Today, I’d like to alert you to a few important changes we’re making to your Free Agora Financial subscriptions.
The first, and most immediate change you’ll notice is: you will not receive another one of your Free subscriptions until a specific time on Thursday, October 4, 2012.
This short interlude is the most notable of many improvements…
For over a decade, it’s been the mission of our flagship e-letter, The Daily Reckoning, to prepare you for the end of the “fiat currency” era… and the death of government financing by perpetual debt.
Along the way, we launched additional services to keep you abreast of developments in the financial markets and the economy at large. We’ve kept you ahead of the curve on emerging markets, new technologies… and special opportunities you can’t read anywhere else.
The program has worked fabulously and it’s been quite a ride.
Now in 2012, the Federal Reserve has launched indefinite “quantitative easing”… and the national debt tops an unsustainable $16 trillion. We believe we’re approaching the endgame.
Over the past few months, we have put together a plan to help you prepare for the approaching storm. And perhaps more importantly, help you position your money to take advantage of opportunities that are sure to unfold.
Today, I am revealing that plan to you. To begin with, we’re consolidating all our letters under the Daily Reckoning banner. Then, starting Thursday, you can expect to receive your emails to arrive at a consistent hour every day:
We weighed the decision of not publishing your free eletters over the next two days seriously. But – as I hope you’ll agree – the long term benefit and reliability of our new publishing schedule will help you read, digest and benefit from your favorite writers will outweigh this minor annoyance.
Let me tell you about a few other important changes you’ll find taking place at the Daily Reckoning. We’re expanding our stable of contributors. Along with familiar names, you’ll meet new faces bringing you fresh perspectives — keeping you abreast of fast-moving changes in the markets.
We’re also introducing a few new features to the Daily Reckoning site that will make access to your favorite content easier and your user experience more enjoyable:

I look forward to hearing from you.
Thanks for reading!

P.S. Over the coming weeks I hope to get your feedback on how these changes have improved your DR experience. But just so you know, we have more in store for you.
In the next month we will revive an ‘ole favorite, the Daily Reckoning’s Rude Awakening. Long time readers may remember the early morning and often irreverent, “Rude.” It’s like hot coffee in the face of Wall Street, each morning.
Each issue of the Rude Awakening will spotlight a single investment opportunity from the Agora Financial editors — something the mainstream overlooks.
Then, we’ll launch a brand new free letter Tomorrow in Review. Each day, Tomorrow in Review will deliver tomorrow’s most promising technology breakthroughs, today.
In each issue of Tomorrow in Review, we’ll introduce you to the most lucrative “bleeding edge” tech and biotech advances – the disruptive technologies that will shape your world tomorrow.
As soon as these two new letters are ready for launch, we’ll let you know. Or bookmark the improving and evolving Daily Reckoning website for updates.

I think the changes are worthwhile, but my only complaint is that there is no app for Android. I would venture to guess that many of your subscribers are android tabletphone users so if you might keep us in mind as well.
Hi Addison, Looking forward to the changes and how it will improve both content and deliverability. Thanks again for all your hard work and the insights you share!
Looking for to Thursday, 10/04 and the new changes. Keep up the good work. One of the few sites worth reading from end to end!
Though it is not mentioned, but knowing where you are, I take that all those times of publishing refer to the U.S. Eastern Time.
I am a fan since ’99. Glad to see you consolidate because there are too many of you and it becomes onfusing at times. Keep on trucking!
You are all fatntastic and I love all your newsletters, they are worth a million bucks! Thanks heaps
I saincerely hope your new video clips are not the rambling, far-too-long verbals that have passed for “videos” heretofore. Make them plain, short, and truly visual. Otherwise, go for it!
Sounds fantastic. You guys are getting better and better. Looking forward to the changes.
Don’t know how you manage to make me laugh and cry at the same time sometimes — but you do! Thanks for the changes. Looks great.
I don’t’ understand how the USA borrowed so much money from China, Japan & other countries.
When we as a business wish to purchase goods, we provide an irrevocable letter of trust or payment for these goods prior to shipping. As soon as the item ships our account has these funds removed and nothing is owed.
So who borrowed the moneys and for what purposes?
Autos? Walmart? Electronics? Food? etc.
Whiz kids with words; betcha you can’t call the next turn down…?/
AMEN! I agree with Teddy.
You are correct.
Thanks Doris, we’re glad you like the changes!
Thanks for your input, we’re keeping the new videos down to 2 or 3 minutes each and as easy to understand as possible.
We appreciate your loyalty and hope you like the new consolidated format. As always, please let us know if you have any questions or suggestions.
Thanks for reading!
I’ve enjoyed your newsletter for quite some time now. This ‘new’ thing you’re doing is NOT much of an improvement. I’m seeing MUCH more selling than before and MUCH less newsletter. Loose this extraneous ‘crap’ or you’re going to loose me!
When you've got a room full of 200 oil insiders scratching their heads at current high prices, something's gotta give.
For most investors, it’s weird to think of stocks as their go-to investing option.
The petropoly has bills to pay and setting the price of oil was a simple way to balance their budgets.
Investors don’t seem to care that what's propping up their investments is what will ultimately destroy them: government monetary policy.
For the next decade the energy revolution will be likely confined to the US, displaying the robustness of American entrepreneurship.
Why the Sage of Baltimore’s commentary persists through America’s changing times.
After attending Platt’s oil conference in London I want to relay two important themes you need to know.
