    I’d definitely be in on that

It sounds like a good alternative to trekking to the East Coast, although that was fun, it's just not convenient.

Well, that's certainly convenient and a fantastic offer.  Please provide Adam with any details and we'll see what can be put together…

Thank you.  🙂

    I’m at the Munich PM show

I've been invited to speak, for the first time, at the Munich precious metals show.  I haven't spoken yet, I go on at 4…

But I'm running into a lot of people who know of Peak Prosperity and have been recognized a few times so far…once this morning while at breakfast by a gentleman who knew my voice…he stopped looked over and said "You're the guy on Featured Voices!"

He didn't know my name…I love it.  🙂

At any rate, there's lots of bling on display here…display cases crammed with gold and silver with people buying.  I'm watching lots of transactions happening.

Also, there's a book seller here, and even if you don't happen to read German, I am sure you can divine that these are kindred souls to our cause and our message.

 

This is my first time in Germany and the difference between here and Argentina is astonishing.  Here everything is tidy and organized.  The ride out from the airport on the train goes through small farms the entire way.  

Everybody speaks English, and they all wait for the cross walk lights even if there are no cars on the road.

In other words, entirely different from Argentina.  🙂

Culture matters.  If you want prosperity and abundance you have to plan for it and work for it being careful not to accidentally let it be destroyed by corrupt political and economic institutions.

To this end, what Mario Draghi is busy doing to Europe is the opposite of building prosperity, he is sowing the seeds of a profoundly (and profoundly unfair) economic destruction.  

More to come…

    And Draghi is working hand in hand with Frau Merkel

Doesn't sound like you've had the tour of the local Muslim-immigrant-majority areas Frau Merkel is quickly building up. The Germans seem to be passing the tipping point at which importing low IQ, low skill, welfare-dependent, no-German-culture people passes from being enrichment into being cultural and economic destruction.  I wish them luck in their cultural experiment, but I'm glad I'm way over here.

    More photos

I just had an interesting lunch with Ronald Stoferle who runs a few funds based on Austrian views and is a co-author of the book Austrian School for Investors.  A super nice guy, and of like mind when it comes ot the general direction of the world and the probable bad ending that the thin-air crowd has given to us all.

He is also the co-author of the yearly "In Gold We Trust" which runs a full 160+ pages.

I have not yet talked, will give an update when I have, but it should be a full audience today.  This place is hopping but, according to Ronald, a pale shadow of where it was a few years back due to waning interest in PM's and other various headwinds.

Here's a few more photos for you.  One a gratuitous bling shot, the other showing that the most crowded buying booth is selling silver.  It was two deep and the cash was flying back and silver forth.

No, I am in the high rent district I guess.  But everybody I am talking to about the refugee situation expresses concern.  

As always, it's not just the direction of change, but the pace of change.  When it comes to culture, nothing can happen quickly without resistance and difficulty.  

But on Europe, they are undergoing a massive and rapid shift.  By design it seems.  Somebody thinks this is a good idea, but I suspect it's really more a case of the Overton Window meets The Protected Classes than some insidious plot.

Either way, not a good situation though.  

Here's a link to a non-paywall version of Peggy Noonan's Protected Class OpEd for those who haven't already read it in the WSJ.

    Great Peggy Noonan article

Great Peggy Noonan article Chris. She makes it all so commonsensical.

Draghi is obviously chipping away relentlessly at the foundations of real culture in Europe. Goering was famously driven to say that whenever he heard the word "culture", he reached for his revolver!

I do believe to build an enduring culture, politicians need to take on their own tribe at some point. I wish Merkel well.  Whether she has overreached herself remains to be seen.

Unfortunately in the US tribes appear to be forming and are being egged on…..

    Weekly Update 4/11/2017

Hi Chris,

Just saw your weekly update from Germany – Fantastic! Looking forward to reading more about your impressions of Munich and how your talk was received.

Does the Museum have an on-line version of their 'How to manage an energy transition?'

Thanks
