Jason Hartman talks with Daniel Amerman about the likely results of the recent multi-trillion dollar increase in the debt limit. Dan is a Chartered Financial Analyst with MBA and BSBA degrees in finance.  More at: http://jasonhartman.com/radioshows/. He is a financial author and speaker with over 25 years of professional experience.   Years of studying the costs of paying for over $100 trillion of US government retirement promises, as well as the costs of cashing out an expected $44 trillion of Boomer pensions and retirement accounts, have convinced him that too many promises and too much paper wealth chasing too few real resources will likely lead to substantial inflation in the years ahead, with potentially devastating implications for many savers and investors.  A problem that will also apply to many other nations.

Mr. Amerman spent much of the 1980s as an investment banker helping Savings & Loans and others try to survive the effects of the last major bout of inflation in the United States.  There is a basic economics principle that much of the public is unaware of – inflation doesn’t directly destroy the real wealth of goods and services, but rather, redistributes the rights to that real wealth (a principle which unfortunately will likely destroy much of the investment wealth the Boomers plan on enjoying in retirement).  The author worked with the effects of billions of dollars of such wealth redistributions, and saw how there was not only a loser for each dollar of wealth redistributed – but a winner.

AMA 36 – Don’t Sell Your Gold or Silver…Yet!

Jason Hartman talks with James Anderson, managing director of GoldSilver.com, about the historical cycles of gold and silver and other precious metals, against the monetary cycles.  As the world’s fiat currencies continue to be debased through inflation, regulation, and irresponsible spending, precious metals investing is on the rise.  But do you physically own your gold?  Join Jason and James as they revisit the history of market cycles, talk about where the future of precious metals is heading, and discuss why people must take physical ownership of gold and silver .  Learn more at:  http://jasonhartman.com/radioshows/.

Surely, many of you have seen and heard the ads, “We Buy Gold.”  What do these gold buyers know that the public doesn’t?  James explains why you should NOT sell your gold or gold jewelry now. After his first exposure to Austrian Economics at the Loyola University New Orleans with his favorite business professor, Dr. Walter Block, James Anderson received his BA in Finance in 2002. He spent two years traveling and working throughout Latin America where he witnessed first-hand the dramatic effects of the 2001-2002 Argentine currency collapse. In 2007, James became heavily involved with Dr. Ron Paul's 2008 presidential run where he further awakened to our monetary history and the fractional reserve banking. James has since been very interested in free market economics, tangible assets, and sound money investing, seeing his work as a humanitarian effort to educate mankind on the importance of gaining financial independence and freedom.
