Housing Recovery? Nah! It’s Just Spiking Mortgage Rates

This week’s guests on the radio program are John Rubino and Gene Epstein.

The Washington & Wall Street con game continues more brazen than ever. Good headlines are highlighted & bad ones ignored. Inflation is grossly understated so GDP is grossly overstated. The gold price is capped by counterfeiting banks so that you and I continue to accept intrinsically worthless dollars. But ultimately as the Soviet Union taught us, nature’s laws will prevail.

John Rubino explains why housing industry stats as reported this past week are not what they appear to be and why market-driven higher interest rates are likely to lead to another housing market collapse. Gold, the true and honest money, will prevail. That’s why your host believes gold mining stocks provide amazing upside potential as gold resumes its secular bull market that began in 2002.

Gene Epstein discusses the upcoming NYC Junto as well as some misconceptions regarding unemployment statistics.
