Money Bubble Will Pop-John Rubino

4By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com 

John Rubino, author of the new book “The Money Bubble,” can sum up the ongoing global financial problems in a single phrase: “There is too much debt.” Rubino goes on to say, “Debt works the same way for a country as it works for an individual or a family, which is to say if you borrow too much, then your life basically craters. Everything gets harder to do, and you end up doing things in order to deal with your past mistakes that you would never do normally. You start trying absolutely crazy things, and that’s where the world’s governments are right now. . . . We are doing all these things that are essentially con games and getting away with it so far because a printing press is a great tool for fooling people. I don’t see how we can get away with it too much longer.”

On the subject of increasing oil prices because of Middle East turmoil, Rubino says, “If gasoline goes to $5 a gallon in the U.S., which it could easily, that’s like a massive tax increase. This would come at a time when things are not that good and consumers are starting to borrow more and more money again. Governments are already deeply in debt. The derivatives markets are marching towards quadrillion dollars of notional value. The system is incredibly fragile because we borrowed too much money. . . . which causes us to do crazy things to prevent this fragility from turning into a 1930’s style depression or a Weimar Germany hyperinflation? That’s really where we are right now.” What could pop this “money bubble”? Rubino says, “The Middle East could be the catalyst that blows everything up. Derivatives could blow everything up. Japan is insanely indebted right now. . . . A currency crisis there could reverberate around the world. There are big problems everywhere you look.”

On the subject of public compliancy with an enormous financial system that has never been fixed, Rubino explains, “Most people sense that something is wrong. They don’t think the country and world are being run right, but it has been going on for a very long time. They are questioning whether it could go on forever. They have been hearing these gloom and doom predictions for a very long time, and they haven’t played out yet. The reason for that is a printing press is an amazing tool for fooling people.” Rubino also contends, “We could spend the entire show just going through the lies we are being told, one by one, with the stock market and LIBOR and gold manipulation and all the rest.” Let’s not forget money laundering for drug cartels and terrorists, where big banks are only fined in place of criminal charges. Rubino says, “There are crimes basically across the spectrum and nobody goes to prison, for this is a sign of how completely the banking system owns the government now. . . . They basically have made themselves immune to prosecution at a personal level. We could talk about this all day long and not run out of crimes to discuss.”

So, what do you do before the “money bubble” pops? Rubino says, “The first thing you want to do is avoid dependence on these fiat currencies. That is the epicenter of this latest biggest bubble. You want to swap you financial assets, like bank CD’s, into hard assets like gold and silver and, if you are able to, farm land . . . things that represent real wealth that governments cannot create in unlimited quantities. This insulates you from the government’s ongoing policy of making the dollar less and less valuable each year.” Rubino goes on to say, “Social unrest is basically guaranteed. If you look around the rest of the world, you are seeing it, and that . . . will happen on some scale here. We will see variations on wealth taxes and other types of wealth confiscation going forward and governments completely run out of money and lose the ability to just print money. . . . You should absolutely have some precious metals on hand. That is the most risk free asset you can acquire. That’s the real money.”

(There is much more in the video interview.)

After the Interview:

Rubino said he will start working on a new book this fall with the working title “After the Crash.” Rubino told me, “There will be lots of good investments from tech to undervalued assets after the crash. This will be an optimistic book.” If you would like a copy of Rubino’s latest book “The Money Bubble,” click here. If you would like to visit Dollarcollapse.com, click here.

    Your forte’, ” So what does this look like for the man on the street?”

    As you can see, this govmnt will do ANYTHING , EVEN MURDER, ANYTHING, TO KEEP THEMSELVES FLOATING.

    It is my opinion, as J. R. suggests, they will make gold and silver ILLEGAL TO OWN, OR trade, and whistleblowers will be rewarded, if they turn in, a gold owner, or seller. so what to do is the question.

    • Paul from Indiana

      Good observation! The “rat-out” system is the only way to make a cashless (surveillance) economy work. There is an additional benefit to those in control in that such a system creates disunity, conflict, and distrust in the populace. As I often say, the only way we get through the coming BS is TOGETHER. Best always. PM

    Greg: I know I must sound like a broken record, but yes – yet another fantastic interview of yet another superb guest! John Rubino is quite possibly one of the individuals most responsible for my awakening back in 2006. Although for many of us on this site (your regular audience) the valuable information presented in this interview probably just reinforces what we already know, it more importantly serves as a tool to help awaken the vast majority of the people who continue to slumber, believing the false government and MSM propaganda. I found the (just over 2-minute) dialogue between 17:50 – 20:00 particularly enlightening – your astute question is one I often ponder and Mr Rubino´s answer is brilliant and right on target. Greg, I honestly believe that you and your site are vital weapons on ¨The side of Good¨ in this ongoing war in which our word is submerged. I sense that time is short – thank you for what you do my friend.

    • Greg Hunter

      Thank you Armando for your comment and kind words of support.

    • Stan

      I fear the truth is the masses will demand that the government punish the “horders” of gold and silver. Those who havent prepared and are dependent on government to eat will not like the fact that you have gold and silver. They will see your gains as exploytation and the cause of their missery. The government will be very happy to stir the pot of discontent and transfer any blame to the prepared. I believe the government will step in and tax any gold or silver transaction at 70%-100%, and the masses will chear…

    I am listening to this a 2nd time and I forgot u said , with hand motions, “my family wont listen to my site, even though I have guys like you, (rubino) w/mba, and more guests reputable; lol

    Jim Willie says the same thing, even with all the stats, his brother, who is an accountant, ignores him. lol

    the pastor of the church yesterday preached around the hobby lobby issue, and MORE and said;
    “we need to stand up and get the word out and be a part, and yada yada yada.” so my wife is explaining it to my sons wife, and I am on the Jim willie interview with paul sandau; I look at her and say; “Isn’t this what I have been telling u for several yrs now, and NOW, your pastor preaches on this and more, and your excited, and want to tell others?”, BUT when I talk, u ignore me? she looks at me and says, “yeah”, and i chuckle.

