America’s Decline, the Dollar and Gold

America’s Decline, the Dollar and Gold

William Engdahl and Michael Oliver return. Brandon Macdonald visits for the first time. The “deep state” and its propaganda deprive Americans of the real reason we spend blood and treasury on unending foreign wars. Enabling the U.S. Empire to expand post WWII was the forced acceptance of a post 1971 fraudulent dollar. America could print endless amounts of intrinsically worthless money out of thin air and use it to fund a military that punished any leader who refused to accept dollar payments. But Russia, China and its allies who are seeking a peaceful economic coexistence with Washington, won’t go down easily. Oliver’s work shows the dollar decline is now underway. As the dollar loses its hegemony, what will that mean for commodity prices? Engdahl opines on relevant geopolitical factors. Oliver updates us on the dollar and gold, and Brandon tells us about a very promising zinc-lead-silver discovery in the Yukon.

 William Engdahl is an award-winning geopolitical analyst, strategic risk consultant, author, professor and lecturer. After earning a degree in politics from Princeton University and graduate study in comparative economics at Stockholm University, he worked as an economist and investigative freelance journalist in New York and Europe.

He has been researching and writing about the world political scene for more than thirty years. His various books on geopolitics have been translated into 14 foreign languages from Chinese to French, from German to Japanese.

His most recent works trace the strategies and events that led to the rise of the US as an international superpower after 1945, a new kind of Empire not based upon sole military occupation of land, but control of vital resources (finance, the basic food chain, energy, in particular oil) as the basis for what would become the greatest concentration of power in history, after the collapse of the Soviet Union. 

Brandon Macdonald (CEO & Director of Fireweed Zinc Ltd.) is a professional geologist with over 20 years in the mining industry and a diverse experience base including exploration geology worldwide and investment banking in the City of London where he worked in structuring project financings and investments at Macquarie Bank after graduating with an MBA (with Distinction) from Oxford University in 2007. Mr. Macdonald has a long history of mining exploration work in Yukon including zinc projects, and originally hails from the town of Ross River, near the Tom Jason project site.

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
