    “We are on the precipice of the greatest retirement crisis in the history of the world. And that makes perfect sense because, first of all, we have the largest elderly population in the history of the world.

    Just focusing on the United States: our elderly are woefully unprepared to retire. And in the decades to come we will witness millions of elderly American's, Baby Boomers and others, slipping into poverty. 'Too frail to work, too poor to retire' will become the new normal for many elderly Americans.”

    So warns pension fraud whistleblower Ted Siedle.

    Are You Infuriated Yet?

    You should be. I certainly am...
    by Chris Martenson

    Both the pension and health care crises are infuriating and self-inflicted wounds.

    We could have avoided them by making wiser choices in the past. We didn't. We could limit their damage by making better choices today. We almost assuredly won't.

    Anybody who studies the system and its math comes to the same conclusion: the corporations have all the power and they are misusing it for private gain.

    An easy prediction to make is that this simmering anger of the populace is going to start boiling over more violently in the coming years. Welcome to the Age of Fury.

    Permanent impairment of capital is the cardinal sin of investing.

    Well, today's markets present a clear and present danger of coming capital impairment for those who don't take prudent action in advance of a market downturn. Don't be guilty of inaction.

    Off The Cuff: The Era Of Easy Money Is Over

    Debt-funded stimulus no longer yields an increase of GDP

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

    • Sovereign Sabre-Rattling
      • Suddenly, the world became a lot less safe
    • Market Misdirection
      • The central planners are doing their utmost to paint a positive picture
    • The Era Of Easy Money is Over
      • Debt-funded stimulus no longer results in an increase of GDP
    • How This All Will End
      • Exploring the likely pins that will pop this "mother of all bubbles"

    Chris and John look at the disconnect between world events and stock prices and urge folks not to misled: risk is high, and getting higher. There is *no* rational reason for the current price levels in financial markets — only gobs and gobs of liquidity being force-fed into the system by the world's central banks.

    But the data is increasingly showing that the era of "easy money" we've lived under since the Great Recession has reached its inevitable terminus. Shoving more debt into the system is no longer boosting GDP. We are now simply blowing bigger asset bubbles that will monumentally destructive when they burst — as they must.

    Off The Cuff: Dying From Debt

    Yet we're still trying to add more

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

    • The Coming Debt Explosion
      • Really? We're going to try to add more??
    • Pension Time Bomb
      • Going off sooner than most expect
    • The Evil Fed
      • It's policies are at the root of our economic predicament
    • The Revolution Is Brewing
      • Continental Europe will see the next iconoclast elected

     

     

    The only thing more frightening than the massive overburden of debt weighing on today's economy is the recent trial balloon that we need to add a bunch more in order to spark economic growth. Chris and John slam this wrongheaded thinking, and direct our attention to the damage the effects of already having too much debt is wreaking on our future prospects.

    Danielle DiMartino Booth: An Insider Exposes The Evils Of The Fed

    Killing savers, pensions & ultimately the bond market
    by Adam Taggart

    Danielle DiMartino Booth, former analyst at the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, has just released the book Fed Up: An Insider's Take On Why The Federal Reserve Is Bad For America.

    In it, Danielle describes how the Federal Reserve is controlled by 1,000 PhD economists and run by an unelected West Coast radical with no direct business experience. The Fed continues to enable Congress to grow our nation’s ballooning debt and avoid making hard choices, despite the high psychological and monetary costs. And our addiction to the "heroin" of low interest rates is pushing our economy towards yet another collapse.

    This reckless monetary policy pursued by the Fed has resulted in the rich elite becoming markedly richer, while savers and retirees are being absolutely gutted. All while risking a coming conflagration in the bond markets that will destroy a painful percentage of the world's financial wealth:

    Sorry Losers!

    How the Fed has screwed the many to benefit the few
    by Chris Martenson

    By its actions, the Federal Reserve has selected a precious few winners and many, many losers.  Sadly, you are highly likely to be one of the losers.

    Sorry!

    I'm one, too, if that helps soften the blow.

    But we have a lot of company.
