Making Sense of Today’s Economy

Recently, I got several emails from my friend Arlene in Maryland.  Arlene is usually pretty laid back, so I took her insistence seriously.   This is what she wrote me:

I watched these videos, and I learned a tremendous amount about what has been done to our economy and what we face.  I cannot imagine anyone who watches these who would not feel the same.

But it is really too good to withhold while I watch the rest, so rather than wait until I accomplish that, I am sending it out now.

For those of you who can take the time to watch, you will have an immediate grasp of the processes that are occurring around us and affecting our lives so profoundly.  You will understand what to expect, and why it is happening at the rate it is happening.  I think you will enjoy this multi part course. It is an organized presentation. Really well done I think.

Start here.


Since my own grasp of economic matters is nothing to write home about, and I’m sure I’m not alone, I’m offering this as something potentially useful. I'm trusting Arlene on this one. (Ordinarily, I don’t post something like this without checking it out first, but I’m still over my head with post-election coverage.)

The Crash Course

Ready to learn everything you need to know about the economy in the shortest amount of time?

The Crash Course is a condensed online version of Chris Martenson's "End of Money" seminar.
What is it?

The Crash Course seeks to provide you with a baseline understanding of the economy so that you can better appreciate the risks that we all face. The Intro below is separated from the rest of the sections because you'll only need to see it tells you about how the Crash Course came to be.

So, right about now, you're asking yourself, who the heck is Chris Martenson, and why should I pay any attention whatsoever to what he has to say?

Good questions, all.  Here’s what he says about himself.  Judge for yourself and proceed accordingly.