    • Oracle 911

      Hi
      Greg did a great interview, again. Allen what I will say is based on this: http://sutr.info/content/about-cob-brief
      “Every specimen of Homo Sapiens can have one of the next types of psychical structure more or less stable during his or her adult life.
      · Animal type of psychical structure – when the whole behaviour obey instincts, and becomes a satisfaction of instinctive needs without considering the circumstances;
      · Biorobotical-zombie type of psychical structure – when culture-defined automatisms comes as the basis of behavior, and the inner conflict between instincts and culture-defined automatisms is solved for the last in the majority of cases. But if changing social and historical circumstances demand to reject the traditional norms of behavior and to work out new ones, “zombie” declines the creation and continue following the already-formed customs;
      · Under the demonic type of psychical structure one understands that its representatives are able to create and using their will can overpass the dictation of instinct and historically formed culture. They can work out new lines of behavior and of solving problems appearing before them and the society. Whether it will be a good or evil, as others understands them, depends on “demon’s” real morality. Getting any power in the society demonism demands an unconditional service to it, creating the most cruel and subtle forms of depressing the people;
      · Human type of psychical structure is characterized like this: every its bearer realizes the mission of a human – to be the God’s [the Creator’s] representative on the Earth. Consequently he or she makes his relations with the God [the Creator] during his or her life, and consciously, with his or her own ill, sincerely contribute to the God’s [Creator’s] Providence in the way he or she understands it. The feedback (showing one’s mistakes) is closed from Above in a way that he (or she) founds himself (or herself) in the certain circumstances correlating to the sense of his (or her) prays and intentions. In other words: the God [the Creator] speaks to people using the language of life’s circumstances.”

      The sad news is, the general population is zombified or rather they have mindset of zombies/biorobot (at best), they are acting acting someones programs or according someones commands see your family or our families.
      The tricky question is, what type of psyche we have (as visitors or owner of this site)?
      Certainly not animal type, zombie/biorobot or highly moral demon maybe (if you want power to boss around everybody, just because you want them the best)? But I personally think, close to Human or outright Human.

      Your thoughts.

      • Oracle 911

        And I forgot to mention, animal types of psyche tends to hedonism, which is straightforward way to hell, look at the ancient Rome.

        By the way, the Russians may came up with energy Ruble:
        http://sutr.info/content/quest-national-idea-%C2%ABenergy-ruble%C2%BB-bound-be-hardest-currency
        -but instead of kWh of electrical energy they will peg their currency to thermal energy units in fuels BTU. The reasons are simple:
        -the electricity is generated, and the process have efficiency between 20-35% maximally 45% (yeah about the 50% or more of the fuel is gone/unused);
        -both can be converted into/are J (Joules) but, the thermal energy of fuels are more widely used for example the combustion motors of cars, trucks etc;
        -the BTU is already here and used for at least 100 years.

        BTW way Dr Jim Willie mentioned something similar, the currencies of BRICS and associates may/will be pegged to some kind of physical entity or standard.

        Your thoughts.

    Thanks for having John on the show
    Just a caveat:
    While gold silver and farmland are good hedges against bad outcomes, unfortunately, no wealth presevation strategy is fool proof.

    Gold and silver can be confiscated, subject to massive surtaxes, manipulated http://smaulgld.com/gold-silver-price-manipulation/, or stolen.

    Land can be confiscated (on bogus charges of illegal activity taking place on it) reappropriated for the common good or overtaxed.

    • allen ols

      agreed, tks; these world gvmnts, banks, etc, have shown they will go to EXTREME lengths, to protect their thing, greed, at anybody elses cost, even using nail guns, ropes near chandeliers, people falling off tall bldg’s and even comfiscation, see M. F. global. so as i told BOB CHAPMAN, AND JIM WILLIE, If amerika wants canadas gold, or the gold off of eric sprotts gold plated windows, they only need place one M1A1 tank near the building and order sprott out. see how we stole sadaams gold, gadaffies gold, now ukrains 33k tonnes of gold. well, anything of value is theirs for the taking. farm land, railroads, trucking, shipping, yada yada.

      Or as was seen in the Bolshevik takeover in Czarist Russia (1917), so-called property rights can simply be voided, just as we are currently in the process of doing with the 1st, 2nd, and 4th amendments. Best always. PM

  6. Anne Elliott

    Mr. Rubino started sounding like C. Austin-Fitts there at the last – be self-sufficient and make yourself indispensable. These two things just make the most sense for any calamity that happens in the future. And for both of those I would think that includes learning a trade like carpentry, or plumbing, or masonry, or growing food to sell – all of which are going to be needed if/when the system does fail.

  10. Jerry

    Thanks Greg for having John Rubino on. He had some very good advice on how to prepare for the “PLANNED” collapse. To give you an idea of just how far down the financial rabbit hole we’ve gone, I’m going to give you this illustration . If I were to give you a choice between a $1.00 bill or a 1964 quarter, which one would you choose?
    Obviously the quarter right?
    http://cointrackers.com/coins/494/1964-washington-quarter/
    The 1964 quarter is worth up to $14.00 in value. Why? Because of the amount of silver that is in it. What does that tell you? The dollar isn’t worth a 1964 nickel!

    That should also tell you, that the people who are running the world economic systems, are not making any money off the dollar anymore, and are planning to replace it. It should be obvious by now, that the establishment of a new Chinese backed Yuan system is no accident. They have purposely suppressed the markets as a funneling mechanism into their new exchange system. Once the system is in place, and they collapse the dollar (which will be soon) they will make a killing off of hyperinflation, as people exit the old failing Britton Woods System. Again. Who do you think owns the Federal Reserve Bank?

    • Geo. T (Formerly George)

      Jerry,
      Your calculations on the silver content of a 1964 US 90% silver quarters are way off. You have a value of $14 while the actual value of the silver content is $3.80 at todays price of $20.96/troy oz. for 5.625 grams of silver.
      And you are you claiming the Chinese own the Fed Reserve?

      • Jerry

        George. Do you read? I have never said the Chinese owns the Fed. The City of London Corp. does. As far as silver, click the link to coin trackers. That’s the figure I used. Sorry you couldn’t get it.

        • Galaxy 500

          I think he reads that.the numismatic valueay be $14 for an uncirculated coin but the silver content is three buks eighty. If things get.bad, I dont think numismatic value is something you’re going to be able to.trade it.
          Just my two cents….I know I am not valuing anything other than PM content

    I love your show………the thing that really makes me mad is when people say “we been borrowing too much money”…….I have paid back every penny that I have ever borrowed,therefore when the government,media,or who ever talks about the debt that “we’ have ran up…….it gets me really mad ,like the guy said,the working man had nothing to do with this,the bankers and welfare queens maybe!

    Greg,
    It is an interesting article “A Journey To China’s Largest Ghost City.”
    This article that takes on a completely different angle regarding the Chinese ghost cities than many other reports I’d read about them. In my opinion you can only make a fair judgement about anything if you have considered all angles. After reading this my views of the Chinese real estate market had certainly changed.

    Hi Greg
    Thanks for having Mr. Rubio on. Having read over and over about gold and silver being the insurance one needs for the unravelling of the money / currency shitstorm about to happen, there is one nagging question I have. That is, given the obvious computer records of every citizen that bought and took possession of said PMs, and given the means and likelihood the surveillance state will eventually want to know who the private hoarders are that has the gold, what’s to stop certain ‘gold squads’ from kicking down your door at 4 in the morning and taking your PMs — for national security reasons of course ?

