Investing ahead of the Great Reset
There is a (in)famous quote by Winston Churchill, and later paraphrased by ex-Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel; “Never let a good crisis go to waste”. Well, if there was ever a more perfect opportunity for politicians and un-elected world elites to exploit a crisis, a global ”pandemic” certainly was convenient.
At least in time’s past, the people pulling the strings had the courtesy to shield their true intentions from the public eye. This time around, the real agenda has been published for all to read.
“You’ll own nothing, and you’ll be happy”
This is a real statement that was published on the World Economic Forum's website. According to the source, this is what we plebeians will come to know and love in the year 2030.
Interestingly, the source of this quote, an article on the World Economic Forum website and a short video tweet, both no longer exist. Hmm. Maybe we weren't supposed to know?
Luckily, there were folks smart enough to pull material before it mysteriously vanished.
Ultimately, a campaign to radically transform the world's economic and political structures towards some form of a single globalist society is being orchestrated by central planners who will control all social, economic, and political activities.
The scale of this Marxist campaign against freedom and humanity has yet to be seen by the history books. A convenient crisis was all that was needed to begin the implementation of this utopian dream.
For investors, this has created a difficult environment where we must consider potential new investment criteria like jurisdictional risk and how “woke” a corporation has become as part of due diligence.
Most importantly, we must find entities to trust and ways to protect our purchasing power in the coming years of uncertainty.
Protecting Purchasing Power in Uncertain Times
In times of crisis and uncertainty, we generally have seen an increase in prices. This was true for both World Wars as well as this past year during the Cerveza sickness.
If the Great Reset planners get their way, we will certainly experience more uncertainty, including civil unrest and further disruption to world supply chains.
One way to protect purchasing power is by purchasing hard assets. The idea is to invest in real, tangible assets that have underlying value apart from the price they are trading for in the market. This may include commodities, real estate, or precious metals that will increase in price during uncertainty.
Another way to protect your purchasing power is to be invested in stocks that are positively correlated to the rising prices of underlying hard assets. Rather than owning the physical assets, you can own companies that benefit from the rise in these asset prices. This might include precious metal mining companies, oil and gas producers, or basic material producers.
These assets and companies will do a better job at protecting your purchasing power in times of uncertainty versus speculative-growth investments or cash.
Having to worry about jurisdictional risk has never been an issue for most western investors. But looking into the future, this is due to change. As productivity declines with western democracies falling victim to the Great Reset’s shift to “green” energy, investors will have to look elsewhere for returns.
In the past, choosing which sector of the economy to invest your capital in was usually enough. Now, choosing which country or jurisdiction to invest in will be as important as ever.
Take Russia and Canada as an example. Both economies have a large emphasis on energy and agriculture. However, Canada has expressed its intent on moving toward a greener future, namely reducing its production and consumption of fossil fuels. Russia on the other hand has made no such efforts and is unlikely to in the future.
The mainstream media effectively laughs at the notion of Russing getting “left behind” in the race for green energy. We know who is really laughing.
Investments in “woke” jurisdictions like Canada and other western economies may prove to backfire as these businesses move towards green energy production and away from the energy-dense fossil fuels that modern society was built on.
As the western companies move away from fossil fuels, companies in Russia and other “eastern” economies who are not moving towards “green” energy will gladly pick up the slack.
It may take more time and effort to research investments overseas or in new jurisdictions, but as we begin to see the negative impacts of the Great Reset on western productivity, capital will have to flow where it is best protected.
Investing in Trust
Trust is deteriorating in today’s world. Our media, healthcare, and government institutions are all increasingly struggling to keep hold of the public’s trust. Rightfully so.
This became apparent during the outbreak of Covid-19 as these institutions repeatedly contradicted statements and lied to the public about the health crisis. If people cannot trust these institutions for information about public health of all things, how are we to trust information that might impact our investments?
For many investors, this may be the first time these sources of trust are outside the realm of “western democracies” that seem fixated on economic suicide. This is as much a psychological hurdle to jump as it is a matter of trust because this has not been the case for most of the living population’s lifetime.
Fortunately, these large geopolitical shifts take time, and now that the world is more connected than ever, we will have the tools and knowledge to adjust if and when the time comes.
