Next Week’s Guests

Will Democrats be Gold Friendly?

John Rubino and Dr. Quinton Hennigh return as guests on this week’s program.

The Democrat party hates gold. Alan Greenspan explained why in 1966. He wrote: “This is the shabby secret of the welfare statist tirades against gold. Deficit spending is simply a scheme for the hidden confiscation of wealth. Gold stands in the way of this insidious process. It stands as a protector of property rights. If one grasps this, one has no difficulty in understanding the statists’ antagonism toward the gold standard.” Now that Democrats control all branches of our government what will that mean for stocks, bonds, commodities and precious metals in 2021? Absent a Republican-controlled senate, we can anticipate endless trillions of inflationary dollar creation.

John will opine on what that will mean for the markets and precious metals. Quinton will update us the very exciting prospects of discovering Eskay Creek 2.0, Eskay 1.0 being the highest grade mine in Canadian history.  

John Rubino runs the popular financial website DollarCollapse.com. He is co-author, with GoldMoney’s James Turk, of The Money Bubble: What To Do Before It Pops, and author of Clean Money: Picking Winners in the Green-Tech Boom (Wiley, 2008), The Collapse of the Dollar (also with James Turk), How to Profit from the Coming Real Estate Bust (Rodale, 2003) and Main Street, Not Wall Street (Morrow, 1998).

Previous Week’s Guests

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 will also opine on whether Bitcoin or more traditional safe hedges like gold and silver are the best safety hedges.

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

Alasdair Macleod has a background as a stockbroker, banker and economist. He is a Senior Fellow at the GoldMoney Foundation and Head of Research at Goldmoney.  His experience encompasses equity and bond markets, fund management, corporate finance and investment strategy. His weekly articles written for GoldMoney are posted on his blog at https://www.goldmoney.com/research/goldmoney-insights Because of his deep insights into underlying market dynamics, Alasdair is one of the most frequent guests on Turning Hard Times into Good Times.

Michael Timmins, President, CEO & Director of Fury Gold Mines, brings over 20 years of experience as a mining executive from his work with a number of companies, including Agnico Eagle Mines and Placer Dome. Mr. Timmins was Vice President of Corporate Development at Agnico, where he played a key role in the development of the Kittila mine in northern Finland and in the acquisition of Osisko Mining for C$3.9 billion. He has degrees from Queen’s University (EMBA), the University of British Columbia (M. Sc. Metallurgy) and Bishop’s University (B.Sc.). Mr. Timmins also serves as a Director and Audit Committee member for Excellon Resources.

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.
