Economics & Investing For Preppers

Here are the latest news items and commentary on current economics news, market trends, stocks, investing opportunities, and the precious metals markets. We also cover hedges, derivatives, and obscura. Most of these items are from the “tangibles heavy” contrarian perspective of SurvivalBlog’s Founder and Senior Editor, JWR. Today, we look at the recent Bitcoin rally. (See the Forex & Cryptos section.)

“As I’ve said many times on this site, the special cap-gains tax rate — more than any other cause — is why we have such huge growth in disparity between the rich and the rest. Capital gains are where the top 10% make most of their money — not in wages like the rest of the populace — yet they pay a much lower rate on that kind of income-earning than the much of the middle class pays on their kind of income.”

On the Bitcoin rally: Here’s the Single Most Dangerous Investment in 2021. This essay begins:

“Last year certainly qualifies as one of the most volatile in stock market history. Investors navigated their way through the widely followed S&P 500 losing over a third of its value in about a month. They also enjoyed a bounce-back rally for the ages, with the S&P 500 hitting new highs less than five months after finding a bottom on March 23.

If there’s one figure that stands out above all else, it’s that 10% of the roughly 3,700 stocks with a market cap of at least $300 million ended 2020 higher by at least 100%. That’s a head-scratching number considering the magnitude of the recession caused by the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic.

There’s no question that select equities and assets got ahead of themselves over the trailing nine months since the stock market bottomed. However, one investment looks to be the most dangerous of all. That investment, which I strongly believe should be avoided at all costs in 2021, is cryptocurrency bitcoin.”

  1. Merck&Co.Inc, is the main manufacturer of Ivermectin. With shares at $82.68 the company is
    said to be severely under valued. Hmm, just sayin. I’m not a big pharma hater and we don’t
    dabble in the market but taking a look see might be a good idea.

    1. Ivermectin, ‘Wonder drug’ from Japan: the human use perspective. ~~>2011 Feb 10. ncbi(dot)nlm(dot)nih(dot)gov

      “Originally introduced as a veterinary drug, it kills a wide range of internal and external parasites in commercial livestock and companion animals. It was quickly discovered to be ideal in combating two of the world’s most devastating and disfiguring diseases which have plagued the world’s poor throughout the tropics for centuries. It is now being used ~~>free-of-charge as the sole tool in campaigns to eliminate both diseases globally.”

      “There are few drugs that can seriously lay claim to the title of ‘Wonder drug’, penicillin and aspirin being two that have perhaps had greatest beneficial impact on the health and wellbeing of Mankind. But ivermectin can also be considered alongside those worthy contenders, based on its versatility, safety and the beneficial impact that it has had, and continues to have, worldwide—especially on hundreds of millions of the world’s poorest people.”

      “Despite decades of searching around the world, the Japanese microorganism remains the only source of avermectin ever found.1) Originating from a single Japanese soil sample and the outcome of the innovative, international collaborative research partnership to find new antiparasitics, the extremely safe and more effective avermectin derivative, ivermectin, was initially introduced as a commercial product for Animal Health in 1981. It is effective against a wide range of parasites, including gastrointestinal roundworms, lungworms, mites, lice and hornflies.”

      “Ivermectin is also highly effective against ticks, for example, the ixodid tick Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) microplus, one of the most important cattle parasites in the tropics and subtropics, which causes enormous economic damage. Indicative of the impact, in Brazil, where some 80% of the bovine herd is infested, losses total about $2 billion annually.13) Today, ivermectin is being used to treat billions of livestock and pets around the world, helping to boost production of food and leather products, as well as keep billions of companion animals, particularly dogs and horses, healthy.
      The ‘Blockbuster’ drug in the Animal Health sector, meaning that it achieved annual sales in excess of over US$1 billion, maintained that status for over 20 years. It is so useful and adaptable that it is also being used off-label, sometimes, illegally, for example to treat fish lice in the aquaculture industry, where it can have a negative impact on non-target organisms. It also has extensive uses in agriculture.” …

      “Following the registration of ivermectin (produced under the brand name Mectizan®) for human use in 1987, in a hitherto unprecedented move and with unheralded commitment, Mectizan® was donated by the manufacturing company, Merck & Co. Inc., to treat onchocerciasis in all endemic countries for as long as it was needed.
      The resultant drug donation programme was the first, largest, longest running and most successful of all—and proved a model for all others that have followed. Ivermectin began to be distributed in 1988, with operations being organized through the independent Mectizan Donation Program (MDP) established and funded by Merck.”

