1. What got you started and perked your interest in discussing money, investments and precious metals?
2. The pension crisis, how much does this have to do with the fact that we now have a record number of babyboomers retiring and people living longer?
3. What are some of the ways the US may entertain resolving the pension crisis?
a. Wars
b. Disease
c. Allowing in more immigrants, legal and illegally
4. In addition to what employees pay into their retirement pension, what are some of the ways city, county, state, federal governments and private enterprise fund pension accounts?
5. Those who have silver, gold and other precious metals to sell, why are they selling it to get your dollars, why not keep those precious metals themselves?
6. For individuals, especially millennials, those between 18 and 40 years of age, what would you say is more valuable, investment into critical skillsets or investment into precious metals, adjusting for age?
7. In 2014, after the coup in Ukraine, sponsored with $5 billion from the US, and Crimean citizens voting to secede from Ukraine and rejoin Russia, the Obama Administration applied sanctions against Russia and compelled EU states to do the same. How do you think the US has the power to dictate how and who EU states as well as other states will buy and sell with?
8. Recently, EU states threatened to take their case to the World Court, if the US insisted theyo follow the US in breaking the agreement with Iran and apply sanctions to Iran. Companies such as Boeing and Airbus will lose billions of dollars in revenue. How or can these companies be compensated for these loses resulting from political whims?
9. One US sanctions strategy in 2014 was forcing the price of oil down by forcing the Saudis to increase their oil output which dropped the price at the pumps for more than 3 years but is now going back up. This strategy did not work against Russia. How and what are some of the other systems that are countering American petro-dollar system and SWIFT banking cartel?
10. Regarding the commodity of precious metals, in this case, gold, I recently had a question from a viewer who said:
(Donald Reed)
I watched children in Africa ages 5 – 10 breaking up rocks with one handed hammers in Royal Family / EU / UN Owned Mines. Royal Family receives GOLD Shares from all African Countries & All other counties within the world … Where is the OUT Cry about young African Children breaking ROCKS & Mining? Another way of putting it is, should investors be concerned about the moral methods under which precious metals are attained or more concerned about their profits? Blood diamonds would be a past example.
11. Speaking of metals, often what are ignored are the 4 most strategic metals which is not gold, and silver but chromium, cobalt, manganese and platinum, mostly sourced in Africa. Can or how can African Americans invest in those?
12. Since it has long been a concluded fact that most of the earth’s precious metals are attained in Africa, should there be more education and programs on how Africans themselves can better benefit from what is supposed to be theirs?

  • Thanks T. West. It was great getting to share the importance of monetary awareness with your viewers. Here are the links I referred to at the end of our chat about resources available at Rethinking the Dollar:

  • Remember, the bigger the government the smaller the individual. Government is way too big we are being taxed to oblivion.

  • who gave YALL a thumbs down.. big ups!!!

  • great analysts these two gentlemen. Decency / humility = intelligence

  • China created CIPS (Cross-Border Interbank Payment System) to compete with SWIFT. I think Russia found a way to work without the SWIFT system completely. However, SWIFT refused to cut Russia off from the system. Russia and China have purchased tons of gold as well. The PetroYuan has also been introduced. Other great financial YouTube stations include X22 Report (one of the best), The Money GPS, Economy of World, Peter Schiff, Jim Willi interviews on many stations and he's really good, and some others. I've checked out Rethinking The Dollar with Mike as well. He has some good videos out there. It's great that AfriSynergy is doing this segment…black people (as well as others) need to really get prepared and start prepping for what's coming up (the government is not going to be the savior)….it's going to be catastrophic.

    In addition, we're already in a recession. The recession from 2008 was never rectified. Precious metals are a good investment as the shift in the monetary takes place you will reap great rewards when it comes to exchanging your precious metals for whatever currency is in usage. Gold, silver, and other PMs will ALWAYS be accepted around the world. That's if you can afford to purchase them (you don't have to purchase large quantities) and hold on to them. Oh yeah, before taking a trip in the desert do your homework (you can live up to 48hrs on your own sweat in intense heat if you know what your'e doing) and you probably won't have your gold with you anyway! But I understand what the podcast host was getting at…LOL

  • Foreigners Are here to Re-place us,
    And, our Children.
    And we wanna help them?

