Jason Burack of Wall St for Main St interviewed returning guest, former corporate executive and phD scientist, Dr. Chris Martenson. Complex systems are held together by confidence, and the world we find ourselves facing in the months and years ahead will test that confidence to the core. It’s already starting to happen. Tune in for Dr. Martenson’s perspective.
TND Podcast Spotlight: Wall St for Main St
Jason Burack of Wall St for Main St interviewed returning guest, former corporate executive and phD scientist, Dr. Chris Martenson. Chris co-created The Crash Course and Peak Prosperity website (click here) with Adam Taggart and they also co-authored their new book, Prosper!: How to Prepare for the Future and Create a World Worth Inheriting in November 2015. Since he quit his corporate job over a decade ago, Chris has since become an expert on many topics.
During this 40+ minute interview, Jason and Chris have a wide ranging discussion on a number of topics including:
1) Why he thinks gold and gold stocks have rallied so strongly since December 2015?
2) Are mainstream money managers losing all remaining confidence in the Federal Reserve and other central banks?
3) Will the stock market crash if obvious daily stock market manipulations are occurring?
4) Why haven’t more shale oil companies gone bankrupt when the oil price went below $40/barrel WTI?
5) Will new technology from Silicon Valley be able to drastically reduce the usage of oil around the globe in only a decade?
6) Why isn’t there more clean water available?
7) Many experts cite the Simon–Ehrlich wager from 1980 to 1990 as justifying that over the long term all commodity prices have to fall. But, despite what economic textbooks say should be happening, things have drastically changed since China joined the WTO and commodity prices are nearly all in long term uptrends and the cost of production for many commodities rises 10% or more yearly. What type of real world limits are there preventing commodity prices from declining over the long term that maybe was not seen or not available when this bet was made?
