The video below is an example.

“The biggest change in higher education that’s been lost on, as well as destroyed by these institutions of higher learning, is the following: The prior signpost all businesses used to hire qualified people was: College educated and/or Ivy League graduate. Today, that signpost is now sporting a highly visible, illuminated warning sign, flashing: College educated and/or Ivy League graduate. Proceed with extreme caution, untold dangers ahead. Seek alternate routes.” -Mark St.Cyr

“Regardless of what is going on in the world that is clouding the mind of the populace and news media. The people that are reliant on getting their paychecks (aka Wall Street) are single minded, laser focused, fully acute to do what ever it takes to push whatever little gas is left in any tank to make the best possible run available to end said month at the best place possible, using any and every tool available to accomplish that single objective. For if it can be done – it will be done – because their paychecks depend on it.” -Mark St.Cyr

“Here’s the issue with MMT (Modern Monetary Theory) that is apparent to anyone with a modicum of business acumen as opposed to the entirety of students, politicians and corporate ideology that seems to be enshrining the possibility for such lunacy. Ready? The moment an outside source or vendor decides they no longer recognize the value of your currency in the valuation you attribute to it – it’s over. Welcome to the Zimbabweification process. In other words: The moment you need one item outside of the national borders of the issuing currency – it’s over – because if they, the counter party, decides they want Zimbabwe currency rather than yours? Yours just became worth less than Zimbabwe’s.” -Mark St.Cyr

“I am not a financial analyst or anything even close. I watch and comment on the machinations of the “markets” only in regard to what it may mean to the bigger picture of business because, we’re all interconnected far more tightly to ‘Wall Street’ than most dare contemplate. Understanding where we all are in relation to the ups-and-downs is more a kin to knowing if you’re going to be dealing with a scattered shower, or Cat-5 Hurricane regarding the business climate. It’s an imperative aspect and facet for anyone taking their business or, business in general, seriously.” -Mark St.Cyr

“If one does not continually exercise a robust introspection of one’s own claims of ‘knowing’ a certain topic or personality, with not just a willingness, rather, an eagerness to jettison part if not all prior assumptions if one is found incorrect – there is no personal growth.” -Mark St.Cyr

“What most don’t fully appreciate, let alone truly understand, is that when it comes to business, self improvement, goal setting, dealing with other people, new ideas, news, politics and more. Nothing has really changed except for the man-made tools to communicate them. Other than that – people are still dealing with the same inner struggles, political viewpoints, business challenges and more that we’ve all been facing for millenniums. The old phrase ‘There’s nothing new under the sun.’ is far more relative today as to understand just where one is and the challenges they need to overcome rather, than some mindset or viewpoint that is causing them indecision under the guise of ‘This time it’s different. For, it is not. The only thing ‘different’ today than 5000 years ago, is one’s personal perspective as to why something matters or not. Period.” -Mark St.Cyr

“When there’s no fundamental reason to answer why a stock price is propelling ever higher. The only logical conclusion is that there’s now far more probabilities why it can come crashing down.” -Mark St.Cyr

“The relentlessness surge to ever higher heights across all major stock indexes (aka ‘markets’) over the last 18 months (e.g., 2020-2021) has demonstrated, unequivocally just how untethered they are to anything once known as ‘fundamentals.’ What appears even more offensive, is the complete repudiation to anyone, including myself, as to try and apply any sanity for any logical postulations. In other words, trying to access these “markets” has morphed into nothing more than inept attempts of applying logical conclusions to illogical nonsense, and will continue to do so until it all ends in tears as history has always shown. QE (quantative easing) has made a mockery of us all. -Mark St.Cyr

“What far too many business people don’t understand in regards to company culture, is the following: If you do not have true shared values for the enterprise, then all discussions and remedies will be superficial at best. The reason for this, is there will be no true shared value to endure the hardships or possible sacrifices for either in order to accomplish an end goal. This is why committees and teams are vastly different animals. One committee can win against another, regardless if its good for the team. A team will suffer all hardships or loss if its for the good of the team as to win. However, most think their working on a team when they’re really working for a committee, and vice versa. This is why most things fail.” -Mark St.Cyr

“What’s at issue for many of these these so-called “social platforms” or what some call “Big Tech” is that the workers now run the company – not management nor, the CEO. What I base this on is: Every-time you see or hear one of the heads’ for these firms come out and say how they will ‘fix’ something in regards to a practice, that is obviously antithetical to its business, such as its staff willy-nilly jettisoning content, regardless of the monetary significance to its own survival. What happens? The CEO has to come out days later and basically do a ‘hostage tape’ styled public reversal saying, ‘They were wrong.’ Why? The staff said ‘Do it, or else!’ This is what central bank interventionism is fueling. Because business and bottom line considerations don’t matter when Wall Street buys and buys regardless of bottom-line considerations. But just like everything, nothing lasts forever. And this entire set of workers are going to be in for a rude surprise the day Wall Street either doesn’t buy, regardless. Or worse, can’t.” -Mark St.Cyr

“It is precisely these types of circumstances that create the greatest opportunities. However, as that other saying goes, Be careful what you wish for! Because the circumstance to deliver what you desire might just be the circumstance that’ll try one’s soul.” -Mark St.Cyr

It has become obvious to me that the role of Ivy League based business forecasting and insight today is to make fundamental business decisions based via astrological signalling look respectable in comparison.” ~Mark St.Cyr

