Today’s Flash Back Friday comes from Episode 24 from March 2010.
Jason interviews writer and talk show host Charles Goyette. He is a libertarian commentator, who is noted for his outspoken anti-war views, his opposition to the war in Iraq and his economic commentary. He is the author of the book The Dollar Meltdown: Surviving the Impending Currency Crisis with Gold, Oil, and Other Unconventional Investments, which Congressman Ron Paul calls “a must read,” and investor Peter Schiff describes as “…a sensible plan to protect your wealth.”
Charles and Jason describe the next and most difficult phase of America’s financial turmoil – the coming currency crisis. A currency crisis is not a pleasant event for anyone, but I have outlined simple steps people can take to protect themselves and their families.” You’ll learn about the governmental errors that led to the current economic crisis and the bumpy road ahead. The signs are clear: Federal debt is compounding while growth has stalled, and America’s foreign creditors are questioning the dollar’s reserve currency status. Meanwhile, the “hidden” federal debt, much larger than the official debt, makes things even worse.
In clear detail we’ll discuss alternative investments — from gold and silver to oil and agriculture and income property — that will remain strong in the face of mounting inflation. Goyette will join Congressman Paul, author Thomas Woods, and others, speaking at the 2009 Freedom Summit in Phoenix, Arizona. The Freedom Summit conferences offer a stimulating periodic update on the current status of freedom in our world by a highly distinguished assortment of the leading figures in the freedom movement. “People need not get left holding the bag after decades of government irresponsibility, said Goyette. “But they must understand where we are, how we got here, and what happens next. America’s debt is a powder keg ready to blow. The fuse was lit by the mad rush of bailouts and stimulus spending.”
