    It’s that time of year again, when the urgent emails start arriving asking “Do you have anything I can give to  my husband/wife/kid/buddies for the holidays?”

    Why yes. Yes, we do…

    CSI: US Equity “Markets”

    Analyzing the crime scene the stock market has become

    What happened last night — the Fed money hose connected to the Trump admin’s use of Bloomberg to pump out another China trade rumor — is really a crime scene.

    I’m not sure which bothers me the most, that it happened again, or that it worked again. Neither speaks very highly for the integrity of the system.

    What’s Possible?

    The key question to ask when looking to replace the status quo
    by Chris Martenson

    As we look at the multiplying signs of failure across our economy and the environment, society is slowing realizing that we need to start doing things differently if we want a future to be proud of. Those awakening to this are asking: What should we do?

    I think a better question to ask is: What’s possible?

    That’s the question that has been waking me up early in the morning for the past few weeks.

    Art Berman: Houston, We Have A Problem

    The surplus energy that powers the world is declining

    Chris caught petroleum geologist Art Berman right before he went on stage to deliver a presentation on the limitations of shale oil (his excellent slides can be found here). The world is finally starting to realize that the profit-making potential of this space was drastically over-hyped.

    But more important, warns Art, is that the souring sentiment on shale oil is a reflection on the bigger challenge ahead of us: How we will power the world in a future of declining net energy?

    Through them, we intend to bring the Peak Prosperity message to many more people, produce more content at higher quality than we’re currently able to, and expand the resilience-building solutions we offer.

    Epic Fail

    Ignore the stock melt-up. The data is screaming we're in trouble.

    The US Federal Reserve currently believes they are doing “good” by preventing downturns and sending asset prices higher.

    But in reality, they’re setting the stage for a very disappointing future. Perhaps even a violent one.

    The Phantom Mania

    There's nothing of substance underlying the current market melt-up
    by Adam Taggart

    Well, stocks are back at all-time highs. Ignited by the Fed’s “Not-QE” program and endless Trump administration teases of an “imminent” China deal, the S&P 500 has been propelled above its upward Bollinger band — a hyperextension only seen one other time since 2007.

    Every week since Not-QE was announced has seen the S&P close green (this week finally ending the streak, barely). We’re officially in a melt-up, where both good news and bad news are accepted as valid reasons to push stocks even higher.

    But what’s notable about this melt-up is that it’s missing a compelling narrative. Every past asset price mania required a feel-good mantra that convinced the masses “This time is different!”.

    But today? What’s the radically better future being promised? Where’s the party train headed to?

    Sebastian Junger: Is Our Material Wealth Undermining Our Happiness & Health?

    For all modern society has gained, we may have lost what really matters

    One the most personally meaningful podcast interviews we’ve done over the years was Our Evolutionary Need For Community, recorded with Peabody award-winning author Sebastian Junger.

    Since recording our initial interview with Sebastian, we’ve often shared the insights from it with the Peak Prosperity tribe at live events and in our writings. So this week we decided to reconnect with Sebastian, and hear how his thoughts and conclusions on the topic have evolved since we last talked with him.

    It’s clear that he believes more than ever that the future prosperity of our society will be rooted in rediscovering how to create and foster the communal bonds our tribal ancestors lived by. And that begins by taking an honest look at the narratives, behaviors, and modern conveniences and temptations that keep us trapped in unhappy, unhealthy isolation.

    Off The Cuff: The System Is Purposely Insidious

    The wealth of the 99% is being intentionally syphoned into the pockets of the elites
    by Jason Wiskerchen

    In this week’s Off The Cuff podcast, Chris and Wolf Richter discuss:

    • Only An Elite Few Benefit From The ‘Wealth Effect’
    • The System Is Purposely Insidious
    • Only Revolution Will Change Things At This Point
    • What The Heck Is The Fed Up To Next?

    Get ready for ‘no punches pulled’ barnburner of a discussion. Both Chris and Wolf are hopping mad at the increasing squeeze our system is placing on the masses — the ‘wealth effect’ created by current Fed policy is only enjoyed by the already stinking rich, and everyone else is being left fewer and fewer crumbs.
