We all know that central banks and governments don’t present accurate economic data. While they report inflation at roughly 4 percent, we all know from our own experience at the grocery, gas pump, and just about everywhere else we spend money that inflation is likely much closer to 20 percent annually. Globally, debt is over 330 trillion today, and the derivatives market is estimated to exceed $2 quadrillion. Don’t miss this week’s episode of Retirement Lifestyle Advocates radio, where your host, Dennis Tubbergen, talks with Egon von Greyerz about his forecast for how global debt and derivatives risk will be reconciled and what that means for the future of our economy, the markets, and the financial system. Spoiler alert… it ain’t pretty.
Egon von Greyerz is the founder and managing partner of Matterhorn Asset Management. He began his professional life in Geneva, Switzerland, as a banker and thereafter spent 17 years as the Finance Director and Executive Vice-Chairman of Dixons Group Plc. During the 1990s, Egon von Greyerz became actively involved with financial investment activities, including mergers and acquisitions and asset allocation consultancy for private family funds. This led to the creation of MAM as an asset management company based on wealth preservation principles.
If there’s a time in your life when you’re going to be cautious in investments, and that’s everything, stocks, normal corporate and high-yield bonds, everything but the Treasury bonds, which are the safest in the world, the 10 and 30-year, it’s now. Joining your host, Dennis Tubbergen, on Retirement Lifestyle Advocates radio this week is economist and demographics expert Harry Dent. Dent tells us that while the Fed printed its way out of the economic crash in 2008, the next crash will be much bigger because the recent boom was all artificial.
Harry Dent is internationally recognized for the accuracy of his economic forecasts and is the author of the #1 best-selling book, Zero Hour. He’s appeared on “Good Morning America,” PBS, CNBC, CNN, and Fox News. He’s been featured in Barron’s, Investor’s Business Daily, Entrepreneur, Fortune, Success, U.S. News and, World Report, Business Week, The Wall Street Journal, American Demographics and Omni. He is a regular guest on Fox Business’s “America’s Nightly Scorecard.”
We have said for many years that the easy money policies of recent years end in inflation followed by deflation, or deflation. This week’s guest on Retirement Lifestyle Advocates radio, Mr. Kerry Lutz, echoed that idea in his conversation with your host, Dennis Tubbergen. In response, Lutz sees that in an inflationary environment, the price and purchasing of gold go higher, and in a deflationary environment, the price of gold goes lower, but the purchasing power goes much higher. You’ll want to hear the whole conversation as they also discuss the stock market, real estate, and much more.
Kerry Lutz has been a student of Austrian Economics since 1977. While attending Pace University, he stumbled upon an extensive cache of Austrian Economic Literature in a dark, musty, abandoned section of the school’s library. After graduating from The New York Law School, he became an attorney and lifelong serial entrepreneur. In 2010, Kerry gave up most of his other interests to pursue his desire of becoming a radio show host and founded the Financial Survival Network, whose mission is to help you prosper and thrive in the New Economy.
Two years ago, the 10-year US Treasury note was yielding .50 percent. Now it’s 4.8 percent. That debt is rolling over, and the money that it costs to service that debt is skyrocketing. Soon, 35 percent of all tax revenue is going to pay just the interest on our national debt. Our guest this week, Michael Pento, outlines his projections for the coming recession and talks with your host, Dennis Tubbergen, about the effects on the bond market, equities, real estate, and more as Retirement Lifestyle Advocates radio delivers another show you don’t want to miss.

Gold is relatively currency-agnostic. So, if you hold gold and your currency fails, your gold holds its value.
