Louis will present on the financial crisis, which began in the US as a credit crisis and continues to evolve into a Global Systemic Crisis. He will argue that the whole edifice of central banking is failing and that money itself is in crisis. Our global monetary system is in dire need of major reform. Just as there is no way to perpetuate a debt-based financial system in perpetuity, there is no way fiat money can last forever.

He will explain why he believes physical gold offers the best protection from the ongoing destruction of capital and how investment portfolios should implement their exposure to the yellow metal.
