    Off The Cuff: The Party’s Over

    Terrible data is finally ending our hopium addiction

    In this week’s Off The Cuff podcast, Chris and Mish Shedlock discuss:

    • Next Up: A Currency War With China?
    • Recession Warning
    • A War With Iran, Too?
    • More Cracks In Europe

    The self-delusional “Everything is awesome and getting better!” narrative that has pushed markets ever higher for the past years is suddenly unravelling. The current China tariffs will undo any remaining salubrious impact of the Trump tax cuts, a global recession appears underway, and — seriously — are we about to go to war with Iran??

    Deconstructing The Green New Deal

    Despite serious flaws, it sparks a needed conversation
    by Chris Martenson

    101

    The Green New Deal (GND) is important as a starting point to have a long, long overdue conversation about energy. Specifically: How are we going to eventually transition away from fossil fuels?

    As such, the proposal — while (very) far from perfect — should not be ignored and deserves our attention. 

    It's also important because it represents the sorts of zig-zags our social and political paths are inceasingly likely to take in the coming future as we're forced to face our looming economic, ecological and energy-related predicaments.

As with past years, he has graciously selected PeakProsperity.com as the site where it will be published in full. It's quite longer than our usual posts, but worth the time to read in full.

    Italy Votes No(!)

    Et tu, Brute?
    by Chris Martenson

    Monday, December 5, 2016, 2:52 AM

    The Italian vote delivered the most unsurprising surprise today – another rejection of the elites by the people.

    Oh the humanity!

    Time for the elites to get out of their echo chambers and find out what life is like for the people laboring under their poorly thought through and inhumane policies. 

    Remember, we humans like it better when things are fair and just.  Heck, it goes further than that; primates like it better when things are fair and just.

    The Great Market Tide Has Now Shifted To Risk-Off Assets

    A global sea-change in risk appetite & sentiment
    by charleshughsmith

    Friday, July 8, 2016, 7:03 PM

    In the conventional investment perspective, risk-on assets (i.e. investments with higher risks and higher potential returns) such as stocks are on a see-saw with risk-off assets (investments with lower returns and lower risk, such as Treasury bonds). When risk appetites are high, institutional managers and speculators move money into stocks and high-yield junk bonds, and move money out of safe-haven assets such as gold and U.S. Treasuries.

    But recently, markets are no longer following this convention. Safe haven assets such as precious metals and Treasuries are soaring at the same time that stock markets bounced strongly off the post-Brexit lows.

    Risk-on assets (stocks) rising at the same time as safe-haven assets is akin to dogs marrying cats and living happily ever after. 

    What the heck is going on?

    Off The Cuff: Something Crazy Is Getting Ready To Happen

    The next major crisis is set to blow
    by Adam Taggart

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

    • The FBI Findings Regarding Clinton's Emails
      • It really does seem there's a different set of rules for the privileged
    • Something Crazy Is Getting Ready To Happen
      • Why the next major crisis is set to blow
    • Watch The Bank Stocks
      • When they've dropped this far, you know there's trouble
    • The New Bull Market For Gold & Silver
      • Many mining stock are up 300-500%

    Wow, so much ground to cover this week. And Chris and John do a great job of covering as much as they can. What does the FBI's hands-off approach to Clinton say about the fairness of rule of law in today's society? What systemic fault lines has Brexit opened for the EU, as well as the rest of the world? Why is the banking system suddenly looking so sick? What does the recent surge in precious metals portend?

    Axel Merk: Making Sense Of The Impact Of Brexit

    A special edition podcast
    by Adam Taggart

    Tuesday, June 28, 2016, 12:22 AM

    29

    A very sleep-deprived Axel Merk joins us for this special edition podcast. Axel and his team have pulled late nights over the past few days following the Brexit vote results in real-time and the ensuing aftermath.

    Axel, CEO and founder of the Merk Funds, is originally from Europe and one of the best experts we know on the currency markets, as well as monetary policy. In this podcast, he explains why he sees the Brexit as a sea-change in sentiment that will have far-reaching implications for Britain, Europe, and the rest of the world — though it may take years before they are fully recognized and expressed. He expects the post-Brexit future to more market volatility, more populism as political stability weakens, more (ineffectual) fiscal spending to goose economic growth, and likely more armed conflict around the world.
