    The Wealthy Are Plotting To Leave Us Behind

    In the absence of an official plan, you'd better have your own — something the extremely wealthy are already working on for themselves.

    As the co-founders of Peak Prosperity, Adam and I happen to know and/or interact with quite a few wealthy people who are deeply concerned about the future and taking steps to assure their survival in it.  These people have access to the very best information; they know the system better than your average citizen.  They know what the weak points are and what could go wrong.

    From our observations, it’s safe to say that the more insider-experience an individual has, the greater their concern.

    The least-concerned people are those without much knowledge of the system (i.e., most "regular" folks). Or a weak sense of curiosity. Or, most damagingly, a propensity to get their news from the mainstream media.  Let’s just say that the information available to the “retail crowd” is either incomplete or misleading (and quite often intentionally so).

    What I mean to say more directly is: if you're not already a billionaire and getting access to the very best and most accurate information, you’d do well to….

    A new Martenson Report is ready for enrolled members.
    Link:  Year of the Tiger

    Executive Summary

    • China is pursuing an active policy of resource mercantilism.
    • China appears to be strategically preparing for resource scarcity.
    • China’s auto sales have surpassed those of the US.
    • This year China also edged out Germany as the top exporter.
    • As China’s economy expands, its energy use increases.
    • The US should be stewarding its remaining resources and transitioning deliberately to a very different economic model, but instead we are wasting both time and resources.

    No, this report has nothing to do with golfing.  In the Chinese calendar, 2010 is the Year of the Tiger.

    What’s the plan?

    A Summary

    Many people have asked us, "Where are the large-scale solutions to all these problems you have described?" and  "What should we do as a nation to avoid the seemingly inevitable consequences of this fiat money system?"

    The lack of promotion of a large-scale solution set reflects a deliberate act of strategy rather than negligence. We believe we must reach a critical mass of individuals who have an understanding of the ideas presented in the Crash Course, before any national or global solutions will even be possible.

    Because we are still quite far from this tipping point of understanding, this website continues to focus primarily on educating people and helping them move from denial, to awareness, to understanding, and then towards actions rooted in a sense of personal responsibility.

    Once we have achieved a critical mass of people who understand the issues and have taken responsible actions as a result, solutions will find more fertile ground in which to take root.  Many people have already reached this place of understanding and assumed personal responsibility for their futures, but this site is organized around the principle that most have not.
