Alan Greenspan Suggests a Gold Standard. Ron Paul Agrees.

Dr. Ron Paul and Michael Oliver return as guests on the radio program for a second straight week.

Alan Greenspan recently opined on Bloomberg that it would be good for the world to go back on a gold standard. Not surprisingly, Ron Paul voiced his approval with host Jay Taylor and also suggested that if the world wanted peace, a gold standard would be helpful in achieving that goal. Dr. Paul also opined on the buildup of gold in China and other Asian countries and how that may in fact give them a geopolitical edge over the U.S. and NATO.

Oliver whose work suggests gold’s first serious resistance will not be felt until we reach the $1,475 to $1,540 range will explain why he remains bearish on stocks (but not gold stocks) and why an amazing turn in the decades long US T-Bond  may be close at hand. Host Jay Taylor commented on average triple-digit gains for his gold and silver mining stocks so far in 2016.

Ron PaulRon Paul founder of the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity, a two-time Republican presidential candidate and one time Libertarian nominee, and a multiple-term congressman of Texas, is a leading advocate of freedom in our nation. He devoted his political career to the defense of individual liberty, sound money, and a non-interventionist foreign policy. Judge Andrew Napolitano calls him “The Thomas Jefferson of our day.” After serving as a flight surgeon in the U.S. Air Force in the 1950s, Dr. Paul went on to deliver over 4,000 babies in his career as an obstetrician.. He served in Congress from 1976 to 1984, and again from 1996 to 2012. The Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity is a project of Dr. Paul’s Foundation for Rational Economics and Education (F.R.E.E.), founded in the 1970s as an educational organization. The Institute continues and expands Dr. Paul’s lifetime of public advocacy for a peaceful foreign policy and the protection of civil liberties at home.

Michael OliverMichael 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.