  14. wd

    ‘It became necessary to destroy the town to save it’,
    Greg this was an infamous quote from the Vietnam War. It seems so appropriate for today’s USA. It is as if we “have to let it destroy itself in order for it all to eventually work out”

    I hear so many scenarios for collpase, that I have no doubt its approach is nearly here. My question is that when it does take place, what will thi “post USA” look like.

    I here about FEMA camps, troopr, foreign troops etc. Wealth tax, pension tax, bail ins etc, but what happens when it has no value will the federal governmnet just collpase will their workers just leave, walk off the job, What would be the incentive to stay on guard duty.

    Would we go back to a state dominated country, would those break down as well? I went to New Orleans to help my brother leave during Hurricane Katrina, and I have a feeling the landscape will look more like this than any organized chaos.

    Thank you!

    • Ugly

      wd….

      It is probably a collapse first, then followed by confiscation and a purging….there are too many useless eaters, thus billions must go….according to the Bible, it will be the worst of times ever and if The Lord did not return, virtually no one would survive.

      But first, the anti-Christ system must be usshered in. If he is here today and walking around, then the end days are here….

    as it were ” the sticks” . far away from the major population areas were the people will riot when things go bad.
    Loved your point of why most people won’t listen to the experts you have on? We have over played “yelling wolf to often”. My friend Lindsey Williams has said this collapse was scheduled years ago. But, the elite delayed it because they were ready and they want much more debt of all part of the country, people, counties, states, country, etc. This is happen at a rapid rate.
    GREAT INTERVIEW.

  16. Tommy

    Let’s face it. There is no “safe” investment that will allow you to sidestep a calamity. Gold? The government can confiscate it. Real estate? The government can tax it or just plain take it. Assets is foreign countries? How will you get to them? If things get really bad do you think the government is going to let you travel to Switzerland to get some gold? Whatever you have can be taken or stolen.

    • Greg Hunter

      Well Tommy you should just give up now.
      Greg

      • Fraser

        It is a matter of degree. In the worst case, Tommy is absolutely correct. Which is why we must act NOW to prevent that worst case scenario. My political solution would help this by diverting blame from the innocent (many) to the guilty (few), allowing society to remain marginally functional.

    • Ugly

      Tommy,
      They cannot confiscate everything in one day. Why not have some stuff for the early phases of the collapse. You should at a minimum have some stored foods….

      • Tommy

        Because if things get that bad, is life worth living? Sort of like trying to survive a nuclear holocaust by living underground the rest of your life.

        • mark

          Tommy,
          As George (formerly Geo T) commented, “what a defeatist attitude”. However, I would agree with you concerning the utter futility of existence in this current paradigm if it were not for the hope of the faith of the Lord Jesus Christ (crucified for our offenses and raised for our justification, ever living to intercede for our perfection, appearing in glory for our glorification), contained in the sixty-six books of the Bible and conveyed to us by His Holy Spirit. For even Peter speaks of such a futility in his first letter when he writes; “knowing that it was not with corruptible things, little coins of gold and silver that you were redeemed (purchased back) from your vain (futile) manner of life handed down to you from your fathers, but with precious blood as of a lamb without spot and without blemish, the blood of Christ, Who was foreknown before the foundation of the world, but was manifested in the last of times for your sake, Who through Him believe into God Who raised Him from the dead and gave Him glory , so that your faith and hope are in God” (1 Peter 1:18-19). Ultimately it is about much more than gold, guns and groceries. Man basically succumbed to the dreadful results of sin as a result of Adam’s transgression and while silver and gold were recognized as being real money and could be used by one who was enslaved to purchase his or her freedom, only the Blood of the Lord Jesus could pay the price to free us from the slavery of corruption and death and secure for us an eternal inheritance in the glory of eternal life, the Son’s own relationship in the Bosom of the Father. Read Paul’s account in Romans 5. Through one man sin entered into the world and death through sin and so death passed on to all men because all have sinned. But, He (the Lord Jesus) was manifested that He might destroy him that has the power of death, that is the devil, so that He might release those who because of the fear of death were held in slavery all of their lives. (Hebrews). When Christ our life is manifested then we also shall be manifested in glory (Colossians). For
          the anxious watching of the creation eagerly awaits the manifestation of the sons of God.(Romans 8). Tommy, you me and all of us have an opportunity by faith in the good news of Jesus as the Christ to receive the reconciliation God has offered to the whole of humanity by faith and not only receive the forgiveness of sins and thus be spared from suffering the just penalty of eternal destruction in torment away from the presence of the glory of Him in Whose image we were created and whose glory we have been called to share, but we are given the opportunity to be re-gene-erated unto a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead unto an inheritance that is incorruptible and undefiled and unfading kept in the heavens for you who are being guarded by the power of God unto a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time (see First Peter chapter 1). The early apostles realized a direct link between the resurrection event of the Lord Jesus as the foretaste or guarantee of what the God who raised His Son from among the dead would do in them by the same power which operated in raising Jesus from among the dead and giving Him glory and realized that their destiny was in fact secured because He Who was the Only Begotten Son of God had now through death burial and resurrection become the Firstborn among many brothers by regeneration, or ” birth- from-above” spiritually by incorruptible seed through the living Word of God. Our citizenship, Paul writes, is in the heavens from which we eagerly await a Savior Who will transfigure this body of humiliation conforming it to the body of His glory by the same power with which He is able to subject all things to Himself. (Philippians). The New World Order totalitarian system is not the eternal destiny of those who have believed on and hope in the appearing of the Lord Jesus Christ. He has paid the price by His precious blood to redeem fallen humanity out from under an existence dominated by Sin’s cruel reign, an existence fraught with futility and vain glory which passes into the ashes of death and decay and instead has secured for us one that is destined for a share of the eternal inheritance in the glory with Him Who is the Firstborn of many brothers as those who have been graced in the Beloved, the One in Whom the Father of glory finds His delight. Christ in us is the Hope of Glory. Maranatha!! The Lord Comes!

        The guns will be the first to be taken, then the black market gold will be held illegal, after that is anyone’s guess.

        • Tommy

          Exactly Art. What most people don’t understand is that Obama is not incompetent or out of the loop. Things are happening exactly as he has planned. When he said he wanted to “fundamentally change America” most people didn’t stop to think about what that meant. The middle east, the southern border, the uncontrollable debt, the complete lawlessness at the top of government are not accidents. People think that we will still be a nation of laws and that the rule of law will continue as is was in the past. But we are entering a new paradigm.

