HELP!!! Bill Holter on July 19, 2014 at 2:56 pm don’t know what the problem is, will work on it Monday. Sorry MIA on July 19, 2014 at 8:27 pm Also trying to access (over 24+ hour period) with no luck. Looking forward to when I can. Cheers Brady on July 20, 2014 at 9:23 am Not sure how but I finally got it to play. Great interview Bill! I would really appreciate the links to the Morris Hubbard videos you mentioned. Its been on my mind to ask you why you moved back from Costa Rica and now I know. Its one of the country’s we’ve considered moving to and now have more to think about after hearing this interview. Ive had it in my head that if one lived in a country where credit hasn’t been as available or abused as it has here in the states that things would be less disruptive and violent during the recalibration faze we all face. I can see what you mean by being an outsider / American target. Ive spent a great deal of time in CR and home invasions seam to be common events for outsiders. When you move from one region to another even here in the states you are a outsider. People look at you when speak with a tilted head the same way a dog does. Lots to think about. Thanks for what you do! Bill Holter on July 20, 2014 at 9:38 am You’re welcome Brady. I have a piece written for tomorrow’s print with the links and charts, this is a VERY POWERFUL setup! Costa Rica is filled to the brim with debt as Californians moved in and bid prices to the moon, beach real estate has been decimated in price. When the tent comes down, rest assured that their tent will come down with it. Plus, they use dollars as well as their own currency (colones) so they are tied at the hip to the U.S.. Alan on July 21, 2014 at 12:04 pm I also cannot get this to play it links me to some google site with a link to download the audio and says that too much use has suspended the right to do so or something. I have also been trying to get it for over a 24hr period so i’m really looking forward to hearing it if you guys get it working! thanks Glen on July 21, 2014 at 3:48 pm I moved to Panama from the US and have been here for over 5 years. Panama is dollarized. I that was a good thing at the time since I wouldn’t have to worry about currency exchange. Anyway, the dollar is having a hard time here. They have instituted price controls on 22 food items and inflation is a big problem here. As the price of food goes up, and it will, it will quickly put most foods out of reach price wise for most people here. I didn’t think of this before I moved here. The US does not have this problem because of its generous social programs that disguise the problems that are only too evident in Panama. At any rate, I live in the country, 5 hours by bus away from the city. I really do not know how things are going to unfold here but I do know this. Food is rising by over 10% per year here. That is just a boots on the ground guess and this has been going on for the whole time I have been here. Wages have been going up here but at a far slower pace. The people here already spend half their wages on food. How much longer can they tolerate this food inflation? Thats anyone’s guess. Bill Holter on July 21, 2014 at 4:24 pm when they can no longer eat you will see violence.
