    VIDEO: The Fed’s Evil Juggernaut

    Don't let it crush your future

    The US Federal Reserve is once again force-feeding liquidity into the system. At its fastest rate ever.

    The result? Record high stock prices whose valuations defy all logic.

    What’s wrong with that? Shouldn’t we just enjoy the party and be grateful for our rising 401ks?

    What’s wrong is that the Fed’s actions are dooming us. Their poisonous cocktail of endless cheap money and rock-bottom interest rates is hastening a terminal breakdown of the economy, while deliberately enriching a tiny cadre of elites to the ruin of everyone else.

    Nothing seems right anymore.

    In whichever direction we choose to look, things are unraveling at a quickening pace.

    Welcome to the Fourth Turning; and with it, a profound loss of trust in institutions and government.

    WTF: What The Fed?!?

    A video event with Mike Maloney, Grant Williams, Charles Hugh Smith and Chris & Adam

    Recently, Mike Maloney, Grant Williams, Charles Hugh Smith, Chris Martenson and Adam Taggart all convened to tackle the implications of the price distortions that central bank intervention has had on the financial markets.

    Back in 2018, each one of us was ringing a bell warning of a massive asset price bubble. 2019, however, only saw prices further shoot the moon (S&P up 28%, Nasdaq up 35%). And ever since ‘Not-QE’ was announced by the US Fed on Oct 8th, the rate of increase has only become more manic.

    Exactly WTF is going on?!?

    It sure didn’t take long for 2020 to get interesting. Iran The biggest development of the new year happened Thursday when the US military assassinated Qassem Soleimani, Iran’s most powerful figure after its Supreme Leader, in a surgical drone strike. This is an extremely serious action; one that Iran is highly likely to respond forcefully…

    • Why today’s ‘magnificent folly’ will unwind in the 2020s

    This next decade will be a banquet of consequences.

    Our misdeeds and mistakes will all be coming home to roost.

    I certainly hope you are  taking steps to prepare yourself for them. I certainly am.

    The subversion of our free and fair markets has resulted in the most radical, interventionist, large-scale social experiment ever run in the modern developed world.

    The early returns, unless you’re a member of the 0.1%, are dismal across the board.

    The 2020’s will see the unwinding of this magnificent folly. It’s collapse will be extremely painful for the vast majority of humanity.

    Good Riddance To The ‘Twenty-Teens’

    A decade best shunned & forgotten
    by Chris Martenson

    Friday, December 27, 2019, 1:36 PM

    28

    This is my last report from the good old “twenty-teens”.

    In some respects, they didn’t turn out at all like I thought they would. But in many others, exactly as predicted.

    But, given today’s systemic distortions and deformations, predicting the events of the next ten years will be much easier than it was for the twenty-teens. Largely because there’s little room left down the road to kick the can further.

    A Hot Mess

    Something is badly wrong with the financial market

    You wouldn’t know it from the ever-rising stock ““market””, but something is really wrong beneath the surface of the financial system.

    The Fed is lying about it, too. So is the mainstream financial press, unable to perform its most basic function of asking obvious questions and following them up with additional inquiry.

    Bubbles Are Brutal

    Nothing makes sense in their late stages
    by Chris Martenson

    Asset bubbles are brutal.

    The most difficult time to remain centered and focused is during their last stages as everyone around you is going nuts. Logic has been tossed out the window, sentiment is manic, and every narrative – the stories we hear and use to make sense of our world – is thoroughly ungrounded.

    Off The Cuff: The Fed’s ‘Complicated Mess’

    Dwindling options and a sickening repo market
    by Adam Taggart

    This week Chris sat down with Peak Prosperity’s favorite expert on the Federal Reserve, Axel Merk, to try to make sense of what’s going on with Fed policy.

    We’re rushing this podcast to you before the transcript is ready as the situation is so fluid this week. In the 48 hours since the recording of this interview, the Fed has announced it will keep interest rates unchanged for the time being, but will begin a massive increase to its rescue efforts in the repo market, committing to injecting $425 billion over the near future.

    That is a truly staggering sum and a clear sign of trouble in the banking system. Most likely, one or more big players are failing and, as a result, banks are becoming increasingly reluctant to lend to one another, even for very short durations.

    What does this all portend? Listen on…
