Is Bitcoin your Financial Savior?

Alasdair Macleod & Michael Oliver return. Michael Timmins of Fury Gold Mines visits for the first time.

It’s clear to those not prone to groupthink that global central banks are rapidly racing their currencies toward the dustbin of history. Governments’ deficits are growing exponentially. Rather than allowing interest rates to rise to levels required to fund those deficits, central banks match exponential growth of deficits with an exponential growth rate of money. Alasdair will talk of the impact an impending currency collapse disaster will have on our lives and what that will mean to the masses. He opines on whether Bitcoin or more traditional safe hedges like gold and silver are the best safety hedges.

Oliver provides his latest views on the most significant markets, including platinum, and M. Timmins talks of Fury Exploration’s Canadian gold exploration plans to expand its multi-million-ounce gold resource and move toward production in 2025.
