    What I don’t put out in public, besides my daily reminder to “start a garden,” is that I foresee a particularly strong possibility that things will get a lot worse before they get better.

    Social unrest, increases in crime, and food shortages — dangers like that.

    So to shield myself and those I care about, the biggest new initiative I’m undertaking in my own personal life is….

    Off The Cuff: Too Vital To Fail

    Revisiting the world's sad addiction to fossil fuel
    by Adam Taggart

    Tuesday, June 9, 2020, 1:15 PM

    In this week’s Off The Cuff podcast, Chris and Art Berman discuss:

    • It’s about as bad as it has ever been for the US oil industry
    • Expect the government to intervene, as oil is Too Vital To Fail
    • Any ‘recovery’ will be long and costly
    • Like it or not, energy conservation and efficiency will be forced on society

    The global economy remains completely addicted to fossil fuel, particularly oil — the “master” resource.

    Of late, a collapse in the price of oil due to a slowing global economy — and then the widespread shutdowns forced by covid-19 — combined with overleveraged players and energetically-expensive extraction practices, and the industry is facing a likely wave of bankruptcies.

    So expect extreme action to keep the oil flowing, including but not limited to government takeover. Why? It truly is an “at all costs” need for those in charge. Art explains why extremely eloquently in this podcast.

    Off The Cuff: Waking Up To A Changed World

    Covid has unleashed decades-worth of transformation all at once
    by Adam Taggart

    Monday, June 1, 2020, 5:03 PM

    10

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

    • How covid has accelerated decades-worth of change
    • Why industries & social behavior are permanently affected
    • It will take years for the new landscape to stabilize
    • Why the economic pain and inequality will lead to greater social unrest

    Covid-19 has forced an immediate and permanent transformation of the global status quo, and we are in the early stages of understanding exactly how. But it is becoming clear that the pains involved will not be over quickly and that things will take years to stabilize.

    Wolf explains how everything from jobs, to home prices, to social behavior, to financial assets will continue to be buffeted well into 2021, and how the actions of the Federal Reserve are exacerbating the complaints of injustice that underlie the multiplying protests around the nation.

    REPLAY VIDEO: ‘Ask Anything’ Q&A Webinar

    Watch Chris & Adam field *more* questions from PP subscribers
    by Adam Taggart

    Sunday, May 24, 2020, 6:45 AM

    Here’s the replay video of Friday’s “Ask Anything” Coronavirus/Market-Meltdown Q&A webinar #3.

    Why is this restricted to Peak Prosperity’s premium subscribers? Two main reasons:

    One — we expect a number of our answers to be our ‘best guesses’ given the incomplete data available. We don’t feel it appropriate to put that kind of speculation out into the public domain.

    And Two — one of the many benefits of premium membership is closer access to the experts on this site.

    If you’re not yet a premium member but would like becoming one and watch the webinar, click here to subscribe.

    And if you choose not to enroll, that’s completely fine. We’ll still continue producing our free daily videos/etc for as long as these historic challenges we face remain fluid.

    cheers,

    Adam & Chris

    It’s been a while since Chris and I have been able to squeeze in a real-time conversation with our premium users, so we’re going to hold a 1-hour live “ask anything” Q&A webinar this weekend on Saturday, May 23 at noonET/9amPT.

    Why is this event restricted to Peak Prosperity’s premium subscribers? Two main reasons:

    One — we expect a number of our answers to be our ‘best guesses’ given the incomplete data available. We don’t feel it appropriate to put that kind of speculation out into the public domain.

    And Two — one of the many benefits of premium membership is closer access to the experts on this site.

    If you’re not yet a premium member but would like becoming one and watch the webinar, click here to subscribe.

    And if you choose not to enroll, that’s completely fine. We’ll still continue producing our free daily videos/etc for as long as the outbreak remains fluid.

    cheers,

    Adam & Chris

    ALERT: Reallocating (Some) Cash Due To Inflation Concerns

    A move from paper to tangible feels warranted
    by Adam Taggart

    This is an official Peak Prosperity ALERT. We don’t issue alerts very often — only when Chris or I are taking personal action in our own lives in response to recent developments.

    The last alert we issued was on January 23 in response to the concerning pandemic threat we identified (quite early and accurately, I may add). You know what followed after that.

    Well, today I took action in my own financial portfolio that I deem important enough to share with our premium subscribers.

    Specifically, I’m beginning the process of reducing my cash reserves — which have comprised the majority of my portfolio — and exchanging it for inflation-resistant assets.

    Why am I doing this now and what exactly am I exchanging this cash for?

    The trigger that caught my attention was…. (Enroll now to continue reading)

    The Implosion Of Oil = Game Over For The Economy

    More than anything else, the drop in oil demand reveals how far economic activity has fallen
    by Chris Martenson

    The current Federal Reserve money printing is doing little more than delaying the inevitable crash that is coming.

    Worse, when it does come, it will arrive with extra force because the Fed is pushing thin-air money by the trillions into a rapidly shrinking economy.

    This means we all have to be ready for…. (Enroll now to continue reading)
