In today’s Early Warning report, I discussed a number of prominent asset managers who are warning of another market bubble. (Get access to my daily Early Warning intel brief here.)
Federal Reserve Chairman Jay Powell brushed off a question about it during Congressional testimony this week, but it’s clear that the Fed’s easy money policies are inflating yet another financial bubble.
“It will end in tears,” says one investment manager.
But something else caught my attention…
Dr. Michael Burry — the trader who foresaw the 2008 financial meltdown, made famous in the book and movie The Big Short — is warning about the risk of hyperinflation.
He drew a number of comparisons between pre-collapse Wiemar Germany and the United States today.
We’ve heard these predictions of imminent collapse and hyperinflation for the past decade. I’ve been skeptical and doubtful that the threat was ever imminent, but here’s the thing…
THESE GUYS ARE EVENTUALLY GOING TO BE RIGHT.
The window for this happening is likely somewhere between 2024 and 2044, for reasons I described in this morning’s Early Warning brief.
But I want to draw your attention to what you can do to prepare.
I don’t know the exact solution yet, but I can tell you that I’m actively doing four things:
1. Growing my local community and fostering a culture of preparedness.
2. Getting plugged in with local farmers and ranchers, farmer’s markets, and agricultural co-ops, and thinking about how to foster a functioning local economy once the dollar goes.
3. Getting my home and family as self-sufficient and self-reliant as I possibly can.
4. Making sure that I develop contacts for local information-sharing in case the worst case scenario does happen.
Intelligence reduces uncertainty about the future and it fills in “blind spots” we’re going to have during an emergency, however brief or protracted it is. (And I do think we’re headed for multi-year, if not decade-long, emergency.)
Earlier this month, my new training company Gray Zone Activity went live. It’s the online platform where I’m teaching the intelligence and security skills required to navigate this country’s Gray Zone future.
I’m teaching in-person classes this weekend in Austin, Texas and another one next month in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Disaster/Tactical Intelligence classes are being scheduled for Nashville, Atlanta, Phoenix, Las Vegas, Tacoma, New Jersey (TBA), and several other locales.
If you want to schedule a 1-day Disaster Intelligence Course or 2-day Tactical Intelligence Course near you, then let me know by getting in touch. I’ll get as many classes on the books as I can.
And I’d like to invite you to sign up for the Gray Zone newsletter to stay aware of training opportunities. You can sign up at https://www.grayzoneactivity.com/training.
Until next time, be well.
Always Out Front,
