    Executive Summary

    • High return-on-investment steps everyone should take
    • Make of yourself a model to inspire others

    I worry that almost nobody is ready for what’s coming.

    Not financially, not psychologically or emotionally. And not with respect to their current lifestyles.

    My decade-plus tracking the data leads me to conclude that:

    • Food insecurity will be part of my future.
    • Energy abundance will diminish over time
    • The financial system has enormous losses baked right in and they cannot be avoided
    • Our local city/town or communities will feel the impacts of the loss of purchasing power coursing through their veins. This ‘simplification’ will be very destructive to those unready or unable to adapt.
    • Either humans voluntarily stop putting too much carbon into the atmosphere or nature will force that outcome under far less favorable terms.
    • Travel will become quite limited and perhaps become an unaffordable luxury within the next couple of decades.

    Do you share these?

    If so, I don’t want to panic you. Quite the opposite. I want you to realize that while these are potential eventualities you can’t control, you can do plenty about how they’ll impact you.

    These are the smart responses virtually anyone can take that will offer you tremendous advantage against…. (Enroll now to continue reading)

    Save The World By First Saving Yourself

    We each have a role to play in how the world recovers from the coming crisis

    Yes, the world is busy collapsing around us. That’s true.

    But collapse is a process, not an event. It can be ameliorated and even reversed, depending on the actions we decide to take from here.

    And there’s still time left to change our fate.  Not much, mind you. But enough to matter.

    Gold Signaling Crisis

    Both Gold And Copper Warn: “Crisis!”

    Is a Comex failure coming?

    Gold has spiked higher in the overnight markets, now above $1535.  Copper continues to weaken.  That combination says that gold is not sniffing out an inflationary burst from some future burst of economic growth. If that were the case, copper wouldn’t be tanking here. Take a peek at these two charts. Let’s your eyes wander…

    Defending Against The Global Currency Crisis

    What to plan for as the printing presses resume at full speed
    by Chris Martenson

    35

    Executive Summary

    • The perverted bond market (nearly $20 trillion in negative yielding debt) is signalling an epic coming crisis
    • A painful global recession is increasingly guaranteed in the coming 12 months. But that’s not the largest risk…
    • A massive global currency crisis is brewing. One that could very well topple a number of today’s nations.
    • Why hard assets offer one of the best defenses against how all this will unfold

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

    The larger part of this story concerns the effects that excessive financialization has had on the globalization of markets.

    One very large part of this has involved the explosion of carry trades — i.e., borrowing in one place to invest in another.

    An example would be borrowing US dollars to buy New Zealand government bonds. The “carry” part of that trade is that borrowing in US dollars might cost you 2% per year, but New Zealand bonds are paying out 5% — providing you with a 3% ‘carry.’ Lever that up, and do that trade all day long, with as much volume as your lenders will allow.

    In the past, it made a lot of sense for a Japanese pension fund to sell its yen (where the local 10-yr government bond is sporting a negative yield) and buy euros to plow into Italian 10-year debt which has a positive yield. Easy money, right?

    Well, it’s all fun and games until you get clocked by a currency reset that wipes out all your positive carry.

    The trend up until now has been one of increasingly large bets denominated in US dollars spread out all over the globe.

    But the hugely concerning warning sign of a massive reset is now flashing, and it’s…   (Enroll now to continue reading)

    Remember in 1Q19 when Apple’s earnings came in a bit low and the Yen/NZ dollar pair blew out as a result? Remember in August 2015 when China surprised the world with a -3% yuan devaluation and ““markets”” across the globe were rattled?

    Well, it has happened again.

    The Antidote To This Insanity

    Taking your destiny into your own hands through direct action
    by Chris Martenson

    Executive Summary

    • Our complex economy is poised for a forced, painful simplification
    • The urgency to prepare for this inevitable Tipping Point
    • The actions I’m taking right now in my own life to prepare for this

    If you have not yet read Part 1: Overdosing On Crazy Pills, available free to all readers, please click here to read it first.

    In the coming years and decades there will be hell to pay for society failing to properly assess the risks and re-align its priorities and activities accordingly.

    Collectively, our human nature is sabotaging us.  That’s my conclusion after exploring the biological underpinnings, as well as the limitations and realities, of our genetic programming.

    Since humans are wired for optimism, and strongly discount the future for the present, then short-term decision making is what we’ll get.

    Unfortunately, we need long-term decision making.  But because that’s currently ‘out of stock’ in today’s society, you need to do what you can at your own personal level.

    As I am fond of saying, when it comes to decision-making, I have great faith in individuals but almost no faith in groups.

    People, I trust.  Groups, not so much.

    The larger the group involved, the more suspect it becomes.  I’ll bet the founders of Google had the best of ‘non-evil’ intentions when they began.  But now the behemoth is busy spying for the government, helping to weaken and overthrow various foreign governments that are unfriendly to western business interests, and helping to rig domestic elections.

    Two guys doing pretty good.  Big giant powerful company becomes evil.  Stop me if you’ve heard that one before…

    So the following steps — which I’m taking myself —  are critical to…   (Enroll to keep reading)

    Gold And Silver Are In A New Bull Market

    The regular assaults designed to keep prices suppressed are starting to fail
    by Chris Martenson

    What makes me want to call the new bull market for gold and silver right now?

    One of the things that I look for is a failure of the past criminality to work anymore. Which is why I keep a keen eye out for failures of bear raids in the thinly-traded overnight markets.

    And I’m now starting to see evidence of this.

    The Choice Facing Us: Greatness or Oblivion?

    Either option is still within our grasp. Will we pursue the right one?

    Executive Summary

    • The Earth will be fine. But humans?
    • We can break free from our biological programming. But it will take conscious effort.
    • How to shift your personal destiny
    • Want to work with a dedicated group on shifting yours? Stay tuned…

    If you have not yet read Part 1: Do You Truly Have Free Will?, available free to all readers, please click here to read it first.

    I don’t need to pull any punches here among Peak Prosperity’s paid subscribers; as you all know this well: humans are at a very dangerous juncture of history.

    We might decide to be smart and create a brilliant future for ourselves. But the current odds favor our species defaulting into oblivion.

    The Earth won’t care. It’s got an entire museum warehouse filled with failed species, all for one reason or another.  Evolution is busy solving the most complex of problems, and failure is one of its most commonly employed tools.

    But even if the Earth won’t miss us, as a resident of it with the capacity to operate consciously, I happen to care a lot about the human experiment and that it carries on. I trust you do as well.

    In the end, the Earth will be fine.  I am certain of that.  Humans?  Maybe not so much.

    If we’re going to shift our collective destiny, we first have to shift our own personal destiny, and that means being aware of the true complexity of the (brain) systems involved and then using the best and most powerful tools and techniques we can bring to bear.

    The good news is that we now have…(enroll to keep reading)
