Am I Imagining Things...

As I noted this week, two of my main theses on the market are taking a while to play out. And, as usual, there is no guarantee I will be right - in fact, I am often wrong.

But there has been news trickling out that suggests my long-held belief that the petrodollar is in its twilight may wind up being correct. For example, last week it was reported that the UAE has stopped taking U.S. dollars for transactions in oil.

I had an exclusive interview with Andy Schectman this week, who has been predicting such a seismic move for the dollar for years. In it, he lays out what he thinks is next for the U.S. dollar and what it could mean for the economy going forward: Petrodollar Endgame Moves Even Closer

🔥 For this weekend only, I am lowering the price of a lifetime subscription to the blog from $650 to just $280. This means, you pay up front for the price of about two years — and you are comped for a subscription for life — until I either die or stop writing, whichever comes first. This is a sale I’ve never run before and may never run again. Select “Lifetime Sub” on this page. 

This week I also dropped a story that looks back at what we now know about the Covid jab — asking the question that if we knew then what we knew now, would we have taken the jab to begin with? Had You Known, Would You Have Taken the Jab?

I also dropped an exclusive interview with Euro Pacific Asset Management's Chief Global Strategist, and my favorite economist, Peter Schiff, where we discussed:

  1. Why gold miners are lagging the price of gold

  2. Whether or not the stock market is going to move higher or lower

  3. Why Peter thinks CPI could wind up moving higher yet again

  4. Is there a case for deflation as well as inflation?

  5. Does the forthcoming Bitcoin spot ETFs validate the crypto enough for him to get behind it yet?
