    Inflation is a hot topic right now. The $trillions in fresh worldwide monetary and fiscal stimulus are causing the price of nearly everything we depend on to rise sharply in price.

    So here are 29 steps that anyone can follow to help insulate their home budget against the threat of rising prices.

    And while these steps save money, they don’t sacrifice quality of life. No one (including me!) wants to lower their living conditions if they don’t have to.

    Many people dream about homesteading on some level.

    While having a larger parcel of land is often part of that dream, it’s not essential. You can accomplish many homesteading projects while living in the city or the suburbs.

    2021 is Going to be Rough!

    Or - what does a falling dollar have to do with homesteading?

    We’re entering a period of volatility and uncertainty.

    Like myself and my fiancée Evie, many have come to the (proper) conclusion that the best way to hedge their bets is to build up their homestead, and make it more resilient.

    We’ve really thrown ourselves at this project this year and it’s been both challenging and rewarding.

    Make no mistake.  You really should be thinking about growing your own food and building your soil, too.

    It’s going to be rough going for a while.

    When our main institutions can’t rally around evidence or compassion when their own citizens’ lives are on the line, you know the end of the old order is near. Though the path transitioning into what comes next will highly likely be turbulent.

    So what can we do to hasten the end of what’s not working for us, as well as to nurture and feed what is?

    Well, first start by…

    My Personal Formula For Success

    It can be yours, too

    Executive Summary

    • Hard Work
    • Persistence
    • Luck
    • Systems Thinking

    If you have not yet read Part 1: Collapse Is A Process, Not An Event, available free to all readers, please click here to read it first.

    Because I think in systems, I tend to fashion my projects in ways that they feed off of and interact with each other.

    As well, my systems view informs my sense of how things are going to turn out in the future which defines what I consider to be useful projects to pursue.

    I have a formula for success.  It works really well for me and I want to share it with you.

    Fair warning: not everyone is going to like it.

    Ready?  Here it is…

    How 30 years of gardening errors were fixed in 30 minutes

    Gardening and Integrity

    My 30 years of gardening badly suddenly fixed

    A great reskilling movement to go along with a back to the land movement, all driven by the twin realizations that not only is there an expiration date on the consumer culture but there’s a better life to be had too.  One that is more connected, more fulfilling, and more satisfying.

    Evie and I are already living that dream, as are many of you, and we feel like it’s time to bring that to the world.  This video is one of our ‘rapid prototypes’ towards that aim.

    Get Ready! Here’s Why Resilience Is More Important Than Ever

    If we don't get our story right, things will only get worse

    After 8 months of reporting only on the coronavirus pandemic, it’s high time to pivot and look at the other major trends that will shape the next several decades of our lives, as many of them will have just as much impact — or more — than covid-19.

    In this video, Chris makes the argument for pursuing *resilience* vs growth — both in our individual lives as well as a society.

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

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

    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.
