    1971: The Year That Changed Everything

    The trajectory of nearly every facet of our way of life shifted massively

    The year 1971 saw the trajectories of nearly every major trend relative to our way of life shift massively.

    This week’s guest experts, Ben Prentice and Collin, founders of WTFHappenedIn1971.com, explain how virtually all of these changes are a direct or indirect result of the monetary system “breaking” that year with the Nixon Shock and the end of the Bretton Woods System.

    Is High Inflation Now A Bigger Danger Than A Deflationary Crash?

    Is High Inflation Now A Bigger Danger Than A Deflationary Crash?

    What’s the more likely event at this point: a deflationary crash or runaway inflation?

    For a long time, Peak Prosperity co-founder Adam Taggart and I have hewed to the “Ka-POOM!” theory, which states that a major deflation will scare the central banks so badly that they overreact and pour too much liquidity into the system, thereby destroying it.

    Gold’s (And Silver’s!) Time Has Arrived

    Are you well-positioned for it?

    2020 has proven to be a year unlike any other. It has shaken our confidence in our economic, financial, political and social systems — proving them to be a lot less stable than we’d previously assumed.

    Gold’s re-pricing is reflecting that realization. The big question is: How much more uncertainty remains ahead?

    Brace For Impact!

    Key preparations to make with the remaining time available to you

    Executive Summary

    • Hard logic for hard assets
    • The role of “control” and why it will be field the collapse of the system will be fought on
    • Recent learnings from my own journey worth knowing
    • Why I am certain things will get darker before they improve

    If you have not yet read Part 1: A Serious Message From Chris Martenson, available free to all readers, please click here to read it first.

    I never thought that we’d be here.  It could have all unfolded so differently if society had made better choices.  It didn’t have to be this way.

    But here we are.

    My personal planning now revolves around these trends continuing:

    1. Money printing will continue and accelerate if they think it necessary
    2. SARS-CoV-2 will be poorly managed at the state level and even worse at the federal level

    I’ve seen these trends coming.  And I am not at all surprised by them.

    But deep down I am very concerned that our national “managers” (not leaders) are very close to doubling down so forcefully on their current failed policies that the entire system breaks — badly. For those similarly concerned, I share the key preparations I think are most important for you to take right now.

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

    One — we reserve our best analysis and most directive guidance for the paying members whose financial support makes operating this site possible. Also, given that some of this material is our “best guess” thinking or can be overly revealing of the details of my personal actions, I’m only willing to share that with this private audience. I wouldn’t feel comfortable having that level of speculative/private information out in the public realm.

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

    Market Update: Gold Hits $1800 – What’s Next?

    Gold just had one of its best-performing quarters ever

    It’s hard to find an asset class that has performed better in 2020 than gold and gold mining stocks.

    As we committed to last week, this week’s video focuses on the precious metals and the exceptional performance gold is exhibiting right now after many years of disappointing returns.

    ALERT: Reallocating (Some) Cash Due To Inflation Concerns

    A move from paper to tangible feels warranted
    by Adam Taggart

    This is an official Peak Prosperity ALERT. We don’t issue alerts very often — only when Chris or I are taking personal action in our own lives in response to recent developments.

    The last alert we issued was on January 23 in response to the concerning pandemic threat we identified (quite early and accurately, I may add). You know what followed after that.

    Well, today I took action in my own financial portfolio that I deem important enough to share with our premium subscribers.

    Specifically, I’m beginning the process of reducing my cash reserves — which have comprised the majority of my portfolio — and exchanging it for inflation-resistant assets.

    Why am I doing this now and what exactly am I exchanging this cash for?

    The trigger that caught my attention was…. (Enroll now to continue reading)

    What’s Causing The Gold & Silver Sell-off?

    And when will prices turn around?
    by Jeff Clark

    Most investors know that gold represents wealth. And that it can be one of the most effective hedges against economic and financial turmoil.

    It sure doesn’t feel that way right now. Not only has their volatility spiked, neither metal has logged a gain since the Coronavirus was first widely reported on January 1. As I write on March 17, gold is down about 1%, while silver has crashed 30%.

    Why are they performing so poorly? Are they really not crisis hedges?

    There are answers to these questions. And when one looks at history we can even get a hint about when it will all turn around.

    It sure didn’t take long for 2020 to get interesting.

This is an extremely serious action; one that Iran is highly likely to respond forcefully…
