8. America, This Is A Wake-Up Call: Economic Collapse Is Rapidly Approaching

Will most Americans continue to deny the truth until it is far too late? The truth is that the long-term problems that are eating away at the foundations of our economy like cancer…continue to get worse year after year. While these unprecedented levels of government debt and reckless money printing by the Federal Reserve have brought us the relative stability that we enjoy today, most Americans don’t seem too concerned about our long-term problems having faith that our “leaders” will be able to find a way to muddle through whatever challenges are ahead. Hopefully, the 12 economic charts in this article that show that we are in much, much worse shape than we were 5 or 10 years ago serve as a wake-up call. Read More »

9. These 20 Cycle Theories Suggest Stock Markets, Gold & Bonds To Severely Correct

Unsustainable trends can survive much longer than most people anticipate, but they do end when their “time is up” – at the culmination of their time cycles…In an effort to bring clarity in how and when these trends could change direction we analyzed more than 20 different cycles. They almost unanimously point to tectonic shifts in the months and years ahead … starting now. We have been warned. At this point, we have enough confirmation to accept that the gold and silver crash – starting in April of 2013 – was the first shot across the board of what is to come. Read on! Read More »

10. Where Are We In the Current Economic/Market Cycle? These Charts Will Help You Decide

There is a debate on Wall Street between those who believe we have entered into the next “secular bull market” and those who believe that the current market advance is predicated on artificial stimulus and, as such, the “secular bear market” remains intact.

11. Many Economic Cycle Theorists Believe 2015 to 2020 Is Going To Be Pure Hell For the U.S.!

Many mainstream economists want nothing to do with economic cycle theorists, but it should be noted that economic cycle theories have enabled some analysts to correctly predict the timing of recessions, stock market peaks and stock market crashes over the past couple of decades – and there are many economists who believe that the period from 2015 to 2020 is going to turn out to be pure hell for the United States.

12. Cycle Analysis Suggests S&P 500 Has Topped & Will Decline To Major Low In 2016

While the majority is looking at the Megaphone Pattern correction since the 2000 high and is expecting the market to go back to the lower trend line of this pattern and to make new lows, I think that it will not happen. The opinion of the majority can be used as a contrarian indicator. I think that a healthy correction in this new Secular Bull Market could push the Dow Jones to 12500-13500 (end of 2015 – half 2016) followed by a second leg up of this new Secular Bull Market.

13. This Weekend’s Financial Entertainment: A “Rant” On the Reality of the U.S. Economic Situation

The saying, “Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me” suggests that the general populace of America should be very, very ashamed! It is evident that they are prone to being fooled and robbed over and over again as they invest in a fake stock market, are sold over-valued housing and accept scraps of partial employment, food stamps, poverty level social security and poor healthcare from incompetent governance – and then try to escape by using credit and debt to keep up a standard of living without ever acquiring anything of real value.

16. Financial Asset Values Hang In Mid-air Like Wile E. Coyote – Here’s Why

The financial markets are drastically over-capitalizing earnings and over-valuing all asset classes so, as the Fed and its central bank confederates around the world increasingly run out of excuses for extending the radical monetary experiments of the present era, even the gamblers will come to recognize who is really the Wile E Coyote in the piece.

17. How Much Time Before “The 7 Bubbles of America” Start to Burst?

History has shown us that all financial bubbles eventually burst. It is not a question of “if” they will burst.

18. Chilling Words From BIS On Current Global Financial Condition Setting Off Alarm Bells

When Jaime Caruana speaks, people should listen and the fact that he recently warned that the global financial system is currently “more fragile” in many ways than it was just prior to the collapse of Lehman Brothers should set off all sorts of alarm bells.

20. Deflationary Depression Delayed BUT Will Be That Much Worse When It Inevitably Comes

21. Mass Unemployment, Home Foreclosures, Stagnant Wages & Shrinking Retirement Possibly Coming Soon – Here’s Why

The impending emergence of The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse (Debt, Derivatives, Deficits & Dollar) may soon sound the death knell of the entire U.S. economic recovery [we have seen] since early 2009 and eventually and sadly morph into mass Unemployment, Home Foreclosures, Stagnant Wages & Shrinking Retirement.

