Neverendemic: How to Escape This Social Crisis
The Neverendemic has us in its grip and it is not letting go.
The policy panic of March 2020 brought us masks, social distancing, lockdowns, restrictions of all sorts, and a pervasive fear of others.
This warping of our social relations is set to become permanent, partly owing to government decrees but more due to the new disruptive ideas that have burrowed into our heads.
What can we do to turn back the clock to a dearly missed old normal? What is the proper role of government and how can politics and social action affect the future? What is our responsibility as citizens to contribute to a better society?
Mark Mullins provides his unique perspective on these absolutely critical issues, compelling everyone to question their own thoughts and beliefs in an engaging and respectful dialogue. This is the open discussion that we all need.
Investing for the Roaring ‘20s
Stock markets have never been valued higher. Interest rates have never been lower. Oil prices were actually negative a few months ago.
Gold is going through the roof and Bitcoin is – well, is it blasting higher or crashing to earth? It’s hard to say with all of the daily volatility.
Investors are understandably confused in this baffling era of economic recession and multi-trillion dollar bailouts. Maybe the pandemic is the least of our worries. Unlike the markets, we can hide from it under our beds.
Mark Mullins cuts through this mighty fog and highlights the key drivers of today’s markets, the economic underpinnings, the macro risks, and the way forward for intrepid investors of all shapes and sizes.
The New Normal: For Today or Forever?
Take the world, give it a very hard shake, and out pops a year like 2020.
As if pandemic, global recession, street protests, and political turmoil were not enough, the Gods have chosen to throw continent-sized forest fires and the threat of social revolution in our way. What next, unseasonable cold?
What is the meaning of this time from hades? How should we rate our political leaders and their responses? What will be the impacts on you and me in our day-to-day lives going forward?
Mark Mullins takes a seasoned look at today’s turmoil and puts it all into context, using his trademark blend of social, economic, political, and policy expertise. By engaging with his audience, they discover together that we are the ones who will ultimately create the New Normal.
The Economy in a Thousand Seconds or Less
Let’s face it, economics is really complicated and economists are pretty boring.
It is admittedly hard to put together the actions and intent of 7+ billion people, several hundred million companies, hundreds of national and regional governments, 70-odd major central banks, and one really angry coronavirus.
Add to that financial markets, NGOs, protest groups, banks, politicians, the role of the media, and on and on and on. It’s no wonder that no one can precisely forecast the future.
Mark Mullins will make the attempt, however, in a concise and entertaining presentation of how the economy really works.
He focuses on the business cycle, public policies, financial markets, and economic actors to create a picture of a dynamic system in action. Not to be missed and guaranteed to come in under a thousand seconds of your time (plus plenty of audience discussion).
