Business Game Changers Radio with Sarah Westall: Economic Disaster: Do Politicians Have the Courage to Do What's Necessary?

  07/25/2016  12:00 pm PDT

There is almost a unanimous agreement that the world is very unstable today. Countries are reeling from economic debt, social unrest, terrorist activity, and outright criminal activity within the highest levels of their governments and society. It would be a completely dire situation if it weren’t also the most amazing time in history to be alive; advanced technology at our fingertips, medical advancements only dreamed of 100 years ago, and potential beyond our imagination everywhere we look.


It is ironic that at arguably the best time in history, we are also at the most unstable and scariest time as well. Recently, Putin is warning everyone who will listen that we are on the verge of World War III


“…Russia does not wish for the chaos to spread, does not want war, and has no intention of starting one. However, today Russia sees the outbreak of global war as almost inevitable, is prepared for it, and is continuing to prepare for it. Russia does not war, nor does she fear it..”


Our mass media is not covering this explosive story. But there are many other elements that are erupting that are not being covered either. Perhaps the most serious issue we are facing is the weakness of virtually every currency on the planet and the massive debt issues every major government in the world is facing. In the business world, we “solve” this issue by restructuring with bankruptcy and other tools to create a long-term healthy situation. But in the geopolitical and high finance world, this solution appears to elude us. The most important question to ask: are our politicians strong enough, smart enough, and courageous enough to do what is necessary to restructure the world economies to set the world on track for global prosperity and health instead of global economic disaster?


Today’s episode I welcome Andy Hoffman, media director and financial expert for Miles Franklin, one of the oldest and largest precious metals dealers in the United States. We discuss the global economic situation including Brexit, the EU, and the United States. He brings to light many facets of the global economic situation that you may not be aware of including actions made by the various central banks. This is an explosive interview you do not want to miss.
