Pepe covers a lot of topics of the moment in this good video interview.
No one has the grasp on so many issues, events, personalities in the geopolitical sphere as Escobar.

Once again, wonderful work by Pepe. This entire interview is an absolute treasure trove of information. It is great to see Pepe at the 46-minute mark mentioning that Russia has been working on a gas OPEC concept for many years and that this is well on its development with Russia/Iran/Qatar,… Read more »

Well said dear Col,  Wholly concur on the noted [ever accelerating] time frame. Both Pepe and MH assume on [more] rational actors overcoming the crazies and stopping the rot. Even if so, it is too far gone given facts being created every week.  Two interesting points:  (1) the Brits aren’t… Read more »

All good @emersonreturn and AHH Note Emerson that I used the term “commentaTORS” as opposed to “commenters”. My comment was in regard to some pretty heavy-weight global geopolitical strategists who just don’t seem to get the point (or don’t want to?) that backing a sovereign currency or a trade-only currency… Read more »

phenomenal reply, thank you col. i am indeed comfortably content to be a ‘ter’ rather than a ‘tor’. thank you for the link, i look forward to listening to it this evening. if you don’t mind, i’m hoping you might explain why the crash & burn of paper results in… Read more »

My understanding is that it will depend on a host of individual and unique circumstances including where you are located when you want to trade using PMs. For example, the units of exchange you agree on could be entirely different in a rural town setting in the Midwest, compared to… Read more »

i certainly agree, that in victoria canada it may be difficult to unload pms. empire will see to it, & i expect the ROW will be so uninterested that empire will continue to rule its vassals unbothered for some time (possibly mh’s 30yrs come into play here). i have difficulty… Read more »
