor Mistango River Resources’ Chairman Stephen Stewart. He was quite pleased with the company’s just released drill results, intersecting 86.2 g/t of gold over .5 meters and 5.11 g/t of gold over .97 meters. There was visible gold in this hole and in another, for which they’re still awaiting results. This confirms Stephen’s thesis that the gold has traveled west from the ultra-productive adjacent Macassa mine. While the Phase 1 drill program didn’t yield any major results, Phase 2 is working out well and will help focus future targeting activities for the Kirkland West Project. Stephen observes that the past year was a difficult one for the junior mining sector, but is optimistic about the year ahead. Mistango currently has a market cap of CAD $10 million and has $7 million in the bank, leaving an enterprise value of just $3 million. In addition, the prior $60 million Kirkland deal means there will be little if any future dilution.

Trilogy Metals Strikes 12% Grade Copper Over Substantial Widths with CEO Tony Giardini

Trilogy Metals’ CEO Tony Giardini sat down with us for a sponsor update. He gave us an upbeat appraisal of the company’s latest developments. Trilogy recent struck 12% copper eq, “an extraordinary result.” Rising copper/gold/silver prices have increased the net present value of the Arctic project to over $2.7 billion. While inflation is affecting all mining concerns, Trilogy isn’t seeing much of an increase in its proposed capital expenditures. Trilogy is still among the lowest cost potential producers in the world with all-in cash costs of $0.98 of payable copper (current spot price is over $4). At present, the market seems oblivious to Trilogy’s rising value and vastly improved project economics. Tony believes that this won’t continue for much longer and sees a future re-rate as likely. Additionally, the company recently upped its resource estimate of its Bornite Project. There’s over 6 billion of pounds of copper (indicated and inferred) so far. They’ve also upped their cobalt estimate to over 88 million pounds. The company is increasing its outreach to local and indigenous peoples. The effort was slowed down by the global health concerns, but will soon kick into high gear. With a planned 10,000-meter drill program budgeted at $28.8 million, Tony believes that 2022 will be a milestone year for Trilogy Metals. Ticker Symbol: NYSE/TSX – TMQ Company Website:

Cathy Woods and Ark’s Fall From Grace - John Rubino #5377

Summary: I sit down with John Rubino to discuss the taper-tantrum at hand and what’s happening with the tech stocks. Tech stocks are tanking at the moment, and we see historic trends repeating themselves. This puts the economy in a unique position, because we need to view cryptos as tech stocks; ultimately, these stocks need to tank in order for the Fed to tighten. Tune in for more. Highlights: -We’re looking at the taper-tantrum, cryptocurrency, etc. -The Fed doesn’t have to raise interest rates now—they now just merely talk about it -Tech stocks are tanking -Early investors in the ETF stock are down, and a lot of things are being reversed out in a hurry -Trends are repeating; just as things start to look positive, these stocks begin to go in the opposite direction -If the higher rates never come, will anyone remember what’s happening now? -A 25% drop in the NASDAQ could kill other industries -The Fed should be fighting the 6% inflation, but thus far they have just talked about doing it -When you shut down the global economy for six months and pour money into people’s pockets to be spent, this is a recipe for inflation -Cryptos are also not holding up too well; it’s best to thing of them as tech stocks. Bitcoin, for example, is traded like a tech stock -Tech stocks need to tank in order for the Fed to tighten -It’s not a great time to be an aggressive tech stock investor -We have to keep our eyes on the prize, which is Fed capitulation Useful Links: Financial Survival Network Dollar Collapse “We Need to Be Preparing for Something Dramatic” | John Rubino Six Major Predictions for 2022 with John Rubino

2022 Gold Demand Through the Roof - Andy Schectman #5376

Summary: It’s important to look at trends in gold and silver to analyze what is to come and how you can prepare. Here to help us do that is Andy Schectman, and we discus what could possibly happen in 2022 in light of the Fed’s decisions to taper and hike rates. 2020 and 2021 were record years for the precious metals as people become increasingly cautious about leaving their money in the bank and fully relying on the dollar. It’s critical to consider whether the Fed will follow through or not with what they have said, and either way we need to prepare for the outcome; ultimately, buying gold and silver now is the best move. Tune in for more. Highlights: -Schectman is here with us to review what has happened and what is going to happen in 2022, specifically with gold demand -Both 2020 and 2021 were record years -Gold has lately been reserved for the central and commercial banks, and less for the public -A lot of people are concerned to leave money in the bank -The last 24 months have been incredible in terms of demand -Price is a tool of misdirection; it is used to accumulate gold -The public is being swayed towards other asset classes, such as cryptocurrency -The Fed announced that they were going to start to taper, and the market thought this would be a short term situation -People didn’t think the Fed would follow through, and it seems as if the market was caught off guard -They discussed 8 rate hikes over the next 2 years -The market has become addicted to stimulus and money printing -Some believe that they will cut back completely on their asset purchases in March or April -If we see rates rise up to 2%, you could theoretically see houses drop by 20% or more over the next 2 years -There has also been much under-reporting with inflation -It’s hard to determine whether they want to preserve the markets or the health of the dollar -In the end, the Fed can’t outwit mathematics or the nature of things -There are also record deficits taking place -How serious is the Fed about following through? This is what needs to be considered -Everyone needs to own gold and silver, because the dollar is at its end stages -If the Fed follows through with their statements, there will be a massive awakening, and getting product will be nearly impossible -Ultimately, the place to be is in gold; silver is a pathway to getting more gold -Those who want to get into gold will be able to increase the amount of gold they buy if they get into silver right now -The focus ultimately should be on gold because it’s a tier 1 reserve -When silver corrects, it will probably overshoot Useful Links: Financial Survival Network Miles Franklin (Put ‘Financial Survival Network’ in the subject line) Almost Sold-Out of Silver | Andy Schectman Andy Schectman: Shortage in Silver Supply Will Cause Prices to Go Higher