      [More uses for Ivermectin is listed in the article.]
      [GGHD] = Ivermectin was given to President Trump as a ~test of a ~Therapeutic for his case of Covid-19. President Trump reportedly ~volunteered to be a test subject.
      [~~Interesting read]
      A long post (with apologies) by me (GGHD), just to say, =

      1. “There’s a place in Heaven for people in charge of companies willing to give up billions in profit$ to help poor people.” [Merck&Co. didn’t away the entire hen house.]

      2. “There’s a place in Heaven for a billionaire willing to be a guinea pig in a drug test.”

      3. “Unfortunately, Globalists and their minions want everyone to get vaccinated; NOT NOT NOT just avail ourselves of a therapeutic.”

      4. “GGHD is NOT an expert in Stock Market investing. I’ll leave that to Ron and other people at SurvivalBlog.”

        1. GGDH: Ivermectin is being used widely as prophylaxis and post infection treatment with
          astonishingly high rate of success over all age groups. The use of Ivermectin is outlined in
          detail in the CovidCare protocol developed by the scientists and doctors at Eastern Virginia
          University School of Medicine.You can get a copy at
          All the information is out there one just has look for it.
          By the way we got completely out the stock market years ago after realizing that it is nothing more than an elaborate Ponzi Scheme run by our own Federal Reserve.

          The demand for Ivermectin(in pill form to treat humans for Covid disease) is far outpacing
          the supply.

          1. This is very encouraging, and I’ve been tracking this news as well! My belief is that we are going to learn a lot about not only SARS-COV-2, but all current efforts are also going to teach us about the prevention and treatment of many other ailments and illnesses. From this challenge, medical science may produce significant positive advances that improve (and preserve) life.

            Also watching the development of long acting antibodies which are very promising for several reasons in the prevention and treatment of COVID-19. At least one of these may be in production (or could be shortly) here in the United States.


            The strain of the pandemic (in and of itself, and in combination with all the other sources of strain) is showing itself in all aspects of our world. Resolving this — in the best ways available, and according to the voluntary participation of the people — will go a long way to recovery and restoration.

          2. Thank you for the Reply Ron, and the ~excellent information about Ivermectin, .
            Many Americans have decided that a Therapeutic is a ~safer option, than getting in line for a new vaccine.
            [It’s said by some scientists, that animals such as rats and hogs will be wary of NEW ‘free’ food and traps. The suspicious animals will watch the other animals before risking their own lives.]

            When I went to school, the determination of the value of a company stock was basically determined by:
            1. A price to earnings ratio,
            2. Dividend rate, and
            3. Book value of the company.

            Ron is correct about the inflated value of the Stock Market.
            The big investors will try to limit their exposure to complete financial loss.
            [Typically, by big campaign contributions to our politicians, and ~selling their stocks to small investors before an impending crash. … The news media says the TARP bailout didn’t cost the taxpayers anything. (I don’t believe them.) ….. The small investors did NOT receive a bailout.]

            A stock market saying about investing: “Bears can make money; Bulls can make money: pigs get slaughtered.”

            The financial advice at SurvivalBlog is more towards having ‘tangibles’ ~ and moving to a safe location ~> FIRST. … The Excellent advice can be found under the headings, at the top of the SurvivalBlog page, or by using the ‘search box’ too.

          3. Clarification… Long acting antibody therapies are not vaccines. This is a different medical strategy that conveys immediate immunity. I believe this approach has the potential to put the COVID-19 crisis into the dustbin of history.

  2. I have to ask this crowd a perhaps crazy question. At least it seems crazy to me but it nags me.

    Reason says this election is totally done. Trump has effectively conceded. The electoral college votes are certified. Most of his supporters in any meaningful position have called it quits. We seem very done.

    Yet I have this nagging feeling that maybe we are not done. The only semi logical piece of evidence is that the Democrats want him out even before the 20th via impeachment or the 25th Amendment. And that can be explained by spite and malice and a desire to totally discredit him and demoralize his supporters.

