A strange alliance between 70-something Democratic leaders and millennial voters is emerging. Many of the top candidates for the Democratic Party presidential nomination in 2020, including Bernie Sanders (actually a Socialist Party member running as a Democrat) and Elizabeth Warren, are openly espousing socialist policies including guaranteed basic income, government-guaranteed jobs, forgiveness of student loan debt and other budget-busting initiatives.

Even younger Democratic hopefuls, including Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey, are jumping on the socialist bandwagon. Their ideas are getting a warm reception from younger voters, the millennials (born between 1982 and 2000), who have the most to gain from these policies. Many millennials have had trouble entering the workforce or forming their own households because of the lack of high-paying jobs and the burden of student loan debt.

Bernie Sanders-type policies have a lot of appeal to people stuck in gig jobs with Uber and Starbucks. This article explores the alliance of young and old under the banner of socialism. These ideas are not as far out on the fringe as most Americans imagine. In fact, recent polls have shown majority support for government-guaranteed jobs and close to majority support for guaranteed basic income, free money from the government with no work requirement.

These formerly fringe issues are now going mainstream. The result will be enormous increases in the national debt and eventually inflation as the only way to deal with the debt. Investors need to prepare now with increased allocations to hard assets such as land, gold, silver and fine art.

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.

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,
