    VIDEO: The Fed’s Evil Juggernaut

    Don't let it crush your future

    The US Federal Reserve is once again force-feeding liquidity into the system. At its fastest rate ever.

    The result? Record high stock prices whose valuations defy all logic.

    What’s wrong with that? Shouldn’t we just enjoy the party and be grateful for our rising 401ks?

    What’s wrong is that the Fed’s actions are dooming us. Their poisonous cocktail of endless cheap money and rock-bottom interest rates is hastening a terminal breakdown of the economy, while deliberately enriching a tiny cadre of elites to the ruin of everyone else.

    Understanding The Keys To Power

    Will be a survival requirement for the coming decade

    The harsh simple truth is that those who run the system manipulate it to their benefit.

    This is true in both government and industry. Those in power do ‘whatever it takes’ to remain in power and enjoy the fruits of their advantage. Any sort of social ‘duty’ is secondary (at best), and will be sacrificed if necessary.

    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.

    What Could Pop The Everything Bubble?

    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?

    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.

    The Return of Dan Ariely: The Survey Results Are In

    by Adam Taggart

    Nearly a month ago, friend-of-the-site and renowned behavioral economics researcher Dan Ariely invited our readers to take part in one of his experiments. Readers were asked to fill out a survey that asked questions about a hypothetical country and the manner in which they would prefer to see wealth distributed within it.

    Nearly one thousand of you completed the survey and the ensuing discussion on the site was animated, to say the least. Many railed against the injustice of confiscatory tax codes and the lack of social mobility proposed within the study.

    Well, the results are in, and Dan explains below what he was testing for, how the survey was structured (Surprise! Many of you saw different versions than your peers), and the conclusions you helped his team reach regarding people’s perception of wealth inequality. Suffice it to say, you’re an admirably fair-minded bunch.  Here are the results:

    Your Chance to Advance Science

    Dan Ariely needs lab rats. 

    Our new friend, the renowned behavioral economics researcher, is conducting an experiment to better understand people’s perceptions around wealth inequality. A timely subject, as the wealth gap between rich and poor in many developed countries is now reaching all-time highs.

    Following Chris’ recent interview with him, Dan has put together a survey for the CM.com audience to fill out on this topic. Perhaps we’ll become one of the colorful studies Dan is famous for citing in his talks!

    If you’re game for it, take 10 minutes to fill out Dan’s survey. And remember, this is for posterity, so please be honest. (Can anyone cite that film reference?)

    Here’s a bit more background in Dan’s own words:
