    When I saw a couple of articles on Drudge where Alan Greenspan was saying the same thing that I heard Harry say on CTM about a year ago, I was hoping you’d bring him (Harry) back on for an update. Glad to see we’re on the same wavelength, John B.

    Keep up the good work!

    Quite correct overall view Mr Dent, I can see history repeating. To understand what is happening economically in the USA,one only has to look at the Political policies that where applied to Australia during the 80s. Commonly known as the recession we had to have. Having lived through that tumultuous time the one negative thing that occurred is real wages for blue collar workers have remained at poverty level rates under collective bargain negotiations. For anyone who was able to negotiate for their own wages themselves then opportunity for a better deal was achievable under work choices policies but left wing unions soon put a halt to this. During the recession Australia lost most of it’s manufacturing processes to cheaper labour in Asia. But with that said the underlying lesson learnt is this . Right wing progresses an economy to a point of excess. The left halts this, resets and regresses an economy into deficits the other way. All this is done under the guise of Capitalism vrs Socialism and maintaining a certain level of life style applied to each individual in a community . It’s how the system works ups and downs or in cycles.

    I don’t understand what makes Bitcoin valuable when it is purchased via fiat dollars. Once more if the dollar takes a dump then why wouldn’t bitcoin also drop. We need a gold standard bitcoin like Dr.J talked about but when I researched what his show recommends Things seem to be fishy. If I understand it correctly if someone refers someone else to buy that gold cripto they get a 25% referral fee, if that is correct than something is wrong with this. I like the concept but please dig deep into who started it.

    Stockpiling food starts with a can of beans and a bag of rice. $20 will buy a 20 lb bag of rice and 10 cans of beans then keep going. As you progress, add other canned vegetables, sardines, tuna, salmon, whatever you like to eat and don’t forget the salt and seasonings. Same thing with precious metals, start with one coin and keep going. On a budget, that metal will be silver. Check out your local coin/pawn shop and look for silver eagles or maple leafs, which will be around $20 an ounce. If you are really tight on money, buy a couple of pre-1964 quarters or dimes. Self defense – If all you can afford is a single shot shotgun, then that is the gun for you. You should be able to find one for $100 or less. Buy two 25 round boxes of #6 shot and a 5 round box of OO buckshot. Use one box of #6 shot to familiarize with your gun and practice speed loading. Water – containers are everywhere. We don’t drink sodas, but it easy to get friends and family to save there soda and juice bottles for you. Rinse the bottles well and fill with water. If your water comes from a municipal supply, it would be ideal to run it through a filter like a Berkley, but, on a budget, 10 gallons of tap water beats no water because you did not have a filter. Start small on everything, refine, and progress.

      well said.

    I would like to add this– I realize that for families in apartments or on small lots or in subdivisions that plots of land are not available. But most people know somebody or have family where there are places of refuge. People with land may be willing to share with others in exchange for labor, needed equipment etc. It’s true that the South has tended to hold on to old skills and even old equipment when there may be no gasoline for farm machinery, but this movement to produce food and learn sensible skills is everywhere in all the states and other countries. Rooftop gardens and community gardens.You think subdivision codes will apply if big time SHTF ? Bunkers are another matter but I was told by engineers that the ones who built the elite bunker probably know how to gain entry. Maybe ! WE THE PEOPLE CAN SURVIVE !

    All of this has been discussed many times before but people need to be reminded. Never give up !

    If we can hold on and not get destroyed by the falling wreckage of the economic avalanche, there’ll be a real honest to goodness fire sale on real estate in about 2020.

    Harry Dent is so left brain, he makes my head hurt. Bravo for his passion on what he believes, but methinks intuition, spirituality and the Lord also play a part in all of this. Harry relies 100% on statistics, charts, and trends and does not allow for creativity, innovation, imagination, synchronicity and serendipity. Calm down, Harry, take a breath, and have some faith….

    Caravaners, it’s more important to have the land, the seeds, some skills, something to barter with than precious metals. Sure, it’s nice to have gold or silver if you can buy it, but you can’t eat it. The producers of food will end up with the precious metal in the end when the desperate owners of precious metals want to eat. If all you have is a big back yard you can grow something to eat and maybe even have some chickens for eggs, etc. I have read that you can create your own seed bank. Don’t under estimate the power of the everyday people sticking together, helping each other in the bad times they are predicting. You can store a great deal of food for very little cost. Just do a little research and pricing at the grocery stores. You’ll be surprised !

