Ted Sudol interviews Paul Mladjenovic at www.preciousmetalsinvesting.com about the energy sector. The oil boom fueled a lot of debt. Energy companies that pile on debt are now having problems servicing that debt. Saudi Arabia produced at high levels to cause difficulty for high cost producers like the shale oil producers. They now are forced to pump at high levels and low oil prices for revenue to meet their people's needs. Add the nuclear deal with Iran which ends the sanctions and allows them to sell oil into a market that is already glutted. Now you have too much capacity chasing a diminishing world demand as the world's economy slows. There are tankers full of oil idling offshore in search of a place to store their oil but the oil tanks on land are already filled to capacity.

Debt Collapse

Debt Collapse

Debt Collapse is in the news today with the default of Puerto Rico on it's debt. That follows other government debt crises like the Greek debt Crisis. This audio is the third part in our crisis series that was originally posted in a video you can find here at www.preciousmetalsinvesting.com You can still find that video on the site but many of our viewers wanted a way to get precious metals investing tips on the go. Let me know what you think.

In this audio interview Paul Mladjenovic, author of Stock Investing for DummiesStock Investing For Dummies Talks about corporate, government, and personal debt crises. As Paul says if there is a debt collapse and the borrower does not pay back what is owed the entity like a government still survives it the country just doesn't disappear. What happens is the lender has to write off the debts and there are consequences. Many of those government bonds that are being written off are being held in retirement accounts. So of course that affects the yield on retirement funds that are paying millions of people. Or those debts are being held by banks and as in the case of Greece they have a buy-in which means they take money from their depositors accounts. Or again as in Greece the government imposes austerity measures which affects the like of millions of their citizens.

It always seems that the banks, hedge fund managers, stock brokers that made these risky bets that failed don't pay. It is always the citizens that pay. Governments don't produce any money - they spend other people's money. They may make it appear that the debt't are being paid through various "stimulus" methods such as the QE programs where trillions of dollars of new money are created out of thin air by simply making some changes in the digital digits on some computers. But the tremendous inflation of the money supply means that the value of each individual dollar is decreased. So some lenders are paid back - but they are paid back in dollars that are only worth a fraction of what they once were worth. Since 1903 the value of a dollar, in terms of real buying power, has lost 97% of its value.

Fed Rate Hike and Your Future

Fed Rate Hike

and Your Future

What will the Fed Rate Hike mean for the stock market and precious metals

The Fed Rate Hike has been in the news lately. Some commentators think that there won't be any effects. They say the rate hike is a measure of the strength of the recovery. Other commentators feel that the economy is still weak and this will start a cascade of negative effects. In this audio interview at www.preciousmetalsinvesting.com I talk with Paul Mladjenovic, author or Stock Investing For Dummies, on what he thinks it means for the stock market, the precious metals market and the future for investors.

I don't know if you feel as I do that a drop of the stock market of over 300 points negates the argument that there won't be any effects and I think that we will see increasing economic repercussions.

One of the reasons it is wise to invest in the precious metals is for diversification We have seen how some of the junk bond funds have told their investors lately that they can't get their money out. That has made other investors in junk bond funds nervous and has lead to some big withdrawal numbers.

Paul quoted the old investment saying "The only thing better than return on your money is the return of your money." In many ways the highly leveraged debt is like a game of musical chairs. When the music suddenly stops the investor who has not diversified and has protected himself loses.

Richard Maybury

Discusses War, Currency Debasement, Precious Metals Investing,and Geopolitics

Richard Maybury is one of the world's top free market thinkers and in this wide ranging interview at www.preciousmetalsinvesting.com we talk about investing, war, politics and precious metal investing. Richard's long term view is not in terms of years but decades. The two things you can depend upon that politicians and governments give us you can use to guide your investments are War and Currency Debasement.

Richard talks about the geopolitical situation are now in and how we got here.

Richard is the author of 22 books including The Great Monetary Calamity series. One of his book series, the Uncle Eric books, are written in the form of letters written from a favorite uncle to his nephew. One of Mr. Maybury's greatest strengths is his ability put financial concepts, monetary concepts, and geopolitical concepts in terms that are clear and easy to understand.

The Early Warning Report, Richard's Newsletter, has been read by government officials, the CIA and individual investors. You can find more information and a sample newsletter at www.earlywarningreport.com

There are two things you can always depend on politicians and governments to create that you can use to guide your investments - War and Monetary Debasement. History has shown governments always return to War and Monetary Debasement and you are relatively save basing your long term investment strategy on them. To forecast what investments will do you need to forecast what governments wll do. Richard shows you the strategy that has been doing very well for them for the past 20 years.

Precious metals have enduring value because they can't be created by simply switching on the government printing press. In fact today it doesn't even take that much effort to debase the currency - all it takes today is some manipulation of the computer digital digits.
