Charles Goyette

The Libertarian mouthpiece and former Valley radio personality signs his new book, The Dollar Meltdown: Surviving the Impending Currency Crisis with Gold, Oil, and Other Unconventional Investments. The tome is targeted at the concerned investor who'd like to take a brickbat to the government, and it naturally caught the fancy of Liberty Caucus congressman Ron Paul. The Texas rep gave Goyette's book a big ol' bear hug of an endorsement, and whether that gets you down to Changing Hands probably depends on whether you're currently digging a bomb shelter slash home school in your backyard. Not that there's anything wrong with that. Hey, it's a free market . . . er, country.

Hmm. Well, let's see.

Are followers of Paul and Goyette nuts, as Clay McNear would have us believe? And, by the way, how good is the track record for "mainstream" economists when it comes to the current economic crisis?

In 2003 Rep. Ron Paul warned us about Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac:

Likewise, Jim Rogers years ago was warning the same thing on Charles Goyette's radio show. Not to mention, the entire subject of the housing bubble was a central theme of his radio show long before everyone became aware that it was a bubble.

But, no, if you are not part of the "mainstream" Clay McNear wants to label you a nutcase. Can't have people questioning authority! Our overlords know best, as they have done a swell job with the economy.
