If you remember life before the pandemic (only a few short months ago), there were common excuses for being out of shape: 1) they have long commutes, 2) they don’t have the time and 3) they are forced to eat bad food due to client meetings. Fast forward through the pandemic and what we learn […]
For our astute readers, we’ve been missing in action for a couple of weeks as we were finalizing research into the great depression of the 1930s along with the impact of money printing.

How many stock market experts could have predicted a massive decline in profits for practically every sector outside of technology, medical/bio-tech and grocery stores?
