Economics & Investing For Preppers

Here are the latest items and commentary on current economics news, market trends, stocks, investing opportunities, and the precious metals markets. We also cover hedges, derivatives, and obscura. And it bears mention that most of these items are from the “tangibles heavy” contrarian perspective of JWR. (SurvivalBlog’s Founder and Senior Editor.) Today’s focus is on copper. (See the Commodities section.)

This month (September, 2018) is the 10-year anniversary of the financial disaster of 2008. After many billions of Dollars in bailouts (paid by our taxes, and burdening the next generation with a mountain of debt), the economy has recovered, and both the stock bubble and housing bubble have resumed. The folks at The Burning Platform point out some cold, hard facts: 10 YEARS LATER – NO LESSONS LEARNED.

Please send your economics and investing news tips to JWR. (Either via e-mail of via our Contact form.) These are often especially relevant, because they come from folks who particularly watch individual markets. And due to their diligence and focus, we benefit from fresh “on target” investing news. We often get the scoop on economic and investing news that is probably ignored (or reported late) by mainstream American news outlets. Thanks!

  1. Not only do I not believe that this is the time to jump back into the copper Market but I also believe that this is not the time to be in Commodities in general. As one of the other articles noted, this is the 10th anniversary of the 2008 debacle. Does anyone remember how well Commodities did then?
