The Financial Crisis Has Just Begun; Is The American Dream Is Over?

Stock-Markets / Financial Crisis 2016 Mar 22, 2016 - 06:29 PM GMT

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Stock-Markets

Global Central Banks have run out of ‘ammunition’. Since March 2008, Central Banks have cut interest rates 637 times and have purchased a staggering $12.3 trillion dollars’ worth of assets. There is not much more that they can do, and currently, the next ‘great crisis’ is upon us.

The global economy and the global financial system will continue to weaken before our very own eyes.


If we do experience a major “black swan event” that takes place, it will cause the bottom of the stock markets around the world to fall out, and this could happen at any given moment.

Chinese exports have seen their sharpest drop in almost seven years, adding to concerns over the health of the worlds’ second largest economy.  Exports havedropped sharply by 25.4% from the previous year, while imports fell 13.8%.  This weak data comes on the heels of Beijing registering their ‘ slowest economic growth in 25 years’.

The February 2016 trade figures reflected, are likely to raise new fears over China’s struggles to maintain economic growth, while implementing reforms and trying to shift towards more services and domestic spending.  China was considered ‘the engine of global growth’.

The FED has been looking at the ‘illusion of recovery’, but not the real deal.  If this were real, we would not have 100 million adult Americans without jobs. There are currently 46 million citizens on foods stamps as compared to 18 million that were in 2000.  Thirty-five percent of the population is receiving some form of public assistance. For so many years, Global Central Banks have been manipulating the financial marketplace with their ‘monetary voodoo’. They have convinced investors, around the world, to invest trillions of dollars into equities; artificially inflating the ‘equity asset class’. By creating money out of ‘thin air’ and pumping it into the financial system it devalues currencies and creates an artificial sense of a true economic recovery which so far has not been realized.

A shock to the financial system and ‘contracting economic growth’ from abroad will force the FED to delay further short interest rate increases and furthermore, reverse their course.  These ‘academic pinheads’ are so blinded by their tinker toy “Keynesians Macro-Model” that they cannot see the flashing red light warnings that are in front of them. Keynesian fiscal policies, which postulate that spending more of taxpayer money, that it would “stimulate” an ‘economic rebound’.  IT FAILED!

Last week, Chairwoman Dr. Yellen, was forced to wave ‘a white flag’.  The FED overestimated the strength of the global markets and consequently, will not be able to go ahead with its planned four short term interest rate hikes, in 2016.

The diminishing holdings of U.S. Debt by foreign governments is now a major issue that the FED must confront IMMEDIATELY!

This growing situation is going to result in the FED resuming ‘monetarizing public debt’.  Dr. Yellen is now beginning to listen to the advice of, her predecessor, Dr. Bernanke, and is now potentially embracing negative interest rates.

Central Bankers Do Not Understand ‘Booms and Busts’:

Central Banks still do not understand the ‘boom and bust cycles’. Falling stock prices will shortly be in the news.   Central Bankers still do not understand ‘deflation’, whether they are ‘Keynesians’ or some other variant, thereof.

The next ‘bubble’ that is yet to burst

Student financial debt is out of control.  Over $1.3 trillion in student debt is floating around in the current economic system.  The majority of this debt is a burden to younger Americans, who are entering into a job market with incredibly low wages.  Student financial loan delinquencies are rising dramatically.  Student debt is now the worst performing sector of loans in our economy. This is yet another ‘bubble’ that is yet to burst.   Momentum will catch up and the delinquencies will be the first cracks in the dam.

We now must embrace our own prosperity, our financial freedom and peace of mind in our daily lives. I accurately warned my past clients of the housing bust, the credit crisis and the ‘Great Recession’ more than one and a half years in advance.

It is now time to prepare for the inevitable. Gold has been used as money for more than 3,500 years while it doubles as a currency and a store of value. It has also proven to be a good hedge since the experiments with unbacked fiat money which began in Europe and the USA, in the 18th century have failed to store one’s value or wealth.

Gold is the purest form of ‘money’ and the oldest and most durable. The Gold Aurum Coin was already legal tender and the first coin to be ever used. The oldest gold coins are derived from the seventh century BC.

Investors use gold as a ‘store of value’ in their IRA or simply by holding physical bullion, which is explained in this gold investing guide. Gold metal offers the appearance of capital appreciation compared to devaluing currencies.  Gold has always had favorable liquidity throughout history and will become more liquid in the coming years are more of the world turn to gold as a store of value, hedge on inflation, and insurance policy incase the financial systems does actually implode one day.

While I talk about gold in this article, it is not the only place to not only maintain your wealth and buying power. In fact, there are a couple of other assets and trades which I think can make more money in far less time for us traders and active investors. In the last two weeks subscribers and myself closed 4 ETF trades for a total of 19.1% in profits.
