Doug Casey: The Economy is Dominated by Political Entrepreneurs & Economic Parasites

Wall St. For Main St., Released on 9/8/17

During this 30+ minute interview, Jason asks Doug about the surveys saying how most adult Americans in different age demographics prefer socialism to capitalism. Yet, many of the same people cannot give an accurate definition of what capitalism is. Why is this happening?

Jason and Doug discuss how cultural Marxism has become pervasive throughout American culture, Hollywood, the mainstream media, government schools and universities.

If you live in the US and you are middle class, by a job or owning a small business you are forced to be a capitalist to try and save and grow your capital because there is (probably) no bailout coming for you!

It’s taken decades to change the economic and political systems by political entrepreneurs, but now the systems are built by parasites for parasites designed to siphon off wealth from the middle class into the hands of economic and political elites. The bailouts during and after the 2008 global financial crisis made the wealth disparity between rich and poor even worse! Unintended consequence or done intentionally?

Jason then asks Doug about his first and second fiction novels and how his newest book is different from his first fiction book?

To wrap up the interview, Jason asks Doug about his international travels looking for new investments of speculations, whether Doug speculated on Bitcoin or other crypto currency and if the US is headed towards an ideological civil war in the next 10-15 years?
