Preparing for Dark Times with Money and Other forms of Capital

Dale Nejmeldeen of Dynacor Gold Mines is a guest for the first time on the radio program, while Chris Martenson and Adam Taggart return.

The physical world has limits even if money creation does not. With massive debt-based money creation, the world is facing a dismal future of massive bankruptcies and the likelihood of major wars. Not only preparing but planning ways to thrive physically, materially and spiritually is the theme of “Prosper,” a new book written by Adam and Chris. Preparing financially is part of what Chris and Adam will talk about. But equally essential are other forms of capital like material, knowledge, emotional, social, cultural, living and time.

The focus of this discussion was on financial capital but the importance of other forms was discussed as well. Dale provided an update on the significant progress being made by Dynacor Gold Mines, one of the few companies making money and growing in the gold mining sector.
