Dr. Jim Walker: China in for a Hard Landing; Worst Yet to Come for Europe
No catalyst for gold until after the November elections
Jim is pleased to welcome back Dr. Jim Walker, Founder and Managing Director at Asianomics Limited in Hong Kong. Walker sees a likely hard landing for China, and severe trouble ahead for Europe. He also believes that gold will not react until after the November presidential elections, when the fiscal realities of 2013 take center stage.
