the only chart that matters

Toronto, 2017.05.02

My wife's an economist by training and is now learning to become an FX trader – I keep thinking of a certain chart. It's one created originally by Chris Martenson and the gang at "peak prosperity". If I read it (and it is meant to be representative, and not depicting exact dates) we're right around the peak in industrial and food output.

Here comes history

Kinda hard to figure out what, if any, of our current values and activities are going to matter in retrospect.
