    Off The Cuff: The Party’s Over

    Terrible data is finally ending our hopium addiction

    In this week’s Off The Cuff podcast, Chris and Mish Shedlock discuss:

    • Next Up: A Currency War With China?
    • Recession Warning
    • A War With Iran, Too?
    • More Cracks In Europe

    The self-delusional “Everything is awesome and getting better!” narrative that has pushed markets ever higher for the past years is suddenly unravelling. The current China tariffs will undo any remaining salubrious impact of the Trump tax cuts, a global recession appears underway, and — seriously — are we about to go to war with Iran??

    • The great global slowdown

    Off The Cuff: How The Game Ends

    Why hard assets will be the last man standing
    by Adam Taggart

    Thursday, April 25, 2019, 5:38 PM

    In this week's Off The Cuff podcast, Chris and John Rubino discuss:

    • Moral Hypocracy
      • One set of rules for the elites, another for the rest of us
    • Inflation Is Coming
      • The Fed should be careful what it wishes for
    • Uncharted Territory
      • All countries are pursuing extreme policies right now
    • How The Game Ends
      • Hard assets will be the last man standing

    In this week's discussion, John Rubino gives a useful revisitation of why owning hard assets is so important. While the exact path we take is still unpredictable, the endgame is increasingly clear: the world's current fiat currencies are losing their purchasing power at an accelerating rate.

    Off The Cuff: The Current System Is A Servitude Trap

    You need to escape it to prosper
    by Adam Taggart

    Thursday, April 11, 2019, 8:43 AM

    9

    In this week's Off The Cuff podcast, Chris and Charles Hugh Smith discuss:

    • Our Current System Is A Servitude Trap
      • You need to escape it to prosper
    • The Rich Own The Assets & The Rest Own The Debt
      • Which is why its so hard to move up socio-economically these days
    • Asset Bubbles Pevert Opportunity
      • Big lifedesicsions become much more speculative
    • The Scary Side of Facebook/Google Media Monoply
      • Private industry & the government sharing our data

    This was the podcast orginally planned to run last week, but we bumped it to rush to you the time-sensitve reveations from Art Berman regarding the Ghawar oil field depletion data.

    In *this* podcast, Chris and Charles Hugh Smith pull back the veil covering the architecture underlying today's society, exposing how the system is designed to trap us all in servitude to the parties running it. From how we're eductated, to the options available to us with our jobs and our money, to how our own personal data is increasingly being used to manipulate us — increasingly the only way to prosper in terms of wealth and well-being is to break from convention and operate outside of the system as much as possible.

    Off The Cuff: Twilight In The Desert Has Begun

    An oil engineer's dark take on the Ghawar oil field decline
    by Adam Taggart

    Tuesday, April 9, 2019, 4:45 PM

    In this week's Off The Cuff podcast, Chris and Art Berman discuss:

    • Is the Ghawar oil field truly in decline?
    • If so, what are the implications?
    • What other important revelations does the Saudi Aramco prospectus contain?

    In the light of the huge surprise contained in the recent Saudi Aramco prospectus, that Saudi Arabia's massive Ghawar “crown jewel” conventional oil field is in decline (currently at a maximum output of 3.8 million barrels per day vs the previous estimate of 5.8mbd), we rushed to interview seasoned petroleum geologist Art Berman on the news.

    Is he as concerned about the revelation as we are?

    Yes. In fact, he suspects the 3.8mbd is likely still an overly-exagerrated figure, and that the field's true max output is even lower.

    In his estimation, the fiction the world has been telling itself — that Peak Oil isn't real — is about to be rudely disproven. The recent (and much more expensive) shale bonanza will prove to be a short-lived distraction, and we'll soon be face-to-face with the predicament of how to power the global economy with less net energy.

    Wage growth, other factors, now pushing inflation higher
    by Adam Taggart

    In this week's Off The Cuff podcast, Chris and Axel Merk discuss:

    • Powell's Non-Message
      • He's trying to be as boring as possible to keep the markets placid
    • Rising Inflation
      • We may quickly go from “too little” inflation to “too much”
    • Good Times?
      • Many of the metrics the Fed looks at are still green
    • The Boeing Crash & Energy
      • Why one is related to the other

    Fresh off his own reaction to Jerome Powell's appearance on 60 Minutes, Chris sits down with Fed watcher Axel Merk to hear his seasoned perspective on the central bank's future moves:

    Off The Cuff: Further Exploring Our Collapse Trajectory

    by Adam Taggart

    Thursday, February 7, 2019, 3:31 PM

    5

    In this week's Off The Cuff podcast, Chris speaks on:

    • The Immorality Of Central Planning
      • The banks are stealing our future
    • The Poor 99.9%
      • The system is now geared solely for the 0.1%'s interests
    • Our Money Or Our Lives
      • The real damage is happening across our critical ecosystems
    • This Will End
      • Remember that collapse is a process. And local mileage may vary.

    Chris recorded this podcast shortly after completing his recent report on the in-process collapse occurring in the key systems around us. Economically, envrionmentally, socially — it's happening everywhere. Chris spend an hour exploring the collapse dynamic further, ending with this succinct prediction…

    Off The Cuff: The People Are Rising Up Against The Elites

    The working classes have hit their breaking point
    by Adam Taggart

    Friday, January 25, 2019, 8:12 AM

    7

    In this week's Off The Cuff podcast, Chris and Charles Hugh Smith discuss:

    • Class Warfare
      • Growing tenions between the rural/worker vs urban/financier classes
    • Why The Yellow Vest Movement Matters
      • It represents a populist anger brewing around the world
    • Financialization & Globalization Are The Disease
      • They give the elites tremendous advantage over everyone else
    • The Empire Is Striking Back
      • The global establishment is squashing unrest by every means it has

    Chris continues to track the Yellow Vest protests across France Europe because it's representative of a populist ire festering around the globe. Decades of financialization and globalization have created a parasitic elite class that is bleeding the working classes dry.

    France is emerging as ground zero for a rebellion against those elites. And the Establishment Empire is doing all it can to suppress the movement before it catches fire in other countries, as it is already threatening to elsewhere in Europe. How soon until we see folks don their own yelow vest in the US, UK, Canada and Australia?

    Off The Cuff: A Matter Of Desperation

    The Powers That Be are out of options that work
    by Adam Taggart

    Thursday, January 17, 2019, 9:23 AM

    24

    In this week's Off The Cuff podcast, Chris and James Howard Kunstler discuss:

    • Zig-Zag Markets
      • There's a war going to keep prices propped up
    • A Matter Of Desperation
      • The central planners are out of tricks
    • The Masses Are Getting Angry
      • And are turning their ire on those in control
    • Our Broken Political System
      • Furiously focusing on all the wrong issues

    Jim Kunstler returns to share his views on what's ahead in 2019. Like Peak Prosperity, he sees the coming year as one when the forces of reality start to re-exert themselves after a decade of magical thinking.

    Those in control of the system have juiced it as hard as they could for as long as they could, and now the limits to that 'extend-and-pretend' era are quickly becoming visible. And the bottom 99% is beginning to realize that not only was the “prosperity” of the post-GFC recovery largely fraudlent, but what there was of it went as spoils to the elites. Expect further social outrage like we're currently seeing in France to boil over into many other countries in the coming months.
