In this week's Off The Cuff podcast, Chris and Charles Hugh Smith discuss:
- Fraudulent Markets
- Justifying today's valuations requires more and more absurdity
- Rampant Risk
- We're too fearful of the small risks and too complacent of the big ones
- Con Job
- A complacent populace is easily manipulated
- The Need For Hard Truths
- Our savalation lies in our willigness to face reality as it is, not as we wish it to be
This week's discussion takes a fascinating turn into the psychological mindsets that are limiting society right now. Namely a willful blindness to the systemic risks we have created (too much debt, asset price bubbles, etc), paired with an anxiety over much smaller issues that keeps us as a populace meek, fearful and easily controlled. To break this cycle — or to deal effectively with the system once is breaks — we'll need to return to a more stoic and honest cultural mindset, one that can handle facing the hard truths.
