Breaking the Code of History

A short while ago, I heard about a book containing some radical ideas.

Intrigued, I got my hands on a copy and began to study it.

The ambition of this book is as bold as it simple: to break down human history into a formula that can be used to predict the future.

… and it does a very compelling job of it.

So compelling in fact, that I became determined to get the man who wrote it into our studio to learn more. I wanted to discuss some of his fascinating – and alarming – predictions in detail for UK investors. And I wanted it all on camera, so I could share it with you.

Luckily for me, I got my wish. I travelled down to London a couple weeks back and met him at our office. What followed was one of the most captivating conversations I’ve been blessed to have in our studio. It’s all on tape – and I’ve been chomping at the bit to send it out to you.

That book I read is called Breaking the Code of History. The man who wrote it is David Murrin. He’s an economic and geopolitical forecaster with a remarkable track record of being ahead of the curve.

Here’s just a glimpse of the topics we cover:

  • America’s decline and the collapse of the dollar as global reserve currency
  • How the UK has escaped it’s decline phase and is now in its ascendancy (as revealed by the Olympics, no less!)
  • The spectre of Scottish independence, and how “Global Britain” is destined to clash with China
  • The coming riotous wave of commodity inflation as we continue through the 2020s
  • The end of “The Doomsday Bubble” and the final cycle of empire
  • Sterling’s new status as a safe-haven currency, and the market implications.

And that’s just getting started.

As I say, this is one of the best interviews I’ve filmed in that studio, and I think it’s very much worth your attention – even if you don’t agree with all of David’s views. I hope you enjoy it.

If you’d like to learn more about David’s approach, I thoroughly recommend his book, Breaking the Code of History. You can get a copy at his website here, where he also shares his deep insight as a financial and geopolitical forecaster with regular newsletters to his subscribers.

I hope you enjoy the interview as much as I did. With any luck we’ll be seeing David again in the near future.

All the best,

Not very often that someone with education and experience - and seems a really nice guy - can deliver such a comprehensive overview of the global economy with predictions backed up by science. Full thumbs up from me.

That was really scintillating stuff! What an interesting and insightful character David Murrin is and what a great interview you conducted Boaz. If UK government had but an ounce of his knowledge we would be far better prepared for the future!

That was incendiary! Although that highlights the grim struggle ahead I really did take a positive message from it - thanks very much indeed for sharing this.

Did he miss anything out? Did he use a script? An incredible hour, good interview Boaz, kept quiet!

What a facinating interview. David Murrin is one of the most elequant speakers I have listened to in many years and one of the few people I would love to meet personly. Some scary aspects but the reality is that low cost countries will be a transition until the majoririty aspire to car and home ownership. China will become a superpower with a 1.3bn population compared to the USA even before Russia side with their communist bed fellows. World peace depends on politicians who are skilled in the balance of threat and peace. Do not leave it to the snowflakes. The west must invest in technology and productivity to encourage growth.

Insightful and scary in equal measure. Time to top up my gold and silver holdings...

I can't see the grim determination and fierce will of real military fighting in the western societys, but lots of autoaggression and suicidal naivity.

Ok so changed me underwear and thinking back on this - the bit I snagged was "debt jubilee - write off" If the debt crisis were to be "dealt with" by the Govt / central bank wiping the slate - would this be a good thing or a bad thing? How likely is it? Also, in this excellent interview, Brian mentions automation (Robot Factories) but what about the deflationary effect of this? I contend that inflation is relatively lower than it should be because technology has helped in this respect. Ever buy a smart phone that cost more and did less? Lastly I see the Bloomberg bot has found this video and given it a thumbs down. That'll fix it!
