Why Should Anyone Subscribe to a
The primary reason for subscribing to independent financial market newsletters is that they are independent sources for ideas and perspective.
Publications that are dependent on advertisers are beholding to those advertisers to at least some degree. For instance, nearly everywhere you turn articles from all mediums promote the nutritional goodness of "whole grains." Yet grains are the primary reason for why we have an Omega-3 fatty acid deficiency which is associated with nearly 100% of all chronic diseases.
So, not only is our whole food system based on grain but most of the advertising dollars come from companies that make and sell food products that are grain-based or are grain. Therefore the nutritional story is skewed for acceptance by the naive masses.
In the financial world it's not considered good form to be negative. Salesmen, no matter their fancy titles (analyst, account executive, advisor, etc.), are all salesmen. They all know that in the securities business you can't convince the masses to pour their hard earned money into retirement plans if the inherent dangers are openly discussed.
Unfortunately there are inherent risks existing today that are built into our financial/banking system that go well beyond any of the risks Americans have had to contend with since the Civil War. If these risks exist, don't you think you should be aware of them?
This doesn't mean "independent" advise is always correct, but independent inputs can only broaden your knowledge base and open up additional opportunities that you would never have been exposed to if you followed the same news and information sources all others receive.

Keeping one's head in the sand means nothing other than you will remain a victim of irrational government policies. There are consequences for the debt event illustrated above in the chart. This has been a discussion point in The Slanker Report for several years now.

How about the Euro? Is it sustainable? Did the European Union's October 26, 2011 comprehensive policy response to the government debt crisis, which was threatening the stability of the euro currency and global economy, solve the fundamental problem of the Euro? What about Spain, Portugal, France, and other deeply indebted countries in the Euro Zone? If the Euro debt crisis is real, why is this currency still up?
