    Off The Cuff: No More Financial Crises “In Our Lifetime”

    Did Janet Yellen really just say that???
    by Adam Taggart

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

    • Market Jitters
      • What will happen if the central banks turn off the money?
    • No More Financial Crises "In Our Lifetime"
      • Did Janet Yellen really just say that???
    • Our States Are Falling Into Bankruptcy…
      • Illinois, Connecticut, Maine & more
    • While The Banks Get Even Fatter
      • Income from excess reserves to rise to $50 Trillion by 2019

    This week, Chris takes a moment to share his thoughts in depth on where we are in the global debt saga. The overhang is getting worse, growth is not riding to the rescue as hoped, and the central banks are running out of both smoke and mirrors to keep the game continuing. Should the $200 billion monthly bonanza of central bank liquidity start decreasing — as is now being increasingly discussed — expect markets to go south quickly.

    Off The Cuff: The Approaching Minsky Moment

    The world is unprepared for the reset heading our way
    by Adam Taggart

    In this week's Off The Cuff podcast, Chris and Mish Shedlock discuss:

    • A Study In Failure Of The State
      • Chris shares his on-the-ground observations from So. America
    • It Can Happen Here
      • Mish shares his on-the-ground observations from Illinois
    • Virtually All The Macroeconomic Data Is Miserable
      • Yet the Fed & the markets are acting like everything's great
    • The Approaching Minsky Moment
      • It's a matter of if, not when

    This week's Off The Cuff discussion is an interesting one. Both Chris and Mish have front-row seats to two failing governments — Chris in Argentina, and Mish in Illinois. It feels to them like they are getting a preview of the economic pain soon to come to the rest of the world.

    Both are *very* concerned that citizens and investors across the globe are being duped by the (lack of) signals and messages today's ""markets"" are providing. Looking at the steady drumbeat of bad & worsening macroeconomic data, as well as the immense gap between fundamentals and asset prices, Chris and Mish are as confident as they have ever been that a massive painful reset is nigh. But too many of our leaders, and too much of the public, remain complacent/ignorant (willfully or not) regarding this risk. 

    Their conclusion? The world is woefully unprepared for the Minsky moment headed its way.

    The Pension Time Bomb

    Devastating shortfalls are manifesting everywhere
    by Chris Martenson

    Among the many losers picked by the Fed (in favor of rewarding a very tiny and wealthy minority), perhaps the greatest victims are pensions.

    Pensions have to make a couple of key assumptions.  One is how long you expect your cohort of pensioners to live. The second is the rate of return on the funds.  On both counts, pensions have been wrong, and wrong again.

    People keep living longer and pension fund returns keep underperforming.
