Doug Casey on Crisis Investing, Political Risk, and a Benign Anarchy!



Welcome to Capital Account. The US economy slowed in the second quarter: GDP rose at 1.5% on an annualized basis according to the Commerce Department. The Wall Street Journal points out that this current economic 'recovery' is the second weakest rebound post World War II. Cue speculation about the Federal Reserve taking more action, or talk of how government GDP numbers aren't reliable anyway. How does this so-called recovery lag compared to others, and when did things really start going downhill economically in the US. Was it after a peak of good times for America in the late 50s to mid 60s, with the 1959 cadillac a relic of a bygone era? We are not just talking about its iconic tail fins, but of the decent standard of living for Americans that it represents -- one that was NOT built on unsustainable debt supplanting stagnant wages. Or was what sealed America's fate the 1971 closing of the gold window by Richard Nixon? We will talk to Doug Casey, bestselling author and founder and publisher of Casey Research, for his thoughts.

Also, Spain has, for the first time, conceded it may need a full EU IMF bailout, according to Reuters. Meanwhile, Spanish unemployment has hit the highest level since its transition to democracy post-Franco. We will take stock of the Eurozone crisis with the man who literally wrote the book on Crisis Investing, Doug Casey.
Finally, our own Demetri Kofinas will debrief us on Agora Financial's "Innovate or Die" conference, which is wrapping up today in Vancouver. Demetri will hopefully tell us how to avoid death, no pun intended.
