    In the end, it will mean all the difference

    My business partner Adam and I recently met with a successful business owner whose career began on Wall Street. The kind of guy who should be rooting for the system, because it has treated him well.

    Instead, he was quite nervous about the sustainability of the status quo. “Starting in August,” he said, “Maybe it was the Amazon catching fire, maybe it was the negative interest rates – I don’t know for certain what the trigger was – but something has snapped.”

    I agree. Because I feel it, too.

    Dude, Where's My Cash?

    The growing desperation for income
    by Adam Taggart

    A few months back, we issued a report, The Primacy Of Income, declaring the end of the era of capital gains.

    It's conclusion? Wealth accumulation over the next decade will be predominantly driven by income.

    Since issuing that report, developments have only served to underscore that prediction.

    A Primer On Investing For Inflation-Adjusting Income

    How to build sustainable passive investment income

    Executive Summary

    • Understanding the benefits and risks of the notable options for passive income:
      • Cash & Cash Equivalents
      • Bonds/Loans
      • Dividend-Yielding Stocks
      • Real Estate
      • Business Ownership Through Private Equity/Private Placements/Local Investing
      • Royalites
      • Annuities

    If you have not yet read Part 1: The Primacy Of Income, available free to all readers, please click here to read it first.

    “Financial independence” is defined by most as having enough passive income to cover all of your living expenses. While a worthy goal for all of us, even partially achieving that state will make your life tremendously less stressful than the hundreds of millions (in the US alone) who fall far short of it — and will only fall farther behind during the next deflationary wave when asset prices fall, job losses spike, and government subsidies become more scarce.

    In Part 1, we laid out the rationale for why investing for income is becoming more important than ever as the Era Of Gains draws to an end.

    Those who put in place a diversified portfolio of relatively low-risk passive income streams, inflation-adjusting and tax-advantaged wherever possible, should be much more financially resilient than the general masses after today's Everything Bubble ruptures.

    The good news is that there's a variety of options worth considering when constructing such a portfolio of income streams. Here in this primer, we identify many of the most noteworthy along with their general benefits and risks.

    The challenge, of course, comes in the application of this information. Which options are best for you, given your specific situation, needs, goals, and risk appetite?

    As always, let me make a few things absolutely clear. The information presented below is NOT personal financial advice and is provided for educational purposes only

    And as always, we recommend working with a professional financial adviser to build an investment plan customized to your own needs and objectives. (If you do not have a financial adviser or do not feel comfortable with your current adviser's expertise in the market risks we discuss here at PeakProsperity.com, consider scheduling a free consultation with our endorsed adviser)

    Suffice it to say, any investment ideas sparked by this report should be reviewed with your financial adviser before taking any action. Am I being excessively repetitive here in order to drive this point home? Good…

    With the above said, the primer below should give you plenty of food for thought for how you may wish to design your own income-generating portfolio.

    Let's begin with…

    The Inevitability Of DeGrowth

    Our current debt & energy orgy can't last much longer
    by charleshughsmith

    Even though we don't know precisely how the future will unfold, we know a few things about it.

    Simply put, debt-dependent consumption in a world in which wages stagnate for the bottom 90% and energy costs increase as demand outstrips supply is a system with only one possible end-point: collapse.
