This week on the Solari Report, Dr. Joseph Farrell joins me for a discussion of his new book Covert Wars and the Clash of Civilizations.
The current debate around the future of the dollar as the world’s reserve currency is intense. The US government is managing a series of political defeats – from global NSA scandals, to domestic unemployment and health care woes. And yet, the value of the US dollar has remained relatively strong.
Joseph and I pick up on our prior discussions on the the breakaway civilization (Click here for Part I and Part II), to discuss the investment, military and intelligence interests that support and depend on the dollar to remain the global reserve currency. We start with a discussion of the phenomenon and risks that the national security infrastructure has faced historically, how that may relate to financial scandals of the last two decades and to investment in North America today as well as the growing tensions between the US and its traditional allies in the G-7.
This is a wide ranging conversation – two hours in length – that explores numerous unanswered questions at the heart of the challenges and opportunities before us.
In Money & Markets this week I will discuss the latest events in the domestic and global financial markets. In Let’s Go to the Movies, I will review the newly released Ender’s Game, based on Orson Scott Card’s award winning science fiction novel by the same name.
Talk to you Thursday!
