Disclaimers and Disclosure: Per the SEC Investment Advisers Act of 1940 (as amended): I am not a paid investment counselor or adviser . I am not a stockholder of any company. I am not employed by any company. I receive no payment or benefit from any company in exchange for my investment recommendations. I do not make stock buying recommendations. Make all investments at your own risk.

Furthermore, (per ): I accept cash-paid advertising. To the best of my knowledge, as of the date of this updated posting (December 11, 2014), none of my advertisers that sell the products mentioned in articles posted to date have solicited me or paid me to write any reviews or endorsements, nor have they provided me any free or reduced-price gear in exchange for any reviews or endorsements. I am not a stock holder in any company. I do, however, benefit from sales as an Amazon affiliate, with modest sales commissions.

Where I stand:

I hold to to the of economics.

My view of the current global economic situation is that we are in the early stages of a massive liquidity crisis, caused by central bank interest rate manipulation that caused massive malinvestment in equities and real estate. There are trillions of dollars in bad debts that need to be “unwound.” Meanwhile, the derivatives market has grown to enormous proportions and could implode at any time. (See my background article: Derivatives–The Mystery Man Who’ll Break the Global Bank at Monte Carlo.

As a survivalist, I strongly believe that you should get your Beans, Bullets, and Band-Aids squared away before you “invest” any extra capital in any investment vehicle!
