Stansberry Research, Released on 5/25/23

The historic few weeks that led to three of the largest bank failures in U.S. history have quickly become a secondary headline. But today, we’re going back there. On this episode of Making Money With Matt McCall, Matt welcomes investment legend Jim Rickards. Matt picks Jim’s brain on everything going on in the financial industry. Jim points out that some key headlines are misleading – and explains why he believes the carnage isn’t over yet. But that’s not all. They also talk about the Fed, gold, and the crypto market. Matt and Jim don’t agree on everything… But it’s always good to hear opposing viewpoints on the market.
