Dr. Mark Mobius

Peter Pham | Mar 7, 2018 | Singapore

Are cryptocurrencies a kind of religion? According to former executive chairman of Templeton Emerging Markets Group Dr. Mark Mobius, yes they are. And are bull markets actually all that bad? According to Mark, no they’re not. For this edition, Peter Pham meets with the veteran investor and emerging market specialist to discuss a wide range of current issues facing investors and the planet at large.

What begins as a conversation about Mark’s recent focus on Environment-Social-Governance (ESG) standards as indicators of a business’ health then shifts into some darker topics that span geopolitics and the vulnerabilities of blockchain and cloud technology. With his years of experience and stellar investment track record, Mark certainly has what it takes to offer valuable insights on how to successfully navigate the strange and unpredictable world of the new global economy.


Dr. MArc Faber

Peter Pham | Nov 24, 2017 | THAILAND

Marc gets right down to brass tax and addresses the controversy surrounding his recent comments in the media. A tremendous amount of time is spent tracing the rise and fall of empires and what those great societies added to our modern day world.

A cordial conversation continues with Marc delving into sound investment advice and speaks to the hypocrisy of (mostly) American pandering. In Marc’s view every government, the world over, is equally corrupt.

Marc ends with the thought that once you are a prisoner of the system it is very difficult to get out. Prisoners are good for governments as they help boost GDP. GDP, therefore, is not what one should use to measure how well a society is doing. A better indicator is the quality of living among the population.


Robert Kiyosaki

Peter Pham | Nov 20, 2017

Robert Kiyosaki joins the One Road Podcast for a frank discussion about real estate and how duped most of the general populace is when it comes to education and economics.

What constitutes a 'real' teacher is heavily discussed, as is Robert’s time and lessons learned from serving in the Vietnam War.


Jim Rogers

Peter Pham | Nov 14, 2017

Jim Rogers is an author, financial mainstay, and legendary investor who co-founded the Quantum Fund with George Soros. Peter Pham has an enlightening conversation about happiness, finding and following your path, and farming. Roger gets animated about how little we matter and why all things get lost to history.

When Jim Rogers talks, investors listen.

Roger Pielke Jr.

Peter Pham | Nov. 15, 2018

Roger is an American political scientist and professor at the University of Colorado. He has been incredibly active in commenting on the relationship between politics and science in modern society.

He joins the One Road Podcast not to discuss money and markets, but science—specifically scientific modeling, climate change, and the intricacies of correlation versus causation.


Dr. Patrick J. Michaels

Peter Pham | Nov. 28, 2018
