The BRICS countries have convened a summit set to begin next month on August 22, at which it’s anticipated that they will announce a new gold-backed trade settlement currency. A very popular guest, Mr. Alasdair Macleod, joins your host Dennis Tubbergen on Retirement Lifestyle Advocates radio this week to explain just what a new gold-backed trade settlement currency might mean for the price of gold and, more importantly, how it might work to undermine the US dollar, the availability of credit, and the whole of western economies.
Alasdair Macleod is the head of research at Gold Money Holding, a well-respected author, and a noted expert in world economics. Mr. Macleod has been a celebrated stockbroker and Member of the London Stock Exchange for over four decades. His experience encompasses equity and bond markets, fund management, corporate finance, and investment strategy.
We’ve got very elevated bullish sentiment in the markets at the moment. According to the Association of Individual Investors, bullish sentiment is the highest it’s been since the top roughly 27 months ago, and so people think that the bull market is back. Our guest this week on Retirement Lifestyle Advocates radio, Mr. Murray Gunn, says that’s another aspect of corrective waves in the first part of an ongoing bear market. He discusses with your host, Dennis Tubbergen, that people think that the bull market is back because they don’t want to think about a bear market. The point of realization comes in the third wave down; that’s when we can see quite a dramatic turndown in the stock markets.
Murray Gunn is Head of Global Research at Elliott Wave International. He worked as a fund manager in global bonds, currencies, and stocks, including long posts at Standard Life Investments and the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority. He then joined HSBC Bank as Head of Technical Analysis.

The Constitution provides for three branches of government, but now we’ve got this fourth branch which contains a permanent class of bureaucrats that nobody elected. It is a big threat to our freedom. The week on Retirement Lifestyle Advocates radio, your host Dennis Tubbergen talks with Jeffrey Tucker about his recent article titled “Twenty Grim Realities Unearthed by Lockdowns.” Tucker explains that these government agencies have powers to govern that now are difficult for any Administration, Congress, or Court to control.
Jeffrey A. Tucker is the Founder and President of the Brownstone Institute and the author of many thousands of articles in the scholarly and popular press and ten books in 5 languages, most recently publisher of Blindsight in 2020. He is also the editor of The Best of Mises. He speaks widely on topics of economics, technology, social philosophy, and culture.
The situation that happened in the crash of 1929 was because nine out of 10 cycles stopped together, and you have the same situation occurring again in 2026, 2027. So that is really going to be a terrible situation. Our guest on this week’s episode of Retirement Lifestyle Advocates radio is cycles expert, Dr. Charles Nenner. Your host, Dennis Tubbergen and Dr. Nenner discuss what the cycles say about the economy, the dollar, the potential for war, and even Bitcoin. As Dr. Nenner reminds, he’s an expert in what’s going to happen, not why it’s going to happen.
Dr. Charles Nenner’s career is truly impressive: he earned a medical degree from the University of Amsterdam in 1984 prior to embarking on a long and distinguished career as a financial consultant, researcher, and analyst. He has worked for Windsor NY, Merrill Lynch, Goldman Sachs, Rabobank International, and Ofek Securities in Tel Aviv.
