In this podcast, economist, columnist, radio host and international conference speaker Jerry Robinson of “Follow the Money Weekly” delivers his concerns about the petrodollar system.

Robinson is joined by Jennifer Robinson, his wife and co-host, to discuss “Preparing for the Collapse of the Petrodollar System,” another installment in the series, which now is online.

The article discusses why the U.S. invaded Afghanistan, “and more importantly, why we are still there 11 years later.”

Robinson, a global authority on the petrodollar system, documents information never reported on by the mainstream media. And he connects the dots between Afghanistan and America’s protection of the petrodollar system.

Tom Cloud joins the program to talk about the Precious Metals Market Update, offering comment on the movement in gold, silver, palladium and diamond markets.

Then Euan Wilson, from the Socionomics Institute, talks about how social mood can impact social action. Wilson, a graduate of the University of Georgia with degrees in economics and international affairs, has been featured in Time Magazine, USA Today and others.

Jay Peroni, a certified financial planner, then talks about a shoe company that has found a way to buck the trend and stay on top of the fashion world, and John Bearss delivers the week’s Retirement Minute, where he discusses cutting expenses.

Podcast is 1:18:11.
