Doug Casey is a (successful) speculator, a libertarian philosopher, and a best-selling author. He has a reputation for his sometimes controversial insights into politics, economics, and investments. His speculation is often called “rational speculation”, and he’s one of the authorities on the matter, and is highly regarded in the high-potential natural resource sector.
Doug’s new book, Speculator, is a venture into fiction, a departure for him. Jason Hartman and Doug discuss the new book, how to be an international man today, and real estate all over the world.
