Dear Mum…do you remember…?

This is actually “Did you see the film The Big Short: Part Two?”

Dear Mum,

You remember when we used to chat over a coffee and get excited about the latest big thing I was working on?

Do you remember when we were talking about how some stuff made me angry – and you can create change when you are in that state (my Dad used that one all the time in his campaigns, didn’t he?) Then there were the things that got me all excited – you can create change in that state of mind too. But it was when I got excited and angry about some things that everything came together on my projects…Excited Angry is where I am right now. 

That book! 

Oh My Gosh…that research. What was it, well over two years? Travelling, experiencing, reading, mapping it…then the writing bit. More importantly ripping it up. Starting again. More research. How did I – given I use what happens to me most days to form what I am going to do next – after all that editing and ripping up and editing again, then hating it and then loving it (but not that much loving), get to the point of holding a printed and bound manuscript that looked something like finished, to be able to send out for people to read? Tens of thousands of words that actually all joined up…in chapters! I mean like a real book…how did Christopher James Pomfret get to that point? 

My book came back into my life this week…with the power of a sledgehammer it hit me right over the head.

This will make you smile when I remind you about “The Myth of Smith”:


This is what you call a screenshot. It is a scene from a movie someone told me to go and watch last week. As soon as I saw this my mind flipped right back to the book. The film is called “The Big Short”, it not only got me even more Excited Angry about what I am doing right now, but it also made my book relevant.

Ten years…Mum, it is ten years since I wrote the book!

We both know that I did not write down these words “the world’s financial markets will go into meltdown inside the next 12 months”. But you will remember I built the book around a 231 year old mistake that I believed the entire philosophy of economics had been founded on: there was a big chapter called “The Myth of Smith”. If I remind you I used, as one of a myriad of inspirations, that amazing book called Ishmael by Daniel Quinn, you might remember Quinn explains “the law of things” and how humanity has been served very well, in general, by using a “trial and error” system – the insights from success and failure if you like – and used the example of building the first flying machines.

I used his idea to explain that the economy was built like a flying machine had been back then. After early failures that nose dived just before or just after take off we got to something that appeared air-worthy. You see once past the take off bit the plane – like the economy – appears to be flying. The flight felt good, defying gravity and many other “laws of things” because, apparently, the design was so good. The pilots, enjoying the view, allowed complacency to set in. The first sign of a flaw in the design was only when the first bumps came along. No problem. The pedals that the designer had thoughtfully built-in came in really handy. Pedal power saw the first bumps off. But things got a tad worse and the pedalling got more and more intense at certain points.

The passengers, loving the flight, had no idea that there was any pedalling going on at all. They remained in complete ignorance of even the need for pedalling – I mean they were sold that this was a perfect flying machine, right? The first hint of trouble for them was when suddenly those flying this plane could no longer pedal any faster and the plane suddenly began to lose momentum. I could talk you through what happens next, but it unwinds really quickly from the point of losing momentum. The moment the passengers understand what was occurring was too late for them. Ironically, they had their own button that says: “Park your Position”, however, none of them thought to check what that meant. You see the passengers were “living the life”: busy watching the movies, spending huge amounts on the shiny toys kindly brought to their seats on a trolley and gorging on the refreshments.

Mum let me press pause there and get back to the film…and this critical point:


This is why this film has become almost an obsession for me in the last week. Mum the film explains NOT just what happened in 2008 – yes one year after I wrote my book – but it depicts the stories of three different sets of people that not only saw it coming, they actually knew what would be the catalyst. Well, just one man did and the other two sets of people – none of whom knew of each other until some time after what happened in 2008 – found out via someone else of both the seismic situation that was developing and the opportunity it presented to them.

I have watched this film awe-struck. It has given me peace of mind, to a certain extent. I now realise I cannot judge anyone for not getting what I was saying. You see this man was telling people about what was happening and in a way that meant they could make a huge amount of money…and they still didn’t listen!


