    Major Announcement To The Community

    Chris & Adam heading in new, exciting and different directions
    by Chris Martenson

    In order to decide if your will continue to place your trust in this site going forward, you deserve the truth and sufficient context, so here it is.

    Adam and I were approached in 2019 by potential partners (a.k.a. ‘the investors’) at a time when we were both working the same long hours but watching our business slowly dwindle.  In the prior few years we watched many of our peers and on-line colleagues burn out and drop away as the endless financial repression (i.e. interest rates down, gold down, stocks up, reality nowhere to be found) continued to grind on and on and on.

    The good news was at least we were still afloat!  But we felt in need of a path that would allow us to navigate and survive a world that was increasingly more interested in telling itself fairy tales than confronting its many predicaments. 

    So we listened and wrestled with the deal before us.  The intentions were good.  They had powerful back-office and marketing functions and a large database of potential new minds to engage, and we had content. 

    I wanted to reach more people and Adam needed help managing the day-to-day aspects of our business.  It seemed that a strategic partnership could offer both of us what we wanted. 

    All parties signed a term sheet on December 26th, 2019.   There was much rejoicing.

    VIDEO: The Fed’s Evil Juggernaut

    Don't let it crush your future

    The US Federal Reserve is once again force-feeding liquidity into the system. At its fastest rate ever.

    The result? Record high stock prices whose valuations defy all logic.

    What’s wrong with that? Shouldn’t we just enjoy the party and be grateful for our rising 401ks?

    What’s wrong is that the Fed’s actions are dooming us. Their poisonous cocktail of endless cheap money and rock-bottom interest rates is hastening a terminal breakdown of the economy, while deliberately enriching a tiny cadre of elites to the ruin of everyone else.

    WTF: What The Fed?!?

    A video event with Mike Maloney, Grant Williams, Charles Hugh Smith and Chris & Adam

    Recently, Mike Maloney, Grant Williams, Charles Hugh Smith, Chris Martenson and Adam Taggart all convened to tackle the implications of the price distortions that central bank intervention has had on the financial markets.

    Back in 2018, each one of us was ringing a bell warning of a massive asset price bubble. 2019, however, only saw prices further shoot the moon (S&P up 28%, Nasdaq up 35%). And ever since ‘Not-QE’ was announced by the US Fed on Oct 8th, the rate of increase has only become more manic.

    Exactly WTF is going on?!?
