Poll for this week's article topic
But I’d be very interested in PPs take in mining stocks. I live near several mining towns in Colorado, so I’d like to know what you guys think about directing some funds into the Newmonts and others. Thanks!
Can’t we do both at the same time?
The likelihood of layoffs is of interest. One, gov. employment numbers are cooked. Second, I personally know a dozen people who are already seriously under-employed. Layoffs were a major step factor in the last housing bobble burst. How big a change might be the next big trigger. How might that effect upstream oil investments. Etc.
This is going to be the biggest run that mining stocks have ever had and anyone inclined to get into them would be CRAZY to miss out on them.
Both good topics but I vote mining stocks first as it seems to have more exigency given rapid price ramp up of late. The power of FOMO
I love what this site has done for my preparedness and planning over the last decade. That said, I truly wish Chris would have talked a bit more about Bitcoin in it’s infancy. I vividly recall talking to my wife about it when it was well below $100. Ended up dumping money into the property and investing in physical PM’s. Not that that wasn’t a good idea, but a tutorial on how to accumulate a little digital currency and a push to allocate a small percentage of it into my life would have been insanely helpful in building resilience. The next move up in the PM sector could be similar….I’d like to participate.
Le mining stocks, s’il vous plait.

The Oz economy is not healthy. Corporations will seek to rid themselves of human employees with even more vigour.
Wow — ask and ye shall receive.
Thanks for all the feedback folks.
Clearly, there’s strong interest in both topics.
Here’s what I’ve decided to do.
For this Friday, I’m going to write about layoff risk. How it’s increasing at the macro level, signs your job may be at risk, how to reduce your vulnerability to a layoff, and what do asap should a pink slip appear on your desk.
AND, for next Wed, I’m going to produce a webinar on investing in the precious metals miners. It will bring back Brien Lundin, publisher of GoldNewsletter.com, the oldest-running analysis of PM miners; feature Rick Rule, Sprott’s renowned mining expert; and include, of course, Chris. We’ll take as much audience Q&A as possible during the webinar.
This webinar be free to all and will air live on Wed @ 7pm ET/4pm PT. You can register for it by clicking here.
As usual, everyone who registers will receive a replay video of the event once it’s over.
That’s about as close as I can come to pleasing everyone. Hope it’s sufficient for now.
Well I work in gold mining so I’m interested in both!
