It's been quite a while since I got Rick "The Terminator" Rule's take on our markets. A lot has changed in the resource sector, so we got together, but it turned into a conversation moderated by Albert Lu rather than an interview. We covered the macro, as the timestamps below suggest, but zoomed in on how those trends affect energy, metals, and mining stocks. We had to talk about gold, of course—which took me to a question about Rick's new bank idea that's been bothering me since he talked about it at the New Orleans Investment Conference. Don't let the subjects mislead you; this was a very practical conversation with guidance I think is very important for resource speculators (and all investors) today.
