Banks Are Evil

It's time to get painfully honest about this
Friday, March 17, 2017, 8:05 PM

I don't talk to my classmates from business school anymore, many of whom went to work in the financial industry.

Why?

Because, through the lens we use here at PeakProsperity.com to look at the world, I've increasingly come to see the financial industry -- with the big banks at its core -- as the root cause of injustice in today's society. I can no longer separate any personal affections I might have for my fellow alumni from the evil that their companies perpetrate.

And I'm choosing that word deliberately: Evil. » Read more

How Rich Is Your Knowledge Capital?

The future will belong to those who know how to create value
Thursday, March 16, 2017, 9:36 AM

The best way to defend yourself against the risk of 'losing it all' is to have an important part of your wealth stored between your ears, where it can't be taken from you.

If bad fortune should intervene and you lose your financial wealth, or you need to move away from your current community and start all over again, you'll be able to build a future if you have valuable skills, knowledge and expertise to rely on.

This will be especially true if the future unfolds the way we expect, where declining energy yields and economic stagnation sentence us to doing less. In such a world, a much higher premium will be placed on those individuals who know how to create value. Who know how to get things done.  » Read more

When This All Blows Up...

Understanding the how & when of the next economic crash
Saturday, March 11, 2017, 1:01 AM

This report marks the end of a series of three big trains of thought. The first explained how we’re living through the Mother Of All Financial Bubbles. The next detailed the Great Wealth Transfer that is now underway, siphoning our wealth into the pockets of an elite few.

This concluding report predicts how these deleterious and unsustainable trends will inevitably ‘resolve’ (which is a pleasant way of saying ‘blow up’.) » Read more

If you're still making up your mind whether or not to attend this year, perhaps you're wondering what to expect to get out of the weekend.

Well, here's a write-up from someone who has attended in the past. Full disclosure: he's probably a pretty biased source -- as he's my brother. » Read more

It’s Bubble Time!

Wisdom & discipline will separate winners from victims
Thursday, February 23, 2017, 5:50 PM

It's impossible to predict with certainty how much more insane our financial markets will get before an inevitable correction, but my personal bet is “a lot!”

For my reasons why, take a few minutes to watch the chapter on bubbles below from The Crash Course. For those who haven't seen it before, the takeaway is this: bubbles pop only when greed in the market has been exhausted. » Read more

The Mother Of All Financial Bubbles

Will be unimaginably destructive when it bursts
Wednesday, February 22, 2017, 11:45 PM

The main lesson from Oroville -- or Fukushima, or Katrina --  is that governments do a poor job of relating accurate information to their citizens when big threats are involved. Part of that is likely due to a desire to avoid stoking fear. Part probably due to politics and bureaucracy. And part probably due to plain old incompetence.

Regardless of the cause, it means that the public -- even the vigilant ones -- suffer information deficits when it matters most. Simply put, the authorities do not share all the facts necessary for making informed decisions.

Which brings us to one of the truly great risks we're facing today. One with much more destructive potential than a single failed dam but, like Oroville, one the authorities are desperate to keep us in the dark about. » Read more

The Peak Prosperity Annual Weekend Seminar: Apr 6-9

2017 may be our last year to prepare before crisis
Wednesday, February 15, 2017, 10:40 PM

Humanity is entering an era it has never lived through before: accelerating global change up the steepening portion of the exponential curve. This is the part in the story when events speed up dramatically. And actions matter -- a lot.

Can anyone do anything about this? Wait, let me be more specific: Can you do anything about this?

Yes!  » Read more

Oroville Dam Threatens To Collapse

Short-term thinking has put lives at risk
Monday, February 13, 2017, 8:51 AM

This is a running commentary on the rapidly developing Oroville dam situation. Because the story developed so rapidly, there wasn’t time to write a complete report.

I’ll have a tidy summary at some point, but first we have to scour and assemble the information. » Read more