    But I feel like beyond spite and malice maybe I smell fear amongst them even though they appear to hold all the cards. Could be totally my imagination.

    Does anyone else have a feeling that there is a storm brewing BEFORE January 20th? ( I think most of us suspect big problems AFTER January 20th.) That this situation is not stable and decided for some unknown reason?

    Or is it just that after a year (four years really) of twists and turns I have just come to the conclusion that nothing can go in a straight line without a surprise for even two weeks?

    1. You aren’t alone. I’ve been accused of being fatalistic but there’s this little voice that won’t shut up. Hoping against hope that some miracle will happen to expose the traitors and criminals.
      Either way, we’re in for spicy times.

      1. I read somewhere that every year some 8 million Chinese fly into the U.S. It was a simple fact based on airline reporting. Why is that? How many of them are spies of one sort or another? How many of them buy property and assets of Americans taxed into poverty? When the great reset comes the only valiue I can see from learning Mandarin is that you will know approximately when they are going to shoot you in the back of the head. Our leaders are stupid or duplicitous or both and their only purpose in life is to enrich themselves at our expense. They have sold off America while we slept. They sold “citizenship” and allowed massive illegal immigration. The did this to dilute and replace your vote. This last election has laid bare their plan for us and it ain’t pretty.

    2. Our fight will continue in the courts, in the legislatures, and in the arena of ideas. Many of these processes will continue well beyond January 20th. The cases, arguments, and ideas have great merit. Our Republic must have fair, honest, transparent, and lawful elections. Every citizen should insist on this — regardless of party affiliation. Attempts by Democrats to toxify President Trump and Trump supporters who are seeking fair, honest, transparent, and lawful elections will be counterproductive.

      1. I agree with some of that but that is not really what I am talking about.

        I just have this nagging feeling that things are not complete in the next 12 days. And I am not even saying which side will prevail.

        And I could be all wet.

          1. Lol!

            As an SSBN submarine sailor for 23 years, I can tell you that Crimson Tide could be the worst submarine movie of all time. Utter BS from start to finish.

            On a side note, the bald guy in the board of inquiry was Captain Beard, a real Trident CO. They hired him to be the technical adviser for the movie and then disregarded everything he said.

        1. I think it’s prudent to stay frosty the next few weeks. Have cash on hand and be prepared to move in whatever direction is needed.
          Now is definitely not the time to let your guard down.

        2. I wonder myself what is going on but I may be spending too much time of what I call “tin foil hat” websites, they all seem to think that the video concession was a fake and that Trump has something big up his sleeve. I’m not seeing it. I don’t think anyone in the government is even paying attention to him anymore, they’re all trying to save their own skin by bailing out. Anything wacky he does is going to trigger the 25th Amendment in a heartbeat.

          1. This is not conspiracy. It is from JWR’s notes above. And it reads as if Bernie Sanders wrote it, which I so enjoy. We have more in common that different.

            At Zero Hedge: Why M1 Money Supply (Cash) is Skyrocketing Like No Time in History. A snippet:

            “As I’ve said many times on this site, the special cap-gains tax rate — more than any other cause — is why we have such huge growth in disparity between the rich and the rest. Capital gains are where the top 10% make most of their money — not in wages like the rest of the populace — yet they pay a much lower rate on that kind of income-earning than the much of the middle class pays on their kind of income.”

            Carry on

        3. JBH- i also have some doubt that this coup against Trump is over by the 20th. He made a 180 degree turn, in conceding, but I have to believe that he and others at the top know how the left works and knew they would use the mass gathering of Trump supporters to cause panic, much like the Nazi’s in Germany prior to WW2 and it is possible that he did so as a tactic to take off the pressure on him and his people, because it sure did not “sound” like him. The fact that the demos want him out before the 20th also smells, they may know something is coming also.. He is our commander in chief till then.

      2. T of A … I am going to respectfully disagree with 2 of the 3 arenas…courts and legislatures are no longer of use … at least vas I can see … maybe the arena of ideas is possible… but with the inundation of propaganda I question if that is a viable arena… God bless you

        1. I understand your concerns, and I share those too… Recent events have been terribly discouraging, and yet I am hopeful for a constructive resolution. There are some legislative actions in process, and we may start to see movement there. It’s late, no question about that. Too late? I surely hope not even though I am also very deeply troubled by all of it.

