This episode is about investing inside the Euro zone as an
independent individual investor. It is an interview with Marc de Mesel, who runs a
blog on investing in Europe in
dutch and also an investing
blog in english. Marc talks about his experience
applying the Permanent Portfolio strategy in a European context. He
also provides his thoughts on speculating in gold and other
precious metals. The episode is provided as food for thought to
encourage critical thinking and independent decision-making in
regard to investment: it is opinion only and should not be
considered any kind of financial advice.
For more information about the concept of the permanent portfolio see Harry Browne's book "Fail-Safe Investing". You can also hear more about the Permanent Portfolio concept in this previous episode. The book that Marc mentions in the episode is "Tomorrow's Gold" by Mark Farber.
