Week in Review: True Economic Collapse

Posted on Jun 20 2015 - 11:45am by Sharpe Trade

These podcasts try to focus in on ‘reviews’.  Be it what has occurred in the last week, what we’ve been thinking about in the last week, or possibly even our own content in the last week.

Last week, our podcast discussed “Forever Prepping”.  A few comments were left on the YouTube video … and I thought this week, I would have a ‘follow up’ podcast based on those comments.

Because what bothers me when it comes to “prepping” for “Economic Collapse”, is not the concept of “preparing” for problems. It’s that folks who supposedly ‘preparing’ for an Economic Collapse are not actually having conversations regarding a true economic collapse in our future.



Is there the possibility of a true economic collapse in our future?

Yes.  Absolutely.

What are we talking about?

We discuss a book in this podcast, and have also included the link …

The Black Swan: Second Edition: The Impact of the Highly Improbable: With a new section: “On Robustness and Fragility” (Incerto)

There is also …

Tail Risk Killers: How Math, Indeterminacy, and Hubris Distort Markets

We also have two charts for your consideration discussed in the podcast …




Grab your cup of coffee this weekend, as we discuss all of the above in the following podcast …

If you prefer to listen to this podcast on YouTube, you can do so here.  Our podcasts are also on Podbean, and at the same time, we have an itunes feed and you can find our podcasts on itunes if you prefer to subscribe there …

    When you spoke about the subject of “showing half of the data” aka “use true facts to support false conclusions”, this recent study came to my mind: http://io9.com/i-fooled-millions-into-thinking-chocolate-helps-weight-1707251800
    In this case they wanted “to demonstrate just how easy it is to turn bad science into the big headlines [behind diet fads].”
    So it is a general good advise to walk through life with open eyes…
    btw, i like your granny:-)
