    Into The Light: 8 Steps For Surviving What’s Coming

    You'll be a lot better off later for taking these actions now
    by Chris Martenson

    Executive Summary

    • The implications of the Federal Reserve’s massive mistakes
    • The (many) indicators I am watching most closely right now
    • The 8 steps I recommend *everyone* take right now
    • Additional steps I’ve been taking to prepare in my own life over the past 3 months

    If you have not yet read Part 1: Into Darkness: Where The Fed Is Leading Us, available free to all readers, please click here to read it first.

    I’ve been tracking full-time the macro developments driving the world for nearly 20 years now, and at no point have I been this concerned where things are headed. And that’s saying a *lot*.

    So I’ve produced the following hour long video walking you through in great detail the key indicators that worry me and suggest a breakdown of the status quo is a lot closer at hand than most folks imagine.

    I don’t like to simply sound the alarm; I much prefer to offer positive actions we can take to protect ourselves from the coming challenges — and perhaps prosper through them, given the prudent steps we take now. So I give recommendations for 8 steps everyone should be taking now, and share additional preparations I’ve been making in my own life over the recent three months.

    Why is this restricted to Peak Prosperity’s premium subscribers? Two main reasons:

    One — we reserve our best analysis and most directive guidance for the paying members whose financial support makes operating this site possible. Also, I’m willing to share my “best guess” thinking with this private audience on the really tricky questions facing us; I wouldn’t feel comfortable having that level of speculation out in the public realm.

    And Two — one of the many benefits of premium membership is closer access to the experts on this site.

    Building The Foundations Of A Resilient Life

    Executive Summary

    What I don’t put out in public, besides my daily reminder to “start a garden,” is that I foresee a particularly strong possibility that things will get a lot worse before they get better.

    Social unrest, increases in crime, and food shortages — dangers like that.

    So to shield myself and those I care about, the biggest new initiative I’m undertaking in my own personal life is….

    What’s Possible?

    The key question to ask when looking to replace the status quo
    by Chris Martenson

    Monday, December 2, 2019, 5:26 PM


    As we look at the multiplying signs of failure across our economy and the environment, society is slowing realizing that we need to start doing things differently if we want a future to be proud of. Those awakening to this are asking: What should we do?

    I think a better question to ask is: What’s possible?

    That’s the question that has been waking me up early in the morning for the past few weeks.

    Should You Relocate To A More Resilient Area?

    What factors to look for when considering relocating
    by Adam Taggart

    Friday, November 8, 2019, 3:39 PM


    Likely a symptom of growing social unease, we’re seeing a surge in interest amongst our readership in relocation.

    Many are folks living in urban and suburban areas worried that local resources and/or rule of law will not hold up well during a serious economic crisis, civil disorder or natural disaster.

    Others have watched Peak Prosperity readers successfully transition to more resilient destinations or even build their own self-sufficient homesteads.

    Specifically, we’re seeing a hunger for guidance on the key factors to assess when asking:

    • How resilient is my current location?
    • Should I relocate?
    • If so, where to? And what criteria should I prioritize in making my decision?

    The Importance Of A Resilient Life

    In the end, it will mean all the difference
    by Chris Martenson

    Wednesday, October 9, 2019, 4:00 AM


    My business partner Adam and I recently met with a successful business owner whose career began on Wall Street. The kind of guy who should be rooting for the system, because it has treated him well.

    Instead, he was quite nervous about the sustainability of the status quo. “Starting in August,” he said, “Maybe it was the Amazon catching fire, maybe it was the negative interest rates – I don’t know for certain what the trigger was – but something has snapped.”

    I agree. Because I feel it, too.

    Resilient Relocation

    Here's our "build it from the ground up" plan
    by Chris Martenson

    Friday, September 20, 2019, 6:02 PM


    Executive Summary

    • When relocation makes sense (and when it doesn’t)
    • Developing the vision & plan for your relocation destination
    • Creating community
    • Which incentives will drive success

    If you have not yet read Part 1: The Importance Of A Resilient Life, available free to all readers, please click here to read it first.

    Two weeks ago, I publicly revealed my plans to create a resilient living community. One that will offer me and other like-minded folks a beautiful place to live and positive cash flows.

    In good times, it can be used as a home, as a vacation destination, or simply a passive real estate investment. And if times get bad, it’s a fully-resilient retreat, ready to shelter you and your loved ones.

    The response to my announcement overwhelmed me. It clearly touched a nerve with thousands of people looking for a solution like this, hundreds of which have contacted me. In a week, dozens who want to participate will be meeting at my home in northern Massachusetts.

    Below, I’m sharing the process I’ve designed for this movement. The detailed vision. The requirements for the property we’re hunting for. The skills, attitudes and expertise I’m looking for when (very carefully) choosing who to accept into this community. The incentives for fostering the right group dynamics and discouraging the wrong ones. The financial realities.

    Read on if you’d like to learn more about this specific resilient relocation project, or if you’d like to integrate its insights into one of your own.

    Because if you wait to long to act, you’ll find that… (Enroll now to continue reading)

    At The End Of The Day, It’s All About Confidence

    And sentiment in the markets is now souring. Bigly.
    by Adam Taggart

    Friday, May 10, 2019, 3:00 PM


    We’ve been shining a bright light on the technical compression seen in the major stock indices, indicative that a major breakout move is coming — one we’ve argued is much more likely to happen to the downside.

    Well, with the recent fizzling of the principal storyline supporting the bullish narrative — an imminent trade deal with China  — our predicted downside breakdown finally occurred this week.

    Crisis Preparation: What To Do

    The key steps to take NOW, before the next crisis hits

    What To Do

    Broken models and bad ideas eventually catch up with you. That day is coming. As to when, I clearly don’t know.

    If there’s an outbreak of war with North Korea than that could easily precipitate the breakdown, especially if the conflict spreads across superpowers. That could happen at any time, so the lessons from the hurricanes is this; get ready now.

    Barring some sort of kinetic follies, the farthest I can see things carrying on as they have is until 2019 or 2020 when the profound lack of investment in oil will show up as an oil supply shortfall that will result in much higher oil prices. Those higher prices will run smack into ~$250 trillion of global debt and ~4x that amount of un(der)funded liabilities. I covered that thesis in this report, which is worth a re-read (or a first read in case you haven’t already).

    The global equity markets are floating along on a sea of liquidity which has allowed them to seriously depart from the underlying fundamentals and from any sense of risk. When neither fundamentals nor risk apply, you have a bubble on your hands.

    Bubbles are always in search of a pin. None of us can predict what that pin might be, but it’s out there.

    When the next downturn finally comes, it will be with the force of a hundred corrections denied. We’ll be falling from a much higher level of insanity and self-delusion. Once again we’ll discover that prosperity cannot be printed out of thin air. History doesn’t repeat, they say, but when it comes to bubbles it certainly does. They are always the same; they arise from too-easy credit.

    Here’s what I think everybody should do, regardless of circumstances…
