INN's Charlotte McLeod looked me up to discuss my take on the new Iron Curtain that's resulting from the war in Ukraine and the Western response. Whereas yesterday's interview with Kitco focused on the impact on gold, Charlotte branched out into silver, uranium, and other minerals and commodities. A particularly important part of the story we dug into was that even if The Powers That Be know how catastrophic it would be to stop buying energy from Russia entirely, the "bottom=up" ("self-sanction") activity we're seeing may result in a serious disruption anyway. And this affects far more than energy...
