Jay Taylor is the editor of J Taylor's Gold, Energy & Tech Stocks newsletter and host of the web-based radio show “Turning Hard Times into Good Times.” His interest in the role gold has played in U.S. monetary history led him to research gold and into analyzing and investing in junior gold shares.

In 1981 he began publishing his gold-orientated newsletter. His continuing interest in gold mining prompted him to study geology, supplementing his MBA in Finance & Investments. Throughout his career Mr. Taylor worked as a banker, including holding a job in the Mining and Metals Group of ING Barings in New York. In 1997 he resigned from ING Barings to devote himself full time to researching mining & technology stocks, writing his newsletter and assisting companies in raising venture capital.

In March of 2009, Jay began hosting the popular web radio show titled “Turning Hard Times into Good Times,” which features high profile guests who discuss leading economic issues of our day. The show also discusses investment opportunities primarily in the precious metals mining sector. Jay's web based show is now by far the most popular show on the Voice America Business channel with 150,000 to 200,000 monthly listeners. He interviews CEOs of public companies as well as some of the best known Wall Street analysts, authors and political/economic thinkers.

Jay is also a frequent guest on CNBC, Fox, Bloomberg and BNN and guest speaker at various mining conferences in the U.S., Canada, Switzerland and Asia.

Some of my favorites at the May 2021 MIF

As I mentioned previously, “transitory” is a word that seems to be in fashion now, but what is not transitory is the wealth created by gold miners.  Along with my presentation at the MIF on May 20, I introduced five exploration companies that are among some of my favorites.  You […]

Inflation and the Great Crossover

On May 20, I presented once again at the Metals Investor Forum (MIF). You can watch my presentation below that I titled “Why inflation is not Transitory & the Great Crossover is Underway.” “Transitory” is a word that seems to be in fashion now, but isn’t it perhaps only a […]

Is America Facing Stagflation?

Lyn Alden and Michael Oliver return as guests on this week’s program. Michael sees a layered but significant equity bear market. In the near term, US Treasuries and gold will benefit. But as deficits surge, inflation rises forcing the Fed to fund nearly all of the Treasury needs. Confidence will […]

The Fed Tries to Keep Things in Balance

This week has to be considered a “mild” risk off week with stocks and commodities down but with the safe havens, gold and T-Bonds, up. The mild response seems appropriate in relation to the Fed minutes released last week. Peter Boockvar termed them “very slightly hawkish”). In my MIF presentation […]

Will Rising Inflation Lead to More Unrest?

It’s not just crazy gold bugs now that are worried about inflation. Real concerns of inflation are starting to rise among the establishment now, including a Democrat named Larry Summers. He isn’t buying the story that supply chain issues causing a few items like used car price spikes is a […]

Why Rising Inflation is not Transitory

John Williams, Dr. Quinton Hennigh and Michael Oliver return as guests on this week’s program. Peter Boockvar told us last week that the Fed actually believes that rising inflation rates are transitory but think that by generating more inflation now that would be positive for the economy. But does it […]

All Signs Point to Inflation

Wow! It’s getting harder and harder not to take rising inflation seriously. My IDW rose 1.1% during the week to hit a new high of 187.66. And while Equities rose a bit, the real zingers were Copper (+6.29%), Silver (+6.11%), Housing (+4.90%), and the Rogers Raw Materials Index (+3.85%). This […]

“Mugs & Metals” on the silver squeeze. Got gold?

Last week I joined February’s “Mugs & Metals” panel that discussed the “silver squeeze” that is going on. In this discussion, lead by Elijah Johnson, I joined Frank Holmes, Andy Schectman, Lobo Tiggre, Patrick Vierra, Chris Marcus, Robert Kientz and Tavi Costa. From Andy Schectman, we learned that retail bullion […]

Clive Maund’s – Gold set to soar as hyperinflation looms…

I found the following article by Clive P. Maund that is in sync with the hyperinflationary scenario that Alasdair Macleod sees. From a fundamental perspective I can’t say I disagree . Gold is real money and the demise of the dollar seems to be in motion. It is worth reading […]

A Brief Note About Mining Analyst Leanne Baker’s Passing

When I heard the news of Leanne Baker’s passing, I knew I had to express my sadness.  My work as an investment letter writer allowed me to meet this very special person only briefly on a few occasions. Except for people close to me, I have never felt such sadness […]

Preparing for a Monetary Reset – Podcast

In my radio show of yesterday, I expressed some of my thoughts about our elections as well as interviewed Dr. Quinton Hennigh and Alasdair Macleod. After engaging in the noble deed of saving the world from fascism in World War II, the U.S. has since then forgotten its values of […]

Peter Krauth Says Gold Stocks Are Cheap, But Not For Long

You could say I am touting my own book as I have been a gold bull all my life, but I can’t disagree with Peter Krauth, a former portfolio adviser and a 20-year veteran of the resource market – with special expertise in energy, metals, and mining stocks.  I would […]

Michael Oliver’s Anarcho-Capitalism

I have Michael Oliver on my radio show every other week. Many of those who listen to my podcast in youtube complain I don’t give Michael enough time to speak his mind. Well, this Tuesday, I had Michael as my main guest and for those who listen to the show […]

Gold price volatility made to shake out gold investors

When the establishment doesn’t like views that disserve its own interest, one of the tricks used most often to keep the masses from exploring an idea distasteful to the mainstream is to simply label it as a “conspiracy theory.” Simply labeling an idea as “conspiracy theory” is enough to keep […]

More and More People Questioning the Mainstream on COVID-19

I have often wondered how so many good people could fall into line for Hitler. I think we are seeing the answer playing out across the western world now. Well done propaganda is powerful. If there is no God, then we put our trust in the smartest and strongest humans. […]

A Perspective on the Coronavirus

Just some thoughts as I’m trying to put this Chinese virus in perspective. While I understand that COVID-19 is very dangerous, I was trying to put it in some kind of larger picture in my thinking. In 2017 2.7 million people died from all causes in the U.S. I think […]
