On this episode of the WTFinance podcast I had the pleasure of welcoming back Alasdair Macleod for a 3rd time – Head of Research for Goldmoney and SchiffGold. During our conversation we touched on the current debt cycle, why the central banks are losing control of the cost of credit, whether this could lead to a credit crisis, why a gold-backed currency would be trusted and more.
