With gold breaking out and Project Zimbabwe in full swing we want to discuss all things gold, gold miners, and crisis investing with natural resources speculator and author, Doug Casey. He literally wrote the book on “Crisis Investing” and has certainly been around the block on all things gold and mining. He has spent the last 4 decades traveling, living and investing in some of the world’s most natural resource rich and politically backwards jurisdictions. When it comes to investing in miners he’s seen it all and during his travels to see these mines he has been the AnCap libertarian thorn in the side of the kleptocrats responsible for much of their country’s economic woes. Bottomline, he is our kind of guy…