          • Country Codger

            Hi Tommy,
            From my point of view it is not impossible. I have seen four different nations collapse (while I was in them) and I have seen what people do to each other in a collapse. If you want to survive you have to change your mindset from that of dependent to independent. In 1999/2000 I made $300k in bonuses alone. Today I live quite well on less than $10,000.00. I changed my lifestyle and philosophy. Interestingly enough, I lost everything in my divorce 12 years ago and had to start from scratch, so nothing I had when times were good helped me get a fresh start. There is still time to change the direction your are going but you will have to hurry. It will take commitment and dedication but it is still possible.

            Good luck and God bless,

    Greg,

    I don’t know if I speak for others or not, but this is becoming drudgery to keep hearing about the coming collapse. I think we need to start hearing from folks who might be able to paint the picture as to what “after” might look like and what can all of the enlightened folks do to survive and possibly thrive. I get all the PM talk, but I havent been able to get there due to many factors. just tired of hearing about all of the negativity and ready to focus on how we come out of this alive and maybe even thriving. I am in the middle of buying an acreage so being debt free isnt going to happen for me right now. Am I doomed? God I hope and pray not.

    Keep up your incredibly important work. It is a breath of continual fresh air in a very polluted world. Pax.

      OP – could not agree more. I have even turned off PCR now – doom and gloom are interesting for ten years, but eventually you have to turn your mind towards finding a solution. Even Greg’s guests are getting repeatitive / collapse / PMs / buy my book / collapse / PMs. While Americans might think “this is my fate, how can I make money from it”, we Australians simply refuse to accept that fate! And I will keep looking for a solution so long as I have a heart-beat – and I invite others to join in.

      That said, I think that I am already very close with my comments last week – getting about five US Senators to stop playing the political game itself and instead band together to form a group of Umpires – to block all un-Constitution legislation and protect the people (from Government) by re-establishing the rule of law. Hopefully the new broom will sweep clean and the corruption trials will be interesting!

      Does anyone have contact details for the Independet Senators Angus King (Maine) and Bernie Sanders (Vermont) and Independent hopeful Thomas Ravenel (Texas). Does anyone have contact details for any other Senator who might be disillusioned and have a desire to become a National hero? With a few phone calls, we could sort everything out in a jiffy – don’t make me come over there and do it all myself!

      • Fraser

        OK, I’ve emailed King and Sanders and now Paul & Cruz are next. I understand that the following Senators are NOT interested in defending the Constitution : McCain, Biden, Reid, Feinstein, Leahy, Durbin, Schumer, Murray, Bennet, McConnell, Rockefeller. But this still leaves a few possibles. Can anyone help me narrow this down? (I just need to sow ONE thought seed)…

      OP,

      I agree. I dont think this is perfectly planned out. They may have tried it but it got way out of control. I remember as a kid areas around our land had “controlled burns” for weeds etc. about 15-20% of the time the fire got outof control. But before every burn we were always told “it would all be fine”. It never was. I am convinced this is out of control, completely, like a ponzi scheme.

      Wonder why the rest of the world is jumping from the dollar and the US influencs ( Self-preservation).

      I want to hear wht a post US will look like, will there even be an authority governmnet. Will US become independent states and rise to their true power as they should have had all along? What happens when people cant cash checks and food stores are closed and farmers are not coming to population centers. Do you really think, the local police and the Ant guard or whatever “troops” will guard and watch over us when their families are in danger. Do you really think because a town has a left over amored vehicle from Iraq is going to make a difference. I think not.

      We are at the brink of war in the Ukraine, this is desparation; not some planned out callusion from a bunch of over educated Ivy leaguers with an inferiority complex.

    So true Greg when you and John Rubino speak of the abnormal becoming the new acceptable norm, whereby people get lulled into assuming that everything will continue just the same. Seven years back before I retired I remember writing about the money printing, whilst assuming that the world’s economies had to implode at any moment. But here we are seven years on and the crevasse has simply widened and deepened into something more terrifying still.
    Just like the Muscovites who while knowing that Napoleon’s armies were advancing preferred not to escape into the cold winter night, allowed themselves a few more hours of warm sleep before getting slaughtered in their thousands.

  23. Jim G

    Greg, there seems to be a common thread with most of the people you interview. They all agree there is an economic/financial crash coming but don’t seem to be all that concerned about it. Basically, just hunker down for a while and wait for things to get back to normal is what I keep hearing.

    On the other hand, I sense you are more realistic about what is coming as it won’t take long for civil unrest to explode around the country with urban areas and beyond looking like Los Angeles in 1992. Martial law will be declared and the full extent of what has been brewing will become evident. Why say you on this?

    Perhaps you can get Joel Skousen to come on and get his take on what people should be doing to prepare for what is coming down the pike. Telling people to buy some hard assets and invest in some foreign currencies is just not going to cut it. Nor will storing a little water, stocking some can goods and buying a gun or two. Time to get real people.

    • Greg Hunter

      Jim G,
      Oh I’d say they are very concerned about what is coming. The better you prepare the better it will be for you. I think there is a quote in the Bible that says something like: the rain falls on the wicked and the good. We will all get wet but some are going to have dry towels and tents.

    Greg what is it about the American people that they don’t get that we are being isolated by the world economies?

    Is it simply because its not up in their grill? Or is because they think the world loves us so much? I just don’t get it.

  25. Alarmed

    Mr. Rubino says that the banking system owns our government, and I certainly concur. But he also mentions how “wrong” decisions are being made by governments world wide. I propose that they are wrong from the viewpoint that they are “doing as they are told” just like Christine Lagarde. I do not for one minute believe that the financial events being played out globally is an anomaly. It is planned. That doesn’t mean, “And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand.” Sooner or later, this will all come tumbling down, but it is going to take a while. Currently, everything is going as “plan,” and for the short term, it isn’t going to be pretty. For the long term, people better get their house in order.

    Didn’t Obama say that “he” (or did he meant “they?”) wanted 100% tax. (No) wealth tax can be manifested in all sorts of devious ways.

        Greg, it makes since if the gov wants control, when they stop you, they search & take the declared illegal gold.

      • Paul from Indiana

        Well, they sure as heckfire will start with people like us who have created electronic trails via our comments here and elsewhere. I think that the push toward the cashless system we now hear rumblings about, complete with IRS compliance- and citizen “rat-out” -systems will be the last piece of the puzzle prior to the bust. And that is why I emphasize the idea of co-operative, committed groups for survival, where the possibility of the “rat-out” is minimized if not eliminated. Best always. PM

        • Alarmed

          “And that is why I emphasize the idea of co-operative, committed groups for survival, where the possibility of the “rat-out” is minimized if not eliminated.”
          I continue to read about “committed groups” of “like minded persons. I propose that it does not exist except in very rare circumstances, and this would be with very few people, say two families. Just about anyone would “rat out ” another person, including their own mother given the right set of circumstances. Didn’t that happen during WW2? With our entitlement mentality of, “Why should **you** have XYZ when *I* don’t.” is more than enough for their motivation. The fact that they did not work, plan, or pay for it, is obscured by their magical thinking.

