In just a few minutes, our fourth annual Irrational Economic Summit will be underway. Are you ready?
Let’s do this!
To say the crowd is humming with excitement would be an understatement. As I write this, people are filing into the Ballroom Foyer of the PGA National Golf Resort, our “home away from home” for the next three days.
We couldn’t ask for a more beautiful venue to host our conference this year. If I was a golfer, I’d be itching to tee up. In fact, I’ve already heard a few conference guests talking about their plans to walk the fairways before they head home!
Before I get too carried away, let me introduce myself: I’m Jennifer Junggust, Junior Managing Editor at Dent Research. And for the next few days, I’ll be your eyes and ears at IES. I’ll be bringing you on-the-ground information straight from our speakers and Summit attendees. It’ll be like you’re right here with us!
This morning I woke up bright and early to attend a staff breakfast meeting, where our in-house team of experts gathered together to discuss the logistics of our massive itinerary – the calm before the storm, if you will.
Our publisher, Shannon Sands (an incredibly smart force of nature), set the tone with this statement: “This year’s Irrational Economic Summit is going to be our best and biggest event yet… even if it kills us!”
The nervous chuckles that echoed around the room meant we knew she was serious… and we’re ready to make it happen. After all, it’s YOUR wealth and success at stake here. This is all for you. All about you.
The stakes are high. And we’re up for the challenge!
Once we’d gone through the plan one last time, we were off to our stations to get the ball rolling. Between quick cups of coffee, I got the chance to mingle with a few of our editors and really pick their brains about what they’re most looking forward to at this year’s event.
Here’s some of what they told me…
“David Walker is one of my can’t-miss speakers this year,” said Rodney. “As the former Comptroller of the United States, he’s one of the few people who I think has a true understanding of our debt problem, so I’m very interested in hearing what solutions he’d propose to get us on the right path again.”
Charles Sizemore, our resident retirement expert and income guru, echoed Rodney’s thoughts, saying: “I’m looking forward to hearing a little common sense in a world gone mad. I’m particularly looking forward to hearing David Walker speak about the state of America’s finances. “This presidential election – that’s come down to two people who have no business seeking the office – is a distraction from the very real problems facing the nation.”A distraction? That may be putting it mildly.
Harry recently called the power struggle between Trump and Clinton supporters a “dark and ominous cloud devouring everything in its path,” widening the political and social gulf tearing this great country asunder.
In fact, he told me just this morning that the geopolitical unrest circling the presidency is just one of the signs that’s telling him the bubble we’re in is nearing its end. “It makes my new book, The Sale of a Lifetime, even more timely,” he said.
To kick off the Summit, Harry’s first presentation this afternoon will actually be on all of the unique profit opportunities that will be available in the next great crash… but only if you know where to look, as he does.
“I’m really looking forward to that presentation,” Adam told me. “Harry’s very captivating and insightful when he talks – and he’s a real ‘out of the box’ thinker.”
I, too, can’t wait to hear what Harry has to say.
And if you weren’t able to join us this year in person, or register for the LIVE Stream of the event, you don’t have to miss out!
We’re making the conference available to you via our Digital Replay Kit, and we’re throwing in some bonus items too, including a digital copy of Harry’s bestseller, The Sale of a Lifetime, and the audio of six private workshops (Not even attendees, unless they’re Network members, have access to these!).
One thing’s for sure: this year’s conference couldn’t have come at a better time, as Harry said yesterday.
Our 2016 lineup of speakers – including the Honorable David Walker, Dan Mitchell, Chris Gaffney, Raoul Pal, Dr. Lacy Hunt, Andrew Pancholi, and Howard Lindzon, just to name a few – will give you all the insight you need (and then some) to survive and thrive through these next few years.
That’s all I’ve got time to say for now. Rodney’s clipping on the mike, getting ready to kick us off. I’ll be back tomorrow with some juicy details about this afternoon’s sessions!
