    The Festering Social Rift Over Pensions

    Why does he get to retire and I don't?
    by Adam Taggart

    Friday, December 14, 2018, 11:43 PM


    Most Americans will never be able to afford to retire.

    And now that the Everything Bubble is bursting and a return to economic recession appears increasingly probable within the next year or two, the disparty in prospects between the 35 million future pensioners and the rest of the workforce will become increasingly obvious.

    The danger here is of festering social discord. The majority, whom we already know will not be able to retire, will highly likely start regarding pensioners with envy and resentment.

    Off The Cuff: Why Does Our Society Refuse To Learn From Its Past Mistakes?

    Our self-delusion is courting disaster
    by Adam Taggart

    Friday, September 21, 2018, 4:30 AM


    In this week's Off The Cuff podcast, Chris and John Rubino discuss:

    • Our Inability To Learn From The Past
      • Society is much less resilient because we keep making the same mistakes
    • The Litany Of Potential Future Calamaties
      • There's a growing risk too many will arrive at the same time
    • Currency Crises All Over The Globe
      • When will they start taking the dollar and Euro down with them?
    • The State Of Cryptocurrencies
      • Down nearly 80% since December. Where to next?

    Recorded last week as Hurricane Florence was just arriving at the North Carolina shore, John and Chris noted how our chronic vulnerability to hurricanes and our inability to change our real estate development approach in light of them is symbolic of our society's self-imposed courting of disaster.

    We could learn our lessons from the disasters we suffer, and adopt better behaviors afterwards. But we don't. We prefer to self-delude with magical thoughts that, despite the latest insult, we'll be spared in the future.

    David Stockman: The World Economy Is At An Epochal Pivot

    A 'Great Reset' approaches
    by Adam Taggart

    Friday, August 10, 2018, 11:00 PM


    David Stockman warns that the global economy has reached an "epochal pivot", a moment when the false prosperity created from $trillions in printed money by the world's central banks lurches violently into reverse.

    Stockman's main warning is that there's no bid underneath this market — that when perception shifts from greed to fear, the bottom is much farther down than most investors realize. In his words, it's "rigged for implosion".
    He predicts a Great Reset is imminent. One that, for those who see it coming and take prudent action today, will offer tremendous, perhaps once-in-a-lifetime, investment opportunity once the dust settles.

    Off The Cuff: Why Most Will Remain Unaware Until Its Too Late

    The masses are focused on the wrong signals
    by Adam Taggart

    Friday, August 10, 2018, 1:35 AM


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

    • The Folly Of Pursuing Infinite Growth On A Finite Planet
      • Limits simply matter
    • The Signs Of Limits Are All Around Us
      • Depleting resources, stagnating wages, weakening economies
    • Few See The Signs Though
      • The "noise" of politics, media & markets distracts the masses
    • Where To Direct Your Focus
      • What to watch to track the onset of the approaching crisis

    This week Chris gives a 30,000-foot view of the big predicaments facing our global society. Most of the signals of the arriving crises won't be tracked by most people — draining aquifers, species loss, declining net energy. The masses are only going to pay attention when the signaling media they focus on — the financial markets, the news reports, the unemployment rate, home prices  — start to show panic. By then, it will be far too late to avoid the unfolding pain.
