Porter Stansberry, "national nightmare"


Poverty & polarization

- nearly half the men ages 18-34 now live with their parents
--- the highest level since the Great Depression?
- in one of America's richest cities (Seattle) there are now 400 unauthorized homeless camps
--- under bridges and along freeway medians
- 78% of the U.S. population now lives paycheck to paycheck
--- with essentially zero savings
- some people — CEOs, tech entrepreneurs, and other members of the "1%" — are doing great
--- There's never been a better time for wealthy Americans
--- But the truth is, for most people, the situation is getting much, much worse.
