My friend Doug Casey, the original International Man, has long predicted what he calls The Greater Depression. He now thinks it's arrived. But he thought that back in 2008. I was there. I remember. So now I have to ask: is it for real this time? How do we know? And perhaps most important of all: what is Doug doing with his own money? As you'll see, he was a good sport answering some tough questions... and as controversial as ever. You can find out more about what he's up to these days at InternationalMan.com. And if you'd like to know more about the sort of private placements he mentioned at the end, please visit www.IndependentSpeculator.com to see our free Special Report on the subject.
