Why Donald Trump Must Shut Down The Federal Reserve And Start Issuing Debt-Free Money

If Donald Trump truly wants to fix the economy, he must shut down the Federal Reserve.  If he just tries to patch up our current system, he will fail, because it has been fundamentally flawed from the very beginning.  A little over a century ago, very powerful forces on Wall Street convinced Congress to completely restructure our financial system.  An immensely powerful central bank known as the Federal Reserve was created, and the goal was to transform the U.S. dollar into a debt-based currency that would continuously be inflated and to create an endless debt spiral from which the federal […]

How Deutsche Bank Could Take Down Germany

The first bad news broke following the third quarter of 2015. Deutsche Bank reported a loss of $ 7 billion. The news just keeps coming with low or negative earnings thanks to bad loans in Germany and abroad. In my February 19, 2016 edition of The Leading Edge, I issued a clear and stern warning about Deutsche Bank and about a second banking crisis looming. I explicitly said… The Telegraph ran an article yesterday asking if Deutsche was the next Lehman. Is there an echo in the room? Without a doubt, things are coming to a head at the bank. […]

Living In A Van Down By The River – Time To Face The True State Of The Middle Class In America

Do you remember the old Saturday Night Live sketches in which comedian Chris Farley portrayed a motivational speaker that lived in a van down by the river?  Unfortunately, this is becoming a reality for way too many Americans.  As the middle class has shrunk and the cost of living has increased, a lot of people have decided to quite literally “live on the road”.  Whether it is a car, a truck, a van, a bus or an RV, an increasing number of Americans are using their vehicles as their homes.  Just recently, someone that I know took a trip down […]

London Bridge is Falling Down

I just got back from a seminar in London. I spoke there late last year for Graham Rowan, who heads the Elite Investor Club. This time, my promoters in Australia, Greg Owen and Steve and Corinna Essa, decided to team up with Graham to promote a two-day “Secure the Future” seminar in London. I was more than happy to do that. I love London, even though it’s always cloudy and drizzly. But it was also a great opportunity to promote my new book, The Sale of a Lifetime (out now!), because it touches on many of the same themes I […]

Amerigeddon: Are You Ready For The Chaos That Will Ensue When The Power Grid Is Brought Down?

What would America look like with absolutely no electricity?  Could you survive in a world with no lights, no cell phones, no computers, no televisions, no ATMs, no cash registers and no refrigerators?  Such a world is not as far away as you might think.  A very powerful nuclear blast directly over the center of the continental United States could potentially fry electronic equipment from coast to coast, and it would take months or even years to fully restore power.  During that time, the entire country would be plunged into chaos and experts tell us that tens of millions of […]

Economic Recovery? 13 Of The Biggest Retailers In America Are Closing Down Stores

Barack Obama recently stated that anyone that is claiming that America’s economy is in decline is “peddling fiction“.  Well, if the economy is in such great shape, why are major retailers shutting down hundreds of stores all over the country?  Last month, I wrote about the “retail apocalypse” that is sweeping the nation, but since then it has gotten even worse.  Closing stores has become the “hot new trend” in the retail world, and “space available” signs are going up in mall windows all over the United States.  Barack Obama can continue huffing and puffing about how well the middle […]

Remember, Gold Is Still Down 37%

Gold is up about 14% since the year started. Today the market is a little higher so gold is down slightly. But it has momentum and could go a little higher from here. However, it’s important to remember that the metal is still down significantly from its 2011 high, and hasn’t broken out of that downward spiral. Between 2006 and late 2011, gold bubbled up 274%. And since then, it’s fallen 37%. Harry thinks gold could go as high as $ 1,300 in the short-term as the market continues to fall. But after the panic sets in, investors will turn […]

Dot-Com Bubble 2.0 Is Bursting: Tech Stocks Are Already Down Half A Trillion Dollars Since Mid-2015

Do you remember how much stocks went down when the first dot-com bubble burst?  Well, it is happening again, and tech stocks are already down more than half a trillion dollars since the middle of 2015.  On Friday, the tech-heavy Nasdaq dropped to its lowest level in more than 15 months, and it has now fallen more than 16 percent from the peak of the market.  But of course some of the biggest names have fallen much more than that.  Netflix is down 37 percent, Yahoo is down 39 percent, LinkedIn is down 60 percent, and Twitter is down more […]

Economic Activity Is Slowing Down Much Faster Than The Experts Anticipated

We have not seen global economic activity fall off this rapidly since the great recession of 2008.  Manufacturing activity is imploding all over the planet, global trade is slowing down at a pace that is extremely alarming, and the Baltic Dry Index just hit another brand new all-time record low.  If the “real economy” consists of people making, selling and shipping stuff, then it is in incredibly bad shape.  Here in the United States, the dismal economic numbers continue to stun all of the experts.  For example, on Monday we learned that the Texas general business activity index just hit a […]

It’s Bad: Corporate Earnings Are Down, While Debt Is On The Rise

I recently wrote to you about a number of factors that show the stock market saw a major top back in May 2015. The most glaring? Small-cap stocks have diverged massively from large-cap since May. They’re down 24% while large-caps are down only 12%. This is the classic sign that the dumb money is pouring in and the smart money is leaving. Then there’s a classic head and shoulders topping pattern that was initially broken last Friday, January 15, when the S&P 500 moved below 1,880 (next stop is 1,595). I sent Boom & Bust subscribers an alert about this 30 […]
