    Dude, Where's My Cash?

    The growing desperation for income
    by Adam Taggart

    Sunday, February 17, 2019, 12:45 PM


    A few months back, we issued a report, The Primacy Of Income, declaring the end of the era of capital gains.

    It's conclusion? Wealth accumulation over the next decade will be predominantly driven by income.

    Since issuing that report, developments have only served to underscore that prediction.

    The Siren Song of the Robot

    It may not be the boon we're counting on
    by Gregor Macdonald

    Tuesday, January 29, 2013, 5:03 PM


    The quest for cheap energy and cheap labor is a conquering human urge, one that has played out with notable ferocity starting with the Industrial Revolution. The introduction of coal into British manufacturing and the more recent outsourcing of Western manufacturing to Asia have marked key thresholds in this ongoing progression.

    But despite the harvesting of additional productivity gains from the more recent revolution in information technology, the suite of macro data suggests that the rate of advancement in physical production has slowed, notably, in the past thirty years.

    Seen in this light, the greatest gains to global industrial production were probably enjoyed from the late 18th century (when coal extraction and use began in earnest) into the mid-20th century (when oil reached broad distribution). In contrast, computers, the Internet, and the leveraging of developing world labor might eventually be seen as the finishing touches on this great industrial wave.

    Introducing Amazon Supply

    A source for tools, materials, and more
    by Jason

    Monday, October 22, 2012, 10:48 PM


    I recently discovered AmazonSupply.com while looking for parts for my grain mill/exercise bike connection project (pedal-powered grain mill) and I thought it would be good to share the resource.  They have almost anything you can imagine for tools, parts, and supplies (for me it was sprockets).  Great for small business looking to order everyday office products or for parts for DIY home projects. They also have a 365-day return period.

    Time to Spread the Message

    by Adam Taggart

    Saturday, April 16, 2011, 1:37 AM


    Chris’ book version of the Crash Course has been out for almost a month now. So far it’s receiving strong praise, and we have Chris busy on the media treadmill promoting it. Now we need your help to catapult the book and its message into the mainstream consciousness.

    Here’s why: Book sales in the early weeks following a book release matter greatly. These numbers have a huge influence on how many books the big retail distributors (Barnes & Noble, Amazon, Borders) decide to stock. The more books they put on the shelves, the more get sold – which then gets the media’s attention. If we’re fortunate, a virtuous cycle ensues. We believe (obviously) that this material deserves the widest attention possible.

    The book is a much deeper dive into the critical material contained in the video series, updated for the many developments (both in the world and in Chris’ analysis) that have unfolded since the videos were first created in 2008. The early reviews are unanimous in this regard. The book also contains a lot of new predictions from Chris on topics like resource scarcity, obstacles to economic growth, and the vulnerability of our complex energy system – which already look astoundingly prescient, given the volatile events characterizing 2011 so far (escalating food and energy prices, the Fukushima disaster, mid-east unrest, skyrocketing gold and silver prices, continued dollar weakness, bailouts for Portugal and Ireland, etc.)

    Whether you’ve already read the book or not, you can definitely help our efforts in using it to create awareness of the core Crash Course tenets among mass audiences. Here’s how:
