    2020 has proven to be a year unlike any other. It has shaken our confidence in our economic, financial, political and social systems — proving them to be a lot less stable than we’d previously assumed.

    Gold’s re-pricing is reflecting that realization. The big question is: How much more uncertainty remains ahead?

    Off The Cuff: Capitalism Is Gone

    And what's replaced it sure as heck isn't working well for the bottom 99% of us

    In this week’s Off The Cuff podcast, Chris and Wolf Richter discuss:

    • We no longer have capitalism — it’s gone
    • The national housing market is weakening
    • The jobs market is worse than the BLS is reporting
    • This is the most challenging time ever for investors

    In an important, somber conversation, Chris and Wolf discuss the challenging times facing society today. Capitalism as we knew it for much of the 20th century is no longer; today corporate losses are socialized while gains are privatized for the ruling elites.

    For those looking to simply opt out of the system and protect themselves, it’s more challenging than ever warns Wolf. Especially in regards with how to safeguard your financial wealth:

    Executive Summary

    • Confidence in the US is eroding, and as goes sentiment, as goes stability
    • Expect covid-19 to deliver more nasty surprises
    • Prepare for higher inflation and supply chain breakdowns
    • Joining the PP movement is much better than facing what’s coming alone

    If you have not yet read Part 1: We Are On Our Own In The Post-Covid World, available free to all readers, please click here to read it first.

    The US is deteriorating fast.  It can’t even manage the simplest of tasks: getting sufficient PPE to its front-line health care workers and explaining to its own citizens why wearing masks is in their own individual and collective best interests.

    Will other countries continue to accept the US dollar and trust it as a ‘store of value’?  Increasingly, the answer seems to be “no”:

    This erosion could well turn into a waterfall at some point, especially as the coronavirus continues to throw sand into the gears of the global economy.

    We Are On Our Own In The Post-Covid World

    It's time to be our own heroes, because those in charge sure won't be

    The economic and health consequences of covid-19 are extremely severe.  Expectedly so.  And they are still creating havoc in ways we don’t fully appreciate yet.

    So every day counts now, and all your actions matter.  It’s time to build resilience.  At the household level first, and then within your community.  Deepen your pantry, deepen your friendships, and deepen your soil.

    The more you can rely on yourself and those around you, the better off you’ll be.

    Market Update: Tesla Falters

    Is the market topping out?
    by Adam Taggart

    Friday, July 24, 2020, 12:17 PM

    15

    All of a sudden, the lead stock of the current massive market rally, Tesla (TSLA), is faltering — down nearly $250/share (14.3%) since yesterday’s open.

    This is important because Tesla embodies the faith, optimism and exuberance that has been required by investors to support stock prices up at their current levels — which by nearly every conventional measure, are now more overvalued than at any prior time in history.

    Covid-19 Is So Hard To Defeat Because It’s So Alien To Us

    It's so novel that we don't have a good natural analog to compare it to

    Covid-19 is one of the most “alien” viruses our modern health care system has encountered.

    Not because it came from extraterrestrials, but because of all of the various different ways it’s able to wreak havoc on the human body. It’s so novel that we don’t have a good natural analog to compare it to.

    Ever since the outbreak of covid-19 we’ve wondered why the virus hits some people like a ton of bricks while barely inconveniencing others.

    Now we think we have a clue.

    New data suggests that the specific types of T-cells you have in your immune system determine how severely your body will react to the coronavirus upon infection.
