    If you’re concerned about the overreach of government in juicing asset prices to dangerous levels, picking economic winner and losers, and constraining our personal freedoms — you have very good right to be.

    So says lifelong champion of free markets, sound money and civil liberty, former US Congressman Dr Ron Paul.

    Whether you understand it or not, Bitcoin and other ‘distributed ledger’ technologies are spreading at an accelerating rate across the world.

    Odds are very high they will disrupt and transform nearly every business model in today’s economy, much in the same way the advent of the Internet did.

    But most people are still unfamiliar with this new technology, and concerned that their lack of understanding may leave them obsolete dinosaurs in the coming future should crypto indeed change the nature of money and commerce.

    This is why we’ve brought on this week’s guest expert, Alex Saunders, respected Bitcoin/blockchain/crypto maven to demystify the topic and explain it all to us in plain layman’s English.

    The year 1971 saw the trajectories of nearly every major trend relative to our way of life shift massively.

    This week’s guest experts, Ben Prentice and Collin, founders of WTFHappenedIn1971.com, explain how virtually all of these changes are a direct or indirect result of the monetary system “breaking” that year with the Nixon Shock and the end of the Bretton Woods System.

    The Phantom Mania

    There's nothing of substance underlying the current market melt-up
    by Adam Taggart

    Well, stocks are back at all-time highs. Ignited by the Fed’s “Not-QE” program and endless Trump administration teases of an “imminent” China deal, the S&P 500 has been propelled above its upward Bollinger band — a hyperextension only seen one other time since 2007.

    Every week since Not-QE was announced has seen the S&P close green (this week finally ending the streak, barely). We’re officially in a melt-up, where both good news and bad news are accepted as valid reasons to push stocks even higher.

    But what’s notable about this melt-up is that it’s missing a compelling narrative. Every past asset price mania required a feel-good mantra that convinced the masses “This time is different!”.

    But today? What’s the radically better future being promised? Where’s the party train headed to?

    The most hated stock market rally still has room left to become truly despised, according to Martin Armstrong.

    With so much of the rest of the world beginning to succumb to the arriving global recession, capital is fleeing towards the relative safety and positive returns offered by America’s financial markets. As a result, Armstrong sees the US stock market continuing to power higher from here, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average potentially tagging 35,000 by 2021.
