Praise:

“Your questions were excellent questions. I enjoyed this very much.”

--Vernon Smith, Nobel Prize in Economics

“You’ve surrounded yourself with one of the most advanced group of mentors possible…The people on your podcasts, and people in your life, all are people with strong opinions, all people that make you think and make you grow. You just have some kind of an affinity for people like that, and that’s part of what makes you good at what you do.”

--Ed Seykota

“Michael Covel’s podcast has had over [9.5] million listeners and he’s completed [900+] episodes. He’s probably the most established podcaster on this list—and it shows. Mr. Covel’s podcast is great for those looking for alternative views on the market, those who are tired of hearing the same old stories told on CBNC and other traditional outlets. This is highly recommended if you are looking to expand your mind in investing. Mr. Covel has had some incredible guests, to include multiple Nobel Prize winners and world-famous investors. One of my favorite episodes was when Mr. Covel interviewed Annie Duke, a former professional poker player who has some incredible insights on decision making. Mr. Covel always has me thinking and Annie Duke only amplified my brain-wave activity.”

“If you had foreseen the financial confusion of the Carter years, or the exploding debt in the Bush years, or the Federal Reserve’s “money printing” spree during the Obama presidency, you might have profited richly from the resulting bull markets in gold and silver. But today’s governmental recklessness dwarfs each of those episodes. Add other accelerants to the dollar and debt crises—including currency and trade wars, an unaffordable military empire, and a juggernaut of domestic state socialism—now converging to fuel an era of monetary destruction that will drive gold prices to unimaginable heights.”

That is where my guest today stands.

Is he right? Time will tell.

Does he lay a societal foundation hard to ignore?

You bet.

If we had more conversations like this across America we would be in a much better place.
