This show and the next is going to cover where we are in the current economic cycle. Being totally unpolitical and just focused on the warning signs like geese heading south, we are entering a period of stagflation (increasing inflation, increasing prices, high unemployment) - any of that sound familiar?
The prevailing talking heads that comprise government economists want to believe the artificial global recession of the pandemic is a substitute for the naturally occurring contraction. We disagree because there was no real cleansing of the market because of the trillions of dollars placed into the economy didn't fix what contractions fix - bad business descisions brought on the by the previous bubble.
EPISODE 17: LIFE IN THE BUBBLE

Supply Exceeds Demand with Excess Inventories and Inflated Price. This is the opposite of absolute bottom, the economic cycle has reached its peak and now the weight of the wave exceeds its ability to maintain momentum. All the signs are there, soaring prices, inflated money, easy credit, expanding inventories, and many new competitors – the wise realize the party is about to be over – the bubble is about to burst. As a business owner it is time to leave the table, cash in your chips, and get ready for heavy seas.

EPISODE 19: PEERING OVER THE CREST
Distress. The smart are out and already conserving cash. They are cleaning up their credit accounts with their investors, creditors, and suppliers. Everybody else is reacting to what was obvious but they have no plans for surviving the upcoming winter. While they are wondering what to do next, the smart are ensuring seed for the next season is saved because the contraction will end and those ready to act early will benefit the most in the next expansion.
EPISODE 20: GOING ROBUST
Carrying the feeling of Distress further, it is time stop all high risk activities that has you speeding money or extending credit. Think like a squirrel when the days starting getting shorter and the nights colder, gather up the nuts and find a safe place to secure the horde.
