    Ron Paul: We Are Reaching A Point Of No Return

    When the system will break no matter what the Fed tries
    by Adam Taggart

    Monday, November 6, 2017, 9:08 PM


    Dr. Ron Paul has long been a leading voice for limited constitutional government, low taxes, free markets, sound money, civil liberty, and non-interventionist foreign policies.

    As a multi-term member of Congress, Dr. Paul knows the players and policies responsible for the growing unfairness and inequality now rampant in society. He does not expect the offenders will reform willingly. Instead, he predicts the system will collapse under its own unsustainability — offering a rare and valuable chance then for more sound and fair solutions to prevail.

    It’s High Time For Action

    Get ready for disruption
    by Chris Martenson

    Executive Summary

    • Beware the coming reduction in global central bank money printing
    • The full-blown ecological emergency
    • Uncovering the hidden downside risks to the markets
    • Steps to take now

    If you have not yet read Part 1: Are You Infuriated Yet?available free to all readers, please click here to read it first.

    I keep circling back to the financial markets because they are the chief signaling agent for most people. As long as the markets are doing okay, people’s attention wanders away from our predicaments and towards believing in the dominant "all is fine" narrative.

    But, with the crystal-clear connection we see between asset prices and central bank money printing, prices in today's “markets” are really a creation of monetary policy. As a result, the signals the markets send us increasingly have no bearing on actual reality.

    Here’s a good example: McDonalds' stock is hitting new high after new high. This is a function of both the ever-rising markets but also of the company's own internal accounting hocus-pocus.

    This chart explains much:


    The red line tells us that MCD’s revenues are down a stunning 15% since 2014. The green line tells us that their stock price is UP an even more stunning 65% over the same time period.

    Meanwhile total debt of MCD’s has mushroomed from $14 billion to $29 billion, while total assets have shrunk. Yet MCD's stock price has risen handsomely.

    The critical insight this is telling us about today's markets is…

    "The world's largest gathering of free minds"
    by Adam Taggart

    Wednesday, July 13, 2016, 12:18 AM


    For years now, a number of Peak Prosperity readers have been encouraging Chris and me to attend Freedom Fest, a conference billed as "The world's largest gathering of free minds". 

    Every Spring, the calls and emails begin: Are you guys going to Freedom Fest this year?

    They tell us this is consistently the most stimulating week of their entire year. And that, like at our annual seminars, the people you meet and relationships you make there are well worth the price of admission alone.

    Well, this year we decided to take up the invitation.

    Bernanke’s Suspicious Remarks on Gold

    His dismissal of its importance is not very credible
    by Chris Martenson

    Friday, July 26, 2013, 12:33 AM


    Recently, on July 18, 2013, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke told Congress a number of things about gold that make us wonder which one of two interpretations is correct: Is he really that out of touch? Or is he telling us lies with the bumbling skill of a four-year-old?

    by Adam Taggart

    The Screaming Fundamentals For Owning Gold And Silver

    The investment thesis for precious metals
    by Chris Martenson

    Wednesday, June 29, 2011, 1:22 PM


    This report lays out an investment thesis for gold and one for silver.  Various factors lead me to conclude that gold is one investment that you can park for the next ten or twenty years, confident that it will perform well. My timing and logic for both entering and finally exiting gold (and silver) as investments are laid out in the full report.

    The punch line is this: Gold and silver are not (yet) in bubble territory, and large gains remain, especially if monetary, fiscal, and fundamental supply-and-demand trends remain in play.


    In 2001, as the painful end of the long stock bull market finally seeped into my consciousness, I began to grow quite concerned about my traditional stock and bond holdings. Other than a house with 27 years left on a 30 year mortgage, these holdings represented 100% of my investing portfolio. So I dug into the economic data to see what I could discover. What I found shocked me. It's all in the Crash Course in both video and book form, so I won't go into that data here.

    By 2002, I had investigated enough about our monetary, economic, and political systems that I decided that holding gold and silver would be a very good idea, poured 50% of my liquid net worth into precious metals, and sat back and watched.

    Since then, my appreciation for and understanding of the role of gold as a monetary asset and silver as an indispensable industrial metal have deepened considerably.

    Investing in gold and silver is still a good idea. Here's why.

    Why own gold and silver?

    The reasons to hold gold and silver, and I mean physical gold and silver, are pretty straightforward. So let’s begin with the primary reasons to own gold.
