By Greg Hunter’s 

Best-selling author Doug Casey wrote “Crisis Investing” at the time when the U.S. political landscape was transitioning from the Carter Administration to the Reagan Administration. Now, Casey sees a coming crisis that is equal or worse than the Civil War.  Casey explains, “In the U.S. right now, there seems to be so much antagonism it’s almost like pre-Civil War.  There is actually hatred in the U.S. at this point.  It used to be the Republicans and Democrats could disagree, but they could have a civil conversation about a difference of opinion.  Now, it’s active hatred between these two groups.  This is not going to end well.”

Casey thinks the coming financial collapse will be the trigger. Casey says, “It’s going to come down eventually.  I am worried about that, but we are in a situation where the country seem like it is just before a civil war.  It will be more serious than just a financial collapse, and it is likely to be set off by a financial collapse.”

Casey says financial markets are all in bubble territory, but the bond market is in the biggest bubble of them all. Casey contends, “What papered things over?  Why did it get better for the last few years?  These governments have lowered interest rates to not just zero but less than zero in parts of the world.  They have created scores of trillions of new currency units which have poured oil on the financial waters.  That currency still exists and it’s going to come out, and it’s going to evidence itself in the form of retail inflation.  So far, it’s just been inflation in the financial markets.  They’ve created a bond super bubble.  They’ve created a stock market bubble.  They have created a real estate bubble in a number of places in the world.  So, this is going to be very, very ugly.  It’s hold on to your hat time.”

What is this going to look like to the man on the street? Casey says, “The country has been living way above its means.  The U.S. runs about a trillion dollar trade deficit with the rest of the world, but it’s a great deal for us.  The U.S. prints up dollars and we ship them dollars, and they send us Sonys and Mercedes and coffee and all sorts of things imported into this country, but that can’t go on forever.  So, what’s it going to look like?  It will be very high levels of inflation.  In 2007 to 2009, people lost their jobs.  When a society is living above its means, people like waiters and bartenders . . . they’re fired because people are going to have to do those things for themselves.  So, you are going to see lots of unemployment.  There could be a lot of social upsets in this country.”

What about gold and silver? Casey says, “A number of governments around the world, not the U.S. but the Russians and the Chinese, are buying a lot of gold.  Why?  Because it’s the only financial asset that is not simultaneously somebody else’s liability.  It doesn’t matter whether we have runaway inflation or catastrophic deflation, the gold is there.  It’s an actual asset unlike the paper governments’ print up.  There is no point in owning paper today because interest rates are so low.  Interest rates are below the level of actual inflation at this point.  People should buy gold and they should buy silver. . . . They’re going to both go up.  I’ll say this again, gold and silver are the only assets that are not simultaneously someone else’s liability.  So, there is going to be a panic into them at some point, and some point soon I think.”

  • It will not be a civil war.
    A civil war is where one half of the population fights the other half over some mutually agreed long standing grievance. Often cultural, religious, or ethnic in origin. The sides are very clearly defined.

    It will not be a revolution either.
    Where the whole population rises up spontaneously against an unjust government.

    It will be total anarchy and lawlessness, every person against every other person without any long term plan or end game. There can be no winner and no way an arranged formal peace can eventually be declared.

  • Yes, I see the reality of what you guys are saying. However, I believe that Jesus Christ will minimize the violence. The democratic party will be destroyed over this conflict. Communism and all forms of socialism must and will die.

    America was founded a Constitutional Republic. Bob Beckle of FOX News, why can you not get that fact through your thick skull.

  • These guys have been spouting this kind of BS for so long that many of us who have followed them have given up on their BS…they don’t know anything about anything…go back and listen to their BS from 3 years ago and its all the same. Econ collapse, total disarray in society, government out of control…GOLD AND SILVER to EXPLODE in 30 to 90 days…It never ends with these guys. I come here just to tell everyone that their game is to get you to give them money, buy their monthly reports, or just to earn money from all the folks who still believe in them and go to their sites, as for me I gave up 2 months ago…nothing they could tell me or even show me would change my mind…TOTAL BS. Bought silver on their recommendation a long time ago and still kicking myself for believing them.
    Listen to them at your own risk, but as for them knowing anything…they dont!

    • Patience diogan, patience.

      History takes time to unfold. But some things are very clear. The current corrupt and predatory economic system is totally unsustainable. The elite assume that with fake paper they will eventually own everything and everyone.

      The spiritual people (myself included) see all that as a very minor side issue.

      What is happening now with Putin and Trump is the slow triumph of good over evil.

      The bad guys are destroying each other.
      This pedo pizza thing is an excellent example of scum ratting on each other to try to save themselves. The frantic efforts of The Bushes Clinton’s and Obama to escape justice is hilarious.

      There is a very old truism.
      When TSHTF the good guys stick together, and the bad guys turn on each other.

      We certainly live in interesting times.

  • First Trump needs to dump the federal reserve ! They have committed crimes against humanity with a no win game system that has no possible way of paying off the debts . The interest money was never printed , so therefore there is no way it can be paid off . Only the loan money was printed and that’s all that exists . They committed Treason against our Constitution . They removed and stole all the gold and silver that use to be coins by melting them into bars and then transported it over seas . Trump needs to declare every American debt removed and freed from this foreign entity . The federal reserve is not an America corporation , it is foreign . They now want American land , buildings and even to own the people . This is Treason and our Constitution tells us plainly these people are to be strung up before the people as examples , to detour anyone else trying to pave that way again . Trump needs to start coining gold and silver coins again . They stand for the value by itself . Example , a one ounce gold coin is worth $1247.00 on today’s market . The paper with pictures of dead presidents is worthless , why ? Because the gold and silver they removed as being coins and melted into bars is no longer in Fort Knox representing the pieces of paper , they are worthless ! Now the federal reserve wants to pull the plug and put you into a computer system , so they can at a push of a Button remove anyone’s money or accounts at their desires . Then they own everything you have . This is why Our Constitution warned us not to allow anyone to remove our coin system . They should have marched them out before a firing squad when this shadow government began destroying our coining system . Today they think they own America and its people because of their evil game system . But Our Constitution says other wise . No foreign entity shall own or possess America or its citizens ! Shut down the federal reserve toady and free the American people of their evil game ! Then tell the rest of the world what they have done to them . Maybe because they are closer to them they will deal with them and we won’t have too . This shadow government and reserve system is none other than the NWO , Vatican , natzi regime . Why do you think they have walls and guards around their so called city . And inside underground are their vaults with treasures stolen from almost every country in the world . Damn lizzard bastards ! Even GOD in Malachi 1:1-4 calling them Esau the Edomites , says HE hates them . End this nightmare run the federal reserve out of America !
