Doug Casey's Take [ep.#320]

In this podcast episode, Doug and I tackle a broad spectrum of topics, weaving together current events and historical context.

From using gold watches and jewelry for moving money internationally, to discussing John Steinbeck's writings, and examining the impact of the closure of the Groningen gas field on the Dutch economy.

We also talk about (and question) the construction of a military pier off of Gaza and its potential implications, along with a clip of Jared Bernstein discussing government borrowing and printing money.

Finally, we cover Jim Cramer grilling the CEO of Starbucks, the Government crackdown on Bitcoin, and the passing of the Antisemitism Awareness Act.

We finish up by sharing our thoughts on the decline of Western civilization and nostalgia about the past.
