This audio seminar was recorded live on March 31, 2005 and is second of three in the Precious Metals Miniseries.

"There is no subtler, no surer means of overturning
the existing basis of society than to debauch the currency."

—John Maynard Keynes (1919)

As a follow-on to Precious Metals 101, which was the first seminar in the Precious Metals Miniseries, Catherine interviews precious metals expert Franklin Sanders of The Moneychanger. This program will cover the political and economic landscape of precious metals, both current and historical, as a backdrop for developing your own strategy for including precious metals in your transactions and investments. Catherine and Franklin will focus particularly on the specifics of investing in silver and gold coins.

Franklin Sanders' well-known market scorecard, The Moneychanger Silver & Gold Report, is one of those rare email newsletters that Catherine always reads. For more background and to see a special subscription offer, please see A Moneychanger Interview.

Following the precious metals markets will help you learn how The Tapeworm is draining our finances, and assist you in thinking through transformative strategies to protect yourself, your family, and your community.
