Bill Holter: Complete Collapse & Meltdown – The Dollar Will be Destroyed
Tom welcomes back Precious Metals Broker Bill Holter to discuss the current state of the US economy, the precious metals sector, and the ongoing sovereign debt crisis. He points out how, as a result of higher rates, the available collateral is shrinking - rates are now back to 2001-2002 levels and an affordability crisis is rapidly unfolding in real estate, a large part of the economy. Although these consequences are not yet being priced into the stock market, the real economy will suffer. He then discusses the risk of default in the futures market for gold and silver, and doubts the validity of the US' gold reserves; however, he does believe there is gold that could be mined in the US. Lastly, he explains why the government and the Fed will probably choose to take the easy way out by printing more money to cover obligations - this will ultimately destroy confidence and the dollar.
