Informed Consent: The Vaccine Safety Data You Need

You know, it doesn’t have to be this way.
To combat vaccine skepticism, or hesitancy, I have a simple solution for the authorities; stop spinning the data and start being transparent and consistent.
It’s really not that hard to grasp. People don’t like uncertainty and that is often a function of authorities being unclear or inconsistent.
The bottom line is that the short-term safety data for the 3 major vaccines shows that while they may be far preferable to getting Covid, they are among the least safe vaccines ever produced.
Informed people would almost certainly elect to receive the vaccines nonetheless, but they absolutely need the data.
We deliver it, you make your own decisions.

Commodities Boom Only In ‘Early Innings’, Much Higher To Go | Saxo Bank CIO

Back in December, Saxo Bank’s Steen Jakobsen predicted a massive boom in commodity prices was dead ahead. Not many others shared that view back then.

But, boy, was he ever right. Commodity prices have exploded in the five months since that interview was recorded.

And more important, in his eyes we ain’t seen nothin’ yet. He predicts commodity prices are going to continue heading higher, a LOT higher, from here.

Why?

Growing demand for limited supply (demand push inflation). And further fresh $trillions in upcoming stimulus programs (monetary inflation).

Infrastructure around the world is being rebuilt — much of it badly needed. Tens of $trillions will be spent over

Stock Prices To Drop IN HALF Foresees Market Analyst Eric Hickman

WATCH PART 2 (https://youtu.be/RhvVezOrvkw) & then SCHEDULE YOUR FREE PORTFOLIO REVIEW at https://www.wealthion.com/

Money manager Eric Hickman is a number-cruncher who’s also a student of history.

And looking at the past 100 years of market data, he’s forced to conclude that the stock market is due for a whopper of a correction — one that could happen at any moment…

Over the past century, the market has had 8 "good" and "bad" cycles, all of them roughly equal in duration. The cycle we’re currently in is the rosiest "good" cycle on record – and it’s looking very long in tooth.

Hickman observes that each good cycle ends with the investing public going "all in" on stocks. It definitely appears we are at that stage now.

And he warns that the opposite is true of bad cycles. By their

Every hour of every day, we’re bombarded by attempts to influence our behavior — what to buy, how to vote, what to click on next…

And most of the time, we are completely oblivious to them.

As humans, we have psychological triggers that, once activated, make us much more vulnerable to the schemes of marketers, politicians and anyone else looking to manipulate us — as well as to separate us from our freedoms and our money.

Few people alive understand how Capitol Hill and Wall Street work better than former Congressman and financier David Stockman.

And he is deeply concerned that our current political, monetary and fiscal policies are setting the stage for an epic breakdown in the economy as well as the financial markets.

Risk is being grossly mispriced right now. Asset prices are being distorted into ridiculously dangerous territory by investors caught up in a flood of cheap liquidy as well as a widespread speculative mania.

Bond Market Troubles Will End The Fed’s Printing THIS YEAR Warns Money Manager | Bill Fleckenstein

Those cheering today’s sky-high asset prices say they don’t worry because “the Fed has the market’s back”

And they haven’t been wrong to-date. There’s no doubt that the Fed’s $trillions in monetary stimulus has pushed the prices of stocks, bonds, real estate and nearly every other asset class to all-time highs.

But the Fed’s ability to print money with impunity may not last forever. In fact, veteran money manager Bill Fleckenstein warns it could end this year.

And Bill isn’t alone.

61% of business economists say inflation risks are the highest they’ve been in two decades, and 46% of members surveyed by the National Association of Business Economists predict the Fed

Suffering From Burnout? Learn ‘The Burnout Fix’ From Psychologist Dr Jacinta Jiménez

In today’s culture, "burnout" has become a silent epidemic — one that long predated Covid 19 but has certainly been made worse by it.

Burnout often results when the demands of our work and/or our lives become mismatched to our capacities as human beings.

As many of us are working harder for longer in an uncertain economy while simultaneously juggling the responsibilities we have in our personal lives, it’s not hard to see that it’s increasingly easy for that mismatch to occur.

In this podcast, we learn effective strategies for coping with burnout — including ways to avoid it altogether — from Dr. Jacinta Jiménez, a Stanford trained, award winning, licensed psychologist and author of the newly-published book, The Burnout Fix.

EVERYONE Wants To Invest In Farmland. Here’s How To Do It Explains Fund Manager | Craig Wichner

SCHEDULE YOUR FREE PORTFOLIO REVIEW with Mike & John and the New Harbor Financial team here: https://www.greylockpeak.com/

Farmland is a “holy grail” asset class for many investors.

It’s tangible, produces income, and has inherent underlying value — making it a great inflation hedge.

It’s supply constrained. Mother Nature isn’t making any more of it –and in total, farm acreage around the world is being lost to development, drought, etc.

Historically it’s an asset class that produces double-digit annual returns while remaining largely uncorrelated with the stock market, making it a valuable component for portfolio diversification.

And even better, it offers the chance to do well by doing good. There are increasing opportunities to convert poorly-managed conventional farmland to

Do you feel like no matter how hard you work, it’s harder and harder to get ahead?

There’s a good explanation for that. And it’s maddening.

The government intentionally & dramatically underreports the true cost of living, and that fake low number is what most employers use when they set the wages they pay.

So your paycheck isn’t growing nearly as fast as it needs to in order to stay ahead of inflation.

Highly-respected market researcher Luke Gromen concludes that we’re living in a unique period of history given that we currently facing three massive threats:

1) the first bursting global sovereign debt bubble in over 100 years
2) the first time in 50+ years that foreign central banks are no longer financing the US economy (i.e., they have stopped growing their holdings of US Treasurys)
3) the US’ long-standing "petrodollar" advantage is eroding as other countries increasingly strike deals to trade key commodities in non-USD currencies

How Real Estate Investing Protects Against Inflation

This is changing the rules of investing – and most folks with traditional portfolios are going be caught completely unaware by this, warns real estate expert, Victor Menasce.

Which is why now is an extremely good time to consider adding or increasing income-producing real estate to your portfolio, Menasce advises — because inflation works to the real estate equity holder’s advantage.

Oil Price Spike Next Blow To Economy | Petroleum Expert Art Berman Issues Warning

Like it or not, our modern way of life remains extremely dependent on oil. And even using the rosiest of forecasts, that’s not going to change anytime soon.

If it indeed occurs, it will be another painful gut-shot to a global economy still struggling to recover from the damage inflicted by the pandemic.

When the price of oil rises, the price of everything goes up. And there are many vulnerable businesses that simply won’t be able to withstand this double-digit increase to their cost structure in today’s environment.