        JULY 15th update.
        Greg I recently got some more information from my source about the event on July 15th. It seems this is more about an event that will drive up gold and silver prices, and not an economic collapse. Evidently this event will cause such volatility in the markets, it will cause the Russians and Chinese and the BRIC nations to decouple themselves from the dollar. I’m thinking in terms of loss of world reserve status, with Wall Street being the straw man. He went on to say that the final death blow (the end of the U.S. as we know it, and its economic functionality) would come in 2017. In other words this looks like a slow Catherin Austin Fitts type collapse paradigm, cascading to a final collapse in 2017. I don’t know if you caught it? But there’s that 7 again.

        • Jerry

          Just confirmed at 2:45 CST.
          The event that is happening on July 15th is setting up a August Silver moonshot.

          The plan goes something like this. Putin will step in and mop up Ukraine sometime this month, July 2014. Could take 30 days at most (?) The City will coordinate their slam of the Old Dollar via the Silver Market with that military action. When the new Silver Fix goes into effect mid-August, the slam down of the Dollar begins gradually as the City will take its profits on Silver volatility.

          All of this in preparation for the electronic substitute to the “silver fix” of the dollar. Boys and girls. Its coming.

      • EyesWideShut

        It’s all by design. The American people are not suppose to know what’s coming. This way the majority of the people can be taken by surprise and driven to ruin, and chaos and disorder (order out of chaos). This place will become a third world country. Having been to a few I know what life if like in such places. And what better way to help the US become third world then by bringing in hordes of people from the third world, such as what’s currently happening at the US border? This will help to further collapse an already collapsing economy by burdening it with hundreds of thousands of illegal people who need every thing! And notice how the US seems to be going out of its way to make enemies all over the place, even with current allies. ( http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-07-08/us-set-alienate-angry-germany-next-crackdown-shifts-bnp-commerzbank-deutsche-bank). US is clearly aware that the world is a changing fast, and every move it makes intentionally worsens the situation. It’s as if things are being done strategically to accelerate the coming collapse! Actually, that is what’s happening to bring about a NWO.

        They will succeed, and it will happen this year!

            Jerry, I appreciate your vigilance, your conviction, and your sharing what you learn. But I think most everyone who participates in this forum “gets” it. Given the secrecy involved and the volume of disinformation, it is only fair that there should be some discussion and disagreement as to details and timing. But most understand that the “Big One” is coming. It’s fairly obvious. The one variable in all of this is the American people. Not all of us are quitters or willing victims.

  31. Doug

    Greg, John Rubino was a great guest. His opinions, like those of your other guests will be vindicated soon, and should have been long before but for manipulation, sleight of hand, etc. My only recommendation is that he should have changed the book to “The Money Hindenburg”!
    I don’t, and never will understand why the vast majority of people (ESPECIALLY those with children) don’t take the time to at least listen to anyone other than the MSM. What happened to critical thinking? Do you think people are so stressed/overworked/mentally exhausted that they just cannot? Or do we as a society now officially like entitlements and the socialist lifestyle? Or both? Is it normalcy bias? Just like they will never “get it”, I don’t think I will ever figure them out.
    The next time any friend or economist tells you that they finally see the light at the end of the tunnel, ask them if that is what they really see, or if it is the light of an oncoming train… Those that don’t prepare will suffer greatly. That is why knowledge is power, because knowing what is coming in advance allows a reasonable person to blunt or avoid the tsunami quickly approaching the financial shoreline. As they say, Ingenium superat vires. Keep up the great work Greg and Illegitimi non carborundum. You remind me of what reporters used to be…

  32. Ken

    Hello Greg, nice interview but what I especially enjoyed was your summation of the machinations, tricks and deceptions the money changers are inventing to prolong their Ponzi scheme. There appears to be no end to their subterfuge. I think Mr Rubino was being kind when he stated governments are doing “crazy” things to cover their mistakes. I submit that those weren’t mistakes but calculated stratagem’s in their greed and lust. They probably can’t believe that humanity hasn’t stood up to them yet so why not go for the whole enchilada, global dominance and control, a new world order.

    Thank goodnes for Russia and China, the only two titans who can stand up to these psychopaths. Convenience guides US foreign policy but it has spun out of control. “Democracy” is supported for the Junta (Neo Nazi Svoboda party) in Ukraine who overthrew a democratically elected government by a collective Ukraine. In Syria where Asaad was reelected by the majority of the sovereign Syrian people we support the Al Qaeda/ Syrian Freedon Fighters/ISIS/ISIL/etc. let’s call them what they are, Langley created and supported terrorists. Now we are fighting the same group of terrorists in Iraq. This isn’t what people call a mess it is psychotic!

    We aren’t trying to maintain the US dollar reserve currency hegemony, we are intentionally destroying the US dollar and are forcing alliances against the dollar. How else can you explain our foreign policy?

    Any way you slice it this will not end well for the average American.

    If you are at all paying attention, please prepare, the writing on the wall doesn’t get any more clear! How severe this will be, who knows but I think it is better to be prepared than have the opposite occur. If the “conspiracy theorists” which includes me, are wrong you won’t have lost anything, but if!

  33. John M.

    Excellent interview Greg.
    I have always enjoyed listening to Rubino and Turk, they are very bright guys who understand exactly what’s going on with all this monetary madness and criminal activity. Their books are priceless and at the front of my shelves.
    I am also surprised how long the gangster banks and our bought-off governments have been able to keep whole economies from coming unglued. But it won’t last much longer.
    I worry that our government has become way too accustomed to lying, stealing, and killing to stop now. When will the drones and hollow-point bullets be turned on Americans who can think on their own and not want to play this losing game with paper money– especially with the ways they have been managing the dollar?
    Let us never allow the Thought Police to stop us from thinking and acting like Free Americans! I think they will use the cover of war and drought as the major reasons for why energy and food will start rising much more quickly in the weeks and months ahead.

