Doug Casey and Michael Oliver return as guests to the radio program.
The brilliant, eccentric and highly successful investor Casey understands the destructive force of governments. This enables him to turn negative into positive returns and his luxury development at Cafayate, Argentina offers a potential safe haven from physical and financial harm from a world of potential chaos. Doug's understanding of the world as it really exists as opposed to a picture-painted by American propaganda has led him to say crazy things like when he suggested the attempt to buy gold when the system breaks down will be like trying to force Niagara Falls through a garden hose.
But now, a growing number of household-name hedge fund managers are in agreement with Doug's assessment regarding gold. Doug will opine on the future of our world and give some opinions on prospects of a Donald Trump presidency. Michael Oliver will provide his usual important insights into precious metals, commodities, stocks and bonds.

Michael Oliver entered the financial services industry in 1975 on the Futures side, joining E.F. Hutton's International Commodity Division, NYC. He studied under David Johnson, head of Hutton's Commodity Division and Chairman of the COMEX.
In the 1980s, Oliver began to develop his own momentum-based method of technical analysis. In 1987, Oliver, along with his futures client accounts (Oliver had trading POA) technically anticipated and captured the Crash. Oliver began to realize that his emergent momentum-structural-based tools should be further developed into a full analytic methodology.
In 1992, he was asked by the Financial VP and head of Wachovia Bank's Trust Department to provide soft dollar research to Wachovia. Within a year, Oliver shifted from brokerage to full-time technical research. MSA has provided its proprietary technical research services to financial and asset management clients continually since 1992. Oliver is the author of The New Libertarianism: Anarcho-Capitalism.
