Pretty much all the benefits of the recent years of money printing have gone to the upper echelons, with the true engines of growth and jobs -- small to medium sized enterprises (SMEs) -- getting very little.</p> <p>As a result, financial asset prices have been driven up too high, which Steen anticipates will correct at some point in 2014; likely by 30% or so.</p> <p><a href="http://www.peakprosperity.com/podcast/85680/steen-jakobsen-expect-30-stock-market-correction-2014" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.peakprosperity.com/podcast/85680/steen-jakobsen-expect-30-stock-market-correction-2014#comments Podcast bonds central banks ECB Europe fixed income growth jobs market correction Markets Saxo Bank SME Steen Jakobsen stocks http://www.peakprosperity.com/crss/node/85680 Sun, 01 Jun 2014 21:25:25 +0000 Adam Taggart 85680 at http://www.peakprosperity.com Ethan Roland: The 8 Forms of Capital http://www.peakprosperity.com/podcast/85573/ethan-roland-8-forms-capital ]]><p>Building on top of last week&#39;s foundational discussion of&nbsp;permaculture, this week&#39;s podcast explores how the&nbsp;permaculture&nbsp;approach can be applied to creating value -- aka, capital -- across the full spectrum of our lives.</p> <p>Chris sits down with Ethan Roland to discuss the &quot;Eight Forms of Capital&quot; framework he and his partners at <a href="http://appleseedpermaculture.com/8-forms-of-capital/" target="_blank">Appleseed&nbsp;Permaculture</a>&nbsp;have developed:</p> <p><a href="http://www.peakprosperity.com/podcast/85573/ethan-roland-8-forms-capital" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.peakprosperity.com/podcast/85573/ethan-roland-8-forms-capital#comments Podcast 8 Forms capital Ethan Roland Permaculture http://www.peakprosperity.com/crss/node/85573 Sun, 25 May 2014 20:25:57 +0000 Adam Taggart 85573 at http://www.peakprosperity.com
