This is Stagflation, and Here is an Easy, Practical Idea to Prep for it

The economic gurus and magic-chart advisors who told you inflation was going to be transitory or that it wouldn’t amount to much or even the dimmest of all who proclaimed it wasn’t happening at all could not have been proven more foolish and blind to the obvious all around them. Now they are revising themselves […]

I’ve said inflation will rise much higher than the Fed believes and will persist much longer and that it will eventually kill the latest stock market bull and the economy. If these inflation predictions prove wrong, I’ll stop writing my blog. Simple as that. That is how firmly I believe what I am saying and […]

Epochalypse Now: How Deep is Your Depression?

We are nearing that mid-point in July when I said we would start to see the news turn from euphoria-inducing reopening positives to depression-developing realism.

2020 Economic Predictions: This Series of Unfortunate Events Guarantees the Epocalypse

The troubles listed here in my 2020 economic predictions are so severe and so likely to get even worse that it’s more difficult to imagine they won’t get worse than to believe they will.

Recession Started Right on Time — Before Most Were Even Aware, So Beware!

Before we get into the timing of the recession, here is a graph that is particularly telling of the Fed’s journey and is worth studying from left to right.
