The intensifying debt and government crises around the world are continuously unsettling the international capital markets which are signaling a move away from debt-based paper assets towards real value. This development did not only come into existence during the 2008 financial, banking and economic crisis that was triggered by the US subprime crisis, but started long before that.

 

The main part of Mr. Birners presentation contains a long-term analysis of capital markets and their market cycles as well as a look into the future. He will also investigate the pros and cons of all asset classes as investors should be aware that there have not been any risk-free investments for a fairly long time!

Chris Martenson, PhD (Duke), MBA (Cornell) is an economic researcher and futurist specializing in energy and resource depletion, and co-founder of PeakProsperity.com (along with Adam Taggart). As one of the early econobloggers who forecasted the housing market collapse and stock market correction, Chris rose to prominence with the launch of his seminal video seminar: The Crash Course (also published in book form, Wiley, March 2011). It's a popular and well-regarded distillation of the interconnected forces in the Economy, Energy and the Environment (the "Three Es" as Chris calls them) that are shaping the future, one that will be defined by increasing challenges to growth as we have known it. Of course, such warnings need solutions, which is why he and Taggart published the manual Prosper! How to Prepare for the Future and Create a World Worth Inheriting (November 2015). In addition to the analysis and commentary he writes for millions of readers at his site PeakProsperity.com, Chris' insights are in high demand by the media as well as academic, civic and private organizations around the world, including institutions such as the UN, the UK House of Commons and US State Legislatures.
