Whether you're talking about politics, war, or economics, you will find no shortage of commentary from people who claim to be giving you sound advice, but are really just telling you what you want to hear. Or worse, their opinions are based on what they so desperately hope to be true. That's why the best prognosticators are the people who aren't infected with wishful thinking. They're able to confront the truth, no matter how painful that truth is. One of these rare individuals is Marin Katusa, a hedge fund manager who predicted in 2011 that the price of gold and oil would soon crash, despite the jeers of just about everyone else in the investing community. He's also the author of the bestselling book, "The Colder War," which vividly explains Putin's rise to power and his nation's domination of the energy sector.
In the following interview with Future Money Trends, Katusa not only details his expectations for a variety of market sectors like gold mining and energy, but explains exactly why, contrary to what most observers believed before the election, Trump and Putin are likely to clash in the near future; a scenario which could lead to serious geopolitical and economic consequences.
You don't know what to expect with Trump… And from an Art of War standpoint that is the worst possible thing for someone like Putin, who is very pragmatic, to deal with someone like trump… because you don't know what to expect.
