Comparing the 1930s and Today

Peter Tallman and Michael Oliver return as guests on this week’s radio program.

Generals commonly fight a war only to find out that as times change applying past strategies result in disaster. In the U.S. financial, “generals” at the Fed and Treasury focus policy on avoiding the deflationary depression of the 1930s.

Geologist Tallman will talk about Klondike Gold Corp.’s efforts to explore and develop a major gold deposit from the mother Lode in the Yukon from which millions of ounces of placer gold have been mined since the late 1800s. 

Michael will share his insights into the direction of gold and other key markets and Jay talks about some gold miners and why they have value.

Michael Oliver entered the financial services industry in 1975 on the Futures side, joining E.F. Hutton’s International Commodity Division, NYC. He studied under David Johnson, head of Hutton’s Commodity Division and Chairman of the COMEX. In the 1980’s Oliver began to develop his own momentum-based method of technical analysis. In 1987 Oliver, along with his futures client accounts (Oliver had trading POA) technically anticipated and captured the Crash. Oliver began to realize that his emergent momentum-structural-based tools should be further developed into a full analytic methodology. In 1992 he was asked by the Financial VP and head of Wachovia Bank’s Trust Department to provide soft dollar research to Wachovia. Within a year Oliver shifted from brokerage to full-time technical research. MSA has provided its proprietary technical research services to financial and asset management clients continually since 1992. Oliver is the author of The New Libertarianism: Anarcho-Capitalism
