Alasdair Macleod: Any Meaningful Interest Rate Increase Could Collapse Global Financial System

Jason Burack of Wall St for Main St interviewed returning guest, head of research at Gold Money, Alasdair Macleod. Alasdair has over 20 years experience working in the financial industry.

Alasdair's articles are available here:

Jason and Alasdair discuss how central banks have kept loading on debt and other assets onto their balance sheets and how much worse the global debt problem is since 2008. Alasdair says a tiny increase in interest rates could collapse the global financial system because of how leveraged it has become. Nothing was learned from the 2008 crisis.

Jason also asks Alasdair about the gold market and about how Deutsche Bank is only going to pay a $38 million fine for manipulating the London Silver fix in exchange for providing more evidence against its co-conspirators.

To wrap up the interview, Jason and Alasdair discuss the demand side for physical gold.

Jason then asks Mike about if the Federal Reserve will continue to lobby for permission from Congress to start buying stocks. Mike says there will be basically nothing to stop them from doing so in the future and Mike points to Ben Bernanke's 2002 Helicopter Money speech.

Jason and Mike discuss what deflation would mean for asset prices and the global economy and how if oil prices went below $29/barrel to say $10/barrel it would potentially cause war or other major geopolitical problems as well as bankrupting every single oil producer.

To wrap up the interview, Jason asks Mike a handful (thanks to the dozens of listeners who submitted questions!) of listener questions.

Listener Questions Answered During the Interview:
1) From Eric- Should we be optimistic that gold/silver price manipulation will end soon?
2) Multiple Listeners Asked Mike- Do you own any gold & silver mining shares?
