-Moving towards a user based society; only paying taxes on the things you use.
-Why ending the Fed is not a realistic idea
-Andrew is a bit disappointed by Trump’s cabinet picks; he’s trying to bring everyone in to the circle; he’s following Kennedy’s logic; Andrew will not start criticizing just yet and wants to give them a chance. Trump did say he would unify and understands some of the picks as to be inclusive.
-If Trump goes along to get along, nothing will happen.
-Burning the flag and free speech
-The Washington Post list of fake news
-Question from a listener: It was interesting hearing Andy’s comments on South Korea’s economic development last week. Plenty of negative press on Trump over here in Korea, of course. However, if Trump does make South Korea less dependent on the USA for it’s economic well-being might that actually be a good thing for both parties in the long term?
Doesn’t being dependent on foreign countries create certain weakness – that’s the globalist plan isn’t it? – co-dependence. In my mind Korea has over-extended itself for the sake of rapid development. e.g. about 70% of their food is imported.
What does Andy think is a safe middle-ground between a nation’s self-reliance and it’s international co-operation?
-Question from a listener: Does Andrew recommend participating in a 401 k if the employer is matching 3%?
-Trader Scott says about Trump, “He is a Ronald Reagan clone – he will balloon the deficit and the debt also. But the massive difference this time is Pres. Reagan had the great fortune to be inaugurated when there were very favorable secular turning points – bonds were ending a 35 year bear market, but now we are starting a 35 year bond bear market. In 1981, we were ending a disastrous inflation situation, now we are starting a disastrous inflation situation. Check out more from Trader Scott.
-Is Common Core a good idea? Andrew talks about the American education system.
-Social Security: How long does Andrew think it’ll be around?
-Question from a listener: I understand that as interest rates rise then bond values fall. How much of the bond market is actively traded? Aren’t some folks, organizations, and institutions just going to keep their bonds with their set return and be unaffected by a drop in price. Or are most of the bonds actively traded and a “move to the exits” is in the cards?
-Andrew disagrees with Trader Scott on rising interest rates being the cause of inflation.
-How would Andrew rate the management of the US monetary system from 1972 till now?
-Question from a listener: I recently heard a interview with Brix Wier. Brix says there’s a huge gold source (mine) in the Grand Canyon. He says the PTB will let the USA go bankrupt and then bring in this hidden gold and restart the economy with gold backed currency. Do you think there’s any truth to this?
-Gold lasts forever, which is one of the things that makes it so special.
