America’s Fourth Turning & You

Doug Casey, Chris Taylor and Michael Oliver return as guests on the radio program this week.

In pre COVID-19 pandemic, Doug recently opined on the ideas expressed in “The Fourth Turning” that have outlined recurring generational cycles that have occurred throughout American history. Societies arise from poverty through moral strength—and that brings them prosperity. But that prosperity brings on arrogance, and the arrogance brings on laziness, which brings on weakness and moral decline. Then they’re reduced to a condition of slavery and poverty again. Change is the only constant—except in human nature.

Doug sorts through recent events in America to help us locate our place in this cycle and provide his best advice about how we can best respond. Michael provides his latest momentum and structural analysis on the most important markets and Chris updates us on the progress being made by Great Bear on its multi-million-ounce Dixie property in Ontario.