Very, very interestingly he was not the man that first worked out the way in which the whole thing was going to unwind.  He found out about it when many people were ridiculing those that had seen it…in other words he took a look from a different angle! He did his research. He was right to! He then made it his mission to take advantage of it, but no matter how many people he told, the majority of them then ridiculed him. But he was protected. He could not fail to make a lot of money – for which he made no apology – and, to be fair, he did his best to tell lots of other people. But hubris and complacency – and probably a big chunk of stupidity – meant that most called him by the name of “Chicken Little”: a cartoon character who saw that his fellow citizens were facing certain doom and rushed around screaming “the sky is falling…the sky is falling”: he too was met with ridicule. Hollywood, fiction and fantasy does seem to have an incredible bearing on reality sometimes!

Let’s recap…whilst I was doing my research – let alone the actual writing – these incredible people saw what was about to happen and how it would happen. As you can imagine it was rather more complex than my synopsis, but the result was the entire economy went into chaos and the Global Monetary System did come very close to total meltdown. Yes we saw these types of queues outside every Northern Rock branch in the UK:

northern rock run

The first run on a UK bank since about 20 years before Grandpa was born and he arrived in 1899! But this could have been the view the entire world over.

How did this extraordinary situation occur and panic set in? Pretty simple really: hubris, greed and a whole bunch of other factors came together and, guess what, no matter how hard the pilots pedalled…the inevitable happened.

What kind of other factors? 

When good people do things that don’t seem to be too bad that actually go on to turn into truly evil! Those kind of other factors. This character is exactly that as she represents what are supposedly independent agencies, that, it turns out, the banks able to put pressure on to turn a blind eye to unethical practices ignoring the consequences:

s&p lady

Interesting that she wears these glasses and complains of an issue with her sight. And her excuse for bowing to the pressure:

not our fault 1not our fault

Oh Mum, when I see those words, you of all people know how they make me feel: one of my core themes was and remains “Nothing has to be the way it is, simply because that’s the way it is”! 

The economy did lose momentum…just like our perfect flight from before…and panic set in as the ground was hurtling towards EVERYONE. The button that was there to press – that offered a protected position – was now “unavailable”. Those that were fast asleep missed the whole shebang and woke up just in time to see their own demise: their life in tatters.

People said: “that is the way of things…” 

Mum those words disgust me to my core…I mean disgust me…and they make me an awful lot of Angry to go with my Excited.

Remember, Daniel Quinn argued that “trial and error isn’t a bad way to build an aircraft” and then he added in what I believe is a prophetic way: “but it can be a disastrous way to build a civilization”. 

For 231 years we had built our “civilisation” (oh for want of a word that is so, so much better) on a mistake, because we built our economy on a mistake. People will throw their hands up and say: “why does everything have to be about the economy?” Probably, I would have agreed over a decade ago, until I realised that everything is about the economy, and there is zero doubt that:

“trial and error is a disastrous way to build an economy”.


Because we didn’t learn from a single, damn one of the errors…we simply kept pedalling, then hitting the ground, then getting back up there and pedalling all over again. Never learning from the last time…because the powers that be peddle the same old crap! 

Need some proof?  We are right back there again – within ten years! It is now a 241 year old mistake…did I say mistake…economic catastrophe. CDOs unwound to produce the last meltdown…it seems here we go again:

cdo reinvented

Mum, this is my moment…I actually do know how to show masses of people out of this before it happens…all they have to do is listen. Ah yes…that is a slight problem of course.

And finally for now…on a truly personal note the one man that saw what was happening before anyone else is called Michael Burry. He did so because he never looked at anything the same way others do…he can’t! You see I since read an article that says he – like your Great Grandboys – has a special gift that enables him to see from another world into ours…he has a form of autism and with it an extremely special gift. 

Oh by the way…guess who they are already calling Chicken Little?


Did you see the film “The Big Short”: part one!

When real life becomes Hollywood & then Hollywood becomes real life…

Below is an excerpt  from the amazing website King News and it finishes with: “Andrew Maguire is currently advising many other legal firms…” which is, I am certain, correct. However, what they do not know is that he is also working with me!

Yes, I am working with this legend, possibly the most courageous torch bearer for ethics in the history of the Global Monetary System, and what we are working is not big…it makes big look like a tiny dot!

Andrew Maguire doesn’t work on small stuff! 

