Speaking to King World News the veteran money manager observes that growth in the developed world has stalled and recessions in leading economies are deepening.

Austerity measures in the EU have failed to take effect, and the Europeans are now realizing monetary expansion must continue. In the US, despite the provisional boon provided by a bounce-back in housing, no new industries are being developed to continue growing the economy.

Leeb's conclusion is that gold continues to remains the top pick for prudent investors.

The storied investment guru also expects a major breakout in gold soon, and looking back to historic prices patterns in the late 1970's advocates investing in junior gold miners.
