    by Adam Taggart

    Every hour of every day, we’re bombarded by attempts to influence our behavior — what to buy, how to vote, what to click on next…

    And most of the time, we are completely oblivious to them.

    As humans, we have psychological triggers that, once activated, make us much more vulnerable to the schemes of marketers, politicians and anyone else looking to manipulate us — as well as to separate us from our freedoms and our money.

    Nobody understands the science of persuasion better than Dr. Robert Cialdini, famously known as “The Godfather of Influence”. In today video — which is one of my favorite interviews I’ve done so far — he identifies the specific techniques being used to pull our strings, and explains how to best defend against them.

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

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

    Friday, April 16, 2021, 9:44 AM


    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.

    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?

    Want To Invest In Farmland? Here’s How

    There are now more options than ever (without having farm the land yourself!)
    by Adam Taggart

    Friday, March 26, 2021, 10:36 AM


    Farmland is a “holy grail” asset class for many investors.

Smart farmers are now able to create superior business while healing the soil at the same time.

    So, how can you get access to this attractive asset class?

    Farmland investor Craig Wichner explains how in this week’s Market Update.

    So what happens when money stops being scarce because the world’s governments are mailing out checks, buying up bonds and stocks, forgiving debts, and generally foisting cash on anyone with a heartbeat and voter registration card?

    Well, then scarcity itself becomes scarce.
