Wars and Piece – Santiago Capital

Featuring Brent Johnson

In this open and honest presentation, Brent Johnson of Santiago Capital assesses the performance of gold in 2014, and asks: if trust in gold is stubborn, what is trust in central banks? Will a strengthening dollar actually be good for the US economy? And if gold is a ‘David and Goliath’ story, why would anyone want to be Goliath?

    Everyone should read at least one of Gladwell's books if not all of them.

    I enjoy Brent's presentations. I read about this and I enjoy these presentations as well. They also help with ideas for talking to others in finance. With lots of BS out there, this a shovel & a rose.

    Nothing new here. No chance of permanent loss of capital? That depends on price. Most enduring asset in history? How about land? Farms? at least they are income producing!

    Gold will run high in a very compressed time as loss of confidence in govt/CB accelerates.

    Gold is not about inflation or deflation...its hedge against confidence in govt. Price action in gold is quite weak no matter how strong arguments of bulls are.

    If you don't already know all this, it is somewhat surprising you have subscribed to RTV. Good that the educational opportunity is here, I guess.

    Interesting analogy. Goliath roared for 40 days before he was challenged. While I am sure the treasure and the girl were great rewards.... I think being free from taxes was the best part of the deal.
