Author of The Aftershock Investor: The Big One is Coming!

China credit crisisRobert Wiedemer, best-selling author of “The Aftershock Investor,” says the so-called recovery is “100 percent fake.”  Our entire growth is due to government borrowing . . . it’s a fake recovery.
On the bond market, Wiedemer contends, “ The money we are printing, ultimately, will create inflationThat’s really going to be a problem for the bond market.
On gold, Wiedemer says to not believe the false narrative that gold is a “risky” investment: “Let’s look at gold since 2000.  Up 12 years in a row, every single year.  That’s risky?  We’re still up over 300% from where we were in 2000!
For anyone who thinks we’ve seen the worst of the bad economy—think again.  Wiedemer predicts, The big one is coming . . . we’re just pumping up the bubbles, and all that’s going to do is make them a lot worse when they pop. . . . You are just putting more gun powder under the house . . . that’s a big mistake long term.”

  1. Yes, “it is a fake recovery” so it is time to use real assets as Silver/Gold & other resources back into the monetary system.
    Please live abundantly.  Keep Stacking (silver).

    WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) — The number of Americans who applied to receive unemployment benefits rose last week and the gradual decline in claims since last year appears to have halted, perhaps a sign the U.S. labor market is not healing as fast as it was toward the end of 2013.
     Yet? Nothing has happened negatively in the stock market. Precious Metals should have exploded upward today.

      Are these guys snorting cocaine again?  What do they mean about the labor market healing in 2013?  It didn’t.  All we had in 2013 were some bogus numbers tossed out that made it APPEAR that the labor market was improving and a bunch of knuckleheads accepting that drivel as if it was true with zero fact-checking on their parts.  Failing to count millions of people who have been unemployed for so long that their benefits have run out does NOT equate to them finding jobs.
       

  3. Financial collapse,Dollar reset,Dollar blow-up, Europe implosion,Bank closings,Gold/silver shortages, Gold to explode…. Right now in Raleigh,N.C. building is going crazy, restaurants are full on the weekends,and people are buying new cars(there are probably 15 mega-sized car dealerships within 5 miles of where I live that are full of inventory) When are the pm’s investors going to be vindicated? If someone else says it will happen when things can no longer go on as they have in the past, I think I will puke up a hairball!

    • the high quantity of new car sales are due to low intrest rates. i think they now account for 20-25% of consumer spending. to me it represents the mindset of the american people rather than whats in their wallets. alot of people in america are still stuck in a mass consumer mindset.  with still so many believing in a recovery it comes down to the peoples perception. i sure almost all those cars are bought with little or no deposit. the fall will come when the world starts to reject the us dollar which is happening slowly. As stackers we cant help but look forward towards the collapse. although we must remeber it is better if it never comes. An empire doesnt fall in a day.

    • All done on credit I bet

    • They are doing the same stupid crap with auto loans that they did with housing loans in 2003-2007… and we all know how wonderfully well that worked.  Nationwide, auto inventories are building substantially.  New car sales fell in January.  It’ll be interesting to see if there is any increase in auto sales / reduction in auto inventory in Feb or March.  Yes, it is more than possible that car and home sales are spotty and depend considerably on the local economy.

  4. When the hell is Greg going to learn to be succinct with his questions and patient with his guest’s answers?

  5. “The money we are printing, ultimately, will create inflation.”     
    Time will tell, for 5 years still not much.

    • @zman,
      Still not much?  WTF?  I thought the definition of inflation is the increase of the money supply.  No, sorry, I didn’t think it, I know it.  If you are suggesting that the money supply has not been increased in the last 5 years, then you might be a bigger idiot than everyone thinks you are.  Maybe. 

    • @hromano1030
      “I thought the definition of inflation is the increase of money supply”
      Under “normal” economic conditions you would be correct, but we can see that in 2009-today the correlation broke down.
      “In a depressed economy (liquidity trap) this correlation break down because of a fall in the velocity of circulation. This is why in a depressed economy Cenral Banks can increase money supply without causing inflation.”

    • zman … “Cenral Banks can increase money supply without causing inflation”

      HAAAAAhahahahaha … HAAAAAAAAhahahaha

      Plain multiplication and division can’t be BS’d out of relevance. It can be hidden from, but not run from.

    • @hromano1030  I thought the definition of inflation is the increase of the money supply”
       
      Inflation is the increased in price of goods and services. Increased money supply may be a cause but not a definition of inflation. You may want to go back to Economics 101 before you start shooting your mouth.
       
       
      The liquidity trap makes perfect sense. Our fiat creation in the last 5 years is a drop in the bucket for balancing bad paper. The sentiment here is that money supply should be directly correlated to gold price (and it is not) and based on ratios of yesteryear. The creation of dollars does not run the world, it just lets live another day. 
       
      You want to get gold moving? We need credit expansion like we saw from 2000-2008. The derivatives market will take $1 and turn it into $1000 like nothing. Now THATS money velocity and inflation in ALL sectors. We all still treading water in a deflationary death spiral and an un-credit worthy world.
       
      OR, you can be a crybaby PM investor: “I was never wrong and my timing was correct, its all goverment manipulation!…fundamentals are gone…my grocery bill high….supply is low and demand is high…blah blah blah”
       
       
       
       
       
       

    • kintama … “go back to Economics 101 before you start shooting your mouth” … “you can be a crybaby PM investor”

      This is great. When a thread begins drawing Jack-Boot types, forcefully asserting emotionally diversionary, Orwellian NewSpeak opinionated ‘definitions’ which we’re expected to accept in timid acquiescence … we have a strong hint that we’re hunting along the correct trail!

      See: http://inflationdata.com/articles/2010/07/21/real-definition-inflation/

      My copy of The American Heritage Dictionary 2nd Coll. Ed., 1985, reads: … “in-fla-tion (in-fla’-shen) n. 1. The act of inflating or the state of being inflated. 2. Econ. An abnormal increase in available currency and credit beyond the production of available goods, resulting in a sharp and continuous rise in price levels.”

      Perhaps, the purported ‘school’ in which you were indoctrinated with their version of ‘Econ-101′, was a waste of your parent’s banknotes.

    • Your 1985 definition of “sharp and continuous rise in price levels” appears to be broken within the entire commodity market. Wait…your government manipulation theory makes you definition work so you don’t have throw out your copy just yet. Thanks for your continued patriotism Pat. 
       
      The actual availability of this “increase in available currency and credit” is the subject of our debate, isn’t it? The momentum our credit expansion has not increased hence our liquidity trap. The big boys work with credit and gold responds to credit expansion. The classical conception of “banknotes” to gold is lost and has been for a while. Therefore fiat creation doesn’t have to stimulate gold prices because the bond purchases are just peanuts in the scheme of things in a deflationary environment.

      Whether the definition is “Orwellian” or not doesn’t even matter because the definition doesn’t fit (yet). Spare me the stories to the grocery store because that seems to be the only index people use around here. 
       

  6. Weidemer is always trying to sell something but his book Aftershock, started my on the path to transformation and the Red Pill.   that was nearly 4 years ago.  I wish I had read his material 3 years before and avoided the worst of the 2008 crash.

    • @AGXIIK
       
      This was an interesting interview.  I need to get this book and take a long hard look at it.  Hell, every time Weidemer opened his mouth, I thought that I was hearing myself talk.  This is like the old joke about “that fellow is brilliant… he agrees with me!”.  lol
