Will the Swiss National Bank or Putin Detonate the Petrodollar?

Richard Maybury and Michael Oliver return as guests on the next radio program.

Michael Oliver will provide his assessment of the structure and momentum of the precious metals markets. After 1971 Henry Kissinger devised the Petrodollar through the use of a military arrangement with the oil-rich Middle East that required countries to buy oil in dollars. Had the dollar not been artificially propped up, it would have reached its non-gold-backed intrinsic value of zero long ago. Now a number of nations are rebelling against the forced use of the dollar, most notably Russia and China.

Richard Maybury will tell us why the most important monetary rebellion may well be the refusal of the Swiss National Bank to continue to play along with the Western World’s monetary fraud by detaching the Swiss Frank from the Euro. The Swiss are renowned for their hard money preference. Maybury will explain why you need to watch the Swiss Franc for a clue to the future of your U.S. Dollar-denominated investments. You can’t afford to miss this show.

Richard MayburyRichard J. Maybury is the publisher of U.S. & World Early Warning Report for Investors. He has written several entry-level, common sense books on United States economics, law, and history. His writing style is mostly in an epistolary form, usually as an uncle writing to his nephew, answering questions. Maybury had taught economics in high school. Failing to find a book with a clear explanation of economics, he wrote one himself. Some of his books include Uncle Eric Talks About Personal, Career & Financial Security—a book that is basically the foundation for his other books about the model perspective; Higher Law, Whatever Happened to Penny Candy?—a book that explains the history of the United States economic model and how it was based on free-market Austrian economics; and Whatever Happened to Justice?—about his naturalist philosophical viewpoints regarding the foundations of America’s legal system, British Common Law, the law of the Franks, and early Christian Ireland.

Michael Oliver-newJ. 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.
