Getting Ready for the Coming Wild Economic Ride – Part 2

In part one, we just finished talking about reducing your material footprint, so that you start to wean yourself from the “luxury must-haves” that you consume now. This also goes for any vices you have. The sudden withdrawal from nicotine, alcohol and caffeine will change your behavior. The more vices you have, the more difficult you’ll have in coping without them. Start weaning yourself off them now. After the balloon pops on this economic bubble we’re in, common daily items are going to disappear fast, and after that, they’ll be in short supply. Look at any country that has gone … Continue reading

Getting Ready for the Coming Wild Economic Ride – Part 1

Undoubtedly, you’ve seen the recent shakeup in the news on how the Fed is thinking about tightening up the free money they’ve been handing out to bankers. The purpose of all this printed money, we were told, was to give the economy time to heal itself and thus avoid an economic collapse. Trillions of dollars were given to Wall Streeters and bankers, yet we have little to show for it. The media has long ignored the fact that this injection of money hasn’t accomplished anything but keep friends of the Fed in a constant supply of cash. This is, of … Continue reading

Episode 144 – What Can We Expect Going Forward After The Election

            Now that the election is over, we need to move past the red and blue teams and take a realistic look at where we’re headed.  As I’ve mentioned before, it doesn’t matter who’s in charge, we’re still going to go over that financial cliff; and we need to be prepared for that. As I’ve mentioned several times, I don’t get into politics very often on the podcast because being prepared is non-political, as well as non-religious.  However, I think too many people have been assuming that things were going to be different after the election. … Continue reading

Episode 139 – FAQ For Hyperinflation Skeptics with Vincent Cate Part 2

            This is part 2 of my discussion with Vincent Cate about his FAQ on Hyperinflation for Skeptics.  This is one of the best FAQs I’ve seen on hyperinflation, as it dispenses with the big words that economists like to use in order to keep the public confused and befuddled about what’s happening in the economy. Part one of this interview can be found here: Episode 138 – FAQ For Hyperinflation Skeptics with Vincent Cate. You can also check out his other website: http://gold.ai.     This podcast was sponsored by:

Episode 138 – FAQ For Hyperinflation Skeptics with Vincent Cate

            This is part one with my interview with Vincent Cate.  For part two, see: Episode 139 – FAQ For Hyperinflation Skeptics with Vincent Cate Part 2. Hyperinflation is probably the greatest issue facing us today. Recently, I came across a blog post entitled, “FAQ For Hyperinflation Skeptics” by Vincent Cate. This is probably the best text I’ve seen on hyperinflation.  Vincent does an excellent job of explaining what hyperinflation is, why it happens, and dispelling many of its myths; and he does it with plain language. Anytime I see one of these economists with their ambiguous … Continue reading

Episode 137 – Current Events for the Week of October 14, 2012

            Before I go over the current events and news for this week, I want to mention that just because I have a link to a website, that it in no way means that I endorse the political views or any of the opinions on that website. I simply pull the information out where the information exists.  Sometimes this means that it might be on a pro-democrat site, or a pro-republican site, or a pro-libertarian site, or a pro-nobody-throw-all-the-bums-out website. Look past that, as I’m not trying to send any hidden messages.  In fact, we don’t … Continue reading

Dollar No Longer Primary Oil Currency As China Begins To Sell Oil Using Yuan

This is one of those “shoes” that we have been waiting to drop. The rest of the world is fed up with our monetary policies and the inflation that we’re exporting. While small countries can’t do much about it, the larger countries can, and as you can see from the article, they have. In a nutshell, China is now completely set up and ready for any country to buy and sell oil using their yuan, instead of US Dollars. This is the equivalent of a death knell for the dollars. [From Dollar no longer primary oil currency as China begins … Continue reading
