“America Works… Never Bet Against America”

And like that, it happened. Despite the polls, despite what anyone believed was possible, including many of his own supporters, billionaire developer Donald J. Trump was sworn in as the 45th President of the United States.

Whether you agree with him not, he’s now leader of the world’s largest economy and commander of history’s most powerful military force.

This is something that could only happen in the U.S.

President Trump and now-former President Barack Obama couldn’t be more different in their backgrounds, visions and leadership styles—more so than any other two men whose administrations happen to adjoin the other’s.

And yet the transition went remarkably smoothly and orderly.

I don’t believe there’s ever been such a meaningful and potentially consequential transfer of power in U.S. history, with the incoming president all but promising to undo every last policy of his predecessor, line by line. That Obama peacefully and cordially handed over the executive office to a man who led the charge in questioning his legitimacy for a number of years is a testament to the strength and durability of our democratic process.

It’s a process that’s key to America’s exceptionalism.

Although I don’t always agree with Trump, it saddens me to see so much negativity about him in the media and protests in the streets. Now that he’s president, the time has come to unite behind him and root for his success. If he succeeds, America succeeds. If he fails—as many seem to hope for—America fails.

Take Warren Buffett. He backed Hillary Clinton throughout the primaries and general election. And yet on the eve of Trump’s inauguration, he said he supported the new president and his cabinet “overwhelmingly,” adding that he’s confident America “will work fine under Donald Trump.”

This 33 minute interview is encompasses the works, and especially on Rogers belief that the agricultural markets have been depressed for many years.

"I'm still extremely optimistic about agriculture, more so than many sectors of the world economy. Buy anywhere it's raining! Anywhere that has good weather, good soil, good laws, and there are many of those around – the African continent, South America, the middle part of Asia. There are many places where there are astonishing opportunities. I'm not sure I would rush out and buy Iowa right now because it's extremely expensive. But there are lots of places where the opportunities are good" - from the Daily Bell


Jim Rogers started trading the stock market with $600 in 1968.In 1973 he formed the Quantum Fund with the legendary investor George Soros before retiring, a multi millionaire at the age of 37. Rogers and Soros helped steer the fund to a miraculous 4,200% return over the 10 year span of the fund while the S&P 500 returned just 47%.

10 Potential Black Swans And Opportunities For The U.S. Economy In 2017

* We've reached that wonderful time of year when financial pundits pull out their forecaster hats and take a crack at the future.

* This time the exercise is particularly interesting because we're at several turning points.

* Any one of them could remake the entire year overnight.

We've reached that wonderful time of year when financial pundits pull out their forecaster hats and take a crack at the future. This time the exercise is particularly interesting because we're at several turning points. Any one of them could remake the entire year overnight.

I should probably say up front that I am actually somewhat optimistic about 2017 - optimistic, meaning I think we will muddle through - but that's a lot better outcome than I was expecting five months ago. However, mid-course corrections may be warranted.

Instead of trying to answer questions about the future, I'll try to list those we should be asking as 2017 opens.

We can't afford for any of the major components of the global economy to break down; so, it's smart to ask, "Where are the weak points?". That's what we'll do today. We'll poke at the economic mechanism as it grinds along.

"In my whole life, I have known no wise people (over a broad subject matter area) who didn’t read all the time — none," Charlie Munger, the vice chairman at Berkshire Hathaway, once said.

With that in mind, we've highlighted 27 classic works that every Wall Streeter should read.

Many of these books show up time and again in lists of books recommended by the pros themselves.

Topics covered include everything from the most important principles of investing to inside stories of the worst financial crises in modern history.

The Implosion Of The Global Markets Has Started And Can’t Be Stopped

Global-Asset-Universe-2015NEWThe world doesn’t realize it yet, but the implosion of the global markets has started and can’t be stopped.  While the financial networks continue to focus on the rising U.S. stock market and Dollar, this represents a mindset that has totally gone insane.

Why?  Because the rapidly increasing Dollar and broader U.S. stock market do not represent a healthy economy, rather it reveals the swelling of the cancerous U.S. financial tumor.  The faster and larger it grows, the more it will endanger the U.S. economy.

I am completely surprised by the lack of wisdom in the Mainstream and Alternative media analyst community.  While many Mainstream analysts are probably paid to put out positive financial or economic propaganda, a good portion of the alternative media has no clue about the key factor that is driving the world straight over the cliff.

Furthermore, many precious metals investors are throwing in the towel and getting into the greatest overvalued stock market frenzy in history.
