    I don't trust this man; he has the mannerisms of a politician. Has a few good points but are they exclusively his? I doubt it. Wouldn't surprise me to see him being investigated by the SEC a few years from now, hehe.

      I think that is unfair (if you intended it to be taken seriously). Politicians speak well but say nothing. John speaks well and knows precisely what he is talking about. In fact, he is so good at explaining things that he could have his own TV show.

    Strongly agree with Kirk. Have watched the past few interviews which Ned-Naylor-Leyland conducted. He is such a terrible interviewer. Please have him changed.

    Bitcoin addresses this already, just a lot better and proven of course. We'll let you put gold ownership on the Bitcoin blockchain....the one and only true blockchain.

    Good interviwee; awful interviewer. Rathet than just leading the conversation, the interviewer babbles on, making the conversation unnecessarily confusing.

    I am old enough to remember Banker's Acceptances which he alluded to. Funnily he seems to be describing an electronic based returned to BA's.; only the 'banks' aren't in the middle.

    This gentleman was too "corporate", didn't come across to me as unbiased and independent thinking

    I reiterate Gary's recommendation to view the BitGold presentation. Very interesting development in the gold space

    Be aware that BitCoin and BitGold have nothing in common but their name. Also, to understand the practicality of BitGold view their payment tutorials on YouTube.

    RV should interview Roy Sebag. BitGold is a pivotal development as it represents the return of commodity money on a global basis. Its interface with fiat is a beautiful idea.

    Real Bills doctrine.."short term credit self extinguishing, used only for productive, worthy investments" So the Wall streeters, carry traders will revert back to crow bars for leverage.....

    John always makes the confusion and fuzziness of the world economy past and present, to come about in a clear and easy way to understand. Quite a sharp mind indeed.
