World-Gone-Crazy-Bob Davis Podcast 1044

A World Gone Crazy

Firstly extraordinary circumstances cause me to break down key issues in a World Gone Crazy. Find out what’s up with me out here in the desert in World-Gone-Crazy-Bob Davis Podcast 1044.

Financial Strain

Secondly someone needs to explain some facts as our financial system faces significant financial strain.

Most importantly this is as close as I’ll ever be to discussing politics.

Causes

However I am limiting myself to talking about what’s causing this financial strain.

No Picnic

Certainly what Americans are experiencing right now is no picnic.

Nomads are no exception.

Options

But we do have some options folks back home may not have.

Mobile

Importantly we’re mobile.

Free Camping

Even more we camp for free.

Fuel Prices Slowing My Roll

On the other hand the high cost of fuel has certainly slowed my roll.

And everyone else out here in the land of the nomad.

Stress Anyone?

Meanwhile a majority of Americans say they are under a great deal of stress right now.

A Mix Of Bad News

To clarify we’ve had a pandemic. Inflation has already made food, fuel and rent more expensive. And throw the Ukraine situation into the mix.

That’s a lot of stress.

But as a the result of hitting the road stress is a little easier for me to manage right now.

What’s Next?

Most importantly what happens next?

Financial Stress

Firstly our financial system is under a lot of stress

Stagflation

Stagflation is a concern.

Inflation

Inflation is ravaging all of us.

Deflation

On the other hand the cure for high prices may eventually be high prices.

No To Higher Prices

Even more I don’t think we can accept prices this high and eventually we will reject them.

Recession Ahead

That is to say eventually high prices effect demand to the point where an economic recession develops.

Certainly some economists think we’re nearing that point.

Weird Tension In The World

Above all with the situation in the Ukraine and Eastern Europe getting more tense by the day I feel like we have to take certain steps to protect ourselves. Details in World-Gone-Crazy-Bob Davis Podcast 1044.

Not Easy

Finally these aren’t easy times.

Take A Break

So give yourself a break every now and then.

To sum up I don’t like talking about these things.

Living Life Through My Podcasts

But I live as much as my life as possible through these podcasts.

And this is what I am living through right now.

Winds-Of-Change-Bob Davis Podcast 1043

Winds Of Change

Firstly Winds Of Change are blowing. And suddenly media has exploded with prophecy and prediction. I won’t do that. Learn why in Winds-Of-Change-Bob Davis Podcast 1043.

Cycles

Secondly many cycles are ending all at once.

Tough Three Years

Certainly we have run the gamut in the last three years.

But more is to come.

Storm Of Change

Most importantly rather than tell subscribers and listeners what to think and what to do in Winds-Of-Change-Bob Davis Podcast 1043 I’ll talk about the fact that we’re in the middle of a storm of change.

No Predictions

Above all I won’t make predictions.

I won’t tell you what I think this leader should do.

Even more whether I think another leader is off his or her rocker.

Listen Dream Think

However if you’re back in the world this podcast is an opportunity to listen, dream and think.

Fear and Uncertainty Back Home

Further it’s an opportunity to avoid the swirl of fear and uncertainty that characterizes the world of bricks and sticks.

Nomads and Crisis

Therefore let’s spend some time talking about how we nomads deal with these kinds of crisis.

Time Lines

For example our time lines are different.

Thinking It Through

That is to say we have more time to process these things.

To think it through.

Called To Be Here

In the same vein I have talked to many nomads who feel they were called to be out here at this time.

Certainly they don’t always know why.

Just that they are here.

Uncertainty

Whether it is the Ukraine, The Pandemic, Inflation or economic uncertainty it impacts nomads differently.

Wonder and Worry

In short when I look up into the stars late at night by the fire I too wonder and worry about the future.

No Homework

On the other hand with so many cycles bisecting the present time I am not sure what can be ‘done’ about it.

And I refrain from doing homework for people.

No Telling You What To Think

Or telling them what to think.

Winds Of Change Blowing Hard

In conclusion the winds of change have been blowing pretty hard for the last three years or more.

Impacts

In addition even nomads may see impacts in terms of rigs and fuel.

Let’s Start Building The Future

Finally future developments depend on a number of technology breakthroughs underway as we speak.

To sum up, let’s get on with it.

Corona-Recession-Becoming-Depression?-Bob Davis Podcast 941

Corona-Recession-Becoming-Depression?

Firstly chances of a happy ending to this pandemic are fading. Learn more in Corona-Recession-Becoming-Depression?-Bob Davis Podcast 941.

Going Against The Optimists

Secondly I know what I have to say goes against the optimists.

Pollyanna

However there’s optimism, then there’s Pollyanna.

Mental Health

Thirdly and most importantly are concerns and questions about our overall mental health.

Giving In To Reopening Pressure

Certainly it’s now clear some states gave in to political pressure to reopen.

Shutting Back Down

As a result we face the specter of shutting back down. One of the reasons I ask whether the Corona Recession Is Becoming A Depression?

Negative Economic Impacts

Above all the big concern is additional negative impacts on the US Economy.

Relief Running Out

Even more unemployment benefits and business relief packages are running out.

The Sheriff Is Here With Your Eviction Notice

Finally as the grace period on evictions ends people are forced to move.

“This Is All Going To End, You’ll See”

This was all supposed to be over by now, right?

Taxpayers Are Broke…So Is The Government

Meanwhile Congress and the White House are negotiating new relief that starts at one trillion dollars. Where is the production and the tax revenue to pay for it?

Enormous Debt To Stop The Panic

More debt, more money printing and more borrowing future growth to stop the bleeding now.

The Boom Was A Dream

In addition the bill for the central bank’s propping up the world economy for at least ten years is coming due. Our economic boom was a dream. Corona is the shock that ended it.

Good Morning Sunshine!

In short it is not a pretty picture.

Optimism Rests On Stock Market and Unemployment Numbers

Similarly you’re going to hear a lot about unemployment numbers, the stock market and so on. But these are not how we measure the economy.

Top Guys Hedging Their Bets

In conclusion top financial people are already hedging their bets. Warning of gathering storm clouds and trouble ahead.

Kanye West, Protests and Karen

The fact that these stories have not seeped into the mainstream is especially relevant. But when you have riots, Kanye West and Karen’s antics at the WalMart to share on social media, who cares about the economy?

Really Hope The Optimists Are Right

To sum up, batten down the hatches America, in about a month we all may wish the eternal optimists were right.
