Welcome to Part 2 of “Readers Pick Doug Casey’s Brain,” straight from the annual conference of the Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada.

Doug and Louis discuss reader questions, among them: The effects of stock market mergers… Will there be another gold confiscation?… Chinese demographics… The next big trends in science and technology… Special drawing rights (SDRs) as currency?… Is there enough physical gold and silver to actually be used as money? … and much more.

How do I protect my wealth from the effects of financial-system collapse? To get answers to all these and more, try The Casey Report risk-free for 3 months today — with full money-back guarantee.]
