Janet Yellen’s chat with the House and the Senate finance committees is forcing Wall Street to face the cold, hard fact that the U.S. economy is struggling and we don’t have an easy way out of this mess.
But there is one bright spot within the market as stocks, oil and the dollar tumble.

Debt and the Financial Endgame
Famed investor Jim Rogers says American investors aren’t heeding the warning signs of bloated debt, out-of-control central banks, ultra-low commodity prices and rising international tensions (all of which The Sovereign Society has likewise been warning about for years).

He also spends time discussing his decision to move from New York to Singapore nearly a decade ago, and whether he thinks it was the right decision to make for him and his family.
