Interview 40: Daniel Estulin

estulin1Investigative journalist and bestselling author Daniel Estulin is this weekend’s guest on Real Politik. Mr. Estulin is renowned for his reportage and research on the transnational power elite, whose decisions greatly influence the trajectory of global economic and political events. His book, The True Story of the Bilderberg Group (2005), is an international bestseller that has been translated into over 40 languages.

This work is now being produced as a feature-length documentary film that will debut in late spring (preview below). Estulin has also been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize for his journalism.


In this hour long discussion Estulin explains recent geopolitical and economic events–the foremost being the standoff between Western countries and Russia. He argues that Vladamir Putin’s de facto opening of the “gold window” for the first time since Richard Nixon closed it in 1971 is a game changer that will eventually have major repercussions for the US petrodollar and broader political economy.
