Before I get into today’s letter, a quick note to MoneyWeek subscribers. We’re working feverishly to restore access to the website. The site has been under a sustained denial-of-service attack for nearly a week now. Every time we block an IP address from which the attack is coming, a new one pops up.
Our website host and our technical team are on the case though. Someday this war’s gonna end. My apologies in the meantime. And please note if you’re a digital-only subscriber, we’re arranged an alternate site where you can read or download this week’s magazine. Instructions on how to do so were emailed earlier today.
It’s the first time in 11 years we’ve had a major disruption to the website. Unfortunately, I get the feeling that random (or deliberate) cyber-attacks like this will get more frequent. Businesses, government, households – we’re all free game in this dark web war.
Why aren’t the markets falling?
Speaking of war, I was asked by a team of analysts here in Florida why the markets aren’t falling more. The world looks and feels more dangerous. Yet stocks and investors seem immune to the rising geopolitical risks.
