2) Will the powerful politicians and bureaucrats running the EU allow Brexit to occur?

Look inside the ECB's asset buying (manipulation) program (of propaganda)

3) Do you think the economic and political elites were meeting at the recent Bilderberg meeting to discuss how to implement fully digital currencies and a cashless society on a global scale?

4) Do you think the US wants a new president in place in Brazil to allow US oil companies to buy up assets from PetroBras as Petrobras faces financial problems from low oil prices and too much debt? Are the Chinese also planning how to get involved in this with strategic investments into mining and oil in Brazil?

5) China is now issuing RMB bonds from it's BRICs bank and Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank. In your opinion what does this mean for the global financial system and the Petro Dollar?

6) Bloomberg recently ran an article saying that the Chinese want to have more control over how all commodities are priced since China is the largest buyer of many commodities. Do you think China is doing a step by step process to castrate the LBMA and the COMEX?

Dave talks about the global economy and how different central banks are trying to keep the party going and fueling asset bubbles, etc.

Dave thinks if the stock market crashes before the November 2016 election that it guarantees a win for Donald Trump in the election.

Next, Jason asks Dave about legendary investor Sir John Templeton since Jason and Dave have both studied the investments and career of John Templeton. Jason asks Dave what Templeton would have been buying the last year or so and what Templeton would have been shorting using his investing methodology if Templeton were still alive? Dave says Templeton made a fortune investing in copper and base metal miners when they were very cheap in the mid-late 1990s and Templeton probably would have been buying gold stocks and other resource stocks in the last year because many were at the point of maximum pessimism.

Jason and Dave discuss the gold mining industry and why gold has had a rally since December.

Dave thinks ultimately all global central bankers are trapped and there will be a worse stagflation coming. He also thinks central banks will unintentionally create a new commodities bubble as central banks attempt to devalue their fiat currencies.
