Chris Martenson: Confidence in Many Complex Systems Collapsing

Jason Burack of Wall St for Main St interviewed returning guest, former corporate executive and phD scientist, Dr. Chris Martenson

Chris co-created The Crash Course and Peak Prosperity website with Adam Taggart and they also co-authored their new book, Prosper!: How to Prepare for the Future and Create a World Worth Inheriting in November 2015

Since he quit his corporate job over a decade ago, Chris has since become an expert on many topics.

During this 40+ minute interview, Jason and Chris have a wide ranging discussion on a number of topics including:

1) Why he thinks gold and gold stocks have rallied so strongly since December 2015?

2) Are mainstream money managers losing all remaining confidence in the Federal Reserve and other central banks?

3) Will the stock market crash if obvious daily stock market manipulations are occurring?

4) Why haven't more shale oil companies gone bankrupt when the oil price went below $40/barrel WTI?

5) Will new technology from Silicon Valley be able to drastically reduce the usage of oil around the globe in only a decade?

6) Why isn't there more clean water available?

7) Many experts cite the Simon–Ehrlich wager from 1980 to 1990 as justifying that over the long term all commodity prices have to fall. But, despite what economic textbooks say should be happening, things have drastically changed since China joined the WTO and commodity prices are nearly all in long term uptrends and the cost of production for many commodities rises 10% or more yearly. What type of real world limits are there preventing commodity prices from declining over the long term that maybe was not seen or not available when this bet was made?

Catherine Austin Fitts: Why Privacy is Over & Taxes Set to Increase

Jason Burack of Wall St for Main St interviewed first time guest, former Wall Street investment banker, macroeconomic expert and publisher of The Solari Report, Catherine Austin Fitts.

Catherine's bio can be found here:

During this 35+ minute interview, Jason starts off by asking Catherine how she thinks China will deal with the debt problems the country has with its state owned banks and municipalities?

Catherine thinks China will try to address its debt problems by a combination of growing its way out of its problems and also by printing a lot of RMB and then exporting them outside the country like how the US has done for decades with exporting massive amounts of Dollars.

Jason and Catherine discuss China copying the US in a number of ways including militarily.

Next, Jason asks Catherine about global financial repression from all the world's major economies and how economies like Japan, US, UK, EU and China are attempting to manipulate interest rates lower while also manipulating their foreign exchange rates.

Jason also asks where negative interest rate policy (NIRP), a cashless society and the US' war on cash fit into this?

Catherine talks about how governments are working together more to coordinate policy decisions. It sounds like the US is willing to relinquish some control in exchange for a one world government type setup.

Jason then asks Catherine about her January 2016 issue of The Solar Report where she talks about investing in space industry companies and the plans the central planners have for colonizing Mars and space travel.

Catherine thinks this is one of the primary reasons for setting up one world government.

Next, Jason asks Catherine if it will be a minor miracle if the major US stock market indexes don't crash before the November 2016 elections? Catherine talks about how every market is manipulated now.

Jason then asks Catherine about why Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders are becoming so popular on Main St, USA?

Catherine says Americans realized they are being destroy with inflation (currency debasement), taxes and their privacy, rights and civil liberties are being stolen.

Jason also asks Catherine where value in markets is for investors right now. Catherine says hard assets like real estate and precious metals will offer people the best inflation protection. She also says stocks may do well.

To wrap up the interview, Jason asks Cathering if the emergency Federal Reserve meeting with President Obama was due to an imminent bank failure and also possible positive solutions for people on Main St to deal with the wave of increasing inflation, taxes and loss of privacy that things like NIRP and a cashless society are predicting are coming and probably on going to get worse.

Next, Jason asks Jim about the state of the global economy. Jim talks about how the global economy is slowing down and he expects the US to enter into a recession soon with official US government economic statistics.

Jason then asks Jim what, in his opinion, the US shale oil boom has done to peak oil? (since Jim has read hundreds of books about the oil market and interviewed many dozens of experts).

Jason and Jim discuss the global economy further including the European banking crisis, whether China will need to bailout their state owned banks or state municipalities and whether the stock market will crash?

Jim thinks financial repression and NIRP is forcing people looking for income into stocks and that's preventing stocks from crashing. Jim Doesn't expect the stock market to crash in the next 6-12 months unless something major happens.

Jason and Jim also discuss how government is making many problems worse in society and the economy, especially his home state of California.

Jason then asks Jay about a stock market crash and Jay talks about how the Federal Reserve and the Plunge Protection Team have prevented the stock market from crashing for years.

Jay also gives one or two of his favorite junior gold stock picks!
