Off The Cuff With Quoth The Raven (Chris Irons)

Originally published at: Off The Cuff With Quoth The Raven (Chris Irons) – Peak Prosperity

If you haven’t been reading and/or listening to Chris Irons, the force behind the Quoth The Raven (QTR) Fringe Finance blog (link to QTR) you really should add it to your retinue.

He’s tuned in, irreverent, and observant.

Today we discuss Covid, vaccines, policies, and (naturally) monetary policy along with the fiscal train wreck that is bearing down on the US government. They all tie together.

It’s a good long one…so settle in.

@cmartenson The book you are looking for is “The Ethics of Money Production” by Hulsmann.

Curious mind here, wondering why you and this guest would want to podcast from his poorly fluffed bedroom/living room pillow backdrop. Granted, I’m not a follower of this kind looking man, I am just trying to understand this setup based on the content delivered.

That was great fun to hear the bald-faced truth spoken so irreverently. His substack just went into my daily-look tab.

Interesting that Chris Irons has added Bitcoin in addition to his Gold holdings.

His pillows are fluffed up far better than mine. :slight_smile: His mind is far from fluffy.

Does everyone remember the covid death tickers. Maybe we need one for inflation and purchasing power.

I used to happily donate to St. Jude’s… until they went off-the-rails with the Covid vaccine and mandates.

This is still up on their site:

I thought it was very insightful how Chris Irons used the term “tunnel vision” to illustrate how the creeps think. I immediately thought of a very tragic car accident that happened about 10-15 years ago in Westchester County, New York. I see this as an excellent metaphor for what is happening on a societal scale. They have a goal and don’t care how they reach it. They are out of their minds. They’re going the complete wrong direction at full speed…and they see no problem with any of it…

A woman was drinking and smoking pot while driving a van. She wound up going the wrong way on a highway and just kept speeding down it, seemingly unaware of any problem. It was determined she was probably suffering from “tunnel vision” as a result of the combined alcohol and drugs. She killed herself and 7 other people. One child survived (her own), with some injuries. A documentary was made, “There’s Something Wrong with Aunt Diane.” Don’t watch this if you’re sensitive, but it is an interesting study in psychology and how childhood neglect can lead to tragic results.
