    Economic Shockwaves

    How the coronavirus is impacting our future
    by Adam Taggart

    Small/medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) like your local restaurant, dry cleaner, bookstore and building contractor are being hit especially hard by the coronavirus, as they don’t have the reserves to withstand the many weeks of no income the lockdown is placing them under. Many of them have already laid off their employees. Many may never reopen.

    The jaw-dropping severity of this job carnage can already be seen in last week’s unemployment numbers. Claims spiked up to 3.3 million — nearly 6x higher(!) than the worst week of the Great Financial Crisis.

    So what impact will this all have? What will the rest of 2020 be like?

    ‘Ask Anything’ Coronavirus+Markets Live Q&A Webinar #4

    Airing TONIGHT, Friday, Mar 27th @ 7:30pmET/4:30pmPT

    Chris and I just discovered we have a free window of time tonight and will be holding another 1-hour live “ask anything” Q&A webinar this evening, Friday, Feb 27 at 7:30pmET/4:30pmPT.

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

    One — we expect a number of our answers to be our ‘best guesses’ given the incomplete data available. We don’t feel it appropriate to put that kind of speculation out into the public domain.

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

    If you’re not yet a premium member but would like becoming one and watch the webinar, click here to subscribe.

    And if you choose not to enroll, that’s completely fine. We’ll still continue producing our free daily videos/etc for as long as the outbreak remains fluid.

    cheers,

    Adam & Chris

    Market Mayhem Update: Is It Safe To Re-Enter?

    We put this question to Peak Prosperity's endorsed financial advisor

    After last week’s continued meltdown, stocks rebounded sharply earlier this week, with Tuesday’s gains setting an all-time one-day record for both point and percentage gain.

    Questions we’re now hearing from PP.com readers over the past few days include:

    • Given the announced QE and $2 trillion stimulus package, is the bottom now in?
    • With the news that physical supply of gold is “running out”, what does that mean for gold & silver prices? For the mining stocks?
    • What steps should investors like me be taking now?

    To answer these questions, I just recorded another brief interview with the lead partners at New Harbor Financial, the financial advisor Peak Prosperity endorses.

    The Beginning Of The End

    Get ready for massive inflation
    by Adam Taggart

    After so much time cautioning about and preparing for the end of the Everything Bubble, it feels otherworldly to be finally confronted with the actual end of “what was.”

    It’s really here. This isn’t a dress rehearsal. The curtain has gone up and the show has started.

    I find myself alternating between excitement and deep anxiety. Maybe several times in the same hour.

    Excitement because this is a historic moment, one that offers us all a chance to reform things for the better. Deep anxiety because there are some very dark outcomes that are open possibilities.

    I’m mainly writing today to warn you of the all-too-likely… (Enroll now to continue reading)

    VIDEO: The Coronavirus Is The Pin Popping The ‘Everything Bubble’

    This will be an extinction-level event for many players

    For years, Peak Prosperity has been raising a loud warning of the ‘Everything Bubble’ that the world’s central banks have blown in global asset prices.

    Over that time, we’ve debated with hundreds of economic experts on what will be the trigger to “pop” this mania.

    Well, now we’re finding out.

    Bankruptcies are set to ripple across industries like wildfire. Mass layoffs will return with a vengeance. For certain industries — like travel, hospitality, and the shale oil drillers — this will be an extinction-level event for many players.
