Receiving an update on the world "net" energy/EROEI situation was one of the most-requested webinar topics from our survey of the PP audience earlier this year.

You asked. We're delivering.

On Sunday, August 26th at 4pm ET/1pm PT, we'll be holding our next webinar titled: The Energy Predicament

Within it, we'll explore questions such as:

  • What's the latest outlook for fossil fuel prices and supply?
  • What can we expect from alternative energy sources? Are there new discoveries/technological advances that may change the situation?
  • How fast is EROEI falling, and when might it become a permanent barrier to economic growth — or trigger social unrest?
  • What, specifically, should we expect if/when we enter into a perpetually low net energy future? Which of today's comforts (and essentials) will disappear first, and how quickly?
  • What opportunities are there today for investors to gain exposure to profitable energy plays, especially for those fuels expected to be in high demand tomorrow?

…as well as address live questions submitted by the webinar audience.

Our guest experts for the event have already confirmed their excitement to participate:

What To Expect: Feedback From Past Webinars

If you haven't yet participated in a Peak Prosperity webinar, here's what you can expect.

Our The End Of Money webinar earlier this year brought together David Stockman, Axel Merk, and G. Edward Griffin — several of the world's top experts on the central banking system, world currencies and financial markets.

Moderated by Chris, each speaker shared his latest thoughts on our current economic situation (spoiler alert: they're each very worried), as well as his predictions on what the central banks are most likely to do next — and what the implications will be.

David Stockman expressed concern that the central banks are very unlikely to be able to inject emergency liquidity to "rescue" the markets the next time a major downturn threatens:

While Axel Merk, fresh from an event where he mingled with past and current Federal Reserve presidents, shared his observation that the Fed is essentially flying blind at this point:

G. Edward Griffin delivered a sober warning, urging us not to underestimate how ruthless the central banks are in sacrificing the public good in order to advance their own agenda.

Chris then presented on his own forecast, followed by an active discussion with New Harbor Financial (Peak Prosperity's endorsed financial advisor) as to strategies for preserving one's financial wealth during today's uncertain times.

Feedback from the webinar was nicely positive. Here's some of the feedback received from participants:

"I am inspired and in awe how the speakers effectively take massive macro subject areas and break them down and put into context so those of us not as plugged into the topic can understand"

"Great info. Looking forward to the next one. "

"Chris Martenson is one of the best communicators in the modern world of finance.  As a moderator he can quickly drill down to the most pressing questions people have with often the smartest minds in the business."

"Loved the advice at the end."

"The ability to ask questions to some of the most brilliant minds regarding such topics was worth the price of admission alone! "

We expect this next "The Energy Situation" webinar to be just as value-rich, if not even more so, for participants.

Register for it today!

    Typo in text regarding the date of the seminar

    Under the line: "You asked. We're delivering," the date of the seminar is listed as "Sunday, August 29th," however Sunday is the 26th.
    [Admin: fixed - thanks!]
