In today’s Exponential Investor:

  • A slight change from your usual essay…
  • Nick Hubble and James Early join me for a chat
  • Our debate on gold: sucky or good?

Today, here is a slight change from your usual Exponential Investor essay.

We know a lot of our readers are confused about what’s happening in the markets, the global economy and their portfolios.

You may be one of those people.

That’s why I jumped onto a Zoom call with my fellow editors, Nick Hubble (Fortune & Freedom) and James Early (Southbank Investment Daily) to discuss a very important topic to help untangle some of the confusion right now around a controversial asset class.

When I got the invitation from James Early to get on this debate, here’s what I saw…

Gold: sucky or good?

You might have your own opinions on it. I certainly do. As does Nick Hubble. As does James. And it’s fair to say that we certainly don’t all see eye to eye on it.

But great debate is a staple of smarter investment decisions. That’s why we discussed this idea for almost 30 minutes (we were supposed to go for only around 15 minutes).

However, it’s such a contentious subject, one that everyone wants to try and figure out that we had to get on a call, get this “in the can” and get it out to you pronto.

So here it is, James Early, Nick Hubble and me in debate, Gold: sucky or good?

Until next time…

PS We may not all have the same opinion on gold.. .but one thing we do agree on, is a recession is on its way (if we’re not in one already) and as investors, it’s our job to take the fight to it!
