Turning Hard Times into Good Times: Hosted by Jay Taylor
Using Austrian Economics to Make Money

Jeff Deist, Michael Oliver and Chen Lin return. Few if any investment pros other than Austrian economists saw the housing market collapse before the event. With clarity they knew Keynesian and monetarist economic policies implemented during the Greenspan years would fail. So don’t let anyone tell you that “no one saw it coming.” The same failed policies of the past are continuing to be applied ever since and Austrian economists are once again predicting another economic calamity is drawing near. Applying Austrian economic theory, Jeff Deist will provide an overall picture of what Austrian economic thinkers are predicting and how you can benefit from their foresight or at least prepare for another inevitable breakdown given the stubborn refusal of policy makers to mend their ways. Michael will provide his latest and usual prescient gold, equity and debt market insights using his Momentum structural analysis & Chen will tell us where he thinks you can make money in 2015.
