And if the worst does occur, find out what you can do to protect your assets, and more…

A Slave to the Bubbles It Blows

The common worry about the Fed is that by pumping money into the economy, it will cause inflation.

But the real danger lies in the Fed’s role as “lender of last resort” to the banking system.

Watch now to find out:

  • The Fed’s unspoken “third mandate” and how it affects the economy, as I mentioned in Tuesday’s Bauman Daily.
  • How the aftermath of the Fed’s FOMC meeting is an example of how it has become “a slave to the bubbles it blows.”
  • Three ways to prepare for the day the Fed takes away the punch bowl … and how to survive the aftermath.
  • And more.
