Extraordinary Popular Delusions & the Madness of Crowds

Kevin Duffy and Dr. Quinton Hennigh return as guests on this week’s program.

America is losing its First Amendment, the key to what made it a great nation. What has evolved is economic fascism. Large corporate monopolies & media collude with elite members of the Intelligence community to silence not only economic competition but competing ideas.  When everyone is thinking alike, no one is actually thinking. In truth, freedom of economic speech was curtailed to a great extent in 1971 when gold was detached from the international monetary system. That began the process of a slow but steady destruction of the free-market speech to determine the actual cost of capital.

Kevin helps us understand the connection between a loss of economic free speech and increasing financial market insanity evidenced by the recent GameStop debacle. Given the mess our economy and markets are in, we will ask Kevin how to navigate this very unstable world. Dr. Henning join me to update us on progress being made by Irving Resources, Novo Resources, Eskay Mining and Eloro Resources.
