Jason Hartman talks with Dan Ferris, the editor of Extreme Value and host of the Stansberry Investor Hour Podcast. Dan and Jason speak on subjects ranging from the broad economy to some of the conspiracy theories that might be ignored a little too much. Understanding the government’s role in the shifting economy and what the Fed is doing with each dollar can help one understand whether or not we are in a bubble. As well, how long can the stimulus work before it has no effect?
Land, gold, and art OR stocks, bonds, and cash? “You need to learn to preserve wealth outside the financial system,” Ferris said. Ferris and Hartman go in-depth discussing diversification and its importance versus playing it safe with multi-dimensional assets. Inflation, don’t predict it, prepare for it.

Gold is the only monetary asset in the world that is not somebody else’s liability. Jason Hartman talks with Charles Goyette going beyond every conversation about gold in the economy right now. Gold’s value continues to rise, and not just compared to the dollar. Goyette says that China, along with the rest of the world, is de-dollarizing. Goyette gives an insightful, thought-provoking history and prediction of currencies in all forms across the globe.

Jason Hartman invites you all to put on your tinfoil hats in preparation for this interview with George Gammon exploring some topics often considered economic conspiracy theories. George, a regular visitor on our show, brings you some unsettling details outlining the great reset and the repo market. How are communism and capitalism connected? How far will artificial intelligence infiltrate into our every day lives?

Douglas Vermeeren joins the show today to discuss the power of thought shared in the film How Thoughts Become Things. Douglass and Jason speak on the profound ideas of building a life with thoughts, conversation, and your surroundings. From wealth to health, many ideas are influenced by the thoughts that you give them.
[1:00] We become what we think about.
[4:05] Our thoughts are highjacked by the stimulus around us, all the time.
[5:45] We become like the five people we spend the most time with.
[10:00] Your network becomes your safety net, then becomes your net worth.
