Why Are so Few Americans Able to Get Ahead?

Charles Hugh Smith, John Anderson and Michael Oliver return as guests on this week’s radio program.

Despite the rah-rah about the “ownership society” and the best economy ever, at least according to President Trump, the sobering reality is that very few Americans are able to get ahead in terms of building real financial security. That topic is explored with main guest Charles Hugh Smith.

One of your host’s favorite junior gold exploration companies is Triumph Gold, so I am very excited to have John Anderson, that company’s Executive Chairman, as a guest during the second segment of the show. Triumph’s largest shareholder is Goldcorp but there are a number of the largest base metals miners in the world that are very interested in the prospects of the company’s new Blue Sky Porphyry discovery. Michael Oliver updates investors on the latest directions for stock, bond and precious metals markets.