Effective Storytelling Can Change Your Life - Jason Jordan #5373

Summary: A skillset within corporate America that can greatly enhance chances of success is storytelling. Here to talk about the art of storytelling is Jason Jordan, who realized early in his career that the ability to tell a good story ultimately dictates how people perceive a product or idea in the business world. It is something that requires practice, as well as a keen sense of key takeaways and the emotional connections to be made while storytelling. Jordan gives vital tips for those seeking to improve their communication and marketing skills, so be sure to listen in for more. Highlights: -One skillset in corporate America that is lacking and can greatly enhance chances of success is storytelling -If you can improve your storytelling skills, there’s no limit to what you can do with your career -Here to talk about the art of storytelling is Jason Jordan -Jordan was in technical sales for most of his career, and had a revelation early on about storytelling. He was giving a presentation on a new product and wasn’t able to use digital media for his presentation because of a technical difficulty. He resorted to telling stories about the product and why it is valuable, and this resulted in many people being interested in buying the product -He has also looked at communication between generations, and how to get them to interact more effectively -Even when you look at company reports, they are essentially telling a story, but with numbers -If you can refine these skills, you will be at a major advantage -You become a good storyteller by telling a lot of stories, so consistency and practice are definitely required to improve this skill -It’s important to be able to share thoughts and ideas extemporaneously in our current world, and this requires practicing storytelling over and over again -It’s also crucial to be able to formulate important takeaways from a story, and to have a very concise message -Be sure to share the story or experience that best communicates that message. You need to build up the emotional aspects of the story so that the receiver can experience the story with you -When you tell a story, many areas of your brain are engaged, and invoking emotion can allow the listener to retain the story long term -Additionally, you need to take time to explain the answer to the main question presented to the audience -It’s also helpful to focus on finding the angle of a particular story -Storytelling personalizes things, breaks down barriers, and creates commonality and connection Useful Links: Financial Survival Network FireStory Jason Jordan Twitter

Is Tightening and Tapering Real? - David Scranton #5372

Summary: Tapering is real, but the real question at hand is to what extent the Fed will be able to do this. I sit down and chat with David Scranton to discuss the Federal Reserve’s pursuit to raise rates, and whether or not this can be achieved in a calculated manner to avoid a potential recession. There are many factors at play that are making it more difficult to bring these rates up, and this will dictate how inflation looks in 2022. Tune in for more. Highlights: -People forget that inflation comes from an increase of demand and a decrease in supply -Since it is coming from both sides, the tapering may push the demand down too far, creating a recession -It’s important to get long term rates to rise before short term rates, but this may or may not work -They may have to sell some of the bonds off the balance sheet, but this may not be the most viable solution -All of the money going into assets is going to make it harder for the Fed to raise long term rates -It’s almost too late to transition to a nation that saves rather than spends because of what is happening with inflation -China is going through a property debacle in light of the real estate issues -When we have inflation, currency is getting devalued—but this typically comes with the assumption that this is only happening in a few countries -If this was happening in every country, it would be a wash -With lower rates, the economy is reasonably healthy -A year from now, it’s likely that the market is going to be higher—with the caveat being that the Federal Reserve raises rates too fast -Another area of responsibility is ensuring the stock market never goes down, which is not feasible Useful Links: Financial Survival Network Sound Income Strategies What Will the Fed Do Next? with David Scranton Why You Should Plan to Retire Young and Retire Rich – Robert Kiyosaki and David Scranton

The Worst Inflation in 44 Years - Michael Busler #5371

Summary: As we roll into the new year, we’re curious to see the economic results from 2021. Here to talk about how these may look as well as some predictions for 2022 is Michael Busler, a professor of finance at Stockton University. We’ll probably see an economic growth of about 5.5% with the unemployment rate down 4%. The downside, however, will be inflation, since prices went up about 7.5% in 2021. The Fed thinks that inflation is largely influenced by supply chain disruptions, but Busler talks about 4 other major factors that contribute immensely. You won’t want to miss these key points, so tune in for more. Highlights: -Busler is a professor of finance over at Stockton University in New Jersey -The final numbers will likely show the economic growth of 5.5%, which is good, and the unemployment rate will be down around 4%. On the bad side is the inflation rate, which is likely to show that prices went up about 7.5% in 2021, which is the worst inflation we’ve had since 1980 -We’ll probably see about 4.5% growth this year. Unemployment will probably stay pretty constant. The major problem at hand is definitely inflation, and we’ll probably be looking at 8% -The Fed thinks inflation will go away on its own around the middle of this year because they claim inflation is caused by supply chain disruptions. Busler believes that the supply chain isn’t significantly contributing to inflation -Last July, the economy was operating the same as it was before the pandemic The real causes of inflation: -The Biden administration has declared war on fossil fuels; there are higher energy prices -A large portion of the population is not returning to the workforce; 3.6 million have left and are not returning. To bring people back to work, we’ve had to raise wages significantly -The federal government has been $6 trillion more than they’ve brought in in tax revenue in the last two years -The federal reserve is allowing all of this to happen. In the past, they have shrunk the money supply and brought interest rates up. -The true measure of inflation, according to Busler, is the consumer price index -It’s important to analyze price increases in the goods and services we normally buy -Once we’re in a wage price spiral, we run into serious problems -The federal reserve needs to realize that inflation is a a major issue that needs to be resolved -Rather, the Biden administration is dedicated to resolving real or perceived social injustices -Normally, the stock market and housing go up in value more than the inflation rate. The stock market will probably do well for most of this year. Useful Links: Financial Survival Network It’s Inflation, Stupid with Michael Busler Taxing the Rich to Death with Prof. Michael Busler

