    Art Berman: Like It Or Not, The Future Remains All About Oil

    And competition for it is heating up
    by Adam Taggart

    Art Berman, 40-year veteran in the petroleum production industry and respected geological consultant, returns to the podcast this week to talk about oil.

    After the price of oil fell from its previous $100+/bbl highs to under $30/bbl in 2015, many declared dead the concerns raised by peak oil theorists. Headlines selling the "shale miracle" have sought to convince us that the US will one day eclipse Saudi Arabia in oil production. In short: cheap, plentiful oil is here to stay.

    How likely is this?

    Not at all, warns Berman. World demand for oil shows no signs of abating while the outlook for future production looks increasingly scant. And the competition among nations for this "master resource" will be much more intense in future decades than we've been used to.

    Doug Noland: There Will Be No Way Out When This Market Bubble Bursts

    Financial assets will become toxic to hold
    by Adam Taggart

    This week Doug Noland joins the podcast to discuss what he refers to as the "granddaddy of all bubbles".

    He certainly shares our views that prices in nearly every financial asset class have become remarkably distorted due to central bank intervention, first with Greenspan's actions to backstop the markets in the late-1980's, and more recently (and more egregiously) with the combined central banking cartel's massive and sustained liquidity injections in the years following the Great Financial Crisis.

    All of which has blown the biggest inter-connected set of asset price bubbles the world has ever seen. Noland foresees tremendous losses as inevitable, as the central banks lose control of the monstrosity they have created:

    Lewis Dartnell: How To Rebuild The World From Scratch

    If society collapsed overnight, how would we re-create it?

    If our technological society collapsed tomorrow, what crucial knowledge would we need to survive in the immediate aftermath and to rebuild civilization as quickly as possible?

    Ask yourself this: If you had to go back to absolute basics like some sort of post-cataclysmic Robinson Caruso, would you know how to recreate an internal combustion engine? Put together a microscope? Get metals out of rock? Or produce food for yourself?

    Gene Guarino: Investing In Residential Assisted Living

    An opportunity that can help millions of aging seniors
    by Adam Taggart

    Wednesday, November 22, 2017, 1:03 AM

    Demographically speaking, the tremendous wave of aging Baby Boomers is an unprecedented event in our country's history. The sheer size of this age cohort, plus the concerningly-high level of financial unpreparedness for many of its members (which we wrote about at length last week in this report), will demand all sorts of new solutions be pioneered to address the needs of a massive number of aging seniors no longer in the workforce.

    Gene Guarino, founder of Residential Assisted Living Academy, joins the podcast this week to explain the model to Chris, as well as the ways that investors can get involved in this growing movement. Those with capital interested in "doing well by doing good" can participate in syndicates that own the residences, creating more inventory to expand this model to. The investment returns are attractive, as is being a part of a movement to offer more housing options to the fast-growing ranks of seniors looking to live with dignity.

    William Rees: What’s Driving The Planet’s Accelerating Species Collapse?

    Spoiler alert: It's us
    by Adam Taggart

    Wednesday, November 15, 2017, 8:23 PM

    Today's podcast guest is bioecologist and ecological economist Dr. William Rees, professor emeritus of the University of British Columbia’s School of Community and Regional Planning. Rees is best known for his development of the "ecological footprint" concept as a way to measure the demand a particular population places on the environmental resources it needs to survive.

    Since the beginning of modern agriculture (around 1800), human activity has increased demand on planetary resources at an exponential rate. More energy has been expended — and more resources consumed — in the past 40 years than in all of human existence beforehand. That is placing a greater and greater strain on ecosystems that are now dangerously depleted.
