VIDEO: Market Meltdown Update

We’ve been covering the spread of the coronavirus so intently over the past 30 days that we’d understand if you might have forgotten that, actually,  we usually focus on many other topics on this website than global pandemics. One topic we’ve tracked closely for years is the highly unsustainable levels […]

Off The Cuff: The End Of China’s Exceptionalism?

Beneath its facade as a rising superpower, the social contract within China has been deteriorating. And now with the covid-19 virus dealing a 1-2 punch of a public health crisis and an economic crisis, the populace may be nearing a breaking point. They have traded freedom and fair treatment in […]

Coronavirus Situation Is Quickly Going From Bad To Worse.

The situation with the coronavirus is quickly going from bad to worse. Hundreds of cases breaking out across the world, dozens of new deaths. And, of course, these are just the official numbers. Many countries have inadequate/non-existent testing procedures, so the true numbers may be quite a bit higher. As […]

Coronavirus Containment Has Failed

Within and without China, the coronavirus continues to rage on. A leaked report claims that actual covid-19 cases within China are 52x higher than the 78K reported by authorities. Whether true or not, that estimate comports with the massive heavy-handed response the government has been pursuing there. Outside of China, […]

The Coronavirus Pandemic Is A Crisis Now Obvious To All

As 19th century German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer claimed, “All truth passes through three stages: First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as self-evident.” After weeks of denial, and attacks on voices like Peak Prosperity who dared question the “Everything is fine!” narrative, world governments […]

Sven Henrich: Did The Coronavirus Just Infect The Markets?

Recorded just a few hours ago, we’re rushing this interview out to you given its timeliness. Is the coronavirus the pin that will end the 10 year-long Everything Bubble? Quite possibly, cautions Sven Henrick, technical analyst and lead market strategist for Northman Trader. For too many years now, the financial markets […]

Why Your Friends & Family Aren’t Taking The Coronavirus Seriously Enough

Probably one of the most vexing things an obvious crisis like this coronavirus pandemic (well, obvious to you and us, at any rate) is all the people who refuse to face it. They’ll exploit every possible psychological defense in their arsenal to resist discussing or even hearing about the crisis. […]

Coronavirus: Time To Prepare Is Running Out

OK…despite more worldwide infections than ever, the WHO has decided to stop using the (technically very accurate) term “pandemic” to describe covid-19, presumably because they don’t want to scare folks. The CDC is claiming that the US is not seeing “community level” spreading of the virus. But of course it […]

The Coronavirus Is Swiftly Breaching Defenses Across The World

Things are now starting to get fast and furious. Outside of China, covid-19 is swiftly breaching defense lines all over the world. Italy is suddenly in big trouble — with the military being called in to enforce city quarantines.  Iran, South Korea & Japan similarly find themselves overwhelmed as new […]

Coronavirus Cases Doubling Overnight In Many Countries

Boy this is not good… Covid-19 cases are leaping higher in disparate countries around the globe — doubling overnight in South Korea, Italy and Iran. New research continues to clarifying how *extremely* contagious this virus is (as the rash of worldwide infections confirms). It increasingly looks like the only hope […]

REPLAY VIDEO: Coronavirus Q&A Webinar #2

Here’s the replay video of Friday’s “Ask Anything” Coronavirus Q&A webinar #2. Why is this restricted to Peak Prosperity’s premium subscribers? Two main reasons: One — we expect a number of our answers to be our ‘best guesses’ given the incomplete data available. We don’t feel it appropriate to put […]

The Coronavirus Pandemic Is Accelerating Worldwide

Outside of the lockdown within China, covid-19 cases are accelerating across the globe. The virus has truly jumped the defense line. It’s now a true pandemic, with countries all over the world reporting huge percent increases in the number of infected cases. We already know it has reached epidemic status […]

Why I’m Ramping Up My Coronavirus Preparations

In yesterday’s video (Coronavirus Infections Outside Of China Are Growing Exponentially) from Feb 19th, 2020, I put out the science behind why a second exposure may be worse than the first. That’s anything but proven at this point, but the fact that both SARS and MERS are that way, and […]

Coronavirus Infections Outside Of China Are Growing Exponentially

In yesterday’s video, we warned that the coming two weeks will be crucial in determining how bad the pandemic will be. The early results are not encouraging. New cases continue to climb in the rest of Asia — Japan, Korea and Singapore are being hit hardest. And now we have […]

Coronavirus Pandemic: The Next Two Weeks Are Critical

While China remains largely in lockdown, covid-19 cases in the rest of the world are at a key juncture. To-date, confirmed cases have been lower than feared. Though increasingly, we’re suspecting that’s due to inadequate testing & reporting. And the cases we *do* know of (now at ~1,000) appear to […]

Coronavirus: The Calm Before The Storm?

Good updates on the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic (aka covid-19) are becoming harder to obtain as governments tighten their grip on news sources. The data being shared, particularly by the Chinese, are increasingly hard to believe. They don’t match the massive response the government is undertaking. Likewise, outside of China, reported […]

Why Covid-19 Demands Our Full Attention

There’s a reason we’ve re-directed so much of our attention towards reporting on and trying to understand the novel coronavirus (covid-19) that originated in Wuhan, China in December. The heart of our approach is to be “systems thinkers.” “Learn how to see.  Realize that everything connects to everything else” ~ […]
