The Boomers Are Aging Fast… Time to Make Money Now

If you’ve followed my writing for any length of time, you know how much respect I have for Harry and his demographic work. Believe it or not, Harry, and his approach to forecasting, gave me the confidence to help launch Peak Income – an income newsletter – at a time when most investors were terrified of yield-focused investments. The consensus two years ago was that inflation and higher bond yields were just around the corner, which would’ve meant a rough ride for the kind of investments I recommend. In retrospect, that claim seems almost absurd. Inflation is still dead on […]

Washington D.C. Is Essentially Just A Gigantic Money Machine

If you have ever wondered why our leaders in Washington D.C. seem to act so strangely, the truth is that it almost always comes down to just one thing.  It has been said that “money makes the world go round”, and that is definitely true in Washington.  This year the federal government will spend more than 4 trillion dollars, and that represents well over one-fifth of our national GDP.  With so much money coming in and so much money going out, the stakes are incredibly high, and that is why so much money is poured into political campaigns on the […]

Smart Money vs Dumb Money: Precious Metals Turn Bullish

The bullion banks periodically fleece the long-side speculators in the futures market. The pattern has become almost as familiar as day following night. It plays like this; a constant stream of individuals, institutions, and hedge funds discover (or rediscover) the fundamental reasons to own precious metals. Instead of buying physical metal, they get lured into the futures markets by the ability to make leveraged bets and the promise of riches. The bullion bankers build massive short positions by selling paper contracts to all comers and wait for a chance to push prices lower. Recent revelations over price rigging have shown […]

Why Are So Many Big Investors Positioning Themselves To Make Giant Amounts Of Money If The Stock Market Crashes?

I keep hearing from people that think that the stock market is going to crash by the end of the year.  Hopefully that will not happen, but the ridiculous stock prices that we are seeing right now certainly cannot last forever.  On Sunday, I was chatting with a friend that had just been to a financial conference.  He was quite surprised that one of the things being taught to the attendees of this conference was how to position themselves to make an enormous amount of money when the stock market crashes dramatically in the near future.  Markets tend to go […]

Free Money: Potential Presidential Candidate Mark Zuckerberg Suggests That All Americans Should Get A ‘Universal Basic Income’

Should everyone in America receive a “basic income” directly from the federal government?  Considering the fact that we are already 20 trillion dollars in debt, such a concept may sound quite foolish to many of you, but this is an idea that is really starting to gain traction in leftist circles.  In fact, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg suggested that this was something that we should “explore” during the commencement speech that he just delivered at Harvard.  For quite a while it has been obvious that Zuckerberg is very strongly considering a run for the presidency in 2020, but up until […]

Profitable Insights from Money Metals’ Exclusive Podcast Interviews

Dr. Marc Faber, editor and publisher, The Gloom, Boom & Doom Report (4/7/17): “I think that the economy is not going to do as well as people expect… My sense is that the economy in the U.S. is weakening and not strengthening.” “Hard assets such as precious metals are at the historical low point compared to financial assets, so I think going forward there’s a huge discrepancy in performance between financial assets and gold. Hard assets will come back into favor.” “For the rest of 2017, I think that gold shares are an attractive asset class. Precious metals can easily […]

Breaking News: Sound Money Is Rising in the States

Inflation is the most pernicious of taxes levied by our government. Officials systematically devalue the Federal Reserve Note “dollar,” then levy capital gains taxes on assets when their dollar price rises. The “gains” are largely illusory. Rising asset prices over time reflect the fact that the dollar buys less of everything. But the tax obligations triggered by this inflation are very real. Bills calling for the elimination of capital gains taxes on money, i.e. precious metals, have recently been introduced in both Idaho and Arizona. Money Metals Exchange president Stefan Gleason testified at the hearing and pointed out that “by […]

Making Money with a Mexican Coke Dealer

From Harry Dent: We recently wrapped up our March edition of Boom & Bust and I’ve no doubt it’s going to create a stir. I discuss the controversial immigration issue and that’s possibly one of the quickest way to make enemies right now. Still, the topic had to be covered because it has demographic implications (complications even) that we cannot ignore. So, I took a deep dive into the immigration numbers to show readers the true nature of the situation. Then I handed the baton to Charles, the Boom & Bust Portfolio Manager, and told him to find an investment opportunity […]

I Can’t Sing, But I Can Still Get Mailbox Money

Everyone likes mailbox money. It’s the kind of cash that you earn while doing a bunch of nothing. It simply shows up in your mailbox every month. I like the sound of it. This is different from simple monthly income programs, which can include rental properties. Anyone who has been a landlord will tell you, there’s nothing easy about that life. No, I want the kind of money that rolls in without additional effort. Musicians, songwriters, authors, and others that create content are familiar with the concept, since they can get paid for many years on a single piece of […]
