Rank #1: Vancouver: The World's Mining Hub

Podcast cover
Read more
Everybody knows that mining is a major economic force in Canada. However, the magnitude of Vancouver's dominance on the world stage is less known. In fact, the city is the home to over 800 mining and junior prospecting companies, while the next best foreign city—Perth, Australia—has not even one third that many.

Karleigh Middlemiss, a human-resources specialist with IDM Mining, explains why Vancouver is head and shoulders above any other city in the world for mining. She also offers tips for those interested in entering the field.

Rank #4: Alternative Investments: For Beta, Not Alpha

Podcast cover
Read more
Plenty of misunderstanding remains regarding what alternative-asset classes are and how investors should incorporate them into their portfolios.

Bill Kelly, CEO of the Chartered Alternative Investment Analyst Association (CAIA), warns that those who see private equity, hedge funds, or precious metals as absolute investment vehicles are in for a disappointment.

Rather than achieving alpha, Kelly argues that alternative investments help diversify risks and limit exposure to market turns.
I am just pondering punchy words for the headline.

Despite the righteous demands of environmentalists and politicians, fossil fuels are not going away anytime soon.

Peter Hartley, a professor and scholar of energy economics for the Baker Institute at Rice University, argues natural gas will play an essential role in the transition to clean electricity.

He explains how the United States went from being the world's largest importer of gas to one of the major exporters thanks to innovation, infrastructure, and property rights.

Rank #9: Robert Kiyosaki: Gold and Silver Are God's Money

Podcast cover

The banking and financial elite may disparage precious metals as a relic of the past, but the joke is on them. Robert Kiyosaki, author of the best-selling personal finance book of all time, retorts that he became rich by saving silver and gold—not by doing what was politically correct.

Gold has existed for centuries and will continue to be sound money years after the US dollar has disappeared.

Rank #10: Russia's Plan for a New World Currency

Podcast cover
Read more
Russia and China have been accumulating gold for years, but observers are at a loss to explain why.

Byron King, a geologist with Rickards' Gold Speculator, argues they are planning for a new monetary system. The United States has weaponized the dollar to enact sanctions and police world trade, so naturally those superpowers want an alternative, he explains.

In his view, the days of the dollar as the world currency are numbered, and gold offers the best hedge against the looming shift.

Rank #12: See Beyond the Obvious with Economics

Podcast cover
Read more
The world is full of people behaving in ways that don't make sense at first glance. Economics is a tool to help you understand seemingly inexplicable actions.

Steven Landsburg, a University of Rochester economics professor, has written several books that introduce the economic way of thinking to a lay audience. The rationale, he writes, can be summed up best in four words: "People respond to incentives."

Understanding the power of incentives gives one a leg up as a businessman and investor, but also as a citizen trying to penetrate a world awash with confusion.

Rank #13: Dennis Gartman: Bitcoin Is a Substitute for Nothing

Podcast cover
Read more
Amid the cryptocurrency euphoria, few have passed on the opportunity to invest in bitcoin or altcoins. Meet Dennis Gartman, who argues that they have no intrinsic value and only serve for speculation.

A world-renowned financier and commodities expert, he has published the Gartman Letter since 1987, which goes out daily to leading banks, hedge funds, and mutual funds.

Despite his bitcoin skepticism, he touts its underlying technology, the blockchain, as revolutionary. He argues that decentralized ledgers will disrupt mortgage registries, container shipping, and much more.

Lobo Tiggre, CEO of Louis James LLC and editor of the Independent Speculator, notes the buzz on mainstream media is drawing new funding to the sector.

He argues that, while one should always focus on the fundamentals and plan into the future, there are short-term opportunities in silver and uranium stocks.

Rank #15: How to Find Mining Tenbaggers

Podcast cover
Read more
Mining exploration in general is a money-losing enterprise: only one in 1,000 projects succeeds.

However, according to economic geologist Brent Cook, you just need a couple of big hits to make up for it. He combines 30 years of experience in geology, exploration, and consulting as the co-editor of Exploration Insights.

Cook argues that you can greatly improve the odds with a bit of due diligence and basic knowledge of geology to weed out projects with fatal flaws.

Rank #16: China Prepares for Dollar Collapse, Hoards Gold

Podcast cover
Read more
China's bottomless appetite for gold and other hard assets is at the back of every financial analyst's mind.

For David Brady, CEO and co-founder of Global Pro Traders, there is no doubt that China and Russia believe a US dollar plunge is coming. He is a CFA charterholder with degrees in business and finance from Dublin City University.

He argues that the Chinese are hoarding more gold than they let on in preparation for a coming global financial reset. When central banks revert back to another round of interest-rate cuts and quantitative easing, he contends, then everything but the dollar will take off.

Rank #17: Is the World Getting Freer?

Podcast cover
Read more
Every year, the Fraser Institute’s Economic Freedom of the World index ranks countries' openness to markets. But how can one measure something so seemingly abstract as freedom or liberalization?

We discuss this and other topics with the man behind the study for the past 30 years, Robert Lawson of the O'Neil Center for Global Markets and Freedom at Southern Methodist University.

He argues that the scientific method can work in the social sciences as well, and that the ideology of a country’s ruling party is not the best indicator of its economic freedom.

Rank #19: The State of Academic Inquiry in Canada

Podcast cover
Read more
Accounts of censorship at universities have made major headlines in Canada and the United States, but is the outrage warranted?

Michael Kennedy, co-author of the Campus Freedom Index, an annual measure of the state of free speech at Canadian public universities, argues there is indeed a pattern of censorship.

He asserts almost half of these universities go beyond their legal authority to censor speech, student groups, and controversial speakers.

Nevertheless, he believes the public and many stakeholders are starting to fight back and hold university officials accountable—a symbol of broader respect for public debate in Canada.

Rank #20: How the Fed's Low Rates Became an Addiction

Podcast cover
Read more
A key tenet of central banking around the world is the dogma that deflation impedes economic growth and must be avoided at all costs.

Peter Boockvar, chief investment officer with Bleakly Advisory Group and editor of the Boock Report, is a prominent dissenter. He points out inflation targets make no economic sense until you consider who benefits from them.

Wall Street has captured the Federal Reserve, he argues, which cannot abandon loose monetary policy for fear of upsetting the status quo. However, perpetual low rates are no longer incentivizing new economic behavior, and a painful but necessary market correction will come.