6 Major Predictions for 2022 with John Rubino #5365

Summary: When we experience things like inflation, people tend to try and live in the moment—enjoying time away from work and stimulus checks. This cannot last forever, and today I chat with John Rubino to discuss what these inflationary circumstances mean for the future. It seems that the stock market is precariously over-valued, and will probably not thrive in 2022; gold, on the other hand, does well in these circumstances. Digital assets are also becoming increasingly prominent, which causes us to question how we view wealth and assets in general. Tune in for more. Highlights: -During the Great Depression, especially in Paris, people started living in the moment rather than merely striving for success -This attitude is cyclical in human society -A lot of people don’t want to return to work after having been out of the workforce for so long -The one part of inflation that may not be transitory is wages—they’ll inevitably go up -The metaverse is definitely a trend for the coming year -In these circumstances, gold goes up and stocks go down -The stock market is precariously over-valued right now -Stocks probably won’t have a great year in 2022, but gold does well in an inflationary environment -Assets are going digital. According to Rubino, the people investing in digital assets right now already have their physical needs taken care of. When this becomes compromised, people start re-focusing on the real -RV sales have also been setting records every month all 2021 -Booming RV sales used to be a crash signal -Wage and price controls are also showing through with commodities Useful Links: Financial Survival Network Dollar Collapse Real Inflation Closer to 12% with John Rubino The Feds Doubling Up, Newly Created Currency, Extremely Negative Interest Rates with John Rubino

Ultimately, we see that it is important to view wealth in terms of goods and services rather than in terms of tangible money where its value is constantly changing. Tune in for more. Highlights: -Many shelves are empty in Whole Foods; supply isn’t caught up with the general demand -This is what happens as a result of lockdowns and people staying home—there are labor shortages, and this disrupts the supply chain -This also causes prices of everyday goods to go up -Ultimately, these effects make us more aware of the current state of the economy -These types of changes in the past gave way to the dissolution of the nuclear family -Inflation undermines the underpinnings of the social order -People fail to realize that prices can also crash up -It’s important to look at wealth as goods and services rather than just dollars -Purchasing power is the ultimate arbiter of your true wealth -Inflation also leads to reduction of the savings rate—there is less incentive to save -People have different conceptions of wealth which creates disagreement around whether the government should distribute more money or not -Wage and price controls are inevitable -Price control appears to be the path of least resistance, especially in terms of politicians getting re-elected Useful Links: Financial Survival Network George Gammon YouTube The Rebel Capitalist Show Live Stream Q&A with George Gammon The Day Capitalism Died – Robert Kiyosaki, Kim Kiyosaki and George Gammon

Jordan Roy-Byrne - Inflation to Remain Subdued in ’22 #5360

Summary: There’s two sides to the debate about whether inflation is here to stay, and I talk to Jordan Roy-Byrne to hear his opinion on this topic. He points out that the market action we’ve been seeing alludes to the fact that inflation has peaked; long term rates have been coming down, bonds have rallied, and the metals are trading below their previous highs. We have to look at each year relative to the previous, so next year we may experience disinflation—where we still see inflation, but at a decreasing rate. Tune in for more. Highlights: -Is inflation here to stay? There’s two sides to this argument -Natgas has come down, uranium has come up…what else is ahead? -Long term rates have been coming down in recent months and bonds have rallied -If you look at gold and silver, they’re trading well below their previous highs, and the same is true with the mining stocks -Oil has probably peaked for the time being -The market action screams that inflation has peaked -Next year we may see disinflation -Commodities have peaked as well -Gold and silver have been correcting for 17 months now and remain pretty weak -Every time the Fed has tapered in the last 7-8 years, real interest rates start to rise -The picture in the coming months is not bullish for precious metals -Inflation is here to stay, but it’s going to come down to a lower level next year -They have to keep the whole system going—it would be catastrophic to let everything fail -Each year is a comparison off of the previous one -Oil and energy prices are big drivers -We have to consider how long the Fed rate-hike cycle will last and what it will look like -There is risk of a correction this coming year, but the market is not at risk of a crash just yet -Precious metals take off when interest rates are higher Useful Links: Financial Survival Network The Daily Gold The Precious Metals Bull Market Has Not Yet Begun with Jordan Roy-Byrne Real Gold Bull Market at Least 12-Months Away Says Jordan Roy-Byrne

I sit down and chat with John Rubino, who breaks down what is happening with inflation and how different economical components and markets are being affected.

New Major Nickel Discovery with FPX Nickel’s CEO Martin Turenne

FPX Nickel’s CEO Martin Turenne joined us for a sponsor update and to discuss the company’s new major nickel discovery at the Van Target. So far, each hole drilled has shown significant mineralization and there are more drill results on the way. They’ve scored some of the strongest nickel intercepts ever found in the Decar District. Their Baptiste Project is already the world's third largest undeveloped nickel project and as Martin has stated before, Van could be bigger, much bigger. Like copper, the price of nickel has been strong. Supplies are diminishing, while demand has been increasing. Nickel is an essential component in EV batteries as well as production of stainless steel. Martin makes a compelling case that the political will now exists to exploit these much-needed resources. They’re essential for the furtherance of governments’ low carbon ambitions. Presently, Indonesia is the Saudi Arabia of nickel and it's all going to China. It’s not clean nickel, which companies like Tesla are prioritizing. The West requires its own supplies and there’s no better place to start producing than in Canada. While global investors have been giving resource stocks the cold-shoulder, Martin is unperturbed and believes that the tide will soon turn. And he intends to see FPX take a leadership role in the sector’s resurgence. Company website: Ticker Symbols – OTC: FPOCF – TSX.V: FPX

