    Pre-ALERT: Trump Risks War With Russia

    The Syria powderkeg threatens to explode
    by Chris Martenson

    Trump has now backed his administration into a corner.  If there’s another suspected poison gas attack in Syria, he’s promised to escalate the situation by beginning bombings.

    It appears that what I feared might happen under a Clinton presidency (and I still think probably would have, anyways) is now happening under the Trump administration.

    Let me be perfectly clear: bombing Syria risks a direct confrontation with Russia.  If that happens, all bets are off. Anything could happen next, up to and including a nuclear exchange.

    ALERT: Markets In Breakdown

    Time to take emergency funds out of the banking system
    by Chris Martenson

    Thursday, February 11, 2016, 5:47 PM

    This is a formal ALERT.

    We issue those very sparingly here at Peak Prosperity. We only issue them when world events have gotten to the point that we are personally taking new actions to shore up our preparations.

    2016 is fast proving that the tranquility the world has enjoyed from 2010 up to now has been false; that the problems we face were merely temporarily papered-over by central planners, not resolved. That tranquility is now over. Prepare for more turbulent times.

    ALERT: Markets Are Highly Unstable, China Is Crashing

    Our first alert in over a year
    by Chris Martenson

    The multiple global bubbles in search of a pin may have found one in Greece.  The carnage there is clearly accelerating, and the central planners are straining mightily to get control back.

    While the odds favor them doing so, the risk is very high that they may not and that we are now in the 'descent' phase that follows the inevitable ending of the 'virtuous' phase (if we can call it that) of the money-printing experiment.

    Alert! – Nuclear (and Economic) Meltdown In Progres

    by Chris Martenson

    Wednesday, March 16, 2011, 7:32 PM

    Important note: 

    It is with a heavy heart that I am now issuing the highest level alert to my readers than I have to date. The threshold for an alert is one or more world events that personally cause me to take action.

    I’m making this alert publicly available less than 36 hours after releasing it to my enrolled subscribers given its importance and the speed at which events are accelerating.

    The substance of this alert centers on the unknown aftershocks that may result from the world’s third largest economy, Japan, rapidly shifting from an exporter of funding to a consumer of it. In situations like these, we are by definition operating with incomplete and often confusing information, and events are developing more rapidly than they can be fully analyzed and internalized. We regret in advance any mistakes that we might make due to making calls and decisions in this highly fluid environment.


    This alert warns you that major world-changing events are now underway and that your personal preparations for an uncertain future should either be completed or take on a new sense of urgency. On the basis of the information contained here and in the past two days of posts, I am personally ratcheting up my preparations, making purchases, and topping off what needs to be topped off.

    Important caveat:  At this point in time, I cannot fully support 100% of my concerns with hard data and evidence. Some of what has tipped me into this state of urgency is data, evidence, and stories that I can point to. Some is due to the absence of data or information, the remainder results from watching market gyrations and correlations shift into new patterns, which tell me something is afoot.

    I have not been this concerned since October of 2008.

    A Recent Alert – Fed Prints a Trillion

    by Chris Martenson

    Below is an alert I sent out on Wednesday evening.  I want everyone to see what is at the forefront of my thinking right now.

    I am busy writing up my next layers of thought around this development and will make that the basis of my next Martenson Report or two.  

    Why?  Because this recent action by the Fed is a "game changer."


    In a shocking development that I frankly hoped we’d never actually see, the Federal Reserve dropped a bombshell yesterday and announced that it is going to create an extra $1 trillion dollars out of thin air to support the spending desires of the US government and to drive down interest rates for mortgage borrowers.

    Of course, this will continue to punish savers and pension plans, but those, frankly, are of no concern to the Fed.

    Below I explore this outrageous turn of events. Please note that I have not had much time to digest this incredible news and that I reserve the right to add to (or amend) my thinking over the next few days.
