    Off The Cuff: The Party’s Over

    Terrible data is finally ending our hopium addiction
    by Adam Taggart

    Monday, May 20, 2019, 10:15 AM

    In this week’s Off The Cuff podcast, Chris and Mish Shedlock discuss:

    • Next Up: A Currency War With China?
    • Recession Warning
    • A War With Iran, Too?
    • More Cracks In Europe

    The self-delusional “Everything is awesome and getting better!” narrative that has pushed markets ever higher for the past years is suddenly unravelling. The current China tariffs will undo any remaining salubrious impact of the Trump tax cuts, a global recession appears underway, and — seriously — are we about to go to war with Iran??

    Creating A World Worth Inheriting

    These opportunities excite me the most right now

    Executive Summary

    • Changing your fate requires action today
    • Here’s the action/opportunity I’m most focused on today in my own life
    • How to step into an “elder” role, if you have the courage
    • How to create a world worth inheriting

    If you have not yet read Part 1: The Path From Survival To Significance, available free to all readers, please click here to read it first.

    Our mission at Peak Prosperity is to “Create a world worth inheriting”. Every single day we feel like we’re doing everything we can to move towards this goal. But some days, it feels like our efforts may not be nearly enough to get the job done.

    But while our own actions may be insufficient, they are necessary. And paired with the steps you take, and those of the hundreds of thousands of other PeakProsperity.com readers, our odds for success exponentially improve.

    I’d like to slip out of ‘convincing mode’ for this piece. Because so many people still seem to be unaware of our many predicaments, I often find myself leaning towards lining up all the evidence, in the hope that I can open a few more eyes.

    But not today. We all know the score. We’re collectively on a terribly unsustainable course. The data is overwhelming at this point.

    All of this then, leads to the idea that to create a world worth inheriting we have to first admit that our society is not on track to do that.

    It’s up to us to plan accordingly, based on what our own eyes, ears and hearts are telling us is true.

    Mine tell me that there’s a better way, one that does not involve squabbling like primitive monkeys over key resources.

    And then we must be willing to change on a very deep level. Both internally so we can be proper elders and compatriots to those around us, and externally as we move into a life of consuming less.

    I look around and I see people using their big brains to work with nature, create abundance, and believe in ourselves as creative forces for good.

    The opportunities that are capturing my personal attention most and are inspiring me into new action in my own life are…

    War with Iran

    War with Iran – The Risk is Elevated

    Are you prepared?

    Is it really about to go down in Iran?  Is a war now coming?

    The Twitter feeds I have tracking Iran are on fire this morning.

    Looks like the Trade deal is bad enough and the Barr investigation threatening enough that the “answer” is war with Iran.

    Wild Markets, Wild Times

    Trade deal dead, and sabotage in the Persian Gulf.

    It was a tough day in the equity markets especially for the story stocks.  All we need is one distinct failure of one of the key story stocks and we’ll be off to the bubble-bursting races.

    Or a massive spike in the price of oil which is what we’ll get if the three (or more) sabotaged tankers at the UAE port in the Persian Gulf is the start of something a bit hotter and more kinetic.

    Off The Cuff: Big Trouble In China Trade Talks

    The breakdown in talks has created a market breakdown
    by Adam Taggart

    In this week’s Off The Cuff podcast, Chris and Charles Hugh Smith discuss:

    • What’s driving the latest breakdown in trade talks
    • The 2 Chinas: and why it can no longer have it both ways
    • The dollar shortage in China
    • The great global slowdown

    The big news driving the markets this week is obviously the breakdown in trade talks between the US and China. In this week’s podcast, Chris and Charles deconstruct the key variables of the situation and explain why they don’t think a deal can get done anytime soon:

    The Trade Deal Has Collapsed

    The main support propping up the markets suddenly looks very shaky
    by cmartenson

    Count me as surprised, but it seems like the China trade deal is collapsing.  Surprised because both sides, China and the US, have much to lose in this battle.

    While there’s certainly some temporary local benefit to various pockets and sectors of the economy, the fact remains that the world economy is still exhibiting signs of slowing down and anything that puts additional weight on the economy right now could be the stone that sinks the barge.

    How to escape the slow squeeze of financialization
    by cmartenson

    • How financialization facilitates wealth transfer
    • How to escape the slow squeeze of financialization
    • Understanding mannon
    • How to prepare for the future

    If you have not yet read Part 1: The Company Store , available free to all readers, please click here to read it first.

    Given that the powers that be are highly motivated to keep their power and privilege intact, we all need to be prepared for the trends to continue for a while longer, perhaps a lot longer, before they change.

    In fact, I think we need to get this right out on the table; nothing will change until something forces that change.

    Whether that’s an ecological catastrophe that cannot be ignored any longer, a financial collapse, or a social rebellion is unknowable.  But something along those lines.

    Power never gives up its advantages willingly.  Especially not a power structure so far gone that it shrugs when its children (as young as 5!) and farmers alike are resorting to suicide as a means of escape from its depredations and oversights.

    Especially not from a system of banking that doesn’t even question handing out many trillions of dollars against dodgy collateral (“it was an emergency!”).

    Meanwhile you and I have to live our lives knowing that there’s a rigged game afoot that is rather unhinged and bottomless in its desire for more (mammon is winning).

    The opportunity, such as it is, is for us to first recognize this game for what it is (rigged) and to realign our own actions with the future we wish to see.  Step one is…

    Off The Cuff: How The Game Ends

    Why hard assets will be the last man standing
    by Adam Taggart

    Thursday, April 25, 2019, 5:38 PM

    In this week's Off The Cuff podcast, Chris and John Rubino discuss:

    • Moral Hypocracy
      • One set of rules for the elites, another for the rest of us
    • Inflation Is Coming
      • The Fed should be careful what it wishes for
    • Uncharted Territory
      • All countries are pursuing extreme policies right now
    • How The Game Ends
      • Hard assets will be the last man standing

    In this week's discussion, John Rubino gives a useful revisitation of why owning hard assets is so important. While the exact path we take is still unpredictable, the endgame is increasingly clear: the world's current fiat currencies are losing their purchasing power at an accelerating rate.
