    Off The Cuff: The Path Forward

    Deep down, we know what to do. Chris goes solo again.
    by Adam Taggart

    In this week's Off The Cuff podcast, Chris talks about:

    • Our Ecological Budget Is In The Red
      • Our short-sightedness is dooming us
    • Our Economic Budget Is In Similar Danger
      • Again, we are living way above our means
    • Politically, We're Stumbling Badly, Too
      • North Korea, Russia, Syria, domestically…the list is long
    • We Can Do Better
      • There are plenty of better models out there, if we look for them

    Recording from vacation on a small island in Maine with no power, this is different than our standard Off The Cuff. Chris takes time to reflect on the repercussions of our poor policy choices and how those are manifesting in the world. What makes our mistakes so regrettable in his eyes is that there are clear ways to do things better — we don't need new magical solutions to appear; there are models that work right on the table, ready for use; if only we're bold enough to embrace change.

    Off The Cuff: No More Financial Crises “In Our Lifetime”

    Did Janet Yellen really just say that???
    by Adam Taggart

    In this week's Off The Cuff podcast, Chris discusses:

    • Market Jitters
      • What will happen if the central banks turn off the money?
    • No More Financial Crises "In Our Lifetime"
      • Did Janet Yellen really just say that???
    • Our States Are Falling Into Bankruptcy…
      • Illinois, Connecticut, Maine & more
    • While The Banks Get Even Fatter
      • Income from excess reserves to rise to $50 Trillion by 2019

    This week, Chris takes a moment to share his thoughts in depth on where we are in the global debt saga. The overhang is getting worse, growth is not riding to the rescue as hoped, and the central banks are running out of both smoke and mirrors to keep the game continuing. Should the $200 billion monthly bonanza of central bank liquidity start decreasing — as is now being increasingly discussed — expect markets to go south quickly.

    The End Of Money

    Our first live event on our new webinar platform
    by Adam Taggart

    Wednesday, May 10, 2017, 7:27 PM

    Today's lofty asset prices are dependent on one thing far beyond all else: continued massive amounts of liquidity injected each and every month by the world's central banks.

    Over $12 trillion in "thin air" money has been printed up by the world's central banks since the start of the Great Recession. And so far in 2017, a fresh $200 billion is added to the pile each month(!)

    This makes the future price trajectory for stocks, bonds, real estate and nearly every other asset class more dependent on central bank policy than at any time in history. Investors need to ask: What are the central banks most likely to do next, and what will the repercussions be?

    Why I’m Now Short The US Equity Markets

    After 7 long years of waiting...
    by Chris Martenson

    In the interests of full disclosure and of keeping you abreast of my personal investment actions, I entered a short position on Friday for the first time since 2009. Yes, it’s been seven years.

    The equity markets have been all but bulletproof for 6 years, but I think that phase has ended and we’re in for a rough ride from here on out.  At least until stocks fall far enough for the central banks to have another go at attempting to print up prosperity.

    First, I think that the stock rally of late is overdone and there’s more downside to come.  I have a whole host of supporting reasons based on credit markets and global trade, but we’ll get…

    What The Heck Just Happened?!?

    Prepare for more bruising days ahead in the markets

    Okay… time to take a deep breath.

    Today was an historic market day.  First for the computer driven plunge that was seemingly unstoppable, and then for the heroic rescue that at one point brought the whole mess back to green (Nasdaq) or close to it (S&P and Dow).
