Alasdair Macleod, Dr. Quinton Hennigh and Chen Lin return as guests on the program.

Including bonds and other financial issues emanating from the U.S. Government, the individual states, the private sector and the broad money supply, dollar debt totals roughly $100 trillion, to which we can add shadow banking liabilities realistically estimated at a further $30 trillion. This gives us an idea of the scale of the threat to asset values and banking posed by higher interest rates, which are now all but certain. The prospect of contracting financial asset values is potentially far worse than in any post-war financial crisis, because the valuation base for them starts at zero and even negative interest rates in the case of Europe and Japan. Many argue that if the existing fiat monetary system self destructs, the dollar will be the last currency standing.

But Alasdair explains why the dollar is likely to be the first to fold taking down the entire dollar-centric system with it. Of course, in trying to save the dollar, the Fed will accelerate the supply of dollars exponentially leading to massively higher prices and a global monetary reset. Quinton updates us on progress being made on Eloro’s Iska Iska massive silver and tin-rich global project in Bolivia and Chen provides his latest thoughts on investments he believes are most ripe for earning profits.

Why the Dollar’s Debt Trap is InflationaryChen Lin had been a doctoral candidate in aeronautical engineering at Princeton. However, Chen found his investment strategies were so profitable that he put his Ph.D. on the back burner to devote full time to private investing and writing a newsletter titled “What is Chen Buying? What is Chen Selling?”  Chen’s track record has been phenomenal!  In one account we tracked, in which he used no leverage, he was able to grow $5,411 starting in 2002 to over $2.2 million by the end of 2012.  You can visit his website at http://chenpicks.com/
