But it&#39;s making little difference to the greater water scarcity issues the US as well as the rest of the world is increasingly facing.</p> <p>Here to talk about the state of the world situation for fresh water -- arguably the single most important resource to humans on the planet, next to oxygen -- is Sandra&nbsp;Postel, Director of the&nbsp;<a href="http://www.globalwaterpolicy.org/" target="_blank">Global Water Policy Project</a>, author, lecturer, and former National Geographic Fellow. The punch-line to her message: as more and more demands are placed on our finite freshwater supply by human consumption and climate change, intelligent conservation is now an absolute must.</p> <p><a href="http://www.peakprosperity.com/podcast/96676/sandra-postel-repairing-water-cycle" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.peakprosperity.com/podcast/96676/sandra-postel-repairing-water-cycle#comments Podcast Conservation Drought el nino Sandra Postel water http://www.peakprosperity.com/crss/node/96676 Sun, 07 Feb 2016 01:13:37 +0000 Adam Taggart 96676 at http://www.peakprosperity.com Jack Spirko: The Road To Resilience http://www.peakprosperity.com/podcast/96563/jack-spirko-road-resilience ]]><p>Continuing our focus on solutions, this week we&#39;re joined on the podcast by Jack&nbsp;Spirko.

We have had them on our podcast periodically over the past years as the market churned to ever new highs, and have always appreciated their skepticism of these liquidity-driven &quot;&quot;markets&quot;&quot; as well as their unwavering&nbsp;<a href="http://www.peakprosperity.com/podcast/87334/new-harbor-hedging-101" target="_blank">commitment to risk management</a>&nbsp;should the party in stocks end suddenly.</p> <p>So, how is their risk-managed approach faring now that the S&amp;P 500 has suddenly dropped 8% since Christmas? Quite well. Their general portfolio is flat for the year so far -- evidence that caution, prudence and hedging can indeed preserve capital during market&nbsp;downdrafts.</p> <p>We&#39;ve invited the New Harbor team back on this week to hear their latest assessment on the markets, as well as how they&#39;re approaching their portfolio positioning moving forward.</p> <p><a href="http://www.peakprosperity.com/podcast/96443/new-harbor-time-staying-out-harms-way" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.peakprosperity.com/podcast/96443/new-harbor-time-staying-out-harms-way#comments Podcast capital central banks commodities Featured Voices Fed Federal Reserve finance gold hedging investing market correction market crash Markets money New Harbor Financial portfolio S&P 500 stock market stocks http://www.peakprosperity.com/crss/node/96443 Sun, 24 Jan 2016 17:16:39 +0000 Adam Taggart 96443 at http://www.peakprosperity.com David Morgan: We Are On The Precipice http://www.peakprosperity.com/podcast/96330/david-morgan-we-precipice ]]><p>Precious metals guru David Morgan returns to address the great threat to the global financial/monetary system from derivative risk.</p> <p>He sees the world at an unprecedented moment in history where the interconnected nature of the global economy makes all players vulnerable to the mind-boggling volume of outstanding derivatives, which makes the sum of all world equity + debt look tiny in comparison (if you haven&#39;t seen it yet, look at this visual from&nbsp;<a href="http://money.visualcapitalist.com/all-of-the-worlds-money-and-markets-in-one-visualization/" target="_blank">The Money Project</a>).</p> <div>&nbsp;</div> <blockquote><p>&nbsp;</p></blockquote> <p><a href="http://www.peakprosperity.com/podcast/96330/david-morgan-we-precipice" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.peakprosperity.com/podcast/96330/david-morgan-we-precipice#comments Podcast David Morgan podcast silver http://www.peakprosperity.com/crss/node/96330 Wed, 20 Jan 2016 01:04:38 +0000 Adam Taggart 96330 at http://www.peakprosperity.com Arthur Berman: Why The Price Of Oil Must Rise http://www.peakprosperity.com/podcast/96095/arthur-berman-why-price-oil-must-rise ]]><p>Geologist Arthur Berman explains why today&#39;s low oil prices are not here to stay, something investors and consumers alike should be very aware of. The crazy-low prices we&#39;re currently experiencing are due to an oversupply created by geopolitics and (historic) easy credit, not by sustainable economics.</p> <p>And when the worm turns, we are more likely than not to experience a sudden supply shortfall, jolting prices viciously higher. This will be a situation not soon resolved, as the lag time for new production to come on-line will be much longer than the world wants.</p> <p><a href="http://www.peakprosperity.com/podcast/96095/arthur-berman-why-price-oil-must-rise" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.peakprosperity.com/podcast/96095/arthur-berman-why-price-oil-must-rise#comments Podcast Arthur Berman Bakken Eagleford oil OPEC peak oil Permian Basin saudi arabia shale http://www.peakprosperity.com/crss/node/96095 Sun, 10 Jan 2016 21:09:33 +0000 Adam Taggart 96095 at http://www.peakprosperity.com Gail Tverberg: Something Has Got To Break http://www.peakprosperity.com/podcast/96091/gail-tverberg-something-has-got-break ]]><p>Actuary Gail&nbsp;Tverberg&nbsp;explains the tight correlation between the rates of GDP growth and growth in energy supply.
