Experience can be a great teacher with many difficult lessons to impart. The marketplace has its seasons that bring both expected and abnormal patterns. Sprott U.S. Holdings Inc.’s President and CEO, Rick Rule, spoke to veteran investor and market economist, Doug Casey. Rick and Doug offer colorful insights into a variety of intriguing topics that will leave you with as many questions as answers.

With decades of experience in the commodity markets it can be an easier feat to weather the storms and bask in the rays of the golden ages. Doug says it is inevitable that the “bad times turn into the good,” and cyclicality comes with the territory. As Rick and Doug reflect on the past 35 years they discuss whether we are at “the beginning of a bull market in commodities” or not.

  • So I’ve got a bunch of stuff that I would normally sell in a yard sale. Except..I got to thinking…what if I could get bitcoin for it instead? Ideally, I would like there to be a site like ebay where people buy items with bitcoin. But I haven’t found anything like that. I know that there are some businesses which have already started accepting bitcoin as a form of payment. However, I’m so unfamiliar with the market that I wouldn’t know what to charge or what would be a fair price. Does anyone know of a site where I can sell items and browse prices? I might be using the wrong search engine or looking in the wrong places. I’m not sure.

  • Perhaps you will find this magnificent BBC documentary interesting. It tells the story of the ancient city of Caral, a little north of Lima on the coast of Peru, which is arguably the oldest city in and the beginning of civilization in the Americas. The Lost Pyramids Of Caral There are two points I would like to make about the story told therein of Caral which I think are relevant to libertarians. 1) The early civilization of Caral apparently arose purely out of commerce. This confirms the insights of the Austrian school of economics. And it may be an example of a commercially organized cooperative human society that antedates the rise of any state. 2) This contradicts the presumptions brought to the study by the archaeologists. For one example, at 7:20 one states the following. You can’t build … on the basis of consensus. You have to have leaders and followers. You have to have specialists. You have to have people who are in charge. People who can tell individual groups, alright, today you will be doing this. This group you are going to be doing something different. In other words, in his academic world, the possibility is inconceivable of that human cooperation could be organized by trade — the marketplace — rather than authority.
