Here we are at the end of 2017 with more “truth bombs” released than I could have imagined! In fact, I believe we probably received more “truth” in just one year than collectively in all of human history. This is a sad statement because it also means we have lived behind more lies than at any time prior. Also surprising is none individually have cracked the dam called “confidence”. But do not be fooled as it looks as if the entire dam is moving, particularly in the last few weeks!
As we have stressed all year long and prior, our entire lifestyle relies on credit …and credit relies on confidence. The “truth bomb” thesis from the very beginning came from our belief that confidence will break once enough lies are fully and obviously exposed showing our entire lives (standard of living) as a fallacy. The global standard of living has evolved hand in hand with the credit bubble, it will also deflate hand in hand as the bubble pops. “Truth” will be the catalyst!
The topic is so broad it had to be broken down into 3 (possibly 4?)parts. Our goal is to build categories from individual stories shedding light for you the reader to connect dots. During the year, we heard from readers asking “why” we discuss, politics, the rule of law, geopolitics/international tensions rather than sticking to economics, finance, and ultimately silver/gold? The answer is simple, as the various lies are exposed and the dominoes begin to fall, each truth will create a drop in confidence and push more and more capital out of the rigged casinos toward “safety”. It is human nature to pull in your horns and go back to basics when trust becomes and issue. Another way to say this is for “scared” money, all roads will lead toward gold and silver because they ARE “trust” on their own. The road to silver and gold are paved with many broken promises …which truth bombs are in the process of fully exposing!
