Greetings from Argentina! I’m Rob Marstrand, investment director at UK Independent Wealth, which is Fortune & Freedom’s sister publication. I’m taking the reins from Nick this week, in the regular catch-up with Nigel on what’s happening and how it affects us all.

Energy and food prices are rocketing, the West is starting to cut off Russian energy exports, Saudi Arabia is reluctant to increase the oil supply, and the UK government seems confused between the costs of essential commodities and the security of their supply.

Meanwhile, gold is providing an investment safe haven during the chaos.

Find out what Nigel Farage makes of this week’s news, and the news coming in a few months’ time, in this video…

And if you’d like to hear from Nigel and other guests more often and more conveniently, why not sign up to the new Fortune & Freedom podcast on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Amazon Music or Google Podcasts?
