Adam Taggart | Thoughtful Money, Released on 6/23/24

The purchasing power of the world’s major fiat currencies has taken a beating since the pandemic. Just in the US, due to the spike in inflation, Truflation now estimates that the dollar has lost over a quarter of its purchasing power since January 2020. Due to this higher inflation, as well as continued expectations for higher secular inflation over the coming years as globalization declines, nations reshore supply chains and increasingly compete for global commodities, some of which are due for supply shortages — it’s no surprise that more investors are looking increasing towards owning hard assets as a hedge. So what are the most important trends and opportunities in hard assets right now? To find out, we have the good fortune to talk with Rick Rule, perhaps the most seasoned & respected natural resources investor alive today.

Rick Rule, founder and chairman of Sprott Global Resource Investments Ltd., began his career in the securities business in 1974. He is a leading American retail broker specializing in mining, energy, water utilities, forest products and agriculture. His company has built a national reputation on taking advantage of global opportunities in the oil and gas, mining, alternative energy, agriculture, forestry and water industries.
