Inflation: Good and Hard!

Dan Oliver and Chen Lin are this week’s guests as we explore a new episode of the radio program.

Nature gave us gold for money and currency. It is the best form of money known to man not only for economic stability and a prosperous egalitarian capitalist society but also to ensure economic stability through ongoing market adjustments. But increasingly since 1971 we’ve had the opposite system that has led us to a likely greater depression. No matter what happens, you must own gold to preserve your wealth. But various outcomes to the current chaos may make a difference in terms of how much protection gold will provide and what other assets you may want to own. Dan outlines three possible outcomes for gold.

Chen gives us his latest views on gold, biotech and energy markets, share a couple of his favorite stocks and let us in on what he is hearing from his Chinese contacts. Your host talks about some of his favorite gold stocks and thoughts about some of the social disorder Michael Oliver spoke about last week.
