    My definition of an ALERT is when I encounter information that changes my actions.  I am now personally accelerating purchases, especially of mission-critical computer and other chip-based equipment.  I am now at a point where my farming needs and other household purchases are going to be accelerated based on the constellation of shortages that are now apparent.

    Bond Market Troubles Will Take Away The Fed’s Printing Press

    And it will happen this year, predicts money manager Bill Fleckenstein

    Those cheering today’s sky-high asset prices say they don’t worry because “the Fed has the market’s back”

    And they haven’t been wrong to-date. There’s no doubt that the Fed’s $trillions in monetary stimulus has pushed the prices of stocks, bonds, real estate and nearly every other asset class to all-time highs.

    But the Fed’s ability to print money with impunity may not last forever. In fact, veteran money manager Bill Fleckenstein warns it could end this year.

    “This Looks Like The Market Peak”

    So declares macro analyst Wolf Richter

    Stocks, houses, commodities, Bitcoin – the price of nearly everything is up double digits vs last years pre-coronavirus highs.

    Have the trillions in stimulus ushered in a new bull market in, well, everything? Or have they helped blow the biggest asset price bubble in history?

    Macro analyst Wolf Richter suspects the latter. And he doesn’t think we have much time left before it bursts.

    Off The Cuff: Has Society Lost Its Backbone?

    Have we lost the mettle to address adversity when necessary?
    by Adam Taggart

    In this week’s Off The Cuff I sit down with David Collum to discuss:

    • The looming fiscal & social crises caused by underfunded pensions
    • Is everything in America is now “Too Big To Fail”?
    • Investing for a future of secular inflation
    • The dangers of cancel culture & the “woke” movement

    Never short on strong opinions, Cornell chemist and pontificator extraordinaire Dave Collum joins us this week to opine on a wide spectrum of topics.

    Dave is very concerned about the trajectory America and much of the world is headed, careening down a slope that history shows ends in economic malaise, social discord and currency collapse. As a society, we seem to have lost our backbone; every politician is willing to sacrifice tomorrow’s prosperity for today’s quick fix, and the populace only rewards that can-kicking behavior.

    When everyone is so unwilling to face consequences they are making a devil’s bargain: receiving a carefree today in exchange for a tomorrow filled with much larger problems that refuse to be postpones any longer. Are we ready for that reckoning?

    For any problems they face, governments all over the world are now conditioned to simply deficit spend or issue new $trillions in ‘thin air’ currency.

    So how in danger are we of that recklessness leading to a breakdown of the entire system?

    Respected financial analyst Michael Every suspects we’re closer than most realize.

    Off The Cuff: ‘Don’t Believe For A Second That The Government Has Your Back’

    Fed-watcher Axel Merk decodes yesterday's FOMC announcements
    by Adam Taggart

    In this week’s Off The Cuff I sit down with Axel Merk to discuss:

    • The implications of yesterday’s announcements by the Federal Reserve
    • How much does the Fed truly care about inflation?
    • Is the Fed willing to sacrifice the purchasing power of the USD in pursuit of its dual mandate?
    • Why resilience remains the right strategy, in both your finances and overall lifestyle

    Expert Federal Reserve-watcher Axel Merk joins the program this week to react in real-time to yesterday’s latest announcements by the FOMC and Fed Chair Jerome Powell.

    He and I discuss the Fed’s apparent lack of concern about both raising bond yields and building inflation concerns.

    As far as Fed Chair Jerome Powell claims, the current easing mode of easy monetary policy is going to continue for a lot longer.

    And for those concerned that the repercussions of those policies are having increasingly disastrous effect on the vast majority of the American public, Axel warns that it’s folly to believe the Fed is working in their interests…

    Inflation is a hot topic right now. The $trillions in fresh worldwide monetary and fiscal stimulus are causing the price of nearly everything we depend on to rise sharply in price.

    So here are 29 steps that anyone can follow to help insulate their home budget against the threat of rising prices.

    And while these steps save money, they don’t sacrifice quality of life. No one (including me!) wants to lower their living conditions if they don’t have to.
