Unfortunately, they don't understand all of the dynamics and they are tripping down a primrose path to ruin. It's not all about tax cuts. In this episode of the Friday Gold Wrap podcast, host Mike Maharrey offers a simple seven-point breakdown of what's actually going on. He also covers the latest in gold demand news and tells you about another country that is buying gold.

In this episode of the Friday Gold Wrap, host Mike Maharrey talks about the impact QE4 is having on the markets and some delicious irony courtesy of a paper published by the central bank that admits its own policy might just be a problem.

Peter Schiff gets a lot of scoffers. "You've been saying the same thing for years and nothing has happened." It's easy to throw rocks from the peanut gallery.

In this episode of the Friday Gold Wrap, Mike Maharrey talks about the underlying economics behind what's going on in the economy and the markets. He also talks about how the Powell Put impacted the markets this week and how the Fed might proceed in the future.

The Federal Reserve FOMC met this week. When it was all said and done, the Fed did nothing. We're stuck in neutral. As expected, there was no rate hike.

So, why in the world did markets react like the Fed just jacked up interest rates? On this episode of the Friday Gold Wrap, host Mike Maharrey talks about it. He also gives an overview of the most recent World Gold Council demand report.

Mike, Paul and Suzanne talk about the recent layoffs announced by GM.

He also discusses President Trump’s strategic error in taking credit for the “booming economy.”

Mke, Paul and Suzanne also touch on the issue of rights. Mike emphasizes that despite the name, the Bill of Rights does not actually give anybody any rights. It restricts government from infringing on rights we already have.

Rank #15: BONUS: Free Money for Everyone! It's Your Dime Interview with Antony Sammeroff

Podcast cover
Read more
We’ve seen growing support for a universal basic income or UBI. In a nutshell, the government would pay every citizen a set amount of money without any means testing or work requirement. Democratic Party presidential candidate Andrew Yang has made UBI a central issue in his campaign. Under his plan, every American over the age of 18 would get $1,000 per month, guaranteed. This sounds great, doesn’t it? Who doesn’t want free money? But the plan raises a few questions — like how would the government pay for it?

In this episode of It’s Your Dime, host Mike Maharrey talks with Antony Sammeroff, author of the book “Universal Basic Income: For and Against.” They discuss the pros and cons of UBI and delve into some of the economic ramifications.

Antony is the author of several books and the host of the Scottish Liberty Podcast.

TOPICS DISCUSSED

- What UBI is UBI and how would it work?
- Why it’s being proposed?
- The economic ramifications of a UBI
- The possible unintended consequences of implementing UBI
- Will technology really displace workers?
- The case against UBI
