Episode 408

­Every week Max Keiser looks at all the scandal behind the financial news headlines. 

In this episode of the Keiser Report, Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert discuss the four horsemen of the bond-pocalypse. They ride into town, bringing with them the reversal of decades-long trends – as pipe-swipers steal toilets and supermarkets hit the limits of cost-cutting, the population confronts the high cost of backsliding.  In the second half of the show, Max talks to former energy regulator Chris Cook about how the US has moved from dollar diplomacy to gas diplomacy, and about a world where energy is a modern watering hole where you don't have to kill each other. They also examine how a gas-backed currency could become the new global reserve currency in a post-dollar world.
