    How Will The Coronavirus Impact The Markets?

    It's a true Black Swan event that stocks haven't yet priced in

    In addition to presenting a major public health risk, the coronavirus is already doing serious economic damage. China, the world’s second-largest economy, is essentially “closed for business” right now.

    The disruption to global trade the coronavirus is likely to cause is going to be material, perhaps severe. And that will have serious negative consequences for the financial markets, which have been (and is still!) trading at the highest valuations in history.

    The coronavirus has all the hallmarks of a true Black Swan event.

    The Coronavirus Is Now An Actual Pandemic

    Yet the media remains criminally silent about it

    While you wouldn’t know it by listening to the major media outlets, the spread of the Wuhan coronavirus continues to get worse. As does our understanding of its potential threat to the public health.

    At this point, we have to be honest with ourselves: We are dealing with a true pandemic at this point

    VIDEO: Challenging The Chinese Coronavirus Data

    It's likely much worse than what's being reported

    Pretty much the entire country of China is in lockdown at this moment. Unbelievable.

    Along with restricting travel within and across its borders, the Chinese government has begun heavily censoring the data its sharing with the world.

    Chris calls into question the few statistics they’re currently reporting, suspecting the situation is devolving into something much worse than admitted to.

    How Contagious Is The Coronavirus?

    The latest data points to "very"

    Whether it’s 3.8 or 2.5 or 6.7, the R0 for 2019-ncov is sufficient to cause a pandemic.  It spreads easily.

    My current opinion, which I reserve the right to change when better data comes in, is that the current R0 estimate of 2.5 is too low because of its reliance on officially-reported case data.

    My advice to you is to begin practicing good hygiene right now.  Your best defense against this virus is to not catch it in the first place.

    VIDEO: The Risk Of A True Pandemic Is Higher Than We’re Being Told

    Exactly what's going on & how worried should we be?

    What exactly is the ‘coronavirus’?

    How worried do we need to be?

    Given the poor communication so far by government health organizations and the media, the severity of the situation and the risk to public health, Chris Martenson filmed this important explanatory video hours ago.

    In it, Chris explains the virus in layman’s terms, why the contagion we’re seeing is likely to spread substantially from here, and why the actions being taken so far by public health officials to contain the threat are woefully insufficient.

    The coronavirus is currently sweeping across China. So far, it has all the hallmarks of a potential true pandemic outbreak.

    While it could still (and hopefully will) be contained and burn itself out, the chances of that are slipping by the hour.

    If an actual pandemic breaks out, expect the following to happen quickly…

    VIDEO: The Fed’s Evil Juggernaut

    Don't let it crush your future

    The US Federal Reserve is once again force-feeding liquidity into the system. At its fastest rate ever.

    The result? Record high stock prices whose valuations defy all logic.

    What’s wrong with that? Shouldn’t we just enjoy the party and be grateful for our rising 401ks?

    What’s wrong is that the Fed’s actions are dooming us. Their poisonous cocktail of endless cheap money and rock-bottom interest rates is hastening a terminal breakdown of the economy, while deliberately enriching a tiny cadre of elites to the ruin of everyone else.

    One of the most frequent questions we get from people working to become more resilient is: Is there a better place I should move to?

    Answering this question isn’t simple.

    In the trailer for our recent (and excellent) webinar WTF: What The Fed?!?, I ask: What’s it going to take for the pitchforks to come out? How much more does the common man need to be abused before he wakes up and says ‘I’m not going to take anymore!’? As discussed in detail in the…

    Nothing seems right anymore.

    In whichever direction we choose to look, things are unraveling at a quickening pace.

    Welcome to the Fourth Turning; and with it, a profound loss of trust in institutions and government.
