    by Adam Taggart

    Wednesday, March 15, 2017, 3:23 PM


    This is Part 2 of our podcast with social activist Mark Morey. (Part 1 can be heard here)

    Much of society's ills can be resolved through changing our behavior. Native populations are a rich resource of wisdom in doing so, as they had to address many of these same problems centuries ago. The question is: Will we take the time to listen?

    Mark Morey: Cultural Capital (Part 1)

    We have much to learn much from indigenous societies
    by Adam Taggart

    Tuesday, March 7, 2017, 5:46 AM


    Mark Morey returns to the podcast this week, for a deep dive into Cultural Capital, one of the more intangible and less understood of the 8 Forms Of Capital. PeakProsperity.com readers may remember Mark from his front-line reporting for us of the situation in Standing Rock as the confrontation there with the government first escalated.

    Cultural capital is rooted in society's values and traditions. Sadly, over the past few generations in the West, we have departed from the time-honored (and honed) customs and rituals of our ancestors, and adopted a much more "it's all about me" approach to life. 

    The result, argues Morey, is a populace that feels isolated an unfulfilled. Those age-old traditions and rites of passage developed for a reason. They gave our lives meaning, as well as instructed us on how to live. 

    Is there a way to recover some of that lost wisdom and sense of "fit" in life? Yes, Morey believes. And there's much the world's indigenous cultures can teach us.

    Learning From The TV (Imagine That!)

    Shows offering lessons in resilience
    by Adam Taggart

    Thursday, January 26, 2017, 1:28 AM


    Amidst the vast sea of cable-network detritus, every so often there's a show or two that I find worthwhile — either for entertainment or for learning something.

    Recently, there are two shows I'm currently enjoying that deliver on both counts. And very surprisingly, they're "reality TV" — a genre I usually associate as the worst of the worst when it comes to low-quality programming. But I'm finding I'm learning some useful lessons from these two series, and I thought I'd take a moment to share my observations for those who might want to tune in and see for themselves.

    Off The Cuff: The Global Flow Of Money

    It's determining the price of everything right now
    by Adam Taggart

    Thursday, January 5, 2017, 10:42 PM


    In this week's Off The Cuff podcast, Chris and Charles Hugh Smith discuss:

    • Cultural Capital
      • How will those around you react during a crisis?
    • The Fragility Within Our Centralized System
      • Lots of dependencies that can fail & bring the entire system to a halt
    • Musical Chairs
      • Who will have to eat the bad debts when the can can no longer be kicked?
    • The Importance Of Global Capital Flows
      • They're determining the price of everything

    As 2017 kicks off, Chris sits down with Charles to discuss some of the big themes likely to drive events in this new year. The two focus on the growing instability of our centralized systems — economic, energy and otherwise — and pay particular attention to the impact that the huge pool of money sloshing around the world is having on prices everywhere. Right now, that flood of capital — out of bonds and into stocks, the dollar, etc — is the primary driver of prices. Of course, this should make us ask: what will happen when those flows change direction? Or instead of continuing to grow, start receding?
