    ‘Ask Anything’ Coronavirus Live Q&A Webinar #2

    Airing tomorrow, Friday, Feb 21th @ noonET/9amPT
    by Adam Taggart

    Given the very positive feedback we received from Saturday’s webinar, Chris and I will be holding another 1-hour live “ask anything” Q&A webinar tomorrow, Friday, Feb 21 at noonET/9amPT.

    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 the outbreak remains fluid.

    cheers,

    Adam & Chris

    Why I’m Ramping Up My Coronavirus Preparations

    The more I learn about the virus, the more I don't want to get it
    by Adam Taggart

    In yesterday’s video (Coronavirus Infections Outside Of China Are Growing Exponentially) from Feb 19th, 2020, I put out the science behind why a second exposure may be worse than the first. That’s anything but proven at this point, but the fact that both SARS and MERS are that way, and given the high degree of sequence homology between both of those and COVID-19 we’re just going to have to guess that a second exposure to COVID-19 is worth avoiding.

    So much so that I’ve made the personal decision that I’m not going to get it the first time around. Mostly to avoid being at risk of getting it a second time.

    That’s a calculation based on the currently available data, which, admittedly, involves making a number of assumptions and a couple of educated leaps.

    I’m uncomfortable speculating in public because I’d be crucified by those protecting the official narrative.

    Here’s my primary personal strategy when it comes to the coronavirus (aka covid-19): Don’t get infected!

    Not until a truly effective vaccine is ready and I’ve gotten it. That’s going to be up to 18 months from now, possibly longer.

    This means I have to be ready to self-distance from other people for that entire time. It means I have to be mentally and financially ready to isolate at home for a very long time, if necessary. For much longer than I was actually prepared for when all this erupted last month.

    So, over the past few weeks I have taken the following steps… (Enroll now to continue reading)

    If you have not yet read Part 1: Why Covid-19 Demands Our Full Attention, available free to all readers, please click here to read it first.

    Chris and I have been running flat out to bring you as many daily videos/reports/podcasts/etc as we can while the fast-changing coronavirus outbreak continues developing.

    But in spite of our efforts, we’re aware many of you still have a lot of questions.

    So, we’ll be holding a 1-hour live “ask anything” Q&A webinar this Saturday, Feb 15 at noonET/9amPT.

    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.

    How We’re Personally Preparing Against The Coronavirus

    Steps to take both BEFORE and AFTER contagion
    by Chris Martenson

    Wednesday, February 5, 2020, 9:17 PM

    136

    Executive Summary

    • Understanding the motivation of the officials trying to avoid stating a panic
    • Steps to take BEFORE the coronavirus hits your area
    • Steps to take AFTER it does
    • Helpful resources (besides PP.com) for staying on top of the coronavirus threat

    If you have not yet read Part 1: Coronavirus: What We Can Say Publicly & What We Can’t, available free to all readers, please click here to read it first.

    The World Health Organization (WHO) made its position clear as recently as yesterday, once again chiding countries for limiting air travel with China.

    In fact the WHO has made more statements about NOT doing things that might harm travel and trade than they have issued anything remotely useful towards helping you understand and avoid contamination.

    Let them do their thing, while you do yours.

    That leaves the big question: What to do?

    To address that, Adam and I put together the guidance below, which is based on the steps we are taking in our own lives, with our own health, with our own families, in preparation should the coronavirus outbreak arrive where we live.

    To make it easier to digest, we’ve categorized our recommendations into… (Enroll now to continue reading)

    • 6 strategies for positioning your portfolio for the next market downturn
    • Deciding which strategies are most appropriate for you

    If you have not yet read Part 1: How Will The Coronavirus Impact The Markets?, available free to all readers, please click here to read it first.

    This is an updated version of Peak Prosperity’s guide to protecting your portfolio from downside risk.

    If you currently own stocks and/or mutual funds (privately, in a retirement account, or via a promised pension), this report is particularly relevant to you.

    Whether you’re looking for good places to park cash safely, or you have limited (or no) experience dealing with  such solutions as stops, limit orders, puts, calls, futures and inverse funds, this guide explains each in layman’s terms, along with context as to when each may be relevant given your goals.

    We feel that safety of your assets is paramount at this time. We highly advise prioritize focusing on “return OF capital” vs pursuing “return ON capital” given today’s dangerously vulnerable market conditions.

    Our Recommended Pandemic Preparations

    And why putting them in place RIGHT NOW is wise
    by Chris Martenson

    Friday, January 24, 2020, 9:26 AM

    129

    Executive Summary

    • Why the coronavirus is much more dangerous than the standard flu
    • Why, if it accelerates, it can easily overwhelm our health & safety systems
    • A list of the most important preparations for a pandemic
    • Why you *really* want to put those in place now

    If you have not yet read ALERT: Coronavirus Pandemic Event Now A Serious Risk, available free to all readers, please click here to read it first.

    Well, this is a report I really hoped never to write.  But we all need to get our head on straight around this fast-spreading viral outbreak.

    A pandemic is #3 on my personal “oh shit” list (a prolonged grid-down event is #2, and a global world war with nukes is, by far, #1)

    Once a pandemic spreads to my neck of the woods, I’m not going to be doing anything in the company of strangers.  No shopping, no going to restaurants, and especially no traveling in closed up metal tubes with recirculated air (i.e. planes and trains).

    I won’t be alone in those behaviors.  How many airline pilots, train conductors, trash collectors, and medical personnel have to call in “sick” to disrupt the entire system?  Not that many.

    So why is this Wuhan New Coronavirus (officially “2019-ncov”) a substantially more dangerous threat than the standard flu?

    There are two reasons to be worried about this particular strain.

    #1 is… (Enroll now to continue reading)

    Off The Cuff: Pre-emptive Strike

    The central planners are desperately fighting the next recession, even though it isn't here yet
    by Adam Taggart

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

    • Australia Is Burning
    • The impending shale oil bust
    • Central banking desperation
    • The PP May 2020 seminar

    The evidence is now impossible to refute: the Economic, Energy & Environmental predicaments this site has been warning of for years are now hitting in force. Central banks are panicking, Australia is burning and the shale oil patch is becoming a graveyard for investor capital.

    How desperate is it becoming?

    The One Good Thing About The Fed

    As it destroys our future, it's inadvertently giving us one precious resource
    by Chris Martenson

    The Fed and the other major world central banks are pumping huge amounts of money into global markets while busy ‘easing’, which means ‘lowering interest rates’.

    Their plan is for all this funny-money to boost further the stock markets, er ““markets,”” which is very popular with both the domestic politicians and the international Davos crowd that central bankers prefer to hang around with.

    Thus, every social pressure the central bankers are exposed to is 100% in support of continuing to pump up financial asset prices.
