05 - Ten years on - so far, so good!

I remember taking this picture on the train from the airport into HK on my first morning after the overnight flight from Brussels via Zurich.  Somehow I had expected that there might be a party on the plane since we flew over the end of the year, but...nothing!   Also it did strike me as symbolic that I got a one-way ticket.

Great winter weather in HK this week - we spent a few days away in Cheung Chau; for such a small island there are sooo many people living there and it is a totally different atmosphere to much of Hong Kong - very traditional and relaxed.

Apart from that, quite a few hikes this week - you have really got to appreciate the good weather and convenience of HK.  No matter where you go you can easily get to and from the hike with public transport and you have all conceivable environments available - beach, forrest, mountain and even city-walks.  Not to mention girls in the trees!


Michael Saylor is a required follow - gotta appreciate his clarity of vision and eloquence of explanation.  The CEO!   Do also check out Michael's legacy, The Saylor Academy.  Saylor Academy is a nonprofit initiative working since 2008 to offer free and open online courses to all who want to learn.  Offering nearly 100 full-length courses at the college and professional levels, each built by subject matter experts. All courses are available to complete — at your pace, on your schedule, and free of cost.  @saylor

Saifedean Ammous - author of The Fiat Standard - required reading for these times to understand what the governments are doing to you and your savings.  @saifedean

Jeff Booth - author of The Price of Tomorrow - further evidence, if needed that the current system (over 100 years in the making) is ending.  Jeff has a unique ability to connect the dots to something bigger. Few books offer a more succinct, provocative, and enlightening view of the world as it is today, and what it could be tomorrow. Your world view will transform instantly. @jeffbooth


Coming to a city near you - Price Gouging, Price Controls, And Inflation....  Pomp's latest newsletter read by him.  

Joe Brown also explains how Turkey inches closer to Hyperinflation.  I do rather think that you need to pay attention to what happens here.  Turkey ranks 11th place globally in terms of GDP at PPP in 2020 ahead of Italy and Mexico and just behind UK and France.

Super interesting interview of Cory Klippstein, CEO of Swan Bitcoin - indeed a reminder that we are still early: SLP333 Cory Klippsten - Building for Bitcoiners


One of the best interviews of the year: Peter and Lyn discuss Currency wars; I can listen to Lyn all day.

Equally informative is James' Holiday special with Jeff Booth and Greg Foss

Mark explains all about endless wars:  Central Banks Covert Plan For Never-Ending Stimulus | Get Ready.  And then, George G: Breaking: Media Now Saying US Needs PRICE CONTROLS!!

James' fast-paced outlook for 2022 is wide-ranging and informative

I do recommend: Guy's tips for Security for your Crypto


I finally finished Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. I really did not like this book when I read it 18 years ago.  Second time round, though still a dark read,  you will spot so many parallels to what is happening in the world right now.  Well worth the 30+ hours on audible.com or 896 pages!  Not to mention that whilst the "first wave" from Voldemort is over there are two more episodes to come...

Still In my queue: Harry Potter - book 6 (Half Blood Prince) and book 7 (Deathly Hallows) ...

I have now started on When Money Dies - The Nightmare of Deficit Spending, Devaluation, and Hyperinflation in Weimar, Germany.   This really is required reading for these times.  Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it.  Once aware of them you will see signs all around you.

I think it is not linked on their website but still accessible if you know where to look (maybe download and safestore it before it disappears): The Bank of England 1914-21 (Unpublished War History). This corroborates and elaborates on what you can read in The Creature from Jekyll Island.

That's it!

No one can be told what The Matrix is.
