Missed 'The End of Money' Webinar?

Not to worry. You can purchase a video of the full event.
Wednesday, June 14, 2017, 12:35 AM

Last week, we produced our first "big" event on our new webinar platform.

Our 3-hour The End Of Money webinar brought together -- David Stockman, Axel Merk, and G. Edward Griffin -- several of the world's top experts on the central banking system, world currencies and financial markets.

Moderated by Chris, each speaker shared his latest thoughts on our current economic situation (spoiler alert: they're each very worried), as well as his predictions on what the central banks are most likely to do next -- and what the implications will be.

David Stockman expressed concern that the central banks are very unlikely to be able to inject emergency liquidity to "rescue" the markets the next time a major downturn threatens:

While Axel Merk, fresh from an event where he mingled with past and current Federal Reserve presidents, shared his observation that the Fed is essentially flying blind at this point:

G. Edward Griffin delivered a sober warning, urging us not to underestimate how ruthless the central banks are in sacrificing the public good in order to advance their own agenda:

Chris then presented on his own forecast, followed by an active discussion with New Harbor Financial (Peak Prosperity's endorsed financial advisor) as to strategies for preserving one's financial wealth during today's uncertain times.

Feedback from the webinar was nicely positive. Here's some of the feedback received from participants:

"I am inspired and in awe how the speakers effectively take massive macro subject areas and break them down and put into context so those of us not as plugged into the topic can understand"

"Great info. Looking forward to the next one. "

"Chris Martenson is one of the best communicators in the modern world of finance.  As a moderator he can quickly drill down to the most pressing questions people have with often the smartest minds in the business."

"Loved the advice at the end."

"The ability to ask questions to some of the most brilliant minds regarding such topics was worth the price of admission alone! "

Good News

So, if you didn't register earlier for the live webinar and are regretting having missed out on the event (and a number of you have already contacted us) -- there's good news.

We're making a video of the full 3-hour event available for purchase for $75.

You'll be able to watch the speaker presentations in their entirety, as well as Chris' synopsis of our current situation, and the lengthy Q&A with New Harbor.

If that's of interest to you, please make a 1-time purchase of $75 by clicking on the blue button below. When we receive your payment, we'll email you direct access to the webinar video.

Beginning of New money?

Hi Chris/Adam,

Will look at the clips.  How much does it cover the likely new money paradigm?

ie selected Crypto / Blockchain currencies?

How will this new technology & alternative method of conducting transactions affect PMs?

Mark Rees could be worth a podcast...

Cheers

NL

To pay or not to pay....

Ok you got me….I didn't sign up.  I pay for a subscription and assumed it would be available later. Clearly I missed the multiple warnings that failing to sign up would cost me another $75 if I wanted to see the information.  Honestly, is another $75 going to kill me…no.  However I doubt my lousy $75 is the windfall you’ve been working for all these years.    

At the end of the day it’s only 75 bucks and my job as a husband and father is to protect and provide for my family, so I’m giving you the extra $75.  Only time will tell if you realized a gain here or ultimately suffered a net loss with this transaction.

Well the webinar does sound

Well the webinar does sound interesting and I will ultimately purchase it when my husband and I can sit down together and watch it.  It will be an expense of an evening together, a date night, I hope there is some humor.

Still I have to grumble.  Every time I go to the polls to vote on a Bond, for example a new roof for a school, road repairs, trail re-paving or enhancements to some technological system I vote "NO".  Because who pays for our local Bonds?  The property owner.  Yep everything is going up, property taxes, food, utilities and definitely insurance.  Mr. and Mrs. Middle America is being financially bled to death, exsanguinated!  Probably not the well-to-do members here but a whole cohort like me.  It seems like it takes one full paycheck to pay just for taxes and insurance.

My thought is to drop the yearly membership to PP and go to a month to month so if you are going to be having more expensive webinars we can budget those into our yearly finances.  $75 is probably pocket change for you all but it's painful for some of us and though I may be the lone grumbler I am certain I am not the only one thinking it.

A little clarification

Granny et al -

Thanks for giving us the opportunity to clarify our vision for this new webinar capability.

Our programming plan for the future is still being fleshed out, so this is subject to change, but we see PP.com being able to offer the following types of webinars going forward:

  • "Tentpole" events with a big theme and top expert guest speakers, like this recent The End Of Money webinar. These are costly to produce and take a lot of work. We hope to be able to produce 4 per year (roughly once a quarter). These will be pay-for events, and anyone who pays will get access.
  • Subscriber events which will focus on topics of special interest to the PP audience. These will be free to all those with a premium PP.com enrollment. We're also investigating producing a monthly "ask anything" Q&A series, where enrollees can pose any questions they like to Chris and me.
  • Public events which will be free to all. Timing TBD, but likely once a quarter or so.

If you're deciding between maintaining a PP.com subscription or attending the tentpole webinars, obviously go with whichever strikes you as more valuable . But my personal advice would be to choose the subscription, as you'll get much more content (articles, podcasts, subscriber webinars, etc). The tentpole events should be super-valuable if we do our job right, but I'm not sure I'd sacrifice the insights, frequency and early-warning value of a PP subscription for them.

One More Comment

Thanks for the clarification Adam, your right I don't think I want to sacrifice the insights, frequency or early warning value of the subscription.  I  will just have to schedule a date night to watch your Webinar.

I do have one more comment though.

It appears that the Webinar was meant for well-to-do, academic, highly educated, folk very versed in financial jargon and data thus the title "The End of Money".  Your see we in the Middle Class, Lower Middle Class and Just Plain Broke Class are already EXPERTS in "The End of Money".  Our paychecks run out before the end of the month, week or even at the grocery store check-out before all the items in the cart are scanned we are often in the red.  If you want to reach a really, really large audience like Middle America here is the title you need.

Tourniquet Tips for Mom & Pop - The How and Why YOU are being financially exsanguinated and tips to survive!!  Hey I want to survive, I am one of the millions of Americans hemorrhaging money and just maybe I can learn something.  This versus some really smart, rich guys telling us about when the money runs out.  See my point.  I would say sell the sizzle not the steak but hotdogs were substituted for steak a few years ago.

Love The Feedback

Granny -

I may just have to enlist your copywriting services when I pull together the marketing collateral for the next webinar!

I get it, and appreciate your feedback.

You're actually beating me to the punch again, as I'm currently working on a few surveys we'll soon be posting on the site to try to get as accurate a read as possible into the topics our audience would most like to see addressed in upcoming webinars.

Stay tuned. Should only be a matter of days.

cheers,

A

Blockchains

Adam,

Slightly surprised that my first post wasn't answered, so I'll guess it wasn't discussed in the webinar.

Given your internet background, how much do you know about the potential for the Blockchain technologies that are set to disrupt money and society as we know it?

The Bitcoin and Blockchain discussion groups here on PP are proving popular, I think a detailed analysis on them and how they will influence traditional currencies & PMs would be of wide interest.  Mark Rees seems a great asset to have on this subject and has been freely contributing on PP.

Chris is a master of making the complex understandable, if this is the time to buy into a new global decentralised monetary system, we should definitely be debating it.

It could have have a huge impact on those with savings of government issued paper currency, those in debt and those like Granny, just about managing to make ends meet. (JAMS)

Look forward to seeing the survey.

Cheers

NL :-)

Old money vs New Money

The possible future of money is being discussed here on PP by contributors that I equally respect and appreciate their efforts, we should be debating this as scientists, Chris & Adam, please join in.
