Does the World Have Too Much Capital?

Marc Chandler is a first time guest on the radio program, while Michael Oliver and Dr. Quinton Hennigh return.

Picking up from where journalist and presidential advisor Charles Conant left off over a century ago, renown foreign exchange strategist and professor Marc Chandler squares off against conventional understanding of international economics by suggesting the challenge modern economies face is not scarcity, but surplus.

Or, might the real problem be what Austrian economists believe is a surplus of the wrong things caused by endless money creation? With trillions of dollars created out of thin air backed by nothing, how does this foreign exchange expert see the future of the dollar and other currencies including gold?

Equally unconventional in the field of geology is the free thinking Dr. Hennigh updates us on what may be a spectacular gold discovery in Australia and Oliver updates us on his call for the dollar, gold and more.

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
