In this Commodity Culture interview, Jesse Day asks me how I got into speculative investing, how it differs from regular investing—or gambling—and how I go about doing it. We also got into my favorite areas for speculating today, including gold and silver stocks (which is different from buying bullion for "insurance"), copper, uranium, oil, and more.
