    The Wealthy Are Plotting To Leave Us Behind

    In the absence of an official plan, you'd better have your own — something the extremely wealthy are already working on for themselves.

    As the co-founders of Peak Prosperity, Adam and I happen to know and/or interact with quite a few wealthy people who are deeply concerned about the future and taking steps to assure their survival in it.  These people have access to the very best information; they know the system better than your average citizen.  They know what the weak points are and what could go wrong.

    From our observations, it’s safe to say that the more insider-experience an individual has, the greater their concern.

    The least-concerned people are those without much knowledge of the system (i.e., most "regular" folks). Or a weak sense of curiosity. Or, most damagingly, a propensity to get their news from the mainstream media.  Let’s just say that the information available to the “retail crowd” is either incomplete or misleading (and quite often intentionally so).

    What I mean to say more directly is: if you're not already a billionaire and getting access to the very best and most accurate information, you’d do well to….

    Art Berman: Like It Or Not, The Future Remains All About Oil

    And competition for it is heating up
    by Adam Taggart

    Art Berman, 40-year veteran in the petroleum production industry and respected geological consultant, returns to the podcast this week to talk about oil.

    After the price of oil fell from its previous $100+/bbl highs to under $30/bbl in 2015, many declared dead the concerns raised by peak oil theorists. Headlines selling the "shale miracle" have sought to convince us that the US will one day eclipse Saudi Arabia in oil production. In short: cheap, plentiful oil is here to stay.

    How likely is this?

    Not at all, warns Berman. World demand for oil shows no signs of abating while the outlook for future production looks increasingly scant. And the competition among nations for this "master resource" will be much more intense in future decades than we've been used to.

    G7 Nations Agree To Phase Out Fossil Fuels

    Is this news for real?
    by Chris Martenson

    21

    Yesterday saw a promising headline: at a recent G7 gathering, the leaders apparently agreed to the impossible: cutting carbon emissions by 40%-70% by 2050.  The only real way to do this, obviously, is to cut the use of fossil fuels. And that’s what they apparently agreed to do.

    At some point in the arriving future, there’s plenty of economic pain coming either to the taxpayers when the I.O.U.s come due, or to the hopeful retirees to whom much has been promised.

    When This Ends, Everybody Gets Hurt

    And the end is uncomfortably close
    by Chris Martenson

    Central bank credibility (as fictitious as that may be) is essential to maintaining the current narrative, BUT central banks are rapidly losing their credibility (which should have happened simply via deductive reasoning a long time ago) and the strains are showing.

    Their actions are increasingly wild and extreme, and it's our view that 2015- 2016 will mark the end of this long run of overly-ambitious central bankers and over-complacent markets.

    Keep Your Eyes On The Prize

    It’s always and ever about energy

    At the essential center of the framework of the Crash Course is the almost insultingly simple idea that endless growth on a finite planet is an impossibility.

    It is so simple it could be worked out by a clever 4 year-old and yet it must not be so simple because the main narrative of every economy in every corner of the globe rests on the idea of endless, infinite growth.

    What Happened to the Future?

    Hopes dim as global net energy per capita declines
    by Gregor Macdonald

    Tuesday, November 19, 2013, 6:15 PM

    22

    Improbably, the global economy has returned to growth over the past four years despite the ravages of a deflationary debt collapse, a punishing oil shock, ongoing constraint from debt and deleveraging, and stagnant global wages. The proof of this growth comes from the best indicator of all: the growth of global energy consumption.

    Growth is Obsolete

    Society needs to realize growth does not equal prosperity
    by JHK

    Despite the wishful thinking and happy-talk propaganda lighting up the media-space, we have arrived at the problematic point of the story: the end of cheap oil. The sad, stark fact is that oil is now too expensive to permit further expansion of economies and populations.
