They&#39;re living within it right now.</p> <p>This week, we catch up with Fernando &quot;FerFAL&quot;&nbsp;Aguirre, who began&nbsp;<a href="http://ferfal.blogspot.com/p/contact-me.html" target="_blank">blogging</a>&nbsp;during&nbsp;the hyperinflationary destruction of Argentina&rsquo;s economy in 2001 and has since dedicated his professional career&nbsp;to educating the public about his experiences and observations of its lingering aftermath. Given his first-hand experience with living through, and eventually escaping, economic collapse in South America, we asked him to offer his insider&#39;s perspective on the current crisis in Venezuela, as well as the devolving situation in Brazil.</p> <p><a href="http://www.peakprosperity.com/podcast/98435/ferfal-understanding-societal-collapse" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.peakprosperity.com/podcast/98435/ferfal-understanding-societal-collapse#comments Podcast Argentina Brazil Collapse crisis emergency preparedness Hugo Chavez hyperinflation Venezuela http://www.peakprosperity.com/crss/node/98435 Sun, 22 May 2016 17:18:36 +0000 Adam Taggart 98435 at http://www.peakprosperity.com Dave Janda: Bad Medicine http://www.peakprosperity.com/podcast/98318/dave-janda-bad-medicine ]]><p>In our ongoing discussion of how our Health Care system (or more aptly-named &quot;Sick Care&quot; system) has&nbsp;<a href="http://www.peakprosperity.com/blog/98031/why-were-so-unhealthy" target="_blank">been hijacked by those who profit most</a>&nbsp;from it, we interview Dr. Dave&nbsp;Janda&nbsp;this week, who recently and very publicly announced he was walking away from his clinical practice in protest of how poorly the quality-to-cost ratio has dropped in his profession.</p> <p>Dr.&nbsp;Janda&#39;s&nbsp;perspective is informed not just from his years as a practicing surgeon and researcher, but also through his involvement with health initiatives for the Reagan and Bush I administrations, as well as the National Institute of Health. His overall conclusion is that the health system now exists to serves its corporate and administrative owners, to the detriment of patients and practitioners.</p> <p><a href="http://www.peakprosperity.com/podcast/98318/dave-janda-bad-medicine" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.peakprosperity.com/podcast/98318/dave-janda-bad-medicine#comments Podcast Affordable Health Care Act big pharma Dave Janda doctor health care Insurance Medicine obamacare http://www.peakprosperity.com/crss/node/98318 Sun, 15 May 2016 18:57:13 +0000 Adam Taggart 98318 at http://www.peakprosperity.com M.

King&nbsp;Hubbert&nbsp;did more to raise awareness of the finite nature of global oil reserves than any other person, living or dead. He was a larger-than-life figure, who fought tirelessly to insert the limits of nature into the national dialog regarding the strategic use of resources.
