Is the "great deceiver of mankind" in your wallet?
Probably, according to economist, columnist, radio host and international speaker Jerry Robinson, who this week uses his "Follow the Money Weekly" program to address the concept of money, debt, and the future.
He uses part of his podcast for a broadcast of an interview he did while visiting the Prophecy Summit at Pikes Peak recently.
In that, he discusses how "money is one of the great deceivers of mankind, becoming the sole ambition of far too many."
He also analyzes how the American system of money is based on debt, how money controls politicians, the media and corporations, and how money is used by corrupt institutions to control people.
In the interview, Robinson explains why a proper understanding of money and basic economics helps one to "follow the money" and make sense of the world – a valuable skill in troubled times.
He notes that economics plays a "major role" in the book of Revelation, and plays a significant part in many studies of prophecy.
"I believe money, in fact, is one of the great deceivers," he said.
Robinson also is joined on the podcast by John Bearss, who has been in the investment and insurance business for over 25 years.
Bearss explains what's driving the current market volatility and shares one of his favorite strategies for those nearing retirement: the three buckets of money. One bucket is for liquid savings. Another bucket is for risk-based investments. And the third, and final, bucket is something Bearss refers to as protected growth.
Finally, Tom Cloud joins the program for his weekly precious metals update.
Podcast is 53:53.
