Eric Peters: "In A World Awash In Stimulus, How Should You Invest In The Absence Of A Crisis"

"No one knows whether the accumulation of all this extraordinary stimulus is solving our problems, or simply staving off a crisis that will reappear soon after we stop. And with so much of this new money leaking to America and emerging markets, it’s not just a question for Europe and Japan.

"If You Can't Touch It, You Don't Own It"

The pending Brexit has, not surprisingly, caused a shakeup in the investment world, particularly in the UK. Of particular note is that, recently, asset management firms in Britain began refusing their clients the right to cash out of their mutual funds. Of the £35 billion invested in such funds, just under £20 billion has been affected. The lesson to take away here is that, if you can’t touch it, you don’t own it. Banks and fund management firms can freeze your wealth, so that you can’t access it. Governments and banks can confiscate your wealth. If you don’t have the power to put your hands on your wealth on demand, you don’t own it.

It's Not The Brexit Stupid!

Brexit is just a symptom of the disease eating away at the fabric of our global economy. Lehman’s collapse was not the cause of the 2008 worldwide financial crisis. It was just the excuse for something that was going to happen no matter what. Bad debt, bad bankers, bad regulators, bad politicians, media cheer leading, and a willfully ignorant populace were a toxic combination – and it’s worse today.
