Welcome to Dystopia 17-Smaulgld on Shifty PM Data: Louis Dissects CPM Group, Gold/Silver

Jason Burack of Wall St for Main St and managing editor of The News Doctors http://thenewsdoctors.com/ and independent financial journalist, Eric Dubin welcome special guest Louis Cammarosano of Smaulgld https://smaulgld.com/ to Episode #17 of their Welcome to Dystopia podcast. Louis a a precious metal and real estate expert who also has been a teacher, worked on Wall St, worked in Silicon Valley and has been a lawyer for Wall St. During this hour+ episode, Jason asks Louis about the precious metals market. Louis thinks CPM Group and the Silver Institute use incorrect data. He says CPM doesn't count investment demand in their demand calculations and that the Silver Institute doesn't properly account for silver ETF holdings. Louis thinks the physical silver market has been in a major deficit for years. Eric then asks what will cause the silver price to rise? Louis says investment demand and/ot industrial demand for physical metal will force paper prices higher (if the manipulators allow it). Eric follows up about the manipulation of gold and silver and Louis says it's getting worse. Jason asks Louis if miners going bankrupt will force the manipulators to retreat and the paper prices to go higher? Jason asks Louis about the discrepancy between his Mexican silver supply numbers and the Mexican silver supply numbers Steve St Angelo of SRS Rocco report releases. Louis says Mexican silver miners have to increase silver production to pay bills even with low silver prices. He says this will continue until prices rise or miners go bankrupt because no capital is available to them anymore. Eric, Jason and Louis discuss the gold and silver miners and what will happen to them next?Jason says the perfect storm for miners is if physical demand for metal grows, and there's also supply problems. Jason then asks Louis about the rally in oil, copper, base metals, etc. Louis thinks it's not based on fundamentals and almost all short covering. Jason then asks Louis what he thinks the world will look like in 10 years? Louis thinks governments will attempt to nationalize all central banks and even big banks and government will attempt to control all credit issues within its borders. It's a chilling dystopian/authoritative future and we hope he is wrong about it! Besides accumulating physical precious metals, Louis says investors should be on the lookout for bargain dividend stocks of companies that can generate free cash flow and pay a dividend without using debt to pay dividends.

Louis Cammarosano (Smaulgld): Gold & Silver Mining Shares Mania is Coming

Jason Burack of Wall St for Main St interviewed returning guest, gold and silver expert, former Wall St lawyer and former Silicon Valley executive, Louis Cammarosano of Smaulgld https://smaulgld.com/ Louis' bio can be found here: https://smaulgld.com/about During this 40+ minute interview, Jason starts off by asking Louis about his views on why the Federal Reserve monitors the Dollar Index so closely? Louis talks about how the Federal Reserve has been able to keep the Dollar Index strong despite doing QE programs with a lot of careful comments put out in public. Louis thinks the Federal Reserve will only announce its next QE programs if the Dollar Index isn't falling. Jason and Louis then discuss the global economy and the liquidity injections from a number of central banks. Next, Jason asks Louis why he thinks there was a paper bear market in gold and silver from 2011 until the end of 2015? Louis talks about how the East bought massive amounts of physical gold while the paper price continued to fall. Jason asks Louis about negative interest rates playing a major part in the rally for gold and silver and mining shares? Louis thinks there will be a long mania in gold and silver mining shares going forward. Jason asks if the miners problems with raising capital and potentially shutting down mines ended the bear market in 2015? Louis doesn't think we are at gold or silver prices where a low of new gold and silver mines will be built and he thinks miners are in a real sweet spot as far as their margins go unless oil prices rise substantially, the miners can't control costs or bring on higher cost production and let their margins slip away or governments increase taxes on miner. Jason and Louis think miners could have excellent margins for a number of years now unless those things happen. To wrap up the interview, Jason asks Louis about Alan Greenspan's positive comments on gold and his warnings about how much inflation is already in asset markets and the US' economy. Jason and Louis also discuss what can end a gold and silver bull market?

Jason and Eric name a bunch of current events and examples from academic Keynesian economists and members of the Federal Reserve desperate to tinker with the economy further for dire consequences for people on Main St. ​The long-heralded The Curse of Cash by prominent Harvard professor and former IMF chief economist Ken Rogoff is now in bookstores. This proto-fascist screed argues for the elimination of all $100, $20, and even $10 bills so that criminals will have a more difficult time doing business and all ordinary citizens would eventually have to use electronic cards to may all payments, transfers, etc. and so that central banks will be able more effectively to carry on their various schemes of ZIRP, NIRP, etc. http://www.ronpaullibertyreport.com/archives...
