Based on information that I have received, things that I have been told, and thousands of hours of research that have gone into the publication of more than 1,300 articles about our ongoing economic collapse, I have come to the conclusion that a major financial collapse is imminent. Therefore, I am issuing a RED ALERT for the last six months of 2015. HERE‘s why.
The above is a quote from an article* by Michael Snyder (theeconomiccollapseblog.com) which was originally posted under the title The Economic Collapse Blog Has Issued A RED ALERT For The Last Six Months Of 2015 which can be read in its entirety (with an array of charts) HERE.
Snyder goes on to say in further edited excerpts from his original article:
(I have never done anything like this before. Ever since I started The Economic Collapse Blog in late 2009, I have never issued any kind of “red alert” for any specific period of time. As an attorney, I was trained to be level-headed and to only come to conclusions that were warranted by the evidence so this is not something that I am doing lightly.)
The period of relative stability that we have been enjoying is ending. What comes next is going to lead us into the worst period of time in modern American history.
I wish that I was wrong about this but the goal is not to scare you. My wife and I live our lives with absolutely no fear, and that is my desire for all of my readers. There is hope in understanding what is happening and there is hope in getting prepared. Personally, my wife and I believe that the greatest chapters of our lives are ahead of us, and I hope that you have a similar outlook.
We need a generation of people that are willing to rise up and do great things even in the midst of all the chaos and darkness that is coming. It is when times are the darkest that the greatest heroes are needed – so what will you choose to do when the next crisis comes? Will you cower in fear, or will you rise up to meet the challenge?

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?
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. Here’s why.
When the Fed eventually raises interest rates it will likely usher in an unprecedented era of financial market instability and accelerated economic decline, and consequently, heightened social unrest, geopolitical instability, and a host of other nasty events.

The attempt to solve what was essentially a global debt crisis with mountains of more debt means we will have another global financial crisis – the question is when rather than if – and this will have an impact on our economic recovery and on asset prices and hence the importance of diversification in terms of geography and where and how they are owned.
As we tip-toe near the edge of the third central bank generated financial bust of this century, there is absolutely no way of stopping the crash landing just ahead. Why? Because the central banks are so caught up in their own self-justifying group think that they are utterly incapable of seeing the massive financial derangement all about them – a casino that is blindly impelled to churn the secondary capital markets and inflate the price of existing assets to higher and higher levels until they ultimately roll-over under their own weight. Let me explain.
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.
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?

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.
