Palisades Gold Radio (w/ Lyn Alden): Energy Crisis, Inflation, and the Lack of Sound Money


Palisades Gold Radio
Jan 13, 2023

Tom welcomes back Lyn Alden, Financial Newsletter Editor & Publisher, to the show.

Lyn discusses the difficulty of safely storing wealth from the perspective of inflation and financial censorship. The current world financial system is composed of 180 local monopolies, within which governments demand that wealth is kept, but most are terrible at preserving value. Out of these, only a dozen are any good at holding value. The current system has many inefficiencies and brings significant risk to most.

Half of the world lives under varying levels of authoritarian governments, which often use the financial system as a weapon and have banks that censor global payments.

Historically, money operated at the speed of commerce, but this changed with the advent of modern communications. This delay between payments and delivery of goods has given governments and banks room to arbitrage. Lyn finds value in Bitcoin and some stablecoins, but she describes some of the problems and risks associated with crypto projects.

She also discusses the decline in the Federal Reserve’s remittances function and its impact on the U.S. Government’s finances. Lastly, she discusses the world’s energy requirements and the declining lack of return for what is being invested. Developing nations are looking for cheap, effective energy solutions, while wealthier countries are in a better position to adjust to new technology. She expresses concerns about the lack of capital investment in oil and how this spills over into mining.
