"A Tsunami of Inflation": One Interview Everyone Should Watch This Sunday
Looking to red-pill your outlook on the global economy? Here's 51 minutes I found to be extremely sharp analysis on how the world is changing drastically while no one seems to notice.
Don’t say you weren’t warned.
That’s the only thing that comes to mind when I continue prattling on about how I believe the global economic landscape is shifting. My readers know that I have long held that the U.S. dollar will soon face a challenge as reserve currency and that the days of the petrodollar and hegemony are at risk. It’s one of the reasons I like owning precious metals, miners and other assets that create diversification from the current state of the global economy.
My readers also probably know my good friend Andy Schectman. He’s President & Owner of Miles Franklin Precious Metals. He’s a world-renowned expert in precious metals and recently took the time to explain, in an incredible interview with Kitco, the case for a coming global monetary reset.
He lays out the thesis “that the world is poised for a monetary reset which would result in the BRICS having their own reserve currency, likely backed by gold, and how this goes hand-in-hand with de-dollarization trends that are currently unfolding”.
I think Andy’s analysis here is spot on and share almost all of his sentiments.
Here’s an index of key talking points during the interview, though I believe the entire interview from beginning to end is worth a watch.
