    There appears to be a growing consensus that inflation, which is greatly under-reported already, may be getting ready to surge. This should come as no surprise to anyone who reads this article because I have often said that “you can’t “print” your way to prosperity”. The conjuring up of …Read More

  2. Weekly Article 1/8/2021 – ADV Enter… BRM (Banana Republic Mode)

    As we are nearing the end of the first week of 2021, I am pretty sure that the hope many have had that the calendar change may bring some real change is being dashed.

    I didn’t want to be too negative going into Christmas here, but I have to bring up the fact that the “Coronavirus bailout” appears to be anything BUT that.

  6. Weekly Article 12/09/2020 – ADV Debt is NOT Wealth

    I have written many times that all prices are fake. To make a point, total financial “wealth” is up nearly three times since the year 1990. In 1990 global “wealth” was around $80 Trillion and global debt clocked in at $80 Trillion. Fast forward to today and global “wealth” is estimated t…Read More

    As I write this on November 24th. the DOW hit 30,000 for the first time and the S&P 500 also hit another new record.

    Happy Thanksgiving! I just wanted to write this note to thank everyone for your support and trust during these trying times that we are all enduring in 2020.

  10. Weekly Article 11/19/2020 – ADV Back to Normal?

    Here we are heading into the holiday season 2020 and it sure feels different this year than in years past.
