Tom Welcomes Dr. Stephen Leeb, financial author, wealth manager, and newsletter publisher, back to the show. Stephen discusses China’s imminent plans to launch a digital currency. Initially, it will be used domestically but they plan on taking it international by basing it on a basket of currencies. He believes there will also be a gold backing. It should be simpler to use than the existing monetary system and he expects a lot of countries to adopt this system. A gold backing to this currency will be crucial as the world is tired of the existing US dollar system.

Commodities are increasingly crucial for society and a lot more copper is going to be needed. Energy will continue to be incredibly important to the world. The world isn’t going to accomplish what is needed under the US dollar system.

Gold has always been a threat to the dollar as it has been considered to be the currency of choice for centuries. He discusses the three in the morning raids on gold and why gold is the only commodity out there that can call itself a currency. The U.S. will do anything it can to avoid a gold standard but in the end, won’t be successful.

He argues that bitcoin is terrible due to its energy use and also its use by various criminal organizations.

The United States is buying its own bonds and the financial world is severely out of wack. We see low bond yields and numerous bubbles being pumped up. Mortgages cost very little and payments are low. People today can borrow for very little and buy investments on margin. Low-interest rates are creating dangerous bubbles and distortions. When money is free bubbles are created and are begging for a catastrophe.

Climate change has become a religion and there are severe risks with limiting the oil and gas business. We will need to use a lot of fossil fuel energy to build out renewables. He has serious concerns about the policies surrounding climate change. These policies will have dramatic impacts on the population and the economy. We are creating an economic crisis via flawed policies.
