For this episode, I spoke with Doug Casey, Founder of Casey Research. Doug is a best-selling author, world-renowned speculator and libertarian philosopher with more than 40 years' experience investing in the natural resource sector. His first book, “Crisis Investing,” where he discusses how to profit from periods of economic turmoil, spent multiple weeks as #1 on the New York Times bestseller list and became the best-selling financial book of 1980.
Since then, Doug has written four books, and has appeared on hundreds of radio and TV shows sharing his insights into politics, economics and investment markets. He will be a speaker at the upcoming Sprott Natural Resource Symposium in Vancouver, British Columbia, July 17-20 (you can purchase your ticket here). I was presented with the opportunity to interview Doug Casey, and I couldn’t pass it up. As a listener to Planet MicroCap, just remember, I enjoy learning about all different investing approaches and philosophies because, at the end of the day, there is no ONE way to make money in the market.
Today, will you be hearing about a new approach to value or growth investing? No. However, the natural resource sector makes up a big component of what we consider MicroCap stocks, and Doug is someone that’s been investing in this space for quite a long time. With that said, the goal for this episode is to share his insights on what has worked for him when investing in this highly speculative market.