“There’s an old adage on Wall Street that goes something like this: ‘The markets can remain crazy far longer than one can remain solvent.’ However today, with central banks doing what was once unimaginable, there’s been a new addition to it and goes something like this: ‘$90 Trillion dollars of globally synchronized central bank money printing will enable the fantastical fantasy of money for nothing to be believed far longer than prudent perspectives can keep their sanity.'” -Mark St.Cyr

“The inherent issue of any ruse pertaining to business practices or life for that matter is not the ruse itself per se, but rather, the ability of the onlooker to discern whether it is an actual ruse – or it is not. For it is there the true advantages lay in deploying tactics and strategies to counter, just as well as – to not.” -Mark St.Cyr

“It is only when you truly understand what you need to know can you fully begin to know it.” ~Mark St.Cyr

“From a pragmatic perspective when it comes to prudence regarding markets: Central Bank interventionism has pretty much nullified every once useful metric for calculation into the dust-heap of comparable analysis history. That’s the causation affect of what $90 Trillion dollars of globally synchronized central bank money printing has done. i.e., It enables the fantastical fantasy of “money for nothing” to be believed far longer than prudent perspectives can keep their sanity. Let alone their enterprise.” -Mark St.Cyr

“I always ‘Think Big’ – but I dream even bigger!” -Mark St.Cyr

“One of the most damning ideas to capitalism over the last decade can be seen in real-time as corporate leaders who used to argue that competing against GSE’s (government sponsored entities) was something totally anathema to free-markets and would rail against these entities with calls they need to be curtailed, if not outright banned. That idea is all but dead and buried. Because today, we now have a “new and improved” version known as FSE’s (Fed sponsored equities). This newest perversion is something that is currently hailed as a “brilliant use of monetary policy.” What adds insult-to-injury? It is now replete with its own band, bandwagon and cheering section made up of those very same corporate leaders whom prior railed against such a notion. It’s not only appalling, it should be seen as downright disgusting to any true self-identifying capitalist.” -Mark St.Cyr

“People mistakenly assume that the more people employed within a company, the more diverse the setting will be for idea creation; risk taking; and first mover advantages. What they’ll come to realize if they truly look, it will be far more monolithic in thought; far more risk averse to the point of timid; and far too willing to remain in dwindling markets with ever-reduced profits till they finally go out of business.” -Mark St.Cyr

“When it comes to productivity: If you notice your washing machine becoming envious from all the “spin” it hears when the mainstream business/financial media TV is on. You’ll be far more productive if you put down the remote – and pick up the hamper. Not to mention, less stressed.” -Mark St.Cyr

“In business how you fix problems can also affect how others fix their image of your business, here’s an example: When it comes to fixing problems the proverbial “patch” method does work, sometimes with great efficacy. The real problem manifests when this solution going forward is not just the go-to preference, but the only one. Using a parking lot as an example, it’s perfectly fine to patch a problem area, however, if all you do is patch every-time what ends up happening, more often than not, is you end up spending more over time than fixing the original problem properly to begin with. But what’s worse is that your people, as well as current and potential customers, look at your lot and wonder, ‘Maybe this place isn’t as stable as we think, because it sure looks like they can’t even afford to pave their own parking lot.”‘ -Mark St.Cyr

“If you don’t think social media is dead. Then please explain away why Mark Zuckerberg is now pivoting into cryptos rather, than fixing what is suppose to be the embodiment of social dominance? I always need a good laugh.” -Mark St.Cyr

“It’s an oversimplification, but true nonetheless: Most who’ve lived through the slings and arrows to tell, work, or create another business will tell you, without pause – It’s all about understanding people, first. Understanding your business, comes second. Get the first right – the second falls into place much easier. Get the second right and not the first? The business doesn’t stand a chance to stay in business.” -Mark St.Cyr

“If you understand the people dynamic first, you’ll understand the business dynamic better. Reverse the order – and you’ll sooner be out-of-business, than in one.” -Mark St.Cyr

“There’s a difference between right and wrong that most are oblivious and fall prey to far worse perils when being ‘wrong’ rather than when being ‘right’ was the correct viewpoint. I argue it this way: When your assumptions are being proven as “right” but for all the wrong reasons, there’s inherit danger in this because you tend not to question your assumptions for clarity or proof. However, when you’re being proven “wrong” but for all the right reasons? You are forced to defend your assumptions and viewpoint continuously, always questioning, always seeking real truth. Inherent in this footing, you tend not to kid yourself and is painful to do so. An example of this would be someone thinking they’re investments prowess to invest with a firm claiming outlandish returns was a smart decision because of the dividend checks the received over the course of a few months. They don’t ask deeper questions, just assume, their decision was ‘right’ compared to others warning they’re wrong – only to find out that the right question to have asked in the beginning and continually was “Is it a Ponzi scheme or not?’ then finding out in the affirmative all too late.” -Mark St.Cyr

When it comes to either seeking wisdom or gaining advice: If you can’t understand it, apply it, or make any sense of it? It’s useless. Period. No matter who’s touting it.” -Mark St.Cyr

“If you dare print any currency note, then try to buy an asset, you would be immediately arrested and thrown in jail for a little thing called counterfeiting. When a central bank does the same they are rewarded with both keeping said assets and publicly defended with accolades for doing so under the guise of “prudent monetary policy.” -Mark St.Cyr

“The problem with being too early is you appear wrong for all the wrong reasons and many will argue that you’re just plain wrong. The flip side of that is when all the reasons that you were early in calling suddenly arrive, all the people who were taking credit for being so smart prior suddenly appear not to be so.” -Mark St.Cyr

“It’s not about the questions you ask yourself – It’s about the answers you believe are true.” –Mark St.Cyr
