Today one of the wealthiest, street-smart professionals in the markets, who is also business partners with billionaire Eric Sprott, spoke with King World News about his thoughts as we head into 2015 as well as the sins of the past decade.

One would hope, you’ll note that I used the word ‘hope’ again, that the big thinkers of the world are right and that I’m wrong.  I understand the hope people have that Western central planners can print trillions of dollars of counterfeit currency units and that liquidity will overwhelm concerns of solvency.  It certainly has worked for the last 2 or 3 years.  

It would be wonderful to have a set of circumstances where contrived liquidity was the antidote for the sins of the past decade.  I just have a very difficult time seeing that come true.”