Check this link out that leads to a recording of what Andrew knows is coming next for the world’s economy…it is compelling…yes complex…but truly compelling:

This is where Hollywood is becoming reality. I will come to that below, but first this is how King News describe my friend:

Andrew Maguire: Whistleblower, Independent London Metals Trader & Analyst –Andrew has 35 years trading experience, both as an institutional and independent trader. He is an accomplished veteran of the markets. In 2010 Andrew Maguire went public in an exclusive King World News interview and disclosed his notification to the United States regulators at the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) of fraud being committed and price manipulation in the international gold and silver markets. This put him at the center of a storm for exposing what could be the largest fraud in history involving countries, banks and government leaders.

Andrew Maguire, Independent London Metals Trader and Analyst, internationally renowned for his unique ability to read the precious metals market with his specialist knowledge and experience gained over 35 years trading in financial and commodity markets is the expert in these highly complex and competitive fields.

In 2009, Andrew decided to go public and provided evidence to the United States regulators relating to fraud and price manipulation that was being committed globally in the international gold and silver markets. This put him at the epicentre of a storm for exposing what could be the largest fraud in history involving countries, banks and government leaders, which is still an on going investigation and does not deter him in his determination to see fair play for all on the trading fields.

Andrew is currently advising many other legal firms…

As I said, actually, right now Andrew Maguire is advising a team of extraordinary people – with which I am honoured to be associated with –  to transform a truly corrupt and heinous part of the way our money is controlled…


…and here’s the Hollywood connection. “The Big Short” is based on the true story of the Sub-prime mortgage scandal…the entire story is literally being reenacted once again to correct a terrible monetary fraud. This is a Part Two that I am going to really enjoy writing. Till then…


Buying Bitcoin…for those that have asked me about the step-by-step

Bitcoin, Ethereum plummet in value as the whole market contracts by over 20%….warning: Go Slow!

When you get lots of messages saying this kind of thing:   “I see Bitcoin but have no idea how to get one, I see gold shooting up in price, I feel the criminality of government monetarily, over to you the Pomfret”…and in addition to being humbled, it becomes clear it is time to cover this again.
For those that want a step by step…
My suggestions:
  • go at this steady and slow – there’s no rush
  • open two different wallets – see links below
  • go through the Know Your Customer (KYC) verification and if at any stage you don’t understand anything just ask – get used to it
  • buy Bitcoin first and get a feel for how and what you are doing – you can watch the price charts on the platforms on which you are opening the wallets
  • do not rush into investing a large amount – see my suggestion and what I did below
  • you can download the apps from each platform or use their webpages through your browser
  • watch what is about to unfold in the market over the next few weeks…I promise you this is going to be a very exciting ride!
As you have read I have done my weeks of research – and got my hands dirty – and this is my suggested two step process for starters:
  • Go through this link and open your Coinbase wallet. The verification took me 24 hours. I then bought $100 of Bitcoin. This meant that the person that I got the referral link from got $10 of Bitcoin as a referrers fee and I got a $10 of Bitcoin joining bonus. If you do the same we both get the same. A 10% uplift on the initial investment simply seemed like a no-brainer…it is! 
  • I then went through the process of opening this Bitwala wallet, because this is the one I got my debit card through…now that was a game changer:
If you get to that point you will be in front of more than 99% of the population and ready to go anywhere and in any direction with what is coming next in the digital world!
Welcome to the disruptive minority. 

But Why Would I Buy Now…the Market is Way Down?

Yes the two different graphs do nail that point!
But we are talking $100 maximum right now…and better now than last week surely?

Chicken Little & Janet Yellen – The Chair of The Federal Reserve – what do they have in common…?

This is not my first Chicken Little moment…”The Sky is Falling…The Sky is Falling”…again!

Today’s blog is going to be a lot of fun…what do they have in common?

My 2017 version of being Chicken Little is actually Phase 2. Ten years ago, I wrote a book about the control corporations have over us and where they were driving the economy at that time.

