Episode 99, When Is This Puppy Going to Blow?

Time for some speculation, but with a little bit of logic and analysis thrown in as usual on The Shrugging Out Podcast.

Bad news seems to be pouring in from every corner of the globe. Is the "stuff" getting ready to hit the fan? Everyone wants to know when that will be.

Unfortunately, nobody can predict when the Collapse will arrive. In fact, few have even bothered to define what it is.

In this show I offer some basic metrics for distinguishing The Collapse from more ordinary economic downturns.

But being able to say with some confidence, "Yup, this is it!" isn't the same as saying when "It" is about to arrive. So I press on further to speculate what you can look for to determine for yourself when the Collapse is near and that it's time for your final pre-Collapse actions.

As always, please keep in mind that nobody can predict this with any precision. And realize that the Collapse will be a chaotic and dangerous time for us all.

  1. Pete,

    Another great episode - and I can't wait to hear the follow on 100th edition taking a look at your thoughts on how the great crash will unfold.

    Many thanks for all you continue to do, from one of your UK listeners.

  2. Many thanks, "Ano", for your comments. It's great having you and others from the UK as listeners! Cheers, and stay safe.

  3. You got it all wrong :)

    Forget Gold, Buy Twinkies and Bullets

  4. I'm pretty sure I didn't even mention gold, but thanks for the comment.


    I haven't read it yet but if you have the time I'm curious what you think about it