Low Silver Price Creates Buying Opportunity in Silver One Resources' Shares

Silver One Resources' CEO Greg Crowe came on for a sponsor update, to provide us with a recap of 2021's highlights and to lay out the path for 2022. Crowe believes that the current low silver prices have created a buying opportunity in Silver One's shares. Its present focus is at the flagship Candelaria, Nevada based project, where they intercepted 1,070 g/t Silver and 1.48 g/t Gold over 4.57 meters.The goal is to keep expanding the resource, as well as pursuing a potential porphyry deposit in another area of their property. He also has high hopes for i's two other projects, Cherokee and Phoenix.    Silver One is well funded, with over CAD $9.3 million in their coffers, plus another cash installment due from the sale of their Mexican projects. Crowe left open the possibility of expanding the 2022 drill program which could require additional funding, but for a good cause.  2022 could very well be the pivotal year for Silver One Resources and its efforts to restart the Silver State's richest mining district.

5 Reasons Why Gold Prices are Going Higher - Todd "Bubba" Horwitz #5352

Summary: There are a number of factors that contribute to the increase in gold prices, so I sit down and speak with Todd “Bubba” Horowitz to discuss some of the possible contributions to this phenomenon. The Fed’s decision to increase interest rates has played a large role in this, and so have the decrease in industrial production and the overall decline of currencies.

Highlights: -The Fed is going to increase rates on Wednesday most likely -Typically a raise in interest rates isn’t the best thing for precious metals -Energy is twice as much as it was a year ago -Industrial production around the world is going down -The protracted decline of the Euro also plays a role in this -With crypto, people are showing that they don’t believe in the value of paper money anymore -We’re starting to see increased M&A activity in the sector -This year, 20 times more money went into the stock market than the last 20 years combined -Gold is one of the steadiest assets, even with its ups and downs throughout history -We are showing weakness, which is a concern in the short-term Useful Links: Financial Survival Network Bubba Trading U.S. Economy Headed for Disaster with More Powell, Warns Bubba Horwitz | Stansberry Research Everything is Going Up in Price with Todd “Bubba” Horowitz

Trillion Energy’s Value Greatly Increases with Dramatic O&G Moves

We sat down with sponsor Trillion Energy Corp’s CEO Arthur Halleran. He is very optimistic. Energy prices are escalating, especially in Europe and Asia, right in Trillion’s backyard. Revenues from their Cendere oil fields have increased dramatically and natural gas prices have risen from just under $6 per mcf to $10. The cost of production is quite low, hovering around $0.11 per mcf; the pay-off from the SASB field will be substantially higher than originally anticipated. While project financing has been drawn out, there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. Once the company is re-domiciled in Canada (US trading will be unaffected), Art assures us that financing will happen soon thereafter. Then wells will be spudded and that means that cash flow is within reach. All of which is great news for shareholders like us.   Tickers OTC: TCFF — CSE: TCF

Smarter Spending on Deep-Discount Days With Angela Sloan #5348

Unless you complete your holiday shopping before Halloween, you might be enticed by Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals. These tips may help you save time and money. Beat the crowds. If you shop early in the season, items are more likely to be in stock and you may face fewer shipping delays. Sales often start well before Black Friday, so keep an eye out for special promotions at least a week or two ahead. Signing up for online or social media deal alerts can help.  Research pricing. Knowing whether a deal is truly good can be tricky, but many websites and phone apps are available that can help you compare items and prices as you shop.  Set up accounts. To complete purchases quickly, consider saving your information and shipping addresses on trusted online accounts with your favorite retailers. Make it a habit to search for promotional and coupon codes that you can use at checkout. Review shipping costs, too, to avoid paying more than you expect. Track purchases. To help you stick with your budget, keep track of what you spend. If you're shopping with credit, try using one card for everything so you can quickly review your spending. A rewards card may give you cash back, points, or miles that you can redeem in the future, but watch out for high interest rates if you can't pay off the balance in full.  Use cash. Consider using a debit card or cash for in-store purchases. Carrying only a predetermined amount of money in your wallet may help you avoid overspending. Pay attention to the fine print. Retailers may have special policies in place for the holiday season. Knowing the time limits for exchanges or returns is especially important when you're shopping early. Ask for gift receipts and keep your own copies. Watch out for exclusions. Promotional prices might be limited to certain items and may expire quickly, so understand the details.  Look for price guarantees. If you buy an item that later goes on sale, some retailers will refund the difference within certain time limits. Retailers may also match a competitor's price on an identical item (you may need to provide proof of the purchase).

Fury Gold Mines' $50 Million Transaction to Launch Next Growth Phase

We were joined by sponsor Fury Gold Mines’ Chair Ivan Bebek and CEO Tim Clark to get the latest on the just announced sale of its Homestake Project to Dolly Varden Silver (TSX.V: DV). It’s a $50 million deal for which Fury gets CAD $5 million in cash and the balance in DV shares, along with two board seats. In the words of Clark, “…the combination of these two adjacent assets is very strong. Combining our Homestake Project with the DV Project creates an attractive opportunity to immediately establish shareholder value through the potential synergies that result from their regional proximity.” It’s been no secret that Chair Bebek had been looking to sell-off Homestake. He observed that these two projects were always meant to be together and that there’s huge upside potential for Fury, once DV begins executing on its plan. In the meantime, Fury receives a substantial cash infusion, which when combined with a $2 million payment from Quebec, puts off their need to raise fresh capital. They can continue to focus upon their core projects, Committee Bay and Eau Claire. And for good reason too. Several days ago, Fury announced that they had drilled 13.93 g/t of Gold over a hefty 10 meters. These were the best drill results in five years. Clark sees this achievement as opening up substantial expansion opportunities and it confirms the thesis that Committee Bay represents a major gold exploration opportunity. Most importantly for shareholders, the last week has seen company’s future value increased both by the drill bit and the Homestake sale, which gives Fury a dual opportunity for share price appreciation.

