He outlines how this event could mark the beginning of a 1970ís style stagflationary episode, where galloping inflation required only 5 years.
Resolving the inflationary quagmire required considerable effort of the Fed Chairman, Paul Volker to contain the price genie.
Fast forward 40 years and the global economy faces much more dire conditions than the 1980ís inflation scare.
Dr. Paul outlines an ideal panacea to sidestep the impending calamity.
The trade skirmish between the US and key trading partners, particularly China has investors on edge.
Some economists are nervous over the potential for tariff reverberations to echo the 1930ís Great Depression.
Dr. Ron Paul disagrees with the trade tax policies, noting that "We The People," the working and middle classes carry the burden of such taxes.
Tariffs translate into higher prices on store shelves, with little overall benefit to the country as a whole.
Few if any net benefits have resulted from the trade tariffs in the domestic and global economic arenas.
Our guest also notes, "If a country destroys its currency, it destroys the middle class."
Vigilance on the part of all citizens is required to avoid the threat of profligate government spending to the detriment of society as a whole.
Our guest notes a key threat for investors today is the very real risk of negative US interest rates, where Fed policymakers press the nuclear-option.
US rates could drop below zero for the first time in modern history, mirroring their EU and Beijing colleagues.
Negative rates suggest desperation on the part of officials to keep the debt-ridden global Titanic economy afloat.
Investors will quickly recognize this ploy and abandon ship, preferring the safety of golden lifeboats and lifejackets over Davey-Jones locker.
Dr. Paul asks, "What if our officials could no longer finance retirement related programs and various welfare schemes through borrowing additional debt?"
Taxpayers would be forced to embrace fiscal responsibility and conservative, libertarian frugality, key concepts embraced by our predecessors that lifted America from a tiny 3rd world nation to superpower status.

Arch Crawford cut his technical analysis teeth as first assistant to top Wall Street technician Robert Farrell at Merrill Lynch in the early 1960s. In 1977, following Archís extensive research into astrophysical phenomenon, astrology and its correlation to market performance, he edited and published the premiere issue of Crawford Perspectives market timing newsletter.

Congressman Ron Paulof Texas enjoys a national reputation as the premier advocate for liberty in politics today. Dr. Paul is the leading spokesman in Washington for limited constitutional government, low taxes, free markets, and a return to sound monetary policies based on commodity-backed currency. He is known among both his colleagues in Congress and his constituents for his consistent voting record in the House of Representatives: Dr. Paul never votes for legislation unless the proposed measure is expressly authorized by the Constitution. In the words of former Treasury Secretary William Simon, Dr. Paul is the "one exception to the Gang of 535" on Capitol Hill.
Ron Paul was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He graduated from Gettysburg College and the Duke University School of Medicine, before proudly serving as a flight surgeon in the U.S. Air Force during the 1960s. He and his wife Carol moved to Texas in 1968, where he began his medical practice in Brazoria County. As a specialist in obstetrics/gynecology, Dr. Paul has delivered more than 4,000 babies! He and Carol, who reside in Surfside Beach, Texas, are the proud parents of five children and have seventeen grandchildren.
While serving in Congress during the late 1970s and early 1980s, Dr. Paul's limited-government ideals were not popular in Washington. He served on the House Banking committee, where he was a strong advocate for sound monetary policy and an outspoken critic of the Federal Reserve's inflationary measures. He also was a key member of the Gold Commission, advocating a return to a gold standard for our currency. He was an unwavering advocate of pro-life and pro-family values. Dr. Paul consistently voted to lower or abolish federal taxes, spending, and regulation, and used his House seat to actively promote the return of government to its proper constitutional levels. In 1984, he voluntarily relinquished his House seat and returned to his medical practice.
Dr. Paul returned to Congress in 1997 to represent the 14th Congressional district of Texas. He serves on the House of Representatives Financial Services Committee, and the International Relations committee. On the Financial Services Committee, Rep. Paul serves as the vice-chairman of the Oversight and Investigations subcommittee. He continues to advocate a dramatic reduction in the size of the federal government and a return to constitutional principles.
Dr. Paul is the author of several books, including Challenge to Liberty; The Case for Gold; and A Republic, If You Can Keep It. He has been a distinguished counselor to the Ludwig von Mises Institute, and is widely quoted by scholars and writers in the fields of monetary policy, banking, and political economy. He has received many awards and honors during his career in Congress, from organizations such as the National Taxpayers Union, Citizens Against Government Waste, the Council for a Competitive Economy, Young Americans for Freedom, and countless others.
Dr. Paul's consistent voting record prompted one Congressman to comment that "Ron Paul personifies the Founding Fathers' ideal of the citizen-statesman. He makes it clear that his principles will never be compromised, and they never are." Another Congresswoman added that "There are few people in public life who, through thick and thin, rain or shine, stick to their principles. Ron Paul is one of those few."
