This is where the general public will sour on the economy, when it hits their wallets.

I think that is why Trump didn’t pull the trigger on attacks against Iran. 

But we still haven’t seen any inflation from the tariffs. The supply chain eats it

If he had attacked them, oil and gas would have skyrocketed. It is another reason why that war would be viewed very unfavorably.

Oh I agree. I think 70+% of American people are against all these wars.

Sell it dude. 

Unless you're holding out for the final bubble. Prob won't happen until the next recession though...everyone will briefly get scared and rush into crypto before they realize it's worthless and dump it.

Normalize interest rates, shrink the balance sheet, execute better fiscal policy, end monetary experiments, dont go to war, solid things like that would be a good start.

To show how messed up insurance is again. I went to the doc for my annual physical, which is suppose to be covered by insurance 100%. Well because I got a referral for physical therapy on my shoulder it became a sick visit and I had a co pay. It wasn’t much but I called the doctor’s office to complain and they said that’s the rules.

The worst part about QE is that it's going to happen again. The FED thinks it was a massive success. 

Biggest government handout in history and it almost all went to the rich.

Man, I feel it in my bones. Massive inflation is on the horizon.


It will devastating once its out of control.


I am not even sure how to prepare for it. Any ideas besides metals and crypto?
