Revenge of the Rare Earth Metals – Why Rising Auto Theft Rates Have Nothing to Do with Cars

Dear Retail Investor,

What’s happening now that we haven’t seen since 2008?

Industry insiders are already spotting some major warning signs of a slow-motion crisis. 

For investors, however, it’s creating a tremendous opportunity.  

And there’s a handful of small-cap stocks that have been left out of the current rally.

But they could catch up fast, and deliver big gains to investors who spot this opportunity now.

From CEO to Walmart Greeter – How the Government has Screwed Retirees

Until early 2001, there had been an informal contract between American workers and the federal government.

That contract went something like this:

Work hard, save, and when it’s time to retire, you can live off the interest on your savings.

It worked well for decades, until the Federal Reserve started cutting interest rates — causing millions of Americans to scramble for jobs when they should have been enjoying their “golden years”.
