As an attorney, I was trained to follow the evidence and to only come to conclusions that were warranted by the facts and, right now 4 patterns are developing that also happened just prior to the great financial crisis of 2008 and, as such, provide strong evidence that a deflationary financial collapse is right around the corner.
The above comments, and those below, have been edited by munKNEE.com (Your Key to Making Money!) for the sake of clarity  and brevity (…) to provide a fast and easy read and have been excerpted from an article* by Michael Snyder (theeconomiccollapseblog.com) originally entitled 4 Things That Are Happening Today That Indicate That A Deflationary Financial Collapse Is Imminent which can be read in its entirety HERE.
The response by national governments and global central banks to this horrific financial crisis will cause tremendous inflation down the road, but that comes later. What comes first is a crisis that will initially look a lot like 2008, but will ultimately prove to be much worse.
The following are 4 things that are happening right now that indicate that a deflationary financial collapse is imminent (go HERE for details):
- Commodities are crashing
- Oil is crashing
- Gold is crashing
- The U.S. Dollar Index is surging
If a 2008-style financial crisis was imminent, the above are the kinds of things that we would expect to see happen.
The above are not the only signs that are pointing to big problems in our immediate future:
- the last time there was a major stock market crash in China, it came just before the great U.S. stock market crash in the fall of 2008. This is something that I covered in my previous article entitled “Guess What Happened The Last Time The Chinese Stock Market Crashed Like This?”
Most people do not see it because they do not want to see it. They are far more concerned with making themselves happy than they are about pursuing the truth.
Even though the signs are obvious, most people will never see what is coming in advance. I hope that does not happen to you.

This isn’t the time to listen to those leading politicians, economists and pundits who say we’re not in a bubble and we’re finally seeing a sustainable recovery. We’re not. Central banks can’t keep this bubble going forever… [Instead,] you need to prepare for another across-the-board bubble burst and the deepest downturn since the Great Depression, with deflation, not inflation, and this time, in spite of what others such as Jeff Clark might tell you, Gold will not be your defense, it will be your downfall.

About a month ago, I warned of an emerging “liquidity squeeze“, and now analysts all over the financial industry are talking about it. Could it be possible that the next great financial crisis is right around the corner?
There are many out there (including myself) that believe that the next major economic downturn is dead ahead. As you will see in this article, a whole bunch of things are happening right now that we would expect to see if a recession was beginning.
Many investors think that we could never have a crash like the melt-down in 2008 but they are wrong. The 2008 Crisis was a stock and investment bank crisis – but it was not THE Crisis. That will happen when the biggest bubble in financial history – the epic Bond bubble – bursts. Let me explain.
Dozens of “analysts are convinced that the U.S. economy is going to hell in a hand basket – and soon. How sound are their analyses of the current economic situation? Will they be proven to be very insightful or nothing less than fear mongers looking for attention? Their views are all here. You be the judge.
