Contrasts and Distortions Across the Pond


Here’s how to spot one opportunity from the next.

We have never seen events unfold as they have been over the last year so it’s much harder to guess what will happen next.

We cannot expect to return to normal (if “how it was” was normal) any time soon, probably ever?

The Wall Street Journal article shows one reason why we should continue to expect the unexpected.

The article says: Vaccination drives hold out the promise of curbing Covid-19, but governments and businesses are increasingly accepting what epidemiologists have long warned: The pathogen will circulate for years, or even decades, leaving society to coexist with Covid-19 much as it does with other endemic diseases like flu, measles, and HIV.

The ease with which the coronavirus spreads, the emergence of new strains and poor access to vaccines in large parts of the world mean Covid-19 could shift from a pandemic disease to an endemic one, implying lasting modifications to personal and societal behavior, epidemiologists say.

“Going through the five phases of grief, we need to come to the acceptance phase that our lives are not going to be the same,” said Thomas Frieden, former director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. “I don’t think the world has really absorbed the fact that these are long-term changes.”

Endemic Covid-19 doesn’t necessarily mean continuing coronavirus restrictions, infectious-disease experts said, largely because vaccines are so effective at preventing severe disease and slashing hospitalizations and deaths. Hospitalizations have already fallen 30% in Israel after it vaccinated a third of its population. Deaths there are expected to plummet in weeks ahead.

Events could even get worse.  In fact they may have as the New York Times article “U.K. Virus Variant Is Probably Deadlier, Scientists Say” (1) shows.

The article says “New research finds that the British variant is “likely” to be linked to a higher risk of hospitalization and death, laying bare the danger facing countries that ease restrictions.”

We should not rely totally on vaccinations to stimulate the economy.

The Wall Street Journal article “Will We Be Ready for the Next Pandemic?” (3) gives us even more pause for thought!

The world must move urgently in 2021 to develop strategies and systems for fighting diseases that could be even deadlier than Covid-19

Fast forward to 2023. The Covid-19 pandemic is largely behind us. Most of the world has been vaccinated, though we have to tamp down occasional flare-ups and people sometimes still wear masks. While we mourn the millions who died, we have entered a post-pandemic world in which most things are more or less as they were before Covid-19. Travel and trade are unrestricted; everything from dinner parties and big weddings to stadium concerts and megachurch services are being held again; and economies are booming to keep pace with pent-up demand.

Then, just as suddenly as Covid-19 emerged, disease detectives discover a fresh cluster of a new, pneumonia-like illness. Testing quickly confirms that it isn’t a variant of Covid-19 but a new influenza virus that jumped—somehow, somewhere—from birds to humans. The new virus is as infectious as the one that caused Covid-19 but four times as deadly. And unlike Covid-19, but like the devastating 1918 influenza pandemic, the new virus is particularly deadly to young adults—and, in this case, also to children.

These changes do not mean that you or I have to reduce our lifestyle.  In fact change creates opportunity if we adapt.

How do we adapt?

Since we cannot see the future, we need some way to look back that will help us move ahead in changing times.

For example there is little doubt that the pandemic has accelerated real estate profits for many people.  It sure has for me and my latest report “The Neapolitan Effect” explains how I a direct correlation between Naples and Mt. Dora real estate.

Here’s an example of how we see a connection between US stock opportunity that has already boomed and overseas stock opportunity that’s ready to energize.

I spotted this connection in the latest monthly Advisory produced by ENR Asset Management for its largest clients that is also sent to pour Pruppie Club members.

I have worked with ENR for decades as they are value investors and one of of the very few SEC registered investment advisors that can help US investors bank and hold assets with non US banks.

In the latest issue of the Advisory, ENR President Eric Rosemen outlines some special value in European SPACs.

ENR Asset Management

Eric wrote:  SPACs or Special Purpose Acquisition Companies are booming in the United States since 2020. SPACs exploded on the investment scene last year thanks to a flood of liquidity, a frothy market and an insatiable appetite among investors for new public companies.

According to SPAC Insider and Barron’s, 248 SPACs raised $83 billion in IPOs in 2020. Another 118 have already gone public in 2021. Among the
most popular SPACs are DraftKings (DKNG), Nikola (NKLA), Pershing Square Tontine Holdings (PSTH) and Virgin Galactic (SPCE).

Often referred to as blank-check companies, SPACs raise money from investors in an IPO to later put toward a merger with an operating company. Sponsors are tasked with identifying a target company and negotiating a deal to take it public via a merger with their SPAC. Basically, a SPAC is a cash shell; the SPAC sits on its cash awaiting a deal and them merges with a company. Many investors have chosen to
go this route, avoiding the IPO process because it is quicker and less expensive. Though I like some SPACs, investors should be discerning because several high-profile music and movie stars are jumping aboard while others will probably fail to find a target.

SPACs Hit Europe

After only a few minted deals in SPACs since 2005, the black-check trend came to Europe late in the fourth quarter last year. After a record number of SPACs in the United States last year valued at $83 billion, Europe raised only $786 million.

Time after time, I have been able to follow one hot stock idea from the US to Europe or Asia or Laton America and and vice versa.  What’s hot in one place is likely to catch on in the other.  All we have to do is expand our horizons so we can see the similarities, contrast, distortions and trends as one region rubs against the next.

CHAOS CREATES MANY OPPORTUNITIES FOR YOU

Cash in on the new normal.

