    There’s no doubt that money is important. There’s good reason why most of us devote a huge percentage of our lives to pursuing it.

    But there’s much about money that is misunderstood.

    Bizarro World: The Herd Has Truly Gone Mad

    You're not crazy. The world we now live in is.

    Men, it has been well said, think in herds; it will be seen that they go mad in herds, while they only recover their senses slowly, and one by one. ~ Charles Mackay (1841) Like me, you may often feel gobsmacked when looking at the world around you. How did things get so screwed up?…

    Executive Summary

    • Best practices in cost-accounting from the FIRE movement
    • The appeal of the 4% annual expense strategy
    • Life hacks in extreme frugality
    • The Peak Prosperity community shares its collective wisdom

    If you have not yet read Part 1: Extreme Frugality, available free to all readers, please click here to read it first.

    What if it were possible to uncouple from the ‘rat race’ and thereby regain a big portion of your time to use as you please?

    I assume everyone would find that desirable.  Time would open up for one to volunteer, travel, get in shape, meditate, sleep or do whatever you desire.

    There’s a well-established movement underway the goes by the acronym FIRE, which stands for Financial Independence Retire Early.  It’s not for everybody, and has a ton of pros and cons, and I’m not advocating that anybody blindly adopt FIRE as their framework, although some of you may already pursue it and that’s fine.

    I am saying that the movement has put a lot of thoughtful time into managing the income and expense parts of life and it has a lot of very practical advice to follow if one wishes.

    My role is to set the stage. I’ve spent a huge amount of time reading blogs, finding resources, and condensing the learnings to save you time.

    And what I’ve learned is…

    If you prefer to listen to the author read this article, Click Here. We didn’t have a lot growing up, as my mom had to single-parent three kids. Most anything I wanted required disciplined frugality. I bought my first fly rod from Orvis at the age of 13, which took the better part of a…

    Turd Ferguson: The Highs In Gold Are Ahead Of Us

    The reasons to own it never changed & are now more important than ever
    by Adam Taggart

    With the world re-entering a period of greater economic instability, with the central banks painted into a corner, with global stocks looking weaker by the day, the price of gold is starting to shine again.

    The yellow metal has recently hit all-time highs priced in a number of world currencies (the dollar not among them…yet).

    Is this a short-term result of ‘risk-off’ fever as the markets have stumbled, to be undone during the next rally in stocks? Or are we seeing the beginnings of a more fundamental re-pricing of gold (and silver), as investors wake up to the currency risks created by more than quintupling the world money supply within less than a decade while simultaneously buring the economy under trillions of newly-minted debt?

    Craig Hemke, better known by his nom-de-plume, Turd Ferguson, explains why gold looks like it finally has a brighter future ahead.

    The Company Store

    Leaves almost nothing to live on
    by Chris Martenson

    The scam enabled by today’s financial ““markets”” coupled with lots of easy cheap credit flowing to big monied interests is every bit as egregious as the company store of old; only today’s victims are mostly blind to the way that the system is rigged against them.

    Run this scam long enough and one day we’ll discover that the banks and their proxy agents — private equity funds, hedge funds, endowments, and family offices, etc — own all of the productive farmland, all of the mines, all of the oil wells, all of the timberland, and every other means of primary wealth production.

    Living With Integrity

    It's time to choose a new direction
    by Adam Taggart

    Every so often, our work in the premium side of PeakProsperity.com is deemed so important that our paying subscribers request we share it with the general public. Last week's 'Off The Cuff' podcast received so many of these requests that we are releasing it to all here.

    In last week's Off The Cuff podcast, Chris delivered a very personal message about how we each decide to live our lives.

    A growing number of people are watching the “prosperity” around them — record high asset prices, record-low unemployment, new technologies, etc — and yet feeling that we're making the wrong trade-offs as a society. All that wealth is flowing into fewer and fewer pockets, ecosystems are faltering and an alarming number of species are dying off, depression rates (especially among the youth) are skyrocketing.

    The One True Thing

    Until you understand it, it will rule your life

    Until you see clearly how the rules of society work, you will be trapped within a system of control.

    What you mistake for reality is instead a fabricated simulation, designed to keep you trapped right where the system wants you.

    Next Stop: Recession!

    We've arrived at the end of the line
    by Chris Martenson

    We've enjoyed years of “recovery” since the Great Financial Crisis by literally papering over our problems with newly-printed money, instead of addressing their root causes.

    But we've now arrived at the awkward part of the story; when all of our prior mistakes finally catch up with us, and the plot heads in a much darker direction.
