    Ben Hunt — highly respected fund manager, author, and former professor/entrepreneur/venture capitalist — says that to be successful in managing your wealth, there’s only one question that matters:

    Are we entering a deflationary future, or an inflationary one?

    The strategies and appropriate investment targets for each are extremely different, so you’d better answer correctly.

    Off The Cuff: Media Censorship & Misinformation

    Our access to facts is under siege from all directions
    by Adam Taggart

    Wednesday, October 21, 2020, 3:02 PM

    In this week’s Off The Cuff podcast, Chris and John Rubino discuss:

    • Media misinformation is rampant now
    • Disgruntled people are migrating to independent sources
    • Ideological influence and financial inequality are making us a more divided society than ever
    • What will the post-election future look like?

    This discussion is extremely relevant in the current moment of censorship accusations swirling in the media, as major publications like the New York Post clash with Twitter and Facebook over which news is fit to print. Access to a thriving free press is Amendment 1 of the Bill of Rights, and for a very good reason — it’s a cornerstone of liberty. Though that feels very much in jeopardy these days.

    If we can’t agree on the facts, how can we intelligently work through our differences? How can we govern ourselves fairly and objectively in such a world?

    The Illusion Is Failing

    Trust in the system is vanishing fast

    The more we continue to pursue the status quo in hopes that things will magically turns themselves around, the more we waste valuable time and resources.

    Building A Better Plan

    Our leaders have no Plan B, so we need to each create our own
    by Chris Martenson

    Friday, October 16, 2020, 8:11 PM

    Executive Summary

    • Whether incompetent or malicious, our leaders are failing us
    • The “Great Reset”: the plan the Davos crowd has for us
    • The need for a plan of our own
    • What the wisdom of past regenerative cultures has to teach us

    If you have not yet read Part 1: The Illusion Is Failing, available free to all readers, please click here to read it first.

    Increasingly it’s difficult to see what the plans of the various world authorities might be.  It’s either one based on staggering incompetence (always possible), or it’s a far darker plan — but neither will have our best interests at heart.

    And from my view, it’s increasingly difficult to assign the whole mess to simple incompetence.

    There’s a plan afoot to create fear, uncertainty and doubt .

    Why does this plan exist?  Can we explain it?  Certainly not on humane terms.

    Have you heard of The Great Reset plan yet being pushed by The World Economic Forum (i.e., “the Davos crowd”). It greatly concerns me because…

    With tens of millions of households having lost their income this year, personal savings becoming exhausted, government support programs on their way to drying up, and lots more company layoffs/bankruptcies/closures ahead — economist Steve Keen expects a punishing recession to arrive in full force in 2021.

    Censorship Is Out Of Control!

    And it's making things worse
    by Chris Martenson

    The social atmosphere in the US is increasing bitter and divided.  Tempers are fraying, and many are wondering what to do. Social media – which I am increasingly going to be calling anti-social media for a host of reasons – is a major cause of those divisions. Rightfully, social media has concluded that its own…

    The Price Of A Good Idea

    Few things are more valuable than wisdom
    by Adam Taggart

    Friday, October 9, 2020, 9:00 PM

    What is the price of a good idea?

    Think back on some of the most useful lessons learned over the course of your life. Maybe it was an insight into how to invest smarter. Or how to leverage a key ability of yours better at work. Or a technique for improving your relationships with the important people in your life. Or how to be more effective at managing your valuable time.

    Now, if you could magically teach your past self that lesson a decade or two (or three!) sooner in life, how much would you pay for that chance, knowing how valuable that insight will be to the younger you?

    Thousands of dollars? Hundreds of thousands? Millions?

    Finally explained in plain English by a respected crypto expert
    by Adam Taggart

    Whether you understand it or not, Bitcoin and other ‘distributed ledger’ technologies are spreading at an accelerating rate across the world.

    Odds are very high they will disrupt and transform nearly every business model in today’s economy, much in the same way the advent of the Internet did.

    But most people are still unfamiliar with this new technology, and concerned that their lack of understanding may leave them obsolete dinosaurs in the coming future should crypto indeed change the nature of money and commerce.

    This is why we’ve brought on this week’s guest expert, Alex Saunders, respected Bitcoin/blockchain/crypto maven to demystify the topic and explain it all to us in plain layman’s English.

    Off The Cuff: Re-Localization Is The Future

    The question is: how to do we pursue it gracefully?
    by Adam Taggart

    Tuesday, October 6, 2020, 9:13 AM

    In this week’s Off The Cuff podcast, Chris and James Howard Kunstler discuss:

    • The sorry state of the US political system
    • From Covid to Epstein: can our “leaders” bungle even worse?
    • Why Re-localization is the answer, whether we want it or not
    • Why we’re never returning to “normal” as we knew it

    Jim Kunstler returns to the program to report the latest view through is “Long Emergency” lens.

    It’s a little scary: many of the trends he’s long been predicting have been suddenly accelerated by the events of 2020. Particularly his warnings that our urban & suburban lifestyle of mega-marts, McMansions and food deserts were going to start failing us, resulting in flight to rural areas.

    As Jim explains here, re-localization of our economy and social networks is going to be the way of the future — whether we choose it, or reality forces it upon us.

    The Approaching Frenzy Of Tipping Points

    As the future gets disrupted, how will you fare?
    by Chris Martenson

    Friday, October 2, 2020, 7:55 PM

    Executive Summary

    • The approaching frenzy of tipping points
    • Why collapse is already in progress
    • Choosing emergence-y over emergency
    • My personal plan

    If you have not yet read Part 1: Welcome To Easter Island, available free to all readers, please click here to read it first.

    A tipping point is a critical moment in time when the old gives way to the new — suddenly and irreversibly.

    This is where we are – when the old is breaking down, in an uncomfortable interregnum, to be followed by something completely new that is simply waiting to be brought to light.

    Seen this way, this is an exciting time to be alive. At least that’s the way I see it.

    So what’s coming next? And what steps should we be taking today to meet it?

    In my opinion, the most important action to take now is…