    Daniel 11:40-41) And in the time of the end the king of the south will engage with him in a pushing, and against him the king of the north will storm with chariots and with horsemen and with many ships; and he will certainly enter into the lands and flood over and pass through. He will also actually enter into the land of the Decoration
    Most Christians believe that the totality of evidence points to the Anglo-American dual world power as the last “king of the south” of a succession of ‘kings of the south’ that ends during “the time of the end”. The term “the king of the north” seems to refer to the current embodiment of totalitarian opposition to that “king of the south”, such as Nazi Germany and later the Communist Bloc during the twentieth century. Christians do not pretend to be certain that Communist China represents the current embodiment of “the king of the north”, and in fact it seems possible that Islamic fascism may hold the position during these early years of the twenty-first century.
    They do believe that “the land of Decoration” refers to true Christianity, which has been attacked but never overtaken by totalitarianism.
    Some Christians refer to the United Nations as being “the eighth world power.” Is not the Anglo-American, the Seventh World Power, the last world power in bible prophecy?

    BRITAIN AND THE UNITED STATES RISE TO POWER
    We can identify the seventh head of the wild beast of Revelation chapter 13 by comparing John’s vision with Daniel’s vision of the frightening ten-horned beast. (Read Daniel 7:7, 8, 23, 24.) The beast that Daniel saw represented the Roman World Power. In the fifth century C.E., the Roman Empire began to fragment. The ten horns sprouting from the head of that fearsome beast represent kingdoms that grew out of that empire.
    Four of the horns, or kingdoms, that sprouted from the head of the ferocious beast receive special mention. Three are plucked out by another horn, “a small one.” This was fulfilled when Britain, a former outpost of the Roman Empire, grew to prominence. Until the 17th century, Britain was a relatively insignificant power. Three other regions of the old Roman Empire—Spain, the Netherlands, and France—were far more influential. Britain plucked those powers out one by one, removing them from their positions of prestige. By the mid-18th century, Britain was on its way to become the dominant power on the world scene. But it had not yet become the seventh head of the wild beast.
    Though Britain gained dominance, colonies in North America broke away. Even so, the United States was allowed to grow mighty, protected by British naval power. By the time the first world war began in 1914, Britain had built the largest empire in history and the United States had become the greatest industrial power on earth. During the War , the United States forged a special partnership with Britain. The seventh head of the beast had now emerged as the Anglo-American World Power.
    THE ANGLO-AMERICAN WORLD POWER AND THE FEET OF IRON AND CLAY
    What is the relationship between the seventh head of the wild beast and the immense image? Britain—and by extension, the United States—grew out of the Roman Empire. What, though, about the feet of the image? They are described as an amalgam of iron and clay. (Read Daniel 2:41-43.) This description coincides with the time when the seventh head—the Anglo-American World Power—would come to prominence. Just as an iron structure mixed with clay is weaker than solid iron, so too the Anglo-American World Power is weaker than the power from which it emerged. How?
    At times, the seventh head of the beast has displayed iron-like characteristics. For example, it proved its power by winning World War I. During World War II, the iron-like power of the seventh head was also evident. After that war, the seventh head at times still displayed iron-like characteristics. However, from early on, that iron has been mixed with clay.
    God’s servants have long sought to understand the symbolic meaning of the feet of the image. Daniel 2:41 describes the mixture of iron and clay as one “kingdom,” not many. The clay, therefore, represents elements within the sphere of influence of the Anglo-American World Power, elements that make it weaker than the solid iron of the Roman Empire. The clay is referred to as “the offspring of mankind,” or the common people. (Dan. 2:43) In the Anglo-American World Power, people have risen up to claim their rights through civil rights campaigns, labor unions, and independence movements. The common people undermine the ability of the Anglo-American World Power to act with iron-like strength. Also, opposing ideologies and close election results that do not end up in a clear majority have weakened the power base of even popular leaders, so that they have no clear mandate to implement their policies. Daniel foretold: “The kingdom will partly prove to be strong and will partly prove to be fragile.”—Dan. 2:42; 2 Tim. 3:1-3.
    In the 21st century, Britain and the United States have continued their special partnership, often acting together in world affairs. The prophecies about the immense image and the wild beast confirm that the Anglo-American World Power will not be replaced by some future world power. This last world power may be weaker than that represented by the legs of iron, but it will not disintegrate on its own.
    Does the number of toes of the image have special meaning? Consider: In other visions, Daniel mentions specific numbers—for example, the number of horns on the heads of various beasts. Those numbers are significant. However, when describing the image, Daniel does not mention the number of toes. Therefore, the number seems no more significant than the fact that the image had multiple arms, hands, fingers, legs, and feet. Daniel does specifically mention that the toes would be made of iron and clay. From his description, we can conclude that the Anglo-American World Power is the one that will be dominating when the “stone” representing God’s Kingdom hits the feet of the image.—Dan. 2:45.
    ANGLO-AMERICA AND THE TWO-HORNED WILD BEAST
    Though the Anglo-American World Power is a mixture of iron and clay, the visions that Jesus gave to John show that this power would continue to play a key role during the last days. How so? John saw a vision of a two-horned wild beast that spoke like a dragon. What does this strange beast represent? It has two horns, so it is a dual power. John is again seeing the Anglo-American World Power but in a special role.—Read Revelation 13:11-15.
    This wild beast promotes the making of an image of the wild beast. John wrote that the image of the beast would appear, disappear, and then rise again. That is exactly what happened to an organization promoted by Britain and the United States, one that was intended to unite and represent the world’s kingdoms. This organization appeared after World War I and was known as the League of Nations. It disappeared with the onset of World War II. During that war, God’s people declared that according to the prophecy in Revelation, the image of the wild beast would ascend again. And rise it did—as the United Nations.—Rev. 17:8.
    John described the image of the beast as “an eighth king.” In what sense? It is not depicted as an eighth head on the original wild beast. It is only an image of that beast. Any power it has comes from its member nations, especially from its key backer, the Anglo-American World Power. (Rev. 17:10, 11) But it does receive authority to act as a king to carry out a specific task, one that triggers a chain of events that will change history.
    THE IMAGE OF THE BEAST DEVOURS THE HARLOT
    According to John, upon a scarlet-colored wild beast—the image of the wild beast—rides a symbolic harlot, dominating it. She bears the name “Babylon the Great.” (Rev. 17:1-6) This harlot fittingly stands for all false religion, foremost of which are the churches of Christendom. Religious organizations have given their blessing to the image of the beast and have tried to exert influence over it.
    However, during these last day’s, Babylon the Great has seen the waters, the people who support her, dry up dramatically. (Rev. 16:12; 17:15) For example, when the image of the beast first appeared, the churches of Christendom—an influential part of Babylon the Great—dominated the Western world. Today, the churches and their ministers have lost the respect and support of the masses. In fact, many people believe that religion contributes to or causes conflict. An increasingly vocal and militant group of Western intellectuals is calling for the end of religion’s influence on society. False religion, however, will not just fade away. The harlot will remain a potent force, attempting to bend kings to her will until God plants an idea in the hearts of those in power. (Read Revelation 17:16, 17.) Soon Jehovah, through Christ Jesus will cause the political elements of Satan’s system, as represented by the United Nations, to attack false religion. They will destroy her influence and devastate her riches. Such an event may have seemed unlikely just decades ago. Today, the harlot teeters on the back of the scarlet-colored beast. Even so, she will not slip slowly from her seat. Her tumble will be sudden and violent.—Rev. 18:7, 8, 15-19.
    THE BEASTS COME TO THEIR END
    After false religion is destroyed, the wild beast, Satan’s earthly political setup, will be goaded into an attack on God’s Kingdom. Unable to reach into heaven, the kings of the earth will vent their rage on those on earth who support God’s Kingdom. The result is inevitable. (Rev. 16:13-16; 17:12-14) Daniel describes one aspect of the final battle. (Read Daniel 2:44.) The wild beast mentioned at Revelation 13:1, its image, and the two-horned wild beast will be destroyed.
    We are living in the days of the seventh head. No more heads will appear on this beast before it is annihilated. The Anglo-American World Power will be the dominant world power when false religion is eradicated. The prophecies of Daniel and John have been fulfilled to the smallest detail. We can be confident that the destruction of false religion and the battle of Armageddon will soon come. God has revealed these details in advance. Will we pay attention to the prophetic warnings? (2 Pet. 1:19) Now is the time to take sides with Jehovah and to support his anointed King and Kingdom.—Rev. 14:6, 7.