          …and I also believe that the rush to silence supporters of President Trump would have come whether or not there had been any upset or adverse incident at the rally on the 6th. Leftists were just too ready to silence too many. This had to have been in their action plans for some time — just my view. Strange that there is no waiting for the facts of the investigation(s) to be revealed.

    3. JBH, I’m with you. no way the fat lady has sung.
      God is -still- in control.
      So many things DJT had done/is doing that don’t telegraph a man who has given up. (He’s still putting out EO’s as of 1/5/21; that’s not done by someone who’s thrown in the towel.)
      I am liking a fellow named Jeff Prather ( He’s ex CIA, etc and has a solid head on his shoulders. His info is fascinating, especially yesterday’s podcast.
      To all – keep powder dry, be prepared – but exercise your faith! God says, Trust Me for the outcome!!!

    4. JBH,
      I have similar feelings about our political events. Things just do not seem finished at this time. I do not know DJT but he appears to me to be a man of surprises and not one to loudly broadcast his moves ahead of time. It looks like a bumpy road ahead of us .
      Regardless of future events ,we put our faith in God and try to please Him with our actions.

    5. Remember the pendulum always swings back. If the Senate 50/50 split can hold out for the next 2 year cycle elections then we might be okay. Not all Democrats are against the Constitution, or rule of law, or non-patriots.

          1. Representative Vernon Jones is a great example of a Democrat who has decided to switch parties. I’ve heard him interviewed several times, find him thoughtful, reasoned and intelligent, and believe he represents a greater number of Democrats than we might realize. Perhaps there will be more who decide to make the change! In fact, we may see seismic shifts involving the old guard of both major parties. Maybe the formation of a new party?


          2. I used to work under Vernon Jones in the early 2000’s in Dekalb county and IMHO, he isn’t someone you want to put on a pedestal, unless that pedestal is within a jail cell.

      1. IMO the pendulum won’t be swing back next time around or ever. There’s the old saying that “demographics is destiny.”

        Twenty years ago Pat Buchanan said, “If the GOP does not do something about mass immigration, mass immigration will do something about the GOP. By naturalizing and registering half a million to a million foreign-born a year, the Democrats are locking up future presidential elections and throwing away the key.”

        They won’t be done tabulating the 2020 census numbers until sometime later this year but one thing is already certain: the white population continues to decline as a percentage of the population. Between 2000 and 2010, the white population lost 10 percentage points, and nine more between 2010 and 2020. Much of that was due to immigration boosting non-white numbers but the most disturbing number of all from the 2020 census is that the white population actually lost numbers for the first time since the United States was founded. Demographics is destiny. Most of these immigrants are voting Democrat. IMO the pendulum won’t be swinging back to the GOP ever again unless some sort of unforeseen major even occurs over the next four years, and even then, the GOP’s chances are slim.

      2. Well said, Jima.

        Not all Democrats are against the Constitution, or rule of law, or non-patriots.

        I hope each of us are able to judge the individual’s actions and look past our judgements regarding party or anything else.

        More work, yes. Worth the effort, IMO.

        Carry on

  3. Despite signs to the contrary,Gold at or near top:I certainly hope that Mr.Radomski can read
    and understand his charts and grafts because I doubt that Egon van Greyerz and Lynette Zang working together could figure it out.

    1. Regarding our economy, wherever gold lands, food is still paramount. Many say that the economy has been damaged so big by pandemic measures. According to this the farm economy, at least in Minnesota, where this newsletter comes from has been hurting for a very long time: As the farm economy enters a sixth year of basement-level commodity prices and lack of access to consistent markets, there has been a lot of talk about the financial impact it’s having on farmers and the rural communities that rely on them. No won-der: U.S. farm bankruptcy rates jumped 20% in 2019, an eight-year high, according to federal court data. The 2019 median farm income for U.S. farm households was negative $1,383, according to the USDA’s Economic Research Service. In recent years, roughly half of farm households have had negative farm income each year, and the majority of the total income of farm families comes from off-farm sources. Dairying has been especially hard hit as mega-operations contribute to an oversupply of milk; Minnesota alone lost 250 dairy farms in 2019, according to the USDA.