If the pandemic has taught us anything it’s that the so called “experts” really don’t have a clue how to solve this problem. We cannot rely on their information. Instead, we need to plan for and prepare for our own “new normal” if we want to survive.

The pandemic is not the only problem.

The global response to this viral outbreak is just one signal of a world that’s sliding into a devastation and disorder.  The worst turmoil is still to come because of the economic destruction.

With mounting debt, we are well into an economic collapse that will be worse than the pandemic.

The current social economic archetype has already killed millions and destroyed the finances and lives of far more.   Worldwide, unemployment is at an all-time high.  Many businesses have been destroyed.

Governments are trying to solve the problem by throwing money on the fire and are they are being crushed in debt in the process.

Yet, this is just a beginning. It is estimated that it will take 10-15 years to recover from the economic devastation.

To survive the coming economic downturns, you’ll need to learn the importance of adjusting how you live, work, invest and take care of yourself for the next ten to fifteen years!
You can’t rely on governments to bail you out.

Adapt!

That’s exactly what Merri and I have been doing for the last 50 years.

We have learned the power of being able to adapt to constantly changing markets all over the world and created a not-so small fortune while doing so.  That’s why we’re uniquely qualified to teach you how to not just survive but to PROSPER during the challenging times ahead. Chaos always creates many opportunities for those who know how to spot them and take advantage of them. A good example has been the mass exodus from urban areas to more rural areas.

Since many are working from home, they can live anywhere. There is a shortage of good housing in rural areas now. Merri and I are buying then rehabbing houses to full the gap.  We saw this opportunity coming and jumped in early.

We let readers know of the risks of a pandemic, back in 2016.

Many are already enjoying a safer more secure and financially stable lifestyle already despite the lockdowns and crumbling economy.

Instead of waiting for things to get better, start preparing for things to get worse, much worse.

You also need to learn how to spot opportunities which are all around you. As the economy changes, the opportunities will change too.

That’s why Merri and I keep a constant pulse on opportunities worldwide and report our findings to a special club of unique individuals that we started over 30 years ago. For decades, this club has been called the International Club, but this year we renamed it the Pruppie Club.

What is a Pruppie?

Pruppieism, the new economic and social realism.  Pruppies, like Yuppies, expect everything to expand. They take advantage of every new benefit and technology they can. Pruppies enjoy using the fruits of our ancestor’s deliberations and labors to earn in this advanced technological world.

Pruppies, also, like Preppers, engage in activity that they love that will sustain them when society and the incredibly intricate weave of our global economy and society let us down.

We need to be both, Yuppies and Preppers, Pruppies!

Take profit from the incredible new technology that gives us super powers to earn and grow wealth. Be safe and secure, when social economic tidal waves like plagues, stagflation fascism and communism overwhelm the world.

Pruppies are prepared in case everything, everywhere, or at least everything relating to their income and savings fails and the fabric that surrounds their lives disintegrates into an unknown veil.

Yet a Pruppie’s preparation is not a sacrifice, but a joy as you will see.

Learn how you can become a Pruppie.

GET READY!

Enormous, economic, social, political and productivity change was already in the process.  The pandemic however has accelerated and accentuated the process. You still have time to join the few who are left standing from the 2020 disaster.

You still have time to become one who will prosper during the 2020 decade. You can be one of a small elite group who will be able to help restore a healthy world order. The world will be very different from what we have known for the past seventy years, but when looked at in a framework of longer history… it’s the same old tale.

The last couple of millennia are filled with stories of empires rising and falling.  There are basic conditions in each of these tales.

  • First the idea of debt loses its real meaning and rising to levels that are unsustainable.
  • Interest rates charged for debt fall to extremely low levels so the idea of investing for a known amount stops making sense.
  • Central monetary authorities replace innovation and increased productivity as activators of the economy.
  • Disparity of wealth widens dramatically and the spread increases.
  • There is so much divisiveness in politics within countries that social and political conflicts spiral.

We’re seeing these changes rapidly happening now!

I learned how to turn land into income producing property cheap and cashed in on the glamping craze a decade before the word was invented.  I want to share this trick with you.

Social and economic deterioration restricts safety, lifestyle, well-being and peace of mind. Social and economic shifts of this nature reduce the purchasing power of income.

Inflation, for example puts pensions and savings at risk. 

Growing deception allows manipulation of medical care, finances, the value of homes, how cars are bought, the price of gas, the education and raising of children, the food we buy and eat, the shows watched and the ways we work and play.

A very large and growing part of the public throughout the Western world no longer believes in the integrity of local or national government, law enforcement, health care, banking, pensions, legal systems, educational processes, media or church, just to name a few.

However, mistrust of anything authorities say has become so deeply rooted that even health assurances as serious as the pandemic have not been believed.

I invite you to join Merri and me in expecting the world to get better… to live and earn based on that expectation but…  to also prepare for bad times as well as good.  Just in case… the world goes sideways… we will still survive and prosper.

We do not give up anything much.  We can enjoy the good parts of the new economy, as we protect ourselves from what can be bad.

Let me be clear.  I expect that the world will get better, at least for the few who adapt and avoid the dangers that the changes from the COVID pandemic will bring.

The wealth of the world, albeit with inequality, will continue to grow.  This collapse of the global economy will bring an incredible new opportunity for those who know what to do.  These profit making avenues offer enormous income potential and even work well in disaster scenarios. Join the Pruppie Club so you can wake up every day knowing that you are prepared and in charge of your destiny.