    P.S. In the Bible, the number ten often symbolizes a complete group—in this case, all the kingdoms that grew from the Roman Empire.
    Although the components of the dual world power have existed since the 18th century, John describes it as it would appear at the start of the Lord’s day beginning with war’s and rumor’s of war. In fact, the fulfillment of the visions recorded in Revelation takes place during “the Lord’s day.” (Rev. 1:10) It was not until World War I that the seventh head began operating as a united world power.
    Daniel foresaw the terrible destruction this king would cause during that war, writing: “In a wonderful [awful] way he will cause ruin.” (Dan. 8:24) For example, the United States caused terrible ruin on an unprecedented scale when it dropped two atomic devices on an enemy of the dual world power. WHO MAKE UP “ALL THESE KINGDOMS”
    The prophecy at Daniel 2:44 states that God’s Kingdom “will crush and put an end to all these kingdoms.” That prophecy refers only to the kingdoms pictured by the various parts of the image.
    What about all other human governments? The parallel prophecy in Revelation reveals the larger picture. It shows that “the kings of the entire inhabited earth” will be gathered against Jehovah on “the great day of God the Almighty.” (Rev. 16:14; 19:19-21) Hence, not only the kingdoms of the image but also all other human governments will be destroyed at Armageddon.

      I find this all very confusing – much easier to be a Zen Buddhist and simply remember to “Kill the Buddha” – which means “stop worshipping and become”.

      • Michigander

        Fraser, I agree. I later thought that. But when I read Greg’s news post on the NSA spying and how they claim;

        [In NSA-intercepted data, those not targeted far outnumber the foreigners who are] ~ Excerpt below ~
        ‘Minimized U.S. president’
        At one level, the NSA shows scrupulous care in protecting the privacy of U.S. nationals and, by policy, those of its four closest intelligence allies — Britain, Australia, Canada and New Zealand.

        I mean there it is as Daniel in the Bible saw it, the present and last world power and I don’t want to offend you mate, but your part of it, just as I am and most of the Watchdogs, the Anglo/American dual world power. The world has never seen such a power before. Either Daniel was crazy or somebody’s been following his playbook and I like how it’s supposed to end and I’m afraid it don’t look to good for this present world today and the only hope we have is maybe a little divine intervention to help keep our freedom, as the sons of God!

          Michigander,

          Amen brother, and I am not being a wise guy. Really, Amen to that.

      Dear “I’m ah Michigan man”,
      You wrote, “Daniel foresaw the terrible destruction this king would cause during that war, writing: “In a wonderful [awful] way he will cause ruin.” (Dan. 8:24) For example, the United States caused terrible ruin on an unprecedented scale when it dropped two atomic devices on an enemy of the dual world power. WHO MAKE UP “ALL THESE KINGDOMS”
      The prophecy at Daniel 2:44 states that God’s Kingdom “will crush and put an end to all these kingdoms.” That prophecy refers only to the kingdoms pictured by the various parts of the image.”
      Personally, I don’t interpret this the way you…I think you pulled the atomic bomb stuff out of thin air but to each his own. I am sure a few here will believe as a couple here will believe anything.
      As a Christian, I incorporate God in everyday life as well as my safety preparations. I bought 12 Bibles from Costco a few years ago, divided them into two piles and after vacuum packing them individually, I put them in 2 Pelican hard cases with several other book packaged similarly. I think a good Bible will be worth its weight in gold in the coming economic troubles. Man needs more than bread, he needs the TRUE word of God.
      That being said, I disagree with your interpretation on almost everything you have above. There will be many false prophets and many who spread false information. I am not claiming you fit either of those categories. However, you stitch a verse from here and an verse from there claiming how that first your vision of history, personally, I think everyone should beware. The last time I heard a bunch of tripe like this was in Cola., SC in the mid 1970’s when a bunch of Jehovah’s Witnesses were convinced that the world was coming to an end. I remember it vividly because they had a HOT daughter and they were spending money like crazy and then they lost everything when the one true God disagreed with their fatally flawed calculations.
      Greg, I see the above post as dangerous as it is devised to lead the feeble minded astray. In my mind, God takes a dim view of those who weave these traps to catch people looking for God.
      If I want to read a Watch Tower, I’ll pick one up.
      Greg, I know that you are a Christian. I believe it is a Christian’s duty to protect our brothers from being lead astray. I know that you post a wide variety of points of view as you allow me the privilege to post here. Thank you for what you do, the information that you provide, and the forum where many come together to share information.

        Thank you for adding your counter-point perspective. We are all feeling our way through the dark.
        Greg

      • Michigander

        Geo, It was a terrible ruin on an unprecedented scale and it would have been a terrible ruin on an unprecedented scale if our guy’s had to go in there and take Japan with out those bombs. I had an Uncle at Pearl and he sure was glad Truman decided to use them and the kingdoms that God will crush are the kingdoms {governments}on earth when he decides to clean house, which despite the fact your girlfriend thought it should have been sooner , will be done in his own time and Jesus the son of God said nobody knows that day or hour but only his father. Like your girlfriend though I hope it’s sooner than later, because I aint gettin any younger and this old world needs an arse kicking, Sunni than later, in my humble opinion of course! And like Greg says were all feeling our way around in this darkness and if we decided to protect everybody like our politicians want to do for us nowadays there’d be no freedoms left for anybody to learn a damn thing!