Are Battery Metals are the Best Inflation Hedge? Jamie Keech #5334

We sat down with Jamie Keech to discuss inflation and inflation hedges. Jamie is of the opinion that inflation is here to stay and that factors are making commodities such as Uranium and battery metals better hedges than the traditional one of precious metals.

Tier One Silver — We are in the infancy of a new silver discovery, says CEO Peter Dembicki

TIER ONE SILVER INTERSECTS 1,480.5 G/T SILVER EQUIVALENT OVER 1 METER ON THE MADRE STRUCTURE AT CURIBAYA Tier One Silver released some highly positive news from their Curibaya Project in Peru. CEO Peter Dembicki explaind that, “[Drill] Hole #6 is the first plus-kilogram intercept at Curibaya on a feeder vein that may host the extensive high-grade silver on surface, which gives us the confidence that we are in the infancy of a new silver discovery. Drilling along structures that have yielded positive channel sample results is proving to be a sound strategy as the Company looks to realize the vast potential of the property indicated through high-grade silver mineralization on surface.“ Senior VP of Exploration David Smithson, speaking to us from the core shack at Curibaya, further clarified, “The positive results from hole 6 represent a major advancement in our understanding of the controls on high-grade mineralization within the project. The combination of alteration vectoring, targeting the margins of high chargeability anomalies and surface geochemical channel sampling is paying dividends with the drill. These results continue to support our view that Curibaya has the potential for a major discovery.” Clearly these results are a major milestone in Tier One’s advancement towards a major discovery. Smithson suspects that there are a number of similar structures throughout their extensive land package and the team believes that their thesis has been further validated. Results are due in for 9 more holes. Dembicki is expecting more good news. As shareholders we’re excitedly looking forward to the next release. Website: Ticker Symbols: OTCQB: TSLVF — TSX-V: TSLV

Tank the Dollar or the Economy - John Rubino #5327

Summary: The Fed seems to be losing control of the inflation narrative. No one believes it's just temporary as the list of everyday things like gas and coffee that are soring in price gets longer. And fewer people think the Fed has any way of fixing things.  The labor market is the tightest it's ever been, producing some scary/funny stories.  US housing is officially a bubble. Now it's not just prices but behaviors that have become dangerous.  This month's elections in VA and NJ imply big things for next year's Congressional midterms. Thanksgiving dinner cost is hitting a record. If nothing else brought home the cost of inflation, this dinner will. Highlights: -Is the Fed losing control? They have always controlled the narrative, but now, not so much -The narrative is everything in the currency world -The Fed has gotten away with the story that the higher prices are transitory and that normality will return -Financial markets are being affected—there are inflation hedges and gold and silver are starting to ramp up -It looks as if people don’t believe the Fed anymore -Inflation started getting closer to double digits in the 70s -The Fed has made the decision to let the current inflation run for a while and do a tiny bit of tapering -Inflation is forever now -In a government bond, you would lose so much capital every year -Thanksgiving dinner is up to as much as $100 a turkey -This is a great time to be a debtor -The complexion of the precious metals market has changed entirely over the last three weeks -We’ve seen upside reversals Useful Links: Financial Survival Network Dollar Collapse Kill the Dollar or the Economy with John Rubino John Rubino on Strikes and Wade Inflation

Summary: We are continually presented with this notion of ‘transitory’ inflation, which is entirely inaccurate and misleading. I sit down with Michael Pento to discuss the real driving factors of the current monetary situation, and what this is going to look like as we enter the new year. Over the last couple of years we have seen $6 trillion handed out to increase consumption, but the balance increase is going to be $0 in 2022. Will the markets be able to survive in these conditions? Tune in to find out more. Highlights: -The notion of ‘transitory’ inflation is focus group driven and is not realistic -Thanksgiving Turkey alone this year could be over $100 for ten people -The central bank was finally able to launch modern monetary theory—borrowing money from the treasury, giving it to consumers, and printing it all -Countries like Israel are experiencing hyper-inflation -Next year, this will probably melt down -We have a fiscal and monetary cliff heading into 2022 -There is going to be a crash in asset prices -You may see a crash in real estate bonds outside of treasuries which could cause inflation to crash all at once -In 2 years, $6 trillion was handed out to increase consumption, and the balance increase is going to be $0 in 2022 -The stock market will most likely look like it did in 2018, and crumble in a month or two -2022 is going to look nothing like the previous two years -Inflation is a monetary phenomenon—it’s not what happens as a result of shortages -Is the Fed going to let all these markets collapse? -We are probably headed towards a blockchain currency managed by the Fed—there wouldn’t even have to be a treasury -Real interest rates are not going to go much higher -Gold is going to trade much more towards the level of real interest rates -China saved the global economy to a great extent in 2008 with construction projects, but they can’t do that again -No one country will be able to save us from what’s happening in 2022 Useful Links: Financial Survival Network Pento Portfolio Strategies Interest Rates will Skyrocket if Fed Keeps Printing Money – Michael Pento with Greg Hunter Ahead: Runaway Inflation & Bail-Ins | Michael Pento Tofu Dreg Article

