Dear Concerned American,
If you think everything in America is just fine…
And the people “behind the curtain” of our financial system care about you and your money…
This might not be for you.
But if instead you feel like we do – like you’re never really getting the full story from the mainstream media…
And we did something about it.
We believe when it comes to your retirement… your money… and your financial safety in the coming years…
You deserve better.
That’s why we started American Consequences – a new, online magazine about what’s really happening in American finance… and what’s about to happen next.
The first thing you should know is that American Consequences is 100% free.
There’s no subscription fee… no “paywall”… nothing.
Simply sign up below and get it delivered to your inbox each month.
And the second thing you should know is that we do NOT accept any sort of payment from the companies that we write about. Ever.
Remember – when you’re watching the news or reading the paper… no one cares about you.
The real customers of most mainstream media sources are the advertisers.
Without their money, the news goes dark.
And the media’s biggest advertisers have a huge role in what information ultimately makes it to you.
Which might be one reason why they keep putting out dangerously wrong “advice” and information.
One very famous commentator on CNBC told viewers, “Bear Stearns is not in trouble … Don’t move your money from Bear”…
…the same month that the company’s stock plummeted from $98 to $10 a share during the financial crisis.
And maybe you remember when Fortune magazine named Enron “America’s Most Innovative Company” for six consecutive years…
That’s right, the company behind the biggest corporate fraud scandal in history.
The company whose stock tumbled from $90 to 6 cents a share and devastated retirement accounts across the county.
(One guy who worked as a plant manager for 30 years lost nearly every penny of his $1.3 million retirement fund. His retired wife had to go back to work and he started mowing lawns to get by.)
It’s amazing that anyone still listens to these talking heads.
But maybe it’s just because there’s never been an alternative, until now.
American Consequences is privately funded by America’s largest independent financial research firm.
We publish unfiltered, contrarian research.
Our work is read by close to a million people in over 120 countries.
We don’t “run money” for anyone… we NEVER own stocks the stocks we write about… and we don’t bow down to sponsors of any kind.
Actually, we don’t bow down to anyone.

Editor in chief P.J. O'Rourke (see below) takes an innovative look at innovation, asking which bright ideas actually glow, and surveying inventions that might become conventions. Or might not.
An awful lot of newness is out there in the market. And some of it is awful. But some of it provides awful good opportunities for investors.
We try to tell the good from the bad from the ugly.
We've even collected a list of innovations that ought to be unnovated.
Then we have three industry experts detailing some of the most important real innovations changing the future of America...
1. You've heard about self-driving cars. But you haven't heard about what comes next. The real breakthrough in self-driving cars is self-teaching cars.
2. A veteran Texas oil man goes beyond fracking and lets us in on the new tech that will drive the next commodity supercycle.
3. And a finance wiz is predicting the greatest transformation in how people pay for stuff since people started paying for stuff... He says cash is dead. In five years or less you will be paying for everything, from a new car to a pack of gum, with your phone.
Then an angel investor and tech exec explains how innovation isn't limited to legal enterprise... and why cybercrime is likely to surge in the years ahead. No more masked robbers with guns... Lots more hard-to-unmask robbers with keyboards.
Plus, a profile of serial entrepreneur Jesse Itzler... an endurance super-athlete bikes the Ho Ho Chi Minh Trail... "Voice of the market" takes on oil and bitcoin... and why the "Internet of Things" has a dangerous catch.
If you've ever wondered whether the "next big thing" is real or not – this issue is for you.
