    Should You Relocate To A More Resilient Area?

    What factors to look for when considering relocating

    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

    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

    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.

    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

    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…

    You’re Likely A Lot Less Prepared For Crisis Than You Realize

    Lessons from the recent rash of natural disasters

    It seems as if Mother Nature is waking up. Either she's trying to send humans an important warning, or perhaps she's just out to kill us all.

    Massive storms across the globe, earthquakes, and collapsing ecosystems all combine to remind us that we are indeed intimately connected to our planet's natural systems. And that our well-being rests on staying on Mother Nature's good side.

    Well, Mother Nature has seemed pretty pissed at us of late. Her recent punishments should be taken as a disciplinary wake-up call.

    Failure To Communicate

    The mass media still doesn't "get" the resilience movement
    by Adam Taggart

    Tuesday, July 18, 2017, 1:06 AM

    The mass media simply doesn't have an established reference point for the concerned citizen who, through education and foresight, decides to take prudent steps today to reduce their future vulnerability while increasing their level of personal prosperity.

    So, movements like ours get shunted into the existing constructs they do know, pretty much all of which exist on the "fringe".

    Learning From The TV (Imagine That!)

    Shows offering lessons in resilience
    by Adam Taggart

    Amidst the vast sea of cable-network detritus, every so often there's a show or two that I find worthwhile — either for entertainment or for learning something.

    Recently, there are two shows I'm currently enjoying that deliver on both counts. And very surprisingly, they're "reality TV" — a genre I usually associate as the worst of the worst when it comes to low-quality programming. But I'm finding I'm learning some useful lessons from these two series, and I thought I'd take a moment to share my observations for those who might want to tune in and see for themselves.
