    Executive Summary

    • Confidence in the US is eroding, and as goes sentiment, as goes stability
    • Expect covid-19 to deliver more nasty surprises
    • Prepare for higher inflation and supply chain breakdowns
    • Joining the PP movement is much better than facing what’s coming alone

    The US is deteriorating fast.  It can’t even manage the simplest of tasks: getting sufficient PPE to its front-line health care workers and explaining to its own citizens why wearing masks is in their own individual and collective best interests.

    Will other countries continue to accept the US dollar and trust it as a ‘store of value’?  Increasingly, the answer seems to be “no”:

    This erosion could well turn into a waterfall at some point, especially as the coronavirus continues to throw sand into the gears of the global economy.

    Which is why I’m preparing for…   (Enroll now to access the full Part 2 report)

    Sebastian Junger: Is Our Material Wealth Undermining Our Happiness & Health?

    For all modern society has gained, we may have lost what really matters

    One the most personally meaningful podcast interviews we’ve done over the years was Our Evolutionary Need For Community, recorded with Peabody award-winning author Sebastian Junger.

    Since recording our initial interview with Sebastian, we’ve often shared the insights from it with the Peak Prosperity tribe at live events and in our writings. So this week we decided to reconnect with Sebastian, and hear how his thoughts and conclusions on the topic have evolved since we last talked with him.

    It’s clear that he believes more than ever that the future prosperity of our society will be rooted in rediscovering how to create and foster the communal bonds our tribal ancestors lived by. And that begins by taking an honest look at the narratives, behaviors, and modern conveniences and temptations that keep us trapped in unhappy, unhealthy isolation.

    VIDEO: The Peak Prosperity Tribe Speaks!

    A short montage of advice from your peers

    By now you're probably well-aware that this year's Peak Prosperity annual seminar is being held in beautiful northern California's wine country from April 26-28, 2019.

    And yes, of course, Chris and I think the experience delivered at these seminars is life-changing and highly valuable — and we strongly recommend you join us this year. But as the producers of the event, we're obviously biased as heck.

    So rather than hearing more from us, why not hear from actual Peak Prosperity members who have attended? What do they think?

    Is it a worthwhile investment? What can you expect?

    Well, we asked several PPers who went last year to share their thoughs with you. Each submitted a short video clip, which we've stiched together into this brief montage for you.

    Kauth & Alowan: Why We Need Each Other

    The fundamentals for building community
    by Adam Taggart

    Following on our recent podcast with Sebastian Junger about our shared evolutionary programming for tribal living, this week Chris meets with community-building experts Bill Kauth and Zoe Aloman, co-authos of We Need Each Other. 

    Many PeakProsperity.com readers know that Chris has long found value in his weekly men's group. That group spawned out of the ManKind Project, which Kauth helped found back in the 1980s.

    In this week's podcast, Chris, Bill and Zoe discuss the best practices and critical success factors for how to create tribal ties in our own communities. The work is not easy, but nor is it impossible. And it is incredibly rewarding.

    For those looking to develop more Social Capital in their lives, this will be a particularly relevant interview to listen to.

    Sebastian Junger: Our Evolutionary Need For Community

    Tribal solidarity is in our genetic programming
    by Adam Taggart

    Peabody award-winning author Sebastian Junger joins our podcast this week. Junger is well-known for his NYT-bestselling books The Perfect Storm and War, the latter of which was written after a 15-month tour of duty in the most dangerous outpost in Afghanistan's Korengal Valley. 

    Based on his observations while in Afghanistan, Junger noted how much troops in combat valued the social solidarity of their units. In fact, he noted that the loss of this cohesive community, with its sense of purpose and shared responsibility, created prodigious psychological strife when these soldiers returned and tried to re-integrate into civilian life. This dynamic is not just limited to the military; any collection of humans working in tight-knit groups under stress, united in purpose, evidences similar behavior (Peace Corps volunteers, trauma care physicians, etc).

    In his latest book Tribe: On Homecoming and Belonging, Junger explores our evolutionary wiring for community, and paradoxically, how our modern aspirations for "success" and "wealth" attempt to distance ourselves from it — making us unhappier and emotionally unhealthier in the pursuit.
