  • Chris welcomes back, Charles Hughes Smith, from the Of Two Minds blog.
  • The discussion includes the excessive risk posed to Americans from overpriced / overvalued housing.
  • Given that a house represents the chief source of upward mobility, and legacy to posterity, if another real estate crisis were to ensue, the financial repercussions would be far-reaching and intense.
  • In the last housing bubble Freddie Mac / Fannie Mae shouldered their responsibility for most of the easy loans.
  • However, the subsequent echo bubble is a direct result of easy FHA mortgages - over 90% of US loans are currently backed by US GSEs.
  • Risk is a favorite topic of our guest who notes the financial challenges facing the middle class today are far different than recent decades.
  • Tthe Too Big To Fail concept is reaching unsustainable levels, ubiquitous throughout the culture, luring entire generations into a false sense of security.
  • Charles Hughes Smith praises entrepreneurs, facing extinction in the US following the recent economic recovery period, according to St. Louis Fed metrics (Figure 1.1.).
  • Chris welcomes back Bill Murphy from who is in New Orleans with Chris Powell at an Investment Conference, amid a stealth precious metals rally.

  • Our guest is convinced that the a big opportunity for oversized profits exists in the silver coin market, due to supply constraints.

  • He's monitoring resistance levels in silver bullion at $18.50 for signs of a new uptrend.

  • Once that level is surpassed, the host concurs that a new bull market could erupt with little warning.

  • Fundamentals and technicals may be irrelevant, if the PTB exhaust their supply of bullion to suppress the price.

  • Not only does the PBoC have a nearly insatiable appetite for gold, but the stockpile is virtually empty, when compared to the US / EU.

  • Gold demand will remain robust for years as China's policymakers increase the national hoard to offset the currency-turmoil threat.

  • On the heels of a multi-week PMs sector rally, John Embry, Chief Investment Strategist at Sprott Asset Management, returns to the program.
  • His work indicates much higher levels ahead for the sector, once the underlying bullion regains its footing.
  • Our guest doubts the Fed or their central banking colleagues will raise rates for years to come, to the delight of gold aficionados.
  • Monetary policymakers are constrained by staggering global debt levels - leading US money center banks hold over $200 trillion in notional derivatives - financial weapons of mass destruction (F-WMD).
  • As a result, even the hint of higher nominal rates could trigger a worldwide debt implosion of epic magnitude.
  • The issue appears to stem from a failure by officials to recognize the global scope of inflation.
  • According to the School of Austrian Economics, once national debt reaches critical mass, officials must either stop the printing presses or hyperinflation on a worldwide scale is imminent.
  • The host firmly agrees with John Embry and his business partner Eric Sprott who insist that silver represents the most undervalued asset class.
  • Their analysis suggests a 10 fold increase in silver is likely, which could represent a low-ball estimate if the global economy unravels.
  • Lower silver supply could add to already explosive demand, resulting in a massive shortage.
  • The end result could be a price surge of Herculean proportions.
  • The duo concur - the ideal investing mindset requires a paradigm shift, from capital appreciation, to wealth preservation.