As those of you who have been following me for some time will know, I draw my sources of inspiration from a very broad church. In 2007, it was Daniel Quinn and his remarkable book “Ishmael” . Within the rather unusual dialogue between a man and a gorilla, he gives us the theory of “the law of things“. He describes how the human race has developed often by using successes and failures where appropriate, for example he says that “trial and error isn’t a bad way to build an aircraft”.  Fair enough, surely? However, he continues with a prophetic statement “but it can be a disastrous way to learn how to build a civilisation”. OhMyGosh was there ever a truer statement?

Right now Janet Yellen is guilty of running the economy on exactly the same basis as those courageous and often crazy pioneers of flight. They would build their flying machines and hurtle themselves off things or over things to get airborne. You have seen the pictures! Now apart from those utterly disastrous ones that actually collapsed like a cardboard box at take-off, every single one of those early machines was apparently flying for a period of time. That is until suddenly they were hurtling towards the ground and no longer flying, but heading them and their crew into a lot of pain at best, death at worst. Trial and error for sure, but our skies all over the world are testimony that it finally worked!

Even to the majority the world economy may seem like it is flying along very nicely, the signs are all there that it is actually already hurtling towards the ground – truly it stands on the precipice of the next huge correction. How could we possibly have got here so soon again? I said Janet Yellen was “guilty” when I likened her to the flying machine men and women. Perfect word. My book in 2007 was based around the concept that the world economy, exactly like civilisation, was a terrible thing to try and run by trial and error. Three weeks ago, in London, she stood before the world’s media and stated: “there won’t be another financial crisis in our lifetime”! 

Whilst this is a truly extraordinary and irresponsible statement, it is a complete insight into the truth that the Federal Reserve are running the economy by trial and error: never learning from the mistakes. To get an “experts” view of that then please watch this video (they talk about this very thing at minute 11:15 ) … 

What do they have in common? Chicken Little is make believe and urges us to consider the world view. Janet Yellen urges us to ignore the world view and then comes up with something that can only be called make believe. Polar opposites yes, but two real cartoon characters.

Oh by the way…when I had my Chicken Little phase one, I was ignored by pretty much everyone. I am not suggesting I predicted the melt down quite so quickly from there, but you remember what began in 2008, right?

I have a feeling rather more people will take notice this time! 

Mediocrity or Complacency…which one is going to run you down…? Because you are mired in one or the other…!

Question: the Global Monetary System gets to the point of a reset that will impact everything…which of the authorities that you allow to control your life is going to drop you a brief note to warn you to protect yourself…?

You can create change if you are angry…
You can create change if you are excited…
Imagine what you can do if you are excited angry…?

(watch out, it may end up looking like this…)

I know stuff you don’t know. Including the answer at the top: none of them, of course.

What else do I know…? I know that either mediocrity or complacency is going to run you down.

If you want to debate me (please do), challenge me (please, please do) or follow me (your best chance to get out of this protected)…please message me here:

If you want to know why I am ranting – excited angry – on my stage on a sunny Sunday morning then watch this Pomfret YouTube video:

I am funnelling you into Mediocrity or Complacency – much to your chagrin – and you haven’t clicked on that link? Then I was right…! 

Think about this…I ask will any authorities that run your life write to you and warn you that the Global Monetary System is about to go through a life changing reset? Will they give you that window of opportunity to protect yourself and your family in any tiny way possible that could be your lifeline, or will they be all consumed looking out for their own protection and lifelines?

Why would they warn you?  Most won’t have a clue – especially your bank – and the rest have too much to lose to empower you with that information.

“Christopher you are looking and sounding like you have crossed the boundary of lunacy…”  If that is your response then you are definitely going to be run down by one of them: mediocrity or complacency. This has happened three times on a GLOBAL SCALE since 1913 – we have such short memories, and it has happened to individual countries many times in the last couple of decades…Venezuela right now!  History is right there for you to do your own research. Will you find letters written to the citizens from any authority telling them how to protect and save themselves? Look hard…prove me wrong.

Do you think you will always find evidence of the excited angry lunatics…what do you think?   

Is there a third way?  Of course, if you are not in mediocrity or complacency…fabulous, then you are one of the enlightened ones…let’s plan right now!  Oh, and please share the heck out of this blog…be the authority in someone’s life that does care enough to say “If Not Now, Then When”…
