The Personal Prepping Audit

Instead of our usual 4,000 word long discussion of something we have three topics this morning.  Although, any one of them could be treated as book length material.First is Donald Trump promising big news this afternoon.  Then, there’s one of our...

The Markets – REAL Stand Up Comedy

In “those exciting days of yesteryear” I used to be on teams in the early 1970’s that would go into the radio station conference room and write either biting sports commentary OR we would write humor for the morning show. This uniquely qualifies us...

Will Markets Face a “Shutdown Discontinuity”?

Those of us who like to follow long wave economics (not exactly a normal pastime) tend to look at “the news” trying to place it in some kind of historical framework in order to use it as guidance as to what MIGHT be coming along next. For some reason, I...

Recovery of Lost Technologies

Now that I’ve published the Small Trader Power Tool set – and subscribers have enough back-loaded historical data (nothing proprietary, just the Aggregate Indices we create) –  to at least begin back-testing their own trading ideas, I’m...

Caution for Silver Bulls

In Monday’s column, I gave you some pretty impressive data on gold and how it has been a good long-term performer since we bought our “lone coin” back in 2001. This was naturally followed with a number of emails from silver permabulls who told me I...

Yes, Gold has Kicked the Market’s Butt

As always, we don’t offer financial advice, although if you’re a bull (one who expects stocks to go up) this might be an interesting week.  Part of a financial “education.” I referred to this (possible) timing of markets back in December when I...

Coping: Ure’s Compact Digital Cosmology

Know why LBGT, social media, and so many other changes in human behavior are ascendant?  No fear!  Ure’s been evolving a new “Compact Digital Cosmology” to answer just such inquiries. One of the points in my latest book (“Psychocartography:...

Markets Eye Possible “National Emergency Weekend?”

“The Wall” is Trump’s “Hooverville” as we figure it. So, before we get into the Consumer Price report, the on-going government shutdown and the like, a bit of future modeling is in order.  Along with a grand lesson in management. The...

Time for a Government Review Panel

What is a Government Review Panel (GRP)?  What we’re tossing out today is an idea for a Big Picture review of how government performance is going. Not by the Legislative brand.  Why, when there’s a government shutdown, they can even work through the...

The Back Pain Detective

Not your “normal” Peoplenomics topic, for sure.  But, this is not so much about my specific back pain fixing, so much as it’s a lesson in using available resources and applying rigorous process to attain a designed result.This coming Saturday,...

Prepping: What’s a “Survival Radio?”

Damn-fine question, that.  By the end of today’s column, you may have evolved an opinion and along the path, you’ll learn about an obscure American radio company that even most hams don’t know about. But let’s tackle the question, first. ...

Econ War with Mexico: Border Monetization

I can’t count the time’s I have told you this was coming:  You see, we’re on an escalation path with regards to U.S. relations with multiple countries in South and Central America.  And – it’s all about money. First, we are continuing to...
