Description

The yield curve is continuing to flatten with 2 year treasury bills at the highest they’ve been since 2008! The yield curve inverting is a very strong predictor of a recession. So how much longer will this tightening cycle by the FED go on until this bubble pops and the inevitable happens? When this bubble pops, 2008 will seem like a nonevent. Please protect yourself and be prepared.

I farm and work on a feedlot just outside of Billings, MT. My dad and I will feed up to 8,000 head of cattle every year at the feedlot. As of September 20th I launched a podcast on iTunes where I talk about the current issues of the day. My mantra is defending the free market and making the moral case for capitalism! My show is weekly and is available on iTunes, Stitcher and your web browser.

  • I’ve written a new children’s book that uses a fun story and engaging illustrations to convey the ideas in Bastiat’s The Law to kids age 6-10. It’s called The Tuttle Twins Learn About The Law. Here’s the website. If this book sells well, we’ll be turning it into an entire series. Each book will focus on a different aspect of liberty: the non-aggression principle, division of labor, intended/unintended consequences, etc. etc. We’ve got plenty of available material to persuade adults to support liberty, but there’s a big void in the marketplace for educational material for kids. We’re going to be filling that void.

  • Investment Biker is a wonderful mix of motorcycle adventure, economic investment in emerging markets and world culture written by Jim Rogers after he and his companion traveled the globe for almost two years and covered 105,000 km on BMW motorcycles. Now twenty years have passed and you can gauge how well Roger’s observations on the breakup of the USSR were and what came of the regions he traveled through. As he enters and exits numerous smaller countries in Africa and South America you see how he learns about people’s trust, or lack of, in their state operations. Upon that you begin to see how his investment works and what kinds of regulations stifle economic development. All the while stamping 50 countries in their passports. If you happen to be in Birmingham you can see Jim and Tabitha’s well traveled bikes at the Barbers Motorsports Museum.

  • Is the only good war story an anti-war story? Many of my favorite books about war are books that can be interpreted as anti-war books. Bring your favorite war stories to our discussion in the Bookworm Hangout: http://liberty.me/bookworm-hangout/ at 8 PM ET. WW 1 soldiers on the march. Books I’m likely to bring up: The Iliad; The Things They Carried; A Lake in the Woods; Farewell to Arms; and All quiet on the Western Front. Feel free to add to this title list with your own selections.

  • I’m assuming there must be some form of human value behind the dollar for it to be legitimate, and I’ve always thought inflation to be a consequence of arbitrarily increasing the money supply. But how can the Fed go about distributing that money?   Unless… Do they just get on tall buildings and make it rain in the streets?   Seriously though, what are the channels for getting newly printed money into rotation?