This is something that we experienced back in the 70s, and it is likely here to stay. Inflation is manifesting in a number of areas including energy and working wages—fueled by supply chain shortages and people leaving the workforce to receive money from the government. Something has to give, and we must show resistance to increasing prices if we want to avoid further damage to the economy. Highlights: -Is Build Back Better going to happen? We have inflation, an infrastructure bill, and a lot of other factors -This is the highest inflation we’ve seen in about 30 years -The Biden administration and the Federal Reserve say that it will go away—but this is not necessarily true -They want the price of fossil fuels to increase, and have carried this out by restricting the supply -Energy prices are going to rise in these conditions—manufacturers are also paying more to get energy -Energy inflation is here to stay -Wage inflation is also a major problem—3 million workers left the job market during COVID and are not returning -Businesses had to raise the starting wage of these workers to get them back, and had to raise them for other workers as well -The government has spend $6 million more than they’ve brought in in tax revenue in the last 2 years -These things should not be passed at this time since we’re already in a hole -Even when the supply chain issue is resolved, there are still number of other things causing inflation -We could end up having stagflation, which we haven’t seen since the late 1970s -The 70s was a great time to be a debtor -As long as people keep receiving free money, they start to expect it. This mindset doesn’t help with the labor shortage -Stock prices will usually go up more than the inflation rate -When you see prices go up, don’t automatically pay them—see if there are substitute products -If people become resistant to it, there will likely be less inflation Useful Links: Financial Survival Network News Max Michael Busler Twitter Funding Democracy Facebook Taxing the Rich to Death with Michael Busler Inflation Isn't Going Anywhere But Up with Michael Busler

Eminent Gold Launches Nevada Treasure Hunt

Eminent Gold Launches Nevada Treasure Hunt with CEO Paul Sun and Chief Geologist Dan McCoy   We were joined by a new sponsor Eminent Gold Corporation. CEO Paul Sun, a mining engineer with extensive experience in capital markets is at the helm. Chief Geologist Dr. Dan McCoy has over 30 years of global mining experience. He headed up the teams at Keegan Resources and Cayden Resources, which led to the acquisition of both companies. There’s 4 PhD’s pursuing Eminent’s exploration ambitions. The company has four projects, all of which show great potential. As far is which one is the most promising, McCoy likens it to picking your favorite child, a hard task at best. To date, sampling has taken place at Weepah and Gilbert South. Results have greatly exceeded expectations, with channel grades up to 60 g/t gold and 30g/t gold respectively. This has helped form a better understand the underlying geology and to further refine future drill targeting. Eminent is not just another Johnny-Come-Lately Nevada gold explorer. Their projects are in close proximity to other large past and present producing mines. They’ve upped the game by looking for gold in places where others haven’t previously ventured. They’re using the latest technology to re-examine historic projects. In earlier times, when less effective methods were the only one’s available, miners pursued low-hanging high-grade fruit and ignored deposits that were not then economic. Times have changed; Sun and McCoy believe they are on to the next great Nevada discovery(ies) and expect a steady stream of news and catalysts to follow shortly.

Learning to Love Inflation - John Rubino #5314

Crescat Capital gold macro article great charts, including: The gold miners are the only major sector now generating positive free cash flow The miners' gold reserves have peaked and are now declining, forcing them to acquire more by buying up juniors.

Meanwhile, school board protests are a huge factor and might be a sign of things to come for the midterms.  In Australia, the bond yields are spiking through the central bank's target levels. Emerging market interest rates are rising too. Brazil is good example, but lots of other countries have interest rates up in historically normal ranges of 5%-10%.

"Student Loan Forgiveness" - Paul Oster #5308

Summary: Student loan debt has been a pressing issue in our country for quite some time, with little progress in resolving it. I sit down and chat with Paul Oster to analyze some of the causes of this phenomenon, and possible ways out. It seems that we are in an endless cycle of finance companies lending out more money, causing institutions to up their prices. There needs to be more awareness around the implications of taking a loan, and the long-term financial commitment it entails. Highlights: -Student loan debt has been a pressing issue for quite some time -There has been talk of forgiving student loan debt—which is great in theory—but isn’t necessarily feasible -What sounds great can be difficult to execute -We must consider who is going to help fund this -Student loan debt is something we have to get ahold of immediately; finance companies are lending more, so institutions are charging more. It’s an endless cycle -In order to forgive this absurdly large sum of money, something has to give -The deferment period and relatively low interest rates make loans attractive -There needs to be a more in-depth discussion of these things and adequate planning before loans are taken so that people understand the consequences -Students don’t receive enough information on all of the obligations of a loan—it can affect the rest of your life and set you back financially. -It is good for building credit, but only if all payments are made on time -There are lots of negative consequences that can come about in the case of emergencies -Income-based repayment entails paying back your loans based on what you can afford -The government is trying to solve a problem that they created—which typically just makes it worse -The opposite of financial education is financial ignorance, and at a younger age it’s harder to make a decision that can harm the rest of your life -Your credit score is either going to save or cost you money every month Useful Links: BetterQualified Financial Survival Network "Millenials Messing Up with Too Little Credit?" with Paul Oster "Threat of RansomWare is Quickly Spreading" with Paul Oster

This Copper Project is the “Real Deal” Says Torq Resources’ Michael Henrichsen

Torq Resources’ Executive Chair Shawn Wallace and Chief Geologist Michael Henrichsen came on to discuss their recently acquired Chilean gold-copper Santa Cecilia project. Wallace mentioned that Santa Cecilia was always their major goal. He had been hinting at something big during our last interview and now he’s delivered. At 32.5 square kilometers, it’s sitting on a major system in the world-class Maricunga belt. Some historical work had been done in the 1990’s, and then it inexplicably sat on ice for decades, ignored by all. According to Henrichsen, “This is the real deal… The initial discovery has already been made…” Now they just have to identify the most promising targets. It’s an extremely unique place, which explains why the team spent the better part of two years on its acquisition. Henrichsen’s global mining network was instrumental in getting the deal done, especially in light of the global health concerns that made international travel all but impossible. To sum it all up, Wallace says, “The Santa Cecilia gold-copper project represents the culmination of our acquisition strategy in Chile. It is our belief that exploration at a project of this magnitude will be transformative for Torq. Now that the project is in place, it’s time to start to realize its exploration potential.” Ticker Symbols - TSX.V : TORQ OTCQX : TRBMF

Summary: The markets have hit some rough patches today, but this is ultimately inevitable.

