In order to gain full access to the articles, videos and other content on our website, you must either be a Client or Member.

Clients are monthly publication subscribers and receive free site access (i.e. free Membership).

Members pay an annual fee to access the site.

Website access does not include access to any research reports or investment monthly publications. However, some articles and videos contain material that is related to our economic and investment research. While we promote our research publications on the website, we do not store any of these publications on the site.

Only register as a Client if you intend to purchase the monthly publication service.1

If you register as a Client and do NOT purchase a monthly publication within 3 days, we reserve the right to delete your account.

If you want email notifications when new articles are posted you can sign up for alerts or as a member (which allows you access to the forum), but do not sign up for both unless you want duplicate email alerts.

In addition to the monthly publication(s) you subscribe to, you will receive:2

  1. Complimentary Membership for the duration of your monthly publication subscription (savings of $599). This provides you will all benefits received by paid Members.

  2. Full access to restricted articles on this site website (all articles dating back to 2008).

  3. Full access to our increasingly popular and constantly expanding Encyclopedia of Bozos, Hacks, Snake Oil Salesmen and Faux Heroes.

    This is a very comprehensive resource that contains hundreds of pages of unique content, detailing the methods and motives of the biggest clowns today who prey on the naive and desperate.

    By studying this resource and keeping up with the updates, you are not likely to ever be fooled again by the tactics used by these characters. This will prevent you from falling victim to their snake oil.

  4. Complimentary access to select videos pertaining to your monthly publication subscription discussing trading guidance, market forecasts and other topics meant to serve as an education tool.

  5. Special discounts on select research publications.

  6. Special discounts on select video presentations.

  7. Complimentary access to select special reports and pre-screened third-party research. It's not about having access to information. It's all about knowing what information is credible and valuable. We screen thousands of documents each year and post only those that we feel are both credible and valuable. These documents are located under the Library menu.

  8. Complimentary access to the Data region of the site (top menu) containing charts, tables and other data we have selected as relevant (not yet launched).3

  9. Top priority email alerts when articles have been published.

We have plans to add even more resources in the future.

1 Note that we do not provide refunds of any kind for any reason. Tiffany's does not give refunds. Wal-Mart does. We are not Wal-Mart. We do not provide cheap goods. We are the best source of investment insight around.

If you pay for site membership and later decide to subscribe to one or more of our monthly publications, you will NOT receive a refund or credit from your membership fees. We cannot be bothered to deal with these issues so please do not ask.

You should not expect to receive several articles per month because each of our articles is 100% UNIQUE, filled with highly insightful and valuable content. Many of these articles require several weeks and sometimes months for research, writing and editing, so you should expect periods when there will be no articles published. If you want daily or weekly articles so you can establish a routine expenditure of wasted time reading generic trash designed to get you to visit websites in order to generate ad revenues, this is not the site for you. There are millions of other sites that will be more than happy to provide you with daily free content, but this content will be worth less than the $0 price tag you pay for it because in the end, you will remain a sheep.

2 These benefits are NOT guaranteed as a part of the subscription to any of our monthly publications. We may at any time decide to discontinue one or all of these benefits without warning. In addition, if for some reason we experience technical problems with the website that compromise access to content, this will not violate the monthly publication subscription terms because the website access is being provided as a complimentary service.

3 You should NOT assume that we will launch this resource at any time during your subscription. Similar to the other benefits listed here, this service is NOT guaranteed to be offered as part of the monthly publication subscription.

In order to gain full access to the articles, videos and other content on our website, you must either be a Client or Member.

Clients are monthly publication subscribers and receive free site access (i.e.. free Membership).

Members pay an annual fee to access the site. Although we list our own ads for research publications on the site, Members do NOT receive access to research publications or monthly publications. This is a separate fee.

Lite Membership Cost (one year) is $399

Premium Membership Cost (one year) is $599

Members receive unrestricted access to all articles published on the site, as well as access to the Member Video Library which contains numerous videos on a variety of topics from global economics and securities analysis to investment education. Some of these videos are from the monthly publications but have been added to the video library at a later time. However, these videos are relevant.

To reiterate, website access does not include access to any research reports or monthly publications. However, some articles and videos contain material that is related to our economic and investment research.

While we promote our research publications on the website, we do not store any of these publications on the site.

NOTE: ALL monthly publication subscribers are designated as Clients and receive complimentary Membership for the duration of their monthly publication subscription.

NOTE: Unless you are a VERY experienced and advanced investor we strongly advise that you sign up for a Membership PRIOR to subscribing to one or more of our investment monthly publications. Doing so will give you a better idea about the uniqueness of Mike Stathis and the need to keep an open mind.

Although Members do NOT receive research (other than some older presentations largely for educational purposes) we feel it is very important for prospective monthly publication subscribers to first devote sufficient time and effort to get to know how Mike thinks. This is very important since he is likely to be unlike anyone you have ever come across.

Keep Your Personal Opinions to Yourself

We publish a variety of content in addition to the investment and economic research. The vast majority of this additional content, while not part of the research subscription, is made available to paid subscribers of our publications for the purpose of helping them better understand how media works, and the need to avoid it.

We operate a professional research firm. Please do not confuse us for an ad-based platform whereby the publishers encourage feedback, as this is a scam designed to pull readers in deeper so that more ad revenues are generated.

If you do not like any of the other content we provide or if you are unable to comprehend the purpose of it, consult friends, family or seek professional assistance, but do not bother us with your issues. We do not operate a blog or provide a feedback system.

Beware of Your Own Pitfalls

If you have confirmational bias based upon delusional ideas from media or other sources, you will have a difficult time interpreting quality research, including our own.

By signing up as a Member1 you will receive:

  1. Full access to restricted articles on this site website (new and old), which exceeds 1000 (as of February 2015).

    So in a sense you are getting access to highly valuable insights that the general population is not receiving.

  2. Full access to our increasingly popular and constantly expanding Encyclopedia of Bozos, Hacks, Snake Oil Salesmen and Faux Heroes.

    This is a very comprehensive resource that contains hundreds of pages of unique content, detailing the methods and motives of the biggest clowns today who prey on the naive and desperate.

    By studying this resource and keeping up with the updates, you are not likely to ever be fooled again by the tactics used by these characters. This will prevent you from falling victim to their snake oil.

  3. Access to select videos provided to monthly publication subscribers (on a delayed basis) discussing trading guidance, market forecasts and other topics meant to serve as an education tool.
