Charles Hugh Smith

At readers' request, I've prepared a biography. I am not confident this is the right length or has the desired information; the whole project veers uncomfortably close to PR. On the other hand, who wants to read a boring bio? I am reminded of the "Peanuts" comic character Lucy, who once issued this terse biographical summary: "A man was born, he lived, he died." All undoubtedly true, but somewhat lacking in narrative.

2023 is The Era of Scarcity | Charles Hugh Smith

We are in the midst of extremely difficult era shifts. One of the fundamental ideas in economics is scarcity. It indicates that there is a gap between the supply and demand for an item or service. At times of scarcity, people’s needs and wants are unending, but there are only so many resources that can be distributed. The forces of evolution and adaptation are trying to choose the appropriate course of action.

How Much Resources Do We Waste? | Charles Hugh Smith

Charles Hugh Smith argues that our society values economic growth based on resource consumption and waste, rather than efficient use and recycling. We need to change our mindset to invest in resources and minimize waste, rather than celebrating activities that increase resource use. This requires differentiating between productive investment and wasteful consumption and recycling industrial waste to create a sustainable economy.

People Don’t Account For Wastish Growth Charles Hugh Smith

At Wealthion, we talked about the current state of copper mining and how it has changed over time. It mentions that boulders are no longer being mined and instead weaker dilute grades of copper are being targeted. TExtracting copper has become more expensive and difficult compared to the past. The Canyon Mine in Utah is used as an example of this.
Two drivers of growth in the last 40 years: financialization and globalization. Financialization refers to the increasing importance of financial markets and financial instruments in the economy. Globalization refers to the increasing interconnectedness of economies and societies around the world.

Watch this full video to know how these drivers are related to copper mining or why they are important.

China Is Trapped… Charles Hugh Smith

There are millions of empty apartments in China that developers and investors are buying as a way to store their wealth, which has disconnected the housing market from the needs of ordinary people. This is a result of entrenched legacy systems that make it difficult to make changes, even if they would benefit the country as a whole. China needs to break free from these systems to create a more sustainable and equitable future.

As the old saying goes: "It ain’t what you don’t know that gets you into trouble. It’s what you know for sure that just ain’t so."

It’s easy for investors to fall into the traps laid by their belief systems. Whether to the bullish or bearish side, we all have our own biases that can warp the way we perceive reality.

Which is why forcing ourselves to take a systemic view of the economy, markets & society can be so helpful. By understanding the way our systems work and projecting current developments through to their most logical outcomes, we can sidestep most of our biases as we develop our predictions and conclusions.

Self-Reliance in the 21st Century By Charles Hugh Smith, Chapter by Chapter Preview

Hear it Here – https://adbl.co/3iJOonl

Just as no one was left unaffected by the rise of globalization, no one will be unaffected by its demise. The only response that reduces our vulnerability is self-reliance.

When Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote his famous essay Self-Reliance in 1841, the economy was localized and households supplied many of their own essentials. In our hyper-globalized economy, we’re dependent on distant sources for our essentials.

Emerson defined self-reliance as being our best selves—thinking for ourselves rather than following the conventional path. Self-reliance in the 21st century means reducing our dependency on fragile supply chains and becoming producers as well as consumers.

Self-reliance is often confused with self-supporting (making enough money to support

Ep. 293: The State Episode with Doug Casey and Charles Hugh Smith with Michael Covel

My guests today are Doug Casey and Charles Hugh Smith.

Casey is the founder and chairman of Casey Research, a provider of paid subscription newsletter services espousing libertarian viewpoints as the justification for the purchase of highly speculative microcap stocks, precious metals, and other investments.

Smith is an American writer and blogger. He is the chief writer for the site “Of Two Minds”. Started in 2005, this site has been listed No. 7 in CNBC’s top alternative financial sites. Smith’s economic works stress the value and efficacy of decentralizing power and wealth, the individual’s power of self-determination and the value of community, which in his view has been diminished by the state.

The topics are state power and central planning.

Of Two Minds with Charles Hugh Smith, Ep #23

Today’s guest is Charles Hughes Smith, who’s been writing about socioeconomic and technology trends since 2005 on his blog, “Of Two Minds.” His blog hosts over 4,000 pieces of original content. His work is also on Patreon and ZeroHedge.

Charles seeks to understand why our sociopolitical and economic systems are failing and lays out alternative ways to find a sustainable way of living. His work doesn’t fit into an ideological box and he believes that ideologies are obsolete and misleading.

Charles has written 16 books, the most recent entitled “Self-Reliance in the 21st Century.” His blog, “Of two minds” means that he is open to changing his views when presented with new knowledge. Secondly, the blog itself is the result of two minds—his and his global readership.

Ein Kommentar von Charles Hugh Smith.

Passive Akzeptanz des Verleugnens

Ob wir uns dessen bewusst sind oder nicht, wir reagieren mit passiver Akzeptanz des Verleugnens.

Sie haben zweifellos gehört, dass die Neuanordnung der Liegestühle auf der Titanic eine Analogie für die Sinnlosigkeit der Genehmigung von politischen Änderungen zur Bewältigung von Systemkrisen ist. Ich habe die Titanic als Analogie benutzt, um die Fragilität unseres Finanzsystems und den "Streifhieb" der Pandemie zu erklären: "Warum unser Finanzsystem wie die Titanic ist" (vom 15. März 2016) und "Coronavirus und die ‘unsinkbare’

When You Can’t Go On by Charles Hugh Smith, Chapter by Chapter

adbl.co/3OFQ1MB

When I burned out, what I wanted but could not find was a practical guide by someone who had experienced burnout themselves. None of the material I found spoke to what I was experiencing or to my sense that our economy is now optimized to burn people out.

I decided to write the guide I wanted but could not find. This is my experience of burnout, reckoning and renewal.

This book is my account of what helped me. The intended audience is other burnouts and those who want to better understand the experience of burnout.

Burnout is a life-changing experience in a good way, as absurd as that may sound to those in the depths of burnout. To paraphrase Samuel Beckett: I can’t go on but I must go on. There is a way forward.

Global Crisis, National Renewal: A (Revolutionary) Grand Strategy by: Charles Hugh Smith

Hear it Here – adbl.co/3IaffPS

National Security is not just military force. In an age of scarcity, security is a degrowth economy of energy independence, social cohesion and civic virtue.
All nations, including the United States, face systemic crises that are reinforcing each other at an explosive point in history. The threats to the republic are unprecedented, but the status quo is incapable of understanding that conventional responses are an accelerant of fatal synergies: the status quo is now the problem rather than the solution.
These novel crises demand an entirely new Grand Strategy. The emergence of solutions is not pre-ordained; the collapse of the state is also a possibility, though far from an ideal one.
The global crisis offers an opportunity to redraw America’s Grand

Charles Hugh Smith: Move Out Of The Unraveling City BEFORE Economic Collapse

Systemically, the US is undergoing socio-economic collapse, which means that individually, we all have to understand the place we are living, and, more importantly, if we need to move out of that place in order to not just survive, but to perhaps even thrive in our unfolding economic landscape.

Charles Hugh Smith from Of Two Minds joined Paul "Half Dollar" Eberhart of Silver Doctors on Monday, January 17, 2022, for a robust discussion on the collapse of the US in general, and the individual decisions and abstract dynamics regarding regional economic dependencies and weaknesses specifically.

For robust discussion around all of those topics and a whole lot more, tune-in to the podcast in its entirety.
