    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).

    Gold Assaulted (Again)

    But don't expect the authorities to care
    by Chris Martenson

    Over and over again, and with increasing frequency, we’ve seen “”markets”” behave in ways that defy common sense but align perfectly with the goals of the central planners.

    Stocks up. Bonds stable. Commodities down. And especially: Gold down — practically every month since the commencement of QE3, the largest money printing operation in world history.

    You really have to be paying attention to see what’s truly going on these days. The keepers of the system, that is the banking elites, now openly control everything — though you'd never know that by listening to the media.

    Charles Eisenstein: Crafting A New Narrative

    And your chance to be part of it
    by Adam Taggart

    Much has been written here at PeakProsperity.com of late about the need for society to adopt a new narrative to live by. One deeply-ingrained with sustainability and stewardship — else our current fixation with consumption and exploitation of nature's finite resources will meet a very predictable and unpleasant end.

    So, for those that agree a new operating story is needed: Where do we start?

    This week, author Charles Eisenstein joins Chris and Becca to discuss their upcoming participation in The New Story festival, a gathering specifically focused on sparking momentum behind this important movement. More details on the event, which takes place in Bethany CT on June 12-13th, can be found here.

    In Denial: We Pursue Endless Growth At Our Peril

    A requiem for planet Earth
    by Chris Martenson

    As we’ve been discussing of late here at PeakProsperity.com, humans desperately need a new story to live by. The old one is increasingly dysfunctional and rather obviously headed for either a quite dismal or possibly disastrous future. One of the chief impediments to recognizing the dysfunction of the old story and adopting a new one is the most powerful of all human emotional states: Denial.

    In the recent post on the need for a new set of founding documents and the burning need for a new narrative, it was suggested that I talk with Charles Eisenstein again because he’s one of the great thought leaders in this area.

    Well, I can do one better than that. I was recently offered the chance, along with Becca, to join in a whole day of new story development with Charles.
