Upon The Next Crisis, The Rules Will Suddenly Change

For the benefit of the elites; not the rest of us
Friday, September 29, 2017, 7:02 PM

We can add a third certainty to the two standard ones (death and taxes): The rules will suddenly change when a financial crisis strikes.

Why is this a certainty? Human nature, politics and the structure of societies/economies ruled by centralized states (governments). » Read more

What Really Matters

A reality-check on what's truly important in life
Wednesday, September 27, 2017, 3:06 PM

Here at PeakProsperity.com, we devote a lot of focus to building wealth and other forms of "capital". This website has hosted thousands of discussions on how to preserve and increase wealth.

But what's it all for?

Every so often, it's useful to pull waay back to look at the big picture. To re-examine the Why? underlying our plans and aspirations. » Read more

You're Likely A Lot Less Prepared For Crisis Than You Realize

Lessons from the recent rash of natural disasters
Friday, September 22, 2017, 2:25 PM

It seems as if Mother Nature is waking up. Either she's trying to send humans an important warning, or perhaps she's just out to kill us all.

Massive storms across the globe, earthquakes, and collapsing ecosystems all combine to remind us that we are indeed intimately connected to our planet's natural systems. And that our well-being rests on staying on Mother Nature's good side.

Well, Mother Nature has seemed pretty pissed at us of late. Her recent punishments should be taken as a disciplinary wake-up call. » Read more

Join Us In New Orleans -- Oct 27th

For a day of deep discussion on the future of the economy
Thursday, September 21, 2017, 1:17 PM

For those who can get themselves to New Orleans next month, I'm arranging a private location where Chris and I will hold an intimate Peak Prosperity summit.

Held from 10am-4pm on Friday, October 27th, we'll focus largely on our forecasts for the economy and the financial markets -- but will have plenty of flexibility to address any other topics and personal questions as prioritized by the attendees. 

While this will be a data-rich day's worth of discussion (charts will be plentiful), we're planning on this being much more of a roundtable group dialog rather than us simply speaking at you for six hours. Our goal is for this experience to be as informative, fun and highly-personal as possible. » Read more

Who’s Going To Eat The Losses?

The only question that matters regarding today's markets
Friday, September 8, 2017, 10:25 PM

Younger generations that are being asked (goaded?) to step into an increasingly flawed future begin to resist. Which is completely understandable. They have nothing to gain if the status quo continues.

At the same time, the older generations mostly just settle into a stubborn insistence that everything will be fine if everyone will just do more of precisely what got us into the mess in the first place. Younger people should step up to make sure Medicare/Social Security/pensions remain fully funded, and buy the financial assets and homes of downsizing seniors at top dollar. The boomers have everything to lose if the status quo changes.

What happens when a culture’s dominant narratives are not just unsatisfactory, but entirely unworkable?  » Read more

Van Halen, M&Ms, And The Next Market Downturn

How watching the right indicators will avoid disaster
Friday, September 1, 2017, 6:28 PM

Believe it or not, the rock band Van Halen found a brilliant way to teach how having good indicators is key to achieving success.

This is extremely true for the world of investing, where you're deploying capital based upon an expected future return. How do you determine when it's a good time to enter into an investment? Once in it, how do monitor the conditions supporting your rationale for holding it -- are those changing? And if so, are they getting better or worse? When should you exit the position?

For all of these questions, the better the indicators you use, the more accurate and informed your decision-making will be. And the better your returns as an investor will be. » Read more

Dangerous Markets Webinar

Featuring Grant Williams & Lance Roberts
Tuesday, August 29, 2017, 1:31 PM

By an increasing number of metrics, today's financial markets are more overvalued than we've ever seen before. The price-to-sales ratio for the S&P 500 has never been this high. The same is true for its price-to-earning-growth ratio. Interest rates have never been this low -- in 5,000 years of human history!

Which is why, via our new webinar platform, we're giving you insider access to two of our favorite world-renowned market experts, Grant Williams and Lance Roberts, who regularly produce some of the most valuable -- and actionable -- analysis and commentary on the financial markets, the global economy, and the future actions of the central banking system.

The event itself will take place on Wednesday, September 13 at noon EST/9am PST. It will last approximately an hour and a half.

The price to participate in this webinar is $25, unless you are an enrolled member of PeakProsperity.com (i.e. paying subscriber with access to our 'Insider' content). In that case, it's FREE» Read more
