Responsible plan B.
If you live, work, bank, invest, or own a business, and hold your assets all in just one country, you are putting all of your eggs in one basket.
You’re making a high-stakes bet that everything is going to be ok in that one country — forever, and in reality nothing last forever.
All it would take is for the economy to tank, a big natural disaster to hit, a terrorist attack or the political system to go into turmoil and you could lose everything—your money, your assets, and possibly even your freedom.
Right now, most major governments are insolvent, central banks are borderline insolvent, pension funds are nearly insolvent.
Financial markets are in massive bubbles. Banking systems are highly illiquid and in some cases charging their customers negative interest rates.
And yet, most people allow themselves to be convinced that everything is just fine.
My neighbor’s not worried, why should I be?
"It’s a sign of our times that it takes so much courage to acknowledge reality and recognize the need for having a plan B."
Remember—even in the best of times, and perhaps especially in the best of times, rational people have a plan B.
How to structure your Plan B:
The defensive strategies of your Plan B, ensure that you can safeguard everything you’ve worked for over your entire life.
Or even more, protect everything that you believe you’ll achieve in the future, making sure that it’s safe from desperate, bankrupt and corrupt governments.
This can apply to your personal savings, your retirement account, and your investment portfolio, which likely has substantial exposure to stock market bubbles and bankrupt government bonds.
Having a Plan B means ensuring that if things go south in your home country, you have a safe place to go.
This includes options such as establishing residency overseas, a second passport, and increasing your personal resilience.
Investing in a resilient-sustainable community and farming in Chile is very safe and could bring excellent returns for life, and It never hurts to be prepared and be a year early rather than a day late in doing so.
Whether it's a false flag or just the long-expected collapse of the economy, something big is likely coming… and soon.
And that’s the whole point of a Plan B: taking rational steps that make sense regardless of what happens or doesn’t happen next.
-The Stock Market distraction - misinformation situation;
In the Land of the Free, the US stock market is hitting record highs lately. (2017)
Simultaneously, consumer credit (DEBT) in the US is also at an all-time high of $3.8 trillion.
Even more specifically, margin debt, which is the amount of money that investors borrow to buy stocks, is at an all-time high.
Think about that: investors are borrowing record amounts of money to buy stocks at all-time highs.
This sounds like a fantastic trend!
If you look deeper, the numbers become even more bizarre; let’s go back in time a few years and I’ll show you.
In 2012, Coca Cola reported $48 billion in revenue for the year, and $9 billion in profit. That was as pretty good year for Coca Cola shareholders.
For 2016, however, Coca Cola reported revenue of $41.8 billion, and $6.5 billion in profit.
So when you compare 2016 to 2012, revenue declined 13%, and profit declined 28%.
Given those dismal figures you’d think that Coke’s stock price would be a LOT lower today than it was back then.
After Coca Cola reported its 2012 earnings on February 12, 2013, its stock price was around $37.50.
When Coca Cola reported its 2016 earnings earlier this year, its stock price was $41.25. And today it’s even higher at $43.50.
Even more curious is that Coke’s 2012 report shows long-term debt of $14.7 billion. By 2016, long-term debt had more than doubled to $29.6 billion.
So Coca Cola is basically telling the world that its business is declining and they’re going deeper into debt. Yet investors continue to push the stock higher.
Makes perfect sense, right?
Now let’s look at ExxonMobil, whose 2010 annual report showed $383 billion in revenue, $30 billion in profit, and $12 billion in debt.
The company’s most recent annual report from 2016 posted $226 billion in revenue (42% decline), $7.7 billion in profit (74% decline), and $28 billion in debt (133% increase)!
Once again a rational person would think that the price of ExxonMobil’s stock (XOM) would be dramatically lower.
Wrong again. XOM is up from $78 to $83 over that period.
Then there’s Netflix, which has been one of the top-performing stocks over the last several years.
Bear in mind that Netflix actually LOSES money; it’s operating business lost nearly $1.5 billion in 2016, and the company continues to pile on more and more debt.
Earlier this month Netflix closed another $1.4 billion in debt financing, which is the third time in two years that the company has raised more than a billion in debt.
Netflix’s total long-term debt and content liabilities (the amount of money they’re legally required to pay to content owners) is approaching $20 billion, and rising.
Lose money, go into debt. Not exactly a recipe for success.
Yet curiously the stock price is at an all-time high.
Then there’s Apple, a company so hallowed and consecrated that it’s almost sacrilegious to question the business.
