A Dark Winter Is Coming   Emma Walsh Nov. 22, 2020   This week, Bill and Elizabeth’s enforced nine-month-long lockdown on their ranch in Northwestern Argentina came to an end. They’re on their way back home for Thanksgiving. So this week, we had our final few updates and stories from the ranch… …and an ominous warning about the dark winter that lies ahead. Regards, Emma Walsh Managing Editor, Bill Bonner’s Diary   Getting Ready to Leave the Ranch As they prepare to leave the ranch and return to the U.S. this week, Bill and Elizabeth throw an asado, inviting their friends and neighbors to join them for a farewell BBQ. Beginning of the End? The Federal Reserve is “printing” $11 billion in new money per day. And the rate at which money is changing hands is going up. The smart money is selling dollars. Our editor asks: Is this the beginning of the end for the fake dollar? Dark Winter Cometh The real economy cannot produce a real recovery. So the feds step in, with their fake money and fake growth. But even though they can goose up consumer spending and jazz up the stock market, they can’t boost real output… real earnings… or real wealth. Back to the Usual Grift Bill is on his way back to the U.S. And he’s back to his usual beat – money....

What now?

Time to Get Back to Normal   Emma Walsh Nov. 15, 2020   This week, news of a potential coronavirus vaccine lifted everyone’s spirits… and their investment portfolios… And with the U.S. presidential election in the rearview mirror, Bill looks forward to the next decade… …searching for his next “Trade of the Decade”… and reflecting on the successes of his last two. And before he and Elizabeth leave the ranch for their return to the U.S., one group of locals drops by to say buen viaje… Regards, Emma Walsh Managing Editor, Bill Bonner’s Diary   Requiem for a Heavyweight Last week’s championship bout between Donald Trump and Joe Biden was easily the worst heavyweight fight our editor has ever seen. The champ couldn’t land a decisive blow. The challenger’s weary legs had lost their spring. But after a dirty fight, the Big Man is out. Back to Normal? News of a vaccine has everyone looking forward to a return to our normal, pre-coronavirus lives. This desire to get back to normal most likely also helped Joe Biden to victory in the election. But “normal” service under Biden won’t get the nation out of its steep decline. Devil on the Loose Fake money is the Devil’s fodder. Financed by the feds’ printing press, Donald Trump already had the runaway government spending bus in high gear. Now, Joe Biden, assisted by...

What Comes After the Election Dust Settles   Emma Walsh Nov. 08, 2020   The U.S. presidential election has been front and center of everyone’s minds this week. But Bill believes that no matter who sits in the Oval Office for the next four years, America’s trajectory to destruction won’t change. We’re heading for one of the roughest, most dangerous periods in U.S. history. To take his mind off the election… and before he leaves the ranch in Argentina and travels back home to the U.S. later this month… Bill has one last building project to take care of… Regards, Emma Walsh Managing Editor, Bill Bonner’s Diary   What Tomorrow’s Vote Will Change With the 2020 presidential election just a day away, Americans are getting ready to stand in line at the polling stations and do their duty. But does voting really bring about change? Look Beyond the Election Bill believes the outcome of the election won’t change much. The American economy is racing towards a calamitous crisis. And neither Biden nor Trump will reverse its course. So Bill takes a look at how to play the inevitable fall of the U.S. dollar… The National Nightmare Begins Regardless who wins the 2020 U.S. presidential election, Bill believes America is headed for one of the roughest, most dangerous periods in U.S. history.

Weak Men of USAmerica

Social, Political, and Economic Disaster Ahead   Emma Walsh Nov. 1, 2020   The Originario War continues… And now, it looks like the ranch’s vital water supply might have been cut off. Bill, Elizabeth, and their ranch foreman ride up the valley to investigate… stopping off en route to “negotiate” with one of the troublesome originarios. Meanwhile, back in the U.S., the presidential election is fast approaching. Following last week’s analysis of both candidates’ chances, this week, Bill outlines why he believes the outcome won’t make much difference. No matter who sits in the Oval Office, he believes, America is still facing a difficult, destructive descent into social, political, and economic disaster. Regards, Emma Walsh Managing Editor, Bill Bonner’s Diary   A Triumph for Democracy Our editor predicts that Joe Biden will win the presidential election next week. But his policies will likely only speed up America’s descent into a social, political, and economic disaster. The Plan That Can’t Fail The feds’ formula – wreck the real economy and then try to shore up what is left with “printing press” money – is a classic. It has worked the world over for centuries. It never fails… until it does… A Challenge to Which We Are Ill-Suited In a break from his political and economic commentary, Bill updates us on life on his ranch in Argentina. The OriginarioWar – in...

US Election 2020

Bill’s Election Preview   Emma Walsh Oct. 25, 2020   This week, Bill takes a look at the two main candidates in the upcoming U.S. presidential election. Unfortunately, neither measures up to scrutiny. Bill doesn’t see how either Donald Trump or Joe Biden can get us out of the mess we’re in… or if they even recognize how dire the situation really is. Can American voters really have any hope for a better future when they go to the polls in nine days’ time? Regards, Emma Walsh Managing Editor, Bill Bonner’s Diary   Losing the Battle for America’s Soul Many consider the upcoming U.S. presidential election to be the most important in modern times. Bill opines that it’s not going to matter who wins the White House race – the country is going the same direction either way… An Impartial Review of Trump’s Record Donald Trump made plenty of big promises on his first presidential election campaign trail. Today, our editor gets out his scorecard to see how well Trump has done during his time in the Oval Office… Road to Bankruptcy Today, Bill looks at Donald Trump’s management of the country’s finances. Admittedly, he inherited an already bad financial situation. But during his time in office, America’s public debt as a percentage of GDP has grown faster than in any other presidential term of office. Mother Nature Has...
