A rare opportunity to collect more government cash

A rare opportunity to collect more government cashIf you’re over the age of 18, you’re eligible to collect up to $1,003 a month in extra government cash. That’s not an exaggeration! My research proves that every single person who ever applied to the program I’d like to show you today had the chance to receive a check. Better still, all it took was about 90 seconds of their time and a small membership fee of about $20. Get the details here.

 

Trade Agreement Should Boost Our Portfolios

By Benjamin Shepherd on November 5, 2015

After seven years of wrangling over terms, definitions and protocols, twelve countries surrounding the Pacific Ocean announced last month that they had finally reached an agreement on the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP).

Governing trade relations between the United States, Canada, Australia, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, Peru, Brunei, Vietnam, Chile, New Zealand and Singapore, the deal will cover roughly 40% of global trade with a value of about $30 trillion, so it’s a pretty big deal. It also may grow with six more countries having expressed an interest in joining the trade pact.

The deal has been controversial here in the United States, with many lawmakers concerned that it will have relatively little economic benefit for our country and could actually help send more jobs overseas. That’s a big part of why Congress built a 90-day cooling off period in the fast track authority it granted the President to negotiate and implement the TPP this summer. With 30 chapters and running to more than 2,000 pages, Congress will need every one of those days to actually wade through it.

While there is still some risk that the deal might not get Congressional approval here in the U.S., despite the muted economic impact the pact would give us some important political advantages in the Asia-Pacific region. By giving the other participating countries easier access to the U.S. markets, particularly as Chinese demand for commodities has been cooling, we can help smooth out any potential economic swings as the Chinese economy cools. At the same time, by reducing the economic dependence on China, we’re securing more geopolitical sway for ourselves.

Macroeconomic and geopolitical issues aside, the TPP could have real benefits for individual companies in our Global Income Edge portfolios.

Here’s What’s Really Going to Crush the Market

Most folks understand the basic concept of inflation… things cost more money. But tragically, most don’t understand the real implications of what it means for their financial future. 

Or just how dangerous it’s becoming right now. Today.

And there are two reasons for that…

First, the U.S. government’s calculations barely take into account two of the things you and I are paying more and more for every day: energy and food.

Second, since inflation really hasn’t been an issue for the past 30 years here in the U.S., most analysts won’t dare to say it’s on the rise because they’ll suffer professionally. 

But I’ve made a name for myself by always saying what needs to be said. Which is why I’ve prepared a new special report that’ll give you simple instructions on how to protect yourself from the coming storm.

And better still…

It gives you the full story on the six types of investments that are destined to soar 275%… 375%… even up to 575% over the next few years as the winds of inflation flatten the U.S. economy.