  • I had to catch my breath when I read your title T. West, I'm so happy!

  • got me thinking and rethinking. i had a question. is there a place outside of the US that is a good place to consider going when the $ falls? i know it will get a point in time that no place will be a safe haven accept The LORD be with you. but its nothing wrong with human thoughts and a plan😊

  • oh wow um listening attentively and YES…as far as getting our people the words and advice to fall in their hearts and deaf ears is to get the GOD given gifts from our people to our people. all this was excellent ..excellent interview t. west!!!👏🏽👏🏽👍🏾👍🏾

  • That's right! You can get that gold again!

  • Everybody should invest in precious metals! Gold, silver, palladium, platinum, etc, etc….

  • I have one question that comes to mind. Firstly thanks for this program. What would happen if the US stop trying to impose their will upon other nations through sanctions and wars? It also seems to me that with the digital or tech developments, it seems that crypto currency is surely a huge part of our future monetary structure.

  • Another very good educational interview with Bro.Mike,we as an People needs more young men like him….give thanks!

  • T West, you should check out this brother named Mark From Anaheim. He is a former Marine and ex LAPD cop and is very informative in political, social, and military matters. Here is a link to his Facebook page and a video with him and Judge Joe Brown in an interview.

  • The government is stealing indigenous people land and the resources on many communities lands in African.  The strategy came from the west.  They are doing it in Europe.  It should be international crime for government to steal people land in our 21st century.

  • That is why they are destroying countries and looting their gold and silvers like they did Libya.

  • These are Brilliant black people.  This guy explaining complex monitory functions.

  • I'm subscribed to Rethinking the Dollar, I enjoy the channel.

  • Everytime I hear about financial collapse, I think about all the options. Gold and silver is one, but I also have to consider if those metals don't hold value. Things may not escalate to Mad Max level, but it would be smart to have things that hold value in such situations. One thing you should also hold close is family, more strength in numbers.

  • Oh yeah , This is awesome, I also watch Gerald Celente as well for economy advice , This is a great and one of the most instructive videos that people should be taking very seriously, A far I can see things are about to turn very ugly and we should be putting our money , investments where at least don't lose the value .. Economics is a bit more complicated and complex but not impossible to understand if we put our minds and study how it works But once you learn how the trickery works it is all based in basic principles , Now the important thing is your INDIVIDUAL CHOICES .. Guys dont wait until it's too late ..

  • Wow….glad you brothers got together!! I'm a subscriber to both channels.

  • This was a Golden Interview so far for me in this year, thank you to Brother Mike and Brother T.West for such an informative, knowledgeable dialogue!!!

  • California is going to run into pension problems because of the mass exodus going on

  • Big fan of both you brothers. Keep up the great work gentlemen

    I'm checkin' out "EMPIRE" Right now,
    On fox 5, And, They DON'T even have ONE, Dark-skin-black-person, (IN THE BAND) makin' music.
    Now…For those that will say, "Why are you hatein' on, Light-skin people"
    I'm not "HATEIN" On anyone.
    Why DON'T they have light-skin, & dark-skin, People, In the band?
    Well…I say "Ain't no problem with that"
    But, Aren't They, The same people that keeps tellin' others,
    About "DIVERSITY" Which really means "ETHNIC-REPLACEMENT".

  • I've been waiting for that conversation for weeks now, glad to you brothers link up, I love watching his YT channel, I like that he's doing something that we as BLACK PEOPLE usually don't get into and Brother T.West, you should do an interview with a Brother name WILLMORTIVATION on YT, that guy has really pushed me to do some investment in different avenues myself, we really need Brothers and Sisters with that type of Mindset in our community…

  • I was waiting for this brother, two of my main sources of news on YT.
