This is Martin Weiss, and I think it’s time we had a serious heart-to-heart talk.
More so than ever before, investors like you and me face a difficult dilemma. If we want to keep our money absolutely safe, with almost zero risk, we earn almost nothing. But if we want to earn a decent return, we have to take risk, sometimes TOO MUCH risk. This week, I want to help you solve this dilemma once and for all.
Today, I’ll give you my Big Picture vision of what’s happening and what some of the consequences could be.
On Wednesday, I’ll tell you what my team and I are doing about it to help you through this year — and years to come.
Then, on Friday, I will share with you what Elisabeth and I are doing personally with our own money. Plus, I’ll give you five steps you can take right now to get both better safety and a higher return.
In all three of these short sessions you and I spend together, there will be no promotion, no product to buy. I simply feel, very strongly, that given everything that’s happened — and is about to happen — the time to set the right course is now. But first I have a confession to make.
As you may know, my father and I were very close. Before he passed away years ago, he said something very meaningful to me. He said “Martin, in my entire career of forecasting the economy, I made one mistake that I will always regret. My biggest mistake,” he said, “was to underestimate the stupidity of government.”
I listened intently, but it was a mistake I was destined to repeat.
Sure, after the housing market and the economy fell apart in 2008, I knew the folks at the Federal Reserve were going to print money. But I had no idea how far they would go!
Plus, we face the possibility of higher income taxes and some kind of wealth tax. Worst of all, we face a rising tide of global conflict.
If you’ve been following our writings, you know that we’ve been talking about this for some time. So you’re probably wondering: What has changed? Why am I here right now talking about this today?
The answer is that, now, for the first time, this Fed funny money — and wealth effect from the stock emerging.
What does this mean for investors?
First, it means that investors all over the world are finding ways to get off the grid — and into things that are more difficult for governments to keep track of, like art, rare coins and other collectibles.
Second, despite temporary setbacks which are still possible, we are going to see a lot more of the asset inflation we’ve already been seeing in key sectors. For example, silver and gold shares are rising sharply again.
We are also seeing a rise in certain technology sectors.
All of this is potentially very positive for smart investors because it brings a whole series of opportunities in a wide variety of select assets. But it also brings two big dangers; dangers that have me worried about your ability to get through this …
The first danger is broad price inflation in nearly everything you buy.
And the second danger is the sequel to every major boom throughout history — a major bust. But right now, you have the opportunity — and the duty to yourself and your family — to use this time to amass as much wealth as you can.
At a time like this, my personal mission — and the mission of my entire company — is to do everything we can to help you profit during this exciting period.
In a moment, I will invite you to select any one of a dozen gifts from my team — special reports that I have handpicked to help you.
But this is only my first step …
Be sure to join me for Part II — and Part III — of this chat. Part II will be on Wednesday, same place, same time. And part III will be on Friday.
This is Martin Weiss, wishing you good luck … and God bless!
