As the U.S. economy worsens (Q4 2018 GDP was just revised downward from 2.6% to 2.2% and Q1 2019 GDP is currently estimated at 1.7%), we have repeatedly reported on growth warnings from well-respected institutions including the IMF, the Bank for International Settlements and leading academics.

The point was to make it clear that economic weakness is not a fringe view but something the elites themselves are deeply concerned about. Now comes the most authoritative warning of all.

As reported in this article, world-famous investor Warren Buffett, ranked among the richest people in the world, recently told CNBC that “the pace of increase in the economy has slowed down.” He bolstered this claim by reporting that his BNSF freight railroad, which transports oil from Canada in addition to many other loads, is showing signs of slower growth.

Transportation indexes typically lead broader stocks indexes when it comes to turns in the economy. The head winds to growth are coming from many directions, including trade wars, demographics and tighter monetary policy from the Fed through “quantitative tightening,” or QT.

None of this anecdotal evidence points definitively to a recession, but the U.S. is unquestionably closer to a recession than at any time since the current expansion began in 2009.

Buffett is ready for a recession with over $100 billion in cash. It may be time to also increase your cash allocation and reduce exposure to risky stocks.

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,
