Major Long- and Short-Term Turning Point Ahead

First things first: My new book is out on November 15, just one month after our annual Irrational Economic Summit which starts this Thursday. It’s called Zero Hour: Turn the Greatest Political and Financial Crisis in Modern History to Your Advantage. So, when I take the stage in the conference center at the Nashville Airport Marriot hotel at 1:25 p.m. local time (central), I’ll give attendees and LIVE Stream viewers a sneak preview of the most important points of the book. And my co-author, Andrew Pancholi, who spoke to acclaim at our last IES conference, will be back again as […]

A Review Of George Soros’ “The Way Ahead” Lecture

The following review is straight from Operator James, a member of the Macro Ops Hub. With my TV broken for the last several months, and a useless repairman backed by a company going out of business, I’ve had a lot of time to devote to learning and thinking. Recently I realized I need to dig into fundamentals and decided George Soros was the best place to start. Thankfully there’s plenty of his speeches and lectures online (along with a lot of ‘Soros is the devil’ articles and something about him being a Nazi). Soros’ “The Way Ahead” lecture series from […]

Huge Movement Ahead in Silver; Paper Markets in Trouble

The Silver Market will experience a significant trend change in the future due the unraveling of the paper markets. Already we are witnessing a lot of political turmoil and havoc as President-elect Donald Trump gets ready to take over the White House in the next few days. It’s also logical to assume the policy changes President-elect Trump wants to make will cause serious ramifications to the highly leveraged debt-based fiat monetary system… whether he realizes it or not. Craig over at TFMetalsReport.com recently interviewed Paul Myclhresst about the huge problem the Chinese government is dealing with as they liquidate Dollars […]

Job Creation Could Fall off a Cliff in the Months Ahead

Let’s do a quick thought experiment… Imagine you’ve got two people in the workforce. Let’s say one is 40 and the other 65. When both are gainfully employed, the unemployment rate is 0%. We’re enjoying full employment within the labor pool. During the recession, the 40-year-old loses his job. With only two people in the labor pool, that means only half of the working age population that wants a job, has a job. Unemployment is at 50%. Ouch. As the economy recovers, the 40-year-old once again finds work. However, he’s earning less than he was before. Great news, sort of. […]

Unacceptable Cures for the Days Ahead

We’ve held four Irrational Economic Summits so far. Feedback after each has always been very positive. This year, we outdid ourselves! George Gilder, co-founder of the Discovery Institute, literally walked onto stage, threw his arms into the air, and proclaimed: “This is the best conference ever!” And rumor has it that every morning he’d rush down to the conference hall early so he could grab a front-row seat! And from the feedback our conference director, Amanda Klein, is reading on the evaluation forms, it’s safe to say that attendees loved this year’s conference as much as the speakers did. Here […]

Big Move in the Silver Market Ahead

Precious metals markets enter the fourth quarter near a potential inflection point on the charts (see below). Gold and silver traded mostly sideways in the third quarter, with gold losing less than 1% for the quarter and silver managing a 2.5% quarterly gain. The money metals finished the month of September on a bit of a down note last week. However, no major technical levels got breached. The technical setup on the silver chart shows a three-month consolidation narrowing toward an end point. Bulls are looking for a weekly close decisively above the $ 20/oz level to confirm an upside […]

The U.S. Is in for Much Greater Civil Unrest Ahead

I made a confession to our Boom & Bust subscribers last month. While I generally advise against owning most real estate, I have a secluded property in the Caribbean. It’s the only property I own (I rent my home in Tampa) and I know for a fact that its value will likely depreciate in the great real estate shakeout I see ahead, although likely by half as much as a high-end property in Florida. The reason I own this property is because I see rising chances for civil unrest in the inevitable downturn ahead, especially in the U.S. I want […]

This Chart Shows the First Big Crash Is Likely Just Ahead

The story on Wall Street and CNBC continues to be that we’re in a correction and this is a buying opportunity. Even Warren Buffett joins the chorus of stock market cheerleaders for the skeptical public. Well, I agree with the skeptical public, not the experts here! The bull market from early 2009 into May 2015 looks just like every bubble in history, and I’m getting one sign after the next that we did indeed peak last May. I’ve been telling our Boom & Bust subscribers for months now that the dominant pattern in the stock is the “rounded top” pattern […]

Former Reagan Administration Official Warns That Financial Disaster Is Dead Ahead

Why won’t the American people listen to the warnings?  David Stockman was a member of the U.S. House of Representatives from 1977 to 1981, and he served as the Director of the Office of Management and Budget under President Ronald Reagan from 1981 to 1985.  These days, he is running a website called “Contra Corner” which I highly recommend that you check out.  Stockman believes that a global “debt super-cycle” that has been building for decades is now bursting, and he is convinced that the consequences for the U.S. and for the rest of the planet will be absolutely catastrophic.  […]

The Rollercoaster Ride of the Nasdaq: Big Drop Ahead?

Most of the major U.S. stock indices hit all-time highs recently. The Dow reached 18,288.63, the S&P 2117.39 — both of them records. But there’s one that didn’t quite break its high from 15 years ago… the Nasdaq. This leads us to one of the biggest questions we’re looking at in the market: Are we going to see another tech bust like the one we saw in 2000? Mark Cuban came out recently and said that today’s bubble in tech stocks is even worse than the dot-com bubble of 2000, with recent IPOs way overvalued and more illiquid than ever. […]
