A Living Legend Warns That Conditions Are Worse Than He’s Ever Seen

Paul Volcker, former chairman of the Federal Reserve under presidents Carter and Reagan, and former deputy Treasury secretary under President Nixon, is one of the most senior and most highly respected bankers in the world. He’s seen it all: from the end of the gold standard to the oil crisis to the 1981 recession and the Panic of 2008.

When Paul Volcker talks, people listen. What he’s saying now is his gravest warning of all.

As reported in this article, Volcker says “We’re in a hell of a mess.” His reason for this is not the latest economic data, which are not bad. His real concern is political dysfunction.

Volcker knows that the U.S. debt and deficits are out of control. It’s not too late to correct the debt situation, but time is of the essence. What is needed above all is some unity of vision and bipartisan cooperation.

That’s exactly what’s missing. Instead of cooperation, Volcker sees acrimony, lobbyists and swamp creatures from Washington, D.C., making progress impossible. There is no shortage of Washington, D.C., critics these days, but Volcker deserves special attention because he’s an insider and he’s been around longer than almost anyone else of his stature.

Individual investors don’t have the influence of Volcker. It’s difficult for any individual to turn the current fiscal situation around.

This does not mean investors are helpless. It’s not too late to reallocate your portfolio to asset classes that will weather the coming storm.

Yes, there is such a thing as climate change, but it’s slow, difficult to predict and almost impossible to model because of the complexity of the process. The climate alarmists have grabbed most of the headlines for the past ten

WHY TRUMP WILL WIN REELECTION: NOT POLLS OR PUNDITS; JUST COMMON SENSE

Political analysts use polls, betting odds, historic trends and other inputs to make their (usually wrong) political predictions. We all remember that “experts” said Hillary Clinton would win the presidency in 2016 (they gave her a 92% chance on the morning of the election), and that the UK would vote to “remain” in the EU

HERE’S ANOTHER ELITE WITH ANOTHER PLAN TO TAX AWAY YOUR WEALTH

The elites never rest when it comes to devising new ways to take your money through taxes, inflation or outright confiscation. The latest Trojan horse the elites are riding to take your money is climate change. The climate does change over long periods of time for reasons that are not well understood except that they

KRUGMAN SHOWS HE KNOWS LITTLE ABOUT ECONOMICS AND LESS ABOUT FINANCE

We already knew that Nobel Prize winner Paul Krugman knows almost nothing about economics. Now, we see from this article that he knows nothing about banking either. Krugman claims that the repeal of Glass-Steagall and the actions of banks in general were not the cause of the 2008 financial crisis. The conventional wisdom is that Lehman Brothers,
