Off The Cuff: Has Society Lost Its Backbone?

Is everything in America is now “Too Big To Fail”?
Investing for a future of secular inflation
The dangers of cancel culture & the “woke” movement

Dave is very concerned about the trajectory America and much of the world is headed, careening down a slope that history shows ends in economic malaise, social discord and currency collapse. As a society, we seem to have lost our backbone; every politician is willing to sacrifice tomorrow’s prosperity for today’s quick fix, and the populace only rewards that can-kicking behavior.

When everyone is so unwilling to face consequences they are making a devil’s bargain: receiving a carefree today in exchange for a tomorrow filled with much larger problems that refuse to be postpones any longer. Are we ready for that reckoning?
