We have a lot to talk about.
Events in the financial and precious metals markets are a clear indication of the tremendous change underway. I am back in Tennessee and headed east on Thursday to join Franklin Sanders for dinner and the Precious Metals Markets Report.
I will start with Money & Markets. Franklin and I will focus on questions on precious metals. Post your questions in the comments section for this blog post.
Franklin will update us on precious metals markets and the events of the last month. Then we are going to review the precious metals markets over the last decade and major price swings along the way, including in 2006 and 2008. Check out the charts posted on the private blog on gold and silver’s volatility since 2003.
We will revisit our price expectations for 2011 and address the conundrum facing investors looking to preserve wealth today: managing volatility vs. enduring debasement.
Our movie this week is Blue Gold – World Water Wars. Access to and control of water is behind numerous wars and investment shifts we are watching. A proposed sale of the water company in Missoula, Montana to the Carlyle Group is a reminder of the questions that privatization pose.
If you have not watched last week’s movie Longitude, I strongly recommend it to you. The feedback has been quite strong and it is available online here. It describes the age-old tug of war between privilege and innovation which is depressing our economy today.
Talk to you Thursday!
Listen live on Thursday evening by phone, Skype or online, or listen at your convenience by downloading the MP3 after it is posted on Friday.
