Is India’s Self Destruction America’s Future Too?

William EngdahlBrian Groves and Michael Oliver return as guests this week on the radio program.

As the world faces a major showdown between the East and the West, one of the biggest questions in my mind is which side is India on? Recent policies in India such as those aimed at discouraging gold ownership or the destruction of paper money, appear more akin to policies espoused by America’s ruling elite in Washington and the halls of Harvard, Princeton and Yale.

William talks about this recent inclination to join America’s destructive policies rather than join the constructive Asian ‘One Belt, One Road’ policies and infrastructure, and what that may mean for the dollar and gold. Michael updates us on the direction of the dollar, gold, equities and Treasuries and Brian will talks about an emerging gold deposit in Ontario being developed by Genesis Metals.

His most recent works trace the strategies and events that led to the rise of the US as an international superpower after 1945, a new kind of Empire not based upon sole military occupation of land, but control of vital resources (finance, the basic food chain, energy, in particular oil) as the basis for what would become the greatest concentration of power in history, after the collapse of the Soviet Union.

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.

Within a year Oliver shifted from brokerage to full-time technical research.
