The New Concensus

Gold is up, the dollar down, and Wall Street has a whole new consensus—as always offered with enormous confidence. We explain why some of the assumptions are wrong. Our formula for financial success: be aware of the challenges at hand, consider various possible outcomes and, as they become more defined, react and adjust.
