    A Survival Guide For 2019

    How to safely navigate the 'Year Of Instability'

    With the bursting of the Everything Bubble, we declared last year as the 'Year Everything Changed'. This will be the 'Year of Instability', possibly preceding an upcoming 'Year Of Woe' in 2020.

    But look, we're not saying the world is the process of ending imminently. It's just that we've entered the part of the timeline when things are going to start to get really rocky.

    And we think it's much more useful to think of 2019 as the 'Year Resilience Matters'. It shifts the focus away from fear and instead towards the many things you can do to protect yourself and those you care about – and even to position yourself to prosper through the coming challenges.

    The policy of creating trillions in new currency and buying trillions in assets has inflated an 'Everything' Bubble — a bubble in all the asset classes being supported or purchased by central banks and their proxies.

    Many observers wonder: What, if anything, can pop this?

    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.

    Fight Cage

    It's time we stop being the victims in this experiment

    To my eye, society is fraying apart. People are confused, angry, isolated, and increasingly willing to fight each other. Formerly peaceful resistance is turning into violence. Our baser emotions like fear, anger — rage, even– are now bubbling at the surface.

    It's entirely reasonable for people to be experiencing such emotions right now. But in most cases, their anger is misdirected.

    Hell To Pay

    The final condition for a market crash is falling into place

    Those familiar with my writing know I put the word “markets” in quotes because we no longer have a financial system where legitimate price discovery is a regular — or even recognizable — feature.

    It's destined to fail. What more can be said about such a flawed system?

    Well, a lot as it turns out. 

    And failure to pay attention at this stage of economic and ecological history will prove to be exceptionally painful.

    Ed Butowsky: Calculating The True Cost of Living Increase

    Why it's much higher than we're told/sold

    Over the past decade, we've been told that inflation has been tame — actually below the target the Federal Reserve would like to see. But if that's true, then why does the average household find it harder and harder to get by?

    The ugly reality is that the true annual cost of living is far outpacing the government's reported inflation rate. By nearly 10x in many parts of the country.

    This week, we welcome Ed Butowsky, developer of the Chapwood Index, to the program. His index is a 'real world' measure of how prices are increasing much faster than the wages of the 99% can afford.

    Charles Hugh Smith: Fixing The Way We Work

    Closing the wealth gap with meaningful work

    Charles Hugh Smith returns to the podcast this week to discuss the theme of his new book A Radically Beneficial World: Automation, Technology and Creating Jobs for All.

    Automation and artificial intelligence are changing the landscape of work. Tens of millions of jobs are on track to be eliminated over the next decade or so by these advancing technological innovations in the US alone.

    The way in which our current economy is constructed, the fruits of those cost savings are likely to go into a very small number of private pockets, while the millions of displaced workers will find themselves with no income and no work to do. It's a huge looming problem that is not being address in national dialog right now.

    But there's opportunity to course-correct here. To use our new technologies to increase total productivity in a way that empowers rather than diminishes the individual worker.

    We Live In An Era Of Dangerous Imbalances

    And history shows they correct painfully

    The intervention by the world's central banks has resulted in today's bizarro financial markets, where "bad news is good" because it may lead to more (sorry, moar) thin-air stimulus to goose asset prices even higher.

    The result is a world addicted to debt and the phony stimulus now essential to sustaining it. In the process, a tremendous wealth gap has been created, one still expanding at an exponential rate.
