Jason Hartman welcomes guest co-host/listener, Brandon, from Portland, Oregon as they discuss several things. First, a discussion of some of Jason's recent book consumption including; Abundance: The Future is Better Than You Think by Peter Diamandis and Steven Kotler and Free: The Future of a Radical Price by Chris Anderson.
Next, Jason and Brandon analyze Peter Schiff's most recent video criticizing Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke and QE3 (Quantitative Easing). Peter has some things right and others wrong. As Jason has pointed out in so many prior episodes gold and silver are mediocre asset classes and shouldn't really be considered 'investments' but rather defensive ways to save money, a way to store wealth and keep pace with inflation.
An investment is an OFFENSIVE tool, gold and silver are only defensive tools. The real way to profit is to exploit the next housing bubble.
