Friday, February 23, 2018, 6:03 PM

Most everyone is familiar with the basic forms of insurance: homeowners/renters, auto, life and health. But I want to highlight a specific type of liability insurance that is curiously under-owned.

Excess liability insurance -- more commonly referred to as "umbrella" insurance -- extends the liability protection of your home & auto insurance policies, often by a lot. » Read more

The Worst Threat We Face Is Right Here At Home

The Federal Reserve is ruining us
Friday, February 16, 2018, 7:58 PM

The Federal Reserve has done far more self-inflicted harm to long-term US interests than anything that Russia has been accused of, let alone been proven to have done. At this point, there’s no contest between the two. 

The worst threats we face are right here at home. » Read more

Red Screen At Morning, Investor Take Warning

It's time for safety. And it's beginning to pay better, too
Friday, February 9, 2018, 8:12 PM

Growing up as I did in coastal New England, this old rhyme was drilled into us as children:

Red sky at night, sailor's delight;

Red sky at morning, sailor take warning.

I'm reminded of this rhyme because the markets are giving us a clear "red sky" warning right now. One that comes after (too) many years of uninterrupted fair winds and smooth sailing.

It's Looking A Lot Like 2008 Now...

Did today's market plunge mark the start of the next crash?
Friday, February 2, 2018, 8:57 PM

Economic and market conditions are eerily like they were in late 2007/early 2008.

Remember back then? Everything was going great. Home prices were soaring. Jobs were plentiful.

The great cultural marketing machine was busy proclaiming that a new era of permanent prosperity had dawned, thanks to the steady leadership of Alan Greenspan and later Ben Bernanke. And only a small cadre of cranks, like me, was singing a different tune; warning instead that a painful reckoning in our financial system was approaching fast.

It's fitting that I'm writing this on Groundhog Day, as to these veteran eyes, it sure has been looking a lot like late 2007/early 2008 lately... » Read more

Believing The Impossible

Is necessary to rationalize today's bubble markets
Thursday, January 18, 2018, 8:13 PM

To borrow from Lewis Carroll: To have confidence in today's central bank-created bubble markets, we have to believe in six impossible things.

Remember that bubbles end remarkably quickly. When they burst, their job is to create the greatest misery possible for the greatest number of people possible. 

The only way to avoid that fate is to be positioned wisely in advance. Take steps now to ensure you're one of those prudent few. » Read more