    The only metal I have is a quart jar of old silver. Old Uncle Roy had it hidden in his cellar and I found it. LOL !!!.

    A Good survival show would be appreciated at this time, although J B has had them in the past.

    Thanks CTM !! Bless you all.

    John, my wife and I really enjoy your show and try not to miss an episode. Would you please do a show offering insight and advice for people that cannot afford to invest and/or buy precious metals? We are not living paycheck to paycheck, but close too close for comfort. We can’t afford to build a bunker, have a portfolio, and stockpile food. Are people like us supposed to curl up and die?…I know they would like us (and those like us) to, but we would would prefer to ripen on the vine instead of being a failed crop!

      Hello Calvin, We have something lined up soon. Regards JBW

    Johnny B,…

    You might want to check out this report about Wikileaks origin…

    There are 4 parts (each are 30~ minutes)…

    Title: “Wikileaks – Made by the N.S.A.”

    99% of people are hovering around a 130 IQ?????? I think you misspoke John B., don’t take my remark as a criticism against you, it was a simple mistake.
    If that were only true. IQ is dropping around the world due to the Ministry of Smoke & Mirrors around the world, and the education system here in the US.
    The European Union is killing itself with their LOW IQ, not enough sense to recognize the “refugees” they are allowing in come from areas where IQ’s are extremely low.
    Africa’s average IQ is 73.
    Middle East average around 80.
    Great way to put together a work force of idiots, have the imbeciles determine who they should recruit.
    As you have said many times, these global elites are not very smart, in fact they are morons.

      You are correct, I misspoke – What I meant was that when I read about Megan Kelly being 130, the commentary around that was that her score is much higher than 99% of the entire population. You are correct in your comment. JBW

    Great show once again..

    Mr. Dent didn’t get the memo that we are a Constitutional Republic, not a Democracy, as he kept referring to. Also, he is looking solely at historical cycles and bubbles and bursts. He surely recognizes that our “economy” has been manipulated by the Fed, the Banksters, and the corporate oligarchy to further their own interests and those of the elites, the so-called one percenters. Yes, it is likely there will be a crash based on the downturn of the stock market, and even the average person can prepare for that, to the extent their means allow. He said he didn’t care who won the election. Well, millions of Americans DO care. There were many reasons to vote for Trump, not the least of which that we want an end to the corruption in DC, and we want to see criminal prosecution of the Clintons and Obama. And Trump is right to emphasize a return to jobs being created here in America, and voiding policies which have moved millions of jobs overseas. Keep the shows coming John B. Thanks for a variety of guests.

    Holy frijole…TX real estate you can’t buy, valued in SDR.

    JOHN B.

    I think you did not mean to say that ” 90% of the people are hovering an IQ of 130.” An IQ of 140 or higher is considered Genus.

    Mr. Dent – Here’s a couple cents from the peanut gallery …

    1. PR is too hot, 3rd world, and storm zoned.

    2. Australia is too hot, too vulnerable to China and they’ve been disarmed and vaccine mandated !

    3. Poor everyday folks, ( like me, ) WANT volatility in crypto currencies. We NEED to be able to trade 24 / 365 on the ups and downs of these 800 + coins. Sure, it’d be nice to have a stable coin or 3 used JUST to buy and sell … but to have an economic recovery we little shmucks need our volatile cryptos.

    4. Notice where MOST red states are 🙂 The south needs to rise again, and to do so we must be informed. ONE OF the reasons the blue states are “sanctuary cities / counties / states,” is because the ( evil phony, ) powers that be know it’s likely a new domestic currency will come out and be devalued 30 % right away and another 60 % the 1st year out, thus causing us to have to work for about $2. an hour. Americans won’t stand for it and will quit. The 3rd world darkies they claim to care about but really can’t stand, are used to shoe licking for even less than that and will keep their cities counties states running for the 4 to 6 months it’ll take till Americans get used to their new slavery. What justice it’ll be to see the safe space snow flakes flipping tacos with Jose for $2. an hour and living 5 to a room and 15 to a house !

    The red states need to prepare right quick. We need to form a country within a country NOW. Also, we need to position ourselves NOW in depression proof industries, self sufficiency, stored wealth food water ammo and supplies. Invite successful small business here because they won’t survive in the blue slave states once this begins.

    In the words of an old game show host … “come on down” …
