America and the 'Age of Fiat'

What does the outlook for the Chinese Yuan mean to you?

Maybe more than you’d like.

The subject comes up during this week’s podcast by economist, columnist, radio host and international conference speaker Jerry Robinson on his Follow the Money Weekly program.

The discussion is with Axel Merk, founder of Merk Investments and Merk Funds, and manager of the Merk Hard Currency Fund. He’s considered one of the leading authorities on currencies in the world today.

The two discuss the outlook for the Euro, the U.S. dollar, the Australian dollar and China’s currency.

Robinson also is joined by his wife, and show co-host, Jennifer Robinson, to take on the issue of “Seven Global Conflicts that Threaten the World Financial Order.” They address what’s going on in places like North Korea, China, Syria and Iran.

Also joining Jerry Robinson is Nell Minow, the founder of GMI Ratings, a company that raises awareness about shareholder rights and provides extensive coverage of the risks affecting public companies. She has been called “the queen of good corporate governance” by BusinessWeek, and she has received the highest award in the field from the International Corporate Governance Network.

She discusses the importance of “due diligence” in investing, Citibank’s recent change to executive pay, the role that poor corporate governance played in the U.S. financial crisis, Apple’s corporate governance, the latest on Herbalife’s stock and what investors should know about the upcoming proxy season.

Then certified financial planner Jay Peroni shares a brand new stock he just added to his All Weather Investment Portfolio and Tom Cloud talks about the latest in the gold and silver markets.

Podcast is 1:10:30.
