FSO Newshour updates

Been catching up with the last couple of weeks of Financial Sense Newshour broadcasts. Lots of topics covered here - definitely give the broadcasts a listen if you haven't already.

Some of the highlights from the recent January 13 and January 20 broadcast:

Jim Puplava and his panel of Newshour experts and guests cover the outlook for the economy, a technical overview of the markets, forecasts on weather trends and the resulting impact on commodity markets (with guest Evelyn Garris of the Browning Newsletter), and opinions on energy and metals markets.

While listening to the first hour of this week's broadcast, I hear energy panel expert, Richard Loomis make some interesting comments on our nation's "energy literacy". This is a competency that Loomis feels is lacking in most individuals, despite the fact that many of us are influencing energy outcomes through politics, investment, and even our daily use of fuel and electricity.

Give a listen and hear Loomis' view on how consumers are being robbed of choice when it comes to selecting our energy future.

Of course, you will not want to miss this week's "guest expert" interview with Marc Faber. Always an interesting and entertaining guest, Marc will be giving us his view of what lies ahead in 2007.

Do check it out and enjoy!
