Survive and Thrive in the Coming Debt Crisis
For decades, the global economy (including the U.S.) has thrived on using other people’s money, with resultant debts repaid with growing earnings power. Zero Interest Rate policies have turned consumers, businesses, and governments into debt-addicts. Sooner than later, these massive debt burdens must be paid down, diverting funds from both basic and growth requirements. At the same time, demographics and politicians are handicapping the ability to produce the necessary income, turning the massive U.S. private and public debt of 350% of GDP from the flywheel of economic growth into a ruinous millstone.
As Yogi Berra said, “The future ain’t what it used to be”. Are you prepared for the “new normal”?
In the Saturday morning seminar on February 13, Herb Geissler will explain the fundamental credit and economic forces and how they shape the U.S. and global economies. After reviewing the “Devastating D’s” (Debt, Deleveraging, and Deflation; Debilitating Demographics; and Dysfunctional Democracies), Herb will demonstrate several methods to help you secure the financial comforts that investors want and need in this challenging environment.
These ongoing problems also create major opportunities for investors who understand the nature of these global forces. Most importantly, you as an investor must protect your wealth by learning exactly when to get out of harm’s way and when to safely get back in. Herb will show how “Buy-and-Hold” can easily be replaced by disciplined “Buy-and-Fold” of carefully selected securities. Also, he will show his proven method to identify the most favorable asset-class, industry sector, growth/value style, and emerging market to be in each month (and when best to safely sit in cash).
To provide you with easy-to-use tools, attendees will receive free*, Herb’s new and improved Five Diverse Strategies spreadsheets. This $75 CD helps investors “keep the wind to their backs” and to surface specific ETFs that are most likely to do best each month.
In addition, for investors favoring individual stocks over ETFs, Herb will discuss a disciplined method for isolating the strongest and best stocks and how to profitably buy and sell them with constrained risks.