        “A free press means a free people and a free USAWatchdog means a free and curious former George”

        PS. In the spirit of freedom of speech why don’t you tell us what you think Daniel prophesied for our day?
        I promise not to protect anybody from your opinions! let em fall were they may!

    I like your website and the intelligent comment threads very much. Some of the readers have asked how we can know the authorities will try to confiscate precious metal. I have been buying small quantities of gold coins in my country (Austria) recently, and each time the bank employees asked for my name and address as part of the transaction. They never used to do that in previous years. When I asked why, they simply said that those were the current rules/orders they worked under. They did not ask to see and ID documents, so I could have given a false name and address (only thought of it too late.)

    you are so right about being a crackpot. i asked the manager of my bank a few years ago, whats going to happen? he said the feds will just keep printing money. he don’t agree with the banks, but he says we will print our way out of this. my family and friends don’t want to here this. but my uncle over the past weekend said to me after telling him about your interview with steve quayle his answer was i need to pay more attention to the news cause he did not here that.
    how about veg gardening, fruit trees. are you using too much soap. a dime or less is all you need. look up the information. i have watched people doing the the dishes, use so much its incredible. watch your thermostat. the waste of food in the home is very big. at work sitting at lunch a guy looks over and sees that i have chicken for the 3rd day in row. he asks me about it and i replied, you have bought a sandwich for 3 days, i cooked this chicken that cost me $6 plus some charcoal. even using to much charcoal. i use chimney with paper, not lighter fluid. cheaper and healthier. i still have a few days left on it and you already spent the money on this chicken. think outside the box. you will be surprised at what you can save over and above what you had talked about greg. the internet is full of info.change your own oil. need directions? youtube and watch for sales at the auto parts store. each and everything you do will start to add up. before you know it, you will see a difference. lucky me my uncle is a electrician. my ac unit goes out. he fixes it with apart that only cost 20 bucks. he said this would have cost 300. laid it out for me. he was right. get to know people too. sometimes they can save you money. even if this would cost 150, it would have saved me 150.

  38. Roderick

    Greg often asks the person he is interviewing, “how will this effect the man on the street”. I am very happy he does this as it is my opinion that most of his guests have their house in order and are not stepping on the lower step on the economic ladder. It is the man (or woman) on the street that needs to hear this stuff and soon! There really is not much time to get a game plan. Thanks Greg.

    Greg,

    Last night Catherine Austin Fitts was on Coast to Coast am last night. I stayed up to listen to it.

    I just dont get her anymore, her interview was a cross between Pollyanna and Alice in Wonderland

    1) She said the stock market highs were legitimate

    2) That the retail sector was just “re-organizing” itslef but that even though Sears/Pennys etc were not doing well other brick and mortar were doing great like Starbucks??? Not even a comparable…oranges vs apples.

    3) Talked about emerging markets vs established markets….

    4) Didn’t mention war at all

    After this, I just turned it off!

    Greg, I am not sure she has anycredibility any more….IMHO

    Greg,
    People keeps saying here how strong the BRICS economies are. I keep hearing how the BRICS are going to be booming and awash in oil. Maybe like other things in SA, there is a reasonable amount of fraud involved and/or wishful thinking.
    “Maersk Takes $1.7 Billion Writedown on Brazil Oil Assets” http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2014-07-08/maersk-takes-1-7-billion-writedown-on-brazil-oil-assets.html
    Excerpt
    A.P. Moeller-Maersk A/S (MAERSKB) said its oil and gas business will take a $1.7 billion writedown on its oil assets in Brazil, becoming the latest explorer to draw a blank in the country’s energy boom.
    Maersk in 2011 purchased stakes in three oil blocks in Brazil for $2.4 billion, which it has now written down to $600 million, it said in a statement. The Copenhagen-based company, which said it will ax plans to acquire the operatorship of the three fields, maintained 2014 guidance for an “underlying profit” of about $4 billion.
    After state oil company Petroleo Brasileiro SA (PETR3) made several massive offshore discoveries, explorers rushed to acquire Brazil assets. Results have been mixed. BP axed staff after poor exploration results and OGX Petroleo (OGXP3) & Gas Participacoes SA went bankrupt when fields failed to perform as expected. While others including Repsol SA (REP) and BG Group Plc (BG/) have had more success increasing production, Petrobras has become the world’s most indebted oil explorer through a $220 billion plan to develop fields.

    love the dollar collapse site visit it everyday

  42. Jen

    Greg,
    Again, a great guest. Really enjoyed listening to John Rubino. Exceptionally bright man. Please have him on again.

  43. Michael

    Great guest Greg.
    Unfortunately most Americans will never accept the idea of a currency collapse until it occurs and will be completely unprepared when it does. The vast majority of the population reside in the cities and have neither the ability or skills to survive but a few weeks after a loss of confidence in the dollar, irregardless of how much food and bottled water one has managed to store. Life in the cities could become incredibly violent if essential infrastructure and supply chain systems break down and cannot be quickly restored. Martial law and other methods to control people could very well make the situation worse.
    At least from my perspective I would think having a few acres somewhere in the boonies where fruits and vegetable can be grown year round, a good water well, basic garden and hand tools, a propane generator and a large tank of propane would be much more preferable and reassuring than a few gold and silver coins. A used mobile home can be purchased for as little as twenty thousand dollars for shelter….a pretty cheap price compared to what you have to lose.

    What do you think of ultra short ETF stocks like QID. If the market falls then stocks like these should increase dramatically. But, these ETFs are based on derivatives and I have no idea if the derivatives are ‘safe’. Please ask one of your many knowledgeable guests the dangers of derivatives. Thanks.

    • Greg Hunter

      Henry,
      This is trading advise and I simply do like giving it. That said, the big worry is your brokerage pulling an MF Global on you. That is going to happen in spades in the next meltdown. Be careful trading this market. You should be concentrating on wealth protection and nothing else in my humble opinion.
      Greg

      • henry

        Thanks for the advice of “concentrating on wealth protection and nothing else”. I’m concerned that physical gold and silver will be stolen by the government and common thieves. The government may ban ownership of gold and silver by Americans. They can also put a windfall profit tax on it when you sell it. During a bank holiday, all metal may be removed from safety deposit boxes. If the government knows that you have significant gold/silver in your house, the swat team may relieve you of it. Putting all of my eggs in one basket seems dangerous.

        I’m reading “The Money Bubble” now and I see that Turk and Rubino answered my questions on the short ETFs. Their advice is to not own them because, over time, they are a guaranteed loser.

        Thanks again for introducing me to ideas and people that I would never have heard of.
