The euro may implode at any moment. The euro zone is deep in recession. The slow-motion debt crisis there trundles on. We still don’t know what will trigger a full-scale meltdown. All we know is that there’s now a good chance it will happen.

It’s the capital of a country that does macho well, as anyone who has ever had a run-in with a gaucho or a milonguero (the term for the rough-cut male dancers who populate the city tango halls) will tell you. And it still has plenty to offer the unreconstructed male.

You won’t read about it in the mainstream media. But we are approaching what could be one of the greatest buying opportunities of a generation—in European stocks. This may sound strange at ﬁrst. Even deluded. Economies in the euro zone are tanking, along with stock-market prices.
The world’s consumer power base is shifting. The “rest” are playing catch-up to the “West” right before our eyes. Most investors don’t see this. They are blinded by the doom and gloom surrounding the financial crisis, the debt ceiling, and the gridlock in Washington.

Most of the time, the talking heads on CNBC churn out nothing but “noise.” The kind of stuff that’s more likely to cloud your investing outlook than make it any clearer.
Brazil is one of the most promising emerging markets, thanks to a combination of huge natural resources reserves and a fast-growing consumer economy.
But what makes Brazil different to the other big resource rich emerging market, Russia? And what makes its consumer economy different to that of, say, China? What about claims that its new president is not business friendly enough? And what about the fear of rising inflation?

Find the answers in this report.

I’m in Barcelona, Spain. I’m here to see firsthand what’s going on, as Europe lurches closer to full-on crisis.
I recently had an interesting conversation with a representative of the World Gold Council. We were talking about the role of gold as a strategic asset – how holding gold can help you survive and thrive in the current spate of economic turbulence.
As you know, the last six months haven’t been stellar for the emerging markets. But what you’ve got to understand is that you can’t base your investing decisions on what’s happened in the past. Because the markets don’t care about the past. They care about what will happen in the future.

The trend is up. This may sound odd. After all, a lot of investors are pretty gloomy these days. In America, house prices continue to head south… about 1 in 10 people remain unemployed… and Washington is in disarray over what to do about its spiraling debt problem.
Macio Mello is about as close to a “rock-star geologist” as you can get. In July 2009, his Brazilian oil- and gas-exploration company had a 277 million barrels of oil equivalent (BOE). In February of this year, thanks to Mellos’ expert geological mapping, it had a 6.6 billion BOE.
Heat waves… forest fires… mass migration… disruption to the lives of hundreds of millions of people… global conflict… This is the dire warning of professor Lord Stern of the London School of Economics following the news that greenhouse gas emissions increased by a record amount last year.
