First Twitter Lesson on Infinite Banking in Canada

22 May

Hi friends.  This morning I ran my first “Twitter lesson” for an hour. I can’t take credit for inventing this strategy as I think I stole it from a few people in my timeline who I have seen do the same thing.

In case you missed it, here it is laid out below in the correct chronological order.  Of course, there wasn’t space to get into too much detail with the 140 character limit so if any of these bring up questions for you please ask and I’m happy to answer them.

[VIDEO] Oil Sands Debate at Cambridge House Investment Conference – Marin Katusa from Casey Research and Rex Weyler from Greenpeace

22 Jan

An excellent, well informed and well thought out debate on Canada’s Oil Sands and especially the proposed pipelines that are supposed to run through BC.

It’s great to see some common sense thrown in this mix and not just yelling and screaming from both sides.  It seems like the pipeline debate in BC is dominated by PR talking points on both sides.

It’s refreshing to see 2 people who are clearly on opposite sides of this debate talk it out and propose some sensible solutions.


Marin Katusa – Casey Research Chief Energy Investment Strategist
Rex Weyler – Co-founder of Greenpeace
