Is America in Decline? Preparing for the Outcome

Former New South Wales Judge Michael Pembroke visits for the first time. Michael Oliver and Michael Hudson return.

From his cosmopolitan background, Judge Pembroke discusses important geopolitical changes underway with the center of power and wealth shifting from the Atlantic to the Pacific regions of the world. What are the causes for America’s declining power and wealth? Aside from Asian countries, which regions of the world will fare best and which ones not as well? How should individuals prepare to survive in a much less affluent setting? One suggestion always offered is to trade rapidly declining fiat currency for tangible assets starting with real money, gold and silver, and the companies that discover and mine those monetary metals.

Michael Hudson talks about progress being made by Hannan Metals in outlining massive copper-silver targets in Peru. And Michael Oliver highlights the markets you most need to keep an eye on at show time.

After a varied and peripatetic childhood, Michael Pembroke studied History, French and Politics at university intending to become a diplomat. Instead, he turned to the law and became a judge, undertaking a writing career in his spare time. Pembroke was born in Australia but his first school was at Sandhurst and his final university was at Cambridge in the UK.

Pembroke has travelled extensively, and lived in the United Kingdom and colonial Southeast Asia, as well as in Trump’s America. He was in Washington DC at the time of Watergate; Chicago when the Obamacare legislation was passed; New York City shortly before 9/11; and New Jersey during the first year of the Trump presidency. For his last book, Pembroke travelled through North Korea from the Yalu River to the DMZ. In his new book “America in Retreat,” Pembroke sketches the history of America’s retreat from universal principles to provide a clear-eyed analysis of the dangers of American exceptionalism.

Michael Hudson is Director, CEO and Chairman of Hannan Metals. For the past 28 years he has developed and financed mineral exploration properties worldwide. He graduated from the Univ. of Melbourne in 1990 with a B.Sc. (Hons 1st) in Geology and received the Tolhurst Noall Prize for “Mining Investment Analysis” in Victoria, Australia for the FINSIA Graduate Diploma. He started his career in 1990 with Pasminco Ltd, the largest global integrated zinc producer during the 90’s, and spent ten years working with zinc-lead projects worldwide from exploration to pre-feasibility projects in Pakistan, Australia and Peru. He has raised over US$100M for primarily European focused exploration and project development in Finland, Spain, Portugal, Sweden and Ireland. Since 2004 he has headed Mawson Resources Ltd as founding Chairman, CEO and Director. He is also a founder and Chairman of Leading Edge Materials, a critical metals company in Sweden and a director of Hydro66 Holdings Corp.

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.
