Civil War Is Coming, says Dalio. Plus: What Young Men Should Do, Elon Musk, Liberland, Sark, Trump, Capital Controls and More

Doug Casey's Take [ep.#334]

Billionaire Ray Dalio thinks civil war is coming. Not with guns, maybe. But a war all the same. You'll have to choose. Fight for a side. Keep your head down. Or run.

He sees the signs. Wealth gaps. Populism. Media lies. Rule of law breaking down. It's happened before. France. Russia. China. Now here.

On today’s episode, we discuss Dalio’s warning and answer questions from members of the phyle.
