Many economists say that if the bailouts didn’t happen, a few banks and their investors would have lost some of their money, and the world would have moved on.
But the bailouts happened because these people claimed the entire worldwide economy would “collapse”.
This is the biggest crime of our time… inspiring crippling fear of “total economic collapse” where Hollywood directors would have everyone’s head exploding simultaneously.
But what we really have isn’t a threat of “total financial collapse”—just a big crash. A lot of people would lose a lot of money, but it would be very much like 2008 was… and 2001 was.
Maybe more widespread and maybe deeper losses. But no exploding heads or cannibalism.
The fuel for the economy is DESIRE, or as economists call it… DEMAND.
You see, people want things: food, water, shelter, and a whole lot more too.
And we’re all willing to work and exchange things with each other in order to satisfy our own desires… that’s called SUPPLY.
Those are the two ingredients of an economy.
Supply and demand can’t “collapse totally” as long as humans are on earth.
Now just because a “total” collapse is impossible doesn’t mean it can’t hurt you.
2008 hurt you. The next one probably will too, if you don’t take the right actions at the right time.
The question is…
What are you going to do about it?
There are alternatives to losing money alongside everyone else.
In every crash, there are two smaller groups of people who are raking in huge profits.
1) Corrupt politicians and executives earning unethical profits, including congressmen and congresswomen doing insider trading, and
2) Smart investors profiting ethically
#2 used to be really hard before the internet.
Now that you have access to virtually unlimited information, you don’t need more quantity of information. You need higher quality of information.
That can be challenging too. I’ve gotten pretty good at it though.
I saved my butt and my the butts of the clients of my consulting firm in 2008. We profited from safe bets.
Since then the internet has really developed some amazing tools that have enabled me to help clients even further.
Webinars, coaching programs, video trainings.
I’ve even been able to consult hundreds of clients from dozens of countries, while taking my wife traveling around the world for a 13-month trip.
I have lots of gratitude to my mentors, some luck, and it’s also a downright accomplishment.
I’m a smart investor, and you should be too.
In fact, you probably already are. And people like us have to be on top of our game and always be in learning mode.
So, as we continue into the future, I hope I can help you to be “collapse-proof,” align yourself with the economic trends, and enjoy the peace of mind that comes from walking away from the “casino” of mainstream investing.
Trust me… most of my friends and clients are retired and nobody wants the heart risk of retiring on Wall Street “casino chips.”

And I look forward to helping you position yourself smartly before the fall. (There’s a strong correlation between the fall season and big crashes. I’m preparing some action items to suggest to you soon)
