    Happy Thanksgiving To All U.S. Readers

    And an offering of gratitude for everyone
    by Chris Martenson

    Thursday, November 27, 2014, 2:59 PM


    Today is Thanksgiving in the US, a prominent holiday typically marked by insane travel nightmares for many, and a chance to spend time with non-core relatives.

    To balance all that out we usually overeat, over drink, and slip into a tryptophan coma in front of the TV.

    At least, that’s what the holiday has become for many.

    Here at Peak Prosperity we like to remember that the holiday consists of two words, thanks and giving.

    Off the Cuff: Will We Learn from Japan’s Missteps In Time?

    Its fate could shock other countries into action
    by Adam Taggart

    Thursday, November 22, 2012, 7:14 AM


    In this week's Off the Cuff with Mish & Chris podcast, Mish and Chris discuss:

    • Japan's Kamikaze Monetary Policy
      • The yen may be poised for destruction
    • Denial is a river in Germany, Greece, and Spain
      • Poor decisions being made in all three countries
    • Fiscal Cliff: Deal or No Deal?
      • What's most likely at this point

    In this Thanksgiving edition of Off the Cuff, Chris and Mish are grateful for Japan. Why? Because Japan will likely collapse under its unsustainable monetary and fiscal policies before the U.S. does.

    Much of the structural rot that ails the U.S. has been festering for much longer in Japan. With signs growing that the Japanese economy is nearing its predictable endgame, its implosion might be shocking enough to cause our leaders to think seriously that fate could be ours if we don't take radically different actions immediately.

    Sharing Our Virtual Thanksgiving Table

    by Adam Taggart

    The core of this site is its community. Having conscientious discussion about a post-Peak Oil future with smart, supportive, and experienced minds from all over the planet is an incredibly valuable resource.

    At Thanksgiving time on this site, we like to reflect on the good fortune we share: that Chris had the courage to share his Crash Course vision with the world, that this like-minded community has flourished around it, and that we still have the gift of time to make progress in our resiliency-building preparations.

    So, let’s make the most of the “virtual” Thanksgiving table we’ve created here at this site, and if you have a moment today, share a thought, story, or photo of what you’re thankful for this season.

    Sharing Our Thanks

    by Adam Taggart

    Thursday, November 25, 2010, 4:10 AM


    While we deal with some pretty heavy material on this site, it’s important to remember we all have a tremendous amount to be thankful for.

    Thanks to Chris, we’re aware of the interplay among the Three Es and how things are likely to unfold. Take a moment to appreciate that gift – the vast majority of those yet to swallow the ‘red pill’ are still sleepwalking into the future unprepared.

    Thanks to our still-functioning societies & economies, we have time. Time to debate & process the implications of peak oil and to take informed steps to increase our resiliency to them – in our investment portfolios, in our homes, and in our communities.

    And thanks to each of us, we have this site – a collective of smart and encouraging individuals doing their best to “figure it all out” and help each other do the same.  Your forum contributions, comments, and feedback are making this site the pre-eminent resource on the Web for those seeking to prepare for an uncertain future.

    So this year, I’d like to invite us to share our Thanksgiving experiences with each other.