But if you compare Apple to its own performance just two years ago, both revenue and profit are lower.
A few weeks ago Apple reported $39.6 billion in operating cash flow for the first three months of this year.
That’s a full 25% LOWER than the $52.8 billion the company reported for the same quarter in 2015.
Over the same period, Apple’s DEBT more than DOUBLED from $40 billion to $84.5 billion.
Again, it seems obvious that Apple stock should be LOWER in 2017 than it was in 2015.
But it’s not.
Apple stock has climbed 19% in the last two years from $130 to $155, and its price is also now at an all-time high.
Something in these markets is obviously broken.
Most companies are posting falling revenues, falling profits, and falling operating cash flow.
Yet simultaneously the stock prices are soaring... right along with both business and consumer debt.
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to spot the connection.
I’m not suggesting that stocks are going to crash tomorrow or that this is the top of the market. No one has a crystal ball.
But it seems pretty obvious that investors who buy these assets are taking on huge risks relative to prospective returns. Maybe stocks keep rising a little bit more. But the bubble could just as easily burst and cause 40% - 50% decline and its only a matter of time.
The risk vs. reward doesn’t stack up. And it certainly seems worth considering safer and solid assets that still provide strong returns. The partnership opportunity at Cerro del Angel offers very safe and solid returns spread on three projects with minimal risks and great financial benefits. it is a hard tangible asset titled on your name, will last forever and would bring peace of mind knowing that you have a safe place to go with clean air and abundant water, organic fruits and vegetables, amazing valley views, Ocean Views and great mediterranean weather.
We make personal and all financial decisions based on fake news and manipulation on a daily basis.
Financial groups control Government and the media, and both are extraordinary practitioners of manipulation, directing people’s attention away from what they don’t want you to see and channeling your attention on precisely what they want you to focus on.
The mainstream (financial) controlled media in particular leads us along day after day, focusing and refocusing our attention in ways that deliberately manipulate public opinion.
The most recent episode has been the firing of former FBI Director James Comey.
The Internet erupted with nearly infinite intellectual diarrhea after the news broke; and countless hours have been wasted reading, writing, and talking about this guy.
Seriously-- who cares?
Up until just a few days ago, James Comey didn’t matter to anyone on the planet outside of Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, and handful of people in government.
It’s not like James Comey plays a prominent role in your life or mine. To the average guy, he’s less important than the cable guy.
And yet the media slammed people with practically wall-to-wall coverage of this story, shoving Comey Comey Comey down everyone’s throats.
The depth of that coverage draws our focus away from real issues (particularly long-term challenges) that are far more important, and redirects the scarce resource of attention to some trivial soap opera that’s nothing more than a clever distraction.
It’s manipulation, plain and simple.
They’re pushing you to a conclusion, opinion, or decision that they want, not one that you’ve reached on your own through objective data and truth.
And it happens across media, politics... even finance and investing.
I ask everyone reading my post to do their own research and come up with their own conclusion, start a plan B asap and spread you risk, have physical cash, buy some metals, Invest in Farmland, Start a sustainable community and get a second passport.
- Have physical cash available for emergencies, banks can shut down, or they can put limits on how much you can withdraw, a judge can freeze you're account because of a frivolous lawsuit, or impose exit taxes when you try to wire money overseas (coming soon).
- Gold and Silver mainly, it holds the value.
- Farmland (only with water rights) and a sustainable community overseas is a good investment, is a hard asset that increases in value every year, generate good income and bring peace of mind. A hard asset is something that will maintain its usefulness through good times and bad, especially when normal times turn into chaos. If you have not done so already, now is a good time to determine what hard assets you have that you can depend on when the system fails. Everything works until it doesn’t. This is especially true for financial schemes and fiat currencies like the Dollar, Don’t be the last one holding paper when chaos strikes. You may live to regret it.
- Second passport. (check Chilean residence on menu) I recommend Chile because I search and travel all over South and Central America, and Chile is the only Country that is stable, safe and you don't have to worry about property rights or have to deal with squatters trying to steal your land or breaking into you're house, also don't have to worry about tropical diseases or venomous snakes.
For any question in regards to partnership, buying a farm in Chile or anything related to Chile you can reach me at 281/642-1866 or email me at Angel@Pencahue.com. I'm more than happy to guide you and help you in any way possible on you're plan B. I made the first step already and buy the perfect farm after years of research, just need a partner to share the benefits and the costs of development, I'm ready and I can move to Chile in short notice, and start a sustainable plan B for you're family and my family.
