Why is Investing in Gold Not a Suicidal Investment Strategy?

Daniel Oliver and Jean Martineau are returning guests on this week’s episode of the radio program.

This has been the longest and most severe downturn for the gold mining sector that your host has witnessed since the early 1980s. As David Jensen has thoroughly documented at JayTaylorMedia.com, the gold price is rigged to artificially low levels by the same interests that picked the pockets of Americans during the financial crisis. Paper gold markets are virtual markets that have nothing to do with the actual price of gold.

So what hope is there for gold and gold shares in a world in which the existing world order hinges on trashing gold as a means of maintaining the petrodollar? Gold hedge fund manager Dan Oliver will provide some answers and Jean Martineau, CEO of Dynacor Gold Mines, will tell of plans for continued profit growth achieved despite gold price suppression.
