    Global deaths from covid-19 are on the wane. Most countries and states are starting to remove lockdown restrictions. And now we’re starting to see medical claims that the SARS2 virus is losing potency.

    Off The Cuff: Waking Up To A Changed World

    Covid has unleashed decades-worth of transformation all at once
    by Adam Taggart

    In this week’s Off The Cuff podcast, Chris and Wolf Richter discuss:

    • How covid has accelerated decades-worth of change
    • Why industries & social behavior are permanently affected
    • It will take years for the new landscape to stabilize
    • Why the economic pain and inequality will lead to greater social unrest

    Covid-19 has forced an immediate and permanent transformation of the global status quo, and we are in the early stages of understanding exactly how. But it is becoming clear that the pains involved will not be over quickly and that things will take years to stabilize.

    Wolf explains how everything from jobs, to home prices, to social behavior, to financial assets will continue to be buffeted well into 2021, and how the actions of the Federal Reserve are exacerbating the complaints of injustice that underlie the multiplying protests around the nation.

    Garbage ‘Science’: Be Wary Of What You’re Being Told

    by Adam Taggart

    Why are we still being given such poorly-constructed and shoddy results by our science ‘experts’? By this time, we should have a plethora of rigorous, peer-reviewed studies giving us clear, dependable answers we can use to create smart health policy decisions.

    But instead, we’re still being fed a daily diet of garbage ‘science’.

    Grim Milestone: 100k+ US Coronavirus Deaths

    And over 350,000 worldwide

    Whether or not we as a society can agree on the health risks of covid-19 or whether the national lockdowns it has triggered are worth the resulting economic damage, hopefully we can all agree that the global death toll from the pandemic is tragic.

    Meanwhile, battle lines are being drawn between those arguing for vigilance against a second infection wave and those skeptical of the severity of the virus and the rationale for curtailing economic activity and personal freedom.

    REPLAY VIDEO: ‘Ask Anything’ Q&A Webinar

    Watch Chris & Adam field *more* questions from PP subscribers
    by Adam Taggart

    Sunday, May 24, 2020, 6:45 AM

    12

    Here’s the replay video of Friday’s “Ask Anything” Coronavirus/Market-Meltdown Q&A webinar #3.

    Why is this restricted to Peak Prosperity’s premium subscribers? Two main reasons:

    One — we expect a number of our answers to be our ‘best guesses’ given the incomplete data available. We don’t feel it appropriate to put that kind of speculation out into the public domain.

    And Two — one of the many benefits of premium membership is closer access to the experts on this site.

    If you’re not yet a premium member but would like becoming one and watch the webinar, click here to subscribe.

    And if you choose not to enroll, that’s completely fine. We’ll still continue producing our free daily videos/etc for as long as these historic challenges we face remain fluid.

    cheers,

    Adam & Chris

    It’s been a while since Chris and I have been able to squeeze in a real-time conversation with our premium users, so we’re going to hold a 1-hour live “ask anything” Q&A webinar this weekend on Saturday, May 23 at noonET/9amPT.

    Second Waves Of Coronavirus Infections Are Pretty Much Guaranteed

    It appears 'the hammer & the dance' will be with us for a long time

    Even after extended lulls in cases, they’re finding that opening social movement back up results in flare-ups in new covid-19 clusters.

    It’s quite possible that these second waves will be followed by third and fourth waves, as a growing number of scientists worry that the coronavirus may never go away — as it can hide in asymptomatic carriers and because it mutates so rapidly that a permanent vaccine may not be realistic.
