    Fauci politics over science

    Fauci Places Politics Over Science (and your health)

    Yes, I'm disappointed
    by Chris Martenson

    Tuesday, September 29, 2020, 6:45 PM


    The main health authority in the US is placing politics over science.  We’re running out of reasonable excuses for why this might be.  But the science is clear, or at least not nearly as settled as Fauci claims.

    Protecting & Growing Your Money

    How to prudently position for the coming crisis
    by Adam Taggart

    There’s no doubt that money is important. There’s good reason why most of us devote a huge percentage of our lives to pursuing it.

    But there’s much about money that is misunderstood.

    PeakProsperity.com is changing for the better
    by Adam Taggart

    Monday, April 29, 2019, 6:10 PM


    Most readers know we've been hard at work behind the scenes rebuilding the guts of the PeakProsperity.com website.

    For a few months now, we've been saying that we're approaching the date when we'll move the website off of an older technology platform (Drupal 6) and migrate it to a much better one for us (the latest WordPress version).

    Well, that date has now arrived. We're in the process of making the transition as you read this.

    It's 2016 All Over Again. Or Is It?

    The fate of the global economy rides on the answer
    by Chris Martenson

    Saturday, April 20, 2019, 7:59 AM


    Conditions today mirror 2016, when growing weakness in the global economy and wobbling financial markets caused the world’s central banks to absolutely freak out.

    They responded by dumping more thin-air money into the system than ever before in history. And it worked (for them at least). Economic growth stabilized; and the prices of stocks, real estate, and other assets enjoyed another three-year joyride.

    Similary, as things started getting shaky in late 2018, the same playbook was deployed. And again, we've seen stocks rocket upwards ever since. 

    But will the strategy actually work this time?  It's unclear. And a lot is riding on the answer.

    VIDEO: A Key Insight From Our Webinar Series On Real Estate Investing

    Addressing the top concern PP members have about housing
    by Adam Taggart

    Tuesday, April 16, 2019, 12:14 PM


    During this past weekend's episode of our ongoing webinar series on real estate investing, we put the presenter, Russell Gray on the spot.

    He had just finished talking about the role of (prudent) leverage in real estate and how it acts as a force-multiplier for:

    • income received vs income invested
    • boosting total return (often by several multiples)
    • extracting gained equity and re-investing it to produce more cash flow by purchashing additional property
    • mitigating risk (though risk will always be involved)

    But, leverage is perhaps the biggest concern Peak Prosperity readers have regarding real estate: If we go through another burst housing bubble price correction, will leverage become a killer?

    The answer is nuanced and Russ did a great job addressing it. Here's his answer.

    The Bull(y) Rally

    Something unnatural is going on
    by Adam Taggart

    Sunday, April 14, 2019, 3:00 PM


    “A bully is always a coward.”

    ~ Thomas Chandler Haliburton

    The current market rally is like a playground bully; shoving to the ground anyone in its path.

    But like all bullies, the braggadocio belies an underlying cowardice.

    Those in charge of the status quo must be absolutely terrified to resort to the unnatural lengths they are going to right now to keep the current rally intact.

    We are a nation of lab rats.

    Fun With Numbers

    How to value & finance real estate property
    by Adam Taggart

    Thursday, April 4, 2019, 12:45 PM


    If you've not been watching our Real Estate investing webinar series, you're missing out on a wealth of learning.

    Our last episode, Episode #3, received rave reviews. It was a 2-hour romp through the math involved in valuing real estate property. Russell Gray does an excellent job de-mystifying the numbers for newbies and the math-phobic, walking through the calculations and showing how virtually anyone can derive empirical answers to questions like:

    • What's a fair value for this property? Is it under/overvalued?
    • What's my expected return if I purchase this property?
    • What are the investments can I make that will have the biggest impact on increasing my equity? Or my income?

    Don't forget to register for our upcoming Episode #4, in which Russ will build on his earlier material, explaining how to secure capital for investment property, how leverage can be used (prudently, not recklessly) to increase your returns, and what tax implications (and often benefits) to expect.

    A Primer On How To Buy And Store Gold & Silver

    Most people aren't aware of the full range of options
    by Adam Taggart

    Saturday, March 30, 2019, 4:19 PM


    I’m always surprised by how few people understand the options for buying precious metals. Even the very affluent.

    I find myself guilty of assuming that everyone is as familar as I with the full specturm of gold-silver purchase options available. So to correct that, I’ve taken the time this week to detail those options out for the novice buyer.

    So, if you’ve been thinking about converting some of your paper fiat money into precious metals but are unsure how to start, wonder no more.

    Below is a primer of the main options available to you, and in which situations each makes sense to consider.
