It was a pure pleasure conducting this interview with Doug Casey, someone I have looked up to for a long time and, in recent years, have grown to know even better as a friend and mentor. Doug is as real as it gets and pulls no punches when it comes to his predictions.

    I don’t think gold. Bitcoiner here so I come from that perspective. Gold was the best we had but hardly anybody uses gold as money. They use certificates on top of gold which can be debased by making more. Bitcoin is more portable and divisible and more easily verified. How do you send one dollar of gold across the internet. How do you take it across a border when you need to flee
