The Grip Tightens

Vaccine Race
The Irish Problem
My Economic Takeaway
An Invisible Bright Future and Vaccinations

This is part two of my 2021 forecast series. I began last week (you can read it here) discussing a three-handed alien race envisioned by science fiction writers Jerry Pournelle and Larry Niven. They had two regular hands and a third “gripping hand,” which though less dexterous, was far stronger. My analogy was that the COVID-19 vaccine has us in the Gripping Hand. Any forecast for 2021 must first consider this decidedly “known unknown.”

Today we’ll begin by looking at new virus developments, some of which are good, some very good, and some frightening. We (the entire world) are in a very tight race with dire consequences if we lose.

There’s a lot to cover, but before we jump in, a brief but important message. Since some of you missed the chance to join me in our most exclusive Mauldin Economics service in December, my partners and I agreed to give you another 72 hours to join the Alpha Society.

As a member, you’ll get lifetime access to all our premium services—including those we launch in the future—and deep discounts on our specialty products. The savings are enormous... and if you already subscribe to one or more of our services, you’ll save even more.

But the best part is you’ll be among like-minded investors. Being in my inner circle includes you in interactive events and connects you with other Alpha Society members and the Mauldin Economics editors, including myself. These networking opportunities will be even more important as the 2020s progress.

This offer ends at midnight Sunday, January 17—so I hope you take this last chance to join me and the other Alpha Society members.
