    Mr. Butler really puts together what we all are sort of sensing is going on in the market.brilliantly and concisely lays out not just an investing strategy but an entire mindset for the next decade.

    Gave me the confidence booster I needed to hold on to my losing positions for just that bit longer. It's been a frustrating half year in commodities including precious metals.

    Great video. I just hope hes wrong. Extended No Growth period/major global slowdown doesn't play out well for investments.

    I liked the compressed format (where I don't hear the questions) that provides for a rich 30 minute module. Thank you.

    ... "should a company be worth the difference between the input and output prices, or some multiple of that difference" ~19:45. Wait, what? I understand 'industry standard' but still LOL'd.
