Going live in half an hour…

Capital & Conflict – brought to you by Fortune & Freedom

CHEDDAR, SOMERSET – Afghanistan, the “Graveyard of Empires”, claims another tombstone.

The US joins the Soviet Union, the British Empire, and a long list of ancient powers that were bested by this unforgiving country at the centre of the world.

Is the sun now setting on America’s superpower status, just as it was for the Soviet Union?

Considering America’s position within the global economy (No. 1), it’s not a question investors can afford to get wrong…

For my colleague John Butler, America’s withdrawal from Afghanistan is a signal that the “petrodollar” system – which crowned the dollar currency king in the 1970s – is falling apart. And if the global reserve currency starts losing its value in a hurry, we might be in for quite the ride…

That’s what we’ll be discussing in this week’s episode of Southbank Live in half an hour.

This is a new weekly show we’ve begun broadcasting in real time on YouTube – check out our recent episodes for an idea of the format, like last week’s here where we discussed who might be manipulating the gold price.

The show is a platform to discuss pressing market events and investment themes over the past week directly with you, our readers. There’s a live comment box where you can ask questions or provide feedback in real time – I encourage you to join us, and join in.

Please note that we cannot provide personal financial advice on the show. The purpose of Southbank Live is to discuss broad investment themes only.

We’ll be going live at 10am sharp here. I hope you enjoy it!

If you’re busy and can’t make it, have no fear – a recording will be available on that same link soon after we’ve finished.

All the best,
