      As the population dwindles, all the social programs are collapsing for they were NEVER designed properly from the outset. They are based on a Ponzi scheme where they rely on taxing a growing younger population to service the benefits of the older generation. This was the entire scheme behind Obamacare. Force the youth to buy insurance they do not need to reduce the cost for the elderly.

      These findings were a huge surprise to those in government. They did not think it was even possible.

    Here’s what’s actually going on in that beast known as The Economy:

    Globalism is winding down as a decade of Central Bank machinations reach their limits of deception, leaving the major trading nations with little more than comparative disadvantages.

    Europe is dissolving into political chaos.

    Japan is cannibalizing itself in preparation for its return to the Tokugawa shogunate.

    China is groaning with factories that turn out too much stuff;

    America is groaning with so much of that stuff that it’s turning into Yard Sale Nation.

    In the background of all that are the problematic flows of oil on tankers through dangerous chokepoints like the Straits of Molucca and the Straits of Hormuz, with a looming horizon on the supply as US shale oil production chokes to death on unpayable debt.

      Good summary OOTB. Not a bright future in the US given the demographic trends, introduction of AI into the economy, and the loss of work ethic among the populus. The next generation (my kids) will not have the same life. I am not looking forward to my empty nester days.

        Thanks Charles…….needless to say, it will be interesting going forward….
        Looking back to the 60’s , who would have thought, the USofA, would be so screwed up.
        Should have been a wake up call with JFK, Bobby, and Martin……just insane.
        I guess my grandmother could have said the same thing….WW1 WW2…, horse carts to flying machines.

    Anybody else feel this was a strange day in the PM markets? Let’s count the ways.
    GG was the most active stock on the NYSE. 109 Million shares. Barrick (GOLD) went up; NEM went down upon their announcement that they’ll jointly develop Nevada. April gold closed down $5.80 but HUi was up a healthy 3.04%. GDX, GDXJ and GLD all closed down. GPL jumped 13.1% for some reason on highest volume in many months. Spanky commented on the lousy chart in December so I bought some at .579. Still holding! Boeing closed down $22.53 but DOW still went up 200. What’s one more deadly plane crash? As I said,,,,,,,,,,,one strange day!

    John is one of the best macro analysts out there. Always enjoy listening. Don’t think the average person out there can really understand what John is talking about though. Most go from one day to the next. May be a bit colder, hotter or whatever but life goes on……….When they lose there job in a slowdown, they’ll live on the unemployment and hide from the guys trying to repossess that new Pickup they are behind on…………

    As some might recall, I have not been very concerned about Mexico’s new government when it comes to mining. So it is good to know that Kootenay’s president and CEO James McDonald actually thinks it’s probably an improvement over the previous administration…