      Here is the quote’s source from my friends in Minnesota:

      If you read further into this newsletter, p. 20-21, you may be inspired by the kindness and resourcefulness of people.

      Carry on

  4. Ammunition continues to rise and be even shorter supply for not as popular calibers.
    Last Friday I stopped in Academy and all they has was 12GA steel waterfowl shot. I stopped in 2 days ago and they had half of what was on the shelf before. No other to be seen or found.
    It would appear, rightfully so, that manufactures are focused on the most popular caliber production right now.
    Reloading components continue to dwindle and disappear as well.
    Home laser setups, airsoft and adult air rifles will keep your skills up as well as dry run techniques at home.
    For those who paid attention and stocked up take a percentage and use it for training and practice. I caution you against taking any more than decided on though because we know it’s fun and it will disappear.
    JWR has spoken many times about magazines as investments. In the 90s I traded 2 19rd Glock “drop free” mags with no “LEO/Military use only” markings for a Marlin 30-30 scoped with ammo. They were just that valuable.

      1. I am looking for a VPN that works with Chromebook, even though the whole reason for a Google-created operating system (Chromebook) is the LACK of privacy that it affords the user. I have tried several VPNs but none worked on my Chromebook. Help !

      1. Not necessarily true, my understanding is the Senate would have to convict him AND bar him to keep him from running. It’s two separate decisions. Now, politically that might not be a bad idea for them since any of those clowns that want to run the circus would not have to worry about him running against them, but I don’t think they have time to do it, although I guess they could do it after 1/20.

        1. A curious technical question… Can a President be impeached and convicted AFTER leaving office? We are living in such a strange world indeed! Anyone know about this?

    1. This event was about killing Trump’s future. If a politician is responsible for the actions of a few, then every official in Seattle, Portland, New York, etc… should be removed.

      I, like many others, believe this “insurrection” (which is what was not) was instigated by the left.

      Further, I see many “political types” (including pundits) distancing themselves from Trump. I have previously pointed out on this SBlog that they are what we call “survivors”. They’ll do or say anything just to hang onto their well paying gigs.

  5. JBH, you are not alone in these nagging feelings. Every time God works a miracle, besides the very air He allows us to breathe, He does it in a manner that allows ONLY HIM to recieve the glory. Perhaps Trump’s first election was that miracle. Perhaps not. God is not wringing His hands nor should His children, even though I do constantly. Help my unbelief.
    On a different note. My local BiMart has not had an ammo delivery since before Christmas. They normally get ammo delivered once or twice a week. Curious.

    1. Regarding Gods hand, I have been considering the same thing.

      I also wonder from other reading I have been doing, it Trump did what God wanted him to do (imperfectly like all humans but effectively) but now God wants him out of the way, because the next part of God’s plan will squash whoever is in the Oval Office.

      In a little more specifics, I really wonder if there is an economic mess coming that nobody including Trump or anybody can do anything about and therefore the winner of this election is really the loser. I wonder if Jonathan Cahn’s Shmitah concept has some validity? If so 2021-2022 could be very bad.

      But I digress. And I don’t know anything. Just got this nagging thing in the back of my skull. And while I have been concerned for some time about the long and intermediate term, this nagging is about the short term. Short being next 12 days.

      1. I agree that losing this election could be a political success as I’m at a loss to see how we do not move into a world wide depression. And, with the proposed democratic plans put forth thus far, the depression will be excelerated. Pray I’m wrong.

        Today marked the true beginning of the end of our freedoms as Christians. God go with us.

        1. I share your concern about the economic consequences coming… Serious economic adversity may be coming soon, and it may be accelerated not only by the proposals on which the Democrats ran their 2020 campaigns, but also following the summer city riots, and the current ravaging of what remains of free speech. I think this does not bode well for the Democrats, or really for any of us.

  6. The blog from the IMF is not surprising at all- they want a global social credit score just like china. They will gleefully move to a digital currency which only tightens the noose around those who don’t comply.

  7. With all due respect, Christians sitting on their butts whining and doing nothing and expecting God to fix their problems reminds me of a story you’ve all heard.