Taxing the Rich to Death with Prof. Michael Busler #5290

Summary: A budget proposal was just put out by the government, and Michael Busler comes on the podcast to walk us through this proposal and some of the implications that accompany it. The federal government has spent trillions more than they received in tax revenue during the last two years, which has called for a major tax increase for higher income individuals. While this benefits lower income earners, it ultimately reduces capital formation which is vital within our economy. Tune in to hear more from myself and Busler about what the proposal means and to increase your awareness of this topic. Highlights: -A budget proposal was put out, and Michael Busler is going to walk us through this -The federal government spent $3 trillion more than they received in tax revenue last year, and they will do the same this year -The plan that Biden puts out takes income away from those that earned it, and gives it to people that have not -They’re going to provide lower cost/free healthcare, free education, and other benefits that would go to lower income Americans -Biden says he’s going to tax those that make over $400k per year, but this is only about 1% of Americans—the average American will also see rising taxes -He states that these plans will not cost anything, nor will they add anything to the debt -By over-taxing the highest income earners, you reduce capital formation -With income, you pay taxes, and then with your disposable income you spend or save it -Most people spend most of their disposable income -Wealthy income owners still have much income leftover to save and invest, which becomes new capital for the economy (which we need in our economy) -This tax increase thus takes away from this new capital. This could lead to a capital shortage, which means businesses would have to raise prices -This only helps the lowest income earners, and everyone else will feel the negative impacts of this plan -They need to raise the debt ceiling relatively soon -It will replace individual responsibility with social responsibility -America became so prosperous because it encouraged individual freedom/responsibility as well as low taxation, and government role was very limited -Biden’s current plan goes against those values Useful Links: Financial Survival Network Michael Busler - Facebook

Precious Metals, Inflation, Shifts in the Economy, What Does it All Mean? - Andy Schectman #5284

Summary: Andy Schectman and I sit down to discuss the precious metals, inflation, and some of the recent shifts in the economy that have left people wondering what’s in store for us as a nation. It seems that transitory, in regard to inflation, has taken on a whole new meaning. We are not going to see inflation disappear eventually; rather, it is most likely structural, and will continue to increase. Furthermore, we look to the precious metals as a way to maintain a sense of privacy in a world where it seems to be dissipating—gold and silver seem to be the only dependable way to secure your wealth. Highlights: -The precious metal markets have not been behaving well—silver is under pressure right now -Many things that are vitally important are not spoken about in the media; there’s a lack of honest reporting -What does transitory even mean in light of the current inflation? -The shift in inflation could be structural, and continue to increase -The Chinese are on the path to taking over the reign of the economic powerhouse; wealth is moving eastward -Our infrastructure bill will probably not even go towards infrastructure -China is building relationships and assets that will allow them to transition -The biggest thing in the tax bill is the proposal to monitor all gross in-flows and out0flows of money above $600 on all platforms (Venmo, PayPal, etc) -Precious metals give a sense of privacy in a world where privacy seems to be dissipating -The biggest problem will ultimately be people not being able to source anything -There will most likely be higher premiums on gold and silver -In regard to the supply chain, there are shortages of everything -Keeping interest rates low is the only option -You don’t buy gold and silver to get wealthy; it is wealth Useful Links: Financial Survival Network Miles Franklin

Summary: Markets continue to fluctuate up and down, and in this episode I discuss these fluctuations with Gil Baumgarten.

Fury Gold Mines - Drilling Big Enough to Succeed in Any Market

I sat down with Fury Gold Mines' Chair Ivan Bebek and new President/CEO Tim Clark for a sponsor update. Bebek heartily agrees with Rick Rule's prediction that 2022 will definitely be the year of the explorer. If they're right, then it could also be the year to be a Fury investor. Clark explains that he was extremely fortunate to join and lead Fury's exemplary team; all it needed was a refocus on drilling. He has 23+ years of experience working on the finance side of the sector. Since joining, he has cut costs significantly to ensure that drilling dollars go even further. The team is driven to make a major discovery and thereby unlock Fury's value.  A recent CAD $5 million private placement leaves the company in an excellent position to build upon already impressive drill results. Clark's extensive contacts with large institutional investors will help keep the money spigot open and flowing.   Assay lab delays are still prevalent across the industry, and the company has a huge quantity of samples waiting to be evaluated. Eventually the backlog will ease and then the market will understand the success of the drill program.  Bebek believes that the recently announced Angico Eagle-Kirkland merger is a sea change for the juniors. He points out that other large mergers in the past have set off similar cycles. This could be the spark that ignites a major round of merger and acquisition activity--and that could be very good news for Fury's shareholders.  (We own shares) Compay Website: Ticker Symbols: NYSE/American - TSX: FURY