26. What Will Happen In Coming Collapse? How Will Governments Try to Fix Things?

Most people deal in the present, rarely questioning the future beyond what they consider to be the very next event. The great majority of people…cannot imagine…a disastrous collapse as being in any way possible because surely, somehow, the governments of the world will fix things. The number of people whose eyes have been opened seems to be growing, however, and many of them are asking what the collapse will look like as it unfolds. What will the symptoms be? Here is how we see it. Read More »

28. I Repeat: “Economic disaster of unprecedented scale is coming!” Here’s Why

I get tired of preaching economic disaster and I am sure readers are just as tired of reading about it. Yet, it is coming regardless. The disaster will be of such importance that one cannot overemphasize it or warn too often about it. It will be a disaster of unprecedented scale. Read More »

29. Economic Collapse Is a Distinct Possibility – Are You Prepared (even a little bit)?

Do you share concerns about the world today, and the path we are headed on? Do you believe a total economic collapse is a real risk? Many would say it’s a concern but doubt it’s actually going to happen. It’s always been okay, so it probably always will be, is certainly the view that most of us hold. The thing is, though, that it hasn’t always been ok and it could easily happen again. Are you prepared for such an eventuality? Read More »

30. The 5 Stages of Economic Collapse: Financial, Commercial, Political, Social & Cultural – Where is the U.S. Now?

Having given a lot of thought to both the differences and the similarities between Russia and the U.S. – the one that has collapsed already, and the one that is collapsing as I write this – I feel ready…to define five stages of collapse to serve as mental milestones as we gauge our own collapse-preparedness and see what can be done to improve it.

31. We Are On the Precipice of Enormous Financial & Economic Change

We are on the precipice of enormous financial and economic change. It is not change for the good, especially for the United States. Excesses and mis-allocated resources of several generations are about to be exposed as modern industrial nations sink deeper into the economic hole they have dug for themselves. The purging of these economic mistakes will be painful, could create new wars as politicians attempt to deflect blame and may end up changing the political form of government in some countries.

32. The Average U.S. Citizen Is Clueless Regarding the Desperate Shape the Country Is In! Are You?

The corrosive nature of politics and government has destroyed the economy and the moral fiber of citizens. These issues are not insurmountable, but they are very close to being so. Their ramifications are potentially existential in nature: the average length of life, the very time span or cycle of a nation has been proven in history to be approximately 250 years.  Since the USA was born in 1776 this says we have about 14 years of life remaining for America. The way things are going we don’t doubt it. [Let me explain.] Words: 768

33. Nothing Can Be Done to Avoid Coming World-wide Depression! Here’s Why

Governments everywhere are becoming more distressed and desperate as economic realities dominate the political doublespeak. The world is at a dangerous point. Much of what we thought we knew and assumed regarding governmental behavior and economics is beginning to be reassessed. Governments of the world are out of money and out of ideas. The Ponzi scam that has been perpetrated for over fifty years is collapsing under its own weight. There are not enough suckers and capital left to sustain the fraud.

34. What Will the Outcome of All the QE Mean for the U.S. (and the World)?

At the risk of looking/sounding like some crazed religious fanatic usually seen carrying a sign or proclaiming: “Repent, the end is near,” I shall avoid the word “repent”. To me, the rest of that proclamation appears accurate and reasonable, at least with regard to our economic condition. [Let me explain:] Words: 1896

35. Current Distortion of Interest Rates is Unsustainable & Will Have Dire Consequences

Interest rates have been manipulated to keep them extremely low in an attempt to stimulate the economy but…unless deficits are dramatically reduced…. interest rates will eventually rise and government interest expense will double or triple from the amounts being paid today. That potentially triggers a debt death spiral, where government has to borrow more than otherwise expected. It also raises the credit risk and could ratchet interest rates up again. It has happened to Greece, Portugal, Spain and other European countries already this year and could well happen in the U.S. too. Words: 595
