May 23rd Show – Is there an “Area 51” of economic and monetary policy research?

I have uploaded a new show podcast for May 23, 2018. Click here to go to the show archives page to listen or you can listen on the link below.

-There are currently no viable solutions to the monetary system problems being discussed. I find it curious that there is a lock-down with respect to any practical and public discussion
-Cryptos and blockchain still need at least 10-15 years of technological advancement to make them viable
-The euro, yuan, and yen offer no alternative to the dollar
-The SDR is almost 50 years old and provides no practical solution
-Gold backing to currencies would collapse the fiat system overnight as monetary growth would grind to a halt. Not one nation wants to see gold backing
-The collective oligarchy must be developing a new system behind closed doors. They are long-term planners and it is impossible that they are not developing one right now. They must have built an “Area 51” of economic research to develop new monetary system theories and technologies that can be employed on a mass, global scale.
-Never underestimate the elites’ ability to keep their system going for longer than we have patience for. The patriots were crying collapse 25 years ago. William Cooper was warning his listeners in the early ’90s of impending calamity.
-The boom/bust cycles provided by the current monetary system will continue to provide the wealth extraction necessary for the elites to consolidate the world’s wealth.
-All this collapse talk creates the learned helplessness that makes the transition easier when the time comes. We need to be patient and learn to work with this broken system for now.
