    Off The Cuff: Why The Government Allows Corporate Rackets

    There's just too much money in play
    by Adam Taggart

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

    • The Impact Of Natural Disasters
      • There are always surprise ramifications
    • Unequal Oversight
      • Corporations skate free while individuals get nailed
    • Why The Government Allows Corporate Rackets
      • There's just too much money in play
    • Where Is The Tipping Point?
      • When does the abused populace say "No more!"

    The government is not famous for its efficiency, or for its fairness. In many cases, that's intentional — particularly when you look at the incentives in play. Charles explains why our crony capitalist system is allowed, and even protected from enforcement: it's simply too cheap for corporations to influence government policy, regulation and oversight.

    What Could Pop The Everything Bubble?

    A crisis that can't be solved by just printing more dollars

    The policy of creating trillions in new currency and buying trillions in assets has inflated an 'Everything' Bubble — a bubble in all the asset classes being supported or purchased by central banks and their proxies.

    Many observers wonder: What, if anything, can pop this?

    Brien Lundin: If They Don’t Want You To Own It, You Probably Should

    The wisdom (and challenges) of owning safe haven assets
    by Adam Taggart

    One of the most perplexing mysteries to us is that right as the Federal Reserve embarked on QE3 — which was a huge, enormous, $85 billion a month experiment — commodities began a multiyear decline within two weeks of that announcement. Concurrently, the world’s central banks plunged the world into steeply negative real interest rates, a condition that has almost always resulted in booming commodity prices — but not this time. Today, the ratio between commodity prices and equities is at one of, if not the most, extreme points in history.

    To explain that gap, we talk this week with Brien Lundin, publisher of Gold Newsletter and producer of the New Orleans Investment Conference (where Chris and Adam are speaking on Oct 25-28):

    Banks Are Evil

    It's time to get painfully honest about this
    by Adam Taggart

    Saturday, March 18, 2017, 12:05 AM

    69

    I don't talk to my classmates from business school anymore, many of whom went to work in the financial industry.

    Why?

    Because, through the lens we use here at PeakProsperity.com to look at the world, I've increasingly come to see the financial industry — with the big banks at its core — as the root cause of injustice in today's society. I can no longer separate any personal affections I might have for my fellow alumni from the evil that their companies perpetrate.

    And I'm choosing that word deliberately: Evil.

    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:

    Harry Dent: Stocks Will Fall 70-90% Within 3 Years

    Creating the buying opportunity of a lifetime
    by Adam Taggart

    Economist and cycle trend forecaster Harry Dent sees crushing deflation ahead for nearly every financial asset class. We are at the nexus of a concurrent series of downtrends in the four most important predictive trends he tracks.

    Laying out the thesis of his new book The Sale Of A Lifetime, Dent sees punishing losses ahead for investors who do not position themselves for safety beforehand. On the positive side, he predicts those that do will have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to buy assets at incredible bargain prices once the carnage ends (and yes, for those of you wondering, he also addresses his outlook for gold).
