Ron Paul: The End (of the EU) is Near

The CNBC click-bait headline for their Ron Paul interview surely had some readers thinking they needed to check to see if they were stocked up on bullion and bullets, but, the former Congressman from Texas was just talking about the European Union.

Familiar themes here – rampant central bank money creation, serial financial bubbles, widespread malinvestment, goverment overreach, too much debt – that will someday gain wider acceptance as the cause, not the cure, for many of the world’s ills.

As might be expected, 73-year old billionaire investor Jim Rogers isn’t hopeful about what the Brexit vote portends for the global economy and financial markets.

It’s hard to believe that this will be “worse than any bear market you’ve seen in your lifetime”, particularly after the little episode of eight or nine years ago, but you never know.
