Negative Interest Rates & A Cashless Economy. Dictatorship Arrives!

Jeff Deist, Michael Oliver & Ron Perry return as guests on this week’s radio program.

As Keynesian economic pathology digs the global economy deeper into a depression, out of desperation and denial, Keynesian religious zealots like Larry Summers and Paul Krugman champion negative interest rates laws making cash ownership a felony. From the viewpoint of Austrian economics, we asked Jeff to opine on what impact these anti-free market policies will have not only on our economy but on personal liberty and what impact they may have on stocks, bonds and precious metals.

Michael talked about what his latest structural and momentum models are saying about those same markets and Ron Perry updated us on the progress of Quebec gold mining company, Metanor Resources.