    A man was up on his roof while flood waters raged beneath him threatening to wash his house away and drown him. He prayed his guts out for God to save him. A boat soon came by and offered to save him. He said no thanks, God will save me. Next a canoe came by with the same offer, and he gave the same reply, God will save me. A third guy on a jet ski guy offered to save him but he again said God would rescue him. Just then the flood washed his house away and he drowned. He got up to heaven and asked God, “I prayed my guts out, why didn’t you save me??” And God said, “I sent boat, a canoe, and a jet ski, what more did you want!”

    When today’s Christians get up to heaven they’re going to ask God, “We’ve been praying for 100 years for you to save our country, why did you fail us?” And God will reply, “I gave you the Second Amendment, the example of the Founding Fathers, and AR-15’s, what more did you want?!!”

    1. ST; i have similar thoughts. We lack a Godly-leader or leaders. We need “righteous” anger or indignation. We need Christian Maccabees. And unfortunately most of the current “church” leadership is not up to the task. Jehovah jireh. wm

      1. Um, the Maccabees were not church people, if I remember correctly. Just ordinary folks who were willing to stand up. If you want leadership, look in the mirror. Then saddle up.

        Carry on

  8. Avalanche Lily: There are millions of us that are alive today thanks to the Polio,Smallpox,Measles,Pneumonia vaccines that would respectfully disagree with you.

  9. Today is an ongoing virtual kristallnacht. Twitter, youtube, Facebook, Instagram, payment processors, hosting providers, you name it… are suspending accounts of anyone who supported Trump. With Congress trying to get Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment and Congress filing letters of impeachment – with less than 2 weeks left of the Presidency – it smells like panic on steroids.

    I expect a time of persecution is coming for Christians and conservatives. Good time to get those last minute beans, bullets, and bandaids, along with some cash. Whether you like Trump or hate him doesn’t matter. This is Fascism pure and simple. I pray to Almighty God for protection and mercy on His people.

    1. Indeed. Just found out Parler was black listed from Android, and on the way for apple. All major platforms are purging anyone who doesn’t toe the Marxist line. I expect alternate media and websites like this are soon to follow.
      They are closing off any ability for conservatives or Libertarians to virtually congregate and communicate.
      Cutting off and restricting an opponents communications is a precursor to a first strike. It doesn’t matter whether you approve of the Capital Incident or not, the communist and Marxist have declared war on all of us.
      God guide us. Please.
      JWR, I remember awhile back you said SB had back up servers incase they tried to shut you down. Might want to start checking all is in order.
      Take care all.

    2. Sure does sounds like “panic on steroids”.

      What, pray tell, could they possibly be afraid of?

      Perhaps they fear the sanitizing effects of the light of day and the revelation of truth.

      They can’t possibly allow the truth to come out, but I truly don’t believe they can stop it at this point either. Too much evidence has been revealed, and the reveals just keep on coming.

  10. Things are happening so fast my head is spinning. I don’t think Trump intended for there to be violence at the Capitol, but it’s most certainly being spun that way. Conservatives are being portrayed as the reason for all evil in this country and the media is on board. Big tech is shutting down communication for those it doesn’t approve, and we are manipulated like I’ve never seen before. The “thought police” are dictating our feelings and most don’t see what’s happening. We are being shaped and formed by what big tech and the media wish for us to see. This is not freedom, this is pure evil.

  11. Praying as well, SaraSue. I’m thinking on the lines of what Avalanche Lily said…perhaps a war soon. Italy is talking about our election fraud and has proof. Social media being shut down to a certain group of people. So much going on. Communism. PJGT is correct.. We may need to go back to snail mail to communicate. I’d be happy to pay for a written subscription to SurvivalBlog to keep up with you all. God bless us all.

    1. Interesting
      The Pattern has similarities to the Röhm Putsch, Presidente Trump has broken his word, agreements including those he signed himself withhin the hour.

  12. I have a few thoughts. Is America being punished for killing all of the unborn babies that abortionists have murdered over the past decades ? Despite the fact that we WON the election and it was STOLEN ? Despite the fact that we Christians prayed for Trump to win ? Perhaps we must go through the crucible of depression and civil war and servitude to the Chinese to purify our nation and reduce the population by a few million soy boy and soy girl SJWs and other useless and/or harmful and dangerous traitors.
    I am truly confused. Perhaps Avalanche Lily can share a few thoughts. She seems to have a handle of the spiritual side of things. Thank you.
