Leaving aside all of the political machinations, leaks, civil unrest, and executive orders, let’s stop to catch our breath and to point out that we are still in the first month of the Trump presidency. This article will focus on economics, geopolitics, and an assortment of generalized scenarios. First, a brief background is necessary:
The global monetary system is going through a seismic shift that will hopefully mark the end of the latest debt and fiat currency ponzi scheme. This shift is absolutely necessary for true economic and geopolitical prosperity to be unleashed, but because it involves the dismantling of existing foundational institutions there is virtually no chance of going through such a transition unscathed. The analysis that follows is admittedly speculative, but its purpose is to lay out different scenarios, to discuss the likely aftershocks, and to provide concrete decision-making advice for the here and now.
