Preach & Teach: A Monetary Moment from Prism Solutions
We all know from our schooling that energy can neither be created nor destroyed; it can only change form. Lifting a one kilogram silver bar into the air represents the storage of potential energy. Drop that bar and its potential energy is converted into kinetic energy. Drop it on your toe and some of the energy is absorbed by your nervous system and converted into pain, plus the energy required to hop and curse.
But did you know that wealth can be thought of as a form of stored energy too? Human labor expended as productivity can be measured in units of monetary value. The total value of all human labor can neither be created nor destroyed; it can only change hands.
Inherently fraudulent monetary practices such as fractional reserve banking create a net imbalance, causing wealth to flow from the hands of the generators of labor into the hands of the creators of money. But that’s only because the total amount of money in circulation vastly exceeds the amount necessary to facilitate all human transactions.
The excess monetization above that which is needed to collateralize the total global output of human labor manifests itself either as monetary inflation or outright fraud. Here’s a good article to read to give you some idea of what’s going on out there.
Fraud at this level takes one’s breath away. Of course, there is far more where this came from (and being the forensic researchers that we are, we’ve got the goods), but it is not our intent to analyze manufactured reality too deeply here. Our point in mentioning the above is merely to point out that the monetary imbalances that now exist severely imperil the ability of the average person to labor, produce, save and then monetize their stored labor as cash flow to sustain them in their post-labor years, a period known as retirement.
Under ordinary circumstances, the individual who at middle age has not yet saved for an adequate retirement, or who has not yet adopted a rock-solid strategy to ensure a comfortable (or at least minimally secure) retirement needs to get pro-active, and quickly.
But these are not ordinary circumstances. We would argue that present circumstances call for the adoption of a far more aggressive strategy of wealth building in order to get far enough ahead of history so as not to be swept into the dustbin along with it.
The Chinese curse translates: “May you live in interesting times.” If you’ve been waiting your whole life for things to get interesting, they certainly are now. May we suggest that you take a hard look at your investments, really think things through, and take some action to protect yourself?
As the saying goes, “When the going gets tough, the tough get going.” We say, “Get going before the going gets tough and you won’t have to tough it out later.”
Today’s Market MRI: How Much More Does The Bear Market Have To Go?
ZeroHedge Reports: “The secular bear market that the US has been caught in for a better part of the last decade will end… The only question is… how much more of a secular decline in PE multiples is to be expected before the bear market ends and a new bull market can begin. As the following chart from Crestmont Research shows there is quite a bit more to go… Just over 50% more. To the downside.”
Prism Responds: If you think the ‘Occupy’ movement was peeved, a 50% drop from here in stocks would sent the 99% of the public who occupied themselves watching the movement on TV into a catatonic state, followed by a progressive outpouring of righteous anger. Who knows, some might even go so far as to call in to C-SPAN. We can only suggest, Dear Reader, that you prepare for the worst while hoping for the best. Caution: hope springs eternal but retirement is looming.