Higher Tax Rates Coming - Wayne Titus #5278

Summary: Should we be apprehensive about tax changes? Wayne Titus, a member of Savant Wealth Management, comes on the podcast to break down some of the shifts in taxes and what to expect. The tax reform act was passed back in 2017, and brought on many changes in tax brackets. If Congress doesn’t make any decisions, these brackets revert back to what they were in 2017. This is a long process which may not conclude this year—which can also make giving financial advice more complicated. Highlights: -Wayne recently joined Savant Wealth -Should we be worried about tax changes? The tax reform act was passed back in 2017 and brought on a number of change in tax brackets. If nothing is done by Congress, those brackets revert back to what they were in 2017 -Most changes are not going to impact taxpayers (unless you earn $400k+). Thus, these changes affect businesses more. -Our tax rate structure is progressive; the number sounds large, but the blended rate of tax makes it more rational -Many other states besides California and New York are affected by some of these tax changes -This is a long, drawn out process that may not conclude this year. A lack of solidified dates for changes makes it hard to make decisions in the financial sector -Our legislative process is iterative Useful Links: Financial Advisor Network Savant Wealth Management Wayne B.

Summary: Today, I have John Rubino on the podcast to update us on all things economy: from real estate to the supply chain, we are seeing a lot of shifts and instabilities that have incurred over time. Evergrande seems to be bleeding over into the rest of China’s immense real estate sector—tampering with the industry as a whole.

Gold Terra Keeps Finding More High-Grade Gold with CEO David Suda

We spoke with Gold Terra’s President/CEO David Suda for a sponsor update. The latest drill results were impressive with intersects of 11.2 g/t gold over 4.57 meters and 5.22 g/t over 17.86 meters in a “very strongly altered … portion of the Campbell Shear.” This marks the third drill result since April of this year, all showing high-grade gold. Suda is convinced that he’s onto something big. The adjacent Con mine produced 5 million ounces over its lifetime and he believes that they could easily be sitting on a similar scale deposit. The most recent drill results were from a property optioned to the company by Newmont. Suda is of the opinion that they're closely following Gold Terra’s progress. This could bode well for the future. While the market has generally met this news with indifference, Suda is optimistic that external factors will force the market to again focus on the sector. Gold Terra is trading at a substantial discount to its peers and there is hope that in the coming months, with more drill results on the way, that this gap will narrow dramatically.

American Eagle Gold Now Permitted to Drill on Nevada’s World-Class Cortez Trend

American Eagle Gold’s CEO Tony Moreau and Exploration VP Mark Bradley were here to give a sponsor update. First, their drill permit application was just approved by the BLM. This sets the stage for drilling to commence shortly at their Goldengate project in Nevada. The property is adjacent to Nevada Gold’s Goldrush and Cortez Mines. These are prodigious mines, having produced millions of ounces since coming on stream. Tony and Mark are extremely upbeat about Goldengate’s prospectivity. Mark was at the helm of the team that discovered and defined Goldrush and has spent the better part of 30 years working on the Cortez Trend. Few people can match his knowledge and experience there. Technology has come a long way since early 2000’s when Mark was working on Goldrush. CSAMT, stratigraphy, and 2D seismology either didn’t exist or were in their infancy. While looking for the yellow metal is always a gamble, the ability to see into the ground and analyze underlying structures and intrusions to select drill targets helps make the task much easier and more accurate. Mark has identified the most promising target zones and now it’s just a matter of getting the drill turning. While competent experienced crews are at a premium, Tony is confident that they can get the needed equipment and staff to insure that the current drill program will succeed.  If the old saw that the best place to find gold is close where it’s already been found, then American Eagle could be sitting on a major discovery. And if the best person to make that major discovery is the one who’s done it before, then he’ll be well served by Mark.  (We own shares in the company). Company Website Ticker: TSXV: AE

The Supply Chain Ain't What it Used to Be - Aaron Clarey #5262

Summary: The supply chain is not what it used to be—resources and labor are in high demand and we are seeing lots of negative effects as a result.

Highlights: -The supply chain is like a plastic band about to snap -Clarey recently built a house and purchased furniture/materials for it well in advance, acknowledging some of the issues in the supply chain -People’s houses recently have not been getting done, which requires banks to reset interest rates (which are going up) which creates even more of a rush to get things delivered -The American dining experience is over—we see long lines, poor service, and lower quality -Standards of living go down as quality of work declines—you need to learn to do things yourself -It’s a smart idea to buy things now because of the projection of inflation -Prices of basic staples (i.e. gasoline) are up astronomically Useful Links: Financial Survival Network Captain Capitalism

Trilogy Metals: A win-win for Locals, Investors and Alaska with CEO Tony Giardini

We checked in with Trilogy Metals’ CEO Tony Giardini for a sponsor update. Preliminary work on the access road has continued unabated. When completed it will connect the Ambler Mining District to the famed Dawson Highway. The company has been focused on spelling out the benefits that area residents will realize when the road is completed. As a private toll road, it will never be open to the public; Trilogy will have exclusive use, thus mitigating environmental concerns. Currently, shipping costs to the neighboring remote towns are quite costly. It is expected that upon completion, residents will incur lower prices on many goods and commodities. Additionally, the mine will lead to greatly increased employment opportunities for thees communities. Presently 2/3 of the Trilogy’s employees are locals. Weather and health concerns have temporarily slowed the pace of drilling. However, Giardini expects that Trilogy will soon be able to make up for lost time. Alaska Governor Mike Dunleavy recently visited the mine site to emphasize the project's importance to the state. All interested parties are fully engaged. The company continues to be well capitalized with over $100 million in the bank and it will easily be able to finance its share of additional road development and exploration costs into the foreseeable future. Giardini is pleased with the pace of progress. In a project of this immense scale, there are many moving parts and everything takes time. The good news is that things are moving ahead and the pieces are starting to fall into place.  Company website: Ticker Symbol on NYSE-American and TSX: TMQ
